Romodel USA , District Heights, MD. Complaint - Unauthorized credit checks

Review by robmia on 2010-12-03
DISTRICT HEIGHTS, MARYLAND -- This is a very sneaky company. They will run your credit if you simply call them. I had called this company a month ago to get information on a sun room addition. After listening to a long sales pitch, the salesman told me they couldn't give any pricing information withi=out sending a representative to the house. I found bad ratings on the internet later and decided to cancel the appmnt with the representative A month later we found a contractor and decided to refinance our home to pay for the new addition. During the refinancing, our banking officer had notified us the Remodel USA had pulled our credit history. NEVER once in our short conversations did they ask any permission to run our credit. Most important, I'm still wondering how they got the personal information to run the credit check. They only info they had was name and address. I called and raised hell. The ceo was very rude and claimed that they have every legal right to do this because the law state's that "if a person shows interest in doing business" , that this allows them to run credit checks. This is a crying shame in todays day and age. We as consumers are being constantly violated and this is just wrong !

What information did you give them? You had to have given them something that allowed them to run your credit. Did you give them your SS#? It doesn't make it right, but you have to be smart of the info you give out.
