I believe the Hyla Company that has recently been working out of a building on Rockingchair Rd in Paragould AR near the Keg Company is a big SCAM! My little sister has recently started working for them in the office. Their objective is apparently to market Hyla vacuums, but what my sister and the few in the office did was call people out of the phonebook and tell them they were randomly selected to take brief surveys and have been entered to win vacations and prizes. My sister was supposed to work at 4pm today, and went up there around 1pm today and they are emptying the building, rushing, pulling phone-lines out, etc. The phone has also been disconnected. She spoke with her boss who wrote her a personal liberty bank check with no name in corner similar to starter checks for approx 1-2 days work and even took out what he considered federal taxes (math done in his head). He then told her the remaining weeks he owed her for would be sent in the mail which seems extremely sketchy from any standpoint! Other locals in town have been working for this company and I believe they are going to be hit with the same "we'll send you your wages in the mail in a week" story and will never see a penny. This is ridiculous and unacceptable: not only for my sister who is 5mo pregnant and now unemployed and ripped off, but also for anyone else that has been employed by or misled by them. My mother and sister went to the office a 2nd time trying to settle the getting paid and the owner would not give a business card or anything instead he wrote some contact info on a slip of paper. They went to police station to file claim and police told them they must wait 2 weeks after the company disappears without paying them to file a report! If a SCAM is what is occurring I'm sure there will be no way to contact this company in 2 weeks and all of these people will have been ripped out of their time, money, and personal information. The public deserves to know so that action may be taken sooner than later. We always hear of these scams occurring but once anyone catches onto them its too late and they're long gone. Well this one is occurring now, has been reported, and our local officials are going to once again let them get away with it. This is incompetent and absolutely unacceptable. Thank you for your time.

This job is a scam. It was posted on Craigslist a few days ago, I went in for my interview and the dude had his young child with him at work, like I thought this job was supposed to be professional as I was told via phone. I'm supposed to start Tuesday and my training is unpaid which is total bull.$825 a week? Total scam. Called the Dept. of Labor and the police and they're watching out for them. I'm assuming its the same people or they're all affiliated with each other. "Mr. Keith" like really... Couldn't even tell me his real name.

I live here in Paragould and never heard of them. Suppose they didn't stay long enough.

I am in Ogden, Utah. A sales representative sold me a used machine with the promise of maintenance. He took my power vacuum attachment three weeks ago and has not returned with it or returned any of my phone calls. He sold us the machine at $1,700.00. I found the same one, reconditioned, online for $428.00. I have been to the authentic Hyla website; they warn potential customers that anyone who cannot produce the papers from Hyla for the warranty cannot because they are not authorized to sell them. Fraud is a felony offense punishable by fines and imprisonment.
That is where these people need to be that demonstrate the machine without the authority of Hyla.
