ACN Complaint - ACN & one of their reps
I attended a meeting by a so called 'friend' last week, where they said if I invest $500 of my money, I would see $3000 in return next month. (Period)
So it was a no brainer to go to the meeting and see what the so called 'ground-level'/'foundation-level' investment was about.
What made me to believe this was a scam, was the incorrect use of words and hype. After the meeting I did some research of the company, my thoughts were confirmed.
1- the representative said she just started out 3 months ago, and is currently making 7,000 dollars a month. The real Truth is = after searching her name on the internet, she has been in the business for 19 years!!! So even if I asked to see her pay stub, the figures she made would be incorrect to the amount of time she stated to of invested. Who knows if she was making that much at all, and she could also be an inside appointed sales representative of the company. who knows. don't trust M.H.D. off the bat.
2- she tried to tell us how great the video phone is that ACN sells. She hyped that it's only $100 to buy and then only $30 a month to subscribe. All you have to do is plug it into the internet.
And then have someone else buy the phone too so they can talk and see each other.
This product all together is scandalous. I can buy a video VOIP phone for 100 to 200 dollars on the internet, and use it for ***FREE*** if using Skype to Skype calling, and Skype offers a $2-$3 plan a month to make calls outside of skype.
I feel that ACN is taking advantage of people.
My other feelings are that how can I sell a product I don't believe in, which is not the best product for anyone. That in itself is scandalous.
3. All you have to do is invest in $500! -- yeah right!!! not.
after listening to the representative and other ppl who where in the program, they kept repeating how they have to make a lot of follow up calls and hustling to get their accounts to payback.
Not to mention there is a $30 additional fee to maintain your website, and another $150 to $200 annual fee to stay a member. And you have to buy into the program with 3 services. I currently only have one cell phone service... why add 2 more services a month to add to my bills?
Well I didn't get suckered into this pyramid scam. I did my research first.
If you want to invest in a money making career- invest in yourself! I am hitting the books.
