I am a former employee for the Burnstein and Burnstein "firm". I have never in my life worked for a slimeball low life like Mr. Joey Dima. Joey, also known as Sid, Sy, and Isreal Burnstein (all fake names) opened this crap company out of the basement of his home 11 years ago. His website states he (Sid) inherited the company from his father, who inherited it from his father many many years ago. First lie. "Sid" never went to college, his picture is photoshopped, he can barely function without his staff typing his EVERY email (not to mention dirty texts to various females).
This man only hires 20 something females he thinks he can "get". He has made passes at every female, even going as far as forcing himself onto some. His "family run company" consists of strippers and phone sex opperators whom he gives the last name Burnstein and says they are all his neices. Lies.
Worst of all!!! He embezzles THOUSANDS AND THOUSANDS of client's money!!! He collects the debts and doesnt pay the clients their 75%!!!! He says he does "remittance" once a month, and pays any monies collected on or around the 15th of every month. I'll put it this way, the company brings in hundreds of accounts A DAY and he pays around 150 clients a month. You can do the math. He banks thousands every week into his own personal bank accounts. Not including the one bank account his ex-wife (currently going through divorce for domestic battery) actually KNOWS about.**side note** His violence comes out on employees as well**
When a client calls inquiring about a payment that they were told was made, he plays dumb and "looks into it personally" and magically the check is cut. Majority of his accounts that he holds payments to himself, he keeps and hopes the company doesnt call to ask for it!! Also, when new accounts are sent in, he tells his admin to let them know they "have already been entered into the system and the collectors have already began the process"-- LIES!!!! There are PILES all over the office of accounts that havent been entered in from MONTHS ago because he can't keep staff long enough to catch up!! If we don't put out, he fires. This is a daily thing. Girls don't last anymore than a couple of weeks there.
There is no filing system!!! Everything is notecards and pieces of paper piled into old boxes. Current clients: have you ever called and been put on hold for 10 minutes to be told everything has been taken care of? It's because Joey had every employee drop everything they were doing to dig through piles to find the account, ended up not finding it and, wrote a note on a post it for a reminder to keep looking after we hang up.
When we receive a check in the mail? And can't find the account after digging through pile after pile for an hour? Joey deposits the check anyway and if we don't find it.... oh well... the client doesn't get paid.
This company is foul. I am disgusted I was there for the few weeks I was, but I feel I was put there to bring justice to this piece of crap excuse for a man.
Run! Report! Current clients PULL YOUR ACCOUNTS and call a lawyer A.S.A.P.!!!
