Independent Mailing Services/Independent Marketing Exchange Inc Complaint - Envelope Stuffing Fraud

Review by williava on 2007-06-30
LEEDS POINT, NEW JERSEY -- I purchased the following products as advertised in December 2006 and did not get any monetary sales in return. The only person who seemed to have benefited was the fraudulent company stated above -- by profiting from the following sales sent to their company by me:

Ordered 300 mailing lists = $30.00
Ordered 300 post cards = $15.00
Ordered 3 short web addresses = $45.00
Stamps = $63.40
Ink Stamps = $15.00
Use of Xerox machine at Staples = $33.00
Tape = $2.00

Needless to say this scam was a total waste of my money and time, since I was getting up at 4:30AM to process the following postcards on their behalf: "Mystery Shoppers", "Profit Maker", and "Success at Home". My Distributor ID# given to me was 31740.

I thought nearly everyone knew that "stuffing envelopes" was a scam and an old one at that. Twenty years ago they used to have advertisements tacked on telephone poles.

Not much, except learn from mistakes.

Why do you think some people keep falling for them over and over?

It's like being Politically Correct.

Political Correctness is directly derived from classical Marxism, and is in fact merely a. variant of Marxism.

Have we all become Marxest?

This has to be a spoof posting, because no one is stupid enough to fall for this scam.
