If you have been a reader of this blog for any time, you know that I have a HUGE PROBLEM with ANYTHING that seems like a scam. I’ve questioned Quicken Loans…Capital One Financial…Astonish Results and others.
Several of the things we’ve looked into and asked for input on still seem scam-like today, while others seem more legitimate after getting comments and feedback from people who support their company or cause.
TEAM CCM may be a scam that I brought on myself.
Sadly to say, over a year ago, I paid to be a part of Consumer Choice Marketing. I was paying to become a broker of natual gas service to business customers in Ohio and Michigan. This seemed like an incredible opportunity for a guy who loves to sell and loves to save people money. I trusted the gentleman who SOLD ME on the service…but today that same guy is no longer with the company.
Anyways, things never really played out like I was sold. While I was selling, we were not able to sell gas against Michigan Gas Utilities in SE Michigan. This was a big problem for me and others.
Well, what do you think? I would love to hear different views. I’m sure there are folks out there who have made millions selling natural gas…but not me. There was never enough consistency in the process, and I was never able to build the sales organization that I needed to gain critical mass. Also, it was very strange to me that the executive who introduced me to the company was simply gone several months after I paid my “utility broker fees.”
Thanks for the input…let’s find out if I was duped!
