Hi there,

I know its this would not be the best venue to voice our deepest disappointment to the actions and doing of one of your member organization but we do believe that as a society of reponsible individuals, you deserve to know the doings of Professional Global Marketing Data Services, LC, aka PGM Data Services. Last September 2007, PGM contracted my company, Sterling Global Call Center located in La Puente, CA to handle the overloads of their CATI projects in UTAH.

We then accepted the job and worked really hard to satisfy their requirements. To cut the story short, we've worked with them for almost three months and the payment scheme that we agreed upon was every30 days. They were ok on the first 3 invoices, howeever on the foourth and succeeding ones, they started to play tricks with us. Their Finance head, David Harris and Data Center Administrator Chris lott asn the pool of project managers namely Laura Brady, Scott Mcpherson, Chris Thorn and Shane Bassir were no were to found. We;ve sent several; emails to them and tried to contact them but everything fails. In totality, the amount billed to them reached over $80,000US. They still owe us over $40, 000US.

I am attaching the invoices and agreement that they signed with us and be the judge on how they handle their affiliates. I am telling this for you to know that having a member like PGM would ruin your credibilty and falsify your claims of being a reputable organization. Please take this as a warning not to entrust anything to PGM DATA SERVICES because after they are satisfied with what they want form you they will just run away. Our President even visited their site and was not offered even with a glass of water and was not entertain properly. And to all the companies who buy research services from affiliate firms of AMA, please beware of PGM DATA SERVICES... You think they are doing great but they are actually stealing your money. Beware of these people, David Harris, Stephen Zimmerman, Chris Lott and Bill Gamble...

Zimmerman Now Set Up in Kentucky

AUTHOR: Final Justice - (United States of America)

Having worked in this boiler-room scam house years ago right out of college in the roll of project manager myself, I am glad to see that Zimmerman finally got his just deserts and apparently was driven out of Utah by the legal system. Apparently it only took nearly two decades for the crappy Utah legal system to act.

These dirt bags were bouncing and withholding employee checks way back in the early 1990s and the state did nothing because of its crap anti-employee laws. Back then and based on what I see here even over 10 years later, employees in Utah have little recourse with deadbeat employers like Zimmerman and his ilk.

As for the Project Managers of whose names I recognized, I have little sympathy for being named. To have stayed with an organization like that rubs off. Plus, the environment left much to be desired. To call it a hostile environment is putting it lightly. One of the other project managers complained to Zimmerman and his henchmen about me and another non Mormon were drinking coffee and the smell was making her sick.

Not long after, Paria did a staff reduction that cleaned out... wow, all non-mormons. Of course, they tried to claim it was for cause to deny unemployment compensation. But in this one instance the state acted for employees and approved that's state's paltry unemployment. But it wasn't worth the trouble stirring the pot to try to file suit. Personally, I happily left Utah behind for better opportunities in more worker-friendly states with better career opportunities.

It was quite satisfying to see that Zimmerman and wife got what is coming to him. See the State AG's site to see the dirtbag's mug shot with details of his convictions. http://attorneygeneral.utah.gov/PR_081511.html

Unfortunately Stephen Zimmerman is unrepentant (the mug shot tells the story) and up to his old tricks in Kentucy where he appears. You can find a complaint under his name on this site from an individual in KY who claims Zimmerman scammed him out of a large loan. Also, Zimmerman has a Linkedin profile under an organization Hardwood Horses L.C. http://www.linkedin.com/pub/stephen-zimmerman/38/370/819

Zimmerman lists his employment history as both Paria Group and PGM but strangely omits dates of all the legal entanglements. Funny isn't it. Well, perhaps he'll scam the wrong Kentucky hillbilly and get what's coming to him via their own kind of justice. Avoid all business with this guy!

PGM Owner faces felony state tax evasion charges

AUTHOR: Deep Throat - (USA)

From the "Daily Herald" in Provo, UT: http://heraldextra.com/news/local/article_26d314cb-9f20-5c37-a332-6633b1bd5bfd.html?mode=story:

Lindon couple faces felony state tax evasion charges

Posted: Tuesday, July 27, 2010 8:48 am

A former Lindon couple faces seven felony charges of withholding more than $350,000 in payroll taxes at a business they ran in Orem.

Stephen M. Zimmerman, 57, and his wife, Carla Zimmerman, 56, were charged on Wednesday with six second-degree felony counts of communications fraud and tax evasion in Salt Lake City 3rd District Court. An additional third-degree felony of failure to file a proper tax return was also filed against the couple.

The Utah State Tax Commission investigation shows the Zimmermans owe more than $350,000 in payroll taxes, penalties and interest, spokesman Charlie Roberts said.


According to the commission, the Zimmermans operated a marketing business known as Professional Global Marketing Data Series Inc. in Orem. From December 2005 through 2008, the Zimmermans allegedly withheld payroll taxes for their employees and failed to remit these trust funds to the Tax Commission. They also allegedly submitted false W-2 tax forms on behalf of their employees which erroneously claimed that the payroll taxes had been remitted, Roberts said.


Court dates are still pending for the Zimmermans.

Attn All Ex Employees From 2007!

AUTHOR: PGMSUX - (USA)

Well after seeing one of the posts above I decided to check with the SSA about what they have me earning at this place for the years I spent working there.  And sure enough, when it comes to 2007, the social security administration says that I earned 0. 

To have this corrected there is a phone number provided on the statement to call, need to have a copy of your W2 or Tax Return information from the year that is in error.  I plan to do this next week, I'll be sure to post any information that I can find out about why this happened. 

But I STRONGLY recommend the rest of you that worked there that year do the same!  It might not matter for you now, but later on, it could mean a lot and it'll be too late to do anything about it.  The SSA will only correct "mistakes" 3 years into the past!  So before the year is out, I'd make sure to check it!

Fool Me Once...

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

Stephen Zimmerman may not have a hand in ASVA, LLC (asvaresearch.com), but David Harris does. Harris was involved in the financial dealings of both PGM, Inc and Professional Global Marketing Data Services. Both organizations were infamous for shady dealings, including not paying vendors (see original complaint here) and not paying employees. They also did the switcheroo name change to avoid debts.

ASVA, LLC (asvaresearch.com) employees are also experiencing the same issues -- late paychecks or no paycheck.

These warnings go out to all potential business vendors or employees. "Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me". Don't be fooled again by the folks that ran PGM, Inc or Professional Global Marketing Data Services: Stephen Zimmerman OR David Harris.

Expgm:  ASVA, LLC was never owned in whole or part by Stephen Zimmerman.  Are you now resorting to false statements?  Would that be called false witness?  Also are you speculating too?

Naming every incarnation of PGM under Zimmerman and the court entered a default judgement with all the names attached! So now it's on record in the court system that ties all of these companies directly to Zimmerman.

Trouble Brewing...

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

I do not know if Zimmerman is still involved with ASVA or not but I did recently find that the IRS has placed a tax lien against him to the tune of $43k and change. It would not surprise me to find that this is unpaid employee payroll taxes from one or all of his companies.

ASVA has recently posted on their website that they upgraded their phone system and had to change phone numbers. However, if you review the docket of the Utah court system you will find that recently Veracity (one of many different phone service providers the company has contracted with over the weeks) has filed a small claims case against PGMDS and Stephen Zimmerman. Doesn't sound like they "upgraded" anything but rather got booted off once Veracity discovered that it was "a different company"

In my honest opinion, I think with all the stories and comments on this report it is clear that this company has gone way beyond a simple scam and borders on, if not crosses the line to intentional fraud.

after all that, a few people got their paychecks. mostly if they were part-time and the amount was under 200 bucks. alot of us had to file with the labor commision wage claim unit. and then the last week of aug some more checks were sent out. at this point we were scheduled to have a hearing with the labor comm. the first week of sept. those of us who didn't get paid had our hearing where they admitted they owed us. now we are waiting on the court orders to go through. and now it's dec and we are still waiting. i did alot of digging when they went out of business. i wish i would have done it before. it turns out they hadn't been paying their taxes for atleast the past year and a lein was put on them by the irs. that had happend 2 weeks before they closed us down. so thanks to them trying to screw the gov. they screwed us. and once again are hiding behind another alter ego company which is still the same company. they screwed the employees out of money, other companies who worked with ours and temp agencies in our area of around 100 thousand dollars. i have no idea who else was hurt by this company and yet they are still in business with the same clients doing some of the same work. i am ashamed to say that i worked with them for as long as i have. wish us luck in seeing justice

And look at that, they all use the same PO Box number.

If PGM Inc. and Professional Global Marketing Data Services are not one in the same, they share the same PO Box? Not to mention the domains that are clearly registered under the PGM Inc. name are displaying Professional Global Marketing's information at this time with the same contact information.

It looks like they changed all their phone numbers now, but you can still get the new main line number from their website.

I know that people who are still owed money by PGM Inc. are finding that the company is closed, which is a shame because the assets of PGM Inc. were moved to Professional Global Marketing Data Services where they apparently get protection because technically it's a different company. This is a very unfortunate loophole, and who knows how many other legitimate honest businesses were destroyed because they crossed paths with these people.

AUTHOR: Anton Sevilla - (U.S.A.)

These are the people you need avoid when it comes to business dealings. They have taken most of our resources and ran away with out paying a single centavo. Upon conclusion of their foremost scam, they would again open and start a new modus to fool people and companies. The Federal Administration of Utah should investigate the dealings of this bogus institution who is claiming to be the best in the past years. Again, please avoid these people. They are now using their receptionist named Karen as front act in getting more people fooled. Don"t waste your time in dealing with them. Big time scam.

If you do end up trying to work for this company, be very careful. Not only as a vendor for the reasons listed above, but also as an employee.

They should add this to the help wanted ad as expectations for the job:

To get your paycheck late. (always blame the post office, but law says you're supposed to have the check IN HAND on the posted pay-date. Sorry, but that's what it says.)
To have a paycheck bounce when you try to cash it, or get it sucked back out of your account if you deposit it. (You'll be lucky if they reimburse your overdraft fees before you stop working there)
Get absolutely no sympathy or explanations from upper management when your check bounces or just flat out doesn't show up.
Have many time-card discrepancies.
Have many payroll discrepancies.
Not have functional equipment.

This is not a "professional" working environment by any means of the word.

This company is an alter ego of PGM, Inc! If you are owed money by PGM, Inc., note that Professional Global Marketing Data Services, LC and PGM, Inc. are ONE AND THE SAME! Same employees, same everything -- just a new name.

This is not a new tactic of the owner of the company. They did this before a few years ago, when Paria Group became PGM, Inc. (see http://wyomcases.courts.state.wy.us/applications/oscn/deliverdocument.asp?citeid=242997). This is just a tactic to escape their debt obligations! Do not be fooled!

Who is at Fault / Dragging Names through the Mud

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

I worked for said company a while back, under a different iteration/name. I was witness of the difficulties outlined by Sterling. Please note, however, that the Project Management and Marketing people are in NO WAY involved in payment of vendors. Their names have been unfairly slandered.

As the last rebuttal clarified, the CONTROLLER is the individual with the responsibility of paying vendors. Sterling is well aware of this fact. They may have reason to complain, but this broad attack, naming individuals that are not at fault is uncalled for.

Clarification

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

Just wanted to clarify one aspect of this complaint. The project managers named, Scott, Chris T., Chris L., Laura, and Shane do not have direct responsibility for payments to vendors. That is strictly handled by the Controller, David Harris. Any communications to the project managers mentioned above would have indicated that to Anton and David Harris' contact information would have been given to Anton at that time. The project managers provided Anton with the only information regarding any past due amounts they had, which is just to refer them to David Harris.

Thank you.
