Premier Designs - What A Scam
Fashion Jewelry - Complaint
DALLAS, TX -- This company takes advantage of women and they should not be allowed to do what they do. The startup fee is crazy expensive and doesn't even include samples- those are extra. The pieces are GARBAGE- they are NOT MADE IN THE US. I emailed Premier and asked them specifically and they would not answer my questions but skirted the issue The pieces fall apart constantly and for a $50 necklace I would expect WAY more- save your money and go to a jewelry store and buy something that will last. They make jewelers pay for MANY things like credit card fees, fees for each show you hold and then encourage you to keep buying more samples and more products and before you know it, you have made NOTHING. I was a designer in Premier after a year and had 10 people under me. I sold over 30,000 my first (and only) year. It is an absolute scam. Stay away from it. After one year with 10 people under me, I barely made anything. They also fail to mention the $490 self employment tax that you will have to pay the feds. You pay for all return shipping (which is a lot because the pieces are JUNK), and they rope you in with numerous brainwashing phone calls and "rallies" and trust me, they are good at brainwashing you into believing you are selling a good product and "enriching" womens lives. You are basically overcharging people for an item, scamming others into joining the company and its all about pressure, pressure, pressure. I couldn't sleep at night thinking about the tactics this company pushes on weak women. And that is it, they prey on weak, low confidence, low self esteemed women who they can rope into doing this "wonderful business" . It is all garbage.- I could not sell another $5 necklace for $50 if I had to save my life- I felt awful charging people these prices. I am sure that Premier will find these posts and delete them, but I will keep posting them so people know the truth- it is freedom of speech afterall. It is not 50% profit that you make - bottom line. And they don't allow you to sell online at all either. They push you to ostracize yourself from friends and family with their "book a thons" and pushing you to ask, ask, ask for people to have parties and buy jewelry- they teach you that no doesn't mean no- it means not now. Really? I don't think so. The people at the very top are getting very rich from this so yes it is a pyramid scheme, even though they will tell you it is not and give you a handout showing you why it isn't. BS- it is a pyramid scheme. If I was a designer and thats the top 3% of the company and I made a measly 9,000 this year- then tell me how its not a pyramid scheme?? BS- it is a pyramid scheme.? luckily, I am a well educated person (a teacher) and I was strong enough to see thru the tactics and the fake-ness of it all and I got out. I wasn't going to pay my $350 renewal fee - no thank you Premier, you can take your business elsewhere, to prey on a weaker, less educated woman who needs some confidence. Ive got all the confidence I need in life and I know that I DONT WANT TO BE A PART OF A CULT LIKE THIS!
