*Consumer Suggestion: Red Flags
Received a voice mail message from a man named John saying he had extra work in our area. When I called back I spoke to a woman named Sumer. She said that they work with banks to contract work on local foreclosures. Each job was to pay between $200-$600 depending on the scope of work. All we would be responsible for was a $99 fee for a background check. There was no charge per job. I told her I would get back to her after speaking with the owner of the company.
Upon ending our conversation I started researching the company and couldn't find any information other than the website they provided me with. I went to the Ripoff Report website to see if there were any reports filed with the company.
Over the next few days, Sumer left me several voicemail messages to see if I made any decisions. When I finally spoke to her again I told her I couldn't find any information on the company. I asked how long they had been in business and where they were based out of. Sumer told me they were based out of New York and had been in business for 12 years. I asked her if they provide any kind of contract to their clients. She said they do not have any kind of contract, but that there was a break down of the promised work on their registration form. I then told her I tried researching her company and couldn't find them registered with the State of New York. I asked her if they were an LLC or a corporation doing business under a different name. She said she was unsure but she would let me speak to her supervisor and that she could answer those questions.
She transfered me to her supervisor (Jordan). I asked Jordan the same questions I had asked Sumer. Jordan gave me no answers, just told me she would transfer me to the Customer Service department and they would be able to answer my questions. I was then transfered to a generic voicemail message for the customer service department asking me to leave a message (sounded strangely like a generic cell phone answering service).
Sumer never called me back after that.
