If an Ambassador of the Waco, TX-area Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce knocks at your door or calls your phone, you might not want to answer. Here’s why. by Jack Skidmore, The Liars & Bullies Initiative.
(Special to UnhappyFranchisee.Com) If you live or work in the Waco, Texas area and receive a call or visit from a Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce Ambassador, you might want to think twice before answering.
At the very least, you should screen your visitors and callers better than the Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce screens the individuals and businesses it promotes as “reputable.”
Liars & Bullies Episode 1 Part 2: Does Greater Hewitt Chamber Promote Liars & Bullies?
What the Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce Won’t Tell You
The Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce WILL tell you that its mission is “to promote an environment of goodwill and prosperity among businesses, residents and civic organizations in the greater Hewitt [Texas] area.”
They WILL tell you that only “reputable” firms or individuals dedicated to promoting goodwill in the business community are eligible for membership.
What the Greater Hewitt Chamber of Commerce WON’T tell you is that one of its current, celebrated Ambassadors listed below:
- Is currently being sued for fraud
- Is currently (and separately) being sued for extortion
- Has an “F” rating with the Better Business Bureau
- Has dozens of negative online reviews for poor work and nonpayment of vendors
- Declared bankruptcy in 2020 to erase over $1M in judgements and liabilities in numerous lawsuits
- Promoted a local non-profit charity that is not registered anywhere
- Is accused of having sold dozens of franchise opportunities using false representations, then provided little to no support. All failed.
- Is featured in a Liars & Bullies video alleging non-payment of a local vendor, then using threats and intimidation to keep him silent
Warning: One of the “Faces of the Hewitt Chamber” May Be Two-Faced
According to the Hewitt Chamber Ambassador web page, “Ambassadors act as the ‘Face of the Chamber,’ and are selected through a process of application, approval by the Ambassador Committee and Board of Directors.”
The Greater Hewitt Chamber headline reads: “Special thanks to our current ambassadors!”
Can you guess which of these Hewitt Chamber Ambassadors is facing multiple lawsuits for fraud, recently escaped paying more than $1M owed to Waco area business owners and individuals, is accused of not paying its contractors and bullying those who threaten to disclose their business practices?
HINT: This company is also given false credibility and access to future victims by other business groups and services, including 1 Million Cups Waco (Marion Ewing Foundation), Master Networks, and Locals Love Us!
