Ongoing Issue

By Paula Reed Ward, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette A Monroeville businessman pleaded guilty this morning in federal court to not paying more than $600,000 in taxes. Suhendra Ajmani, 66, who owns American Coal and Minerals Co., pleaded guilty to one count of tax evasion. The company is a coal brokerage, in which Mr. Ajmani bought coal from suppliers and then sold it to customers. According to the prosecution, he asked his accounting company to give him all the information on sales and expenses, and he then provided different information to his tax preparer for the years 2003 and 2004. The first question Senior U.S. District Judge Maurice B. Cohill asked the defendant was for him to state his name. Before he did, Mr. Ajmani apologized profusely for his actions -- something he did repeatedly throughout the hearing. "Your honor, I'm a felon. I did not pay my taxes. With that introduction, I'm ready to face the consequences," Mr. Ajmani said. "I brought disgrace to my wife." His total earnings over the two-year period were more than $2.4 million, but Mr. Ajmani claimed on his tax return earning just $767,000.. The total tax loss both parties agreed to is $617,929. Mr. Ajmani has already paid that amount, said his defense attorney, Cynthia Eddy. He will be sentenced on June 2. Based on the tax loss, Mr. Ajmani's estimated guideline range calls for 24 to 30 months in prison. Show less

It's a Boiler Room environment. Good for initial experience in IT Recruiting & Sales, but you'll want to get out of there as fast as you can.

EXPLOITATIVE Company - Look elsewhere

It was advertised as a contract-hire position--but when I talked to the recruiter, he said, no it was a full time position with them (Logix Guru) then "transitioning" to full time w/their client. Which is hog-wash. There is NO GUARANTEE. It's a contract to hire--we all know what that means! So they wanted me to relocate at my own expense, with no benefits (until 1 1/2 months later when their benefit period kicked in and he said "it wasn't worth it" and they usually didn't give benefits), no job security--and get this! For LESS THAN HALF of my last bill rate??? What this means is--they hire me so they can pocket more of the bill rate from the client. It's usually given to the consultant to make up for no benefits. But these guys want it all... EXPLOITATIVE and a ridiculous waste of time for anyone with IT experience...

What do you expect? You were going to work for a company owned by a convicted felon, Singh Ajmani, who stole $600,000.00 in tax money.

If he has the ba**s to steal from the IRS, you think he's worried about paying you a proper bill rate!!?? :(

#720051

Singh Ajmani is a convicted felon. What do you expect working with him?

Ethics?

He is a P.O.S. :grin

Great Place To Work in a Positive Env!

I worked for Logix Guru for a period of almost two years in the mid 2000's. I graduated with a B.A. with a 3.4 gpa and promptly entered graduate school finishing number 3 in my class with a masters in a health related field. I was so pleased to get a job offer from Logix Guru starting at almost $30,000 per annum! Who would have thought that I could finish almost seven years of college and be making almost $2,100 per month after taxes! I am grateful for the opportunity to have worked there. I made three IT placements in those 18 months as well making another two thousand! Singh Ajmani was fantastic to work for. He told me that the salary I was making was in line with the amount of education I received. I have now moved into the primary field of my education and have moved into the arena of around $70,000 per annum but I feel that I am way overcompensated. I agree with Singh Ajmani as he explained to me that someone working for him with a Masters degree should be paid around $28,000 at his company. There is no need to be paid any more than 30k without a Ph.D.

Logix Guru is the laughing stock of the Pittsburgh IT market. All they do is bring Indians over, pay them next to nothing and threaten to send them back if they don't go to work. Singh Ajmani is like a pimp

I absolutely hated working for this man. It was a nightmare.

#344748

Funny to see Singh Ajmani finally got caught doing something wrong. I should have seen through his BS when I interviewed with him.

His nephew Ravi called me from my resume that was posted online & had a decent chat with him. I typically get either a good or bad feeling with people when doing business with them. Not something magical or mystical here, just from being clear-headed and in business for a few decades will do that to you. Anyway, after talking with the jr Ajmani, he suggested I come in to speak with the owner, Singh.

The first thing that took me back was the fact that he was about 5 feet tall. I couldn't stop thinking that this guy must have a Napoleon complex & boy let me tell you...that was just the beginning. I ended up taking the position (against my better judgement) and Singh kept telling me how business was down and all he could pay me on salary was XYZ, blah blah blah. Little did I know at the time he was putting over a half million dollars of money in his own pocket that was suppost to go to Uncle Sam.

So, I took the job, negotiated the best I could for myself and came up with a start date. I came in for work and was given many boxes of old files to sift through. I came across DOZENS of names of people who were in my same position in years & months past. None of them had any tenure.

Came to find out they jumped ship when they found out about this company or were fired for no reasons that any one else wouldnt give me any info about.

The bottom line is, this place is a nightmare. If the Ajmani boys dont like something about you from day one, your time is numbered. You wont have a fighting chance.

I ran circles around the other staff in terms of my tenure in the industry as well as experience with much bigger, established companies. I brought in business right away & it didn't matter...Singh had it out for me. I did everything I could to make it better for myself...,came in early, did other work outside of what was expected, drove to and from the airport, client sites, worked on weekends, etc. It didn't matter.

I needed this job and took it for less than I made previous but Singh Ajmani made it a living nightmare. I have moved an and have never been happier but I needed to post this to anyone that is considering working internally for this organization. Please be aware and careful. It is a revolving door so make sure you have savings to fall back on and keep a resume handy.

You could do something so innocent and simple but catch Singh on the wrong day and you will be history. Great job if you are looking for experience to build a resume or if you are young & single.

If you have people at home that depend on you and your income for survival...., well lets just say that you are going to dissapoint them through no fault of your own. Good luck and God bless.

Handling individual tax preparations since 2004. Many satisfied individuals have saved in excess of $600,000.00 using the "Ajmani Method".

All you need to do is pull your tax statements from your local accounting office and make an appointment with Singh to get started. He will look for those loopholes the government leaves open and BAM! You'll be surprised at what he can do! Take an hour, wait in his dark basement with the support and recruiting staff, listen to the management torture some poor working still who has no idea they are going to be fired, and presto!

Your taxes will be done, you'll be saving thousands (not knowing Singh is breaking the law for you), and everyones a winner!

This is the only way we've found that we can show someone making $30,000 per annum and get $44,000 back in returns. Thanks Singh Ajmani!!

$600,000 tax evader escapes prison term

PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW

Friday, July 9, 2010

A federal judge Thursday sentenced a Monroeville businessman to three years of probation for failing to pay more than $600,000 in taxes.

SIngh Ajmani, 66, pleaded guilty Jan. 27 to one count of tax evasion. While he obtained accurate income figures from his bookkeeper, Ajmani gave reduced figures to his tax preparer and underpaid his 2003 taxes by about $77,600 and his 2004 taxes by about $540,000, prosecutors say.

U.S. District Judge Maurice Cohill sentenced Ajmani to 250 hours of community service and imposed a $50,000 fine.

Ajmani operates two Murrysville businesses, a coal brokerage firm called American Coal & Minerals Co., and an information technology company called Logix Guru.

Federal sentencing guidelines recommended that Ajmani serve a sentence of 24 to 30 months in prison. His lawyer, Cynthia Reed Eddy, presented a letter from a certified public accountant that both companies would likely fold if Ajmani were sent to prison because none of his employees has the required skills and business contacts to keep them going. Further pointing out he hires nimrods for both of his organization.

The two businesses support at least 20 families on less than $30,000 each and Logix Guru plans to add 10 more employees that will work in his dark basement, bringing the total to 15 people working in 400 square feet, she said.

Ajmani apologized and said his crimes have brought him personal shame and have hurt his family, friends and business colleagues.

"I must do what I can to make things right, and next time I will move my undeclared funds to the Cayman Islands away from the eyes of the IRS" he said.

In addition to pleading guilty, Ajmani has paid the taxes he owes plus penalties and interest. A native of India who became a citizen, Ajmani said he regrets committing felony after felony against his adopted country.

"I have lost my most revered citizenship rights -- my right to vote, to hide money, lowball employees, *** in the car with employees in it with the windows closed and annoy my recruiting staff," he said.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Stephen Kaufman agreed that Ajmani has shown remorse for his crimes and has a lifelong history of performing charitable works. Still, trying to evade more than $600,000 in taxes should result in some prison time, particularly when it's clear that Ajmani was motivated by simple greed, Kaufman said.

The ease with which he paid the taxes and penalties shows that, he said.

"The scheme here is clear," Kaufman said.

The judge said the cost to taxpayers of imprisoning a nonviolent offender like Ajmani would "far exceed the benefit." And Mr. Ajmani's co-council was concerned that his client would likely have to take it in the keester as well during his prison stay. "We wanted to avoid that at all costs" adding that "Mr. Ajmani would feel uncomfortable in a wedding dress for his cell mate"

"Other than the instant offense, Mr. Ajmani has been a law-abiding citizen his entire life," Cohill said.

Terrible Place To Work

This place was terrible to work for. They had massive turn over with their sales staff. The owner Singh Ajmani will make this place a living *** if he does not like you. The sales & recruiting staff work in a damp basement that doubles for a storage facility. It makes the movie "Office Space" look like a slice of heaven. Logix Guru has flooded the web with all these postings that give themselves "5 out of 5" as a place to work, but alas-take it from an insider, it it HORRIBLE. You will get lowballed on your offer stating that you can "make it up with commission", but there are no placements being made, so no commission. TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE, TERRIBLE. Singh just got out of a heap pf leagl trouble from him not paying taxes on almost a million dollars, and the info is all over the Internet. So im sure companies in Pittsburgh would rather have Hepatitis C rather than have their names attached to him in case of an audit or something.

Singh Ajmani blew through employees faster than the New York Yankees go through Gatorade playing a doubleheader in mid - July in Miami with 96% humidity. Give ya' some idea now?

#219190

EVERYTHING written by Lindsay Learn is nothing but spin control. they could care less about their employees, but they don't like it being aired out in public forum like this.

#219181

Trying to DE-fame Logix Guru!? As there was something that consisted of "fame" in the first place?

Why are you people upset that someone is posting their opinions in the first place? This is still America is it not? It sounds to me there is some truth to the original posting judging by not what was said but your reaction to it. I am deeply involved in the local Pittsburgh IT market & it is fairly well understood that if you are working at Logix, you must really be out of employment options.

It really is an end of the line type of place to work.

The "perks" of working there is that the heat still works in the winter. 'nuff said.

:sigh

Ummm, no their not false. Throw in an application, get hired for the 3 days Singh keeps you on board & you'll see. This place is HORRIBLE.

Misrepresented IT Candidate(s)

I work in Human Resources for a major telecommunications company in Pittsburgh, PA. We are growing as far as internal staff & needed additional information technology staff to assist us. We received a cold call from the sales department at Logix Guru in Murrysville, PA. After signing a contingency agreement with them (meaning we only pay them if and when we hire one of their candidates) we started to receive resumes of potential hires. We as an internal team spent countless hours meeting about the resumes, skill sets and backgrounds. After deciding to interview a candidate, we had him on speakerphone so the team could ask random or specific questions. We found out one candidate had not gone through a technical screening prior to our interview (Logix Guru insisted they did this), another candidate was presented to us from Logix Guru as having a Masters degree (he didn't)and another candidate accepted our offer and then Logix Guru changed the terms of payment and the amount due AFTER we decided we wanted him. They were miserable to deal with, unorganized, unprofessional and would NEVER RECCOMEND DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM!!!

I worked there too. I was going to keep my mouth shut about it but I cannot.

Most of the postings are true. Sales & recruiting work in a basement with cinder block sized windows. he was an awful, awful man to work for. If he can screw the government out of all that money and not be afraid of ripping the same people off that can put you in prison for a long, long time, think of how he treated his staff - ESPECIALLY if he didnt like you.

Horrible terrible, non deodorant wearing pipsqueak that STANK like curried foods all the time & he would sweat and sweat & made him stink worse. EEEEEEEEWWWW!!!! you'll get back to you Singh how you treated people. I hope you mess up on your probation so you can go where you belong, in prison.

Shame on you for stealing from my beloved country that adopted you with open arms, let you make all the money you could ever dream of making thanks to capitalism, and you little greedy stink, all you had to do was pay taxes. Couldn't even be nice to people either.

Mr. Ajmani did NOT steal or misrepresent $500,000. It was $600,000

We at Logix Guru feel it was taken out of context.

I work for AK Steel here in Western PA & we have dealt with Logix and Mr. Aj-Manny for years.

He is a great guy and runs a good company that has always been fair to us. We have hired several consultants over time with him and will continue to do such. I realize that he stole close to a million dollars or didn't pay the taxes on it or whatever the case may be, but he is still golden in my book. Now, I may look a bit closer from time to time on my invoice statements monthly from time to time but we all make mistakes, right?

As 2010 winds down, I may even have him look at my W2 at the end of the business year to see if he can help me hide some income as well. And to all those negative people out there, Singer Aj-Manny is a GREAT guy. I mean, he may hire and fire solid employees for no good reason from time to time, making the mother and father of a 3 year old boy have to go on welfare to feed their baby, but sometimes powdered infant formula isn't all that bad, right? Kids can eat government rations from time to time.

Singer has EVERY right to fire a productive employee who happens to not say "good morning Mr. Aj-Manny", right??!? Get over it all of you negative posters out there! Logix is a GREAT PLACE to work!

Even if your boss hides hundreds of thousands of dollars in undeclared income from the Federal Government and becomes a convicted felon after Federal proceedings DOESNT mean he's a bad guy,

it just means he's a sharp fella' who can out-smart the IRS.

Were all rooting for you Singer!!! Keep up the positive work!!!

#160169

Logix Guru has now branched out into their most successful business venture ever! Ajmani Tax & Accounting Services was started a few years back but is promising folks they can save tens & even hundreds of thousands in income taxes!

This magical system was started by Singh himself and saved over 600,000 in taxes alone!! Please contact a member of the staff and ask how you can take advantage of this limited time offer ( not to mention taking advantage of that pesky Uncle Sam too ).
