Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Please be patient as I may need to research for you, and it also takes time to compose and type a reply.

We've received many questions here about the Secret Society/Neothink:

You should be very wary of any so-called secret society that tries to flatter you to pay for membership into a so-called elite group which, as it turns out, is just a way to sucker you into spending more money. Beware of any unsolicited offer that seems too good to be true, the specifics of which you can't even learn about until you give up some money and personal identity information.

You can easily find all sorts of fraud and ripoff reports about the Neothink Society.

How secret can it be when it makes unsolicited calls and mailings by the thousands? Just secret enough, it would appear, that you probably won't be able to get your money back.

You may want to report them to your State Attorney General's Office and to the Federal Trade Commission at www.FTC.gov if you are unsuccessful in getting them to refund you.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
