I bought a Dealfind voucher for a gutter cleaning from Jaykob Isaak Inc. After phoning them, I was told over the phone that they would call me back with the appointment date and time but this has never happened. I eventually found another number for their company and called them. There they told me that the Voucher was expired and unusable even though on it, it clearly says "No expiration date".
I dug a little further and discovered that indeed this is a scam company. It is owned by Jarred Hayman, a scammer from Ontario who also owns many other scamming companies. He is apparently well known to the London Police.
Just a few months ago in Saskatoon, he scammed a family out of 15,000 dollars. They paid him that money to build the driveway and he said that his company would get it done in three days. But a month later, it was still uncompleted.
Bottom line is this company is a scam and do not deal business with them or any of Jarred Hayman's companies. He is a scammer.
Response from Jaykob Isaak Inc
Pete I do have to say sorry to you and many other dealfind customers for the absolute mess that occurred from our using them as a marketing agent.
You do have to understand that as a young company you search out advertising and when dealfind came to us it was a very good way to promote our service and enter into a warm reception with potential clients. and we did do a number of runs with them that went very well for everyone, but when our dealfind agent put together the Windows and eves package for us we never imagined that it could turn into the mess it became.
On the first day of sales with dealfind we sold 1500 vouchers because it was an amazing deal and noone was doing this anywhere the voucher price was $69 for clean your eves and wash your windows, and we got $34 to redeem each voucher. but had to collect the sales tax, Now I know your not feeling sorry for me so here's where we start to go downhill ALLL 1500 people that bought the voucher all want this service its something that they need and they bought the voucher and they want it NOW today or by the weekend they want to redeem them because its such a great deal and my phonelines get jammed with calls from people looking to book a time. so here is were is starts every time someone calls the 1 800 number it cost me $1 if I answer or not, and I mean everyone called as a matter of fact the deal was so good that several other deal sites copied the deal from dealfind and without a contract or agreement just sold the deal and tried to negotiate with us later so now not only do we have dealfind customers but 10 other deal sites customers calling about the deal.
We tried we did try to service the vouchers but it was overwhelming I did as many as I could, I hired guys to get to more, the average time to do one was 4 hours for 2 guys cost $134 in labor for each one we did. Now the idea was to get in to the house with a service to be able to show that our work was good and we did a number of things that people need but noone does and we couldn't because we were so behind. Every time it rained or someone was sick we had reschedule into an already fully book sheet and just as we though we were getting stabilized Dealfind insisted we rerun the deal because of the contract they could run it whenever they wanted and they did and we would get reburied. With no other work available because there was no time and losing $100 every voucher we serviced I had no choice but to close the company cause I just couldn't keep up and I feel terrible I don't do business like that. Dealfind said they would refund anyone that called them but that apparently didn't happen.
I don't know how this Jarred Hayman got associated with my company but it has been a nightmare I have no idea who this guy is but believe me he has beat me up on every turn. I have delt with police and they know that I'm not this guy.
I'm sorry Pete and everyone else that is involved I'd love to be cleaning your eves and windows and servicing your homes and makin money and fixing your stuff I love my job, I'm not a scammer The dealfind deal BANKRUPTED me as they did to a number of other small companies like myself there is a point when you get too busy., I'm soooo sorry I couldn't make this work ,I am if you believe me or not I tried I honestly gave my all and couldn't keep up I know your frustrated and this wont change that I just hope you understand
