Complaint Review: SYMMETRY DIRECT - Bloomington Minnesota
SYMMETRY DIRECT Health and Wellness Center pressure MLM scam Bloomington, Minnesota
I am currently a college student, in the network development program. I moved to the twin cities in Oct 2009 and ever since I moved up here I have been getting post it stickers stuck to my car! Doesn't matter if I'm at school, at my apartment, or just out and about! All of the stickers say "Do you have an extra 8 - 12 hours per week to spend? Would you like to make an extra $800 to $1200 a week? Call 952-223-4520 no experience necessary will train." Last week I got another d**n sticker on my car! Aggrivated, I called the number to see what it was.
This dude answered and we chatted for a bit he said the interview time, directions, to dress professional, and expect to be there for about an hour. I figured alright I'm bored I'll go check it out.
Got to the place and everybody sat down to watch this 45min presentation about the company, the Jesus juice, and of course the opportunity! I have worked with direct sales before, with Vector Marketing, and was successful enough to come out of that deal with $400 even after spending $130 on the starter kit. IMMEDIATELY after the presentation was over everyone was put into a small group and order forms shoved at us. I figured alright I'll get the smallest starter pack to work with.
Only after filling out the order form were you even offered a taste of the, "Oh, so wonderful Genesis." What really confused me was that they have a product line of about 40 products, yet they're only trying to sell 1. Sounds fishy. At the time of ordering they didn't really say anything about training. They said there is a "power hour" that will help ya "be more successful" well that power hour happens to be at the same time I have class so too bad so sad I didn't go.
Then Friday I get a text from the dude saying, "Hey there's a conference call ya should listen to." So I listened to this conference call and just WOW. I can't believe that nut talked for 30min about how everyone should go to this "seeds of success" thing.
"Attending this seminar in Milwaukee, WI will increase your residual income by $2,000!" But, "It's not free to attend it costs $300 not including your hotel, food, and other expenses!" The part that really got me was, "If you don't have the money, just borrow somebody's credit card! Then pay them back later!" LOL then he said, "If you're not satisfied after attending 'seeds of success' I will refund your money!" I almost want to find the guy and tell him to give me my 30min of LIFE back from listening to that BS!
IMMEDIATELY after the conference the dude calls me and asks if I'm going to this "seeds of success". I said no, why would I want to go and listen to a bunch of nuts like that talk for 2 days? His tone of voice went from being super excited to super disappointed, then said, "Well this training is very important."
After that conversation I used the power of the google, and found some really disturbing information about this "seeds of success" training they're trying to force on people.
It's actually called the University of Success, or Rhino State University, and their website is www.uofs.biz it takes a while to load and navigate because it's so messed up. Just the design of the website screams SCAM!!! It shows their next "seeds of success" workshop dates, and that it costs $300 to register. The part that scared the hell out of me was their FAQ page, that's a Microsoft Word Document, I'm guessing they saved it wrong and just threw it up there anyways. For a frequently asked question they have, "How does a new (or existing) RSU member register using a credit card belonging to a friend or family member?" Then in the downloads part of the website they have a form to fill out using a third-party credit card!
Another great feature I found on this awful website was their photo gallery, from all of their "seeds of success" seminars dating back to September 2009. I even spotted the crew from the Bloomington MN office in these pictures.
I've lost $173 as of right now. The lesson learned, is NEVER TRUST A MAN IN A SUIT!
