Publishers Business Services representatives contacted me at my workplace on the premise of performing a survey. When I agreed to receive an informational mailing, Publishers Business Services subscribed me to numerous magazines at a significant expense of almost 700.00 to me without disclosing that they were doing so.
Publishers Business Services claims to have a recording on file that proves that I have agreed to this contract and to never cancel. They are lying.
I have called their offices on numerous occasions in an attempt to rectify this problem. Every time I have called I have requested to hear this supposed recording. Every time the representative agreed to produce it immediately, only to leave me on hold for extended periods of time and eventually be disconnected. My last contact was on July 12th 2005 where I spent over 2 hours in 4 phone calls in an attempt to correct this situation. I spoke with 4 persons and was treated the same every single time by Michelle, Theresa Riley, Regina King and a man who did not give his name. Only to be purposely disconnected, and/or transferred to recordings after a significant wait period every time.
It is obvious this is a tactic to frustrate my attempts to cancel their fraudaulent contract. I will never pay them a dime.
PBS and their owner Ed Dantuma have already be prevented from doing business and are under investigation in other states for fraud.
There is currently an on-going investigation into this company by the Florida Attorney General Charlie Crist. You can assist in this investigation by going to the Florida Attorney Generals Consumer Fraud complaint Website at...
and file a complaint against these low lifes.
Hopefully if enough people do this we can shut this scam down.
Also contact your own Attorney General and file a complaint at their website.
Don't let these guys get away with this anymore!!
