Who cares about the gifts they gave away, it is not like they paid one red cent for them, initially yes, but after they gave them they wrote them off, also taking more deductions for this that and the other thing from the workers paychecks, so that made it so we paid for our own! WTF Covattos can whine all they want for what they actually never did for us but truth is known by all even the current employees. With the exception of the "Covatto Cult".
I won a nice gift one year and I would like to Thank the IRS for it!

You people are sick and delusional...its really sad. Hey theresa since you want to tear people down do we need to talk about why you were FIRED from telatron. Its a story everyone on here will love im sure.

And ya you ran a business...sure you did. Thats comical.

But hey bi-polar is an illness a ton of americans have. You are not alone.

Obviously So sad joins the bipolar world too. Wow sure can get under the skin of the cult in this site! This is all you can come up with is why people were fired or why they left, my goodness why do you think they did poorly for the company to be fired or when the idiots would not fire them they walked out, do you think this is the first time anyone has been fired or left a job? Pitiful is what you are! Smoke some more crack.
Even more sad

Why would you make fun of people if they do have a handicap, here is what the place that wants to buy your business says.........

VCC also seeks to engage other minorities and disadvantaged persons in communities throughout the United States by providing contact center agent employment positions managed by Service Disabled Veterans.

What do you think these Veterans have to be, shot or fight a war to be called Handicap? They also have major problems going on in their heads that need attention. You are a disgrace to humanity.

At least she has an excuse for being crazy and delusional, whats yours?
Even more sad

Whats yours? Plain and simple Mrs. Covatto has been lying to the Judge this whole time trying to say that Unicredit and Telatron are not the same business when in FACT they are. I sure hope you are being paid enough money to put some away you will definitely need to, you can count on that.

Another point I find exremely amusing, if it IS such a "reputable company", then why should a few people make a difference? As telatron lovers have stated, we are all just disgruntled ex-employees. The more obvious question is why do they care? Is it because there is some validity to what we state? I examine actions, not words of people.

Actions are: we filed a lawsuit that has merit, because telatron forced us to work off the clock. Telatrons actions--deny there is a law suit and get rid of people who mention it.

Action of consumers who were duped by Unicredit: file a complaint with the Attorney General on Unfair Debt Collection Practices. Actions of telatron--deny it.

Actions of Attorney General--order to tear down the "courtroom", because it is deceptive. Actions of telatron---tear it down and keep it hush-hush, another form of denial.

Actions of Ex-telatron employees: create a facebook page so we can keep it contact as to what is going on with the lawsuit. Actions of telatron: have people create false FB profiles and get into our page to find out what is going on. I do believe that if nothing is going on, then why take such measures? Would that be because they are paranoid?

These are just a few things I have noticed. We, ex-employees, consumers, etc... are going through the proper steps and procedures and have broken no laws. If it is such a "reputable company" then the company has nothing to worry about. They don't need to create FB profiles to talk about how wonderful they are, they wouldn't need to attack people on here using their Constitutional Right to Freedom of Speech, they wouldn't have needed to tear down the courtroom if they were operating in a just and upright manner, they wouldn't tell their workers that had their checks bounce when cashing them, to bring them to HR and all the money would be refunded and if the banks charged back their checks, to have them cashed there.

If all of this is just "bashing", "mud-slinging", and "wrong-doing" by us the ex-employees, then why go to such measures? I have always believed that the truth shall set you free. If they are acting appropriately, then it really shouldn't matter what a bunch of disgruntled ex-employees say. Clearly, from the above responses defending the company, it does. I ask everyone: "Why do you think that is?"

FYI she didn't state that she was the one who slept with a Covatto. Her and I both know who she's talking about. A little tramp that couldn't keep her mouth shut. This same little twit also had the same "problem" that this certain Covatto had. Nice try though!

BUT tootsie.. Deb never had to work! IF you are calling her white trash and she worked there you must also work there since you feel the need to bash her .... So are we to look at it as they
are STILL hiring white trash?
, Right! Debbie came to work then e-mailed HR that she quit. Resigned... The brilliant pretty girls in HR told her she had to put it in writing or e-mail HR. It was the stupidity of HR to assume she was giving a two week notice because we all know no one is allowed to work out that notice we are led to the door!!!!
So deb followed the rules. Which by any means are posted in the employee handbook, but are subject to change and any given moment.....pppssstttt...( PA is an at will state ) LOL... Good for the goose good for the gander!

this truly was a courtroom, we were told she was a notary and legally able to hear the case, as we had to make a deposition of our assets, with proof to document our statements. We were told, when my husband got upset that they would bring the officer in if he didn't calm down, and that he could go to jail. This was represented as a legal "hearing", let NO MISTAKE BE MADE, these people represented themselves as part of the Legal system. We were summoned to court, and were told we MUST attend. I hope they are truly found out, while we were waiting a young woman was crying because they made her come again to court, and she still can't pay them, she left after coming out of the courtroom bawling. My husband said then that they are scams, and i thought since we have a legal summons and all it was on the up and up, They can't get away with it forever. Anyone who reads this, if you have had an experince with them in Erie please post it, maybe it will be read by someone who will protect the people.

Do not wait for others, they want all of people that had contact with them to come forward,anyone that went to the fake court or was threatened in any manner. You may get all your money back at the least! Please do not hesitate as they are already making plans to deceive the people of Erie once again! do not let what you paid go by just because you owed it, they collected it in an unethical way, you will not regret coming forward. Thank You
file a private criminal

criminal complaint since the DA hand-picked by the court is doing NOTHING to hold the district justice, the constable, the DJ's daughter, their lawyers and everyone else accountable for this mockery of justice. Google "file a private criminal complaint in Pennsylvania, fill out the forms, and put in on record. The unelected DA will do NOTHING otherwise. Justice will only be done if you victims make it happen!!!
