This company is located at 1426 gulf to bay blvd suites a & b in clearwtaer, fl and is moving to the suntrust office bldg on cleveland street which is operated by wilder leasing corp. this company is involved in many underhanded business tactics as far as selling consumer information, unauthorized sharing of consumer info and also charging people for a service that they did not use or request. This company is being run by a registered sex offender named Daniel Kusko who's listed with the FDLE and also a possible criminal named Ron Scott and Hebert.

How these are employed by Adam Shorr who owns the company i don't know but they are running a multi-million dollar operation that includes not only this goverment grant, student loan scheme but also a long distance service, phony online catalog credit cards, phony health benefits, they are in cahootz with telemarking rooms in India and the philipines so that the customers can't track down who it is that has called them and debited thier bank accounts, plus they have 20 convicted felons working for them and who're misusing peoples personal information to steal their identity, use this info for personal gain. they also don't have a telemarketing license which is required under FL laws, niether do their telemarketing reps.

they have over 10 1-800 numbers that ring into one office suite A, companies such as ez1rate, myifservices, first USA financial, inet, never pay retail, your discount health, galaxy gadets, new platinum line, my prestige and universal/university loan loan solutions/services and all these front companies misuse consumers info and mislead people and steal their money. They launder this money through various processing companies. This complaint may need to be followed up by a higher goverment agency. How can they be allowed to operate especially by a known sex offender. when you call there they act as if they aren't affiliated but if you notice you can call there and speak with the same rep you spoke with when you though you were calling another company. they need to be investigated and shut down to protect society. they also have mulitple adrresses and company locations such as 2050 russet way, carson city, NV.

Please look into this matter. call their 727-210-0467 number and watch at how they answer the phone "corporate office" but they won't tell you what corporation is it. or call 1 (800) 974-7913 and see how they answer the phone "customer care" but then they will tell you they do customer service for many different companies and won't give you the name for the company you just called or they will say IG Services. what the hell is IG services? they're are all one big scam.

Still up and spreadin to AZ and CA

AUTHOR: Damnitgirlie - (U.S.A.)

I just wanted to let people know this scam was still up and running. I'm in California, and I was contacted by EZ1Rate tonight. They had my name, address, and phone number already and claimed to have a $300 gas voucher for me. The first agent said it was from Walmart, but then varied to say it was from my credit card company, as a thank you for a recent purchase from Walmart (I have made no such purchase.) They claimed they needed my credit card numbers and expiration date to verify my information. I refused, telling them they had already confirmed it by asking me. They passed me through a second and third supervisor who continued to offer the most bogus and ridiculous explanations for why they needed my card number and how safe it was. The final supervisor tried to tell me the numbers on my card were not really my card number but numbers which secretly verified my name and address, and were totally safe to give out. I enjoyed making them work so hard, and never had any intention of giving them my number, despite the agents assurances that he was a very trustworthy guy (like I should just take his word for it). He also assured me I could go to the BBB if there were any problems following my giving him my account number. They wanted me to read my card and expiration number to be recorded and so they could "use it as my personal identification number" so no one else could use my voucher. When I refused he asked if I had a GIFT CARD to any location like Target etc, which had an expiration date. I told him to hold on and pretended to get another card while I looked them up online (I got the name and what might be an address) They claim to be located in Phoenix AZ. When I got back on the phone the guy asked me rather excitedly "you must have a lot of money in your account" I laughed and told him no "what are you so worried about then?" he asked and I told him "I intend to keep the money I have!" I then informed him what his BBB rating was and how ugly his company looks if you Google the name. I told him if they had my property ($300 in voucher form) they should mail it to me. He informed me we would not be bothered by them again (I highly doubt it) I told him even if he wasn't the honest man he pretended to be, I WAS the smart girl they weren't scamming.

I immediately contacted my bank and had EZ1Rate flagged on my account, in case they already had my card number.

I also checked on line and they appear to be associated also with an Arizona operation called IPvoice.com. And while the address I was given was Phoenix, the company is listed as Mesa AZ by the BBB

As a side note, on several different occasions, after using my card at Walmart, I have been contacted by the fraud dept. of my bank to verify my card usage, discovering they have had many reports of identity theft after Walmart purchases. My own experience has always been safe, but now I wonder if that's not where they got all my information.

Either way, no one should ever need your credit card info to confirm anything but a purchase.

#3 UPDATE EX-employee responds

This is Abdul

AUTHOR: Onesimus - (U.S.A.)

I just wanted to reply to this report cause my name was mentioned.

First off if Ez1Rate.com aka Long distance Unlimited is not affilliated with any other company then why is Ron/Ronald Scott who works for University Loan Solutions/Services as the "C.O.O." (lol) representing ez1rate in a federal proceeding? How can someone who works for another company represent your company if they don't work for you or you have nothing to do with them or their company?

I guess Alex isn't telling the world the truth now is he?And yes i am a convict but hey Ron man why don't you come out the closet? What's with that adam4adam web page you have listed under the screen name swagger_1? Is Sonita your gay or girlie name or something? And revolutionary doesn't mean anti goverment. That just shows your lack of intelligence. Try looking it up in the dictionary.

One more thing; if Adam shorr is a partner in ez1rate.com and also owns other companies then that means that ez1rate.com is also affiliated with those companies either directly or indirectly as Adam J. Shorr is a representative of all he is affiliated with or co-owns, owns or incests in.

#4 UPDATE EX-employee responds

unfounded statements from a disgruntled employee

AUTHOR: Sonita - (U.S.A.)

I feel it is my obligation to respond to what I know is unfounded statements from a disgruntled employee, Abdul, who was terminated from the company for gross negligence. He did not do a simple job he was asked to do. I know they have evidence from the server where he was ignorant enough to e-mail from.

This hypocrite is atually a felon himself, who has a terrible track record of lying. This guy himself has many problems with the law and actually has a site where he calls himself "The revolutionary", which means anti-government. He has been overheard many times making negative remarks about the government, which gives us more opportunity than any other country in the world.

This is scary!!!!! And someone with this kind of track record should not post lies about others, but they obviously do or they would not be in the position they are currently in.

It is sad when someone is so unhappy with their life that they waste time by lying about other people and companies because they are vindictive, especially when they can't hold a job themselves.
