ClickedIn Franco Ieraci, Frank Ieraci Clickedin – multiple issues with Linkedin marketing/connection service; refuses to refund payment

92

Clickedin is owned by Franco Ieraci although under ClickedIn, he goes by the name, Frank Ieraci. You can read more about Franco/Frank Ieraci on Ripoff Reports under another company, Click SEO Marketing, that appears to have caused other people problems. Franco/Frank uses the same Canadian address for ClickedIn (for purposes of collecting credit card charges) that he used for what appears to be the now defunct Click SEO Marketing that others were complaining about. You can search his name and the company name. 

ClickedIn is an artificial intelligence-based marketing system that operates in connection with LinkedIn. ClickedIn claims it will allow you to search leads on LinkedIn, send connection requests to those leads, and engage with LinkedIn connections via the LinkedIn platform. Almost immediately, I began experiencing problems, everything from the system just not operating to my receiving a notice from LinkedIn stating: "we do not permit the use of software tools that automate activity on LinkedIn. Can you please disable any such tools …?" Frank wrote that this doesn't apply to ClickedIn for some unexplained reason. 

I made minimally 11 complaints to Frank (Franco) Ieraci and his team and each time they blamed system bugs and outages on LinkedIn or user error. I requested they return my money. Ieraci said he would only refund 1 month, even though I paid for 6. I then filed a dispute with American Express.

As part of his response to AmEx, Frank Ieraci sent AmEx a forged email from me stating how happy I was with his service and wanted information on a referral program, despite on that very that same day I continued to demand a refund. 

In trying to locate a physical address for Ieraci, it appears he is somewhere in the Miami, FL area. His contract has Fulton County, GA for any disputes (odd), but ClickedIn is incorporated in Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada, with a physical space in what appears to be a strip center by the side of the road.

Others complaining about him for running out on paying his personal rent, are also not able to "find" the guy. You can't sue someone who you can't serve. That's probably why he employs people from outside the U.S. for sales and customer service. Nothing wrong with that, provided it is not a tactic to become judgment proof, which I suspect Franco Ieraci is. 

While I don't recommend dealing with this company or its owner at all, if you do, before engaging with them, confirm with LinkedIn their ability to latch onto their system to generate leads. If LinkedIn catches this, they will kick YOU off of their system. ClickedIn and Ieraci walk away unscathed and with your money.
