Mr Richard (Richie) O Donovan and his little company (R & L Paving and Roofing) failed to execute the work that he promised (he is a sweet talker and a ripp off). He showed me a picture he said was from a "project I just completed".
Later I found that "exact" same picture from a a company ADC, and they told me that was one of their jobs. So this ripoff is taking other company pictures from their websites and telling unsuspecting customers (just like me) that its his work.
What a liar he is, I have text messages where he promised to finsih the job (either by say Friday, or early next week) 11 Times. I had to apply a lot of pressure and even contacted him on Sundays as I had a feeling he was trying to rip me off. Turned out to be very accurate to me one this.
He has "no idea" of what he is doing and uses labor that is never supervised, I am proof of this and have it on my security cameras around my property, so I can monitor all movement to and from my property.
This mortgage broker is only making fees up from borrowers, no address only phone number and website site that tells you nothing about C&S Commerical Consultants LLC, who was referred by a local mortgage broker here in Los Angeles county.
The lender C&S Commerical had, I made contact with them in Feb 2019, documents were requested from C&S Commercial were supplied to him and he never presented to the lender Sunset Equity. The upfront fee was $2,500, I asked for a REFUND and he said no. I just want to let people know, don't pay any fees upfront in 2019 is a sorry way to make money.
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.
They stole my cousins money they did fruad on her credit stay away from these 2 we are located in Georgia and they have ruined my cousins credit we have reported them to the police stay far away from this company
This place is a total scam. The material doesn't help you and then they make it so difficult to speak to anyone that you end up just giving up. I don't even think they know what is on their own website. They advertise helping get people jobs at the post office but their terms and conditions say they get paid by giving opionions on consumer products/sites.
What in the heck does that have to do with getting me a job at the post office? I have been trying to reach someone for weeks and still no luck. Do not give these folks your time or money. It will be wasted and that is a guarantee.
Alex Arden and his thieves have not paid numerous employees and this company keeps changing web sites and adresses to avoid prosecution. They are currently under investigation with multiple authorites, Local, State and Federal and is running a God Scam.
They defame and threaten employees if they blow the whistle on this scam. Clients, Employees and vendors are at risk. DO NOT TRUST this Fraud. They are not a solar company. They are a third party unlicensed fraud. Do your own research and you will find out the truth.

CUSTOMER CARE & COMPLAINT RESOLUTION – WILSHIRE FINANCIAL GROUP
Mr. James was asked about a situation when a client was not satisfied with the level of service they received. “Mr. Nickens our last complaint we contacted directly. He told us he wanted to get our attention. The statements he made were fabricated. We are not a virtual office, we do not "pretended" to sell corporations. We sold him one! We do not "pretend" to find CFO's for our corporate clients. We do operate an executive search and placement service and we do locate CFO/Credit Partners. In fact, Mr. Nicken's wife, Kimberly Perata is a CFO/Credit Partner signed under our contract. He came to us with serious IRS audit issues which we were able to resolve. Subsequently, the IRS opened another year of his tax filings for audit which we have not been retained to assist him with. The other post we do not know the posters as they were posted without identification.”

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Wilshire Financial Group Inc John Garry, William Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, California
Too much to list…sounds exactly like the first guy…..paid money for a shelf corporation and CFO and months after….NOTHING!
You guys are going down for real this time…..these other people may or may not tried to take you down, but this time it is for real. We will get all of our money back and you will get what is just and coming to you, and be made to stand trial criminally I hope for your felonous dealings. I will shout far and loud about your illegal doings and make it known across the country not to do business with you.
They had me order the wrong parts then threw the package away so I couldn’t send it back. They almost set my car on fire ruining a brand new battery in the process. Lied to me on multiple occasions. After I picked the car up the top blew off on the way home, they ruined a brand new freshly painted hood, sprayed glue all over the side of my car, left metal shavings all over the inside of the car.
In total did $3500 in damage to the car. Later found out the frame for the top had been cut and welded on one side which made the frame no good they should have never put the top on the car. They didn’t adjust the the tension cables. Went to court they had the owners 80 year old dad, who doesn’t even work there give the only testimony.
He said they told me the frame was no good and I told them I didn’t want the top put on right. They said the top couldn’t have been welded because tops are made of pot metal and can’t be welded. They said you don’t use glue to put on convertible tops so they couldn’t have sprayed glue on the side of my car.
I didn’t have an attorney and didn’t know how to defend myself. Despite pictures off the glue sprayed on the side off my car, pictures of metal shavings all over the inside of my car. Dents in the hood off my car, receipt from the shop that had to repair the top and body damage, letters from these shops.
Receipts for the parts I had to replace the judge sided with them based on no evidence and the testimony off one person that doesn’t even work there. They had a attorney that coached him to lie on everything I testified too. I didn’t know how to defend myself.
The majority of reviews they have are from people who have had similar problems too what I experienced.
Sloppy work. I had a leak coming through my living room window after they installed it. Their own employee told me it was their fault for a gap in the caulking, but owner Steven Johnson says it's impossible to know for sure that it was their fault (even though his employee confirmed with a leak test, then repaired the problem by adding caulking).
Communication has been dreadful; they will go weeks to months without responding to me. I've been dealing with this issue now for 4 full months. If they'd just been straight with me from the beginning I probably wouldn't care as much, but I've just never seen such disorganized communication and blatant disregard for the customer. It's bad!
