I was contacted by YellowPages.com, whose rep sold me a service that was supposed to promote and market my business. Once they got me to sign up, I never saw my rep again, or ever even heard from him again. The only thing they ever did was to take my money. They NEVER provided any of the services that I paid for. I NEVER got the first referral from them and therefore NEVER got any business from them. I tried for the entire term of my 1 year contract to get them to honor their agreement, but I got no assistance at all. I did get a lot of threats and intimidation though. Even after my 1 year contract expired, YellowPages.com continued to take unauthorized amounts from my checking account. When I spoke with their customer service department about it I was told that my contract was automatically renewable for an indefinite period and that I could not cancel it. When I threatened to file a police report I was threatened with a lawsuit and threatened with bodily harm if I did so. They called me at all hours of the day and into the wee hours of the morning, threating to ruin my credit (which they actually did have an effect on), threatened to sue me for tens of thousands of dollars if I did not acquiesce to their demands, and even told me that I should start looking over my shoulder, because bad things could happen to me. I finally got rid of them, but it cost me thousands of dollars. These people are nothing but thugs, who convince people to sign up for a service that they never intend to provide, and then they simply bully their way into stealing thousands of dollars from your bank account with threats and intimidation. I tried for a whole year to find an attorney who would file a class action lawsuit, but could not find one who wasn't intimidated by these people. I have been personally contacted by over 40 business owners who have suffered the same fate as I, but no one has the balls to join me in a class action law suit. So I guess they will continue to scam, threaten and intimidate people and get away with it.
