We are a former long time client of Safeguard Properties who has watched a steady decline in safeguards ethics and fraud. The corruption is complicated and deep so read carefully Mr Greenbaum at the helm has forstered a climate of corruption both inside the company and by its sub contractors in the field the following policy's detail the way it goes down at safeguard 1- safeguard isolates the billing dept off site (there old building ) This makes for a hard break between clients ,contractors and operations employees. They give the billing dept no phone or email capability this is so there is no way to track the fraud i.e. ,, overcharging clients , under paying contractors etc,,, 2 - a thorough top down audit showed that safeguard rotuinely overcharged its clients while under paying it sub contractors. This was done in many ways like ,but not limited to giving clients inflated bids and then paying out only a fraction to sub contractors, hiring poor sub contractors at deflated rates who commit fraud on jobs and simply not paying contractors and billing clients the full bid amounts , 3- safeguard has cut contractors line item billable items to below what it actually cost to complete the said task this has led to legit contractors fleeing while ushering in fraudulent sub contractors Some things we see as common issues Debris clients pay safeguard to remove being rotuinely left behid on jobs , not small amounts of debris tires paint trash thousands of yards of debris clients are billed for this in full while it is not removed. This is a direct result of Mike Greenbaum's poilcys he has cut pricing below what it cost to actually remove debris this is a widespread issue 4 - improper work being done that leads to more damages New roofs with out leaks being tarped over so safeguard can bill for a tarp.

Debris being buried or tossed in the woods in properties Inproper winterzations leading to freeze damage Improperly boarded windows Horrible cleaning and lawn care This is not an isolated problem however it's more of an issue in the north east where garbage disposal cost and labor cost are higher Safeguards lawn/snow dept Mr Greenbaum has directed his staff to play how low will you go in regards to grass cuts,, this has resulted in the pay per cut going so low that the work is not actually being done just pictures looking like the work is being preformed this is nationwide Mike Greenbaum has zero regard for clients, employees or subcontractors his poilcys have led to an environment that actually puts clients in a worse shape then before safeguard got the property Furthermore our Audits have shown that Safeguard repeatedly just did not pay contractors for work preformed when pointed out it was written off as a clerical error ,,, however most sub contractors do not reconcile there weekly checks with what safeguard actually pays any sub who does will see the fraud ,,, this is no clerical error,,, Clients pay for all of the above at full price safeguard under Mike Greenbaum 's leadership has ruined a once good company and left a ton of damage on its wake He needs to go Safeguard needs to be investigated This is just a small sample of how deep the issue is at Safeguard , I have never seen such a fraudulent operation
