MY NIECE KNOWS I AM LIVING ONLY ON SOCIAL SECURITY AND I AM LOOKING FOR A JOB BUT HAVE NOT FOUND ONE AS OF YET. FOCUSLC.COM HACKED INTO MY NIECES EMAIL AND MADE IT LOOK LIKE SHE WAS SENDING ME THESE MESSAGES. I WAS STUPID AND DESPERATE ENOUGH TO FALL FOR THIS SCAM AND SIGNED UP WITH THEM TO BUILD A WEBSITE BUSINESS. WHEN I TALKED TO MY NIECE SHE SAID SHE DO NOT SEND THOSE EMAILS THAT THESE PEOPLE HAD HACKED INTO HER EMAIL AND SENT THIS TO A LOT OF HER FRIENDS. UNFORTUNATELY I WAS THE ONE TO FALL FOR IT. WHEN I ASKED FOCUSLC.COM ABOUT THIS TYSON TOLD ME THAT I SIGNED THE CONTRACT AND NEXT TIME MAKE SURE THE EMAILS CAME FROM MY NIECE. I THINK THAT HACKING INTO PEOPLES EMAILS IS ILLEGAL - SO I HOPE THEY WILL HAVE TO GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK. ALSO TYSON TOLD ME THAT THEY SOURCE OUT THEIR MARKETING SO THEY ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR WHAT THEIR SUBCONTRACTOR DOES.

  • TO ANONYMOUS FOCUSLC.COM $15963 FALSE ADVERTISING COMPLAINT. YOU DO NOT SAY HOW YOU PAID. I AM JUST ANOTHER CONSUMER BUT MY EXPERIENCE HAS BEEN ON VARIOUS THINGS THAT MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY WILL OFTEN REMOVE THE CHARGE IF I DISPUTE IT FOR A FAIRLY GOOD REASON. THE SOONER YOU DISPUTE THE BETTER. IF THEY ADMITTED HACKING YOU HAVE ESPECIALLY GOOD GROUNDS. EVEN IT THEY DO NOT ADMIT IT BUT YOU SAY YOU BELIEVE THAT IS HOW IT MUST HAVE HAPPENED. GOOD LUCK.

  • They charged on2 of my credit cards, 1 reversed the charges back to the merchant and the other, it was disputed 6 times and every time they favored the merchant and refused to credit my card Crystal Consulting was who charged my card but Focuslc was the co. suppoedly working with me. I filed with the FTC, the Cunsumer Financial Protection Bureau, Consumer Protection, and a few others but have not gotten any answers or refund for hte $9,000.32 remaining. It has now gone back on my card as my responsibility to pay but I refuse to pay for money the bank handed out to a scammer. I even contacted my bank and told them I had just been scammed prior to the charges posting yet they would not decline the charged per my request and posted them the next day and said I could dispute them. Sure thing Fopcus only solution by Jeremy Turner was to rejoin the company, no refund was even a possibility. I am diligently going to continue writting agency's until I find someone who will actually listen to my claim, read what I have to say and investigate this scamming, deceptive company and shut them down, only after we all get refunded. I do this not just for me but all who have been scammed by this company. I aim to succeed.

  • My wife and I have too been scammed by these guys sweet talking us for just over $5500. We did get the LLC for NC state and although I think the initial amount of $1500 was way too much I did pay and not really complaining about that. I am however complaining about Catalyst Coaching and Focuslc as I have just received an email stating that my subscription failed to go though for what I thought was completely covered when I paid the initial $5500 or so. Luckily the credit card they had on file had been compromised a month back and so they have no way of charging anything additional. I have called their billing department, spoke with a Tiffany and asked if I could have this so called contract I signed stating how much I agreed to and for how long. She has since avoided most of my calls and emails and today I just received a call back. The first go around she emailed me but forgot to send the attachment. Second round I got the same email but with an attachment with a generic "Terms of Service Agreement" dated 2009. I called back and asked her where on this is my name and where does it say how much. She went around in circles reading what is said on the terms of service but I still do not have anything in writing saying I agreed to anything monthly which I would not have willingly signed for after paying out over $5500. I am looking to sue these guys for every penny but think it would be great if we can all get together and do this. I think if more people bring up a lawsuit, they will be forced to settle probably out of court. Please let me know if anyone is having any thoughts of any lawsuits.
