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!

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Centurion Global Group is a Scam

AUTHOR: Creo - ()

 I also worked at this company in the beginning of 2011. Centurion Global Group supposedly hired me as VP of Entertainment. I did not get paid for any of my services. John Joseph claimed that he went out of the country and a deal went terribly wrong. Employees continued to quit the company due to Mr.Joseph unprofessionalism and lies. Months went by, none of the employees received any money. I built clientale with many entertainment artists and companies. When it comes to being a trusting company, Centurion Global Group is not on the list. I am in the works right now in taking this company to court.

 

Thanks,

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Don't believe anything this article says.

AUTHOR: Arbiter entertainment - ()

John M. Joseph has a criminal history and many bankruptcies. Before relocating to Atlanta,Ga he lived in Brookshire, Texas. Check the public records. There are numerous companies he collected fees from but never provided any funding. And of course Centurion Global Group never returned the fees even though John Joseph signed contracts stating they would if they did not provide funding. That's his scam angle. If you do business with this company, never let them get their hands on your money.

#3 UPDATE Employee

Centurion Global is World Wide Firm

AUTHOR: M.Wright/Public Relations CGG - (United States of America)

Centurion Global is a world wide consulting and funding company. All of our consultants both former and present are respectable, professional and great human beings who would never say such slanderous things let alone put them on the internet. Our clients are very demanding, as they should be. We do business with large private companies, wealthy
investors and even governments. Our firm does not advertise nor do we pay base salary. All consultants and representatives are paid by commission as all high end sales positions are paid. No company is insulated from slanderous attacks from its competitors. It is my hope that the reader is intelligent enough to talk to his CGG representative
about any concerns he or she may have. If anyone is interested in our funding opportunities or becoming a representative, please feel free to contact me at any time. Mwright.publicrelations@centurionglobalgroup.com
