Stainsafe Informative - FRAUD

Review by gonopolsky on 2006-08-16
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- I have also had problems, with Levitz and Stainsafe. I filed a small claims action in Florida. I live in California. I was able to get a flight for $198 round trip Oakland to Fort Lauderdale.

Stainsafe is trying to settle, because as they put it it would be cheaper to settle than litigate.. I have told them they should have sent out a technician.

I tried to sue them in California, however they are operating with a suspended license hence no agent to serve the papers. This is illegal so I contacted the Attorney General

Dont give up. I have contacted the DCA california and Florida as well as the BBB in both states.

they are liars and thieves and should be held accountable

Strange, I would think you should be able to have had them served in FL even if you are suing in CA. If they are doing business in CA, even and especially if illegally, then CA seems like appropriate and proper venue.

I tried to sue them in California, and yes they are doing business in California. However the law requires you to serve an agent for process. This means that the corporation has a representative in the state to receive the service for process. Stainsafe has had their license suspended. Their agent sent back my small claims case, stating that they have not been their agent for over 5 years. You can see for yourself on the California Secretary of State web site that their license was suspended. They are operating illegally , however only the attorney general can do anything about it.

thank you to all of you for your support. Stainsafe settled my claim out of court. Thank you again.
