www.TALKSUGAR.com aka 1089980 Alberta INC is Nothing more than a billing PLATFORM. ON 1-01-08 I RECEIVED a check for 281.52 that check was returned on 1-18 and my checking account was debited for 296.00 I made my own domain to warn others what to expect www.talksugarsucks.com all the girls stories are posted. Some havent even been paid at all and some received bad checks. This company is going around ripping people off. To close peoples accounts for any reason is fine, but to issue NSF Checks ISNT and nor is not paying them! I am the owner of www.talksugarsucks.com and In my case I received a NSF check so I contacted them and Received the following reply.
Apparently our bank made some error last month and a couple of checks bounced. This has never happened to us before, it really sucks, and I apologize. If you'd be willing to mail us the check back, we'll reissue
you another one as soon as we get it, via Xpress Post.
As far as that NSF fee, there's really nothing we can do about that. I strongly encourage you to speak with your bank manager and request that you not be charged, as it's really no fault of yours.
Then when I received a reply stating they received my check and they would be investigating the situation. While the investigation was going on I continued to take calls with TALKSUGAR.COM, because they promised to replace the check if I would simply send it back. I made a copy and sent it VIA UPS OVERNIGHT. In the middle of the investigation I am totally cut off from my account access at talksugar for NO REASON. I had 175.00 in there on top of the 300 that I have been screwed out of.

After more research these people were previous owners of NEXUSXI which defaulted in 2005 and was shut down for sending out a ton of NSF Checks in NOV 04. Something really needs to be done to rid these people from history repeating itself like it has done as recent as January 08 and Nov 04.
I have filled a complaint with RECOL. What else can I do, being im in the United States and they are located in Edmonton Alberta Canada? I have no issues at all flying to Canada.
