I first was contacted by this company with regards to their Alberta Arab Directory. They promised 25, 000 delivered magazines with our company ad in it. They said they would hold a spot for our company in the next issue of their magazine which is to be "published" by 2010.
I was given the right to cancel by November 2009 if I no longer wanted the ad spot. I found out awhile after we had talked that they were also behind the CSI News Magazine that had the same sales proposition.
It was then that I canceled or tried to cancel the ad spot. I was very strongly told that it was too bad because I had agreed, and due to printing and publishing constraints I would have to have the ad posted and pay for it anyway.
This was something that I had not thought would be a problem since I sent a cancellation fax at the beginning of July! I am still in the midst of fighting this company, which I have not paid, or will pay. They continue to phone a fax me telling me I have no choice but to pay for their ads in their magazines.
They contact me a number of times a week. They are also known by other magazine names, a few of which are in the title.
Do not even listen to these people, just hang up the phone. They will harass you until you are so frustrated and scared that you will not no which route to take. All for ads that you do not want, or have not ordered.
