I worked for All-Star Alarms from April 18, 2013 – April 24, 2013, 8 hours each day. I made outbound cold calls for them, trying to get people to sign up for an appointment for a ‘FREE’ alarm system, if they signed a 36 month contract. I was told that the pay was $8.00/hour, not much more than minimum wage. Because I needed a job to pay my mortgage, I agreed to the terms. I was ‘let out of my contract’ on April 25th, because I did not schedule any appointments. Now, 6 weeks later, I am STILL WAITING for my paycheck. I notified my former boss, and told her that I did not receive my check. She said she would check into it, and then I was told the check was mailed, and they needed to look into where it was. Every day, I contacted “H”, and she would get in touch with Gary, and it was always some different problem. One time, they said that I had not completed the tax documents, but I had them in my sent file on my email. They requested that I fill out another W-9, and a W-4. I did so, all the while knowing that a W-4 is for tax withheld for an employee, and I was an independent contractor. So…another lie. I am asking only for what I deserve to be paid – $320. Gary Shingledecker is UNTRUSTWORTHY!!! He does not respond to emails, he hides behind his manager, like a little coward. Do NOT work for this company, unless you want to do volunteer work. You will not get paid, and will be given a total run around. I am going to the labor relations board, the BBB, and anyone else who needs to hear what a con artist he really is. I think that the Pennsylvania media needs to know, as well, and perhaps if people see how he treats his contractors, they will see the TRUE Gary Shingledecker!

Warning From RIPOFF SCAMS Please Read below:
If you have been fraudulently charged on either your debit or credit card, or coerced into paying and was scammed, we would advise you to immediately either visit in person, or call your Financial Institution that issued you the card. Open a fraud dispute on all charges incurred, file fraud charges against the committers and cancel your card numbers… then get new card numbers issued to avoid more Fraud charges in the future!
Most of these Scam companies will offer you zero help with a refund, you MUST take matters into your OWN HANDS! Sometimes they will promise you that they will refund you to buy more time… DO NOT fall for that, from our experience most never see a refund. They are counting on enough time to pass that your fraud claim time limit window will expire, ultimately allowing them to keep your hard earned money! File the Dispute ASAP or Open a Dispute with PayPal and Immediately Escalate it, if you paid through PayPal to get your funds back! The longer you wait to dispute, the less chance you have of getting your money back. This is YOUR MONEY, fight for it!
If you find that you are past your window to File a dispute with your Financial Institution, or were denied for any reason, please do not hesitate to File a Complaint with the CFPB at this link here: https://www.consumerfinance.gov/complaint
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), is a U.S. government agency that makes sure banks, lenders, and other financial companies treat you fairly.
They will investigate and can sometimes get the payment reversed and taken back from these Scam Artists even if you lost your Fraud dispute with your Financial Institution due to the Scammers lying! Stay vigilent and good luck!
