Complaint Review: Vemma
Vemma Global Pro Systems Pyramid Marketing Scheme for "nutrition" and "weight loss" products much better served by eating fruits and vegetables and Weight Watcher's , Internet
*Consumer Comment: Vemma Business
A week later, I got a call from them. For multiple times I tried to find out what they wanted me to rep, what the ads would look like (ever seen those terrible long ads for "nutrition" items? uggghhh...) and they wanted me to pay for a disk and brochure to be sent to me. For the Fed Ex fees, $10.99.
Then they insisted I call let them know I got it and they would call me at a certain time. Had to confirm it 24 hours ahead. Had to read the brochure and fill out my goals, and watch the DVD.
Excuse me, write my goals in a brochure I now have to send back to them? What kind of h*o-doo is that? Read on....
The DVD and brochure was allllll hype. No substance. Had no idea what they wanted me to sell, or how..... And they kept stressing you had to follow their system or else. That's the next red flag....marketing is always customer - not company - driven if you are to succeed. So they were into mind control. That's precisely what it appeared.
Next? The DVD started out with all kinds of talk about the times we find ourselves in...instead of what you enjoy and how good their product is and what needs it serves and how it can help people. Very, very negative. Another mind control piece of work.
There was no substance in all of it. Which means one thing: Something is very wrong.
Their phone call did not come through properly past the time set and I got a message whining about "I could have scheduled others" and "we had a time set" and etc. I called back. Took them awhile to put me on ANOTHER hype message from a guy that told me nothing. One person told me they were Vemma products only after I pressed them.
I told them I was not interested. They pressed me to hear another presentation next week.
I called back after reading reports here and especially about them charging on your credit card with no allowing of it to be done....and told them specifically not to, that I didn't want to move forward. They said they wanted their materials back. I told them "a Brochure and a Disk?" and they said I had only paid for "Shipping and Handling".
Yes, they are a ripoff. Thank you to everyone who made the posts they did.
