Complaint Review: Central Florida Financial
Central Florida FinancialP.O. Box 5759 Clearwater, Florida U.S.A.
Central Florida Financial CFFA just found out they are a TRUE SCAM.....GRRRR Clearwater Florida
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: so what is she even complaining about ?
It was horrible to be out $300 that could have been used for our family! So having the card we decided to order something offline to feel we got our moneys worth. having have had to pay an upfront fee we deserved to order $300 worth of merchandise right? WRONG!!!! the website had no prices on it, strange out-of-catergory products...it was a MESS!
The number we were issued for customer service NEVER WORKED!!!! We recieved catalogs in the mail for strange companies....one being "world of products" (which i cannot see central florida financial anywhere on this catalog) and a cheaply made plastic "credit card." The card is palm trees in a sunset.....everyone else get the same one? It contains a SEVENTEEN digit "card number." Well We Packed up and moved from our address and closed the bank account used for transaction between CFFA.
When we recently removed our items from storage 3 weeks ago we found our card and catalogs. I remembered the problem we had last time so I tried to contact them again. I called the 800 on back of the card and was sent to a man answering "customer service" (let me tell you I have called at least 4 times in the past week and the same monotone voice answers "customer service" so weird)
I explained we had a card with them (keep in mind the account is under my boyfriends name, not mine) he asked for name on account....I answered with my boyfriends name and he said oh the _______ ________ aka his name at ______ ______ he gave the address and i said yes thats him. (how could they give my boyfriends info to a complete stranger calling!!!!! i said i need to change that address we moved. He simply asked what my new address was and i gave it to him...
Strangly just 3 days ago we recieved a package with another catalog world of products 2008, a new card with a different number, and 4 more "COUPONS" for 100 dollars each.... how could they send a new card to him when they talked to me...that right there drew a RED FLAG if it was a real card then they just sent a complete stranger a credit card with my boyfriends name CRAZY HUH?
So here i am tonight online looking up their website once again and what do you know ITS NON EXISTENT!!! when just a week ago it was there again (or i wouldnt have called and asked for a new catalog) So I started looking up blogs and forums on the company only to find hundreds of others have been scammed by this company too.....300 dollars is a lot to lose and I wouldnt want to see it happen to anyone else
SO AVOID CALLS, ACCOUNTS YOU GAVE THEM IF YOU HAVNT BEEN CHARGED YET, AND DONT ORDER!!! especially since they ask for 35% of your orders total upfront in MONEY ORDER form and 7% shipping! and they dont have thier own company catalogs....World of Products is their own company online with FREE SHIPPING!!!! i wonder if they know CFFA sends out their catalogs...sorry so long but thanks for reading i hope i saved someone from CFFA
