Centurion Global Group has several companies under the same name. The owner is John Joseph. One of these companies provides PPP (Private Placement Programs) or financing services. In this company, I worked as a VP of Emerging Markets from November 2010- May 2011. Base salary that was promised to me was $30k/year + commission from projects. I have built a client network in Easter Europe, established a name for this company, and have developed a base of reliable brokers. My portfolio pf projects ranged from $20M to $1.5B.
I have also helped set-up the opening of branches in Ireland and Moscow. None were opened. All of this was done solely out of trust in the founder of the company, John Joseph. I believed in his capabilities, something he bragged about to employees and clients alike. Meanwhile, I had spent my personal money on marketing and other expenses. Why? Because Mr. Joseph would not pay his employees, and only fed us more promises. When I was ready to call it quits, he agreed to pay me $9/hour for one month.
Office stuff was constantly changing as nobody got paid and people kept leaving. During this period of 6 months, not one project was realized! Money deposited by clients mysteriously disappeared somewhere. I am convinced that John Joseph and CGG cannot provide the services they offer. They don't have assets, nor capabilities. All of this looks like a big scam! They require huge prepayments without any guarantees; no service was done afterwards. To participate in the PPP program the client had to deposit at least $500K!
Finally, I quit the company (in may, 2011), but they still use my name, my client network, and advertize using my personal information (they have kept all my info on their website http://www.centurionglobalgroup.com/russia.html ). Using me they try to scam Eastern European clients, because those people trust me. Today, December 8th, 2011, my info is still on their website. People, beware! Do not do any business with this company! Do not waste your time and your money!
