Promised 20 - 50% savings combining phone and internet service with a magic box. Had to sign up for five years. Did not realize contract was for payment to a finance company that had paid off Norvergence, which went bankrupt after 1 1/2 years and left us to pay the finance company for another 3 1/2 years while having no service contracted for. Postings on the Internet indicate the magic box was only worth a few dollars.
Norvergence' owner had, as a consultant, a brother that was forbidden by the state of New Jersey to engage in any communications type business because of prior criminal operations, yet had an office at the same address, according to information on the Internet.
I have involved the Illinois States Attorneys office in this matter and would like to hear from any other companies in Illinois that have been scammed by Norvergence' Illinois office in Oak Brook, Perhaps a Class Action suit is in order. How many others in Illinois have been scammed? Contact the Illinois States Attorney's office in Chicago!
..It is the opinion of Rip-off Report staff that a Class Action will not work in this situation and will only lead victims down a long path of disappointment. In order for an attorney to take on such a case, there needs to be money. NorVergence clearly went belie-UP! / defunked / Bankrupt, which means, there is NO MONEY! Once a bonafide lawyer contacts Rip-off Report with a plan, we will be glad to make arrangements with them to e-mail those of you who filed a Rip-off Report.
