I am writing this report on this so called NCA contest associated with a company called American Freedom Clearinghouse because I firmly believe that everyone should know the truth about them. I am a previous "contestant" and didn't realize at the time of my travels, but realize now that I'm done that it is a scam.
American Freedom Clearinghouse used to be known as Atlantic Circulation Inc., the new AFC has been in business for only 3 months now, but don't let their sales talk fool you. Atlantic Circulation Inc. was shut down due to so many complaints and people never receiving their magazines. They currently have a website that they try to convince future employees and possible magazine buyers to believe they are a positive influence on young adults, its called Winmytrip.me, that is where they show you their so called awesome magazines, where you see about these so called points they receive, and they try to convince you their legit. ANYONE can make a website and tell you whatever they like.
So lets get straight to the point, I actually worked for them unknowingly about the scam they are putting out there, once I found out I quit. It is not a contest. sure the young adult that comes to your door that is so charming might make you believe it is, but the only contest that is going on is who in the company can scam people for the most cash that day to pay for all their hotels and marijuana and alcohol they consume that day.
When I first started working for AFC, I thought heck, the website seems legit, Shoot they even take paypal, well after 3 months with them I kept hearing about complaints from people not receiving their magazines, and Pay Pal won't even associate with them anymore, that happens after enough complaints roll in to protect their name.
This company has no problem buying you a greyhound ticket to bring you from home to wherever they currently are at, but never unless your a manager or a person who can bring in hundreds of cash a day, will you be returned home if you dislike the job. Heres the routine for this company. Wake up at 7 am everyday, go to a "round robin", that is where they yell and cuss in a big circle saying "f*** you miss jones" and practicing their sales pitch FYI miss jones is anybody they talk to at doors or sale mags too. they then drop you off in sketchy neighborhoods and wherever they think people have money to start knocking on doors to convince you about a contest where they go overseas, they do not win a trip overseas, it takes months to get a visa, and most of the people ages ranging from 17-30 all have felony warrants in other states, that prevent them from traveling by plane anywhere. So, you walk all day till as long as it takes you to get people to buy magazines in cash to you earn enough to give them to make them happy, do not get any cash? well your getting dropped off at wal mart at 10 at night till the next day, still didnt pick up cash? well your either getting beat up by the "old heads" that have been there for awhile, or if your persistent with not picking up cash for a few days, then your being dropped off at the greyhound to fend for yourself for days till YOU find a way back home. they tell you they give you paid training, well for the first 3 days you work there, you will receive 20 bucks a day for working 12-15 hours, after that, no sales, no money. Granted when you do scam enough people that day in cash, you will make lots of money, but for anyone that has morals, or do not like scamming everyday good people, this job is not for you. They do not send magazines to any children hospitals, no care packages overseas to troops, and you yourself will not receive a magazine. On their receipts they sale you, cause thats all your buying, a receipt, they tell you it takes 120 days before you receive a magazine, seriously? 6 months to receive a magazine? They tell you that checks are deposited immediately, but on their website it says 5-7 business days. There is no tax write off with a gold copy of the receipt, do not fall for that. they are not Goodwill, or Salvation army. they are human trafficking and using the girls that they bring into their company for sex, even telling the woman as young as 18 remind you, that if you have sex with them you will be guaranteed to make alot of money, because of this, girls usually either make it, or they dont and end up at a greyhound. If your a guy, and you dont sell magazines well, be prepared to be jumped by multiple guys in a hotel room. I have heard nothing good about this company, that has only been in existence for 3months, and I believe everyone has a right to know about how they really work in their "contest" The Better Business Bureau is the best place to attempt to resolve your issue of not receiving your magazines. But if one of these charming guys or girls knocks on your door from American Freedom Clearinghouse, Call the police, they do not have a permit for soliciting, and they will try to convince you to give them as much cash as possible, they are scam artists, and have them arrested immediately. Thank you American Freedom Clearinghouse for making me that much stronger to make a boycott against magazine crews, and letting me have the voice and pride in myself to let people know the truth about your company. cold world.
