SEO Reputation Management at its best!

I first started with this site in May of this year, I began noticing things weren't as described by the site. In order to take advantages of so called perks offered when you sign up, you would have to pay 196.00 to do so, with this you got a free store, now I don't know any other site where you pay upfront to get a "free" store. The site was not living up to promises it had made to its sellers, there were no feeds to get your item seen, no google placements or anything. The only sales you made were by other sellers and you were encouraged to play games with other sellers to make sales.

When questioning management about the problems of the site, they were extremely silent, it was very difficult to get a response. Many people tried to cancel their membership and told they could not cancel until the anniversary date of joining the site, some tried to get refunds and management said no refunds.

It became obvious that something wasn't quite right when members were banned from the site and all complaints in their forums were deleted. Also it was common knowledge that a couple of people had received preferential treatment by the owner for their loyalty, the buying of products from their store and gifts sent to these individuals. I encourage anyone reading this and the other reports about this company, to be aware of its history, it has been around since 1998 and touts itself as a new site. The current management has been around sine 2003 and most of the same problems that plaqued it then are still around today. As the saying goes Caveat emptor.
