Beware of Carmel Financial

Thought I'd give everyone a heads up on this company so you don't have to waste nearly 4 weeks of your time and have your hopes dashed like we just experienced.

They (http://www.carmelfinancial.com/) supposedly have financing for an air cleaning machine that filters the air almost as well as a hospital. If you're like us you worry about your Autistic children and doing anymore environmental damage to their systems with dust, germs, etc. that may be in the air.

Everything was going slow (like I said about 4 weeks) but steady to get financing for the machine. We did not anticipate any problems as we had recently financed a $12,000 car loan. All t's were crossed and i's dotted and we were told to expect delivery this week. Then we found out yesterday, in an email, that since we rent our home our contact was cancelled.

That's swell...

We've lived here 5 years, have a good relationship with the landlord, but we don't qualify. I'd think that with so many mortgages going into default now days that we'd be a better credit risk. May want to avoid this company like the plague.

Thats annoying. Im sorry. I read that putting plants around the house will do wonders for the air... who knows.

I would worry about any company selling any kind of air machine and then using a finance company that only caters to certain groups. Guess what, if you change your air filter once a month with a good quality one, add some houseplants (not in bedrooms) and remove carpeting, you may get the results you're looking for anyway.

Thank you for the warning! When my son was just 4 months old he contracted phemonia. He had infectious asthma. We lived at that time in a basement apartment in an old house that had mold and etc. Air quality in a home is very important and can make a huge difference in our health. I am sorry it didn't work out for you to get the much needed air filter.

There is a fun website that has free articles on children and family topics. aaronsonlineboutique
