Detroit Business Consulting Mike Rosenberg & Elizabeth Reichert Falsify Multilevel Marketing Scam Operates Like Pyramid Scheme BUT LEGAL SADLY Shady Door To Door Sales Instead of Promised Management Position FOUND ON LEGIT SITES LIKE CRAIGSLIST OR CAREER BUILDER D Troy, Michigan
The one heading Detroit Business Consultingthe ownerhis name is Mike Rosenberg, if that is in fact his real name. However, he does have a Facebook account, as does Detroit Business Consulting (DBC also has a multitude of other social networking sites set up as well, as do the other businesses/scams and their "owners"). The sad thing is that they are, or say that they're, recognized by the Better Business Bureau. DBC actually CONTACTED ME via e-mail regarding management positions, but it was all a lie (soon to be explained, if not already).
They said they found my resume on careerbuilder.com, monster.com, indeed.com, or similar sites (a possibility, most certainly). Regarding the interview processthe lobby was packed with applicants at the luxurious Troy location (an attractive office suite within a luxurious high rise building), who were promised management positions after rising through the scheme, which was really DOOR-TO-DOOR SALES selling energy/gas...however, I had also heard they've sold AT&T U-VERSE, but I cannot PERSONALLY attest to this, and that's the only "hear/say" I've felt compelled to list within this report.
99.9% of soon to be "Account Managers" are really door-to-door sales employees that have been lied to, so they quit; in the end, they actually LOSE money or are not compensated based on their performance (it's an already SATURATED market, it's not what they signed up for, no benefits, no gas compensation, NOTHING...it's all "bs"). Regardless, let's get back to the office & interview process, shall we?
If there ever was to be a problem with one of the "hire-ees", there was always loud hip music blasting in the lobby to make the office APPEAR to be a fun place to work for new recruits, but also used to drown out any potential dissonance in the office, should it arise during the interview processes or from current employees realizing the whole thing is a scam, and trying to expose the company.
These businesses, from what I've researched, are technically legal, as multi-level marketing businesses differ from Pyramid/Ponzi Schemes in only one way: Ponzi/Pyramid Schemes scam employees "on the bottom", who do the door-to-door sales, by promising to pay by HOW MANY PARTICIPANTS/POTENTIAL EMPLOYEES THEY RECRUIT, who would also be doing door-to-door sales, ill informed. Multi-level marketing businesses OPERATE IN THE SAME FASHION, and are just as shady and are just as much of a scam, but they "pay" (or say they will) by actually selling legit product
On a side note, don't "Detroit Business Consulting" management ads, e-mails, and employment opportunities in general that flash how much the employees are making (which are all lies, persuaded by the "owner" of the location to tell new recruits) & selling door-to-door as a slave getting ripped off so the "guys on top" can make all the money sound COMPLETELY DIFFERENT?!?!?!? In this sense, we are dealing with potentially hundreds of Cydcor businesses around the country that are all operating and scamming in a pyramid scheme-style "business", but are operating on the grey-area of the law (from what I've learned so far).
All scams/businesses say there are other offices by the same name across the country (in the case of "DBC", they say there's 23 other locations around the US, but a quick google search of the business name and that city yields no results, for example, as their websites and deliveries within the interview process suggest). I have included what I believe, thus far, is relevant to spark interest into a FULL FLEDGED INVESTIGATION, but probably not every bit of contact info I SHOULD HAVE provided...and INDEED I have more information, such as their personal Facebook account URLs and other pertinent information to illustrate the complexity of web design used to fool the average business applicant. If I can be of any more assistance, please let me know. I too almost got scammed by Detroit Business Consulting, having gone through their 3 day/3 interview process and almost taking the "job." I look forward to exposing this shady business practice to save others, like myself, that are fresh out of college looking to better ourselves & our future. I thank you ALL for your time. Best of luck on THE REAL job search ;)
