SR-Media Corp is located in Chicago and has been operating for years under different alias's and continues to scam legitimate business for advertising. This is the same outfit who for years has gone un checked and continues to pillage money from small mom and pop companies with the promise of advertising. This is a "boiler room" operation that has a handful of so called "editors" and "researchers" that will write a general and vague article about your company.

They will then ask for your vendor list and hound your vendors with lies telling them that your company agreed to share their list so SR-Media Corp can call on advertising on your entire vendor list. None of their magazines are audited and they make you believe that they have thousands of legitimate subscribers when in reality they probably have no more than a hundred per magazine.

 

If ANY of these magazines sales people call you and or your company simply tell them "no" and hang up the phone. [continued below]....

..... They got my company for almost 11 thousand dollars and we cannot take them to court because they had a waiver in their contract that our PR person signed and would not let us out of it.

SR-Media even has a collections person to call and harass people if they do not pay. How's that for ironic.

The company is run by Chris Schofield & his brother Andrew Schofield. They also have a puppet president CEO named Brian Reshefsky who is more or less an image magnet for the people who work in the Home office.

If by now you haven't figured out the name SR - Media is stands for "Schofield-Reshefsky" and Pheonix media is supposed to stand for "from the ashes" a nod to their old scamming names from the old schofield days.

Here is a complete list of their magazines.
