I responded to the ad like you folks did and was told on the second day that there was a training fee of $399 which would be refunded at the end of the training period by the 'Host Dealership' After three days of "orientation' by Bob Stevens, we were turned over to the sales manager Ian Burlakoff to start our training. Ian immediately cancelled the training program and told us we were going onto the floor on straight commision. We (my fellow trainees) asked about a refund of our training fee since training was cancelled. Burlakoff told us that Stevens worked for a separate company and that we would have to take the matter up with him. I have a signed agreement stating that the refund would come from the host dealership. Also, the advertised $40,000 per first year " or we'll pay the difference " went out the window. I intend to look into the possibility ot taking this to small claims court unless some of you are thinking of a class action suit, which I would be interested in joining. Any thoughts?

They got me at Priority Toyota of Chester, Va in November of 2008!! I have help though!

AUTHOR: John Sydenstricker - (U.S.A.)

Hey, I had the same scam happen to me. Bob interviewed me, told me I would be great, and I went through the training and paid it all. Aftwerwards they said they would give us a call, and never did. It was a huge scam, and the dealership said they did not have anything to do with what he does. That he just uses a room in the dealership. I as well as the man this happened to in 2007, called NBC12 and they did not take interest. You would think after hearing it twice they would do something about it. I although did call wachovia, told them everything. They looked into it, and gave me my money back. I also gave them this website of proof. I hope they got him good!! I'm sure they don't just roll over for $300.00! I'm sorry this happened to you to. I know how it feels, you feel used and manipulated, and most of all FOOLISH because you told everyone you had such a great job...

URGENT ALERT for Jonkeith & the WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

Please 'Google' this- RIP OFF REPORT PRIORITY TOYOTA SCION AUTOMAX, and read Steve's Ripoff Report from 8/9/2007. You can plainly see that Bob Stevens' cell phone number has a New Jersey area code!!! It's (609). I'm almost certain that's a South Jersey area code!

Also read the 'Update' to that Ripoff Report entitled- 'Similar Post On The DODGE Page On This Site'. Look at the 4th paragraph!!!! Here's how it starts-

QUOTE: 'I predict that by sometime in early 2009 that the stock market takes that huge hit! After a full year of reality in 2008, the big collapse happens.' (end quote) 8/26/2007.

GUESS WHAT? I was RIGHT, wasn't I?

URGENT ALERT for Jonkeith!!!!!! Remember what you....

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

stated in your Ripoff Report! You said you were 'told' by the 'trainer' Bob Stevens, that the $399 would be refunded to you, correct? If the Dealership never told you that you'd get your money back, and you have nothing in writing that states this, then SUEING the Dealership will not work, right? Because Bob Stevens doesn't work FOR the Dealership, correct?

You'd have to track down Bob Stevens, who was the trainer, correct? Imagine how difficult that could be! He might travel around the country in a 'beat-up' Tundra pulling a 5th-wheel, correct?

DON'T BOTHER SUEING!!! FORGET SMALL CLAIMS COURT!!!!!! Hit that Dealership where it HURTS!!! Right in their POCKET!!!!!!!! Make that BIG SIGN that says this-
YOUR LIFE COULD BE IN DANFER IF YOU BUY A TOYOTA BECAUSE....

and sit outside of that Dealership with the fliers telling everyone to go to the consumeraffairs website after they 'Google' this- ENGINE SLUDGE, and tell them to click on 'Airbags' and read those complaints!!!!!

YOU'LL CAUSE SO MUCH DAMAGE TO THAT DEALERSHIP that it will effect them for MONTHS!!!!!!!!!! Maybe even YEARS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S You see, I DO read the Ripoff Reports that are posted here, unlike some others who may READ them, but don't UNDERSTAND what they're reading!!!

GOOD LUCK, Jonkeith!!!!

MAKE A BIG SIGN THAT WILL CAUSE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN SALES TO BE LOST THAT SAYS THIS-

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

YOUR LIFE COULD BE IN DANGER IF YOU BUY A TOYOTA BECAUSE......

And sit outside of that Dealership (off of their property) with that sign and display it to everyone driving by, and going into that Toyota Dealership!

Make sure to have fliers made up that say this- 'Google' this- ENGINE SLUDGE, and go to the consumeraffairs website about Toyota Engine Complaints and click on 'Airbags' when you are there and read the MANY complaints from Toyota owners whose AIRBAGS did NOT DEPLOY when they were in accidents in their Toyotas!!!

Add this to the flier- 'Google' this- SUIT: DEFECT REPORTS ALTERED TOYOTA PLANT, and read Katy Cameron's Lawsuit about DEFECT REPORTS that her supervisors were ALTERING and allowing DEFECTIVE PARTS to be put in TOYOTA VEHICLES!!!!!!! YOUR LIFE & YOUR CHILDREN'S LIVES COULD BE IN DANGER!!

If you do this, I'll bet that the General Manager of that Toyota Dealership would be out there with all of your LOST CASH!!!! If he didn't come out and pay you, then he's a COMPLETE IDIOT because his Dealership would LOSE SALES EVERYDAY!!!!!!

JUST DO IT!!!!! IT'S 100% TRUE, & IT'S 100% LEGAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!

KEEP US UPDATED.

#5 Consumer Suggestion

Ignore the Toyota troll Karl.

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

""First of all, forget about the $399 that you paid! IT'S GONE!!!!!!!""

If services (training) were not provided you have recourse to seek judicial remedy.

""Second, don't bother SUING! It's a WASTE of time & money and NO Lawyer is going to want to take a case for that amount. If he or she does, it'll cost you $2,500 in an UPFRONT RETAINER!!! SO FORGET ABOUT SUING!!!!!!!!!""

Ignore this nonsense from Karl the Troll. He's more interested in promoting his stupid poems than helping.

SMALL CLAIMS COURT is the way you should proceed. NO LAWYER is needed, hence there will be no lawyer fees for you-the idiot Karl doesn't seem to know this.
I suggest you file a claim against them in small claims court. It is very likely that once they are served, they will offer to settle with you.

Ignore the rest of Karl's foolishness. He doesn't bother to read any of the reports. He sees the word "Toyota" in the reports and off he goes on his childish rants and reposts his stupid poems.

Good luck in small claims court.

HERE IS WHAT YOU DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

AUTHOR: Karl - (U.S.A.)

First of all, forget about the $399 that you paid! IT'S GONE!!!!!!!

Second, don't bother SUING! It's a WASTE of time & money and NO Lawyer is going to want to take a case for that amount. If he or she does, it'll cost you $2,500 in an UPFRONT RETAINER!!! SO FORGET ABOUT SUING!!!!!!!!!

Here is what you & the others do-

Make up a BIG sign that simply says this-

YOUR LIFE COULD BE IN DANGER IF YOU BUY A TOYOTA BECAUSE......

And sit outside of the Dealership (off of their property) and let EVERYONE driving by, and walking by, see that sign. Make sure to have simple fliers made up that say this-

'Google' this- ENGINE SLUDGE, and go to the consumeraffairs website about Toyota Engine Problems and click on 'Airbags' and read all of those complaints. YOUR LIFE COULD BE IN DANGER IF YOUR TOYOTA'S AIRBAGS ARE DEFECTIVE!!!!! And please read the Lawsuit about DEFECT REPORTS being ALTERED TOO!!!!!!!!!!!

That's it!

NO ONE in their right mind would buy a NEW or USED Toyota after reading all of those complaints! NO ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NO ONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You could literally SHUT THAT DEALERSHIP DOWN and cause such a comotion that the General Manager of that Toyota Dealership would probably be out there paying all of you your $399 back, and maybe MORE, just to get you to stop & leave!!!!!

JUST DO IT!!!! It's 100% TRUE & it's 100% legal to do!!!! It's simply called this-

FREEDOM of SPEECH!!!!!

And guess what? You could contact the Local News Stations in your city just before you go out with your sign & they might put you on T.V. And if the Toyota Dealership tries to do anything to you 'physically', like harm you, it'll be captured on camera and then you could SUE FOR MILLIONS and an Attorney WOULD take that case!!!!!!

YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE BY DOING THIS!!!!!! JUST DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

WATCH HOW I CAUSE A COMOTION FOR TOYOTA CORPORATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It'll be UNLIKE anything ANYONE on this earth could ever imagine!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
