First of all I should have started my search for a telemarekting company on the internet, had I done this I would have found out that Strategicmarketingus.com is Scottsdale and its owner Darren Paulson are a total SCAM!
You dont have to take my word for it, read below and then you decide for yourself.
They had us send them a check for almost $1000 Fed Ex to an address that we later found out is nothing more than a rented mailbox at an executive suite in Scottsdale Arizona, Visionoffices.com. They dont even have an office there the person answering the phones forwarded us to the leasing office and they gave us this info. Check for yourself, go to the website and look at the location, the adddress matches that of Strategic Marketing.
Darren Paulson talks a good game but then once he cashes your check he hides behind voice mail and will never return a call. Every once in a while we would get an email with excuses! But again delivered absolutely nothing!
To date they have done not one thing he said they would do. This seems to be a pattern for Strategic Marketing. We found them on a Vendor quoting site and the company that reffered them to us is also investiging them due to numerous complaints.
Had we just checked the bbb.org for the state of Arizona that would have given us all the info we needed and saved us $1000.00 They have an UNSATISFACTORY rating with the Better Business Bureau, 9 complaints since February of this year alone! This can be verified by calling going online or calling the bbb directly.
One thing is clear we werent the first ones to be completely scammed by Darren Paulson and StrategicMarketingus.com and probably not the last.
I have noticed that Darren Paulson has responeded to some of these in fact ex employees are now on rip off report claiming what we all knew all along that this company is nothing more than a SCAM!
Its really not hard to do business the right way Darren. But you will probably have to spend some time in prison before you figure that out.
Darren, you have not heard the last from us or all of the others you have ripped off!
