I AM A 24 YEAR OLD FATHER OF TWO. I WAS RECENTLY LAID OFF AND I WAS LOOKING FOR WORK, I CAME ACROSS AN AD IN THE PAPER FOR SOMETHING THAT SAID "REDBULL". AND PROMISED 500+ A WEEK IN AN UPBEAT ENVIRONMENT. I CALLED, WENT IN FOR AN INTERVIEW WITH A MAN NAMED ROB ZUCKERT. I WAS THEN TOLD TO GO HOME WAIT FOR A CALL AN HOUR LATER. I GOT THE CALL AND WENT IN THE NEXT DAY FOR A SECOND INTERVIEW. WEHN I GOT THERE THEY WERE PLAYING THIS CRAPPY BULLS**T HIP HOP GARBAGE, AND EVERYONE SEEMED TO BE JACKED ON COKE, I THOUGHT PEOPLE WERE GOING TO START DOING BACK FLIPS IT WAS SO UPBEAT. I ENTERED A ROOM FILLED WITH 30+ PEOPLE AND IMMEDIATLY SMELLED BULLS**T AND EVIL. I NEVER IN MY LIFE BEEN TO A SECOND INTERVIEW WITH 30 PEOPLE AROUND WHOM WERE THERE FOR THE SAME INTERVIEW. A FEW MINUTES LATER AND ROB ZUCKERT, A SO CALLED MILLIONAIRE CAME IN THE ROOM PREACHING LIKE SOME WASHED UP TELEMARKETING SAP YOU SEE ON LATE NIGHT LOW BUDGET TV. HE WAS TALKING ABOUT SOME A** CLOWN LARRY HAHN, THEN GAVE US THE IN'S AND THE OUT'S OF THE COMPANY CALLED SCENTURA CREATIONS AND TOLD US WE WOULD BE IN A 5 WEEK TRAINING PROGRAM FOR A BRANCH MANAGER POSITION AT OUR OWN OFFICE IN A SELECT AREA OF CHICAGO LAND. AFTER SEVERAL HOURS OF LISTENING TO THIS HORSE HOCKEY FROM ROB AND THIS OTHER LITTLE B**ITCH OF A MAN WITH GLASSES WHOM TALKED LIKE A GAY VERSION OF QUINTEN TARINTINO HYPED UP ON CRACK AND DIET PEPSI, I FIGURED I WOULD COME BACK THE NEXT DAY JUST TO SEE WHAT KIND OF FLYING BULLS**T THEY COULD FEED ME NEXT. THE NEXT DAY WAS JUST THE SAME, LOUD CRAPPY MUSIC, CHEAP SMELLING PERFUME AND THE PURE FACT THAT EVERYONE WAS BUYING INTO THIS S**T WAS JUST AMAZING, I LOOKED AROUND THE ROOM AND EVERYONE LOOKED LIKE SHEEP PLUGGED INTO A LARGE BULLS**T FEEDING MACHINE. IT WAS PURELY RIDICULOUS, YOUR NOTES SUCKED, YOUR BULLSHIT ATTITUDE CHECKS MADE EVERYONE LOOK LIKE MICHAEL JACKSON WITH PALSY AND YOU WILL SUFFER IN THE END, KARMA IS A B**CH, ROB AND RICKI ZUCKERT AND THE REST OF YOU SO CALLED SUCCESSFULL A**HOLES WILL ROT IN HELL, YOU ARE ALL EVIL PEOPLE, SUCCESS COMES WITH GOODNESS, NOT BY STEALING PEOPLES TIME AND MONEY, YOU F**KING VAPIRE C**K SUCKERS, I REPORTED YOUR A**ES TO THE BBB ALL OVER THE PLACE AND YOU WILL SOON BE POOR.

CWA is a scam

AUTHOR: jayrush - (United States of America)

Im not sorry to say this but i worked for them in April of 2008 and they got me good i was 18 at the time and i was working at white castle. I was helping my friend look for a job and i was also looking for a second job and i came across the add in the news paper i called and set up an appointment for an interview for me, him my girl friend wanted to try it out and my other friend. so we all went they interviewed us two at a time and took me and my friend not my girl friend or my other friend so i was excited cause i didn't know any better so anyways we went to the interview they told us a little bit about it. Now i asked some questions cause i wanted to make sure i got everything i asked them if we would be selling anything they told me no witch was a big plus to me cause i cant sell anything. well anyways we went in for a orientation i believe it was and there was about 20 people there. now i still had a job at white castle and even though i was only making 280 a week i was 18 years old that was enough for me and i was working on my second raise there. they told us that if we had another job we would have to quit it other wise we couldn't work for them and they were talking about how much money you could make i didn't want to pass it up so i went to white castle and i told them i found another job and that i could not work there anymore so i quit. after i quit we went back the next day them SOBs gave us a list told us to see how much we could promote. i was a little pissed but they said this was a one time thing next day they sent us with boxes of perfume and told us to go sell it. I was pissed not only did i quit one of the best jobs i have had but i was scammed they told me i would not be selling anything when i asked about it they told me its not selling your promoting then they wanted me to lie to people saying we just came from a perfume show and had bottles left. that was bullshit. than if people were allergic to it they said tell people it is hypoallergenic i was not willing to lie to people or kill them so i dropped the box off and left and to this day i am so pissed at myself for not looking into this messed up company cause i would still be working at white castle making 500 dollars a week if i would have gave it 2 more days so what ever you do. Dont fall for it at all if i could sue oh they would shove that perfume up there ass. Call me a lier i know were you work bitches i will ruin you

Rob & Ricky are con artist!

AUTHOR: Cardo - (USA)

Rob & Ricky, Larry, Jen, Bart, and all of the other "business owners" who have no last name are complete RIP-OFF ARTIST. They should be ashamed of the way they prey on the young to get rich. They lie about what you are getting paid, they lie about how much u get paid, they lie about what you have to do to get paid, and they about lie about what you have to do to get paid!

This is too funny.. and sad.

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

I don't really know why I started looking for things about Rob and Ricki this morning.. maybe because I hoped to find that they had become better people since "DI".. but alas, they have not. They're still covering their bullshit with more bullshit. Luckily, I got my eyes opened early and I only got scammed for a few months before I figured it out, ruined a "satellite," and went home. Life is hard enough without having to put up with crap like that. It's very hard not to get drawn into their world.. where they then try to convince you that everyone else is wrong and they're right.. I remember one uplifting Rob speech in which he said (and I quote) "Fuck your parents." Well, at 19, that sounded great.. but now, 7 years later, I feel stupid that I didn't see them for what they were at the time. You left Birmingham because you had worn out your welcome here and thank God.. I just feel bad for your new host.. because you really are like parasites. You move to a new place, suck up all the resources, and then move on. It's really pathetic and down right sad. However, Karma is real and I feel really bad for you when all this comes back around.

People looking to see if these people are for real: Trust me, they're not. It took me $1700 and 2 months to figure it out.. and I'm sure that's on the low end of what people have wasted on them. Do what I did and go back to school and get yours the right way.. then you can sleep at night.. I don't know how they do, really.. and the worst part is that they brought a child into it.

Lets be truthful!

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

The only "C and T'' from my organization that was shipped by our supplier was a couple that was actually a promotion of a promotion that we took a professional interest in. They were certainly not in their youthful teens or early 20's, but a much more mature late 20's and "C"(Chris) was perhaps in his early30's. We were introduced to you by my promotion and you two(Trudy, your partner) asked if we would take you both under our guidance to help you develop better. The reasons you were no longer being shipped by our supplier was of no decision by us, but, by your own decision, which was a disasterous decision. You STOLE MERCHANDISE FROM THE COMPANY!

But regardless, the two of you were very improvisational and certainly manipulated things that you learned from many successful owners to benefit you and not necessarily to the benefit of the people you recruited. But thank you for the wonderful testimonial. Yes, you did get open into your business and were free to control the way you ran that business. You had the freedom to make any and all the decisions that you wanted to enable you to run your business as you and your partner saw fit. Unfortunately, during this time, the 2 of you were also very dysfunctional with each other. I was fairly certain that the two of you did not stay together personally. Yes, at that time we lived in the first home, which we had built after only 5 years in the co. in a fabulous golf community in Hoover, AL. As a matter of fact, at a time when we took you guys into our home to try to help you two personally, Chris had the crazy idea of ironing his shirt directly on our berber carpet and ended up melting the threads. Nice to hear from you guys! Hope all is well in your lives. The actual reason we left Birmingham is because we felt we had outgrown the smallish city we lived in and because we weren't from there, it was an easy move to make. We had a daughter who was, at the time, 3.5 years old, who had no contact with cousins, uncles, aunts, etc... Because the companies we run, we actually own, we can move those operations anywhere we choose. Why you would comment on our move is ridiculous to me as you had burned the supplier 8 or 9 years before that and were long gone and hiding from the company. Our reputation in B'Ham is awesome. When we moved from there, we turned our office over to someone who was going through a tough personal time in her life from splitting up with her boyfriend and was looking to move to a situation that she could find comfort in. We still maintain a wonderful relationship with the bank we did business with, our favorite restaurants, the owners of my favorite clothing store, who, by the way, would never stoop to selling "DKNY" clothing .

Also, the young man that I influenced to follow his dream of owning his own audio/video co. When we moved into our new home on 1395 Lake Trace Ln. in Hoover(go to zillow.com and locate that home), we hired him to do one of his very first jobs, which was over $100,000. He, today is the best audio/video co. in "The 'Ham" and now has two other locations, one in the Gulf Coast of FL. and one in Nashville. We also have maintained wonderful relationships with many people we met in B'ham through professional and personal. One of our girls just had a new baby at the beginning of February. You are correct, people do get educated very quickly when working with us. Thats the point of going through the training process. And we continue to work with them long into their ownership years. As a matter of fact, the young "pock marked face, spikey haired bullshitter" named Denny has been with us for about 16 years. He has an awesome girlfriend named Isis, who we recruited through a local ad for the opportunity. They have a killer 4000 sq. ft. home in Charlotte and a wonderful family. They always are listed as one of the top 15 offices in the co. They just bought an Infinity G. By the way, HOW ARE YOU DOING? After all these years, still just surfing the web and authoring MISLEADING testimonials about people that must be so far, FAR in your rearview mirror? By the way, how would we be devastating peoples lives and their bank accounts. Don't we each contol our own lives and the decisions we make about ourselves? How did we have anything to do with anyone's checkbook? or bank accounts? Your accounts would be in your name and you would have full control of those accounts. as a matter of fact, you were not even operating in the same city as us. Did we influence you to steal the companies inventory? Do you remember telling the story all the time in your "southern drawl" of how Trudy was making you late for your office in Greenville/Spartanburg, SC and she came running out with her breakfast bars and she tripped and the bars went flying one way and she went flying the other and you were sitting in the car watching this happen and you went, "GOLLL DAMN, TRUDY". Kerry, our Divisional Manager, who by the way has been in the business now for 29 years, LOVES that story to this day! Thanks for reconnecting with us. It's fun reliving some funny moments with you guys.

Rob and Ricki Zuckert have no ethics or concience!

AUTHOR: C&t - (U.S.A.)

I worked for Rob and Ricki Zuckert back during 95-98 time frame when they were in Birmingham Alabama. Back then their right hand guy was named Denny Mulhern, a non stop bulshitter with a pock marked face and spikey blonde hair.

I invested over 2 years of my life with them before I finally had enough of the misleading scripted way they did business. I remember Rob telling me once that I needed to leave myself a "trapdoor" when I answered peoples questions. He encouraged me and my partner to mislead them to keep them selling the merchandise. Then later when the new young people started to get wise to the misleading lies, the trapdoor strategy allowed a person who gave the interview to claim that the new person had simply comprehended what was said the wrong way, however they actually meant to mislead people to keep them selling product for as long as possible.

Rob and Ricky have no conscience whatsoever when misleading people down this road. All they cared about back then was making the payment on their Mercedes and their house located in an affluent part of town called Greystone. I remember they liked to wear a lot of Donna Karen clothing to try and impress their newest victims.

They finally accumulated such a horrible reputation over several years in Birmingham that the company told them they just needed to get out of the state of Alabama and move away so they could continue to recruit new victims in a fresh territory.

They claim this isn't a pyramid scheme, but if the people below them don't sell any product, they don't make any money. Doesn't take a genius to figure out what it's really all about. The very first thing they do is teach you how to lie to people to sell fake perfume on the street.

Rob and Ricki Zuckert have left a trail of people with devastated lives and bank accounts. People who trusted them, who are no doubt now jaded and find it hard to trust anyone.

They particularly prey on the young, because the young tend to be naive and trusting. However, they get educated very quickly when dealing with the Zuckerts.

Glad you took the time...

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

I've always found these 'reports' to be amusing, to say the least. In part, because I know the truth. But, mostly, because the truth is right in front of you! Why are there lists of HUNDREDS of offices committing these so-called 'offenses'?

If the company is a scam, then where do the people come from that open, manage, and maintain these offices? How are 18-25 year olds able to recruit average people and then train are able to train them in skills of marketing, management, and administration...if they weren't required to go through training just like you were accepted to do? I say "you" because the only people that read these are those who are offered the opporunity.

Rather than admitting to yourself that the work is harder than what you are willing, or it's too much responsibility, you would rather bash the people who were able to handle it. The people that I know in the business are some of the most generous and selfless people that I've ever associated with. To see their names disgraced is disgusting. Look up the largest businesses in the world...the places you go to buy your groceries or housewares...see how many people think Wal-Mart is a scam. I guess the higher up the pole you are, the more your butt shows. To the future business owners, CONGRATULATIONS on your independance!
