Editors UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to People Helping People; PHP Agency for its commitment to excellence in customer service.
Ripoff Reports discussions with PHP have uncovered an ongoing commitment by the company to total client and associate satisfaction. This means that clients and associates can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any complaints or concerns. PHP listens carefully to complaints and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.
PHP is committed to mutually beneficial relationships with all of their clients and business trainees past, present and those in the future. [continued below]....
After speaking with the management at PHP and emailing anyone who filed a complaint in the past, Ripoff Report is proud to give PHP a positive Rating. Patrick Bet-David, the Founder and CEO of PHP, stated We carefully consider all client complaints as constructive criticism and use them as tools to improve. Our clients and associates are the face of our business and their satisfaction is of the utmost importance. We value them above all else, and look forward to continually improving so that their experiences with PHP remain strong, consistent and positive. We are not perfect and given the number of agents and clients we have, naturally there are complaints about unsuitable agent conduct but we have always and will continue to resolve such complaints and take appropriate action against any agents who are found to have conducted themselves improperly or unethically.
In an effort to minimize complaints about the $150 to get started as a PHP associate, PHP requires that all of their directors and associates reinforce that the $150 is for the initial training only. PHP also offer a 72-hour full-refund period.
Patrick Bet-David told Ripoff Report that the PHP business model to build a business is referral based. This approach to develop referrals and clients through an agents warm market has allowed the company to share information about financial concepts to a very broad group and is the core of their success. Patrick also stated they have strict restrictions on cold calling and marketing tactics to meet all compliance issues. We work hard with our agents to avoid any miscommunication that could result in a complaint.
PHP has pledged that improper or unethical behavior by their associates is severely condoned. There are bound to be instances of unsuitable agent conduct due to the number of agents and clients they have, but appropriate action is and will always be taken to resolve any complaints.
Most importantly, PHP recognizes that complaints posted on Rip-off Report (whether true or not) are issues that need to be addressed, not ignored. If handled correctly, complaints can be valuable learning opportunities. With the feedback generated by Rip-off Reports Investigation PHP has made organizational changes allowing its clients and associates a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a positive experience. ??
In summary, after Ripoff Reports review, which included discussions with Patrick Bet-David and some associates, Ripoff Report is convinced that PHP is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client and associate satisfaction.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
People Helping People Cathy Medina Employment Scam, Collecting Resumes at LAUSD Job fairs, faux Job Interview Northridge, California
I wanted to let you know about this company posing as a legitimate Job Interview. While attending a LAUDS job fair a couple of weeks ago, a woman posing as a representative of LAUSD asked participants that were in line to please present their resumes for potential review. She obtained a slew of resumes from those that were waiting in line, mine was one. A couple of days later I got a call from a Cathy Medina @ (818) 792-1279 asking if I wanted to come in for a potential interview from People Helping People. The address she gave was 8550 Balboa Boulevard Suite 216 Northridge, CA 91325. My "spidy senses" started tingling and decided to do a background check on the company.
Needless to say the link above came up from Rip Off Report. My colleague who also attended the fair received the same phone call. Please pass this information on to your constituents. It is a tough job market out here, time, gas and resources are at a premium for those who are looking for legitimate work. Thanks for your time and attention in bringing this scam to the light, for those who can potentially fall victim to this type of nonsense!
(This is an attempt to get you to buy into an MLM scheme not an legit employment opportunity)
My faux job interview was to be held on Saturday, July 17, 2010 @ noon. Needless to say I won't be there, but the joke is on them. I wish I could send someone undercover to tape this charade and them blast it on You Tube for the world to see!
She also gave me this web address:
