*Consumer Comment: I had the exact same thing happen to my store.
He complemented my store and said he was doing an issue around the first of the year that would be highlighting different female business owners in the surrounding area and would love to feature me and my store for a 2 page spread.
He then proceeded to pull out a copy of a past issue showing me a similar 2 page story.
He said I would receive the two pages full of photos of my store and myself, along with an interview and written article. All for a small donation of $295.00, he let me know that the original price for a two page add would have been over $2,000.00
After I wrote him a check:
He said he would be back the first week of November for the photo shoot and interview. I Never Heard From Him Again! No one would answer or respond to the messages or emails for months and months.
There has yet to be a photo shoot or interview and No One has called me back!
The same exact thing was done to the other female business owner who sent them to me.
$295.00 may not sound like allot to lose but with this economy any small business owner will tell you they would have rather spent that on a real marketing add rather than a scam... it is a daily struggle to own a small business. How can one survive with people like this walking around!
