It’s and it seems a bit dodgy to me.

I don’t know what it was like in your region but they blitzed the North West with television advertising last year (or maybe early this year). At the same time we received loads of sales calls from them explaining what a fantastic service it was, how it had generated such fantastic brand-awareness with their television advertising etc.

I’ve not seen one of their adverts for at least 6 months now and their sales calls (thankfully) seem to have dried up. A cynical person might believe that they’re targetting each TV region in turn, and hassling companies into signing up with them on the strength of their TV advertising. Once they’ve attracted their target number of mug punters in the region they could then move on to the next region.

The thing is everyone knows Yell & Thomson – but the fact that you couldn’t even spell ufindus demonstrates that they have some way to go to generate the level of brand-awareness that they would like you to believe they possess.

  4. Yes ufindus – Did also lie to me, saying going to enter my company details in a directory. Said at first calling from BT ! I spoke to my local chamber of commerce, who warn me not to deal with this company, as had 100’s of complaints regarding its cold calls – calling numbers listed on TPS stop lists etc..
