===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
National Association Of Professional Women ALERT: is now Targeting Women Garden City New York
In 1998, the National Association of Securities Dealers fined of Oceanside NY $50,000 and barred him for life from contact with any stock or securities brokering. See page 7 of the NASD's Disciplinary Action Report, here:
For the last 10 years, has been involved in one scam after another. His newest scam is called the National Association for Professional Women. Like all of his prior scams (mostly phoney "who's who" organizations, see below), uses high pressure telemarketing tactics to prey on young professional women.
My wife was recently pressured by telephone into joining the NAPW, paying out hundreds of dollars. When she showed me the website, it was immediately clear that the NAPW is nothing but a scam designed to look legitimate on the surface. The combination of high-pressure telemarketing and a slick looking website is a very powerful combination when stroking the egos of unsuspecting women.
In reality, the "services" at NAPW are virtually worthless. The "special offers" you get with a NAPW membership are the same offers you can find on Internet coupon sites (a free day at Jenny Craig, discounts for rental cars, a few % off at Dell computers, etc... all this is publicly available).
The "resume development" service? Nothing more than a "partnership" with a legitimate job service called www.careerbuilder.com -- where you can get the exact same services directly.
"Networking events?" What a joke. Ask the NAPW about the last "networking event" in your area. It didn't happen, and likely never will. Better advice - join a legitimate trade or professional organization in your area of interest - there are thousands, and they DO have regular events in your geographical area.
"Online forum?" There are hundreds of super on-line forums for professional women - and they are all free. General or specific networking forums - they are all there. Want to network with other professionals? Use a legitimate (and free) linking service, such as www.linkedin.com
Before starting the NAPW, refined his high-pressure techniques for years in a number of "who's who" telemarketing scams, variously called the "Cambridge Who's Who" / "Metropolitan Who's Who" / "Empire Who's Who" (etc..). You can read literally hundreds of testamonies all over the Internet from people who were sucked into this high-pressure sales job. Some people have even set-up websites with hot-links to all the terrible things Mr has done to people. As of today, there are nearly 100 entries ALONE here at Ripoffreport on his "who's who" scams.
Legitimate "Who's Who" organizations do NOT charge you for a listing in their database. You are selected. Certainly you can purchase additional services from a legitimate who's who organization, but they do NOT pressure you, and you are never subjected to boiler-room telemarketing. Legitimate who's who organizations are recognized by public libraries, who keep copies on hand. A good example of a legitimate who's who organization is Marquis: http://www.marquiswhoswho.com.
For anyone considering giving your cash to the NAPW.... run away as fast as possible, and be glad you read this first. Guys like him should be locked up and the key thrown away. The fact that he is now specifically targeting women makes this man a menace to society second only to child predators, in my opinion.
