BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.

Customer Review Experience Value

Additional Notes

Complaint: Unsolicited email sent to my address. I did not sign up for them. I received digital promotional material in the form of email that was unsolicited. I have never before had contact with this company. I did not register my email nor have I ever spoken to any representative and supplied that information.

Desired Settlement: Stop adding emails to your list from people who did not subscribe.

Business Response: Initial Business Response /* (1000, 5, 2014/07/22) */ Our intention was not to spam our customers and we do not buy mailing lists. Our records show he had an account with a company that we have acquired. We were only reaching out to all of their accounts to introduce our company. Please let us know what else we can do to rectify this complaint. Initial Consumer Rebuttal /* (3000, 7, 2014/07/23) */ (The consumer indicated he/she DID NOT accept the response from the business.) Which company did you acquire? Anyone could use that excuse. And if indeed another company had my email, it doesn't mean I want to be contacted by you. If I gave my email to someone, I only want them to have it. Essentially, you paid for access to my email. Unless you're acting as the company I supposedly gave my email to, I don't want to hear from you. Same as buying an email list.

Customer Review(s)

The customer review(s) below are un-filtered. These positive and negative reviews are not used in the calculation of the BBB Rating.

BBB cannot guarantee the accuracy of any customer review and is not responsible for the content of any customer review. Public comments are not customer reviews.
