Capital Connect and Capital Alarm Scam! Liars and dishonest! Tucson Arizona
When the salesman walked up to me he stated that since our homes were brand new, could he install a brand new alarm system just so their sign would be out front which would give them free marketing. I stated that I am a single parent, had lost my job and couldn't afford the system nor had the credit score to be approved. The gentleman, Lathan Frost, advised me that there is no credit check and he would lower the monthly cost for me. Once inside my home, he called a supervisor and stated they just had to verify I am the homeowner. Then he stated they couldn't find me listed. He asked me to just verify the last 4 of my social, to which I stated I didn't want a credit inquiry. He again assured me they don't check credit. He then confirmed with the person on his phone my last 4. Then he stated they couldn't verify me and they would do it on Monday as this was a Saturday. I never heard from him, and reached out many times. Then recently I noticed they placed a hard credit inquiry on me without my permission. When I contacted them to remove it, they ignored my requests. Don't do business with this company!

Capital Connect Alarm Systems Capital Connect Security is a Scam!! DO BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS UNETHICAL COMPANY!!! Based on Tucson Arizona
DO BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS UNETHICAL COMPANY!!! They dont care about the service they just want your money! I am soo disappointed on this system!!!  I've never had such a bad experience with ANY COMPANY IN MY LIFE and I am over 60!.  I've had the service for less than a year now and the system has worked for 1/3 of the time.  I've had 3 technicians gone to  my house and fix it and it still doesn't work properly.  It's hard to get a Spanish speaking person on the line to help me out and they tell me they will call me back, and they don't call me when they say they will.  I work and don't have time to be chasing anyone around.  I was also told I would get a 2 month credit for the time the system didn't work, but I never got that.  I decided to cancel the system since I was told I had a one year guarantee, now I call to cancel and they tell me I will get charged 80% of what the system is worth!   OK, I would agree if the system worked properly, but it doesn't!  I just spoke to this lady over the phone to explain to her my situation and she laughs at me...  What kind of customer service is this?  It just makes me feel worst.  Ahhh! I thought having an alarm system at my house would bring me peace of mind, but it has been the other way around.  I've had numerous proplems with the system  to name them all, but technicians have gone to fix them and a couple of days later the system is all wacked up.  I can't be calling the technicians every week! !I wouldn't recommend people to this company....  I also didn't like double sided tape for the alarm sensor??? Really?  That cheap?  THIS SYSTEM DOES NOT WORK!!  Very bad customer Sercive!  I do belive they are targeting elderly people!!  Very unprofessional!

Capital Connect Security Predatory Sales, misrepresentation of medical alert, targeting elderly, deception, door-to-door sales, scam Tucson Arizona
DO BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS UNETHICAL COMPANY!!! CAPITAL CONNECT SECURITY is based out of Tuscon, AZ and has door-to-door sales people in 11 the states they do business in. My elderly parents (79 years old) who reside in Austin, TX were interested in a medical alert system since my father has early stages of dementia due to getting sprayed with Agent Orange in Vietnam and is in declining health mentally and physically and wanted a medical alert system for peace-of-mind and to have an ambulance dispatched to their home in case of an emergency. My mother who is Japanese and is his caretaker and wanted a medical alert system that my father could use since he's had a number of health alerts this year. One of Capital Connect Security salesman, Mike Pastino came to their home to discuss their need to a medical alert system and ended up selling them a whole house burglar alarm system with a medical alert pendant.  When my father pushed this medical alert pendant last week the alarm system went off in their home and when the central office called their home to inquire about the nature of the emergency, my parents could not hear anything due to the noise caused by the alarm system going off. It took them many minutes to disarm the alarm by having to unplug the power source. They later called the company and said this is not what they wanted and explained what happened when the medical alert pendant was pushed and wanted to cancel their contract since this is not what they wanted. They were told by the company that they were committed to a 60 month (5 year) agreement paying $45 per month and there was nothing they could do for them other than to have them pay their monthly bill since they signed a contract.  I called Capital Connect Security today to inquire about this I spoke with the Corporate Accounts Manager Jeff Elrey and told him what had occurred and that the salesman miss-represented the solution as a medical alert system as being part of the alarm system. When I looked up the medical pendant on their web site I saw that it is actually a panic alert pendant that activates the alarm system. I told Jeff Elrey that I felt this was a predatory sales targeting the elderly and their company mis-represented my parents about the capabilities of their medical alert solution. Jeff Elrey said there was nothing he could do since my parents signed a 5 year agreement. I asked if I could speak with they salesman Mike Pastino and was told he is no longer with the company and that their Austin sales office was closed and moved to Houston. I asked for the number and address for the Houston sales office and was told it was only one sales manager there and that their sales force goes around the states they do business in for a 6 month period doing door-to-door sales. I asked about sales training and best practices in representing their solutions and was not given a sufficient answer and was told I could not call the Houston sales office since all complaints are handled through the home office in Tuscon, AZ. I asked about the 6 sales complaints listed on the BBB site and he said they did have similar complaints about customers wanted to get out of their agreements as well but were also told the company line that they signed an agreement. Apparently the OWNER- GARET RUSTAND and the company PRESIDENT--TODD JOHNSON don't care whether their sales staff puts the interest of teh company above the interest of their customers and condone PREDATORY SALES PRACTICES TARGETING ELDERLY CITIZENS and are NOT WILLING TO DO THE RIGHT THING and cancel the contract of PEOPLE ON FIXED INCOMES.  I totally believe in home security systems. I have one in my home and in the buildings that I own, but to mis-represent a product as a medical alert system that is actually a panic alert where the audible alarm is set off and is so loud that the central office calling cannot even talk with the person who is experiencing a medical emergency is unthinkable, is bogus and is a total misrepresentation that can and will affect the lives of the elderly and sick who thought they had purchased a medical alert system.DO BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS UNETHICAL COMPANY!!!

GE Capital Retail Pay Pal Smart Connect GE Money Bank, GE Capital Retail Money Bank, GE Capital Retail Bank & the new name Synchrony Bank! FOUND OUT WHERE YOUR MONEY IS Nationwide
This is what I was told today June 29, 2014 by Missy in Arizona GE Capital Retail Pay Pal Smart Connect when I called to find out why ever since the Pay Pal Site has changed I cannot look at my statements from GE Capital Retail Bank Pay Pal. I also asked her why if I have a credit limit of $1,600.00 how can my available credit be $1,581.00 available. She informed me that she would connect me to Pay Pal so she connected me to Jason in India if you can believe that is his real name? I don't too many Jason's over there in India, the time in India was June 30, 2014 approximately 6:50 am. I have an outstanding balance of $18.38 that needs to be paid before my available credit can amount to $1,600.00. If you take $1,581.00 & add $18.38 you get $1,599.38. Really? So when Missy from Arizona connected me to Jason in India & I asked what Planet do they get there math from? There is a difference of 62 cents. If you take $1,581.00 add $18.38 & 62 cents you get $1,600.00. Jason informed me that THE SYSTEM doesn't accecpt the DECIMAL & once I pay the $18.38 it will equal $1,600.00. Then when I told him that that must be what has happened to all those overpayments of one cent, two cents, three cents etc., must have gone to.  They went to The Decimal Zone where the Illusive Phantom lives never to be seen again! So he offers to credit my account I tell him I have NO IDEA how much money you owe me & to stop trying to pay people money just to get them to drop the matter I told him FIX IT! I also told him that if you take all those one cent two cents etc. & add them up by the millions you get lots & lots of Illegal Money, then I was promptly disconnected this happens all the time. Why do they want to pay you more then you are complaining about just to get you to drop it. In my opinion this is Bribery I want it FIXED! Maybe the reason it is not fixed is because they can't fix it!Are any of our STATE & FEDERAL AGENCIES paying attention to this MESS that just keeps getting messier by the minute? I myself don't think they are. This is so unbelievable & so ridiculous not to mention outragious & stupid that there is no name in any dictionary on this planet that could describe what is going on here. You know they really need to pay that Phantom some serious overtime here either that or this Phantom is the most stupid Phantom there is out in Space who only visits earth when phoned by Pay Pal & GE Capital Retail Bank now Synchrony Bank. This new name Synchrony Bank in the dictionary here on The Planet Earth is defined as:The duo's gravity puts them in a synchronous orbit, which means they face each other with the same side all the time.  Normally, brain activity is synchronous across this circuit's three regions  I think they chose this name for this last definition of the word. The names changed GE Capital Retail Bank, GE Capital Retail Money Bank & GE Money Bank are the three regions. In my opinion this new name is just that a name to get away from all the other names they have had. If they were really truly sorry as they state in writing on sites such as this then why do they just keep doing the same thing over and over and over again under all these different names? I think they have been doing so many Illegal Activities for so long they forgot how to do anything honest! Plus I don't think there is one single person that can actually tell the truth at any of these different company names this Corrupt & Evil corporation has had. I would not want to be the bookkeeper or accountant for this corporation (The Three) it would be an absolute Nightmare to figure out anything here an absolute Nightmare & they are allowed to continue doing business even with all the Illegal Activities they have been caught in. Why? Why are they allowed to change there name continuously & allowed to do business in this manner? This is so undescribabale that someone somewhere higher up in our state or federal government or both on this planet is getting a piece of the action that is what I think. Crooks the lot of them!

GE Capital Paypal Smart Connect Misleading Customer Service Abusive $35 late fees charged when current Orlando, Florida
Be wary of GE Capital especially the Paypal Smart Connect.  If you pay your bill too early for the next month because you are going into the hospital, you will still be charged a late charge.  Even if GE Capital customer service tells you that you won't be charged a late charge, don't believe them.  Either their customer service department is not trained or they are trained to mislead and get more $35 late fees.  My entire balance at this point is just late fees that I continue to get charged.  I was told to pay an amount to cover the October and November bill.  I did but was still charged a $35 late fee on a supposed $41 payment.  I wonder how much they earn on all those $35 payments.  They should be ashamed.  On top of that, it took 6 months to start getting a paper statement instead of online that I could not access.  It took 6 months and 3 phone calls.  Unacceptable.  I wrote them a letter, no response.  Today I sent them an email, we will see.  If I get no response, I will file a complaint with the attorney generals office.

GE CAPITAL RETAIL PAY PAL GE Money Bank, GE Capital Retail Money Bank GE Capital Retail Bank Pay Pal Smart Connect Pay Pal Synchrony Bank WARNING DISCEASE NO CURE Nationwide
You will find attached six documents all from The Big Three now known as The Big Four. Why our state & federal governments allow this corporation to conduct Illegal Buisness Practices allow them to change there name several times is beyond me.   Why The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau was created your guess is as good as mine.  This is the most useless & clueless government agency that has ever existed that we tax payers are paying for.  This agency is so Clueless that a couple of months ago I posted a complaint on there website about them.  They sent me an email told me they would get in contact with the company & get back to me. What?   They also closed several complaints on many different types of laws that The Big Four have broken according to what is listed on state & government websites.  They actually sent one of my many complaints about The Big Three to a company not listed in any of several complaints!   This is the first time I have made a payment online with my Pay Pal Balance & I just can't believe what I have been sent by The Big Four.  You can read the documents & make your own decision.   I usually mail in my payments & sometimes I put one penny or two pennies etc., more then the actual amount owed. I have never received on any paper statement on any of these overpayments credited to my account. Where all those one penny two pennies three pennies etc., go is beyond me. But if you take one penny for every single person that has an account with any store along with this bank & add up all those pennies you get Millions who knows maybe Billions at this rate.    What made this even worse is that I have called The Big Three now The Big Four several times about what is stated online in my account & all I get is Crap & nothing makes sense.  Not only do I get NOWHERE with the people who answer the phone in India, Asia, South America, The Philippines  & Tin Buck Two.  When I asked to be connected to someone in the United States one person puts me on hold then I get disconnected have to call back & go through all the crap dialing the number putting in my pass codes etc., several times I'm finally told by a woman in India that they can't transfer me to The United State that I have to keep calling until I get someone in The United States!  This was at 2:10 pm time in The United States! Another important note is that my AVAILABLE CREDIT HAS ALWAYS BEEN $1600.00 when I do not owe money. But as you can see here it only goes to $1599.00!

If you sale on EBAY you better look at your financial records. I found out that my net profit is less then is reported by Pay Pal EBAY & GE Capital Retail Bank account. In your Transaction Details they state in one column a lesser amount but then they put a larger amount as your Net Profit. Example If you take $91.96 which is the net that they document in your Transaction Details & your actual net is $82.25 that makes a difference of $9.71. Please look at the attached document.  Basically you made more profit then you actually did. So you get screwed if your a business that sales on EBAY. You are claiming more then you should. My, my how creative they are getting WoW!Totally disgusting. In retaliation they have charged me $35.00 in late fees (illegally) & not the $25.00 late fee that they used to charge me (illegally.) My account balance is not high enough for them to charge me a late fee of $35.00. They started doing this last year & continue to do so. Plus someone at Pay Pal went into my credit report to look at it. When I called & asked them why? They stated that they didn't. Strange really then why would their name Pay Pal be listed in my credit report? I sure as hell didn't put them in!

I just "invested" with a company that calls itself Home Business Capital, LLC aka M Management Group, that says it is an affiliate of Direct Connect Communications. Some of the same persons that the fellow who wrote a report on this company also contacted me i.e. Dave Johnson and his associate Summer Piper. He did ask for a lot more money that the initial now 333.00 fee and I did "go for it". Now I am royally concerned that I too may have been scammed by them, but I hope not as I just signed up a few days ago. But thanks for the late for me (I think) tip. I did look here a few days before and did not see this report.

  Scam: I was given a name of Rich Cocovich of Global Star Capital of Hilton Head island, SC. After I paid him $10000 (wire transfer) he was to locate the funds for my project.  Mr. Cocovich then referred me to Convergex Carribbean, Ltd. in Prince Frederick, Maryland. I then was to pay DJ Callender $25000 (wire transfer) to locate me the investor to fund my project. I paid both of these fee’s and Mr. Callender then forwarded me to The Signature Group out of Nashville, Tenn., where they wanted another $15000 upfront fee. On the official record this company dissolved 8/13/2013 and I was sent over to this company around 3 days later.   These people are real good at this. Rich is the best at selling this, he seems to know what you want to hear and he will say it.  I just want to say to anyone reading this before doing business with anybody please check  with the secretary of state/ Corporation Commission of the state where they do business because if they are not registered do not do business with them. In this case none of these companies are currently registered.

 I was a new business trying to get started and I got connected to Rich Cocovich. He is a good salesman. He gets you hook,line and sinker.  This guy is nothing but full of crap. This is a multi level little scam that he has going once you pay him his $9995 fee (just for reference he stays under the $10000 law that banks have to declare the deposit). This should have been the first clue. Then he claims that he will connect you to someone that will get you the funds, but this is his partner in crime. The next step is even more expensive then the first. The company he dealt with for me was Convergex Caribbean, they are in Prince Frederick, Maryland. Then they get there fee ($25000) then he sends you to another company out of Tennesee, The Signature Group who gets a fee of $15000. I woke up after the 2nd fee. I ask people to do just one thing before gettting into these Ripoff places call the corporation commission of the state that the business is located in, if they are not registered then they are nothing but a scam.

GE Capital Retail Money Bank & Pay Pal Smart Connect can put your account Overdue one to two days before it is due. They pick up the mail when they feel like it. This is how they make their billions Illegally. If you are not smart enough to go into your Pay Pal Account & Copy & Paste what they put in & take out then you are totally screwed. What they due is they go into your account mark Overdue then charge a late fee of $25.00 to $35.00 because they didn't get your payment until after 5:00 pm on the 5th remember they pick the mail up when they want. When they put your account as Overdue they already know they are going to charge late fees. You need to go in copy & paste your account for evidence. You need to do this to show that they actually did put your account Overdue & they did charge you a late fee because they will act like nothing happened & remove this off your account as though nothing ever happened its your word against theirs. I don't know when the Blue Moon will show up or how many centuries before it does again but that is how long you will have to wait to get a late fee taken off. What ever you do do not hold your breath if you do you will suffocate to death. If you do manage to get it taken off your lucky. Remember they are evil & vile & the only thing they are interested in is MONEY.   So, if you send your payment in by Express Mail, Overnight or Certified Mail etc., they pick the mail up when they want & could care less about when it got there or how it got there. By putting your account overdue before it is they are letting you know that no matter how you send your payment they are going to charge you a late fee, otherwise why would they put it Overdue a day or more & enforce the late fee?  Evil Crooks & they don't care who you are or what you are they will get there money no matter what! The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau gets mail forwarded to them from The Department of Financial Institutions, The Federal Trade Commission, The Department of Justice & The Office of the Comp Controller forwarded to what I like to refer to as The Confused Financial Pissonyou Bureau this agency is so clueless they actually send complaints to companies that are not mentioned anywhere in your complaint plus they don't know what respond means. They can't read nor answer emails etc., they do nothing there has been no crime committed imagine that! Just what the hellll are we spending our tax dollars on? This is how Pay Pal & GE Capital Retail have been able to abuse, falsify, steal, cheat, lie  be fraudulant amongst other things to get away with this type of unethical illegal activity of raping the consumer for monies & their rights illegally Disgusting. The only thing you need to know to get hired is LIE & STEAL & cover your ASSSSS. I will be attaching a copy & paste from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau which covers 20 different incidences & this is what I got.  Remember all of the government state & federal agencies that I sent my complaints to Forwarded them to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau who in turn did this! Enjoy your reading. While your at it go online & look at the laws & rules that are written to protect us. Not only are they going to continue to get away with it all those violations of the law don't exist when it comes to Pay Pal & GE Capital. Facts yes facts, they can charge you late fees illegally, hide money here take it from there not credit all of your payments when payment is overdue put your account Overdue a day or more before it is actually due, can take interest charges and hide them, go into your account and play with it just to deny they were ever in your account, take more money out of your bank account then lie about how much they took out even when you have the actual bank transaction, take a debt cancelation fee & make it into a card security fee & deny they ever did. These are just a few of the things that have happened to me, there is more. I have spent time & money to get this taken care of & now nothing will be done about anything that these Vile & Evil in bed with each other corporations have done & continue to do will continue to get away with Rape of the consumer compliments of our government. There is one thing that the Confused Financial Pissonyou Bureau did do that was I think intelligent was that this is not signed & I can understand why I would not put my name on anything as outragious as this & stupid!

Capital Billing Services Attempting to Collect Phantom Debt, Beware! Los Angeles California
On August 28, 2015, I received a letter in the mail from Capital Billing Service saying I owed $1,048 for a Readers Subscription Service. This was news to me. I have never used, nor seen an invoice, bill, or notice(s) of default from this company. My credit is pristine, and I pay all my bills. I called the number provided and had to leave a voice message. They did call me back later that day, saying I committed to buying some magazines in 2012 (I made two payments with a credit card and then defaulted, ya ya ya). After reading the EXACT SAME STORY over and over again on RipOff Report, this is clearly an organized and illegal scheme. I asked for the contact information to Readers Subscription Services, and they only provided me with a phone number (866-936-3726). I've tried calling twice, and they refuse to talk to me regarding this account.  As is my right, I filed a dispute and initiated an investigation with Capital Billing Services to provide with me detailed information regarding their company and Readers Subscription Service, as well as detailed receipts and invoices (you know, proof) regarding this debt. The legal burden is on them to provide proof the debt is real. If they are unable to, I will be contacting an attorney.  I have filed an FTC complaint on Readers Subscription Service, as well as a CA Attorney General complaint on Capital Billing Service. I don't know if there's any way out of this, but I will put up a fight.

Walmart Connect ripoff Jacksonville Florida
On Dec. 4th, 2003, I called Customer Service at Walmart to cancel my internet service. I received an individual who was not very well versed in the English languarge and told him I wanted to cancel my IP with them when my months service was up, which would be Dec. 13. He said I wouldn't be billed again, and that they would like to give me one free month's service, in addition to the nine days I had left. I had trouble setting up my new IP, so I did it on-line through walmart connect since I was led to believe I would have it for the nine days, plus one month left. The last time I used wmconnect was on Dec. 5th, never after getting my new internet carrier. I did not get billed for December, but today I checked on my internet banking to see that they had taken one month's service out again. I called this morning to see why and they told me that since I used the service after I called and cancelled, even though they told me I was paid until the 13th of Dec., plus the free month, that voided the cancellation. Nothing I said, even to the Supervisor helped. She said that's the instructions they had to go by. I am on Social Security Disability and have a minimal check each month, and their charge caused me to have an overdraft, which will cost me $30. I told this to the Supervisor, Christine and she said she had her rules to go by and they wouldn't change it. David Bushnell, FloridaU.S.A.

I did not read the agreement because my banker explained to me that there would be no other charges and if the machine breaks down they would take care of it and there will be no other charges. The machine broke down and they told me I have to pay $60.00 to get a replacement. I told them to close my account and they told me I have a contract for 2 years and I have to pay about $750.00. I went to the US bank branch and they told me they will check and come back to me but it has been 1 week and they have not called me yet.  I  made a deal with another bank and I bought the same type of machine for $90.00 which I will own and I do not have to pay any rental charges. I mailed the machine which I got from Ladco to their office in California.

OAN Services, Nationwide Connect, ripoff Internet
We were charged $4.75 on our Sprint service bill for an operator-assisted call from Greenwood, Indiana. When I called to dispute the charge, the woman said the call was made from a pay phone that they provide services for. She promptly agreed to give us a credit. They tried to scam us a few months ago and I filed a rip-off report. Lisa Mansfield, OhioU.S.A.

WalMart Connect AOL ripoff Pa Pa
Ripped Off by WalMart Connect. I was charged within days for what was supposed to be a FREE trial. Now I can not get it cancelled. The middle eastern people that answer the phones are really good at avoiding what you want done. I asked to speak to a supervisor but the voice was exactly the same but gave a different name. I will be billed again if I can't stop the charge some way it has to be done on a certain day I think it is the day after your subscription ends. And they have my charge card number. I am reporting this to BBB AOL WalMart Corp offices and internet communications. Since it is through a phone line I will contact FCC and my attorney. This is fraud and someone should be able to help us. Please post any good ways to stop this. Also has anyone experienced more spam and intrusion attempts since signing up. My Norton Internet Security is working overtime. Steamed South, AlabamaU.S.A.

Walmart Connect Charged monthly bill after canceling Internet
Charged monthly bill after canceling. Would not give a refund. Would not let me speak to a supervisor. I canceled this service in February. Instead of canceling the service they gave me a free month and billed my credit card the following month without me telling them to. I told them to cancel it. They said the service would end in 14 days from my call. We had AOL also and didnt need both suppliers. I had not used the service since January. They were not nice people to deal with. They argued with everything I said and kept me on the phone for 40 minutes. The longer they argued the madder i got. I finally had to hang up very dissatisfied. I hope no one has to go through what i went through. It was their mistake for not canceling the service in the first place and I had to pay for their mistake and they didnt care at all. I spoke to the company twice and really had a hard time understanding their language both times. Donna Jefferson, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Grant Connect Fraudulent / Government Grant Scam Nevada
Ripoff Report Verified Safe I saw this webstie on facebook and i got curious and wanted to try if it is legit or not and they wanted to send a free Government Grant CD, and the only charge was for shipping and handling. That was a $2.78 charge. I have now been waiting 1 week for this CD only to find that they charged $39.95 more on my card without consent(used it on a private sports club/ private golf club). I still have not received any information or the CD, and I have put a stop payment and reported a dispute about this charges so they cannot put any further charges on my card. On top of all that they have a dummy line set up so you cannot reach anyone live, just a recording stating, Due to high call volume we cannot answer the line. Please leave your information and someone will get back to you. Hopefully these scammers will get what they deserve. Word to the wise, always do your research before giving out information freely on the internet!! I know I have learned my lesson. Luckily I caught it in time before they started to really rack up a bill. Thanks to Capital One for their fast action and sending me an email regarding this fraudulent activity on my card. Rhyan m. Plainfield, IllinoisU.S.A.
