Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

We sent several clients to the below individual for suppose to say, credit repair. At the beginning, all was fine....towards the end disappeared like most.

We have couple remaining clients in his program that were placed these past few months and have not heard from him at all...Basically to us, sounds like he has scammed us after several attempts of communication.

Looks like Corky Kicked the Bucket

AUTHOR: Chris - ()

I had gave him the benefit of the doubt after he ensured me some "family" was using his name after i later caught back up with him after a year went by.  But, once again, he did the same exact thing, nothing. And kept ranting on and on about God and church. I also never got 1 dime back of the $1,000 he was given.

The guy was acting weird, asking me to talk to him on the phone and comfort him and weird stuff like that.

He said his parents died in a car wreck and some other family and that he had to take in some small nieces and nephews.

Turns out, it looks like Karma has caught up with him, i checked on google to see if he was still scamming, and up pops a death and funeral announcement, looks like he rolled a car and died.

I got a hunch this guy was on drugs or booze or both, and had major issues, he even made death threats to a correctional institution it appears.

Looks like Karma finally caught up with this guy.

If he has good parents, i feel sorry for them, but as for him, justice served.

This guy stole from countless nationwide for years, and he knew people couldn't really do much about it, so that's why he kept it going.

It's no telling how many people lost cars, apartments, houses, behind this scammer. These people don't realize when they steal from already desperate poor people like that, the shock waves from 1 incident can s****.>

I guarantee it's in the 10's of thousands he's stolen, from me 1k alone

Cya Cork.

I fell victim

AUTHOR: Chi town - ()

I also fell victim to Corkey Cooksey a.k.a. Peyton Gann. I was introduced to him in February 2013 who guarnteed my credit reports would be fixed within 3-6 months. Corkey or Peyton requested I send him 500.00 then asked for an additional 250.00 to prevent him from going to jail for an old traffic warrant so he can ensure that he finished my report within a sufficient time. He also requested I send more clients to him so he rebuild his tarnished reputation. I did so and never had so much as an address updated. There was always excuses such as I'm in a small town and the storm knocked out my power. Sometimes weeks passed and he wouldn't answer nor return calls emails etc. He also requested that I get a hold of the clients I sent who were just as worried because of his inaccessability, and reassure them. Five months passed and I began to ask for my funds back for services that were never rendered but to no avail. He always ran this is a Christian based business but I never read in the Binle on how to manipulate ones who requested services to make a better life for them and their perspective families. Since then I still haven't heard from Corkey Cooksey aka Peyton Gann and since then have refunded 5 of the 6 clients their monies back based off my name. I hope readers take heed to prevent being burned by this fraud who claims to be operating out of Alabama and Arkansas.

He is doing everything he can to rectify the situation, it turns out there were some people using his company to trick others.

Corkey also is very knowledgeable within the credit repair industry.

We have spoken several times and he is working on the files to get them in order.

To Chris

Call me in the morning (808) 747-0008 or 870-227-2577 because I want to discuss our issue over the phone.  The reason I have a Hawaii phone is because the credit bureaus shut down at 5 p.m. in all time zones and with a Hawaii number I can get disputes entered as late as 11 p.m. Arkansas time.  The information you pulled up about Cooksey & Associates is really old; I was a teenager during 1986 and have never been affiliated anyone in the state of Florida.  I am a one person credit team; I do not take on a large number of files at a time because their is a lot of hard work and a lot of time, laws, acts, and many other circumstances that goes with running a business.  I obey the federal Fair Credit Organizations Act and do not take an fees upfront; no consultation fees, no high monthly fees; the only time I get paid is when results are produced and the client gets confirmation, though the mail for Trans Union results; through email for Equifax results; and, Experian delivers results to email and through regular mail.  I have had several middlemen go South and steal from me and a lot of clients' think it was me who got paid and did not do the work. 

Please call me in the morning,

If you were in part with Peter Cruz, he disappeared with a lot client' (his clients') money and owed me quit a bit before he disappeared.  Like I said if I am responsible for a file; I will do the right thing because I am a Christian and would rather have no money at all and be happy than to have taken money because of an error or because of another person or simply because I did not get a chance to finish the job.

Just call me

All of what you're saying may be true.  I recognize everything you said, about the dealership etc, which is who pulled the report. 

That "cruz" person may be the clown that lied to me in the first place, and took half the money, and i spoke with someone that called himself corkey on the phone a few times after this "cruz" person, (if that's the guy, which as i said before, i could have swore he was hispanic from my memory, so that may be the guy).

After he handed the file over to this corkey person. (Which is who he identified himself as) That's the person that lied, didn't do the work and wasn't answering his phone.

Unfortunately for you though, if you had others stealing and working your files etc, for 1, people trusted YOU with their files ,not every tom d**k and harry. Their information is supposed to be in a protected place and not passed around to others.

I understand you said you were ill, but if that's the case you should have shut the business down, if someone stole the computers they should have been reported. All of this leads me to believe  a lot of people probably had their identity stolen because of this reason as well.

It's no different than if i own a restaurant and some clown employee spits on someones food, guess what, i'm on the hook...

More Information!

AUTHOR: Corkey Cooksey - (United States of America)

My company is a legitimate company.  I am been doing credit repair for 12 years.  I have had family members along the way to help me with the business, then just turn and run with the money.  I do  not ever know who you are or who had your file last.  But if it was me, talk to me because I have had clients in Chicago tell clients I was supposed to take care of their credit repair; I did not because I only received the first payment down.  I have a contracted written up by an attorney and my ein:  262-21-3636.  The state of Arkansas does not require a bond or license.  My expertise is getting things deleted from the credit reports rapidly.  Judgments come off with inquiries in the same day with Trans Union; Equifax is usually done in 30 and you know about Experian.  If I get the results from Experian; I can make Experian faster.  I have worked with Kevin/Ashley Drew who stole all of my computers when I was working for Bill Heard Chevrolet in Buford, GA; they tried to go off and do the business themselves and failed.  I had another cousin who I think he was with me when we had a few West Coast files from Peter Cruz in Arkansas.  I talked to Elliott Adams and told him; I would finish what was left on his bureaus and he said Peter ran away with $20,000.  The phone number:  808-474-0008 is my cellphone number; it is not a Google number or to anything else.  I am in for credit repair to help people, not just for the money.  I have been sick for the past three years with thyroid cancer and I finally got the correct treatment that is making me feel 18 years old again.  If you get me who you are; I know I can fix the situation.  I do not know what happened last time except for the fact I could have been doing business with a "middleman."

Yep, its you, now how did i know you were in AR if i had the wrong person? I knew it was you, your phone number area code is Hawaii, but i knew it was you, i said you were in AR earlier. You ripped me off a few years back, just like this poster posted. Thanks for confirming what state you're in.

Why the Hawaii area code?

Also, the only thing that comes up for your state is the following report below, which clearly states your business license is REVOKED.

Are you operating under someone elses name or is that you? ? ? ?

Furthermore, a credit repair license is totally "additional" to a BUSINESS, license, if you take money, um, you must have a business license of some sort. Some states require a credit repair license, some don't, some require a  bond, some don't, not sure of your state, i'd have to find out, because we sure can't go off of anything you say, but you are not a licensed business

And "if", you got your act together now, you sure as hell didn't back then, so what i said is fact, you ripped me, and who knows who else, you also ripped this person that posted this report. 

You're a hustler and you know it, period, fast talker and a slickster.

Good for you if you're "legit" now, but i highly doubt it, matter fact, why are you still using "gmail" email addresses and weird phone numbers?


Take some of that money you ripped me for and get your stuff legit, even your pic looks like some little wannabe b boy slickster

Here's the report below, and i highly doubt that ein is legit, looks made up, and you can get an ein over the phone, all you need is your social security number, that is not a CITY business license, or a corp, or llc, or anything of that nature, nice try.

Here is your information

AUTHOR: Corkey Cooksey - (United States of America)

Cooksey & Associates
105 Cherry St.
Lake City, AR 72437

EIN:  262-21-3636

We do not have to be bonded because we do not collect until services are rendered (which means an account of any value has to be deleted from the report).  The client has to be given contract and has three days to discuss it with their attorney, etc.  The client is given a copy of their credit file rights under state and federal law which must be signed before any credit repair can begin on the file.  My state does not required a license or bond because credit repair is solely governed by the Fair Credit Organizations accounts.

Hiding that's your skill

AUTHOR: Chris - (USA)

Hiding behind the net is your skill. Do you honestly think you look "authentic" just because you're providing some sort of gmail free email address? Or a throwaway cell phone number? Big deal, that doesn't PROVE anything.

So everybody just makes up stories on poor old Corkey? "Just cause?"..Come now

Um, do you have a REAL office front? Business License? Credit Repair License? Bonded? Many states require that in order to do credit repair, show me a link to your state LLC, city biz license...Show me a link to your valid credit repair license...

You're an open book right? Honest, and not worried right? Ok corks, PROVE IT......

Where's your website? Why don't you have  a valid domain email? Instead of a made up freebie gmail?

What's your office location? If you're a legit business, you should have one.

Dude, you are fraud, period, i GUARANTEE, you cannot provide any of the above.

That guy i gave the money to went ghost, he was a crook himself, he lied and said the file would be done in 30 days, uh huh......1 item was removed and it wasn't even the one i needed removed! lol

You kept half the money, and ignored your phone until i tricked you that day, matter fact, isn't it odd this person is saying the same thing in this report????????

Balls in your court, matter fact, i'm right here right now stating this. Don't forget, im just playing your "hide behind the net" game you played with me and others, so don't think for one min. im afraid to say who i am.

Here's your challenge, provide us with everything i just listed above

Once you do, i'll publicly apologize, not post anything else and also give my contact info...

Balls in your court cook....

Mr. Beverly Hills guy, if you want to keep running your mouth about my company when I have never met up then keep on.  All of my clients are satisfied with my business and have new houses and cars.  You are the one not showing who you are.  You have my email address:; have these alleged customers to get a hold of me instead of being a pretend ghost with absolutely no idea about credit repair or me for that matter.

Man to man face to face?

AUTHOR: Chris - (USA)

Hey, corkey, don't pull the "man to man" face to face card now. You were the one that lied to people over the internet in the first place, taking their money and lying about credit repair. I paid a hispanic guy, and i cannot think of his name and he gave you half the money and you supposedly worked on my credit files and you didn't do S%$%. You kept on with excuse after excuse after excuse. Wouldn't answer your phone, lied about what you could get done.

So don't talk this "show yourself, be a man" talk now. This is just more of your own method and medicine being thrown right back at you.

Guys like you prey on people using the "internet". Plain and simple.

You're a FRAUD, period, you sell bogus credit repair over the internet, you're probably operating out of a studio apartment, if you are not now, im sure you probably were then.

I know there's other victims, but it just goes to show, it's funny how i ran into your name when i was googling around about credit repair and sure enough this came up in one of my searches and i remembered your name, and sure enough, somebody else is talking about what a joke clown crook you are. Grow up little boy, stop stealing from already poor people in desperate situations. Get a JOB. Or at least provide a REAL service without UP FRONT money, so you can get it then act like you forgot your phone works

You didn't answer until i caught you off guard that one day and i changed my caller id when i called you, and you were all actin like umm yeh uhhh when i got you on the phone because it shocked you.

This report is dead on about this clown

AUTHOR: Chris - (USA)

Not sure if he's still in business, or moved on to something else but yeh this guy ripped me off a few years ago. His credit repair is a joke, he disappears and doesn't answer the phone, then reappears. Then disappears for months. They also lied about what could be done. Just do it yourself people, or use a company that only charges after results, nothing up front. This guy is no good, i think he said he was out of Arkansas at the time and it was an ARK. number if i recall.
