The Brazen Misrepresentation of Hi Def Advertising and Ashley Glen Martin: Part 1

Hi Def Advertising is a predatory direct sales firm specializing in dishonesty, short pay, and unethical conduct. Its owner, Ashley Martin, is hoping to profit from desperate job seekers and deliberately misleads them about the position on offer in order to "get them through the door".

The only job available at Hi Def Advertising is direct sales. A truthful advertisement would read something like "commission only direct sales, on your feet six days a week".  Knowing full well that he wouldn't get much of a response to an ad like that, Ashley decided to stretch the truth in an attempt to attract new employees and pad his pockets.

Below is a typical Hi Def job post taken from a popular career website. Besides the title being aimed at marketing and public relations job seekers, Ashley claims to have positions in advertising, campaign development, and account management. What he's doing is lying through his teeth.

The most interesting part of the advertisement is the keyword section at the bottom of the page. It would appear as though far from being selective, Hi Def recruits just about anyone. Finance, education, nanny, property manager, writer..................the list goes on and on. The only profession I was unable to find was that of astronaut.  A remarkable thought considering that Smart Circle and other Devilcorp parent companies have regularly used the "it's not for everyone" line or in some way managed to imply that the position is best suited for the unyielding and determined.  If it's not for everyone, why do they hire everybody?

Not Again Dude!

I never thought I'd get to post on this blog again but sometimes the universe reaches out and demands action.  On some level, I almost feel bad for the guy but considering what he does, you'd have to see this as a public service for future employees.
So here it is (for the purpose of posterity), your ninth installment of Ashley Glen Martin's Lee County photos.  If nine police officers thought that it was right to arrest this kid after a brief encounter, what must it be like for his coworkers to have to deal with him everyday?

Ashley Glen Martin...New Name Same Game

                                   Hi Def Advertising is now called Rise Media Group.

It's been a year since we first brought you news of Ashley Martin and Hi Def Advertising.  In the past year, Ashley changed his business name, place of business, was arrested three times, cooled his heels in jail, and found guilty of fraud twice by a court of law.

If you're thinking that after such an epic year, Ashley might clean up his act and stop lying to people...you'd be wrong.  Below is a recent job ad from Rise.  Besides the title being aimed at marketing assistants, Ashley claims to have positions in public relations and management.  It's a complete fabrication because the only job available at Rise is direct sales.

Please note that Ashley is contracted to Smart Circle International and is just following their recruiting guidelines.  Smart Circle is known for being a deceptive, deceitful, and downright deplorable company…
