Interesting Points

I use to work for Hess Kennedy for almost a year and for the months that i worked there i saw alot of shady things happen to innocent people who made a couple bad financial decisions and are paying for it even worst through this economic time through hess kennedy. The name of the company I worked for was called Americorp. We never could let clients on the program or new clients know that we actually worked for a company called Americorp. To me i thought americorp was actually a debt relief company until I started putting two and two together.

Since working at this place i was representing so many different companies Hess Kennedy, Consumer Protection Law Center, Allegro Law and Mezey and Associates.. WE WERE ALL THE SAME COMPANY taking the same calls. How the program worked was clients were suppose to make a monthly payment which partial went to fees nd partial to there escrow but in certain situations especially for clients who weren’t on top of there A game were ripped off and everything was going to the company. We were told if a client threatened attorney general or to contact the BBB they would automatically get all there money, it was true and actually happened until the attorney general and the receiver in FL took over. We were told to tell anyone who called that we had lawyers on board but they were all busy and to take a messege and someone would get back to them. We never had lawyers we were a call center with a group of people who was just trying to make a decent living but was actually scamming innocent people. When things started to hit the fan my boss told me that we were not Hess Kennedy and all the fake lies were not true about our company then she told me that we were the processing center for Hess Kennedy (all the same). Thank God I no longer work there and found something legit. – Source

I worked for The Achievable in Melbourne Florida and it is a scam. Not only were the owners of the company sued twice, once over Kennedy Hess and then over the Allegro law incidents. The owners of The Achievable also own Vortex Debt Group, Americorp, Pure Nutrients, Media Mogul and many other holding companies, all of which are mostly rip-off schemes to lure the unsuspecting consumer into a useless service or product.

After The Achievable was sued, Vortex Debt Group popped up out of the woodwork, guess who the owner is, Tim McCallan. No one was ever allowed to mention the names, The Achievable, Kennedy Hess, Allegro Law, or even the original company, Americorp after Vortex Debt Group was up and running.

Essentially the owners are tying to hide under a shroud of deceit and greed through various corporations and fictitious names.

While the consumers were losing millions to these gluttons, the owner, Jeannie McCallan was walking around in Lois Vuitton shoes and sporting Prada purses. These people are ruthless and uncaring about the needs of the average Joe, their client, it’s all about the money.

I hope this gets out there as a warning, BUYER BEWARE of these companies. They are all scam artists. Vortex Debt Group could possibly be there biggest windfall and scam yet. – Source

Some companies that I was able to find that AmeriCorp does or did provide services for: First Consumer Debt Consolidation, Hess-Kennedy, Hess Kennedy & Company, Allegro Law, American Debt Management Services, Debticated Consumer Counseling, Credit Counseling of America (CCOA), Intelidebt, The Credit Network, and Five Star Debt Management.

    I paid thousands of dollars to Mezey and Associates in the same time frame 2010 =2012 and they disappeared completely . My complaint to the N.Y. Bar association was never answered. I am a disabled citizen that was screwed for thousands I could not afford. It took me years to correct this mess. I will visit NY sometime and I plan on meeting this meezey character. I know where they live now. If I don’t see them I know there is a special place in HELL for people like this. My advice to anyone is that if your in over your head – never pay anyone to sort it out for you- there are plenty of free services to help – NEVER PAY an Attorney. NEVER.

    I have written you a few times regarding Vortex Debt Group/Synthis/Americorp/Clear Blue Solutions and really who knows ow many more names they will have. The last time I wrote I had mentioned this company is having financial problems and was concerned what would happen to the many people who signed up with their company. I left the company not a disgruntled employee by any means but one that would not do what they ordered me to do and that was to lie and hang up on clients, I would not do that as I and just a few others really cared about our clients, well my supervisor ordered me to lie to the clients and I refused to I walked out which is nothing I am proud of but I had no choice but to do so since I would not do what they asked. Well low and behold employees were getting laid off left and right, the call center had over 100 reps and after I left it got down to less then 20 people as of right now they let all the customer service reps go on 05/18/12 and they put 3 sales people to work answering the phones. What has happen is the upper management in the sales dept took over (A BUNCH OF LIARS). They have shut down Synthis, they have shut down the Canada clients and those poor people have lost all there money they will not be able to get their money back. The clients in the US are some what lucky as they have access to their money and can call Global Client Solutions and close their account and get their money back however the clients in Canada do not have that abilitly the money received from the Canada clients gets debited and goes into one bank account whichThe Bank Of Montreal and guess who’s name it’s under yes Tim McCallan yep, so those poor people when they call the center will get no one and they are out their money. Oh and by the way Synthis which was owned by paper only Vanessa Vinicombe well her husband Alex Vinicombe he resigned and since they shut down Synthis she is now working in a cubicle instead of that big nic e office she had, will be just a matter of time before her and Alex pack their bags and head back to New York. Wayne Walton is going to open under another name and who knows what will happen. I wanted to get this info to you in hopes of getting this out there. I truly cared about my clients and have a heart. I luckily took some of my clients phone numbers with me and called them to give them warning in advance, they were very greatful but worried about there accounts that were not settled, I told them I would be more than happy to help them settle their accounts and would not charge them as I'[m not in it for the money but only to help them, I only hope that I will be able to do this as I start my new job 06/13/12. I don’t know if you can do anything or have ways of getting this out to the consumers but if you do I would be so greatful if you could so these clients don’t get screwed. Thanks for taking the time to read my letter.

    So what should I do? I’ve been paying since 2007, and my debts are still not paid off. First it was the Achievable, and then they turned into Hess Kennedy. Would I get my money back for this mess? I’ve paid in a lot.

      I’m afraid to say the chance of getting money back from fees you’ve paid is slim.
