Matt Williams NCS law group Collection scam Nationwide
I got the following email:   Dear Debtor,Kindly verify your mailing address, as we are going to send you important documents, so we wanted to confirm the mailing address before we send any of those papers.Just to remind you, this is regarding the e-mail we sent you earlier and we did not receive any prompt response from your end to set up the payment and to avoid the charges.For any questions and concerns, do get back to us so that we can help you with a solution if indeed you want to get rid of the consequences. You can either e-mail us back or call us on the phone number given below. We work from 9 AM EST to 6 PM EST. BEST REGARDS,Matt Williams,Sr. Investigation OfficerNCS Law GroupDirect : (607) 264-2015 First of all, the mistakes in language and grammar make it clear to me that this did not come from a lawyer, and likely not from a person whose first language is English.  First red flag.  There is no web presense for this person or the company he claims to represent.  Second red flag.  The email contains none of the language required by debt collectors under federal law This is an attempt to collect a debt...  Third red flag.  More issues: The phone number is unlisted.  The email address from which it was sent looks fake: info3@stainternational.org.  They don't even use my name, just dear debtor, which tells me they are just fishing.   There is no conceivable way that this comes from a legitimate debt collector.  If they are even trying to collect on what was once a valid debt, they are breaking several major federal laws, especially by insinuating that failure to pay a debt is a crime (not true, unless fraud is involved or the court has ordered payment).   The only reason I'm taking the time to post this is that it is possible the debt was once valid, as I owe a lot of money to different companies.  This agency could be praying on people who owe money and will assume this is a legitimate debt collection attempt.  I promise you, if you pay these people, they will not report any debt as paid, and they will likely continue to harass you.  Your credit will not be helped, they may deny having received payment, and they may steal credit card or checking account information.  Don't do it.  I believe these are the same people who have been leaving messages saying they are from the sherrif's office and they are coming to arrest me if I don't pay.  I actually called them once, to tell them I'm a lawyer and I know better (true).  It hasn't stopped them.  You will only invite more trouble into your life by acknowledging their contacts.  If you feel you must contact them, you are better off telling them that you will never pay them, and if they think they have a valid claim, to take you to court.  Just make sure to do your communicating in writing, and in the highly unlikely event you are sued, make sure you go to court and bring the communications with you.

Matt Williams showed up to my house and gave me a price quote on putting up a retaining wall, stainning a deck, and putting timber steps down my hill.  I was told to give him 50% upfront and then 50% unpon completion.  After excuses after excuses, including a family member took his own life (don't believe that was true now), Matt stop taking my calls or text.  He has not returned any calls, so now I have to pay a lawyer to squeeze blood out of a turnip.  Probably will never see my money again!!  THIS GUY IS A THIEF!!  DO NOT TRUST ANYTHING THIS GUY SAYS!!!  Hopefully no one else gets burned by this sorry excuse for a human being!!

Matt Williams Williams Landscape Designs, Williams Landscape Solutions. FRAUD: Took Deposit Money and Performed No work North Wilkesboro, NC North Carolina
We hired Matt Williams based off of a Craigslist Ad on 5/25/2017 to perform patio repair work. Matt was prompt in his response and provided a quick quote. He was professional and presented as knowledgable about what he was doing. He required a $400 materials deposit to get the work started and projected to have the work completed in the next 2 weeks.  2 weeks went by and we did not hear from Matt. We attempted to call and text the number we had to no avail. I found him on facebook and did get a response. On 6/28/2017 Matt responded that he had put a check for the deposit money in the mail. Weeks went by and I did not receive a check. I tried to message him again on facebook and stopped recieving responses. After contacting close relatives, I was contacted by him threatening to go to the police for harassment.I again attempted to get him to return the deposit money. On 7/13/17 Matt again reported that he was sending a check. The next week, I contacted him again when nothing had been received. On 7/17/17 I was told that he had stopped payment on the check and sent a money order. A week has gone by and I have not received any payments. In looking into this problem further, I have found that he has other reports filed against him. I am under the impression that this is his pattern.   Links to reports of him doing this previously:http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/matthew-david-williams/hiddenite-north-carolina-28166/matthew-david-williams-dba-williams-lanscaping-matt-williams-matt-williams-dba-matthew-w-1309101http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/matt-williams-dba-williams-landscape-designs/internet/matt-williams-dba-williams-landscape-designs-williams-landscapes-solutions-collected-50-1276679http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/williams-landscape-solutions/hiddenite-north-carolina/matt-williams-dba-williams-landscape-solutions-scam-artist-landscaper-who-knows-exactl-1286866

Matt Williams dba Williams Landscape Designs Williams Landscapes Solutions Collected 50% of job quote, never did job, refused to refund the money paid Hiddenite, Statesville North Carolina
In June 2015, I was looking through a yardsale site on the internet and saw a post from a landscaping business.  It was a local business, claimed to be veteran owned, and the photos posted looked like work I would like to have done.  I contacted Matt Williams dba Williams Landscape Designs (Changed name to get rid of bad reviews on facebook page under this name). AKA  Williams Landscapes Solutions.  He was very prompt, in fact said he was currently on my road and would be by in a few minutes to take a look at the job.  He showed up with his friend who he said did the landscaping part of his business, that he (Matt) did the walls, walkways, grading, etc.  He seemed very nice.  I told him I was on a fixed income (SSDI) and that I needed the work done as reasonably as I could find.   At the time I had a small patio of red pavers at the base of my back stairs to try and eliminate mud from my dogs. I was looking for a walkway with gravel and turf to be put in to minimize the mud.  Matt said he would call me the next day with a quote.  Which he did for $1100  materials and labor.   I told him I was going to be out of town for the next week, and he suggested I give him a 50% deposit before I left and he would have all the work done by the time I returned.  He came to my home on 6/27 and picked up a check for $550.00. He gave me a receipt for the deposit and a copy of the quote.  I didn't push him to itemize anything as I trusted him.  When I left on 6/30, I expected the work to be done when I returned on 7/2 as Matt said it was going to take a day maybe two to get the job done.  When I returned home on 7/2 the work was not done.  I called him and he said the rain had pushed his schedule back and he would be out the next day.  He did not show.  I texted him the next day and he promised to be out later that week.  Several phone calls later and he promised to be out that week... on and on for a week.   Then he showed up. Was here for 20 minutes (my petsitter was here), He texted me and asked if the back outlet was live and I said it wasn't working.  He left because he needed power (which had he gone to the door to ask the petsitter, she was told to let him run the power cord through the window to the outlet right above where the work needed to be done.)  Matt said he had already left.  I asked my sitter, and she said she saw him on the back porch looking at the outlet, but he never came to the door or rang the (obnoxious) door bell.  She also said he was here for about 15 minutes and then sat in his truck on the phone for about 10 minutes and then left.  He had laid out about 40 feet of landscape fabric put 6 timbers (bad quality ones) on top of it, left a hammer on top of the fabric and a box of landscape nails on my fire pit.   He also removed some of my pavers at the base of my stairs and put them around the fire pit, but left without moving all the pavers around the pit (as per the quote and conversations) and instead left me with a large area that quickly turned to mud where I had NO MUD before because it was covered with timbers.  I made several phone calls to Matt to try and get an idea of when he would be back. I had an electrician friend come out the very night Matt left to fix the outside outlet. I couldn't get an answer from him whenever I asked about when he was coming out --- that's because he left to go to the Florida Keys with this girlfriend.  I messaged Matt and asked him for a refund because the way he was doing this work was unacceptable and my brother also said it was very poorly handled and he would come and do the work.  Matt said he promised to finish the job for the money I already paid. If I thought it was a good job, then I could pay him the balance, and if not then he would be fine letting the work be done for the 50% paid.  When I asked for a start date, again I received no answer.  He did not answer texts, phone calls, or messages on facebook.  I googled his name and came up with some other people he had also taken money from for deposits or for trucks he sold them (taken deposits and never turned over the truck.)  I sent him a text advising him that I felt he was committing fraud.  He was in Florida at this time and he said he didn't want my money and that I would have it today if he was in town.  Then began the texts and the phone calls to get the refund.  Weeks went by. He promised on two different occasions to bring the deposit to my house.  In the meantime I had the walkway done, and yes, I did use some landscaping fabric, and some of the timbers he left behind.  The nails he left rusted in the rain all summer and the hammer is still here.  Instead of coming by when I said I would be home to bring my deposit back, he came when he knew I wasn't home to get his materials.  I told Matt, the materials I used added up to $23 dollars -- retail... and he claimed to be getting the material wholesale. so he was welcome to deduct that from the deposit.   I have to date not received the deposit, despite numerous texts, emails, phone calls and messages.

United Publishing Group - Eaglesoftwareservices - Matt Williams Morgage Tracers Scam Cape Coral Florida
This company sells you the hype of making $900 per week income potential for tracing those who have a HUD refund coming. For $39.95, you are to receive their software which is nothing but 12 pages of a so-called power of attorney, a tracer letter to send to HUD, a list of HUD lists for each state that you must pay additional monies for, (which they don't tell you) and an offer to buy their training manual for another $27. I requested info from HUD to find out if this was a legit biz and a month later questioned the charge on my cc. Support@eaglesoftwareservices.com responded saying I had a successful download, 2 times. I couldn't believe that was all there was, 12 pages for $40 bucks. I started asking Matt some questions about the business, because I was genuinely interested in doing it and instead of answering me, I started receiving ridiculous emails. When I asked for a refund because they couldn't answer any real questions about the business, Matt started sending me threatening emails, threatening me with his attornies regarding libel and slander. Do not fall prey to this illegitimate scam. Tracers may be real, find out for yourself, but this product won't give you what you need and to say customer service is lacking here would be an understatement. I don't usually threaten my customers when they request something from me, have more questions or don't like the product. I offer a 100% money back refund. Obviously, this company is more worried about getting caught in their fraud than in people. They're worried about one request for a $40 refund. They give a bad name to legitimate internet entrepreneurs. I have all their emails as proof of their unprofessionalism and hostility. I've never seen anything quite like it. They have threatened retaliation just because I didn't find value in their product and they told me I lied. Lied about what I can't figure out. I could buy an entire book for less than $20. $39.95 for 12 pages of nothing is a total rip off! They accuse me for wanting something for nothing. This is their response to my legitimate business questions. This is the response to my refund request copied from my email: Please do not waste our time with false assumptions and lies. Why are you calling the manual ours? We told you initially before you purchased the software and even in the last email we did not even sell it. The manual is not required and we told you this initially and the software states in plain English the manual is not required or needed. So, NO there is nothing needed or required in the manual to do this as you lied and stated. The manual even comes with a 30 day risk free offer. You can not threaten us for a refund when you do not have a valid reason for one. You actually emailed us after you purchased the software a month ago with lies as we looked up in our email records and you was trying to get a refund for no reason. In addition, you said you did not even recognize the charge which was a lie where you was tring to get a refund. You are starting to harrass us. I want to warn you we do not take anyone lightly who falsey slanders or business and will file action against them if we see fit. We never stated we would personally train you so that is a lie you made up as well. ROI is not a required question because we told you initially this is a self-employed position. ROI would be different depending on your contact method and how good you are with communicating with people. A introductory letter is not a required form and we never stated that was part of the software, that is another lie you made up. The contract is the Specific Power Of Attorney form as mentioned 3-4 times already and this in the software as well as the Tracer Found Case form which you can even write a generic contract on. This is 2 forms you lied and stated that was not in the software and we have repeated ourselves more than once now. The software has all the information in that is required to do this as seen below, which you lied and stated it did not. You have not even picked and ordered your state listings that we told you initially that cost and are required and you purchased the software a month ago. You have not even attempted to make this work because you are just trying to a get refund for no reason at all and something for nothing. They never told me they didn't sell a manual and in fact a sales sheet is in their so-called software to order additional training manual. When I asked for a refund again and told them I didn't appreciate their unprofessional tone, this was their reply: We do not feel threatened by you asking for a refund, we feel threaten from your lies which we do have a good lawyer to handle if needed. We gladly give refunds to customers who do not have a successful download and you have that already. We have answered all of your questions even being a month later when you purchased the software in a timely fashion (same day) which is great customer service we offer. We stand by our product and we will not stand for you lieing. None of your claims are specific, they are all generalized, and most of them are lies as we even gave examples in past emails and in this one as seen below. We have every right to defend our company from you lieing, to show proof you are lieing, and file suit against you for falsely slandering our business numerous times if we seek fit to. This looks like the direction you want to go since you are determined to lie as an example is shown below. We will be contacting our lawyer concerning you if needed and will gladly use him if you falsely slander our business to anyone or the public in anyway. There's more. It gets worse and I will have no further contact with them. I suggest you don't either. Who has time for this bologne? Suzie Sacramento, CaliforniaU.S.A.

I received an email in mid December 2013 from an outfit named NCS Legal Group aka ACS stating that I owed a debt and should send them over $700 to settle it or I would be subject to criminal action.First, owing a debt is not criminal--learned that fact in Business Law I & II at university. So, I knew this was suspicious and/or bogus immediately. Next, in any pending legal action in the US or its territories, US registered mail is requried for proper service. Knew this was bogus. Lastly, went to Bing search and discovered a plethora of complaints against this outfit--NCS--stating fraud.I got my latest email from NCS today and signed by Matt Williams. I contacted the following Federal government law enforcement entities: the FBI IC3 unit stating fraud; the US Secret Service and complained of wire fraud by NCS. I then contacted my state's Attorney General's office and filed a fraud complaint against NCS. The FBI and state's attorney general representative both stated that extensive criminal complaint files exist on NCS aka ACS, naming Matt Williams and others as parties.NCS IS A FRAUD, A SCAM--DO NOT SEND THEM DIME ONE. DO THEM A BIG FAVOR AND REPORT THEM TO THE FBI IC3 UNIT AND YOUR STATE'S ATTORNEY GENERAL. They want to deal in the United States legal system, grant their wish.If you are over 50, report NCS aka ACS to AARP. AARP will put these idiots on their scam alert watch list.

Matt Williams dba Williams Landscape Solutions Scam Artist - landscaper who knows exactly what to do to take your money and run Hiddenite North Carolina
Matt Williams, owner of Williams Landscape Solutions, was contracted to start an extensive landscaping contract on 9/18/2015.  The work he was scheduled to complete included the following:   1) stone fireplace 2) 300 sq ft patio 3) 12 yards of mulch 4) bed edging of all beds 5) Hedge trimming of bushes 6) Pergola 7) concrete driveway   Matt indicated the project would take about 4 days but signed the ccontract for it to be completed in 2 weeks, which would have been 10/2/2015. We paid a 50% deposit of $2250 by cashier's check to Matt Williams.  It is now 2/8/16 and the work is incomplete with no materials. The only work Matt has done is the dig out grass, which left a dirt yard.   In the beginning prior to the signing of the contract, Matt was in frequent contact, both by phone and visits to the house to assess the work and recommend different designs. After he received the check, Matt came out a total of two times for a grand total of 2 hours. He came out at the end of October and dug out the driveway, leaving a huge pile of dirt at the end of it. Every time, he was contacted to ask to complete the job, he gave various excuses: weather, family member death, etc.. Most of the time, he just failed to answer the phone or text.  Finally, we posted a negative review on his Facebook page business site, Williams Landscape Solutions, on 12/12/15, to which he responded immediately. He asked for it to be removed and we agreed if he came out to complete the work. He returned on 12/15/15 to dig out the patio, which was a rough removal of grass. The negative review was removed, with the promise he would return the following day. He never returned, leaving our yard torn up, going on 4 months now. His Facebook business page returned online and active, and we left another negative review on it on 2/6.  He had not been returning calls or texts prior to this.  With the second negative review, he responded but refuses to return the money and will not return to complete the job despite, hundreds of messages via text and phone.  As of 2/11/16, he has disconnected his phone number, which is on the back of his truck, business shirts, and on all advertising materials.   We have also discovered he has scammed several other people with similar excuses and similar tactics. This guy is a life long scammer and never had any intention of completing the work. We were told by several other landscapers that the amount of work he agreed to do doesn't even cover materials. He is also a member of forum called NC4x4, where a member paid him to purchase a truck, that he did not deliver. He operates under the name: mw312003.

Guidance Center the Matt Manka Debbie Manka Matt Manka psychologist sleeps with multiple clients and Debbie Manka(Hofer) williams, Arizona
the the story about Guidance Center (Arizona)220 W Grant Ave Williams, AZ 86046 about Matt Manka And Debbie Manka. Matt was the Psychologist who married his patient Debbie and it destroyed their family and kids etc. There is a reason psychologists arent supposed to marry or date their clients. They have ultimate mental/emotional leverage over the patient. Mr. Manka should have considered the well being of her children and family before forcing his agenda agenda onto that family(who i undrstand are millionares). Its a disgrace,the whole story. Manka was even counseling the couple for marriage problems before moving in on the wife.  1) Matt Manka was counseling Debbie Strand )in early to mid 1990s)and her husband Joe Strand in Orland Park for marriage counseling. he had previously counseled another family member thus knew debbie and husband joe were millionares.!!!hmmmmm 2) he suggested to Debbie to counsel her alone and sent hubby to another counselor in the same Orland park counseling complex. Here is where there sexual relationship began as admitted to her sons and daughter years later any denial of this is a lie to protect his license!!!! 3) Joe strand(husband) tried filing an investigation on Matt and basically ran him out of town as the department of ethical standards would eventually catch up with him. (this is why they move around so much) 4) DCFS was called on Debbie twice for violent episodes with daughter in 1998 5) attorney Scott D Sherwin filed for all psyche records and transcripts between Debbie and Matt manka to display to the court the nature of this illegal relationship(mark perks attorney) 5) matt Mankas ex girlfriends and wife came to the Strand home and pleaded with debbie not to trust Matt as he had abused a woman forcibly before in some violent episode,police were called , Debbie was warned by this woman not to marry Matt 6) Police were employed from Orland Park again as Matt had a brawl with another of Debbies male harem in front of the kids,all parties were drunk 7) Debbies own son tried to punch out Matt in objection to their marriage and other issues 8) Police we employed again to the strand house as the son was having a mental breakdown and threatening other with a knife following a drug overdose If anyone doubts any of this use the FOIA (freedom of information act) and file with Orland Park Police to get the records on the Strand household as Debbie and Matt were on watch. it will display to all that want to see it that Matt should have his license revoked once and for all!!!! BLOGS FROM PSYCHOLOGY TODAY MAGAZINE(OTHER VICTIMS)!!!!!!! Submitted by karen butler on March 20, 2010 - 4:19am. Is this Mrs Debbie Manka a goof or what? its so obvious this psychologist abused his position.someone should revoke his license     * reply MathewManka Submitted by Anonymous on May 21, 2010 - 12:12pm. Wow, Mathew Manka did the exact same thing to our family. My mother started seeing him as a patient and he entered into a sexual relationship with her. It destroyed our family as well and had lasting implications that have taken years to work thru. It's a sad situation whent a man like this is still able to practice in his profession and continue to abuse others as he did our family. Was the story about him and his psychopathic tendencies because based on the definition provided, I'd say he's a prime example. * reply Matthew Manka Submitted by Anonymous on July 2, 2010 - 9:44pm. I used to go to matt for counseling, he was never anything other than professional with me. however, I have heard stories that the real person behind the therapist is a real creep to put it niceley. I know that he married his client Debbie. this other relationship he had with his client prior to debbie, did this one go on for several years over a 10 year period while he was married, then divorced. Or is there a third victim? It's really a shame that he had not been held accountable for his behavior. Terribly sad.

i saw an ad on a city job website for a work at home job. I am a stay at home mom and looking for extra income so I thought it was a great idea.I was answered back and told to geo to the job's site. I went to the site and the was a charge. I paid the $29.99 hoping to get training material for the work at home typist job. What I got was one page telling me to place ads on job websites and when I get answers to the ad then I should sent them to my own site(which I had to make) and charge them $29.99 to get the bogus material he gave me. The other page gave me websites to put the ad on. I did put the ads on one job site but when the people answered the ad I told them about the scam and let them see the training material sothey would know that it was true. Two days after I placed the ad he took his ad off. Today his ad is for Processing Mortgage Refunds- Computer Worker. He changed his web page completely and instead of calling it training material he is now calling it software. Just remeber if they make you pay up front to be employed it is not a job.

ACS Legal Group Matt Williams ACS Legal Group Ripped me off $200 dollars. Internet
I received a threatening email at work on tues july 17,2012. In the email it was stated that i was deliquent on an account with Advance Cash Expert. I do not have an account with advance cash expert and it threatened legal action which may result in a judgement and that i will be responsible for all court costs and that it will not go to small claims court but possibly municipal court. I was given two days to pay the total amount due of $670.00. It was signed Matt Williams, Collections Manager.  Needless to say, i was scared. i emailed him back and asked what company this was under and that i didn't have a loan with advance cash expert and he emailed me back saying they have 14 technical evidence to prove that i got the money deposited in my account. he went on to write that the company has a signed contract under my email address , the IP address for the computer i used and my SSN. i emailed this person back saying i don't get paid until 7/20/12 . he wrote back and said that if i paid $370.00, a settlement offer, that the loan is paid in full.  I have financial difficulities and have several on line loans so this sounded legit to me and i was scared to go to court so i agreed to the settlement but told him that if i gave them the full 370 that i wouldn't have enough money for groceries, so he wrote back and told me to pay $200 on 7/20/12 and $170 on 7/27/12 that i would be paid in full.  The instructions were to get a MoneyPak voucher for $200 and send it ASAP with my name, address, phone number and the money pak number, which i did through email. Once i sent the information, the emails stopped, i tried calling the phone number listed on the email and all it is doing is giving me a very quick busy signal. No voice mail or anything. i emailed him again asking if the company is a legitimate company and when i googled the acs legal group name and read some of the statements written, the information is exactly the same as what was said and written.  I feel so foolish that i got scammed out of money that i really needed.  I feel very upset and am fearful to tell my husband because he will be angry because when he got the moneypak card at walgreens, the cashier told him that there are alot of people operating scams and getting money from people using the money pak cards and to be careful.  i did not heed the warning and sent the information to this Matt Williams and now I am out of $200 dollars. I will not send the $170 dollars he is asking for on 7/27/12.

No response back from Matt Williams, Sr. with the NCS Group and now been given a deadline this week to make payment on this debt so court papers will be sent to me at the requested mailing address given to them. Queens New York
I was contacted by email by Mr. Matt Williams, Senior Investigation Officer for NCS Law Group. In the email that I was told they needed my mailing address, because legal charges were already filed against me and they want to confirm my email address, so these legal documents could be sent out to me.  I was told in an earlier email, which was not the case that this legal case against me had been downloaded and sent to my current email address.That wanted a solution to this problem by contacted Matt Williams to see if they could work out me paying off this debt.  I replied to Matt Williams to provide the debtor and and the amount that was owed on this debt.  That he could be reached at (347) 669-8240 from 9 AM EST to 6 PM EST if I had any questions and concerns about this issue or if not suffer the consequences.There was a response back later that same day telling me that same day that agin he needed my mailing address as these legal charges are already filed  and that again they will be sending me the court papers and to get back to me at a different telephone number also in the New York state area.

NCS Law Group Matt Williams MAJOR RIPOFF and a POS to BOOT Natonwide
I received an email from Mr. Matt Williams from NCS Law Group about a supposed debt. When I called the number listed, Mr Williams answered the phone, but would not speak loud enough to be heard. I requested that he speak up twice before I proceeded to tell him that I was not paying a dime for a bogus debt and to remove me from his little scam. He proceeded to hang up on me. I called straight back and got a busy signal. I then called again, he answered but we were disconnected. I then fired off my own email and told him exactly what I thought of his methods and what he could do with them. I demanded that my info be removed from his scam or I would contact my attorney and the law enforcement agency to let them handle it from here. I don't scare easily and I know my debts.

 NCS LAW GROUP SUE WILLIAMS DAVID MILLER, MATT WILLIAMS, LEGALACSUS@GMAIL.COMACSLEGALUSA@GMAIL.COM FINAL NOTIFICATION ON COLLECTIONS or LAWSUIT Internet
  I literally received the exact same email as the previous person. It was worded exactly the same. These individuals have been sending me threatening emails for months now about filing a case against me if I didn't send them money. When I first started receiving the emails in April 2014, I would entertain it with the same questions or concerns any person would have (who are you contacting me on behalf of? How much do I owe? etc). They said they were representing Advance Cash Services for a loan in the amount of $300 which has gone up to $847 and I could settle the debt for $500. I contacted Advance Cash America and they advised they have never heard of NCS nor the individuals representing NCS. They advised they only use one specific collector and NCS is not it and that I should keep record of this fraudulent entity. I also noticed that when I responded to NCS email, I started receiving several random emails from other entities claiming to also be collecting debt for a payday loan. But I will stick to this one company on this report since they are the only ones I still hear from after 5 months and are still claiming to be filing some sort of lawsuit againt me. Below are some of the messages I received from them. If you notice below, they use several different email addresses. That alone should raise alarm. All legit company emails are standardized. Hope this helps someone. I have already been a victim to one fake company.
