Hi,

I did not know about this communication and Trey Woods is not my employee, but he is your partner/affiliate. AND I am of course not his Mom.

This is not my words or communication between you and your partner, Trey Woods.

Trey Woods is an affiliate of 123employee.com. I purchased your service through his affiliate link.

In accordance with the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), you are responsible for what your affiliate, Trey Woods says and does here.

I want a full refund at this point.

123employee.com violated my trust and I intend to pursue this to the fullest extent until I get a refund.

Please reply with how you will send me a refund at least the fee of $997.00. I have not gone to the FTC yet, but I presume I will.

Please just refund the money to my credit card.

Sincerely!

Original review posted by user Jun 30, 2013

I paid for the service at 123employee.com of a virtual assistant (VA) for $997.00/per. I gave the VA and the organization was given access to my personal information, accounts, and passwords.

During the first official month of service 123employee.com chose to fire my VA because she accessed my personal information and attempted to contact me outside of the organization for employment. The VA attempted to contact me multiple times and requested that I pay her directly. This violated my agreement with 123employee and I felt my personal information was in Jeopardy.

I asked for a refund from 123employee.com because my time was wasted from having to train and employee that they had left me in a very short time. 123employee refused to give me a refund and decided to not communicate with me regarding giving me a refund.

I have canceled my service with 123employee.com.

Monetary Loss: $997.

Lol. 123Employee is merely a scam. As far as the what I have know their CEO Daven Michaels tells lie to all the clients and for the upcoming clients. Daven Michaels never owns a company nor the 123Employee agents in the Philippines. He is just a marketer, he markets the 123Employee all over the globe as if it is owned by him.

here’s what the real situation of a client when they will subscribed to 123Employee.

Clients are classified into categories. These are the normal clients who paid the normal packages, Affiliated clients which are from the affiliates of 123 such as the jack bosch, Anthony morrison (fast cash commission), The Lyttle sisters and many more from their referrals partners, The VIP clients which are some clients from Daven Michaels’s personal coaching, The old and loyal clients and the big named companies. So when a client orders a package they will set an appointment then tackles about what are the clients concerns and wants for a VA to handle a specific tasks. Automatically the HR of 123Employee sited a project manager who can deal with it. (A project manager of 123employee are the senior employees who knows more than enough compare to an ordinary agent). So what the HR would tell to a client is :”The project manager is good and can deal to whatever the clients needs” afterwards the HR will pass the phone or set another appointment for the client to talk to the Project Manager. As if it is now set the client and the Project manager will now tackle what are the client’s need to be worked for. afterwards the Project manager will get an agent/VA to handle the client’s tasks. Then the tasks are now performed daily until the client surrenders in the services.

This is now the worst thing that happens in 123Employee. The Clients never know the real backgrounds of the VA’s because it is fake. The Information given are fake. example: The VA is in 3 years or more that has been working in the company, some educational backgrounds are not real, SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE are all lies. Infact 123Employee never had a special training on their VA/AGENTS. 80% of their agents are new. Agents can handle clients even their status are just trainees with a daily compensation of 100PHP or $2 per day. All answer and suggestions will depend on their senior agent or PM’s which has more experience than the new Agents. Somehow their End Day Report are fake and edited.

Their pricing is to high but they can’t give enough compensation to their Employees who worked for them.

Salary calculation:

normal agents:

$7 dollars per 8 hours shift – can be deducted if have some lates.

10 percent night difference since the employees are working 12midnight till 9Am Philippine time.

additional $25 if complete attendance without 3 lates for the whole month cycle.

SO approximately $200 per month salary if you get the $25 incentives. However their are some deductions made such as some insurance. then the payout time is divided every 2weeks so a normal will only get less than $100 every 15 days. How cruel it is.

Those are just SOME of the info’s I have from them.

So all I can say to them is THEY ARE DISGUSTING.

I have been using virtual assistance since 2007 and am VERY HAPPY with my experiences with 123employee.com. I trust 123 and their team. I trust the VA that I interviewed and hired.

I have had full time assistance for years who have helped me in many ways. I have more time and can delegate the repetitive tasks that take up much of my day.

The assistant that I have right now has been with me since 2010. Today he arrived 20 minutes early and greeted me through Google Hangouts (chat). I was overloaded with tasks today, so he delightfully extended his work day with me for one additional hour.

Every few months I express my gratitude and send a small bonus $20 (a US $20 bonus is HUGE once it is exchanged into PH currency) or so which means allot to the VA. 123employee gives 100% of bonus money directly to my VA.

123 provides my VA with a computer, high speed Internet, his IT support, a phone, cubicle etc.. I had my VA print out maps of the areas I work and put them in his cubicle so that he is familiar with the California cities that we are dealing with.

Here are some tasks that I trust my VA to do:

-billing.. he takes my notes in Evernote and copies them into a Quickbooks invoice. He tallies the billable hours (perfectly) and selects the proper customer and appropriate trip charges. If the customer has a payment on file with us, he processes the payment and applies it to the invoice.

-paperwork such as filling out forms such as rebates, tax forms, applications. He prints them to my printer once I approve them.

-make phone calls.. call vendors, competitors for market research, tech support, phone companies, follow ups on everything.

-do research via Internet.. for example, call 4 vendors and check stock and price

-pay bills such as credit cards, phone bills, vendor bills, etc.

-RMA (return merchandise).. check with Dell and get credit for a part that we don’t need. Print a UPS label to my printer so that I can affix to the box and drop off.

-make purchases after researching.. for example Toner, headsets

I could go and on. If you are new to VA’s, it is important to make a list first of the tasks you wish to turn over and when they setup a few interviews, see which candidate an fill all of your needs.

I just wanted to put in my feedback. I hope that this helps.

-VERY HAPPY, LONG TERM CLIENT!

Lets set the record straight here. This comment was posted by Rosetta Wood. Our client was Trey Wood. Mom paid the bill

We take stealing clients and employees very seriously at 123Employe. 123 has spent millions of dollars on infrastructure to build our company and we take very serious measures when it comes to protecting our business.

In the early days when we opened there was not broadband internet in homes in the Philippines. Now that there is internet in homes it has created an adversarial relationship between our employees and our clients. Obviously there is an incentive for our clients to run away with our employees. Our clients can save a little money and the employee gets lured away with the enticement of possibly making more money. We rarely have this issue as most of our clients and prospects are honest, but a few are not.

When Trey signed up for our serivces he received this disclaimer:

Terms and Conditions :

Internet security laws are very strict in the Philippines to protect the interests of clients like you and companies like 123Employee that invest millions of dollars in facilities and training.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE: if a VA attempts steal you OR if YOU try and lure / steal one of your employee away from 123Employee your agent is liable for prosecution and imprisonment. Per Philippines law, it is considered THEFT and taken extremely seriously.

Reminder: As part of our service agreement you have agreed NOT to attempt to steal the client away from 123Employee. Any attempt to do so can result in legal action and a penalty of $12,000 equivalent to 12 months of full time service.

In addition, all our employees sign before doing our clients tasks. All virtual assistants sign company documents that state we will take legal action for:

* Leaking confidential data

* Client data theft

* Client theft (if a Virtual Assistant attempts / or steals a client from 123Employee)

* Misuse and sharing of client data

Clients can request that their Virtual Assistant can sign NDA's with if required.

This is a chat transcript obtained by the NBI the Philipines equivelant of the FBI, between you and our former agent:

[6/4/2013 10:25:39 AM] Trey Woods | App Marketer: Can you just do 123 employee just 3 more months? and that will give me time to send you a computer and set you with an internet connection where you live.

[6/4/2013 10:27:12 AM] Trey Woods | App Marketer: I can instead send you a PC laptop.

[6/4/2013 10:28:44 AM] emelyn basila: I want to forgive you trey but i don't think Ican stay 3 more months to 123 if I have to stay that long I need sign up a contract exclusive for 1year...if i do that I cannot leave 123 until I finish the 1year contract.

[6/4/2013 10:30:07 AM] Trey Woods | App Marketer: I am not under a contract with 123 employee. I don't get why they can make you sign a contract. Please explain further.

[6/4/2013 10:36:35 AM] emelyn basila: okay let me tell you the truth trey I work almost 3months at 123 as a trainee ...that is true trey ... and now I already done the training stage, the company ask for my medical records for a contract signing...but i did not get a medical certificate because I dont want to sign a contract..... If I have to sign a contract... that is one year exclusive contract it means I'm not allowed to leave the company for one year until I finish the contract.

[6/4/2013 11:28:20 AM] appmarketer: No, no problem Emz. As I said, you can trust me.

Honestly this is embarrassing on so many levels. Looks like Trey was looking for a new girlfriend.

We have a strict no leniency rule when it comes to full prosecution with the NBI. This is a federal cyber chrime in the Philippines. The agent was arrested.

A few times a year an employee or client tries to steal each other and we have no choice but to prosecute.

We hope that Trey plans to employ his agent for a long time as she will pretty much be unemployable in the Philippines.

It pains us to do this, but unfortunately we have no choice. This record will follow our former agent for life. Every time she applies for a job etc. this will show up on her background check.

This situation is very unfortunate. What usually happens with freelancers in the Philippines is that that the employee ends up having a power, infrastructure, internet or family problem and then everybody looses. Unfortunately, your case will probably be no exception to this rule.

In addition to this, the embarrassment to her family will probably be even worse. Most Filipinos take great pride in their work. We understand that our former agent tried to recruit Trey, but it doesn’t matter, you had a choice.

Ultimately it’s the agent that pays and that is a true shame. Trey will move on, find other employees, but she will always have to pay the consequences for this very poor decision. We are still considering pursuing action against Trey in the US. Thank you.

Lets set the record straight here. This comment was posted by Rosetta Wood. Our client was Trey Wood. Mom paid the bill

We take stealing clients and employees very seriously at 123Employe. 123 has spent millions of dollars on infrastructure to build our company and we take very serious measures when it comes to protecting our business.

In the early days when we opened there was not broadband internet in homes in the Philippines. Now that there is internet in homes it has created an adversarial relationship between our employees and our clients. Obviously there is an incentive for our clients to run away with our employees. Our clients can save a little money and the employee gets lured away with the enticement of possibly making more money. We rarely have this issue as most of our clients and prospects are honest, but a few are not.

When Trey signed up for our serivces he received this disclaimer:

Terms and Conditions :

Internet security laws are very strict in the Philippines to protect the interests of clients like you and companies like 123Employee that invest millions of dollars in facilities and training.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE: if a VA attempts steal you OR if YOU try and lure / steal one of your employee away from 123Employee your agent is liable for prosecution and imprisonment. Per Philippines law, it is considered THEFT and taken extremely seriously.

Reminder: As part of our service agreement you have agreed NOT to attempt to steal the client away from 123Employee. Any attempt to do so can result in legal action and a penalty of $12,000 equivalent to 12 months of full time service.

In addition, all our employees sign before doing our clients tasks. All virtual assistants sign company documents that state we will take legal action for:

* Leaking confidential data

* Client data theft

* Client theft (if a Virtual Assistant attempts / or steals a client from 123Employee)

* Misuse and sharing of client data

Clients can request that their Virtual Assistant can NDA's if required.

This is a chat transcript obtained by the NBI the Philipines equivelant of the FBI, between you and our former agent:

[6/4/2013 10:28:44 AM] emelyn basila: I want to forgive you trey but i don't think Ican stay 3 more months to 123 if I have to stay that long I need sign up a contract exclusive for 1year...if i do that I cannot leave 123 until I finish the 1year contract.

[6/4/2013 10:36:35 AM] emelyn basila: okay let me tell you the truth trey I work almost 3months at 123 as a trainee ...that is true trey ... and now I already done the training stage, the company ask for my medical records for a contract signing...but i did not get a medical certificate because I dont want to sign a contract..... If I have to sign a contract... that is one year exclusive contract it means I'm not allowed to leave the company for one year until I finish the contract.

[6/4/2013 11:28:20 AM] appmarketer: No, no problem Emz. As I said, you can trust me.

Honestly this is embarrassing on so many levels. Looks like Trey was looking for a new girlfriend.

We have a strict no leniency rule when it comes to full prosecution with the NBI. This is a federal cyber chrime in the Philippines. The agent was arrested.

A few times a year an employee or client tries to steal each other and we have no choice but to prosecute.

We hope that Trey plans to employ his agent for a long time as she will pretty much be unemployable in the Philippines.

It pains us to do this, but unfortunately we have no choice. This record will follow our former agent for life. Every time she applies for a job etc. this will show up on her background check.

This situation is very unfortunate. What usually happens with freelancers in the Philippines is that that the employee ends up having a power, infrastructure, internet or family problem and then everybody looses. Unfortunately, your case will probably be no exception to this rule.

In addition to this, the embarrassment to her family will probably be even worse. Most Filipinos take great pride in their work. We understand that our former agent tried to recruit Trey, but it doesn’t matter, you had a choice.

Ultimately it’s the agent that pays and that is a true shame. Trey will move on, find other employees, but she will always have to pay the consequences for this very poor decision. We are still considering pursuing action against Trey in the US. Thank you.
