Just thought I would let investors know about some of the activities Genesis Intermedia is involved in.

My fiancee bought an "internet package" from Genesis Media Group back in September, 2000. After a hard sales pitch, they have done nothing they said they were going to do. They are using other company's names on their own contracts to deflect any complaints away from them. Even her credit card charge was under another company's name.

After a lot of investigating, they finally admitted the true name of their company. She was told from the very beginning that she would get a contract in the mail to review and if she wasn't satisfied with it, would get a refund of her purchase. She just received a copy of the "supposed" contract in June (9 months later). It, of course, didn't have her name on it, didn't have Genesis' name on it, had the wrong date (September 5, 2001!) and wrong amount of money charged to her credit card. Actually, there were 2 other company's names in the contract. We called them to verify that they had no involvement with Genesis. They denied any affiliation with Genesis and are looking into copyright infringement.

We are still waiting for our supposed refund. They keep telling us lies probably to stall. Becuase of the statute of limitations, we have to pursue legal action within the next month of so, or else we would have no recourse.

If you would like to hear more about this, please email us at kbullick1@home.com. We want to let everyone know what kind of company this is before you invest in them or purchase anything from them.

They can't even stay in the black with these kinds of activities. Imagine what will happen when these fraudulent internet marketing revenues are stopped.

Mike
