Gibson Trust/Goldstar Financial ripoff, consumer fraud ripoff ,false promises, victimized many consumers Pomano Beach Florida
My first tip-off that the company was trouble was when one of my creditors called and said that they would not accept the terms of the proposal because Gibson Trust was not licensed to practice Credit Counseling in Michigan (which is required in Michigan), and I was a Michigan resident. It wasn't long after I called Gibson to take this creditor off the program (when I told them why--they actually admitted that they didn't have a license to practice in Michigan)that I noticed that the creditors were not showing payments on their bills. When I called Gibson Trust, I was told that the creditors were lying that they showed payment to each creditor every month. As the months went on, I started getting phone calls from the creditors--in many cases they hadn't received payments for three months or more.
At this point, I decided to quit program--when I called to notify Gibson Trust I was harassed and threatened that my credit would be ruined by leaving the program. The person that I talked to kept me on the phone for twenty minutes trying to talk me out of leaving. I was glad that I put stop payment on their ACH debits at the bank because later, I found out from my sister that Gibson had continued to debt her checking account after she discontinue their services.
Both my sister and I filed a report with the Florida Attorney General last year (2002) but I received a letter stating that the Attorney General could not do anything because Gibson Trust claimed that they paid the creditors (and paid them on time). The two of us have not filed a report with the Michigan Attorney General as of yet. Between the two of us, we have been swindled out of about $5000 and we both have bad credit histories as a result of Gibson Trust's actions.
My sister and I are very glad that a lawsuit has been started, and both of us would like to thank those who have posted information about the lawsuit.
