I am just sick to my stomach about this. I tried to do my research, contact BBB, Attorney Generals office, looking for any indication that this was a bad deal. I even did a search for complaints. Couldn't find anything bad about the company. Then when things went south, the word scam came to me! I did the search again using SCAM and low and behold, here it is. I am so mad. I spent my life savings to get into this business!

I have seen a class action suit. It just costs more money, right? How do we get any of our money back, with out having to invest more???

I'm going to try to start a Yahoo group about Transnetscams , so look for it in a few days

What chance do we have if the FTC shut them down???

I want to sue these guys. I want revenge. I want my money back! Call me.

This information got posted this afternoon from one of Transnet's Vendors who maintains the software on the kiosk. It gives information for those folks who has units in the field or still need to install them...They were kind(??)enough to list an attorney who is resonsible for all answering inquiries about this investigation...Hope this helps as I have 3 machines myself.
