On April 13th, 2006 a young man Chris Farrell Jr knocked on our door selling magazines to help finance his soccer club (Phoenix Stars) trip to Australia. He mentioned his mother lived down the street from me, a neighbor. I like to help neighbors with their causes so my wife and 15 year old son picked out magazines and I wrote a check for $130.00. The check was payable to Integrity Sales a name very familiar to me. I had been previously asked for information on the whereabout of an contemporary of Integrity Sales, Choan Lane.
My research and yours will show that Choan Lane ran a door to door magazine sales operation named Y.E.S.. The typical way of doing business was to go to malls and pick up youths, run aways etc with promises of exciting travel big money etc. These young people would travel around in vans from town to town converging on communities to sell magazines under the pretext that it was a for a school trip etc.
While in Wisconsin during one of these canvesings 7 young people died in a van wreck. There is much documentation on the internet. Choan Lane received a few years in the pen for his role. His ex wife Karleen Hillery aka Karleen Humphries aka Karlene Pierce aka Britney Renee Hillery aka Erica Brooks Hillery aka Karleen Lane aka Karleen Hiller-Spuiel had a large percentage interest in Y.E.S. but somehow escaped criminal prosicution. One of her companies was however sued and I believe insurance companies had to pay off. I have a copy of the appeal.
If searching the web one will find many complaints about these magazine peddlers and a common theme is that they are earning money to go on a school/club trip and that a relative lives in the neighborhood. Rip Off Reports has many email threads as does Traveling Sales Crews.
The Oklahoma Department of Labor on July 01, 1999 signed an agreed Settlement and Consent Order whereby would not admit to the charges but agreed to pay $10,000.00 in fines of Oklahoma Compensation violations. Subscriptions Plus also agreed to cease operations there.
May 02, 2002 The State of Illinois Attorney General filed a fraud complaint 02-CH-125 against Karleen Hillery and all her aka and several of her company names. The complaint alleged that her crews were selling subscription door to door and the consumer was not getting the subscriptions nor refunds.
The Arizona Corporation Division shows Integrity Sales, LLC has Robert Spuiel as it's member. The Arizona Corporation Division has listed Subscriptions Plus, Inc as applying for corporate status in May 05. The state takes notice that an address for the business is omitted. There is no annual report yet but the Affidavit of Publication is there and you see that this was submitted by Karleen Hiller-Spruiel.
As you can see Karleen Hiller-Spruiel has many names, maybe many marriages. There seems to be a pattern and practice that Ms. Hiller-Spruiel husband (s) have business's that promotes door to door sales. Ms. Hiller Spuiel has a business in the background that is affiliated.
You notice from the website www.intregitysale.com. Robert Spruiel is the first picture and Karleen is further down under Kays Naturals. Kay is another aka for Karleen. Yes she is a crew leader. I have to wonder if Integrity and it's associates are committing the same violations of labor and criminal acts. Maybe you can ask this question?
The State of Arizona Supreme Court has criminal courts actions listed for both Karleen Hillery-Spruiell and Robert Spruiell. It is also reported that Karleen spent time in an Illinios prison for her 3rd DUI conviction.
She has articles of incorpoation n Arizona Her name will not appear except in the articles of publication.
Karleen Hillery-Spruiell and Robert Spruiell are in divorce court. Another of many for her. Look for another front man very soon in an attempt to shield her.
Reports reflect that she is from share cropper stock and is trying vainly to rise from the social economic statis she was born into through marriages and scams.
There is a police report that shows the arrest of 2 of her "sub-contractors" for attempted theft when they tried stealing a check from a prospective magazine purchaser. They were invited in for a glass of water and had prior arrest. This information has been forwared to local news paper reports and Attorney Generals Office.
