The company, Telecom Directory, sent me a misleading contract to sign, parading as Telkom's Directory, which I was actually dealing with at the time. Thinking it was the form for my annual Trudon/Yellow pages update, I filled it in and sent it to them, only to receive an invoice 2 weeks later for an exorbitant amount of over R7000 for 24 months of advertising on their terrible website that does not adhere to the promises they made in the contract for a proper optimised online directory. The fraudulent contract clearly displays Ethekwini Telephone Directory (2018) at the top, which it clearly is not for. I emailed Lizelle Adams telling her that I had mistakenly filled it in and to please cancel the invoice and order. She said that was not possible and that I had to pay the amount. I emailed her again with the relevant consumer act entries that she was violating. She phoned me repeatedly saying the amount had to be paid or I would be handed over. I did not recive a single reply to any of the emails I sent her. I have now been 'handed over' for debt collection and await further communication from their debt collection company. I was sent no introductory email about the product or website. Nor was I sent a proof of my advert until after I had been invoiced. They state that their online directory is search engine optimised, which it is not, neither is it a letigimate or SSL secure website. This company has intentionally tried to mislead me in to purchasing from them. And now they are threatening to blacklist me if I do not pay the amount.

Email received to complete form - was under the impression it was from Telkom as the email had no letter head - tried to cancel contract and now have been handed over to so attorneys Johan van zyl which is not legit as address is not valid nor company no. Address on letterhead from Telecom is the postal address for the Reserve bank in Pretoria. ????
