SEO Reputation Management at its best!

 This “company” preys on people who are down on their luck and looking for work. They found my resume on Monster.com. A highly polished sales person pretending to care called me and told me that my resume was very impressive. He convinced me that looking for and securing job interviews and future employment was almost impossible doing it the conventional way, which is mostly all on-line these days. He told me that Acquire (or Eliteidea.com) would re-brand me and get me in front of hundreds of recruiters and firms that had positions that were not posted publicly. He made many other promises such as a resume re-write, Linkedin page branding, and help in negotiating with prospective employers (of which there would be many). He also pitched the idea that since most companies pay recruiters to find them high value candidates, I would have a distinct advantage since these companies would not have to pay a recruiter a finder’s fee since it was I that had paid to be found, and this would even help me to secure a signing bonus with the prospective firm. I asked him specifically if he was confident that Acquire would be able to help me considering my existing resume and career accomplishments. He assured me that I was exactly what they were looking for and that they would not take on clients that they did not feel were marketable with a high chance of success. I liked the idea of getting in front of firms that did not publicly post job openings, so I gave them a try with high expectations, even though I was apprehensive about the high fee, which I could really not afford at the time. During the first week or two I was impressed with the way it started. I was contacted by their interviewer. It was her job to ask me many questions about my entire career. The purpose was to write a bio or professional “profile”. After this period, the information was supposedly given to their writers. This is where it all started going downhill. Nothing was done in the time frame that was outlined to me in the sales call. There was one excuse after the other as to why my profile was not done, and my campaign had not begun. They originally told me I had a 30 day money back guarantee, but since the work was not done I did not ask for the refund at that time. I was invested and still had high hopes. Their promise was to do one campaign per month. As far as I could tell, this consisted of an impersonal email blast to recruiters around the country not even necessarily in the areas where I was located or looking for a position. No companies related to my field of expertise with actual job openings were contacted. After six months, I had gotten only TWO “campaigns”. I did not receive one job offer, interview request, or even a single call back from a recruiter or prospective employer. I asked for a refund after four months because of the dismal results from the 1st campaign and the continual postponing of progress. I did not receive any response to that request only how they were going to make changes to get better responses from the next campaign. Every time I requested things that were promised by the sales person, I was told that they do not do those things, and that I must have misunderstood. When I became upset with all of this (who wouldn’t be for $7,500?), I was told that my attitude was probably the reason I had not yet been hired! At this point I again asked for a refund as I was a totally unhappy client. I never got a response. I called the president of the company and he did not bother to call me back. I have never heard anything back from these guys at all at this point, and now their website is apparently offline. I got ripped off. THIS IS A TOTAL SCAM! BEWARE!!
