This Company is the biggest scam I have ever seen. I started working here last year selling Vonage for Sales Experts INC in retail stores. They told me I would get paid hourly plus commission. When I got my first check which took over a month. I asked them where my hourly pay was and they then told me there wasn't any it was commission only. I worked 40 hours a week and barely made 200 bucks working for these guys. When I got the job I interviewed with some some guy at McDonalds that should of been a red flag but for whatever reason I went forward. When I expressed this issue with my manager he was no where to be found so I finally got ahold of the owner SHAWN  LEUTHOLD who first tried to deny he even knew of me. Then he finally admitted it was there mistake and he would correct it. He never did but it kept me working there for  couple more months. So then I called him back and to express my concerns and he once again apologized and told me he had a new campaign where I could just give the phones out for free instead of selling them. He even told me he would make me a manager so I went through with it. I came into my new office which we were sharing with someone else to meet my new team. Not much to my surprise there was no one assigned to my team. I then asked him what was going on and he told me I had to build my own. So I had to spend my own money posting adds buying tablets and materials for reps I finally built up a 10 plus man team and we were finally doing great numbers. The first week I got my override check I was told I would get a $3 ovveride. We did over 600 sales and I was only paid $300 in overrides. I was pissed. I then called him again and he told me that I was sharing the overrides with some manager I didn't even know. 

Then I was told I would be reimbersed for all the money I spent ordering sales materials tents tablets etc. This is another way they baited me into staying. Of course I was never reimbersed. Then for the cherry on top my team broke 700 sales in a week I did 150 of those personally and I was demoted to sales rep and I had to give up my team to some guy I didn't even know. On top of that I never got any overrides besides the $300 bucks. Then come to find out that we were supposed to have permits and I was told that the company paid for them and not to worry. My entire team got ticketed in Fresno. I called SHAWN  LEUTHOLD and he just hung up on me. In the meantime my team manager was trying to get us to sell for 2 phone companies on the spot because we were selling drop ship and we wanted to have phones on the spot too. This seemed super shady to me so I finally left. When it was all said and done I lost more money than I made working for this company. Sales Experts inc is the biggest scam in direct sales. They talk about how they have so many contracts with so many companies but they can't even hold one down. They are so disorganized their business model is literally to rip their employees off by strining them along. After doing my research it looks like I'm not the only one that got ripped off by Sales Experts INC. Not to mention half my reps never even received a check period. I was lucky for at least getting some money I know a lot of people who never got paid at all this company is a total scam. I left to go work for UPI they are way more organized I'm done working for mom and pop shops.

On the glassdoor website, there is a photo of the CEO of Sales Experts and his name is NOT the name of the attorney given in this report.

Attorney Shawn Leuthold Has Never Been Involved with Sales Experts, Inc.

AUTHOR: Law Office of Shawn T. Leuthold - (USA)

POSTED: Monday, October 17, 2016

I was shocked to see myself named in this report, as I have never heard of this business or the person reporting the rip-off.

After hours of investigation, I determined what likely happened. First, by way of background, I, Shawn Leuthold, am an attorney doing business as The Law Office of Shawn T. Leuthold. As an attorney in the Bay Area I handle business law matters and family law cases. Apparently Sales Experts, Inc. illegally and without my permission, listed me as "Agent for Service of Process" for their business. Agents for service simply receive legal notices on behalf of businesses. When the person wrote the rip-off report they apparently found my name associated with the company and they mistakenly assumed that I was the person they spoke with as "owner."  The fact is that I have never had anything to do with Sales Experts, Inc. I definitely have never spoken with the report's author about the company's business.

However, now that this report has been made and posted to the internet incorrectly claiming that I am involved with a business I had never heard of until today and that I treated the poster badly there will be severe, ongoing damage to my reputation. If the original poster does not immediately find some way to correct his mistake, it appears that I will have no choice but to file a lawsuit for defamation in order to get the defamatory post removed. Hopefully the author can confirm who the actual person in charge of Sales Experts, Inc. is and then convince Rip-off Reports to allow him to correct the original post to scrub my name from it -- and then remove this rebuttal, as I do not desire to be associated with this issue in any way. By the way, the president of Sales Experts, Inc. can be located through the following link:,-Inc.-530-591-5614  Perhaps this gives the author a good lead to follow up on.
