Recieved an email from this 'company' on 7/05/10 stating a confirmation for a Corporate Office Interview with a date and time. I don't recall applying, but my resume is posted on various job boards and I've been applying for so many jobs that I didn't really question it.
I thought an interview at 10am on a Saturday was odd but went anyways.

When I arrived I was kinda upset because about 20 other candidates showed up. The confirmation didn't seem like it would be a group interview.

Suite 700 is a generic floor in an office building. There was NO signage or logos for Truck Load Support, LLC

Milton Collier, gave the presentation which was over an hour long talking about how logistics is a recession proof business etc. He stressed that anyone is trainable. He was also quite inspiring.

He also mentioned that the GA Dept. of Labor contacted them to create more jobs. Turns out there are only 2 open positions in the "office" , but there are plenty work at home positions.

Everything sounded legit and great except that you had to agree to set up a Toll Free Roll Over Number which is $99. He stressed how software etc. are provided by the company. Mr. Collier claims that the company used to pay the activation fee but no longer does because if someone quits before they make the company money the company loses $99.

The presentation was on point, lots of information, packets with numbers, pay scales.

At the end he said he had a training group coming in and had to get ready. Then he said "I usually don't do this, but if you would like to start today you can stay for the training session and start ASAP and get your Toll Free Roll Over Number account set up today."

I didn't stay. Who hires a entire room of people on the fly?? Without a one on one interview??? If you chose to leave you had to write down a time period for him to call you Monday for a "one on one" interview over the phone.

A few of us chatted after the mass interview and a woman mentioned that she meet him a few years ago doing something similar in the real estate business ( might have been this http://www.free-press-release.com/news/200801/1200939810.html ) Notice the address is the same.

Mr. Collier said that the company started in 2007. After a simple Google search it looks as if the company was incorporated in 2010..... (http://www.lookupbook.com/directory/automobile-sales-and-repair/ga/stockbridge/truck-load-support-llc)

I'm providing a lot of detail because so much of the presentation made sense, and when something is too good to be true it probably is.

Please stop the lies!

AUTHOR: Shells - ()

This is either Milton Collier, his wife or the one lady thats at all his meetings and claims to be an employee. Milton Collier and his wife (who claims to be my soror) are nothing but scammers. God don't like ugly and those two are ugly. They love to use the Lords name and talk about how blessed they are when they are nothing but the devil himself. Collier you will be caught! Taking folks money they work hard for.

So to the person thats saying the company is so great, please go somewhere and get on your knees and pray for a better state of mind! You KNOW that it's nothing but a scam. Remember the real estate thing? How about family care source??? HUH remember when Milton COllier took everyone's money and shut the websites down? and changed his number???? REMEMBER???? 

Run, run but you can't hide! God's got it!

Don't Do It!!!!!

AUTHOR: Rob - (United States of America)

If you're that broke--you're about to lose a precious $199.00

This is a complete scam--I've done the homework.  Use Google, and search for everything on Milton Collier and TranZcenter.  You'll find all you need to know.  He now claims to be a veteran, and is "catering to veterans."  'm a 22-year vet, and have used my military "resources" to check up on Mr. Collier.  Trust me--this is a scam of epic proportions!

Look at the few "positive" reviews on here from "current employees."  It's all the same person--and the same person that wrote the content for their website.  How do I know this?  All of it is written in the same bad grammar and spews the same "infomercial-ish" garbage.  Al of the "employee" reviews just regurgitate the same scam info from their website.

Complete Scam!

AUTHOR: Rob - (United States of America)

Right! First, this is a complete scam!  If the company is making as much money as claimed, then there is no need to charge "employees" for the 800 number.  It's easy, and FREE to setup call forwarding to anyone's home phone with a separate ring and caller ID to represent the "company."

Second, all of these people, or should I say--one person submitting these rebuttals is just that--ONE PERSON.  They are not multiple legit employees working for TranZcenter.  Look at the rebuttals carefully--each one has the SAME bad grammar.  One look reveals the true nature of the company, or person.

Do your research, people!  Google is free to use--do a good search and read all you can about this "company." I challenge you to find a single "legit" employee, or even any "real" positive reviews. Also, go to the BBB website--they're not even incorporated!

The part that really bothers me, is the attempt to target veterans.  I am a veteran of over 22 years, and I NEVER sent these scammers my resume.  Someone sifts through your "viewable" resume on whatever job search engines you've got them on.

As always--if it sounds too good to be true, then it is!

Okay I've done all the interviews, been hired, and signing contract soon. I'm supposed to start April 2, 2012. I'm pregnant and my baby is due April 13, 2012 plus have court fines to pay and a child support case coming up. I'm desperate to be able to get started and this business sounded legit. BBB gave it a B rating saying it was lowered by not being around long and poor advertising.  Tranzcenter is the company name now. I'm risking $199 of my boyfriend's money. I can't find anywhere else willing to give me a chance. I will post whatever you need to help me just please I don't want to be scammed again by another company just trying to get on my feet while preparing for my new baby.

OK, Lets Break It Down.........

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

Do reverse lookup on the street address. It's actually a 'virtual' office in Atlanta. Check out  this setup at youroffice dot com. A virtual office is one notch up from a rented box at a UPS Store.

Does he operate out of his basement? His mothers basement maybe? He's embarassed about something.........

The websites used by TLS all have private domain registrations (cloaked identity).

BIG RED FLAGS here folks.

Let me guess, he gets lots of people in a room and charges them that mythical $99 fee. There's a psychological reason for that price. It's high enough to generate super profits and low enough to sucker people into paying it. I'm sure he offered everyone a close look at a contract, right???

This guy probably travels all around for these sales presentations. BIG $$$

Does he ever list any real references in the industry??? His shills don't count.

Once you have your toll free number how do people know to call it? There must be hundreds if not thousands of them being handed out. Do you have to post your number on websites? Truck stop mens rooms? Where do your customers come from?

Thank God For Mr. Milton Collier

AUTHOR: Thank God For Mr. Milton Collier - (United States of America)

Let me start by saying THANK God for individuals like Mr. Milton Collier. I was hired and trained by him in 2009.

Mr. Collier is very clear about the requirements to become a Freight Agent. He let you know up front that you are REQUIRED to have Computer and be able to setup a Professional Telework Telephone System.

The Telework Telephone System allows us to work from home in a Very PROFESSIONAL Manner. So, when one of our clients likes Good Year Tires call to have their freight shipped, we are able to operate in a very professional manner.

Where else can you go in the Transportation Industry, where the company pays for all your TRAINING?

My Overview:



  • Im currently moving three (3) shipments a day @ $90 per shipment (loads) = Im currently earning $270 daily. (Thanks Mr. Collier for the Training.


  • I receive FREE Training for one (1) year No Cost What So Ever!  Mr.      Collier team paid the Monthly Telephone for the Telework Telephone System I just set it up...


  • Mr. Collier team paid for all the Insurance and Bonds Requirement Mr. Collier team paid for Load Boards and Freight Systems

    The bottom line Mr. Milton Collier and his team PAID for everything, the only thing I had to be responsible for was having a computer and setting up the telephone system.


    Again THANK GOD for Mr. Milton Collier.

Milton is still at large

AUTHOR: Cheapster - (United States of America)

He's is operating the same scam under the guise of TranzCenter LLC. But he is now asking for $199 for a "phone activation".

I stayed on the phone in the group interview for 2 hours, at the end of which he ask everyone to email "the company" to setup a 1-on-1 interview.

It is definitely too good to be true.
