Ez 1 rate is a scam company that scams people into signing up for bogus "discount" long distance. They are run by scam artists working out of the university loan services offices in Clearwater, FL. They are owned by Adam Shorr. Their phone number is 800-974-7536 (this is the number for University Loan Services - but they are all run by the same scammers.

There are also several other scam companies that are owned and operated by Mr. Shorr and his band of scammers. The ones I have located are NEVER PAY RETAIL, PICK YOUR GIFTS.ORG, DISCOUNT HEALTH, FIRST USA FINANCIAL, FIRST INET AND MYIFSERVICES. Also - they run University Loan Services - a scam student loan consolidation company that charges you a fee of over $200 to do something that is totally free to do with a reputable company. NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH THESE LOSERS. Also - there is a man named Daniel Kusko who answered the phone the first time I called. he is a registered sex offender in Florida.

Here are some emails that were sent from them to me - after they finally agreed to refund my elderly grandmothers account. they had a bogus recording which was not in my grandmothers voice. I later called about another refund from a client I found that had been scammed. When I listened to THAT recording - it was the same voice on the phone from the supposed client. They just use simple digital editing technology. IF THEY REFUNDED ONE CLIENT THE ENTIRE AMOUNT THEY CHARGED - THEY HAVE TO REFUND ALL OF THEM. AND BECAUSE THEY SAID THEY HAD THE "PROOF" - THEY CANNOT SAY THAT THIS CASE WAS SPECIAL. IF THEY HAD THE PROOF - AND MADE THE REFUND THEY MUST REFUND ALL CLIENTS WHO ASK. CALL ALEX AT 800-923-8939 TO GET A FULL REFUND. - (see email string below). When it mentions police involvement - they did call the police after I called their bogus scam university loan services office a bunch of times to get Mr. Scam artist Adam Shorr on the phone - but the police officer said he would be investigating them - and thanked me for my assistance in bringing him to them. He is transferring the case to the Clearwater FL economic crimes division!!! I also called the FBI and they referred me to the Federal Trade Commission and the Secret Service (they handle Identity Theft - and I beleive this bogus student loan consolidation company to be selling customer information to the highest bidder). Why not when you are in every scam you can set up.

email from Ez1rate to me after SEVERAL phone calls to all parties.

Mr. Shad,
This message is to formally confirm the account #141365 has been cancelled. Although we do have audio verification of the authorization to be signed up for our service and accompanying charges, the full amounts paid for the services ordered have been returned as a courtesy. There is no need for further contact to Customer Service. Continuing to harass Customer Service and threaten employees of will result in immediate legal action and police involvement. If you have any further questions or concerns you may contact by US Mail at the following address:
2050 Russett Way Suite 151 (side note - this address
Carson City, NV 89703 "corporate" - is a mail box
Thank you, company)

Customer Service Supervisor

Alex went on to state that I needed to stop calling his people at University Loan Services. I asked him why - when they are supposedly not even linked. How did he even know about my calls to them????? He knoew about them because they are all in the same scams together.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

Ez1rate is affiliated with University Loan Solutions and here's how!

AUTHOR: I Hate Scams - (U.S.A.)

First off if aka Long distance Unlimited is not affilliated with any other company then why is Ron/Ronald Scott who works for University Loan Solutions/Services as the 'C.O.O.' (lol) representing ez1rate in a federal proceeding? How can someone who works for another company represent your company if they don't work for you or you have nothing to do with them or their company?

I guess Alex isn't telling the world the truth now is he?

One more thing; if Adam shorr is a partner in and also owns other companies then that means that is also affiliated with those companies either directly or indirectly as Adam J. Shorr is a representative of all he is affiliated with or co-owns, owns or invests in.

#2 UPDATE Employee

Courtsey - LEARN IT

AUTHOR: Alex - (U.S.A.)

The man who posted this complaint is completely out of control and has written inaccurate information. He called our customer service center repeatedly for someone elses account and threatened EZ1Rate employees and representatives over a 1 week period. He threateded he would hunt down the owners to get a refund for his grandmother - unfortunatley his grandmother had been provided a full refund of all amounts paid as a COURTSEY - before his threats were voiced.

Upon being informed of this Shad continued to call and harrass EZ1Rate customer service. He called other companies and persons and threatened them referring to EZ1Rates "scam". EZ1Rate is not a scam - EZ1Rate has full authorization on file for all charges incurred by customers - including the account referred to in this complaint.

I (alex) was contacted by other companies and persons in reference to threatening calls made by Shad regarding EZ1Rate and therefore the police were contacted to stop this absurd and inaccurate harrassment. EZ1Rate provided a refund to the account in reference as a COURTSEY not because EZ1Rate was obligated to.

EZ1Rate is not affiliated with any other company either referred to in this complaint or not. If you can benefit from unlimited state to state long distance for a flat monthly fee feel free to contact our offices at 1-800-923-8939.
