 a young man came to my home on 4/22/10. he stated he was with ULTIMATE SOLUTIONS, a company that sells magazines to help raise money for inner city youth. he gave a sob story about these poor children. once he knew we wanted to help we invited him into the home and purchased a 1 year subscription. he tried getting us to but more because he stated he would get a bonus if we did. we refused because the yearly subscription was already costing us $119.00. we finshed filling out the receipt and it started to pour rain outside.... we asked him what he was going to do, because he got dropped off in the neighborhood by some driver. we let him use our cell phone, so he would be able to get picked up... he still had to walk a half mile down the street to catch his ride.... it has been 2 months... i have not received any magazine. the numbers are false on the receipt. no one answers the phone and there are no viocemail... i went onto mthe BBB to check them out. they also gave a listing of 6 more telephone #.. everyone i tried kept ringing, was no longer in service, or the mailbox was full. i filled out a complaint, with the BBB and with the police station in my town. these boys come around every year, they will be arrested the next time i spot them in my town.... DO NOT PURCHASE ANY MAGAZINES from people selling them door to door... they will rob you blind!

AUTHOR: Ken Sarno - ()

It is true this is a true Scam!  We ordered two magazines on June 28, 2014 for 180.00 receipt 596144


Never received anything.  All numbers to the company disconnected.  No way to reach them.  Supposedely it was to benefit inner city youth.  I am researching how to go after them legally to get my money back.  Any suggestions greatly appreciated.  Shame on this Company!  Ken Sarno

Not Urban Development Solutions

AUTHOR: Mr. Opusunju - ()

I sincerely apologize for the confusion, but the complaint is directed at the wrong Company. Maurice McClain is the President of Urban Development Solutions. No affiliation with Ultimate Solutions or any other variation of the name. Their are more programs like U.D.S but none are U.D.S. 

The magazine industry has opened doors for alot of underpriviledged youths, young adults, adults and seniors with the programs they are providing for individuals all across the nation. Needless to say that everyone does't come from the same walk of life or background. Some of society needs motivation, someone to believe in them and give them a chance or second chance for that matter, in life. Which is exactly what these programs provide.

Like any business, there will be complaints. It's how these complaints are taken care of that seperate good businesses from bad businesses. We at Urban Development Solutions take pride in our work ethic and have an integrity that we stand by. We have a zero tolerance policy and stand by correcting our mistakes where they are made.

Our receipts all have our website printed on them for tracking of orders as well as contacting our customer service department for any discrepencies that may occur. As well we have a 1-800 number for customer service, tech support, agent assistance, employment oppurtunities, etc. ( uunity.biz , urbands.com , 1-855-91URBAND )

As well our reciepts all state 90-120 days should be expected for delivery. We aren't the distributing company therefore the time frame of the deliveries are completely out of our control. If we could we would personally deliver the subscriptions to each and every one of our backers but unfortunately we can't. There is however a tracking number in the top right hand corner of each of our receipts where your purchase can be tracked through the website that is as well provided on each of our receipts.

Again I apologize for the misunderstanding but we at Urban Development Solutions is of no affiliation with Development Solutions or any other variance of our organizations name. However if you are still dissatisfied you can reach any one in our complaints department or customer service representatives at 1-855-91URBAND where we will more than gladly help in any way possible.

I thank you for your time and ask that you remove my employers name from this blog if anyway possible. I understand the mix up but these misrepresentations of our organization are stopping the original design of the program that he created for those having a hard time or needing a second chance in life. We all have needed a second chance in life at one time or another. This program is doing just that for alot of young individuals who truly need it and are growing and progressing in life because of it.

Thank You, Urban Development Solutions, Customer Service

I got my magazine after four months and a call to them

AUTHOR: me - ()

Yes, I finally got my subscription, but had to call them. Guess we fell through the cracks.

I would say that they should help their employees to focus more on future instead of the past, but just a suggestion. They should also know that selling things for which there are greater perceived demand can probably help them to be a lot more successful. It reminds me of how kids used to sell newspapers door to door, and few people actually bought newspapers anymore due to the internet.

So, maybe in addition to magazine sales, they could also try pest control sales, etc... maybe not, but just my 2 cents.

In response to your false allegations

AUTHOR: Ultimate Unity - (United States of America)

We pride ourselves on the fact that our trainees and employees reap
the true benefits of our business organization. Agent commissions and
bonuses provide them with an above average income and exposure to places
and people they would probably never encounter in life. Beyond
sustaining our business and growing our recruitment base, our proceeds
go directly to where they are needed most.... training, motivating, and
empowering people to change their lives for the better. Urban
Development Solutions was formed with one primary goal in mind: to
enhance the lives of young adults by teaching them to help themselves
through an education that builds communication skills
and self-confidence. It is the undying dedication to this
objective that has allowed UDS to positively impact the lives of
countless young adults throughout the United States. Ultimate Unity is a magazine clearing house that we utilize to clear our subscriptions. In your rip off report, did you state the time difference between where you are and Indiana where Ultimate Unity is located? No, you did not. If we were a scam, why am I responding to this rip off report? And why has your order been cancelled? The next time that you decided to get on a public medium with egregious information about a company that you know nothing about, make sure that you have all of your facts correct. What you have done is illegally slandered our name and reputation in the community.

Who is Ultimate Solutions?

AUTHOR: Ultimate Unity - (United States of America)

Hello sir/mam. We are Ultimate Unity, a magazine clearing house, not Ultimate Solutions. All of the phone numbers for Ultimate Unity are in working order and have been since it's inception. On the company's website under contact us, it states the business hours. Ultimate Unity does not have a company voice mail system at this time. On the receipts, the delivery time is printed in bold letters, PLEASE ALLOW 90-120 DAYS FOR DELIVERY. You can track your orders here..www.uunity.biz. Please provide me with your receipt number and the sales date, and I will track this order. I'm sorry if you feel as though you were robbed but I can assure you, you were not. There is definitely a lack of communication here, but robbery? Ultimate Unity is just a subscription clearing house for various magazines sales organizations. If we were robbing you, I would not be responding to this rip off report. Had you went to the company's website, and contacted us thru that medium, you would have been refunded or received your order. Whichever course you would have chosen. www.urbands.com is the company website for the sales organization. I will be awaiting your response. Please realize the time difference when contacting customer service at Ultimate Unity. Thank you.
