Ocean Air Marketing Fraud Virginia Beach, Virginia
I answered an ad one day as I was looking for work and the list of names that they claimed to be working with seemed reputable enough so I went for an interview. I went into the interview. I was professionally dressed and I had my typed resume all nice and in a folder and handed it to the receptionist and then I met Jesse, who did the interview. He looked like one of your typical little scumbag in an expensive suit but I paid no mind to it knowing that this kid was in charge of me getting a job I deperately needed.
After the interview winded down I was immediately offered the opportunity to come out and go on a ride along with an employee already there so that I may be able to get an idea of what type of work it was. I said okay and that was that. I came back later that week and I was hooked up with a group of men that was going to assist me that day. Typically, me being a female, I usually don't get into cars with strange men, especially three but I figured it was safe and it was sponsored by the company so what the heck. He was driving a light green Impala but I couldn't remember his name, none of their names actually.
So we ended up in the Deep Creek section of Chesapeake (I knew where we were going because I lived there for almost 12 years with my family) and we proceeded to drive to a street where the car stopped and we were supposed to get out and go door to door selling coupons for Pizza Hut and, I believe, Dominos. I was not too thrilled about this as it was like 98 degrees outside, I had no water on me, and I was wearing a hot suit as I was told to dress up. So the first red flag should have been the inhuman conditions I was being asked to work in.
So we split up into like two groups and walked in different directions. I would say that I walked about five miles before I was ready to throw in the towel as I was not told the correct information about the job as well I was not in the best shape so this was a bad way to start out excercising. I told the driver, who I was with, that I did not have the stamina to continue and that I really needed to get home and most importantly get to some water before I have a heat stroke. He was nice and said okay and we walked back to his car. The other two men came back up to the car and I guess the driver had let the other two in on the fact that I was going back to the Beach so that I could get home. There was one in particular that was nasty and hostile saying that he didn't want to get me home, I could leave from there and that me getting back to the Beach was not his responsibility.
I was extremely upset at that point because no one I knew was anywhere near there and, after all, I didn't get out there by myself. So I called my fiance at work and let him know that the job was a lie and that I was being left at the Hardee's on George Washington Highway and that I needed a ride home. Man was he pissed! He came out to get me like 15 minutes later and the men, who was now on lunch break, was still there.
I saw my fiance fly into one of the parking stops and he was out the car before he even had time to cut the car off and charging towards their car. He got into a large argument with the men because of the fact that they bought a woman out to a different city with no intentions of safety even though this was supposed to be a job. The driver was sympathetic and wanted to take me home but it was the jerk in the backseat that was acting that way. So the whole argument ended because I broke it up as I knew in a few more seconds my fiance would more than likely beat one of them to a pulp.
By the time I got home I called their office and let the receptionist know just what had taken place and she said, in a rather cold manner, that she would let Jesse know. Somehow I don't believe she was, just by listening to her voice. My point of the story is to let everyone know that this is a scam of monumental proportions and that I am glad that I was not harmed that day.
As I stated before, I do not give a d**n if Jesse calls this slandering or whatever. The truth of the matter is that it happened and none of this story is fake, though I wish it was because I lost a little bit more of my trust for people that day and I am usually very trusting. And to be honest with all that happened, I could hold a lawsuit against them for endangerment, so I would think twice before contacting me over a lawsuit. I question every opportunity that comes my way now! Beware anyone contacted to work for this company because they are fake!!!!!
