They pester by continuous phonecalls under the guise of an official sounding name. Should you make the mistake of speaking to them, they use a careful script in which they gloss over the price of their product as "three forty five" or similar sums making no mention of the decimal point. They then dupe people into a so-called no-obligation look at their reports.
Once their report is returned to them they falsely assert that it has not been received and follow this up by multiple invoices(some dozen or so in 12 weeks in our case) together with a variety of threatening letters.
They are currently the subject of a case by the Department of Trade and Industry to have them wound up in the public interest. Despite this, they continue their shocking practices and persist in wasting people's time.
Have they actually taken anyone to court? Is it just a blind threat to scare you into paying? If they have be sure to advise the judge that they are operating a scam which they have used widely in the UK.(See The Mirror newspaper article at www.mirror.co.uk-Sorted 6/9/02 entitled "Berger Grilled") They hope that some will pay their bombardment of invoices in error or simply in order to get them off your back. It is no accident that the sum involved is just small enough that some will pay it rather than enter into potentially costly legal proceedings.
