I echo that....FRAUD ALERT! THIS COMPANY IS RUNNING A MAJOR SCAM AND MUST BE STOPPED!!! Light Impressions is part of New Century Direct (NCD) that also owns Century Photo, Century Business Solutions, and one or two other companies. All of these "so-companies" based out of Santa Fe Springs, California. These companies are owned by BERNARD FINDLEY!!!! His direct line/cell no. is 203-565-8707. Don't expect to reach him, of course. The President is Gabriel Bristol and his direct line/cell no. is 562-321-4405 (apparently he responds to text messages, but hasn't responded to mine).

If you google Bernard Findley and NCD, you'll see that he led a group of investors that aquiried the companies in 2008. It appears that the scam started taking place shortly after. Also, the financial backer is Tim Irish at Meridian Working Capital (phone: 619-482-6868, x 111). He may not be directly involved in the scam himself, but he's the money source. I got him on the phone and he was not willing to answer any questions - he was a defensive jerk who hung up on me, claiming he "just found out about it", but it's been happening for a long time, so I don't buy it.

As I type this (Nov 8, 2011) their websites, including centuryphoto.com, are still up and running, and SCAMMING MORE INNOCENT PEOPLE! THEY MUST BE STOPPED AND SHOULD BE PROSECUTED!!! It's illegal to charge people for product that you don't have! Every single complaint is the EXACT SAME!!! How he continues to get away with this blows my mind!

In addition to the local BBB, the Santa Fe Springs Police, etc. PLEASE file a complaint with the LA County Consumer Affairs. You can do so online at http://dca.lacounty.gov/ This form is for individual complaints and they say they will investigate it, so worth a shot.

I want to take him to small claims court; however, I believe that since this is clearly a wide-scale scam, that the Attorney General or District Attorney's offices should be involved. So please file a complaint with the Consumer Protection Division (CPD)at the DA and here is a link to the downloadable form: http://da.co.la.ca.us/cpd/forms.htm

As stated by others, please make sure you file a complaint with the Attorney General in Scramento as well... THE MORE WE HOUND THE OFFICIALS, THE MORE LIKELY WE CAN STOP THIS SCAM ARTIST FROM RIPPING OFF MORE PEOPLE!

I also want to start a Facebook page to gather everyone who has been victimized by Bernard Findley and his associates. Please message me if you know how or can help do this. They'll continue to get away with their illegal and immoral business practices until WE ALL help stop them!
