In late December 2004 I invested in what I thought was a great business opportunity I found on the internet. I had been laid off a few months prior and used up much of my savings. Not being able to get a job I looked into starting starting my own business. I thought I did some due diligence.
I looked at BBB and NBOB reports and both reports gave the company a good rating. Next I contacted The Global Connection and spoke to George Garrigus of Arizona at 1-800-475-8170 x 104.
He gave me a list of affiliates around the country. I called most of them and there stories were varried. The following is the list.
Jodi Aaron, TX 888-472-6568
John Allen, NJ 800-914-7074
Ann Bailey, SC 866-629-5076
Lisa & Jim Bates, LA 800-713-1201
Corey Fields, PA 888-248-6354
Bill George, FL 888-241-7784
David Harris, NC 877-278-3132
Trevor Manning, TX 866-313-5132
Brandon Miller, NY 877-272-0464
Andrea Solomon, NY 888-286-0777
Pattie Sommers, CT 888-350-2391
John Weston, Australia 800-959-3810
Bob Passman, CA 800-853-8852
After speaking with these people on about December 17 2004 I invested the rest of my savings in the amount of $7950.00 plus $210.00 for internet axcess for a total of $8160. It wiped my out and I am totally embarresed by the situation.
After I invested they did assign me a "trainer" a Mike Gray. 800-475-8170. I also had contact with Karen Rogers
I tried the business for the next 2-3 weeks with no success. I then contacted the company several times to try to get my money back with no success. I then contacted the BBB case# 27041504 and the NBOB.
Just like everyone else knows the company has totally shut down all means of communication including the website and all phone numbers.
I don't have the money or means to go after these criminals by myself but I would love to join a class action suit against these people. I would be happy to offer any other information to anyone involved in proscuting this case.
