I thought you might be interested in reporting on the following legal scam that many hundreds if not thousands of honest hard working business people are affected by. Two companys involved, might be others, one is QSL-Tenders - http://www.qsl-tenders.co.uk/ another companies is called BiP solutions - http://www.bipsolutions.com/
They have a website that offers a free trial to a tender list service. Most of these tenders are available free anyway, but honest and sometimes new small business people look at these sites to try generate more business.
During the trial process you are led through a series of pages where it says, free, free, free, no credit card of financial details are entered so you feel asif its risk free. The real terms are hidden from view and there is an innocuous and ambiguous line that states them - a truly misleading website...
The trap is that if you dont cancel the subscription during the 4 weeks you are liable to a full years subscription- 700 - 2500 +
Most of the setup emails get spammed, some people dont read or see the terms and say 5 out of 10 people forget to end the trial. What happens then is an invoice for the full amount arrives soon after the trials expire, they dont contact you within the trial period or speak to you at the end, just let it over run, and sting you.
They then threaten legal action, bully and intimidate people, they dont care a d*mn about customers.
There are countless web forums where people are in ruins over being taken for large sums of money from a service and company that doesnt care about its customers. They just try catching people with the free trial and they using strong arm, threatening tactics to get their money back, it is a Scam.
The governments needs to supports growing business and protect them from unscrupulous companies that can cripple new and existing business with these high charges that most people cant afford.
here are some sites reporting the scam....
