I own an architectural firm in California and I have had a few experiences with these so called publications. A few years ago I was contacted by County Cub Life (www.countryclublife.com) . I signed up with the company and ran a full page ad in their magazine. I figured what harm could it do? A few months passed and I never received my promised edition of the magazine. I called them on numerous occasions and complained and I was told that they were late getting the magazine out. I finally received a copy 8 months later, well after the summer golf season. It was nothing likewhat I had been told it would be. I was a small booklet filled with old plagiarized articles and 80 percent of it was ads, in sum it was a coupon book. I went to the clubs on the list they gave me armed with my booklet and what I found was even more astonishing. The affluent clubs on the list stated that they “never” accept free publications like what I had shown them. [continued below]....
The reason I am writing this is I am committed to informing the public about these scams. I do this because just the other week I was contacted by “The Country Club Magazine”, www.clubadvertising.com. The pitch sounded familiar so I looked at the website. It was exactly the same as the previous website that I was scammed from (see above). The same magazine as well. Apparently they ran into legal problems, changed the name of the website and started up again. Do a search for scams and rip-off reports for the countyrclublife.com and you will find what you are looking for. During my search I also found that they are also scamming people with Google adwords and adsense at http://weblocalmarketing.com/ All three websites listed this address as their headquarters: 401 East Las Olas Boulevard, Suite 130-238, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301. Who know what else they are into. I did notice that their website says they are the exclusive publishers of “Reaching the Green” magazine. I will look into that as well and inform you in my next update.
