Do not put deposit down with this company!  They present themselves as a Dollar Store opening services  however they are a middlemen who DO NOT offer merchise nor the tangible advice they claim. Some people may have had good experiences with this company but mines have been the polar opposite.  My first dealings with them was through the website www.libertydollarstore.com which you fill out a form which they ask if you need financial assistance and leave comments.  After signing up, I was quickly contacted by Dan  Kostecky.  Explained to him I was a recent graduate and had been working a entry level so and recently moved in with my parents in order to cut costs and prepare to open my own business.  He was also told that I would need a loan to which he replied my son Paul handles this after we received your "deposit".  After receiving their package in the mail which was overnighted to me I read through and was warry but since they had a A+ rating with the BBB decided against my better judgement to give them a try.  After sending in my deposit which was promptly processed everything went downhill.  After the deposit is given you have 3 days to cancel however you dont received any other documentation for two weeks in which Paul Kostecky claims he was working on a "business plan".  This is clear a stall tactic that they use to keep your deposit.  After receiving the "business proposal" which Paul claimed it took two weeks to process I was competely unimpressed.  Upon speaking with him I immediately call and was told that 31 years of experience they were told they had some of the best plans in the industry.  After attempting the get loans myself it became clear that I was not only swindled out of $2900 being that Dan Kostecky knew originally that with a lack of collateral there wasn't a chance of getting a loan in the amount they want which was $18,000 more the originally told by the company that I would need.  After asking Paul where was the financial assistance in securing a loan which is clearly listed on their website, his only replies were, "lets put our heads together and see what we come up with."  Does this sound like a man with 31 years of experience or a conman, I'll let you be the judge.  After continued calling I noticed Paul begain avoiding my calls and when I was able to reach him was told that we should communiate via email because he was so busy.  After this it bacame clear the deposit is how they make their money and Paul even gave me the number to SeedCapital, a company that charges $5000.00 to attempt to secure a loan.  After this I told Paul I was finished with them and wanted a refund and he refused claiming they had satisfied their end.  At this point I do not own a dollar store but I have a "word document" they claimed is a proffestionaly typed business plan.  If this is a company you feel comfortable doing business with risk your money maybe you will have a better experience than I did but if not I would advise you to stay away and if you want to open a dollar store go with company that does not charge a fee until your store is open or in the process of being open.  Companies like libertydollar prey on people trying to better themselves do yourself a favor and dont fall for the sales pitch dont sign any of their documents without first going to an attorney.  Funny how the criminals are ripping citizens off and there seem to be little recourse for hard working people.

#1 REBUTTAL Individual responds

Impersonated Rebuttal

AUTHOR: Paul - (United States of America)

Even though I do not agree with this report, I do appreciate the opinion of this client and the ability for consumers to express their opinions, however, what I do not like about this site, in particular, is that anyone can write a report, and fake a rebuttal as what happened in this case.  The rebuttal that is on this report dated December 22, 2010 was not posted by me and is the first I have seen it as of today's date.  I realize it doesn't matter if it were me, or not, it can still never be taken off.  I do want this rebuttal, dated February 7, 2012,  to remain as confirmation that the previous rebuttal was a fake and also encourage Rip Off Report.com to come up with a way to affirm where these reports come from.  Paul A. Kostecky
