Anderson Crenshaw & Associates were hired to do collection services on our accounts that were past due and wouldn't respond to our collection calls.

We have been doing business with them for just over a year and recently found out that they went out of business.  In the interim, some of our customers sent them money for payments which were never sent to us.   Anderson Crenshaw kept their money and did not remit our portion to us.

One of our customers sent them over $500.00 and we never received a dime from it.   We figure, what we have knowlege of, they collected over $5,000.00 on our accounts, but did not send us anything.   There could be other accounts that have paid them that we have no knowledge of.

It is such a shame that you hire a collection agency and put your trust in them to collect bad debt and they resort to thievery.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

lazarus financial group is a scam, crooks

AUTHOR: deceived - (United States of America)

I quit working for this company because of their unethical practices. I am astonished they are still in business. They should be in jail! The "lawyer" for company is his friend and lies just as much, his name is Steven R Dunn..
I never recieved a w2 from company..never heard from IRS , so no telling what they did. His irlfriend, or fiance, not sure, owns company...sorry girl, I've witnessed him cheating on you at work!!
Horrible...they collect money and lie about it to their ckients and give them msybe 2 percent of what was collected...its awful. Believe everything you read or hear about this company and man..all true.

#2 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Tom Backal / Anderson, Crenshaw / Lazarus Financial Group

AUTHOR: anonymous - (United States of America)

This company and its owner Tom Backal has stole over millions of dollars from their clients which are primarily the home security business.  He has been doing this since day 1 of operation.  He would shave days off the end of the month from the clients reports so they thought they were getting all their money but it was really only the 1st through the 20th that was being remitted.  He would produce an invoice showing on his books that he paid the clients but would just throw the invoice away and never produce a check.  He also took 12 months worth of taxes from a few of his employees and them 1099 them at the end of the year for 6 month worth.  He has tax liens on him for over 200k.  He files frivolous lawsuits against anyone that questions his ethics.  Now, he has moved up the highway and opened a new collection agency called Lazarus Financial Group and put it under his fianc name Sheri Mccann and gave all assets of Anderson to the new company.  Now he has filed bankruptcy (chapter 7) to wash away all liability.  Problem is, he has stolen so much money and has so many false books, he is not including everyone on it.  Below info can help you or at the very least, hold a crook liable of what he has done and not allow him to do it again which he has already started.
