I worked for NorVergence in the Newark office. I was there for over a year....like everyone else I was let go because of NorVergence's bankruptcy. I never got my last pay check and I am getting medical bills dated back in November. NorVergence was taking money out of my pay since July 2003 for my medical benefits but never paying Qualcare. Now I am left with thousands of dollars in medical bills.

I just found out that Tom Salzano is in the process of or is going to open another business in real estate. The nerve of this man. I hope some people who worked for NorVergence and who use to be customers of NorVergence read this so we can stop this man from ever doing business again and screwing over more people.

I also found out that Tom Salzano has enough money in a Swiss bank account to open this business. If he has enough money to do this, then why can't he pay everyone the money is that is due them? This guys has MILLONS of dollars and the rest of us are STILL struggling with what Tom Salzano and NorVergence did to everyone. Let's stop him once and for all!!

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

Paul,

In Jennifer's defense, I too am an ex-NorVergence employee and agree that she could never have known what was being done to her. She, I, and many others just cannot think in fraudulent ways.

I agree with you that there are many Enrons out there. I personally believe that what NorVergence seems to have done is of Enron proportions - a huge scandal. It's a shame that people can hide behind incorporations because it wasn't the NorVergence incorporation that has caused all of this caos. It is the people behind the incorporation that did so. It's also a shame that the Sarbanes Oxley Act only applies to public companies. It should be ammended to aply to private companies as well.

Wait-A-Minute!!! I am having a fraudulent thought! Is it possible that the officers of NorVergence did not pay the double taxation associated with incorporation?!

You misunderstood; let me explain better.

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

Jennifer, here's what I meant. At some point in the job, you may have become aware that you were working for a fraudulent company. Once you realize that, there are several things you should do.

First, check if your deductions are being paid out. Health care deductions. I meant call your actual health care insurer, like Blue Cross, and ask if they have received regular payments. I did not mean call your doctor.

You assumed that because the job is deducting money, that it is being paid out for your health care. In reality, your employer was deducting your pay for health benefits, but never paying it to the insurer. Instead, he kept the money in his pocket.

One call to your health insurance company would have shown you this. You would have called and given them your policy number. They would have told you that all payments stopped in November of '03. In addition, your employer cancelled the policy at that time. Yet, he still continued to deduct money from your pay.

Unfortunately, this did not happen to me yet. I wish I was lucky enough to work for a fraudulent company. I would have sold one of those routers and embezzled the funds. From what I read, the contracts went for like $80k. Health insurance would have been the least of my worries, then.

You may have this happen again before you retire. There are tons of Enrons out there. Now, you'll know what to look for.

Best of luck in your next job!

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Check your Facts, They were taking money out of my pay check since July of last year for my health insurance.

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

Paul,

They were taking money out of my pay check since July of last year for my health insurance. The last time I ever went to the doctor's was back in November. The first time I received bills was in AUGUST OF 2004 telling me that I had no insurance since November of 2003. Now you tell me why I should check to see if I was still active if they were STILL taking money out of my check and I was receiving medical bills in August of 2004. I am currently filing a report with the Department of Labor to get everything taken care of. I'm sorry if you got screwed also but don't blame me for something that I had no idea was happening until after the fact.

Fraud cheats everyone it comes in contact with. Employees are no exception.

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

Jennifer, let me explain something to you.

First, fraud cheats anyone and everyone. Look back on this Tom Salzano and see how he lived his life. I guarantee you'll find a long string of people he cheated in one way or another.

Once you figured out that you were working for a fraud, you should have taken measures to guard your own money. Did you call your health insurance company and inquire about whether your policy was being paid or not? You should have.

Second, realize that he can pay you. He just chooses NOT to. He looks at you as just one of the suckers he has taken advantage of.

Third, if you really want to stop him, you're going to have to kill him. As long as he is out free and has money, he will continue to do the only thing he knows how to do. That is cheat people. So, you have to ask yourself, do you have what it takes to stop this person once and for all?

If the answer is no, then I suggest you get back to attending to your own financial affairs and put this all behind you.

#5 Consumer Suggestion

Refused Norvergence Job Offer

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

I turned down the Norvergence job offer. I was orginally told, that I had to memorized a 1 page script. When I received the packett it was 5 pages (3 pages in regular type, the other 2 in very small print). I also found no information about the company on the Internet. I would highly suggest others do research when doing business with a company that is promosing so much. Also, if one is considering employment, they should do the same. Most public companies have filings on the SEC website. Or one can do research by checking out Hoovers,etc. For a private company, some type of articles should be available. With Norvergence,it was a private company. The only information about the company was in chat rooms.
