Yodle — Scam and Unauthorised Card Theft
To every small unsuspecting business beware; of the tactics of Yodle. This company is a scam. I was first contacted by a slick sales team to increase my business with internet sales.
Although I already had a web site and was receiving a fair amount of hits obviously a management trustworthy company would be a real asset. During our discussion I asked to show me real time examples of how Yodle could work for me. They took me to two websites and said "educated" me about "organic fields" as they put it. So on the web tour I was promised that my services in Solar energy would be posted on the first page with one of the key words they would create for my company to be targeted.
It seemed so promising I agreed to sign on with an initial $1, 604 dollar authorization only against my credit debit card. I said specifically that I wanted a review and report of my money invested if this turned out to be a pour source of leads. They promised me a web site and search engine within 2 working days. It actually took 8 business days. What I got was a virtual Yodle based software interactive site. Now after a week later I decided to check the internet and plugged in a local city and area for my services. Not only did I not see my company links posted what would have been posted before never made it on any pages. I contacted this company to correct it. They said my assigned associate would tweak our key words and we would be up and running. Again I contacted them and could not find my listings. I spoke with regional sales manage after he finally called me back.
Yodles team manager said that hits are an algorithm bases and that they auctioned sales clicks to Google. Fine I said than why is it anytime I use my key words and services I do not show up anytime? The company promised that unless I got clicks and sales connections charges would be "Rolled Over". My miss conception it what they meant was that you would be rolled over in the prone position.
It was during tax time and my book keeper informed me that I had charges from Yodle in excess of $5, 075.00 and for what? It turned out Yodle without my permission was running my card up without any statement invoice, notice and more importantly my expressed review and authorization. I have contacted my credit card company and have disputed the charges. I will say this to any person or company Yodle is a scam they do not deliver and should be investigated for questionable business practices. If any people reading this commentary have fallen victim by Yodle please contact me. I would like to head up a fraud report with simular experiences to expose this company.
