FBI is on their a*s. Trust me they are all going down. Don’t worry. It was worth the $200 to put them in jail for 20+ years.
“Jenny” the fake named s**m that thinks she is smart had her voice recorded, It will be evidence and she is going down personally too. Contact me everyone and we will make sure they stay in jail for life.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Checked the business bank account one morning, and discovered that this company had stolen our bank routing and account numbers, and written a check to themselves 411 Listings for $99. And the signature said: "by 411 Listings as authorized signer for (my company name)"

I think they selected $99 as an amount to start the fraud bank draft because they figured business would not notice that small amount being missing. These people are despicable.

Logged into my business account and saw a fraudulent electronic check #161 made out to 411 listings for $99. Now mind you my check #’s are in the 2,000+ so how did the bank not catch this. Bigger question is how did this company get all of our business account numbers & info. I will definitely be contacting my back as well as the authorities. 411 listings needs to be stopped and prosecuted to the full extent for illegally hacking into people’s accounts and their businesses accounts.

This company just withdrew $99 from our business account having never contacted us with a fraudulent check. I called the toll free number and left a message to call and they have not responded. I don’t know where they are located but it seems from other reviews they are still able to do this with no consequence.They do not offer any type of actual service. I hope they are caught so no other company gets stolen from.

Scammer somehow received access to my bank account and has been withdrawing $99 a month for some time. I have had zero interactions with this business and somehow they were able to write their own checks online to take the funds.

I just happened to see a charge to my account from a check for $99 THAT I DID NOT WRITE. These people PRINTED a check from an x system, with and OLD address from my business, we have not been at the location the check shows FOR OVER 2 YEARS!!

All account information correct and a made up check number. Did not sign, instead, they printed ‘by 411 listings, as authorized signatory for XXXXX (my company name) AND THE BANK PAID IT…..Now…How in *** did the get my account number?? Because i have never used them before and if I ever use an online service is with a debit or credit card that ends up changed after a while anyway.

Needless to say I made a stink with ** for not catching this. There’s no way they take money out of people’s account without verifying the authenticity of a check!!! Unreal!! We are not safe at all, and it is a banks responsibility to protect the users information AND MONEY.

From the history on your site, it looks like these people were using a Canadian address for a while.

We had fraudulent charges on our business acct in May of 2016 from Info411. We had to call Citizen Investment at 1-888-260-7774 to get it credited back to acct. We had fraudulent charges on our acct in March 2017 from 411 Listings. We had to call 1-800-370-3822 to get it credited back to our acct. We now have a fraudulent charge on our acct, again by 411 Listings. The # on the check says to call Client Support at 800-366-5903 where they do not answer. The back of the check says it was deposited to Century Holdings LLC.

They ask questions to whoever answers the phone about the address information for the business. They record when the answerer says "yes" and dub it onto the question "are you authorized to approve these listings?". I emailed them and this is the response I received back which is not what happened over the phone:


There are 4 key parts to every sales call we make. One of the very first things we say is that we are calling in regards to offer a new online listing with us. We then ask the person on the phone if they are authorized to approve a listing with us. Madison Door advised us that she was indeed authorized to approve these listings. We then advise the fees of $499.00 which cover a 6 month listing in our business directory. We ask for direction on where to send the invoice and thank the person for their order. Lastly, we advise their new listing will be started in the next day or so and to look on our website for full Terms of Service.

We have listened to the sales calls in question and have found they are indeed a good sale and all telemarketing laws have been met in accordance. If you would like to hear your calls please contact a customer service representative at 1-866-411-7178 and reference invoice #3*** or #3***. In order to close your account you would need to remit 2 pro-rated payments of $279.44 to cover the 3 months of services that both businesses have used up until this point plus applicable late fees. Please send payment within the next two weeks to close these accounts or the full invoices would be owed. You can remit payment to Your Local 411 to the address listed at the top of your invoice. Thank you for your time and attention in this matter.

They go by the name of 411 Listings. Apparently it’s for online advertisement, which my business never signed up for, but somehow they got a hold of my business checking account and they setup monthly auto payments of $99.00. The name of my business on the check they auto filled does not match my legal business LLC name, but some how the checking number matches. I tried calling them and they said that someone in my business must have signed up for this, which is not true. All my business advertisment is paid through my business credit card so I know I or my manager authorized this. They also said they would look into it and get back to me and my bank, still haven’t heard back.

We have been charged on our January checking statement by the 411 Listings company. Somehow they are able to draw on our bank account. They have charged us using our old business name and our bank authorized payment on their bank draft from our account. I have received a few calls over the past year asking that we verify our address And they ask to whom they are speaking to and their position. I think this is the same company that we turned into the attorney general of our state a few years back. Now it appears that they are back…

I own a business – 411 listings wrote a check in our business name and withdrew it from my personal checking account.

When I called he Michael Turner, stated I authorized the payment. I know not to do this because of all the warnings out there.

I caught the withdrawal because of the check number on my statement was #164 I am in the 5000’s. When I printed the check it

stated my business name and their client support phone number 800-366-5903. My bank will reverse this charge and block any other charges of this kind. How can the banks withdraw from a personal account like this.

Type of a scam Fake Check/Money Order

Our church paid two counterfeit checks that were cleared by our credit union without our approval. Payee was 411 Listings. The counterfeit checks had our name, address, routing number and account number, and a made-up check number. There was no signature but a statement in the signature field stating "by 411 Listings as authorized signatory for (our church name)" One of the checks was stamp-endorsed by Global Services Group, Acct XXXXXX2165 at bk of Texas R/T 111013325. The other one was cleared through Huntington Bank. We have never done business with 411 Listings. Each check was for the amount of $99, and were dated June 5 2017 and July 5 2017. The check numbers were 161 and 162. The check form was a pretty generic business check form, but did not match ours.

Fraudulent check deposited on our account. It was not on our checks, nor even remotely our check numbering. This fraudulent check had our name and our account number, but was made out to 411 Listings with no signature. This is no company we have ever had contact with. We did not generate this check, but it was posted to our bank for $99. We have turned this over to our bank for investigation.

An invoice marked overdue arrived by regular mail, in the amount of $776.99 requesting remittance & providing a self addressed return envelope. The scam was reported/published in Ottawa last fall but hasn’t stopped with businesses back east as we received the invoice in Feb’17.… The invoice looked exactly like the ones shown in the article.

There are a few clues to alert you: there is no way to contact the vendor: no phone, website or email. Our company name was not exactly correct. There was no individual names as a contact at our business. Searching for DirectPages411 online is how I found the Ottawa article. So as long as you’re not in the habit of automatically issuing cheques to pay bills, you can avoid being scammed by this one.
