Bait and Switch Scam

Misleading, poor customer service, scam. Purchased what I thought was a kit to test a sand pit that was probably poisoned. What I got was 2 bags that were to be filled and sent back to Davis Test Kits (along with another check for $10) to be tested. Waited 11/2 months and called. The guy said that he was sending me a report of what they already knew is in the ground water around the area I took the sample from and 15 recommendations of tests I can purchase from him that would tell me specifically what I am looking for. I don't know what I am looking for. I want him to tell me if he sees anything that should not be in the water. The person who wrote the review stating that he would recommend anyone to Davis Test Kits is probably the guy I talked to AT Davis Test Kits. DO NOT PURCHASE ANYTHING FROM DAVIS TEST KITS.

Pros:
  • Absolutely nothing.
  • Cons:
  • I spent $65 for nothing. Absolutely nothing. I have to spend more money to get test kits if I want results to see what is in the sand pit I want tested. total scam

    Mr. Champion purchased our All in One Water Test Kit but when he returned his kit back to us, he requested that we perform a water table investigation before any testing was performed. His investigation was completed along with said recomendations that were emailed.

    Awful company

    Their asbestos kits are a total scam. They do not comply with recommended guidelines according to their own literature. To get the recommended testing, you have to pay an additional $125 (which I found out you can get local labs to do the same test for $30). It is a bait and switch. Plus the instructions are awful, they imply you get for samples tested, but you only get one, and their customer service is nonexistent. Just call your local health department and ask them for help and local labs.

    Pros:
  • none
  • Cons:
  • overpriced
  • bait and switch
  • instructions
  • customer service

    Horrible Experience...STAY AWAY! Out of business?????????

    I purchased the Mold Detection Kit from Davis Test Kits in October 2012. The first "package" they sent contained damaged petri dish. It was unusable to obtain air samples. Contacted customer service, and they sent a new "package" almost immediately. Received the kit, and tested for mold. I sent in my sample via certified mail, and it was picked up from their PO Box on November 17. I paid additional money to "expedite" and email the results, which I still have not received. I have attempted to contact the company via telephone, email, and even through the BBB! Davis Test Kits happily took my money, charged my credit card for the kit and separately for the expedited/emailed results, but have failed to produce anything else. As a previous post states, calls go unanswered, and the voicemail box is full. What a mess...

    Pros:
  • Received kit quickly
  • No other pros
  • Cons:
  • First kit received was damaged
  • Never received results
  • No response from company
  • Literature and website are FULL of grammatical and spelling errors (appears to have been typed by a 12 year old)

    Davis Test Kit - Rip Off!

    I ordered a mold test kit from Davis on Dec 7, 2012 but still have not received. They claim all orders are shipped within 24 hours.

    Calls and e-mails to their customer service dept go unanswered. On-line ordering (via their web-site) has been suspended.

    Looks like I'm out $44.00.

    Cons:
  • Order never received.No response from customer service.

    Dave~
    I have filed with 15+ agencies, only to be told... Sorry! there is nothing we can do. Seriously? I was even told that $11,295.00 was really not a lot of money, that is the amount Davis Test Kits & IAQ Assessments stole from my family. My e-mail is shoasie229@gmail.com, maybe we could share info that may prove helpful. or (215) 332-7661
    I have submitted a dispute with my credit card company. Unless Davis can prove they sent the kit, I will get a refund.

    I am also filing a complaint with the Florida Attorney General.

    Rude

    Spoke to someone to order a test kit and he was extremely rude. Asked a question and seem like he was annoyed and did not want to answer my question. After that kind of response will not buy anything from them. Wonder what kind of response I will get if I actually already spent my money ordering their kit? Rude, will not order from them or recommend them to anyone.

    Pros:
  • 0
  • Cons:
  • Rude!
    Does not want to explain product or communicate very well

    Internet Crooks

    I ordered the test kit (Transaction ID: 263698467) to see if I had black mold in my condo after having a leaking roof. My landlord didnít seem interested in getting it fixed, so I am trying to build a case against him so I can break my lease or force him to fix the damage. In Colorado, renters have no rights. The kit came and did the testing and sent it in. I know they received it as they called me wanting to sell me other kits at hundreds of dollars. After two months and no response I tried to contact them on several occasions, and no response. Iíve gone to the BBB and State Attorney Ė still nothing. The BBB has closed the case as "The company failed to respond either to the consumer or the Bureau to the complaint(s) filed."

    I should have done more research on this company and it seems that many have the same problem. Get someone local to do your testingÖ Donít trust this company or Mr. Jason Sills.

    Pros:
  • Could get it easily on the internet and initial shipping fairly quick
  • Cons:
  • Lack of communication
    You don't get what you paid for
    They give the impression that they are only in it for the money... no response to BBB on any complaints. BBB has an alert on this business

    Scam or out of business.

    Ordered and paid for a mold test kit based on online reviews that I now believe were fraudulent. Sent my samples in over a month ago and have heard nothing despite multiple emails and phone attempts. The phone number reaches a voicemail which is full.

    Avoid this company.

    Pros:
  • None.
  • Cons:
  • Unresponsive.
    Unable to reach by phone or email.
    I suspect posts fraudulently positive online reviews.

    Total Scam.

    Davis Test Kits never sent the results to us; we attempted a charge-back with American Express. Davis Test Kits provided evidence that they sent the kit; received the samples, AND stated that they never sent the results.

    Looks like I am out $100.00 --- if anyone's had similar experiences, feel free to send me an email (woolfson @ telswitch.com) - if you'd be interesting in being part of a "class action" against this "company"...

    Pros:
  • No benefits to working with them.

    DESPERATELY SEEKING JUSTICE!

    HELP! Requesting any information on the company called

    FIBERTEC that responded to the Davis Test Kit customer

    QUACKBURY... Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Info from FIBERTEC's letterhead if you still have the letter. Thank You! the HUNSINGER FAMILY ... WE WERE SCAMMED OUT OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS BY ALEX DAVIS/DAVIS TEST KITS & IAQ ASSESSMENTS.

    Pros:
  • As stated on a previous review:
    The only PROS are the people working for ALEX DAVIS/Davis Test Kits who are pro's in scamming people out of their hard earned money.
  • Cons:
  • Ditto! The only CONS are ALEX DAVIS/Davis Test Kits in fraudulently representing himself and the company as legitimate. K.A.R.M.A. sleep Alex and see me searching for justice.

    DAVIS TEST KITS

    FOR ALL WHO WERE SCAMMED. THIS IS A CLASSIC CASE OF MAIL FRAUD. I WISH EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU WOULD FILE A COMPLAINT WITH THE U.S. POSTAL INSPECTOR. APPARENTLY THIS IS A VERY LUCRATIVE WHITE COLLAR CRIME WHICH IS NOT PUNISHABLE, AS I SADLY HAVE FOUND OUT. HOPEFULLY THE U.S. POSTAL INSPECTOR WILL FIND OTHERWISE. IT'S GREAT TO WRITE A BAD REVIEW, BUT HOW IS THAT GOING TO PUT AN END TO ALEX DAVIS AND HIS BOGUS COMPANIES.

    Pros:
  • YES! ALEX DAVIS IS AN ABSOLUTE 'PRO' AT STEALING MONEY FROM PEOPLE. AIN'T AMERICA GREAT... FREEDOM OF SPEECH! GOTTA LOVE IT ALEX.
  • Cons:
  • YES AGAIN! ALEX DAVIS IS A 'CON' MAN EXTRAORDINAIRE!

    Dreadful experience - SAVE YOUR MONEY

    I ordered my mold kit on December 8th. When 2 weeks passed with no kit, I started calling the company, to get the same "the voice mailbox is full" messages others have mentioned.

    I contacted VISA and they reversed the charges on my credit card. Then in mid January, I got a very apologetic call from Davis saying there had been an "issue" at the company they could not discuss, it was resolved, and they had just sent out my kit.

    I received the kit, ran the tests, and sent the materials in with a check for the additional tests. The original materials stated quite specifically that Davis would call me with the results, leaving a VM if I did not pick up.

    Instead, I got an email today from another laboratory (Fibertec) with a 1 page summary of the results - all of which were totally indecipherable to a layman. I am guessing that Davis had legal, financial or EPA problems and was shut down, and that they sold their customer list and "business in motion" to this Fibertec outfit. The whole thing is very fishy. Go elsewhere.

    Pros:
  • Nice website
  • Cons:
  • Cons is a good word. The company acts like a bunch of felons

    If you still have the e-mail addres from Fibertech... could you please forward it to me. (Shoasie229@gmail.com) I would love to be able to either contact or research them.

    Thanx!

    Worst Company EVER

    One word to describe this company. HORRIBLE. I bought an asbestos test kit online for $50. They charged my credit card and sent me the kit very quickly. However, after I sent the sample in I have yet to hear back from them. It's been over a month. I've tried calling (mailbox was full) and e-mailing numerous times. After reading all these reviews I'm really starting to wonder how a company could get away with this. Even if they ever send me the results (doubtful) I'm still getting another test done. There's no way I would ever trust a company like that for my health and safety. DO NOT SUPPORT THIS COMPANY. They are terrible.

    Pros:
  • ABSOLUTELY NONE
  • Cons:
  • They stole my money! They never did anything.

    Scam

    Davis found guilty of fraud. Fake site. No test ever conducted. Is there a class action lawsuit filed yet? If so, how do we get on the list of complaints? This was $40 wasted and I would like to get it back. i plan on calling the States Attorney in Michigan where these thieves are from.

    Bought: Mold test kits for $40

    Jay~ Even though the Davis's are from Michigan, Michigan's AG Bill Schuette's office was of absolutely no help. They were apparently operating out of Florida. That is where my check mailed to Michigan ended up being deposited into a (Ft. Lauderdale FL bank) go figure. Davis even had a bogus office listed at the same location in Florida. So forget Michigan and focus on the Florida contact I gave you & also the NSF agent may be able to help you.
    Alex Davis was prosecuted in Florida and is being sentenced in July. You can try & contact Steve Scully at the NSF in Virginia (National Science Foundation) 703-292-5024. Davis illegally used the NSF emblem which is a federal crime along with mail fraud. Or Southern District Court of Florida/Rosemary Williams 1-800-685-5392 Any info I may be able to help you with my e-amil is Shoasie229@gmail.com ... Good Luck!

    I test my home every year and the biggest difference I found with Davis Test Kits is instead of them just giving me the answer to the test-my result, they wanted to know what my concerns were and spent 45 minutes on the phone with me giving me recomendation and option to solve my problem where before, when I wouls get results, I was forced to search online as to what the results meant and how to correct my concerns. I would definitly recomend.

    Solved my problems

    I had Davis Test Kits test samples in my home for Mold, Asbestos, and Lead. When I received my report, it listed the name of the types of Mold and Asbestos but I wanted to know what I should do about it, what I needed to do next, and if my family was at risk. With one call to Davis Test Kits, I was able to speak to a microbiologist and a toxicologist and in a mater of 20 minutes I received medical advise as well as a detail explanation of what my results meant and it did not cost me a penny to get all of the great customer service. If you have health concerns for environmental exposure, I highly recommend Davis Test Kits.

    Pros:
  • 24/7 live customer service with employees who can answer your questions
  • Free consultations
  • Cons:
  • I had to mail back my sample
  • I wish they had a local lab near me.
