It is a never ended process”, continuing Salah.

The advert made famous in the UK by its constant reappearance every year since its first broadcast. In it, a young boy finds himself just too short for a kiss under the mistletoe. Good Old Yellow Pages to the rescue! And before the common myth begins, no the young boy is not a young Robbie Williams, though the resemblance has been pointed out many times.

Question by Awesome O: What will the big bad Yellow Pages do to me for not paying the bill?
OK, long story short I’ve been royally screwed over by the local phone companioned monopoly Yellow Pages. 6 months into this year I found out they had changed my phone number (sort of unplug) from the previous year. This cost me a sharp decrease of about 50% gross profit. I stopped paying them as I had no money! Despite several complaints, they have offerred nothing but collections companies in resurrecting. Now, I signed up for only half the advertising this year and they insisted on charging me a ridiculously high rate (about 700/month for an ad that should be less than cc only because I didn’t spend more with them). Needless to say, this ad at this rate is performing miserably. The good news is I’ve found an alternative cheaper advertising for my business. The bad news is that if I flush try to pay this hefty yellow page bill I swear I’ll be broke in a few months. So, I know they won’t let me list again, but will they chase me for the money. The charged is under my corporation soSo I’ve been told they tin’t assail my personal credit. I worry they might try to sue me. Even though I believe I have a good defense it might cost me a divide in attorney’s fees to win. TIA for any assisted!Yes, I’m a corp. The last letter I got from them said they’d mark some bad debt with D&B on my corp name. Whatever! I’d file my case which basically states that their mistakes been me a lot.About the changing the number … they signed me up for a tracking number. This is a made up totalled which only goes in your display ad and is fowarded directly to your real number. It’s supposed to help you figure out what ads are working. Well, they never sent me whatever of the tracking info to this day and the worst separating is the tracking numbers go to a changed number recording at the end of the year which sounds exactly like a disconnect. People that don’t know you will just assume you are out of biz and call the next. I’ve debated this with the phone company and others and in my opinion this is what happens. People that don’t agree don’t understand how the YP works. They advertise CONTINUITY to you when they sell you the ads. In other words you can’t change your phone numbers without losing business.

Are you a sole proprietor? Because a sole proprietorship is essentially a business being run in the name of the owner, that person is liable for any action against the company. In the eyes of the law, there is no wall of protection between the owner and the business. They are one and the like.So if you are, yes, they can come after your personal assets/credit.Add: Sorry, re-read your question and note that you’re a corporation. I’m not sure how that work vis-a-vis your personal credit.
