Type of a scam Debt Collections

On July 18th, my company was contacted via telephone as means to advertise a free "Safety Newsletter" provided by Progressive Business Publications. Why not, right? The safer the better. However, what they failed to mention was that after 60 days, they would start billing us. We began receiving invoices for the newsletter, and had no recollection of signing up for something that we had to "pay for". The invoice was for $299 altogether (for a full years worth of the "subscription", but we only received 6 months of the news letter in the first place). This is a complete scam. After being contacted several times from International Credit Recovery demanding payment, we looked into the company more, and found out we are not the only company this has happened to. Along with that, they said they could "cut us a deal" and dropped the $299 down to $130.Stay away from Progressive Business Solutions.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

This company repeatedly calls our place of business says we owe a debt, when I asked what debt, send an invoice, a person named Lindsey started being rude and belligerent, and had no substantial paperwork, or any type of invoice, or proof of email contact with us for the debt we supposedly owed.

This is fraud and used stolen personal information to validate their fraudulent claims.

I have called back Lindsey and told her we will be contacting the FTC.

She then hung up.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I received a call from someone who claims to be with a collections agency. She said that I need to pay for a subscription. When I asked what subscription, she said “it’s just an HR subscription that you requested.”

Since Friday, she has called me 6 times requesting payment. When I say that I never received anything related to the subscription, she gets agitated and continues to say that I owe them money.

I was contacted via phone call by a woman who claimed to be calling on behalf of International Credit Recovery. She stated that I had an outstanding balance that is pending collection, and claimed that it may have been an oversight on my part. With no knowledge of what she was referring to, I inquired where this debt came from. She stated that it was from *** Business Publications and that I had signed up for the newsletter and did not cancel after the trial, so I would be charged. Furthermore, she said that several invoices had been sent (she provided the first line of our business address along with the month/day of my birthdate). When I explained that I did not receive any invoices nor notification of this debt previously, she brushed it off. When I asked if I could reach out to the company themselves to confirm, she stated that I would not be able to, as ICR will be the main point of contact. Finally, I asked if I could receive documentation regarding the debt owed, she denied that as well. Today, I found that this story has been replicated by several other individuals and that this company has outed as a scam.

International Credit Recovery Stated I owed $295.00..They said I gave confirmation by my birthday which I would never do. They also stated that they had me on recording. When I asked for information for my attorney I was told I could not have it. They called my office multiple times a day and were very harassing and agressive. When I asked for the copy of my voice on recording I was told there was no recording.

Caller claimed collections for a free subscription from Progressive Business Publications. Caller claimed the date of birth confirmed the subscription also claimed to confirm receipt of said subscription. The school has not received any subscription from the above company. Caller is aggressive over the telephone and claims to only accept check or credit card ASAP.

This is a NYC Public School and not said subscription has been received by the school.

Type of a scam Fake Invoice/Supplier Bill

Why hasn't this company been put out of business? Any other debt collection company would have been shut down by now. Christina Heidrich keeps calling and stating we owe $295.00 for a subscription from Progressive Publications. We never ordered the publication and are NOT receiving it. When asked for proof that the subscription was ordered she told me one of our employees gave their date of birth. Lies, lies, lies. And how does a date of birth prove anything?

Type of a scam Debt Collections

I'm a receptionist at a corporation. I started getting bills from Progressive Business Publications over the summer, and calls from International Credit Recovery started in November. The bills and calls are for an accounting newsletter that a colleague never received and actually even went so far as to formally cancel months ago (when he got nothing). Even though my colleague is in accounts payable and wanted the newsletter for himself, for professional reasons, ICR callers ask for the CEO and the CFO both by title and name! ICR is now targeting the company itself, which is why I am contacting the BBB. The information I'm providing is about my coworker, but ICR is targeting a range of people at this point.

Type of a scam Debt Collections

We received a call that our account was going into collections for a safety publication, I asked them to fax me the invoice. They sent the invoice and I spoke with the person who apparently authorized this and he said it was communicated to him that we would receive the publication for free for a period of time if we liked it we could order it (trial for 60 days, I believe), never did the company state that we would be charged for this after a certain point in time if we didn't cancel the subscription. Now this company has been calling our business not stop, even calling the operator and tying up all the lines that come in.

On July 11, 2016 I received a telephone call from KATY from ICR, calling from telephone number 607-748-4686, in regards to an order we agreed to from Progressive Business Publications. She informed me that our company has been sent to collections due to non payment for a publication order. Our business has never ordered any publications from Progressive Business Publications. KATY said She had an email from one of our employees agreeing to the publication order and contract. She told me that I needed to pay this bill today over the phone or I would regret the consequences by not paying. I told KATY this seemed like a Scam and I was not authorized to pay them anything without proof that we received this product. Katy told me that she "did not care about the ScamPulse.com or the complaints that are all over the internet". I disconnected the call at this point.

Now, seeking advice or help with this matter, I have seen over 450 complaints against this company. Progressive Business Publications and this company has some type of ties together because EVERY SINGLE one of the complaints against International Credit Recovery the complaint has Progressive Business Publications.
