SEO Reputation Management at its best!

Over and above their spamming, new messages lead one to believe this company is seeking persons to test high tech products and evaluate them. They suck you into giving up three referrals BEFORE the bait and switch program kicks in. See: http://producttestpanel.com/referfriends.php

YOU MUST PURCHASE products or services and they IMMEDIATELY test charge your credit card with a $1.00 charge. I selected the FREE Video Professor offer before realizing I wanted none of the remaining offers.

It seems to me this company uses deceptive advertising to market their real agenda. SPAM If anyone has filed a complaint with the California Attorney General or the FTC, please contact me. If ANYONE has had a successful experience with this company I would like to know that as well. That said, I would hope other complain and file cases with their local state attorney general if they feel defrauded.

The DNS Look up information is the source of this offering website.

This disclaimer appears below the various offers and speaks for itself.

* Pursuant to the terms and conditions, you are required to complete two of the offers from above. You will need to meet all of the terms and conditions to qualify for the shipment of the gift.
