This company called & gave me a very credible story about the opportunity they were offering me to advertise me as the Only Realtor at the top of the page on Yahoo and several other websites.
They were also going to build me a website at no charge and that I would be so happy with the new business that I would get from this.  This would cost me $29.95 for the first month and would renew on the 19th of each month and if I want to cancel I would have to do it by the 16th of the month.
They Never sent me an e-mail to confirm but they did, of course debit my account. I am filing a report with my bank. Beware...

Tried calling and googling for site

AUTHOR: Geoff - ()

Had exactly the same problem with them. difference was they started with an ad on Big that would have guaranteed me results. Only reply in 2 months was a question from a buyer !500 miles away who had no interest in my state.

They then offered to do the Realtor website over the weekend and call me with link following Monday. That was six months ago, and i've never heard from them even thouugh they started debiting my account that day. 

Their confirmation email was last i've heard and they don't allow replies. Repeated calls have left me on hold for hours with no one to talk to or even leave a message with. Googling my name with "Real Estate" produces nothing new.

Googling the company produces many more complaints like mine...

I had a similar situation as this person.  They called me on 1/29/13 and offered me the program.  I requested they give me a min. of 3 local references from realtors using the services.  They said due to confidentiallity they would not provide references.

They also told me they have 22K plus realtors using their service and 98% retention.  I have to say I got suspicious when they hesitated to provide references.  Im sure out of the 98% clients they have.  At least 2 of them would be more then happy to provide a reference if they are that happy with their services.

All the company wanted to do was direct me to the website and show me recommendations that were made in their website. 

Im sorry, But I do not buy anthing without validating the service is good.  Needless to say,  I did not buy their service and Im sorry to hear that this consumer was not properly taken care of.

What most likely happened is that, since this company sends out thousands of emails a day, it was flagged as spam by your email provider and either sent to your spam folder or blocked completely. Instead of wasting your time filing a frivolous report with your bank that you are going to lose, why don't you just call the company? Have you even checked for your ads online? I guarantee you they are there. Grow up and handle things like an adult.
