Minimax Consulting Complaints & Reviews

Minimax Consulting / Scam artist

Mo
Sep 27, 2011

I paid these complete and total ###s over $3000 and I had an experience similar to that which I am reading here. It should have been a red flag to me, or anyone that considers hiring Minimax, that they will not take credit cards or PayPal. They will only take money orders, wire transfers, etc… because they know that there is little or no recourse. It is nearly impossible to get your money back. At least with a credit card or PayPal you can file a complaint to get your money back. I did find a website for a man named Patrick Lynch who is the Attorney General in Rhode Island. Apparently...

Minimax Consulting / Fraud

I paid more than $1, 500, and have waited for more than 3 months. I keep emailing them so much, but now they just ignored me. Since I am an international student, who is not fluent in English. They just abuse this point. How can I report to the police or how can I refund my money?

Minimax Consulting / Search engines too revealing

MCG, very recently known as Minimax Consulting -- so you guys wimped out from all the painful truths about yourselves and decided to change your name. Electronic footprints are difficult to erase these days, however. I think you may have spent your time and money for nothing. Oh my gosh, what irony! Now you're in the same position as all the trusting souls you defrauded.

Minimax Consulting / Absolute fraud

You are hereby forewarned. This is an absolute FRAUD. Minimax Consulting = MCG International = MCG-Site.com They claim to have top notch "Analysts" and Statistical Consultatns who will review and complete your work but when you ask them to complete any work involving the skills of someone with better than a fifth grade education they simply shut down and never respond. They don't even know simple concepts in statistics. I spent more than $3, 000 and got crap in return. They don't consult with you and they LIE, LIE, LIE. The funny thing is they asked me to send a check for $1, 800...

Minimax Consulting / Avoid them like a plague

Ch

As an editor who specializes in academic writing I responded to a craigslist posting seeking editors. The pay was very low; in response to my query I received a form letter telling me I would be required to do the first dissertation for free. If I did well enough I might have to do a second one for free. Since any outfit asking me to work for no pay raises an alarm, I googled and found an inordinately high number of writers who complained they were turned away after doing their "sample" work. Also, it appears they keep upwards of 90 percent of their fee. Hence, your dissertation is edited by...

Minimax Consulting / Minimax screwed me and countless others

Wa

Minimax Consulting will not send you statistical output that can be replicated -- an inherent part of the scientific method. They will not supply you with the most fundamental information about the procedures they followed: what stats package was used and the version, sample observations used, how they handled missing and outlier data, if the data had to be transformed and how, any randomization or jackknifing done, no CIs reported for any test statistic, no graphical output, whatsoever. When you request verification, PattiLou Normand will claim repeatedly that they have met all contractual...

Minimax Consulting - Rhode Island, Providence / Poor Service

We

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY it is nothing but a scam. Today is May 2010 and they are still hooking us folks trying to get tutoring and editing support for college works. They will arm twist you to pay upfront, take your hard money and run, will ignore you, and you will never hear a peep out of them. People please stop using this company, they are a deceptive business to say the least. Learn from all the rest of us suckers that used them. We never got a dime of out money back and we never gor a pitch of the service. Also know that in RI you can take a company like this to small claims court but it is h to run them down and get the financial judgement awarded to you by the court. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY.

Minimax Consulting / Minimax's statistical consulting was very bad

Ud

Minimax's statistical consulting was very bad. They make it seem like they are very knowledgeable, but if you ask more questions, the whole facade crumbles. I was using a model that they recommended. By the end of the process, I knew more about this technique than they did, and was shocked at how poorly they had advised me. They never looked at how well the model fit, they didn't care. I ended up having to redo the entire empirical analysis due to huge errors on their part. Do not use them if you care about the reliability of your empirical research. They will always have an...

Minimax Consulting / Do not support this busines

Ov

I contacted Minimax when I was desperate to complete my statistical analysis. Although I was told that the analysis could be completed within a two week period, I received a very basic and unprofessional type document six weeks later. At that point I had missed deadlines with my committee. Further the organization never took my calls and I was never provided basic customer service in terms of follow-up, etc. However, I did receive a courtesy call late April requesting additional money. Please do not use this service. I am currently in the process of trying to retieve funds. Do not support this business.

Minimax Consulting / Do not ever send them money

Or

Baron Gati did the "bait and switch" -- promising and sounding legitimate... I paid $2000 for the whole dissertation to be edited...It never happened...DON'T EVER SEND THEM MONEY...It is equivalent to getting a lighter and just burning it. You think they are working on your stuff, you get it back, and nothing has been done.Baron who is the "deal-maker" (sociopath) inspires your confidence, collects the money, and then when you need some answers he is transferred to another part of the company. It is so dishonest. It is hard to believe. I am going to report them to the AG in Rhode Island...what a scam.

Minimax Consulting - Texas / Data falsification

Fi

I agree with all of the other comments. These people are criminals. They will high pressure you to seal the deal and get your hard-earned money, lie to you for months about processing your work, then once you threaten them with legal action or demand return of funds, they will deliver a worthless, incomplete, totally spurious document that might as well have arrived on a cardboard roll beside a toilet. Heather Thompson is a major horse's ###, too. Don't even bother dealing with that hoser. Oh, and the real owner: Peter W. Chabot, a convicted felon. Google him for results. Contact the...

Minimax Consulting / Not worth paying for

Cr

Minimax Consulting is definitely NOT WORTH PAYING FOR. I guess I can't call them a scam because they did send me a paper. However, I would say the writer's academic level of writing only deserved a C-. (That is the grade I received). Upon receiving the paper, I had a friend intensely revise it for me. It contained numerous spelling errors and typos. When I suggested to the writer that some revisions should be made because certain words were not used in the correct context, the writer reputed my opinion and told the 'info support' people that I am saying this because of my...

Minimax Consulting / Big liars

Cr

My experience with them was horrible.STAY AWAY FROM THEM if you care for your money, dissertation and committee!!!
