Island Yellow Pages - Phillips, Thomas & Goldberg telephone fraud/harrasment claiming we owe for internet ads -we never asked for! St. John, United States Virgin Islands & Tampa Florida

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

We have been contacted by the island yellow pages by phone countless times. Once in 2004 they played us back a recording of one of the conversations showing that we had "agreed" to advertising with them. At that time, they spoke to a person here who spoke English as a second language and it was clearly a fast talking confusing sales pitch. Even playing it back to an English speaker it was hard to say we "agreed", but being that we are always carefull to pay our debts we were dumb enough at that time to pay it and ask to cancel the contract.

Now on one of the postings about this fraud I read that they even edit the tapes to show that you said "yes"!!!

I guess that labeled us as the suckers so now they are calling and calling for thousands of dollars since "we have not paid since 2004..." they even have a "lawyer" Phyllis Hardge calling saying they are taking us to court. We looked up that "law Firm" Phillips, Thomas & Goldberg and they have a 1/2 page web site saying they are a debt collection agency lending legitimacy to their scam. On their own web site it even states they are not a law firm as they claim to be on the phone. From other postings we understand that it is a person named David Phillips who is running this scam successfully for many years particularly praying on the Carribean who feel they have no recourse in the US. It seems that they are operating out of the US Vergin Isalnds for the same reason, but I understand from outher Fraud reports thtat they are also in Tampa Fl.

If they are getting us, I am sure they are plaguing loads more who may actually be paying them!!!
