ICL TRAVEL/PDJ GLOBALFRAUD

ICL TRAVEL AKA PDJ GLOBAL is owned by Michael S. Kersten and is registered in Atlanta, GA. Mike Kersten is also associated with IMK Holdings LLP, Juliet D. Principe is also associated with IMK holdings and she started ICL Travel January 2012.

BEWARE OF THESE PEOPLE! THEY ARE DECEPTIVE!!!

MICHAEL S. KERSTEN
JULIET D. PRINCIPE
TONYA DOYLE

Their major account was with Morgan Stanley. The Brokers of Morgan Stanley were booking their trips with ICL and for their travel icl was farming out trips to local limousine companies.

In December of 2011 PDJ Associates of Florida all of a sudden changed their name without mention of any reason of starting a new company. Then we started receiving emails from some one named Sharon from [protected]@pdjglobal.com stating PDJ closed operations effective Dec 31st 2011. She advised that she was auditing our file and will have a payment schedule to us within a week as to how the PDJ balance will be paid over the coming weeks. If we had any questions only way to get in touch was email address.

This company has deceived many local limousine companies. They owe hundreds of thousands of dollars to local limo companies and refuse to pay.

This company owes many limo companies thousands of dollars. They consistently change their company name to get out of payment.

As of August 1st ICL Travel turned off their website and phone numbers without any noticed. They may have started a new transportation company under a new name and are probably up to their regular tricks of getting hundreds of thousands of dollars of service without paying for it.

    ICL TRAVEL / SCI ROCKIES / PDJ GLOBAL has renamed again and has started as AMPM Worldwide, you can see that Michael S. Kersten (A.K.A Mike and/or Conner) changed the name and logo on his website, everything else is the same. www.ampmworldwide.com

    AMPM is a company located in Kitchener Canada, however ICL Travel's last address was in Denver, CO. The rumor is that they merged, due to an open balance for unpaid services with AMPM exceeding $185, 000.00
    The address of AMPM Limousine Inc. is;
    AMPM Limousine Inc
    266 Huck Crescent
    Kitchener, Ontario
    [protected]
    [protected]@rogers.com

    ICL Travel has used multiple email addresses, the last one we received email from was [protected]@gmail.com

    Michael Kersten's home address is: 11892 Bell Cross Circle Parker, CO 80138
    See video of his rented residence here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=aQAHcDyiykQ

    Who is interested in a class action lawsuit against current and previous companies and owners ? (Michael S. Kersten & Juliet DelPrincipe) They have left numerous providers unpaid and will continue to do so, just under a different name.

    I am one of the owners of AM PM, I will welcome all calls concerning this matter, because I am the one out $185K. We are not merging with ICL, PDJ or Mike Kersten. We are just like all of you. OUT MONEY for payroll that I have paid for, bought cars to service clients. If any of you are out this type of money, that you will know how I feel. And then to be associated as a person who does not honour his obligations.

    Feel free to call me at [protected].

    ICL defrauded our company out of $15k for Computer Equipment that is up and running at a Data Center in Colorado. So they are still in some form of business, we just can't find out the name. These people are not victims of the economy, in my opinion they are thieves.

    My name is Al Zaree and my company is Prompt Limo in Anaheim Hills. I recently fell for this scam and only found this article after waiting for almost a month for a payment from Juliet Kersten. She is Michael's wife and I even drove him personally in Orange County. The company name they gave us this time was SCI Rockies - 5041 Wilshire Blvd. Los Angeles, CA
    All cell numbers provided and business phone has been disconnected. I would very much be interested in joining any class action lawsuit. If you have any questions you can call me directly [protected]

    Pass this e-mail on to all your affiliates and collaborators whether in the Limo or Bus business.

    E-mail other providers such as Travel Agencies also.

    Times are tough for everyone. We do not need these undesirable fraud operations to feed on our Industry.

    Be very careful in dealing with these deadbeats, ICL Travel. They are a hit and run operation.

    Quartz Limousines did not receive any payments except for a NSF check.

    Help me get this operation out of our business.

    Below is some information that will help identify them. They have taken different domains to hide behind including icltravel-canada.com

    I understand that your bank or someone made a mistake with regards with the first wire for $ 172.40. So let’s get the balance of the payment done properly.

    $ 7026.54 – 172.40 = $ 6854.14 canadian funds.

    Please provide a payment for the $ 6854.14 in any form: certified check, money order, credit card, or wire by this Friday.

    You now have the proper account numbers, swift numbers as I indicated on the scanned Bank of the West document.

    We will chase the banks for the balance of $172.40 afterwards.

    Hey Joe,

    This is the exact same kind of email they sent to us and claiming that they would pay the balance by "check" - they even submitted a FEDEX tracking ID, but to this date it was never shipped.
    We're closing on them though soon and once I see the outcome of our action I will post it on here so other victims of their scam can do the following and get the money owed to them.

    Continuing the statements made above I would like to add one more individuals name, He may be conspirator, or may be innocent employee but he needs to be watched as well. Esteban Carranza. He was the Tech used here in Denver and had en email address with the Domain of ICLTravel.com.

    I'm not sure I could be of much help. I do feel very badly for what you all are going through. I was employed by Mike & Juliet (they are/were husband & wife) working with drivers before they got rid of all their cars to use and abuse yours. Any fraud that you have gone through I can assure you Mike is behind. He's a low life. Julie just does what she's told and you will never hear from Mike. He makes her do the dirty work. Reading the names of people STILL employed with them I cannot believe! The economy's not bad enough to stay working for a crook. Best wishes with trying to be reimbursed!

    Hi, I worked as a dispatcher for Pdj/Icl travel for about 6 months. Im so happy to see that they are finally getting their ### reamed! I knew they were dirty when the name changed and the internal gossip started up. Myself and another dispatcher spent many hours putting it all together and we were right. They burned me as well and I hope all of you get yours and put those ### away! Last I knew if it helps any that when they moved to CO they left open their office on lake forest drive in sandy springs ga. The spoken intent was to operate from both locations. Last I heard they were still open at that location. If I can be of any help I most certainly will and any of you can contact me at chris.[protected]@yahoo.com good luck to all of you!!

    Well, to let everyone know I was physically there and saw every single invoice that was process by PDJ ICL, I am physical proof that all of you are owed money. There is a company in Florida called Apollo Limo I believe, i saw their check cancelled. Tonya Doyle is not responsible really for anything. She has personal issues and pretty much did whatever Mike instructed. Tonya did nothing on her own or in cruel intentions and Ben did nothing at all. I was with ICL for only a couple years and was their CSR but also, they trust me to do their behind the scenes organization of their paper work which Mike monitored me to do so.
