Report Filed: TKO SPORTS (TSHIRT COMPANY) BEWARE!!! SCAMMERS!!! HOWEVER I DID GET MY MONEY BACK Bullhead City Arizona!!
October 2014 Sherry from Spring High School called me asking if I would sponsor their school, as I had done the previous year, by advertising on the back of Tshirts. Considering I was the new owner of the business I assumed the past owner had done this. Stupid me. First she told me it would cost $360.00. I told her I couldn’t afford that so she immediately lowered the price to $180.00 for a smaller ad. I agreed. Sherry then tried to get me to give her my credit card info. I refused and told her that I would write a check and needed someone from TKO Sports to come pick it up. A man came a day or two later. He was acting nervous and couldn’t wait to get out of my store. I have cameras everywhere. A few days later I received an email with an ad proof which I approved. Two months went by and nothing. I called several times and finally emailed TKO. I got a response from the manager Lester Sentisi apologizing for nor getting back to me sooner. He explained that it would be another 6 to 8 weeks before the Tshirts would be delivered. Then again nothing. I called and emailed too many times to count for several months with no response at all. In October 2015 I got an idea. I went to Craigslist and posted a request on Rants and Raves. I asked if anyone knew how to find Lester. I received a great response. This scammer was on Facebook under the name les allen (mcnodsalot). I then messaged several of his friends and family letting them know how he had scammed me. WOW! I heard from him and the owner Jeff Kirk within minutes! They both told me that my money would be refunded. It took 2 weeks, but I finally got the check and to my shock it was good! Jeff continued his lie that TKO had done business with Spring High School for 6 years and they had delivered the shirts. What a bunch of baloney! The head coach and principal had NEVER heard of TKO Sports and NEVER ordered any Tshirts with them or any business. Also, there was no Sherry that worked at Spring High. Lying Jeff even went as far as to tell me he was sending shirts to me. Of course I never got anything. He couldn’t even tell me what they looked like! BEWARE OF THESE SCAMMERS!! They’ll take your money and disappear.
