These people advertise on craigslist under the employment sales categories they do a go-to-meeting online webinar with job seekers who are interested in working from home. Bruce Piazza conducts the meeting. During the meeting Bruce Piazza introduces the company as a credit card merchant services company who are looking for sales people to work from home then he gives the option to own part of the business or just work under him. He mentions that owning part of the business is gonna cost 500.00, while working under him would cost nothing but does'nt pay as much and that there is alot of money to be made in either case. He then goes on to explain the commision structure but also assures that he does pay a base of 150.00 but that is only as long as 600 calls per day are made iand this is in addition a commision compensation plan as well. So, I began to make calls for Bruce Piazza to start off i was told by Bruce Piazza that i would have to download and sign up for yahoo instant messenger and add him as a friend there along with his assistant Laura Huff. My job was to make cold calls to new business owners. I learned quickly that most of the business owners on the list were sick and tired of being called over and over again by companies like Sales Team USA trying to sell them a credit card machine or merchant services when they are perfectly happy with the current electronic payment set up that they got from their bank. Most people begged me to put them on the do not call list. Whenever, I was blessed enough to find the few and far between people who was nice enough to not bite my head off, slam the phone down on me as soon as i said the words do you accept credit cards, or beg me to stop calling them and if i was able to get that far into the pitch where there was even a shred of interest, my job then was to quickly instant message the prospect's contact info over the Laura Huff. Laura sits online all day waiting for leads like this to come through because her job is to call them and try to sell them the services. Laura would call my leads but she would never give me an update i wanted to keep track of my sales especially after all the effort that i had to put into getting a lead. Laura began to lie to me about what she had gotten from me and said that she only got one of 2 leads from me in a week when i knew it was more like 10. Luckily for me i had kept good records but later both her and bruce dismissed my leads by telling none of the leads i had send over were interested in the services. After working for a couple more weeks i began to ask about the 150 a week base pay. Whenever i would instant message Bruce Piazza about my pay he would simply ignore me. But whenever i would instant message him about an interested prospect I would get a quick response. He chose to ignore me as long as i was asking about my pay check. I worked yet another week for these people at which point i began to call bruce about my pay, rather than instant message him since that proved to be useless. He would somtimes answer and say who is this i'll call you right back, but he would never called back. It went on like this for weeks. Then finally after calling him from an anonymous number repeatedly, he finally responded to me by telling me that what he wants to do with me is to have me own my own merchant account business. I then told him that i did not have the 500 dollars to invest. This was when he said " I never said anything about 500 dollars" and then he went on to say "dont worry I'll call you back about this because i can get you started for 59 dollars a month you will be doing the same thing i do. You can buy your call list and hire people to make calls for you. Then he said i'll call you back about this and he rushed off the phone and, of course he did not call back. Whenever i call him now to ask about the 150 a week money that he's oweing me he simply hangs up the phone on me. Do yourself a favor do not work for these people this is a carefully constructed scam to get 500 dollars out of job seekers.
