I wanted to inform those whom have been a victim, what I have discovered. Harvard Professional Group was a company that were following deceiving practices in which Phoenix Executive Group seem to be on the same boat. There are many similarities, from how they treat the client (YOU) from begining to end.

Therefore I believe there may be some type of connection with these two companies. Their offices so close together. Are they owned/run by the same that were at HPG? I am not sure.

However, only when PEG employees pictures can be taken and compared it to those at HPG. There is no law that I am aware of, from taking pictures of someone in a PUBLIC area. Pictures from a video can be obtained by UPN Nine News in which they ran a story (end of November after Thankgiving) that exposed Harvard Professional Group which has helped force these type of companies out of business. Then you can compare and see if there is a connection.

Or maybe someone whom has been to HPG can go to PEG and see for themselves.

Check out on Mapquest or any other Street search and decide for yourself if they were really close together. It's not just them being close together that is interesting, but the way they run their business and their similar lies are right on, as if it was the same company.

Here is HPG address: 379 Thornall St. Edison NJ 08818
Here is PEG address: 100 Wood Ave. South Ste.121, Iselin NJ 08830

Both of these offices are the only ones that are registered with the BBB. The other offices are not.

IMPORTANT Information: At this time Edison Police have a detective investigating the owner of HPG in which they received the information from the FBI!

I hope this helps in your continued success in getting back what is rightfully yours since they had to deceive you to get the money from you at your time of need and vulnerability.

We appreciate you can place your name and address BUT how come no one can get through to ANY of the offices of Phoenix Exec. and ESPECIALLY the one you provided.

Phoenix Executive Group is not or has ever been affiliated with Harvard Professional Group.

Joe Scanio or Michael Poz has never been affiliated with Phoenix Executive Group.

That our office happens to be in the same area, is a coincidence of this great location of Metro Park (junctions of the Garden State, Route 1 and Rt. 287).

That postings are put up with misleading information based on someone's speculation without facts should tell you what the author is all about.

Be aware in what you post...

AUTHOR: Helpful Sam - (U.S.A.)

Please be aware that Joseph E Scanio
(formal listed owner of the now closed Harvard Professional Group)

and Michael Poz (who Joseph Scanio hired, supported, worked with and SO-Called FIRED from Harvard Professional due to his actions that Scanio SO-Called was not aware of the disception tactics)

read all statements on this website for their information gathering. Keep any game planning to disrupt and help STOP their deceiving actions in code. In other words, don't let them know EVERYTHING!!! However, keep helping others and do it as a group to STOP them and close their doors!

Those whom have been deceived by them, NOW have more power and evidence to get your money back.
So place the action behind it as mentioned in previous postings.

Scanio and Poz, your days are numbered once again. This time you shall receive tougher repercussions!!

Help for Diane

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

Glad to see Phoenix is being dealt with. There's so many of these corrupt operations out there! My experiences are with Michael Pozd and Career Developers Consulting Group (CDCG), also in Edison, who was previously Harvard Professional Group.

John, I've contacted Brenda, we spoke briefly, and she is going to follow up with me. You should be able to find my personal post under Career Developers AKA Michael Pozd, I'm El New Brunswick! I've updated my status/results with CDCG

Let's keep on with stopping these scammers!
Thanks John, and all others, for keeping up in helping us victims, especially the avenues to pursue to re-claim losses and/or stop these activities.

State of NJ Files Suit Against Phoenix March 2006

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

State says consultant failed executives
Civil lawsuit alleges it defrauded jobless
Friday, March 10, 2006
BY JOSEPH R. PERONE
Star-Ledger Staff

State regulators have accused a Middlesex County company of engaging in fraudulent practices by charging unemployed executives thousands of dollars for bogus help in finding a high-paying job.

The civil suit, announced yesterday, was filed in Middlesex County by the state Division of Consumer Affairs against Phoenix Executive Group of Iselin.

The company, which also has offices in Princeton and Parsippany, is accused of violating the Consumer Fraud Act by misrepresenting it had an extensive network of contacts through which clients could obtain high-salary jobs. The state is seeking restitution for 28 former PEG clients as well as unspecified civil penalties.

"These clients paid PEG thousands of dollars with the expectation that they would get a high- paying job," said Kimberly Ricketts, state director of Consumer Affairs. "Instead, all they got was a snow job."

Lawrence Maglin, senior vice president of operations for Phoenix, declined to comment on the specific allegations in the complaint.

"We don't try cases in a public arena," he said in an interview.

In a statement, he said consumer complaints against Phoenix represent less than 1 percent of the company's client base and that most of those cases are resolved.

"Phoenix Executive Group is extremely pleased that we have helped a great number of individuals obtain better careers," the statement said. "Our efforts have not only benefited many of our clients, but have also improved the quality of life for their families. We welcome the opportunity to respond to any questions the Department of Consumer Affairs has about our business practices and are confident that we will be able to positively address any of their concerns."

The Star-Ledger reported last June that Phoenix had the highest number of consumer complaints against it of any career consulting firm registered with the state. Consumers said they paid up to $5,000 for little more than outdated job contacts and rsums that contained spelling and grammatical mistakes.

Consumers said they were dazzled with promises of six-figure salaries at multimillion-dollar companies, but job interviews never materialized. Some former Phoenix clients in Middlesex and Morris counties tried to get their money back in small claims court but had difficulty gaining a settlement because of the restrictive contract they signed with Phoenix.

Ricketts, the consumer affairs director, called the alleged conduct "unconscionable" because many of the clients were out of work for long periods of time and were at their most vulnerable.

The civil complaint, which was filed March 7, alleges Phoenix misrepresented that its network of contacts provided clients with access to "a hidden job market" not available through other sources.

The division also alleged the company falsely guaranteed permanent employment within a specific time frame and promised to provide temporary work until a full- time job was offered.

The company promised to provide job interviews and a minimum salary as well as a hiring bonus, according to the complaint.

Companies that violate the Consumer Fraud Act can face penalties of up to $10,000 for the first offense and up to $20,000 for each additional offense.
