My story with Stanley has an all too common theme with everyone else on Ripoff Report. I signed an agreement with Stanley and his service on 9/28/11 to assist in providing locations for coffee displays that I was going to distribute, which turned out to be a big scam, and I never received.
I pre-paid Stanley and his company $1,200 in good faith to lock in the service as was directed in the agreement. The way his operation works is you pay him an upfront fee to procure his services and in return he refers out your job to his network of locators. Well, that coffee company I was supposedly going to distribute (South Beach Coffee) turned out to be one great big big scam, and I have lost thousands of dollars.
Once I discovered I was scammed by the coffee company, I quickly notified Stanley and advised him that I obviously would not be in need of his services and requested that I get the refund that was outlined in the agreement, as no work of any kind was done by his company on my behalf. The MASTER snake oil salesman, Stanley could not get off the phone quick enough and promised to call me back. He never did.
I have notified him of my request for a refund via email,fax and certified mail. He has ignored each and every communication. This guy will answer the phone when you are interested in his business, but ignores the calls when a hint of a problem is certain. Now I'm being scammed by Stanley.
According to the contract that I entered into with Mr. Lewis, refunds won't be honored once work commences on a project. Up to this point (just shy of 1 month), no work has been done on my
assignment, so I demanded a refund of my deposit money. My requests have been ignored. I am fully prepared to handle this through the courts. JUDGE JUDY here we come! I am also prepared to make every scam website aware of this individual and the way he conducts business. Stanley,you have my undivided attention.
Mr. Lewis is in breach of his own contract. As someone said in an earlier complaint, this guy is a gypsy. If you have ever watched old western movies that includes the old magic elixir/snake oil peddler, you have officially met Stanley Lewis of A1-Best Locators.
