Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"This man took me for $3500
with his phoney business. He has convinced himself that he is some kind of business coach. He is a con artist with false promises. Tells people they can make thousands a day by mailing post cards. What he doesn't tell you until he cons you out of your money is that you have to do the same thing. Send out list cards then con those who respond out of their money!"

Respondent's Counteroffer Hide
The claimant's settlement terms were rejected with the following explanation:
  • I disagree with the explanation / grounds provided

    "Mark Ward purchased consulting services from my company. Mark Ward received the services he paid for, and is now trying to threaten me by making false claims and posts, so he can receive my services for free. Mark Ward threatened to post false information over the Internet, take me to court, also threatened to file a lawsuit through his attorney. I asked Mark to have his attorney contact me, but no contact at all. I have attached screen shots of conversations from email communication with Mark, where emails show he is an unstable person. Mark admits to be stressed out and apologizes multiple times, about his harshness, and his behavior. Mark was provided a refund request form, as I provide everyone a 30 day money back guarantee, where I guarantee that the marketing that I teach, works to get a 4% or higher response rate. Mark did not fill out the refund request form, because he knows that he does not qualify for the refund per our agreement. Mark also signed an agreement, stating that he understands what he paid for, and that he would take personal responsibility. I request that this claim be closed, as Mark shows that he is not stable, and has apologized multiple times, via emails sent to me. "

This claim will remain posted until resolved.
