If you want to read the court documents from the lawsuit that the real Trevor Keyes and Wright Thurston are pursuing against Pinnacle Security, check out:

It's pretty intense. Apparently a merger was about to happen around the same time as the bankruptcy, but it didn't happen now Firstline wants $450 million from Pinnacle. Sweet!

It is called Elevate www.GoElevate.com

It really sounds to me like Wright and Trevor just got the butt end of the deal. I have a hard time believing that they would take advantage of others like that. This looks like a smart new launch.

I've been involved in Elevate for about a month now. It actually looks like our service does upgrade several people and save them money (I've had sales I could have made that wouldn't save people money, and I refused to close them). I met Wright today, incidentally, and he showed us some pretty cool stuff. He's an inspirational speaker (all salesmen should be *snicker*), and our summer program, while brutal toward the reps (door knocking is rough, man), seems to be building some of us some character. That said, I liked Wright. He's very likeable. This summer will definitely confirm or deny the truth of what he said to me.

ELEVATE...wow. they haven't paid me in 2 months. i was doing lots of sales for them and so were my guys that i hired with them. i never heard trevors name in that stuff but wright i saw on occasion. they were reselling products often for resellers themselves. i'm currently owed 5-6 thousand. they owe all their employees not just me and i'm one of the higher up managers. they "firstlined" us again. i hate those guys and wish the worst hell upon them. i was shafted by them in firstline and again with elevated. all together they owe me over 10k in work i've done. i don't know why these guys aren't in jail. any firstline employees out there ever get paid on backend? prob not. oh well FML!

Elevate, Firstline... does it matter the name? Its the same story with a different title. At least when we worked for Firstline, they pretended to care about the employees. I will NEVER recruit another person to work for these crooks. They are perhaps the best salesmen I have ever met. Hell, they got me to give up 3 summers and many months without pay. Once you see through the smoke and mirrors, your realize most things they say are lies just to get you to stick around a little bit longer. Afterall, you are the one who is going out getting business for them everyday and putting food on their families' table, while you are starving because they refuse to pay you. Or if they do pay you, your check bounces. WOW! pretty pathetic, huh?

My personal favorite part? If you question anything ex: "Hey any reason in particular my check wont go through at the bank?" Your response from Wright is that is it a funding issue (everything always is... he never is at fault for anything) or a mix up at the bank and you should try another branch. Seriously? No wright, the check bounced because you wont put enough money in the payroll account to pay the employees. Then you get a lecture about how you need to be loyal and stick through it, Just go to work and put your head down. Why would I work another second of my life for someone who wont pay me? Hmmm... my advice to you.....NEVER WORK FOR THIS MAN!

Signed up with Elevate for phone service what a scam. Never able to get a dial tone. They have you sign a 2 year contract this information is burried in thier TOS, but the salesmen never tell you just skip over that part. And a $200 cancelation fee. The reason for this is the service is so crappy they need the cancelation fee to make money. when you can't make a phone call or get anybody live on the phone to rectify the problem

Watch out for a new venture "Point Home Security" or "Point Protects" Trevor Keyes started a new alarm company which has managed to screw dozens. Located in Hawaii and Utah and Florida as of now. Hopefully salesman who are wronged will find this and chime in. They write contracts and breach within days.

My husband and i recently signed up for Point Protects on june 2nd 2012. we signed a 36 month contract with that at 45.99 a month. they deducted the first payment on the 6th of june...rather quickly. but they havent deducted another payment yet? I now have an eerie feeling about them... and seeing these posts arent helping either.
What should we do? any suggestions?

I am looking at Leaving vivint for elevate. Everything sounds good. The pay looks great. The system they have of follow up and multiple products seems to have a lot of advantages. However, I've heard a lot of horror stories about these two guys. It alarms me that they have been growing elevate since 2009 and are still so small. Has anyone had recent experience with them?

Alarm Sales Rep. Let me know what your experience has been with Elevate. I'm thinking about buying more shares of the company and would like to have the experience of someone who actually works with them.
