Type of a scam Yellow Pages/Directories

These scammers called a cell number that has never been listed with a business.

They wanted me to call them back to remove my listing if my business was not operating during Covid.

They got the business wrong at first. Called it a medical practice. Corrected it to dental. I am a dentist but do not own the business. I did not call them back. Total scam!

Stewart Ruben called and said that I owed him money for Yellow Pages. Josh Goldberg called me today and said the same thing, but the voices sounded very familiar. I paid Stewart over the phone $1,200.00 thinking that I really owed them.

Date of call June 26th and also left message week of June 18th while I was on vacation and out of office. Caller states his name is Ivan Polak from collections department with Yellow Pages and if they don’t hear from us by 5pm EST on June 29th they will file an R9 against our company credit with the credit bureau and forward to their attorneys who will then file a validation of debt with the courts and we can expect a subpoena in 10 to 15 days. (saved message on machine) We are a church, and this happened to us before and we fell for it, then shortly after they called again trying to get more from us. After some investigation upon the second try in such a short period I realized it is a scam. When they called again I told them I had reported them, which I did) and haven’t heard from them again until now. He states we owe like three years in the amount of $3000.00+ ( I accidentally erased the first call with the exact amount). Please advise how to handle future calls. Thank you.

I got a fax in when I first started working for my company and it stated to "update information this is not a bill", so I changed what needed to be changed on the invoice and faxed it back. Then, not even a day later I get another invoice with the bill and I called the company and told them I do not have any apparent authority with my work place and I just started and they told me "that sucks and you will have to pay this bill you signed a contract for business to business." all I did was make the changes for our information that they asked me to when verifying info for our company. I am an hourly employee with no stock in this business and have no right to ok charges of any kind. The owner of the business is very upset and told me that I have to pay this and I don’t have $3,000 to pay this. Anyone could have walked by the fax machine and signed it, maybe it should have only been addressed to the owner. The invoice is for a directory and they are using the name Open Business Solutions but also the Yellow Pages (YP) name and the company billing us is located in Germany!

For over year trying to cancel a supposed verbal contract with yellow pages. I have several emails demanding cancellation of this useless advertising from yellow pages and they refused to cancel . They have a recording of me saying yes to listen to the sales rep speak about the advertising. I never received anything by mail or email. Never signed anything, no written contract exists and yet they insist that I now pay them 985 bucks for useless advertising. I have been trying to cancel this billing since Oct 2016. *** *** *** *** *** *** ***  They will not get any money from me. They are disgusting. Now a collection company is hounding me. I will not pay them and *** * *** *** *** *** *** ** *** ***. Don’t use yellow pages. Thousands of business owners have been scammed by this outfit

This company claims that we owe them money for advertising. They some how maybe using cut and pace are using our signatures to put on their contracts. We said we wanted nothing to do with them they keep calling, faxing and sending items in the mail claiming we owe them. We finally said ok we will send a check they said great but we asked them for a address with in the United Stated they could not provide that they said . So we told them we would not pay they then said they would send our case to their legal team and that they would no longer contact us. They keep calling keep faxing keep everything. They are a total scam the woman you can barely understand. Please don’t pay these scammers anything !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Type of a scam Yellow Pages/Directories

Last week we began receiving calls that we owed $985.98 for some online advertising with the Yellow Pages. He originally asked for the former owner and then switched to the current owner. We asked that they email us documentation which they were unable to do. The calls were consistent and on the aggressive side. A "supervisor" got involved which the owner talked to. The story kept changing, fast talking and still can offer any form of documentation we signed up for this service or and invoice. I checked with Dex and Directory Plus, who we advertise with and they have no record of this service. I called the Yellow Pages and they could not find any record of us advertising with them. The scammers sent an email stating that they may be able to get the debt down to $450. I responded to the email stating what I have discovered on my research and that I believe this to be a scam and it will be reported. Haven’t heard anything today from them.

I was called on my home landline by this number. Someone wanted to "confirm" we cancelled a yellow pages subscription. I said I didn’t think we ever had one unless my husband knew of one. He asked me to confirm my husbands name and then said so you never had a subscription? I said I don’t think so and he said thanks and hung up. I looked it up and it’s a billing scheme.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Received a fax that looked exactly like previous faxes received over the years from the legit Yellow Pages, to confirm my address.

Next thing I know I am getting faxed bills for advertising my lusting online. This has gone on for 3 years and each invoice faxed to me lists a larger amount (they added "collection charges") that is due. Now it’s about $1500.00.

Recently an attorney called me to collect. First time I’ve gotten a phone call. He gave his name and the firm he works with. Both are phony and not listed with the state of Washington which is where he said his firm is located when I returned the call. I returned the call because the message left was vague and I wasn’t sure what it was about.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

Someone keeps calling our company claiming to be "with the collections department for Yellow Pages" saying it’s very important to contact him back as soon as we receive his message. We have received several threatening calls over the past few months from various people claiming to be from the Yellow Pages, yet we never had an account with the Yellow Pages. We have received no invoices, and no one has been able to show us any evidence of this supposed debt they would like to collect over the phone.

In April, someone also called with the same claims. I have included a link to the most recent voicemail we received. Please help!!

Indicates Yellow Pages at the top with the address of: Bulgaria, Varna, Vinitsa 9022, PO Box 4. Indicates Outsourced Billing Department. Says the year’s subscription is $496.95 and that it is overdue and going to impact your credit rating. Company name also indicated as: Debt Collectors, Inc.

Type of a scam Yellow Pages/Directories

I’m getting fake invoices faxed to me from a bogus Yellow Pages online directory demanding $419 for services I never agreed to. They say they faxed my signature and emailed back a form I supposedly filled out for the service – but I don’t recall ever contacting them! That they have my signature is most disturbing! The address on the invoice is 1145 Innisfill Beach Dr. When you google this, it shows a Shoppers Drug Mart in Innisfill ON. So my guess is that the address is a mailbox inside the Shoppers Drug Mart.

YP scammers are making harassing phones calls to our business attempting to recover payment for services we did not request or agree to. The scammers call us from a number with a voicemail in French, but leave an alternate number to contact them back at. The caller id identifies the caller as M. Blackett # 514-731-4911. The scammer identifies himself as Ian Goldberg @ #800-906-6499 Ext.1. I have one voicemail saved with this information.

I have report this scam before, but I continue to receive harassing phone calls. We are ignoring them to the best of our ability.

I received an email to my company email account titled "Yellow Pages Invoice Overdue", regarding a billing reminder with attached invoice. The invoice lists the Yellow Pages address as 9526 Argyle Forest Blvd Ste B2, Jacksonville, FL, 32222. It is a bill for what they refer to as "Premium Business Package" in the amount of $699.99. I have never contacted Yellow Pages for any services whatsoever, especially from my company email address, so I’m sure this is not an invoice for any transaction that has actually occurred.

This is an email that I received and it doesn’t have anything to do the the real YP advertising and I don’t advertise with any other YP so I think they are trying to get businesses to think they are even when you click on the link they put in the email it makes you think they are going to end your Real YP advertising. Don;t know but I think people should be warned. This is a copy of the email I received.

ScamPulse.com received information forwarded by a business about a solicitation from Yellow Pages ***. The flyer states to return the form immediately to be included in the online business directory. It also states "this is not a bill". However, if you read the fine print, it shows you will be billed a fee of $396. The fine print also says this is strictly an on-line directory. The business first thought it was free listing, and then read the fine print. Solicitation from *** *** ***; *** *** *** ***. (located in Florida)
