Now to the Report that was filed..

They took my money and all of my personal information and ran down my credit score by ordering various reports. I contacted the better business bereau a month ago and have heard nothing. When I call the office the recording picks up and hangs up whenever a button is push in accordance to what the recording says. The last time I heard about the company was from an ad sent to my email about a credit card offer that reports to the 3 major credit bereaus. So I called this ad and told me I was already in the system when they looked up my name. When I asked how, the guy said that Hargrave has went out of business and I was still in the company's records in which they had obtained when they bought out the credit card sales department of the company. I don't know how that works, but I would like to know whats going to happen with my money and my name.

Additional Information.

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

Complaints should be addressed to the FTC prosecuting attorney.

They were shut down by the FTC for alleged violations of several laws: THE CREDIT REPAIR ORGANIZATIONS ACT, THE TELEMARKETING SALES RULE, and SECTION 5 OF THE FTC ACT. Civil Action No. 3:08-CV-1001-J-34JRK. FTC File No. 082 3007.

On October 23, 2008 the District Court ordered all assets and records of LATRESE & KEVIN ENTERPRISES INC.(DBA Hargrave & Associates Financial Solutions) into temporary receivership with Lewis B. Freeman appointed as temporary receiver for the court. There was a preliminary hearing scheduled for November 3, 2008, but the FTC has not yet posted the results of that hearing on the FTC website.

Any client of this outfit should read the complaint and the temporary restraining order at the FTC.gov website:
