Thomas Anthony Guerriero Chairman & CEO WMX Group Holdings, Inc. (WMXG:OTCBB) www.wmxgroup.com
Upon starting at WMX Group, myself and 5 other new hires were greeted by a 30 minute staff meeting held by Mr. Guerriero where he went on a 5 minute rant chastising the staff for not working extra hours over the weekend. It was a terrible first impression and I started feeling that I made the wrong decision to fork over $1500 to work for this man. After the meeting, my assigned team leader instructed me to search all the free job sites to pull as many resumes as possible. My assignment was to cold call these people and book them to interview at WMX Group. I was informed I would receive $250 for each recruit I booked that came on board and paid the $1950 (new rate) licensing class fee. I was also required to work a minimum of 12 hour days 6 days per week.
I quickly realized I was working in a Boiler Room. There was never a real job nor real responsibilities. I was sold this job as a financial analyst or wealth advisor. In the week I spent at WMX I never witnessed any finance or advising happening other than Mr. Guerriero calling his wife every time a new recruit check arrived so she could go deposit it at the Bank of America down the block. The only thing I learned from Mr. Guerriero was that he owned the Springfield Armor, an NBA D league team; he was the youngest inductee ever into Marquis Whos Who in America; that he attended grad school at Harvard; was a professional soccer player; that he had had dinner with Hillary Clinton a few weeks prior; he had a custom-made Bentley; he owned a world-renowned educational institute; and he appeared in the major motion picture film Any Given Sunday. Mr. Guerriero could not stop talking about himself and never talked about finance.
When Mr. Guerriero disappeared from the office for 3 days for what he categorized as a money raising business trip, the staff started discovering the web lies Mr. Guerriero fed each and everyone of us. He had no Bentley, he rode to work on his 50cc scooter; WMX was never ISO certified; WMX was not registered to operate as a broker/dealer or an investment advisor firm; WMX was insolvent and was living recruit check to recruit check; there is no evidence Marquis Who's Who knows Mr. Guerriero exists; his educational institute is not certified or accredited anywhere on this planet; and that Mr. Guerriero never appeared in any movie per IMDBs uncredited search.
We also discovered the extent of Mr. Guerrieros previous sex scandal, lawsuits and payoffs. More distressing, we learned that Mr. Guerriero pulled this same exact job scam in New York City just 2 years earlier with his now defunct Guerriero Wealth Advisors organization.
I now know and understand that WMX Holding Group is just a scam. The evidence is undeniable. I asked the WMX Chief of Staff, Diana Rivera, for a refund of my licensing fee and she advised me absolutely NO REFUNDS! Its a front for a pyramid scheme to attract, recruit and take advantage of desperate job-seekers into swindling them out of $1950. I take responsibility for being naive and making the mistake of trusting Mr. Thomas Guerriero and I was deceived out of $1500. I just hope this and other victims' reports prevent others from making the same mistake I and dozens of other victims made.
My personal opinion is that Mr. Thomas Anthony Guerriero should be investigated for fraud. This job scam is so wrong on every ethical and moral level and certainly cant be legal. I hope justice is served and that Mr. Guerriero is put out of business for good so he can stop hurting so many people.
