Company Alleges that you pay $500.00 to get all the information and training you need to go out and talk to merchants to get them to buy or lease the credit card terminals and once these terminals are in place you recieve a commission on every transaction that the merchant does, then on top of this you are asked if you would be interested in participating in what they call a "call blast that is where they supposedly call a bunch of new merchants and entice them in to signing up with Bank Card Empire and for every merchant that they enroll you will be signed up with them, and this only costs another $300.00 to which you see no results or feedback.

    So, Michael Reeder, how did it works out with Mr. Robin Phillips, if that is his real name?????

    TSP Solutions is a company with an agent named Christina Saldana. Christina Saldana is the Notary for Bankcard Empire/Davidan Corporation. If you are able to get your credit card company to do a chargeback of funds that Bankcard Empire/Edgemont Productions charged to your account, then TSP Solutions steps in as a "Collection" Agency" and threatening you with non-payment. This in essence destroys your credit profile if you don't give into the threat.

    Contact the Senators and House of Representatives for the state of Arizona, and ask them why there are very few regulations on these so called business. And why there are so many operating out of Arizona? Get a Congressional investigation going on these businesses in Arizona.

    Edgemont Productions isn't even a licensed, registered business in Arizona. The only Edgemont Productions I could find is in Marshall, Texas run by a woman named Christina Anderson.

    The Federal Trade Commission who investigates these types of business and the cold calls they produce, are down from 2000 employees to 1000, and they don't have enough people to keep up with the reports. These businesses are working on that by staying under the radar, unless people start to fight back, like they are now, then the companies started threatening defamation litigation. Deep pockets, especially since they are using someone else's money, and as long as people keep getting entrapped in their "program", "call blast", "e-mail blasts", and "sure thing" scripted messages, they will have more money to punish the people who complain when their chain is jerked. Bad Master, Good Dog, makes into bad dog.

    concerned bce affiliate Aug 25, 2009

    after reading all these texts its worse than i figured i am an affiliate of bce and i was approached vea cell phone from a company representing bce with the opportunity for a fast track into the sales business. 5000 dollors for 2500 call blasts and 2500 e-mail blasts to new merchants looking for credit card processing. I thought what a great plan make some money from this ad investment so i could expand my ad campaign to the google forum. I started for bce on the 14th of may and haven't seen a dime. The customer service number that Bob Scott (the sales person representing bce) gave me was the number for bce customer service. Every time i call i GET A RUN AROUND and a very polite ( I HAVE SENT AN e-MAIL TO THE SALES DEPARTMENT AND YOU SHOULD BE GETTING UR BI WEEKLY REPORTS IN ABOUT TWO WEEKS) this friday august 28th will be the 4th time i should be getting my reports in about two weeks. asfter this post i will be calling the number in the above texts to get some answers. If bce isn't to blame then it was a company that they had to authorize to sell ads for them and they need to take the issues i have and resolve them. The 5000 dollors was invoiced to edgemont productions but all the faxs and documentation was sent through bce. I was promissed not garanteed of course that i wouldn't have to sell anything that this call blast program would pay for its self and even if it didn't you would think that they could have sold to at least 110 out of 5000 merchant contacts that are looking for credit card processing
