Progressive Business Publications continues to invoice us for a one year subscription to Facility Manager's Alert. They claim our previous Plant Manager ordered this publication. He never ordered any such publication, nor was he here at the time they claim he ordered this subscription. He had moved to another plant prior to the time they claim he ordered this and could not possibly have spoken to anyone from these offices when he was 5000 miles from here. They have sent their invoices to aa collections cmpany called ICR in NY. They continue to call us and harrass us and tell us they're...

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 5 votes
We received a sales call fom this company asking us to purchase a subscription to their safety training web site. I informed them, as I always do, we don't have the budget for any purchases, and weren't interested. They asked me if I wanted a free trial, and I declined, telling them that I wouldn't be able to purchase anyway. Now months later I received an invoice for $795.00 thats due for our annual subscription. NO phone number, NO fax number, NO email address. We've filed with the BBB already, I'd tell anyone receiving a call from this company to hang up immediately!...

Progressive Business Publications - Colorado, Golden - False Invoices, False Claims, Bad Business

PBP called me and asked me if I wanted to try their "Marketing Report" publication for free. I agreed to the terms to "try" it and to cancel within three months if I didn't think it was worth it. Three days later, our accounting department received an invoice for annual subscription for 20 people to "Selling Advantage" for $864.00 with MY name on it. It also stated that this was their "3rd Notice." Not only did I not sign up for that newsletter, I did not sign up for 20 people, I did not ever receive any report. Also, it was THREE days after the initial...

Progressive Business Publications - New York, New York - Demanding payment for phantom service

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 4 votes
I answered a call from a collections agency today demanding a payment for $290 for a series of Internet Marketing reports I have never received. They claimed that I signed up for a free report and gave the company my date of birth, which is binding. I emailed PBP months ago to notify them about receiving an invoice for something I never signed up for but they refused to acknowledge it. This company follows a bad, unethical if not illegal business practice and should be reprimanded for it. It paints a terrible picture for us marketing professionals.

Progressive Business Publications - Pennsylvania, Malvern, PA 19355 - Harassment and Fraud

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 10 votes
Our corporation never agreed receive their "newsletter" nor did we receive it. What we did receive was threatening communications from Cathy Rema at International Credit Recovery. I explained to her that even if PBP had contacted our HR person, he does not have the authority to bind the company in a contract for services. I explained she was on notice that the contract was invalid and that to pursue payment would make them liable for a false claim as well, but she insisted our HR person should have told them that at the time which made the contract valid. Her reasoning baffles me. This...

Progressive Business Publications - Non-Stop Mail and Calls

Posted:    Hassled
Complaint Rating:  100 % with 9 votes
I have tried on several occassions to have these people quit contacting us. Several of us have called, have returned their mailings, invoices, and CD's. Yet they NEVER stop.

They told us to return their items telling them we do not want any communications. They DON'T STOP. They tell us to fax them a letter on our company letterhead stating "Please suppress us from the marketing list" at fax 610-408-9906. That doesn't help either. Is there no any type of policing company that can regulate and terminate this company? I am tired of the harrassment from this...
