I posted a while back, I signed up for Equifax credit alerts. I received a notice that my score dropped 27 points. There was a outstanding bill notice from Boatpix. They said I owe them $627.00.
I wish I could just send people stuff they don't order, Bill them huge amounts of money, then if they don't buy the items you hurt their credit.
I see them all the time. They fly around the Fort Lauderdale coast line in this little helicopter and when they see a boat they follow it and take pictures. Then without your authorization, they get your address from the regi numbers on your boat and send you a set of 5 8x10 and 1 16x20 photos with a bill for $750. For $750 you could rent a helicopter for an hour and have someone shoot 5 rolls of film for that price. I have never received one shot picture from them worth that kind of money! They are nothing like the pictures you get from Stu's runs!! Then it is your responsibility to either send them $750 or take the pictures to the post office and at your expense send back the pictures you never asked for certified mail and let them know your don't want them. Then they send you a reduce price offer which I again refuse. Over the past years, without exaggeration, I have received photos from them 15 times. The last time was probably a year ago. Now today I find out, they sent something to Equifax that I have an outstanding balance of $627. It lowered my credit score 27 points. I have no idea which order this was, nor do I have any proof of sending anything back (this is at least a year old).
I have my attorney trying to work it out. It's probably going to cost $1000 in attorney fees to handle it!!
