Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I purchased six sites yesterday in Concord California. I decided I did not wish to do business with SOL after I researched SOL and saw some of the complaints on it.

I was led to believe the company was a reputable company but I found it had changed names several times. I feel all of this is deceptive business practice.

The product CD never worked correctly and the so called proprietary info. on the site was available anywhere for free.

I spoke with a representative of SOL and he told me I could not have a refund as I had signed all right to refund away.

I spoke with my credit card company and have told them why I want to dispute this charge. I tried to get a refund to my credit card of the full amount under the FTC 3 day cooling of period and am still fighting it.

I do not think I will be able to cancel through Visa.
I have contacted the FTC and California Attorneys office in regard to this issue.

Washington state just posted a Cease & Desist against StoresOnline. Here is link:

For those of you from California please contact the California Attorney General. The form is at: . I encourage everyone to contact there Attorney Generals and Kent Nelson at the Utah Division of Consumer Protection as he is preparing a case against them, so please contact him quickly.

Do something or just resign yourself to being ripped off. These people need to be stopped.
