Rip2it.com / purchased websites and no money was generated as they had promised
My son and I purchased some websites at an investment seminar run by a company called Rip2it.com on April 5, 2008. We purchased a package for $10, 000 on our credit cards.
We were supposed to get a total of 170 websites up and running within 6 months. Sean Roach, the owner promised us in person that we would have the first 50 websites up and running on the fourth day after purchase. But there was a clause in the agreement that gave us 3 days to cancel.
I told him that we had no time to work on these websites and he guaranteed us that there would be nothing for us to do, that the websites would generate thoudsands of dollars of monthly advertising income every month and there was nothing that we had to do. So we thought we made a good investment for our future.
By the fourth day we found out that we had a lot of work to do. We tried for two months to get 30 of these websites up and running but we were never successful in achieving any results. We finally realized that this company was a big fraud and cancelled our agreement.
I even had to purchase 30 domain names for an additional $300 adding more insult to injury.
We have been in dispute with our credit card companies since June of this year and they are now telling us that there is nothing further they can do to help us and are putting these charges back on our accounts.
Then in October, my son and I both got billed another $98.50 for membership fees. This was another total fraud after we had cancelled in June, they had a lot of nerve to continue to charge our accounts.
Please let me know how many others have filed a complaint and what you can do to help us eliminate these charges on our credit card so we can finally reestablish our good credit rating.
