RBM Merchandising Informative - Fraudulent advertising
ILLINOIS -- RBM MERCHANDISING, advertised in the FAMILY CIRCLE MAGAZINE. RBM has no telephone number or mailing address. The object of the company are catalogs with long stemmed light roses to be purchased on a large scale. They were suppose to supply the catalogs,(I received a single sheet of paper) postage, peel and stick labels. I sent them a check in the amount of $120 for 1000 catalogs and a list of names.
As customers placed an order, I would sent half the monies RBM. If they scammed these people I would be responsible for receiving monies and not supplying product.
I asked legitimate questions and this was there hand written reply, "Sales tax has been paid by us already, 1099 form is used by employees only. We are not employers, you are self-employed. See schedule C in tax book, if you have a profit. You deal direct with your customers any NSF checks are your responsibility. We wait 30 days for clearance as with yours."
I believe RBM sent me the 1000 individual mail order sheets with the peel and stick labels as BBB has been involved. At the bottom of the order form is says, "DISTRIBUTED BY" and my return sticker is placed. RBM seems to be a fraudulent company. I would receive monies from distributors, send half the money to RBM and I could be in big trouble if RBM does not fulfill there obligation.
Thank you, rozy
