I am very certain that I am not the first to report these guys but just so everyone knows they are in NJ. I encountered them at ACME NISSAN in Monmouth Junction, NJ but I also know that they are also working out of AUTOLAND CHRYSLER JEEP AND DODGE SPRINGFIELD, NJ. Luckily I didn't fall victim to them (because I researched prior) but I do not want anyone else falling for their tricks. Same usual stuff; entry level sales, make you feel like they are going to hire you, now are claiming that if that dealership doesn't hire you one of their 50 other dealerships will, etc. Real scum bags.

Their trainer currently is MICHAEL DEFILIPPIS from West Long Branch, NJ and his accomplice "Kyle" (the guy who schedules the interviews) uses the email address: kyle29001@verizon.net

Sample of the email:
Dear (my name)
Congratulations on taking your first step to becoming a professional automobile salesperson!  Acme Nissan is experiencing major increases in sales and are in immediate need of committed, career-minded people like you to represent our fine line of vehicles.What do you need to do?  Reply to this email and schedule your interview for Acme Nissan, 2050 US-130, Monmouth Junction, NJ 08852.

Apparently no one is ALLOWED to view the email unless you are scammed.

When I didn't respond to the second dealership (I applied to both but was contacted by ACME first) I got this second email:

Dear (my name),
Although we are interested in meeting with you, you have not yet scheduled an interview; however, IT IS NOT TOO LATE!! You do NOT need experience - we will train you the RIGHT way!!! Email me back with your preferred day and time AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Remember, interviews will be held ONLY on Monday and Tuesday, between 9:30 AM and 6:00 PM.You will receive an email confirmation from me, and please take a copy of your resume with you if can (not mandatory). Thank you once again for your resume and your anticipated prompt reply. Please let me hear back from you soon! 

IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REQUESTED AN INTERVIEW, IT HAS NOT YET BEEN POSTED. PLEASE DISREGARD THIS MESSAGE AND ACCEPT MY APOLOGY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.Sincerely,KyleNotice of Confidentiality: This electronic message and its attachments (if any) are intended solely for the use of the addressee hereof.

Its very strange that you can only use email correspondence for scheduling interviews, huh? He is also claiming to be from "the team" which is ironic because they are not with the dealership.

So in conclusion: AUTOMAX will scam you for 299.99 in NJ for non-paid nor job guaranteed training
MICHAEL DEFILIPPIS is the trainer in NJ and Kyle at kyle29001@verizon.net will send you these scam emails.

Even scarier note: Someone hacked into my gmail this morning after I refused to go to their training the day prior. May just be a coincidence, but just saying.
