It all started with a good credit card order, An employee named Gabriel Menchaca then asked for terms, we did a little checking and they seemed okay so we extended NET 30 terms, Then 3 PO's with 30 or so days dating back to Sept 2005 and a total of about $1600.00 in equipment.

Repeated calls to different people have led to more lies and stories. Contacted the President of the company David Bell. He has also made payment promises that never happen.

Stay away from these guys - they are all smoke and mirrors.

Let the seller be aware!

David Bell is the President

Here is information I should have researched before extending this guy DAVID BELL any credit.

Here is a report I pulled on my friend David Bell, seems he has tried to tie himself to the real USTELECOM.com, failed a couple of comapnies, and owes a TON of money.

I guess I am the fool for not looking up this guy in the first place.

Just wanted to shore up my story - HOW ABOUT YOU DAVID BELL?

It's long but interesting ........

A check of records dated as of Mar 25 2005 with the California Secretary of State revealed that an active foreign qualification was issued under US-Telecom.com Inc on Jun 30 2003 listing the captioned address as a Nevada corporation. A check of records with the NevadaSecretary of State on Mar 29 2005 revealed that a domestic corporate
charter was issued for the corporation name on May 28 2002 showing Alan Teegardin as the sole officer. Records show that this charter was revoked effective Jun 1 2004.
On Mar 25 2005, Robert Berger, president of U S Telecom, Inc, New York, NY reported that his company has no business relationship or affiliation with the subject company. It was indicated that any affiliation by the subject company to U S Telecom, Inc and use of its

phone number (626) 256-8911 at the same captioned address.
Also, a review of payment information reported by suppliers to D&B between May 2004 & Mar 2005 shows multiple instances of severe slowness in payments to vendors. Vendors reported over $200,000 in
