*REBUTTAL Owner of company: Yes, I exist
I began working with Vendstar about a year ago and it was at about month 4 I realized how difficult this would be to make real money. That was not the case when I asked Barry Stern the question Can I make money in this business? He told me basically that it would be very simple and would take very little of your time.
First of all the initial investment of $14,995 was a bit extreme, but I was told it would be worth it. HA! Then I purchased the 50 machine package with the idea that each machine would bring in on average of $30 - 50 a month when placed by the "expert locating service". I spent another $2000+ for that.
Before I joined, Barry Stern told this service was very inexpensive. Another Lie.
The representative made it sound like you would triple your initial investment within the first year...more lies!
Most of the units only brought me an average of $2-4.50 a month, mainly because APS placed the in the worst spots. Almost like I was SET UP TO FAIL. Since I have never been a salesman I thought it would be better to have professionals place them for me. I use the word "professional" loosely.
Oh yeah, and as for their assistance. Well, the Operator manual that they give is junk. Maybe I will use it to hold up the crappy machines I have.
Also, has anyone checked them on the BBB, they have 16 complaints. I am going to be #17.
I have tried to contact Barry Stern again, but he will not return my calls. Wonder why. Guess he knew it was a scam all along! I wonder what Ned Weaver, President & CEO, would say about this, if there really is a Ned Weaver
