I had a small claims judgement and needed to locate assets of the defendant. I found assetsearch.com on the web. They have a very good search engine. I called the 800 number and was given an option of bank account search in one state, bank account nationwide, or all assets nationwide. Since it was small claims I decided to try the state bank account search. I was told the fee was $195 and of course I paid it.
I began to get suspicious when I didn’t hear anything for a month. I called the 800 number and was told it would be another month. I called again in another month and then was told my information was never processed and to resend it. I resent the information. I called again in a month and was told it would be a few more days. I then received a letter in the mail stating no records were found for bank accounts in the name or social security number of the defendant.
As luck would have it, I was able , on my own, to locate a bank account in the name and social security number of the defendant right here in my home state. I called the people at assetsearch.com to request a refund. I was told I would have to call back after 6 p.m. to speak with a Fred Joseph.
I called him back after 6 p.m. and after I explained part of the situation, I was put on hold by him twice. After waiting 10 minutes on hold the second time I called Fred Joseph back. He then proceded to call me a dumb motherf***er several times before hanging up.
I was dumb all right, for sending my money to this rip-off artist. Be warned!!!
