FRESNO, Calif. - A Fresno woman was nearly scammed out of thousands of dollars and her identity, after a man called her out of the blue to provide financial help for her and her business. The woman recently opened her own janitorial service and had just gotten her city license, when a man by the name of Amir Gomez contacted her about being a subcontractor for his company Contracting Leaders of America.He offered to pay her $10,350.00 up front, and another $10,350.00 upon completion for cleaning 33 units by September 30th.The woman was immediately very excited and said yes. She filled out a job application and included information like her name, address and business license. They told her she must have $5 million in liability and worker's comp for a year, and she must pay them $2,800.00 for the cost of the insurance. They told her if that was too much, to go through Colonial Penn. She then decided to go with Amir and his company.They told her she must pay half over the phone with her banking card or with a MoneyGram. She was told to place the other half into the account of Stiven Mendoza, who they claimed was the Chief Financial Officer at Wells Fargo. They provided her with Stiven's account information.They provided this woman with an IRS 8300 form, and told her to fill it out and meet up with a guy named Steve Charleston at Fort Washington Country Club in Fresno. They claimed Steve was the owner of Steve Charleston Investment Group, which is not searchable on Google. Steve left a call back number of 559-800-7053, and one Google search prompted a ton of complaints relating to this same scam, with different variations of the same names being used (Amir Lopez instead of Amir Gomez).Contracting Leaders of America has an address listed on their website (that was not searchable through Google) as 2200 Ross Ave, Dallas, TX. This address is owned by Fortis Property Group, and when we spoke to the property manager, we were told this business does not have an office in that building.We managed to trace the domain of their web address, and linked it back to a Pedro Perez out of Mexico who opened the web domain last month.After speaking with the woman about what our findings were, she decided to no longer answer their calls, and is thankful she didn't give out any more personal information other than her address and phone number.These scammers reportedly have been blowing up this woman's phone, calling dozens and dozens of times a day.Better Business Bureau Serving Central California & Inland Empire Counties urges consumers to verify any company that calls you out of the blue, and know that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.ABOUT BBB: For more than 100 years, Better Business Bureau has been helping people find businesses, brands and charities they can trust.
