Open Business Directory Ltd. / deceptive practices

1 CA, United States Review updated:

We received a fax on 1/24/12 from Yellow Page USA asking to confirm contact details for what appears to be an existing free Yellow Page ad. The information looked correct, so I confirmed and sent back. We later received a call requesting a similar confirmation, this raised suspicisions, so I spoke with our General Manager who stated that Gorilla Marketing does not advertise with the yellow pages and that this appeared to be a scam. I told the person over the phone that we DID NOT want to list anything or sign up for anything and to cancel whatever they had. The representative stated that he would.

Starting February 10, 2012 we started receiving a invoice for $1188.00 for an online ad. Our AP person called and told them we had cancelled, I also faxed a letter dated February 23, 2012 asking again that they cancel whatever contract they had in place. This was a scam. We have since continued receiving invoices and phone calls from this company trying to confirm contact details with other employees within the office.

This company mislead many employees within our office. The only authorized person in this office that can make decision is the owner and not individual employees. This company continues to fraudulently bill us for a cancelled service.

    Love is the most beautiful song, with its sweet melody coming from the bottom of the heart..Friendship is a pilgrimage of love from one heart to another..Do you know what love feels like? That feeling that makes your heart so warm you would never need the summer to come again
    I want a man who will accept me like his Wife. We help each other financially and we support each other very much...I want a man who will look into my eyes and says the most incredible things to me while love making. It's like he can get into my mind and bring me to new heights using only his words and his eyes,

    Open Business Directory is a fraudulent company. I keep receiving faxes from them stating that I owe them $1188 fpr a directory listing that no one in our company authorized. The purported address on our "listing" is t=not even the company's correct address. I have filed a r with the Better Business Bureau. The company responded with a long response full of lies. The BBB told me to ignore any future faxed invoices from this company. The BBB is aware that this is a fraudulent company; however, nothing is being done to stop this scam.

    This company sent a fax stating this is not a bill, invoice or statement of account due and that we are under no obligation to make any payments on account of the offer unless we accept this offer. They ask for your signature and give you three choices and ask that you check one. The choices are Remove from fax list, List as shown, and List with changes. Well I signed the form and check the box that said remove from fax list and now I am fighting with them because they perceive my signature as an authorization to place the order. Now I continuously receive bills for $1188.00 even after I sent them back copies of the order form stating to remove from fax only.
