EDitor's UPDATE: Positive rating and recognition has been given to Alpha Seven Energy for its full commitment to quality customer service.

Ripoff Report's discussions with Alpha Seven Energy have uncovered an ongoing dedication by the company to total client satisfaction. This means that clients can expect that the company will work towards finding a mutually satisfactory resolution to any concerns. Alpha Seven Energy listens carefully to client concerns and sees them as an opportunity to learn from past mistakes and become more efficient as a company in the services offered and the support for those services.

Alpha Seven Energy's Managing Partner and CEO, Chris Hemsworth, has informed us that his personal philosophy is to ensure that partners are always satisfied with their partnership with Alpha Seven Energy. [continued below]....
..... As a successful businessman, Chris feels that partner satisfaction is critical to the success of the organization. Alpha Seven Energy's Partner Portal was created for this exact reason, keeping the partners up to date with everything that Alpha Seven Energy is doing.

One of the things Ripoff Report learned in the course of its review is that typical customer feedback reads, "Alpha Seven Energy works to communicate all aspects of the partnership and projects in a timely and effective manner. Alpha Seven Energy is always responsive when we reach out to them. Alpha Seven Energy is serious about meeting commitments and keeping to their word."

The information provided in this report below is based on comments made by Tim Jones during an onsite inspection held by a third-party verification company with no biases towards Alpha Seven Energy.

Alpha Seven Energy is a private oil and gas company. Tim Jones stated the following about his company, 'we drill oil wells with the help of our partners. So basically, we raise capital in order to drill oil wells."

Leads for Alpha Seven Energy are primarily obtained through networking, social media, and email marketing campaigns. Mr. Jones stated the following about the sales and services process for Alpha Seven Energy, "typically what would happen is they either fill out a form to request more information or reach out to us directly. And one of our Senior VP’s would reach out to them and explain the projects and give them all of the information that we have on the projects that we work on and you know just go through that information with them step by step. After that, once they have either made a decision to do business with us or not we do have a lot of interaction with them at that point."

Mr. Jones was asked to describe the escalation process for a client who was not satisfied with the level of service they received. He stated the following, "the people who partner with us understand the industry and that things take time. So most of the time they are very flexible. We have had a couple of people call with concerns and things like that so we have a director of partner relationships who takes those calls and walks anyone who is concerned through any of their concerns and makes sure we have answered everything that they need we make sure that we take care of them to the fullest ability right? We have included partners in other projects they weren't included in when they aren’t happy but that is very rare I think it has happened maybe once or twice. So most of the time they will call with a concern and we just take it over the phone and handle it. We have had a couple of partners come in that wanted to have conversations and we always work to make sure they leave very happy and satisfied about where things are."


When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website in correlation with Chris Hemsworth and Alpha Seven Energy Mr. Jones stated the following, "So we had a gentleman who had sold he was a vendor for us who sold us some data to work on. When we paid him he took that check and made fraudulent copies. So he went to the bank with the fake checks that he made and was able to withdraw a considerable amount of money from our account before the bank caught on and gave us a call that there is this guy here and he is using your account number and routing number and he is taking money out of your account. We feel like this is fraudulent because it was either the 5th or 6th time that he had done it. So when the bank called us Chris immediately called the guy that was doing this and the guy said hey listen I am going to go write a report on you guys if you don’t pay me and I don’t remember the amount of money was but he was basically trying to extort money from us. Chris immediately called the police and they came up here and he tried to trap the guy and say he was going to pay him and the guy sent someone else in his stead whom the police questioned. Basically, it was the very next day that he wrote the report on Chris not paying his bills and stuff like that...then another report popped up there about an investor which we knew was fraudulent because we did not have any investors by that name and we additionally did not have any investments or partnerships in the amount. So we knew that one was fraudulent as well. We reached out and asked for any documentation that could prove that he invested and he never responded. And then I think it was 3 or 4 days it was maybe Wednesday of last week we received a call from the detectives that were working that case and they said they were going to issue a warrant for his arrest as they were able to obtain enough evidence that he had been writing fraudulent checks from us."

In order to ensure that clients are receiving the best experience possible Alpha Seven Energy is dedicated to providing clear expectations and communication with their clients. Mr. Jones stated the following, "Internally we have been working on policies and procedures to follow when we bring in vendors and how we pay those vendors just to prevent the possibility of something like that happening again. And most of it has just been very reactive as nothing like that had happened to us before. A lot of it has been just about ways to prevent something like that from happening again. As for our partners and everything goes we feel that the methods we are using now those are working. When they call with an issue or complaint or a question we take those very seriously. In that sense we are very good with our customer's services and a lot of it has come from our checks and balances and making sure we know where our vendors are from and their background and histories and things like that. Unfortunately, before we did anything with this guy we received an email maybe 3 or 4 months before from a guy whom the same individual had done something to and we just didn’t recognize it or hadn’t stored that email in our memories well enough to remember the same guy. So, I think going forward we are going to keep better accounts of people that we know are in the industry doing that type of thing."

Alpha Seven Energy is proud to be a part of Ripoff Reports Corporate Advocacy Business Remediation and Customer Satisfaction Program. Mr. Jones stated the following, "since we signed up for the program we have had a number of conversations where it is highly positive actually because we believe that seeing that an organization whom you don't see a lot of ripoff report trusted I don't believe I have ever seen one outside of the examples that Ed sent in that email. So to me, I am the VP of Marketing here so to me it is a very positive it is definitely positive traction as far as Google goes. I think that when someone googles your name and they see that you are ripoff report trusted vs you have a ripoff report negative action that can go a long way for you especially...and again I didn’t know this before doing the program but the validation that Ripoff Report goes through that you are who you say you are are you doing what you say you are doing an that you are dedicated to customer service. It just validates that even further and makes an even stronger case for hey these guys are trusted by Ripoff Report. It seems definitely gives you an image out there that you are a solid organization and you can be trusted. For us overall I think it is positive. While the experience hasn’t been super fun being in the program is going to be very positive for us."


" We take a very educative a personal approach with our partners. Our main goal is to always be available when partners have questions or concerns. We take a family-like approach with all our partners, ensuring there is always a high level comfort when reaching out to Alpha Seven Energy. Alpha Seven Energy’s team loves where they work.

Not only is the atmosphere in the office one of fun and camaraderie, but our relationship with our partners are solid, too. The leadership is always open to feedback and works with employees to ensure complete employee satisfaction. Chris is truly concerned about every individual in the company and providing solid career paths. "

Alpha Seven Energy Chris Hemsworth Dallas TX


Ripoff Report would like to let readers know that Ripoff Report emailed this customer, so the member business could make things right with them. When a business joins the Corporate Advocacy Program, Ripoff Report emails everyone from the past so the member business can make things right with them. Of course, everything within reason. In order to confirm that the complaints were resolved, Ripoff Report is copied on all responses, so we can insure that the member business did right by their customer. The author of the Ripoff Report below never responded to our offer to help them. The Review below should be ignored.


This review was written by the same person or his affiliates as the other report. The report is known to be false due to the fact that the amounts given in the complaint are not amounts we utilize in our business. Additionally, we do not have any clients with the name used. We have reached out to ask for documentation proving that he is actually a partner. If we receive said proof, we will work with him to find a satisfactory result.



I never received a single revenue check nor did I receive my K9 for my tax bennifits. When I first called Chris asking questions I was told I simply had lost my investment and to leave him alone, then was hung up on. I proceed to call back seveal times and was met with voicemails that went unreturned. I went in person to 2909 Cole Ave #115, Dallas, TX 75204 and was not allowed in the door.

Gerald, we have no record of you as an investor. In fact, we are quite certain you are working with Jim to destroy our reputation. 

1. We do not accept investments in the amount you stated.

#2 General Comment

Call the SEC & FBI Immediately

AUTHOR: Jim - (United States)

If you have invested with this company call the proper authorities. 


These people agreed to buy leads and have a E-Check made and deposited, and are blaming the people they wrote it to for it bouncing. These people are scum. 


BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY IT RINGS A FAMILIAR TUNE. Read the article below where Breitling blames it's clients for it's extravagent spending at strip clubs.

Chris is a thief

AUTHOR: Gerald - (Australia)

Chris is a scam artist. He did the same thing to me, I invested $209,000 and never received any revenue check. i called him and he was extremely rude and told me I lost my investmnet and i should deposit more. I told him that was all the money i had and he told me there was nothing he could do , i should invest more money. He stopped picking up my calls and never returned them. He also never responded to my mails. I had to reach out to a recovery expert jeremywyatt@ to help me recover my money back from him. During the recovery process Chris called to tell me to stop the recovery process, he promised to get me my money which i know he was telling lies. i dint listen to him, i just made sure i recover all my money back from him

Subject: Investor Lead Scam Alert

I just wanted to reach out to some colleges of mine raising capital to share a warning about Guss Rizzo. Guss Rizzo AKA Charles Perry AKA Commodity Investor leads AKA Guss Rizzo investments. This young man is scamming people left and right with fake investor leads and lying about everything they entail. He charged my credit card on a second occasion after sending me replacements that were supposed to be free and blamed someone else. Both sets of leads are complete garbage. This man is a drunk with a drug problem, buyer beware!
