Beware of Southland publishing, a small local Yellow Pages and Bruce Phillips in Orange County located in the cities of Mission Viejo/Lake Forest, Ladera Ranch, Laguna Niguel and Aliso Viejo. It??s my opinion the owner, ??BRUCE PHILLIPS? is a crook, con and defrauded myself by offering to advertise my company for a TOTAL OF $1200.00 a year total FOR THE MISSION VIEJO/LAKE FOREST AND LAGUNA NIGUEL/ALISO VIEJO YELLOW PAGE BOOKS. Months after I paid Bruce the $1200.00, Bruce called to say I still owed him $1200.00 more. I said ??WHAT? I paid you Bruce. Bruce said that I still owed him for one of the books. I told him that he said that the $1200.00 would the total for both books. I repeatedly asked him, ??Bruce this is the total for both books, so $50.00 a month for each book?, Bruce said yes. My wife was in and out of the area where Bruce and I were talking. When my wife came into the kitchen where Bruce and I were talking, I asked my wife if she agreed with spending $100.00 a month total for both books. My wife and I agreed. Bruce had me sign two agreements one for each book. His writing is chicken scratch so I asked him why I needed to sign two separate documents. Bruce said because there are two books. I again asked Bruce that the price would be $50.00 a book or $100.00 a month for both books. His answer was yes. Then he filed a small claims action to collect. I called Bruce and told him that he said the $1200.00 would be the total for both books, not each books, his answer was, ??THAT MAY HAVE BEEN WHAT I SAID BUT THAT??S NOT WHAT YOU SIGNED?. Please do yourself a favor and steer clear of this ??WEASLE?, weasel being my personal opinion of course. Is Bruce so hard up for money that he has to lie to his clients to get a signature? You be the judge.
PS His books are a waste of money as everyone uses the net nowadays. This is my opinion of course.
I??d rather tape a sign on a donkeys buttocks, I??d probably get more calls than from his cheesy Yellow Page Books!!!
