American Handicapped and Disabled Workers is a scam.  There are offices in Michigan, California, and Arizona.  They act like a charity -- and they're not -- then try to bully you into paying them off with threats of collections, legal action, and fraud investigations.  They are currently under investigation by the FTC and several state AGs.  If they contact you, notify your state's AG immediately.  They have been prohibited from contacting residents of Ohio and had to refund their money.

Owner:  Adli Najib Dasqui
Manager:  Roscoe Wright

It is BS! I used to work there for a short time. They have been sued in Iowa and MA fir false accusations fraud, etc.. I worked at the Dearborn office. When I first started they asked for me to read from a script. But as I paid attention to my co-workers whom had been with the organization for many years, they were flat out saying that they were handicapped and weren't. They would use sob story pitches. There are handicap employees, but these 2 weren't. The manager tells you in order for you too keep your job, you have to sell so much a day. Misty of the people working there are handicap, ex cons,etc.. people who have a hard time with employment m so they'll do whatever to keep working. So, the manager may not tell you to lie, but that's what's expected. Plus, they monitored calls. Eventually googled the name and kind of complaints were revealed.

HDWA, or A.H.D.W. selling towels.  Said they hadn't called me in 3 yrs.  I had, over that time, according to them, sent $140.  Some familiar talk about military, holidays, etc.  Some mention of a free flag.  Sociable fellow hangs up and woman calls back.  Not a donation.  Sale for handicapped she says.  $40 for a towel.  Man previously indicated that many give $600 or $700.  Number is (586) 754-4429.  Hdwa located in Center Line, MI.  "Now hiring" on window.  Sounds like BS.  Beware.

I  have been harassed about lightbulbs since the summer!  I thought I was going to recieve info on donating money to the AHDW but instead recieved not 1 but 2 sets of lightbulbs w/a bill for about $100.00. I tried to send them back and in fact have not even opened the second box or used any of them.  We are still being hounded but I have no intention of paying this bill for a scam.  Also, the people who call are very rude, unprofessional and  work from the same script as if this hasnt been going on for months.

So glad I saw this as I just got a call from this company saying I was going to be turned into collections for something purchased in dec of 2010. Pretty sure I did not order anything as I got wise to them several years ago.  Guess I will  just ignore.  Caller ID said private.

I just had the samething happen to me, supposedly something I ordered two years ago and I got into an argument with the gal and she was going to send it out to collections.  I hadn't ordered anything from them in years and had some very rude callers when I told them I didn't want to order anything and even told them to not call me anymore.  There has to be something that can be done to them.  This has to be some kind of scam.

LOL.  I just got a ca;ll from this organization...the number was blocked, but I know this is who it was.  The man identified the organization & as I always do with telemarketers I politely let him know that I was not interested in making a donation.  He got irate & said they do not accept donations, they work for a living by selling products.  I said, "Well, I do not want to buy anything, then."  I still can't believe his reply (HA!):  He said, "Well do you want to go wipe your a$$?  Why don't you go wipe your a$$, then"  and he hung up on me.

At first I was angry that someone so profane had invaded my space...and then a little guilty that I had unintentionally offended a handicapped person who was just trying to make some money...but then I realized that a person with that sense of entitlement to call me even though I am on the "do not call list"  is not the type of person I want to give any money to.  I hope this means they won't be calling back.

I have received calls from both AHDW and DHWA, acronym very similar.  DHWA called me several days ago and informed me that we did not pay for some garbage bags from 2009. They want payment and late fees/interest. Told them it won't happen.
Today I received a call from AHDW and asked to buy bags for $90. I informed the caller that I'm being sued by them for non-payment. Hung up. Numbers I have are 248-292-0871 and 248-292-0862. Very shady operations. Will notify the FCC of these people. Anyone can lodge a complaint on line.

received call from 562-866-0222 about 2 year old bill that "I did not pay" for trash bags I ordered. I told them I paid for the trash bags (the price was like $76 or some such). Checked up on comapny could not find any information. figure it was a scam. have received several calls since always from a "diasbled vet" have not bought anything since 2009. after query the person a bit, she siad she would void out bill. Seems to mbe same bunch with a new number. According to internet search the number is in california and belongs to a man that has what appears to be an aprtment address.

They claim to be calling on behalf of handicapped and disabled workers. Well, I am handicapped and disabled and getting to the phone is a bear. I don't have any money for them and their shabby trash bags - yes, before I retired I fell for the scam. Now I want them to stop calling me several times a day.

This company has been calling my elderly mother for 10 years.  She has been buying such things as garbage bags and other household items for an ungodly amount of money.  When I started to question the legitimacy of their company, they became pretty hostile and defensive.  They definitely do not want to give out any names.  When I asked to speak with a manager or someone in charge, I was referred to a phone number for some industrial company.  The lady at this industrial company laughed and said she gets calls for this handicapped organization all the time. I too want to report them to the BBB but have no idea where they are or really anything much about them.  All I know is nothing about them feels right.

Whoever is calling me has tried to call several times this morning (5/24/08).  I don't know what AHDW stands for.  The caller does not leave a voice mail message.  It's starting to get annoying.

I get at least one call EVERY day. We have asked to be removed from the calling list. As soon as I mention that I do not want to be on the list, I get hung up on. From what I can tell from the zip code they are based in Michigan. I am determined to find out the city so I can call the Better Business Bureau and file a complaint. Next time they call I will record the conversation and let them know that right off the bat.

I worked for that organization for about two to three weeks, then quite, because there a scam. There was only one person who worked for them that is truly disabled and needed assistance to even perform the calls. The organization is located at 138 N. Saginaw in Pontiac, Michigan 48342. At one time they were hiring people who were in the work release program for the oakland county jail, and the manager at the time was having the workers sent back to jail and them cashing their checks fraudulently. He was arrested over this, and is no longer working for the company.

I have received the same calls from a different number actually, AHDW 248-292-0857, sometimes 4-5 times in a day. We chose to make a donation and received light bulbs made by blind workers- some were broken when they arrived and quit working after a month or so. These lightbulbs were expensive, and we thought that by donating, the calls would stop, we also requested to be taken off the list and the caller hung up on my husband.

I am not sure what their policy is, but I am now receiving the same type of calls from a breast cancer society charity that has also hung up rudely when asked to be taken off the list. In this economy, many people simply cannot afford to be donating and will choose not to do it all if these businesses operate this way. I have requested a report from the BBB on the AHDW and no longer answer the phone when I see their number.

Has anyone tried to send the goods back that they send you, and if so, did it work?  I saw a comment on another website that they threatened to contact a collection agency.  

We were called by them today for the third time - made the mistake of donating the first time.

These people sent us lightbulbs in the mail, with a bill for $100.00.  We have also recieved a "collection notice" in the mail for that amount.  We recieve at least 3 calls a day.  Each call from them that I answer, I tell them, they will not be recieving ANY money from us, and to take us off the call list.  They proceed to say they will call back, and hang up on me.  Complete scam.

We, too, have been getting calls from AHDW.  We were sent two boxes of lightbulbs, all of which were broken.  I'm assuming because we did donate to them last year for the cheapest American flag ever made.  We then recieved a red collection postcard for $100 for those lightbulbs, which we are absolutely not about to pay.  I called the number on the postcard and left a message stating we would not be paying for broken lightbulbs, let alone $100 for them.  They keep calling us, 3-4 times a day, my husband has asked numerous times to be taken off the list.  But yet they still hound us.

The number they call us from is (586) 486-2599

These people from AHDW will trick you to believe you are donating money.  Then they insist on sending you some free stuff to thank you.  But once you receive that stuff, they will send you a bill asking for payment.  This is a big scam.  If you receive such call or encounter such thing, call your state attorneys office to complain.

I had sick children and this number, (248-292-0857) started calling my home at 8 a.m.  After several phone calls, I asked that they not call again due to the phone waking and disturbing my sick children.  The male who was calling began yelling and cursing me stating that if I would answer my phone it wouldn't continue ringing.  He then hung up.  I called the number back and a female answered, who was just as rude and also hung up on me.

My husband made the mistake of purchasing unusable light bulbs from this number years ago on the pretense it was the American Disadvantaged Workers.  He paid an enormous cost for the bulbs.  I will contact the State Attorney's office to file a complaint and any other place that I can find that will accept a complaint.

I am a person with a mission.
