MicroNutra.com / Online scam!
I was a affiliate of MicroNutra who paid $149.95 in December 2007 for their turnkey website which has not been working since March 1, 2008. I called several times and was told by a customer service rep that the site was down and that is was being upgraded. That, as I found out on March 11, 2008 was a LIE. By doing some searches on the internet, I found that MicroNutra is under Indictment for Fraudulently Marketing Dietary Supplements.
Persons named in the Indictment are; Charles C. Thao, 40, and his wife, Mai Lor, 23, both of Springfield, along with two businesses that they own and operate in Springfield, Nutrapha Research, LLC, and Bio Nutrasource, LLC, and Shua G. Vang, 40, also of Springfield, and Tony T. Pham, 40, and his business, Techmedica Health, Inc., and Tong B. Vang, 42, all of Grand Rapids, Mich., were charged in a 40-count indictment returned by a federal grand jury in Springfield on Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2008. Here's a link with the details: http://www.usdoj.gov/usao/mow/news2008/thao.ind.htm
Brand names include Diamaxol, Activive, Candidol, Cholestasys, HairMax, Lupazol, Menopol and Provigro. In addition to being out $149.95 for a website which does not work, I was responsible for about generating $800. in sales for which MicroNutra has not paid me one penny. I have called MicroNutra numerous times & sent faxes demanding a refund and to be paid for the sales but I have received no response.
I have filed a complaint at the Internet Crime Center Web Site http://ic3.gov . It appears that I will have to take MicroNutra to small claims court to get a refund for the turnkey website which no longer works and the money they owe me in commissions.
