Allston Group Inc Complaint - Allston Group Inc Is A Serial Scammer - Beware Of This Work-From-Home Scam

Review by mdkeal1978 on 2010-04-18
I was one of those people that got tricked by this company but I did a search for the company online and found out that they are a SCAM!!! So everyone watch out for ALLSTON GROUP INC. I found out that their website, their contact information (like phone and fax number) is all a SCAM. The main job they try to get you to do is become a Payment Processing Agent and what you actually end up doing is transferring stolen funds to your bank account and back to the criminals. They claim that you will get paid $2300 for the first 30 days (probation period) and then after that your salary will go up to $3000/month. But after the 30 days there is no more work and your bank account get frozen/closed out.

I'm worried myself since I fell for this SCAM. So everyone else out there WATCH OUT!!!! DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!!!

You make some SERIOUS accusations, but no word on what you used for proof that the funds are stolen. For all the casual observer knows, you had a disagreement with the management and they disputed the activity.

Please don't take offense, but your word that they are fraudulent is not enough. Have you contacted the Police? Has the company stopped responding to you? You've given no details.

After I gave them the information they asked for I could not access the website they originally provided for me and could not reach them by phone. I left them messages and no response back. The emails even stopped. I did a search on it and came across a website the gave me information about the company and it mentioned that they are scammers. I reported it to the FBI website.

Well thanks for reporting a scammer then. Good luck! I'll save the usual suggestions, since you seem on top of things, hope you keep one step ahead of them!

No, the company is fraudulent! I went through the same thing that Mdkeal1978 has gone through, but I did the transaction once and now they won't contact me either. I am so ANGRY! I also reported them to the FBI. Now, the bank is trying to blame me for Allston Group's scam when I was trying to get a part time job. I am FURIOUS! If a person doesn't believes us, then I suggest that person should sign up with the company as a Payment Processor and find out for themselves.

Karrotz, I'm sorry you got pulled into a scam. But that does NOT justify putting any company's name up on the list of scam artists without proof. I may be still waiting for my first star, but I know right from wrong. The OP just put up accusations without any description. I'm more inclined to believe it with the explanation, but simply yelling "SCAM!!" and hoping people believe you is very wrong.
