Killeen Daily Herald Severe Overcharge for Legal Advertisment Killeen Texas
I sent KDH an Order for Service by Publication in the beginning of January to be ran once per week for four weeks. They told me it would run $533.20 and since I needed it done right away I went ahead and paid them.
I found out today that it was not the correct documentation to be ran in the paper and needed to be a Notice of Publication and I was told this by the legals department of a different newspaper. They needed to put the information from the Order into a Notice of Publication when putting it into the legal section which they did not do.
The Times in Newnan is running the correct ad for the same amount of time for $90. I believe that KDH charged far above the accurate amount for the ad to be ran. $443.20 in excess to the ordinary pricing which I received from a different newspaper. So not only did they not provide the actual service required by the court but they additionally Highly over charged for the service. [continued below]....
There are laws in the state of Texas that are set to make sure newspapers do not over charge for legal publications and it requires the newpaper to use the lowest rate possible. The amount of difference from one state to the next is understandable but upon researching online found that the average pricing for the 4 day publication is around $120 total.
That is from proper newspapers who are not taking advantage of their consumers. In this case, however, they are clearly taking advantage of consumers who are required to do such publications by charging outrageous amounts for this service.
