Our school received and invoice for $460 for advertising in the Youth and Community News (Apex Advertising), we did not. The number provided on the invoice has a voicemail message saying it's a private number and to leave a message. Just received an invoice to my work email for $495 for advertising in a youth magazine which we have never used. Total scam. This is the phone number on the invoice. Company name is Apex Advertising. Work for an accounts payable company - a number of clients have received invoices from Apex Accounting saying they advertised in the Youth and Community News 2019 magazine - they did not. Invoices all for $460, Isle of Capri with this the listed phone number. Phone number is on paperwork for Awareness of Children's Safety and Youth and Community News both with different PO Boxes and Ascot Publishing is noted on the paperwork. These are scams. They all call saying you agreed to advertising in their magazine, state you gave them a password and your credit card details. Pay today and you get the discount. I have had 2 payments taken from my business bank account from these fraudsters, totalling $840, now having to change my account, they say they are community magazines and i have advertised with them when i have not, they take a legitimate ad from another publication and pass it off as an approved advert from you
These people are criminals
Just received an invoice to my work email for $460 for advertising in a youth magazine which we have never used. Total scam. This is the phone number on the invoice. Company name is Apex Advertising. Caller: Someone from Children's Safety, Youth and Community News
After initially agreeing to a one off advertisement in the Children's Youth & Community News (Apex Advertising) our business has since been charged for advertising we've not agreed to & haven't received any invoice for. Their phone diverts to voice mail & the address is a post box number on the Isle of Capri, Gold Coast, avoid!
