Additional Notes

Complaint: Company misrepresented itself. They claimed to be with ATT, but in fact are a separate group. They submitted misinformation and caused Internet and phone service to be disconnected and created a mix up in accounts. ATT technician pointed out that order was placed by So Cal Group. We called So Cal group three times, each time they refused to discuss anything with us, but instead just hung up.

Desired Settlement: Pay damages for down time of employees that have not been able to do work because of lack of internet or phone service.

Business Response:

To whom it may concern,

After reviewing the complaint and speaking with our employee, we discovered that the order we placed on behalf of our client  did not go through.  An order been placed by another vendor, without our knowledge, so that order took precedence over our order, and ours was canceled.

Also, we do receive phone calls from customers sometimes. We did not receive any call from Mr. *********. There is another company in the area, The So Cal Group (that has a very similar name) to ours, The So Cal Group, Inc.  Perhaps Mr. ********* was calling  the wrong company, and that is why they hung up on him. If he had called us, we would have wanted to help him and make sure that the order went through correctly.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.
