This is a business that needs to be ran out of Lousiana just like it left Texas. This man sells people pipe dreams and false success stories that never include anyone but himself. If you've made it this far maybe you have been scammed too. He uses God as a cover up, I guess it makes him feel better after he cheats a person out of their money. This man is a cold hearted individual who only thinks of himself. And get this he has his scam down to an art. He first places an ad in the American Classifieds and makes it sound so good. After arriving you fill out a piece of paper, then you meet his wife for an interview, you are then told to come back for a second interview. Now this is really where the scamming begins. You sit in a room, with however many people he can get to come in and feed false hopes to, he is introduced as though he is a someone you have to meet.
For hours you listen to him ramble on about himself, a book he has read, and his god (by the way which is definitly not God of ALL) but money. He repeatedly tells you that you, you're not a success because of how you think; he tells you, you're a slave to a wage working a 9-5 making someone else rich. Well after thinking about him saying that he is a millionaire, I pondered how he got that way. It was because of people which sat in this room week after week buying into a well crafted and rehearsed way of saying "Make me money and I'll show you how to get rich!"
This 15 year long scammer (that's how long he's been in the business so he says) has learned how to protect himself because he leaves no proof to get caught. He has put people out of his place of business for requesting their paycheck. He tells of a sure fine way for you to make good money it's what he calls crew which consists of leaving your family for 3-5 days to go make money for him. You really don't make much for yourself, let me explain. You give approx. 5-20 dollars for gas each time you get in a car so that's 20-100 within 5 days. He says this is a part of enterpuernurialship. Then you pay a deposit for the hotel room of $20, if you meet your quota it is "possible" for you to get your $20. Then when you sell the perfume you are to charge an extra $1 on every bottle, this covers the room (yeah right).
I could go into specific detail but it will be a book on how crooked he does things. Look at approximate dollar counts, if there are 7 people on crew at $20 a head there's $140 and he only gets 2 rooms no matter how many people. This is how he does this, he tells the crew leader or the second (as he calls them) to tell the motel attendant that they want a room with 2 beds. But when you get it, find a place to sleep cause that's all you get. You are to merch from 9am to 9pm, that's more than the basic 9 to 5 "slave wage" job. Wow, I hope you are realizing that the so called "slave wage" job doesn't sound so bad. Here's a few more calculations, let's say you have a 50 bottle qouta at $36 a bottle that's $1800 that you have collected for the duration of your time. Now if you are making $5 a bottle only $250 dollars of that $1800 is yours. Guess where the other $1550 goes, to the "Promoter". I'm quite sure that's how he pays for those two homes that he talks so much about (one in Texas and another in Bossier City) and the two Cadillac vehicles. Oh yeah and the lavish living he speaks so highly of. Think about those 7 that may be on crew, at $1550 a head he has now made $10850. Now what has he paid for; not the room, not the gas, not the food, he just pays for the the product.
Oh yeah, if you drive your car you get an extra $100 dollars and then you might get one of the other bonuses that you are eligible for. He leads you to believe that you can get more than one bonus but you can only get what he feels like he wants you to have. And please don't quit before payday you forfeit any and all bonuses. What else is wrong with this picture? Most places, if not all require for you to have permits in order to sell, if you go to jail, you're on your own. The last calculation I want you to take notice of is how many hours you work, If you're on crew for 4 days that's 48hrs. and if you some how manage to make $500 you have only made a little over $10 an hour. You may think, not so bad right! Take that $500 and subtract $50, oh this is for your savings, in which you will never see if you quit. And only you can calculate how much you have spent on crew and if you can afford to do this, maybe you could if you were rich like the "Promoter". You will never get rich working like this, but thanks to this loser, if you don't make quota you can expect the gift of being called a WPS which is a worthless piece of *@!* so he says. You can take your chances on thinking that this no good con-man will do right by you or you can inform as many as you can about this fake, no good, lying man who cheats people out of their money and uses God as a cover. Boy, he is an awesome example of a way to be a true sinner and I can't believe he would dare play with God and call himself a Christian.
