Complaint Review: Jaycolby Robinson - Memphis TN
Jaycolby Robinson Greater Victory Church Scam for Job Position that didn't exist Memphis TN
"Greater Victory Church of Memphis" posted Director of Business Development position on Indeed. I applied and was offered position (August 19). We all (others were given positions) were told AFTER being offer job that the church was planted by Southern Baptist Convention and was pending funding but we should have funding by September 3 and paid on September 13.
We signed offer letters at a meeting on Sat Aug 31 with a start date of Sept 1. My offer was $45K which had a typo so the hired "Administrator" drew a line through and corrected. We were told to all have budgets for our Dept submitted in 7 days per Southern Baptist. We all submitted budgets. Later the Pastor..Jaycolby Robinson sent out a group message saying we needed to Cash App $20 for our background checks because that's what was holding up funding.
Red flags went up and finally we all started investigating. We called Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis who Jaycolby said was our "parent church" and Bellevue said they NEVER heard of him. We also called Art Groomes who Jaycolby mentioned SEVERAL times was in charge of church planting and was rooting for him. (Jaycolby claimed Southern Baptist and Bellevue recruited him to Pastor this church).
Art Groomes who actually over Church Planting for Midsouth Baptist Association advised everything Jaycolby stated was a lie and provided this in writing as well. I had sent $20 for background along with several others and requested Jaycolby send it back and he did. Of course I was not paid for the 2 weeks I worked but others had worked longer and were scammed out of a lot of more money and an older lady scammed out of a car.
Jaycolby Robinson also stated he was licensed through Church of God in Christ. I contacted their headquarters and confirmed this was a lie as well. This has been one of the worst experiences I've had.
