Hi!!!..My name is Frank and 30+ people and I have been victimized by Terrance Grandberry, Nathaniel Douglas, American Financial Strategies USA and TR Global.  I started working for American Financial Strategies September 8, 2009.  Terrance Grandberry and Nathaniel Douglas were recruiting at the Texas Workforce Solutions Greater Dallas, when I applied for the position of working in a call center selling services of credit and financial planning. I started work immediately. He requested that we pay $40 for a background check. Mr. Grandberry stated that I would get paid on the fifth of every month at $850 per week plus bonuses.


After working for Mr. Grandberry for a week, he offered an opportunity to invest in the company for a $1250.00 buy in; This was for a limited partnership in the company of TR GLOBAL. He only offered this opportunity for  a short time. He drew up paperwork for the investment opportunity for me to review. On the very next week me and 6 others invested in this opportunity. Went to work for Mr.Grandberry for about 3 weeks, and something didn't set right with me or my co-workers, so we asked for a refund due to not liking the deal. He stated that he would refund our investment money($1250)and also we would get our paychecks the following week. Payday rolled around on October 5, 2009 and Nathaniel Douglas stated that he was going to his license had expired. Therefore, he stated that he was unable to pay employees.  Terrance Grandberry and Nathaniel Douglas wrote a memo saying that they would pay all employees on October 21, 2009.  However, pay day rolled around again and they informed us that there was now a problem with payroll. Then on a Thursday the Dallas Police Dept came to the office and requested paperwork from Mr.Grandberry and Mr. Douglas and after further research we found out that he was running a Internet Adult Website. That's when all the employees begin to request their money and paychecks for the two gentleman. He stated that he was going to refund all the investment money and paychecks. When me and other employees showed up to work we were surprised due to the office being closed and was told that an emergency came up and would be there the next week. The following week came and that Monday Feb,1 2010 he was gone and the office had Notice to Vacate on the door. 


Not only was I conned out of $40.00(background check) + $1250.00(Investment) + $3000.00(paycheck), but he also conned about 30 other people out of theirs.


After doing some research on Mr. Terrance Grandberry I found that Mr. Grandberry had been going from Omaha, Nebraska, Las Vegas, Nevada and Dekalb County, Ga and now in Dallas, Texas recruiting employees and not paying them. He also recruits models(men & women)for photo shoots or modeling jobs that are bogus as well. I have spoken to a few models as well. I was informed that he gets women and men to spend a minimum of $50 deposit for the photo shoots and then additional money to go to these jobs that are bogus and he takes off with the money


FYI...Terrance Grandberry, Nathaniel Douglas,  and American Financial Strategies is all a FRAUD.  IT's a scam and beware. I have a website from WSBTV where they did a news investigation on Terrance Grandberry not paying his employees in Georgia. (www.wsbtv.com/video/1496873/index.html.)  This is not the first time this has happened and I'm sure it will not be the last.  So let's nip this in the bud.  Beware.  Terrance Grandberry keeps changing the name of the companies to avoid getting caught.  The last name he used for the company was TWG Financial Inc.



*****Also beware of Grand Entertainment World.****  Terrance Grandberry is the owner.  Terrance Grandberry claims that he is 40 but he was born in November of 1963.  Beware, they are liars and con-artists.  They are skilled at what they do and give you just enough information to believe that they are legitimate.

SOUNDS LIKE A NIGERIAN SCAM WITH AN AMERICAN FLAVAH

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

THIS GUY WAS EXPECTING PEOPLE TO PAY HIM TO WORK FOR HIM.

HOW STUPID CAN SOMEBODY BE.

AND HOW STUPID WAS THE TEXAS WORKSOURCE TO LET THIS SCUM OF A CON MAN RECRUIT PEOPLE WHO BADLY NEEDED WORK FROM THEIR OFFICE. MAYBE HE BRIBED SOMEBODY. THOSE STATE EMPLOYEES OR EMPLOYEES OF AGENCIES CONTRACTED BY THE STATE TO RUN THOSE WORKFORCE CENTERS DO NOT MAKE MUCH MONEY SO A BRIBE WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE FOR THEM AND BAD FOR YOU.

HERE IT IS, YOU HAVE NOT EVEN HAD YOUR FIRST PAYCHECK AND YOU HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS CALL CENTER IS GOING TO WORK OUT. YOU HAVE ONLY WORKED FOR THIS GUY FOR A WEEK AND HE IS SUPPOSED TO PAY YOU ALL OF THIS BIG MONEY AND PROBABLY YOU HAVEN'T GOTTEN YOUR FIRST CHECK YET..AND HE WANTS YOU TO INVEST INTO HIS BUSINESS FOR MORE THAN HE IS GOING TO PAY YOU.

AND YOU DIDN'T STOP AND THINK AND ASK WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE?

SOME OPPORTUNITY THIS WAS.

HOW CAN THIS MAN POSSIBLY ASK YOU TO INVEST MONEY WHEN YOU DO NOT HAVE ANY MONEY IN THE FIRST PLACE?

FIRST, YOU GOT SCAMMED INTO HAVING A BACKGROUND CHECK WHICH HE PROBABLY NEVER DID AND WOULD HAVE COST HIM $20 AT DPS IF HE HAD IT DONE.

LET US SAY YOU DID INVEST AND THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN NEARLY TWO PAY PERIODS. YOU WOULD HAVE GOTTEN   $450 ON YOUR SECOND PAY CHECK. SO HOW ARE YOU EXPECTED TO GET BY WITH NO PAYCHECK FOR A WHOLE MONTH?

BASIC COMMON SENSE QUESTIONS ANYONE SHOULD HAVE ASKED.

I WOULD HAVE TOLD HIM I WAS THERE TO MAKE MONEY NOT GIVE HIM MONEY AND I WOULD HAVE WALKED OUT.

FOR HIM TO HAVE OWED YOU $3,000 IN BACK WAGES AN D YOU NEVER GOT A DIME!
HOW IN THE HELL WERE YOU GETTING BY WITH NO PAYCHECK. THAT DOES NOT MAKE SENSE.

THIS SOUNDS LIKE SOME SORT OF GOOFY NIGERIAN SCAM.

IF I DID NOT OPT INTO INVESTING IN HIS COMPANY AND HAD WORKED FOR HIM A MONTH AND HE DIDN'T PAY ME, I WOULD HAVE CALLED THE PAYDAY LAW NUMBER AT THE TEXAS WORKSOURCE AND I WOULD HAVE HAD HIS ASSETS FROZEN UNTIL I COLLECTED MY CHECK AND THEN I WOULD HAVE BEEN GONE.

NOW HE HAS INFORMATION ON EVERYBODY WHO FELL FOR HIS SCHEME --ENOUGH TO STEAL YOUR IDENTITIES!

HAS ANYBODY REPORTED THIS CHEAP FLIM FLAM MAN AND HIS BOYFRIEND TO THE FBI?

YOU SHOULD HAVE.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

We had warned you

AUTHOR: momo2010 - (United States of America)

I worked for this company in the beginning of Sept. Me and another promotional girl walked into the office asking to be compensated in the beginning of Oct and Nathaniel laid his hands on us pushing us out of his office. There was about 15 people in the main lobby area and NO ONE in the office bothered to help us and were blaming us for being there. We warned everyone there they were scamming and you still stuck around. We called the cops and still everyone there did not defend us. When in doubt next time and see someone in harm do something about it. You had doubts and should of left along time ago.
