Total money lost $300
Type of a scam Employment
Mr. Winston Guy who is owner of Jamerica Consultants, Limited Company talked me into taking the Professional Immigration Assistance Training after I found the ad on Craigslist. I asked him if it would be worth my time and money. He said yes and stated after taking the course, there was an option to start your own business or join his firm as an independent contractor assisting with completing immigration petitions. The independent contractor option appealed to me because I could make my own hours and according to him there was no additional expense outside of the training fee of $300 and I would get a percentage of the fee that was paid to the firm.
Shortly after I successfully completed the four week training, he sent me an email offering me an independent contractor position in which he stated that after I accepted, he would proceed to send a contract agreement within a month. Mr. Guy also gave me an estimated start date which was within a couple of weeks as well. Needless to say, a month came and went and I never heard from him so I sent him an email asking about the status. He had blocked me from communicating with him.
I have been professional in all my dealings with him and it is a shame that he has not returned the favor. He coaxed me into taking the course (and paying $300) and dangled the independent contractor opportunity in front of me. He offered it to me but never followed up and did not keep his word.
Mr. Winston Guy scammed me into taking the course and paying the money knowing that he had no intentions on hiring me as an agent. He and his firm (Jamerica Consultants, Limited Company) lack integrity and professionalism and are solely out to take individual’s money. That is no way to run a business.
