Bank Card Empire / Scam and cheating
I received a phone call from Bank Card Empire shortly after Thanksgiving. They stated that i could make money working from home by helping new merchants on-line to Master-Visa Cards accounts. They told me they were sub-contracted out by Master and Visa Card to supply merchant accounts to vendors.
They stated that their sales people do all the work, and supply all the customers to me. I asked why they would need me. They told me that even Master and Visa cannot do it by themselves.
I would be given a free web site. I asked why I would need a Web site. They stated that it was just to let the vendors know a little about me, and all I would have to do is help them set up their merchant accounts. They requested $271.00 for the training they would give me. I told them I could not afford that money. They said that they could lower it to $121.00.
Stupid me agreed and gave them my electric bills' money. Per them all of this income would happen fast. My son was concerned. Boy was he right. They wanted a W9 form filled out and sent to them. I called and spoke to customer service and told them I wanted this in my son's name. I was on disability. I faxed the W-9 on Dec.11, 2008 @ [protected] our acct# WF2718.
Few days later a Salesman named Johnny James called me. I asked if he was my tutor, and he said that I would get dvds in the mail. He stated that I would be marketing and how much money could I put up. I was floored by this news. I told him I had no money, and that I put up my electric bill money. He said some people only put up 5 to 10 thousand dollars. Or at least a thousand. When i told him what I was told about my end of this home working project he said they were wrong to say that. He said 'With Sales comes marketing'. I will try to get your $121.00 and $19.95 back for you.
To date I have heard nothing. I have called and cannot reach them. All I want is my electric money back.
