Service Magic / False promises

1 14023 Denver West ParkwayGolden, CO, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

Based on the endorsement of Service Magic, Inc., we hired their member, the Colorado Radon Institute, for mold & asbestos testing. The owner of Colorado Radon Institute, Michael Merit, came to our apartment and allegedly performed the tests. While collecting samples, he told us we had black mold which could be hazardous to our health. We paid Michael Merit and he cashed the check. However, he failed to provide us with the lab results or respond to our calls, emails or letter.

So, we contacted Service Magic, Inc. and spoke with Harry Patkowski and Tammy Wright. We also emailed the following Service Magic representatives: (1) Co-Chairman, Michael Beaudoin; (2) Co-Chairman, Rodney Rice; (3) CEO, Craig Smith; (4) Senior Vice President, Ty Kasperbauer, ; (5) Senior Vice President, Ryan Sullivan; (6) Senior Vice President, Andy Zurcher; (7) Vice President, Jim Croft; and (8) Vice President, Tom Durant.

Ms. Wright stated Service Magic recommended and endorsed its member, the Colorado Radon Institute and its owner, Michael Merit, after he paid his $99.00 Service Magic fee and passed the "rigorous 10-Point Screening" check in 2007. Ms. Wright guaranteed Service Magic performed a background check for complaints, suspicious business activity, etc. We checked with the BBB and found Michael Merit had complaints filed against him dating back to May 2003, see http://denver.bbb.org/WWWRoot/Report.aspx?site=33&bbb=0885&firm=55000693.

Due to Michael Merit�s shady business practices, he changes company names to avoid being held accountable, see below:

Despite Michael Merit�s suspicious business practices, Service Magic, Inc. accepted the Colorado Radon Institute and Michael Merit as members and have since endorsed and recommended their services, see http://www.servicemagic.com/rated.ColoradoRadonInstitute.12602646.html.

In fact, according to Service Magic�s Contractor Relations Specialist Harry Patkowski, he cannot even get in contact with Service Magic's pre-screened service magic professional Michael Merit. We rated Michael Merit accordingly on Service Magic�s web site and wrote, �BUYER BEWARE!!! Don't hire Service Magic's client, Michael Merit; you must read about them on http://www.concernedconsumers.com/. I gave him one star only because it was required for this submission.�

Nevertheless, Service Magic continues to advertise, endorse and recommend Michael Merit and the Colorado Radon Institute with five stars. Mr. Beaudoin, why do you continue to endorse such a client?

DO NOT USE THE SERVICES OF ANY OF THE ABOVE-NAMED COMPANIES - MORE LIKELY THAN NOT, THEY WILL MAKE FALSE PROMISES AND SCAM YOU OUT OF YOUR MONEY!!!

    Thanks for a detailed and informative post. You can check if this contractor is still with ServiceMagic by using its "screen a pro" service. http://www.servicemagic.com/screen/

    I hired a terrible roofer through Service Magic and just today determined that he is still with Service Magic.
