JBS Processing, Johnny Bono / Fraud! Scam!

1 Las Vegas, NV, United States Review updated:

JBS Processing is a fraud and scam company! They make unsolicited phone calls to vulnerable individuals to try to sell their services. Their services are worthless and when they don't make you the money that they promise you, they try to make you spend more money. They will also threaten you by telling you that you won't make any of the money you've spent back if you don't invest more with their company.

    Hi i have been a victim of this...i was called out of no where and they convinced me to sign up for $50. Then in two days this guy claims to work for some guy name Johnny Bono and he got great picks and that im wasting my time with their $50 start up trial offer. (Then why did they convince me that i would make money if im wasting my time.) So after you tell them no and coutless i dont want...tehy do everythign the y can to convince you..like talk you down like your missing out or they tell you things that make you feel like you have to get in on it. So this guy tells me to get this package for their "Silver Spoons" for $4, 000 (more on this later) and that they guarantee 65% by a certain date or i dont pay. But in order to show that im "SERIOUS" i should put down $2, 000. So i did, only a week into the thing and guess what they are trying to "CONVINCE" me to pay off the rest becasue they will hit their 65% target...by the way...this is the part you or anyone reading this should watch out for...they called me and guarantee me things like 65% by this date or that date but when they send me to payment...they do this...its like bait and switch...they start saying this is only entertainment and they cant guarantee the results..so i deny payment and stuff...then the agetn or whatever calls me back and says that they guarantee it and that its nothing to worry about...but they dont record what the guy says they record when you make payment...so after all that..i wasnt suppose to pay again until the 65 percent coems through by march 1st...but they try to convince me to pay it off early which is a trick so whatever happens your not gonna ge tit back...after many no's they bring out the big scam where they PRETEND to give you bonuses for paying it off early with their picks even higher than their SILVER SPOONS...so they convinced me...so when the time of march 1'st almost came about 5-6 days before that...i realize they are no way in hell gonna hit their 65 percetn...so i called the guy and asked aobut my refund...guess what they refused and even more ###ED UP was they tried to SELL ANOTHER PACKAGE for $3, 500.00 saying that i need to get in on this package to really make money and that the package sold to me...in which i was suppose to g3et refund...is not good..SO WHY THE HELL DID THEY SELL ME THE PACKAGE IF ITS NOT AS GOOD AS A PACKAGE THAT COST $500.00 LESS...AND STILL NO REFUND...I have been talking and even dispute with my credit card company that these people swindelled me for money and was suppose ot give me refund but the credit card ruled in there favor becasue i dont have enough proof...the only thin gi have was a reciept they sent for PURCHASES...and get this...teh $2, 000 taht was reaming to pay off for bonuses...THEYT CHARGED THAT AS PURCHASE PICKS...so dont get cheated like i did...learn form my mistakes...I will be taking these people to court if possible..i will talk to a lawyer and see what can be done becaue cheaters and scandlers like this should not be able to get away...to the credit card companies...### THEM FOR NOT PROTECTING THE CONSUMER.

    They did the same exact thing to me, but got even more money from me. My credit card companies also said there was nothing they could do since I agreed to previous lower purchases. TOTAL SCAM!! I'm also looking into private litigation, but these guys are so slimy, it will be tough, especially since I don't live in Nevada (where they supposedly operate out of).

    I got a call from this company and told them to wait 3 weeks before I consider this product. The first week the "7-day pick special" was 50 bux and the second week the same "special" was 30 bucks, but I would qualify for a special discount for 20. I still refused, and I got a call for the third week for the same "special" to be 10 bucks. I was about to make the purchase (didn't give out the home address), when I googled JBS processing and johnny bono sports and saw these complaints/scams. Joe (the telemarketer) told me to "hold on a sec" and asked the next guy over what he should do. I oveheard these guys saying "wtf, ask him for his street address, or just what city, or just what house number and we can find out the rest." I hang up, get a call from his boss, JJ and this guy just chews me out like a football coach. This whole business appears unethical and utilizes extreme agressive sales tactics. For example, when they tell you an offer, they follow up with "now, is that mastercard or visa?" They also allegedly claim that one person made over a million dollars by working with the company for 6 years.
    If this company is that successful, why doesnt it have a legitimate webstie, and why when you google JBS Processing or Johnny Bono Sports you only get complaints? Furthermore, if they use such aggressive sales tactics and continue to call/harass me numerous times, they are obviously desperate for clients. If they are so successful, why would they waste time to repeatedly contact the same potential clients (who are reluctant to join) and offer a cheaper promotion for each succeeding phone call? If they were really that good, they would be a members only company and offer membership to a set number of clients (which is obviously not the case). Allegedly, everyone pays $250/week for the "insider information" on sports games - there is no exclusivity here and they appear to be full of absolute decietful lies. I highly doubt there are any fixed games in any sports season - these guys are a bunch of charlatans.

    @jkfj LOL the fact is that they have multiple guys that work the start of NFL thru the end of March madness and make about $500, 000+ off of guys like you, I know because I have used to work in the processing department and would call the clients, sometimes for orders of $15, 000 to $20, 000 orders, and would talk to the clients on a tape recording where they (you) have verbal authorization to charge their (your) credit cards, right after I had just told you this is for entertainment and no guarantee can be made as to the outcome of the events, and yet they (you) gave clear authorization, on tape, to charge your card. There is nothing illegal about it, you're a big boy, you answered the phone, you have your rep your cards exp date, acct number, cid number, as well as the address associated with the card (because we can't run your care without it ;-), then you answered a tape recorded call and gave authorization to run said card, after plenty of legal heads up that there are zero guarantees regarding betting, and more than one chance to say no don't run my card, but you gave authorization to charge the card, so quit your crying and lying about how you were duped or scammed. You are supposedly a grown man who willingly gave your CC info for a service you knew had a chance of losing because even children know you can't guarantee winners in sports betting. So the fact that you are bitter, and obviously a sore loser and decided to come online and lie about and defame a company that holds an A+ rating with the BBB in a business that has been around for decades is just pathetic. JBS didn't scam you, you were afforded every chance to tell us no, or better yet not give your rep your CC info, or even better yet, not answer the phone, is just pathetic and shows you are just a bitter sore loser with extremely poor character. Next time you willingly give a company your CC and recorded authorization to run that CC, maybe man up and show a little more backbone and character and accept responsibility for your choices instead of going on internet forums crying and lying and defaming a legitimate business. The fact of the matter is this; There are sharks and there are guppies. The Sharks eat the guppies (you) and that's why they live in half million dollar houses and drive hundred thousand dollar cars while marrying model wives while you're on some forum crying and lying over a few dimes that you willingly paid them so they can eat filet mignon and lobster while you eat hamburger helper. LMFAO such a crybaby sucker...

    This is hilarious!!! First off, why do you people believe everything you read on the inet? I'm sure you believe in the tooth fairy too. Maybe if you had a backbone and were able to say the word no you wouldn't be living behind your computer, or bad mouthing other when you have no facts. Son Nguyen (first post) should not be gambling! Careful what you put in writing, what goes around comes around. Do Not bad mouth other companies or people. It's a shame you couldn't get your money back, I guess they are not scammers after all are they?

    These are comments from a few people that should not be gambling, nor slandering others as this will be continued through litigation.

    The three of you might want to retract your statements.

Then he gave me a pick for Friday nov, 13 2009 for dallas nba -11 on the road. lol. but told me to put only 50$ on it because he doesnt want to gimme the silver spoon pick since i m not spending the 950$.

    @Billis21 You mean you set yourself back 3 years financially, right? God you losers are pathetic. I worked in the processing department (verification) and spent all day talking to you guys on a tape recording where you were told that this is for entertainment and there are no guarantees in sports betting, and you all happily gave full authorization to charge your credit cards. Are you not a full grown man? Did someone hold a gun to your head and force you to answer the phone and then pull your credit card out and read the exp date, acct number, cid number, as well as the full physical mailing address for the card, because all that info, plus a tape recorded authorization is needed to run the card, and that is all info you willingly gave. What kind of man are you? Did your father not teach you about taking responsibility for your own actions? He probably did, but you are just a greedy degenerate gambler who takes to online forums and cries and lies about legitimate members of the BBB because you need someone to blame for you terrible decision making. Anyone who reads these forums should know one thing; JBS has hundreds and hundreds of satisfied happy customers, yet there are a handful of degenerate losers who can't stand to lose who take to forums and defame and lie about companies because they are low class [censor] who spend thousands of dollars betting games and their greed knows no bounds so they will just keep spending and spending and when they lose they have such low character and such a lack of backbone that they cry and cry and have to find someone to blame besides the man (or sniveling degenerate SCUMBAG) in the mirror.

    Karma baby, Karma. You wish the worst? Guess you already got yours. Stop gambling loser, you have no discipline, money management and no intelligence. You can't even spell, It's Johnny with an H. You are the scammer not the service. Don't blame them because you are spineless and can't say no. Put your money in a Canadian savings account.

    It's called gambling, you win some and you lose some ...
    You guys knew better, I invested over $10K and I'm ok with that. I pulled the trigger, they didn't make me do anything. If you allow their tactics to control you, then you are the problem

    I just got a call today that if I joined up as a new client they would only charge me 20 for this weekends college and pro picks of the week. He tried to work on me saying hes from my town (pgh) and what kinds of fans we are and how i can use a few 100 in my pocket. He would not take no for an answer right away but i think he must have been new because quit the badgering after like 10minutes!! I'm glad I checked this site for the info because I was down this road a few years ago and 1000's wasted advice/promises so I have definitely learned my lesson with these type of guys! Please BEWARE!!!

    Yes, I was a victim also!!! This guy calls me in November of 2011 and says he will give me a weekend of winners for $ 39.00. ( both games lost)! Then a guy named GINO gets me and tells me how great Johnny Bono is and all of the handicapping awards he has won. He says his plays hit around 65%! Not! He says his fee is $ 895.00 for football. So I decide to give him a try. He tells me he has straight bets and his coveted silver spoon plays. The silver spoons are his top plays. He starts winning, then one week later he said to me I should be diversified. He then proceeds to sell me his basketball package.. Then 2 weeks later I should be in the " totals" club. Then 2 weeks later hockey!! All in all I have over 4k invested with GINO and have not have seen anything close to a return on my investment! Stay away gentleman, all that they want is your money, and do not give a ### if you win! A total scam. Remember the guys name was GINO!!!

    Hello,

    I found out the details about this company and I am reporting them to the San Diego FBI field office. I am contacting everyone I can online in the hopes that if the FBI receives enough complaints they will act.

    This company goes by the names CLS (Consumer Locating Services), UPS (United Processing Services), JBS Consulting and JBS Management, but their actual legal name seems to be JB Financial LLC.

    The owner is Jayd Silvia. Anthony Johnson is the manager. The address is 27450 Ynez Ste 205, Temecula, CA 92591

    Please message me if you need any additional information. They are absolutely breaking federal law and they deserve to pay the price.
