Found a Report on here...Barbara Seif She is a thief highland lakes new jersey

She came into my office to seek my particapation in  a Womens Empowerment Seminar Program. I gave her a fee of $350 and she never scheduled any seminars, always had excuses and then bounced my refund check twice.

 

MY STORY IS THE SAME!  THIS WOMAN IS A SCAM ARTIST!  BACK IN SEPTEMBER 2013... THE 26TH TO BE EXACT I MET WITH BARBARA TO DISCUSS BECOMING A VENDOR AT HER EXPOS.  I WAS INTERESTED IN EXPOS AS I WORK WITH DIRECT SALES.  SHE CLAIMED THAT FOR 300 I WOULD BE GETTING THE DEAL OF A LIFETIME.  IT WAS A DEAL THAT I JUST HAPPENED TO CALL AT THE RIGHT TIME BECAUSE IT WAS PASSED ALONG BY HER FRIEND WITH CANCER.  AND LUCKY ME I WOULD BE TAKING HER SPOT.  I HAD ONE (one!) DAY TO PAY BARBARA SEIF IF I WANTED THIS AMAZING OPPORTUNITY.

I DID IT!  I SIGNED A CONTRACT AND PAID BARBARA $300 WHICH WAS IMMEDIATELY CASHED!!!!

THE CONTRACT STATED MY FIRST EXPO WOULD BE 12/14-12-15/13!  SHE CANCELLED. [continued below]....

.......WITHOUT A LEGAL EXCUSE!  BREACHED!  FROM THERE BARBARA HAS HAD NOTHING BUT EXCUSES!  EVERY EXPO PLANNED WAS CANCELLED!  WHEN APPROACHED SHE ALWAYS HAD EXCUSE OF HEALTH OR FAMILY ISSUES!  ALWAYS!  AND THIS WOMEN CLAIMS TO BE A HEALTH COACH!

FINALLY 5 MONTHS LATER I REFUSED TO DOING BUSINESS WITH THIS FUED AND REQUESTED MY MONEY BACK...REQUEST HAD TO TURN INTO DEMANDS.  I WAS GIVING ONE DAY TO PAY HER AND SHE TOOK A WEEK TO PAY ME AND THEN I RECEIVED A POST DATED CHECK WHICH BOUNCED!   WHEN WE SPOKE SHE IN THESE WORDS SAID "I SWEAR ON MY MOTHER'S GRAVE IN GOOD FAITH YOU WILL GET HALF OF YOUR MONEY BY A WEEK FROM FRIDAY!" FIRST OF ALL RED FLAG TO BUSINESS PERSON WHO SPEAKS LIKE THAT REGARDING BUSINESS, SECOND RED FLAG A NOT SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS WILL NOT HAVE THE FUNDS TO PAY YOU AND THIRDS RED FLAG...EXCUSES EXCUSES EXCUSES! 

BARBARA NOW CLAIMS TO CONTACT HER LAWYER ON ME!  GO RIGHT AHEAD!  I HAVE TRAILS OF EMAILS, SIMALIAR WEB STORIES AND A BREACHED CONTRACT BEHIND ME....WHAT DOES SHE HAVE!?  EXCUSES! 

I WILL HAPPILY PAY MY ATTORNEY THE $300 I WILL BE REFUNDED AND PUT THIS SCAM ARTIST ON THE MAP!

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Money was returned in full

AUTHOR: B seif - ()

These complaints were  disgusting. My programs ran.  All money was returned. I'm not a thief but a professional who was injured and life timed my members at low rates to say thank you. The woman with the jewelry got all money back in the time frame I promised and she was vicious and out of control. The first woman changed her my mind while programs were running.  All got full moneY back. I was harmed injured here . This was unfair and cruel. Im sorry I was injurbelieve believe in my programs.

I'm a dedicated owner and this complaint is unfair

AUTHOR: B seif - ()

Refund was given. Programs are running and well liked. I'm a dedicated owner who was injured and my reputation is being ruined over an angry person who is unreasonable.  This is unfair and morally wrong. I'm guilty of Injuries and life timing my accounts in to say thanks . my god this is a moral shame

Excuses

AUTHOR: B seif - ()

I'm a close friend of barbaras who witnessed all the horrors of all she has been thru . I watched her manage her company with all the legal proof of her claimed injuries. These were no excuses. I witnessed her dedication in running networking programs after her 2 car accidents in rehab via nationwide insurance. She is honest and had a very unfortunate year . She never tried to hurt anyone . The accident in her home is legally signed by the property manager of her home taking responsibilty for her companies losses.  It's a shame what  she endured

Why are you so angry

AUTHOR: B seif - ()

1. I near refused paying you back. 2. I waited less tHan a week to send a check 3 you didnt see the post date please .it was circled and a letter was attached . 4 I tried to calm her on the phone as a professional - she carried on Threatening me -why? Because I agreed to give her a refund . 5That wasnt good enough . I mailed immediately today cancelling appts . I wanted her to have her money. Even with that she's not satisfied ? Why? I have wonderful emails from my accounts re my business . Sorry I had an emergency and was injured . I never could hurt anyone intentionally.  I've dedicated my life to human service.  Sorry I'm not perfect but I care

#6 REBUTTAL Owner of company

This is my third rebuttal I'm very upset

AUTHOR: B seif - ()

Would like to answer 2 more accusations that I missed in the last complaint .  She said how can a company be short in cash! Very simply its the same reason Im telling the truth.My injuries took

place and im trying to get back on my feet. Once again all occurred and legally documented . I've paid people back even at the expense of my health care insurance / Scammer ., sorry I'm not. My programs are great and I'm proud I endured .Secondly, she said I have excuseS. No I had real reasons to delay expos -I couldn't walk or move my hand after 2 car accidents and a fall in my home . All is witnessed and documented . My accounts were lifetimed in as a thank you for being so kind . The woman who last filed this rip off report was out of control both on the phone and in email. I did return her money and will return the last $80 dollars timely . She demanded a pay pal deposit or else by 12 pm today. I mailed the money - $220 at 1pm canceling business appts. This report  was unfair . If I said no refund - that's another story. The check bounced because it was post dated w a letter . She ran it to the bank without calling. I then issued an immediate two part refund in solid money order form

More excuses

AUTHOR: jen abatiello - ()

 This is be my last post and contact with Barbara Seif...I was not going to respond but decided to because again more excuses and no accountability.

I do sell jewelry! She kept me "exclusive" because I did not fit into being a part of a WELLNESS EXPO! Again another way to hook the bait...YOU ARE "EXCLUSIVE".  Shame on me...Red Flag!  Exclusive Jewelry Person at a WELLNESS FAIR do not fit in there but she made it seem SOOO great.  AWESOME TAKE MY $300 ... MY FAULT!

POSTED DATE CHECK...I deposited it. I didnt notice the date!  I got the check and immediately ran to the bank with it.  Any SANE person would do the same.

I did not threaten her...I gave her the OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE IT RIGHT under MY terms! is that a threat?  When you cant deliver the terms you may interupt it as a threat. But I did not threaten.  Did I yell....ABSOLUTELY! 

March 3, 2014 my conditions were a refund by the 6th or I would report her.  I got excuses and pleas for it to be Saturday March 8th SO i gave her until Saturday.  Saturday March 8th came and I got an excuse that it would be monday.  Monday came and I got an excuse that it would be Tuesday.  Tuesday comes and I get a tracking confirmation...Wednesday the check comes so I run it to the bank and deposit it!  ONLY TO FIND OUT IT IS POST DATED FOR A MONTH LATER....Who in their right mind would not yell! I YELLED...

And then I am suppose to let it all go now because she sent me partial payment?  Lady keep it!  You need it way more than I do!  She does not know how to run a business and she takes people on a run for their money!  I considered my money good as gone back in September when I handed it over to her.  I am a person that will take action and stand up...this will NOT happen again!  I am happy just letting people know...BEWARE SHE IS A FRUED!

I have returned money to people who weren't happy . Most were understanding. This particular complain't was from a women selling jewelry .

No date was sent for refund just a refund I mailed a check as I said I would post dated with a letter . This account nevEr called me first tdiscusses the date on the check. She went and put it in the bank . When it didnt clear I called her immediately and told her I was sending a money order for half the next day and the other half the following week . She was screaming and threatening me both in emails and over the phone . she demanded payment in her Paypal account by 12pm in Friday. This was impossible for me. She said thstbthriws I do what she wanted or she would report me as she did. I mailed out not $150 but $220 of the $300 on the refund. The remaiNing $80 is going out with a money order next day mail in less than 7 days. I emailed her a tracking number on both the money order and postage . Her email response was that she reported me and wrore this rip off report . I'm sorry I got hurt . I only want the best for my accounts n program . Circumstances are legally verified and true.
