I'm so glad I came across this site, even though it may be too late for me to get a refund I will NOT give up the fight against these scum.
I fell for this scam right after Thanksgiving time of 2002 and I knew it sounded too good to be true (I guess that's why I've been waiting over 4 months now), but I was desperate for money. It's not that I have "bad" credit, it's that I'm in my early 20's and have NO credit. I wanted the money to be able to afford the security deposit on a nice place to live with my girlfriend. (Totally unrelated, I'm hoping to ask her to marry me on this coming Thanksgiving) Like most others that posted here, they took $221.95 from me and it WAS a cold call, they did not give me a number to call back. After spending over $150 on my phone bill calling these people just to have them "pretend to care" and have to date "claimed" to have sent 3 seperate packages and they claimed they up-ed my limit by $100 to help offset my phone bill. After coming across this site 2 days ago I tracked "Lenox Capital", "Freedom Resources" or whatever name they go by this week back to the bank they used to illigally draft those of us that got scammed. The ACH and Routing number point to:
Florida Bank, NA
6301 Benjamin Rd, Ste. 105
Tampa, FL 33634
Phone Number: 813 887 3388
Routing Number: 063113442
I read somewhere on this site that helped explain what to do if it was after the sixty day period, but sadly I can't find that information now, so I may post again later when I can give more helpful information for those of us that were ripped off by this company and their misleading "wastes of flesh" they have for a staff.
