This EZ Scrap Metal Recycling is a criminal outfit run by Richard (Halls). When we closed our warehouse in Chicago in September we had 8,200 lbs. of copper and brass (plus steel racks and machineries) that we wanted to sell. Richard came in, offered a decent price and then immediately had these taken out with a promise to pay. Since then he has been making every excuse imaginable as to why the payments are delayed; then started making repeated claims that checks have been sent. He has other cohorts that work with him (Sally, etc.). They screen your calls and only reply when they have another excuse; after a while this stops and will only send you texts and this too will stop after a while. He also made deals to buy our machines, other materials and lots and lots of promises. All of them turned out to be lies.
I own a scrap metal demolition company and found EZ Scrap through an online search. I was looking to build a relationship with a new company to haul some of my metal overload. I did a store demolition in McHenry and had them do rolloff service. They picked up a full dumpster of scrap steel. When I called to check on the payment they told me the check was in the mail. I started getting nervous about payment after the third time hearing this and called in. They kept dodging my calls, when I would call from a different line they would answer and have say that the office manager would call me back. After 15 attempts I still have not gotten a return call from her and she was never in the office no matter what time of day it was. I emailed the lady that talked to me and set me up in the beginning 5 times with no response. Its funny that when they wanted the metal they would call back within an hour. This was a small amount of money compared to the cost of going after them but I have started a case with the attorney general and the BBB because I don't want this happening to anyone else. I have luckily saved all the email and correspondence. Buyer beware they may take your metal but you may not get paid.
service was excellent they paid me higher that my usual guy and came out the same day highly recommended Thanks EZ iwould defiantly say it was easy!
will steal you blind ans never call you back
