This was all BS, this was just a guy that got fired and wanted to "get back" at the call center. A place could not run if it were lying to people, and especially after this type of story was put out there.

Yes, this is completely ridiculous.....What is even funnier though is on the actual report the guy named Steven Alford who is dissing on "Summer P" is such a weirdo, like child molestor weirdo! What is pathetic is that Lee County finally gets some decent, ok paying work and dumbass, redneck, uneducated, hillbillies want to ruin it. Then they go out and complain there are no jobs. I just dont get it?!!

Well I wonder this. Is any of the stuff in that article true? And if not why has there not been law suits filled? If the guy from MSNBC was wrong why doesnt KCG just sue MSNBC? Freedom of the press does not cover baseless and merit less attacks so if KCG really is in the good and this is all BS why arent we hearing KCG's side and hearing about law suits being filed?

Has there been any word on this? I mean does anyone who works at KCG know if they are filing a counter suit?

There's not really anything MSNBC could be sued for. Even though the allegations are untrue, the article was carefully written. At no time did MSNBC make any accusations. They just reported what their "unknown *cough*raymessner*cough* source" claimed. So they didn't actually say anything bad about KCG. They said their source said something bad about KCG.

If it sounds to good to be true well then it probably is. To eliminate your debt without a scam go to or call 1(877)276-9907

Ummm "Ahkilov" yeah if you know the owners name and her brother, you probably worked there and quit (cause your too stupid to read) or got fired. Anyone who has worked or is currently working there knows everything they do is legit. Yes, people file lawsuits everyday, but it doesnt mean its true. No one has ever won a lawsuit because there is no merit. Its just a customer that is upset, but they never win the lawsuit! It is actually a great program, that has helped numerous people through difficult times in their lives and its OPTIONAL! Everything has to be approved by the customer.

There are many faults at the callcenter, but they are not about the work we do. Our clients and the programs were represent for them are good programs.
