Safeguard Properties Thieves - guilty of wire fraud, illegal tactics, bid slashing, fraudulent chargebacks Valley View Ohio
My advice to anyone thinking about working for this property maintenance company is DO NOT! If you are approached by anyone from this company, turn and run the other way. We are a small business relying on clients that are dependable and devoted to their contractors. This company has no morals, and no ethics. They send work that is already late from other vendors, and then charge you back when it is not done within 3 days. They do not pay for trips to bid, but send only orders that specifically request a bid only, and then they refuse to pay for it when you send the invoice. They constantly slash our bids in half, and then charge us 25% of any amount we bill.
They cut your invoice after the work has already been done per bid approval, claiming that the approved amount was unreasonable, so they adjust the charges to what they want them to be after the fact. Since we began working for them a year ago, they have essentially drained our business account to almost zero, where at this time last year, we were a flourishing small business. I'm sure they are doing this to everyone. They constantly keep our order queue full with late work from other vendors, so that you have to focus your attention on that, and meanwhile your regular orders become late and they charge you back the second the due date passes.
We are bombarded with emails stating that we are being charged for work that we never even received. They fail to send notification of new work, and then expect you to root around in their outdated system to sort out new orders. They are totally unprofessional, unfair, and they are robbing the government blind right under their noses. Do not work for this company! They need to be put in their place once and for all, and if anyone ever decides to put them there, I want to be present to watch them go down the way they have brought so many other small businesses down. I absolutely hate them, and I am discontinuing service to them as soon as I am able to recover from the mess they have put me in.
