McFarland Consulting ripoff, promised over $5000.00 government grant. Champlain New York
I was lucky. I went to my bank on the same day that I called up McFarland Consulting in Champlain, New York and had given them all my banking info. I asked the teller why a company would need to know my routing# and account# from my checks to do a transaction but would not accept my debit card info as payment instead. She asked me who? When I told her the company name she called her supervisor and he apparently looked them up online because he had the teller send me to his office so we could close out that account and open a new one to stop McFarland from ripping me off for $289.00. HOW do you stop these crooks from taking advantage of people? Their 3x5 GREEN postcard is very official looking. I hope this helps someone else keep from getting ripped off.

Family Business Consulting Group Unlicensed consultants with questionable practices Chicago Illinois
Questionable Business consulting practices. This firm was employed by my elderly parent who owns a small family business. David Lansky was hired to consult with the family on a succession plan. Dr. Lansky also worked with one of the family members who was also employed at this firm.  The firm is located in Chicago Illinois and Lansky has a background as a clinical psychologist.  At the time of this incident he was licensed to practice in Illinois. Upon checking with my states licensing board he was NOT licensed to practice in my state. At the time of this incident the words counseling and consulting were spoken interchangeably by my elderly parent when I first refused to participate. Why was I refusing?  The family member and fellow employee of Lansky, my sister Carol, had been interfering with my college aged child who is diagnosed as an alcoholic. My sister had drank with her, gone behind my back and given my child money when I had cut them off financially. I had attempted to get this child to go to treatment with the only leverage I had left which was her tution, rent etc.  However because she could get $ from her aunt Carol she ignored me and my efforts that she seek help. I asked this sister and another sister who is the President of the family company to attend a meeting to help me with my child. They refused to attend, instead enabling my daughter. These two sisters also had an agenda to take over the family business and essentially push the owner, our father out. That  effort did not succeed. And now back to Lansky:This man met with me and acted as a counselor. He stated that my family had some right to interfere with my child. He stated several other things I found disturbing.  He was asked by me if he intended to meet with the family as a whole.  He said he did not know. I told him I would attend a future meeting. Subsequently that meeting was sheduled the next day. I could not attend on such short notice. What happened next was preposterous. I received notice from him through my sibling that another meeting was scheduled. I then inquired about the meeting that was held when I could not attend. I was told it was confidential. Hmm, a family meeting with an agenda to get people on the same page and now anything said was confidential.  Appropriate in a counseling session perhaps but not appropriate to further the objective. Lansky was counseling not consulting. Before I ever could attend another meeting (which was scheduled over a major surgery I had already scheduled) I was forced from the family business. Prior to this time I spoke to Lansky twice and he confirmed that he told my family not to speak to me. I recorded this conversation as it is legal in my state. This was his idea, his method. If someone disagrees with you then stop talking to them and kick them to the curb. wow. His directions were taken seriously but my Mother in particular was not in agreement.  However I know now that she was bullied to comply. My Mother passed away about 6 months after this but fortunately I was able to meet with her, find out what she was being told by this counselor and that she considered him to be doing counseling not business consulting.  My Mother was never part of the business. About the same time I was contacted by another family member by text which said those idiots say I can talk to you again. I was also told by my Mom that They told her I was no longer her daughter. Carol and Lansky apparently had their own agenda and they clearly did not concern themsleves with causing harm. Both tout themselves as exeprieced in the field of psychology. This is just a very short summary but before you get involved with this firm be cautioned:They are not licensed in the fields they tout. Therefore you have no way to complain about their seemingly unethical practices. What did I consider possibly unethical?Lansky did not divulge a conflict of interest in that he worked with my sister. My Mother specifically told me she was told did not work together with Carol.  (hard to explain to an elderly parent but the Family Business Consultant website showed clearly that Lansky and Carol work together.) A counselor is required to report a conflict of interest to those he is counseling. Lansky practiced as a counselor and at that time was a licensed psychologist in Illionois but NOT in my state. He also did not apply for reciprocity in my state or have a temporary license. I confirmed this with the state. Presently he is no longer licensed in Illinois. Subsequently I cannot file a complaint with Illinois licensing when the man has no license. Lansky advised my family, particularly my parents to not speak to me for several months.  No counsleor I have consulted would sign on to such advice. I believe if you want to resolve an issue you need to speak to people. Carol in particular has used this method for years to avoid confrontation so I am not surprised she does it.  However, to operate this way in your personal life and carry it out as advice to others is ludicrous.  My emails and phone numbers were then blocked from all concerned. What advisor tells anyone to do this type of thing? At this time no one concerned will discuss this so I thought it helpful to file this report and take measures to caution anyone who might hire this firm. Lansky was pushing an agenda: Get the head of the family business out, an agenda of the sisters who were enabling (and continue to do so) a known alcoholic. In the process these two sisters also destroyed other family relationships. Carol, a consultant with this firm obviously has questionable judgement as well. I will say her personal situation likely influences her decisions but she also touts an educational background that cannot be challenged by a licensing board becasue she is also not licensed in any field that she claims she has experience in. So, caution to those who would hire this firm or these individuals to help you with your family business. Caution to the owner as well as the family because the business practices of these individuals caused more harm then good. The field of family business consulting is not regulated and may be working with persons who cannot be held responsible for their actions and who may lack both common sense and the ability to advise you appropriately. If not speaking to people who disagree with you is your way of solving problems this firm is for you.  If you hold a belief that harmony comes from discussion as does resolve (so that you can move on to actual business issues) find another firm to help you!

Then decided to take a look at this report and it is the same scam that they pulled on the lady in Arizona.  At least I am not out any money.      Hopefully someone can stop these wonderful people from scamming those of us that are working hard at getting employment.

The report was lodged from an employee of a company that was contracted with Malteco Business Consulting, Inc.  This company represented itself as having resourses of interest to Malteco.  Malteco agreed to commission/fees for product brought forth.  Malteco Business Consulting Group is now owned by The Donlee Group, Inc.   These individuals have never produced anything for the new owner of Malteco to consider.  There is no existing agreement. This is an obvious pitiful attempt at extortion.  I also noticed that this website offers the opportunity to clear my record through arbitration for a fee.  Again all I see is extortion.  I don't think soap and water will be sufficient to cleanse my hand from having to answer to the ridiculous claim from the husband and wife team out of Nevada.

ICM Consulting ICM Consulting Corporation failure to deliver on their contractual obligations, open sabotage, fraud, defamation, threats to destroy the company and our website, blackmail and extortion Toronto, Ontario
During eleven (11) months in 2010 ICM Consulting was openly sabotaging their contractual obligations refusing to address our concerns about search engine optimization not working properly and refusing to provide us with all appropriate documentation and results including sitemap submission date and confirmation received from the search engines such as Google, Yahoo!, Bing, Ask etc. Moreover, our legitimate requests to investigate if there were any possible solutions to the existing problem and correct deficiencies with the search engines were met with increasing ignorance, rudeness, disrespectful behaviour and open aggression that finally progressed to ICM Consultings decision to sabotage the hosting of the website as a reprisal leading to business interruption. The requested by ICM Consulting amount of $588+GST for one month extension was  the amount normally charged by the Web Hosting re-seller Hostgator for 120 GB disk space + 1000 GB Bandwidth with unlimited domains per year  - and can be regarded as a form of extortion. ICM Consulting failure to perform was enforced by using of foul language, profanities and open defamation. Our requests to restore missing information on our website were met by the ICM Consulting with open threats to: 1.      to shut down our website and destroy our website 2.      to permanently damage our website using their own resources 3.      to make our life a living hell 4.      to bring us (APLUS Institute) into disrepute

Power Brands Consulting Power Brands Beverage Consultants STAY AWAY FROM POWER BRANDS CONSULTING Sherman Oaks California
STAY AWAY from Power Brands Consulting. If you are thinking that you need help with your business, DON'T FALL for their fancy brand-name dropping and fake offices 'on both coasts'. They are con artists and will take your money before you know it. We are a private equity backed business. A year ago, we pursued a bunch of contracts with them for the development of a line of beverages. Their con scout Saul chased like a good dog, we we signed them, of course they didn't. No dates, no deadlines, nothing. In good faith, we had not opted to use legal advice at that time. For the last 12 months we have been enduring the Power Brands curse on every level. Samples without content labels that could be dangerous to consume, pathetic creative work, incompetent staff, rude attitude and total oblivion. I will not list out everything we have been through with these guys because there isn't enough space on here. Regarding the creatives, their work was so bad after 5 rounds we had to buy special software and machines to do it ourselves. We paid for 'brand consulting' $10k/month an got zero from them. We paid for logos, brand names, taglines, content...well, you guessed it. We had to do everything ourselves. Finally when we wanted help in connecting with co-packers and distributors they totally turned a blind eye. So all their promises on their website are totally fake. The moment they get paid that is when the downhill begins. When the blunders were just out of control, I was asking why the deadlines were consistently not met, the follow up was non existent and the progress was so slow. I was questioning why they were making so many mistakes, in crucial things such as the specs! They were mixing up and screwing up the dosages! Why was the lab constantly understaffed and changing people? That is when the sociopath Darin Ezra lashed out with threats, pulling off his team and demanding we got AN ADDITIONAL resource to cover their lack of knowdedge in beverage development. Unless we paid for this resource they would stop all work. His sidekick Marty Molina, acts like a calming agent but is just as a con as Ezra is. So we did pay, only to still achieve nothing for months. When we finally reached at 'final' production, that is when the total disaster happened. The final product was NOT like anything we had sampled throughout the months. It was bitter, awful tasting, had a mud-like sediment and black. We had to destroy 8 tons of product. We had to go back to the drawing board. We had to keep the investors still on board (this was the toughest). This cost us close to $150k and 6 months out. Of course, PB just ignored everything and finally their con lawyer Jill Birkman sent us the 'cancellation of agreements' letter. When we asked for a refund for incompleted work, well, they made us sign a liability release agreement all the way in the beginning after an serious issue they had caused (I cannot disclose) AND they used that for all the work and every mishap on their behalf.  When we started, they assured us we would be in business within 4-6 months, well that was a joke. A year later and we are $300k short and with no product.  So please do yourself a favor. STAY AWAY.

Force Business Consulting Uses Consulting Job Offer, employment contract, credit card scam, internet, preys on unemployed Internet
Force Business Consultants please read if you are involved with them! They seem VERY legitimate, I researched them before signing up. Until today, they had a very nice website that looked totally professional complete with client names, European offices, contacts - the whole shebang. The Consulting program is a good hook, It too along with the tests and case studies really feel like a true opportunity. I had even spoke to the recruiter when she called me initially - all seemed on the level. EVEN their reasoning for using personal cards with reimbursing of funds from their account. I have not lost any money (yet that I am aware of but still holding breath). The phone number on all their emails is bogus - it does trace back to a land line in New York but it will not work  (***-***-****) and the office is susposed to be on the Avenue of the Americas in NYC I believe. All the contracts, paperwork, everything they send is very professional looking but as of this morning I am highly concerned it is indeed a scam. No longer being able to talk with a person, the number not working, the website now showing down and being rebuilt and only email contact is sending off alarms. I have kept all of the documents sent authorizing accesses and charges, etc... just in case I need them. I have contacted my credit card companies and alerted them as well as closed the accounts. I am hoping fervantly Force realizes I am not playing along and just calls it quits. Having worked on the internet for many years, having an internet company and doing most of my communications and training via email and internet is not in itself unusual in this day and age which is why I did not pick up on the immediate danger. I am eating major crow and feeling like an idiot but this group is very good, very savvy and very smooth. BEWARE!

Millenium Marketing - Casey Consulting Took my $9000 Las Vegas Nevada
In July 2007 I was looking for a business I could run from home to make some extra income. I came upon Millenium Marketing Concepts and was contacted by a representative of the company after expressing an interest over the internet. After several phones calls over a couple of days, I thought the program sounded like it could possibly make some money. I was told I could possibly make $120,000 the first year. I would have been happy with less, just make back the money I was investing a little more sounded fine. Needless to say, after a guaranteed 120,000 visitors to my website and submission to 200 search engines (which I don't think either of these things happened) I am out $9000 and did not make a single penny on this deal. Now I'm in debt to the credit card company for the next 20 years or so and am kicking myself repeatedly. Oh, and after they received my money, I never heard another word from them, other than the email to tell me how to access my site. Nor was it explained to me that the web site would only be up for 1 year. I believe $9000 a year for a website is quite excessive. In hindsight, knowing what I know now, I could have done the same thing on my own for under $500. Teresa Lewistown, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

It isn't presented as a one man operation but that's what it is. I responded to an ad on craigslist for a job. Long story short I got my first assignment from Innovations Media Consulting to do a sort of online/telephone secret shopper kind of gig. The deal is that you go online and fill out forms acting as though you're interested in what they're offering. Then you get a call from a telemarketer, and you evaluate the telemarketer. I should have guessed that with all of the people out there that are looking for legitimate work-from-home opportunities it wouldn't be that easy. I wouldn't say it sounded too good to be true, but it sounded pretty decent. There was the drawback that you had to be available to take calls pretty much all day every day. I guess there are enough people trying to get opportunities like this that Robin could just use each individual one time and then move on to the next and never pay any of them. The reason I say its a one man operation (or one woman, as the case may be) is because when I received my assignment, Robin was listed as my go-to person... my manager. I was given her phone number and name as the person to call with questions. I could never reach her. Later, I decided to go above her head, so I went to the company's website to get the company number. The number listed as the company number was her number. Also, its a cell phone. When you get your first assignment from them they refer to you as an employee - even though you're doing contract work. I overlooked the semantical error at the time, but this in itself could land her in some trouble. In particular the IRS frowns on treating contract workers as employees because people do this to avoid paying employer taxes. So now I am also probably going to be reporting her to the IRS. One last thing: When I received my first assignment (it consisted of 10 evaluations, and I was promised to be paid $250 after the completion of them, to be paid to my PayPal account the Friday after I turned the work in... it has been three weeks and I have not been paid despite an email informing her that I would file a complaint with the Office of the Attourney General in her state if she did not pay me. I don't think she even reads her emails) I was informed that once I had evaluated a telemarketer I would not be contacted by that company again. Also untrue. I am now being innundated with phone calls.

rust consulting inc. wal mart mdl1735 settlement payments not being paid , Internet
this complaint is about rust consulting inc. handling of the walmartmdl1735 settlement payments. i received a book and a claim form in the mail concerning a lawsuit settlement for current and former walmart hourly employees ( which i am ) in 2009 to recover money as part of a class action settlement , so i went ahead and filled out the claim form and sent it back before the stated deadline on submitting the claim form thinking that i would be getting some money back ( since walmart could not pay us employees  for every hour worked ). well after waiting a year on this case to be settled i found out in january 2011 from the rust consulting  ( walmartmdl . com website ) that the case was settled and the settlement checks was mailed on december 30th 2010  well after reading that i thought finally i would be getting the money that walmart owes us current and former employees (  it appears to be wishful thinking ) because it has been over 3 months now since the checks was supposedly mailed  and as of 4/3/2011 i still have not received anything !! , so after trying to contact rust consulting and only getting automated messages on their phone  or them not answering e-mails  i am thinking that this company ( rust consulting ) has no intentions of paying us the money thats owed to us current and former employees it looks like rust consulting is trying to keep the money for themselves  , it was bad enough that walmart could not pay us employees what we earned then this company ( rust consulting is ripping us off to !!!!
