Our City Gogo Work Experience Review from Selden, New York

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
I was a station manager for long island our city radio. Never had training, never had guidelines as to how to manage the station. I spent hours and days , hiring, promoting, using my own personal time into this. I was fired. Supposedly I had complaints against me saying I didn't know know what i was doing. Of course not . I was interviewed they said ok you sound like a good match and that was it. There was never station management training. They are a scam. I'm actually glad I was let go. They told us over and over we would be paid for our hard earned worked. Never saw a penny. How can you expect people to work for you for free & be 100% successful ? I'm glad this company went down. Karma :)

Wasted people's time and genuine good intentions

Myself along with many others got sucked in, time and effort of people to review music and write articles daily in a genuine passion for helping raise awareness of indie bands. Many bands submitted music, where did it all go? Lost in a big black hole. The online radio station never happened due to more and more excuses regarding 'delays' due to the pyramid structure. And instead article writing was pushed on the new 'gogo' site, reviews of music and bands, write ups of band interviews. Of course these articles were paid per click with advertising, but all the hard working people submitting the articles who actually cared about the music scene never received a penny, so where did the money go? To the top of the pyramid of course. Nothing new there I guess... And the most annoying thing? Far worse than receiving no money? That the our city radio site ceased to exist so all articles on there which were supposed to be moved over to the new gogo site were lost, articles including live music reviews which bands used to promote themselves and no longer could. I'm sure if the people at the top of this REALLY cared about the music scene they would have not allowed this to happen.

I was station manager for the Tampa Bay area for well over a year. After putting over a year of hard work into this, Our City Radio wanted to charge me an astronomical price to remain manager.

I was really passionate about this because I believed in what I thought they were trying to do with the indie musician.

When I started asking questions about things I didn't understand, I was told that I was no longer a fit. Yes, most certainly was a rip off.

Our City GoGo (Our City Radio) Set up Fake Indigogo Campaigns To Steal Money

Our City Radio (ourcityradio.com) who recently changed their name to Our City GoGo (ourcitygogo.com) started an Indigogo Campaign (indiegogo.com/projects/our-city-radio-supports-indie-bands-local-communities-worldwide) stating that they support local bands and business. They offered incentives for donating like any other Indigogo Campaign. What makes the company owned by Maxx Fairo (google him and his other scams like MBD Marketing Group or google his partner Doug Safriet) different from others who started Indigogo Campaigns is that after the campaign ended, they changed their name from Our City Radio to Our City GoGo (a rip off on the Indigogo name obviously)and Our City Radio disappeared. They never delivered the incentives promised. Notice the date Our City GoGo was bought. The same time the campain was ongoing. They had no intention to ever pay out their incentives. Money was never refunded after the incentives were not delivered. Money was donated via Paypal. As anybody knows, when one donates through Paypal the billing address, name and phone number is on the receipt. When the owner of the company, Maxx Fairo was confronted regarding the scam and stealing money, he replied that he didn't know the address or email address to contact the individuals regarding incentives. The problem with his lie is that all the information was given to him via Paypal at the time of receiving payment. He has no problems using the money. Just has difficulty seeing where it came from Stay away from these people who state they want to 'help' Indie Bands. Helping is not by ripping Indie Bands out of their money. By the way. Where did the money go since it was to help build Our City Radio and there is no Our City Radio?

Yep. Total and complete failure.

Maxx Fairo is a liar. Several promises made personally to me and then broken right away. What a joke Maxx Fairo is. I worked for Our City Radio/Our City GoGo for over a year.

Just a bunch of ***. Maxx Fairo and Doug Safriet skill lies in getting you hyped up to work for free and then lies, lies lies, to keep you until you finally figure out their BS.

Please be careful and watch out for Maxx Fairo, Doug Safriet, MBD Marketing etc,. I hope someone goes to his home and lets him know!

Our City Radio/Our City Go Go Is A Scam

Hundreds of hours put in. Never received a dime. Lots of rah rah calls. This is a pyramid scheme. Our City Radio failed and was taken down to make way for Our City GoGo (rip off name of Indigogo). People worked a year for free and were basically let go unless they paid for the Go Go station, had to go through a interview process and jump through hoops. Investers put lots of money into this. My question is, where did the money go? Be warned of Maxx Fairo. He is a scam artist. These scam artists were also the force behind the Downline Marketing and Ready Built Downline Scam.

They Stole Money From Me! It's A SCAM

stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full stars-rating-full
Our City GoGo had an Indigogo campaign https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/our-city-radio-supports-indie-bands-local-communities-worldwide That is when they were called Our City Radio (but changed the name to be similar to Indigogo to Our City GoGo.) I paid for my band and they never delivered the services they promised for donating. Our City Radio (now Our City GoGo) had all workers work for free for a year. Promising us payment and they never paid. Maxx Fairo, the *** artist in charge of the service would tell us how much money we were going to make and it never came about. Not one penny.

Our City Radio/Gogo MBD Marketing SCAM

Do not get sucked in by the words of Maxx Fairo, Doug Sefreit, Roger Garth or anyone involved with Our City Gogo and MBD Marketing group. They will sell you the world and never pay you a dime. Lots of investors gave Maxx hundreds of thousands of dollars and he rercuited hundreds of 1099 employee/volunteers to build his network. We were told that if we did these content additions to the websites that traffic would pay us. We all did the work. Some managers worked for them over a year and saw 0 pay from it. We were told after we got the traffic up to where we were supposed to that all of a sudden, they had no way to track the site traffic and therefore no one could get paid. The money is going in and right to Maxx' pockets. The investors and partners are pissed and are filing complaints with the FBI. These scam artists were also the force behind the Downline Marketing and Ready Built Downline Scam. Google it and you will see. Stay away from anything related to these people .

I had been working with them almost a year and i never ONCE got paid for it. I didn't understand why they stopped keeping in touch with me but I got mad being their Promoter and never getting anything in return.

I worked for them and did whatever they asked. Told me that we as employees needed to build our station. WE DID! Never saw a penny.

So don't go through it all. The work they have you do takes an all day everyday commitment.

WHAT FOR? NOTHING!

I lost hundreds of dollars with this scam in Europe. I paid in monthly to be a manager for my own station and was promised if I staffed it, drove traffic to the site and prmoted it, I would get x amount of dollars in return.

I never saw a dime. I put hours and hours into this for 7 months and got nothing. Not to mention they kept changing the game. First we were a radio station, so I focused on that.

Then I was told we are a city directory, so we focused on that. I know for a fact that he top guys in this venture are being and have been investigated for scamming investors and slave workers for hundreds of thousands.

When I quit, my band account kept getting charged after complaint and complaint, I finally had to close my accounts and get a new card. They refuse to pay me back for those monies charged after I quit.

Its A Scam! Our City GoGo/ Our City Radio Maxx Fairo, Doug Safriet

I worked for Our City Radio (now Our City Gogo) for almost a year. They kept telling us that we were going to get paid for the work that we put into our radio station and we never did. They held a contest stating there would be cash prizes to whoever built up their radio stations the best and they never paid. Every Monday night they would have a ra ra call telling us how great we were and how much money we were going to make. It was like a cult. Then Our City Radio disappeared. They removed it from online. All those months worth of work GONE. The Our City GoGo appeared (a rip of of IndiGoGo). All of a sudden we had to take tests and what not to keep the positions we were working FOR FREE. If a station manager wanted to keep the station they were working FOR FREE they had to spend thousands of dollars. Soon everybody left the company. Why? It is a scam. Stay far far away. You will NEVER make any money.

OurCityRadio & OurCityGoGo Scam

I have been working for them for more than 4 months. I never saw a dime. No one did. Be aware of this bunch of people. They will try to tell you how good is this, but the more time you are working for them, the more time they are making money. They say is a proved system, but no one has proved that. They say they have 4,5 million listeners, they have none. Be very careful. They tried another scam with RBD(Ready Built Downline), but FBI stopped them, so they tried with this new Ourcityradio "proved" scam.I have lost money, time and my reputation has been damaged.

They are a scam

I had a similar bad experience to many here as I too got sucked into nothing but promises saying I will be paid and I worked so many months earning nothing yet I paid so much into investing in this so called business that turned out to be a scam yet to still be owed money of hard work earnings so please don't fall for the lies and promises. they also encourage and involve lots of spamming which on its own will annoy people especially on facebook and twitter when making the same posts so many times in a day

They are definitely a scam in my opinion. I worked for them for over 8 months and was paid absolutely nothing.

If they are not a scam then they are dreamers without the funds or know how to follow through. Either way they are not a promising company! I will say, that I learned a lot through trial and error. Anyone who works for them and tries to follow through with potential clients, artists, musicians, etc...

will have their good name dragged through the mud. No one will trust you in your community anymore.

Our City Radio and gogo may gavd began from its parent company with good intentions, but it appears to be a load of ***! constant promises that chop and change.

constantly trying to enrol people as staff who will get nothing! pay promises put off, same bull goes on and on over and over achieving nothing.

They may mean well, but ultimately will never work.

false promises, nothing works or gets finished, no salary or revenue, waste of time!! its not ok to offer "jobs" that are not real, not ok to say it's all about the music when it's clearly a marketing pyramid or mlm scheme.

its not ok to offer people money or revenue that will never arrive!

avoid it!
