Jerry Hoffman, aka Jerold, Jerome, J.D, David Hoffman, aka Howard K Smith.
Who needs so many aliases? Who are you actually dealing with?
This man is an experienced scammer that views everyone as a source for profit and does not pay for work. You will not be compensated for your efforts. There will be excuses, promises, praise, intimidation, insults, smiles, but most of his "employees" will not get paid.
He will ask you to show him an example of what you can do, he will attempt to get portions of the work for free - while constantly leveraging the few he does pay as examples for those he feeds with promises. He does not recognize your rights, and his guarantees are worthless.
You won't be able to secure your work - he'll ask for final results before you get paid, so you'll be at his mercy.
"CONSTRUCTION COMPANY SEEKS ARCHITECT/AUTOCAD CANDIDATES
Construction group is building two concepts on a national level:
a. [continued below]....
..... A 20-thousand square feet store JUNIOR in various regions in the United States.
b. A mega store of 50-thousand square feet.
We are in need of Architects and Auto CAD Operators. Graphic artist background helpful."
"Immediate openings, career opportunity." - one project does not make a career - once he has his "prototype" what need will be of you? Will you get paid before his next "move"?
"Salary commensurate with experience. Bonuses based upon production." - he will offer you a poverty rate, and your bonus will be competing with other suckers for the prize of being not being one of the "marks".
Plans within plans, one ripoff leading to another.
Don't waste your time!
