my review of Tom Kish

In business credit,,,, credit lines, scams,, Thomas Kish, Tom Kish,, unsecured credit,, on April 29, 2011 by Jim Tagged: , , , , , ,

In late 2009, I started working with I was referred to them by an affiliate Tom Kish. Mr. Kish has multiple,,,, I’d visited the website and spoke to a sales person on the phone a few times and I was told they could help me build multiple credit lines up to $100,000 in approx 6 months, and they offered a refund. I still have the info. I cut and pasted here “Your $1,499.00 investment ($498 to get enrolled and $249 a month for 6 months) guarantees we will build an A+ credit score on your company helping to separate your personal credit from your business credit.” I got a slight discount because of a referral, so I paid $195/month. I signed up. There is a step by step checklist that clients have to do. Fine. First is to use their list of vendors – buy the vendors services or products and over several months, these vendors will report positive things on your credit report. They assign you a ‘credit coach’. Over time you can then improve or build a credit score for your business entity, in this case my new LLC. I purchased all of the services and products as instructed. I was told it would take 60-90 days for things to show on the reports. I waited. I contacted some of the companies to ask/remind them. 120 days came and I only got 1 report from one company. I was told to wait more. I contacted some of the companies and asked them for their reporting. I again contacted my credit coach. No new results. I was paying the monthly fee to AND paying fees to the vendors, some were $20/month, another was $50, another was $100/month. When I hit 6 months, I had paid thousands of dollars. I still had only one vendor do one report. TO PROGRESS in their system, you must have multiple reports from multiple vendors. In other words, i could NOT move ahead to the next Tier or Step until a vendor or two reported. I was stuck to pay another monthly fee to all parties. I did stick it out another month and still no results. The credit coach simply said I had to wait for the vendors to respond before I could move on. So I wrote the management of the company. He involved the credit coach and asked what the issue was. The credit coach even admitted that I did what I was supposed to do and didn’t get the results they promised. Here is the feedback my credit coach gave the manager “The client does have somewhat of a legitimate complaint unfortunately as the trade accounts we told him to use didn’t really work out. If they would have and he was able to move to step 5, then 6, he probably would have been just fine. When I asked Trent about this client on 8/4/10, this was his response. He needs to set up other accounts. We no longer recommend any of these companies since they had problems reporting. Just have him go in and set up 5 or 6 more accounts in the new back office.” THIS was after 6-7 months.They wanted me to continue for about 6 more months with new vendors, so I could progress in or up their Tiers and establish my credit. They wanted me to continue to pay them $195, pay the new vendors, and disregard the monies I paid them and the old vendors. They did not stand behind their guaranty offer, even though they admit their recommended vendors were no longer good. It was a known fact in the company, I have an email from Chad Lee, a corporate officer at with this information also. When I asked for the refund, he said because I was referred by the affiliate Tom Kish’s website, Mr. Kish’s company had to service this issue and maybe he’d provide a refund. I called, faxed, emailed, mailed Mr. Kish at multiple addresses, Never a response. No one will take responsibility. OVERALL, I followed their steps, paid the fees, bought products/services, waited and they didn’t do what they said. Then they didn’t refund my fees but instead wanted me to sign up more/longer.

In my opinion, avoid this one, feel free to email me if you want

  1. I was considering a similar package offered by Thank you for sharing your experience!

    • Sure. I believe that you can do it on your own. There are books out there that take you step by step. I think I have one if you want me to dig it up. You don’t need his stuff, in my opinion.

  2. I too bought the business credit manual video training for $645 but decided not to committ to a monthly fee. I know you can do it on your own if you follow instructions and research other information on the web. I agree that his fees and service are outrageous. Unfortunately there will always be people who will fall for his lies because it sounds so good. I would not invest another dime in his products.

  3. A few years ago I tried his program to get business credit. I was given the list of banks which claimed to have hundreds of banks to apply to. It turned out to be a bit misleading because there were only about 10 banks with branches in multiple states. I contacted every one of them and they were no longer accepting applications for biz credit. Tom Kish is a gambler [loves the horses] and con artist. There is nothing legitimate about this guy!!

  4. One Word— “Run”– when you see Tom Kish on anything. He is not legit at all.

  5. Wow!! I am glad I didn’t even pay heed to his never ending emails..I would rather explore and try and get my own business going even if it fails …but would be a learning curve. And as far as the credit I repaired mine by calling credit companies and getting removed wrong entries and pay bills on time.. Don’t get lured by mere words. Good luck

  6. Tom Kish and his company Business Funding Network is such a scam! He is not legit at all and will promise you all kinds of funding and stuff for a fee upfront and you can’t even get a refund. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!
