This person and their company owe their former employees thousands of dollars in back pay. They keep promising to pay but for months, they have never sent a dime. Employees went into debt waiting for paychecks, including going into a 401K to pay the mortgage. This person has since put thier radio station back on the air with new employees they will likely rip off with no intention of paying their former employees the money owed. This person is a deadbeat employer and all businesses and individuals working with them I hope will be wary if they must be involved with them at all. This is not the first time they have been accused of ripping of others. Look into their court record and see they were taken to court by previous investors.

Jeff Loper and Convergence Entertainment are deadbeat employers and will rip you off of owed wages. Do not trust!!!!

#1 UPDATE Employee ..inside information

More useful information

AUTHOR: Former Insider - ()

 

It is true that Richard Delancey and his partner Elizabeth Marten did in fact rob CEC Media (by embezzling funds) - intercepting and cashing company checks, making personal purchases with company funds and engagement in “off the books deals” with clients.

They furthermore hired employees that they had no intention of paying , pocketed withheld taxes, did not comply with state and federal labor law fundamentals such as registering employees with the proper state and local authorities, Also they stole from advertisers and clients by selling them ads in “Champack” (a regional coupon booklet) and intercepted client’s checks and personally cashed them. Liz and Rich never published, promoted or distributed Champack as promised.

It is true that some monies were recovered and CEC Media Officer Jeff Loper made partial payments to a hand full of beleaguered un paid staff (spring 2011) some employees are still owed tens of thousands of dollars. (One employee is owed over 50 thousand dollars in back pay) These staff members have little recourse because their employment at CEC was never registered with the Vermont Department of Labor or IRS.

Inside sources can confirm that Mr. Loper was made aware of MR’ Delancey’s and Ms. Martins malfeasance as early as august 2010 but failed to take action.

Mr. Loper claims that he is not responsible for monies owed to employees, venders and compliances fees and fines and that the 2 management teams in place from the spring of 2010 to the spring of 2012, But he had all employees fill out W2 Forms, file I9’s and directed their assignments directly.

He is directly responsible for all unpaid debts including salary. This poster has it on good authority that Mr. Loper continues to raise money and has not paid any of his debt to date. He currently resides in Florida

FYI Rich Delaney is doing business in the DC area under the name: Team Velocity - Stay clear!

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

from convergence shareholders

AUTHOR: Convergencce shareholders - ()

The information posted is factually incorrect. Convergence was only a shareholder in WNMR 107.1 radio. The business New Media Radio LLC was run into the ground by the manager Richard Delancey - who controlled all funds and hired all employees.

When Convergence shareholders found out checks were bouncing they took over the business and paid off the employees even though legally they were not responsible. Then the company was closed.

Convergence as well as the employees were harmed by the Delancey management. Convergence didnt have signature on the checkbook either - Only delancey
