Very interesting slander|
Now this is VERY interesting, would it be possible if I sent you an email to forward the original email attached by return so I can see the header source and prove where it came from as this if 100% slander.
We are at this moment in time in dispute with Ukbands. net for allowing such rubbish to be written about us. If you hang on a second I will mail you an open later from the owner of the company Allan Robinson to show you.
1) We have at no point been contacted by the white, I remember they have been contacted by us to answer and enter into discussion about the many many claims our members are making about them. NO REPLY.. see their profile: http://www.ukbands.net/profile.php?id=2889
they were banned because they advertised their service in this forum in 2004 and as always we like to verify who and what is posted to protect the people who are reading it (we did not supply any business services in 2004 so to make the excuse they were a thread falls flat.
2) It has been a long while (read the post dates) since bands have openly complained about a company called "the While" after 27 compilations, they have made quite a tidy living. (hope they have provided accurate tax returns to reflect t he cash made over the years on 27 compilation CD's
£500 per track 20 tracks on each CD £10,000
27 compilations = £270,000.00 (over 1/4 of a million quid folks) and NOT ONE Success story to date... do not get sucked in people... after all these years NOT 1 person I have ever spoken top and mentioned the white have ever seen one of these compilations (any bands that have paid £500 ever received one?)
we would like to have a copy for quality control.
Internet Slander a letter from Allan Robinson
.... Before starting the business I asked Trading Standards to visit and give any help or advice. After their visit I applied the information given in order to adhere correctly to the law and good business practice White was then copyrighted and Trademarked, and the business was launched. Since then I have produced 27 albums.
That’s why UKBands .net rang me up asking for my database......so they could steal my business and be in direct competition. By the way not only would that be against The Data Protection Act, none of my contacts in the Industry would be very pleased either. UKBands. net have been informed they are breaking Copyright and Trademark laws by displaying my logo without permission. They also will not publish on their website the letters I have sent them asking them to desist in their illegal activities.
Why would we want to display a logo for them?
These threads have been here some 4 years and not 1 single person, not even the white have defended themselves, why is this?
if they tried they would fail and they do it all on a 1 to 1 basis which avoids publicity.
NOW it seems they have opened up a BIG can of worms if this text is true, if it is not and we do not receive the proof then this info may have to be removed but rest assured they will receive calls tomorrow about this.
we will see...

|I couldn't respond to your mail, something wrong with the webmail today. Anyway, all the messages came via MySpace Mail, as this Sean insisted. Have you got an account, so I can forward them?|

|I sent you the email address via a Private message.|

|Yesterday, i was conned out of a £100 deposit by this sean guy working for the white. i did a thorough google search to check everything was legit and unfortunately i did not find this page. I have filed disputes on paypal and messaged them and am currently receiving childish angry responses in the same way that Fermato did. I will also shortly be contacting the police. I believe it would be helpful if between the people on here we can gather up as much evidence as we can to provide the police with, so that they can perform a thorough investigation.|

I am in the same boat people. I got contacted via myspace by somebody claiming "Music is our message". They expressed an interest in my band (by sending the same email they send everybody) and I responded.
I spoke to sean over the phone on a Friday and he said all he needed to get everything going was a £100 deposit asap as there was only one band slot left on the CD.
I didnt get paid till Monday and said I couldnt pay till then and he started acting short saying things like "is there no other way you can sort it" etc.
Upon standing my ground he agreed he could hold the position till then (I thaught this seemed strange how he changed his mind so quickly).
So I paid my deposit......and I was due to pay the remaining £400 today.....upon searching for their website on google, which by the way braught up nothing. I tried searching for music is our message.
It braught up these threads and im safe to say upon reading everything here I am not going to pay.
So thanks guys for saving me £400!
Does anybody know if theres any form of action that could be taken?
Or anyway of trying to get the £100 back!?

They recently contacted us a few days ago via Myspace with of course the exact same letter as everybody else, two places left, yada yada yada.
I don't know anything about legal rights and all that malarky but i imagine if you claimed it back and just told them that they have done absolutely nothing for your band (which they probably haven't having read all the replies in this forum) then maybe you can get your money back. Or threaten them with saying you'll contact the police!

These guys have tried talking to us about 10 times on myspace and each time we told were to go!
There is no need for these money grabbing pirate basterds in the music industry at all!
