NorVergence, Inc. Complaint

The Pennsylvania Attorney General filed suit against NorVergence, Inc. and Peter J. Salzano in Somerset County Common Pleas Court on Wednesday, December 8, 2004.

The complaint alleges that NorVergence, a Newark, New Jersey company currently in bankruptcy, and Salzano, the company?s president, CEO and chairman, engaged in deceptive sales of landline and cellular phone service and Internet access bundled with equipment that included the company?s ?Matrix? box which was represented as special device that would enable NorVergence to offer their customer a 30% discount on their entire telecommunication packages.

It is alleged that although the ?Matrix? boxes had values ranging from $350 to $1,500, NorVergence had sign rental agreements for the ?Matrix? box in which required them to make total payments of as much as $300,000. The rental agreements were then assigned to finance companies that continue to pursue the customers for payments, despite the fact that all services have been terminated rendering the equipment virtually worthless.
