This business advertises on Craigsllist for job opportunity, but when you answer the ad, Mike Caldwell asked for $399.00 to buy a lead generation device to perform a job he is asking you to work for his bogus company and when I answered the ad it was sales call for me to buy his product and now this guy is e-mailing and writing me the most vile e-mails I have ever read in my life!!!!!! I hope Craigslist reads this information and removes any ad posted by this so called business!

#2 Consumer Comment

Mike Caldwell is an uneducated con artist

AUTHOR: Ray - ()

Mike Caldwell also took me to the cleaners as well.  Don't do business with this con man.  He will sound convincing but not deliver as promised.  I paid him $397 and worked my butt off with him program even leaving his service running non stop instead of the 9-5 and only got calls from other people interested in his service.  I approached him with all the evidence that he didn't deliver what he promised in writing requesting a refund and of course he basically told me to take a hike.  

I recently received an email offering me a refund and assumed he finally got sued enough and was ordered to pay us all back but never saw the refund that was promised.  Mike Caldwell is worse than garbage on the street.  He will steal from you then offer you a refund for whatever reason then dissappear again.

I believe in a higher power so he will definitely get his just desserts and I will admit, I'll probably smile at least for a moment.

Trust me anyone that reads this when I say....Do Not Do Business with Mike Caldwell or Paragon Leads or Lead Net Pro.  You'd be better to just donate your money to a good charity or organization.

He lies and tells people no one will believe them

AUTHOR: Austin Olk - (United States of America)

Unfotuntely then he writes false comments claiming we are writing false comments. I only speak truth.  This man needs to be taken out. He makes a weak attempt to manipulate people into giving him close to 400$. Then when you ask a question he makes disrespectful racist comments.

Then when you report him he calls you a liar for trying to alert others to his scam. (unfortunately for him, at this point he has posted false comments which hurt our characters, you can sue him at this point because when looking for a job one is likely to find reports of me being a liar from this man. Which I am not.  

His posts calling us liars are him claiming we are what he is.  We are not.  Do not do business with this man.  He will burn in hell.  No reason for him to drag you down.  Contact an attorney if he posts lies about you telling the truth. Here in this photo is my email he sent saying how it doesnt matter if I report him, because nobody will listen.

Austin last name Olk created false emails.

AUTHOR: PGLeads - (United States of America)

Just wanted to wait and see how much would be said before I posted another response.

First off,  The emails in the images are totally fake.  He manufactured them to say what he wanted some how.  Here's the thing...I AM NOT JEWISH, LOL.  I don't know why he chose to single out Jewish people and imply that they are all racist people that can't wait to call someone a Nazi, but I highly disagree and I'm appalled by the implication.

Secondly,  My company does not require $399 to become an employee.  Paragon Lead Solutions is a lead generation company i.e. "Lead Solutions."  We work with hundreds of independent contractors that hire individuals to take calls for them in their respective businesses and pay based on commission.  There is another option to join the software sales portion of the opportunity with as independent sales rep.  That option does require some start up costs be paid. 

Some people don't qualify for either.  Here's what I mean by qualify...If you have to be convinced or "sold" on joining as a telesales rep and helping the independent reps, or if you have to be convinced or "sold" on becoming an independent sales reps within the software company, this isn't for you.  We're looking for leaders that will see a good opportunity and blitz into action.  The most important thing in business is avoiding as many headaches as possible.  A smart businessman will distance himself from a person as soon as he sees that person will be more of a headache than a success story. 

Having said that...Once again, anyone that will form an opinion of our business based on the false statement from someone that didn't qualify, didn't pay anything, called me moron and idiot while saying I called him names, not to
mention assumed I was Jewish and created false statements based on that assumption, and was rejected, it's probably better that you not join anyway.

Comedy? I dont think so. I have the same story

AUTHOR: Austin Olk - (United States of America)

This company continues to harass people in an attempt to scam.  I asked one ? as to why it would cost to work for them and he goes on to call me gay, sad, broke, pathetic, jew killing nazi, and he goes on to say that he feels sorry for me because "i cant afford his program"  even though I can and am just intelligent enough to see a scam up front.  then he goes on to say that he wants to "f**k my mother" and threatens to have charges placed upon me, the consumer, for harassing him.

This complaint is comedy

AUTHOR: PGLeads - (United States of America)

Once again, your claims are absolutely unsubstantiated and purely false. 

I'm sorry that you don't qualify for the sales position.  None of our independent sales reps wanted to work with you.  They looked you up on the complaint board and saw your harassing tactics. 

I'm sorry you don't qualify or have the monies to join as an independent rep.  You need to gain more skills.  I'm sorry that's just the truth.  Taking to the internet and slandering another employer and sending harassing emails won't fix the problem.  In fact, sooner or later, the Minnesota Police Department will pay you a visit.  The other employer you were harassing filed charges against you.  You can continue to post anything you want about our company on any site you choose, we're still going to conduct business and we have a long list of satisfied customers.  We've been in business for almost two years, and you are the first person to post anything on a complaint board.  Your report isn't even about being ripped off, it's about getting your feelings hurt.  Don't take it personal, there are other opportunities out there.  Anyone that reads your complaint and our response will be intelligent enough to see that you're upset because you don't qualify.  Sorry again, and good luck in your future endeavors.

Your business is bogus!

AUTHOR: Deartra - (U.S.A.)

You are not professional and your business ad is on Craigslist is listed every day looking for decent people like my self needing suitable employment.  Your business is asking for money upfront to to buy your product to produce sales for you, plain and simple!  And Craigslist prohibibits that kind of employment on its hiring site.  You are unprofessional to say the list and have no business advertising on Craigslist what so ever!   Your sales must be a couple to none at this point!  Be honest about what you are posting! You are child minded sending e-mails with insults to people who don't want to be scammed by you!  You need checkup from the neck up for real!

This complaint is comedy

AUTHOR: PGLeads - (United States of America)

First and foremost, this complaint is absolutely false.  The poster's name is Deartra ****.  She has reports of employer harassment on rip off report: (((links redacted)))

She has a reputation for harassing employers because she's not qualified enough for the job. 

My company does not require $399 to become an employee.  First of all, Paragon Lead Solutions is a lead generation company i.e. "Lead Solutions."  We work with hundreds of independent contractors that hire individuals to take calls for them in their respective businesses and pay based on commission.  There is another option to join the company they're working with as independent sales rep.  That option does require some operational costs be paid. 

Deartra **** was not a fit for either of these options and instead of backing out gracefully, she became upset.   Her report is bogus.  Click the links above to hear other employer complaints. Thanks
