This, or should I say "these" companies, (Student Relations, Inc., American Youth Group, Inc., American Youth Corp, Students Of America, TCB Sports Marketing Group, Inc.) are all SCAMS
and they are owned by the same two individuals. These same two individuals, Louis Victor
and Michael J. Martoe
, and two of the above listed businesses have either had their Corporation Registration revoked or dissolved.
When you first inquire about the job they call you almost immediately and in the fashion of a telemarketer. With the experience I have in internet scams, and the current service I run as an internet scam investigator, I applied for this job. Oh, yes Louis and Mike I said it! I am an Internet SCAM Investigator and you have been busted sorry! Later I will point out what to watch for in these con/scam artists but first my story dictated in the form of my professional opinion.
It started by obviously applying for TCB Sorts Marketing Group. I was then contacted by a man born and bred of New Jersey named Louis Victor. Louis promised me the lifestyle of the rich and famous. Next I was told I would be contacted by Mike Martoe the Manager of Sales, both gentlemen represented themselves on behalf of TBC and mentioned nothing of the other companies.
After the initial conversations I was told I would be receiving a package containing my first exciting assignment. The duties of this position that I was told in the beginning is that I would be working with schools from around my geographical area and then approaching small- oh what was it? Oh yeah, "Mom & Pop" businesses. When I received the information it was out-dated with very poor design and creation. There were several forms and paperwork all with the same address, "1300 SW 10th Street, Delray Beach, Florida 33444.
Immediately I began to laugh. These two guys claim they have a huge clientele, they have hundreds of employees or contractors, they service 41 out of the 52 states, ha, yes 52 and they are using one company for recruiting
(TCB), one company for publishing (American Youth Group-formerly American Youth Corp), one company to manage their
"distributors/contractors" (NCCD or National Coast to Coast Distributors), and finally one for these poor people to pay for these
awesome and "Cadillac" advertising (SRI or Student Relations, Inc.-formerly Students of America) so that you will never be able to tie these men to it. I was also told under no circumstances should I contact the schools for it would jeopardize the contract.
Well being the person I am of course I contacted the school and they had no idea of this so-called "contract" for folders and calenders. As a matter-of-fact the guidance counselor that Louis and Mike claimed authorized this order retired over two years ago and her signature was forged to a recent document! WOW!
The reality is that these two Con-Men are stealing from these small-town businesses for a "rate" of $299.00 USD and are not even sending the product to the schools, they print just enough copies to send to their distributors/field reps for samples. When you get the samples and contact the businesses advertised on these folders, they have no clue who these guys or companies are!
There are other complaints that former employees have not been paid for expenses, salary, commissions, etc... I have no knowledge of this because I was not taking the investigation that far because it would have resulted in me supplying these thieves with my social security number.
Now that I have told you this I will back up for just a minute. When this investigation began , I researched these companies to the fullest and found several reports and complaints listed through the BBB of Florida and the BBB of New Jersey and found complaints of non-payment, miss-leading information, and even physical and sexual harassment and threatening. One including a guy stating that Louis Victor told him this individual to get his mom to suck his d***, and that he would stab him in the eye with a fork!!!
I questioned Mike Martoe of this and I was told that it was false and that the guy just had a grudge against them and the complaint was fictitious.
Concluding my investigation I called and asked for Louis, I told him I had an uneasy feeling about the company and would send this preposterous "Starter Packet" back. I was then told to go f*** my mother and that the last guy that did this got stabbed in the eye with a fork and that he would kill me and my family!
Okay that statement there will tell you that these are not businessmen, they are crooks with a vigilant intent.
I am in correspondence with the Florida Attorney Generals Office and are relinquishing all printed material and voice recordings to them and starting an official investigation in conjunction with them and having these guys shut down for good and also bringing criminal harassment, threatening, and federal fraud charges against them.
I ask for anyone with similar experiences with any of these companies to join my team of professionals to bring them to justice and make it to where they will never be allowed to operate in this country again. I can help you!
The sad thing is that they portray themselves as christian professionals that are out to help the kids and students of these schools when the ones that they are truly harming are these students and kids, this money can actually be going to the ones who really need it!
I have no doubt that one of these delightful and professional businessmen will reply to this report, which will all the more concrete my concluding hypothesis of these thieves. So have at it guys.
I am deeply sorry to those who have been monetarily demised by these two men, I wish I could have done this sooner but let this be a warning to all... DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE THAT OTHERS HAVE BLINDLY AND CONFUSEDLY MADE!
This has, once again, professionally been diagnosed as a SCAM!
