Yellow Pages Directories
Yellow Pages Directories Yellow Pages Fradulent and deceptive advertising Carrollton, Texas
20th of Apr, 2011 by User382217
There was a false and misleading postcard request sent to my office to confirm and correct our "Yellow Pages" listing. One of our front desk secretaries corrected the phone number and address and returned to the "phone company". If you actually read the small print, this was not the phone company's request (Verizon, NJ) but a company in Carrollton TX. The misleading request also noted that by completing the form, you gave the company right to "automatically renew" every 12months. Our secretary thought that she was filling something out for Verizon Yellow Pages, in NJ. She corrected the errors in the listing and mailed in. Now I have received letters from a collection agency...The Law Offices of WC French (who doesn't even exist???). I tried to call and explain the error and there is no such lawyer, WC French. I will file a Better Business Bureau complaint against the Yellow Pages Directories Company that sent the misleading request to the office. This is not the first time one of the front desk staff accidentally "fell" for this trick from this company. They did the same thing in my Paramus office two years ago. I am not paying them the $327.80 because I never signed the contract, and I never received any service in return. Their request for an address and phone number correction from teh "Yellow Pages" actually enrolles you in a service that does NOT exist. It says right there in small print...this directory (which I have never seen) is NOT distributed to local phone company subscribers, but ONLY to the advertisers in the Yellow Pages. Weird. Anyway...I will see what teh BBB does....CM

It was the same way, I did not pay attention on the small print. When my company moved to the new location, I did fill up the form and signed the signiture.
It's worse, i paid first 298 dollars, they requested me to may another 298 dollars, then I paid and I called to cancelle the listing, They sent me the third bill of 298. Now the The Law Offices of WC French keep getting behind me.
I saw from BBB that they have lots of complaints, then my question is, why people just have compliants, but still have to pay them? What if we do not pay? What's going on the next?

I did the same thing. See. on the card it says, "Please make corrections". If you do some searches you'll don't have to pay them. Not one person has had a true collection letter of had one bad mark on their credit. Don't pay, don't pay, don't pay!!!
It's the same scam as magazine companies use. It's a business model built on numbers. They know just a little pressure...and there's a percentage that will pay.
