Suit Accuses Highlands Ranch Company Of Misleading Recruits

DENVER (AP) – The Colorado attorney general’s office has filed a lawsuit against a Highlands Ranch-based company accused of making misleading statements to recruit people to market its products.

The lawsuit was filed in Denver District Court against Consolidated Medical Services LLC and owner Joseph Benedetto.

The company is accused of charging recruits various fees to sell its medical benefits programs online, then encouraging them to pay hundreds or thousands of dollars for marketing products and services. The lawsuit alleges the company led recruits to believe they could earn more than $89,000 in their first year, but as of July, only 3 percent of the roughly 12,800 people they had recruited had earned any commissions.

No one at the company was immediately available to comment Tuesday.
