Letter to the Editor: Did Council Approve A $20K Scam?

If you have a view to share, send it to natalie.davis@patch.com.

Terry Bradshaw is a busy man.

When not working as co-host of Fox NFL Sunday, Terry will soon be seen nationally promoting the township of Parsippany “as a great place to do business and a great place to live,” according to Mayor Barberio.

Aside from  “Today in America,” Terry can also be seen on these programs:


These programs have one thing in common. They are all owned by Paul Douglas Scott and a company called U.S. Media Television, Inc. The Parsippany Town Council recently entered into and approved a $20,000 deal with them.  

A name may just be a name but U.S. Media Television has in the past been called Platinum Media Group, New Line Media Solutions and Encore Media Solutions, just to name a few.  The company and its owners have been sued by the Florida attorney general, former clients who paid $20,000 like Parsippany and broadcaster Greg Gumbel (Terry’s predecessor) for fraud.  

Here is one such settlement: http://myfloridalegal.com/webfiles.nsf/WF/MRAY-76KKPA/$file/PlatinumAVC.pdf

It took me less than 10 minutes to do a cursory search on U.S. Media Television and Mr. Scott.   Parsippany residents should expect its council members to at least do the same before voting on something they don’t know anything about.

I would be interested in hearing a debate. As far as Mr Bradshaw goes - what possibly does Terry have with interesting people or businesses to move to Parsippany. What is his connection - does he even know how to spell Parsippany. I would rather have Ponch from CHIPs. What time were these infomercials going to run? 3am on ION channel. Joking aside I don't see the value proposition and I do see many other sites that refer to you as a scam.

Please check out the updated website of www.parsippanyunite.com A new Fact Check section has been added. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact Parsippany Unite. Change happens by listening and then starting a dialogue with the people who are doing something you don't believe is right. Jane Goodall

What else is new with this town? This mayor was a big mistake because he is taking this town down instead of building it up, he has proven he is not a good leader for this town and has cost us many thousands of dollars in lawsuits as well as waste our tax dollars.

Oh Bob, I so agree with you. I just think the Mayor has his own agenda and is out to make money and is following bad advise from the towns legal council. Thy are both incompetent to lead this town except into the ground.

Besides Terry's promoting Herbalife, another fraud everyone should be aware of is the Amway Tool Scam. Google "Stop The Amway Tool Scam Wordpress" for more information, and forward this information to every non-Distributor/IBO you know, so they don't get ripped off.
