Ameri-Source contacted our small construction business last April by telephone to "verify" our yellow page advertisement. Since we do have a listing in the local yellow pages, there seemed no harm in verifying that information. But when it came to discussing the details of the 2 year listing and the $299 cost involved, we asked if this indeed was the same yellow pages we advertised in. Their reply was, "I don't have that information".

After a few weeks we received a bill in the mail for $299. We wrote them a letter stating we did not authorize the listing in their directory and therefore we did not owe the $299. They continued to send us bills every two weeks. In the meantime we investigated them on the internet and filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. Seems like this was common practice for Ameri-Source and many others had fallen for their scheme. Soon they were harrassing us with phone calls until we told them we refused to pay and never to call again.

Now we are receiving phone calls from a collection agency. We soon will be checking with the credit bureau to write a rebuttal when it shows up on our credit report. Thanks for the idea of calling the Attorney General's office and our local police to report fraud. That's our next step!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

I know where they are located

AUTHOR: Qwigs - ()

Amerisource is located in Montreal Quebec, on Peel St. I forget the actual address but, if you want to nail them, there you go.
I worked at amerisource over the christmas holidays.. lemme tell you it was something awful.

Montreal is the telemarketing capitol of the world. ->This is due to the french language laws that make it impossible for english kids to get real jobs. So they take telemarketing jobs at companies like that.
So if you're going after a telemarketing company. There's a really good chance it's located in Montreal.
Oh jeah. The smaller ones tend to change their names frequently. I worked at one for a summer and they changed their name three times.

And here's a tip. If you want to get revenge on telemarketers, don't make snappy remarks to them. They just swap stories in the break room. Listen to their entire pitch, act incredibly interested in their product, then when it gets to the point where you need to give out your payment information. Hang up on them.

They hate that. You can take satisfaction in the fact that you 'wasted' their time and they're throwing a fit on their end.
