Stanford Who's Who
410 Park Avenue New York, New York USA

Stanford Who's Who I was under the impression that this was a legitimate business network breaking into the Australian market. They had plenty of ads on LinkedIn (my favourite social media) and I didn't even pay much attention to the fact they didn't have many followers as I thought they were new in Australia. So I reluctantly signed up for a trial one year membership for $99.00 which included my press release, being included in their book, certificate and access to other members. I was then contacted several times with requests to provide info on myself so I technically wrote my own press release that was sent back to me later with more mistakes to correct.  New York New York

 I was under the impression that this was a legitimate business network breaking into the Australian market. They had plenty of ads on LinkedIn (my favourite social media) and I didn't even pay much attention to the fact they didn't have many followers as I thought they were new in Australia. So I reluctantly signed up for a trial one year membership for $99.00 which included my press release, being included in their book, certificate and access to other members. I was then contacted several times with requests to provide info on myself so I technically wrote my own press release that was sent back to me later with more mistakes to correct. To my horror, I was charged in excess of $580 on my account - charges I never authorised for things I never saw come to fruition. When I challenged the company about the services they provided - they said they didn't provide any actual networking services apart from mentioning me on their website which as it turns out is also shamed and blamed all over the Internet - so I am even embarrassed to be associated with this as a Professional. The other thing is that the website was dead for 3 months and they still charged website maintenance on my card. I had now to cancel my card altogether. This is beyond ridiculous.
