Calls and asks for my boss by name. Wil not leave a message or voicemail. After reading posts on another site, I think this may be a telemarketer for publications, possibly Progressive Business Publications.

Do not get involved in a conversation with anyone from Progressive Business Publications. This is a scam aimed at businesses. You will be billed a minimum of $290.00 for a one page article that is virtually worthless just by talking to them. It took many threats by phone and mail to stop them from contacting our employees the first time and it appears that they are at it again.

Keeps calling, and when I answer no one speaks. I have tried to call back to be removed from calling list but no one answers and mailbox is full. The numerous phone calls are annoying and frustrating.

Very aggressive when asking for me. Now that I know it's a telemarketer, I'm glad I didn't take the call.

Rude and annoying. Has been calling every week for the last month asking for the owner by first name and hanging up each time she is informed the owner is not available.

Calls almost every morning at 6am, if I answer they hang up. I am trying to invent a technology that you can reach through your phone and slap the person on the other end.

Progressive Business Publications. They call relentlessly. Their billing practices are an abomination. There is no way to cancel subscriptions and avoid their nasty collectors. Look up "Progressive Business Publications Scam" and you'll see nearly 100,000 entries. The complaints list is a mile long. Steer clear!

These are SCAM ARTISTS. Trying to set people up for a free newsletter, that's not free. 4-page piece of s$&@ that my 10-yr old nephew could have come up with arrives in the mail, and then they start sending you invoices for ridiculous amounts for it. When you call to cancel, they pretend that they never received the request. Then they forward your account to this rip-off collection agency ICR (International Credit Recovery) for payment. I know, because they almost got my company caught in their scam. One of the other receptionists gave them our info.,but I googled them & cancelled that "free subscription" before anything ever came in the mail.

If you fall victim to these cons, CANCEL immediately by emailing customer_service@pbp.com and SAVE COPIES.
