Troubleshooter Tom Martino 5

Having read all of these reviews, I think ya'll is a bunch of Peckerwoods that need to handle yo' on life and get on good with the next's one.
Tom Martinoez has been a good friendly folk to me, my wife, my sister, my Aunt and all the rest of my kin. He was a knowin' when the "Traveller's" come to town, we did good work on pavin' sidewalks, roufin' and such. Just cause we took off a bit, or stole a bit, or saw a bit of jewelry and made off it with it, it was a "Martino" thing. Takin' money for sayin' somethin's good AIN"T no CRIME in the here US of A! In point of fact, when we made money from someone that weren't right, like a retard of handicapped or blind or Mongoloidish, we called it "Doing Martino", haha!
But i regress. Tom Martino done does us a favor for when we swindle, lie and cheat, we only do it for our families, just like'm, causin we paid his referral service and they sent us a business... shoo we, it was hoffen' so many people! Now we only buy lots of drug houses to turn into high rise apartments and let dope fiens live in 'em, and die outside 'em, just like him.
Tom Martino never done us wrong. We love him like a bro, cause is he is just like us.

I have listened to Tom Martino for most of the years he has a program either on radio or TV. I always appreciated the effort he made to help consumers with real-life problems. Unfortunately, over the last couple of years he has sold out to the very businesses he once fought against. He is now promoting "ambulance-chasers", encouraging people to ignore tickets resulting from photo-monitoring or hiring an attorney to get out of DUI/criminal activity. Many years back he advised people to only agree to pay personal injury attorneys only for the amount they could recover over what they could get on their own. His show has almost become one big infommercial with advertisers prominent guests on his radio show. His TV show is nothing but an infommercial that just recycles the same people & topics. On top of that, his show now spends more time seeking opinions on topics that have nothing to do with consumer issues. In fact, he has spent as much as 45 minutes getting responses to one of his personal topics & then has the gall to apologize to a consumer for waiting all that time to get consumer help because he has run out of time. If he would just get back to what the show is supposed to be about he might be in the comfort zone he should be in.

I don't know what he does to stay informed but, I'm afraid that he relies far too much on inane opinions or internet research that his less than intelligent sidekick Mike provides. I was absolutely shocked that in the last month he was totally suprised to hear about teens getting high on canned air or by strangling themselves. This has been common knowledge for years but, that assumes he either reads a newspaper or watches newcasts.

I have used four companies on the Martio referral list and have been dissatisfied three times. One company even told me they charge extra because it is very expensive to be on his Web Site. Exactly what he fought against 20 years ago. I experienced horrendous problems with Brothers Plumbing (on his list). Finally I contacted the BBB and my problem was solved. Not hard to figure out who buys his lunch!

Tom Martino is a Scam Artist who puts his own wealth ahead of any issue...His teeth are bought and paid for..his roof is bought and paid for. Any company willing to pay the price...and I mean ANY COMPANY willing to fork over advertising money to Tom Martino is now part of the Martino family. I say boycott him and anyone affilliated with the loser!! His website online is screened when you make a complaint about one of his referal list companies...He WILL NOT POST negative f.b. on anyone advertising on his website. I used One Hour Furnace repair from his list and they charged like three times what a normal vendor charges to look at your furnace. When I complained to Martino to check it out...Not ONE reply and they would not post my negative f.b. about the company on the website. The Gypsy Martino even has his own radio show now. All the calls are prescreened as well so noone with a complaint against him or his companies on his referal list get a bad rap...Really everyone....PLEASE...if you want to buy snake oil and potions...go to a carnival and stop supporting this loser!!

You are a whore Tom Martino. A traitor to this country. You and your list. Does anyone in your group check to see if the companies you take money from and pump up are E-verifying? Hell no! I've seen your listed companies pull up and not one lick of english spoken, and a window sticker saying piss on la migra. Why don't you put the ez back on the end of your name where it belongs! Thoamasito Martinoez.
Nice teeth. Would'nt mind seein you shitting them teeth for a week. I remember when you came to this state, did'nt like you then and seein as how you and your list don't do a damn thing to safegaurd the American Citizen that has turned into loathing. So puff your weak little chest up with all the narcissistic drivle that comes out of your mouth.
A lot of us see you for what you are, and greed is your ticket to hell. Tell Paula she has a fat ass, and it is about to swallow her face.

This complaint is on the company "Core Health Innovations" (they are on Tom's referral list) that owns "lep-to-thin" and "Ignite Maxx" weight loss products. It's also about Tom and staff not helping me to resolve/negotiate a resolve of the problem with Core.

I had a complaint on the way the company handled my purchase. I called Mike, on Tom's staff, several times and he said he was going to talk to the President of the company and have him get back to me but he never did. When I tried to call the "Core" office - not only is the office staff rude but so was the President. They even were so brash as to say that Tom and staff were on their side! Why wouldn't Tom or Mike tell me that if that was so?

By this time I decided I had enough proof of the problem to turn them into the Better Business Bureau. I wrote everything up - sent it to the Denver BBB. They contacted me and said "Core's" headquarters was in Canada. The complaint was forwarded to Canada - The Canadian BBB was very frustrated as they could not get the Core headquarters in Canada to respond to them at all.

It's just another warning - buyer beware of companies having headquarters out of the United States!

So you ask, Did I tell Tom and staff all of this that I learned working with the BBB? Nope, I decided I was spending a lot of time and energy on this problem and it was obvious with headquarters in Canada and the Core President and staff as "friends" of Tom and staff - it was useless!

I have respected Tom in the past but I too am beginning to think that he can be influenced with money and strong "con" personalities.

Oh, and if you wonder if the product works - not for me! (Oh, but it could be me - not the product). Even if the product did work - I would never do business with Core again.

WE RECENTLY NEEDED NEW WINDOWS FOR OUR HOME. WE TOOK 3 COMPANIES OFF THE TROUBLE SHOOTER REFERRAL SITE. WE GOT THE BEST BID FROM A COMPANY CALLED NORCO HOME IMPROVEMENT. THE DAY OUR WINDOWS WERE INSTALLED THE OWNER NORMAN COONS SHOWED UP WITH HIS HELPER, THIS GUY WAS AN ASS. HE WAS SWEARING AND TEARING OUR WINDOWS OUT WITH A CROW BAR INSTEAD OF SCORING AROUND THE WINDOWS. HE BROKE OUR WOOD SIDING IN SEVERAL PLACES, BROKE 6 OUT OF 9 TRIM BOARDS, BROKE CLEAR THROUGH ONE OF OUR WINDOW SEALS IN THE BAY WINDOW, CRACKED OUR WALL AND TORE OFF ENOUGH EXTERIOR PAINT THAT OUR NEWLY PAINTED HOME LOOKED LIKE IT HAD BEEN HIT WITH HAIL.

WE HEARD HIM SAY SEVERAL TIMES HE MEASURED WRONG TO HIS HELPER, WHEN WE ASKED HIM ANYTHING, HE WOULD SNAP AT US AND SAY I HAVE BEEN DOING THIS 40 YEARS I KNOW WHAT I AM DOING. THE WINDOWS LOOKED HORRIBLE WHEN HE WAS FINISHED. HE PUT STRIPS OF VINYL ON OUR WINDOW SEALS AND AROUND THE INSIDE OF OUR WINDOW FRAMES ON THE DRY WALL. THERE WAS CAULK EVERYWHERE, BIG GOBS JUST HANGING OFF AROUND OUR WINDOWS.

I CALLED OUT THE CITY INSPECTOR AND HE JUST SHOOK HIS HEAD AND LAUGHED, HE SAID HE HAD NEVER SEEN SUCH A MESS IN HIS LIFE. HE SAID THE WINDOWS SEVERAL OF THEM WERE CROOKED, THE CAULKING LOOKED LIKE A 2 YEAR OLD HAD DONE IT, AND ALL THE BROKEN SIDING AND FRAME BOARDS WERE LETTING IN MOISTURE. NEEDLESS TO SAY HE FAILED THE WINDOWS. I CALLED TOM MARTINO AND THEY SENT OUT THEIR OWN INSPECTOR, WHO COULD NOT BELIEVEHIS EYES, HE FOUND EVERYTHING THE CITY INSPECTOR FOUND PLUS MUCH MUCH MORE.

HE SHOWED ME WHERE THE WEEP HOLES IN THE WINDOWS, WHICH DRAIN OUT WATER HAD BEEN COVERED WITH VINYL, WATER WAS RUNNING BETWEEN OUR EXTERIR AND INTERIOR WALL. CAUSING MOLD AND DAMAGE. HE SAID THE WINDOWS ORDERED WERE TO SMALL AND ALL THE VINYL ON THE WINOW SEALS AND FRAMES WAS USED TO COVER UP A MULTITUDE OF MISTAKES. HE SAID HE HAD NEVER SEEN SUCH A BAD WINDOW JOB IN 25 YEARS OF DOING WINDOWS.

HE SUBMITTED A REPORT TO MIKE AT THE TOM MARTINO SHOW. I TOLD MIKE I DID NOT WANT MR COONS BACK AT OUR HOUSE. WE WANTED HIM TO PICK UP HIS TOO SMALL WINDOWS AND WE WOULD START OVER. I WAS INFORMED BY MIKE FROM THE TOM MARTINO SHOW THAT I HAD TO LET MR. COONS CORRECT HIS MESS. OR THEY WOULD ADVISE HIM TO PUT A LIEN ON MY HOUSE.

BOY THAT IS THE WAY TO STAND UP FOR YOUR CONSUMERS. THE ONLY INTREST MR MARTINO HAS IS IN THE PERSONS THAT PAY TO BE ON HIS REFERRAL LIST, HELPING THE CONSUMER IS THE FURTHEST THING FROM HIS MIND. NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD HAVE SAID WE HAD TO LET THAT JACK ASS BACK IN OUR HOME, WHAT FOR TO DO MORE DAMAGE.

WE HAVE NOW HIRED ADVANTAGE WINDOWS & DOORS OWNED BY FRED MATTHIES PHONE 303-202-2228 AND IT IS COSTING $1,000.00 TO FIX ALL THE MESS NORMAN COONS FROM NORCO HOME IMPROVEMENT MADE. ALL OUR WINDOWS HAVE BEEN STRIPPED OF ALL CAULKING, AND VINYL, TRIM BOARDS AND SIDING REPLACED, OUR WINDOW SEAL REPLACED, DRAIN PANS PUT UNDER WINDOWS SO THEY DO NOT DRAIN INTO OUR STUCTURE. ALL MY INSIDE WINDOW FRAMES NEEDED RETEXTURED, PAINTED.

I WENT TO NORCO HOME IMPROVEMENT UNDER VINYL WINDOWS AND THERE ARE TESTAMONIALS YOU CAN LEAVE. I LEFT MINE AND OF COURSE IT NEVER WAS PUBLISHED. IT APPEARS ME MARTINO ONLY PUBLISHES THE POSITIVE TESTAMONIALS, THAT REALLY GIVES A CONSUMER A FAIR SHOT AT KNOWING WHAT KIND OF PERSON THEY ARE GETTING INVOLVED WITH.

SO HERE I AM, I HAVE PAID FULL PRICE FOR WINDOWS THAT ARE TOO SMALL, ANOTHER $1,000 TO GET ALL THE DAMAGE FIXED CAUSED BY NORMAN COONS OWNER OF NORCO HOME IMPROVEMENT AND I DID NOT GET ONE BIT OF HELP FROM CONSUMER ADVOCATE TOM MARTINO, WHAT A JOKE.

IF YOU ARE GETTING INVOLVED WITH NORCO HOME IMPROVEMENT, PLEASE E-MAIL ME AT ([email protected] )AND I WILL SEND YOU PICTURES OF WHAT HE DID TO OUR HOME AND THE INSPECTION REPORTS.

I've used Tom Martino's referral website several times over the last 10 years without issue. When we had to move from Denver to Altanta I used his website to hire a moving company to pack an ABF u-pack trailer. The moving company was Student Movers which did a good job of packing up the remainder of our house into boxes. Student Movers did a horrible job of packing the trailers with goods and the load shifted during our move damaging a considerable amount of our furniture.
After getting no relief from the moving company I tried mupliple times to contact Tom Martino's website and show and received no reply. So much for being a comsumer advocate Tom and protecting the public from crappy companies. You are as complicit as the bad companies when you don't respond to complaints Tom Martino.

After reading the last review I checked on Referrallist.com and could not find any landscaping company, or any company for that matter, with the name of Slaton Brothers. So perhaps Martino is not “just another paid off idiot that could give a crap about you.”

I own PC Answers, a local computer service company with a service center in Littleton and mobile service that covers the Denver Metro Area. I am a member of Tom Martino’s Referrallist.com and damn proud of it! People gripe that you have to pay to be on Tom’s list. Do they gripe that companies pay the Better Business Bureau? Do they gripe that companies pay Dex or Verizon to be in the phone book, radio stations to have their ads on air, TV stations to have their ads on TV, that companies pay to pass out flyers?

NO THEY DON’T! So why do they gripe about Referral List?

I pay tons of money to the BBB, radio stations, yellow pages, flyer distributors every month. Do I HAVE to pass an annual background check every year to buy those ads? Hell no! Martino’s people run a check on me EVERY year. I know, I’ve paid for them and seen them!

If you think the show doesn’t help people, let me set you straight. I volunteer to go fix computer problems for free when people are in a bind and call the show. I have helped pass out Christmas dinners to needy families that have called Tom’s show. I enjoy helping people in need and yes, it does get my company name on the air. If a business can get some publicity by donating their time to help a needy family, WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH THAT! So the people who say the show is all about money and not helping people are the ones who are full of crap!

Enough of my rant. Here at PC Answers we will continue to proudly be a member of Referral List, we will continue to give every single one of our customers fabulous service at a great price and we will continue to help people in need who look to Tom for help.

I wanted to hire the best retaining wall builders in the state, so I went with a Tom Martino recommended company called Slaton Brothers. Money was no object, I just wanted it done right. They gave me a very high estimate, but I went with them because the All Mighty Martino gave them his blessing.

They came in, tore up my new sidewalk and driveway with their equipment, not to mention the new asphalt that Lakewood had just put in the street. They started building the wall with the wrong block, and were eating their lunch on one of my neighbors pick nick tables, and threw their trash in the other neighbors yard.

Then they stopped building the wall to the agreed height, and began to fill it in with dirt. After pointing out the agreed height in the contract, they argued with me about having to get a permit to go any higher. I also pointed out that they said they would get the nessicary permits.

They built the wall another foot and stopped again 3 feet from the where it was supposed to be.

I had to keep pushing and arguing, and listening to bullcrap stories about how they had gone over budget, and were losing money on the deal. I got them to go another foot, but it looks dumb, and my yard slopes down now.

Worst of all, the day after they said they were done and came to get their money, we looked at the wall and discovered it was falling over on both sides. They sent the crew back out, disassembled the wall and rebuilt it again.

It still had a lean and bend to it, but they refused to make it right, so I only paid them half of what we agreed on.

I called Tom Martino, and he didn't care one little bit. He didn't come out and look at it, and he still recommends that company to the unsuspecting public.

I had channel 2 come out, and they did a story on the wall, but they refused to rat on their brother reporter.

It's been about a year and the wall has cracked open on both sides, and we expect it to fall into both my neighbors yards soon.

Don't listen to anything Mr. (thinks he's GOD) Maritino has to say.

He's just another paid off idiot that could give a crap about you.

I first started to listen to Tom 25yrs ago whe he truly cared about people. I had and still have a dangerous fuel related problem with my TransAm. After 80plus tries to solve the problem GM told me is was a design problem and I was out of luck. I am still driving a potential bomb! I called Tom's show and after an hour on hold he initiates the conversation by rudely chastising me for misprouncing his guest Rollie purify's name. I called him Raleigh. Very strained conversation with a recommendation that I take my vechicle to his friend Rollies dealership for another paid evaluation, 80 wasn't enough I guess and GM's comments about the design flaw and their unwillingness to step up was ignored! I have lost all respect for the man and some day he will realize that the all mighty dollor isn't nearly as important as integrety!! Tom, you're not the man you once were, and that my man is a sad thing!!

I honestly started thinking that my family was the only ones that are fed up with Mr. Martino.
He is a joke if i have ever heard one!!! We do watch the news station he is on, but anytime we hear his name or his voice we turn the channel. It is just so irritating to see someone fight on the behalf of the consumer when he himself is a SCAM!!!!!

I bet that not even 90% of people who use Mr. Martino and his referral list understand exactly how much you have to pay him to be put on that list. Its not a list of companies that do an excellent job or infact have a good reputation at all. The list consists of people that actually pay him to be referred. Companies do pay, dont get me wrong, I guess the power is all in the name TOM MARTINO, not the man.

I have seen him bad mouth companies based on how they perform. Reading half of these reviews on the man himself should tell you he is in the wrong business. If one company opened a list for him to see of the many and many and many consumers over time that have ripped them off, do you think he would really care??? Only if you paid him enough he would and at that i would question him at that point as well.

Basically people, please think for yourself on whether you should use a company or not. DO NOT depend on people who themselves dont do right by the people. A man in it for himself will walk on anything that gets in his way.

This dude is the biggest scam artist around.

As a vendor, we pay money to this clown AND NEVER can get ahold of their staff. Emails, telephone call and even their web based trouble ticket system go unanswered! Even registered mail goes unanswered. ALL WE WANT IS OUR AD ADDRESS CHANGED!

Here is the kicker. When we have written to Mr. Martino himself via certified mail he NEVER RESPONDS.

A hypocrite this man is. Can you imagine what he would do to somebody if THEY (a "reputable") business acted like HIM?? He would make sure they closed their doors FOREVER with his bashing on his radio show. Maybe renaming the site to something like paidreferrallist.com would be more accurate of a description of who he is.

We have gotten great clients from his site, so that money was well spent. But do it for the customer referrals. Don't expect Mr. Rip Off himself to be any sort of friend to the businesses that are paying him, especially for minor changes that you need done to your business address. BEWARE---

Martino has become a joke. He doesn't help consumers like he used to. He's become a wannabe political talk show host. He belittles cosumers who call in. He himself has gotten so rich that he's lost site of the little guy who loses a few bucks and wants it back or doesn't think he should pay. Martino needs to retire and turn the show over to someone who truly cares.

Immediately after hearing the October 25th airing of your show, we attempted to reach you by many messages that were left to you, or to whom it may concern. At this point we realize you could care less the effect of the comments you made to our grieving family. Mr. Martino...your personal opinion of what a family does with what's left of a loved ones remains does not change or end the pain & need of our family. If you ever lost a child, your heart may feel different. Mindy, a friend's heart reached out to help our family and wanted to be an active voice for us. As Mindy tried to share twice with you and your listening audience about an injustice by a Police Department's neglect, not once, but twice, causing 10 years of pain & suffering to our family. The important focus of the call was, the more the media tells our story (refer to 10/12/06 channel 9 news), it may help another family in the same situation. We could only hope and pray the power of Tom Martino would "go to bat" for our families justice. As we sat and listened in frusteration & close to tears, in horror we hear "Is the family poor?" How could the focus of our story get so twisted? We understand a radio talk show is all about impromptu and dissatisfaction, but this call was far from a bad haircut! I close with you, that we are a proud & hardworking family just trying to make ends meet, like most Americans are. ~The Mother of Jeffrey Roy Curtis

Tom Martino states over and over again on his show that is there is a complaint about any company on his referral list, he will investigate with full force. I filed a complaing against Grease Monkey 6 months ago, he sent one letter and that was it, i have tried to contact them twice a week for six months, I never get a call back any more!

As far as I can tell, many of the businesses listed on the Troubleshooter website think that they now have permission to charge more (and therefore, still rip off customers). When my garage door broke, I desperately looked up a garage door compamy on the list, and they tried to sell me a new garage door for over $1000. After getting a second opinion, it turns out the repair was minor, and I only ended up paying $150 for the fix.

I have a hard time believing anyone's advice when they demand payment to be on their list.It would be one thing if you were investigated and deemed worthy and then allowed on the list. Then you could be featured for an additional amount. The problem is that you have to pay to be on the list, one which may not and probably does not include the best in the business. Just because you are on someone's list does not make you better than others. I doubt that any of the people being advertised during this show are not on his list. He wouldn't even make his own list!

This is one of my favorite talk radio programs. It's informative and educational to hear the myriad issues callers come up with and the great solutions they often call in to provide one another, with Tom acting as host, mediator and Troubleshooter. Some folks don't like Tom's way of doing things, his famous short temper with callers who have crossed him and businesses he feels are doing consumers wrong etc, but I thoroughly enjoy the show, love that there is someone in the media who will actually put himself out there to advocate for people who might not otherwise have a voice and personally think Tom's way of running the show is half of what makes it a fun listen! People tend to either really like Tom or really hate him (I suspect many of his loudest detractors are some of the same folks who've found themselves in his crosshairs at some point). Whatever side you count yourself on, the show is worth a listen. There's a brief show demo at seattle206.onestop.net check him out!

I have found Toms show informative and helpful . I like the fact there is someone out there we can ask if we have a problem . I also like the fact someone is willing to take on crooks etc. He does get loud at times and my friends find that they don't like to listen to him because of that attitude. Overall I like the show except for the many commericals which I know they have to pay the Bills.

Troubleshooter Tom Martino 1

Hypocritical. Tom Martino has been well documented in what he accuses others- only to enjoy the same discourtesies. He gives bad advice- fortunately he has hired people to cover his back. Amazing how many times his own staff tells him he is wrong with his facts. Don't waste your time- Jerry Springer is more informative and helpful than Tom Martino.
