Lewis victor and mike martoe have called me a number of times to harrass me. They threated to sexually abuse me, to come to my home and other harmful things. I was also never paid for the work that i did when i worked for them. They claim i never worked there even though they sent me packages and emailed me new hire papers. I have the phone records to prove they did call. They need to be put out of business and go to jail for making threats.

Now, i can only speak for myself. I, mike martoe, did not ever have a conversation with you, unless you were hired by our firm. In which case, i would have only spoken to you briefly to confirm start dates, contact information, etc. I have never personally spoke to you in the manner you describe in your complaint. You lied. You have embarrassed me, personally, and my family that bears the same name.

I have secured legal council in both palm beach county, florida and knox county, tennessee. I have also written a letter to tennessee's attorney general & reporter, robert e. Cooper, jr. I plan to sue you, personally, for maximum punitive damages allowed by the law and defamation of character, among other lawsuits i plan to bring upon you unless you tell the truth. I plan to follow this matter through to the fullest extent of the law. I have unlimited resources to do so and will not stop until you tell the truth. You know i never spoke to you, especially in the disgusting & reprehensible manner you casually described in your complaint. Yes, i am furious. And you would be, too.

However, if you choose to amend your complaint and tell the truth, i will cease all legal proceedings towards you. Please take this matter seriously, as you have made a very serious error in judgment and that carries with it serious consequences. I will give you a short amount of time to remember your thoughts that provoked you to use my name in the above complaint and correct or delete my name from your post. Otherwise, the knox county sheriff's office will visit you and your family to serve you papers. Again, understand this: i have the law on my side and i will never ever stop until you tell the truth and eliminate my name from your complaint. I have a wife and children and what you did was wrong, unfair, unlawful and punishable by the law. I pray, for you, that you do what is right.

    Ms. Peden,

    My words are not meant to threaten or scare you in any way. Here is the lie I am referring to in your complaint:

    1.) "Mike Martoe have called me a number of times to harrass me. They threated to sexually abuse me, to come to my home and other harmful things."

    2.) "They need to be put out of business and go to jail for making threats."


    In addition, you make direct reference to my family in your rather cavalier response to my rebuttal. I ask you never ever make reference to my family in any way - EVER. I have not done so to you, nor will I.

    Have your attorneys look at what you and I have posted here. I will be happy to have my legal team speak to your people any time. I have a signed petition with almost 140 signatures on it speaking on behalf of my character and my job responsibilities here. If someone here spoke to you in the manner you claim, they deserve to be reprimanded by their superiors - not me. I am in charge of sales. I oversee the producers who are out in the field selling consistently. You were not one of them. So we never spoke. And, if we did, I am not surprised I did not remember you. You never officially 'started' with the company. You never sold any advertising. Why? That is your business. You also requested I not contact you via phone, which I will respect.

    REMEMBER, THE TRUTH IS ON MY SIDE. I, MIKE MARTOE, NEVER EVER THREATENED OR SPOKE TO YOU IN THE MANNER YOU CLAIM IN YOUR COMPLAINT. THIS WILL NEVER EVER GO AWAY UNTIL YOU TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT THAT PARTICULAR ITEM. I WILL GO TO WHATEVER LENGTHS THE LAW PROVIDES TO SEE JUSTICE IS SERVED HERE. You have slandered my family's name, committed defamation of character and are responsible to me for punitive damages allowed by the law. (by the way, an attorney is over my shoulder as I write this).

    Please tell the truth and this will all go away.

    Here is an excerpt from an email I received from Ms. Peden and I think this proves my point that she did in fact lie, meaning I never spoke to her in the manner she described in her original complaint. Since she will not take accountability for her own wrongdoing, I will accept this as an apology:

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I worked for this company only a few weeks but when they did not pay me for the work that I did I chose not to continue my employment.. At that time I was called and harassed by Victor Lewis my supervisor at the time. He asked for materials to be sent back along with the people I met. I explained to him that I had given him the list of people and I had no other materials except for the folder. At this time he proceeded to cuss me and then threatened to "stick his dick in my mouth" if I did not give him what he wanted. I asked if he was threatening to rape me at which time he replied "I will do whatever it takes to get my money's worth out of you. I know where you live and I will come to your house." I hung up on him and called 911 to report the crime here in Knoxville, TN. I also called the office and asked to speak with Victor's manager and was given Mike Martoe. He claimed he had never heard of me before...

    Apology accepted. Next time get your facts and names correct. Thank you.

    Awesome. I started a job for theese bozo's in Glens Falls, NY. I had been working and doing very well ~ about $3, 000 worth and 100% collected sales. Heres where it gets good. I contact a renewal, a Real Estate sales lady who informed me that she only paid for the Ad the previous year because she was helping her son, who was just hired as a salesman for Students of America. The Glens Falls High School NEVER received the book cover nor did they ever been in contact with this company. They knew nothing of the book covers or calendars. So, I decided to personally return each check back to all the advertisers and explain what I had learned of the jokers. I hope this thread will save you some tread. Don't give up!

    I recently started working for this company too. One of the "customers" I called on was the local sheriff's department. When I returned the next day the sheriff told my first appointment to send me to him immediately. When I got to his office he showed me the scam posting he had found on the company and informed me that if I would have taken a payment in his town he would have had to bring me in in cuffs and lock me up for scamming local businesses.
