My 18-year old daughter became an employee with Face to Face Technologies with the promise of $150/day plus bonuses with sales, travel, travel expenses paid by the company, and room for advancement. My daughter accepted a position with the company and left for Oklahoma City, OK, the next day after applying. My daughter continued to telephone me and say that she only received $20/day and one day made "my mark," meaning selling two magazine subscriptions in one day. She received $25 that day.
Yesterday, April 22, 2008 @ 1658, the hospital calls and informs me that my daughter had been "dropped off at the ER from a van and left there for treatment." I inquired about what treatment and the nurse responded, "I'll let you speak to your daughter." My daughter gets on the phone, my heart dropped, as she tried to explain what had happened to her. Once I de-escalated and comforted my daughter, she explained while trying to make a sale a man assaulted and raped her and then Travis Foster (Driver for this company) then dropped her off at the ER and left.
Detective Ron Wilson then called me at home and explained about the company and his dissatisfaction with the company just "dumping her off and leaving without talking to police, nurses, doctors, or any body for the matter."
I have only had conversations with the my daughter, the nurses at the hospital, and Detective Wilson. Not one person from this company has returned my calls. I have left several messages at this phone number:
When you call the number it begins with a recorded message of great money opportunities for 18-year olds or older that is able to travel and then prompts you to hold to speak with a representative - press #1 to talk to Jessica - press #2 to talk to Mark Shumate. I pressed #2 to talk to the president of the company Mark Shumate - the phone rang and rang and then the recording informed me that he was not available and hung up. I called back several times and pressed #2 for Jessica - rang and rang and recording informed me to hold for the next available representative and then the recording informed me that no representatives were available to leave my name and telephone number and someone would call me soon.
Two days - still no call from the company or any representatives. Detective Wilson just called and informed me that my daughter was picked up by Travis Foster and returned to Oklahoma City. I still can not get in touch with anybody @ Face to Face Technologies. After reading some of the other ripoff reports about this company - I believe my daughter is in grave danger now.
I need someone's help in getting my daughter home - alive! Please I am begging for someone's help!
