AdPockets Business Card Displays — Refusal to refund deposit!
I M from New Zealand. I was in the process of becoming a distributor for AdPocket's business card displays in my country. I have been dealing with Kyle Fultz who is the owner and creator of AdPockets. I felt that Kyle put quite a bit of subtle pressure on me to make payment for the products I ordered before Christmas. I could only manage a $2000 USD deposit. Another person from NZ was interested in working with Kyle and I, but as I was promised to be the sole NZ distributor for ADPockets, I was not that sure. I did eventually agree to it but sort of felt let down and manipulated by Kyle. In the end, I decided not to proceed with being a NZ distributor but still wanted to go ahead with an order for a smaller amount. Kyle already had the $2000 i wired him the week before. when i asked to change my order, still using the $2000 credit I had, he refused stating that I had "agreed" the deposit was non-refundable if I canceled. But I didn't cancel - I only wanted to change down my order.
He is now refusing to give me back my $2000 (which is $2600 NZ Dollars) and will not answer my emails. I have even said I would be willing for him to take 10% to cover his costs and let me have the rest. He seems to be hell-bent on making me pay, yet I have nothing for my money! Think twice about dealing with this company as its owner seems very money hungry and greedy and is not ethical or honest!! I plan to fight this! Will let you know how I get on.
