Legal Credit USA, Inc - Greg Grookett Gregory Grookett Credit Repair Scam Philadelphia Pennsylvania
On February 7, 2014 I met with Greg at his Center City office inside of a Law Office. We discussed my credit report and several inaccurate items that needed to be fixed as well as several accounts I wished to settle after losing my business several years back. I was starting the home buying process and needed to get a handle on my credit score again after it was trashed in the downturn. Greg showed me evidence of successful negotiations and removals of bad information in other peoples credit reports and assured me he would be able to fix my problems and settle the old accounts. He handed me a contract and stated his services would cost $1250. He advised me that once he received my check, he would be ordering my credit reports directly from the credit bureaus which would take approximately 30 days. I felt good about this decision and had confidence he could help me. I mailed him a check once I returned to my office and we agreed to start the contract the following Friday, February 14, 2014.
The following week Greg requested copies of my ID and Social Security card to verify my identity with the Credit Bureaus. I sent him all of the necessary documents he requested and he assured me the reports were being ordered. I waited several weeks before checking in with Greg advising him I still hadn't received any reports and asked if while we were waiting he could start settling the accounts we knew had to be done anyway. He told me to keep waiting and he wanted the reports first. At this point close to 60-days had passed and I still hadn't gotten anything from anyone. I called Greg several times, leaving voice mail after voice mail yet all went unanswered. I followed up each voice mail with an email all of which went unanswered. For over a month, I tried texting, calling, and emailing until finally he answered the phone (called from another number) and we had it out. He told me my file was "difficult" and that he wasn't sure why the credit bureaus didn't send my files as requested. We went back and forth and he told me he needed me in the office again to sign additional documents. I told him I was unavailable to come to his office so just email them to me. He emailed me several Power of Attorney letters to work on different accounts none of which we originally discussed. I emailed him back asking why he needed these and to find out why he was working on accounts that we never talked about (accounts in good standing) which went unanswered as usual. I have called, emailed, and texted over and over and I can't get a response from Greg Grookett.
I am out $1250, 5 months of wasted time, and no closer to a resolution. He is running a credit scam and should be prosecuted. his website claims he is a MyFoxPhilly Winner and Best of Angies List. I can't find anything to back that up. If it's true, than his actions are worse and Fox and Angie's List should go after him. Also, He claims to be a member of the National Association of Credit Services Organizations as wel as the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce...neither of which I can confirm.
