The Lionheart Group — Fraud and cheating
DECEPTIVE MARKETING at its finest. This is the brainchild of several Independent Associates who are exploiting jobseekers on the major job boards, especially Monster.
Post a resume, and you'll get a very convincing response (or several)from Nick, Jimmy or one of several other people showing interest in your resume and inviting you to fill out a qualification form and 'interview'.
STOP! THIS IS NOT A JOB OR EMPLOYMENT! It is a chance to sell you on the Pre-paid Legal business opportunity. You pay money then promote legal plans and identity theft protection as an Employee Benefit to companies.
To be honest, IMHO the Pre Paid Legal products are pretty darn good, and the opportunity is excellent, for the right person. but it's NOT a job. The Lionheart communication and website CAREFULLY skirts around this. Just look at the emails and the site and try to NOT come away with the impression that they offer high-paying jobs.
The sad thing is that these perpetrators trick many jobseekers who are simply looking for a job, not looking to pay money to be 1099 self employed. At a minimum, this wastes time, gets people's hopes up, is misleading and perpetuates the bad rep that network marketing companies like PPL are stuck with because of the marketing activities of a few tricksters. The PPL corporation should COME DOWN HARD and put a stop to these bad apples.
Interestingly, the Lionheart Group has apparently managed to entice some top PPL Associates into their web, apparently to share in the spoils of all those recruits. Their names will be on the emails you get. Shame on them all!
If Lionheart scammed you, you can post here.
