Prime United Marketing / Lack of honesty Jay Dunn Patrick Siado Dave Garcia Carl Blust

1 Orlando, FL, United States Review updated:

Looking at the Internet today
And i was GREATLY APPALLED by what was said about the company that i work for. BUT i am definitely not surprised one bit. Prime United is full of empty promises and ###s. Asked for the owners number and they never gave it to me. I was told that i had to be in meetings or i was fired. Last time i checked as an independent contractor it is illegal to hold job security over any contractors head. ILLEGAL. Furthermore Prime United Marketing is a pyramid scheme. I was promised the world and was given...###. I am now being told that my job is on the line. Prime United Marketing = ###...If You see this company name or anyone listed above in the Subject form above steer clear or you will fall in there scheme

    Jay Dunn and his company Prime United Marketing (aka Spark Energy) just moved into a quiet artist loft/office building in Hartford, CT and they are the rudest, jerks on the planet. I literally told Jay Dunn that I hated him. He's a patronizing, condescending sleaze bag. The receptionist, Shaina (I think that is her name) is rude and spiteful. I'm having to move out of the building because I am losing my mind. They are constantly shouting and ra ra'ing so they can get the team pumped up to go rip off the poor people of Hartford.

    Here is their ad on Craigslist Hartford

    It appears that all 3 of you have some very serious concerns and I would like to grant you the opportunity to have them resolved. I would like to address all 3 of your issues cordially. We at Prime take our business very seriously and are constantly looking for ways to service our customers and contractors better. I am not sure what you are refering to with the "Lack of honesty" on my part because I am very honest, straight forward and direct with all people I do business with. I would appreciate if you could contact me directly and inform me as to how i may have mislead you so i can make ammends. If I personally did something to mislead you I apologize. I also want to apologize on behalf of Mr. Carl Blust. He his a hard nosed no non-sense type of sales manager that tends to rub some people the wrong way. He can come off as over-bearing but it's only because he is very passionate about this business.

    In regards to the young lady claiming to be a previous admin I am not quite sure what your talking about. Those are some pretty serious accusations and again I apologize to you if it any time you did indeed work with us and feel mistreated. You as well can feel free to contact me with any concerns you may have. My number will be listed below.

    Last but not least our old neighbor in Hartford. It appears we got off on the wrong foot. I never had a chance to actually meet you face to face due to the fact that you moved in after we did and typically did'nt leave your office suite. Had I had known you were there before it was too late I would have introduced myself and apologised in advance for the loud noise beforehand like I did our other neighbors. At the time you were leasing the office next door to us we were un aware that you were actually living in the office suite and were there 24/7. I hope you can understand that our business requires us to run loud hoo-rah's for at least 1-2 hours every morning. When we initialy signed our lease we informed the building manager that was going to be the case and he never said anything to us about it. I think it was just unfortunate you decided to use the office suite directly next to us as a apartment. I am truly sorry we mad you as upset as we made you. You didnt deserve that and a I wish we could of came to a resolution sooner.

    In regards to your comment "...So they can go rip-off poor people" the reality is this; We represent Spark energy in CT and Spark is an alternative energy supplier for CL&P customers. The rate Spark offers is indeed cheaper then the current CL&P rate. Anyone reading this can verify this by going to Sparks website and comparing it to the rate on their bill. The savings are substantial. In the future I would suggest doing the due dilligance beforehand. Again I want to apologize to all of you for your bad experiences and I would love to make things right again and I can only hope you give me that opportunity.

    thanks

    Wow!! That guy Jay is sure full of himself! You can almost hear how smug he comes off as you read his reply. The fact is that his company is legit and legal. That's not to say that they operate with a shred of integrity or business ethics. It's a basic multi-level marketing scam. they are taking advantage of both their employees and the people they offer their "services" to. While some employee will excel most will not and that accounts for a very high turn over. The only way to keep overhead down is to hire 1099's and promise high commissions which might be reached by a very small number, but most will not. Either way they get lots of hour of work out of the employee and the employee makes no money or the employee is part of a small percentage that can actually generate enough commission to make a decent salary. Either way the company gets the better of the deal. Since they most likely have new employees coming it at a high turnover rate they never have to worry about being understaffed and the ones that do well at selling make the company big profits! The trick is to attach yourself to a well known brand or company. In Orlando they are doing it with AT&T u-verse this leads the employee and customer to believe they are involved with a reliable brand. Finally the "poor customers" well I'm of the belief that if your foolish enough to get scammed well then "shame on you". It just comes down to common sense and the ability to question people's motivation. Always ask yourself why are they doing this for me? What's in it for them. There is always a reason why a business call to give you a "special offer" and it's simply to increase their revenue goals nothing more. At the end of the day it is a business and must turn a profit and no business can profit from saving people money. It always comes down to upgrading or new services or something that in the end is supposed to save you money. Well use your brain and remember if it sounds to good to be true...IT IS!!!

    First of all, I wish to state that the only way that I know Jay is through business dealings with him. I've never met him in person; however, we have talked at length on the phone and some through email. I have to say that the Jay Dunn portrayed above is not the Jay Dunn that I have done business with. Jay has always been very professional and taken care of business in his dealings with me. The problem with these types of boards is that anyone can say anything without proof. I'll continue dealing with Jay and, if I have any more comments to make (pro or con), I'll be back.

    I'm appalled that this guy has the audacity to come on here and try to put other people in their place. Excuse me but google your company and you will see that most of it comes up under Rip Off and SCAMS! It's none of your business what the person was QUIETLY doing in the studio next to you. I know for a fact that they were only crashing there for a couple weeks while they looked for a new apartment. They weren't bothering anyone. YOU WERE!!! Complaints were coming from tenants all the way down the hall! In fact, one of your employees threatened a tenant down the hall.

    I honestly don't know who you think you are Jay Dunn, but as far as I can see you are a major creep and have nothing to contribute to the human race.

    Look, it's door to door sales, I've seen their employees make tons of cash. I have also seen wanna be sales men walk away broke and mad... All 3 of these guys started knocking doors 7 or 8 years ago and now their giving jobs to anybody that thinks they have what it takes. Arrogant a-holes yes they can be. Self made men??? Yes they are. Scamers?? NO ... No false promises if you can deliver you win if you can't go flip burgers.

    I had an experience with a Mr. Patrick Siado today!! And might I say he WAS VERY RUDE!! Doing research afterwards I found A LOT of stuff out. Mr, Siado and Mr. JAY DUNN seem to really be good buddies, even wearing a FREE PATRICK (Siado) t-shirt, supporting his friend that was arrested 10-14-12... Just a few days ago. He (Patrick) called me today to renew a subscription to TV Guide which we have renewed to 2014 already. I told him money is tight.. due to my step father passing away. Bills are CRAZY! I said we aren't exactly happy with how TV Guide had changed anyway and search most shows we want to watch on the Internet. He then said well then we will just cancel the subscription and she won't receive any more. I said well we would like to finish out the 2 years left on the prescription ( And then corrected myself saying SUBSCRIPTION) . He THEN proceeded to say "well maybe that's the problem PRESCRIPTIONS, cant afford SUBSCRIPTIONS." It appalled me!!! I went off on him, I tend to that when mad. I am currently in the process of getting in touch with SOMEONE to help. Seeing that Mr. Dunn and Mr. Siado are good friends I feel like I can't contact him, so I'm in search of someone higher up. Seeing as Jay Dunn is CEO I might not be able to do anything but BELIEVE me I will get my message out there about him, his company, employees we've dealt with, past criminal records made public and etc. Very unprofessional people. After reading all the complaints I can't believe how sneaky, manipulative some people can be. F.C.C and B.B.B. here we come...

    You say that because you KNOW THEM. Be on the other end of the situation and see what you think. Since you know them do PERSONALLY it seems like you would know how to spell their names. Yeah keep up the "good" work and FCC will finally shut you DOWN! Rude people... With no morals who want to take advantage of widowed senior citizens. Just because they need bail/court money!! Yeah they sound like WINNERS!!

    People, if you don't like a company, get over it, move on. You all seem like you have nothing better to do than ### about a company. BOO WOO you had a ### experience with them, well that's your problem. Prime United Marketing isn't all about Door To Door sales either. You are all just Pathetic, and you all need to get a life. If you want something to complain about, complain about politics, or the economy. At least Prime United Marketing will ALWAYS be hiring in a ### economy and a great one, and people will ALWAYS be getting paid. Not everyone is made out to be a door to door sales man. Door To Door Sales is for people who actually want to SHOW a company what THEY are WORTH, not just have a company say you are worth 8 dollars an hour.

    So get over it people.

    And for the lady that says Dave Garcia cheats on his wife. I laugh in your dumb face.
    I know Dave Garcia and his wife, Dave would NEVER cheat on her. Maybe if you got out of your stupid teenage stage, and grew up, you would realize that.

    So Courtneyy22 seems like you might be friends (or more..hummmm maybe with Dave) with these losers! Your rant sucks and so do u if believe they treat people the way they should. As if u didn't already know, but look them up for yoursel[censored] Bunch of pansy ### losers, dope heads, pill poppers who like to try to scheme from senior citizens. I will stand by what I say and will continue to put the word out about this company! Maybe thats why they can't get a real JOB, because they can't pass a drug test. So how many more times has PATRICK been in jail in the last month?! Haha he deserves a few years there. Maybe if he keeps up the "good" work he'll be where he belongs FOR GOOD!!!

    Jodi I really feel sorry for you, from your rants you appear to be a very troubled soul. Take a step back and see how much a sales man has disrupted your life that you would get in online arguements like a high school girl. If you had any worthy intellect you would be moving on with your life. On your comments regarding drug use and getting a "real job", from the sound of it that's exactly the life your stuck in. Partick, David, and Jay all do VERY well for them selves and they have helped many people achieve six figure incomes through business practices of honesty and integrity. You should really reconsider your public hate post because defamation of character and libel are taken serious by our wonderful court systems and continuing to post unbacked accusations leaves you open to a civil law suite with the proof posted all over this site. With your references toward courtneyy22, that's my wife. Now I understand in your life infidelity might be a regular occurrence, that is if some one would be low enough to share/waste their lives with the likes of you. My best recommendation for you is to simply move on with your life, or don't really it doesn't matter to or affect the lives of people like us. Simply put its hard to hear you from the top. Now kindly move forward with the sad situation you call daily life.

    Best regards,

    The guy who loves haters ;)

    Just did more research and found so many more complaints about this company! It's a shame the way they treat people. The only people that have anything good to say are the people who work for the company and that's a whole handful of around 5 People! There are even a few that worked for them that lets us in on how bad they really are. I'm thankful for sites like this that allow you SHARE YOUR OPINION. Also love public records where you can view criminals and their convictions.

    I had the pleasure working with this company a few years ago, in 2010, in Houston, Tx. I think the owners did their best at keeping the company going and worked really hard at accommodating everyone's schedule. I may not have been the best admin they had, but I do know that the previous admin's comment is very inconsiderate. I mean, seriously, the part about the three owners... if you had that big of an issue, you should have just left and/or talked with them. How would you know if Jay had girls texting him all day? Why would you even care?
