|It all started out well. My fiance and I met with Enzina (the 'partner') and DJ Shake One/Everly. They seemed nice enough. We went over details of what they offered for a wedding and it all sounded awesome. After a decent presentation we agreed to hire them. We went over the contract, signed and gave a deposit of over $400. We requested proof of their insurance in order to send it on to the venue. |
We did in fact receive the insurance and faxed it over to our venue, then we mailed the insurance back to the DJ. It seemed strange that they sent us their only copy of their insurance forms, but I didn't really think too much about it. Soon the insurance paperwork arrived in my mailbox as a return to sender. I checked the address on the envalope and it was the same as the address on the insurance form. I tried to call the insurer listed to see what the actual address was, and wouldn't you know the insurer didn't exist. I called one of the sub insurers on the form, and they informed me that this policy had expired years prior.
I got a hold of the DJ and requested a refund. They explained that it was some sort of mixup but agreed to refund our money. A couple of weeks went by, and I called them back. They explained that "the check was in the mail." A couple more weeks, I called, and again the same response.
At this point they will no longer answer calls or email requests.I would like to advise anyone to stay far away from these people. If they behave this way with simple paperwork, it doesn't bode to well for anything that they might do with a wedding. I can only imagine the big day coming and these shmucks not showing up.
Here are their facebook pages so that people can know who they should avoid in the future:
