Telemarketing scam in Hoboken?

Man tries exposing “workers scam” at Diamond Enterprises

6:10pm Update:

The guy that posted that video earlier went down to the Hoboken Business Center today to try and “spread the word” of what he believed to be a “workers scam” at Diamond Enterprises in Suite 215.

He certainly wasn’t greeting with a warm welcome, and many expletives were exchanged with the owner and management. No word on whether he has a legitimate complaint – or is just a disgruntled ex-employee trying to avenge his unpleasant experience there previously.

Scam operation allegedly up to no good at Hoboken Business Center

11:59am:
Apparently – there is some kind of scam telemarketing operation going on at the Hoboken Business Center downtown at 50 Harrison Street.

As blogger Gregory Lions said on his Daily Annoyances blog – apparently this operation “hires” people to make appointments and attract leads, promising payments of up to several thousands of dollars, only to get shafted with little to no money because “appointments didn’t show up.”

This business has “no name” at the HBC – but supposedly goes under the name “Diamond Enterprises of Broward,” and is based out of Florida. The website that baits unsuspecting shmoes is at http://vacationgift.net/ (201)608-4528 is apparently the number they use.

See more below. Another Craigslist scam!

Rebuttal to the Ridiculous & False Allegations against Diamond Enterprises of Broward & its Affiliates. There are 2 sides to every story so we are hoping you read this rebuttal with an open mind & do not judge this company from what one disgruntled ex-employee alleges without fully understanding what the job entails. First of all, we wanted to thank everyone that is reading this report as it shows you are a very educated person just trying to do research on a company. We give all of our reps a full accounting of every single appointment they write with the phone numbers so you are able to call them back, find out why they didn’t show up & reschedule them. Quite often, they always show the second time around. How would you be able to perform your job properly if you’ve quit after a week? We all get paid on commission, based on the customer showing up to the presentations. We have reps that have made in excess of over $1,000 in a week & have the paycheck stubs to prove it. We also have the same reps working with us since inception. You will never find a company that is more dedicated to helping their reps make a nice living every week. “From working 10 AM -10 PM every day verifying every appointment that is written” to “Solidifying the Appointment with the spouse re-pitching the deal for you” to “Confirming every appointment the day before & the day of”… Read more »

Can’t Darwin’s Law apply here too? Anyone who falls for jobs promising big returns with little skill or effort probably had it coming. There’s one born every minute.

Yes, Spiffy, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is…
On the other hand, when the economic picture is this bad, people are desperate to find a job, ANY job, and are willing to try things they wouldn’t consider under normal circumstances. I hope you’re never in the position to hear someone say that, “You had it coming”, when you try to get an honest job.[quote comment=”214536″]Can’t Darwin’s Law apply here too?
