Scam Description

Received an invoice from them via fax the first year I started working here and I thought it was real. It was for $499.99 for a year of online listing. I sent them a payment. But then I received another bill just like it 6 months later saying we owed $499.99 and they said that was for my second year. I went ahead and paid for it. Then they called me 3 months later saying we have to pay the final invoice. I told them we’ve already paid two invoices for $499.99 each. They said they’d look into it and call me back but never did. They called a month later saying the exact same thing and again never called back. 6 months later they called asking me to renew and I told them no, we’re canceling, do not renew. Then 3 months later they call again saying I owed the final invoice of $499.99, I told them I paid everything a year ago and they said they’d look into it and never called back. They called again 4 months later saying our 2-year listing was about to expire and we owed $499.99. I told them no we don’t owe anything and stop calling us.
