Pupil introduction services

A pushy sales lady phoned me the other day from an internet instructor introduction service (I wont name them on here) asking if i'd like to advertise on their site as they're 'getting lots of enquiries from my area'.

I told the lady that i'm not teaching any more (as gave up the pink) and that i'm concentrating on my part 3 next week and hopefully the school I go with once qualified will give me some work.

She didn't seem to grasp the point that im not teaching, that didnt matter give us a £250 sign up fee now, reduced to £225 then as a special offer, and then £30 a month or so as they've had 750 enquiries from my area in the last month.....

She was quite offended when I said that i'd never heard of the company, apparently I should have seen their TV adverts recently, and that I really shouldnt go with the school I may well go with as they're very expensive.

Cheek of her!

Re: Pupil introduction services

I signed my phone numbers and address up with telephone preference services.  It stops alot of nuisance calls - not quite all of them, but it has cut them down drastically.  I was getting them almost daily.  The other thing I do, is if they don't withhold their number, I save it in my phone as 'don't answer'.  That is a useful tool too.

Re: Pupil introduction services

We had the same sales pitch, they phoned me and two of my colleagues promising 80 pupils per month. Yeah right. Needed a decision quickly because they couldn't hold the offer open for long.

I gave the guy a quick decision, I cut the call off, can't be more decisive then that, then he phoned one of my co-instructors. Pushy bathplugs aren't they. Ev

Re: Pupil introduction services

I don't know how they got my mobile number as I never give it out on things like forms and stuff. The thing that got me was she couldn't grasp the fact that I'm not teaching at the moment and if the worse comes to the worse I may never do again! It was 'give us £225 now anyway and you'll be ready for when you pass'. I'm wondering if they got my number from my original training provider, sounds like the sort of thing they'd do, give us the money now and hope for the best.

Re: Pupil introduction services

I had these folks ring me up to. They called my home number which is ex-directory.

I told em I wasn't interested because other companies had made similar claims to get me leads with my other business (I'm a wedding photographer) and that those promises had come to nought. So then the sales woman becomes an expert in the wedding photography buesiness and can get me 128 enquiries per month. So i gave em short shrift and hung up. They do get very angry when you say you aint interested though.

Re: Pupil introduction services

They told me that they had about 6 other instructors in my area advertising with them which when I looked on their website later seemed to be true. The sales person just couldnt seem to grasp the fact that as im not teaching until I pass part 3 im not in a position to advertise anyway, that didn't seem to bother her.

She was so off at the end when I told her that I wasn't interested that if they rung me again in the future i'd probably turn them down anyway!

Re: Pupil introduction services

they use pushy sales techniques and get you to sign up via credit card.

There is no chance of a refund because the transaction is judged as business to business and is not covered by consumer law.

Anyone wanting to know who they are they are an internet search engine that have lots of complaints and they are called U****us. Work the rest out yourselves.

Personally I'd like to name them.

Yep thats's the firm.

I cant believe that any firm has 750 enquiries a month for one area looking for driving instructors.

These guys are getting a very bad rep in a few forums and in other areas of life as well. Please steer clear, thanks for the reminder that business to business transactions are not covered by as tight legislation on selling.

Re: Pupil introduction services

I never sign up for anything when people phone me, only when I phone them. I'd never give my credit card number or personal details over the phone to someone that could be anyone. I said to the lady if you send me some information i'd look at it and may be interested in the future but she said no she couldn't do that. That was enough for me, if they're not prepared to even send documents about their service then bye bye.

She sounded surprised when I said i'd never heard of the company before, apparently I must have seen their TV adverts.

She could have said it's only £5 to set it up, they still wouldn't have got my credit card number.

Apparently as part of the fee they design a 2 page website for you.

Re: Pupil introduction services

Ufindus have to be the worst persistant callers trying to get your money.

When you look at the website, alot of instructors have given up the money thou. I just wonder how many enquries they actually receive from this course.

I have to confess. I've done the same myself. I agreed a years package with CityVisitor. Admitedly this was before my website was ranking in the top 10, but even prior to this there were no enquiries from this source and very few hits.

I was even told over the phone I'd get a new logo designed, but later found out this would cost £50.

Not to mention the problems with Yell.com and Thomson. Its just not worth it.

I cannot monitor my landline calls but I never pick up out of town numbers or withheld callers, just for an easy life. Like Karen I also put a message for ones I do not want to speak to.

They get a polite. " I'm not interested, thank you". Then if they do not here it the first time I'll say it again. If they have not got the message at this point the phone is just put down and switched off.

Its sad, but if someone wants to call and cannot understand the words NO THANKS, you are left with little choice.

Re: Pupil introduction services

I actually found a blog site about ufindus.com, all it had on it was complaints of lots of clients they had shafted, once you sign up for the web site they automatically charge
for the service from your credit card details no e-mails, phone calls, or renewal notice is sent, in their terms and conditions it states you have to contact them in writing 60 days before your renewal is due or you will be charged. Two thing springs to mind money spinner, shaft the customer.

Oh, I'd give it a couple of weeks. I've had three calls from this crowd in the last couple of months, each time I've told them I'm not interested and to stop calling. Each time I was told that "a note would be put on the record". Last time they claimed to be calling on behalf of the DIA - yeah right!!!!

I save the number in my phone as 'don't answer' then when it comes up I don't answer, and they stop phoning.  Also sign up with Preferential Telephone Services: and then report them if they keep phoning you: they'll deal with it for you. Simple answer every time is if you want advertising, you will look for it, not wait for someone to phone up offering it.

Re: Pupil introduction services

Anyone wanting to know who they are they are an internet search engine that have lots of complaints and they are called U****us. Work the rest out yourselves.

Personally I'd like to name them.

Oh I'll name them... Ufindus... and i have heard nothing good about them thus far.  Has anyone here had any good experiences with them. I'm interested in this on a personal level also.

They are in my phone under 'don't answer' lol

They are most annoying: could amost set the clock by the time they phone too.  Got passed getting sucked in by this lot.

Re: Pupil introduction services

Funny I told them in a roundabout (scuze the pun) way to Fcuk off after the 12th or 13th call 9 of which were when I was on lessons. So I am probably now listed under don't contact at UF....DUS. As Katherine Tate so eloquently says ''Am I bovverred,'' well actually not at all now, so it must have worked. lol Ev

Re: Pupil introduction services

you're all looking at this from the wrong angle, me and a friend of mine are currently competing to get the longest nuisance caller. I currently am in the lead with 9mins 36sec with a lovely chap from india trying to sell me a phone(well get my credit card no: at least).
waste my time indeed, i've got plenty have they!

my favourite story though was someone who had a cold caller to his door offering double glazing. a man was promptly dispatched and surveyed his property, gave the punter a full quote only for him to tell him[at the last minute] he was on the dole and was claiming housing benefit. don't know how true it is but i laughed.

p.s. they always put the phone down first
