[Resolved] Home Security Consultants of America, Inc. — Stole money
Home Security Consultants of America charged me a fully refundable equipment deposit of $385.00 to begin employment (as home security consultant) with their company, but never offered employment or provided a refund of my deposit.
My contact was Brandon Reed, Director of Sales for HSC America - he is not picking up his phone now or answering emails, their website can be found at www.hscamerica.com
I have receipts proving that I sent the money order for $385 to HSC in December 2016 and copy of the independent consultant that was signed with HSC.
The issue was resolved - there was a misunderstanding that was taken care of.

HSC is not a real company, but rather elaborate scam by one man - see evidence below & make your own conclusions. I never got information as to who the owner or management of HSC was - their website says HSC is based out of Denver, but no exact address is listed (where you could come & meet someone). I looked up secretary of state business entities in CO (HSC doesn't exist there!), then I checked secretary of state in MN (where I sent my money) and that's when I learned the truth: https://mblsportal.sos.state.mn.us/Business/SearchDetails?filingGuid=294f22b6-05ad-e611-8166-00155d46d26e
Brandon Reed is the registered agent (CEO) of HSC, he owns HSC and lied about everything. The registered office address listed for HSC is a temporary PO Box Brandon rents at UPS store (#1015), which makes it hard for me and others to find him after I sent him my money order and he kept the money.
It took me 6 months to get my money back - after dozens of hours wasted, threats to file complaints with FTC, FBI (IC3) and a lot of stress! When you call the phone # on HSC website - no one ever picks up or returns your messages; same as Brandon, despite calling him dozens of times over many months, I could never speak with him; he doesn't returns calls, just emails back claiming he's been busy (classic Craigslist scam strategy). Also, he uses many email addresses like these - Brandon Reed
