YellowBlueMedia has called me several times telling me that I signed up for an online service that I did not sign up for. They threaten to turn me into the aurthorities and to freeze my accounts. When I ask them to send me an invoice in the mail they refuse telling me that it is against the law to resend mail invoices. They have successfully done this scam on me before as YellowBlueMedia and now they are calling claiming to be the National Collection Agency collecting money on unpaid bills. The person I talked to told me his name was Carl Johnson and that his badge number was BST2429. His phone number is [protected]. I told him that I would not pay him because I had no proof of the service being rendered and he told me he was going to take legal action to freeze my accounts.
A lady from Yellow Blue Media called Stating I signed up for a online premium listing when I know for a fact I never did. They said we owe them $899.95 and not only were they going to come after our company but they would be coming after me personally as well. Week after week they call wanting a payment and threating to turn us over to collections. These people need to get a real job and stop bothering honest working people!!!
This yellow blue media called our store stating that one of our employees had authorized them to run a minim Website and online listing add, however none of our employees knew anything about yellow blue media. We received the invoice that was for $745 and a lady has been calling our store for about a week stating that we owe them money. My boss finally told me to just go ahead and pay them (not knowing it was a scam). So we gave them the check number over the phone and she hung up. Right after I got off the phone with her we looked them up on the computer and realized they were not a real company, I called the bank and had them stop payment on the check. It's just too funny that they had hounded us for a week but when we call them after I gave her the check number no one answered!! So me and my co worker sent her some very nice messages and a great fax! SO SCAM WAS ON THEM!!!
I received an invoice from Yellow Blue Media claiming that our facility owed them $799.00. I had never heard of them so I called to get more information. I was told that they called & spoke with one of our employees & got authorization to create a "mini web-site & on-line listing". The operator then proceeded to play a recording for me where my employee clearly stated that she was "Activity Coordinator" - yet she did say yes to the question are you interested in advertising. English is her 2nd language & she didn't realize that they were selling something.
After listening to the message I spoke to the operator & explained that that employee is not employed in a position which allows her to obligate us to any contracts. The operator then stated that she was sufficient because she answered the telephone. Then I pointed out that a janitor could answer the telephone too.
She said that the services cost $90 a month - and after I explained that this was the 1st billing we'd even received on this issue she didn't know what to say. I then told her we were not accepting the charges.
I then wrote a letter to them to dispute the charges & mailed it within the 90 days requested on the invoice. And then I mailed it right away.
We were never furnished with a proof to sign off on or any of the actual content or location of this so called "mini web-site". For all I know it doesn't even exist??
I recieved a phone call this morning (2/4/11) from a Jamaican accented man informing me I should have recieved a letter in the mail last month regaurding my delinquent payment for the 2010 year for the advertising I purchased on Yellow blue Media. Scince starting my business I have yet to buy any advertising from anyone. My supposed bill was $756 . I do have caller I.D. and the phone Number I got was [protected] so perhaps I can call them back we shall see what that reveals. These jackwagon(lol) scammers need to get a clue. Don't listen to them thinking their records are better then your memory. I just called the number back and it came on with a disconnection notice. Pay them if you bought something but if you didn't then report them on here then to the police they can get the info to the AG of your state.
A man called & asked for verification of my business name & address, which I verified. He then indicated that I have been listed on their online service for a year, that it was the end of the year and that I now owed them over $ 700. How do I want to send it to them?
I told him that I had never heard of them and that I do not do any businesss on the phone. Furthermore, I did NOT agree to anything with that company. He insisted that I had agreed to this advertising. I then insisted on proof of this. He indicated that he would get it and call me back. I don't know if I will be hearing from them again. His phone # is [protected]. Any suggestions on how to fight this if he persists?
WOW! I just read several other posts moments after someone from Yellow Blue Media tried to scam me. $700 + seems to be the magic number for them. I kept telling this guy I had never heard of Yellow Blue Media and that we never agreed to or signed any advertising contract for this stupid service. He kept saying my husband did it, kept calling him Paul and then would change it to John (which is his name). I told him I handle the advertising, I had NOTHING in my files on his company, and I demanded he stop this unauthorized listing. When I demanded a copy of the signed agreement along with the invoice he said he would be sending, he hung up on me! I didn't think to get a phone number or his name, but will in the future if they call back. And a complaint to the AZ Attorney General's office is now in order!! He also had some sort of accent, so don't know if he was calling from out of the country or in the states. I am too cheap to pay for caller ID!
I received a call on my cell phone on Monday, August 16, 2010, by a man claiming he is from the Yellow Page...

I received a call from a salesman from this "SO CALLED" Yellow Blue Media, stating that we had authorized an internet business listing and that we owed money for last year and that they would send an invoice. He also wanted to know if we wanted to renew. I told him that I am the only one in the company that would have authorized this, and that I didn't. It is a company policy that we don't. I told him not to send the invoice and no renewal because we never ordered in the first place, and that his company is a fraud. He threaten to turn this over to collections as he hung up the phone. I immediately googled the company to find that indeed they were listed as a scam/fraudulent company.
I got a phone call from a woman claiming I owe Yellow Blue Media hundreds of dollars for an internet listing on their site. Beware of this scam! When I told them that I never heard of them, they told me that they had a recorded tape of my agreeing to the service. They have called and threatened several times. The most recent was a call from what they are telling me is Trans Union Credit Collections in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Contact your state attorney generals office and make a claim ASAP. Contact US Department of Justice at http://www.usdoj.gov/contact-us.html and make a claim
Stop this group of criminals!
We have the very same thing going on. A phone call made to threaten collections of on line web advertising. We have never heard of them before. They state that they have a recording of us agreeing to their services. They did send a hard copy bill to us. We live in Utah. The company address is in Nevada.
I am so glad I found this web site to find out it really is a scam! Thanks to everyone.
I am going to submit a letter to the Consumer Protection of Utah and the AG's office of Nevada. I will include a copy of the invoice to show mail fraud also.
I just got a call from these people verifiying information and then asking if I wanted to make any changes and said no and then they said where do we send the invoice for $700 for last year
I received a call today from Yellow Blue Media trying to say they are needing to verify my address to be listed in this online service - which I have been listed in for the past year. This listing was never authorized by anyone in my company. they tried to tell me that there was an outstanding invoice for over $700 that they would need to collect (BS). While I was on the phone with these scammers I looked them up on line and found complaints listed on this website. Thanks to what I read and other's experiences I was able to recognize them for what they are - SCAMMERS!
They need to be shut down permanently!! Be aware and be careful of what you say because they also try to rec ord the verification process. Luckily because of the complaints on this website I shut them down quickly!
