Telephone Company Scams

The telecommunications industry in Australia is rife with scams and dodgy sales tactics that are a real minefield for small businesses. Over the last 10 years, we have seen the rise and fall of the phone system bundle deal and frankly we couldn’t be happier to see it go. It all began with a company called Nation Telecoms Group who in the late 90’s built a massive empire based on the bundling of phone calls and telecommunications hardware similar to a mobile phone contract. The difference was that the finance usually came from a third party and the contract was usually 4 years or more. Many companies basically borrowed money from the bank and paid NTG 10 times what the equipment was worth without knowing that they had borrowed money at all. The sales staff working these deals employed tactics that you might expect to find in a used car yard. Many small businesses were burned by these deals and thankfully the large majority of new clients that contact us never what see a bundle deal again.

We have seen all of the tricks, if you have seen a deal that seems too good to be true why not ring us for a free consultation before you sign on the dotted line? Call us on 1300 799 659
