Any business that changes it’s name 5 times in as many years should be very carefully investigated. Mike Griffith and Karen Hays, are experts in the field of fraudulent activities. Initially the business was called, Az Armed & Unarmed Guard Training Center. then it has gone on to be named the following companies: United Metro Security, Speciality Security Force, Inc., City Wide Security Force, Inc. United Metro Security Force, Inc, City Wide Security Services, LLC, and City Wide Patrol. Mr. Griffith claims to be a retired Chicago police officer, when a simple check shows he only worked as a security guard for Walmart. | Patrick “Mike” Griffith, Karen Hays, Mary Hays, have all been involved in fraudulent schemes for years. Mr. Griffith has been sued by the U.S. Deptartment of Labor, for not paying employees, and fined $100,000 in 2014. Griffith simply changes the name of his company and moves on. It’s astounding to me he has not been criminally prosecuted. | This is not Mike and Karen’s first foray into fraudulent activities. Prior to their current business, they rented out room in homes they either rented or were purchased by Griffith and Hays’s family members. They rented rooms to the down and out, and had their residents, mostly men so far in debt to them, they would either threaten to evict them, take their vehicle from them, or take to the streets selling popcorn to businesses under the guise of their illegally obtained non-profit organization called “Kids Camp USA.” Except there was no Kids Camp USA. | The profits went straight to Mike and Karen, who took cruises, vacations, their income and rental properties. It’s called modern day slavery. Ultimately, they didn’t pay the rent on the rental homes that the tenants were paying and they renters were all evicted. These people and Karen’s mother, Mary Hays have perpetuated a large scale fraud on hundreds of people, businesses and the State of Arizona. Preying on businesses under the guise of impoverished children is nothing short of reprehensible. They belong in prison. They are nothing more than criminals.
