This company offers you a 'credit card' with a limit of $7,500. The card is for use only to purchase their products. Okay. Problem is, they don't tell you the product website for you to check out in advance. It's easy to see why because if you did no thinking person would ever give away $150 in order to get this card, which supposedly can be used to re-establish credit.

I was erroneously told by a source that the website was the very cool www.shopping.com. Incorrect. The website is www.usashopping.com. Huge difference.

As you can see, they have many "bargain" sales. Small print: all of which must be paid for in full. In other words, you cannot use your card for these sales.

You can't get "in" to check out the site though, until AFTER you pay your $150. (Yes, this is a carnival-style rip-off. P.T. Barnum would be proud.)

Once you get in, you find out anything worth buying you can't use your card for! So you paid $150 for nothing.

Beware!

I scrolled down the computer category -from towers to laptops, nothing at all is available except these paid in full "bargain" deals. (Oh, and only a retarded person would think they were really a bargain.) Same for televisions, from flat-screens to the cheapo ones. Even $18 cameras have to be paid in full "bargain" deals, which you can't use your card for them. (Oh, you can buy a DISPOSABLE camera with your card)

Try clicking on the "clothing" category. Only 1 item there. What a joke. And it's a $35 T-shirt (which you can buy with your card.)

Want some furniture? Sorry! Item after item - marked in red. You gotta pay in full.

These people are real scum-suckers. They think they ought to have $150 of your hard-earned money, for doing nothing but deceiving you. They claim to be flying just above the legal line, but as we all know, there are many horrendous scams perpetrated by individuals who know how to rip people off legally. The have no moral qualms about deception, misrepresentation, misleading ads. And it's clear these people are enthusiastic about their rip-off empire.

USA Platinum. The Emperor has no clothes.
