I was contacted by Franchise Compliance to do a mystery shop audit of Short Stop CHEM DRY in Clinton Twp Michigan. I was to get $125 for doing this shop plus postage for the solution I had to send in. I had my carpets cleaned by Short Stop Chem Dry by Cheryl Pittiglio (owner). I was not happy with the work as the stains were not removed and the carpet was not cleaned to my satisfaction. I took the sample that I had to get and revealed myself as a shopper per the instructions. I mailed out the sample and got a rating for doing the shop. I have not gotten paid even after numerous emails to Kami Olsen at firstname.lastname@example.org
, Julie Bishop at email@example.com
, Adam Valdez at
. I have not received any response in the last month from anyone except Julie who said she is trying to get my shop paid. Adam has not returned any emails or phone calls. I also contacted CHEM DRY at 1 800-chemdry *1106 and *1104. Big deal! They said they paid Adam Valdez and have nothing to do with this. That is bull crappy! They continue to use this franchise and we are not getting paid. They are as much at fault as Adam Valdez! This is all fraud done over the Internet. Try calling Kami Hales at Chem Dry *1042 and she will tell you to take it up with Franchise Compliance which now goes by Franchise Services. They are still using them! Try calling Adam Valdez at 435-757-5071 and all you get is a recording which he does not return the messages. SO MY ADVISE IS DO NOT USE FRANCHISE COMPLIANCE OR CHEM DRY! If you are in Michigan do not use SHORT STOP CHEM DRY for your carpet cleaning.
Also look at all the other ripoff reports on Franchise compliance. How can they get away with thousands of dollars in fees that they have not paid. Can I report this to the IRS? Any other suggestions?
