I have read over all the posts regarding Southern Circulation and I think it is time that someone stood up and set the record straight. First I want to state that I was both and employee for Southern Circulation and the company that it became Veritas Communications. I chose to remain anonymous because the owner of Veritas Communications (Dave Fussell) is a violent person. He is one of the most disreputable people in the magazine business. He has a long history of abuse in the magazine business. In my last weeks there he was offering to buy magazine orders to female agents in exchange for sexual favors. Every ex-employee including office managers, general managers and agents will swear to the validity of what I am telling you.
Anyway, this is what happened. Southern Circulation was started by both Howard Brock and Dave Fussell. Dave left the company near the first of the year because he and his wife (Tracy Fussell) were having problems. Dave signed over his half of the company to Howard and Howard signed over half of the company to Tracy they partners until March of 2008.
Tracy then stole Howard’s half of the company completely shortly thereafter leaving Howard with nothing. Dave and Tracy had reconciled by that time and I believe it was a plan by both of them to seize the company for themselves. They took possession of all the orders, money, vans, and company records. They led us to believe a bunch of lies that since that time I found out were totally untrue. Southern Circulation continued to operate for quite a while after they took over the company. We worked in Nebraska, Iowa, Tennessee, Indiana, and Georgia. Finally they changed the company over and it became Veritas Communications with all of Southern Circulation’s employees. Tracy later sold out her part to Dave and he now makes payments to her which makes the company entirely his.
All the while they have made up a smoke screen blaming Howard for all Southern Circulation’s problems. They assured us they were clearing all the orders that we were writing but I know for a fact that our orders are not being processed. I wrote down some of my personal customer’s phone numbers from months ago. They still have not received their magazines.
For all of you who wondering where your orders are they are in box at Dave and Tracy’s (the owners of Veritas Communications and Southern Circulation) house. I doubt that you will ever receive them. In my opinion Dave Fussell is the true scammer here and he is the one you guys should be going after, he and Tracy both. Oh yeah sometimes she likes to be called Tracy Turner.
