This company is a fraud and is an "F"-rated organization by the BBB (which I unfortunately found out after dealing with them). While the Web site is deceiving in that it looks like a professional organization, I believe that it may actually be operated out of the one bedroom apartment of "Scott and Vanessa." Data Depot engages in false advertising in violation of FTC regulations, posting stock Internet photos of supposedly "satisfied customers" of their services all over their Web site. Actually, there appears to be more unsatisfied customers than satisfied customers. I found one of the images they used of a supposedly satisfied customer on several other websites all over the Internet.

If you do your research, you will see that there is a long list of completely dissatisfied customers that this company has robbed by their fraudulent business practices and failure to provide the services they were paid to provide. Their lists are full of bad email addresses and duplicates and their email software programs do not work as advertised. They have you sign a contract (which appears to be legally unenforceable) waiving your rights to a refund. They will claim that this is because many people try to get their email lists or software and then not pay for them. I wonder why that is. I believe that there are enough complaints on the Internet about them that maybe a class action suit for consumer fraud could be brought and all clients refunded their money.

Moreover, these people need to be taken off their high horse where they believe they can get away with robbing consumers--and placed out of business. Hopefully, they can be criminally prosecuted. They are a danger to the public. I would not be surprised if the FL address is a front for a Nigerian crime ring. I also am contacting the Justice Department as others have suggested. If enough of us complain, authorities will have to stop ignoring the consumer complaints and investigate these scum bags.
