Next Wave Concepts shady, scam, door to door, multi-level marketing, liars Ripoff Bloomington Minnesota
Next Wave Concepts are very shady. As soon as I submitted my resume to a very vague ad, I not only received an email back but a phone call immediately after I submitted my resume. I realized there was no way they could have really reviewed my resume in that time so I knew it must be a cattle call. Thanks to one of my friends who I talked to, I did not go into the interview because he told me he went to an all day interview and he sold to houses all day. He just said it was a scammy door to door, multi level marketing company. So I am glad I did not go and neither should you. Sarah Minneapolis, MinnesotaU.S.A.

COBRA - Next Core Marketing ripoff Too Good To Be True Door to Door Sales BENDIGO VICTORIA Australia
Ah, yet another COBRA story...I only got as far as the ob day so didn't learn any of the jargon, but how funny it was to read all the stories previously posted and realise how lucky I was to escape halfway through the day. Our Leader drove myself and another girl an hour away from our town and we basically walked around in 30 degree heat toting this complete crap that the leader was trying to sell door to door to businesses. I mean he had a torch, a digital camera and a knife set - he even tried to sell to charities and thrift shops. We got what I suspect is the company spiel in the car - how great the company is, how it is life changing etc etc. The girl that I was with and I decided we had to get out of there - and fast. While our leader was ordering lunch, I ducked into the optometrist next door (on the pretext of looking at sunglasses) and asked where the railway station was. On hearing it was just around the corner, I quickly drafted a note to my fellow ob and slipped it to her as I sat down. The note read We have to get away. Station around corner. I will buy tix. Are you with me? She gave a thumbs up and we basically finished our lunches and told the leader that we didn't feel that we were suited to the company and that we were seeing ourselves home. I wonder how often this happens as surely the fields being so far away are a ploy to trap potential recruits. I feel glad that I was smart enough to see this company for what it was before I gratefully accepted any job off them and urge any readers to consider the adage that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

American Direct Sweepstakes Request $13,000 to release package incl. $1.2 Million required next day Las Vegas Nevada
Received a telephone call from Susan Kelly Operational Manager/Gaming Commissioner of American Direct Sweepstakes asking why I have not responded to my cash prize of $1.2 million. I responded by not knowing anything about this topic. Ms. Kelly informed me that notification was sent 6 weeks ago. I informed her that I never received any notification. She seemed not to hear and continued to badger me on the subject. I did not adhere and she finally gave me a telephone number that was supposedly the Dept. of Commerce in Washington D.C. Ms. Kelly told me to speak with an Officer David Carter in Fraud Div. and he would confirm the truth of my prize. David Carter told me the prize was ligitament and told me to send by wire $12000 to San Jose, Costa Rico to pay the insurance on the prize. He told me the insurance company was Lloyds of London. Later on a call back he changed to a person in Chesapeake, Virginia. the amount was increased to $13000. I was skeptical and went to the police fraud dept. I also called the telephone co. to confirm the phone no. for the Deot. of Commerce. The phone co. said the telephone no. was not the Dept. of Commerce and gave me the correct number. I called the Dept. of Commerce, which was closed, and request the validation of the names David Carter and his boss Stephan Johnson. They were not known. The police called and told me it was a scam from Nigeria. I called Stephan Johnson since David Carter was in a meeting and Stephan was his boss. I explained what was going and he faxed me the notification letter. After I received the fax I called Stephan Johnson to notify the receipt of the fax. I questioned him about the stipulation saying that I had 30 business days after notification to accept the prize. He told me I had to accept and send the $13000 tomorrow because I was notified 6 weeks ago.I informed him that I was notified today not 6 weeks ago. He said the rules are set and I must respond tomorrow and they had sent me a certified letter also over a month ago. I replied by saying that was untrue and if he had a receipt of a certifirf letter please forward a copy with my signature to me since I have not received a certified letter in years. He also had unsupported irrelivances for all the questions about the phone number, the unregonized names from the Dept. of Commerce, the police report about them,etc. David Carter and Stephan Johnson also gave badge their numbers since they were federal officers. The police officer gave me rip off report address. Julian National City, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Omega Meats Harassment comes knocking! Won't leave property. Calling the cops next time. Greensboro, North Carolina
Alright, about 3-4 weeks ago, a couple of guys pull up in a truck.  They claim that they have customers in the neighborhood, so they thought they drop buy and show us what they have in terms of meat/steak they have in stock that they simply do not want to take back with them.  Unfortunately, I was not at home, but my wife waswith our 3 kids.  They kept pressuring my wife to buy this and buy that.  We eat vegetarian a lot of the time, and we really were not interested in buying steaks out of a truck.  She told them this.  They didnt care. The tattered-looking salesman stayed at our house for over an hour and kept putting boxes of meat in the driveway for her to look through.  She was trying to get the kids in the car to go, but they wouldnt let her.  I think they had the driveway blocked.  Well, after pressuring her for over an hour, she bought a box of steaks for $60 just to get them out of the driveway.  She called me in tears and told me what happened.  She immediately called the company and told them about the salesman.  They acted shocked that one of their salesmen would act in such a way.  She said that she wanted to return the steaks.  She did not want them, nor were we going to eat them.  They started giving her the run around with Well, we dont know which salesman that was, so we will need to find out.  It may take a couple of daysblah, blah, blah.  Well, they have a policy on the package that they will take them back within a few days of purchase if we had any regrets.  I think that they were trying to stall so that we would surpass the deadline and we would have to keep them.  I wasnt putting up with it. I got on my banks website and put a stop on the check.  J My wife called back probably 4-5 times within the next couple of days to try to find out who/when someone would be coming  back to pick up the box.  They gave her the run around (big surprise!), then I started calling.  After about 2 calls from me, they decided that they were going to be sending a representative to come pick up the box but it would be the next week.  Fine. Sure enough, by the end of next week, a lady pulls up in her car and takes the steak from us after careful inspection.  The story should end here, right?  Wrong. Within 2 weeks, my wife received a phone call from someone at Omega wondering why theres a stop on our check.  She proceeded to explain what happenedagain.   They hung up.  A few days later, she gets another call from someone asking about a stop on the check. She said something like, Dont yall talk to each other????  Dont you know what happened??? Go ask the people that you work with and stop calling me!!!  And she hung up.  Atta girl! Dont buy from them.  Ever.  If you see them, ask them to leave.  If they refuse, call the cops.  They are trespassing. This is what I plan to do.

Accounts Recovery Corporation Contact my next door neighbour to give me a 'message' Burlington Ontario
My primary problem with this company is that they (Susan) phoned my neighbors today (02/13/09) posing as 'someone who knows me...a friend, left their name and number, and requested that my neighbors pass on the message to me. This seems quite wrong , if not downright illegal. Secondarily, over the past four months I have been working with ARC towards making a monthly payment plan towards my outstanding debt. Although they stipulate in their letters to me to 'contact our office to make payment through installments', they always, by phone, refuse to arrange this. They want me to pay a the whole sum in one payment (my credit card), and by phone (no paper work until after payment is made). Therefore I believe they are not willing to work with me.

Safeguard Properties Steals neighbor's belongings while securing a foreclosure next door. Valley View, Ohio
Safeguard Properties was hired to strip out Mike Moors neighbors rural property, mistakenly took thousands of dollars of his things instead. Included were: a backhoe, a boat and perhaps most important, family heirlooms. Now Mike Moors wants it all back, but the property recovery company that took his property wont tell him where it ended up. Theres stuff thats in those trailers thats worth a lot more than gold to me, Moors said. Moors is lamenting the loss of family photographs, a 100 year-old wood chest filled with his wifes childhood memories, even his wife's wedding dress. All that is left now of two storage trailers, are cinder blocks in the dirt. Moors, 53, and his wife have been planning to retire on the 10-acre spot, with a view of Coupland, Texas to the west. He hadnt been here in months, but a visit in late January revealed someone had broken into his barn. They just tore the place up, and they tore that timber in the barn out to get the backhoe out, he said, adding a boat was also missing. The motor, and trailer without wheels, were left behind. When Moors complained to Safeguard in February about the mix-up, they would only tell him they were looking into it. He is now working with a lawyer. For Moors, the loss is most painful when he recalls the contents of one trailer, where he said there were irreplaceable items. My wifes wedding dress was in there. You cant get those anywhere, he said. Every woman wants to give that wedding dress to her daughter. She wont be able to do that anymore. Safeguard Properties spokesperson Diane Fusco told KXAN they admit a mistake in this case. We want to be fair with him, she said. We are working with Moors to come up with a settlement as quickly as possible. Fusco said it's policy to not release any photos taken on the site or the name of the local contractor who did the work. She also said since several months have passed, Mr. Moors' property is likely disposed of.

On August 5, 2002 a nice, young man knocked on my door with the speal about winning a trip to Mexico. I was planning to purchase Cosmo anyways, and since he said it was cheaper than the regular subscription price, I figured why not. I questioned the price, because it didnt sound cheaper, but he was very reassuring and said he got double the points if I paid in cash. He even flirted with me and said he got to bring a date to mexico and asked if I'd like to go. I hurried and paid because I wanted him out of my house. Next time someone comes to my door, you can flirt, lie, and try to deceive me, but I promise to slam the f**cking door in your good-for-nothing face, until I get my $40 back!

Less than a month after that it developed a tapping in the engine at that time the engine was rebuilt, shortly after that it started overheating so we changed out the radiator and the fan. It still continued to overheat. around the end of june 08 ball joints and control arm bushing went bad they changed ball joints never did bushing. around July of 08 (girlfriend was in dire need to have a vehicle dr's appt every week of pregnancy) the water pump went out. dec 08 the fuel pump went out and was told ball joints were bad. and again in around feb 09 the fuel pump went out again. Throughout all this he had been unemployed since april 08, which dealer knew about.

On 11-26-04 we signed a contract with Fred Resnick of Momax Builders for $37,000. We were to get back $15,100 once he received the checks from the bank. We gave him the money and he did give check for $15,100 on 12-30-04 after number of times trying contact him. The check that he did gives came back NSF which caused or checking account to be -$12,000 because we had used the money to pay off some bills. We finally did get the $9,000 and a money order for $2900. We did received 2 company Momax Check for $1,900 but both are NSF. The only work that was done was the framing and some electrical. Momax did do work for us in the past back in 1999 and 2001 and we never had this much trouble. The last month has been a living nightmare.

SP SMOG Tried to scam money out of me for smog's shop mechanic friend who was next door. North Hollywood, California
I have been going to this smog station for at least 10 years and I have never had a problem. However, now that the son is working too and dad was on vacation, look out! I took my '93 Ford Taurus wagon (my second car) to be smog checked on May 24th 2010. Everything was going fine until I noticed the son (who seemed to be finished with the emissions test), was now hovering over the engine compartment as if in deep concern. 'What's wrong? I asked, he said, hold on, I'm going to get a mechanic who works next door to take a look at this. A few moments later out come the two speaking in their language, so I couldn't understand what they were saying. The mechanic who now joined us had a hand held strobe scope timing light (outdated equipment) and went to town trying to get a reading but there is a big problem. The son of the smog station says to me, I'm gong to have to fail you beacuse I can't get a timing reading from your vehicle. There is something missing from your crankshaft pulley so I can't read it with this timing light. You'll have to go next door with the mechanic who will repair the timing gauge for you, then come back and I'll pass you. Obviously, since times are tough our Smog Station son is trying to dig up some extra work and some cash for his next door mechanic friend. What the two also don't know is that I am also a certified ASE Mechanic in A1- engine repair! I now play along as if in deep concern over the current situation. Oh, Really? I say. I'm an ASE certified engine mechanic ( now a dismal look on both their faces), this is a 1993 Ford with electronic ignition it never had the piece you claim I need, in fact timing is non adjustable in this vehicle, but you should know that! So trying to read it with that hand held strobe is absurd since the timing is controlled by the computer, ignition coil, timing belt,engine rpm,etc., but you should know that!  Did my car pass the emissions test? Yes, the Son says. Good, could you please give me my smog certificate and I'll be on my way. Y..Yess.. ssir, s.. s.. sorry for the misunderstanding! I was lucky that I caught on to their little scam (having a little engine knowledge). Someone else with a little less know how will also have a little less cash if you dare to venture upon this Smog Station!

I'm in Canada and installed my magicjack using their supplied idaho area code.I turns out that everyone calling from any area code and prefix not the same as mine is charged long distance by their phone service.I contacted magicjack twice just to confirm it was correct .I can call out without long distance charges but no one can call me unless they have the same area code and prefix...Hard to berlieve anyone would find this thing useful unless they do loads of longdistance calling.. Now I am going to contact the few people who called me and pay for whatever charges are billed to bad thet dont tell you this before buying it .Even if I paid the extra $10.00while the area code would be the same here in town, the prefix also would have to be the same ..Anyone calling from a cel woul;d get caught ...What a ripp off Neil W, Calgary

Universal Events Inc. Next Generation Marketing Inc. Entry-level Job Scam Pleasanton California
Universal Events Inc. / Next Generation Marketing Inc. had contacted me for a job interview that turned out to be an entry-level scam. These 'two' companies contacted me seperately & unknowingly, but used the same phone number and address. This company tries to get you to interview for a job, and the next day for a job shadowing. During the job shadowing, they are basically looking for free work. They have no intention to give you a real job with upward movement.They claimed to be a 14 year old, international company with over 100 offices. Their website was only 5 months old and the company had no history on the internet or any record of the business even existing--besides the ones they had worked on themselves (facebook/linkedin/tumblr/pintrest/etc.).This scam is just like the Landers Group scam described here:

Quality Suites Central Colorado Springs Old hotel. No useable WIFI in either Quality Suites Central or Clarion next Door Colorado Springs Colorado
We made an online reservation and payment for two nights at the Quality Suites Central in Colorado Springs, for Friday, Sep 30, 2016 and Saturday, Oct 1, 2016.We have been Choice Members since March 2004. This is our first negative review in hundreds of stays. It almost caused to quit the Choice Hotels brand.We arrived early afternoon and there were almost no cars in the parking lot. We stood at the front counter for about 5 minutes and then we were asked to walk around to the other hotel front desk at Clarion. We checked in and went to our room which seemed really far from the front of the hotel. We later learned that all of the rooms are placed far from the two hotel’s front desks. We needed to drop off our luggage and get away to Pike’s Peak. My wife asked me to check the WIFI, and I’m glad I did. Only 1 bar and zero connectivity. The front desk woman Taylor W. instructed me to call a support number which was in Milwaukee. A bright tech named Corey and 35 minutes wasted, and no internet. Corey said it was an old system. We have multiple devices, none connected properly.We gathered our luggage and went way back to Taylor at the front desk. She offered us a room in Clarion stating their WIFI was better. No it wasn’t. Only 1 bar and zero connectivity. I called the front desk and Taylor offered us a free night to compensate us. Back at the front desk I decided to overlook the no WIFI and take the free night.As soon as I agreed, Taylor W. recanted said the free night was only a voucher for a later date valid only here! Wow, now this?We got the hotel owner Ted Jaroz involved. Unfortunately, Ted refused us the offered free night! We wasted a full two hours.So now, you get to read this negative review.We found another local hotel that is part of Choice Hotels also. The from desk manager said, “Oh no, you don’t want to stay at either Bijou street hotels”. I asked why and she said; “It’s old and run-down, has parking lot security problems with the homeless, and of course WIFI problems.”Our other Choice hotel was clean, new, and perfect WIFI.Thanks for reading… Greg & Carol.

I have read letters from others who have rec'd. these emails. I almost deleted this email, but it sounded like one of the ripoffs I had read about. They ask that I act as next of kin to a deceased Nigerian Engineer and I could then claim $USD31.5 million. Nuff said. Hope this is the place to notify. Joan Casa Grande, ArizonaU.S.A.
