|This company is a FRAUD took $4,000 dollars and never provided services. They contact you via telemarketing and show you the website and vendors and tell you they are affiliated with Amazon. When contacting the vendors they informed me they do not know the company UCG (Universal Coaching Group refer to as UCG)and they do not have any contracts. I've contacted the Department of business and Industry complaints Office of the Director Consumer Affairs unit in Nevada regarding UCG and found the company's address used 1700 Vegas Dr. Ste 301 Las Vegas NV 89106-2111 doesn't exist. They sent correspondence through the mail with no response and when they tried to visit the business physical address found it didn't exist. When I spoke with George Stanley at UCG and told him they were a fraudulent company he hung up and took the website down immediately. They put the site back up for a while and take it down when they think they are being investigated. If you go to www.ripoffreport.com you will find they have done this to many people using different business names. Do a simple search of just a few complaints #1099403, #1115094, #1112375, #1099[03, #1099114 and #1089591. Also see the info on this blog www.pinnacle365.blogspot.com to ftnd out the different companies they are operating under.|
They initial use a set up business Coast 2 Coast Promotions located in Arizona which is fraudulent as well. I wired transferred the funds to
Coast 2 Coast Promotions to a Bill Todd at Chase Bank4040 East Chandler Blvd. Phoenix, AZ 85048 and when I tried to do a recall on the transfer the account has been closed. Chase bank has no interest in helping and said they have a valid address for this company. Coast 2 Coast promotions uses the same phone number as Universal Coaching Group and said they referred the account to Universal Coaching Group to fulfill the contract. They all work out of the same place and just use different business names and states to manipulate the system.
I have filed a complaint with my local police, contacted authorities in both Nevada and Arizona with no success. In order for them to do a full investigation they would need to have several complaints filed against them. If anyone has a complaint they need to file it with the state authorities and once they have enough complaints they can investigate further and file complaints in court. If you have had any dealings with this company or any of the companies listed in www.ripoffreport.com please contact authorities.
I was asked to give a rating. I wouldn't even give it a star but found it is necessary in order to post this complaint.
