Better Business Bureau Warns: Don’t Fall Victim to Promote U’s Scheme

 

Company targets business with false promises

Better Business Bureau - BBBClarksville, TN – The Better Business Bureau (BBB) warns Middle Tennessee companies of the business practices of Promote U, also known as Made 2 Order, which is owned and operated by Robin L. Kincaid. The company is located at 1830 Donelson Parkway Dover, TN 37058 phone number 931-278-0943 – previously located at 1685 Fort Campbell Blvd # C Clarksville, TN 37042.

BBB has received numerous complaints from businesses located in Clarksville, Joelton and Madison TN alleging Promote U approached businesses with offers to make marketing products, such as signs, hats, hoodies, etc. with promises that the products would be ready in one to two weeks; however, Promote U failed to deliver the products as promised and no refunds were given.

One business stated, “Our co. was misled by a con. This man (Robin Kincaid) offered a discount to us for the payment in full and did not deliver our ordered goods as they were promised. “

Another business said, “”Promote U” solicited his services to our business by walking into our office. We in fact needed the services he could offer for printing. He quoted us $250.00. We agreed to quoted price. When the marketing staff was not available he brought in a work order to the accountant, which she paid in good faith, the work order was for $1,000.00. We were told we would have our ordered product in a week. We had expectations of this being longer than a week waiting period. Four weeks passed and we called his number many times with no answer or return call.”

BBB obtained a copy of the contract Mr. Kincaid uses, which lists PO Box 20734, Clarksville, TN; however, BBB’s investigation indicates that box was closed in Sept 2013.
