*General Comment: Dealbrokerz SCAM

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

this company operates in Houston by the name caterbrokers promising businesses catering jobs for a fee . I was charged $1598 dollars ( I agreed to $799/mo) but my account was debited $1598 without my permission. The contract guarantees a minimum of 4 catering jobs the first month and 50 per year.

A person by the name of Chris Bustos came into my restaurant to make the deal. I later talked to a "John" that is the "account supervisor" . I fugured it was a scam when I told him of the double charge and he said it was for fees assoiciated with the account ( this was after 5 days of the contract) after 45 days no catering jobs were offered. I tried to contact them but got the run around. Later I found out that they had also done the same thing to at least 2 businesses here in houston for about $50,000 total.

this is a warning to any restaurant or small business trying to get more sales leads etc. it is a SCAM!!

Call the police if you are apporached by these thieves . Do not give them any account information or any money up front. The scam has been used by other companies susch as this one to get service oriented businesses such as : cleanning companies, lawn care etc . They come in promising jobs , get your account info and ACH $ out of it !!!!Big warning with caterbrokers, dealbrokerz and socialyum this is the same people working out of California a huge scam!!!!

Dealbrokerz SCAM

AUTHOR: Ragin Cajun - ()

I have information regarding our case of fraud against Dealbrokerz LLC.
Through research via our banks fraud division we have uncovered additional names involved.
Orland and Rozanne Buckius are the account owners of Dealbrokerz LLC. Their contact information is as follows:
Phone number: 831-438-9450 and 831-438-9451
Address: 181 Spreading Oak
Dr, Scotts Valley CA 95066
The LLC was filed on 06/27/2012 as a domestic LLC.
I called and spoke with Mrs. Backius directly, she confirmed that they front money for a few guys to
operate The men involved are Chris Bruno(aka Chris Brun, Chris Bustos, Albert Connor, and Eric Boli. They travel around the US signing up restaurants to join their marketing company to promote catering clients. In speaking with Mrs. Backius she said the gentlemen listed were staying at a Homewood Suites here in Houston recently.

The attorney on file for Dealbrokerz LLC is T. George Delsa Attorney at Law, 4509 Beau Luc Lane Meterie LA 70002, Phone # 504-885-6354. After many attempts to resolve our issue all Mr. Delsa does is stall and make excuses.
On November 14, 2012 our catering department agreed to a one month trail with Dealbrokerz, we paid for this first month of service by company check. According to the written agreement we had 30 days to cancel or the annual membership would be billed at $4800. On December 13th, 2012 we emailed to our cancellation notice (within the 30 days allowed).
Starting on December 21, 2012 we began to have ACH (Automatic Clearing House) charges of $4,800 show up
on our account. This happened 10 more times on the following dates: 12/24/2012,
1/4/2013, 1/7/2013, 1/8/2013, 1/9/2013, 1/11/2013, 1/15/2013, 1/15/2013,
1/17/2013, 1/18/2013. Each of these charges were for $4,800.
During the initial meeting with Dealbrokerz(888-819-1483) we met with their sales representative Chris Bruno(904-417-8714). Once we started our investigation we came up with the additional names listed above (Chris, Albert, and Eric).
In addition, weve discovered the bank and processing bank involved:
North American Banking
Check Gateway 480-785-2262
Currently we are working with our bank IBC, Check Gateway, and North American Banking to find who authorized the transactions.

We have an open case with the Houston Police Department Financial Crimes Department and are waiting for the District Attorney to move forward with Criminal charges against Dealbrokerz LLC. Our case #007487813L. Officer Brandon Burgess,, is the lead investigator, please feel free to contact Officer Burgess for me details. There at least 5 Houston restaurants that have reported fraudulent business from Dealbrokerz LLC.
In addition, we have filed a lawsuit against Dealbrokerz LLC and Orland Buckius(registered agent for Dealbrokerz LLC)
