"CIG Reality" please whatever you do dont do business with this company. I got taken for a ride and still riding. I was looking to purchase my first business and I was reffered to this company by a friend who was helping me out and finding a company that would help me purchase my business (child care)

So I contacted the company and they told me that I was approved for 150k. So after speaking to the master mind behind this scam (Keith Anthony) he transferred ne over to the financing dept who was asking me for a deposit of 5k down and to get all of paper work that was emailed to me notarized and faxed back in before they would put in a offer for the building and get the ball rolling so I wouldnt loose the property. 

I was very unsure of sending the money after speaking with my bank on wiring money. I informed the so-call financed dept on how I felt and I wasnt gonna go through with the deal. So then MR ANTHONY PODIAS (Keiths do boy) convinced me to go along with the deal by having Keith sign an agreement letter that if for some reason the deal was lost or I didnt want to go through with CIG I would recieve a refund of the money I put down to start the process, and I only had to put down half of the money which was 2,500 instead of the 5k to make me feel comfortable. LONG story short this happened in Sept 2012, promised a refund in Oct. its now Jan.2013 heres your home work DO NOT LET THESE SCAMMERS TAKE YOU FOR A RIDE! I keep calling everyday and I get the same answer from Podias " Im still waiting on your files to come cross my desk" and super storm Sandy misplaced us ect. ect. He has an excuse for every question. they have an phony account to hide your money in, Mr Anthony has purchased to resturants in Queens with the money they stole from hard working people to live a lavish lifestyle. To read more complaints on this company go to scambook, BBB, FTC ect.  RRRUUUUUUNNNNN

REPORT THEM IMMEDIATELY

AUTHOR: tajellison - (United States of America)

I was advised to direct anyone with the same issue to contact 516-248-3300, that is the NYS ATTORNEY GENERAL. You will need to advise them that you need to report on a Consumer Fraud that already has existing complaints pending by other consumers. They will direct you on what you need to complete and submit to them. GOOD LUCK!!

Wow Same here!

Even though I have my info pending with the Attorney General, I still continue to call to hear what new excuse they have now. I Called on Monday and after being on hold for 15 mins and the phone just hangs up, I called back and Anthony Podias finally got on the phone. NOW all of a sudden after months of going back and forth with him, HE DOESN'T HANDLE THE REFUNDS! ! Then he told me I need to speak with Gus the same Gus that supposingly had my file and still didn't clear it for refund. .now I got Gus on the phone and he is telling me that he doesn't know the status of my file but does know that some people are starting to get back at least half of their refund. Then he told me I have to speak to Anthony to find out why they are only issuing half of refunds to people. All the back and forth crap they do is ridiculous, I knew nothing was goin to be accomplished by my call but I just wanted to make sure I have a record of my calls and their "new" excuse...Trust me, they are not gonna get away with what they are doing...they are trying to make responses on here and on scambook stating that they are trying to take care of the issues and how some old employees messsed them up, just a bunch of bull!! They know their being watched now and have to answer to the law so now they are trying every which way to put blame on someone else! ! They can blame anyone they want but at the end of the day, they are still responsibile for the refunds and EVERYONE knows they are nothing but a bunch of scammers! I want ALL of my money NOT SOME!!! The problem is they thought they were taking from a bunch of idiots because most of ths people dealing with them have bad credit but just because you have bad credit doesn't mean that your stupid!! Now everyone is fighting to get their money and in the end they will get exactly what they deserve.

Same boat

AUTHOR: tajellison - (United States of America)

Hi, I am going through the exact same thing you are but I have gone as far New York Attorney General who is now on the case. I first sent my report to Nassau County District Attorney office in Mineola NY and they said this matter is being handled by the New York Attorney General. I just received my letter from them Monday that they have my file and is working on it. Please email me directly if u need all the contact info, there are plenty people sending all their info to get this company to shut down and stop scamming people..I really wish I would have done some more research prior to sending them my money. Im still waiting since sept 2012 for my refund....email me at (((ROR redacted)))
