If you read nothing beyond this point, please follow this link or go to the Illinois Attorney General’s Office website and search their press releases yourself for the April 22, 2009 release to verify its validity:

“MADIGAN FILES LAWSUIT AGAINST INTERNATIONAL PROFIT ASSOCIATES FOR CHEATING HUNDREDS OF SMALL BUSINESSES OUT OF THOUSANDS
Attorney General Says Buffalo Grove Consulting Firm
Practiced Wide-Scale Fraud”

My name is Carmen Buscemi and I have owned an auto repair shop in Phoenix, AZ for 20 years. My customers are mostly referred by word-of-mouth, and my long-standing clients will attest to the reason for their loyalty is because they know I am fair, honest, and trustworthy.

I found through personal experience IPA is a well-oiled machine designed by their managing director, John Burgess, a DISBARRED ATTORNEY CONVICTED OF ATTEMPTED GRAND LARCENY. Any contract you see from them is expertly designed to exploit you later, NOT protect you and IPA in a legitimate business arrangement.

What you will receive, not for hundreds or even thousands of dollars, but TENS of thousands of dollars, a one-inch binder with generic material, a hand-printed CD with digital copies of this same generic material, a few spreadsheets, and an EMPTY BANK ACCOUNT.

My story is repeated consistently across the Internet and again in the Illinois Attorney General’s press release. IPA also appears to be expert in propaganda and strong-arming their victims into silence, which put YOU at higher risk.

    Carmen, thank you so much for those articles. Do you have a link to the story of your personal experience with IPA? and how do they strongarm the victims into silence?
