If you believe you are the victim of a crime regarding your transaction with Renuen Corporation and/or its employees, officers and directors you can report it to the FBI using the following link: https://tips.fbi.gov.You may also file a complaint with your local police department.
Be sure to provide a copy of all documents given you by Renuen including the Notice of Commencement and Application for the Permit if your signature was forged on those documents or your signature was notarized outside of your presence. The “power of attorney” contained in the Renuen contract is not valid or binding under Florida law therefore Renuen did not have the authority to forge your signature on documents. See Florida statute section 709.2105.
Unlicensed and Uninsured Renuen Corporation Installers-If you have determined that the installation of your Renuen solar equipment/system was performed by an unlicensed installer and/or the installer lacked worker’s compensation insurance, you can file a complaint with the Florida Division of Insurance Fraud at: https://apps8.fldfs.com/first/
SAFETY ALERT—-Purchasers of Renuen Corporation solar equipment are advised to have the equipment inspected by your local building inspector or an authorized contractor/electrician to determine if the equipment poses a safety hazard or is otherwise dangerous or a threat to you or your family’s health or safety. Safety issues have been discovered with the solar equipment and the installation of that solar equipment.
To file a complaint against Renuen corporation for solar equipment, goods or services purchased from Renuen corporation, file a complaint with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation. Here is link to construction complaint form. Please attach all documents including any documents containing your forged signature or documents notarized by Kathleen Verzaro or any other notary who notarized your Renuen documents outside of your presence.
Below we have outlined the Florida consumer protection agencies that Renuen victims should contact to report problems and issues with the financing of Renuen solar systems and equipment by companies unlicensed in Florida under Chapter 520, Florida Statutes.
TO FILE A COMPLAINT CONCERNING FINANCING OF PURCHASE OF RENUEN SOLAR PRODUCTS:
The url below can be used to file a complaint against Greensky Credit or Greensky Trade Credit or Aqua Finance or any other financing company used by a consumer to purchase solar equipment, goods or services from Renuen Corporation. Greensky is not licensed to do business in Florida as a retail installment finance company. Aqua Finance was using Renuen as a sales/licensee to sell its home improvement loans and Renuen is not licensed in Florida.
Also, you may file a complaint against Renuen corporation for any consumer financing that was done to purchase solar equipment, goods or services from Renuen Corporation. Renuen corporation was denied a retail installment seller’s license on March 18, 2014 and therefore was not legally authorized to sell retail installment loans or home improvement loans to Florida residents.
HERE IS WEB ADDRESS TO FILE A CONSUMER COMPLAINT AGAINST GREENSKY, AQUA FINANCE, RENUEN OR ANY OTHER FINANCING COMPANY USED TO PURCHASE RENUEN SOLAR EQUIPMENT:
“CONSUMERS BURNED BY SOLAR ENERGY COMPANY.”
All Renuen customers are urged to watch Consumer Protection Reporter Todd Ulrich’s report on an Orlando couple scammed out of $30,000 by Renuen corporation. You can watch the news story online at:
The couple thought they were going to save money by purchasing solar equipment and systems from Renuen corporation but instead their energy bills went up AND they are out $30,000.
The Lerman Law Firm issued a Consumer Protection Alert on Renuen Corporation in August of 2014 due to its sale of illegal, unpermitted solar equipment and systems. Since that time, hundreds of Florida consumers have been the victim of the Renuen solar scam as reported by Todd Ulrich.
Thank you Todd for bringing this very important story to the attention of Florida consumers. Consumers should be aware that Renuen Corporation was run by Jeff Nemes, Lynn Nemes, Alexander Kim, and David Burrows among others. The Lerman Law Firm has included on this Blog complaint reporting information for Florida consumers who are victims of the Renuen solar scam so that they may obtain assistance.
The faith and grace of the victims’ families and the community in Charleston in light of this horrific act are inspiring. I spoke to the minister of a large church in Miami today and he reminded me that this is what the faithful do. They let God take control. And He has. My heart goes out to the families of the victims, to the community, to the heartbreak of a city that is based upon faith, love and brotherhood. But that heartbreak has not caused riots and strife-it has brought together persons of all faiths and ethnic races as one to join in unison as a voice for God, for peace and for unity. Praise God!
I commend those who fought for removal of the Confederate Flag at the capitol. We are one race-the human race. That is it. To my brothers and sisters in Christ in Charleston and throughout the U.S.-pray that our country will take the lesson that a group of God’s angels in Charleston has taught us. Their suffering has given us hope that our country can heal. What a Blessing! God Bless You All! Cathy
