Java max is horrible, from the top level, Marcel, Iraj Fateh and more to bottom line, all they do hurry to get your money, or tie you with their disgusting financial company


with %23.9 interest.Their so called "location providers" are even more disgusting and have no respect for you and do not even bind to their own signature under the location agreement contract.

They go ahead and breach the contract whenever they want without giving a *** about what would happen to us financially, the question is why did you sign the contract then? you are a boss, manager, president, etc. and you pretend that you do not know what contract and its terms mean? It is one of the worst possible company with inexperienced personnel who deliver awful service.

Their administrative staff put you in long hold or do not return your call when you are at the location and need help with the newly bought machine. their training is a rushed one and wrong, such as putting the brewer filter OVER NIGHT in VINEGAR (strong smell),while the Coffee machine has its own cleaning tablet which takes care of routine cleaning of brewer filter.

Who wants to have a coffee which has a tint of vinegar smell!there is many more terrible things to say about Java max.

we as other people want to make extra income to meet all needs.we met these people in a presentation for JAVAMAX in The Westin Prince Hotel in North York where they told all who atteneded the meeting and showing all the benifets you can get from their business within One year "you'll make your money back" but the reality is that after 9 months we got only $480.oo in total sales from 2 machines in the locations they provided for you; eventhough they charged $1500.00 for each location.

we add our voice with your complaints againest this Scamming company.

we should get together to get a solution for our problems.

Scammed by Java max - vending machines

Bought brand new one coffee vending machine AND one pop and snack machine one year ago with location for 25K - both machines are now in my garage.Java Max does not even return phone calls and does not even both to give any customer support and in fact are asking for more money i.e.

$ 1000 to find us another location. All staff working there are not at all supportive and all they want is more money.

I agree with you I got two machines and was promised good locations and what I recieved where location that earned me a whole 20 dollars a week. As I have the machines with a leaseing company they have been reposed and now I waiting to see how much I will have to pay after they are auctioned off. Be warned don't have anything to do with this company :( :cry

Java max Fraud

Hamilton, Ontario 4 comments

Shame on this company for scamming unsuspecting victims!We should call the police and report this company as fraudulent!

Once they have your money they want nothing to do with you. Despite what they say about helping you succeed all they care about is lining their own pockets with your initial purchase of these machines! Someone has to stop them! Now we have two machines - one is in need of repair and i can't get in touch with anyone from java max to service it because they don't respond to phone calls and the other one is sitting in my garage because the location they provided was terrible!

What recourse do we have? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps we can launch a joint lawsuit against these criminals.Please advise.

I am in the same boat as you. They should be stopped and give us our money back and take back their useless coffee machines and their hateful location providers!

Not perhaps, but definitely we should launch a joint lawsuit against Java max who destroys lives.All aspects of their support means nothing and their new technician is not knowledgeable and does not know what he is talking about!

Java Max - Agreed javamax is a scam


I was pressured into buying two coffee machines not one like i wanted but "two is the minimum" marcel and robert said with promises of getting my initial investment back in first year. it is true they are very hard to get ahold of after they get your money the inflated price of these machines is supposed to be because they help u through process but after they get ur money it's over don't return phone calls, $24,000.00 I paid for two coffee machines one of which is in my garage since the location they gave me was garbage it wasn't worth my time to service the machine, once I told them the location they gave me wasn't producing they said that they will provide me another location for $500.00 they are a terrible business not reputable at all the machines break down often despite what their sales pitch will tell u, Marcel and Robert are scammers and should be ashamed of themselves especially Marcel don't believe a word that guy says I feel like in their next presentation I should show up to warn all the unsuspecting potential investors if u really want to get into the vending business or coffee business u can buy machine for less than half price from crane merchandising company look it up!

This company takes your money and does not care if you make a dime back after your investment.They are only interested in your money --they lure you in with false promises --DO NOT GIVE THEM ANY OF YOUR MONEY -THEY ARE SCAMMERS --ALL OF THEM.

You will regret ever speaking to them. They are full of false promises --they will sell you on big financial gains but it won't happen. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY --I HOPE TO SAVE SOMEONE FROM MY FAITH. I will never recover any of this money that I have paid to them.

They are scamming people daily.

Review about: Coffee Vending Machine.



Yes, they are real...BUT THEY ARE THE ULTIMATE RIPOFF WITH THE WORST,IF ANY, BUSINESS PRACTICES!!!They market this as a business opportunity or package but really, as soon as you PURCHASE their horrendously priced machines (at) around $9,000 EACH PLUS TAXES (which sells around $2,000 in Alberta and elsewhere), they won't care in the world with you!

They will charge you with a Location fee for around $1,200 PLUS TAXES and these locations are not even busy and YOU CAN'T CHANGE IT even after just a few weeks when you know it's not working at all! That's how they make their RIPPING OFF investors and exaggerating the numbers like they were factual with basis! My current locations (BOTH) only makes around $150-200 GROSS!!! Average 5 cups per day!

So don't believe it when they tell you all these horiffic numbers!!!Please..NOT ANOTHER VICTIM!!!


Marcel Gilenault is a *** artist behind this scam. I hope he goes to jail. :(

Wow, JavaScam. Luckily i came across your post because me and my family were looking into investing with JavaMax, but after seeing how unprofessional and crooked they handle an investor, no way. That's illegal! and to think companies like them are in business. Taking advantage of innocent people and their hardworking money!

Honestly, i have to inform my friends and relatives about this because it seems like this is the way they are making their money, and selling false promises to unsuspecting people like us.

Good luck and hope you get your money back! Keep us informed about what's going on!

I paid javamax ( 5694 Ambler Dr, mississauga , L4W 2K9 , Ontario) $5,000 for a deposit on a coffee vending machine full value cost being $12,593.85 for machine delivery and installation in January 13th 2012. A sales representative called Robert and his crew organised a seminar which i attended, and gave projections that one machine could make me $600 a month profit, and it had very low overheads . After doing my due diligence from other investors who quit the business or are still struggling, they gave me a rude awakening that $600 was impossible, not even $150 a month per machine, even with a good location. I called them on 20th january, and told them I wasnt interested anymore in the business, and I wanted a refund, since I also had my own financial struggles to deal with.

Since January until today, they have taken me on a wild goose chase, refused to answer my calls, and gone ahead to tell me that Robert their sales representative whom i was dealing with doesnt work with tme any more.!! Therefore they cannot give me back my deposit, yet everything was put down in paper, with the deposit paid via RBC money order to them.

They have been so rude to me, especially one of their representatives called Marcel, telling me that the time they spent talking to me, is even worth more than the $5,000 i paid as deposit, and that i should consider myself lucky that they are still talking to me. is that how investors/clients are treated ?

I AM WARNING EVERYONE WHO WANTS TO BUY COFEE MACHINES OR GET INVOLVED WITH JAVAMAX: Their projections of profits are highly fraudulent, and nothing close to reality. They just use their good looking brochures and fliers to entice and lure unsuspecting investors who have worked for their hard earned money, giving false hopes that you will have a great residual income business with them. As a matter of fact, i met about 3 former javamax vending machine owners who totally lost hope of making their money back, got out of the business, and when they went back to javamax, javamax offered a buyback of the same machines which were still in 10/10 condition, for only $2,000 , something they bought at almost $13,000 .

Therefore anyone who is planning to invest in javamax, think twice..!!

BTW, Robert and Javamax, Give me back my $5,000 ASAP! I never bought the machine, all i paid was a deposit, with agreement that that if i dont pay the remainder by the end of january, i lose the location. JUST THAT! So, I opted out of the business even before this time elapsed, but you guys started taking me round and round, and finally started ignoring my calls..! how "PROFESSIONAL" of you JAVAMAX and "ROBERT" ..!!

There should be a CLASS ACTION against JAVA MAX by all the vendors who basically went through *** dealing with JAVA MAX and get their money back.JAVAMAX should not be in business with all they have done to the vendors and ultimately their families.

JAVAMAX staff are RUDE, IGNORANT and whatever you can imagine.

JAVA MAX is one of the WORST that you can imagine, IRAJ FATEH one of their staff, says; it is my job to get JAVAMAX SALES, I do NOT CARE about the rest, how and at what price to the vendors. All IRAJ FATEH cares about is having KEBOBS all days. . JAVAMAX have NO RESPECT for vendors, which without them their business would NOT EXIST.

What goes around comes around .... say hello to my little friend.. coming soon to a new agency near you!


I attended to Javamax seminar in regards to the vending business opportunity. I was very intrigued with the information presented. I actually was looking in getting involved with a business like this for a few years back. I was qualified to become part of the vendor ownership program.

Before I proceed I did decided that my partner and I should investigate more. We did come across to this site and realized what others had to say about the company; however my partner and I thought that not every business opportunity that swings by is for everyone.

So we decided to take the risk like every other business owner and submit the down payment to start our own business. My partner and I have never been happier to say that we have made the right decision in continuing with the vending business. We have three vending machines; two placed in a private collage and another at a retirement home. Business could not be better then what it is. We are now looking in to expanding our business further.

thanks for this feedback, I attended an info session about the vending business, which honestly I liked it so much.I paid them a down payment of $5000.

later on I found this comments, I asked them for a full refund which they have issued it in a bank cheque within 4 business day.

I am still looking for a vending provider who can replace them as I really liked the idea, and after long trip in the market I'm really confused what to do, JavaMAX looks like professional company not like the others who just heard about the business and started it.


Great update to keep us all posted, hopefully other potential victims will connect them with Javamax, I wish there were ways to protect future seekers from their dreadful scams


They've rebranded as Canadian Vending Distributors (CVDI). The Javamax name obviously got too many bad reviews, so they change to something generic.

We came across their ad and had pretty much the same experience with them.Went to a Saturday seminar followed by a 5 hour speech by Marcel about how satisfied their clients are with their vending machines and how they keep coming back for more.

He insisted that this is such a good investment and that there is a selection criteria as they were only interested in reliable clients for such limited locations they had. He did not give us a chance to decide and he was VERY pushy to close the deal. He said he has a few potential clients and with such limited locations he had to go talk to his manager and review all the files and decide in 10 minutes. So he left the room and came back smelling like cigarette (obviously had had just stepped out for a smoke and there were no potential files to review.

He said we were selected and had to sign the papers. But we refused to do so because we had to think about it especially that $25000 is not a small amount of money for us.

He insisted we get back to him before the end of the day.They kept calling us a few times and we simply said we are not interested anymore.

they did not call me and even when i called them they say we will call u .

i said ok but when i saw these comments i was shocked so i went to mississauga location ambler drive but the place was deserted but luckily they called me since u did not get approved bring a co-signer but i told them i dont want to do this and please give my money back so i could got their new address and went there and got my realy sorry for other victims so im going to put thier new address for everyone its 119 westcreek drive vaughan.on L4L 9N6

It could be worse. I have read how some had invested with Marcel G and Simon H's precious companies ad how they did not get anything at all. Not a machine. Not a business.

Never gave me back my deposit and found out many other never got it, people are taking them to court all the time, and not paying employees as well. when you sign contract read back, your deposit if you change your mind will NOT be refunded Simon Ham Scammer makes money on deposits. Charges $20,000 for two machines plus product,locations etc

KEEP AWAY there are better vending companies around. Simon Ham claims in business for 27 years but he never told you he has starz1, straz group, and others , he changes companies often.

Time to be true Simon Ham scammer, don't take advantage of people with their money.

hey again

It has been a while since i caught up with you. i have been looking for other investment opportunities. did any one find any good vending company that we can invest in ? or does anyone else have any other great investment ideas that we can put our money to ?

please let us know.

BTW jaamax victim, how is your case going on with javamax ? i realy fell in love with javamax machines n strategy, but their business ethics puts me off. Please let us know how your complaint went on.




They claim to have been in the business for 29 years, but if you search for javamax. You can never find information about this company othere than from their under-developed website.There is no way you will see that they are a well-established company at all.


If you do further search online, you will see that they went by different names, changing it all the time due to the many complaints they got: Panama Joe Coffee, Starz1, Canada Vending, Moneta, Semi tech, Iphoto24, etc...And you will also find many complaints against the owners and managers: Simon Ham, MArcel Gerinault, Iraj. It's unbelievable! I hope there is a way to stop these crooks from victimizing more innocent people with their hard-earned money!


I am shocked and suppriced at what am seeing.How long has this been happening.

I am coming down from doing a six months placement and my wife has been telling me about this vending business I just told her about this scam she is in schock too.

The plan was to come home and get started immediately she even has an appointment set for next month where we were planning on paying for a pair.She was more exited than me and was almost paying a deposit of 10,000CND just to show them how seriouse we are.

Ive got to tell my pals about this its unbelivable!!!


Is that right! I thank myself for making a google search before even calling them. A friend told me about Java Max and their business opportunity, and got me very interested in the business venture. I even saw their fliers and he gave me their brochure.

The prices for the machines were abit high from the brochure, but with the low cost of running the machines and high profit margins, I wouldnt mind paying .

But now this! complaints and more complaints? I'd rather invest my money in another residual income highway like ATM machines or maybe open a car wash, I dont know yet. I'm kind of depressed now, reading about how they treated a potential investor . I believe they have no right to stick with your money, if you decided to pull out after paying $5,000 only! $5,000 is not worth them tarnishing their company profile. Unknown to them, it will cost them even more eventually. Anyway, thats my personal opinion.

Thank you Javamax victim though, for the enlightenment. !


What!!!I cant believe this what is this world coming to.

I just attended a seminer and untill I saw this artical all that been on my mind is how great an opportunity this is. They made me feel I was very lucky to be considerd and I was compeletely sold. I wanna express my dipest gratitude to whoever has brought this to light.

Ill sure let my friends know to be wear of rhier money.i am in so much shock I was just about to loose 25,000 CND God bless this day.



Hello Carmen ur very lucky unlike some of us who got carried away with there over exagurated profit mergines and low overhead cost. Please be adviced you will have done urself a big favour if you ventured into investing with another company if not into another Business. But Javamax is a bad idea you would have regreted it coz all they are interested in is your money and northing else.

It is smart of you to have taken your time to do ur reserch before moving on to loosing money that youve worked so hard to obtain. Imagine just loosing it to a bunch of crookes sitting in an office waiting for inocent unsuspecting investors like u and others out there.


so what you are saying is that these guys are a scam and give wrong facts and figures.

I saw their ad the other day when driving, and thought it was a good small niche. but this claim now has made me change my mind :( . I dont want to lose my money!!

I better think of investing in something else other than vending machines i guess. the big question in my mind is "what else" can i invest in, that is legit ! :(

thanks anyways JAVAMAX VICTIM for the red-flag!


Hi!I was also scammed by Javamax with their impossible numbers made by magic - from the unreal low overhead costs, to the potential earning which is far from impossible, when we are now only making $150 a month per location x 2 is a struggle!!!

And they said you will get your #25,000 investment back in a year or less!!! Definitely not true! Not even 6-7 years!!!! And the location they give you, which they charged you $1,200 + HST to start with, DOES NOT MAKE MONEY!!!

Vending locators in the business only charge $500 no tax! And they will make changing locations sound so simple but they will make you pay that $1,200 again and again! That is how they rip you off starting with a machine they charge you almost $10,000 after tax each which you can actually buy for only $2,000 elsewhere!!!

ARE THEY MORE JAVAMAX VICTIM LIKE ME HERE?IS there any way we can file a complain to a government agency to stop them from scamming and taking advantage of vulnerable people who only wants to improve their finances, but instead, push them all the way down in debt?!!!

Hi guys i would like to make a suggestion.Try Gamma Vending they are located in Markham but they offer exceptional sevice and they are extremely affordable.


Oh yes, javamax victim.! I'll stick to my money and look around for any other companies that have good reviews on vending machines. My boyfriend and I havebeen shocked by how javamax has dealt with its clients, and there's no way after reading your experience with them, that we can go into business. No way!

I cannot believe what I would have done if we would have lost $25,000 in a shody investment.

Anyways, keep us updated on how your treatment with them goes, and please inform us if they refunded you your money in full amount or not, so that if they don't , we will spread out the message to everyone online, who is planning to invest with javascam.

thank you.

Hi Arlene first I'd like to tell u that ur very lucky to have done ur reaserch befor parting with any of you money because the truth of the matter is they are a big scam. I would advice u to hold on to ur money and keep searching around for a real investment 25000 buck is a lot of money.As a matter of fact thats what i was looking for but there was no way i could raise that much so they suggested i start with one unit and made me feel like they were doing me a favour.

thanks for ur comment.


Be serious "Javascam" .Wow, you got me scared and I'm immediately going to cancel my plans of purchasing 2 vending machines from them.

see, my boyfriend and I saw their poster last week, and for the whole week we have been plannin' on how we will combine our extra cash to purchase the vending machines as another form of passive income! But if that is how they deal with customers and how they scammed you, I'm sorry but they have lost our trust and business.

Javascam, do you know of any other company that can be trusted and is legit ?Please share with us if you know.

thank you so much for warning us in time.I would have lost over 25k with these guys OMG.
