more a rant about what went wrong than an informative piece as to what the company are supposed to be. by ryanando
I'm afraid I found this a bit confusing; surely somewhere you and the representative must have agreed to something in order for them to send you an invoice? For instance, what exactly did they offer to provide you with, and was there a cooling-off period? I wouldn't be able to make a decision about whether to use Thomson Local just based on this review. by KateHurst

Long wait and big disappointment
Review of Thomson Local Directory by DavidRuddle1976

Advantages: Customer service was polite and at least I am sure to be getting part of my money back
Disadvantages: Such a long wait to be told it was not going to happen and not offering a FULL refund

This review is about the "business deals" I signed up for a half price Android Tablet. Told it could take update 25 days. Not a major problem for a half price item. When I e-mailed about why I had not seen or heard anything in what was closer to 45 days f ... Read review

ybd@thomsonlocal.com BEWARE SPECIAL DEALS
Review of Thomson Local Directory by Teleport123

Advantages: Very quick and efficient and helpful in taking your money.
Disadvantages: You will not be recompensed for poor service or non-delivery of goods

My recommendation is BEWARE of this company and the deals they offer. I bought and paid them for a 32 gb memory stick from a partner business (which has hundreds of bad reviews in different places on the net). I later found that what they had advertised ... Read review

To me, you need to actually talk a bit more about the actual directory as opposed an invoice for advertising! In other words, what information is in it? Where do they cover, which areas? Etc. by dynamicnurse

I go red not yellow, when I can't find the number!
Review of Yellow Pages by dynamicnurse

Advantages: Gives you local business telephone numbers.
Disadvantages: Not all numbers are listed.

The Yellow Pages in this country are about as British as red telephone boxes; traffic jams on Bank Holidays, and queuing at the Post Office just to buy one second class stamp to send a Christmas card to the next street. OK so I may be going over the top a ... Read review

Handy to keep to hand. Maureen by MAFARRIMOND
Welcome to Ciao, sorry for the Off Topic but this is about the online service and not the directory/offline service as per the category. As there doesn't seem to be a category for the online side you can suggest the product to Ciao and then ask them to move it to the new category. If you need any help, just shout! :-) by HotBabes
