We got a weird call a few months ago from some fast-talker who said he needed to verify our listing for the Yellow Pages. We use a YPPA firm to handle all our Yellow Page advertising, so we told him we were not interested. We told him repeatedly that we were not interested in his services. He asked to verify our phone number and we confirmed this was our number but repeated that we did not have any interest in his services. Two months later, our phone bill showed two months' charges from a company called American Business IT Solutions LLC, although the billing phone number was for some company called PaymentOne Corp. We have never, ever done business with either such company, but when we called Payment One, they transferred our call to American Business IT Solutions. The representative from ABITS claimed that we had accepted their telephone offer for "website hosting." We argued that we have no need for additional website hosting and have never accepted any such offer; they claimed to have the name and birthdate of an employee who authorized such charges; however, we have no employee with any such birthdate. The ABITS representative with whom we spoke said the company's phone number is 1-866-315-5925 and its address is 137 1/2 Washington Ave, Suite 271, Belleville, NJ 07109l she claimed the supervisor's direct line is 1-866-932-5001, ext 222. We urge everyone who has the misfortune of getting scammed by this company to report them to the NJ Attorney General's office and likewise file a complaint with AT&T for being so reprehensible as to allow bills for this fly-by-night outfit to be posted to AT&T invoices, since AT&T also gets paid for doing these billings!!
Caller type: Scammer
