If you have found yourself reading this document then your intuition (or first-hand experience) is correct and you should run as far away as humanly possible from this company. This article is to help get the word out that this 'company' needs to be exposed and shutdown immediately. The Ohio Events Group located at 733 Lakeview Plaza Blvd, Ste H Columbus, OH 43085, [protected], is a sickening con of deceptive swindlers and professional manipulators. This business has recently been featured on Channel Six ABC news in Columbus as a featured Scam Alert and this "business' needs to be shutdown immediately. They run an operation second only to sweatshops. They make you work ten hour days in any weather imaginable selling rip-off coupon packages to unsuspecting people. I know this, because I worked there. I saw the program and I saw the operation. I witnessed the deceit and gruesome lies young adults were fed just so Lonnie Kohlhorst and his cronies could pad their wallets. The entire operation was a scam front to back. The minute you sit down in the front office with the loud "current' music stereo and pretty receptionist all the way to the slick talk of Lonnie himself and the back warehouse room with stacks of coupons and the strange, cult-like behavior of team leaders or people who had bought the scheme - you will find and see the deception that many others have found before. They will manipulate you into believing their con anyway they can; they will peer pressure you, they will befriend you and they will straight up lie about everything and anything. These are desperate people and just the thought of their faces make me sick. I worked for three days - 30 hours - and received $75. I was told I would be making over $400 a week since I had to work Saturday's in which they conveniently forgot to tell me before I was hired, so how those three days of pay works out is beyond me. I met overenthusiastic young adults who constantly watched my every move. I was profusely told to be more animated and excited. I had to literally harass every person that walked by our craptastic card table of overpriced coupons to places nowhere in the vicinity. And what is worse, is that it was in the name of charity - Breast Cancer no less! These people I went out with were called "Leaders' and it was their job to manipulate me per the orders of Lonnie Kohlhorst. There were probably 8 to 10 in the company that I met and they all came from Wisconsin and they all lived together. Lonnie Kohlhorst had a brand new yellow Dodge Charger with Illinois license plates and he had brought them down here to set up shop. On every level, each one is scamming the other. They call it a team but everyone is out for themselves and they will use you like they tried to use me to get what they think is coming to them. It is a cult. It is a scam. It is a crime. And they should be dismantled and publicly humiliated. It takes the voice of the people to make the change and we need to do this now! The rabbit hole runs deep and places like this exist all across the country. They go by many names but the method stays the same. You can search DS-Max, Cydcor, Granton and many more and you will find the same sad story after story. These people have ruined many people's lives, where young, ambitious and honest kids who needed experience found a dark chapter they want to leave behind. I was lucky but many were not. I hope you have found this document helpful.
