Company called my son from several different state numbers claiming my son’s company ordered tools. He did not. They threatened him saying they were reporting him to ups and sending the police. I told him to just block their number. They sent a letter received today, trying to collect $557.85. They didn’t even bother to send him any of the junk tools I’m reading about some others actually did receive. They are just trying to bully him into sending them money because they said to. I’m assuming they targeted his business because it has the word Remodeling in its name. Whoever is behind this needs shut down ASAP!!! People are saying these scammers put a negative on their credit reports? How are they getting away with this? I’m going to tell him to check his report, but they threatened him with police and reporting him to UPS. I don’t know what that is supposed to do.

Ace industrial supply (inland empire industrial supplies, inc) called me and knew my name and address. They persisted on selling me drill bits along with some free safety glasses and more. I told them I did not want them but they insisted that they mail them to me and I did not have to pay for them until 30 days. They mailed them and will not give me a return label to mail them back. They started out saying the bill was 386.00 but now they say the past due account is 500.00+ dollars. They have made threatening phone calls trying to get me to pay and I have not been friendly at all to them. The drill bits are nothing like they described and I did not want them to start with. This company is a scam and needs to be investigated.

This company called me to offer me a 'free complimentary' industrial supply package. I was working, so I gave them my address and they sent me a package that is worth about $30 and gave me a $300 bill along with it. All of my 20 attempts to call them, and message them have resulted in no contact back. I am just trying to return this package and they won't answer. Many other people have reported the same issue and being scammed for similar amounts. Then, Inland Empire starts adding finance fees on top of late fees because they won't take the package back. So, I am worried about my business credit rating so I'm going to pay it.

-BAIT & SWITCH - - FRAUD - - ACTING WITH INTENT TO DO FINANCIAL HARM -- with a bank of phones - with men just out of prison, felons who can't get a job any where else, reading a script, till they get someone hooked. As soon as a customer is hooked they are going to pay because they are threatened with collection and bad credit reports. The company has been doing this for years and no one has done anything about it, because people are embarrassed that they have been baited with a quality item, then shipped an inferior cheap item and threatened with collection if they don't pay within 30 days. If the company thinks legal action is close they change their name to another company located in the same business complex. One rancher's wife discovered that her husband had been baited, switched & taken. He was so devastated he threatened to harm himself. His church and friends are standing by this family. Some times it is just not about the money. The salesman called himself Justin.
