The Day That NF Communication Closed Its Doors and "Reinvented" Itself as...

"Javelin Marketing"

Every story has to begin somewhere. Ours will start at the end - NF Communications closing its doors. Companies close every day, but how many do you know give their employees only five hours notice? And that's five hours more notice than NF's customers had.

Listen in to this message and then feel free to comment!

Yesterday at noon NF had its monthly pPizza lunch / company meeting. To everyone's "surprise" Larry announced NF would be closed at the end of the day & that in order to receive your final paycheck you had to stay until 5pm and fill out some "paperwork" (the direct deposit for employees stopped a few weeks ago).

While there would be no severance package for laid off employees Larry "promised" them he would send a check for up to one weeks accrued vacation balance by the end of this month.

To everyone's surprise Debra was canned, so if there was ever a "good news/bad news" deal -- this was it.

I can't decide which is more sleazy:

1) Providing employees just a few hours notice they are being laid off just before Christmas, paying no severance package, not paying accrued vacation balances, and offering "his word" that up to one weeks accrued vacation would be sent in the mail before years end.


2) Having the sales staff make sales all day long with the full knowledge no product would ever be shipped & customers would have no recourse as NF Communications would be dissolved by days end.

I'm not a lawyer, but that sure reeks... I can't imagine isn't fraud!
