I just checked the FTC site and found the following:
The link below is for the full reading.. Pay Very special attention to the last paragraph.. I paid them to start 3600 and then 100 per mo.
They violated federal law.. So this automaticlly tells you something about them..
They simply CAN NOT take any money before the work is done. Which they did to us.. This is why the law is here becuase of places like this..
This was signed into LAW by the President in 1996. It's not a new law..
