My Video Talk and Al Krauza scam!

I’ve been recently trying to change my career into the Tech field and have been sending out resumes. This one company somehow got a hold of my resume; MyVideoTalk.

I was contacted by Angela Owen about how they are looking for a manager to be in charge of marketing all over the Texas area and I was the right candidate. HAH! (Okay, But I’ll listen to what you have to offer me.) She said she would set up a meeting with Al Krauza who is some top guy in the company and I agreed. The first thing I did, obviously, was search up AlKrauza and

MyVideoTalk is a Multi Level Marketing scheme which is like a pyramid scheme. You have to sucker people into buying a BS product (or hiring them) and you make commissions off of them and you get a percentage off their sales (if they are successful). They even paid ezinearticles to publish an article praising their product and company. Ezinearticles is also a bunch of BS. Al Krauza was responsible for starting several of these mlm companies like bizcalling and adcalls and flaking after taking his money.

Angela called me a few days later and set up a conference with Al Krauza who tried to “hire” me. I asked him what the salary would be and he said its ‘strictly commission’ (Red flag no. 1). Then I tried to argue with him that he should atleast have some base pay with commission and he replied that his product is sooo good that my commission checks will be in the ten thousands per month and it would make no sense to pay an additional salary. Ok, Fine! Then I asked him how this works and he said I have to buy the product itself for $399 and $49 per month after that to be able to sell it (Red Flag no. 2). I asked: “Why don’t you just give me the product for free and when I make that in commissions, just cut that from my check?” LOL. I don’t recall what he said.

During the conversation I also brought up bizcalling and adcalls and Jim Ferras (his partner in crime) and he mentioned that it was still running but he moved on and when I mentioned to him how many people got burned in that scam, he changed the subject. I respectfully declined his “job offer” and he wished me good luck.

Is my video talk a scam? You decide.

    I came across the above narrative while I was also researching My Video Talk. I happen to respond to the same king of ad in my area, and I checked out the company totally.

    What I found is that My Video Talk is a HUGE scam and has no portfolio of legitimate products. The Video Email, Video Broadcasting and Video Website are all BULLSHIT not worth the $399 plus $49 per month, when you can get better product for free on the internet.

    I, myself was looking for a new career to supplement my current business, but I saw that using the MVT products is detrimental to my business. What I found over the past few days is that Al Krauza is a fraudster for saying that $399 was a bargain, and $49 per month was nothing.

    Regarding the ad, I was not offered a job by the person that called me, it was just a bunch of BS one after the other. I found out there was no salary involved.

    I am really responding because I don’t want others to GET SCREWED with these MVT offers, and I can imagine how innocent people get scammed into this crap. And I wanted to make sure that people know that the My Video Talk is a HUGE fraud and scam.

    I encourage everyone to do you research on My Video Plus to see for yourself and I believe you will come to the came conclusion as me.

    You don’t get paid salaries with most MLM companies. There are tons of companies out there that work on a draw system (which as you know pays you a base salary but if you don’t meet your sales goals for that month you go home with $0). I was a sales rep for MVT and I got SCAMMED pretty bad. I actually sold two packages but they gave some lame excuses why I could not be paid.

    hi..I respect what you’ve said…I am just new to mvt approx 1 month…I have 4 active downline on my left side (it is a networking busness that’s why I have downline).. For me to consider it to scam or not is depends on the level of your understanding…I have a good job here in UAE but still I joined the busness because I wish to explore it and earn more additional income…That’s not bad ryt?If you want to recruit or convince someone, you need to be straight forward what it’s all about.. I’m sure If they know already the MLM busness , they will just ask you “well what is the product and how is the commision?”, If they dont know much about networking , maybe theire first perception is “It is a scam”, well guys thank you for reading this..if you want to have conversation with me here is my personal email;

    Always evaluate an MLM company using the 5P’s:

    1.People – Who’s running the show?

    2.Products – Are they unique?

    3.Plan – How good is the compensation?

    4.Price – Is it worth?

    5.Positioning – Are the products/services ahead of trends?

    When you ask these 5 questions, you will very clearly know the RIGHT companies from the WRONG ones. MyVideoTalk is right on the top when it comes to the 5P’s.

    Actually this is scam, and if you get caught in UAE you get jailed + sent back home on first flight after you serve 10 years in jail.

    Jim Ferras likes to arrange a business that looks solid on first appearance. But scratch the surface deeper and you will see an arrangement of dominoes that will imminently be tipped to set of the chain of collapse.

    Ferras is a cheat. I have been ripped off from Jim/Peter Ferras and suffered serious financial loss because I originally believed in his lies. Until it was too late. Watch out and be aware of this king scumb@g!
