US Marketing Source Paid for lead list, never received it Granity City Illinois
*UPDATE Employee: This Company Is A Good Company
*UPDATE EX-employee responds: Same Owners, Different Location.
*Author of original report: Follow-up
What seemed like a repeat transaction has turned into me being scammed out of $500. About a year ago, I bought a lead list from a company called Prestige. That list was actually fairly decent. Not perfect, but had some good contacts on there.
Fast forward, I started getting phone calls from a new contact at US Marketing Source, saying the Prestige had changed names due to ownership changes. They elaborate a bit to say former partners had split, so Prestige closed and US Marketing Source was the new company with only the one partner.
I passed on the first round of leads because I was still working the old list. This time around, when they started calling, I decided to give it a try with a new list. I agreed to a $500 payment, and was supposed to have the list within 48 hours. This was exactly how it went previously, with no glitches. Everything was the exactly the same, aside from the name being different.
They day I was supposed to get the leads, I called the sales gal...no answer. Emailed her...no response. I called the number in her email and on the website...no answer at any of the options listed. I called first thing thing the following business day. I emailed the receptionist, info@ email and the sales person. No response. Nobody answred any phones. Nothing.
I have no seen a list and have not gotten a single contact. I filed a fraud report with my bank and they will hopefully get it reviewed. I am not holding my breath. It's disappointing because I'd already worked with this company before. Or, I suppose what was formally the company and is now some fraudulent company using the same name/tactics.
I would strongly discourage anybody from doing business with them. Heck, it's not business, it's a scam. Until I see a list, some sort of explanation, and something to prove me wrong, I just got my butt handed to me by a scam company. I should have seen it coming.
