Have you guys seen this where there are invoicing people?

Check this out and customers beware this is the second customer this year that has asked me what this was.

I just filed another complaint against them with the BBB.

We have had two customers now receive this. Any idea where they are getting the client information? On the back, hidden in the fine print, it indicates that it is a solitication. We had one client pay it thinking it was from us. Luckily they were able to put a stop payment on it right away.

Forget about the BBB, they are useless. This is yet another Canadian company swindling American companies because it's almost impossible to go after a foreign company.

I heard today that the FBI is on to a bunch of Canadian companies that apply for credit (providing excellent credentials and references)to American companies. They order material and merchandise which is shipped then they don't pay. Not worth going after them because doing so in another country would cost almost as much as the material or merchandise. The FBI calls their investigation Operation CANSCAM.

So forget the BBB, report them to the FBI.

Nice to know that you're placing Canada in the same league as 3rd world countries, Hal.

You trying to tell that there aren't any scam personnel or scam companies in the US? Must be a great place to live....

Try hard not to fall off that high pedestal!

FYI, the R.C.M.P. work very closely with US authorities on anything like this.

Didn't mean to offend Dave. Just stating the facts. No country is free of dirtbags.

The thing is, Hal, most of the "telemarketing" scams and Call Centers around here were actually US companies setting up shop exactly for the reason you stated; skipping out in the middle of the night to avoid the legal system from either side of the border.

Believe it not, we Canadians get scammed from US and other country's companies as well.

With modern computers and telecommunications it could be anyone, anywhere, anytime. I have to keep a close eye on my 88 year old mother and her internet/computer activity.
