Warning about Scammers Targeting CityMax Customers

Posted February 28th, 2013 in CityMax.com News by Sean

We have received reports of customers receiving phone calls from companies or individuals claiming to be affiliated with CityMax. The calls appear to be coming primarily from the following phone numbers:

801-494-1477 (Salt Lake City, Utah)
425-296-0294 (Kirkland, Washington)

The callers, who may go by the name Dream Real Solutions or other names, may claim they are partners or subcontractors of CityMax. These individuals may try to sell website upgrade or SEO services, claiming action needs to be taken on your website. These calls are scams and are not from us, and we advise you to exercise caution if you receive any calls of this nature.

Furthermore, the claims the callers are making – for example, that your site needs to be “upgraded to HTML5” or moved to a different host lest you risk problems – are false.

Calls from the CityMax team will come from a 604 area code. We’ll never call to sell you website upgrades or SEO services.

If you have received a call of this nature, we’d love to speak with you. Please contact our support team with any information you have regarding the call.

UPDATE:

A big thank-you to everyone who contacted us to tell us your story about these scammers. The amount of information we received was quite overwhelming and very much appreciated. With your help, we have taken steps to stop the company from mentioning any association with us.

Please note that this doesn’t mean the company can’t contact you and simply represent themselves. Just be wary if anyone calls you and makes comments about your site that sound unusual or alarmist. You are always welcome to contact our support team to ask questions about anything you hear about your website.

CityMax Work Retreat 2013

Posted February 1st, 2013 in CityMax.com News by Matthew

In January, our CityMax team was fortunate enough to partake in a staff retreat. Our team set off to the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia to enjoy a weekend of relaxation and team building exercises.

During the day we were busy at work taking a course on increasing productivity within our work and personal lives. However, as night approached, the vacation lodge we were staying at was host to all sorts of activities. If we were not engaged in competitive card games, we were huddled around the TV set watching our favorite ice hockey teams duel it out.

We also had the opportunity to sample some of the great hospitality the Sunshine Coast offers by visiting local hot spots such as “The Blue Heron” restaurant.

As with all getaways, our retreat did have to come to a conclusion. Our team has since been back at the CityMax offices hard at work providing the best web site builder service in the industry!
