ED Magedson – Founder
Beenverified.com Ruined client base due to Beenverified.com Internet
This has been a horror story! I operate a tutoring business and recently a potential client used Beenverified.com to do a background check on me. Although the misdeamenor charges were accurate (traffic violations and a worthless check charge 7 years ago) the report then went on to list multiple felony charges (arms possession, cocaine distribution, driving with a forged international license,etc) that never took place. Fortunately, this potential client gave me a copy of the report. However, needless to say until this is resolved satisfactorily, they aren't going to hire me to tutor their children! I contacted these clowns by phone and was told to submit a written request to have the information removed. Outrageously, they also told me "in order to work with them better on this I needed to set up an account with them!" Of course, I refused and threatened legal action. I sent my "request" to them explaining the situation following their template.
I downloaded the pdf.file on the report so I could send it back to them and also give it to my attorney.
I received an email reply, attempting to explain to me that the charges are listed as "likely" and "possible." It was the "possibles" that are all inaccurate and yet defaming as the birthdate was also off by only ONE DAY on these bogus charges. Their statement is that there is a "disclaimer" that their reports "cannot be used for employment screening and that the potential client "Should have realized this and done further research through the Duval County Court System." Unbelievable.
I also explained to them that if you copy and paste the so-called "case numbers" on the bogus charges to the Courthouse Records they will link back to the traffic violation.
I then emailed them again and explained to them that potential clients don't care what the company says and they can use the information however they want. I also explained to them that their reply is like the judge saying to the jury "disregard what you just heard." They already heard it. You can't unring a bell! I have given them 2 business days to remove my information and then I am filing legal action.
Anyone who would like to join me in a class action lawsuit against this disreputable, defaming, libeling organization, please post your own report and I will do another report with the name of the attorney you can contact etc.
I am grateful to the potential client for giving me the report. Most would not have done so.
I have also contacted the Attorney General for the State of Florida.
