WTF IAC - Time for a new direction
Today was not a good day because our agency of almost 4 years has shut down, blacked out, without reason. They have our documents that we need (and all the other families need and no word on how to obtain them!).
Ok sure they say it’s because of a changing climate that they can’t handle it but what of the 550+ people you took money from and aren’t following through with and I mean especially those families who just paid you a few days ago. What of the Birth families who are supposed to have life time counseling that will no longer receive it?
I’m upset and so are all the other families. This was done in a most shoddy way. Of course no one employed by the agency can talk of it and neither can the board of director’s which 2 of them are my Facebook Friends so great but I’m not standing down.
This is complete bullshit in how it was handled and the CA AG will be hearing from me tomorrow along with whoever I can call.
I called an agency today and their response; I know we were completely taken by surprise – We’ve been working with IAC on a case we have and all was fine yesterday at 4pm when we spoke. Now you might wonder why that is and the answer is the Board and those in charge of the IAC didn’t inform the staff that they’d be losing their jobs today and so for all IAC it was business as usual.
IAC handled this in the absolute worst fashion than they could have. They really should have informed clients of the possibility, not taken on new clients or taken new fees towards PPC (google ads), and enlightened us who were waiting. They could have sent the email before alerting everyone by disabling our community pages. They could have allowed us the time to request our records be returned to us.
Now we are all scrambling for new community pages, help, and just plain support! Our ACs are gone stuffed into a black out with the bankruptcy. We can’t even thank them for their service and support.
The official press release said we were all notified and yet only about half of us were and after the fact. I got the email about 12:30pm and some others never got it at all (like my husband and many friends’ waiting to finalize). Whatever is going on here isn’t normal and needs to be investigated. I’m calling the DA in CA tomorrow.
If you are a part of the IAC don’t stand by – make your voice heard. Call the press, write the press, and make it public how all of us in the triad have been mistreated and our money and hope stolen from us!
I’m honestly appalled after 4 years and it’s going to take some time to sink in.
I now have to edit all our pages and websites to delete the now defunct IAC and as of now I have nothing to replace it with. Ya I have a lawyer on speed dial but I had hoped for what IAC promised and it’s gone. Time for more research!
