Is this the same Sami Muduroglu who used to be manager of Fisher Athletic F.C? If it is then yes I'm not surprised he's got all of this dodgy stuff with his Internet Shoppers Guide and Seek.net. He was a disqualified director when he was at Fisher I think. Best check out the internet but I think him and his brother Alper Muduroglu had something to do with it all. Seek.net are the shirt sponsors of Fisher Athletic F.C. Check out their website. my advice would be to steer clear of Alper, Sami Muduroglu and SeeK.net, seek directory and seek.net and the internet shoppers guide to.
Wow! Me too. I advertised with seek.net and never got any interest from it. I has been a complete waste of money. The sales people hassle you and hassle you until you give in. The books are horrible, hard to read, heavy little things (about the size of a cd) and I have never seen it in any of the shops like they say it is. Not even in London. They say that it's next to the tills in tescos and sainsburys and smiths and also stocked in Borders and Waterstones bookshops. My brother works at the warehouse for Waterstones and he says that there is no records of any of these guides on the system! These "selling points" are surely illegal and in breach of advertising standards etc. I advertised in the guide to spain and the only place I've seen it is on the amazon site for 17 pence! AVOID SEEK.NET AT ALL COSTS!!
The company are using false claims etc. to try and get people to advertise with them. They then try get you to pay up when you cancel an advertisement. The company, so i have read is also being ran by a guy who is a disqualified and unfit bankrupt, Sami Muduroglu and his brothers Alper Muduroglu and Eren Muduroglu. I know of lots of people who are taking this company to court. They should be closed down. Do not use them!
I totally agree with what the other guy said about seek.net. thay are getting people to advertise with them and when you decide you dont want to or cancel paying because it's not what you wanted, they try and con you by saying that you have entered into a contract! I am also concerned that the owner is a disqualified director due to him going bankrupt! He should be in prison for that shouldn't he? My advice - don't go near these Muduroglu people with a barge pole, unless it's to stick where the sun don't shine!
Seek.net - more like scam.net!
The company are publishing advertisements for businesses without their consent and also publishing ads that are inaccurate or do not contain information that has been specifically requested by the paying customers. They then try to charge for it when the advertisers are refusing to pay! they are also claiming to have copies of their books in every tesco store, wh smiths and other newsagents etc throughout the UK which is completely untrue. It is not for sale anywhere apart from the "bargain bins" on amazon.co.uk for 30 pence! Nobody wants to buy these books as they are a complete waste of time. The company is owned by a guy called Sami Muduroglu who is an undischarged bankrupt and not allowed to be involved in any company until 2010! He has been reported to the insolvency service by several dissatisfied consumers. The other directors of the company are Alper and Eren Muduroglu. They are trying to get money from advertisers by taking them to court for not paying for advertisements that they did not want printed in the first place, or that are wrong because they do not have any contact details on them. These people are bullies and are soon to be investigated by Bromley trading standards. The "business" is ran on widmore road from above a restaurant/takeaway! Do not buy any of the internet shoppers guides and do not advertise in it either. They are conmen and petty theives.
