N2 Publishing Stranglehold on their advertisers Wilmington, NC
*Consumer Comment: N2 PUBLISHING SCAM!
*UPDATE Employee ..inside information: A Response from N2 Publishing
***This is a warning to any business that wants to advertise with N2 Publication. I had agreed to run ads in 2 of their communities. After 7 months, this advertising had yielded no results at a cost of almost $5000. Our business hit a slow period and funds drastically tightened at the end of last year. I asked N2 to put a hold on my advertising until I was able to cure the $700 in arrears and had a clear path forward of paying for my ads. N2 pulled my ads for 2 months and then sent me a demand notice for $2100 plus penalties And allotted 2 weeks for this payment. They were billing me for the 2 months that no ads were published. I refused to pay and told them to cancel all future advertising. So the short version of their response is below. Take special note to the $6,480.00 in penalties.
Invoice # 91309 signed a non-cancellable contract on 05/03/2016 for 36 months at $700.00 per month. You stopped making payments after the November 2016 invoice which breached the contract. This left a balance due of $21,600.00 plus $6,480.00 in penalties. N2 Publishing would like to pursue $28,080.00 however, N2 is willing to accept a settlement offer if you are interested in offering. A copy of the contract is available for review. It is always our goal to prevent accounts from being forwarded to our attorney however, at this time we are gathering all relative information that is required by the attorney to forward your account for legal collection.
Thank you and look forward to your call. Professionally, Rick Lockwood Commercial Recovery Supervisor ***I have forwarded their contract to my attorney and I intend to fight this in court. If you look closely at the social media ratings you will see many similar complaints against this company. They are standing on the backs of small businesses in these communities to support a failing business model while forcefully having a stranglehold around the business owners financial neck. The only possible reason for a three year contract is they already know the advertisers will not renew their contracts due to lack of performance. I will keep everyone posted on the outcome of their threatened lawsuit against me. Tom DePalma
