R & R furniture Co? need help, looks like fraud in the making

Recommended Posts

I was looking through my EX softpulls and some company named :

 

R AND R FURNITURE

 

Address:

502 W 31ST ST

SAVANNAH GA 31415

No phone number available

 

pulled a soft on 09/02/09

 

I am currently opted out, however, why would a small furniture store in a state I never lived in pull a soft on me?

 

I looked them up on google streets and they are a very small shop. I wouldn't even think a place like that would have access for their own credit.

 

I can not find a number or a website for them. Should I contact the police department in Savannah?

Perhaps Alfreds is a new name, or bought R and R, or who knows. But at least there's a phone number and email address for you ...

 

 

Admin note: Please do not call the phone number listed, it belongs to an individual who has nothing to do with R&R Furniture.

I would certainly call them. IT is 100% fraudulent!

 

1. I copied and pasted the address into Google.

 

2. I clicked on the first item (superpages).

 

3. I clicked on the address (Alfreds Furniture).

 

4. I called the number. It was disconnected.

 

5. I Googled "Alfreds Furniture".

 

6. I clicked on the first listing.

 

7. Called the (866) 930 2412, the message said that it was out of service. BUT, it wasn't a regular phone service message, it WAS a voice recording, you can tell.

 

8. Called the fax number that was listed; (912) 234 3784. No funny noises, just a voice message saying that it is not in service (a legit voice message)!

Then, check out the email address (reed.shay@yahoo.com). I googled it. The same person has a painting company too (Reed).

Has discount healthcare plans a few months ago "Date: 2009-07-23, 3:53PM EDT Reply to: reed.shay@yahoo.com. If you need a healthcare plan at a low rate starting at $14.95 please call me for more ..." She is also hiring, LOL

But, the last thing that I found on them was that they are trying to sucker people into joining AmeriPlan (sounds like a pyramid scheme). So I called the number on the link below ((912) 224-0388) and it was hers (Shay Reed) and her ol man. It was a cell phone and sounds totally bogus!

I hope this helps... BURN EM!!!

 

Side note, its not hard to find these things out yourself.

Not true, the phone number, address, and email are the still the same as what their registered information claims.

 

ETA: R AND R FURNITURE only have two stores, both in TX according to their website.

There's a Manta listing also, which shows a local phone number (912) 231-0212 for the R and R in Savannah.

 

(Manta also lists a website, but the website actually belongs to an R and R in Austin Texas).

No prob. Looks like on big scam.

The address in GA seems legit, if you google map it, the street view shows a sign for r and r furniture co.

 

I might call a local gas station and see if they are in business.

Manta listing for Alfred's Furniture:

 

309 Main St

Garden City, GA 31408

Phone: (912) 964-9990

 

Alfred Reed, Owner

 

About 5.7 miles from the Savannah address - could be newer or older address.

 

I'm also guessing Reed is/was one or both of the "R's" in "R and R".

 

I'm lazier than GoArsenal, so I'm going to quit now ... :rolleyes:

I did a soft on EX and was also a potential victim of "R&R". Everything the OP posted is my situation. Mine occured on September 2, 2009 (only reason I was in EX via backdoor was to see my old repo deleted). I have not been looking for furniture and I haven't been through Savannah in over 11 years (Spring Break...drove to Florida with a couple of buddies).

 

When I did a google search, this thread was the first post. I will be subscribing to this thread so if you called SPD, please post what they told you as I may do the same. In the mean time, I will continue my own investigation and if I find anything pertinent, I will post here as well.

Also another potential victim of "R&R". Same exact situation as OP and AboveAverage- Mine also occurred on 09/02/09. I also have not been looking into buying furniture and I have never even been to Georgia. Please keep me updated on any information you find out, I will be looking into it as well. Thanks!

I just checked my Experian and they softed me on 09/02 as well. Now i'm worried, never been to Georgia, haven't been furniture shopping in years, so NO reason whatsoever these people should be running my credit.

Is it possible to change the title of this thread to add "R & R furniture Co" so others will see it and can join in if they have also had their reports looked at? Seems too coincidental that there are already at least three that have noticed the soft so I wonder if there are a LOT more that haven't noticed it yet or just haven't posted it in this thread as it doesn't appear related from the title alone.

 

Yeah I checked the street view on Google maps also and let's just say the business definitely doesn't look like a place who's credit department is about to run a big credit campaign to get more customers. Looks more like their credit department would be run by bookies and payday loan "specialists." So again, no legitimate reason in the world why this rinky dink place would be viewing my credit report.

I'm another to add. I noticed them on my CR with a pull on the same date as everyone else. I was freaked out about identity theft and did a search on here and found this thread.
