PMI, STORES ONLINE RIPOFF! Orem Utah
I went to a Stores Online Training Seminar in September,2003 and after much thought, my husband and I decided what they were offering sounded real and that they could help us with an online business. I gave them a downpayment of $300, left with the materials I had just bought, then went home and began to read and try to set up the websites.
Within a few days we got a call from PMI stating they were calling to offer us fee-based help to get our sites going. I told them that Stores OnLine told me they would not give out our info to any other company, and that we had just paid $5199 for that service included with our websites. I went online to the SO chat and was told I DID know they would send them to me, that it was part of their script. So I kept ignoring the calls from PMI and tried to build my first site. I still have not completed it as it was not user friendly, and I cannot pay Stores Online $50/hour to help me with it.
I have been reading many complaints from very dis-satisfied customers. All of which, just like me, were given impressions of what we paid for that was just not true. Also there have been many claims with the BBB, and your site states there is only ONE still open ... why? I want my deposit and my 3 payments returned, I want to void this contract.
The knowledge supposedly given that gives them the no cancelation, no refund rights, is nothing that I did not already know or could not easily get for free off of the Internet. Their claims to that are not valid. I acquired no new understanding of this kind of business. It was the idea they gave me that once I paid for these sites they would be there to get me going and become successful. They say they do not refund to detour possible theft of information. They have stolen from me and from many others and they need to be stopped. They are a big business and I am but a small voice, but the BBB needs to intercede for the clear morality of this issue, they are the cheats, and the thieves, and the United States should protect it's own.
STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business? Click here to understand more of what consumers and business alike are saying about the BBB. You decide. ..Remember. The BBB membership is not earned, it's paid for!
