Tradebank International is once again continuing with its lies and seemingly entitlement of others work profits for their own personal agenda/s and gain. Why would a company reinstate a fired employee of one of its regional owners the same day they were fired and cancel the franchise without any notice written or otherwise by that afternoon? Why would they give reasons of “low sales” when said franchise was third in the nation a few months earlier? Why would they cancel a franchise in the middle of its sale to a cluster of investors and carry on with business as usual if in fact the franchise is closed/cancelled?

 John Davis personally sanctioned an unfit person (fired employee) to “facilitate” the sale of the business which to date has only facilitated the employee’s own agenda as the new “owner” or boss and sale of the business is at an impasse. Phone calls and e-mails are left unanswered and to date nothing as promised (as in accordance with franchise agreement) in writing has been delivered. The person he left in “charge” has many character flaws that as Davis himself said “nothing short of a bullet between the eyes would help.” Having confiscated business phone and computer hard drives with incriminating evidence to employee’s ability to undermine the business, its owners, and the clients, Mr. Davis is less than forthcoming with correcting the situation. The list includes evidence of favoritism, felony, slander, and a litany of other misdoings and liabilities that doesn’t seem to bother Tradebank International or John Davis as he WAS presented with the evidence. Let’s remember too, the outright inability for the employee to follow the FOUNDER’S directives/orders which were cause for the decline of client trust, communications that were not sanctioned or in the best interest of anyone and used as a smear campaign to try and make themselves look exceptional in terms of a desirable successor.

 The fact that said employee touts their expertise as a paralegal and “had no idea” that a sale of a business includes having to change the name legally, monies collected would need an escrow account, and general assets would need to be in compliance with state and local business practices absolutely brings up the question of exactly why John Davis would allow such incompetence to remain in the business at all.. The lack of knowledge governing a franchise was painfully evident and overlooked by John Davis in this employee's outgoing communications to the Tradebank network. That the employee outright LIED about checks in hand from investors to franchisee and subsequently John Davis himself and was “wrought with stress” from dealing with "everything" further begs the answer as to WHY employee is still at a cancelled franchise doing “business as usual.”

 According to other regional owners of Tradebank franchises and friends with said owner of this particular franchise, John Davis, on a company conference call, told them that said owner was paid in full. Sooooo……Where’s the money? Not where it belongs!

 To date a residual payment from September that is still owed has not been paid and is now lying unpaid as the accountant was in Las Vegas for a convention (hmmmnnn…), calls to be returned have not been returned and now it’s Christmas…then it’ll be New Year’s and the check to be cut will have cobwebs and won’t be able to get processed. It’s a blatant attempt to thwart the former owner into submission by “starving him out.”

 Tradebank International and John Davis are having a time of it in courts recently and monies/properties are seemingly usurped by the corporate office in favor of unlawful enrichment to support their coffers. While this may not be the case it certainly gives one pause as to their erroneous acts and very hostile takeovers. 

 If anyone has information or the ability to stop the unbelievable audacity of this company in its unscrupulous tactics of ousting its franchisee owners from the lawful monies due them PLEASE feel free to comment here!

The REAL truth

AUTHOR: The REAL truth - ()

First off, Brian Smith, former Regional Owner of Tradebank of Greenville offered Tradebank for sale and had several interested parties. When the different parties interested in buying found out that the price he offered was different for each buyer, offers were pulled. That is when Brian asked his employee to facilitate the sale of Tradebank. She was in the process of speaking to an attorney to get the LLC and name change, get monies from investors and take care of the legal issues in changing from one owner to another. During this time, Brian CONSTANTLY harrased employees and investors with "where's the money", would come to her office and say she wasnt working fast enough to get the money. ON top of this, she was not fired, but told  that "since she quit", he came to her home, entered her house without being inviting  in and took her phone. He has hacked into his ex employees facebook page as well as email, and has all her personal information that he refuses to give back. He has slandered his ex employee to many clients as to her reputation, clients who are willing to testify to this. Brian constantly sexually harrassed, not only the current broker, but every broker that has ever had work for him. Brian's game is to always see how he can "ONE UP' on someone else. HE wanted to sell Tradebank and John Davis stepped in due to the things Brian was doing that was hurting Tradebank's reputation. It's a fact that Brian left Tradebank owing cash and Trade dollars, if anything, Brian owes Tradebank money. Brians broker did not take any money from Brian, and didnt do this to screw him out of anything, she was actually trying to assist him in selling it.  Brian shot himself in the foot by his own actions and it's time that he took responsiblity. If he had acted with entegrity and let the sale happen without harrassing and badgering the buyers or employees, he would not be in this mess. He wanted to sell tradebank and branch into another "venture" as he put it. Brian was seen as lazy and had an I DONT CARE attitude with the business.  He is vengeful because he could not ONE UP Tradebank, as he is fond of doing. Tradebank of Greenville has shown more growth since Brian left than in the entire time he was Regional Owner. So to say he left Tradebank in someone's hands who is unfit, is slanderous and libelous. Please take caution with dealing with Brian Smith, HE is the one who takes advantage of others and everything is always about "the money." The fact that Brian "confiscated" (stole) the information from a company that he was no longer an owner of, shows his lack of ethics and that he will do anything he can to make his side of the story look like the truth.
