I am self employed and run a airport run. Service. I was approached by whole I one golf advertising company, who offered advertising. I looked at advertising and paid a deposit. I then found that they do not provide what they say, so I cancelled the agreement within the alloted time. They are now trying to chase me for the contract amount through debt collectors and threatening court action? Several reviews have said they are scammers thanks
