This post refers specifically to the company operating under the name Federal Pardon Waiver Services but is also a commentary on the general problems associated with this industry. If you want an honest team give me a call. At the National Pardon Centre your file is in good (and honest) hands.
Unfortunately I’m forced to discuss the various problems and scams associated with the pardon and waiver services industry too often. Obviously I wish I didn’t have to but if I can help just a few people by doing so then the effort is worth it.
Federal Pardon Waiver Services: The number one company I’m getting complaints about these days is from Federal Pardon Waivers Services which operates a number of misleading websites and is also serving fraudulent ads on Facebook. Since I’m getting a little tired of this story I thought I would share the misleading information and clearly explain it in the hopes of helping a few more people avoid the trap.
Below is one of the websites operated by Federal Pardon Waivers Services. The problem on this website is the claim that the conservative government is proposing to eliminate pardons. This is simply not true. For more information on this see the following blog post: The Truth about Bill C23B.
In a nutshell the Conservatives renamed pardons to record suspensions but it’s still the same thing. The changes also took place more than a year ago at the time of writing.
Notice how the website has no contact page. Instead it has an online form so simple it’s almost impossible to avoid filling it out. Once the contact information is obtained you can be sure you will be receiving a call from a sales person who likely has no interest in giving you accurate information. In case I haven’t been clear yet Federal Pardon Waivers Services should be avoided.
Next is another website operated by the same person. At least this time there is a contact page. Unfortunately there is also the same fraudulent claim on the home page serving as bait for uninformed users. Let me be clear one more time. There is no legislation being tabled that could eliminate pardons. For a clear and honest discussion of this issue click here.
After spending a bit of time on Federal Pardon Waiver Services’ website I had had enough and click the browser closed. But when I did look at what popped up. Just one more chance to try and mislead people. Let me be perfectly clear….again. This is not just misleading. Misleading would be telling people they can no longer get a pardon, when in fact the term pardon has just been replaced by record suspension. It’s not quite fraud, but it’s sure not the truth. This ad on the other hand tells people they can no longer clear their criminal record because pardons are being eliminated.
Unfortunately I just don’t have enough time in the day to listen to all the people who have been misled by Federal Pardon Waiver Services, hence this blog post. If you have a story about this company or any other please feel free to comment below. One day the industry will become regulated and this kind of operation will have a lot more difficulty.
For now we’re stuck with the same old problem. The only solution is to educate yourself and stay informed. A pardon is simply too important to leave in the hands of those who would try to take advantage of you.
And finally if you really need to talk or just want an honest evaluation give me a call. I’m happy to explain the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
