Beware of B.A.W.D. Inc. in the San Francisco Bay Area, with Richard Greenley or Daphna

Same story as all the rest of the Scentura Creations, but with a new name B.A.W.D. Inc. Go figure they are preying on people that want to get rich and need a job, and of BAWD inc are being vauge and basically a bunch of scammers.

There are so many negative reports about Scentura Creations, World Perfume... now BAWD inc.

even the job ad is stupid "Must be able to work with the opposite sex" (OF COURSE, all jobs you need to) Then they leave a phone number and at the bottom say "No phone calls"

My friend went to the "internview" and got the job on the first day (what a suprise) to be a manager. They give you no company name, no website to visit and no info about the company. Your supposed to have 6 weeks of training starting on the next monday. Again same story as all the rest of the compaints around the US about these companies.

Good luck on the job hunt, remember, if it sounds to good to be true... it is...

#1 General Comment

An Objective Perspective

AUTHOR: PublicRelations - (USA)

Unfortunately, it seems theres a lot of negativity and false information circulating the internet regarding Scentura, and I think its based mostly on peoples misunderstanding of the Scentura Opportunity. I thought Id post something
brief that would help make things clear.

First of all, Scentura Creations is a manufacturer and supplier of rendition fragrances. They distribute their product line to
Independent Wholesale Business owners throughout the U.S. Theyre unique in that they provide merchandise without any capital outlay to these Independent Wholesale Distributors, meaning they dont pay Scentura until after theyve
sold the merchandise. This is key because it removes a huge barrier of entry into business Inventory costs.

Second, the sales model used by most independent businesses that sell Scenturas products is that of Direct Selling. Its a business to business, face-to-face sales strategy that has worked for over 35 years. Its not glamorous, and its probably not for everyone, but it just works.

Last, and most importantly, Scentura doesn't ask you to invest any money, it's not a franchise, it's not a pyramid or
multi-level marketing business, there's nothing to purchase, there are no sign-up fees. The only thing required from you is your time and hard work, and youll get a chance to run your own business. How many companies out there are
willing to offer that?

It probably sounds too good to be true, but it makes sense when you understand Scentura's incentive: It's a Win-Win scenario for everyone. You get a chance to own your own business, and Scentura gains a new customer, which means more volume. If Scentura only dealt with individuals who had hundreds of thousands of dollars to invest, they'd be waiting a long time, especially in this economy. So they're willing to take all the financial risk.

Again, this is not for everyone, but the opportunity is definitely real, and many owners have gone on to make six-figure
incomes running their own businesses that sell Scentura's products.

#3 REBUTTAL Individual responds

owner, whats up big Z's

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

First off, let me introduce myself. My name is Earley Gaynor, I went through training a year and a half ago in middlesex, new jersey. When I first started I answered the ad just like everyone else. But unlike the other people that I started with, I stuck with it and I finished the program. When I started I was in Job Corp, I was broke and I had no plan in life. I went from job to job to job until finally I answered the ad, Donnie did my first interview and he gave me the opportunity of a lifetime. When I started I had to do some sales (just like everyone else) but instead of quitting, I had to work harder. Long story short I finished the program in ten weeks (two weeks shorter than my goal). I now run a location of my own in Lanham, Maryland, which means I am a promotion of Donnie and Holly's. I now do the same job that they do, I signed up to be a manager and that is exactly what I am. I didn't get in this to do sales (which no one does). Donnie told me that I could make 30K my first year in the first interview. But in my business in its first year, I made $82,000. I feel like I scammed Donnie. People who blow out in their first or second week obviously didn't understand the business. They give anyone, no matter what race,color,gender, or age, the same opportunity they gave me. Free merchandise, free training, (the day you have to pay for something should be a red flag for you no matter what business) and they also give you the opportunity to move to any state with a business for free. Like I said I went through training in New Jersey and I got the freedom to move to Maryland. Any person with a brain can look at all these negative letters and see that people run offices all over the country. So ask yourself, how did they get there? They got promoted there obviously. Running your own business isn't going to happen overnight, it takes more time and dedication to be successful in this and in any business. Anyone who says this is a pyramid scam or that you dont get promoted doesn't know what THE
F*** your talking about. Everyone has the exact same equal opportunity. All it takes to complete training is working hard( for yourself), dedication, and a little blind faith, believing that Donnie and Holly will get you open. I am so confident that I am going to leave my phone number (NOT FOR BLOWOUTS) but for people who actually want some advice on how to run a successful business for Scentura. 301 577 6694 or 240-330-7566. I have alot of respect for Donnie and Holly because if I was in the position, I wouldn't even bother running an office I would retire. They are great people and unbelievable promoting owners. I am 21 years old, I am black and I make decent money. Thanks to Larry Hohn for giving me the opportunity. When an opportunity like this comes your way it isn't about what someone else did or does for you but what you do with the opportunity yourself. See you at the top.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

SCAM IN HAMMOND, LA

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

I READ THIS AD IN THE LOCAL PAPER SAYIN THEY WERE LOOKING FOR 18-25 INDIVIDUALS TO MANAGE A NEW OFFICE, NO EXP REQ, FUN AND FAST PACED. SO I HAD RECENTLY GOTTEN LAID OFF SO OF COURSE I NEED A JOB ASAP SO I CALLED AND SPOKE TO SOMEONE NAMED BRITNEY WHO ASK BASIC QUESTIONS LIKE "ARE YOU LOOKING FOR FULL TIME", "DO YOU HAVE RELIABLE TRANSPORTATION" AND SHE IMMEDIATELY SET ME UP WITH AND INTERVIEW. I FELT STRANGE B/C SOON AS I WALKED IN I HEARD LOUD MUSIC AND THE OFFICE STILL HAD THE FOR RENT SIGN ON IT, THERE WAS NO COMPANY NAME OR ANYTHING ON THE FRONT DOOR. SHE INTERVIEWED ME AND THIS OTHER GUY AT THE SAME TIME ASKING BASIC QUESTION LIKE COULD WE HANDLE MANAGING 15-20 PPL. SO SAID I HAD INSTANTLY BEEN SELECTED FOR THE 2ND INTERVIEW SO I WAS VERY EXCITED YET HESITANT B/C I DIDNT GET A CHANCE TO ASK ANY QUESTIONS AND SHE DIDNT GIVE ANY INFORMATION ABOUT THE JOB OR WHAT I'D REALLY BE DOING. ALL SHE SAID WAS TO DRESS PROFESSION, DON'T BE LATE, AND BRING PEN AND PAD TO TAKE GOOD NOTES. SO THE 2ND INTERVIEW WAS A GROUP THING AND EVERYONE WAS LOOKING CRAZY LIKE WHAT THE HELL IS THIS. SO WE LISTENED TO RAP AND OTHER TYPES OF MUSIC UNTIL THE REG MGR CAME IN BUT BEFORE SHE ENTERED BRITNEY CAME IN AND TOLD US WE SHOULD SMILE THE ENTIRE TIME THE REG MGR IS IN FRONT OF US TO MAKE SURE WE GOT SELECTED. SO I GOT SELECTED TO WORK WITH THE COMPANY, I WAS EXCITED YET STILL UNEASY B/C I STILL DIDNT HAVE ANY SOLID INFO ON THE JOB OTHER THAN IT'S NOT A SALES POSITION AND THAT WE WOULD BE PAID CASH DURING TRAINING B/C SOME PPL QUIT DURING THE FIRST WK AND TO AVOID ALOT OF PAPER WORK WE WOULD GET CASH JUST SO IT WOULD BE EASIER FOR THEM. WHICH ALSO IS STRANGE B/C I'D NEVER HEARD THAT BEFORE SO AT THIS POINT I'M REALLY CONCERNED ABOUT THIS SO CALLED MGR POSITION. SO TODAY WAS THE FIRST DAY OF ORIENTATION/FFAR WHERE WE HAVE TO SELL TO FRIENDS AND FAMILY AND SHE INSTRUCTED US TO DO WHATEVER WE HAD TO DO TO SELL THE PERFUME. SHE, ROSIE THE REG MGR GAVE AN EXAMPLE HOW IS BLACKMAILED HER FRIEND INTO BUYING A FEW BOTTLES OF THE PERFUME FOR HER AND I FOUND THAT REALLY STRANGE B/C MOST COMPANIES PRIDE THEMSELVES ON THEIR HONESTY AND INTEGRITY WHICH OBVIOUSLY ISNT IMPORTANT TO ROSIE AND HER FOLLOWERS. I ALSO WAS ALARMED WHEN SHE GAVE US A LITTLE COMPANY HISTORY AND SHE SAID THE FOUNDERS NAME IS LARRY, BUT SHE NEVER SAID ANYONES LAST NAME, NOT EVEN HERS. I REFUSE TO RETURN FOR THIS BULLSHIT TOMORROW B/C I HAVE BILLS TO PAY AND I HAVE NO TIME FOR BULLSHIT SCHEMES TO FATTEN SOMEONE ELSE'S POCKETS. SO HOPEFULLY SOMEONE WILL READ THIS AND THINK ABOUT IF IT'S REALLY TRUE. AFTER READING OTHERS POST AND COMPARING THEM TO MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE I SEE THAT IT IS THE SAME THING, THE COMPANY IS GOING BY MBS MANAGEMENT IN LOUISIANA. SHE ALSO TOLD US WE WOULD HAVE TO EXERCISE BLIND FAITH, ASK NO QUESTIONS, DO THINGS HER WAY AND REMEMBER THE PRINCIPLES LEARNED IN THE MOVIE KARATE KID, BULLSHIT RIGHT, I KNOW AND I WILL NOT RETURN AND BE SOLD MORE DREAMS ON HOW I CAN MAKE UP TO 30K YEARLY AND VACATION WHEN I WANT
