Pardon Companies – Which Did You Hire?

With the Parole Board backed up and the unregulated industry that is pardon and waiver services growing saturated I have inevitably been fielding a lot of calls from people whose Canadian pardon application is in limbo (which, incidentally, is now called a record suspension). Sometimes it is the fault of the pardon company but sometimes it isn’t.

If you are one of these people and you are certain you are a client of the National Pardon Centre please feel free to give myself or any other of our counselors a call and we will be happy to go over where things stand with you.

However, if you are not sure you are a client of the National Pardon Centre you probably aren’t. We don’t let our clients sit in limbo. If we haven’t heard from you and there is something we need to get your file done you can rest assured we are going to get in touch.

Unfortunately a lot of our competitors don’t do that. If the client is not getting in touch with them they are happy to let sleeping dogs lie. The problem with this approach is that eventually the dog (pardon the metaphor and the pun in this case), wakes up.

When the client has woken up and realized that something is amiss with the pardon application very often he or she is unable to remember what is going on, who was hired and where the money went. Eventually a lot of them call me, probably because we have an extensive web presence and also because I’m willing to try and help people figure out what’s going on.

I do however have a responsibility to my actual clients so if you have misplaced your pardon services provider and you have no idea what is going on you are probably SOL. I’m afraid to be the one to tell you this but if you haven’t heard from the guy you sent a cheque to in 3 years your cheque is probably gone.

I am happy to help you find out where it went if I can but please check your records first. Look at your credit card statements or your cheque book or whatever you have to. Just get a name and it will be a lot easier to move forward and establish if the application is lost or if it can be salvaged. But keep in mind it’s probably lost.

On the other hand, if you are certain you are a client of the National Pardon Centre give me a call any time you like. My direct extension is below and I’m happy to let you know what’s going on.

And if you think there is a certain irony in pardon services providers taking your money and doing nothing, you’re right. Crime, after all, comes in many forms.
