Showcase Listing / Lies, Fraud

My business has been listed under the local listings on Google and Yahoo for 6 months now, and I have been really happy with the company that has been servicing the account.
Last week I got a call from Norma - which was funny because I had tried to get a hold of her for weeks and she never would return my calls - but what she had to say was not funny.
She was talking a mile a minute, going on and on about how they were changing their name, and something about them being the corporate office of the company I have always been with, and on and on... it was actually so spastic I couldn't follow it, I kind of just said OK and hung up.
The next day I got an email from the company that I have used and been happy with, and it stated that Showcase Listing was a reseller - I gather just telemarketers - and they had gone on their own, but that they knew Showcase was calling their clients and telling them different lies from they were out of business, to Showcase being the corporate office all along!! I couldn't believe it - she totally lied.
My original listing company even offered me free service over the headache of dealing with Showcase and their lies!!
I can not believe that Norma has the nerve to call people and straight out LIE to them! Showcase never did anything but take my information and pass it on to the professionals to handle - she totally LIED.
Shame on them.

    This is not true we use to resell for a company called Top Rank Listing.They were not taking care of our customer so we left them and went on our own.We called our customer that we had signed up and told them what had happen they were happy to know that they were going to get taken care of now.All the customer that are with us are up and happy.I have been doing this kind of work for the last 5 years I know what has to be done to get the customer up.We did not lie about anything.Also this was posted by Top Rank Listing not one of our customers.They are just trying to hurt us.They are the one that are lie.

    so it looks like Top Rank Listing also has a bad reputation - https://www.complaintsboard.com/complaints/top-rank-listings-c148402.html. I'd stay clear away from all of this.

    they claim to have a contract with google and yahoo to bring you #1 which is impossible, check google policy page at http://www.google.com/support/webmasters/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=35291
    all they do is take your money for few months until you find out it's not working then cancel with no refunds.
    ask yourself: If what they claim is true why their website is not indexed in google, page rank is 0, wouldn't you bring your site to number #1 if you really offer this service?

    I am a client of showcase Listing and they are a great company. they do as they promise and they are friendly, their customer service department is knowledgeable and prompt in their work. This Complaint is false and was posted by their former partner to create doubt about the company. Don't pay it any attention.

    I have been a client of Showcase and they made my business listing rise toward the top of the local Google listing in just a few weeks. I stopped using them for a while and then my page rank was not as good. AS soon as I called Showcase back and started my subcription up again, all of my URLs and Google local listings move back to with in 2nd or 3rd place of the top rank. The results were impressive. My phone rings more and I rank above my competitors. I'm a real person with a real business. Norma and her staff treat me like family when I call.
    I HATE TO SEE PEOPLE MAKING THESE BAD COMMENTS WHEN SHOWCASE been so good to me and my business.
    Sometimes I go out to a new customer and they are unhappy with the service they are getting from their present vendor. But they never mention the name of the Vendor they are unhappy with. I have always been taught never to bad mouth another business because it ends up being a poor reflection on me and my business ethics. I stumbled onto this page because I was doing a search for Showcase's website to see what else they do because I am so happy with what they have done for me. Mike Mc. Nashville, TN

    I as well have a had problems with SHOWCASE LISTINGS. Im a escort service provider. They had called me one day out of the blue, wanted to know if I wanted to put up my website on the main page of google. So if you go to the google search engine, and type escort adult services, detroit, Ill be the first, and my website will pop up. Of course I had to pay for it. At first the gentleman who I was speaking with, whom I totally forgot his name stated that it was only gonna be like 150 a month, then he said he had to be 350 for the first month. So I asked him, you know will it be worth my while, will I make some money from this. He said oh yeah, youll do great with a pretty girl like you" I only booked one appt off there within a month. That is not good at all. Not only have I been trying to call them for the past month now, they have not returned one of my phone calls. This is where I really got pissed, yesterday they decided to take money out of my bank account without even calling, seeing if I liked the website, or I wanted to go another month. That is very poor communication, and not good business techniques at all. Im very angry with these people, and would like a phone call returned, so I can cancel this ###.

    In reply to "PRETTY-HOT-AND-TEMPTING, " I have to say that this doesn't seem like a ligitament company that we would work with. First off we never tell a customer we are going to advertise their website or that it will "pop up" when someone searches for that type of service. We specialize in building profiles to market your business information on the most powerful search engines. Another thing mentioned is that you can't recall the name of the representative that helped you because most customers get as much information from the vendor as possible before releasing their billing information. What seems to be very unreasonable are the prices mentioned because they do not coincide with our prices for our service within the last year. When we sign up with a customer we state that they will be on reacurring billing. Unfortunetly we cannot be available 24/7 for our customers but if you call Mon. - Fri. 9am to 5pm PST our customer service will be more than happy to help you with questions or concerns you may have or cancellations even. We never guarantee you'll get more business with your key words but we do send updates on how your words are working out. We have much competion whoch leads me to believe they are the ones who posted this add not a real customer.

    if you notice, all of these complaints from showcase listings supposed "customers" don't even list their business name or any info to prove what they are saying is valid. So until I see any proof i cant believe any of this. also this company has plenty of customers on board and they only have like 3 bad reviews. not too bad. McDonald's has thousands of bad reviews but they are still serving millions of customers. that doesn't stop you from going their. showcase is number one in my book.

    HINT!!! Try clicking the profile name it comes up with a location... don't talk out of your rear end do some research... and when you were established in 1925 and actually "serve" your customers with real service instead of harrasing them with cold calls every month and interrupting THEIR business only to pitch BS and then when they complain you can't handle it? WOW

    BTW Prove Me Wrong... those business with a testimonial on this page never gave out their info either... you sure Showcase is not behind it all... come on showcase come up with an answer

    Ask any SEO Specialist this place is a scam. They don't know what they're doing except harassing potential customers and naive clients. If you think all the positive comments are legit then who bother to post negative?? Only frustrated customers. Positive comments are faked and written by Showcase Listing themselves.

    want to use the tool that Showcase Listing uses to get your listing onto Google ? Places . Google . COM (remove the spaces) ... that's it. All you do is go there and type in your business information and it's FREE. Why is Showcase Listing charging for this free service and not delivering?

    Show Case Listings has been a complete blessing to our company for our advertising needs. They are efficient, and put in effect exactly what would best benefit your company for their overall production. I have been with this company since October 2009 and I would highly recommend this company to anyone that is looking for advertisement. They are excellent and my review would be 10 out of 10!

    Thank You,
