On March 26th, 2006 my son went to Walmart. He come home telling me he had got a job traveling. I asked him what this job was and what did it consist of. He then told me that it was with this Magazine company that goes on road Door-To-Door selling magazines all over the U.S.
He told me he had met a girl by the name of Jessie and she had hired him and said that she would be here (at the house) to pick him up shortly. I was then shocked b/c he first did not have any I.D. on him, and i was only given the name of the company as Am press.. and that they had him packed and out the door in 10 minutes flat!
I started questioning the female mentioned above and asked her for any kind of crudencials or a business card.. the only thing she could tell me was.." Well we work through Am Press a*s. out of miami, with a woman named Sharyl, and her husband Brent.. and that they have a couple of children".. Brent being the manager.
She also let me know that they hire guys/girls b/w the ages of 18-25, that are not employed and looking for work, and like to travel. She told me he would get payed daily, and that in a couple of years he could infact become a "MILLIONAIRE" doing this type of job. She told me that they stay at motels where they travel to, when they travel. I asked her what motel they were staying at here, and she said "she don't know the name of it, but it's the one up the road that has a pool in it." I also asked her for a number I could reach my son at and all she could tell me was.." she didn't know it right off hand, and that she had left all that info at the motel." I was really shocked! I told her how i felt in so many words.
She then tried to reasure me, by telling me that "you're (I'm) doing pretty good and most parents act as if we are "kidnapping" there loved ones... and that infact one time in New York, b/c we travel in groups of 30 , ppl thought that we were a cult, and that i would here form my son every Sunday." And with this little bit of info, I told my son I loved him.. gave him hugs and kisses goodbye, and watched himleave out of the driveway still in shock and just as clueless as when i first found out about all of this. From that point there i had not heard from my son. Next time i had heard from my son was nine days later.
Mean while b/w this time left and not heard.. still looking for information and clues to link me with this company.. i found a number on my significant others cell phone. Infact this was the number that was given to my son, so that he could contact them while waiting for them to show up.I called the number. A man answered the phone and that his name was Brent and he was the manager, and he told me that he would give my son the message , and reasured me that i could contact my son on this number and that it would never be disconnected. The next time i heard from my son he told me that he had recieved any messages of me calling... that he did infact like the job/ people there, and that he had been very busy, too busy to call home. He told me that his day off was Sunday, and that he would try to call every Sunday.I had got one more call from my son telling me that he had bought a cell phone and he would call me with the number as soon as he could B/c they were not aloud the have cell phones.Since that day i had only heard from my son a few times the last day being May 13th, 2006 only b/c i had called that number to thank my son for the tulips he had sent for mothers day since he had not called me himself. He seemed very quiet and unable to give me direct answers saying that they were nere him and listening in on the conversation, instead of letting him talk privately.Since then I have tried numerous times to contact my son on this number. I then investigated this number, I was told Via:Opperator that this # was not a cell phone #, but infact a toll free business #, that had been disconnected. I did not know what to do from there.
The last time i heard from my son he was in Peartree, Tx. and that he would be going to California next to a town that started with a "P". My son goes by the name of Richard. He is 5'9", with strawberry blonde hair. He is in great physical health.
