Pet Foods Stamps is a sham. No where is proof of being a non-profit, no where is proof of actual people being helped outside of 3 or 4 who "might" have gotten some food since Feb....no where is there an actual physical address or a working phone number (which was taken down a month ago)...no where is there markers showing how many pet owners have been helped or donations made. HOWEVER...what there IS proof of are many, many who have waited since Feb without so much as an email, returned phone call or letter to keep in touch with how the process is going (you can read for yourself on his FB page under Pet Food Stamps).. comments asking for someone to contact them, asking how much longer will the wait be, what's happened to our personal financial information, where can I see your non-profit information....on and on and on. They won't even answer the most simple question regarding who the actual supplier of the food is (they lie about that also)...how is the food delivered...how long can we look forward to food...are we notified of delivery to be sure we're home. Marc Okon is a liar, a crook, and a fraud. The NYS Att Gen has been notified as well as the FTC. I’ve already gotten my letter from the NYS Att Gen and PFS is being investigated, and they did NOT register at anytime with that department. There are many, many of us now, all filing complaint forms with the authorities. He is using our personal information, and what of donations??? Where is the money going? When you call the supplier, PetFlow, they tell you that they are linked to him to fill donations orders, but to date, nothing has been shipped. I have email verifying that also, from the PetFlow co-founder. So who is getting the donations??? We’ve caught him in lies, and still there are those who hope beyond hope that food will arrive for their pets. We are the elderly, we are the disabled and we are those struggling from one paycheck to another, hoping we can not only feed ourselves, but our pets who we love and need. He is using us in the worst way. I have been waiting for news on anything to show me I haven’t been scammed. Since Feb ! You would think that if you see it splashed all over national news, it would certainly have to be legitimate. One woman already has had her SSI benefits tampered with leaving her without her depended check, and her GreenDot card has been hacked. He’s constantly promising things that clearly won’t happen. Marc Okon is a nothing....except for having a big mouth and the gall to pull the wool over everyone’s eyes.
