My 1st appointment with EY was March 14th 2013. I arrived and was greeted, asked to go ahead and sit down, fill out paperwork AND watch a video (above the receptionists head), while she continued to listen to her music AND talk to another employee that came in. Rick P. asked if I could hear the video ok. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? Next I was asked to follow Mr. P. into a small office, where the door was shut. I was very uncomfortable to say the least. I was asked a series of questions and was NEVER advised that our conversation was being recorded. And quite honestly – I really don’t know if it really was? But – in arguments to follow the next week – they claimed our “interview” was on tape. Hmm? NOT HAPPY about this at all!
After openly saying I was still in love with someone, apparently that didn't detour him from pressuring me to “Sign Here! “ He advised me of the outrageous amount to sign up for their services. I quickly said….NO WAY! I am a single mom, two mortgages etc…I know what I can or cannot afford. My heart was racing and basically telling me to leave! (You know your heart is God – right?!?) Mr. P. then told me how important it is to live within my means, and telling me how he has made sacrifices, and drives a 20 year old car (can’t remember exactly how old he said), etc…etc….All I can say is WOW! I have a mom and dad dude, and I’m 41 years old. I have made my bed, and I am laying in it. I don’t need YOU to preach to me as well. ANYWAY…he is looking at my income and telling me, “You are telling me you can’t afford $100 month” And I repeatedly said no! I brought my phone out to use the calculator and he abruptly told me to, “PUT THE PHONE DOWN!” (Which if you recorded this EY – You WILL hear this!)
So more back and forth, pressure, and a lot of “No’s” later….he says, “OK – I will do something for you that I have NEVER done before.” (Yeah – right!) He proceeded to tell me, he will accept $50.00 month and take $500 off the 2-year contract amount leaving me to pay $1995.00! They will only need a $100.00 down payment. All this to meet GOD’s chosen one?!?! Really? Isn't God’s Love FREE?? As I continuously felt the heat climbing up my back, Mr. P. staring at me, I regretfully signed the paperwork, UNDER DURESS, and paid the $100.00 down payment. Ugh!!!!!! He snatched my paperwork up quickly too!! I left the office, with the hardness still in my stomach like I made a HUGE mistake.
They are closed on Sunday and Monday. I called and left a message on the following Monday asking someone to contact me ASAP. I always thought GA had a 48-hour clause on ANY contract?? I was contacted Tuesday by Betty. I advised her that I was NOT happy at all with my decision. She then told me I had to write everything down on paper, which I quickly did and sent it in. I received a reply pretty much telling me, “SORRY – YOU’RE SCREWED!” Part of my complaint was being a single mom; I don’t have time to date on weekends, as my child is on a travel baseball team. (I pretty much live at the ballpark), AND weekdays, I am home, doing my job as a stay-at-home mother, I do not go out during the week. Still…they said – SORRY- You signed! My other complaint was enduring another $2K in debt. I advised them that I've been working SO hard to pay things off the…I did NOT want to endure more debt! I even referenced Romans 13:8! (I wonder if they know that’s a Bible verse?!?) I said they could keep the $100 I already paid in lieu of the time spent with me in their office. Heck – I thought that was REALLY FAIR! Apparently not for them!!
To call themselves a “Christian” company truly upsets my heart. I have prayed over this since I left that day. I am so upset over this entire thing. I know I signed a contract….Lord KNOW'S I know!! BIGGEST mistake I have made in a LONG time. Sadly, once you sign the dotted line – EY is VERY PLEASED with themselves…. they've “GOT YOU!” Kind of like a timeshare….NO WAY OUT SUCKER!!
Today, 5/1/2013, I received a call from “Ms. Kelly.” She told me to call her to work something out that they didn’t want to have to ruin my credit. ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! I called her back within the hour and she wasn’t there. This was at 2:15pm EST. (Yes – I AM keeping record of everything!) Needless to say….I STILL have not received a call back.
PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE – help me spread the word that EQUALLY YOKED is FAR from a Christian based company. Keep your FAITH, TRUST, HOPE, & PATIENCE in HIM and HE will bring you happiness. Through HIS perfect timing!!!! SAVE your time AND hard-earned money! DO NOT SIGN their contract!!!! SHAME ON YOU EY!!! I’m SO happy you are able to sleep well at night, knowing what you are doing to innocent people. You will continue to be in my prayers, as hard as that is….this is what I am supposed to do.
Still waiting for your call MS. KELLY!!!
