U.S. Safety Corp owes me over $1000 for work done last year. The first and biggest of 5 invoices was from 09/07/12, and this invoice is less than 1/2 way paid off. Susan Reef, who controls the finances, keeps making promises to put checks in the mail and the vast majority of the time does not do it, or even communicate about the fact that she failed to keep the promise. The last payments I have received have been for $40. And even these tiny payments seem to be a problem and she won't pay them once a month or regularly. There was never any dispute about the contract work I did for the company. I pointed out that at the rate she is paying that it would be years before the debt was handled and that this was unacceptable. She nevertheless comes up with excuses why she can't even send a $40 check, for months at a time. I consider the promises to pay and the breaking of the promises, plus the over 8 1/2 month old bills with payments dragged out indefinitely to be an unethical business practice.

Debt Collectors

AUTHOR: Larry - ()

I have contracted a couple of debt collection agencies.  Susan, the owner, has come up with wild stories to put them off.  I am amazed at the bold faced statements she makes that she knows aren't true.  She told them (this is the first time this came up) over 1 1/3 years after the work was done that the work I did was deficient.  I asked the simple question, why wasn't any thing said about it when or immediately after the work was done?  Why wait 1 1/3 plus years to bring it up?  And then the lastest I heard from the debt collection agency was that she didn't know of my company.  They same one that she said earlier on did deficient work.  Really?  Unfortunately, the debt collection agencies seem to be put off by these statements and feel these 'contested' matters are difficult to collect on.  I suppose that Susan knows this and that is another shady tactic in her bag of tricks to get out of paying what she owes me.

Legal Threats for filing RipOff Report

AUTHOR: Larry - ()

Susan Reef of US Safety Corporation sent a notice threatening legal action because I filed the Ripoff Report.  She referred to a legal clause in the confidentiality agreement I signed concerning contact with their customers.  This was clearly to prevent myself as a contractor from stealing their clients or working for them directly, but she tried to construe it to mean that I shouldn't report their unethical business practice online.  It is amazing the effort she is putting forth to defend her dishonest business policies.  Apparently, she feels she can spend time and money on legal issues, but can't afford the honest and ethical action of paying off my debt.  There hasn't been any payments in 3 months (last was $40), and she still owes me over $1000 from invoices 10 months old as of this date.
