Oh my lord! These clowns called me today. Same publication scam. I talked to the infamous"Katie Dotman". I lost it with "Katie". She insisted on payment asap. I demanded an invoice be emailed to me and she wouldn't do it. She got very defensive when I lost it. I told her I never signed a damn thing and never received an email. Just some idiot telemarker that I should have hung up on immediatley a few months ago. She kept saying "just use your company credit card". Katie, how did you know I was born yesrterday? She kept threatening me that this would go against my company's credit rating. When I told her I was the local account executive for this $15 BB company and the address she had on file is my home address as I work from home she said "Oh". I told her I'd call her back. My wife works at a law firm and can really pile it on so I may have her call tomorrow. SHUT THESE CROOKS DOWN NOW!!!!!!
Wow, hard to believe these people are still alive and kicking. We just received the exact scam, word for word, based on the comments I've read here dating back to 2007. Of course, I'm not going to pay *anything* until I see confirmation of an order w/authorization. That is when the (at first) congenial female collection agent turned ugly. She ended up (most likely in frustration) stating that the phone call was recorded (hey, you can't record anything in MA unless the person is told first that s/he is being recorded) and threatened me with slandering the good name of a 54-year old reputable business. Good riddance, I say.
My only question, is where is the DOJ? They are too busy going after the US citizen trying to gamble on an internet site w/in the confines of their private residence or some other such thing, I guess.
These People Are Idiots – Happy to see I'm not the only one out there that feels this way. Shut this place down and lock these ppl away. If anyone puts together a lawsuit for harrassment please contact me and I will jump on board...GIVE THESE FOOLS NOTHING!
ICR and Progressive – If there was a zero star rating, that's what I'd select. Got a call from a "Lindsey". I asked her to email me the sequence of events and she said she would not do that. Well, of course she wouldn't. That's what all the online article said would happen. I asked for the audio file of the conversation she said took place with the verbal ok. Of course, those are destroyed after 90 days, and, of course, the ok happened more than 90 days prior. Thanks to everyone's posts here and elsewhere. It's a shame these people get away with it!
For Real Tho..... – last week I had Amanda Sprague from ICR to call me ab a $2.99 bill that just had to be an oversite. It was for a business publication I had received and she was giving me the opportunity to clear things up, waiving her processing fee and all that. She wanted a Credit card or Debit payment over the phone. So I told her I didnt have my card but I could overnight a Money order. Well when I found that it was going to be $37 to overnight it, I said regular mail it is. The next day she was calling several times ab a mistake. The bill was $299.00. Heck No I'm not paying it. I dont have a product, why would I pay it? 2.99 for a sample pamphlet was one thing but thats all I;'m getting up off of. So I ask her for the company's contact info so I could clear this issue up with them, she tells me She was the contact person so I tell her o.k, fwd or fax me the bill and contract, she started to get UGLY with me, so I got ugly with her and told her I thought it was a scam and hung up. She then called my boss... little did she know my boss knows how to deal with her kind. so she got told off and hung up on again. So the next day her "Boss" calls to settle the matter and promises to send me the invoice via email thought she would not talk to or email my boss. I've already contacted and file a complaint with the BBB. Who else can I contact there?
ICR and Progressive – Just had a Amanda call me telling me this must have been an over site that I didnt pay $299 past due invoice. This is such a scam!!!! I asked her to send me the invoice and I would call them to clear it up and Amanda said she wasnt going to give me their info. so I could call them and bug them about it!! The nerve!!! I then got on line and found all the scamming thats going on. I was so mad I decided to call this Amanda back, she answered to my surprise...I stated what going on? she said what do you mean? I said I wasnt ignorant and seen all the fraud that was going on she said you can speak to my supervisor I said no I didnt need to because I wasnt paying the bill and that they were full of Shi* I hung up on her, needless to say I never received the fax she was supposed to send me.
I used to work there! – I am not sure how many people actually read these reviews but i do all the time! I used to work for this company(ICR) and it is a JOKE! I would love to tell you more about it so if you are intrested you can email me at danielle71680@yahoo (dot com) and I will be happy to tell you all about the scam that this company is running! Hope to hear from you!
They're still at it!! – This company is still trying the same old scam - I got a call stating I had ordered a subscription to "Progressive Business Newsletter" in May, but had not paid any of my monthly invoices. They even had my BIRTHDATE and email address as "proof"! Amazing! They wanted my credit card number TODAY - supposedly because the fiscal year was ending today and my company's credit would be hurt if I didn't pay within this year. To make a long story short, I didn't pay, but this is ridiculous! Where are the cops when you need em?
Scammer – I received a call from Kathy Rema from ICR.. same story as everyone else.. She got nasty when I would not let her speak with my boss. She said she was going to call him at home. She also threatened to ruin my personal credit. Finally she said "This will not go away!" and hung up. She called the next day and when I told her that according to the NY State Division of Corporations IRC of Vestal NY is "Inactive" and "dissolved" for not paying franchise taxes, she said that is a different company and put me on hold! Really?! How many ICRs in Vestal NY are there? And she expected me to sit on hold?! Yeah right!
Funny thing is, two days later, Progressive Business Publications called and asked for our CFO. (We are a small dental office.) I asked if this had to do with an IRC matter. No, she wanted to send him a free trial copy of CFO and Controller Alert! Seriously?! I started laughing, told her they were scammers and hung up! We all got a good giggle about that!
This company should be put out of business! – This company is a complete scam that preys upon nonprofit organizations. I wasted several hours of my time that could have been better spent on work on behalf of my organization investigating their bogus credit collection call.
With the hundreds of complaints about this company, I do not understand why the government or New York Secretary of State has not investigated.
Note: There is no zero stars option or this company would have a solid zero rating.
