i think its been couple of months by now. i have received the phone one day, and this agent was telling me about home based business. i've been listening and the agent , she all of the sudden she was telling me how her husband makes very good money from start up essentials. and then they sent me some files through computer internet. some kind of lease form. i just filled it out as what they told me to do.

and then after they were telling me they are going to record me accepting the agreement. and while we were going to agreement i heard the lease is not cancellable . so i said hold on. i told them to give me a day to think and find out what am i doing. and they were telling me no you cant, if you hang up right now you can never get into this home base business again
they were so good.

they sound very professioenal. made me feel like i was making a big mistake losing contact with them. and they rushed me to say yes to the questions they ask me. so i did say yes. how dumb i am.

later i ended up paying 115 per month for a binder and some recorded cds.i tried to go through what ive received. but omg they were some crabs.soo i decided to cancel. i called them up told them i wanted to cancel and of course no they would say. so that after i went to my bank. and i stopped them taking away my money from my bank.

then after a while they are now sending me some letters with overpriced late fee, and the amount i havent paid for 3 months, and now they are telling me they are going to bring up collection agency on me. somebody please help me out.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds


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

POSTED: Saturday, September 08, 2007

Hello. I used to work for the company for about 7 months. It was terrible there, they changed that pay range on us, thats how we were paid, by the number of transfers we did in a day, or good credit people, and had some cheezy dinner once a moth for the top reps.

To answer you report, your in a non cancelable lease, and you are told and called on three seperate occations by the phone rep, a compliance officer, and by the leasing company that you cannot cancel the lease, there is no buyer's remorse. You cannot cancel it, and since it is a lease, its a $5K mark against your credit if you skip payments on it.

The only thing I can suggest is follow through with starting your business and do "The Journey" educational program, there is good points in there, and good partners to help you start up. Good luck.
