District Fire & Safety District Fire Safety or D.F.S. or Eva Valdez DFS District Fire Safety solicit your store, "check" fire alarm/sprinkler, make you sign for NO-charge bill, then bill you later! Pico Rivera California
District Fire and Safetly, came to our facilty and solicited the receptionist, telling her they were authorized to come and inspect the facility sprinklers, and using her as a mod to authorize a an inspection of the "fire alarm and sprinkler check". Our company has our own inspector for this and D.F.S. is not it.
Our receptionist stated that they did not even check anything. Had her sign a blank form. One month later we received a bill for $499.62.
Googled District Fire and Safetly and realized they are a scandel company. Watch Out, don't just pay the bill, if you did not request their service for your company!
Additionally, when they sent us the bill it included a W-9 form with the name Eva Valdez on it, she had checked off that the company is a Individual/Sole Proprietor with the address PO BOX 61, Pico Rivera, CA 90660. The most interesting piece of scandel for this is that if you are a "Individual/Sole Proprietor", for the ferderal tax ID number you would put your social security number.
Instead, they provided a Employer Identification number 42-2502491 (only corporations, use this). So this is a major clue they are out to get your money!!!
