Scammed by MySearchSEO, Irvine, CA May 1, 2010, 51 loyal employees were scammed out of two weeks pay today. We never saw it coming.

Nick KohlSchreiber, owner and AnDREW Lambert, Sales Mgr. STOLE ALL the property from the Suite 195 at 2082 Business Center Drive, Irvine, CA, changed the locks and CANCELLED their Phone services

AFTER texting an employee at 5:30 am that MySearchSEO has "folded and is not longer in business"

Unable to be reached, Ed KohlSchreiber, Nick's Dad, the Ponzi scheme Master Mind does not answer his phone.

51 employees are without Rent money and devasted by the actions of these 3 SCAM ARTISTS!!

Cancel your credit cards if you gave your info to MySearchSEO, Huntington Beach, and Irvine, CA Total Scammers at TWO locations.

I worked in Customer Service and know that MySearchSEO has COLLECTED Credit Card Information on approximately 300 customers "believing they are buying advertising on the front page of Google" from approximately 300 innocent business owners. THIS IS FRAUD and Criminal activity.

A Class Action lawsuit by employees is underway now. The Police in Irvine, CA and the IRS Tax Evasion should pursue this case expeditiously for Criminal and Fraud operation.

BEWARE: they are planning to start another SEP Search Engine Placement company in Los Angeles immediately! They are running ads on craigslist.org for sales personnel now.

Nick Kohlschreiber, 25 was involved in an extramarital affair with an office assistant while posing as a "SINGLE" man in a Double Life. Several lawsuits are pending for sexual harassment in the workplace.

I only worked there for 2 weeks, but never saw it coming. This is the 2nd seo company I have seen do this. Stay away from any SEO company unless it's network solutions or another major company that has been around more than a couple years! They didn't owe me much money luckily but I feel bad for those they did!

The owners have been in contact, They state that they are going to try and pay out what was owed after a thorough accounting process is done.We will see...
The second complaint regaurding a extramarital affair cannot be substantiated, This would be concidered filling in the blanks on behalf of disgruntled employees. I have worked with mysearch seo since the begining, Ed, Nick, have been on he level with every one since that dreadfull day. However, The way they went about this was very wrong, and appeared to be like they were taking the money and running. There was renewals, and two weeks of sales, Since calling almost every one up, and continue to call with progress on the accounting.I hope they do the right thing.I hope they pay heier employees.

The stupid ### comment from director of sales more like director of scams or aka cop caller Andrew Lambert is right about one statemnt in his comment and that is he has been involved in this scam with Ed and Nick from day one like the 3 stoodges. He can say all the lies he wants to about Ed and Nick being in contact with us about the progress. That is untrue. They are buying time to think they wont get their ### kicked but time will not stop that. They have affected and destroyed many lives of their employees and will learn very soon that you cannot do this to people and get away with it..

Beware of the scam from Mysearch call your bank report fraud against their company for stealing your money IMMEDIATELY and if you want to call the idiots that stole your money their cell phone numbers are

I work for this company and I would like to update the report on this. First of all, there were 3 sales reps that were released for misrepresenting and lying on the phone to customers. I know that there managers had told them all on 2 occasions that they must stop over promising because its causing the client to be confused when we as a company call to verify that all the information is correct. Because of this, it was then reported to the owners and they had no choice but to release these individuals. These 3 individuals started to write bad press which anyone can do now a days on the company. For example: Personal information about the owners, which the owners never communicate with the sales floor, no exceptions. How 51 employees got scammed with no pay. There are only 15 employees within the company. How clients must cancel there credit cards. If you check the internet, there is not one customer complaint unlike every other SEO company. Example: Reliable Listing, Local Splash, Relavant Ads, Your Local Merchant. Unfortunately when you are in a marketing business with an outbound division. You come across individuals that will try and say anything over the phone to get buck. Fortunately MySearch did not tolerate that and gave these 3 individuals more than enough warning but they chose not to listen and payed the consequences of losing a profitable position with a company that provides a great service to there clients and employees. Anyone who has common sense and reads the press of these individuals that were released can clearly see that its overkill and made up attacks. I am still employed here til this day and have never missed a paycheck. As a matter of fact if I happen to have a bad week which I have in the past, the company has advanced me money with no hesitation.

I have worked for this company and know that they will not stand for any misreps from their sales staff. One time and you are let go with your pay held. This is because the business you sold is going to be contacted for quality control. And this is why they have no complaints. Its to bad a few people who caused their own problems will not take responsibility.

I can tell you right now that this company IS a fraud!!! They took my money and never produced any product!!!
What they did to their employees is just topping on the corruption cake. Something needs to be done and right away before they disappear or scam other people. The economy is bad enough and everybody is scraping to get by. For someone to take what little is left for people is dispicable!

There is a new company at this address, as of 5/2011, I replied to a ad on craigslist for a admin position. I spoke with a women (Anita Orozco) that was intrested in interviewing with me stateing the name of the company is Legal Marketing group, then later she called back and said the name of the company is Legal Management she seemed frazzeled when I questioned her about the company name (why it changed from a day ago), or more info on the company or website so that I may look up information on the company before I came in for a interview. She then stated they filled the position after I inquired about the company and the interview she wanted to set up. RED FLAG! Has anyone else had a experience like this with this new company at this same address? Im wondering if its another craigslist scam. You can never be to careful. Glad I asked questions and inquired about the company before showing up for the interview.

I worked for this company and was a victim of being lied to and unpaid. I am still owed $1, 000. Every one of these positive comments regarding this business or business address is falsified information. Do not do business or work for any one of these three people. Nick and Ed Kohlschreiber (father/son) and Andrew Lambert. I also know for a fact nick was married and having an inappropriate relationship with the manager who was unaware of his marriage. They told employees on pay day that they "ran out of checks" and asked for all of us to pick them up next day (Saturday). When we arrived the locks were changed and they removed everything in the office except the desks. No one has ever received payment. These three continue to do business by changing their names all the time. DONT TRUST THEM.
