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.

I have worked for louisvillecostsavers for two years now and I have never had any prombles with getting paid on time. there are a total of five employees here in the louisville office and three in cincinnati and no one has any complaints against donna or the company. she is a great person to work for if you give 100% she will in return. perhaps the reason you didn't get paid is because you didn't get appts like you were suppose to. I know donna always starts people out at $8.00 an hour, why do you think you would be different? I am proud to work for the company I feel we offer a great service to the small business owner and my clients are happy with their results and I am proud to have donna as a boss. there are two sides to every story and I am glad I was able to say my side. you better be careful of a slander suit... betty thomas office manager

I just wrote my comment. I have never had any problems with Donn getting paid or even working for her. She is a good boss, and very understanding too. I know that Donna has always started people out as an AS $8.00 an hour I don't know why this person would think otherwise. I am the office manager I know how much she pays. I have never and none of us has had problems getting paid. I know this person as tried to cause problems for Donna slandering her name and companys name all over. Donna has a great company and her advertisers love her. She works very hard for them. I have been involved with her for over two years and never had any problems . I feel people shouldn't accuse without proof, and the negitive remarks aren't right and if I was Donna I would file a law suit against her for saying such negitive remarks. Most people that know Donna are just ignoring it and if any clients ask we all stick up for her, cause we know better...

I have been working for cincycostsavers since april and I have had no problems what so ever. everyone is nice to work with and donna is a great boss. at times she can be rather demanding but she is a very hard worker and I have talked to some of her advertisers and they all seem to like the site. I have also met and talked to employees past and present and I haven't heard one negitive remark about the company or her. I think alot of times people try to cause trouble cause of being jealous. I read the above letter and I wanted to let people know that I have never had any problems with getting paid, or the company in general. I feel donna has been very generous with us by giving us bonuses and extras that benefit our families. I have no idea what this person jessica is talking about I have had no problems and no one else has had problems. isn't it funny, she is the only one who has had problems??? makes you think if there is a problem with her. if you have tele-marketing experienced and looking for a part time job call donna and see if she is hiring. I would recommend her and infact I have my sister in law works for her too. thank god!!! for donna and cincycostsavers, it has really helped out me and my family. I will pray for jessica that she finds other things to do with her time than to cause trouble to people who do not deserve it...

I worked for donna a few years ago and by looking at these comments I can see that the only truth in this thread is from the original poster. the comments were clearly posted by her. once you work for her long enough you get to know her tone in written text. not only her word choice, but even the grammatical errors in these comments are a clear indicator that she is the author. let me make it clear that the original poster speaks thr truth. my situation was nearly the same as the original poster's. this woman (donna van dyne) has a criminal record, and I see she's still not smart enough to change her story. if you ever want to be treated fairly and make any money, do not work for her and bring your business somewhere else, because she lies about the amount of views her site gets. she lies about everything, even down to her "daughter" and "accountant".

Results in advertising, llc is not registered and does not exist with the secretary of state's office in ohio — you might want to check the owner out more carefully before doing business with her.

I forgot to mention that she is a habitual liar and is a smooth talker. Dealing with her is like dealing with a person that is all over the map. Type her name in "google" and you will find that she was charged with 4 counts of deception (felonies). That's why she is doing this work -- she can't get a regular job. I bet she even typed all the favorable responses on this post herself using different names. Once a criminal always a criminal in Donna's case.

I agree with the complaint and there is proof that she does not pay for the work people do for her!! a friend of mine has a judgement against her in a court of law. she has been ordered numerous times to pay those wages, and yet has not. how honest is a person who doesn't pay even after they are court ordered? not at all! next step, jail time and I will be there to take the pictures! she has caused irreparable harm to my friend and her family by withholding payments for her time and efforts and work done perfectly! after 20 years working on the net, I know a scammer when I see one, and cincycostsavers.com is the scam of the decade!

http://opinions.kycourts.net/coa/2007-CA-001991.pdf I guess this will PROVE it for all and KNOW she has violated as my friend sued her last spring and won. Wonder if the Judge knew that this was not her first time around screwing people!!

I repaired her car and she wrote me a check for 1200.00. I cashed it and then she stopped payment on it. She sent me to multiple places saying she was leaving the check with employees and nothing. She is a habitual liar and cant even remember her stories. Do not do business with her or thust her in any way shape or form.

I am the original posted and thought I should update my situation. I took donna to small claims court to try to get what is owed to me. I did win my judgment. I won my judgment because she signed for the court summons but never showed up for court. therefore she admitted her guilt. even though I won my case and she has been court ordered to pay me I still have received nothing. my next step will be taking her back to court and have the judge get her bank account information so they can take it directly from her account. they have informed me that if she does not show up for this court date to provide the information she will have a warrant issued for her.in all honesty she belongs in jail where she can't screw anyone else. I can see by the other postings she has been up to this for a while and continues to do so. if anyone is reading this before you do business with her be assured that the postings made by her employees that are happy with her is really just her posting to try to look good. this woman knows nothing other than how to make up stories and lies. avoid her at all cost!!!

The person that posted this is correct.
This woman is a thief, liar, and does not pay her workers.
Avoid her. Don't fall for her lies and traps.

This is all her. Her maiden name is Donna L Pyne before marrying Edward Vandyne, where she became Donna L Vandyne.


Look her up some more. You'll find a bunch of stuff.
None of us are lying. I can only hope that people find this before they are put into the same situation as us.

Donna asked me to steal work/pics and info from google searches to use in on her louisville webpage. being a self respecting graphic designer, I refused. In turn she failed to pay me. She is a pile of ###.

I worked for her for 6 months and it was hell. everything stated here is true. well, except for the random comments that she made pretending to be someone else. I did eventually get money from her, but I literally wasn't paid until I worked for her for four months. I think she still shorted me a little, too. she tries to make you feel like you didn't do well, and that you took too long, so she has a reason to not pay you. well, maybe I didn't try very hard because you weren't paying me. after all my threats of taking everything I made down, she did finally pay me on a couple occasions, but of course both times "forgot" some checks, and I had to nag the hell out of her to get them. her daughter is always sick or injured. she is the excuse queen. this woman needs to be behind bars. if she didn't end up paying me, she would've been sued, again.

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

I could not figure out how to erase my post. I would like to say that donna has agreed to pay and I will not be posting anymore negative comments. Our agreeemnt has been satisfied.

I had put that donna agreed to pay, because she said if I did she would pay me what she owed me. she did not. she said check was on the way. then said I gave her the wrong address and fed ex delivered it. now she will not return any emails. she is a liar, fraud, scam. 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!!!
