Wow, am I glad I checked this site out! After getting a very nice email, followed by a very nice and professional-sounding phone call from a secretary I was eager to meet the representative of this company I'd never heard of. Sounded so expensive, very high-class, and I felt that perhaps I was being selected out of just a few because of my background to have the opportunity to actually present my sorry case to this wonderful executive service.

I went to the first interview. I came away very impressed and excited but was puzzled as to why he wanted to see me again but this time with spouse in tow. But, I was told that only 15% of applicants get asked back, that I was special and was going to be an easy person to score a job for. Luckily for me my wife was out of the state and was unable to attend a second meeting. I relayed this info to Bernard Haldane Co. which said that they could forego the spouse attending and lets meet again soon.

On my second meeting a sheet was passed over the desk which explained that for me to get their expertise I would need to shell out $4800. Well, I'm not stupid...alarm bells went off! I called my wife and she about crapped! Having worked in a Job Recruiting company for 10 yrs herself she gave me the quick skinny. Needless to say, the Haldane Company didn't get me to sign on the bottom line!

I can't report a fraud but I can see the makings of a fairly easy and perfectly legal scam. Since Bernard Haldane makes no claims to ever locate you a job they are completely off the hook legally if you fail to find employment. Basically, they are a very expensive short course on resume writing and interview presentation... and that's it. The rest is up to you. Think it's worth almost $5K? Not me.

If say, they were to actually land you a job....and it pays $48,000 a year. 10% goes to Bernard Haldane!? I could do better on my own.

The buyer should be aware but I feel the States Attorney General should be aware as well as to the cult-like manipulation of individuals in very vulnerable situations.

They should probably cease just as a health risk. Suprising actually that no one's gotten hurt! Anyone bilked ME out of $5K and I knew their physical address....better run!

STOP! ..before you think about using the Better Business Bureau (BBB)... CLICK HERE to see how other consumers were victimized by the BBB's false or misleading information. Don't be fooled! It has been reported, when there are thousands of complaints and other investigations underway by authorities, the BBB has no choice but to finally give an UNsatisfactory rating to a BBB member business that is paying the BBB big membership fees every year. When a business is reported that is NOT a BBB member, BBB files WILL more likely show an UNsatisfactory rating, then reportedly shake down that company to become a member of the BBB. One positive thing about the BBB is, either way, if a business has an unsatisfactory rating with the BBB, you can be sure, the business is bad. But what about all those BBB member businesses that had complaints filed against them? Consumers never get to hear about them. What about the BBB advertising to the public? Is this a false and misleading perception they are giving about consumer confidence when dealing with a business? Click here to understand more of what consumers and business alike are saying about the BBB. You decide. ..Remember. The BBB membership is not earned, its paid for!
