This is a get-rich-quick scheme, a MLM pyramid, a promise of your own successful business. Then when you finally get to open a branch, they leave you stuck with a lease, they dont pay anything for you and make you sign a consignment agreement for 1000's, and leave you fending for yourself. LOOK up SCENTURA on ripoffreport.com and read everything. There is a former Scentura branch manager that was in this scam for many years, but got a CONSCIENCE about taking advantage of people. 
What has our society gotten itself into? We dont trust each other anymore, we take advantage of the weak and desperate, we have lowered ourselves, and money is our main goal - not family or friends. Our Mercedes and BMW and fancy house in ELK RUN, Maple Valley matter more!
 Dont get me wrong I need toilet paper and my nice car too, but what will I have to do to get it? I choose not to take advantage of others.
PEOPLE do a heart check! Anyone out there with some heart?
 SHAME ON YOU ANDREW SHECKELL AND TAYLOR TRUONG.
 You guys seemed like nice people.  What would your father say about your business practices? Does he run PENNY SALSA like this?
Hey DAD, ERIC HAGEE, what did you teach your boy? Do you run your Produce distribution company this way? Do you scam SAFEWAY with your salsa?

If you want to make money at selling FAKE perfume, buy it off the internet and sell it at a reasonable price. You can buy this for $1.00 -$6 each depending on how much u buy. And sell it for $10! like they do. You wont get rich but it will be legit.

Dont reply to any Craigslist.org job listings under the header Wholesale distribution in customer service, admin, or retail. Matter of fact email Craigslist to ban their ads. This is the lifeblood of their business.  This business is a scam. They are all over the country. We need to shut them down. Call the IRS, THe Department of Labor, The Atty generals office-consumer affairs division, the FTC, the Department of Revenue, The BBB, the Secretary of State to report them as a fake LLC, Your local news stations-especially Jesse Jones at News 5. If you know anyone in the perfume industry call and report them for trademark infringement. 
For those of you who feel that these people will come thru for you, good luck! Its not for me to force my will on you, but let me know how your branch is doing, send me a rebuttal with your new branch phone number, Ill call you and we can talk!

The Real Story. Plain and Simple.

AUTHOR: JHyde400 - (United States of America)

A lot of people come onto these complaint boards to slam Scentura, or the office that recruited them, or the product, etc.

It's really not that complicated. You're given a product that you don't have to pay for until after you sell it.  Then you're taught how to sell it.  It's a numbers game, just see the people. Not a very exciting or glamorous way to sell something, but it works. Companies all across the country are using this sales strategy. It's called Direct Sales, and it's not illegal. Warren Buffett recently bought a direct sales company (The Pampered Chef).

Once you're strong in the field, you train others and run sales trips. This is a microcosm of running an office.  Learn to run a sales trip and manage money/merchandise for 3 or 4 people, then move onto running an office with 20 or more people, and thousands in money/merch.

After you've learned to run teams and trips, you learn the administration and recruiting.

Then you get a shot to run you're own deal.  That's all there is to it.

It's not a job, it's a chance to learn a business FOR FREE.  It's a chance to have someone else fund the opening of YOUR business.  And yes, they make money when you open your office.  Which is why they are invested in your success.  This is why they start new groups every week. The more people they can teach this business and get them into their own office, the more money they make.  That's how you know their desire to help you succeed is for real, that's how you know they're not lying to you - YOU WILL GET YOUR OWN OFFICE if you finish training.  

Every owner pays the same price on the merchandise.  There are people who have only been open a couple years that are making more money than people who've been doing it 5 years. It's not a pyramid, it's a level playing field.  Everyone has the same opportunity to open their own office and promote out new owners.  The margins and the opportunity to make money are the same, whether you've been around for 20 years, or you're brand new. And doesn't it make sense to work in an environment where everyone around you actually wants you to succeed, versus secretly hoping you fail so you don't take their job?  You decide.

If it's not for you, don't do it.  The way people talk on these scam boards, they act like someone held a gun to their head and made them do it.  And I'd be willing to bet they were NEVER ONCE told they'd receive a salary, an hourly wage, or any other set pay during training or when they open.  More likely, they were given income PARAMETERS.  Which means if you do things right, you can expect to make between X and Y.

And once they started, they probably signed an Independent Contractor agreement. You know what that means? It means you're not an employee.  You know why?  Because it's not a job.  You're in training to learn a business.

Either do the business, or don't.  It's not that complicated.
