I was contacted by Connor Walsh in regards to being selected "Top Dentist" for publication in the Global Directory of Who's Who. I purchased a 5 year membership for $499.00 and was charged a total of $558.99 with tax. I researched the membership site and discovered all the negative comments and "extra" charges that the company charges your credit card after the fact. I read the disclaimer on The Global Directory of Who's Who website that states you can cancel your membership within 3 days of purchase. I called Connor Walsh less than 24 hours after purchase and requested cancellation. He told me that was impossible. He also asked had I researched the company on google and read the negative reviews. He became defensive and defended the Global Directory and said he would show his gratitude towards my purchase of the membership and give me a "FREE" publication directory. I told him I was not interested in a free book, I just wanted a refund. I was informed that was not possible and that I should look forward to my publication. I asked Conner Walsh if he knew about Karma and that he should know the difference between right and wrong. He has to live with ripping people off. He told me to have a good day and ended the conversation. I have since filed complaints to the Better Business Bureau and Attorney General's office in New York.

#1 Consumer Comment

Who's Who

AUTHOR: Lorenzen - (U.S.A.)

This "Who's Who Directory", unlike the actual  Marquis Who's Who,  or similar reputable publications, is a complete rip off.  Rather than publishing FREE OF CHARGE the names and resumes of the people who are the leaders in their fields of endeavor, One must  PAY  to be named in this piece of work.  Not only that, but  ANYONE  who has the money can pay to be listed, no matter who you might be, or the level of your accomplishments,  if any !!  I am VERY surprised that you received a refund from them !!!

However, it remains my personal opinion that this particular publication's pages could be better served in one's bathroom, being used, for example, personal hygiene.

The Global Directory of Who's Who Refund

AUTHOR: dmd77 - (United States of America)

I was originally billed $558.99 for entry into the directory.  I attempted to cancel the membership within 24 hours and was informed not possible, even though their website claims their is a 3 day cancellation policy.  I involved both American Express and contacted the BBB of New York.  I also contacted the Attorney General of New York to issue a fraud complaint against Connor Walsh of The Global Directory of Who's Who.  I was issued a full refund of $558.99 by The Global Directory.  American Express was even impressed.  Research and determination worked in my favor.
