Charlie O' Conner and Golden circle distribution1049 queen st Southington, Connecticut United States of America
Charlie O' Conner and Golden circle distribution Charles W O' Conner victimized me by fraudelant recruitment and unjust-enrichment by misguiding me and selling me dream and i bought into it by investing my hardearned money. Beware of golden circle in Southington , Connecticut
*UPDATE Employee: the truth
I invested over 25k borrowing all the money from my father. I bought a brand new van which cost me over 10k and secured a 4 year lease at an office, bought all types of office related material as well as furniture and tvs. Charlie O' Conner send kevin o conner who is his younger brother to recruit and help me get the office rolling. Kevin o conner never paid me rent or anything on time; infact always cried broke when the first of the month came. Kevin o conner also played a part in me loosing my business and charlie o conner new he was responsible however looked past that because blood is obviously thicker then water. My number as a distributer under charlie o conner got cancelled because "kevin o conner" who was a seperate entity and his own distriubter using some of my office space to conduct business failed to pull a background check on an individual. We had a deal that when kevin hires a class all kids are his until there icebreaker weekend is over so he was responsible for pulling the background because he hired him because in the practice weekend demos may be setup with neighbors in the neighborhood not just family and friends. between december and january charlie o conner started charging me 100$ more for a kirby which i paid so i was paying 700$ instead of 600$. Charlie o conner gets them for 500$ or less. when i contested the price charlie o conner stated that he cant sell me kirbys anymore because my number is cancelled and he doesnt know if i will get it back. When i said what about my office and my van i make payments for and my investment? his answer, Sell your van its a loss.
If charlie o conner told me in the begining and disclosed everything i couldve made a wiser decision however he didnt tell me anything. He told me this is a great franchise business and never said '1' complain and they take away your franchise. He just kept bragging on how he made this much and how his lifestyle is this and that... I have no problem with kirby or anything infact kirby is a great product its the best on the market and kirby is a great company thats been around forever. My issue is with Charlie o conner and golden circle for scamming me into selling me a dream and having me invest and get knee deep into the business and then pulling the rug from under my feet. The methods of recruiting are defrauding. Now im stuck in a big lease and out thousands and thousand of dollars.
In the begining i trained over 4 weeks for which i didnt get paid a cent for. Drove miles and miles to rallies and morning mandatory meetings and participated. I wasnt paid for my participation in the madatory morning meetings at southington over the months either. Be carefull and watch out for Charlie o conner in southington. Kirby is a great business and if your looking to get into it there are other offices that will gladly hire you and run an ethical business and dont pressurize you to sell kirbys to your families and friends that truly cannot afford them. I feel like i got scammed and what happened to me was no less then a violent crime because it has had a detrimental affect on my livelihood. Iam going to be peacefully protesting outside his office in an attempt to get justice and reimbursed for my investment and time because i was mislead and swindled to believe certain things and wasnt disclosed the most important ones. If you have been scammed by them or someone you know exercise your first amendment right to freedom of speech and picket his office with signs dont just get dishearted and leave it. These scams and lies have to stop. Charlie o conner send his brother kevin o conner with a form stating release of all claims with a check for $1000 something in an attempt to pay me off pennies to the dollars im owed and suppress my voice and options.
Stay far away from charlie o conner and kevin o conner and matt o conner in ct southington. They will smoothly swiftly rob you blind of your money and never disclose the facts in the begining. I really trusted charlie o conner and believed everything he told me because he seemed like an honest selfmade millionare however if he has any morals he should reimburse me for my money and next time before promoting a person disclose the fact that one complaint and your shutdown. Ive never heard of that in any franchise business...
Please be careful and makesure you do your research before they have you sign any paperwork, infact have an attorney review the paperwork before you sign. I guarantee you the attorney will tell you its a fishy contract prepared in the companies favour and only them. Iam trying to come to a settlement with charlie o conner however he is not willing to meet me half way either so i will be protesting peacefully outside his business until he does. Be care and stay away from CHARLIE O CONNER KEVIN O CONNER and MATT O CONNER. I have lost 9 months of my life and over 20k and also hundreds of hours of unpaid work including training. I wont get my time back but hope i get some of my money because iam in a very bad position now after dealing with charlie o conner.
