Tom MacKenzie + his daughter Michalea Barrett Tom MacKenzie and Michalea Barrett ruined my life Port Colborne, Ontario
*Consumer Comment: Refferance fo Tom Mackenzie
April2009. They 'loved' my invention, my energy and professionalism and my business plan. They already had lots of investors waiting to make returns on fantastic opportunities like this. But not without due diligence, which I had to pay for.As soon asthey took my money the emails and phonecalls dried up. I had to chase, chase, chase. We had a few conference calls and I even spent more money to go up to Buffalo for a day to meet them and present the invention in real life.
They added insult to injury by wastingnearly one year of my life. One pathetic and inplausableexcuse after another. Enough was enough when they said they were having difficulties raising the funds because my product was niche and there was a recession in full force. Huh? But both applied when they said they had investors waiting! My product didn't become niche overnight, and the recession had beenraging for two years beforehand!
I demanded the due dilligence report I had paid for, or a refund. They could not produce a single page and agreed in writing to a refund....butfor only half the fee I had paid. Then they went silent again. Apparently 'Tom' had been taken ill but would address my refund once better. This was in February 2010. Then complete silence since. I appointed lawyers who wrote to them a few times. Silence.
I do not exaggerate when I say they have ruined my life. I have suffered financially, mentally and emotionally from this dreadful experience.
