I purchased steaks from Randall Schams (Omega Meats) on June 16, 2010. Randall gave me the same lies that others have already posted. Randall seemed like a nice guy so I trusted him at his word, BIG MISTAKE. Just a few hours after I purchased the steaks I decided to look at them and found that two of my boxes were short one steak each. I called Randall that evening to let him know of the problem, he never returned any of my calls.
I signed on line to see what I could find out about Omega Meats, I was fortunate enough to find all of the comsumer complaints posted. The complaints posted were exactly the stuff that Randall had told me, "these steaks are just like Omaha Steaks", "I was selling to a lady just down the road", "if you are not toally pleased I will come back and retrieve the steaks" on and on... Every word was a lie.
The next morning I contacted Omega Meats in Greensbro and Charlotte, I never got an answear at the Charlotte office but I did speak to a woman in Greensboro. I was promised that customer service would call me right back, they never did.
At this point I knew Omega Meats was just a scam company and notified my bank.
A lady named Kim did eventually speak with me and was of assistance. I told Kim i wanted a refund and she told me to return my steaks to Concord. I wrote Kim and told her I refused to do that, this was a "door to door" sale and I expected them to come and pick up the steaks. I also called the North Carolina Attorney Gererals Office and they were very helpful with lots of information. see below
THE NORTH CRIMINAL CODE STATES THAT IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE COMPANY TO COME AND PICK UP THE PRODUCT FROM YOU AND THAT YOU HAVE THREE BUSINESS DAYS TO CANCEL YOUR ORDER FOR ANY REASON.
YOU SHOULD REFERENCE 14-401.13 IN THE CRIMINAL CODE. OMEGA MEATS IS WELL AWARE OF THIS ...IF YOU NEED TO CALL THE ATTORNEY GENERAL
NC Attorney General 919 716 6400.. I think they are very aware of Omega Meats
To all of the others out there that have been scamed just like me you can beat Omega at there own game.
I did receive a full refund and they did come and pick the meat up, although it was a mightmare dealing with them.
I never did find out where the meat comes from, I would never let my family put anything into there body that came from this company. The boxes say nothing about where the beef is from so you can only guess. The meat is processed in Florida, How many people think of Florida as a meat producer? We have no idea that this meat is even from this country, when something is cheap there is normally a reason. You might want to also reference the internet... the USDA Grade A Stamp on meat means nothing at all. You can find video and stuff confirming this.
I would just say be very careful and Don't belive a word anyone at Omega Meats tells you .
