RCM Plans Service

An update on RCM plans service. I had ordered 4 sets of plans back in the beginning of November with no luck getting a response to the status of my order. The Better Business Bureau has also had no success in getting a response from RCM Plans Service.
RCM wasnt even on the radar for the BBB but now anyone doing a business search for RCM plans will be informed of this situation.
Maybe that will be the final death nail of RCM plans, hopefully someone reputable will takeover and bring a great service in the past back to life.
The RCM website is still up and running...
probably to snag more suckers before it all collapses.

Don Dewey ran a terrific magazine. After he passed, his family kept collecting subscription renewals even though they had no intention of continuing with the magazine. The fact that this has occured with the plans service really doesn't come as much of a suprise. Sad.

There are several other threads on this. One reports that RCM is alive and well after a major computer crash. If you've ordered and not gotten your order, phone them at the number given.

Same here $22 shanghai. These people have no concern. Someone local to them needs to pay them a visit.

It would be a shame to lose all the resources from RCM plans.

I know it's frustrating to have this happen and I don't justify it, but I think it is in our best interest to try to help them get back on track as they have provided us with this service for so long.

If we lose these plans services, we are stuck in ARF world. How depressing that would be.

How can we help them! As I understand it, it has pretty much been a small one-manned operation that has survived only because of their personal interest in helping modelers. This is not a money making venture.

Well I recieved a reply to my phone call to the credit card people to say they had recovered my money from RCM Plans and the funds were in my account.
It will be interesting to see if others follow and reclaim there money. Yours Paul T
And Brian it was a 100% profit from my order,never recieved a reply to any e mails just took the cash and ran.

As I said above, Someone should pay them a visit. If I win the Powerball tonight, I will fly up there and buy the service from them. They did the same thing when they stopped the magazine. Hundreds of people lost their subscription money, with no restitution.

RCM plans

I placed an order for 4 sets of plans back in Feb 2013. No reply to my two emails. By phone I got a recording that they were behind but catching up. That was a month back. Paid with a credit card so I guess there's nothing to lose trying to reverse the charge.

There are other plan distributors out there. As I understand it Outerzone is one of the better ones.
