I purchased 5 qts of a cleaning product called Eliminator from a door-to-door salesman on January 7, 2000. The cancellation policy was to return the products within 3 days (excluding Sunday) with your original receipt. My return shipment was postmarked January 10, 2000. It was received by ADP on January 19. I spoke with their secretary on January 20 and was told it would take 6 weeks to process my return and refund my money. On March 9, 2000 I called and spoke with Tony who informed me that he would check with his CPA who issues the refunds and see what the hold up was. He would call me back. I called him on March 10 and he told me his CPA in Louisiana would cut my check that day and send it out. On March 24, 2000 I still had not received my check and called Tony again. He said he would check into it with his CPAs and get back to me. On March 27, 2000 I called and spoke with Tressa who said she would call the CPA and call me back. She actually did call back and said she left a message with the CPA, but that he lives in Louisiana in the "boonies" and only has mail delivery and pickup every other day (yeah, right!) I left messages for Tony and Tress on the 28th. On the 29th of March I spoke with Tony who again said he would check with his CPA, but that when he contacted him 2 or 3 days ago the CPA said he would mail the check. Meanwhile, I'm still waiting for my $84 refund.

American Diversified Products is company that not only defrauds consumers, but mistreats employees.

#2UPDATE EX-employee responds

Tue, February 24, 2004

in July,2000, i was an employee of American Diversified Products. i was on a sales crew of about 20 people, only one other was female. We had to live in hotels, and had inadequate pay, no healthcare, and were forced to try to sell this product in cities where we did not have a valid permit to do so. We had to work (door to dorr) from 8 am until about 8 pm. Our pay was meager. We were given $10 per day. With that $10, we had to eat, buy supplies for work, and other personal items. Being a female(and only 20 at the time) I was forced to endure sexual harassment, and even a sexual assault by a coworker. The only thing that was done was making the person that assaulted me(his name was Ray) my ROOMMATE. When I requested a bus ticket home(I had been told that I could request one at any time,and I would be granted my request)It was refused. We were not allowed any long distance phone calls, thus ensuring that we could not reach family members. I finally scrounged together enough money for a phone card, and had a friend fedex me some money for a bus ticket. The day before i was to go home, I was raped. The company did absolutely NOTHING about the individual. This company still disgusts me, and i hope and pray that someone will shut them down.
