Mold BUYER ...... BEWARE!!!

I want to send a word of warning to those who might be suffering from toxic mold in their home or they are ill from toxic mold exposure.  Unfortunately there are MANY bloodsuckers out there looking for unsuspecting victims to make a pretty penny off of.  In our years of experience we have compiled a VERY USEFUL list of scammers, their dirty deeds, websites and aliases they may be hiding under all to take advantage of people like you and I. 

Please check the list often as we like to make sure we update it when we find new scammers out there preying on the desperate and sick.

 

(Body) Mold Testing Labs and so-called medical treatment centers

  • The following names are operating under the same people, same scam and same doctors.

    Legally nothing can be done about it because they are not breaking any laws. They are forming many names to saturate the market and confuse individuals into thinking a "new" company has a mycotoxin test.

    Here are their scams:

    1. They claim they are testing mycotoxins for you and DO NOT HAVE any patents on mold testing the human body.  There is only one lab in the country that holds a US patent on mycotoxin urine testing and this company is called RealTimeLab.com
    2. They are trying to get you sucked into a medical scam of desperately flying down to Georgia to get what they call "mold treatment" at a $6500 or more out of pocket cost with no explanation. *There are multiple scam reports on this all over the internet. People saying they paid $6500 and went to an empty office building or said they saw fake doctors and tried to call back and the numbers were changed.
    3. They don't offer retake testing for $199 (like Real Time labs does) but want to charge you another $700 for another mycotoxin test that they secretly claim is ordered from a mystery doctor named Dr. Lange that DOES NOT EXIST.
    4. They have filled out "FAKE" real story submissions on our website 5 times. Using alias names and eroneous stories...all of the stories were similar..."I had mold, I found "lab name" and got treatment and now I'm healed"

    THEY ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING THEIR COVER and NAMES.  Here are the MANY names and aliases they are trying to CON people under:

    • EHAP legal witnesses (The Environmental Health Assessment Program or "EHAP" http://www.environmentalhealthassessmentprogram.org
      • EHAP Legal assessment is run by the same group of con artists that run EHAP Labs, Biosign, AML, MTCA, BioTrek Labs, NTCED.org, National Mold Resource Center.  They are relentless at making sure they take as much money from mold sufferers as possible.  Getting their money at the legal level, the medical level and the mold testing level.  These guys are probably the biggest con artists that the toxic mold industry has ever seen.  
    • EHAP labs (www.ehaplabs.com)
      •  National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease is run by the same group of con artists that run Ehap, Biosign, AML, MTCA, BioTrek Labs, NTCED.org, National Mold Resource Center.  One of the doctors involved in the scam is a Dr. Lange and to this day no one has been able to verify if this Dr. Lange is a real practitioner.  Suspicion is that it is run by one man with many personas and dialects.
    • BioSign labs (www.biosignlabs.com)
      • BioSign labs is run by the same group of con artists that run Ehap, Biosign, AML, MTCA, BioTrek Labs, NTCED.org, National Mold Resource Center.  One of the doctors involved in the scam is a Dr. Lange and to this day no one has been able to verify if this Dr. Lange is a real practitioner.  They were flagged and blackballed by "RealTimeLab" who no longer associates themselves with this group of con artists. Suspicion is that it is run by one man with many personas and dialects.
    • American Medical laboratories 
      • American Medical Laboratories is run by the same group of con artists that run Ehap, Biosign, AML, MTCA, BioTrek Labs, NTCED.org, National Mold Resource Center.  One of the doctors involved in the scam is a Dr. Lange and to this day no one has been able to verify if this Dr. Lange is a real practitioner.  They were flagged and blackballed by "RealTimeLab" who no longer associates themselves with this group of con artists. Suspicion is that it is run by one man with many personas and dialectshttp://american-medical-laboratories.pissedconsumer.com/rev…
    • Mold Treatment Centers of America  (678) 943-2111
    • National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease (www.ntced.org  (855) 776-8233 )
      • National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease is run by the same group of con artists that run Ehap, Biosign, AML, MTCA, BioTrek Labs, National Mold Resource Center and MoldVictim dot org

        {COMPLAINT} - Well-renowned mold toxicologist, Jack Thrasher who is highy respected in the mold industry has issues a complaint and disclaimer on his website about NTCED and Michael Pugliese.  Apparently NTCED has falsely claimed that Jack has endorsed their so-called clinic.  Jack leaves a very bold statement on his website and it reads as follows:

        "Notification about NTCED:  It has come to my attention that the National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease (NTCED) and the owner, Michael Pugliese, have been using my name to endorse their work and their company.  I have not given them authorization to use my name. I do NOT support and am NOT affiliated with Michael Pugliese or his company, National Treatment Centers for Environmental Disease, in Alpharetta, Georgia.  If you have questions, please contact me.
         
    • BioTrek labs (www.biotreklabs.com)
      • BioTrek Labs is run by the same group of con artists that run Ehap, Biosign, AML, MTCA, BioTrek Labs, National Mold Resource Center, Mold Victim.  The ring leader of this is a guy that often changes him name to Stephen A, Steve, Stephen M. Stephen Chance, Stephen M Chance, Steve A Chance and many more.  They were flagged and blackballed by "RealTimeLab" who no longer associates themselves with this group of con artists.
    • National Mold Resource Center
      • So this alias is under a YouTube channel with phone numbers linking back to the same area in Georgia where these group of scammers live. Again...these are the same people or same person using the above aliases.  DO NOT call them or seek treatment from any of the above centers, labs or centers as they are all the same person (Steven/David/Lang) who knows if any of the names are even real either.  These people are sick, con artists who seriously need to seek mental health treatment.
      •  

      •  
    • Mold Victim (moldvictim . com)
      • So this alias is under a generic website with phone numbers linking back to the same area in Georgia where these group of scammers live. Again...these are ALL the same people or same person using the above aliases.  DO NOT call them or seek treatment from any of the above centers, labs or centers as they are all the same person (Steven/David/Lange, Stephen Chance, Stephen M Chance and more names) who knows if any of the names are even real either.  Thes people are sick, con artists who seriously need to seek mental health treatment.
         

Environment Testing Companies (Mold testing)

Machines, Foggers, Air Cleaners

  • Proper Air Purifiers should ONLYcost between $350 - $1800 (See our article HERE on what to look for when buying a quality machine that handles both spores and the toxigenic by-products of mycotoxin)
    NO effective air machine or air cleaner should cost MORE THAN $2000 (For a room or house)

     
  • Companies recruiting other "toxic mold victims" to be represenatatives to sell you magic cleaning air machines for $6500 or more dollars should be investigated to the fullest.  I can't say enough creepy things about this buiness model and some magic machines they market.  But here are some things we found as well as complaints we have received from mold victims on the internet and social media forums.  

    The outlandish claims of people promoting high priced air machines have baffled anyone with common sense and we truly think the sellers, marketers and sales reps pushing this scam should be deeply ashamed of themselves.

    They are literally making claims that they've found and sell an air machine they sell for over $4,000 - $10,000 and that it can magically kill mold, cure herpes and ring worm and any other chronic illness any of their reps decided sounds good.  If that isn't enough they'll claim that with a touch of a magic button everything in your home will return to it's natural and clean state. (Well, only if you pay a low low price of $6,500 ore MORE!!!)

    The real crime here is that they know how desperate people will become who have a mold issue in their home and they might try to rally together to take advantage of this desperation to the amount of $4,000, $5,000 or even $10,000 and more.  Not only do they create their pricepoint so high they also recruited even more desperate people who have lost all of their money and possessions and are in need of a QUICK and highly PROFITABLE money making source.  I mean who wouldn't want to say just about anything to get a $1500 bonus check right?  So we decided to do a little research of our own and here's what we came up with:
     
    • To date: No real mold/mycotoxin/mycology experts, biologists, scientists or toxicologists support, endorse any of claims in a written statement on paper or online from machines being marketed as being used to "replace" remediations or save paper, porous items and furniture just by using a machine. 
    • Placebo effects were observed by users who will say just about anything because they really want to believe that this is working (false senses of security based on marketing claims)
    • To date: No company selling machines in this pricepoint provide any scientific evidence or funded scientific reports by scientific studies proving any of their claims of mold destruction, disease eradication or mycotoxin neutralization.  So buyer beware.  
    • Another common practice with over-priced and "too good to be true" air machines over $4,000 is they claim they are Featured on CNN?  REALLY?  They have been found to falsely use the logos of news networks to make visitors to their sight think that the product and the scam is completely legitamate if not "genius".  We decided to look further into this and googled several products, the machines they promote and the following network news channels but still to this date have found no featured mention of any endorsments anywhere.  We even went so far as to contact the legal departments of these news networks and no one has been able to supply us with ANY evidence of not even a mention of any of of these products anywhere on their main networks NOR the affiliated networks under these major players.  So who's lying? 

       Check out this amazing article written by Chris McElroy who is a marketing lead generation expert.  After you read his article it will all make sense to you just how crooked these "high priced"/"no scientific paid studied"-machines over $4,000 are and to what length they will do anything to sell you a $15 box of metal for $6,000 or more:

    • forbes-really-chris-mcelroy
    • Be careful because these companies have scammed a LOT of people into spending over $6000!!! on a machine with no scientific proof or legitimate studies. (but they'll sure tell you they've spent thousand on studies...where are they?) ALWAYS demand the lab studies, do your research on the dangers of ozone and the dangers of hydroxyl.  
    • Some of these companies get caught red-handed (screen shots) on facebook of creating false profiles to join mold groups and post false stories of how expensive over-priced air machines saved their life with no scientific proof of their claims. They have been known to saturate all of the toxic mold groups on facebook and prey on the desperation of unsuspecting victims of mold and recruiting mold sick people to sell their products so they can make money.  
    • Here is their strategy:  (Many many mold victims report)  "If you mention you're looking for an air purifier their unsuspecting reps will start sending you pm's like crazy. And their friends looking for their finder's fee will all comment on the miracle they've found.  It seems to be a tag-team operation, says one facebook user"
    • Some individuals were caught preying on mold victims by recruiting them to sell overly inflated-priced/no scientific data - air products to other people who have been exposed to mold.  The recruits are deseperate to make what they think is a few thousand dollars commission selling to other unsuspecting mold victims. Don't be their next victim.  This is not an ethical way of running a business.   It's ok to sell things to others, but do your due diligence and always ask for legitamate scientific studies on not only air purifiers but "so called" products that kill or destroy mold.  

Beware of Mold Companies that CALL YOU FIRST

If you are not inquiring about a mold test, mold remediation or mold assessement on your own DO NOT accept a "FREE coNSULT" or "FREE ASSESSEMENT from someone who pursued you or called you first.  This is an ongoing problem in the south Florida area as well as other normally humid or hot areas of the country.  View this video to see just how tricky this scam can be and how to avoid it:
