Dr. Bizness BD- Profit and Growth Unlimited, LLC WGIV Radio, Bizness Barter Exchange, WDRB Media, Ernest Smith, m.biznessbarter.thetradealliance.com/, wdrbmedia.com/, profitandgrowthunlimited.com/home.html Complete Scam - Pay Them Monthly, Get Nothing Charlotte North Carolina
Complete scam.1. You pay them and then the hustle is you then scam others to pay for radio interviews you do for them - they get you for a 6 month contract and automatically charge you monthly. You get NOTHING for these fees. No one follows up with you - no one contacts you outside of fake trainings (see below)2. NO radio station and shows - streams on iheartradio and tunein to about 20 followers a week. They were not founded in 1947. WGIV radio which is now defunct was founded then. They were somehow associated with them which is partly responsible for that AM radio station being defunct now. 3. NO clear social media presence - the IG @wdrbmedia.radio (they have gone thru so many accounts) has 8k followers which they may have paid for because almost all of the posts are the new hosts standing in front of the step and repeat after their first training getting coached on how to say the business is so great - you literally get told what to say. Same for the facebook (https://www.facebook.com/WDRBmedia) you would think they would be promoting the radio shows, interviews, etc. These two media accounts did not exist beyond 2016.4. NO real customer service5. Ernest Smith will hustle you out of everything you have if you let him6. the barter exchange has like 5 items on it with no explanation but $25 a month?7. Continued to charge me even after my bank disputed their charges and my money was refundedThis organization for lack of a better word is a complete scam. I encountered them in May. I was a vendor at a health fair and was approached by a guest who was interested in interviewing me for a radio show. We exchanged cards and he reached out to me to schedule the interview. I went in for the interview and as I was in the waiting room, I noticed that the receptionist was making certain waiting people watch a video she played from a large screen on her desk. I also noticed that a man (Ernest Smith) I knew of personally came out of one of the offices and I was surprised to see him. I did the interview and the hosts were very nice but it was surprising. Even though I have never done radio work before, our interview was such that it could have been done in a home with a few mics from amazon. I did enjoy the interview but I started to feel leery like where is this really going. After the interview, I went out into the waiting room and realized something. I have a non profit project and I had received a flyer for free radio advertising at an event a few weeks prior and I realized that this was the same radio station with that offer. I asked the receptionist about it and she made me watch the video - a video about building wealth and some inspirational stuff. I was then ushered into an office and the man (Ernest Smith) I knew of personally walked in. I did make the mistake of trusting him because of where I knew him from - huge mistake. He proceeded to tell me how they have a business barter exchange, how I could have my own radio show and they have millions of listeners because they are nationally syndicated and they have a partnership with iheartradio. They offered me a month worth of advertising for my nonprofit project. I was looking to grow my business, honestly and the business barter exchange and my own short radio show seemed like a good idea at the time. Looking back, I see where and how he was trying to hustle me in his demeanor and his words. I ignored the flag that went off in my head because of who he was in my community. Big mistake.They got me for a 15 min radio show with a 6 month contract - which on later review cannot hold up legally but I will get to that. This was about $95 a month. They also got me for $25 a month for the business barter exchange. I was told to come back for an appointment in two days to get set up.I came back for the appointment - I should have known better. I met with a woman (she is one of the partners in this). She had a whole manual and all this stuff I had to fill out about my business. I had to watch all these videos on how to set up my account with the exchange. She kept telling me don't worry, they actually do the initial business set up for the barter and then I can add my items and services. I then went to the radio station side. Fill out a whole manual on radio training - like I agree to send in the recording of my show on time. Basically, if you record your show in the studio there are all these charges. Turns out, you could record your show on your cell phone!Now they teach you the structure - how to basically scam people. So the point of having your own show is so that you can charge people for the recording and/or video recording of their interview. As all this was happening, I was hit up over 20 times by the host for the initial interview I did, to pay $100 for audio and video of my interview. He wanted me to meet up with him and provide him with a flash drive and he would give me my recordings. I dodged him for a month and then declined. The man came in to tell me also, I could set up a partnership with another host to share the cost of the recording time fees. I was there for this training for a total of 5 hours with no break and was exhausted. At the end, they make you stand in front of their step and repeat while the woman records you with a tablet making positive statements about the radio station, the man (Ernest Smith) and the business barter. I now know they do it at the end of the training when your mind is mishmash so it doesn't seem odd to you.From there - I started to dig for info on this company - something I should have done in the beginning. I searched and found scam alerts. I couldn't find a definitive social media presence which was alarming. My interview wasn't promoted at all - the radio hosts I sat with barely had followers and didn't even list my interview or any other actually. Their youtube was non existent. They don't promote their hosts or anything. Additionally, I realized that basically they just stream over iheartradio and tunein - maybe 25 people listen a week. I wanted to cry. The business barter exchange website looks like it was made in 2000 and had very few listings. I couldn't even access my account for 3 weeks. I randomly got an email finally providing access after that. They said they were making a banner to promote my show for their website. I did not get an email for that until mid June even though I took the picture for it at the training (which I wasn't prepared for). They make you come for Saturday trainings once a month - media training they say. They also make you pay for media passes so that you can get into any event around the city free because you have this valuable media badge. They charge $25 for it. I did not get it. I went to the first Saturday training. It's 4 hours of hype on how to hustle people to pay for you to interview them. After that experience, I knew I was done. I sent several emails demanding to cancel my contract which were never responded to. They charged me for the first month and I let it go. I was mentally preparing myself to lose $600+ on this terrible deal. They didn't charge me for July at all and then charged me in August. I disputed the charges and I won - getting refunded by my bank. They had the nerve to try and charge me again a week ago. I disputed that as well and my bank cancelled my card so that they can't charge it.

He is telling people that they have thousands of listeners, which is NOT true at all. People are being sucked into contracts with this man, paying money for airtime, when it is all a scam. They have no listeners besides the people who have shows - and maybe their family members.   People need to get facts - and not from Dr. Bizness' staff, but do the leg work themselves, instead of believing what is being said to them.   That money could go to something else then a crook and a thief. I know this as a FACT and if you have a show on WGIV - its NOT on the radio anymore - not in NC or SC - its all free internet radio, and trust me, nobody is logging on to that station. The YouTube shootouts are all fake - the positive feedbacks are all fake...stop being so easily tricked by scammers.   Does the leg work. You don’t have to believe me, but do the Google Analytics and you will see....there are no listeners. Maybe 20 - 25 people a WEEK. Why are you paying for these shows? You would be better off paying for your OWN radio station. Not just show.   Don’t Be Tricked,   Are you giving or considering giving Ernest Smith AKA Dr. Bizness, BD money for internet radio? If so, you better ask yourself why? Profit and Growth Unlimited has no affiliation with any of the established broadcasting networks they claim, such as ABC.   They aren't even recognized by the Better Business Bureau. Sometimes they claim to have 2.4 million listeners, sometimes they claim to have 40 million listeners. This is a farce! As you can see, even the Face book page barely has 100 likes, and the tune in radio app had 70 followers before buying Facebook Likes(people who have tuned in on at least one occasion) last time I checked.   Did you think WGIV was affiliated with 103.3 FM?

Before you give these people your hard earned money, look at the facts.   If you are offered a job with the monthly earning potential $5,000 (commission only, collected by you, based on your ability to scam small businesses and individuals) you will also be required to pay hundreds of dollars out of pocket to Mr. Smith for every month that you are working with them, (even though you will most likely make nothing).

Greg's Body Shop ,owned By Bizness, Greg's Body Shop ripoff Joliet Illinois
I have a 1986 300ZX which needed both Quarter panels replaced. His price was fair, at $4200, including painting the rest of the vehicle. He replaced only the driver's side panel, and pulled out the passenger side panel. The replaced panel was used, and is not aligned properly, making it very difficult to close the door. The passenger side panel was pulled out and obviously Bondoed, and is not the correct contour. This one used panel cost $1200 while 2 NEW panels from Nissan cost $1000. The entire car was also painted to avoid a color match problem, and it is painted the wrong color. It was to be #218, a dark pewter, yet it turned out to be a very light silver with primer showing through. Paint is beginning to fall off the vehicle, and many interior fasteners were missing. The entire job needs to be redone, with a cost from a competent shop of $7200. DO NOT USE THIS BODY SHOP. Mitch Plainfield, IllinoisU.S.A.

This is a phony barter exchange that only seeks to get your personal banking and credit information behind the facade of legitimate barter exchange.  Within 30 days of joining MBE my credit card was maxxed out and my checking account hit with identity theft. I had to spend over $10,000 to clear my name. I was then told by the police in New Jersey that this gang has been prosecuted and fined many times but they keep operating from various offices and never publish their address. They use an 800 number that is always call-forwarded. See these links for proof they have been doing this since 2006:http://www.ripoffreport.com/telemarketers/merchants-barter-exc/merchants-barter-exchange-ste-6c4ec.htm(((link redacted)))(((link redacted)))(((link redacted)))(((link redacted)))(((link redacted)))(((link redacted)))I was told that I am one of just several hundred people whose identity was stolen after signing up with Merchants Barter Exchange by the police. I find it incredible that their successful business started in 2003 cannot publish an office address on their web site nor provide a non-toll-free telephone number that can be traced. I spoke with J. Niggeman in Lancaster who told me it took his lawyer and private investogator more than 3 months just to find Steve Bolles to serve him his law suit. According to corporate records, MBE has changed their official address six times in the last two years. There is also a Steve Robert Bolles wanted in Maine and Connecticut for Insurance and Bank Fraud, but I have no way to prove this is the same guy. I originally heard of this company from a radio talk show, but when I complained to the radio station manager, I was told the radio talk show was really an advertisement that was scripted by MBE. His wife Marti and Steve both profess to be born again Christians but this is now clearly a ruse to disarm people. Why this man is allowed to scam people for 4 years remains a mystery to me and I now wonder who he may be related to!  Niggeman said that Bolles lives in a multi-million dollar home near Tannersville, Pa, but since the house is not in his name, victims have no way to get legal recourse. I think this Bolles character studied under Bernie Madoff.  Super slick shyster for sure!  CLICK here to see why Rip-off Report, as a matter of policy, deleted either a phone number, link or e-mail address from this Report.

Merchants Barter Exchange MBE, Merchant's Barter Exchange barter, bartering Internet
Anthony Donelly hired me to do blogs.. and said they will pay me 150 weekly to blog.  Well, that never happened . Turns out they wanted me to work for barter. .Not only  that, I had to chase Merchants Barter Exchange for a month trying to get my 'exchange pay' then the top fellow called me and said how sorry he was that I was not properly compensated. He promised to send me 300 then called and said all he could afford was 240.00 .. and that there was a computer being sent. To this day, I have not received the rest of items that go with the computer I have a tower( cpu)  a keyboard and wireless mouse I have no plugs or monitor to test this machine. The owner emailed me couple months ago said he was getting the IT department to send the rest. That never happened. If how they send their payment to employees is proof of what they do with clients, I would say Stay away I held my tongue a couple months already and feel that's long enough! There is something shady about a company that tells it's employees that it will pay by barter weekly and then have 1000 and 1  excuses of why they can't pay.   I am presently blogging for another company that paid me right away.. I know that blogging I did for Merchant's Barter Exchange was good as I got responses in my email box for the blogs I posted. Some of the blogs are still on the net. Thing about blogs is: they keep working long after the blog is written!

Avoid doing business with WGIV 103.3 here in Charlotte NC. Found the Services to be less then mutually beneficial . They just collect money every month by providing less then quality air time. Lost more money doing business over the years with this station then ever. This is very common with the reputation that they have and will always have. Most Muslims groups are associated with this station that was once a gospel station. Found other stations to be more helpful other then this QVC Station called WGIV. MAKE SURE YOU ARE NOT PAYING YOUR MONEY FOR AIRTIME which is what they want all the time. Valuable services are worth money not dump holes with microphones. Couldn't get my money back and was offered no refunds. People are on drugs most of the time, and no one should be feeding a person with bad habits that hurt the community.

DO NOT fall for his lies or his scams this guy is profiting of other people by lying to them, he told us that he was going to get us in front of record labels, and a whole bunch of lies, I hope if you find this you take my advice! Justin Lanno is a scam and he deserves to pay for what hes doing to people!

Barter Business Exchange, Inc. What barter? They want members to pay to be members and then pay monthly fees! Cary, North Carolina
Barter is not much of a barter if you have to pay hefty fees to belong to an organization and then pay monthly fees. I lost all the money I paid into it and after joining did not find anyone want ting to do business with each other. Found another business who was frustrated with BBE's system as well. My advice: save the money and don't join unless they offer completely barter-based system with no money involved.

He told me to ,mail a check for 4997- I had asked to send a credit card, but he informed me that he gets hit hard with fees for that payment, so we agreed to send a check- he signed the check over to another party, and the day after, his linked in site, phone contact, and business website were deleted.   After doing a search on a site , we found out that Mr. Parkin also goes by the name Paul McQuillan, and several complaints were made in the same line as we did- but for alot less than we lost... 5000 dollars lost, is crippling to our business

M&E Transportation Services, LLC Ernest Lafleur (Owner) Abandoned Driver, Didn't Compensate Driver, Fuel Tax Issues Richmond Texas
 I am writing this in the hopes that any driver researches this company before wasting thier time. I don't recommend anyone deal with this company or the gentleman who owns it. I left a decent job with the promise of something better; turns out it was nothing but a waste of time and I have yet to be compensated for all my work. I began working for M&E on 6/5/17 (officially). Prior to this, I was asked to recover two trucks (one in Houston, Texas and one in Brenham, TX). See pay Log... Pay Log: 5/18/17 $60.00 recover truck from frightliner Houston, TX deliver to Rosenberg, TX 6/2/17 $120.00 recover truck from Brenham, TX to Rosenberg, TX (Double trip no keys with truck). Only compensated for original trip. 6/ 12/17 $718.00 This was a 1099 gig but I still kept track of any wages paid. Let me detail the issues. 1) After I was hired, I was told I needed to download an app for load assignments and tracking. This app ate up data at a rate that caused my monthly allowance to be depleted in a week and a half. 2) Submitting invoices was also an issue due to data requirements. Bills had to be scanned and emailed to the company M&E was contracted to as well as M&E. 3) I was told after the fact that a weeks pay would be withheld which was strange for a small company. 4) No IFTA was found. I didn't know this till I was cited in Mississippi for M&E not paying fuel Taxes. 5) I was called repeatedly by M&E as well as the company he was contracted to during my 10 hour break. 6) After asking about my pay, I was abandoned in Monroe, on 6/21/17, LA by M&E. He contacted a local tow company to take possession of the truck while enroute to deliver a load. I was told that I would be compensated to get home. Never happened! 7) Fuel cards were shut off after the first week and fuel was paid for with Comchecks. I was never compensated for that load or the two loads prior to this. This seems to be standard operating procedure for this business entity.

Merchant's Barter Exchange Ripped Me Off Took Product/Never Paid Lied Internet
This guy Steve is slick.  He comes into your new business and promises to make life so much easier for your business.  He offers trade with other businesses instead of using cash.  He told me he was a Christian, and that he had ten kids. I was very skeptical, because it sounded to good to be true.  He said..It sounds that way, because it works.  He then told me that I did NOT have to sign a contract with him, so that he would show me he was a man of honor. This is FAR from the truth.  No integrity whatsoever.  He called me one day, and said, Are you ready for your first trade? I said yes.  He told me that he needed 10 meal orders, and that he would be by to get them shortly.  I didn't put two and two together, but yes.  I afterwards remembered that he told me he had a familty of 10.  I guess I got burnt and their meal was on me. I called him numerous times thereafter, with no return call from him.  I left a message for him stating I saw all these negative reports on the web about him.  I also told him that I saw that he went to jail for what he is doing. He called me back, tried to justify it all by saying..I'm not hiding from anyone, I still live in the same house, go to the same church...yadda yadda.....All told, stay away from this clown. Yes, he is educated, and talks real smoothe.  But at the end of the day, you will get burnt.  His wife and kids must be proud.

ES Cartwright LLC Ernest Cartwright Ernest promises the moon and delivers nothing but debt. Los Angeles California
I believe Goomby had it right and was placated with half truths to let go of their complaint and possibly spooked by a straw pony Attorney.  Ernest Cartwright promised the moon, took our money and delivered nothing except debt. HIs web site is just a lure to people seeking his type of skills needed to market a TV product. Ernest is a master at grooming his victims. In the end promises remain unfulfilled as well as unpaid loans he lied to us in order to secure. It would be a relief to be paid back or receive the goods Ernest used as means to acquire loans. If you are an up and coming producer with a new show for TV do not use this mans services or associations, Ed Baruch, Richard Larson, Arden Garver, David Saline, Thomas Kuhn. Ernest projects a wonderful online package. Many aspects are just outright lies. No Scottsdale office, no Hawaii office. It seems every aspect of Ernest is just an embelished fabrication of half truths to extract money from hardworking creative people trying to break into the entertainment industry. We are considering the expense of a lawsuit, however chasing after $20,000.00 from another state would be an easy judgement to get, but hard to collect. I am sure Ernest has experience dancing around those problems. Do not seek this persons services, you will regret it. Ernest utilized my Attorney without as much as a word about it. Convienent conflict of interest manipulation. Ernest manipulates all things he gets his hands on to extract fees for faux services and is associated with like minded people. Ernest comes on strong in the beginning with documents, wild monetary projections and such and if you research his current products on his website you cant find them outside of his postings. And at this time 2 of the 8 products on his site are filling complaints against Ernest. This guy needs to be exposed.

ES Cartwright LLC Ernest S. Cartwright Fraud and Liar LaJolla California
I worked as an assistant for Ernest briefly in 2011. As others have noted in the additional Rip Off reports, he makes a lot of promises but that is all they are, promises.  He never paid me for the hours I worked, going through stacks of expenses, bank statements, etc. I took him to small claims court.  He never showed up but I won the case!  I know I will never receive what I am owed but it felt great to have a judgement against him.  He put me through hell when I was struggling financially and depending on the money owed to me.  From the other scams he has pulled I got off easy.  I am happy to assist anyone else who has been scammed by Ernest Cartwright.  I'm not sure how to exchange info. but we can find a way. Please beware of this con artist.

We have requested a refund of the monies paid to Plus Media Group, and as of today, their company has been non-compliant.
