Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

This guy is a liar and a rip off . He wants you to submit your music to "commercials" and promisses that you will make a ridiculous amount of money. You will never get a check you will not make any money. He also says that he is a AR for def jam. He is not. You can call the label yourself they have never heard of him.

He can't get you a record deal Ive talked to multiple people he has managed they have all fired him they made no money didn't get a deal from him and wasted their time and energy just like me. It's a scam point blank period. If it sounds too good to be true it is too good to be true. Don't be a sucker just listen and run as fast as you can from him.

Goldie's continuing his lies

AUTHOR: NobleSea - (United States of America)

I'd like to respond to each one of these links because its so obvious that they are all false and don't prove anything.  

Link #1: You don't manage Travis Royce anymore. He fired you about six months ago. I reached out to Travis Royce and his management team about 9 months ago and they told me they were upset with the fact that you had promised them all these things and weren't delivering. Then I got an email from them (completely unsolicited) around July and they told me they were terminating your services. 

Link #2: This company is a scam. You'd have to be retarded not to see that. 

Link #3: Having a Yatedo link that says A&R doesn't mean a d**n thing. All Yatedo does is collect information about you on the web, regardless of whether or not its true. I could write that I play for the Washington Redskins on 50 websites and Yatedo would list me as an employee of the Washington Redskins. Can you explain why Jay Z is also listed on their as Def Jam's president even though he left the label in 2008. 

Please Please PLEASE stop scamming artists and go out and get a job like the rest of us. Taking advantage of artists who are impressionable and just trying to do whatever they can to get ahead is really disgusting and we're all going to continue to work to make sure you're not allowed to do this to another artist ever again.

He was terminated by one of our people

AUTHOR: Amber Glass - (United Kingdom)

This guy Michael Goldie Mack Greaux was terminated by Lord Hector Diono, one of our business partners in the United States. Apparently he contacted Hector seeking a job as artist management and according to Hector, he seemed legit enough, but as time went on he proved to be more evasive in his duties as an artist manger in addition to representatives in the music industry Hector was already affiliated with, proved that he was a dishonest music rep,and subsequently fired by Lord Hector Diono who admits at the time he really needed no help from this person from the start,but was baiting and watching him for alleged underworld figures in British Columbia who had prior grievance with
Mr. Greaux; According to Hector, it was best to end the relationship before associates of the rapper decided to take action that  Hector says would not justify such a retaliation.

Goldie Mack you're going to get what you deserve one day

AUTHOR: NobleSea - (United States of America)

This man is a liar and a thief. He is also a coward who hides behind his bulls**t and knowingly takes money from people who barely have any to spare. 

He "managed" my band for a little while. Biggest waste of my time ever, he only contacted us when he needed money supposedly for "submission fees." Obviously that money was going into his pocket. 

Pathetic lying coward.

Goldie has a history of using fake accounts

AUTHOR: Trandall - (USA)

The post claiming to be artist is Michael Goldie Greaux.

You been with Def Jam since 1984 but nobody at the company knows you?

The legal department is advising artists that you are a scam/con yet you have job there?

You just so happen to have a criminal record of frauds?

Artists have reported giving you hundreds or thousands of dollars total for "submissions" to TV shows and commercials not even in production that you never got them work for. Please explain that.

You are a joke...We will be sure to write you letter and send you music to listen to when you are back in jail because you are committing fraud, theft, and about 3 other felonies with your current operation.

You need to go get job and stop pretending to be a Def Jam A & R and stop stealing peoples money. Your posting from fake accounts trick is old, you did the same thing on another site pretending to be Sha Money XL. You're a cornball and the worst kinda crook.

What kind of fool would pretend to be a Def Jam exec, use your REAL NAME, and think no one would find out you're a phony? Anybody can call Island Def jam and find out you never worked there so why try to keep up the lie?

STAY AWAY FROM THIS SCAM

What he said !!

AUTHOR: Scribecash - (United States of America)

What do have to say about your arrest for being a scam artist? How can you lie to innocent people ? How can you take advantage of someone else? You probably don't have a pot to piss in and sleep at your mothers house but you have the nerve to take someone else's pot? You should be ashamed of yourself I hope that God has mercy on your soul because I would not be so nice. At the end of the day do you feel pleased ripping someone off? Are you doing this because people have gotten over on you? I can't put myself in the mind of a criminal in a mind of a thief a man who steals from innocent human beings a man who feels they deserve something they haven't earned . You are a coward you are too lazy to work for something in your life so you take the easy way out and crook everyone else. You are a boy not a man.. A little boy crying for help because you can not lead yourself. You've been to jail before and you will go again all I have to say is don't drop the soap Goldie Mack because you are going to get everything you deserve

Goldie Mack SCAM! BE AWARE!

AUTHOR: Watchitpeople - (United States of America)

Really nice try Mr. Mack, you are using multiple accounts to hide things that you do?

From your post we can see that you are trying to find excuses for things that you do to innocent artists.

If you are artist from Bungalow Records, please tell us your name so we can check you...

We must say that person who wrote last post is very illiterate.

#9 UPDATE Employee

pure lies

AUTHOR: paid artist - (United States of America)

This man has managed me in the past and he kept all of his promises to me,he took my music and shopped it around and made me money off my music,money i would not have made on my own.Because one person didnt get the same results that i did then maybe your music was not any good bet you never thought of that.  This man had me rubbing elbows with major artists and getting tips from some of them.I am now signed to Bungalow records in california which is distributed by universal music group,Mr Mack pulled strings for me and got me my deal.   He charged me 20% of money that he made for me.I also got 2 television shows that used my music because of him.Mr Mack helped me in many ways,i must admit it took time but i got the results that i wanted.Just face it dude there are winners and losers out there everyone cant be a winner,if everyone had a record deal then who would be in the audience to watch the REAL artists perform.  Because you may have not gotten great results you should not slander a good person who works hard for the people he deals with,  How long were you with him?So straight up mister because you didnt get great results could it be you are in denial about your music and want to place the blame elsewhere?Jay z didnt become Jay z overnight,music takes time and you cant give up faith in your music or else you wont make it.It took me time but i am happy where i am at now.  You should have put up a link of your music and let people decide for themselves are you in denial instead of you thrashing a good guy.  I came to Nyc and saw Mr Mack giving back to the community,donating to senior centers and and teach a class getting kids into a real recording studio to record and keep them off the streets.   I saw this man in action with my own eyes,i dont know what you saw but you didnt see the same man.  I wish you the best in your music  buddy but you either have it or you dont,if you are good with or without a manager you will get heard and be known

Michael Greaux Goldie Mack SCAM! BE AWARE!

AUTHOR: Watchitpeople - (United States of America)

Watch it, Michael Greaux (Goldie Mack) is scammer!

We found out that he is asking everyone to sign to his "management" company but they have to pay him some money and sign fake contract. In the music industry if manager wants to take you under his wing, he shouldn't ask you for any money. Call other real management companies and ask if they charge artists on beginning. If someone asks you to give him money on beginning, RUN! Its 100% scam!

He is also telling people that he works at Def Jam Records, nobody in Def Jam or Universal Music Group ever heard about him. He is also telling people that he manages major artists, we couldn't find anything about that on internet. No interviews, no pictures, no videos...

Only thing that he has is Linkedin profile, that anyone can make. You can open same Linkedin profile and type current position of your job: Def Jam A&R.

Open your eyes and don't believe everything that someone tells you. If its too good to be truth, RUN!!

We found out from Corporation & Business Entity Database (New York City), that Goldie Mack Artist Management NYC is not even registered company. We called their office and they confirmed that company is not registered. We think that this is just invented "company" for scamming people.

We called Universal Music Group, Def Jam Records and they don't know anyone by name of Michael Greaux (Goldie Mack), isn't that little bit strange? We contacted one important person from Interscope Records who is really mad what Goldie Mack is doing to naive artists. He sells them stories about getting record deals, how their music is really good, just to lure them and get their money for fake management deal. He is offering every artist that "deal" so you can pull out some conclusions. If someone asks you for money upfront it is a scam.

Anyone who got many "friends" (connections) on Linkedin page can get number of recommendations he got. If you have 500+ friends on linkedin at least 50 of them will write something good about you even they never heard about you or they don't know what are you doing. If you put def jam a&r in current position on linkedin, every artist on linkedin will add you as friend, anyone can do that.

If someone is that popular manager, and manages famous  artists as he says, we think that he should have some pictures with famous artists, interviews, videos or something that could proof that he is legit. All other A&R's have that.

Since we couldn't find anything, we know that this is just another money taking business (scam) from naive artists. We also found out that artists have to pay him to get "signed" to fake "management
company"? They pay for what?

Goldie Mack, tells us on which album credits are you? We can easily read credits from that album and see if you are telling the truth or lies...

For example, go to his twitter page http://twitter.com/goldiemack1019 and you will see what kind of tweets he does. He will probably delete it after reading this.

He is offering everyone fake management deal for management company that don't even exists, just to get "contract" fee from naive artists. He is saying to every artist: "your music is great", "your are talented", "I can get you a record deal" and stuff like that, just to attract naive artists who believe that he can do something for them.

Don't give this person your money, because he won't do anything he says. There is no Def Jam, Universal or any other record label behind him. Wake up people, don't believe everything he says to you, if its too good to be truth, run!

If someone asks you for money upfront, run! He just wants to scam you.

You can read more posts from people that he scammed on this link:

http://mugshots.com/US-Counties/Florida/Broward-County-FL/Phillip-M-Greaux/details/

As you can see, he was in jail for FRAUD-CREDIT-CARD, GRAND THEFT,300 L/5,000, TRAFFIC IN STOLEN PROPERTY, FEL/DELI W/GUN/CONC WPN/AMMO.

We think that this tells everything about him. Be aware, don't get scammed!
Just to make sure he don't remove that somehow from mugshot website, we will post screenshots of his crimes.
