Statement of Claim
Claimant says:
"Empowr has terminated my account suddenly and without any notice. It’s outrageous! They said they sent me several warnings which is totally not true. Therefore, it can happen to anyone at any time and for no legitimate reason.
I had been working on Empowr for a year and was a First Degree Teal Color platinum user with a huge amount of fans. I became a 5 stars seller and always had great contacts with my buyers with: - 545 items at “received” (which means that I sold them, sent them & that my buyers received them)! - About 100 items on the way to my buyers for which I cannot do the follow up and for which I have paid for nothing as well. I sold all my expensive and heavy “Jeunesse Global” cosmetics and dietary supplements… Let’s not forget the shipping costs! What a financial black hole. My precious time, reaching my goals every day (+/- 6 to 8 hours/day) for a year, is lost also. Empowr kept on telling me to keep up the good work!
I was even proposed several time to become a coach ! Unbelievable !
I have created a new account in the hope to receive an explanation and to try to reactivate my old one but without success. Management is playing dead. We are clearly being manipulated. It’s sad, horrifying and shocking.
Empowr already took 10% on all my sales but it was not enough (the market place on Empowr works like Ebay). They are keeping my entire balance of 245.000$ but also all the money I invested on the market place and has no intention to refund me. I am not talking about hundreds of dollars but about thousands of dollars. Empowr owes me over 25.000$ for my sales! It is clear to me that they threw me away like a piece of garbage because they are thieves. As stealing is illegal, Empowr is, therefore, a fraudulent company. I just wanted the money of my sales back or have my account reinstated. It was legitimate and fair. This is daylight steeling ! I was on Empowr to make money to cover the huge medical needs for my 2 Down Syndrome kids and I have lost a fortune! I still cannot believe I got robbed!
Empowr steals money and precious time from honest people. They know that most of us don't have the means to get a lawyer or don't know what to do to make themselves heard. What about the citizens struggling to survive? The ones with health issue? The ones who are handicapped? What about all of us who gave our trust in Empowr? Is that the Democracy they are building? Threatening and lying to people to terminate their account in order to keep everyone's mouth shut AND MONEY? Telling people all over again in your videos that we never lose money on Empowr... Stealing from the poor. Where the rich get richer and the poor get poorer... Always taking about visions... They are just a bunch of criminals. Empowr is digging its own grave. It’s just a matter of time till everything falls into pieces as it has already happened in the past. Indeed, only few of us know that they already had to change names from Fanbox to Empowr (with a nicer looking user interface, new features, but the same old tricks) because of all the illegal operations, the scamings & bad reviews… Empowr doesn't care about my threats but I must do something. I must fight against their unscrupulous schemes. For myself and for all the citizens who had to go through this horrible experience. Remaining passive would mean accepting what happened and that is out of the question. It is absolutely not possible for me to forgive such a grave mistake. How can we tolerate such a huge fraud right under our nose?
Management doesn’t care about the well-being of any of their citizens, just their own paychecks. Empowr can't have a long history of scamming people AND lead a company that claims to want to "help eradicate poverty”. They are breaking every law ever written about fraud, theft and embezzlement. How can they get away with what they are doing? They keep on talking about democracy but everybody is being closely watched. We have to go through Facebook or WhatsApp to be able to talk to each other! They play with fear and can decide whenever they feel like it to delete an account. Therefore, nobody could speak to me or help me in the fear to have their account deleted. It’s a cult company. Their culture is toxic, hostile and very intimidating. To disagree in any way with upper management puts you on the chopping block quickly.
Can you please help me get justice ?
I hope to hear from you very soon.
Kind regards,
Cynthia Rafalowicz"

    1) Wages claim: Do you have records of your time worked and a copy of the contract between you and Empowr that stipulates wages and the method for determining and verifying hours worked? 2) What sort of documentation do you have that you can show to prove your entitlement to the 645 items? These seem to be the major 2 issues in your case and would be a starting point to verify what you are entitled to. Feel free to contact me if you would like further assistance. Good luck!
