I saw a website (www.aviathome.com) which promised people a profitable job working at home doing data entry and printing letters, etc. from their own home computers. It also promised up to $2000 income per month.
Interested, I sent in an application from the website, plus a money order for $180 (required to cover the cost of the software and information package that AVI would send) to AVI.
AVI's website states that the this application / information fee is refundable within 60 days.
After recieving the package and software, I realized that this "at home business" would require a great deal more work and time on my part than implied in the site's advertisement, and I no longer wished to work for AVI.
What AVI does not tell you in the website is that the fee is NOT refndable until you process 50 of their assignments.
I did not begin the work at home business, nor do I want to. I would like to just send everything back, unopened, and request my money back.
Apparantly I can't, according to AVI.
Now I am stuck with a bunch of information and software for starting an at home business which I don't wish to persue anymore. I am also out $180 bucks.
I think the website is misleading and the company should be clearer about the "refundable" deposit and what exactly that entails. They should explain to prospective employees that the refund is not given until you actually begin working for them.
What about people like myself who just wanted to view the information and THEN decide whether or not working for AVI would be a good decision, assuming that if he/she didn't like what he/she saw the money would be refunded? In this case it is not fair for AVI to keep these people's money, especially if the information / software will not be used.
I would love to return the package that was send to me for a full refund of my money. Please help.
