I am a former (high level) employee of the company. I want to share this company's scam with everyone. I have contacted and/or met with the District Attorney's Office investigator, Better Business Bureau, FCC, and the FTC. The rest is up to them.
I did my part and I hope that Zackary Paul Fuelling (UCSB Dropout), Donald Walter Fuelling (Convicted Felon for FRAUD), Nicholas E. Fuelling (CSUS Dropout), and Adam Fuelling (owner of Cardmember Services Inc...YES! CHECK YOUR CREDIT CARD STATEMENTS FOR A CHARGE FROM DELAWARE FOR CARDMEMBER SERVICES) (All Scam Artists) are made to pay for what they have done to unsuspecting people accross the country.
I hope that the District Attorney's Office prosecutes them to the fullest extent of the law! I hope that the DA's office is coordinating its efforts with the AUSA's (AUSA = Assistant US Attorney) office as well since these crimes were committed accross state lines. I would be more than happy to testify for the prosecution.
I ran the day to day operations of the business and can attest to what the company was doing to people that were calling in search of a decent job.
I was hired as a microbiologist for Rescom Environmental, Inc. I came up with the name RESCOM. It was actually Don Fuelling Construction before this located out of 3487 Orange Grove Avenue Suite K, North Highlands, Ca 95660.
Mr. --- (percent owner of the company) (who later sued Mr. Fuelling for not getting his salary) and I along with Mr. Donald Walter Fuelling picked the NEW location for the business. I was hired by Mr. Donald Walter Fuelling (Cellular Telephone Number ---) at the direction of Zackary Paul Fuelling (Cellular Phone Number: ----) (Also a UCSB Dropout).
I was hired and was expected to work a MINIMUM of 50 hours a week (this has to be against the law). I was made to design flyers, brochures, cold call companies, and I think I went on a few dozen or so inspections and wrote reports for them. I quit after eight months of this working under these ridiculous conditions(2/2002-10/2002) and after a couple of my payroll checks bounced.
I then went and worked for a very reputable consulting nationwide consulting firm for a short time and decided it was not the place for me. I then contacted Mr. Donald Walter Fuelling (Cellular Telephone Number ----) around June, July, or August 2003 and asked if they could use a talented microbiologist on staff (I had left them under good terms at the time). Mr. Donald Walter Fuelling consulted with Zackary Paul Fuelling (Cellular Phone Number: -----) and advised me to come in and that we could work something out.
I went in and I was advised that I got the job and that they wanted me to attend their course and co teach some of the course and to help them edit, develop, and teach other courses. I did this successfully and without any problems. I was then put in charge of the microbiology department. I went out on inspections, wrote reports, etc...Again, I excelled at my job and did great.
My office was adjacent to the office of the person in charge of the sales department. I did not know that one even existed (a sales department that is). The Fuelling family is VERY Paranoid and secretive about their business (now I understand why!!!). Matt was in charge of the sales department at this time.
Brian ---- (ZACKARY's Friend from College) was in charge of customer service at this time. I often overheard him talking to Matt ---- (ZACKARY's friend and room mate from UCSB and high school) about how people were always mad about them lying to customers and people getting weird charges, not getting any jobs, etc...but this was not my responsibility and I had no knowledge of it so I had no way of confirming what exactly was going on. And like I said...the Fuellings are very secretive and do not talk much about themselves or what goes on in the company with anyone else in the company.
Then, one day I heard Matt ---- screaming and arguing with Zackary Paul Fuelling and I have not seen him again.
After this fiasco, one of the sales people from the back (the sales floor/sweat shop), Mr. Christopher ---, was promoted to Mr. ---- position as sales manager. Mr. --- was definitely a kind and good person and was a friend to me. I introduced myself to him one day because we worked early in the mornings before the boss(es) (Zackary Paul Fuelling, Donald Walter Fuelling, or Peggy Fuelling (Zackary's mom and another unwitting accomplice in this mess) came in. We hit it off and were talking about all of the BS going on.
Mr. --- told me how the people in the back were getting their commissions deducted for no good reason, people paying for courses were getting no jobs, people who bought courses were calling in irate, etc...I felt extremely sorry for him. The poor guy did not last too long. He actively sought alternate employment and then got a job with a local Wells Fargo Customer Service Call Center. I have not since heard from Mr. --- and I hope that he is doing well.
I was always a little suspicious of what was going on at rescom: 4608 Roseville Road Suite 105 North Highlands, Ca 95660. But I could not place my finger on what it was. I did not have enough evidence of anyhting bad going on other than hearsay through others. I was told by the fuellings that the people that took our courses were working and that jobs were available. I was also told that Christopher --- was a "FIEND" (whatever that means in the context in which it was used) and the Matt ---- had gone back to Santa Barbara.
I was then approached by Zackary Paul and Donald Walter Fuelling to be the general manager of the business and to run the sales department and be responsible for the microbiology department, writing reports, and conducting inspections along with any other necessary tasks as assigned by Donald, Zackary, Adam, Nick, or Peggy.
I accepted the elevated position of authority and made it a personal challenge to myself to make sure that I did the best that I could to make this a successful endeavor. I haggled with Zackary Paul Fuelling and got him to reduce the course price from $517.95 ($100 down, $139.22 per month for three months plus shipping) down to $260. Mr. Fuelling then raised the price to $290 where it has stayed steady.
I then raised sales from 10-20 per week on average to 100-120 course sales per week by making sure that I hired competent staff, trained my staff in sales, and gave my people bonuses (with Zackary Paul's approval after much haggling of course) for making the sales.
I started to get suspicious about what was going on because I started getting my sales people coming into my office and letting me know about people calling in saying that their people were calling them and telling them that they finished all of the procedures and steps but they were never sent out on jobs. They also said that there were employment ads placed in their area even after they were said to be hired.
Whenever I would approach Mr. Zack Fuelling with my concerns, he brushed me off and told me that no one ever completed the coursework (his 17 year old girlfriend Sara ---- grades the exams) and that people did not get their paperwork in (Peggy Fuelling was in charge of the paperwork). Whatever, I did my job as assigned. I lost more and more faith in the company with each passing day and with each passing minute.
I cared for my employees and for the people to whom they sold the coursework. Luckily, people could still use the coursework to get a job on their own. But again, it is up to each employer whether or not they want to accept the AABIE credentials. The courses are good courses. But people did not sign up to start their own businesses. They call about a help wanted advertisement in the newspaper.
I also want to add that I noticed that people were getting weekly charges to their credit card accounts for different amounts. There were charges of $15 per month (During ---- Stint), $9.50 per week (During My Stint and ongoing), $8.74 per week (During Christopher ---- Stint and mine and was ongoing in some accounts), $38 per month (during my stint and ongoing), $150 lifetime (during My stint and ongoing), and $6 per week or $4.50 per week through cardmember services, inc. (Adam Fuelling's fake company)(I found out about this by total mistake through a statement of a customer. It had Adam Fuelling's cell phone number on it).
Upon further investigation, I approached Adam Fuelling (cellular phone number ----). He advised that it was all Zackary's idea and that he decided to implement it with Zackary's blessing. He arbitrarily charged thousands of cards for a $4.50 or $6 charge...unbekown to anyone...myself included!!!I approached Zackary and he said that it was not something they knew anything about...he denied it.
He went so far as to make an *&*& of himself by showing me a letter from American Express where it said cardmember services on the letter. I was laughing so hysterically that I think he knew that I knew it was BS. I then added in, "well then...how is Adam's cell phone number[cellular phone number ----]on this customer's statement?" He left my office as he was mumbling...I will have to look into that. He did not approached me about it again.
When the charges above ($8.74, $9.50, $15.00, $38.00) were noticed by customers and people called in, I was also told by Zackary Paul, that all of the above charges were for membership to the AABIE. That was news to me. He said that he will make it more clear to people by placing a disclaimer page on the website. I disagreed with him to the point of all frustration as there was no kind of disclosure about anything to anyone before this.
I wanted our customers to be able to get refunds for the charges made previous to any disclosure. Even with the disclosure statement, it was on the website. All sales were made via telephone. I was so angry with the Fuellings for this!!!
The last straw came for me when we had a week off 12/19/2005 to 12/26/2005 (sales staff and myself and the receptionist (my spouse). When we came back, there were hundreds of calls coming in daily about daily charges to peoples' accounts, so much so that Zackary assigned a salesperson Jennifer --- to handle nothing but these calls. This is not because he wanted the issues resolved but so that the sales people could concentrate on selling and to keep their morale elevated.
He just delayed things. He told Jennifer and I to fill out forms with which he did nothing. He just let them sit.
Finally, this site, ripoff reports had Ms. Monique ---- report along with Ms. Deanna ---. Ms. --- and Ms. ---- do embellish a little teeny tiny bit about me and my wife and our material possessions. I worked and paid for my vehicles and home way before I got a job with Rescom and the Fuellings (SCAM ARTISTS).
It is my honor and pleasure to be able to give my spouse the vehicles and home which she enjoys and I hope all of you can be as fortunate. I have advanced degrees and certifications that have taken me years and years to accumulate and thousands of dollars to pay for. I have attained all that I have through honest and hard work. At times I held three jobs and paid for school. Just as I have two jobs now to make ends meet. I am no stranger to hard work. I just want everyone to understand that I did not get anything handed to me and I did not get anything from the Fuellings other than my salary.
By the way, the Fuellings actually did not even give my wife her last paycheck!!!! Still the scam artists they are. But I expected this and was ready for it. Also, John, I am not Tom ---.
Let us see what the Fuellings got:
Since starting this whole rescom education and job thing, Zackary, Donald, Nicholas, Peggy, and Adam Fuelling have bought three to four homes in exclusive neighborhoods in Fair Oaks and remodeled them (one may be in Nicholas'name). Donald used to be a realtor until he got sued and got a felony conviction.
Adam Fuelling has bought a fully loaded Nissan 350Z in addition to his Jetta (he is currently trying to scam his insurance company and volkswagen in order to get a new jetta or a lemon buyback), Zackary and Don have both bought Identical Brand New Fully Loaded F150 Ford Trucks from Elk Grove Ford. I am sure that they have many other things that I am unaware of.
Understand this....this is only the tip of the iceberg. This is only what I am aware of! There are many more bones buried.
After all of this, they can't afford workers compensation insurance!! I just heard that a long time friend and Vietnam War Veteran Myrl --- was working construction for the Fuellings at a job site and chopped the tip of his finger off. He is now stuck paying for the costs on his own from what I have heard. He is doing OK and is in recovery. I wish him the best!
I have opened the closet door and shined the flashlight...now let these cockroaches...I mean the Fuellings scatter about!
Zackary...what goes around comes around. Karma is a *&*&*&!!! I hope you get yours...Wait a minute. ME, the DA, and the AUSA are on it and I am sure you are going to go down in flames! By the way, Adam's little Ipod (lol) 40Gig Hard drive that was misplaced...the DA has it now! You are done pal!!! You are a criminal and you are going down! I hope that I see it on TV when they arrest you guys. You are the worst type of criminal offender...the con man! Watch your cornhole bubba!
To everyone ResCON Scammed! I am so truly sorry that you underwent this terrible ordeal! I had no idea that the jobs were not real. The fuellings kept everyone in the dark. They only gave very limited info to us. Just enough to keep us doing our jobs.
One last note. ONLY ADAM FUELLING AND ZACKARY FUELLING CHARGED CARDS FOR ANY FEES. They went through a company called authorize on the internet. Their account was canceled due to too many chargebacks. Mr. Sam --- with Authorize can give more info also about this company REs-SCAM!
Good luck to all!! ...Except the Fuellings!
Ed, sorry this is really long but I want the complete picture out there for everyone to see! You can link this to the other reports so that people can see this REAL REPORT. THIS IS BEYOND REPROACH! NO ONE CAN POST A REBUTTAL TO THIS!
The only thing Zack will do is act as JIM or whomever and say that I am a disgruntled ex employee! Well, ZACK! Good luck with that. You can not rebut the truth *&*&-eyes!
