File this one under "if it too good to be true, it probably is."  It sounds wonderful, the nicest boss ever,  great pay, the opportunity to work from home- or have them open a call center near you, travel opportunities, a total dream job.   Kelli Moore will tell you all about her companies- Moore Exposure, Moore Transition, Moore Fun and about all the wonderful things they are doing- including creating a million dollar infomercial, giving away huge prizes and traveling all over the country. 

Here's the victim's story, with names changed to protect them:

I replied to an ad on Craigslist and was called by Kelli Moore on a Friday.  She was so sweet and we hit if off right away, spending nearly 8 hours on and off the phone that day.  We discussed the problems she had with employees in the past and she offered me a management position starting at $40K a year with the potential of growing into a VP position that paid $140K in a few months.   I started immediately and she provided me with a corporate email and phone number that was forwarded to my cell phone.  

That Saturday, I got a call from her web designer.  She claimed she hadn't been paid in 2 months and couldn't get in touch with neither Kelly nor Janeene, her admin.  Since Kelli had mentioned her in her list of employees who she felt were padding the time sheets, I didn't get involved but passed the into on to Kelli.   She became unglued, furious that "Susie" (not her real name) and said she had already talked to her about this but would handle it on Monday because she didn't work on weekends.  That Monday, Kelli sent me an email explaining that she had talked to "Susie" and that it wasn't lack of payment but a missing check that had been mailed to the wrong address. She also mentioned several times that Susie had been warned not to bother me again.  I didn't quite understand this because my position was supposed to handle the employees, why didn't she want me involved. Then she dropped the next bomb.  Janeene wasn't a real person.  It was an alter-ego she had created to make her look more professional and to have someone to act as a gatekeeper for her. (So if Janeene said Kelli was unavailable, that was Kelli pretending to be Janeene and giving you the run-around)

I called "Susie" and acted like I was just following up.  She unloaded on me, telling me that not only had her first check "mysteriously" disappeared in the mail several times, first it was the wrong street number, then it was the wrong zip code etc. But also her second check, which should have been direct deposited never showed either.  She said she understood that Kelli had just had reconstructive surgery on Friday, or at least that was what Janeene had said.  This started me really thinking- because I knew this was a lie heaped on a lie.  Kelli did not have reconstructive surgery on Friday because she was on the phone with me all day. And Janeene is Kelli.  So we started comparing stories that weren't matching up.   She was so livid, she asked if I had Kelli's mailing address because she was sending a certified letter.  I didn't have a mailing address so I looked it up.  Out of curiosity, I looked the address up on Google Maps.  Kelli had mentioned that she lived on a gated estate- the address was for a TRAILER!    This wasn't the address Susie had, so we looked up her address.   This was for a Victorian in a commercial/residential area in Georgia and there was a realtor sign out front.  When I googled the address, I found a real estate listing.   So I called the realtor to find out if this was a residential or commercial property.

When I explained I was seeking information on a company that might have an office in the building, he sighed and asked what company~ like he already knew.  When I told him, he laughed and said "so she is alive."  He explained that she had been a good tenant for a couple of months and then disappeared and he had to have the Marshall come in to evict her.  So then I had an employee who said she wasn't getting paid and she had been evicted from the place she was claiming to do business in.

I do not know if she is running a scam, supposedly her company does travel and tours for colleges and whatnot, but I couldn't find any colleges that listed her as a tour.  She also claims that they give away a new house (yes HOUSE) and a new car every year as a raffle, but no one seems to have any information on this.  The web designer asked her for photos of the previous winners and she "lost" them. I am not sure if she is really ripping people off or just a really bad business person, but what I do know is I didn't want to be involved with someone who doesn't pay bills and I surely wasn't going to recruit people to perform jobs they probably wouldn't get paid for.


I did a little research into the company.  The do have a website www.omw2moorexposure.com and there few mentions of this company other than on sites like Manta.  We did find a job listing from her   http://www.sheltonstate.edu/sites/www/Uploads/Job%20Postings/2013/Moore%20Exposure_3.1.13.pdf   She is also affiliated with something called ELMS college tours but most of the links found on google are dead links.  A search on whois shows a different address than the business address and like the complaint states, one is a trailer and one is a commercial real estate location. There were no BBB complaints or any other mention of her or these companies.


There were numerous red flags, such as the immediate job offer and overly generous salary. Plus of course the promise of a six figure income.   The fact that she kept talking about employees who "ripped her off" and found the need to hide behind a faux admin sounds like she was setting the scene for more excuses and avoidance.  I am not sure what her game might have been, but I am glad the applicant cut and ran before she wasted time and effort and possibly got herself caught up in a legal mess.

I was scammed by Kelli Moore also. When I read this post it amazed me how similar my story is. I signed a contract with Moore Enterprise right around the time your alert was posted. My position was CS Manager with a generous monthly salary, plus a promotion to Director of Operations w/ raise, after the summer project was over. The position also offered free travel to exotic places. I was very excited about my new Amazing job, so I put my 2 week notice in at the job I was working at the time.

She instructed me to hire and manage 20+ CSRs. I worked day and night w/ the team of 20+ to make the sure we successfully completed the task we were given. Only to later find out that I was never going to be paid. She told me the same stories that I see here in the post about my 1st check being mixed up in the mail several different times and by the time I was to receive my 2nd check by direct deposit, she blocked my number and disappeared. I quit my job for this!

I had a feeling she was making up this Janeen person, because they sounded too much alike. I am now in the process of trying to expose her and make sure she cannot do this to anyone else!!!

Thank you for your post along with ripoff report.com. I had an interview with Kelli and address these disturbing reports made against her. Her argument was she did not pay those who REALLY DIDN'T WORK AND FALSIFIED TIME SHEETS. I declined the offer of employment due to your reports. I can only pray people aren't getting ripped off, as we work very hard to make a living and take care of our families. God Bless All. :-)

Lisa, wise move! I'm glad these reports have helped someone avoid this employment scam! With this many people reporting the same story, very unlikely that she is the victim of falsified timesheets. If she resolves my issue, I will post an update.

Hello,

Kelli Moore signed a contract with me and I have witnessed her committing fraud. I am putting together a packet of information for the Lake County department in regards to this, if you have any signed documents I would love to include them in my package. Also contacting the board of labor who works with employees that have not been paid to get them paid. Kelli was staying at the Homewood Suites in Lincolnshire Illinois and the police removed her from that hotel because she had stayed there for over three weeks and not paid her bill. Additionally she is now taking people's money for a trip to Alaska and I am confident she is using that money for personal use. It is my intention to destroy her business and her name...what she is doing and has done is wrong, please join me and if you know of anyone else please ask them to contact me.

I am trying to get some information from Kelli about a Alaska tour she is supposed to be in charge of. We sent $800.00 to reserve a space for this cruise and she keeps telling us it is gonna happen, but does not return calls or emails requesting more information. She keeps telling us she is having knee surgery on both knees and is in rehab for this. She is not able to have a phone or lap top because she is in therapy and they will not allow her to have these items. The cruise date is getting close and we are getting worried. She is also telling us she would not scam us because she is aware that there is some disgruntled ex employees but they are dishonest and trying to cheat her on time sheets.

Suzanne- that surgery line is one she uses all the time. Read the original blog post. And as far as disgruntled employees goes, the original complainant never even bothered to submit a time sheet because she knew it was a waste of her time. You need to contact the police and kiss your $800 goodbye. I'm so sorry she got you too!

Hello,

Contact the Lake Cuunty Police in the Highland Park Area of Illinois I witnessed them removing Kelli Moore from a hotel there where she had stayed for over three weeks without paying her bill. I watched her collect that money for the Alaska trip....she said to me that she paid the 5000 deposit the first week in January to Hollarnd America...I will check my notes....to see if I can find additional information for you.

During the several months I worked for Kelli she conned everyone I saw her interact with...but it took me a few months to realize that she was LYING all of the time. She is the most devious person I have met. But let us all know she will get burned...you can not continue like she has and not. And on a side note her brother lives in the Chicago area and even he would not let her stay with them when she was ousted from the hotel I saw her at.

I see she still up to no good. I pray for anyone doing business with her....You cannot doctor time sheets on Salary. Read the post!...Some of us that never received compensation were on SALARY!....I pray everything works out for you all and that she pays for what she is doing to so many people. She has definately taught me to do my research before not after. God bless you all

Your money for Alaska is gone!!! That is money that Kelli Moore has used to live on. She took your money while she was in Lake County Illinois...call the Lake County Police Department and REPORT IT Kelli Moore will not be stopped or charged with any crimes unless we all do the work to make her pay and she is wrong. When I was working for Kelli, I sold people the Alaska trip before I knew she was a hoax and a fraud. You will be amazed at the tricks she uses. I tried to phone her today but of course she is not picking up probably having another surgery today.....

Well Kelli is still scamming people. She promised to return money for a Alaska tour and she never did. I cannot believe she gets away with so much. What a scammer. She promised to mail us our checks and kept getting zip codes confused. Yea right!! She swore up and down she would reimburse us and never sent a penny.

Kelli Moore will continue to scam people until we make her stop. Suzanne please contact the Lake County Prosecutors Office in Lake County Illinois. I watched her take money for the Alaska trip while she was my client in December 2013 and January 2014, watched her get evicted by the police for not paying her hotel bill for almost a month and she asked me to lie to the police on her behalf and I did not, would not. She is a thief!!!!.....Her brother who lives in Illinois would not even let her stay at his house.....this women is crazy and she needs to be stopped!!! 305-504-1654 if you need any additional information...

I too have been scammed by Kelli Moore on this Alaska Cruise. I was so excited about the trip that I paid her in full up front. Only to be told one lie after another. She cancelled this so called Alaska Cruise trip July 2, 2014. She has been returning my 1,900 dollars for months now. It is always the checks are in the mail. She talk a good scam. The only reason I gave her my money is because I worked with her mother, Mrs. Jettie Moore, at a previous job. I never you have given Kelli any money if it had not been for her mother. My girlfriend told me after I had given Kelli my money that she was not to be trusted. I can't believe I fell for the okay dokie. I have file a claim in small courts to try and get my money back.

I figured we would not be going on this trip, and cancelled along with two of my friends because I was not trusting or believing her lies. She promised to reimburse us in full and we are still waiting. That was back in March. Her mother kept defending her and covering for her. Just pathetic!!

Hi, I recently got out of a friendship with Kelli Moore. Yes a friendship. I had a close relationship with her where I'd call her Miss Kelli. I am 19 attending college and I was promised by her that I would receive a scholarship from her Elms Foundation of 3,500. That scholarship never came because it didn't exist. She jeopardized my attendance to school because I owed them money and I thought it would be taken of by the scholarship. I also worked for her for her company called College Prep 4 Life and I never got paid either, but I didn't mind at the time because I was friends with her so I wanted to help her but she also promised me that I would be paid. She also promised me to do her college tours and make a thousand dollars a week. She does live in Cusseta, Georgia. Right now she is in the process of getting kids into her College Prep 4 Life Program where the kid's families are paying $57 to get in about 70 kids have signed up already.They will be doing fundraiser in the future soon and also will be charge more money too. She is intending to bring the kids on College tours this summer. Her email for Janeen is: janeent@collegeprep4life.com, For Ms. Kelz: kjm@collegeprep4life.com both are her other alter egos.
I have her phone number but I'd rather not give that out. I was very close to her where she acted like another mother to me. I even met her and knew her when she was going through her reconstructive knee surgery. I am very upset and have never felt so betrayed in my life until now...and I'm only 19. If you have any questions please email me at anne.marie530@yahoo.com
