I responded to an ad on craigslist for a customer service position for Clown Monkey Clothing. After completing the online application, I received an E-mail inviting me to post on their message boards, so they could supposedly get to know everyone.

It didnt take long to realize that there was some serious monkey business going with this site. To make a long story short, clown monkey clothing is luring thousands of people to their site by offering them jobs for a company that has no inventory, and no product of any kind.

They actually have a picture of some random looking guy, with a fake shirt very poorly photo shopped onto him. They are calling this monstrosity a "collectors item" and selling it for $30.00 dollars, and urging their prospective employees to buy this thing.

The supposed president of the supposed company takes part in the message board over there, and after I started asking questions, and the community there started to realize they had been bamboozled, he offered to answer all of our questions and prove that he was legit.

After about an hour of him dodging every single question that was asked of him, he said, " I havent slept in 5 days, and my burrito is cold". seriously, thats all he could say.

Bottom line is this place is not a legitimate business. Buyer's and job seekers beware.

Hire without Marketing

AUTHOR: Thehallofjustice - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Friday, January 23, 2009
Some points:

-- It appears to be a ploy to bring traffic to the site and increase awareness of the corporation.

-- Recent messages on the Message Board are all one-sided. Seemingly everyone shares the same viewpoint and no one has one unique or opposing thought.

-- Maybe the company' will eventually hire but there are certainly ulterior motives in the so called hiring process. Recruitment should not be so heavily tied what could be perceived directly as marketing.

-- They keep prolonging the recruitment process, and try to act like they did not expect the massive applicant response.

-- They keep coming up with hypothetical situations and suggestions, rather than taking real action.

What do you think if we have a BBQ job fair? Here is a long list of potential cities to hold a BBQ. Let's spend money on a BBQ and travel to various cities across the nation to recruit for a minimum wage job. (Any BBQ that might take place is cover for brand recognition and marketing.)

-- In addition, management appears to be indecisive or inexperienced, with all of their questions to the community. Or, maybe they know precisely the answer to their questions and are just acting to trick people into believing they have some type of genuine interest in their well being, and not site traffic.

-- They continue to encourage posting to Message Board. Do you really think you strongly stand out as a candidate from making a post to a crowded message board, regardless of your qualifications?

--People should stop posting to the Message Board. Sorry, it looks ridiculous. (This is an opinion.) You all are dancing around like monkeys, and the owner is laughing himself to death. Management should make a decision, if they are going to at all.

Nightshift imposter.

AUTHOR: Nightshift - (U.S.A.)

POSTED: Wednesday, January 21, 2009
Well I noticed today that someone is copying my reports here on ripoffreport.com to other sites like complaintboard.com, and some other one about scams or fraud or something, I dont know what its called.

Anyway, I dont know why someone would do that, but Im pretty sure its a scum monkey.

I just want to go on record and state that I did not make those posts, and whoever you are, if you have a complaint of your own, WRITE IT YOURSELF.

If you are going to repost someones writing without their permission, then at least put in your posts that you copied the writing from another site, that you are not the author, and that the author does not know that you are acting as an imposter on their behalf.

FOR THE RECORD, I DID NOT COPY AND POST THIS TO ANY OTHER SITE.

THERE IS A NIGHTSHIFT IMPOSTER!!!

I dont really know what to make of it.


In any event, I would appreciate if the imposter would edit their post to reflect that they are not me, and in the future WRITE YOUR OWN COMPLAINTS.

Just wanted to update this.......

OK, well clown monkey clothing is STILL posting ads for employment. Now they are advertising for jobs to support their "Boston" market on some site called flex jobs, stating that they have all these work from home jobs all over the country. It's just so funny, and yet so sad.

I mean they have no product, and they are based in San Francisco, and according to them(this has been one of their half baked excuses for the last several months), haven't even launched yet, yet somehow......... they have this huge need for workers in Boston?

So basically after their initial run with this scam, I think people are starting to wise up, and are staying away from clown monkey, that's why they are starting to aggressively post again.

I guess the first seven thousand applicants just weren't good enough for this non- existent business.

They have no product, no service, no business, and NO JOBS.

Don't be scammed!! or taken advantage of by these losers!

Rolls eyes - right back at ya.

Ok, so this rollseyes person whom is supposedly an "applicant" for this fake company, and is obviously fanatically defending this supposed "company" for which they have applied is really funny.

You claim you are just an applicant for this company.

Yet you say I still troll the forums over there. I logged in once, which was yesterday because i got an e-mail saying that I had a message. Yeah I checked it out, out of curiosity, and it was just some message from yet another person that said they have finally accepted that clown monkey was just wasting peoples time.

The facts still remain. And the questions STILL remain unanswered.

Clown monkey does not have any product, and provides no service.

Clown monkey purposely advertised for job openings in every city in the country for a handful of positions, knowing full well they would receive thousands of responses.

Clown monkey has continued to advertise job openings despite the fact that they already had thousands of applicants.

More than two weeks have passed, and not one single applicant has been hired.

Clown monkey has gone to great lengths to dodge all relevant questions regarding their operation, and any questions at all for that matter.

Clown monkey is screening all posts in an effort to thwart any "questions".

Sorry, I dont need to waste an entire month on your retarded forum to know something is very wrong there.

And yeah it really pisses me off that somebody thinks they have the right to mislead people, and lie to them, and waste other peoples time, when the time they are wasting being lied to is time that could have been spent looking for a real job.

When someone trys to take advantage of me or anyone for that matter, I don't hesitate to speak up, and take action.

Rolls eyes you are even lying about being an applicant. If your just an applicant why have you taken it upon yourself to reply to every rip off report that has been made against this "company".

You can sit on that boring forum for 5 year olds all you want.

I however don't appreciate being lied to, and I certainly don't appreciate having my time wasted by some con artist.

Despite what you may think, oh wait I forgot, you obviously dont know how to think, but anyway, I am entitled to get pissed of when I see this kind of blatant disrespect.

Let us all know when you get your first paycheck.

THIS applicant was trouble since Day 2.

"Nightshift" is not only extremely impatient, but quick to anger, and also has the mouth of a sailor. He/She is still trolling the boards at Clown Monkey Clothing, perhaps to "warn" others of the website.

Honey, your threats are not working. Hang it up already and move on with your life, OK?

Clown Monkey Clothing is a LEGITIMATE business.
