EXCLUSIVE: Burnlounge Not Offering Refunds To Retailers

With all of the FTC charges, turmoil and changes at Burnlouge, we wondered how "reatilers" that had de paid dearly (often $500 and up) for expensive entry into the previous multi-level marketing system would be compensated under the new affiliate system. A Burnlounge spokesperson answered our inquiry:

Burnlounge_logo "All retailers who purchased the Exclusive or VIP product packages retain all of the products and services they received, but the Mogul program and Mogul Team Bonuses have been discontinued.

"All existing paid members in BurnLounge become BurnLounge Basic retailers and receive a subscription to our Business Management Software (BMS). In addition, during this transitionBurnlounge we are waiving all renewal and monthly fees for existing retailers until December 31, 2007."

"Currently, our terms and conditions state that complete refunds are not available after 3 days from the purchase date. In light of this transition, we are reviewing our refund policies but we have not made any changes at this time."

Thanks for the clarity Burnlounge, but it appears that if someone doesn't want to participate in your completely new revenue model, so far they're out of luck.
