Ripoff Report Verified REVIEW:

EDitors UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to APX Alarm for its commitment to excellence in customer service.

Ripoff Reports discussions with the company have uncovered an ongoing commitment to total customer satisfaction. You can expect to have any questions or concerns that you have with them to be answered and resolved in a timely manner. They have shown us their customer service process, and it reflects a desire to serve customers, as well as fix problems.

The company's management specifically told us about how their job is to simplify lives and help people to live intelligently. The management really wants every person who buys a system to feel valued. The concern for each customer's experience starts at the top, and is reflected in the action of every employee they hire.

The company also works to monitor their sales and customer support calls to see how they can be improved. They use these calls as examples for employees in training. Currently, Vivint is working to make changes to their contracts to make things easier for their customers as they have found that many of their complaints stem from feeling misled or customers paid fees they did not feel they authorized.

Apx Alarm Security Solutions  Ripoff in CANADA, Internet

Got a Free system installed, now that i've lost my job after 15 yrs I cant afford payments.

My credit card is maxed out so cc company isn't allowing any more payments to be put against it.

Contacted company regarrding del. account and they assured me they would work with me, their idea of working with me is they have now sent my account to a collection agency.

This I found out when I called them today to let them know  when I expect to  be able to bring account up to date, at this point I am in arrears for the amount of $180.00, they are now telling me to bring my account up to date I must pay them $400.00,so much for understanding and working with YOU.

Had the company done a credit check they would have found out I was unemployed and deeply in debt, goes to show that the companys over zealous employee was only concerned about selling the service and not concerned abount professional business practices.

Rumors indeed!

AUTHOR: Kelly - (United States of America)

Rumor has it that some people like to use big words to inflate minor clerical errors into public dangers. Typically licenses from many cities merely mean that the company in question simply stopped by and said hello to the government office in the area (for your information). APX is a very efficient company that takes care of licensing every where it does business. Usually the only problem is government workers who cannot get their licenses in order in a timely manner. Then some one with a question about the company's validity calls in and talks with the guy in the office that doesn't know what he is doing and says that they don't have a license. Isn't it ironic that there are few companies out there that don't have a rip off report and many of those are responsible for the rip offs that actually hurt people not just cost them a few minutes on the phone.

AUTHOR: Kelly - (United States of America)

I find it sad when individuals sign up for things they cannot afford and blame the company for signing them up for them. Credit scores are not a means for a company to decide on whether a customer should by something or not. Their purpose is to allow the company to calculate risk. If a consumer decides to make a purchase he cannot afford it is ethically referred to as STEALING. because the company providing the good or service has to pay costs associated with that good or service provided. Please do not post a company on RIP OFF reports when you were the one ripping them off. 

Thank you,
