cincycostsavers.comdoes not pay

J Review updated:

I started working for the company in the begining of february. I was told I would start at $9 an hour and I would receive my first check in 2 weeks. The 2 weeks came and I didn't get a check. I asked the owner (donna van dyne) what was going on. She told me that checks had to be mailed to her accoutant in louisville, ky and that they would be mailed the following week. When I finally received my check it was for $8 an hour instead of the $9 I was told it would be. She told me that she never said that I would start at $9. I liked being able to work from home and doing the job. I set up appointments with small businesses. It came time for the next pay check and the day checks were suppose to be mailed her daughter suddenly got in an accident and she had to go out of town. It took me 3 weeks to get that check and it was 4 hours short. So it was time for the next check and I was told it was in the mail. Monday come and I still had no check. She told me that wednesday that her office landlord had called and told her there was mail that was not sent because of postage. I asked if she was going to get them and get them mailed that day. She told me yes but I have to wait till 10am because the office don't open till then. Come friday still no check. I was not able to get a hold of her through email or by calling all weekend or even monday morning. I finally sent her an email telling her if I didn't hear from her I would be contacting a lawyer. Then an hour later I get an email from a lawyer saying that there was a bank error and that checks would be a week to 10 days late. The 10 days passed and still no money. I have received emails stating she would no longer except emails from me and I could call her. I only had 1 phone number for her and no one ever answers. Ever time she called it come up private. I finally called her lawyer and come to find out she is not her lawyer. She told me that donna had stopped in there 1 day and asked her to send me that email but that is all she knows. I am still owed money from her. I have left message after message and have had no return phone call. She has now canceled her emails because they all are undeliverable. This women is a big liar and scammer. Please everyone avoid dealing with her at all cost. You can't believe anything she says and she don"t pay!!! I almost forgot. She has 2 websites www.cincycostsavers.com and louisvillecostsavers.com. And the company name is results in advertising.

    @dohnasuks Why is every address that has been used for this "company" a vacant lot or a house? no real address exists for this so called "company". so it's internet based and a scam. the businesses who use this service need to be made aware of the snake they are dealing with. especially when she uses the "company" to gain access to be able to talk donations out ofthe businesses for her charity, wich is registered... but the real problem here is that she doesnt realise just how many people she has burned... after the dummy has revealed that she makes money for herself using the non profit charity as a tool to sell things donated to it out of her back door. flag this on too donna.. you wont be able to flag the proof that has been sent to federal law enforcement. you really are a dumb dog, especially considering how many times they have in print of you yourself admitting to illegal activities.

    Donna has disorderly conduct convictions as well as felony convictions for theft of property. She is also under investigation for fraud and for a number of other criminal acts in multiple states. All info is public record available on websites of the courts in the states and counties where applicable. Donna is beyond up the creek without a paddle. Donna is the bottom feeder of the bottom feeders. A sorry excuse for a person who ever was. Today donna will learn that her playtime is over. Today, donna will be served with the justice she most definately deserves. I will personally see to her facing the people she screwed and will also personally see to her being put away in prison where she belongs. More info of all of donnas convictions to come. I had no problem spending the money to do a criminal backround check on this beast so I can share it with all of you and nail that [censor] bucket to the wall.

I have the login information from Godaddy who did this and I will be filing criminal charges against them. It is a federal offense to hack into someones website...I am pressing charges I know who did this. It doesn't affect me it affects the 150 clients from all three sites. It is on their contracts that we are not responsible if the site is down for more than two days. Good luck to you...Charges are being filed on Monday morning I have your physical address and I will be providing this to the detective. Good luck, cause once again this is a federal offense!!!

    @donna D Funny how that never happened donna. You are a fricking [censor]. You are the dumbest wanna be con I have ever met. Every positive comment about you is you. Your ip address I can garuntee is attached to every comment. ([censor]) I can also prove that you are a thief, a liar, a forger, an embezzler, wanna be extortionist, and an identiy thief. Donna daskevics van dumb butt. Convicted felon. And soon to be again. I have notified the fbi and all federal entities about all of your front companies and scams. Also the attorney general of ohio, kentucky, indiana, michigan, and illinois as well as the other cities you think you are safe in. Including the irs who is very interested to see a few things. One of wich being that "non profit" lie you think you will get away with. I have proof that you sell and have sold donated merchandise that was given to charity for your own benefit. I can also prove that you let a recovering alchoholic run a beer cart at a festival and nearly got him kicked out of the home he lived in. I had to personally help this man, who had passed out on the floor by the cart, out of the building and to his group home where he was almost kicked out for coming back drunk. I also had a conversation with a man who was working with you and was furious that you had some kid load up your car with cases of softdrinks that were for the festival to sell to someone you said you had waiting for them. I heard you say it so please deny it. Not only that, I know who bought them as well as several cases of snack chips. I alos know that there are several criminal complaints filed in at least 5 different townships and cities in the cincinnati area alone. And the state of kentucky has a long list of your dirty deeds. You are a vile cancer of a being. You are far from human, not even animal. Animals even the lowest form have one thing you never will. A brain. And that daughter she says got into a car wreck etc. Left the country and hasnt spoken to this piece of garbage in years. To bad donna has to be so dumb. Too bad donna scammed people. Too bad donna is so stupid that she didn't even realize that a private investigator has been investigating her for a few months now. Too bad donna doesnt remember that she runs off at the mouth to the wrong people all the time cause she thinks that shes above everyone and is rich. Too bad donna doesnt remember. Doesn't remember that she spoke to me. Took my money. Scammed my family and then tried to accuse us of "hacking" her and causing damage to her home. Too bad donna lied. And too bad donna thought she had a friend to confide in when she tried to get someone she recently met to sell drugs and stolen merchandise for her with a promise of... And I quote "we can make some good money with the things I can get donated to me, because I am allowed to decide what to do with the things we get, and I will gladly give you a share for your time and help".in case you try to deny that one too. I have the email you sent. Ya dummy. This is how smart donna is, not to mention the names and companies she tries to use in her lies and extortion attempts. You will soon discover what all this means donna, you will soon be going back home. This time to federal prison. Hope you enjoy the late christmas present. You [censor]

    I'm the current designer who also just got scammed. Her website started to redirect to here last night or this morning. She was supposed to pay me $275 for the two months I've been working but then she said her daughter got into a car accident so she had to go out town. I refused to fix her website and told her I would only do it if she mails me a check that I can cash to pay all of you what you are owed. What a horrible person.

    SO glad this is being resolved. She scammed me in 2013 as a college student. She owes me probably $800.
    I did design work for her and she was the most harassing client of all time. She would call me at all hours of the morning or night. Changed deadlines from being a week away to needing it RIGHT NOW. The check she wrote me was declined. Which by the way, being a poor college student, made me overdraw my account. At this point, I already had a bad vibe about her. I didn't realize till too late that she had given me two different names during our initial talks (which I verified looking back at emails and voicemails.). t looked her up online and realized I wasn't going to get paid so I stopped all communication.
    That resulted in numerous emails, phone calls and voicemails to my cell phone. Not only that, but she looked up my PARENT'S home phone number and called them multiple times and left multiple voicemails trying to reach me. She's insane.
    I tried to be so patient and understanding with her and she completely wasted my time and gave me unneeded anxiety. Who scams a student struggling to pay for college? WTF

    I don't know how it is that she hasn't been arrested yet. She needs to be caught. You'd think that stealing the jewelry would have done her in.

    Unfortunately, 1. She knows how to cheat the system, 2. (from my experience) The police won't comply as long as it sounds like a "civil dispute", and 3. Civil lawsuits do nothing because of her fake addresses. She can't be serviced.

    If only we could get someone's attention with this.

    That is a lie Donna. I told you in advance I was not going to buy anything and neither was my friend. You said that was fine. Now you have changed your tune. And yes, you would have gotten the credit card info because you badgered one of my friends for her to send you a copy of the email she sent to the rep regarding her order. That email included her personal cc information. Then you tried desperately to get their phone numbers from me and got mad when I refused. You even said "Are you AFRAID to give me their numbers???". Then you got mad because they DID order through the rep instead of through you. Then you called me and tried to get me to place an order with YOU for merchandise I had already told you I did NOT want. If anyone here is rude it is definitely you. Furthermore, I am not going to use this site to argue with you and your attitude.

    Left the state, I am here I never left the state. I invited you and your friends kathy to my home you arrived 30 minutes and you ate my food and didn't order anything. why attend a jewelry party if you were not going to order anything? you just wanted to see where I lived. you brought two people with you and only one ordered something. that was rude!!!
    I could care less about getting peoples personal information, did you realize I already had your addresses in order to send you an invitation. think before you accuse. the credit card info wouldn't go to me in the first place, you order on line. nothing would go to be it goes directly to the company through the internet. you should really watch your accusations...
    By the way, there is a difference between writing a bad check and a stop payment check... once again, you shouldn't come to someones home and bring your friends and eat their food and not buy anything. why do??? that was rude!!!

    Donna daskevics was almost able to scam me and my friends a few months ago. she joined up with a jewelry company and had a home party. since my friends and I did not supply her with personal information but chose to go through the jewelry rep who gave the presentation, donna tried her best to get that information through harassing phone calls and emails. I realized that there was something wrong since she was so extremely aggressive so no info was given to her. she must have realized that by having a home party she would gain access to people's home address, phone number, checking account information and/or credit card number. beware! I was told she left the state with $700 worth of jewelry from the company by passing them a bad check. apparently the company filed a police report. mr matarese may be interested in following up on this as well.

    I am original poster and would like anyone to contact me who is owed money. I am hoping we can all work together to try to receive the money we are all owed. This is ridiculous and she needs to be stopped. I did contact John with channel 9 again to try to get a story done and would like others to do the same.. My email is [email protected] Please email me and I will contact you back within 24 hours. Thanks.

    Boy am I glad I found this. I knew I would find something, and I was certain that she had done to others what she had done to me.

    My story starts when I discovered her through the Career Services board on my college's website. I found her flier asking for a Graphic Artist. I thought this was perfect because I would love to have an art job, since I am an artist alongside my CIT major. This job would have been perfect for me to do even while I was in school.

    When I first talked to her, I thought things were a bit sketchy. First of all, her phone number showed up as "Restricted" on my caller ID. For my interview, she wanted me to meet her at a McDonald's in Blue Ash, Ohio. A McDonald's. I thought about not taking the job at all because that's what my gut feeling was telling me, but not knowing about her reputation at the time, I didn't know what to tell her, so I went with it.

    For work, I had been doing graphic design as promised. The goal of her website is to advertise small businesses and post coupons related to them on the site. My job was to make the businesses' fliers and upload them to the site. I also ended up managing a page of movie listings every week, and I ended up doing her IT work as well which included managing the website, and at one point saving one of her sites when something went wrong and it went down. None of that was in the original job description. Keep in mind, as of now I have only had a year or so of my CIT education, so I don't know how to do everything. When I told her I didn't know how to do something, she promptly guilt tripped me. "Well what am I supposed to do!?" She should have found a real IT person with experience. She was lucky to find an artist who happened to have the knowledge that I did.

    After a few weeks, I had received no information on when I was going to be paid, aside from casually mentioning how much she would be giving me for completing these tasks. Finally I asked her about it, and she told me she would give me what she owed me the next time we met. Of course it's a little odd that an employer would make someone meet them in person in order to pay them. When the time came, she conveniently fell ill and was taken to the hospital, preventing her from meeting that day. (That information was given to me by her Sales Rep, Susan, whom I have doubts even exists.) Next, she promised to meet me another day, and because she wasn't allowed to drive due to her condition, she had to wait for her husband to get home, who was stuck in traffic. After that, there was a bad storm which she used as an excuse to tell me a tree had fallen on her house and she was once again unable to meet. You can see where I'm going with this.

    I will admit there were two times where it was my fault that I could not meet. My GPS had malfunctioned due to a failed product update on my phone, causing me to get lost on the way. She promptly took the opportunity to use this against me. By the time I was finally able to meet with her, she had only $300 of what she owed me. $100 in cash for compensation for an account I had to buy for the website's host, and a $200 check, which as soon as I got home with it, she immediately told me not to cash it, telling me the check was for the "petty cash account where only $100 can be taken out at a time". I heeded this because she told me she would have two new checks next time we met, plus the rest of the money she owed me. This of course never happened, and I kept the check for evidence.

    I ended up working for her for 3 months, and she managed to hold onto me for an additional month, claiming I had to give her a 30-day notice before leaving if I wanted to get paid. Obviously that never happened either. In total, she owes me $1, 058. Sadly I'm a patient and nice person who hates conflict, and that's why this went on for so long.

    But that's not all: Once everything was said and done, I went to small claims court and filed a lawsuit against her. When the day came, it turned out the address she had posted on her website was fake and the summons was returned. Luckily I found another address within my evidence that I used for the second time. That time, the certified mail was never claimed, so they resent it through regular mail. There was no word otherwise, so when she was a no-show at the court on the final day, it was ruled in my favor.

    I'm currently waiting for my time to collect. In the meantime I have done some research on her, due to a strong suspicion that "Daskevics" was not her real name. There were no results for "Donna Daskevics" on Spokeo or other people-searching sites. That was when I came across this complaint site. She runs a completely phony business under a phony name. I am in the process of taking her to the authorities now, and I've even sent an email to John Matarese with this same story. This can not and should not continue. I hate seeing people taken advantage of, (especially artists, since it tends to happen a lot) and I will do everything in my power to achieve justice.

    I cannot believe this woman is aloud to walk the streets freely. I am one of her latest. victims.. she owes me over $400 and refuses to pay for reasons that are ridiculous.. she claims I did not turn in proper notice that I was quitting and didn't turn in my hours so I will not be paid. and I can absolutely tell that the previous comments where they praise her and say no one has complained is clearly written by her.. anyone that has spoken to this lunatic would recognize her tone and way of speaking. she is nothing but a professional com woman who needs to go back to prison.. yes.. I said back.

    Sure would be nice to have a local news station do a story and see how many people she has really screwed! To get her name and company name out there and maybe stop her from screwing others over. This has been going on for far too long!

    She will continue to screw people. I still haven't received a penny of court ordered judgement and the has interest keeps building. Last I contacted her she threatened to sue me for the original post and said her lawyer was dealing with it. That was December 2012. So she owes me over 2 years interest as well. I know I wasted my time and money though. You would think if she was such a honest and good person she would take care of it. She knows she owes has done nothing other than threaten to sue me.

I have tried to call companies on website. they say she is annyoiing and difficult to deal with, but no one wantsd to help shut her down. she deserves nothing like she gives everyone. karma!!!

    Wish I had seen this before. she has (or uses) a different last name. she has one address on web site. told me to come to a different one to get my check. she did not have an office there. I worked for 18 days and no pay. now she says it is her husband who is sick. I am going to fight to get her off the streets and being a fraud. she acts like everyone is dishonest - it is her and susan.

    New name to look out for:donna daskevics
