Re: scam - Job offer with Impact Worldwide

Boy am I glad I read this! I just received the SAME e-mail today about the interest in me for Scout Manager. That industry "does" appeal to me and I AM looking for a good job, so this is VERY disappointing for me. May I ask just how far you got with them? So it's a total rip off, huh? :confused:

Please write back.

No. Because there isn't such position. What they do is offer you a great sounding job (too good to be true) and later after you apply they will say that is not available and offer you a commission based bogus "job" which is more like a hobby really... You will be offered talent scout or casting mngr. The names behind this are Michael Fomkin and some others that were part of Wilhemina Scouting Network.
I don't believe at this point they do anything illigal with your resume info but you never know with such sleazy tactics! I am pretty sure offering fake jobs to job seekers is illigal. Ayman ****** was recorded performing one of their training sessions over the phone and proven he is involved with impactww. Google the name ****** and see for yourself!

Re: scam - Job offer with Impact Worldwide

I Just received the same email message about a Talent Search Firm seeking Talent Scouts. It is a good thing I check this out and found Scam.com.
I will place this email with Yahoo under Spam.

Thanks to all who were able to prevent this type of company from continuing to do business.

Re: scam - Job offer with Impact Worldwide

I have been working for the company since april 11th of 2006 as a casting manager. I am supposed to be recieving 78,000 per year plus commision. At this point the company owes me 6,620.20 and have not made any effort at paying me I filed a BBB report against them and this is what they said.

"LIndsey Waitley, Executive Administrator, has responded that according to the compensation outline you agreed to, you would not be eligible for salary until 90 days. She states you worked from 4/11-7/14 and that this is not 90 days, so you did not meet the requirements for salary. She states you are not owed any salary, only commission for the work completed. "

Do the math yourself. It's over 90 days.

That damn company! :mad:. I feel for ya buddy. Sorry, just had to vent. If I was you, I would sue the whole company and shut em down. These friggin scammers! If only I was a PI. I bet you were excited when you thought you were gonna 78,000 a year plus commission, then found out they lied. This is the kind of tragedy that drives people to drink and drug and even suicides. How these crooks can sleep at, I'll never know. Satan sure has a way of bringing evil to the planet.

The only problem with sueing them is I live in Texas and the company is in New York. I would have to go to New York to file a suit and I can't afford to do that.

Hopefully you can get other victims together to bring those scammers down. If you can't afford to go to New York to file a suit. The government, FBI, or DA should pay for your travel expenses.

It seems like the only way to make alot of $$$$$$$ is to be a con artist/scammer. What a sad society we live in. :mad:

Re: scam - Job offer with Impact Worldwide

Google "alec ******".
This type of job scam is one of his trade marks.

The scam is pulled nationwide.
Ask a lawyer about it.
Perhaps you can file criminal charges for embezzlement at your nearest FBI office.

Re: scam - Job offer with Impact Worldwide

I followed through with this opportunity till I hit this point. I do not think they are complete scams as much as not divulging what business you are in. This is basically a franchise model; you start your own business from scratch with support from the franchise corporation. Only difference is since you have invested nothing to this point there is not start-up return (ROI).
I was never interested in starting my own business and I wish they would have been honest and told me this from the beginning. :(

Read Below for details:


scout manager - getting started


you are now a Scout Manager with the world's largest and fastest growing scouting company. you know can't wait until your team is number one in the country. but what happens next? where do you go from here? this get-started section is a step-by-step outline to starting your career as a scout manager.



Phases

scout managers have two phases to their career. the first phase is learning about scouting. depending on the individual a scout manager will spend anywhere from 1 week to 1 month learning about scouting. every scout manager at Impact must go through this process. even impact ceo michael fomkin started as a scout. Impact will not allow someone to teach or manage someone if that person has not walked in those shoes.

while each scout manager must learn to scout, they do not have to be the best scout. Impact understands that the skill sets required to make a top scout manager will vary from the skill sets required to make a top scout. you have been hired as a scout manager. you have to learn to scout, but excelling at scouting is not why you were hired. how you do as a manger is more important. the following is a step-by-step guide to getting you to that point.



Phase 1 - Scouting

step 1 - read the training manual

the first thing you should do is read the training manual thoroughly, then read it again. the training manual is instrumental to your success as a scout manager. the first part discusses scouting; the second part discusses being a scout manager. it is critical that you have a full understanding about both parts. understanding scouting will help you manage scouts.



step 2 - business cards

to be a scout, you must have business cards. you are responsible for purchasing your own business cards. you can purchase them through a local printer or through our approved national vendor. (after 250 enrollments you are reimbursed for cards if you choose to go through an approved vendor.)

go to the business card section and follow the directions.



step 3 - schedule first training session

once you have your cards, go to the training section and schedule your first training. pick a time and a date and you will be assigned a call in number and a pin number. this will log you into the first training.



step 4 - attend training

the initial training will last about 90 minutes. it will consist of three 20 - 25 minute sessions and three 5 - 10 minute Q & A sessions. you should have the following ready for the conference call:
