I was called by someone from SeeitClickit. They started calls by saying there are calling from Facebook, which from the outset is untrue. After telling me that they would target users interested in our products (we produce lesson observation videos for teacher training and school improvement) and would get a report straight from Facebook every month with statistics.
Here is what Alfred from SeeitClickit wrote:
"We will manage everything for you and give you a full statistical report from Facebook which we will discuss with you in detail on day 27 of your campaign."
Excited at the prospect of getting lots of targeted traffic "your advert will be shown a minimum 1,000,000 times to your target audience" . Your advert will become live on Facebook as of 17/03/2012. After having no report, no Facebook traffic, and no communication I wrote a letter to cancel and request a refund, in writing via recorded delivery. Here is the email they sent confirming this.

They added in a later email:
Regrettably we are unable to provide a refund on services
provided. Google Analytics is not 100% accurate and we recommended using a
different service in addition to Google Analytics to base your judgement upon.

Incredibly I got a call from them after a raft of complaint emails I sent. They said, Hello, I am calling from Facebook...
I said, I need to stop you there. Are you from SeeitClickit? Yes he said. I described the problems I was having and he said I will get someone to call you. Unsurprisingly no one did.
On advice from trading standards in Manchester I called the bank. Incredibly, despite the confirmed cancellation SeeitClickit had taken another 537 off my card as well as the 502.80 paid for the first month! The bank have refunded the second payment and are now investigating...
Avoid SeeitClickit at all costs!
