I received an email from Stephanie Goldman, owner of Family Creations, LLC. Stephanie was perusing Michael Charles Finacial’s now defunct website and discovered that her agency had apparently endorsed Michael Charles. The only problem is that Stephanie’s agency never worked with Michael Charles Financial and the “testimonial” was signed by an employee of SurroGenesis, Deborah Haworth. Stephanie has authorized me to post her email so that she can set the record straight.
I thought this was interesting…
I did a search online to find Michael Charles’s website… I thought it had been removed, but that was not the case. Looks like their site is
up and running! What bothered me was their testimonial page. Click on the link below.
Here is the quoted testimonial:
“Thank you for all you do. We are so excited to be working with Michael Charles. Your company is a breath of fresh air. We never have complaints from Surrogates or Egg Donors that the check did not go out on time. All payments are processed when you receive them. This is so helpful to our company and makes things go smoothly! Keep up the good work.
Deborah Haworth, Family Creation Surrogacy”
First, Family Creations is my agency name (plural) and we have NEVER referred anyone to Michael Charles. Also, the writer of the quote has never worked for or been related to our agency in any way. In fact, Ithink after reading your blog, that Deborah Haworth is actually an employee of Surrogenesis.
In normal circumstances we would ask to have the false testimony removed, but since since that is not a possibility in this case, I thought it best to at least bring it to someones attention.
Thanks so much again for all you are doing.
