UBCOA, Peter DePalma (same thing), are the biggest internet scammers I've run across ever. He will paint you a rosy picture about how much his "company" is going to help you and how it won't cost you anything and it won't, not for at least 2 days anyway. Then your checking account will start being debited on a regular basis and you have nothing to show for it. All just a bunch of lies. You can't get him on the phone. He won't return your emails messages or phone messages and his "Corporate Office" is closed because there is no such thing. He is a company of 1 and that is because of what this person just wrote that I read on here about being ripped off also. What a scam artist. DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH PETER DEPALMA, UBCOA OR HIS OTHER COMPANY THAT HE WORKS WITH WHICH IS MBF LEASING. Run for your life. They are the lowest of the low to lie and take money from people who are just trying to take care of their families. I have already filed complaints with the BBB and next I'm contacting every Attorney General that I can think of.

I Know Peter DePalma is a Lier

AUTHOR: Your Busted - (United States of America)

How I know this is because he was living with me and his office was in my home from Jan 2009 to July 2009. He was wanting me to work for him at this company and doing phone set ups for him. Well he would advertise on Craigslist and he did get one guy to work cfor him that I do know of. For him getting paid can't say, But he lived with me and we had a contract a written contract that he owes me 1400.00 for rent for him staying there. Now he did give me cash when he could, but knowing when he got it that was a different story.  Well for companies that he would go through well he went through many that is why I never got my rent cause he would change processor companies. When he wasn't working he was playing on the computer on Tagged or Myyearbook or fighting with his ex about their son.  My family looked Pete up on here and this is what was coming up.  But I was giving him the benefit of the doubt. Well when my house burnt down I was trying to get ahold of him to see when he was going to start paying his money that he owed. He wouldn't get ahold of me. When I finally did he would tell me I was harassing him and that I was a spoiled money hungry person. Well no, I was just needing the money cause I lost everything and I was hurting. But he didn't care. Still till this day he has not made the effort to get ahold of me to pay anything back. I still have that contract and I would like to know where in OK he is, so I can take some kind of action.  I took in a so called friend that needed my help and he turned out to be a lier, scam, and a user. This is not slander this is fact and my family will back this up.  You can't trust anyone

#2 UPDATE Employee


AUTHOR: Ubcoa - (U.S.A.)

Electronically Trnsmitted. I honestly dont remember how the documents were sent to you , either by email or by fax, either way...you recieved them and had full opportunity to fully read them. You claim you were pressured and they were sent late night. Like most people...I work during daytime hours and only do evenings by appt. In a addition a couple of days went by before you returned your forms so to enter this site and blatantly lie in regards to a decision that you made on your own is reprehensible. You want to pass the blame on to others while not accepting any responsibility for your own actions.

You recieved two sets of forms. One had our Logo on top and the other had MBF's. Bot Sets of Forms required seperate sets of signatures and initials. MBF even called you seperately to go over the terms of their agreement with you and did a "VERBAL VERIFICATION" with you over the phone. How can you expect ANYONE to believe you didnt realize who was debiting your account? Even your Bank Statement itemizes who deducts from your Account! At no point do any of those deductions say UBCOA because we dont and never have deducted from anyones bank account. You know this full well and are simply making very lame excuses and false allegations to try to get what you want.

As for Harrassment? How does making posts online misinforming people as to my sexual orientation qualify as "warning"? That was flat out "Harrassment" by any other name.

As for your phone calls? 43 Calls on a Sunday when you knew we would be closed? lol We have the phone records and so does your local police dept...even they considered that harrassment.

Maybe next time you desire to start a business you will approach it realistically and with the understanding that you are actually going to have to do some work! Thats why many people work at it and make money at it...and people like yourself that do nothing make exactly that...nothing.

Now the REAL facts:

AUTHOR: Georgia - (U.S.A.)

Sorry that I missed your rebuttal from a few weeks ago. If I had realized how much you missed me, I surely would have made time for you to enrich your sorry life. I thought that you had crawled back under your rock until a friend that was also scammed by you emailed me laughing her butt off. Now, to address your claims: I tried for a month to get in touch with you or someone at your company and was unsuccessful at all attempts to call you, your company, email you or your company so you couldn't have made things right by "working with me" because I couldn't get in touch with you because you hurt your back AGAIN and you were unable to answer your phone until I started warning people about you. Then you made a miraculous recovery. I should charge you for that. "Upfront Expenses paid by UBCOA" on your website. Explain what this means. Does it mean that your checking account will be charged the next day? Just wondering.

If I had stalked you, you would have seen my SUV in your driveway. Harressed? I prefer to call it "warn" other senior citizens. Slandered, that would be about the same thing. AND you never informed me of anything, Petey.

I knowingly entered into an agreement because I am way too trusting and niave, as most older people are because of the way that we grew up. You told me things that were absolutely untrue. My fault for believeing you but I'm doing my part not to let this happen to another senior citizen. You emailed me the agreement very late one night, told me that you could just tell me what it said and that you had to have it back and signed before the night was over. I take responsibility for being old and stupid. You lied when you said that you faxed me anything. I don't have a fax machine. And if you ran off the only person that would ever work for you because you refused to pay him for his work, why would anyone ever think that another soul worked for you other than you, especially since your voice is on all of the recordings. (That isn't smart, Petey, but that is a free tip.) AND the only person that I sent my bank account information to was YOU. So I guess that does in fact leave you responsible. And you know what, Petey? If I had worked for you and never got paid, I'd be much more than just a disgruntled employee. And that person didn't attempt to remove his posting, in fact, he added to it.

Now, you go and leave innocent people alone and get back under your rock with the rest of the slim and don't bother me again.

The Facts...

AUTHOR: Ubcoa - (U.S.A.)

First, What this poster hasn't disclosed is that we have repeatedly offered to work with her and she has refused any and all offers. She has stalked, harassed, slandered us online on a variety of sites. It all did not stop until we informed her that we would proceed with Criminal Prosecution for her actions.

Secondly, no one ripped her off. She knowingly entered into an agreement which she had fully read and signed off on. It was done via fax so she cannot claim she was coerced or otherwise forced. Her facts are completely askew as we definately have more than one person working here, we are not a part of nor do we own nor are we in any way affiliated with MBF leasing. They are a separate company and they are the ones that deducted funds from her account in accordance with her agreement...that she signed off on. She has repeatedly accused us of stealing her money yet we dont even have access to her account. We cant put back what we didnt take.

Had the poster bothered to read the one other post about us on this site she might have noticed that it was a disgruntled employee who posted it. That hardly compliments her 1 person company theory. In fact that poster attempted to remove his posting but Rip Off Report would not let him. Everyone who posts on here has to check the box next to the following disclaimer : "Submit your Ripoff Report By posting this report/rebuttal, I attest this report is valid. I am giving Ripoff Report irrevocable rights to post it on this web site. I acknowledge that once I post my report, it will not be removed, even at my request. Of course, I can always update my report to reflect new developments by clicking on UPDATE. Further, I agree that by posting this report/rebuttal that the State of Arizona has exclusive jurisdiction over any disputes arising out of this posting."

We are still willing to abide by the agreement but the poster has unrealistic expectations that we do not have the authority to grant.
