Struggling to make ends meet on a fixed income imagine our delight whwen we saw an ad in a local free paper saying you could make up to $500 a week working from home.

We immediately called the number and were advised we would be sent a'book' containing companies looking for homeworkers. All the companines had allegedly been thoroughly vetted ''. We were required to pay $46 for the book. After much debate we decided to go with it and ordered the book.
In due course the book arrived and it was. as stated cover to covewr with companies supposedly looking for homeworkers.

We decided on a company called "String Art', as this seemed to offer the highest turnover. we contacted them and they requested $20 for the start up kit. The start up kit arrived in the form of an e-mail from a character calling himself Dean Lattimer, it consisted of approx 20 pages of very complex instructions on how to assemble the required 'string art' . It also gave a list of required materials.

We set to with a will, going first to a well known household supplies store for the timber we needed. Alsofor the thousands of tacks that were required.
We then trried to track down the thread needed to complete the pictures we would be producing!.
The instructions called fro 'Cro-Sheen' thread in five different colors. It stated in the instructions that Walmart would have it. So went to Walmart, then Joannes fabrics, then we called K-mart. then we went through just about every fabric and ccraft shop in the phone book. Yes Walmart did use to stock the stuff..16 YEARS AGO!

So we e-mailed Dean Lattimer, requesting an alternative to use...No answer.We sent another e-mail saying we werent very happy could he please hurry with the information we requested....NO ANSWER
ANd another ....NO ANSWER
The next one was promise of legal action and reporting to the better business bureau....heres the reply we got..:-

Hey Loser,
You are a blameless first class loser! Not a ounce of
responsibility has been taken on your end. Just blame. Hit the road you loser.

So just be aware, oh i did think of paying Mr Dean LAttimer a visit, but the only address you ever get is a PO BOX.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Here's my companies rebuttal 1-800-238-1693

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

POSTED: Saturday, January 10, 2009

First, Make sure all persons know We only asked and they paid $19.95 for kit Not $20.00 as they Falsely stated to you. Not $46.00. $19.95 is all I have every ask for membership and kit. It does keep the lights on
and offers him along with many other persons the opportunity.
Second, please explain your comment "as this seemed to offer the highest turnover." what does that mean? Who made this statement to you? What date? This is another misleading statement.
Third, I Not a character or cartoon as you think. Here's your statement "character calling himself Dean Lattimer"
Fourth, Here's another False lie from DioneandOwen
Jordan. All materials from the String Art still can be purchased to this date. Lowes has the #18 gauge brad nails with or without heads. Lowes has all grade #3 plywood. Wal-mart has Glue. If Wal-mart makes a decision to discontinue the Knit-cro Sheen brand which it is a brand. You need Crocket Thread. I just just googled "chrochet Thread" and here's a sample list of companies, and the list goes on and on. Another example of another Lie!
Fifth, As always you have over 5 ways of immediately contacting me with any questions. 1 2. Go to middle top is contact form. 3. At in center of page you will see "click here for Live boldchat". 4. 1-800-238-1693. 5. Mailing address 500 N. Main St. Bellefontaine,OH 43311. All persons can contact us in these ways. And I guarantee you 100% you will get a answer to all your questions. Another False Lie, from these people.
Sixth, We have been in business for over 21 years. I could have Not stayed in business without the ethical guidelines to do business. All information,questions and terms are clearly stated at our site for your review. We withhold Nothing from On-one . This should give another example of persons spreading false lies, defamation of character and company, deception and falsifying lies to destroy my company. Thanks for your time to explain our company position.

thank you,
Dean Lattimer
500 N. Main St.
