If not for your safety, then for wallet...It's all true and it's not about hating.
The guy at my door, CHESTER, actually told his sad and woeful tale about the inner city and drugs and how he was doing this for his daughter (who was abandoned by his drug addict wife who is still in jail and can't break free of her addiction to crack) and about his church leadership role and how one day he wants to open his BBQ place called 'Chester's Q'. Hmm...
I order 3 subscriptions knowing I was paying way over retail (meaning that I knew a yearly subscription costs about $50 - but paid $108 for each subscription in hopes of giving someone a new chance at redemption).
However, after receiving nothing for the money I gave was like being anally raped (that's how violated I felt), and I can't help but hope that someday each and every person involved in this particular scam ends up being raped in the exact same manner.
I trusted and tried to help in an attempt to let a reformed felon know there are good people willing to support that 'initiative' they took, but at the end of the day I WAS SCAMMED...unfortunately, now when someone REALLY needs help I won't blink an eye before I tell them to get lost.
Yes, power to them for taking the initiative to be on the right track, but are they so entangled on the wrong track that they don't realize how far they have to travel before they get to the right track? If I were a part of this company I would smell scam immediately and decline the job or quit asap.
If I were their future employer, I would never hire someone who was involvement with such a company. Not because I don't believe they can't change, but if you lack the intelligence to know what you are doing is wrong then, well...chances are you STILL lack that intelligence.
Be smart watch out not just for Paragon, but for the following related companies:
Paragon Sales, Paragon Dynasty, Paragon Express, Second To None, DP Sales, Banks Management, Midwest Clearing LLC, and Young Professionals LLC.
THEY HAVE ALL BEEN DISCREDITED BY THE BBB and have disconnected their phone lines.
Also watch out for the name Andre Walker, Dave Percudani (Andre's puppet), and investigate other names related with the above mentioned companies.
1. Order magazines directly from the publisher (You'll get what you've pay for PLUS it's much cheaper).
2. If you want to help those in need refer them to organizations you are familiar with.
3. Donate the extra cash you have to an organization that will put it to good use.
4. If you still want to help:
LOCK the door and check out the company he works for on the internet.
Hopefully they'll be gone by the time you get back, but if they're still there tell them yes the company
checked out or no the company is in poor standing.
