This company has set up a very professional scam and are taking advantage of new business owners. I was called to advertise in a Relocation Guide for my County. Since I had recieved a guide when I first moved here, I assumed it was for that one. I agreed to pay the yearly advertising fee and agreed that they could use my Facebook page pictures and information to make an ad. I recieved the invoice and after about a month I called them to see what the status was. It's only then that I looked into the company and read all of the scam reports.
The main thing that stuck out in the complaints was that you will be the only person to recieve the guide. I asked Devri for a list of places that I could find the guide and she rattled off numerous businesses and government offices. I visited two of the businesses and the government offices for two towns and no one had ever heard of or seen the guide. Don't you think City Hall and the Visitors Center should know about a Relocation Guide? Also, they sent the ad proof and told me that all the books had been printed within the three days that I was trying to cancel my ad. It was a terrible ad and was just my business card...Jacey replied that that was all they had to work with. Coincidentally, my business card is not on my Facebook page, which is what they said they would use. I still don't know how they got my business card.
I have filed a complaint with the BBB because their rating needs to be lower than an A-. It is only that because they reply to all of the complaints and try to blame the customer (case in point, Jacey said that I was running a scam because I asked for a refund from them and filed a fraud charge with my bank so I'll get a refund from the bank too. Does she know how a fraud department works?). People either give up on their complaints or can't provide evidence that this guide doesn't exist so the BBB keeps closing the cases. They need to get an F grade so more businesses aren't ripped off.
Please hang up on this company immediately if they call you. They are a group of professional scam artists.
