My brother talked me into joining ACN over two years ago. Because he was so excited about the opportunity and because I wanted to show my support, I signed up for the phone service and business opportunity. It was the worst financial and business decision I've ever made.
*The phone sucks! You can't talk and hear the other person at the same time. So if you're telling a story or talking and the other person wants to chime in, it's a no go. They just have to wait until you finish and then there is an awkward pause, and then you both start and the phone cuts one of you off which is even more awkward. It's awful. Not to mention we had to call the customer support line dozens of times to get the video to "work". The refresh rate is choppy. The phone is useless. It's been collecting dust in my basement for two years.
*Nobody wants to join! For several months my brother and I hit it hard, talking to everyone, holding living room meetings. ACN made a big deal about Donald Trump showcasing the ACN Digital IRIS 5000 or IRIS 3000 on his show. We had a big The Apprentice party and talked about it on Facebook and Twitter and created our own blog about it. Nothing. Nobody had any interest in the phone or service. After a few weeks, we realized we made a big mistake.
*They won't let you cancel! As soon as we realized this wasn't going to work we tried to cancel. No can do. You're LOCKED into a two-year contract. This means, with interest on my credit card, I've WASTED OVER $3,846!!! And this is at a time I'm trying to pay off my debt. ACN put me back on my debt free plan for years.
*The REALLY won't let you cancel!! So after two long years my brother went to cancel. They told him he couldn't, that had to call in on the EXACT day the bill was due. What?! Isn't that illegal? He warned me about his experience so I let another month go by and called in on the right day and canceled. Hoorah! I felt like I was free of the ACN scam for the first time. Until…I looked at my credit card bill this morning and THEY CHARGED ME AGAIN…AFTER I CANCELED!! HEEELLLLLLPPPPP!! I'm in ACN ***!!
*Now, as a lot is happening in my personal life, I have to fight with them on the phone, do a chargeback, contact the FTC, BBB and Attorneys' General office in my state and ACN's state and fight to get out of their system. ACN is like a big wad of gum in your hair that you can't get out for YEARS!
Please…if you are looking at ACN's phone service or business opportunity, don't walk away…RUN!!!
