**See how victim rips off badbusinesbureau below!

.....................

I was employed at Amy's Floral 2706 E. University Suite 10 Mesa, Az 85215 from August 9,1999 until January 10,2000. During that time taxes were witheld from my paycheck. These withholdings were never filed with the IRS and I never recieved a W-2 form from Amy's Floral.

I noticed early on in my employment that I was not getting paid for all the hours I had worked. I was keeping a record and I was shorted hours on 5 different paychecks. I brought this to Amy's attention, but was never compensated for the hours I did not get paid. From that point on I was paid for the hours worked because she knew I was watching carefully.

However she wrote me several checks that were returned insufficient that cause me to have check bounce in my account. These checks were never made good. The bounced check, return item#991110 in the amount of $186.32 and the four overdrafts/NSF fees to my account totaling $100.00 were never paid, even though Amy told me several times she would pay them, her excuse was she needed me to bring her the returned check, I was unable to do that because the bank did not send it to me.

She said if the bank wouldn't send it then she didn't have to pay it.The total taxes withheld was $457.76. The total back pay owed is $306.50. The total bad checks and NSF charges for issuing bad checks is $286.32. Besides being dishonest with employees, Amy's Floral is not a licensed business and does not pay the IRS or file taxes.

She is an Armenian immigrant and feels that she is above the law, and has expressed this many times when I have tried to collect this money. I would appreciate your help in getting all that is owed to me.

Thank you

Amy is incapable of telling the truth, and thinks everyone is as dumb as she has proven to be.

Sincerely, Andrea Morgan

"victim" rips-off badbusinessbureau.com, brags that

she's a mormon, says, "my church bishop told me, I did not have to pay."

................................

In an effort to get the alleged victim "Andrea Morgan" her money owed, badbusinesbureau.com was promised 20% nontax deductible donation for our time to call and mediate a settlement that she could not get resolved for months.

The settlement collected for her was for half the amount she originally claimed, because Andrea Morgan admitted that all she was really owed was only about half the original amount owed..!

Andrea never sent a thank you note or a check, not even a simple e-mail thanking us for getting her what was owed.

When I called her to ask about the money she was to send, she stated that, according to her bishop, she did not have to send us anything. She then abruptly hung up!

During an interview with the Florist, Amy repeated a remark made by Andrea, something that was no surprise to me. When Andrea realized she got caught stealing, she bragged that she was a mormon and she would not get into any trouble for what she did?

Andrea Morgan's friend Peggi Paredes of Higley Arizona, whose E-mail address was [email protected], must have paged the badbusinessbureau more that 6 times in an effort to push for us to get Andreas money (allegedly) owed to her ASAP! When we called Peggi about the $67.00 Andrea owed to the badbusinessbureau, she just hung up on me! I called back another time and all she said was, "She does not have to pay someone like you."

I suspect that they were familiar with my web site www.MesaAZcorruptionReport.com and that this was just a scheme from the beginning to defraud the badbusinessbureau. ... Well, ...they have met their match!

Flyers will be distributed in their neighborhood and at their church so their fellow brethren will know these members are in good standing, fortifying mormon teachings and traditions, that, "we are above the law."

badbusinessbureau.com Scammed by person they helped!

Yes, Folks it takes all kinds, Just about the time the badbusinessbureau helped a poor downtrodden Mormon lady recover funds Scammed by her former employer she turned around and bit the hand that recovered her cash for her!

When the BBB tried to collect this was her response!!

I do not know what you are trying to accomplish by calling my home. I am asking you to never call me or threaten me again. I have documented every call and e-mail you have made or sent. I have also spoken with the law enforcement agencies. I have done nothing harm to you. Leave me alone.

Dear Peggy:

We are not surprised about your lying to law enforcement agencies. Mormon liars are well documented over at the Mesa PD, zoning department right up to the city managers office.

We have not threatened you as you accused me of on the phone. We are simply asking for the money you promised to pay. You gave us your numbers to call, We provided a service and we expect you to pay for our work.

I will continue to call as the law allows for collection of a debt. I will continue to record the conversations as I have in the past with YOU and Andera promising to pay.

I have your e-mails YOU promising to pay.

Your girlfriend Andrea lied to us, as she was not really owed over $875.00. We took your word and hers as the truth, It Was not. Nevertheless, I did get her what she finally admitted was the truth.

Every week we help people across the country at no charge because they cannot afford it.

Even though we are at variance with what you stand for, we did not let our personal beliefs get in the way.

After all, when you first wrote us, We knew who and what you are, as we have many friends with the LDS.Net address, We felt obligated to help you as we do everyone.

Peggi Paredes, YOU WILL be going to court, I will have you served on N. Pheasant Dr. You are going to be just in time for some national media coverage, ... this will just prove one of our many claims. Your girlfriend bragging that she is a Mormon and immune to justice in Mesa is very disturbing. Not only to me but to Amy's Florist. Trust me, this will not end up in front of a Mormon Judge. Wait a minute, .....hmmmmm ....I'm just thinking, I just got a brain storm! I will let this go before a Mesa Mormon Judge and have the media there.

You are acting like the mormon students that are white supremacists in the Mesa and Gilbert Schools getting away with crimes, See Arizona Republic and the Tribune week of April 11, 2000. Is that what your church and the mormon school teachers teach? Do they tell you "you are superior?" Or is it "do onto others before they do unto you"?

I played back the tape of our last phone conversation, you say your husband is an FBI agent? If he were, you would not be telling me such a thing. You must be a terrible embarrassment to him.

You know, I have all the e-mails where you promised to pay.

You all feel your above the law, as Andrea said to the owner of Amy's Florist, ."I won't get into trouble, I'm LDS" ... How typical. How sickening.

Even though I'm in California, I will have you served and I will have flyers on you posted and I will let your bishop know about your activities. Will he even care? I guess it's they're job to get you off the hook, even with sex crimes and other criminal activity.

Remember, this infomation comes from actual Mesa Police officers who only confirmed what I have learned over the years I had lived in Mesa. See this Rip-Off Report at this web address:::::



http://www.ripoffreport.com/Reports/RipOff2654.htm


I again demand that you pay me the 20% that you promised.

badbusinessbureau.com, LLC did the work for you. Now pay up.

Like I promised you. I would get you your money, .. Trust me, I will do everything I said here to get my money and let everyone know just who the hell you are.

FYI, it is perfictly legal for me to contact you during normal business hours and in the evening before 9pm. I'm not a stranger. You owe me a debt, and I will continue to contact you

to get my money.

Sincerely, and God bless you Peggy, you will need it.

It is unfortunate that Andrea/Peggy are using their religion in that way...I am LDS, have been since I was born...and we are not taught that we are above the law. One of our Articles of Faith states "We believe in being subject to kings, presidents, rulers, and magistrates, and in obeying, honoring and sustaining the law." I can't imagine any bishop telling her that she doesn't have to pay--that would be dishonest, and honesty is highly stressed in our religion. Personally, I would recommend contacting her Bishop for confirmation and/or help. Good luck!!

I have SERIOUS doubts that the Bishop told you not to pay Ed and the BBB. People like you are totally disgusting, using religion as a crutch, excuse, etc., to mask the fact that you are just GREEDY and a bold-faced liar. It will probably cost Ed to collect what you PROMISED TO PAY more than he will actually collect, but I can certainly see his reasoning. JUST PAY THE BBB what you promised to pay; it will also end up costing YOU more, as they will prevail and you will end up getting socked with costs. I certainly don't think Ed is out for blood, but it must cost him a fortune to do what he does..help people like YOU, and asking for little in return. Please get some morals and ethics, would you please?

The complaints filed here on Amy's Floral are over two years old and in no way are representative to the current owner. Since these complaints were filed back in 2000, the company has been bought twice. I can assure you that the current owner has no interest in participating in any tax-dodging, and certainly has no intention of maliciously underpaying her employees. We keep accurate records of all our payroll and sales, and contribute to state and federal funds according to law. It is unfortunate that any employer would withold money from an employee unlawfully for their own financial gain. I can assure you that this will never happen here at Amy's Floral while under the ownership of Patrice Castaneda and Rachel Conner. Sincerely,
