Rebl Corp clients urged to come forward
BUSINESS owners impacted by the collapse of Rebl Corp have been asked to come forward by the ombudsman.
Rebl Corp closed the doors of its Nicklin Way office on Thursday leaving dozens of staff without jobs.
The company, which included Media Rebl, Digital Rebl and Business Rebl, helped businesses "create and deliver engaging videos, social media content, digital marketing solutions, and extensive business systems".
Clients of Rebl Corp have expressed concern they were now locked in to contracts with third-party finance companies after signing up for a "free social media package".
The Australian Small Business and Family Enterprise Ombudsman has asked business owners impacted by the closure to reach out.
"ASBFEO has become aware that businesses trading under the REBL Corp banner may have ceased operating based on media reporting in the Sunshine Coast Daily," a spokesperson said.
"If your business has been impacted by this, we encourage you to make contact with our office on email@example.com or phone 1300 650 460 or lodge a dispute with us online.
"We are aware of other businesses still operating that offer 'no cost' or 'cost neutral' in-store or online advertising packages and warn small businesses to be extremely cautious of any approaches that they might receive.
"This follows the collapse of Viewble Media and The Shoppers Network that has created serious issues for the businesses involved."
