|Washington Integrity Joe Beck
|Non-performance of services
|10th of Jan, 2012 by Pau1ster
|“Danger, Danger Will Robinson…Danger!” If YOU do NOT want your money to be “Lost In Space” than do NOT ever consider giving it to Joe Beck of Washington Integrity. The same goes for James Wallace of Wallace Financial.
Unfortunately, to the dismay of many who have given him between $8,000 and $40,000, they have not received the services promised. They have not received a refund. They have only received frustration, anger, disappointment, lack of professionalism, lack of reasonable business practices, lack of solutions, lack of action, lack of results.
I am a disabled Veteran who spent 24 glorious years in the military serving our great nation. That was my last $10,000 to my name. it was for corporate funding to be used for an assisted care center for disabled Vets with TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury). It is a dream of mine that Beck has now turned into a nightmare.
If Joe Beck was for real then he would be very motivated to perform the advertised/marketed service of all the steps leading up to and including obtaining of corporate funding by a private investment group, since he gets the lion’s share of the success fee of 10% on the back end. That amounts to $25,000 on $250,000 financing AND $15,000 on the corporate visa card for $150,000 (part of advertised/marketed package) for a total commission of $40,000 PLUS his share of the $8,000 to $10,000 paid by us (the client) up front.
But if he is NOT for real then his only motivation is to take our money upfront and run, producing no financing or corporate credit card, which is the unfortunate reality we are all experiencing. The only thing that happens is a corporation which any of us could have gotten for under $1,000, but which is WORTHLESS to us without the resultant corporate financing.
I have spoken with 3 other clients in 3 other states (I reside in NC) and they are all experiencing non- performance of services. Joe Beck claims he is real, but the results prove otherwise. The lack of results show he has no ability to produce corporate funding or a D & B profile with the paydex score of 80 which enables the same. None of the clients I spoke to had anything other than a corporation to show for their monies paid to Beck, a commodity which typically cost less than $1,000 and is worthless to clients without the corporate funding which is supposed to follow. Thus we must conclude that he is not for real. He misrepresents what he is able to accomplish, what he has accomplished (never furnishes proof although it’s been requested of him), and what he will accomplish.
My journey with Beck started in July of this year (2011). Other clients I spoke with are at the 14 month mark, 16 month mark and 24 month mark (yes, that’s right, two years!). Have any of you out there ever experienced a business transaction that took 2 years to complete, one that was advertised as potentially 25 days to accomplish? I surely have not. I think that my almost 6 months is absurd.
Red Flag: I requested a BEST case and WORST case funding scenario; the best date was Aug. 25th and the worst case was Sept. 9th. Today is the end of December. You do the math. I laid out the case that it was important to have a worst case that I could depend on and Sept. 9th was the date provided. Any professional who has provided services and knows their services inside out would never miss a date by this much. Yet the other 3 clients I personally spoke with are even worse off than I am.
Red Flag: Communication; Beck never picks up the phone when you call unless he wants to speak with you. A week at a time have gone by with no response to multiple phone calls, emails, and text messages. Again, we have all experienced it so this is not just with me. If he is that busy and making that much money than he certainly would have an answering service or assistant. Not Beck. It’s obviously more fun to watch us squirm around and frustrated to the point of screaming before he finally graces us with a response.
Red Flag: No response to multiple emails on multiple occasions. This was maddening. Many times I started numbering my request for a response in the subject line (e.g. 8th Request, 12th Request) Still no response. Maybe after 10 - 15 emails he would finally respond with “I’ll call you tomorrow evening” but address NOT ONE ISSUE in your many emails. And of course the phone call would NOT happen for typically one week later than the first notice that he would call you the next day. It never got any better.
Red Flag: Funding Date; Beck must have known on Tues. Sept. 6th that the funding would NOT/could NOT happen on Fri. Sept. 9th yet he still texted me “no worries” when I called him and explained that I got the final paperwork for my corporation and was going to either register the corp. online with NC state for only $100 and take 5 biz days OR drive 2 hrs each way to Raleigh to expedite it for an additional cost to me of $350 ($450 total). Again, he texted me “no worries”. So I did it. Again, it is now the end of December 2011. Obviously it meant nothing to Beck that we would spend enormous time and monies for no good reason.
Red Flag: Beck claims that negative postings in cyberspace cause the others he outsources part of the package to not be able to work on your file or anyone else’s for that matter. He spews out of his mouth that Dun & Bradstreet will somehow find out and freeze/red flag ALL accounts in regard to trade references associated with the accounts belonging to those persons. Well, that is plain ole hogwash! If that is the case then:
(1)he should fully disclose that upfront to all potential clients so that they all will elect not to do business with him, knowing that such a situation will be likely to occur. For what business out there does not have some negative press due to making mistakes? It’s only natural and occurs all the time in the business world at large
(2)Dun & Bradstreet is a huge organization and it would not make sense for them to even check the internet for negative postings on persons such as Beck. After all if you think about it his name is nowhere on your D & B profile since he has nothing to do with creating the profile. He himself told me a person on the East Coast is always used to outsource this to and that Beck never gets involved in D & B profiles since he would have no recourse against that outsourced person if something goes wrong. Of course, with the 3 clients I spoke to they all had something go wrong. To this day I still only have a corporation and NO D & B profile. So much for his worst case funding date of Sept. 9th.
Red Flag; On multiple occasions we have all asked for full refunds due to non-performance of services. On multiple occasions a request for proof of funding to previous clients was made. No proof furnished to any of us to this day. It should be easy since Beck claims that many of his clients get funded than go for a more expensive package (like the one for $38,000 to include a shelf corp, $500K to $750K funding and a D & B profile with 15 trade lines and a Paydex score of 95). If that is true than plenty of happy funded clients would be willing to speak with us. But of course there are none. Why? Because fairy tales are not true stories. They are made up. That’s why!
Current Scenario: This man has filed a complaint online with the Better Business Bureau. Additonally I spoke with the FTC and filed a complaint against Beck. My next step is to call and file a complaint with District Attorneys for NC and Penn. (state where Beck is located; of note he resides in Lehigh County, Allentown, PA). Then I shall contact the FBI Fraud division in Penn. Then I hope and pray that Beck ends up on the other side of the bars where he truly belongs.
