Complaint Review: accurise
accuriseWilshire Blvd, Santa Monica , CA Santa Monica, California United States of America
accurise IMC Capital accurise is a scam. The owner is a thief. STAY AWAY!!! Santa Monica, California
*Consumer Comment: Sounds like my ordeal
*UPDATE Employee: Our unmatched record and services will paint a more accurate picture
We were instructed by the owner to tell them that we were approved by the Department of Justice and that we were calling from a mortgage company called Cobalt. Accurise doesn't even tell the people that they are signing up for credit repair. The clients are told that they are getting approved for a home loan.
The owner of accurise is the worst kind of thief. He tells his employees to call people who have applied for loans with Lending Tree and tell them that accurise is an FHA program.
It is a terrible place to work. I was only there for 3 weeks but it was enough. The owner of the company was like a scam artist crook from the movies. They treat the employees like slaves and pay them next to nothing and then threaten them all day long.
We were told to lie. We were instructed to tell clients that the first step to getting them approved for a loan was "a free consultation," but first they had to pay $59.95 for their credit report. Credit reports don't cost anywhere near that and most people know that so we had to tell them that it was some kind of "special" credit report that only we could get.
We were also instructed to tell them that there was some kind of guarantee to their services but, there really isn't. The clients are told they are getting a "free consultation" worth $300. This is a joke. There is no consultation. The so called credit experts are just more telemarketers who know nothing about credit or anything else and whose only purpose is to trick the people into signing up for something they can do themselves.
We were told to tell them that credit repair would only cost about $300-$500 and that was only if they needed it. They all needed it according to the so-called "credit specialists" (salesmen) and were charged much more. Clients are told that we have a 2 for 1 special but accurise just charges them twice as much.
They are always changing the lies almost every day to stay ahead of the California Attorney General and the have meetings where the owner laughs about the Assistant CA Atty General and how they keep her happy with a bunch of lies and scams. They have sales meetings all the time which are really just sessions about changing the lies that the telemarketers can tell this week.
I think most of the telemarketers who work there really think they are helping people. They are told that one day they will make decent money if they just keep selling more and more of these phony credit reports. They are victims also. They are abused intimidated and underpaid. Even the best salesmen are paid hardly enough to live while the owners are rich beyond imagination. They drive very expensive cars, wear Rolex watches and live in houses that look like castles but they are nothing more than common criminals preying on their clients and employees.
