                                   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'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.

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.

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".
