I need help in collecting a sizeable upaid advertising bill from a representative of Ameriplan USA. I have been unsuccessful in getting any response from Ameriplan USA or any of their representatives. Hopefully, there is someone out there that has experience in collections or a good suggestion on how to go about collecting this long overdue debt. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Here is my Report:
Winter Texan Expos, trade shows produced for thousands of northern visitors to South Texas, attract thousands of older visitors in our area each year. It is an ideal means of reaching this market. Our contract was with Ameriplan USA with a Myguel F. Marconi, broker for Ameriplan USA actually signing the contracts.
Two trade shows were involved. One was in McAllen
Texas on January 31 & February 1, 2001. The following was in Harlingen Texas on February 6 & 7, 2001. The total cost after discount to the broker was $940.00 and he paid $290.50 down with the contract. At set up time, he gave the excuse that his briefcase had been stolen along with his check book
and all credit cards. At that time, we had no reason to question this. Now however, we realize that this was probably just an excuse to avoid paying for the balance on the contract. He promised payment in 2 weeks.
Booths were furnished to Ameriplan USA & Mr. Marconi in both shows and their sales materials were distributed through their exhibits in both shows.
Considerable expense is involved in the production and marketing of the Expos and each exhibitor pays his share by the charge for the exhibit space. Approximately 8,000 to 10,000 people attended the two expos.
Six months later, we cannot even reach Mr. Marconi. We have a balance of $640.00 which remains unpaid. Email to Ameriplan USA does not even get a response.
The address shown is P O Box 815 Harlingen, Texas 78550.Telephone is 956-496-4995 and fax number is 972-702-0337.
As we dealt with Mr. Marconi, we do not have address or phone numbers for Ameriplan USA although I do have the Email address.
Please let me know if any additional information is needed.
