Sounds to me like a disgruntled employee may have put the entire customer contact file into "accounts receivable" before he left!

I didn't request a thing. Have you ever tried to deal with a credit agency? It's a very long process to have things removed. There are rules they have to abide by, it just takes time.

By disputing the validity of a negative remark to the credit bureau tBoatpix will have to prove the debt is owed, obviously they can't. Try going to the bereau's web site and find the form.

Has anyone found a resolution with this company? I'm getting calls from a collection agency now about pictures I never requested to have sent to me. I sent Boatpix an email asking for proofs only and gave them my friend's hull regi numbers... months later got $804 worth of useless pictures. I refused them and to this day still getting billed.

To stir the piss even more, Boatpix hired a helicopter flight school that is based at the same airport I fly out of. Their "Professional Photographer" was nothing more than a kid that usually hangs out at Helicopter Services using nothing better than a disposable camera to take pictures. Adding insult to this injury, my friend was going to fly the event for FREE plus any donations the boaters wanted to contribute.
