FTLS, Inc Seth Greene Requested and received an up-front fee for a shelf corpporation Los Angeles , California

*Consumer Comment: This company is another Martin Pelmore Ripoff

On or about 12/5/13, I responded to an ad on regarding corporate funding using a shelf corporation.  I received a call back from an individual, Barry Pope, on 12/6/12 who described the program.  Basically, he discussed the program that his firm regarding existing corporations with positive credit history.  They would obtain additional new credit funding of $100,000-$500,000 for that corporation and then sell that corporation to me.  The cost for this service was $3,500.00.  If I needed greater than $500,000 in additional funding, the fee would be higher.  I expressed an interest and Mr. Pope did a conference call with his supervisor, Seth Greene.  Mr. Greene went over the whole program once again with me.  I told both of them that I had a project that needed funding and would forward that information to them for review.

 On 12/6/12, I forwarded via email with all the information on my project.  I received an email in return that they had received the information.  I had another conference call with Barry Pope and Seth Greene who told me of their interest in my project and that Seth had already spoken to a money broker who could commit corporate funding of $250,000-$400,000 for a project like that.  Then, on 12/7/12, Diane Pa forwarded documents to me that she said Seth Greene requested to send.  They included an application form for adding trade lines to a corporation, information sheet on the two corporate funding packages offered by FTLS, Inc., the agreement for the standard corporation with a fee of $3,500.00, and a list of names of existing corporations owned by FTLS, Inc. that were available.

On 12/8/12, I received several emails regarding the FTLS programs.  It was emphasized that the offer that Seth and received from the money broker was only good for that day.  I responded that I did not have the $3,500.00 and could not proceed at this time.  Then I responded that I could send $500.00 at this time if they would alter their agreement to say that the additional $3,000.00 would be taken out of the funding.  They agreed and the agreement was altered andforwarded to Barry Pope along with the $500.00 on 12/9/12.

 On 12/11/12, Diane Pa forwarded the signature card form for signature to be given to the Bank of America for the corporate account.  This was returned on 12/11/12 and, on 12/13/12, Diane Pa confirmed that I was to receive the corporation of Consumer Services, Inc. and that she would forward all the documents pertaining to that corporation that day.  It was at this point, that I could not talk directly with Seth Greene.  Every call that I made to him resulted in a mail box message saying, the mail box holder you have called has not set up a mail box which said that I could not leave any message.  There were several emails sent regarding the documents for the corporation and, on 12/15/12, I received an email from Barry Pope.  He said, The Company Processing Department told me they were sending your Articles Of Incorporation, and Certificate Of Good Standing yesterday!  If you haven't received it, email and, or call them Monday after 9am PST.   I quickly called Barry Pope and discussed this with him.  He was confident that everything would be in my hands by Monday 12/17/12.

I never received any documents from FTLS.  I was never able to talk to anyone from FTLS after the phone call with Barry Pope on 12/15/12.  On 12/22/12, I sent an email quoting the contract stating 100% Money Back Guarantee If Not Satisfied and I was requesting the refund of the $500.00.  No response to this email.

This company is another Martin Pelmore Ripoff

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

There is no Seth. It is really Martin Pelmore again taking money from people. You can call 702-272-4273 this is him and his wife's Ina Agwana company. Do not let them get away with stealing your money. If you paid by USPS money order get a copy. Then when he still denies getting payment the post office will make sure you get your money back.
