PMD Furniture Direct / Liars, Cheaters, and Stealers, Oh My!

1 MO, United States Review updated:

This company is the biggest scam in the industry. You are required to purchase a "franchise" at a ridiculous up front cost between $15, 000 - $30, 000, then required to purchase all merchandise through them at a 30-50% mark up fropm what they buy it for. When your furniture is delivered the price lists have to be blacked out because they are raping their own dealers so hard that if they saw the prices they would feel scammed. I saw those prices. What I was being charged $957 for was costing my company, the company I entrusted my livelihood and family with, less than $600. They teach you their formula for calculating and quoting retail costs to your customers, which is your cost x 5. You then tell your customers that the clearance price is cost x2.5, "but if you get it today I might can do a little better than that".

The founder of the company is a bulldog crook who stole all the ideas for his company and called them his own, and one that will undoubtedly be penniless and friendless in the not too distant future. His right hand man is a failed Wall Street greaseball that is the in person definition of Human Slime. These people steal, lie, and distort the reality of your business, and set you up to fail from the minute you buy in. You are encouraged to but into every product line they offer, all purchased on your dime, with no discounts provided even for your samples, and they rob all of your assets by doing so. It doesn't matter to them, as they would just as soon see you fail, have you go out of business with a warehouse full of furniture you purchased from them essentially at retail prices, and get you out of the way to recruit and place another sucker in your spot in your city. If you do exactly what I just said, you will have donated $25, 000 to start your business, then will purchase about $100, 000 worth of goods from them, and will go extinct in business because you can't move any of their crap. That same furniture set I used as an example in paragraph one would sell at BIG LOTS for $995, $38 more than what I purchased it for through my parent company.

All in all, they have successfully lured a lot of talented and good hearted people to work for them, from the front office to the dealer base. The front office people just have jobs, and they have to look past what is being done to the dealers. The dealers are the ones who are ultimately suckered and stolen from. They are treated with little to no regard once they have ponied up their entry fee, and like I said, they would just as soon see you go down and bankrupt than to succeed, because then they can begin the scam again in that territory with a new gullible person who is looking for an honest way to support their families. Any dealer that comes on here and objects to this statement only does so because they are so deep into the company by this time that they feel they have to defend it, if for nothing more than to make themselves feel better about the poor vocational error they have made. I sympathize with you and liked almost all of you that I worked with, with the exception of that horrific yak from Baton Rouge. I made the same mistake, and got out in time to salvage some of my losses. Some is the key word in that last sentence. I lost my ###, just like almost everyone that has ever attempted to make this crooked business model fly.

The owner of the company is a villainous slug who cares about no one but himself. This includes the greaseball front man failed Wall Street pinhead, and all the snowed over managers that go out and perpetuate his lies and trickery. He would throw any of them into the fire to save himself, or even his ugly dog, who probably doesn't even care for him, either.

### OF THE EARTH LYING CHEATING SWINDLING DECEPTIVE CON MEN OUT TO ROB EVERYONE THEY ENCOUNTER IN THE NAME OF COMMERCE AND GOOD BUSINESS. MAY YOU ALL SUFFER IMMEASURABLE FINANCIAL RUIN IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

    I AGREE WHOLE HEARTILY. THIS THING SEEMS LIKE A SCAM, NO DIFFERENT THAN THE PHONY GOING
    OUT OF BUSINESS FURNITURE LIQUIDATIONS.
