UPDATE !!!

Since International Risk Control (IRC) failed to communicate on several occasions especially during the estimating phase of the project, ever leaving to Joplin, MO, a certified Grievance Letter was submitted to IRC on November 28th 2011. The lack of communication forced me to find assistance through the Texas Department of Insurance (Consumer Protection) and Public Adjusters associations and other resources to gain an updated status.

On January 5th of 2012, I filed a complaint with the Florida Association of Public Adjusting. On January 11th 2012, I also filed with the National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters (NAPIA). On January 20th 2012 I received a letter from the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) stating that they received a letter dated on January 12th 2010 from IRC testifying that the client has not paid him as of January 12th; therefore, they cannot act as a court of law to determine disputed agreements between adjusters.

On December 28th 2011 a lawsuit was filed, but IRC avoided the served documents so the case went into default. As a result, they failed to appear in court which brought forth a judgment of the amount of $6,163.56 plus court costs.

During this time, I was conducting research with their complaints filed with TDI (Consumer Protection) and the result were (5) in 2009, (1) in 2010 and (3) in 2011 – (512) 305-7621. I also followed-up with the Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts office and as of September 30th, 2010 they have NOT been in GOOD STANDING.

On February 9th I received a email from IRC stating that the claims is still open and they will keep me informed and when the claim settles.

A simple corresponded letter dated 10 days from the Grievance Letter sent on November 28th 2011 could have avoided both reputations and licenses.

Remember you can take this further by reporting to the IRS and more if needed, but this is where I stay since they are cooperating now, with no complaints and now I’m looking forward on moving on with my career.

I wanted to thank all association and the Texas Department of Insurance (Consumer Protection) for assisting me on finding a resolution with International Risk Control, LLC.

"International Risk Control - CORRECTION"

AUTHOR: Eric Ramirez - () SUBMITTED: Saturday, April 05, 2014 Hello International Risk Control representative, I strongly recommend that International Risk Control representative gather their facts before publicly announcing or publishing statements that are not true. By stating that I/sub-contractor or Public Insurance Adjuster is “fraudulent” may ruin my reputation and will be considered as a “Defamation of Character, libel or slander”. As viewers can see, International Risk Control has not produced good harvest with their employees. We can explore: “On January 20th 2012 I received a letter from the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI) stating that they received a letter post dated on January 12th 2012 from IRC testifying that the client has not paid him as of January 12th; therefore, they cannot act as a court of law to determine disputed agreements between adjusters”, now I have “PROOF” of a check posted dated September 20th, 2011 in the amount of $9,500 which will indicate that International Risk Control lied to the Texas Department of Insurance and did receive a check prior to their...

In addition, if this was a fraudulent case, why would the court and (NAPIA & FAPIA) association agree on my claim? The highlight of the claim was Constable Sandlin (Deputy Mike Humphreys) at IRC's office location in Seabrook, TX ready to do a Writ of Execution (Auction property). To finalize may statement without giving away all my chips, what broke the camel back during my research was that International Risk Control was not in good standing with Texas Comptroller of Public Accounts for several years and I explained to Scott with Voss Law Firm that I will report International Risk Control to the enforcement department if a payment is not made within 24 hours and then a follow up with IRS. The payment was issued and paid.

(Future reference, make sure that every settlement agreement pages are signed!) Before I forward any information to Texas Department of Insurance in regards to International Risk Control deceptive, fraudulent and lies toward TDI and Eric Ramirez, I would strongly recommend that International Risk Control representative do not respond to this posting, as I will consider this as harassment and file a new claim for "defamation of character" or any other means to have International Risk Control not harass or compete with me or coworker in anyway shape of form in relation to business. As a final note: Although I will never know the true facts on the settlements amount of the claims that I estimated, the education of what not to do was learned! MORE BADFAITH TESTIMONIALS/COMMENTS ON IRC (CLICK & READ -(((Pissedconsumer.com - link correction))- In addition I received three other calls from a Public Insurance Adjuster (Mr. Friedson) and 2 law firm asking if I am willing to testify against IRC.

Barry McGonigal has ropped off many adjustors working for him in So Carolina & Florida also.

Some sued, others could not as shown above.

He has also allegedly ripped off close friends and family.

In my opinion, he is a Sociopath.

I am the widow of David G.Dye, IRC owed him at the time of his death in March 2011 around $80,000.00.

Mr McGonigal will not answer any of my request asking if any or all the claims my late husband worked on have ever been settled. i know the LaPorte Independent School District claim was somewhere around $15,000,000.00. IRC also owes my daughter around $12,000.00 for work on hurricane claims. I wish to make no personal attacks on Mr.

McGonigal only on his business practices which are most unethical. He never cared whether he paid his so called sub contractors a dime as long as they stayed in TX and worked on his projects, he did however pay for their lodging but not for food or gasoline .

He did cheat me of time I could have spent with my husband as David was afraid if he left he would never get paid what he or others he had brought on the projects were entitled to.Teresa Dye

Mostly email after email...no answer.

Phone call after phone call... no answer. To be honest I had pretty much thrown up my hands because I live in TN and simply cant afford to travel back and forth to Houston. It sickens me that I worked hard for this guy and got stiffed.

I dont know if you know David Dye but he was my father in law and brought me into the business. He has since passed and left his widow writing letters, making phone calls and, like me, unsure what the next move should be. Everytime I sit down and start researching my next move I get VERY angry and eventually walk away because it affects my mood for days which affects my family and my marriage. I would like to speak with you.

Drop me an email and I will give you my number. bradwilliamsmusic@yahoo.com

I was told by many people that if I sued he could just file bankrupcy and then no one would get any money. Now that I see someone else is moving forward I am going to as well. Pile it on this guy...

he deserves everything that he gets.HE IS A FRAUD and a LIAR!

Hello Brad,

I was very sad to see his crew (names listed above) are the same other than DOMINICK for his honesty.

At the moment, I have filed a complaint report with Texas Department of Insurance, Florida Association of Public Adjusting, National Association of Public Insurance Adjusters(NAPIA), Pissed Consumer.com, and soon Ripoff Report.com, BBB, and any other organization that I can find to help the consumers to be aware of International Risk Control and their team. I have filed a lawsuit against the company as of this year which is going to take another 3 months to have a court date.

May I ask you what have you done so far to get what you are entitled too?

Eric - it appears from the letter you posted from the Texas Department of Insurance regarding International Risk Control et al Barry McGonigal that their investigation has not closed the file and that since the complaint was inadvertantly filed in duplicate, one of the claim numbers is closed but claim number with DOC ID 970906 is STILL OPEN
