Strategic Marketing / Fraud and scam

I contacted strategic marketing for assistance with telemarketing services for our business. I prepaid $998 for the first 30 hours of calling. After two months of receiving my payment, they still have done nothing! I can't speak to anyone on the phone, they will only correspond by email saying they will get our campaign going soon. None of the promised services in the sales process have been fulfilled. This company appears to be a scam operation. DO NOT SEND THEM MONEY!!

My sales rep was Alex Morga (480.238.1588). Alex called me right after I lost $1000 with Superior Marketing because that company went bankrupt. I now find out that these two companies are related. Strategic marketing and all involved are mere con artists. I've had email conversations with Alex Morga, Darren Paulson, Meredith Leihb. They won't take telephone calls or return messages after they get your prepaid check. I fully intend to contact authorities and seek every remedy possible.

    Strategicmarketingus.com in Scottsdale ripped our company off too. We also sent Darren Paulson $1000.00 and never heard from him again. Sorry to hear that you got burnt too.

    After we got burnt by Darren Paulson and his company Strategicmarketingus.com in Scottsdale we have noticed alot of people they have burned. We never talked to any one named Alex just Darren.

    Strategic Marketing in Scottsdale, Arizona continues to rip people off. They must be desparate to steal from unsuspecting businesses.

    I agree with the other poster DO NOT SEND Darren Paulson at Strategicmarketingus.com a DIME. You are better off buying lottery tickets with th money or donating to a charity.

    If you send any money to Darren Paulson at strategicmaketingus.com you better just kiss it goodbye. He and is company are some kind of Con Artists!

    Just google his name. Darren Paulson in scottsdale is all over the internet with different companies ripping people off with the same scam for the same amount of money!

    Darren Paulsen also ripped us off. Also submit your compaint to the better business bureau of Scottsdale. I am not sure he is even located there. People can put anthing they want on the internet. We should know, we build websites.

    Post your complaints everywhere you can. Find all the business directories and right your complaint review. we might stop him yet.

    FYI
    Darren Paulson and his company people are cokeheads. They probably spent all your money on drugs. I've seen him around the scottsdale circuit. doing just that.
    People like that can't be trusted AT ALL. Their business relationship and personal relationships are all like that fraudulent and corrupt.
    Stay far away from Darren Paulson and anything he's related too

    Hi, We used a company in Australia called Strategic Telemarketing and they took almost $2000 and now they wont answer calls, return emails and when you call through the "mobile" receptionist wont give out Chris Gere or Joe Wrights details - apparently they also operate in the UK - we have raised several complaints with ACCC and Dept. of Fair Trading - what else is someone to do that is civil - do we need to get agressive?

    This is Alex, this was an A rated company. Turns out the owners were cashing the checks as I brought in the business and nothing more. This business was doing well, then just went down. Police shut them down and I had nothing happen to me because I was not involved in operations or the cashing of the checks. As soon as I found out what was going on I got out and was helping detectives as much as I could. Sorry anyone was defrauded and please do not associate me with any Illegitimate business practices.
