Cambridge Who's Who Complaint - Refund For Bogus Membership Offered To Me
UNIONDALE, NEW YORK -- Last Sept 06 I was offered an opportunity to be in the Cambridge who's who, a book which is supposed to reach millions and I sent my biography to them . I was told it would publish in I believe march but in the interim I found I was enrolled in the quote unquote "executive programs member2006-2007" honors edition, in Sept of 06 I had to pay upfront 189.00 And it was put on my credit card. I have spoken to numerous folks at this place and then was contacted by a mark for a "deal" on the upcoming edition this was around Jan 07, I wrote to Mr. Michael Robbins, CEO and told him of my dilemma. I have also spoken with Julie at who's who at 516-742-7907 ext 219 several times asking if I could get a refund , this is what I want I called today June 1, 2007 and left Julie another message and ask for a refund she has not contacted me , the problem I find with this is when they were trying to sell this program and I might add it started at around $600.00 For this and that and finally I was told 189.00 Was as low as they could go but was assured of national notoriety with my peers and could be used for networking.
I have a fairly good biography including being a nurse, certified colon therapist, foot reflexologist,former chairperson of the local republican party, write editorials, wrote monthly articles on herbs for several years, started an anti porn organization in 1989, stopped when my husband died very suddenly and lastly owned and operated a bottling plant in upstate NY, and started the Snapple line,(which belonged to our ex-partners) but we started it with them and bottled it and had a very successful operation both for chain stores, private label bottling,which by the way our ex-partners defaulted on the payout and left us with 28,000.00 In back real estate taxes and this was our retirement money. So you can see I am not just a fly by night but was taken by thinking I could get into a national registry which maybe would have enhanced my career in one of these fields, but I grant you I was taken I am too trusting.
I am writing to you because I want my refund I do not care about who's who or what their rules are I no longer want the book a cd or anything else they have to offer I want a check in the amount of 189.00 As soon as possible, I get nowhere with letters , calls or anything else I have resorted to your help with this matter.
