Complaints to the BBB are received from businesses in Michigan, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin and allege they paid between $150-250.00 in advance, in full for business advertisements on caricature maps they never received.
The BBB made repeated attempts to contact the owner, Edward Zapencki, by mail and phone after an investigation discovered that Zapencki was still operating his business. Per review by a BBB Investigator, the address for Fun Maps listed on the contracts is 1813 Roe Ave., Racine, WI 53404. However, all complaints sent to that address went unanswered.
On November 18, 2013 a BBB Investigator reached Mr. Zapencki by telephone. In that conversation, Mr. Zapencki stated "the money he collected for fun maps is gone and that his company is currently out of businesss." Mr. Zapencki stated he had "every intent to deliver (the maps) but couldn't afford the total cost of the printing and could not obtain a loan."
