Signet Financial Group Fraud

I bought a 2006 Puma Travel Trailer from All Seasons RV in Muskegon, Michigan on October 7, 2006 through Ebay.  The salesman was Joseph L. Benedict.  Mr. Benedict also sold me an extended service contract with a Signet refund addendum for $1,495.00.    The key term of this contract is as follows from the service contract agreement document:

“Signet Financial Group (SFG) agrees to refund the full purchase price ($2,500 Maximum) of the service contract to the original purchaser named above only if the service contract runs the full months term and is never used.

This extended service contract I purchased was for seven years and is due to expire October 7, 2013.  I have never used this service contract and expected to be refunded the $1,495.00 after October 7, 2013 as agreed to in the contract.  I called the number for the Signet Financial Group (listed below) on April 17, 2013 to inquire about the upcoming refund promise.  The phone is disconnected and subsequent internet searches about Signet have revealed that the company was an outright fraud and is out of business.

All Seasons RV is located in Muskegon and the contact information is as follows:

All Seasons RV Supercenter

4701 Airline Road

Muskegon, Michigan  49444

Phone:  231-739-5269

Fax:  231-737-6168

 

Signet Financial Group is apparently out of business now and their contact information was:

 

Signet Financial Group

Western Regional Processing Unit

PO Box 6839

Vacaville, CA.  95696-6836

Phone:  877-4-SIGNET 

The President of Signet Financial Group is Gregg Lehman 

I called All Season RV on April 17, 2013 and talked to a salesman named Mike Coron about this Extended Service Contract they sold me.  Mike gave me the All American run-a-round and said All Seasons RV is not responsible for the Extended Service Contract they sold me.  He sent me a letter dated May, 2011 from All Seasons RV to their customers stating essentially that they were not responsible for selling me the contract and pointed out exculpatory language in the contract that relieves them from any responsibility for the $1,495.00 due me. 

Another devious and diabolical aspect about this fraud is that it entices you not to have covered warranty work performed if the cost is substantially less than the cost of the extended service contract because you assume that you would be money ahead if you can re-coup the entire cost of the contract verses losing it if you turn in the cheaper warranty work.  Example: 

Extended Service contract cost:                            $1,495.00 *

Water Heater Circuit Board remove/replace:             $250.00

Difference                                                           $1,245.00 

*Amount is fully refunded if the Extended Service Contract is never used. 

As this example shows, you would lose $1,245.00 if you turned in the $250.00 warranty work and the company was legit and would have refunded you the $1,495.00.    

All Seasons RV may not necessarily have a legal obligation to pay me the money owed but they do have a moral obligation.  I wrote the check to ALL Seasons RV, not Signet Financial.  Also, All Seasons RV represented Signet as viable and should pay me the $1,495.00 and try to recoup the $1,495 from Signet.  The salesman really pushed this product and promised me I would get the $1,495.00 refund.  All Seasons RV should honor that promise. 

It is my understanding, from internet searches, that some dealerships are reimbursing their customers on a case by case basis. 

Also, I understand that this Gregg Lehman is now back in business in Texas and living in a multi-million dollar mansion. 

I will pursue this issue in perpetuity until I get my money back and/or see Gregg Lehman in jail. 

My contact information is as follows:

Oregon Settlement against Signet Financial Group

AUTHOR: C. Cole - ()

To all those involved in scam by Signet Financial Group. In 2008 I purchased an extended warranty from Signet Financial Group for a recreational vehicle in the amount of $1,500. After the terms of the contract were complete, I submitted the paperwork at which time the company gave me the runaround and refused to honor the refund. I contacted the Attorney General's Offices in OR/CA/FL. They have an associate company in FL. I sent grievance letters detailing the significant communications and copies of the contract and subsequent request materials required to complete the contract agreement in order to receive the refund. I had phone conversations with Signet when I could get through which were negative, e-mails denying receipt of Notorized/certified copies of requested materials, dates showing them dragging out the 30 day window given for the refund process. In short I documented every communication and action I took to receive the refund which I qualified for and which was denied and turned these items over to the Attorney General's Office. I filed a complaint with every organization even remotely connected to the situation, including the Insurance oversight organization. The county in which they did business and the BBB. I did not receive any encouragement or follow-up communication with the exception of the Oregon Attorney General's office. They indicated they would look into it.

I recently received a letter stating Signet Financial Group had agreed to a settlement with the State of Oregon DOJ File No.: 137420/FF3288-11 Multinomah County Circuit Court Case No.: 139-13569. In the agreement, Signet Financial Group, Inc. and Gregg Lehman may not offer or sell "Service Contract Refund" or similar products in the state of Oregon. Signet is required to provide some restitution over time and due to lack of funds consumers will not receive the entire purchase price of the contract. The first round of checks are to be sent out mid 2014 with the second round in the next several years. The Attorney General also recommends contacting the dealer selling the Service Refund for Signet Financial Group to attempt restitution. I encourage any and everyone involved to inundate their Attorney General with a grievance and please feel free to send the above information on the settlement to them as further proof of the scam.
