    your $80 dollars just went down the toilet. but if you have 10 hours a day to make 3 bracelets well then go ahead.

    it is time consuming. but you don't get back your $80 .my friend said that you have to purchase the items which cost lots of bucks.

    Mate Jewellery is a SCAM. I checked the Ontario BBB and they have lots of complaints. They are not recommended by the BBB. It also looks like they are less than a year old company although their brochure says they exist since 1983. The web site whois shows that they registered by proxy so their personal info is hidden. Also domain name is only 7 months old. All the basic signs are there for them to be a scam. Try to make a stop payment on check if you sent one. Ask credit card company to reverse charge if you paid by credit card.

    Fight for your money back. Next time check them out first as I did. advertising removed has good info on how to spot a scam and how the check out a company before sending them your hard earned money. Never pay someone that says they will pay you for your work later. Mate Jewellery is a SCAM. I checked the Ontario BBB and they have lots of complaints. They are not recommended by the BBB.

    After researching many so called "home based business opportunities", I found a company that IS NOT MLM, and actually offer a turnkey business solutions with amazing on-line educational products, world-class training held via conference calls daily and a very lucrative compensation plan! The community of online entrepreneurs in which we collaborate with on a daily basis is absolutely some of the most compassionate, caring people I have ever come into contact with personally or professionally.

    This business has attracted factory workers, corporate employees, small business owners, Stay-at-Home moms and even CEO's such as myself from other companies. I have found the integrity of this organization to be top notch.

    In fact, I decided to resign my position as a college administrator and come on board full-time as a distributor for this 16-year-old publishing company. I did this because I see the potential with this organization. Forbes magazine wrote a cover article approximately 5 years ago, saying their industry would possibly be the largest EVER by 2010! The company has a solid 35 business plan in place, with a determined effort to make our community of online entrepreneurs, the LARGEST DIRECT MARKETING COMPANY in the world by the end of this decade.

    It is very important however, as with any home based business to find THE RIGHT MENTOR! Someone who has a vested interest, the right morals and the same or even more commitment to YOUR success, as they do their own!!

    The man who mentored me in this business, took this same opportunity that everyone has access to and has created a nice $100K PER MONTH business for himself. He is the top earner in the world with this business. He is helping to create more millionaires than anyone I know. I learned from the BEST and I am teaching others to achieve similar success.

    I have replaced a nice salary within my first 3 months in this business and I am on my way to true financial FREEDOM. My personal plan (which is tailored to you according to how much time you have to spend per day building your business) is to retire with this amazing business within 5 years. The powerful compensation plan with all of it's residual income and repeat business should allow me to have a solid $45K-$50K per month residual income by that time.

    For more information on this amazing home-based opportunity contact me for a straightforward conversation with NO PRESSURE or HYPE and honest answers to your questions.

    Visit my website at for pictures and bio of me and my family, plus much more information about this home based Internet business opportunity, so you can better understand who I am. It is important to know the person you are talking to, when looking at a business opportunity.

    If you like to have fun, call your own shots, report to no one but yourself, work as much or as little as you want each day and earn a LOT OF MONEY, and only cost $99 to join, then you owe it to you and yourself to get all the facts about this business. I invite you to come do just that.....then you can be the judge!!

    May your day be blessed and prosperous,

    Re: Mate Jewellery

    Ugh!! I didn't get taken for the 79.70 from Mate Jewellery but I just about did......sheesh. I googled mate jewellery to look to see where the jewellery was being sold etc and found this website. Soooooo glad I did!! However get taken for 34.95 .........at least it is starting to look that way. My husband and I bought a "directory" from The Canadian Homeworker Review and Mate Jewellery was listed in it. I'm just now researching other companies listed in this directory and I have the feeling they are all the same....scam after scam.......grrrrrrrrr. I just wanted a way to make some extra money while being a stay at home mom......just doesn't seem possible in this day and age.

    I know better.....if it sounds too good to be true it probably is......

    I'm off to search this site for my "directory".......

    Sounds like you are better off making your own jewelry like I did and trying to sell it. It'd probably be a lot more fun because you can make your own styles, and cheaper than putting out a ridiculous amount of money for something that could probably be made for a whole lot less.

    Why should you look there? Because it's not a get rich scam.
    It's my store! I got it up (almost gotta add a few items and spell check LOL) I got domain hosting and email accounts. I sent out my application for sales tax. I'm so excited. Also check out my blog at myspace page

    Re: Mate Jewellery

    I think Mate Jewellery is the same as Bela and they have had some other names in the past. When I first signed up for one of them, I completed the bracelets as soon as I could (it took me FOREVER) but I did get a cheque in the mail which I deposited quickly (it did not bounce). So of course I ran out and got some more beads...even though it took me a long time to finish the first set. By the time I had completed the second and sent them in, the package had been returned to me because the company went out of business. Please, please do not sign up for Mate Jewellery. I don't want to see anyone else get scammed by this company. You are better off creating your own jewellery and selling it on Ebay.

    Am I ever glad I saw this Thread about Mate Jewellery!!!
    Just received a letter from them today telling me I could receive a $570.00 cheque every week to make beaded bracelets at a one time cost of $79.90 for the kit.
    All the "junk info" I received from them is now in the garbage. I am so glad I saw this posting!!!!!

    well I got suckered in and I sent the money. I just called my bank and they said because it was posted I can't get it back and that was on credit card. So nothing much I can do. Sucks. And yes it was with Mate Jewellery as well. Bastards. If I get the bracelets I'm just going keep them. Why send them back done if I'm not going to get paid.
