A note to the guy who left a message on the /link removed/:
Dean pulled the same crap on me. Said he had an operation in the UK called www.apexwindowfilm.co.uk/
APEX / Bekaert was going International he boasted. Dean showed me letter from Bekaert that they were going to use the name APEX to open a whole new line of franchise and Dean was 50/50 partners with them. If I get in now, it would be cheap. That’s what Dean was pushing on me. He said the Franchises would be selling for $250, 000 and up. So I jumped in thinking I was getting a great deal.
Dean showed me Bekaert financials, he showed me plans and insisted that he was the master mind behind all of this. My wife and I were excited.
I invested in my own APEX franchise and handed over $75, 000 for the Kingston to Toronto market. For the $75, 000 I was supposed to get trained, a plotter, 10 rolls of the most popular window tint, tools and advertising.
All I got was 10 rolls of Top Color Chinese window tint (not the 10 rolls of Bekaert Panorama film), a used plotter (Dean was supposed to swap it out for a new one. He said the new one was back ordered and it never came) and I was using his login code (license) to get the plotter software to work. As Dean said it was ok because ‘we were’ all one big company. The tools I could have bought myself at Canadian Tire for half the price. And the advertising he promised never happened. What a scam, what a rip-off!
Dean claims to have all these Franchises around the world but he is lying. I lost my money, my wife had to return to work; I work 2 jobs having to rebuild my savings. We had to sell our condo and now rent a small apartment.
I am pissed off but like others have said this guy is judgment proof. Stay away from him.
I contacted the guys in the UK and they never heard of Dean or have any business with him. Dean is just using their name to build his company.
Dean is a cheat, lair, scam, a fraud, a thug, a loser, a big time loser.
Like the other guy said, if you bought tint from Dean you best check to see if you got what you paid for.
