I was contacted by Mark K*** in June of 2016 by email. The email had to do with investing in a website that Mark would set up and all I had to do was hand over the money and he and his company took care of selling products via the website. I told him I didn’t believe him and that I would need to talk to someone who has been investing with him. He had a lady named Rebecca call me and gave me this big story about how she has been getting a check every month for a year between $8,000 and $10,000 every month. She sounded convincing. She also told me she had invested $40,000. So when Mark told me I could make $10,000 per month with an investment of $30,000 I figured it was an honest deal. After Mark received the $30,000 he then told me he had sold a domain name for me and he would need another $6,000 to cover the 20% broker fee. He was selling the domain name for $30,000. I asked him who was getting the money for the sale of the domain name and he told me I would be the recipient. Well he had told me he was selling the domain name on 10/21/2016 and then he would send me the $30,000. It is now 10/25/2016 and I can’t get either Mark or his office to answer their phones!!! Mark told me his company had an A+ rating with the ScamPulse.com so I don’t know why I am being treated this way. I am also out $36,000. I don’t appreciate being scammed because I am a truck driver who has been working hard for the past 25 years and I was hoping to retire in a few years.

Contacted via phone to become Amazon Affiliate for a small fee of $275 to JB.Comm to make money from home. Contacted again to let Networx Online Solutions LLC build, market, press release and handle the business for $10000, all I was supposed to do was converse once a month with them about business. 100% money back guarantee if no profit in 90 days, not one penny earned. The website was built a.info, then2 to 3 weeks later received another call saying there were people wanting to buy domain name but they wanted to buy the .com. They wanted an additional $12000 to build a .com to sell, but settled for $4544 to get the rest upon the sale of the .com. The offers and there were supposedly 4 offers ranging between $70000 and $125000. Two days later got a text from networx online solutions saying, sorry the big one got away, we will get them next time. I complained to their customer service and they stopped answering my calls. The only time I heard from them again was to be chastised for talking to lawyers, friends about something I don’t know nothing about but lost $14,819 over. Got into heated call, with the director, who said he would let customer service deal with me tomorrow. I never heard from these scammers again. The address they list is a UPS store and when asked for their real address after all was lost, they said were not allowed to give out their physical location. Below is the start of what ended up to be a costly mistake and I have contracts for the $10000 and the $4544, stating money back 100% if no profit in 90 days. It is a lie , it is a scam.

So the man called me and said I applied for more information on working from home. As long as I had access to a computer and a smart phone. He then put me through to a short voice message and asked me to take notes. (I went along with this just to see what he wanted from me) He then takes me to the website i listed above and i told him that I did not trust people. He wouldn’t let me off the phone. He said (with attitude) what more is there to explain? I looked the website up on BBB.org and it was someone scamming yet again. He said that it was going to be my one time installment for 1 Amazon account for 200$ (selling their products) using my own website that they would put together for me(all using the website youre supposedly paying them to create for you.) or 1 Amazon and 2 others i could choose from for 300$ OR 6 total stores i could choose to sell their products for 400$…Then he says well i can give you the 6 stores and your website for 200$. No. I hung up. Little did he know, i went to BBB.org and looked that company up and it was fraud.
