I order a web site from http://www.4adults.co.uk/why_us.htm

This turned out to be too good to be true. They created a so-called website for me.

I was told that i can keep all the profits i make from the web site, (wrong! this turned out to be a big lie as im going to explain.

This is the article I read from the information given to the clients

4adults information

"We take care of all technical requirements and hosting while the site itself automatically manages all payments from start to finish - leaving you with 100% of the profits which are paid directly to you."

I ordered a web site from them and I was ready to advertise in a couple of newspapers and adult magazines, which cost a lot of money, to promote my new web site.

But first I spoke with a friend mine and asked him to join my web site site, to see if everything works properly, which he did.

The web site charged him 10 pounds for a one week trial.

This following information has been taken from my web control panel :


"www.4adults.co.uk

Fast Stats - Website Members

You have the following members:

Member Name
Transaction ID
Membership Type

Total Price

Tyas
000************* Trial Membership

5.29


The total price is displayed after the following:

- There is a 15% transaction fee **
- 2.50 per member (covers content for members, bandwidth, and server resources)

** The transaction fee covers the card processing on your website, you are welcome to use your own merchant account as an upgrade (price on request). You will find that we offer the best fees. Saving you time and money.

We do not charge for sending your cheque"

At this point I am laughing !!


This is what they call the 100% present profit I will make, so from 10 Pounds the give me 5.29.

I contacted the company last friday to report that the web site is not work properly, and why they have charged me 4.60 for the member that joined (which was my friend).

I was told to contact technical support which I have done, but when I mentioned "what happens about the people who join the site and pay their money", he said "don't worry its not a problem".

He did not answer my question and he closed the phone on me.

Then finally today when I checked my web site, the problem is STILL there i phoned them up to complain about it and to tell them that they are ripping people off, and once again, he hung up on me again.

technical support

I called again asking for my money back (145)which I had payed them by cheque. He said they can't pay me back, so I then said that I was going to report them.

He said "no problem bye bye" and he closed the phone on me for a third time!

* I forgot to mention that i asked for a phone number for Technical Support,and he said they dont one, and the only way to contact them is via e-mail.

This turned out to be too good to be true

AUTHOR: Nicholas - (United Kingdom)

I ordered a web site from http://www.4adults.co.uk/why_us.htm

This is a warning to all people worlwide

This turned out to be too good to be true. They created a so-called website for me.

I was told that i can keep all the profits i make from the web site, (wrong! this turned out to be a big lie as im going to explain).

This is the article I read from the information given to the clients

4adults information

But first I spoke with a friend mine and asked him to join my web site, to see if everything works properly, which he did.

The web site charged him 10 pounds for a one week trial.

Then my friend told me the web site is a rip off, he passed me over his password to log in so i can see it for my self which i did.

Access has been denied, so i paid back the 10 pound
to my friend as he was right about it.

check this article as i mentioned above what it says,


(from start to finish - leaving you with 100% of the profits)


Not really, look now how they turn things around,

I was told to contact technical support which I have done, but when I mentioned "what happens about the people who join the site and pay their money", he said "don't worry its not a problem". Not a problem? they think people find the money on the streets? do you believe this?

He did not answer my question and he closed the phone on me.

* I forgot to mention that i asked for a phone number for Technical Support,and he said they dont have one, and the only way to contact them is via e-mail. plus i am meant to pay them 9.95 a month for their expert services - which is another rip off !

I will not stop here, as wherever i find a search engine on the internet which allows me to report them, i will carry on until everybody knows what villians they are.
