This ad was posted in Los Angeles, CA but there are several ads recently posted throughout Craigslist all entitled


                             "Call Center Agents-WORK FROM HOME"


 The company, TIF Security is located in Houston, Texas. They claim they will pay commission upon installation of a security system and they don't.

(This is totally working out of your own home--1099)   I worked for Eric Rhodes for over two and a half weeks full time.  And, although, I created multiple security alarm installs for the company I was told I would not get paid for them.

And, when it came time for him to pay me he said he didn't have to pay me because he said I quit.   I requested my commission money and he refused to pay me.  And for the record I never quit.

So anyone who works for Eric Rhodes --don't plan on getting paid.   I just want to save other people the heart ache of working and not receiving compensation for their work. I was verbally promised by Eric Rhodes that I would always get paid for all my installs.

There are many ads from this company recently put out on Craigslist and they are in different cities and states. But, the company is located in Houston, Texas and they supposedly have people working from all over the country. Too bad they're not honest and pay the telemarketers working out of their homes for services rendered. And, I hope other people who have worked for Eric Rhodes will come forward with their complaints and protect others like myself from getting ripped off.

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Disgruntled Agent Work at Home Agent

AUTHOR: Eric Rhodes - ()

Donna Brown from Claremont, CA posted this bogus "rippoff" report after she QUIT and was unhappy over not receiving a commission for a sale ($220) that was closed 3-weeks after she QUIT.   She signed our independent marketing agreement that states: "agents forfeit commission if they QUIT".  Donna gave numerous excuses as to why she QUIT but she still believed that she deserved commission that our office closed 3-weeks after she QUIT.  The fact is that Donna was unable to close ANY SALES.  She was on the phone for over a week before we figured out she could not CLOSE SALES. 


She was indeed making calls and contacts; but this position was a position that required the sales person to close their own sales.  Because I felt she was trying, I told her to transfer her calls to me personally and I would try to close them for her.  That is what we started doing and she started to get sales commissions: point blank because I followed up on her leads and closed the deals.  


What Donna did not post in her "bogus rippoff"  report was that she was paid more than $1,200 in commissions for the leads that she gave us, but was unable to close on her own.   She was also paid for 2 sales after she "QUIT" (which violates our independent marketing agreement).  We did this in good faith after she said that "it was really her spouse that had the issues with her leads". 


Her post is NOT TRUE and she is leading others to believe that she NEVER got paid and she knows that is NOT TRUE.  Donna also neglected to post the fact that she has worked for 5 different alarm companies within the past 6-months (what she told me) and the end result was the same. 


In 3+ years that we have been in the Alarm business, we have NEVER had any Work at Home Agents who have complained about not getting paid or us being dishonest with their pay.   We currently have 4-work at home agents and they are all making MONEY. 

It is disappointing that this one person can try to ruin a good reputation.  She knows what happened and that her post is terribly dishonest.
