Just got a call from Lori Appleton from ICR in Vestal NY as well. Claims we owe for these publications from Progressive Business Solutions and she was very proud to know my birthday. Guess I filled out a survey or something that they got their hands on. Look at the legit ICR website in California and get a chuckle out to the BOG BOX with the disclaimer "WE ARE IN NO WAY ASSOCIATED WITH ICR IN NEW YORK" lol. What a scam!! If I hear from her again I will take the time to complain to the postmaster and the AG of New York as well as the BBB of Pensylvania and New York.
Lindsay called me from there and said that I was deliquent on a subscription that I didn't order earlier this year. What a joke.
The same thing happened to my nonprofit charity for disabled children. "Sam" called me several times over the past few days from phone number 607-748-4686, claiming that I had subscribed to "Foundation & Corporate Funding Advantage," a publication I have never received or heard about. She claimed I had authorized them to send me a free copy and agreed to pay for a subscription unless I sent it back and cancelled. "Sam" also threatened to turn our account over to collections and notify the credit companies. When I told her I had not ordered it, she gave my birthdate as proof. I told her that just because she found my birthdate somewhere was not proof (I know for a fact that I do not give out my birthdate or social security number to anyone). She became huffy and threatening, so I hung up on her. We will report this company to the Texas Attorney General and to the Better Business Bureau.
Same for me today and the same person- Kelly. She wanted my credit card number to get us immediately out of account delinquency and if I didn't give to her, she would be contacting my CEO. I asked her to cc me on the letter she sent to my CEO to tell him that I was forcing our account into collections for $299. Wow, I'm in Delaware. $300? Really? I fully recognize she wants my card number to get a lot more than $300, but if you are going to threaten a large organization, you might want to at a minimum have "000" after what ever number she gives. Maybe she should do a little research on the organizations she is calling. She became agressive when I thanked her for the phone call and that no, I would not be providing her my credit card number or checking account + routing number. I also told her it seemed like she was having a bad day and maybe she should try back when she was emotionally prepared to have the conversation. Good entertainment to start the day. This being said, I could see that a phone call like this could be intimidating for someone in a smaller organization. Key question- would you share the name of the company and subscription of the product? (She freaked when I asked her this question)
Same exact thing happened to me, I have seen no issues but did return an email and invoice both as cancel. Now this lady named Amanda keeps calling here and she is indignant and will leave no information with my assistant. Until she does, I have no intention of returning or taking any of her calls.
This is all still happening. Got a series of calls from Laurie Appleton, threats, all the same. the "Manager" called to be good cop and offered the same $100 get you off the hook con...of course we don't have a credit card so it would have been on my personal card. No way. The catch they've seemed to add is that they told me it would go on my *personal* credit report...that I was personally responsible for this bill.I wish I'd googled all this stuff before I talked to them on the phone. Our lawyer told me to forward any further correspondence to her and she would send a letter.Horrible. Nearly ruined my day. Seeing that I was not alone is a huge relief though I'm sorry these rotten people exist. How they sleep at night preying on tiny nonprofits trying to squeeze them for $100 is beyond me.
I got the same call everyone else did - from Chris Bennett, saying my company owed $299 for a "verbal contract" I allegedly signed, in order to receive a year's subscription to the "Internet & Marketing Report" by merely giving my birthday - that the first two months were free and that bills would begin in month three if I didn't call first to cancel. He seemed extremely genuine and was happy to get me set up on the Do Not Call list going forward... wow, there's some seriously shady business happening out there, against those of us trying to earn an honest living. Very glad I looked into this online before shelling out my company's CC#!!!
I received several invoices and never ordered the newsletter. The invoice did not have a phone number as I recall. I threw it in the trash. Today I received a call from International Recovery (Kathy Rema). She threatened me to put my company collection status and then began arguing with me about whether I gave someone my birth date as proof of the order. I finally had to hang up on her after she became impertinent. Total scam!!!!
After receiving a call today from International Credit Recovery, Progressive Business Publications started searching on the net and found dozen of sites like this reporting this scamming. What is unbelievable is not what they're doing but for how long and still they are in "business". Fortunately I was not intimitated and I did not provide any additional information to keep harrasing me or my company. I am not going to pay anything I did not ask and even did not receive.
I received a call yesterday from “Lindsey” about an invoice that had not been paid by our company. When I explained what the company acronym stood for there suddenly was an issue with her system. She was going to have to call back when it came back up. She was sorry for the inconvenience. Since she did not call back I looked up the number she called from and have learned a lot about “Lindsey” and her company. I suppose the company acronym did not adequately explain what we do. We are a legal firm with offices in five states. Guess that scared her off.
