SEO Reputation Management at its best!

On March 10, 2006, two young people (a girl and a guy) knocked on our door. They were both blonde, good-looking and charming. They also both indicated that they were selling magazines for a contest, for a company located in Miami (were we're from).

Even though "warning bells" were going off (I sometimes get gut feelings about things), I decided to trust them, so my husband and I gave them each a check, both of which have been cashed. One was for a Rolling Stones magazine subscription, and one was for a Restaurant Coupon Book. The total was just under $50 for both.

At the time, I didn't notice that there was no phone # for the company on the receipt, or I would have become more suspicious. As the receipts say delivery may take 90-120 days, I waited until today (the full 120 days) before tring to contact them for a status. That's also when I examined the receipts more closely.

Not finding a phone #, I looked them up on the internet. Instead of a website for them, I saw this one, with many entries from different states.

As one of the responses gives a phone # (305-629-8604) for this company, I called it a few minutes ago. There is a voice mail message with a VERY young-sounding girl (possibly a teenager), that instructs the caller to send in copies of receipts. But it also gives a toll-free # to call (866-667-4346).

When you call that #, the same voice mail message with the same girl, gives the exact same message, but directs the caller to yet another # (866-776-7828.

When you call THAT #, you get the same message with the same girl, and it gives that # again (866-776-8604). This is clearly a scam, so I called our local police department today and left a message for someone to call me about this.

It isn't so much the money as it is the principal. If there is a way to get our money back and prosecute, I'm certainly willing to do my part. Thank you.
