I posted a few weeks ago on my recent experience with Ameri-Source. Since that time, they have sent 2 more "past due" invoices and called 2 times, about 3 days after each invoice was received. The invoices are becoming more threatening. I check the caller ID and when it comes up Montreal, I do not answer because I know it's them.
Today, I received a call from IT Data Direct, which upon digging around on this website, discovered it's the same company. They say we owe $249.99 (Ameri-Source said it was $299.95, coincidence- NOT!!) for the last 2 volumes out of 4 of the Business-To-Business Directory under the Contractor section. I told the lady I have no record of any such book being ordered or received. She insisted one was paid for (which maybe it was by accident) and shipped to (insert owner's name here)'s attention in February 2001. Well, these idiots can't even add right- the supposed 2 year listing would have expired in February of this year, not in November. I told her I am not authorizing any shipment of a directory nor will I be paying for one. She didn't even attempt to verify our address so she must be a newbie. HA! I believe this website,which appears to be from the U.K,
is affiliated with the IT Data Direct that called here. The number that came up on my caller i.d. for IT Data Direct is 866-551-5565.
I've filed a complaint with the PA Atty General office, who forwarded it to the NY state Atty General office. I received an acknowledgement from NY a few days ago so I know my complaint is being handled. I intend on calling the RCMP toll free number and reporting to them also.
I found these other complaints- which bring up other names these frauds use. Some I haven't seen mentioned on this website yet so maybe it will be of some help to others. There's also certificates of name changes for Canadian companies in the second link:
Unfortunately, Ameri-Source stole $900 from my company before I came to work here earlier this year. They will not be getting another cent from us and I will do everything I can to help Pennsylvania do the same thing Vermont did. These people are pure evil on a grand scale. I am trying my best to get our money back but I doubt that will happen- I am just satisfied knowing I am helping to try to close these b@stards down.
