We contacted Mark Fuller at Microformulation Cosmetic Consulting in Summerville ,SC back in Jan.2020 after visiting his website t orreformulate our therapy lotion for cancer patients On Feb.4,2020 we wired him $2,500 per the agreement. We never received the samples of the reformulated therapy lotion.He has yet to return a phone call or answer an email . Please see the following from a former co-worker of his:
I am a former coworker of Mark and heard about all the lies he is telling and wanted to set the record straight. Like everything about Mark his bio he presents on Facebook and Linkedin is completely fictitious. A pack of lies. He is a desperate man hanging by a thin thread. The has an extensive criminal history that includes suits for assault and requests for restraining orders.
Lets begin in the beginning. Lie #1: He did not graduate From Albany College of Pharmacy. He may have attended but no degree. Lie #2 He did not work for Charlers River Labs. He worked for a temp agency that had a job with Charles River. He was an hourly temp employee. His job? Squeezing blood out of horseshoe crabs! Really technical lab work there! After that job ended after 6 months he was unemployed for over a year. No one would hire him because of his background. What was he doing before Charles River? Serving time in Federal prison for among other things, credit card theft.
Lie #3 He was not a Formualtion Chemist at Scienceuticals. Eventually he was hired as an hourly lab assistant at Scienceuticals which basically means he cleaned beakers and put away paperwork that the chemists worked on. True they did try to move him up to creating products but he was a disaster and anything he tried to create was either unstable or disgusting. Once they realized he was incompetent in the lab they put him out on the production floor with the other hourly temp workers in a hair net. His job? Screwing caps on bottles and packing boxes. He was worthless working on the production floor as well so he was fired. One of the many reasons he was fired? Credit Card theft.
Lie #4 From there he tried to set up another company with information and formulas he stole from Scienceuticals, Alluralb, with his ‘friend’ Mark Richards of the Richards Group LLC. He says his title was Technical Director but he could have made up anything. It was him and his friend working out of their apartments. They tried moving into a dumpy garage that wasn’t fit to park my car. Then they moved again once everyone found out they were trying to operate out of a dump. They closed up shop 6 months after starting. They never produced 1 product for anyone! Why did they close? Because once his partner found out the truth about Mark Fuller, that yes he was being sued by Scienceuticals, that yes he was a Federal criminal, that yes he stole information from Scienceuticals that they were using to start Alluralab, that yes Mark made promises he couldn’t keep, he ran from Mark as quick as he could.
Lie#5 So then Mark starts Microformulations. He preys on unsuspecting novices in the business who don’t know any better. He specifically states "small prototype Cosmetic lines and . . . these smaller companies new to the Personal Care Industry". The expression if you can’t dazzle them with brilliance baffle them with BS applies here. Classic con man strategy. Focus on the new guy, the unsuspecting, who doesn’t know any better. The diarrhea that comes from his mouth is hilarious. Any existing co. or legitimate product line would never use him beacuse he has no value to them. They realize the fraud he is. He is no chemist by any stretch of the imagination. He has no lab. He works out of his dark dingy apartment. He is not FDA registered or have had any cosmetic chemistry training or education. He works with stolen information that is part of a lawsuit. (Dorchester County Civil Case # 006805) He is not legally licensed to operate as a business in SC. He is not a legal entity such as an LLC or Corp ( you are taking a big risk here working with someone who is not a legally bound – check: http://www.scsos.com/Business_Filings/Search_Business_Filings ) To summarize Mark Fuller wouldn’t know the truth if it hit him in his face. He is a bottom feeder and a sloppy one at that sloppy in his appearance, thinking and methods. All of this information is verifiable. Email me if you want to know more. Here is extensive court docket:
