I notice that the title does not give the full web address. it is www.pinnacle.uk.com
We were approached by this company to see if we would advertise in a local golf club's annual brochure.
We decided that it was not for us so did nothing about it.
Without our knowledge or consent this company decided it was going to put an ad in the brochure.
We have never consented to or sent any artwork. This company has sent us a bill plus reminders. saying that they needed the artwork.
We wrote to them saying we did not want to go into the brochure and now they say they are going to put a generic ad in for us.
Our solicitor says that they have no authority to do this and we have warned them about copying from our website.
Be very, very careful if you are approached by this company.

Swinton have a very strange system.
I bought car insurance last year from them with their £40 cash back offer. I was initially happy with the deal as I CLAIMED my £40 cash back and received it (NOTE the claimed is in upper case letters).
I assumed, but was never told, that they add the £40 to the premium if you pay in instalments to cover costs if you cancel within 90 days.
How wrong I was. This year I decided to pay up front but they added £99 to my premium which they said I could CLAIM BACK after 90 days.
In effect, as I said to the Swinton Agent, you are demanding that I lend you £99 for 3 months interest free Of course there was reply to this.
My shock came when I met an ex employee of Swintons and was told by him that he resigned from Swintons because of he did not like the motive behind taking this extra money. He claims that, allegedly, up to 25% of Swintons clients were not claiming the money back.
At best Swinton are underhandedly borrowing money from clients.
Because of this i will never deal with them again.
