Data Source 411 / Sent a bogus invoice
Datasource 411 called one of our reps to confirm our mailing address to send out an invoice.
They didn’t ask for a manager, store owner, no one that could approve the agreement to begin with. Week later we get an invoice for $750+
They’re trying to say one of our managers approved it which she clearly didn’t. Then they said our rep falsly acted as the manager and this was serious business.
That they had a voice recording of our manager agreeing to the service, when all they did was confirm a mailing address for an invoice we were supposed to be expecting.
Said in one sentence they could zero it out, but we threatened them and now they won’t unless I sign and fax something saying I Will not pursue this legally, or file any complaints. etc…
when all I did was tell them I’d 1st take this to a regional level so our legal department could handle this for us as they were threatening interest and legal action if we didn’t pay.
Then I’d report them to the BBB, as well as the competition buruea for suspicions of FRAUD.
I've done some online research, and have run across many many many mom and pop shops as well as home based businesses that were sent invoiced they never paid, or were in fact intimidated into paying.
2 Days after dealing with www.datasource411.com we received another invoice from www.directdatapages.com with the exact same scam.
Both Companies are a FRAUD. Don’t pay… Recommend you contac the Better business Bureau, as well as the competition bureau. The 2nd one can open a case file and investigate there business practices...
