Singleton's personal business philosophy is based on the premise that "strives to add value in service, understanding that a successful business model is based on value-added services, and client care". Furthermore, "We are one of the top ad agencies for helping small businesses create and understand their own brands.

In order to remedy issues like this Accountable Communications Inc explains the process thoroughly to their clients.

When asked to comment on complaints posted on Ripoff Report's website Mr. Singleton expressed that the reports on Ripoff Report have no correlation with Accountable Communications Inc, "the writer of the report bought a franchise territory to a different business that I didn't own, I just worked there selling franchises.

 Hello everyone

I had a gentle man call me earlier this year and talk to me about  and Peter Singleton. He inform me that he would register me for a workshop with Peter Singleton who is partners with google and that he can rank my

business on google on the "RANK HIGH ON GOOGLE"  And so I went to the supposedly workshop and met with Peter Singleton  at the china rose restaurant  here in Calgary where he conduct his meetings he convience me that this is the only way that I can establish my business, I have to go with his advertising. I was unsure and he was very demanding and promised that he can surely bring me alot of business and establish  my company. He even went on to say that he was the only company  here in Calgary that supposedly work good advertisement. I paid him the first $500.00 five hundred dollars  he cash my cheque and weeks went by and nothing was done. I call him and he started to make excuises about his pathetic website that he was supposed to make me. He started to argued with me over the phone basically talking down to me as if he is so smart and above me and anyone elses.

There was no talking to this clown he refused to listen after he took my money and refused to give it back to me. He has made himself millions of dollars and owned alot of property here in Calgary and God knows where else on everyone elses coin. He had his assistance print a letter for me to sign under duress some thing about we would not do business and that his computer guy will built me a website.  This man should be in jail for fraud and thief. He has these workshops to get innocent people out to it and he convienced this to write him cheques and that he would establish and promote their company and after he receive their money then he starts getting nasty and rude.   RUN,RUN FROM THIS MAN DONT LISTENED TO HIM AND HIS PATHETIC SERVICES. HE WILL PUT A SNARE ON YOUR FEET AND BRAINWASH YOU AND STEAL ALL OF YOUR MONEY.

Website was Built in a Timely Manner for $500

AUTHOR: Peter Singleton - (Canada)

I find it unfortunate that someone would sit through a FREE 2.5 hour Rank High on Google workshop where it was explained in detail that to get business you actually had to either use Adwords; SEO or some other form of advertising to generate traffic to your site, agree in writing to having a website built for a very reasonable price of $500 including free hosting for one year, wait until the year is finished to ask for a refund in full, and then when re-explained that a website does not generate business all by itself, post an anonymous negative report about that person. I truly feel sorry for you.
