Original Complaint against American Advertising Concepts published at Scamity.com on 04-Dec-14 says, verbatim –

In May of 2014 our restaurant was contacted by Jason Ely, Apartment Sepcialist, about advertising on a refridgerator magnet for a local apartment complex. I am always skeptical of solicitation calls from out-of-state for obvious reasons. And we get more than 10 ecery day! Mr. Ely gave me his spiel claiming that the apartment complex pointed him in our direction. I told him I would call him back with our decision so that I could confirm what I had been told. | I called the apartment complex and the property manager confirmed that Mr. Ely did contact them about the magnets and they referred him to us. In hindsight, If we had done a bit more research I would not be writing this report. One look at their pitiful website would have been all I needed to see to pass on the “opportunity.” If they are so ineffective at marketing their own company, we would never trust them to advertise ours. But, unfortunately, we proceeded with the magnet ads, for which we were charged $460 for the ad and an additional $10 for the sample we were to receive(!?) and “shipping.” | We were told the apartment complex would receive the magnets in September and we would receive our sample at the same time. When we did not receive our sample by October, I called the apartment complex and was informed that they had not yet received the magnets or have they been contacted again since the initial call in May. I sent Mr. Ely and email to which he did not respond. 7 months removed from my first conversation with Mr. Ely, and after several emails and phone calls, no response, no magnets and no refund. Stay away from this company. I am sure ripping off businesses from coast to coast is their standard operating procedure. I plan to take further action against Amerian Advertising Concepts and will update this report with future developments. |
