I received a letter in the mail that looked like a bill for a listing on the website USAChurchesOnline.com. Though it did say itwasn’t an invoice it was hidden in small print in the middle of a paragraph that said, "Due to expanded market coverage and limited time this may be your only contact. This is not an invoice, this is a solicitation you are under no obligation to buy." It looked like an invoice for $242.00 for a yearly subscription fee. There was a "stamped" notice that said, "Your listing will expire January 2020." I’m not sure how that is an advertisement (solicitation). It says nothing about the services offered it simply looks like a bill. How does that encourage anyone to buy their product except by mistakenly thinking they already have it?

I checked the website and surprisingly there was a listing there for us.

We never purchased it. It seems evident to me they are hoping a busy church volunteer will run the "bill" through on the assumption that someone else researched it and made the purchase.

I did a search on the website domain. The web hosting site, Godaddy provided the following information. The site is owned by Jackie *** *** *** *** *** ** *** *** *** *** ***  She is also listed as the Tech for the website.

I called the the number listed on the mailing and spoke with "Mary." I asked why our information was on their site since we were not costumers and she said it had been placed there as a "courtesy" but would be taken down in 90 days if we didn’t buy the listing. This has caused me to wonder if they are using the $242 they are charging their costumers very well since they seem to be able to do what they are offering for free. What more is there to do once the information is in their listing? Even if I thought they were a legitimate company and not simply a scam, I would have serious doubts about their business plan. I told Mary that her company’s business plan was deceptive and likely to be taking advantage of those organizations who are working hardest with the least resources in their communities to help those who are truly in need. Mary was polite but unconcerned. I asked her to remove our information since we didn’t request the service or give permission for it to be placed there. She said it wasn’t possible to remove it for 90 days.

Something I noticed on their site. You select a state and then a city, but selecting the state does not limit the list of cities to those in that state. The city pull down tab seems to contain all the cities they have listings for. This seems like extremely shoddy workmanship for for a sight that charges you $242 for leaving up your information that they already put on there.
