If you try to contest the invoice they will offer the employees DOB as proof the newsletters were ordered. They will also say you missed the 30 day cancellation window and offer to settle for half or the prorated portion of newsletters mailed. If you refuse to pay they will threaten to send you to collections. This company is a joke and has tried this same thing several times. Field employees who feel threatened and are afraid of being sent to a collections agency will often approve the invoice to get them to stop calling. The last time they called a collector tried to personally threaten the credit of one employee if she didnt pay from her own pocket, because her name was on the bill.
My best suggestion is to contact them IN WRITING. They will try and respond on the phone, but insist on everything in writing. They will immediately drop it once you start talking about US Postmaster, PA State Attorney General and Better Business Bureau.
Also, beware several former employees of Progressive Business Publication has started a new company called Business 21 Publications. The new company, while seemingly more legitimate, tried the same old tired routine to extort money from one of our employees.
