Yes, I ponied up the $12K and lost. Everything was so smooth, including the 3 company references I spoke to. None of which are in business any longer and none of which even have the same phone number.
It happened pretty quick for me. I ordered business cards, bought a list followed the plan laid out by Joe Langer only to be told by the Chiropractors I was contacting that someone else had contacted them. So I called Joe and all the numbers provided me to investigate and was of xourse told it was a mistake, they were confusing other possible supplement sales people with this great opportunity. I went back at it and after weeks of frustration and my second call to Joe for the promised help and direction was met with avoidance and when finally reaching him, no answers.
It was then that I attempted to sell my territory or at the very least my supplies. That is when I knew I had been taken. None of the "booming businesses" Joe used as references wanted to buy my supplies at 50% off. I had been had.
What followed next was worse, as I searched the internet to try and find other successful UMN distributors I found the guy that had had the territory I bought. He did his best to converse with me but made it clear he had a confidentiality agreement in place and assured me he was out of the UMN distribution business, he had settled with Joe Langer although he wouldn't disclose how much for.
To make matters just a bit more insulting about 4 months ago I was contacted by a recruiter for good old Joe who offered to sell me the same territory I had already purchased before. You guessed it, I can't get Joe to return my calls.
I got up today and looking at these boxes of materials just got ticked off so I figured it was my duty to let the world know about yet another rip-off artist preying on people that are down and out. I have a family and had been out of work for many months when I borrowed that money to invest in my future, Joe Langer should be in jail, in my humble opinion.
