Axiom America Unknowledgeable, Inexperienced to Repairing Equipment they Sell/ Horrible Customer Service DEVON Pennsylvania
If you could bear with me for a few minutes I'd like to paint our frustrating picture for you and the entire experience we have had since making our purchase with AXIOM AMERICA. We purchased two printers from Axiom the first week in January 2016, one of the biggest mistakes we have ever encountered is Axiom! We purchased both the Mimaki TS300 and a Mutoh JV900 in the same purchase order. Fuzion put 50% down, making a wire transfer on January 25th. We were so excited to take possession of both printers on February 9th, 2016. Between Feb 9th and approximately 2nd or 3rd WEEK in March several service techs from Axiom traveled to set up the printer. From what we came to understand the initial tech Axiom sent was not educated on the MIMAKI TS300 and the ink was run through the wrong lines and, obviously, the printer was not up and running when he left our shop. When the next service tech came to our shop the last week of February/first week of March he was so angry at the condition of our BRAND NEW printer. He told us the ink was running through the wrong locations and he had to flush the entire system. Over the next several weeks Techs from Axiom came out to get it up and running. At one point we were told our NEW Mimaki would need a new main board BEFORE we ever even got one print from it. At this point we asked Axiom for a NEW Mimaki TS300 in exchange for this one.. Because with all the errors that were made by the Axiom installation techs we felt we had a defective machine. I didn't want a rebuild. We didn't know what problems their mistakes would cause in the long run. Axiom told us they would not replace it. At this point I contacted MIMAKI DIRECTLY and our Rep, Steve was to bring in Mimaki's tech. in which we have much gratitude. We still had to go through Axiom to get registration information, dongle key code, etc. before we could fully use the printer. AND WE WERE BILLED AND PAID FOR THE FLUSHING SOLUTION to clean out the erroneous ink streams. One week after warranty we had problems with the printer stopping mid-print and we were told we needed a new motor. The service call was a minimum is $600 + travel, labor and parts. Fuzion is a one man show. Our output is not huge volumes and we do this because we love it. Ideally, we would love to grow our business and have been talking about adding additional printers and heat presses. Tom has the clientele but he is still paying off two printers that are not running - the MUTOH didn't run from day one buy AXIOM blamed our IT for messing with them when attempting to get them running. Two weeks ago the Mimaki started banding badly (I'm unsure if I'm explaining it correctly) but there are lines running through the prints every 1/2 or so. Tommy ran several head cleaning but it wasn't helping and it seemed like the black printer head was clogged. With several very angry clients because Tom was running behind due to the motor, I sent Axiom a service requisition because we needed someone out quickly. The tech came out, soaked the head IN SOLVENT!!!!, THE WORSE THING YOU CAN DO - IT IS ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE SOAKED IN WARM WATER). The tech ran tests and we were up and running again, $1,000 later. After 3 or 4 days the same thing started happening again and we were told it needs a new printer head. A $3,200 part. Tom is able to get a few prints from it after running it through cleaning again and again but he is wasting so much consumables. We NEVER want to work with Axiom EVER again! Just a side note so you know how Axiom is so dedicated to their clients the Mutoh hasn't given us more than 20-25 prints since it was installed. After installation (at the same time of the Mimaki) they ran test prints and they would come out fine. After a couple days it stopped printing. Our tech would call their tech and they insist that our tech did something wrong. When Tom or our tech would call for help Axiom would refer us to Ergosoft (software), Erosoft would refer us to Mutoh, Mutoh said it was an Axiom problem and around we go. For an entire year we have probably logged on 80-100+ hours with techs, all of which pass the buck. When Axiom's tech was out for the Mimaki he told us that the MUTOH needed a new main board. I guess the problem is that the printer and computers are not playing nice and one doesn't recognize the other. However Axiom, just last week, offered to sell the Mutoh for us and they would give us an excellent price for a new printer! With both issues with the MIMAKI AND MUTOH we went directly to the manufacturers. Both companies sent out Service Techs from their local offices and we didn't have to go to a 3rd party and more importantly we never have to see AXIOM again.

Axiom Research LLC Mystery Shopper Scam Emeryville, California
This is a mystery shopper scam! The check they send you bounces after one day of being cleared, which is all the window they give you to complete your assignment. First assignment is to wire transfer more than half of the check amount to some nobody overseas, then use the rest at WalMart or Home Depot. The next day, your bank will recall that check and you're stuck with the huge overdraft. I've printed out everything to do with this company on their website and will be filing a police report.

Axiom Infoservices Exclusive Insurance Leads Axiom Infoservices Exclusive Insurance Leads a Major Ripoff California
I paid this fraudulent company that is run by a bunch of crooked Indians $500 via Paypal to use their exclusive live health leads for my health insurance business. I never heard from them after paying them online. I called them later in the day and was informed that they were no longer accepting orders and would be refunding my money in 3-4 days. I did not receive a refund and called the merchant again. I was informed that he (would not tell me his name) was on the phone and would call me back. He never returned my call, which is very unprofessional of any business person. A week and a half has passed now and I have not received a refund. I contacted the merchant today and politely informed the man who answered of the situation. He hung up on me when I was explaining it to him. I called back and he said he would call me back in 15 minutes. He never did and now I can not get anyone on the phone over there to answer. They do not even have a voice mail system in place. How unprofessional can this business get? Do these foreigners think that they can get away with stealing in this country? Bobby Atlanta, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Axiom Advertising is not your average type of scam, but scam none the less Girard, Ohio
If you have ever searched on monster, career builder, or craigslist for a job, it's probably inevitable that you have stumbled across a Sports Marketing! or Entry Level Marketing! 3 Positions available for immediate hire!  And upon reading the job description it sounds enticing, saying that you could make $400-1000/wk.  This is a word to the wise, to avoid it. Axiom Advertising claims to be a marketing firm.  They lead potential employees (and I use the term lightly, because in it is not specified in their help wanted ads that it is a contractual position) to believe that they will be marketing sports teams or golf courses or spas, when in actuality they are selling coupons door to door.  On your first interview, you will go in, fill out an application (which still leads you to believe that you are going to be 'hired') although this step in the process is highly unwarranted considering that you will be asked, regardless of what your application says, to come back in for a second interview.  Still all the while, wondering what exactly it is that you will be doing.  Linda, the owner, (if you're lucky enough to actually interview with her, otherwise one of her office workers) will have vaguely explained to you what the job entails by showing you a portfolio of the different companies that they work with, but still all the while being extremely and purposefully vague about the actual job itself.  She will then ask you to come back for a second interview, which actually entails going out in the field with a team leader, aka someone who has fallen for the manipulation.  For an entire day, from 7:30am until roughly 5:30-6pm maybe even later depending, you will walk around with this team leader as they go door to door selling coupons.  Once you are hired, which, more than likely you will be because the retention rate of personal sales people at Axiom is extremely low (that should be your first tip off), you will being to learn about Linda's theory on the law of averages.  Basically she states that the more businesses that you go to, the more sales you will get.  She then will have you train on a pitch to say when you walk into a business to try to get more sales.  She claims that she is teaching entry level marketing skills and that sometimes there are just people who can't do the job. The truth of the matter is, I am a marketing major, who apparently couldn't do the job because my sales there weren't anywhere near minimum wage, and were definitely not anywhere close to the money that I was making at serving.  Which, if you want to really consider, is a base pay + commission sales job.  As a marketing major, I have come to learn over the years that the best way to sell a product to people is to be honest, helpful, understanding and empathetic towards your customer.  In real marketing, we like to call that Consumer Relationship Management.  In reality, the entire position that you will hold at Axiom was based on manipulation, dishonesty, and a complete ignorance to the entire idea of empathy.  As many of the other reports have said, Linda is full of criticisms, and not constructive ones, and she is full of dishonesty and manipulation.  She manipulates everyone who works with her.  If this is how a company treats it's employees, how are you to expect the employees to learn true marketing techniques and to understand consumer relationship management/marketing.  Another aspect of marketing that Linda truly misses the dot on is the idea of a target market.  To those without marketing background, or business background, a company typically will conduct market research, finding a market segment, and then a target market.  A specific group of consumers who, based on their demographics, are the consumers that a company wishes to sell it's products to.  A company will do this to cut down the excess costs of marketing to people who are not in the target market.  But guess what, when you hire contracted sales people who are paid solely on commission, you don't have to worry about those excess costs, because guess who fronts them?  Not Linda. I won't even get into the other aspects of this company, you can read those on the other reports here, but I feel like I had to bring up the other aspects of where this company is a scam.  No, it's not your typical scam where they take your money and run with it, bu instead they take your time, that you could be out finding a more legitimate job, or working at a more legitimate job.  Instead of applying at Axiom, I suggest applying at Verizon or AT&T selling phones, or at Best Buy, where the companies have a solid idea on what marketing truly is, and because they provide base pay onto of commission are willing to help train you in the correct methods of professional selling.  Shy away from this one!

Axiom Motors Unable to decide on price and aggressive in approach Brandon Florida
 I come to you today after my original purchase about 4 and a half years ago from Axiom Motors. My ex also purchased her car from them after I had gotten mine. Then, I purchased a 2003 Camry and I was financed through their CAC bank for an incredible interest rate but I had no other options at the time. The Camry has been paid off and I’ve been interested in a newer car. These guys were pretty fair before and I wanted to bring my business back to them. They had a 2007 Audi A4 with 80,000 miles and I was told by Mr. Potter it was 12,900$. Which was a bit above KBB (when priced out as being sold by dealership used its actually valued at 11,000$). I went back in yesterday to speak with George, Generally if you have questions he's offstandish and has an underlying attitude he tries to control but seeps through. Upon arriving he told me that the car was actually 16,900 dollars and that the cash price is 14,900$ that it couldn’t have been right and must have included my trade in. Which my car at that point has never actually been looked at for trade-in value. He tried to get me to pay 475$ a month for the car and I told him no. He said he would talk to Potter and see what they could do. They refused to change the price of the car to be fairer and claimed that the bank decides on the price of the car. I never realized that a bank has the ability to declare a value of a car grossly above its actual market and suggest retail value by Audi themselves. George got very short on the phone because he wasn't just getting a blind sale. All of their cars are overpriced for the actual car you get. In the end I would have been paying almost 25,000 for the car after all the interest and inflated price. I will be taking my business somewhere else and this post will be on all car dealer review sites. I've also sent in a review for the BBB. Good Luck Guys.

AXIOM COMMERCIAL FUNDING, JAMES SOARING EAGLE VONDA Axiom Commercial Funding is a rippoff!! Never send them money!! even if they claim that your loan has been approved!! LEONARD Texas
Axiom Commercial Funding was interested in my loan that was submitted on a real estate web site through a mortgage broker. They found out all of the details and approved us for 377,000. After many phone calls and Emails to us, they assured us that after we paid them a site fee of 1% that within 10 to 14 days we would close on our loan. We paid them a total of $3770.00, and they actually did send their Underwriter James Soaring Eagle Vonda out to our hotel for 3 days. He looked around doing his site visit for a total of maybe 1 hour. He left ( never paying his hotel bill that totalled over $500.00) and as I said before was supposed to have our loan ready to close in 10 to 14 days. From this point all calls and emails got fewer and fewer. We had to initiate all contact. They had a excuse for everything as to why it was taking longer than they said, from the appraisal had to be redone, which it was, a new survey, which it was, waiting on the underwriter, which is James Vonda and he said it was done to anything else under the sun. Finally, they said that the reason for not closing was that they were not licensed in the state we are in, but they had applied for a license 2 weeks prior and it should only be a few more days. After a few more days went by, I called the state to find out the status of their license, and of course the state had never heard of them. I also have since found out that they claim to have been in business for 35 years and are a 300 million dollar corporation, none of which is true.After contacting them and asking about this lie, that was the last contact we had with them. No more emails, no more phone calls, until I sent a email threatening to have Mr. Vonda put in jail and the company exposed as a fraud. He then responded, promising to refund my money, however at this time he has not. He has every excuse now of why it is going to take a little longer, he needs the bank info to wire the money, etc. Then he offered to repay the money in installments of $500.00 per month, still haven't gotten a dime back. I have since recieved emails from several others that have gotten taken by this outfit. NEVER SEND THEM MONEY, or your chances of getting the loan or your Site fee back are slim to none.I have every email from these creeps to prove every word I am saying. Has anyone on this planet ever closed a loan with this company? If so I would love to hear from you. Axiom commercial funding fighter anytown, KentuckyU.S.A.

AXIOM ADVERTISING: New Dawn Distribution/ Innovage, Smart Circle, Quantum, ex DS-Max/ Granton Scam job in Girard, Ohio. BEWARE owner Linda Barton! Check out their multiple ads on careerbuilder.com --- ALL LIES! Scam, Rip-off, Communist tactics, Sensationalism. Girard, Ohio
Axiom Advertising... sounds like a dream job, right? Here... it's just door to door sales. Their ads on the internet are VERY misleading.  Actually, as I write this I notice their advertisement on careerbuilder has changed.  When I responded to it a few Months ago the ad actually claimed I'd be making $400-$600.00 a wk. base pay.  Now their ad just says: Pay based on personal attributes.  Ha! Yeah, can you sell anything?  If not, you get no pay because this job is straight commission ONLY!  They hire you in and have you fill out an independent contractor form and this basically tells you that you will not be paid hourly, you will not receive any kind of compensation for fuel or wear & tear on your car (if you have a car... it's not a requirement), and that you are responsible for your own taxes. What's shady as H*ll though is the fact that when you're there your first week and you get negged out because you made little to no sales, your team leader pays you $50 bucks in hopes that you will stay and not quit.  This comes right out of the team leader's profits, NOT the Owner's (Linda Barton) or the Company that Axiom represents: I N N O V A G E.  To me that is rediculous and that is EXACTLY what you, the new guy, should look forward to doing with YOUR profits should you become a Team Leader.  So basically, look forward to being broke, worrying about how you're going to pay for gas, how you're going to pay a doctor if you need to because you have no insurance.  And if you have a Family depending on you, forget about it !!!  You will NOT be able to afford a d*mn thing !!!Atmosphere room is I N S A N E !!!  You are not allowed to speak negatively about sales the day before or about anything at all.  They will pull you to another room and ask you what the h*ll your problem is... OR they will ridicule you in front of everyone for having a dissenting opinion.  It happened to me once, where I learned to never speak anything negative or doubtful.  For instance, I sold nothing the day before and I asked Linda in front of everyone why She sent me and this new guy to an area that had already been worked.  She said, No territory is bad territory, that territory hasn't been worked until you worked it, there's no such thing as a bum territory... just a bum in the territory.  Thanks Linda, that boosted my confidence nothing.  She then goes on to say that I should keep my mouth shut, I have a habit of putting my foot in my mouth.  Later, during an impact she left little cues like If you can't sell you should just quit.  My question is: Why is DEMOGRAPHICS not calculated into the law of averages???  Answer: I think you should quit putting your foot in your mouth and pay attention to what the high-rollers do.  And that's laughable, the so called high-rollers are in the other half of the Company, New Dawn Distribution selling China made Toys, CD cases, boxes of hot rocks, Pillows, Teddy Bears, etc. making a maximum of $80 bucks a day - MAYBE! If they're in good territory.  What the AXIOM half of the business focuses on is certificates and City books.  The City books are in competition with all the School kids that sell the Entertainment Books (which is actually a MUCH better value) and the certs are buy one get one free golf, spa, oil changes - 4 for the price of 1, Lake Erie Monster seats, water park discounts, etc.  Selling the certs is not that dishonorable of a job, but selling merch (merchandise), you honestly have to check your ego at the door.  I mean, you got two armfuls of junk, you're trying to open a door, the sh*t falls, people laugh, you clown around about it, they laugh at the generic quality of your wares, you get several no's, you look at them like their crazy for saying no and it's off to the next door... interrupting their business. Another thing I want to point out: You need a Vendor's licence to sell this crap to the public.  Those cost a lot of money!!  Axiom does not have one, but most importantly, as an independent contractor, if you get busted and fined... YOU have to pay for it !!! The owner Linda Barton will not help the new guy out.  Her philosophy is Social Darwinism: Only the Strong Survive, Eat or be Eaten, Kill or be Killed.  Empathy or compassion for independent contractors is NOT her cup of tea!!! To learn more about AXIOM Advertising and Linda Barton, just read Steve's Rip-off Report from 2004 on NEW DAWN DISTRIBUTION.  Linda actually gives a rebuttal thinking Steve is Ed, revealing personal stuff about Ed in the coldest display of vengeance I ever read.  A MUST SEE !!!And remember, Don't get sucked into this wack, 10-13 hr. day long, less than minimum wage, greed obsessed cult unless you like being brainwashed and living in homeless shelters with the rest of her independent contractors.

Eric Pulizzano Axiom 13 STOLE $500 and DID NOTHING TO CREATE A WEBSITE Valrico, Florida
Eric Pulizzano (if that is his REAL name) at Axiom 13 is a thief and a liar. He promised to set up a website for my daughter, took her $500, did NOTHING, now won't return the money or return calls or emails. Stay away from this scumbag.  He may operate under another name as it looks like there are prior ripoff reports for his previous business name. L-O-S-E-R Shame on him.  What goes around comes around, and I hope he is miserable one day.

Level 13 Media Axiom 13,, ENP Interactive, Eric and Nicole Snow Harassment and scam Valrico Florida
These people operate under various names and business names (Axiom 13 and ENP Interactive.) Their website says they've been in business since 1996 however, this domain has only been registered for about a year. They have an address listed in LA as: Registrant Organization: Level 13 Media Inc. Registrant Street: 1230 Midvale Avenue Registrant City: Los Angeles Registrant State/Province: California Registrant Postal Code: 90024 Registrant Country which appears to possibly be a parking lot though mutiple ISP traces lead them to the Valrico address. They also operate under the last name Snow and have complaints on scamexposure.com under Eric Pulizzano. A search of this site revealed they have a police report against them too in California and they have a West Florida BBB report about them online saying they were paid to do work and didn't deliver it.

Axiom Laundry / Ramblewood East Condos The laundry service is horrible. Not only are the machines not maintained regularly, if you have a complaint or lose money in the machines, the association refers you to Axiom that will then find any reason not to refund your money. As owners and renters, we need to put pressure on the board to change laundry providers and boycott the laundry rooms until we have a new laundry service. coral springs Florida
I was having an issue with the laundry service.  i went to the association but all they do is refer you to Axiom.  Then Axiom turns around and find any reason not to refund your money.  We should boycott the lanudry rooms and put pressure on the board to find a new laundry service provider.  The machines are not maintained as they should be and are only looking to rip us off.

Norax Nutracuticals Axiom, Metaugus, Natural Products Analytics group, Jay Connaughton. Deceit, scam Lies Lies, Deceit, Scam, Multiple Companies, Bad quotes, Newman Georgia
Norax Supplements, Axiom Nutraceuticals, Metaugus Inc, Natural Analytics Group, are all operated by Jay Connaugton, and it seems to be a complex scam. While looking for a supplement manufacturer, I was almost taken in by Norax's low quotes and big promises. Fortunately, I caught one of their mistakes, when they invoiced me for the product and it had both Axiom's name and Noraxes name on the invoice. My freelance Rep Caroline, told me that she worked for several different supplement manufacturers, and since Axiom was hard to work with, she told me that we should work with Norax instead, because it was a better company. So, at this point,  I was supposed to be dealing with Norax, NOT AXIOM. I took  a picture of the invoice, with my phone, and the next time I went to look at the electronic invoice, they had caught their mistake and changed it to Norax, of course both had the same address,  I also have a picture of that. That made me feel a bit queazy and I knew something was very wrong. I immedietly began an indepth search and found that all four companies were operated by Jay Connaughton. And that the address provided to me as the address for Norax Supplements, LLC at 37 Calumet Parkway, Building P, Suite 100, Newman GA 30263 was some kind of Hotel or small office building. I searched the Indiana based Natural Analytics Group, address  2116 W Industrial Dr. Bloomington, IN 47404 and found a building with the Metaugus, Inc Logo on it. It was a medium sized pole building with 3 cars by it. Not exactly the huge company I was led to believe existed... And wasn't Metaugus supposed to be in Georgia??? I also looked up AXIOM ATLANTA HEADQUARTERS. 33 Herring Road Newnan, GA 30265. Nothing made any sense, as there were no buildings at the Norax addresses or the Axiom addresses. The only real building I ever found was the pole barn, Metaugus Inc, in Indiana. It was all so strange. I'm sure all this could have a reasonable explaination but that doesn't account for their Quotes!  Ironically, I received 3 other quotes shortly after deciding to put everything on hold while my research of Norax continued.  Not only were their quotes much higher, they required that my product be in 6 capsules. while Jay insisted that each product would fit into one capsule per serving. Yet,  I had repeatedly asked Jay Connaughton through my account Rep, Caroline Leedom, if they were sure my product would fit into only 1 capsule, they assured me that Jay had been doing this for years and YES my new supplements would each fit into 1 capsule. I questioned my other company reps and they assured me that my ingredient list could NEVER fit into 1 capsule and that any company who said otherwise was lying. As I reread my emails/quotes from Caroline and Jay, and compared them to my previous Axiom quotes,  I realised other oddities. My Norax quotes were all about  $2.00 cheaper per item than the  Axiom quotes AND my four products although very different in ingredients and in a quantities were all within pennies of eachother. None of my other quotes from reputable manufacturers followed a similar pattern. My experience with Jay and his companies was very negative. It is obvious to me that they are running some sort of scam. Only God knows what would have been in my products or how much damage they could have done to my reputation, or how many thousands of dollars I would have lost. Please research deeply into this man and his companies before trusting him. If I were you, I wouldn't trust him at all. In my opinion and experience he is a SCAMMER.
