Points Across America / not a scam =]

1 United States Review updated:

I worked for points across america for about 5 months, it was amazing and all the kids were like brothers and sisters to me. Yes we had quotas in order to go party or do what ever we wanted that night, why should the company support your ### if all your doing is staying up all night partying and not helping thier business any? i hear all these people who used to be here complaining on how we cant leave our rooms, we only get 25$ a night, Blah Blah. Well its ###. get your quota- ITS NOT THAT HARD! You got to that quota because you started getting consistant with doing good and you show'd you could do it. if you dont get your quota get back to the hotel check in go to our little meeting and go the ### to bed and wake up excited for the next day. all it takes is a good attitude, a personality and determination. you have that and you'll get your QUOTA and you'll make more than 25$ a day!!! at least thier payin you every night even when you walk around all day with your finger in your ###. And about this scamming talk, kids who get desprite to get thier quota go to desprite measures. if we dont got a magazine of course if u name one off thier gonna say we have it! they were stupid kids and didnt mean any harm. Thier has been days where ive been one order short on my quota on the day and i bought one myself and sent it to my family back home...and from what i've heard some people say about PAA is that its a scam...so i wasnt sure if the magazines were gonna go to my house but i kept gettin texts from my sister like "are you sending me magazines?". i told her i was only meeting my quota and i would send her and my mom some. i am now home and i went in her room and found like 6 different magazine subscriptions and thier were 2-3 issues that already came from each. Im sorry to those who have gotten into a situation where somewhere along the lines, somthing got messed up with your order, but ive ran across so many people in the 5 months of selling magazines who have opened thier door saying they did this last year and they have so many magazines pileing up from all the ones they bought last year from the kid they supported they dont want any more. I've had people say they do it every year but they dont have the right income this year, ive had two military roomates i ran across that one of the girls purchased 2 subscriptions from me and the other one didnt get paid yet so she BORROWED 110 dollars from her roomate to buy magazines from me. People all around the world want to help us kids in our contest becuase it IS A CONTEST!!! dont let that fool you. thiers points on EVERY magazine. and for those people who have had problems in the past-IM SORRY, i dont understand it sometimes on how it could have happend but thier are some kids out thier who get desprite and pocket your money, or alter your orders acting like we have somthing we dont just to make a sale. but let me ASSURE you, those are the kids who are in the business for the WRONG reasons and they do get fired.I was in one of the meetings where thier were a few problems with how some of the kids there did things and it was brought out in the open, they embarrassed the HELL of of a few kids and fired 2 of them...the kids Know NOT to ### around not to alter orders, not to split orders or dont switch orders with another person. Some of them do it anyways to benifit them selves in some way...and they DO get caught. so its not the COMPANY who ###s you over ...its because sometimes we get ROTTEN kids coming into this contest. WE deff. handle them and the company handles you guys the best they can. But you guys never know what happend in the situation so please stop acting like we're so bad like not one person we sell gets thier magazines. ### happens but i've ran across more people who HAVE, and that do it every YEAR than that havent gotten 'em.

    United States

    This is NOT a SCAM...I use to work for PAA and I have received magazines that I have sent to my family and friends..actually they are asking me to stop sending them magazines. YES it does take a while but it says that on the receipt..I worked for them for almost six mths and the job wasnt for me but you do get your magazines..its funny reading these stories online..Connie

    Hey no im not a little kid. I ordered a mag. from PAA Inc 3 months ago and the guy told me that if i wanted my money back was to send in a paper for a refund. It has been about 3 months and i still havent recieved my money. I disagree with you people who worked for them. this whole thing is just a scam for some stupid little immature people WHO CANT GET A REAL job and just want to scam other poeple out of their money to go to [censored]ing mexico. So you people need to grow up and stop cheating people out of money they really dont have and stop telling them some sob story or trying to get them to feel bad for you.

    A charming boy came to my door and convinced me to buy $55 worth of magazines that were to be given as a gift. I had never recieved the magazines and my check was cashed shortly after I had purchased the magazines from the boy. I am out of $55 and out of a christmas gift.

    You may have been "for real" but PAA Inc, certainly isn't. My husband paid $70 (by check) in August 2009, and still hasn't received the magazine he ordered...

    BTW, the phone number for PAA Inc has been disconnected.

    I am still waiting on my subscriptions from 09.23.2008. I paid with a check for $91.00. I just recently located the receipt and have been trying to reach someone. The phone number is disconnected and all I find are complaints and statements that this is a scam. I will not buy from people that come door to door anymore unless they have the product with them like cookies or snacks for sports teams and such. This was a $91.00 lesson that people are not always who they say...If anyone else in the Mansions at Tech Park in Rensselaer, NY purchased magazine subspriptions from a bubbly young girl on or around 09.23.2008, perhaps we can make a group complaint so something better than just writting on a blog...
