Urban 1 Inc Midwest Clearing Inc. Tugged on my heart strings to extort cash for a magazine scam Houston, Texas
As soon as Lynette left, I became concerned with the transaction. I gave her the check on Thursday, & my check was deposited on Friday. I never received a call from her boss. I did call her boss on Friday & he answered the phone. He stated that his name was "Tim". I said that I was not happy with the transaction & and did not recieve a call from him as expected. I stated that I wanted to cancel. Tim stated "sure, let me get your name & address. I will have a check out to you by the end of next week, Jan. 4, 2013."
I called Tim on Jan. 7, 2013 asking him where my check was. Tim stated "Oh, are you the girl that needs a check for $223.00?" I stated "No, my check was for $203." He stated "Ok, let me check with the girl to see if she sent the check out. I will call you back." Later in the day, I called back. Tim stated "Oh, I was going to call you back, but I lost track of your phone number. I spoke to the lady & she said that she had not sent it out. She will send it out today & I will call you back to give you a tracking number." I said "Ok.... Are you really going to call me back this time?" Tim stated "Yes". Of course, I got no follow up call. I called Tim on Friday, Jan. 11, 2013. There was no answer with voice mailbox still not set up.
I began to research online and found horrible ratings on BBB. There is an informative article written by the BBB. http://stlouis.bbb.org/article/consumers-tell-bbb-magazine-sales-firm-urban-1-duped-them-28806
I spoke to Bill Smith, Trade Practice Investigator for the St. Louis BBB. 314-584-6727. email@example.com
Bill stated that this a Fraudulant Company. Bill suggested that I call my local police department and file a theft report & get in contact with local media because they still could be in the area doing the same scam to others in my neighborhood. Bill Smith, Trade Practice Investigator for the BBB, stated that they have hundreds of reports for this scam by Urban 1 Inc.
