===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
National Association Of Professional Women NAPW - Owner Just another in the long line of scams... Garden City New York
Where do we start with Mr.? Well, first of all he's a high school drop out - now there's nothing wrong with that alone, but when its coupled with trying to cheat on a Series 7 exam, and setting up countless faux-professional organizations to scam hardworking people out of their money, that's where I have a problem.
Google it and you'll see, tried to cheat on a Series 7 exam, paying someone smarter than him (probably not too hard to find) to take it in his place. "NASD filed a complaint against in July 1997 alleging that arranged to have an imposter take the Series 7 Qualification Exam on his behalf in March 1995 and that failed to respond to NASD requests for information related to the investigation of that allegation."
next scam (that we know of) came in the form of a Manchester Who's Who business in which he hired "sales professionals" (if you could read a script and didn't mind scamming people out of their money, you were hired!) to solicit to those worthy of notation in this "prestigious" publication (no offense to anyone in the following fields, but I don't see why secretaries, custodial workers, and medical assistants should be included in this - which they were).
When trouble hit there, moved on to his most recent and disgusting scheme, the National Association of Professional Women. Now I am all for an organization that is all about empowering women, but not like this. First of all, NAPW was not born out of a sincere effort to help professional women further their success, but only to further. They buy your information, pressure you into a sale, and then charge you $19.99 for shipping and handling (check the postage, its about $2.00 - the handling is the receptionist complaining about breaking a nail from stuffing too many envelopes.) This man thinks of nothing but dollars and cents...that, and how many of his employees he can hook up with. If you were to take a look around the office, you'd see they only hire good-looking women (some barely out of high school). (Hmm...I wonder why the receptionist makes well over 50 grand a year?!?!?)
Speaking of NAPW employees, here's the scoop on them. Craig Bifulco is old high school buddy and has been riding those dirty coattails for over ten years. Bifulco handles all of the calls to women who were pressured into purchasing this "membership" but come to their senses and decide to cancel it. When he is rude or obnoxious, a regular occurrence, and a member asks to speak to his supervisor, she is patched through to the receptionist and then Mark/Nick/Andy or any other BS name - this is in fact Bifulco putting on a fake voice and repenting for his "employee's" actions. Cindy Burens in marketing and PR has the intelligence of a cardboard box, but shes gorgeous and bubbly and people would rather look at her than, so that deserves a cool 80 grand a year, right?!? Of course. Then there's Julie O'Grady, in human resources. She's got no HR background at all, and simply trolls around monster and carreerbuilder all day for someone, anyone to hire...requirements are minimal (speak english, can read a script, pushy enough to make a sale, no soul etc..) Then when they come in to interview, she makes fun of them when they leave the room, laughs at their clothes, and sometimes simply refuses to meet with them because they "look weird". Oh yes, NAPW is all about helping women!
How I have come to get this information is irrelevant, I just know that it's true.It all boils down to this, if you get a mailing or call from the National Association of Professional Women, throw it out or hang up (or curse them out if you feel so inclined)! You have not been specially selected as a notable woman in your field (those teaching assistants and video store workers who have been contacted can probably vouch four this). They pressure you into a sale on the spot (so you don't have time to research and see them for what they are!) Your information has been bought from some other shady company and you are being SCAMMED!
