Give Scentura credit.. despite conning people for over 10 years with bogus offers of managers’ jobs, these folks won’t quit. The scam has not changed one bit in 10 years and all the con men read from the same playbook. They advertise, offering positions as managers, you take the bait and go for an interview where you get hired, but when you report for work you find yourself hustling bottles of cheap perfume on street corners. The scam has victimized thousands and thousands. Nine months ago we did the story, and now we have found out the scam is still spreading. Be warned and let us know what you think of the scam and our story. YouTube Preview Image

BELOW ARE JUST A FEW OF THE COMMENTS THAT HAVE COME IN REGARDING THE SCAM

I was employed by SYNERGY EXPANSION, located at 1425 Koll Ciecle Suite #101 in San Jose, CA 95116.
I was there for one week because I found out they were liying to me, I was hired for the Maneger Position, and ended up saleing Scentura Creations fragances on Parkinglots all over the City. I was told that I was going to get paid on Friday the 14th, but nothing happend and they did’nt mention anything about it in our meeting that same day Evan & Liz, that’s how that Office’s Owners are called. I know I did something really wrong because I kept 7 bottles of Perfume, but I am very Overwhelmed by what they did to me, I was their number one seller in their office and they keot telling me that I was going to get Promoted on that comming Saturday, But when I started conecting their lies I did’nt know what to do, I’m a Single Mother of two Beautiful Children, and they made me work for them from 9:00 to 6:00pm

I have been scammed by another Scentura Creations office out of Baymeadows FL. They posted an ad saying that the job was not commission based, but in fact, thats the only way they payed you, if they even had the money to pay you that week. They need to be stopped for good, Larry Huhn has started a crooked pyramid and someone needs to knock it down.

We were promised to get paid a weekly salary not $4 or $5 off each bottle we sell. Please help the next class that begins tomorrow.

    Scentura is now operating in San Jose, CA under the name SYNERGY EXPANSIONS. Trust me i know it’s scentura. I went to the first 2 interviews, orientation, and then 1 day of training. They didn’t even tell us we were going out and sell their product. I can’t believe I wasted sooo much of my time there.

  12. Just seen your report on Scentura !! Fantastic ! But there is another break off company that was from Scentura called world perfume . These people scammed me back in 02 . Just for shits and giggles I wanted to see if my story was still on Rip off report ! I come to find out that this World perfume scam is still going on but with a different person . Here is the back story of World Perfume . Johnny Whitworth used to work for Scentura , got into a fight with their owner Larry Haun and started World Perfume . They are identical with their pratices . Now on Wikipedia it says Johnny retired in 07 . Now here is the part that could cofuse people I really don’t understand it . Billy Nolan is running All star motivation which is a Distribation center of World Perfume . There is all sorts of plaques with the World Perfume logo on the wall on their training videos . So I’m not sure if Billy is a relation to Johnny or not . Wikipedia says World perfume is shut down because Johnny reti
    red . But it is not it is running under Billy Nolan and wikipedia has nothing on him . Go to allstarmotivation.com and you can see for you self the World perfume crap all over the place . They even have a you tube channel and one of the videos demostrates how to sell Perfume out of your car !! I just want people to know that what it said on wikipedia is very misleading World perfume still exists

  14. Lisa says:

    This is in reference to the office in Miami. Hester Hernandez and Damon Williams and anyone else who are just using the people is what gives scentura creation a bad name. There are offices that have no complaints because they don’t lie cheat and use their people. The business is not a scam, it’s the people that run the business. Hester and Damon don’t care who they hurt to pay for their so called pod life. They live week to week, use peoples food stamps and tell their people to give their children away just so you can stay and make them money. Even if you manage to get an office because you have been there for two years and people start asking you why you don’t have an office so they make you sell bottles to come up with the money for it, they will take your money and people if you start making more money than them or if your people are better than theirs. They tell you they are gonna help you with ffaar and practice day but u have to pay them and if you do more bottles than them they Try to tell you to double your pcs when infect they keep the money and don’t publish your numbers then blames it on Marc and carol shottenfeld for not putting your numbers in the bulletin. Point of the story is that the business can be a good business if you do it right an don’t do it with Hester Hernandez and Damon Williams or Curtis sherard.

    Scentura Creations is at it again! They now have an office open in Minneapolis, MN and are doing the exact con games that you show in your video! A friend of mines daughter has gotten conned by them (thought she was getting a managers position) and is now having to go out peddling the perfume in parking lots! I have attempted to show her your video (which she refuses to watch) because I felt that Scentura was a scam from the start! Is there any way to shut these clowns down in a hurry?? I’m guessing their up here peddling their product during the Christmas season and I’m willing to bet they will be gone soon after Christmas leaving the suckers that they have found high and dry!

    So I watched your video about scentura creations and everything you said was 100% true there are tons of stories about people getting their “own” offices and who are now homeless because these bastards would break into their offices to steal inventory to get them out and get someone else into their office but the bills would still unknowingly be in their name.. They’re back at it again under the name C.P. Wholesale in San Diego ca. If you email you back I will give you the whole address and my story.. I am supposed to be there for work tomorrow morning at 8:30 but the only reason I’m going is to warn the others of this scam.. Oh and thanksgiving is on Thursday and they want everyone to work that day as well.. Someone needs to stop this..

    Sentura creations sounded like a good oppertunity to jump on being young and needing a job. The job tht was offered to me was an office position however by my 1st week they had us n the rain selling there perfume for hours and unable to leave untill each one was sold. I found it strange tht when cops came around we would have to quickly put the perfume away and act like we where just shopping so we wouldn’t get a ticket. About this time last year a day before black friday I decided not to return because they wanted to start selling perfume at 5am until we sold all the bottles we had

  21. Rio says:

    Scentura Creations is quite possibly the largest MLM scumbag outfit on the planet. Do not even be tempted into their cheap and cruel mind control techniques. Even if your are a talented salesman, they will lie and steal from you anyway. And if you do manage to get your own store, the higher-ups will then steal from you as well. Scentura Creations contains one of the biggest collections of socio-paths I have ever had the mispleasure of becoming aware of. Just stay away from these people. You will lose everything you have if you don’t

  22. Anthony M says:

    My fiance found this job listing on Craigslist. He was told he would make 30,000 a year, maybe more. that he was being hired as a manager of his own store so that he could hire people to sell perfumes. thankfully his mom thought it sounded fishy and decided to look up their store name “SAS”! and found nothing. thinking it was WEIRD that such a BOOMING business had nothing on GOOGLE about them, she researched a little further. She went to their blog page and found the name Scentura Creations talked about all over their http://www.kerrybrunson.com/# but still nothing about the store name “SAS”. so she researched some more and googled “scentura creations” and found this website plus a couple of others like,

    Watch out, they have you ss# and other info about you that they most likely sell to other scammers so be careful. I am going to try some of the locale news affiliates in Chicago about this outfit and see what I can do. The thing is it’s like the carnival, every once in a while someone makes something and if you check the wording in the adds they place they are worded just inside the parameters of legal, not promising anything concrete but they are clearly b.s. I was involved with the one in Elmhurst, IL.Firebird is the name. Fortunately for about six hours worth with Rob, Ricky and Denny. C’mon, really, what kind of place uses the tactics that they use especially with more mature women in the room. The language…wow. I,m no prude but I do have manners. But they seem to be able to keep this ruse up all over the country, again the carnival thing. Bounce around enough and you won’t get busted, hurt maybe but not busted. Managers don’t usually sell, they manage. I just wish I could warn people about this outfit. Maybe I can, I know some people.

  24. Matt says:

    I fell for it also, fortunately only for two days. If you’re being hired for a managers job why are you asked to sell perfume especially sight unseen to friends and family,this is a load of crap. Go online and read all the stuff about these con men and women it’s disgusting. If I thought I could do something about it I would. They all have the same script, all over the country. I had the same un-easy feeling in my gut also especially when they asked me to try and sell to f&f. These people are trash. I was with the one in elmhurst, IL this Denny character is a real piece of work.Any business pro coming to work looking like this was just one of the many signs of trash. I could go on but you get the idea by now. And just take a look at the people going in for an interview and of coarse every body is accepted… yea managers job, go #### yourself firebird

    I recently responded an ad on craigslist on monday about a “excellent job opportunity to learn management positions, administration work and to become branch managers”, I attended first and second interviews and received the job.

I am supposed to attend orientation tomorrow monday october 25 2010 in Aurora,Colorado. I am going to attend as only to warn my fellow victims.

    @9dazzlers Wow really? You are clearly one of the “Bosses” of this BS company. It’s not just one guy, there is TONS of people that agree that this is just a scam, and I am one of them. I just finished a interview with this company and it is clearly a scam. And I was lucky enough to be the golden boy of the class as the owner said, but I’m not going to waste another day at this place. BTW, this place didn’t go by scentura, so that’s why it took me till the second interview to find out.

  31. psychomop says:

    @9dazzlers thanks for letting everyone know that you are a greedy, deceitful idiot. And please, save your rebuttal for someone who cares, because I sure as hell don’t want to listen to you ramble about vague things like “opportunities” and “dedication”. Your job necessarily has to prey on the stupid and desperate, hence the rambling, misspelled responses attempting to defend what is essentially a Pyramid Scheme.

    Wow: talk about LAZY people. I do feel sorry for all these people on the video cause they did scam themselves out of a great opportunity. Especially that lady in the orange/red dress. But what does she know, if you believe idiots that go around carring a microphone and you take there word for everything, then you deserve to be working at Mc Donalds. And yes this job is NOT for everyone, it’s only for the ambitious, goal oriented, hardworking and determined people.

I had my alarm clock all set to go. Then something in my stomach said. Check the internet. I was hired by the office at 621 Jamaica Ave 4th Floor Suite 402. In Queens NY. I just got my sales sheet today. And the worst part is this company has my social security number and drivers license number. I think that you should expose this office also. They have 50 people coming in tomorrow for an interview. Thank you so much for this report. I just hope they don’t do anything with my personal information.

I once before was scammed by a company named Rhino Kirby here in Phoenix AZ,on 43rd and Cactus.They would have me out all by myself (a 17 yr old girl at the time) @ 10pm door knocking from street to street!Imagine if something wouldve happened to me.!! They promised to pay me $500 a week.and i worked the for 2 weeks and never received a damn dime!!Thats why im so cautious to even try and look for a customer service job!.

  37. Brock says:

    I had my second interview with a company under the name 2 & 1 Management. I’ve been suspicious since the moment they called me. Why are they called 2 & 1 management and they are selling perfume/cologne? Why is the office so beat up and no one is ever there but the same “Boss”? Why is the office so beat up when they are supposedly a 100million dollar company? Why? Why? Why? After my first interview I looked up the company online to no avail. So I took a chance and showed up to the second interview. After sitting in a uncomfortable lawn chair for over 3 hours taking notes (None of which made me feel like I knew the job description really) he tested us one by one on the notes we had taken, and said he would write in our notebooks whether we were hired or not and to not open them until we were long gone. After “testing” the first 5 people, he had me come to the front and said “I remember you, in the owner meeting I put in a good word for you, I’m not even going to do this with you. You’re hired; be here on monday.” I was excited hoping I was wrong about everything and this would be the best opportunity I’ve ever had. But, I had a new clue I just had to check into, a fake looking award with the name Mike Hill (The Owner/Boss) rising star of 2010 sitting on a podium in the meeting room. At the bottom of the trophy had the words ‘Scentura Creations’, “Now that seems more like a fragrance companies name.” I thought to myself. The minute I got home and took off my formal interview clothing I sat at my laptop and looked it up online. What a surprise the first thing that comes up is “Scentura Creations: A Pyramid Scheme for the Ages”

    Hello my name is Joshua, i was recently working for scentura scents down in San Antonio. They promised me all kinds of management positions and my own office it all sounded to good to be true so i decided to do some research about the company when i saw the videos and scams. I went back to the office the next day to show some employees. Every one was in shock and velt betrayed. My boss found out so i quit Mark got upset and yelled at every one. Rosie and Mark run an office down here in San Antonio Texas adress is 2379 NE LOOP 410 Suit 110 Parrenbeitel and Starcrest.

  39. Here is the ad that got my attention: http://miami.craigslist.org/brw/ofc/1929332098.html
    REGIONAL MANAGEMENT in Pompano, FL
    Sounded too good to be true at the first interview. I went to the second interview and we started a “training program” with Hester Sherard Hernandez and Damon Williams as the ringleaders. I stayed for the 2 hours listening to their complete BS and something just didn’t seem right. The office was disgusting too, no office equipment except desks and chairs, and just not a clean office, especially for a woman who claims to be making $300,000 a year.

    They never mentioned “Scentura” but they did explain that they were the largest “international wholesaler” of rendition perfumes, $27 a bottle, etc etc. They said everyone in the room who made it through training would manage their own office. The training was a 4-stage process and the first was marketing, where the next day we would start to experience the sales part of the business, but they kept reassuring us this is not a sales position, we would be successful, bla bla bla. The music was blasting, Hester cursed a few times, and gave us this whole 90 minute speech about how she was homeless when she got into the business and now she is making 6 figures, bla bla bla.

    Something just didnt seem right to me. When I came home after day 1, I started doing alot of internet searching, and I found this out for the scam it is. I read stories and postings with almost identical stories, down to their scripted speeches that they use to lure in the unaware job-seekers. I caught on, and luckily only wasted two hours of my time before I decided to forget about this job.

    This is so wrong!!! They are misleading people and not being completely honest in their advertisements, people are trying to support their families and pay their bills with the hopes of landing these amazing jobs, and then you have this company just taking advantage! They state in their ad that its NOT a telemarketing job, but they fail to state that it IS a sales job where you only earn commission!

    Just wanted to give you the heads up about REGIONAL MANAGEMENT in Pompano.

    Scentura Creations is still back at it gain under a new name in Landover Hils area “Selah Management” I found them in the express paper,being a 21 year old yound women; I was looking for employment, so I contacted them via the number given in the paper. We set up an Interview I initially applied for a Customer service position but they claimed it was on call. So I applied for the Entry Level Management position. It went well, I was called back for a second interview and sat in a 3 1/2 hour class and got selected for the job. The first working day we had to sell five bottles to family and friends, I did so selling one bottle. Day two we hit the streets older managers and employees were risking being arrested for hustling this garbage. It’s sad how we get fucked over when we really need a position to pay bills and take care of our families. I hope this gets busted soon.

    Hi there,
    I will do anything to get rid of this company completely, especially if Bill & Brit are still in the works. My husband and I met through the company and that was the ONLY good thing to come about. Believe it or not we were there for about 2 years…..we were brainwashed. It took months of recovery for my husband after we left. And leaving was not easy. People think its easy to just quit something but when Bill & Brit (scentura managers) would yell at us and try to keep us, it got hard to say no….to a point where we did anything and everything they wanted with no question. It was rediculous and we would love more than anything in the world to rest in peace every night knowing that those two along with the rest of the scentura company is DONE!

  44. Ok it started three weeks ago. Everything you have heard about the initial process is correct. The first interview, the second group interview, and then the so called training. In hindsight the training is actually pretty useful in a sales market, but for what we were peddling? The owners of the office are Rob and ricki Zuckert. The numbe there is 630-279-5514. Address 909 South Rt. 83 Elmhurst, IL 60126. Overall they seemed like honest nice people. After my second week (actually being the top merchandiser out of my group) I started to notice people leaving. People who interviewed me, and worked with me in such a “positive” environment. I didn’t honestly think I would be doing this variation of “outside” sales. I even went out of town twice (I came back early during the second trip and ditched the job) to do this in Iowa and Indiana. I have a whole notebook of so called “notes” I took directly from the owners. Everything they said I pretty much copied.

    When I realized it was a scam I was with my grandmother, the following day (this past Sunday) I got calls from her and my parents. I left the next morning from Indy to come home. By then, there was already a shit storm of hell from my parents. The promise of making around $400 a week from the owners, I could not deliver to my folks, the fact that I’m 24 and back at home because times are tough, and haven’t procured a decent job. Basically the lies these people told me, I told my parents, and well it has made me look inferior and degraded. I am no longer at my home. My mind is a whir a the moment so it is hard to put everything into detail on an email.

    I was promised so much but as I started seeing these little things happening leading up to this week, I have fully encompasses how bad this company really is. I’m glad I didn’t have to invest any of my money or name into the business. I would love more than anything to take them out. The Palos Hills, IL office has already shut down. And I know for us or I should say them to be out there, they need a soliciting license (I am not blacklisted in the City of Addison, IL because I did not know that previously) What can we do, what do you need from me. Maybe a few control questions, I can answer more vividly, I’m so tempermental and furious now, it is hard to think straight. I appreciate any help, and like I said am willing to do the same. Thanks

    Convince the editor of the classifieds and websites to stop running their ads and their revenue will stop. This is the only Legal way to shut them down. Write multiple letters until the ads are pulled. John maybe you can do a story on the sites & newspapers that run these ads if no action is taken

  48. Scentura almost got me says:

    Thank you for your videos it saved me from being a victim to this scam! They are doing this now in Burlingame, CA. They are still advertising on craigslist.org. It is being operated by Richard Greenley at 1299 Bayshore Highway #200 Burlingame, CA 94010. Their website is bayareawholesale.net. I am not going back for training on Monday but there are still 10 who are could you please try to do something about it.

  49. Francis Gonzalez says:

    I heard that if someone say’s something negative about you it’s their problem but if many people are saying the same thing then it is your problem. WOW, I was just selected as one of their cream of the cream of the crop and I am suppose to start on Monday. What to do?
    I have been out of work for a while and it is hard for me right now I feel like I will at least be doing something but I had no idea that there where so many negative reports about Scentura.

  50. Nolan says:

    I was nearly scammed by these same exact people. made to believe that I, like the many others that were there for the “interview” would be able to run my own office or “location”. Please shut them down, i spent the day today sitting outside their office informing everyone that went in for an “interview” that it was a total scam.

    1045 armando st. Anaheim CA suite G
    714-630-4900

    Get rid of these heartless scam artists
    I got the number to their lease holder and informed them about the scam going on in the business track that they own and they had no idea. I also informed the FTC and went to every single business in the area and informed them of the scam that is going on right under everyones noses. Everyone let it be known that these people need to be stopped.
