I second the post by jimschmdt41 in regards to clear channel radio. My story is in reference to their Fresno, CA branch. Here is my story: I actually paid them for advertising in full. The company I worked for did not pay the money they owed. clear channel sued me for the company's portion because the company went under and was headquartered out of state. I am not a principal, just an employee who made the worst mistake of my life in trying to obtain new clients. They misled me into not responding to the court within 30 days. I have proof to back up all of these statements. Their lawyers said I simply had to fax a copy of my response to them and it would probably be thrown out. It was on their fax machine the following day. The truth was that I had to file it with the court. I've never been in legal trouble in my life, so I had no reason to believe I was being misled. A default of judgment was filed. Since this time, they have threatened taking my home, had the Sheriff's dept. steal $936 from my bank account (while I?m unemployed; in which their lawyers were aware of), taken my career, and basically ruined my life. What's even better is they filed judgment including the portion I had paid. A year later they credited my paid portion but after they calculated the interest owed and fees. They say I now owe them more than the entire original price for the advertising which includes what I paid being credited. New laws which take effect on 3-5-10 state that anyone employed in my line of work (which I absolutely love and have been doing for over 8 years now) must have a background check done. This involves a credit check to prove financial reliability. A default of judgment had my licensing denied meaning I no longer have a career. I'm numb....If anyone does not believe this is true, feel free to contact me and I can show proof of everything. Btw, clear channel didn't even fulfill the advertising promised. I have notarized receipts that prove this (sent to me by clear ch.!!). The wonderful ad they played for 4 mos. resulted in one phone call from someone just asking if they had gotten a good deal from a competitor. Does this sound like a fair punishment for paying your bill in full and on time? So I echo, ""DO NOT ADVERTISE WITH THIS COMPANY!?

I am a small, local business owner who made the mistake of advertising with Clear Channel Radio in Cincinnati. Unless you are a Fortune 500 company, these people do not care about your success or want you as a repeat customer. I ran a series of radio spots with them and: 1.) the phone number was wrong for the first week of the campaign, and ran that way for 3 days after I called to correct it, 2. I called 2 weeks into my campaign to change the message as guaranteed by my rep and the message was never changed despite repeated calls and appeals amde by me, 3. during the three months of the campaign, I had 3 separate sales reps and spoke with 2 (one resigned midway through) general sales managers, all of whom said they would take care of me, but didn?t. I did not get one call from the campaign, but my complaint is not about the results of the campaign. I was never promised results and realized that there were no guarantees, but I WAS promised service and a ""team"" approach to creating a campaign that would give me the best results and got nothing. I refused to pay in full for this shoddy service and Clear Channel sued me for the balance in response. I never received an apology for my experience from anyone. Once I went from ""small business"" prospect to ""small business"" customer, it was about getting as much of my money as possible and moving on. If you are a big company willing to commit to annual ads, you will be treated well. If you are a small business, they want as much money as they can squeeze from you and you will get no service. I am writting this to small business owners in Cincinnati. Do not make the same mistake as I. DO NOT ADVERTISE WITH THIS COMPANY!
