I’ve spoken with a lot of people over the years who found us by searching for M.O.R.E. Inc. because of a direct mailing they did. After several hours of research and speaking with people who tried some of their opportunities, all I can say is HOLY CRAP! I’ve never seen a BBB report this bad, in fact I’ve never seen them put so much commentary in any report.
What they do in a nutshell is offer several different types of business opportunities with cost in the $2,000 to $5,000+ range. They do something which legally cannot be done, and that is they guarantee success (and that you don’t have to know anything or do any work). This is like your stock broker guaranteeing that a stock you buy will go up, it can’t be done. A business is a risk and you don’t know if you’ll succeed or fail, and they don’t know either.
They also make you sign a waiver so you can’t get a refund after 30 days (which actually means nothing, you can still do a chargeback on your credit card if you used one, up to the time limit set by your issuing bank). So you sign up for one of their opportunities and then pay them to advertise by post cards or Internet ads and if you haven’t spotted it yet, that’s a huge conflict of interest. They make money based on what you spend on advertising from that point onwards. They don’t share in profits or have any other motivation than to keep you spending.
They have products like “20-MILLION-IN-20-MONTHS” where you then pay them to advertise your 50 cookie cutter web sites (which they claim is worth over $32,000). Also they have a $997 “Ruthless Marketing Attack” where they “guarantee” you’ll make $100,000 in a year or they’ll send you a check for $1,500. Please… the sales copy for that one just makes me ill.
Don’t ask questions
Several I spoke to pointed out one odd thing, and that there’s no reporting on income, they just send you a check (if you make anything) and they don’t account for traffic or even tell you who bought what. The most I’ve heard of anyone making from the $5,000 post card mailing campaign was twelve dollar after a year.
The MORE Inc. BBB Report
Some info from the M.O.R.E. Inc.Â BBB report, which is the worst one I’ve ever seen. Usually the BBB doesn’t put comments into a file, they just keep to statistics. The place has an “F” rating and 78+ complaints on file. Here’s some of the best tidbits from it:
“The company has failed to substantiate advertising claims when requested by the BBB on December 21, 2007 and February 7, 2009.
The business claims the following through mailings and faxes: Average customers have earned between $20,000 and $100,000 per month $10,000 can be earned in the first week prior to “know(ing) anything; and the referenced bonus gifts are worth $97,760.
The business has also sent out mail and fax communications stating that their firm is having “big problems” and asking the recipient to assume an equity position in their firm. The BBB requested that the business clarify the nature of the problem and they failed to do so.
The BBB has received a pattern of complaints from consumers that have stated their website set up by the company did not generate traffic, therefore they did not receive any income from the website.”
This just takes my breath away. I think M.O.R.E. Inc. is a place that’s great at making money for themselves off business opportunity seekers, but they suck at making it for anyone else.
