The "bill" indicates that my "unknown to me registration" for services is in full swing. Interestingly, I don't have anything to do with the former business and do not have need for advertising services or hosting services. I in fact do my own hosting, through my affiliate status with a reseller GoDaddy account. Another reason I don't need their hosting. The letter, "bill" claims to notify me that a 30-day evaluation period is coming to an end, and that I will begin being billed $49.95/mth via the billing resources pages of your local telephone bill as ZWW-ISP. I actually triied to call the number on the billing listed as: 1-800-984-6666, with an immediate pickup with a woman's voice immediately informing you that you are being put on hold. I sat there from 645PM to 7PM with four songs played while on hold, with no followup. I tried a few more times, with the same what appears to be an automatic answer, before I went to Google, looked up their website as no other information is on the 'bill' except for the 800 phone number I alreay mentioned. The website that Google indicated as zipweb.com forwarded to http://www.zipwideweb.com/zww/app where I found a map with a link to register your business, so I clicked on it to see where that took me. This link took me to http://business.zipweb.com/ where I saw similiar services listed and another phone number: 1-888-529-7526 which I was able to call at 710PM EST on 3-22-2008 and leave a message that I did not sign up for this service and did not want to continue it if they have me down for their services. I also explained that their other 800 supposed 24/7 phone service only goes to a music hold and this number does not get answered. Once I post this today, I will get on the phone to my phone company to pre-refuse any billing from this company as I don't need or want their 'services'. So if necessary I will file an adendem to this posting if a further posting is warranted.
