Smith, Dean & Associates; AKA Dean & Associates VINCENT DEAN AT SMITH, DEAN AND ASSOCIATES IS A LIAR AND WILL STOP AT NOTHING TO GET WHAT HE WANTS Jacksonville Florida
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Dean Smith & Assoc is now Simmons Smith & Assoc
My husband picked up the phone during the tail end of this message. Bearing in mind my husband is actually a 3rd party, which made this whole episode illegal, a man who said he was Vincent Davis claimed he plays golf with the judge, they were going to make an example out of me, and E-Z Payday had secured Federal funds to prosecute me.
I called the State Attorney's Office and was told the following: when E-Z Payday accepted my check, agreeing to hold it, my check then became a Promissory Note. It is not a felony, I cannot be prosecuted for it, and if they want to pursue the matter in Civil Court, they certainly may.
I then did a reverse phone lookup and found Smith, Dean and Associates has the same address as United Processing. Somehow this did not surprise me.
I called Mr. Davis and advised him exactly which office I spoke to and which attorney; he said, "Great." When I read the statute to him, he said, "Oh, you're a deadbeat, you don't want to pay your bills." When I stated this was not the case, he said it again and hung up.
DON'T FALL FOR IT!!! Call your local State Attorney's Office if you get a phone call like this!!! These sharks must be stopped!
