USDirectory.com is a scam.
US Directory says that they’ll “put you in Directory Internet Yellow Pages, Superpages, Switchboard, MSN, and Area Guides.” and “Create a Promo website”. It’s a scam. First, there is no such thing as “Directory Internet Yellow Pages” or “Area Guides”. Yes, they capitalized them in their letter to her.
I’ve been selling yellow pages to folks. In my travels, a business owner (business initials K.C. in San Francisco) showed me the service she had signed up for with US Directory. The business owner had signed up for their services about 90 days prior to my visit. I went online and checked to see if her rank on various websites had been increased. Nothing. Nada. Niet. Nuffum. The search for USDirectory’s footprint was made easier because they actually misspelled her company’s name in the letter! While it’s true that she got a listing on USDirectory.com’s website with a little heart next to her company’s name, (spelled incorrectly), there was no sign of her company anywhere else on the internet.
The Dallas, TX Better Business Bureau has an alert about USDirectory.com, saying it’s a scam
Phony Directory Callers Targeting Businesses
Watch out for this scheme against business. The BBB in Fresno reports that businesses there have been receiving calls from USdirectory.com, also known as Directory Billing LLC. The callers say they would like to verify the business’ address and phone number for the Yellow Pages. Then the business receives a notice that their service is activated as a “Preferred Merchant of Directory Billing Internet Yellow Pages,” at a cost of $49.95 a month, bill through the local phone company. The company is based in Boca Raton, FL, and the BBB in West Palm Beach reports USdirectory.com has an unsatisfactory record due to unanswered complaints and a pattern of responding slowly to complaints.
They had a 90 day money back guarantee that amazingly, they honored when she called and canceled her service.
