The Jason Friedman dilemma has once again reared it’s ugly head (and anyone who’s ever met Jason before knows that it’s an ugly head indeed). Jason sent out yet another email to try to limit the effectiveness of our new marketing campaign by sending a two page run-on sentence to our affiliate base. I’m going to post it here on the site in it’s unedited glory:
I am resending this e-mail in response to the onslaught of complaints I have recently received regarding the new company American Association for consumer Services that has been trying to pass itself off as AACS Inc. These complaints range from” Leo and Ricky have told me that my clients have X deletions yet their score has not gone up” to “ I have paid AACS LTD. X amount of dollars and never heard from them again” I have also received numerous complaints regarding Settlement and debt negotiations. I am going to relay this one more time, “AACS LTD. Company has limited knowledge in settlements and debt negotiations and are not able to arrange settlements for anything other than lump sum settlements (and in most cases are only able to come to arrangements for the blanket amount which the client is able to do themselves.) This does NOT help clients that do not have the means to pay settlements in a lump sum. I am merely sending this e-mail to reiterate that AACS LTD. is in no way affiliated with AACS Inc. or Friedman & Friedman associates.AACS Inc. is now operating in conjunction with Friedman & Friedman Associates and is still offering our Credit Assistance Program CAP in conjunction with our improved settlement and Debt negotiation. We have recently gone through a major reorganization and have come up with several programs to expedite increasing your client’s credit rating. Any questions or concerns should be directed to me or my staff at toll free 866-xxx-xxxx or locally (954) xxx-xxxx. If you would like any past correspondence regarding the ongoing, “problems” with AACS LTD co. Please send all requests to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yes, he put the whole email in bold, like an AOL newbie. Yes, he put the whole thing in one paragraph. He is learning basic punctuation, as he has periods in his paragraphs now, so maybe there’s hope that in four or five years he’ll achieve third grade writing capability. Let’s stop being grammar nazis and analyze for content, though, as excruciating as it might be (I have edited the quotes for punctuation to make them easier to read).
‘I’m resending this email in response to the onslaught of complaints I have recently received regarding the new company American Association for Consumer Services that has been trying to pass itself off as AACS Inc.’
First of all, I highly doubt that he’s recieving an “onslaught of complaints,” as we’ve done nothing but improve the level of customer service and service effectiveness since his departure from our organisation. Secondly, we’ve never lied or mislead the public about our organisation’s nature or our dissassociation from the old AACS Inc, which was a Jason Friedman-started enterprise (and I use the word ‘enterprise’ very loosely here).
‘These complaints range from” Leo and Ricky have told me that my clients have X deletions yet their score has not gone up” to “I have paid AACS LTD. X amount of dollars and never heard from them again.”’
I can’t speak with authority to what people tell him, as I’m not privvy to his phone conversations, but I can say that if a client sends in reports to our company, we guarantee that the credit score will improve. The only cases we don’t improve credit scores is when the client either through negligence or obstinance does not send in credit reports.
‘I have also received numerous complaints regarding settlements and debt negotiations. I am going to relay this one more time. AACS Ltd Co has limited knowledge in settlements and debt negotiations and are not able to arrange settlements for anything other than lump sum settlements (and in most cases are only able to come to arrangements for the blanket amount, which the client is able to do themselves).’
This is patently untrue. Jason has exactly one month more experience with debt negotiations than anyone on staff at AACS Ltd Co. We were all here when he began debt negotiations. The contacts he made with collection agencies were company contacts, shared by all the principals of the company, and most of them, when we call to make payment arrangements for our debt negotiation clients, make fun of Jason and his antics to us. It’s clear for anyone with a brain that he’s lacking his. Our favorite joke we share with a couple of the collection agencies is where we try to guess who the other ‘Friedman’ in Friedman, Friedman and Associates is. Our best guess is it’s his toddler, as you can always hear him yelping in the background when you call up his ‘company.’
‘I am merely sending this e-mail to reiterate that AACS Ltd Co is in no way affiliated with AACS Inc. or Friedman, Friedman & Associates. AACS Inc. is now operating in conjunction with Friedman & Friedman Associates and is still offering our Credit Assistance Program (CAP) in conjunction with our improved settlement and debt negotiation program.’
This was a particularly error ridden sequence of words, and I hope I’ve reconstructed it to indicate the original intent of the part of the paragraph. If so, this section contains the only kernel of truth from the whole letter – we are in fact not affiliated with each other anymore. AACS Inc. is run by a despotic embezzler named Jason Friedman, and AACS Ltd Co is run by Leo Johnson and Ricky McGill, with assistance by yours truly, Martha Burton, Albert Orozco, Rachel Sneed, and Ally Kinirons (none of whom are afraid to attach their name to the work of the company – notice how Jason always refers to these mysterious people who are a part of that company, but they are never named?). We are a small, but efficient staff. We know how to do what we do, very well, I might add.
Additionally, CAP is a creation of Ricky McGill. Our company (AACS Ltd Co) owns CAP, and he is infringing on our intellectual property by using the name. If he had any assets worth pursuing, we’d sue him. He’s broke, however, and not worth suing at all.
I’d write some baiting or insulting verbage here, but he pretty much insults himself every time he opens his mouth, so I’ll let him continue to be his own worst enemy.
If you need RELIABLE credit assistance, you should head on over to my company’s website. If you want to deal with an interminable moron, give Jason a call – he’s in the book.
