Omni Business Solutions / Fraud and cheating
This is the fourth time I've reported Omni Business Solutions. Incredibly, they have contacted me three times after nearly selling me a contract two years ago. In that incident, I agreed to a contract for mentoring which was woefully inadequate, consisting of courses that had little or no applicability to my efforts as an online marketer and would have been a complete waste of time. In addition, the hours allotted for a one-one mentoring session(s) were completely inadequate as well.
Before I signed the contract they charged my credit card. When I told them the contract was unacceptable, they became extremely verbally abusive. After the verbal abuse, they sent me a very long and essentially demented email begging me to sign it. I refused and demanded they credit my account.
I received to more phone calls after that spaced about 8 to 9 months apart. Each followed my purchase of an ebook written by one of the Internet marketing gurus, Mike Glaspie and Latif Muhammed (Google Snatch). Claiming they represented these individuals -- incidentally the one involving Latif Muhammed was a real joke. When I asked the rep who wrote Google Snatch he didn't know. When I asked how he could be representing Google Snatch when he didn't know who the author was, he tried to tap dance around the question. In the previous incident, involving Mike Glaspie, I asked for an email from Mr. Glaspie confirming that he actually had contracted these people. I received no email, of course.
The latest incident involved another Omni rep again claiming they represented Google Snatch. This time the rep knew Latif's first name. He 'reviewed me for qualification for the program' and I got a call from his Supervisor. This happened long after the two incidents I mentioned above, and I had forgotten Omni's name, though I remembered the company that had created the original problem was in St. George.
When they told me they were Omni Business Solutions, my memory was immediately refreshed. I then told them 'no' and they immediately began the abuse 'Tell me why, is it the money? It makes no sense; You don't have the guts, You don't have the balls' etc. As usual, I couldn't get a word in edgewise so I said goodbye and hung up.
This company cries out for INVESTIGATION. They are acquiring lists from people who purchase books online, and they are using the names of famous Internet 'gurus' (whom they claim have contracted them -- a claim I seriously doubt) to recruit people for what is an inadequate and insubstantial 'mentoring' program.
They need to be investigated for deceptive and fraudulent business practices and put out of business if the charges are verified.
