Fresh Start Risk Management Complaint - Fraudulent credit repair company
ORLANDO, FLORIDA -- Fresh Start Risk Management was supposed to do a credit repair service for myself and my fiance. We paid as expected the $1000 for the service in full at the time of the contract signing. This was all done via email since the company was from out of state like most are. He guaranteed that no more then 7 weeks from that time he would have it taken care of. It has been since December 4,2008 and they have not done the job. Furthermore, they change phone numbers constantly and NEVER return your calls or keep you up to date with the progress of your case. At this point, they do not even have a working phone number to my knowledge. I turned this information into the Florida Better Business Bureau since that is where the company was last located and they closed the file since they could not get the company to respond. In the website http://freshstartriskmanagement.com/ you will notice the Florida Business seal from the State of Florida. You would have thought some record of who, what, where, and when would have been on file for the BBB to follow up with. They did not wait long to close the file. Was like they never even tried. When on the rare occasion I did get through to the person at Fresh Start Risk, he would just keep telling me just a couple more weeks it will be done. I tried cancelling.. knowing he was not going to send money back. I paid by bank check and there was still nothing I could do. BEWARE OF THIS COMPANY... they are FRAUDS. Also, I found out that they operate rather illegally by submitting variations of your name and social security number to the credit bureaus to throw them off to get them to stop reporting negatives on you. I found this out through the contact person because he asked my sister who worked as a mortgage lender, to run a credit check on us to see how things were moving on our credit. He instructed her what to punch in for information. She of course refused stating that was fruadulent. He could very well have chosen a real persons name to attach our SS# to just to pass off the negative credit to and get it removed from us. After all, that is all he cared about.. who he was working on. Forget who he might be hurting in the mean time. AVOID AVOID AVOID FRESH START RISK MANAGEMENT!!!
