    After speaking with Angel of the Willimantic Social Security Office, I forwarded payment in the amount of $34.00 to receive a copy of a vision evaluation that was completed by Dr. Angel directed me to mark the request 'urgent' and he promised to send me both an electronic copy and a hard copy of this report upon receipt of this request and the payment. Despite multiple phone calls and messages left - for both and his supervisor, Mr. John - all that I have received is written confirmation that the check was processed. An employee named Sean was able to verbally confirm for me that he had processed this payment and that Mr. Correa had received the request. However, nothing has been delivered, to date, and not responded to my phone calls nor has anyone confirmed the date of the mailing of this confidential document. I have also provided the correct email address in writing and over the phone multiple times but still nothing. I do believe that a government agency cashing a check without providing what has been paid for constitutes fraud and I would to like to file a formal complaint.

    I would truly like to thank Mrs Kelly who works at your Willimantic Social Security Office. I was there on Saturday, June 27, 2018 (11:30 am) to file information with Social Security. This was my first visit and she was so very helpful, courteous, patient, kind, and informative with all my questions. Just having her pleasant smile made my experience wonderful. You are very lucky to have such an outstanding employee who makes an individual feel so comfortable in your office. Thanks again Mrs Kelly for all your help!!! Mary Claire Mack Colchester, CT 06415
