Ez 1 rate is a scam company that scams people into signing up for bogus "discount" long distance. They are run by scam artists working out of the university loan services offices in Clearwater, FL. They are owned by Adam Shorr. Their phone number is 800-974-7536 (this is the number for University Loan Services - but they are all run by the same scammers.
There are also several other scam companies that are owned and operated by Mr. Shorr and his band of scammers. The ones I have located are NEVER PAY RETAIL, PICK YOUR GIFTS.ORG, DISCOUNT HEALTH, FIRST USA FINANCIAL, FIRST INET AND MYIFSERVICES. Also - they run University Loan Services - a scam student loan consolidation company that charges you a fee of over $200 to do something that is totally free to do with a reputable company. NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THESE LOSERS. Also - there is a man named Daniel Kusko who answered the phone the first time I called. he is a registered sex offender in Florida.
Here are some emails that were sent from them to me - after they finally agreed to refund my elderly grandmothers account. they had a bogus recording which was not in my grandmothers voice. I later called about another refund from a client I found that had been scammed. When I listened to THAT recording - it was the same voice on the phone from the supposed client. They just use simple digital editing technology. IF THEY REFUNDED ONE CLIENT THE ENTIRE AMOUNT THEY CHARGED - THEY HAVE TO REFUND ALL OF THEM. AND BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY HAD THE "PROOF" - THEY CANNOT SAY THAT THIS CASE WAS SPECIAL. IF THEY HAD THE PROOF - AND MADE THE REFUND THEY MUST REFUND ALL CLIENTS WHO ASK. CALL ALEX AT 800-923-8939 TO GET A FULL REFUND. - (see email string below). When it mentions police involvement - they did call the police after I called their bogus scam university loan services office a bunch of times to get Mr. Scam artist Adam Shorr on the phone - but the police officer said he would be investigating them - and thanked me for my assistance in bringing him to them. He is transferring the case to the Clearwater FL economic crimes division!!! I also called the FBI and they referred me to the Federal Trade Commission and the Secret Service (they handle Identity Theft - and I beleive this bogus student loan consolidation company to be selling customer information to the highest bidder). Why not when you are in every scam you can set up.
