Eran Salu Business Leader Media Small claims court


I've had my own studio for almost 15 years and never had to take anyone to court to get paid, but I guess times have changed. I had a great relationship with Business Leader Magazine for the past 7 years, but in 2007 the publications ( Business Leader Magazine,The Park Guide, Triangle Real Estate, Women in the Triangle,Corporate Relocation Guide) were bought out by Eran Salu of Business Leader Media. I had not been paid for the last 2 shoots I did for them

After continued attempts of trying to get paid ( mail,email and certified mail ) I was forced to file a claim in Wake County small claims court. It's not the money it's the PRINCIPAL.

I'll keep you updated as to the out come. This is all new to me, I've never had to go to court before. If your curious about past cases with Business Leader you should go down to the public access terminals at the Wake County courthouse and type in Business Leader and see if you get any hits. That's what I did.

That sucks. I've been fortunate to have good clients in my limited experience. Why do these "big guys" thinks it's OK to stiff everyone else?

I have done business with Eran before with the same out come. His lack of business and personal ethics noted on this web page should be a warning to anyone thinking of getting involved with Eran Salu. He claims to be a honest and ethical business man but will only do what is best for him and will not hesitate to burn others if it will benefit him.

Yeah, That is 100% true, who so ever worked with Eran was caught in debt. He has setup office in India and here also he is doing same thing. He had not paid my 3 month office rent, electricity bill, telephone bills. As he was there in US, I was not able to claim on him. I appreciate you guys spread the message like wind and stop him to do such evil thing.

Eran Salu is scum. He's screwed over so many people and silences them with scare tactics. I'm astonished that he's gotten away with so much. I encourage anyone associated with him to remove him from your life because he doesn't have a sense of decency or compassion. I also encourage the people that have been screwed over by him to speak up. I can name at least 10 off the top of my head but you know who you are.
He's the definition of a crooked businessman and all the puppets that continue to work for him knowing he's so corrupt aren't any better.

I agree with roxorz15 and all burned by Eran should speak up in preventive efforts and keep him from doing business. Getting involved with him, businessleader.com or any other site of his will not only diminish your business reputation but put you at risk of not getting paid for work accomplished just like Bryan and so many others.

Eran Salu and Charles together with their country manager Erwin Damaso should be penalized for operating illegally here in the Philippines. They dont have proper license and permit to the Philippine Government..

Eran Salu is a piece of shit. Check out the new blog I just started on how he ripped off his employees at his prior firm...

Yeah...I think 'scum' is a very mild term for him. He has done the same thing in India. Many of us (employees)did not get paid. He also did not pay the rent for his office. He had a side kick in India "Dylan Lobo" who used to teach him new ways of screw employees and vendors. I have personally lodged a police complain against him. If he comes to India he is a dead duck....one way or another!!!!

He has a Board Member, Robert Efthimos, whom is also involved. Robert may be an equity investor in the business also. He is an attorney at Hogan & Hartson in Los Angeles. Stay away from this guy also.

Robert was a partner with Eran Salu at SG Capital, an M&A advisory firm they both owned. They ripped off their customers and their employees on several occasions.

Hi all! I was an employee of Business Leader Media in the Philippines, and he hasn't been paying us regularly. Lately, he hasn't even paid his employees for 1 month plus in all. Plus, his head employees there, Marc Raymundo and Len dela Cruz, has been spending the employees back pays and salaries to pay the utilities because Eran hasn't been sending money. HE IS SUCH A BAD EMPLOYER. HE OUGHT TO BE SUED AND INDICTED AND IMPRISONED.
