Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Business to business scam that can cost $$$Thousands. They give no real advice and will not help negotiate with AT&T Reps like they said they would.

They promised to help save money with AT&T Yellow Pages. There advice consisted of reducing our ads on AT&T Yellow Pages . They claimed they could get the same ad cheaper (They couldn't). If I promised to save you money on groceries and looked at your bill then said eat only bread you would save money too.

There contract says no risk only pay us if you save money. We did not follow their advice but ended up spending more because we switched programs and went more online at YellowPages.com and less on print. We actually spent more money with AT&T but they took us to court because we felt their way of practice was unreasonable. They have a 1 hour meeting and then later say you owe them thousands of dollars (50% of your savings even if you spend more in other areas but reduce the ones your currently in.) In my opinion this is a scam that could cost $40,000!

I am super surprised that people actually still use the phone book, I havent used one in a decade at least and do not even have any in my home. They drop them off at my home every year and that week the books go straight into recycling bin.
