I responded to an ad o Craigslist for a sales Operative position that stated you would have a guarantee of $10,000 a month and they were only looking to fill 10 spots chicago.craigslist.org/chc/sls/d/sales-operatives/6694681571.html. So I called the contact in the ad and spoke to Zach the sales manager. He encouraged me and said that i would be making 7 or 8 sales a day at $200 commission for sale. He also stated that i would only be working a few hours a day and that there was lots of room for advancement in the company. I stated that it sounded to good to be true but he assured me if things didn't work out that my money would be refunded no questions asked and that a training webinar would start on the following Monday . I stated that with that statement i would move forward and pay my $200.00 which I did. I then never received any info on the training webinar as to when, where or what time the webinar would be so I sent emails to all asking when it would take place. After a time with no response to these emails I called Zach and he said that they were really backed up but that I would get the info. I finally got the info and attended the webinar that following Monday and ot that there were 44 people on the call not 10 like it said in the ad. During the webinar Isaac berated his sales manager Zach which I found rather cruel. He also promised leads by the end of the day to all of us so we could start making money. He also sent out another email with a welcome packet and the emails title stated "INVITATION FOR COMMENT". I had a few questions after i submitted my SS# W-9 and BANK ACCOUNT INFO for direct deposit as to why we were never sent any leads and when was I ti get them? I also tried to call Zach but his phone was disconnected, i then called the main office number on the website but it was disconnected also. I sent off a few more emails asking what was going on.  

I then got  this email from Isaac.... Termination Isaac Clariti Thu 9/20, 12:50 PM You;Devon Clariti (devon@clariticoncepts.com); Steve, You have done nothing but whine and complain since you came onboard. If you had any idea what a miracle we pull off by setting up and launching a 50L a day lead gen system for each of the 50 people a week who come on board you might have a little more respect. I for one am tired of it. We are bending over backward to get everyone live as fast as possible. That being said, we don’t tolerate negativity and disrespect from operatives. Especially, those that have yet to prove thrmselves. Zach and I have decided to remove you from the program, effective immediately. I am instructing our accounting dept. to process a refund of your setup fees to the card on file. Effective immediately you are removed from your position as an Operative. We hand you guys the keys to the kingdom on a silver platter and you want to bellyache like we owe YOU something. Sometimes it pays to move a little slower. It allows negative people such as yourself to show their colors. Next time you’re given an opportunity, don’t spend the entire first week bitching to the top company execs to tell THEM what THEY are doing wrong without knowing sh* about what goes into it. You’ve cost yourself millions. Best of luck. May the next life changing opportunity move at the pace you require. Thank you. Isaac I responded apologising, Isaac, Oh no I'm so sorry, I was not trying to come off negatively in any way. I want you to understand from my point of view that I have been burned many times paying money for a job. Therefore when I get no response from emails, texts and phone calls I get very concerned. I am not a negative person but I am very put off by your response but I get that you are under pressure as I've been there before. I'm wanting to move forward as I believe in the concept. I bring 35 yrs of highly successful phone sales and will be an asset to the company. And again I really sincerely apologize for any misunderstanding and I do hope that we can move on as a unit and we can move forward. Steve I have not received a response from Isaac, Zach or anyone else from the company and as of today 9/24/2018 not a refund either.

No Offensive Isaac

AUTHOR: - (United States)

No offense Isaac if your intentions where in the right place, I'm sure it would have taken alot more for things to but spended so easily. Also, maybe you should have tried replying to peoples emails and instead of ignoring them that would give them some reassurance that they aren't being scammed. Last time I checked that is what insurance and bonds are for to cover you in case of something like this.

You've All Destroyed An Innocent Man

AUTHOR: ISAAC - (United States)

I have nothing left to say to all of you who have taken it upon yourselves to destroy me, because your refund took a little longer than it was supposed to. I'm curious, what exactly do you all think? Do you think that I'm just pocketing money from people and never speaking to them again? Do you think that there was no delivery on our promises? 

All you've accomplished is tearing down a good business that supported a lot of people and that My wife, best friend, and I built from nothing. We just wanted to build our own success, while building the success of others. We beleive in entrepreneurship, we beleive in every persons right to be in business for themselves. We wanted to help people follow their passions and their dreams. We had an amazing concept and we were executing on it perfectly. 

Then you all came along. Our systems infrastructure was not built to support that many people, 3X as many people as any week before. So we asked you to be patient and wait while we get everything online and ready. We told you that you COULD post ads for yourself if you wanted. Some of you did, those people are still going strong and having success. But you guys, the people who were not cut out to be entrepreneurs, jumped ship. Then Steven Alimorong came along and found the 9 year old piece of news about me. I owned up to it. I accept that I did some bad things. I have to live with those things and I promise you, there is no one that will ever be as hurt or as tormented by the things I did at the age of 21 as me. 

I went to prison, I ready books and I studied and I meditated and told the universe/God that if I was given a second chance, a chance to follow my dreams, fulfill my ambitions, that I would never return to the life that got me there. 

in 2016 I walked out, a free man. I quickly got to work planning my ascension. I worked hard, double time. Making money anywhere I could, any odd job, to save up a few thousand dollars to get a business started. Finally, I had a little money and I knew how to make it work. Devon and I started our painting company and built it bigger than either of us thought possible inside of 2 months. We were so proud. We were so happy. 

The idea for this company, came from the fact that our painting company had such a hard time keeping a handle on production. We could never find good guys to complete the labor for us. It's hard finding good production guys. So we left to start EtnrePods.

a year later, we were up on our feet. Zach, Devon and I were selling the products ourselves and then completely assembling them ourselves. WE all worked 15 hour days and loved every minute. We were so proud of what we had come up with and we were so excited at the prospect of it becoming a reality. 

One of us, I can't remember which, decided it would be a good idea, to build a small remote sales force. So that's what we did. We hired on 10 people and they killed it. They went absolutely crazy. Some of them were making $1000 a day, it was selling so well. Unfortunately, our system got more and moe expensive to maintain and we were losing all of our profits by setting up operatives to drop into our system. So we simply asked that the operatives subsidize the $500 in costs associated with getting them set up and rolling. No one had a problem with it. After all, they were making great money. 

 

Then you all came along. Like I said, you weren't people who we could tell to wait. You wanted everything right now! The worst of you was Steve. He bothered and harassed us and our wives every hour of every day for 3-4 days before we finally told him to kick rocks and processed his refund out. He didn't like that. He felt like he had been scolded like a little kid and decided to devote every single second of his day to taking us down. 

Well...Bravo Steve, You win. 

You're the man. You've probably sent a hard working Daddy to prison. You've probably burned the business we built to the ground. You sure showed us man. I'm so sorry for anyone who feels that they've been wronged and I swear to you from the bottom of my heart, if you have not yet gotten your refund, you will. We aren't working with millions of dollars. We had our processing company shut us down over this which set everything back 2 weeks. We just flat ran out of money for a week which set us back even further. 

 

We are just good people, trying to build something for ourselves and for others like us. I hope you are all happy. You took the big bad scam artists down. 

PS. No matter what happens, We are issuing refunds to everyone who has not recieved one. Please let me know if you are still waiting. We have issued 23 out of 30 I beleive and they will all be finished this week.

Never Send Money

AUTHOR: Thomas - (United States)

Simply, you should never pay someone to work for them.  Never send money, no fees, nothing.  Your time, equipment, skills, efforts etc. are yours and you should in no circumstances send money to someone asking you to work for them. 

As you will note, their website is already down.  I wonder just how many $200 payments they received?  Note: as a professional photographer, make a contract with the client and that contract dictates. 

Within the contract, you can also satisfy the needs of the client by setting an expectation and adding it to the conditions.  Require a portion of the contract price upfront and a termination clause that allows you to schedule another job and makes someone think twice about cancelling at the last minute. 

It also enhances perceived value.  Even if you are just starting out as a photographer, behaving like a professional goes a long way.

ISAAC BRUTON IS STILL LYING AND DECEIVING

AUTHOR: STEVEN - (United States)

First off I want to state that Issac Bruton is a felon with a criminal record. It does not matter if he was a "Stupid kid" or not when he committed his crime spree. He knew it was wrong and carried out his well thought out scheme for quite a long time from what I understand. He ripped off many people of their hard earned money like Bernie Madoff and is coning people again.  Second, I want to make it clear that I DID NOT dig into his past and find out that he had a felony record. Other victims that filled out reports on this site did that and when I saw their posts I was quite surprised but not shocked. Only a lying criminal mind could have the gall to commit this crime again.  Third, Isaac Bruton states that I "harassed his staff" and "called them b****** and w*****". I want to remind Issac Bruton that I have the email chain from him and his staff and saved of ALL the communications from them and that the state of Colorado Securities Investigation has them. Nowhere in that chain of emails do you see any derogatory statements from me calling such names that he accuses me of doing and I will be reporting him of these false allegations.

As for phone conversations there were none as I stated in my first posting that all of the phone numbers I tried to call were shut off. And in conclusion Issac Bruton has tried to bribe me to stop telling the truth and to go away... "Steve, What is it going to cost me to get you to go away. Obviously you have a lot of time on your hands. You've received your money back. Everyone else who has requested a refund has received their money back. What can I do or pay to get you to leave our company alone to run our business and continue helping people. Please advise. Thank you" He also has begged me to come back and work for him... Alright man, Well my attorney is hard at work on you. I appreciate you going out of your way to take care of the people. If you truly are doing this out of the goodness in your heart, I commend you. Unfortunately you have missed badly on this one, as we have stolen from no one.

We wish you the best of luck and we forgive you for everything you've tried to do to bring us down because we excluded you. I hope you find success. If you work as hard on your own ventures as you have in trying to bring our company down, you'll be successful sir. I wish you the best in everything. I don't hold grudges and I don't wish anything bad to happen to anyone. I just want to be done with you because you seem to be bothering the good people who believe in us. I'll tell you what, if you every decide that you do want to work with us instead of against us, I would be happy to give you back a position on our team. Same terms as before, which have been promised to everyone. I'll allow you back in with no investment so that you can see with your own eyes that we are above board and are truly creating a better life for people. You let me know if you want to join us. I like what I've seen, in that you are perseverant and will spend any amount of time and energy on what you believe in. That speaks volumes to me.

Take good care brother. Tell the wheels of justice to call me if they need to see anything. I'm an open book. :) As if I would ever work for a lying deceiving criminal who has tried to game me from every angle possible. As for refunding my $200.00 it was only after I filed this ripoff report that he finally refunded my money. It took extreme actions to get my money back and other people still haven't. I highly advise that all other victims of this predator report to the Securities Commission in Colorado is currently investigating Clariti Concepts and looking for people who were defrauded by him. Please contact Christina at 303-894-2320.

I'm the Guy They Say is Stealing

AUTHOR: ISAAC - (United States)

Wow!

You guys have things messed up. 

First of all, the cited articles are from 9 years ago when I was a stupid kid. Second of all, if there is anyone reading this who has not received a refund within 3 weeks of requesting, please email me immediately so we can get it out to you. 

The author of this ripoff report is Steven Alimorong, a disgruntled former member of our program whom was kicked out for harassing our staff, clients and others. He was disrespectful the entire time and would not quit calling with questions about the same things. This is fine, people have questions. But then he turned nasty and started calling my business partners bitches and whores for being short with him on the phone. This was obviously unnacceptable, so we asked him to leave the program. 

Steven was given a refund for the entirety of his money through CashApp. A transaction for which I have a receipt which we shared with the rest of the group he came in with. After that, he didn't stop. He dug into my past and found a 9 year old case from a Denver court where I was charged with Securities fraud after a misguided attempt at real estate investment and raising capital. I did get sentenced to parole and that is true. It is the shame and scorn of my life and my existence that I allowed myself to get caught up in such a stupid situation. It was the act of a stupid 21 year old kid who thought he was invincible. 

I don't in any way defend my actions 9 years ago, but I have paid dearly for them. I have since turned my life all the way around. I have a beautiful family, wife, 15 month old daughter that changed my life. I love that little girl with everything I have in me and I would never jeopardize her life or my freedom for anything. I started with some partners, a company that makes it alot easier for entrepreneurs to get started up and running in business. We designed a very cool system, wherein any skilled professional or tradesman can get outfitted with everything they need to be in business and get matched up with sales, marketing, management and production professionals to go at the venture as a team. We have to date, built 114 working EntrePods that are thriving in business and in life. 

One of our ventures coming soon, is a venture for people like me, 9 years ago who need someone to say come with me kid, get off of this path and let me show you how to build a business and create a real life for yourself. I needed someone like me, who had been there, who understood how easy it is to get off track. I needed someone to show me real opportunity. 

Anyway, a couple of months ago, we began building a remote salesforce that would allow people to log in when they want, from where they want, to sell our products and services and help new entrepreneurs get up and running. We brought on about 30 people who did awesome. They were thriving and growing and are all still with us to this day. Then came along Steve. 

Steve did a number on us after he was ejected and refunded. He caused 13 people to walk away from what would have been a life-changing opportunity for them. I don't feel bad for us, I feel bad for those people whom had the opportunity stolen from them by a madman. 

I want to be very very clear here. My company has never, will never and is not currently stealing from anyone. We have to request a refund from the people who host our software package in order to refund the clients who area requesting a refund of us. The process can be as fast as 1 week, but most often is 2-3 weeks. No one has been waiting longer than 3 weeks. If that is innacurate, I would invite that person to please get in touch with me at isaac@clariticoncepts.com

This site ruins good businesses because of people like Steve Alimorong. We need to protect the companies that really arent doing anything wrong. Unless you think that my future, my wife's future, my daughters future, my business associates future, and the futures of all of those people who's lives have been bettered by our products and services, should be decided by the mistakes that I made in my past, a long time ago. 

No matter where you stand, I wish you all success, happiness and greatness in all of your future endeavors and in your lives and the lives of your families. One Love. 

Isaac

 I also paid $200.00 for the opportunity and requested a refund the 2nd day which was within the 7 days on the contract. They kept saying it would be the next day, then the next day. It’s been 14 days with no refund and now they don’t answer emails. Please do not sign up to work for them!

Clariti concept concern/opinion.

AUTHOR: Gian - (United States)

 Hey steven, sorry tp hear about what happened, after doing a little digging up I've come to the conclusion that seems like you might have fallen prey to somebody called Isaac Bruton also goes by the name Michael Brouton. Years ago He was ordered by a Colorado Securities Commissioner to stop trying to get investors for his trading program on craiglist. in.gov/sos/indianamoneywise/4194.htm. , google.com/amp/s/, denverpost.com/2010/06/28/englewood-man-to-stop-his-investment-offer/amp/. He also deleted his linkin account that mentions his association with Clariti Concept, seems to me like this is a different scam under a new company name. My suggestion will be to halt any future transactions with these people and report them to the authorities in Denver Colorado also to craiglist and take as many pictures and screenshots as possible. They have multiple ads up in multiple cities.
