[Resolved] Frank Lamark or Frank M. Lamark / Frank Lamark defrauded me
Frank Lamark "aka" Frank M. Lamark "or" Frank Michael Lamark defrauded me. I sent him the money months ago and I didn't receive the cabinets (thousands of $$$), he apparently got tired of me asking for my cabinets and stopped answering my emails then it got real (real) quiet.
I got suspicious and started doing Google searches for him using different search terms to find out more. I used "Frank Lamark Mugshot" and found his Police mugshot picture at the Naperville Patch. With more searches using other terms I found other negative information about him, try "Frank Lamark Fraud", that's is a doosey! When the light finally came on and I realized who he "really" was, it was like being punched in the stomach. I gave up hope of ever receiving my cabinets.
I found out he tries to clog the Google search results with nonsensical listings at other sites, forum memberships with text links to his Cabinets Direct RTA web site plus many of free listings with sites like people pond, listal, company pond, manta, merchant circle and the list goes on. All for the purpose of trying to push his cabinet website up on the search result listings while trying to push the bad complaints about him down on the list.
Problem is... the longer Frank Lamark defrauds consumers, the more the complaints will get racked up, and the more his other "damage control" pages (like he's posted at this site), or the multiple profile he puts out there will be buried, so that's a plus for the future.
There will come a day when the authorities whether Federal, State or MasterCard/Visa will want to meet him up front and personal. The glory in that is we all know (even Frank knows) eventually it will all catch up with him and he'll do more jail time - sharing his tiny prison cell with a big angry hairy dude named Tyrone. We on the other hand will have eventually finished our kitchen remodels, continued our lives, and he'll fade away in our memories.
So, if you bought cabinets from Frank Lamark you can expect nothing but heartaches and sleepless nights, that's what I got out of it. The best you can do in this case whether you get the full amount from your CC company or not is to file an online complaint (with a site like the one here), send an email to the Illinois State Attorney General, and finally spread the word about this fraud far and wide.
Don't take it bent over with Frank at the helm (if you will). Do more research on him then get the word out with posts about your experience with him and his cabinet website and include links to the online stuff you find out about him. Me writing what happened in my particular case along with my recommendations is my personal justice and I hope I saved a few of you from the grief.
I'll post it here later on, have a nice day.
