Still aggressive and expensive?

Didn't find your answer?

Search AccountingWEB

Just wondering if this lot are still to be avoided?

Ive had a few calls, in 2018, when they tried to say that they were linked with AAT and other prof bodies (which I discovered they were not).  

All quiet until today,  just had another call, this time no mention of prof bodies. 

No mention of fees in £xxx but vaguely commented that fees are bespoke (!) and range between £1 - £6 per search, although I didnt give them the opportunity to go further.

Ive seen the last couple of posts (linked below) from earlier in 2018, but wanted to see if anyone had anything positive to say now?

Only positive thing I have to say about them is I haven't heard from their aggressive sales team for a while.

I got stitched up by them a few years ago and cancelled after first year as were too shady for me.

Every few months the next sales member will link with me on Linkedin then call me straight away.

Told them I would sooner nail my balls to fence then deal with them ever again.

Not sure that I want that view in my brain!!

Plus so glad I declined their 'offer'.

Thanks Glenzy.

Sadly I got stung by them 2 years ago as well. Yes the search fees may be minor but you have to buy blocks of searches at a time which the cost is spread over 4 payments a year. Ended up costing me, even with their discount £180 a quarter. Which was way over priced for what they offered.

Thanks for the info SXGuy, I will avoid completely.

I hate such sales tactics and this was was smarmier than the rest!
