Madison Who's Who along with most of these other Who's Who so called Social Media sites are nothing but a scam on many levels. I worked with this company and did not check into the background of what they actually did until they scammed me out of 100's of thousands of dollars. I developed leads for them spending thousands on marketing for this Scott Minuta and Matthew (Matt) Schwartz aka Madison Who's Who.

First what do they do, they send you a email inviting you to join for free this who's who of executives and professionals. Sounds good right? Not until you get signed up with them for a few hundred dollars or a few thousand only to get a book and made bullshit award. You never meet other executives or professionals you actually get nothing for their service that I know of. I thought it was great idea at first because their websites looked so professional and actually like a social media platform not to mention Scott and Matt's great slick way of New York Style conning you into helping them.

These people and their company live to take food off your families table by fluffing you up and making you FEEL IMPORTANT. Dummy me I trusted these people without looking into their complete business model, I am not used to scammers coming from every corner stealing money from you.

This company owes me 200,000 to 500,000 in back commissions I know I'll never get paid from people like this but I am warning anyone out there that either A. get's a email like this to STAY AWAY as a consumer B. If your a internet Marketer Stay away from Who's Who as well they will take your money with a smile.

Thanks and be careful.

A Scam Indeed

AUTHOR: Freed Slave - ()

This is a company that attempts to strong arm it's employees to be extremely aggressive over the phone and get that credit card information no matter what on that initial contact with a prospective customer. The pay is less than minimum wage in fact and the week is 45 hours minus an hour for lunch each day. The reasoning behind all of that is to force the employee to be overly aggressive over the phone and to not respect any customer's boundaries in order to basically bully someone into buying a membership immediately if they are that gullible.

The company pays it's employees on a weekly basis but on the week of Thanksgiving, the company did not pay the employees until the following Monday as the office was closed for Friday after Thanksgiving. Furthermore, Scott Minuta (The owner) made everyone stay until 5:30 which is normal leaving time on the Wendseday before Thanksgiving while his girlfriend who works in the front office left at 2:30 pm. I have never worked for a company that pays on a weekly basis and did not pay it's employees the day before Thanksgiving. There have also been many instances where employees have tried to cash their checks and were told that there were insufficient funds in the company account.  

I am absolutely amazed that a company like this can stay in business for 10 years. What is the world coming to? If anyone gets a call from this company, make sure that you allow the primary contact person that they are asking for to speak to the representative and immediately ask to be placed on the Do Not Call List or they will call you no less than 6 to 10 times per day from Monday through Friday in order to get your money.

Once you become a member, they have a whole different department that harrasses you into buying a whole bunch of other things you don't need and that cannot help you at all such as a useless plaque or a man of the year award. Please be very afraid of this company and do not spend your hard earned money with them. I myself was let go due to being too empathetic with prospective customers and being too customer service oriented and not being a total scoundrel trying to dupe old ladies out of their pension money.

Bill Waggoner- internet pariah

AUTHOR: Madison Who''s Who - (United States of America)

Bill, your personal blackmailing agenda should be kept just that, personal. Keep that garbage in your convoluted mind and stop wasting everyone's time. This website is for LEGITIMATE complaints, not your whining.

Should we follow the lead of Roger Fredinburg and actually succumb to your threats, how much did he have to pay you to recant your lying reviews?

See nonsense complaint :


Or hows about your PRISTINE "Spam King" footsteps?


OR!! Should we join one of the HUNDREDS of hate groups against you?

Search Bill Waggoner on Facebook, you will see:

1,000,000 People Against THe Bill Waggoner
We Hate Bill Waggoner The idiot
Bill Waggoner Belongs to the Devil
Bill Waggoner is f**king demon

I could go on forever!

You need to get a life and stop trolling website trying to destroy the reputation of others simply because you are known to be terrible at your job.


Everyone who has had the displeasure of coming in contact with you.

Everyone who had the misfortune of falling into one of your traps.

And generally, everyone who uses the internet and suffered brain trauma from reading your unintelligent ignorant sociopathic reviews/comments/videos.
