Horizon Technologies - Ripped me offI signed up with Horizon Technologies in late Nov. 2008 to be an independent rep for their Millenium Plus GPS units. Initial investment was $2449.00. This bought me a GPS unit of my own, brochures and postcards for mailing to prospective clients, and a website of my own. In 6 days they called with a 'fool-proof' marketing campaign. For $13, 800 they would mail 1000 postcards to prescreened selective fleet businesses (a guaranteed customer base according to their smooth talking sales rep) every month for 12 months. Mailings were to start in January of 2009. I was also charged $19.95 monthly for tracking my own GPS unit (which I never installed) and $25.00 per month for my website. I have been charged for 3 months of these charges and the business shut down on Jan 26, 2009 without any warning to its clients.
I used a credit card to fund this purchase and I intend to go after them for fraud. No mailings were ever done. My website was only up for one month before they shut it down. They had no intention of doing these mailings. They told me they had been in business for 4 years and were a friendly 'family' owned and operated business. I have read that they are trying to start up again under a new name. Please beware of this type of business scheme. if I am able to recover any of this investment I will post the results.
