Denise Betts Moore Denise MooreTrinity Consulting Scam and Rip-Off Artist Nationwide
*Author of original report: Adding more info...
This woman Denise Betts Moore, professional grant writer from Houston, scammed my non-profit foundation out of money. She has a company called Legacy Financial Inc (281)401-9214). I found out that the company she had before this one, Trinity Consulting, has an F rating from BBB. My number is (((REDACTED))), please contact me. There is also a new station in Glendale, AZ that ran a story about her scamming a woman out of $3000. I already called the Houston Attorney General to open a case on her. She is only scamming churches and non-profits from other states. My story is below.
I was approached about helping me with my brand new non-profit foundation called Teens of Power. Ms. Denise Betts Moore told me in an email her services would be free and all I had to pay were the filing fees for Incorporated and 501c3. She told me the cost was $975 for both. This was incorrect. The Inc is $25, not $125. The 501c3 is $850. I sent her $975. She overpriced the Inc.
On Tuesday, March 18, 2014 5:56 PM she emailed me saying that she was performing these services for free. On March 19, 2014 I sent her $125 by Walmart money pak. On March 22, 2014 I sent her $850 by Walmart money pak. I sent the confirmation numbers in a text message to her for both amounts. I questioned her about the Inc on March 26 through texts and she told me that I had to wait on the paperwork through the mail. On March 28 through texts I questioned her again. No response. On April 2 I questioned her again through texts, no response. I questioned her again on April 8, 2014 through texts. This day she finally applied for my EIN. On April 25 through texts I asked for the receipts for the Inc. No response. On April 25, 2014 I called the IRS and state of South Carolina to see if Denise had filed any paperwork for me. She had not. I called her and asked for my money back that day. On Monday April 28, 2014 I sent a text reminding her to put my money in the mail. No response. On May 2, 2014 I asked her through text if she put my money in the mail and if not to send it by Walmart money pak. She finally sent a text saying she was going to go to Walmart that day and send my money. The same day at 7:45 she sent me a text saying she was going to mail it because Walmart no longer carried money paks. On May 5, 2014, I texted and asked if she mailed it. No response. On May 9, 2014 I sent her a text stating that the money was not in the mail and I gave her my business checking account number so she could wire it. She did not wire it. On May 11, 2014 I spoke with Denise on the phone and worked out for her to send my $975 using Walmart’s new money transfer system. She claimed that it was not running at the Walmart she went too. On May 12, 2014 through texts I informed her I did contact my lawyer and he encouraged us to work it out before suing. So I gave her one last chance to wire the money. She said she would call me that night. She did not call. On May 13, 2014 through texts I asked if she sent the money. She responded she was doing it within the hour. On May 14 I sent another text asking if she wired it and she replied “it’s done.” I asked her for a confirmation number three times that day through texts and no response to either request. I checked Wells Fargo again this morning, May 15, 2014. I still have no funds pending. I sent her a text letting her know I was suing her and her company Legacy Financial.
