I began working for theclassifiedboard.com and I have not been paid for anything I had done while there. I was the first hire for this “internet start-up” as an HR Manager making $1200/wk. I was brought in as an independent contractor on a W9 (which I found out late was illegal). This was supposed to be for the first 60 days. I was to be paid by check every week, with the first payment to be received at the end of the 2nnd week of employment in the amount of $1200. The owner (Paul Darcy) met with me and explained that the payroll funds were in a CD that was in the process of being liquidated. During this meeting he promoted me to VP and agreed to a salary of $2000/wk. He also told me that he would meet me on Monday and would have my paycheck then. Monday arrives and we are supposed to meet at 2pm. He calls and states that we will not be meeting because I had been in a meeting for the “company” (I hired a national sales director) and needed to be working on hiring more people and instead of losing a full day between the two of us, it would be better if he were to come help me move. I reluctantly agree to him coming to help me move that Friday, but another person I hired (xxx) was going to be there and receiving a check for the work he did as well (xxx is owed $1600). Friday comes around, I am moving — I am loading a truck with my father and I get a call. It is Paul saying that he is not coming to assist the move, but he is going to Atlanta to “save my job”. He also stated that he would not be back until Thursday. After the move, I was enlightened to the fact that Paul has been down this road before. He had a previous website (laborlands.com) that went down the same path and that none of the prior employees were paid either. I called him a full day before he was to be back from Atlanta and he answered. He admitted he lied as I explained to him that I would be filing against him for unpaid wages as well as looking into any legal action utilizing his local police as well as an attorney should the situation warrant. I made it clear that I wanted only what was owed to me ($4400.00) and what was owed to everyone I personally hired. That total is $10,170. I decided that it would be in my best interest to try to settle with him outside of the court system and legal routes. However over the next 8 months he has continuously lied to me, and strung me along, so I have decided to file for unpaid wages with the AG. I at first gave him until xxx to come up with the money he owes to me and who I hired (or I would file against him with the state)(see below for monetary breakdown), we had a phone and e-mail conversation where he stated that he was getting an investment check from a friend of him from NH who sold a bar and now wanted to invest in TheClassifiedBoard.com. The check was for $10,000.00. He refused to provide any proof, i.e.- deposit slip (with account number blacked out of course), the bank name or the investors name. Paul told me that the check would likely clear the following week, and I decided to give until xxx because it was an out of state check for $10,000.00 and needed ample time to clear the bank processes. We had a meeting set up. I called him around noon and he informed me that there would be no meeting due to the fact that his car had been vandalized the night before. He threatened me with physical violence and legal action against me and my cronies. He accused me of either doing the vandalism myself or sending someone to do it on my behalf. This happened the night before our meeting, why would I have any motivation to do that if I ever wanted to collect my money? Bottom line is that Paul Darcy Jr. owes me $4400 for the work I have done, and owes others money totaling $10,170.00. Please Reference Web Site: for the information regarding his prior business. As it stands right now this is the breakdown of what he owes: xxx (HR Manager/VP): $4400.00 xxx (Sales Manager): $1600.00 xxx (Sales Manager): $1600.00 xxx (Sales Manager): $1600.00 xxx (Base+ Commission Sales Rep): $485.00 xxx (Base+ Commission Sales Rep): $485.00 That is a total of: $10,170.00 He has since claimed to have moved to Providence, RI, and I have not been able to track down an address or phone number for him. I am in firm belief that he is not in Providence, but still living at his parents home in Ashburnham, MA. He has consistently shown that he will lie about going away to avoid paying what he owes. He started with lying to me about his trip to Atlanta, and continuing through him lying about not being able to meet with me time after time to settle this matter outside of the court system. Paul Darcy is a dangerous individual who will continue to exploit the people he hires for his own personal financial gain. He needs to be stopped.
