Hey everybody, Has anyone had any experience with Grant Publications out of Oswego, Illinois? I just received their direct mail piece today. From what I can gather, Darryl Clarke has a business where he's looking for people to simply mail a letter to certain types of businesses in their local area, or I guess in any area one chooses. The letter directs the prospective business owner to go to a website and put in their contact info. Darryl Clarke then takes over and signs the business up to some type of promotion I suppose, as it's not really clear what Mr. Clarke actually does. Then you get 50% of what Mr. Clarke makes from the deal. My initial reaction to this offer is it smells like a scam. The first problem I see, is if all you have to do is mail a letter to a business owner, then why doesn't Mr. Clarke just do it himself and save the commission he would have paid the distributor? Grant Publications skates around this issue by giving the excuse we've all heard before, in that he would have to expand to other cities, hire extra employees, etc., etc. That arguement doesn't really hold any water, as he wouldn't have to expand his business outside his area, he would just have to do a mass mailing campaign. Another problem I see is since he actually is responsible for signing up the business, how do you know he really is paying all the commissions you're earned. Of course you could always contact the businesses you've mailed to in a couple of weeks to see if they signed up. I was curious about this complany anyway, so I went to the BBB website and saw the report on them. I was actually surprised as the report said in the last 36 months there have been 5 complaints filed, and they all were responded to by the company. I thought for sure the report was going to have tons of complaints that were ignored by the company, as that is what scams artists do. So is this company actually for real? If anybody has dealt with them, please share your experience.
