Commercial Investigations / Fraud and scam
Mysery loves company! However if there is enough of us that Commercial Investigations have stung, then let's band together and get them. Mariah of Commercial Investigations would tell me one thing and then another. This caused my suspicion in the beginning. Telling me that one of my past due clients was bragging on himself for getting over on me. I thought that seemed a bit of a stretch. I think they do this to get an emotional call to action out of us. They were successful in getting 3 of my past due receipts paid which I found out later they also attached a fee to. They are not only collection the 25%, but also a fee they charge to the debtor. I also paid them $750.00 to start litigation on three other cases. They string this litigation deal out like a nice carrot. That's when I was more convinced this might be a scam. Any Lawyer working for $750.00 for any case is not believable, but since they had collected quite a bit I felt I was ahead of the game. Again 2nd con here. They have (Maryanne) repeatedly come up with one excuse after another why they have not paid the money to us. Our clients have paid them plus a fee.They have collected or scammed our past due clients for $10, 000 plus. They also took the money from us to produce what they said would be litigation to chase other accounts.
I have also two former past due clients that will testify against them about the harassment and also paying the extra fee. I will be contacting Greg Askay of the Ventura County DA and also the FBI since Commercial Investigations appears to be working outside from state to state. FBI will be very interested in this case.
The worst part about this is, that I did not want to chase down all my clients. We are in difficult times. However having Commercial Investigations calling us repeatedly helped the situation along. They made up lies about rudeness about our clients behavior to them. I was lucky enough to engage some of my clients with their story about them. I was so surprised to find out that they were hit with other fees.
If anyone else has similar stories we can not only file criminal charges of fraud against the company, which will bring about jail time for employees as well as the owners who actively engage in the criminal behavior. That includes you Mariah! and also you Maryanne! The criminal complaint will also list you both since I did deal with you.
Anyone else who has names of employees from Commercial Investigations save them!
