Corporate Background of “Incredible Discoveries”

According to the Florida Division of Corporations, Incredible Discoveries was a registered fictitious name originally filed on September 29, 2003 in Broward County. It expired on December 31, 2008. The Owner is listed as Immediate Capital Group Inc.

According to the Florida Division of Corporations, Immediate Capital Group Inc. was formed on September 14, 1999 and is located in Pompano Beach, Florida. However, the Incredible Discoveries website lists their primary location in Deerfield Beach, FL.

According to Immediate Capital Group’s Articles of Incorporation, Mark Alfieri and Jack Levine are the two founding principals of this company. They are listed as Directors in Annual Reports from 2000 to 2003.

In September 2003, an Articles Amendment states that Mary Eade became a new Director of Immediate Capital Group as both Mark and Jack are removed as Directors. Mary Eade remains as Director as stated in Annual Reports for 2004 and 2005.

In August 2005, Mary Eade is removed as Director and Doug Campbell is added as Director. Interestingly, in December 2005 (only 4 month later), Doug Campbell is removed as Director but Dawn Halloran is added as Secretary.

From what I can tell, there are now no publicly disclosed Directors or Officers of the company except for Dawn Halloran. If the company is so big, why is there no listed President, Vice-President, CEO, CFO, or Treasurer which are often listed?

I have received additional information that led me to verify on MyFloridaCounty.com that Mary Eade is actually Mary Philomena Eade who married Mark Anthony Alfieri on March 3, 1994 in Palm Beach County, Instrument #19940075339, Book/Page #: 8149/558.

There is nothing inherently wrong with this in itself but it does create the appearance that principal parties are unrelated.

I was informed that Mary’s brother, Eddie Eade at some point worked for one of the related companies relating to warehouse operations and client inventory. I have been told that Dawn Halloran also goes by the name Dee Halloran in the course of company business.

Address Changes

According to the Annual Reports of 2000 to 2002, Immediate Capital Group’s primary place of business is at:

22783 S. State Rd. 7 #103, Boca Raton, FL 33428

The 2003 Annual Report lists the principal address as:

6574 N. State Rd. 7 #277, Coconut Creek, FL 33073

Sometime after the filing of the 2003 Annual Report, the September 2003 Amendment and Registered Agent changes list the new principal address:

3850 N. Powerline Rd, Deerfield Beach, FL 33441

This address appears to be the company’s best known principal address according to the Incredible Discoveries website as well as various customer letters and documents. This address is in effect for Annual Reports 2004, 2005, and 2006.

The 2007 Annual Report lists another address:

2001 W. Sample Rd., Suite 101, Pompano Beach, FL 33064

This address appears to be current for the 2008 Annual Report.

More recently, the help of CorporationWiki, I discovered there is an Incredible Discoveries Distribution Services LLC and an Incredible Discoveries Inc. Essentially, there are now 3 corporations all using the “Incredible Discoveries” mark.

I would like to comment that changes of addresses in themselves are nowhere close to being unethical, immoral, or criminal. We are in the U.S. We can move anywhere we want anytime we want. However, most stable and established businesses don’t move around unless there is a good reason. I have no idea what the reasons for the changes were. However, I will say I am most curious as to why Immediate Capital Group (aka Incredible Discoveries) left their Deerfield Beach office location.

Court Cases

Immediate Capital Group Inc. has a respectable list of 20+ court cases listed in the Broward County Clerk of Courts website. They are plaintiffs far more frequently than they are defendants. There are currently 3 cases pending and unresolved.

Incredible Discoveries also has a respectable list of 20+ court cases listed in the Broward County Clerk of Courts website. They are plaintiffs far more frequently than they are defendants. There are currently 4 cases pending and unresolved.

I would have thought the number of outstanding cases would be the same but it appears that a few of the lawsuits are listed in the database as Incredible Cap Group Inc. instead of Incredible Capital Group Inc.

Essentially, with every listing of Incredible Discoveries as a party, there should be a corresponding listing of Immediate Capital Group Inc.

Incorrect Corporate & Fictitious Name Usage

In two of those press releases, they are intentionally or unintentionally providing incorrect corporate information to the public. The later press releases states that “Incredible Discoveries” is owned by O2 Media Inc. This is incorrect on two counts.

In another press release, they state that Quorum Productions is a division of O2 Media Inc.

As a personal comment, it makes me nervous when a company cannot get its true corporate name or structure right. Even with the errors, they are not consistent. Whether it is intentional or not, details absolutely matter. Some people might construe this “sloppiness” as being “loose with the facts”.
