All about Patrick Mendes’ controversial security post
In 90 Day Fiancé, Patrick Mendes spoiled his partner Thais Ramone with a lavish lifestyle, but the way he makes money raises eyebrows.
On 90 day fiance, Patrick Mendes showed off a rich lifestyle this left many fans curious as to how he makes so much money. Patrick flexes his Rolex watch and Tesla car, and said he spent $10,000 on beauty treatments and shopping sprees from his partner Thaís Ramone in his first few weeks in the United States. While Patrick and Thaís have defended his work ethic, many franchise fans have come across what appears to be shady information about the company Patrick works for.
Patrick said the 90DF that he works in the home security systems business. Thaís was asked by a fan to share details about his work on Instagram this week, although his response unfortunately sparked more speculation about exactly what Patrick does for a living. Thaís shared a post explaining how hard Patrick works, in response to a fan asking if he worked in an MLM (multi-level-marketing) program. Although Thaís is unfamiliar with the term, many franchise fans are concerned that Patrick’s business has some sort of pyramid structure, which sees employees drive sales by bringing new people into the business. With MLMs, this is usually done to push products that benefit people at the top of the chain, and fans think Patrick is high up in the organization.
Patrick is listed as a recruiter for Vivint, Inc. Vivint is described as a professional smart home security system installation company. As a recruiter for Vivint, it seems like 90 day fiance Newcomer Patrick’s job is to get more people to join the security installation team. He is listed as available to help people who would like to work for the company. Interested Vivint customers should schedule telephone consultations prior to customizing and installing security systems. However several 90 day fiance fans remain suspicious that Patrick’s business is in fact fraudulent. Vivint was originally called APX Alarm Security Solutions, Inc. The company is not accredited by the Better Business Bureau. The Trusted Business Review website lists the company as having a D- score and an average customer rating of 1.08 stars out of 5.
It seems that many customers have had problems with the company which 90DF Patrick works for the star. Over the past three years, customers have filed 5,045 complaints, of which 1,895 have been closed in the past year. Many reviews of the company claim that terrible or non-existent customer service is one of the main drawbacks of Vivint. Several commenters shared that canceling accounts isn’t easy, while there have also been contract issues. Many customers have accused Vivint reps of only caring about money, which allegedly led them “scam” clients. “It’s a scam of a company and they are horrible. To run!!!!!!,” a customer review on the Better Business Bureau the website reads. Overall, many reviewers urged potential customers to steer clear of the company.
While Thaís has defended Patrick and his work ethic, it seems there is a lot of shady information out there about the company he works for. Despite the embarrassing reviews, Patrick has bragged about his job and shown off the luxurious lifestyle he is able to live on the earnings from the business. Meanwhile, Thaís also enjoys reaping the fruits of Patrick’s labor, as she is used to a glamorous lifestyle and was not legally allowed to work in the United States when 90 day fiance season 9 has been filmed. Patrick has yet to respond to fan allegations questioning his company’s ethics.
