Additional Complaint Information

BBB files show a pattern of complaints alleging that The Day Group LLC mails solicitations that strongly resemble invoices to businesses throughout the U.S., as well as, to foreign countries, such as Australia and Scotland.  The solicitations, which feature a London, UK return address, offer to sell The Day Group's "WORLDWIDE IT RESEARCH REPORT" for $5,000.  Envelopes in which The Day Group's solicitations are mailed are addressed to companies' Accounts Payable departments.

On October 8, 2013, BBB wrote to The Day Group LLC, advising that the format of the company's solicitation did not appear to comply with federal regulations; specifically, Title 39 of the United States Code, Section 3001, which requires that the solicitations contain the following statement in 30-point type in boldface capital letters in a color contrasting the background:

"THIS IS NOT A BILL.  THIS IS A SOLICITATION.  YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PAY THE AMOUNT STATED ABOVE UNLESS YOU ACCEPT THIS OFFER."

On November, 15, 2013, J. William Day of The Day Group LLC responded to BBB that the required statement had been added to the solicitations; however, copies of subsequent solicitations provided by recent complainants show that the mandatory disclaimer is not in the required 30-point bold type.

Businesses that receive The Day Group LLC's solicitations may wish to review information provided by the U.S. Postal Service at:
