*Consumer Comment: Update about National Imaging Distributors

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

This is an update to all victims of Transnet Wireless/Nationwide Cybersystems. Yes, it is true that the FTC did shut them down. What this means is that they froze the assets of the company until the case can be heard. Does this mean you are out your money? Maybe not. We were contacted by the FTC earlier this year after we visited the Miami FBI office and filed a report last year in September. What we found out, much too late, was that the BBB is no help in these matters concerning any of these companies as the BBB is an organization that charges the people who belong to the organization, and they do not function as an independent group, rather they cater to the membership upon whom they rely for their funding. I would suggest that you contact the Atlanta, GA FTC office to file a complaint. They are the only entity with the ability to shut these people down and ensure that they do not take part in any more consumer ripoffs. I would also be wary of a new "opportunity" that I saw on TV last night, that one being the Digital Photo Express, being sold by a company called National Imaging Distributors, whose headquarters just happen to be in another Miami, Florida suburb. Personally, the state of Florida needs to be proactive when it comes to any companies like these, as they all set up shop there. There are many reports on line concerning the practices of these companies, including one from WSVN TV, where they tried to interview Paul Pemberton. It turns out he had a prior criminal past, and this was part of the charges the FTC brought against the company. I would suggest that you not spend anymore money on class action suits, as they only ones who are guaranteed to make any money are the attorneys. There is no cost in contacting the FTC and you stand a better chance of getting something back through them as everyone else has to line up behind the governments case.

Update about National Imaging Distributors

AUTHOR: Tony - (U.S.A.)

I recently spoke with the editor of this fine website concerning a comment that I made about National Imaging Distributors, who market a product called the "Digital Photo Express." Apparently someone there follows this website because my comment about "being wary" upset someone there. I made no accusations about this company, except to note that they were located only 6 miles from the Transnet Wireless headquarters( a true statement, check Mapquest). The basis for my comments about this company is that it appears that several key players from Nationwide Cybersystems and Transnet Wireless are now working there, the most notable being Marty Ritzer, the location expert for the above companies. Many of you have written about him and others, including Dan Terpak in your complaints concerning the aforementioned companies. The editor and I talked about the analogy of just because someone may have worked at a previous company, later to be found out practicing bad business, doesn't make them guilty. I believe that is true, however, I based my comments on the fact that these individuals have already been listed as having been employed with Nationwide, and later Transnet Wireless, which as you know had the assets frozen by the Federal Trade Commission in October, 2005. While it may just be coincidence, or just a run of "bad luck", I merely pointed out that the same players keep showing up working at these companies, which later on many of you will undoubtedly file a report on, just as I did concerning Nationwide Cybersystems and Transnet Wireless. In fact, Mr. Ritzer was our "location expert" in trying to place the machines. At the least the website for this machine makes no claims to any potential, or "unlimited income potential" as the other companies did. But if you look at it, you can already get these services at Walgreen's or Wal-Mart developing digital photos. So, to the people of National Imaging Distributors, if I offended you, please accept my humble apology. However, as experience should have taught you by now, if you are continuing to practice deceptive methods, it will just be a matter of time. Maybe it's time to work in another field.
