The information provided in this report is based on comments made by Adam Siskind in an interview held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Mr. Siskind or PlaybackClothing.com.

During an on-site interview with Adam Siskind, he stated that he was the owner and founder of PlaybackClothing.com. He plays an everyday role in manufacturing recycled t-shirts and sweatshirts. Mr. Siskind mentioned, “I work on improvements every day; other than that, there are no future changes in progress for the company.”

Adam Siskind discussed that he personally handles customer complaints and will do what it takes at all times to make the customer happy and to keep them coming back. This usually means the customer receives free merchandise. An example of this was when a client was upset because he felt the shipping fees were too high. Mr. Siskind assured the customer they look for the lowest cost for shipping and do not add fees to shipping. To compensate, he provided the customer with free merchandise.

In response to complaints on Ripoff Report, Adam Siskind stated, “The complaint came from a former employee and I feel he is trying to extort me. I always make sure employees and contractors are paid in full.” He went on to say that to prevent this from happening in the future he is employing background checks.

Mr. Siskind stated that it gives him great confidence to know his company is well thought of by the Ripoff Report Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. He stated that he makes sure all employees know to do whatever it takes to satisfy the customers, and if an employee needs assistance, he steps in to assist. Furthermore, he stated that the customer comes first and that is the number one job for employees to recognize.

PLAYBACK CLOTHING / Statements from the employees.

Ripoff Report was pleased to learn that the company's past and current approach to business is focused on its pledge to total commitment towards client and employee satisfaction.

Adam Siskind told Ripoff Report that PLAYBACK Clothing is based on new ways to do eco apparel through recycling...We try to make the most eco product and make it look unique and differentiated through our proprietary dual colored fabrications and specialized yarns.. We also try to tell a great story.. Sweatshirts/t shirts from X ray film, denim, microwave trays, clothing scraps, PET bottles and who knows what’s next. We tell the whole story with compelling visual displays. Recycling is our mission but the true merit of the brand is how different and arguably better it looks compared to traditional apparel.

We exist to make better clothing in a better way. To make you look and feel better while being Eco-Friendly. To make the Earth a cleaner place. Our process is better because we recycle. What do we recycle? Well, anything and everything, as long as the material can be used to make high-quality recycled Eco-Friendly t-shirts and hoodies. That's the key. We never treat making better clothes and helping our environment as two separate things.

Adam Siskind Playback Clothing Adam Siskind of Playback ,playbackclothing.com has no integrity - A conman of the worst kind who makes Madoff looks good. Once you finished your job or delivered the goods, you'll never get paid. Brooklyn, New York

Adam Siskind and Playback Clothing Adam Siskind the founder of Playback Clothing is a thief, a typical although not very smart, con man. As you find out, if youre unfortunate to do business or work for this con man, you will never get paid, and if you miraculously do get paid, it will be after months of hearing Adam rationalizing to himself and to you why you shouldnt get paid, and if you do get paid, it will be for a fraction of what you realy deserve.

The man is a pathological liar of the worst kind. Although a little bit of greed may be useful under some business conditions, Adams greed make it blind to anything and everything. Hes driven by greed and greed alone common sense out the window. Adam Siskind started his career by working for his father. His father left him and his brother, Jeffrey Siskind, a very successful company, Bernette Textile. Con men are not known for their managerial skills or their willingness to work hard, so not surprisingly, in spite of Jeffreys best efforts to keep Bernette in the right path, Adam quickly drove the company to the ground.

When thing got really bad, and Bernette was losing millions of dollars, money that his father had worked so hard to earn, Adam then decided, its time to bail out. He ripped off his brother, Jeffrey Siskind, milked some money out of what left of Bernette, and launched Playback clothing, leaving Jeff to deal with all the mess created and invented by Adam, his snake of a brother. Playback clothing is a typical Adam Siskind play. Its a sham. There are practically no sales after Adam brilliantly changed the name from Pureplay to Playback. In the process screwing up all these vendors that started marketing under the name PurePlay.

There should be some laws against people like Adam Siskind managing anything. Adam Siskind is a habitual liar who would stop at nothing in his pursuit of money. His greed is driving him to new levels of thievery and conniving that makes Bernard Madoff looks like a saint. Stubbing his brother in the back was only the beginning of Adams illustrious career. He found a creative way to save on his payroll expenses.

Like most petty thieves and con men, Adam Siskind feels that using, abusing, and manipulating his employees is a kosher and efficient way of running his defunct playback clothing. Stealing money from his employees is his way of keeping his sham going.

Adam Siskind, who is much more adept to be a mugger than a business man, hires people, tell them all these wonderful stories about hid debt laden and dysfunctional playback clothing. He tells them how wonderful things are going to be, convince them to work day and night for him, and when its time to pay them, he comes up with stories that only his wife Sara Siskind would believe. Then, when they get tired of listening to his delusional stories, Adam, who would be much better at pick-pocketing than managing people, replaces these poor souls with his next victims.

To give credit when credit is due, the man is one of the greatest story teller one could ever imagine. Hes a good story teller because he actually believes his own lies. Since the population in the USA is smarter than Adam Siskind on the average, Adam hires young and nave people to work for him. He tells them all these stories about the environment although, but his own admission, he couldnt care less about the environment.

Although these people work for him day and night, sometimes 16 to 17 hours a day, Adam doesnt pay any taxes for them. He doesnt see it as necessary. This is the reason why Adam prefers to hire people who collect unemployment. This government fraud is a perfect situation for a con man like Adam. He doesnt have to pay them much because theyre already collecting from the government, and obviously theres no need to pay taxes for them. So much for Adam Siskind who cares about the environment, so if you make the critical mistake of accepting employment from Adam Siskind or in any way providing him products or services, please be aware and make sure you get paid in advance.
