 Hello. Let me start this report by saying that "Mike" from tk worldwide should be ashamed of himself. I responded to an ad in port charlotte florida searching for sales associates at a local ford dealership. Came in for the interveiw and was greeted by a very proffesional looking man. He introduced himself as Mike and I introduced myself. We walked into an office and he conducted his interveiw. After it was done he said he would like me to come back for orientation/training that he was conducting there at the dealership for three days. He represented himself as a manager at the dealership so I never questioned when he told me I may have to pay for my training course and materials. He never discussed a price though.

So I went in on the first day of the orientation. Everything was fine. There were 19 people in the class. He proceeded to go over all the details of what is expected of us and started to train us on how to sell a car. As the class was ending he said he was going to make his final decision of who he wanted to offer the job to. He called us back one by one and when he was done talking with them he made them leave. Well when it was my turn I walked in sat down and he proceeded to tell me that I would do great in the business and he would love to offer me the job, only I had to come up with the $630.00 to take my training class and get the training manuals. I never expected him to ask for that up front and I asked why I had to pay for my training if I was going to be an employee?

He explained that it was to make sure I was truely interested in the job that there had been many people go through the training then quit costing the company money so they asked for this at first to see your level of commitment. He said it would be fully reimbursed after 90 days. He was very convincing and I fell for it. I told him it would take me a little while to come up with the money but I would do anything I could to get the position. Well I called two days later to let him know I had the money and I was informed by the actual management at the dealership that he had skipped out and no one had any contact information for him. Turns out he was scamming the whole class. He ran off with eight peoples $630.00 and promised them jobs.

Luckily I did not have the money and I avoided the whole scam. However the other 8 people were not so lucky. Now they are out all that money and have no job. I have been able to get in touch with the group that did get scammed after I talked to the manager of the dealership. The group I contacted are filing police reports and the hunt is on for "Mike". I just wanted to put this story out there because from what I have seen and heard this has been going on for too long and no one realizes it until its too late. He skipped town with $5040.00 dollars of innocent peoples money that they will probobly never see again, and now have no job to boot. As I said before he should be ashamed of himself. Please do not fall for the same scam. 

Thank you for taking the time to read my report.

#2 REBUTTAL Owner of company

We do NOT charge applicants! This is a case of mistaken identity.

AUTHOR: Kevin - ()

You have the WRONG company!

My company does NOT charge applicants any fees for any reason ever! We do not have a field recruiter/trainer who works for us by the name of Mike. Please go back and check your paperwork, or anything you may have gotten from this company and when you verify that you have made a mistake, please redirect this ripoff report to the proper company who is responsible for this action against you and those other job seekers who were in the class with you and who were also taken advantage of.

You and the others who were ripped off do deserve justice and I will be happy to help you by showing you what proceedures you can follow that will give you the best possible chance to get your money back. You can call our office anytime during normal business hours and ask for me personally. 

There is a company out there who does this by the name of World Wide Consulting Services based out of Charlotte, NC http://www.wwcsonline.com They have an F Rating with the BBB and the last time I checked their web site it was down. Sometimes people get our companies mixed up because of the name similarity.

The Owner of this company is Peter D. Ferigan

Please update this ripoff report and remove our company name, address, phone number and any information that leads people to believe this is us when it is CLEARLY NOT. Then call the office and I will be happy to assist you in any way I can to get the company who took your money to issue you a full refund. 

Thank you.

President/CEO
