Saw TV commercial saying they were givivng away you pay shipping. owner said that once you reviewed this you would be using more of their products. Couldn't get thru on ph# listed so ordered online expecting the same offer. Shipping charges totalled $6.95.
Two days later 3 charges totalling $6.95 show up on charge acc't. Thought that was end of charges. Videos arrived a week later. Haven't even been able to look at program as of yet.

Two weeks later charge of $189.95 shows up - overdrawing my acct. -causing ataumatic coverage from savings acc't.
Customer service issues R.A. # but it won't return money till i pay for return shipping, they ok return product, then 2-3 weeks to return $. Raise hell with supervisor & get 3 day refund.

Call back after finding out they will keep sending me other products I am not requesting, but will keep charging me for these other products if I don't have them back in their possesion in 10 days at my expense. No answer on ph #. I am disabled & have glacoma & can't read the find print they use, but am falling victim to their shell game. Meanwhile they have depleted my only cash i have to live on till my next month disability check or they get it back in my acc't.

#1 Consumer Comment

DO YOU KNOW WHAT Ebay is?

AUTHOR: Joe - (U.S.A.)

I SAW THE SAME COMMERCIAL BUT NOPLACE ON THE COMMERCIAL I SAW DOES IT EXPLAIN WHAT eBAY IS.

YOU MIGHT HAVE HEARD OF IT BUT YOU MIGHT WANT TO READ ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE'S EXPERIENCES WITH IT RIGHT HERE ON THE RIP OFF REPORT.

I THINK IT IS SLIGHTLY MISLEADING ADVERTISING IF YOU HAVE NEVER HEARD OF IT AND AS IT IS PRESENTED IN THE COMMERCIAL, IT SEEMS LIKE A NEW OPERATING SYSTEM THAT CAN GENERATE A LOT OF MONEY FOR YOU.

I DO NOT DO BUSINESS --ANY BUSINESS ONLIN E BECAUSE THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A TRULY SECURE WEBSITE --AND THERE ARE A LOT OF FAKE ONES OUT THERE PRETENDING TO BE LEGITIMATE. IF A HUMAN BEING CAN CREATE THE SO-CALLED SECURE SITE ANOTHER ONE CAN HACK INTO IT AND STEAL THE INFORMATION ON IT.
AND MILLIONS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD MAKE A GOOD LIVING DOING EXACTLY THAT.

TO ME -AND YOU ARE FREE TO FORM YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS -- eBAY IS A SEMI-RESPECTABLE, HIGHLY RISKY WEBSITE WHERE YOU CAN SUPPOSEDLY BUY ALL KINDS OF THINGS CHEAP. SO IT APPEALS TO YOUR PRURIENT SENSE OF GREED AND PRIDE THAT YOU WERE ABLE TO STEAL A DEAL... THE ONLY PROBLEM IS IF YOU SELL ON eBAY, YOU MIGHT NOT GET PAID OR GET YOUR MERCHANDISE RETURNED TO YOU IN BAD CONDITION. IF YOU ORDER FROM eBAY, YOU MIGHT GET STOLEN MERCHANDISE, COUNTERFEIT OR FAKE MERCHANDISE, NO MERCHANDISE AT ALL OR MERCHANDISE THAT WAS NOT AT ALL WHAT YOU ORDERED AT THE PRICE YOU AGREED UPON.

IR YOU WERE DUMB ENOUGH TO PUT YOUR CREDIT CARD INFORMATION OR BANK ACCOUNT NUMBER OR ANY OTHER KIND OF PERSONAL FINANCIAL INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET, YOU ARE AT RISK OF BEING RIPPED OFF! CROOKS CAN TAKE MONEY OUT AS LONG AS THEY HAVE ACCESS.; YOU ARE WARNED.

PAYPAL IS NOT ANY GOOD EITHER AS I HAD $200 IN A SORRY PAYPAL ACCOUNT AND IT GOT HACKED AND STOLEN. NO ACCOUNTABILITY. I NEVER RECEIVED A FINANCIAL STATEMENT FROM THEM LIKE YOU DO WITH FDIC INSURED RESPONSIBLE FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS SO I THINK THEY ARE BOGUS TOO.

I THINK eBAY OVERALL IS A YUPPIE SCAM ALTHOUGH SOME PEOPLE HAVE ACTUALLY RECEIVED WHAT THEY ORDERED AND THE MERCHANTS WERE HONEST. THE QUESTION IS; DO YOU WANT TO PUT YOUR MONEY AT RISK IN CASE YOU GET ONE OF THE DISHONEST PEOPLE WHO ADVERTISE ON eBAY. There were crooks from a fire district here in Travis County that was selling stolen gear on eBAY and got caught.

WHY DO YOU WANT TO GET MIXED UP IN eBAY FOR ANYWAY? ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE DISABLED AND ON A FIXED INCOME1

I AM NOT SAYING THE VIDEO PROFESSOR IS DISHONEST. I THINK YOU WOULD BE BETTER SERVED TO LEARN HOW TO PROGRAM COMPUTERS OR HOW TO OPERATE THEM BETTER INSTEAD OF GETTING INVOLVED WITH eBAY OR ONLINE TRADING WHICH PROMISE A LOT MORE THAN THEY ACTUALLY HAVE DELIVERED FOR PEOPLE I HAVE KNOWN. YOU CAN READ ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE'S MISADVENTURES WITH eBAY ON RIP OFF REPORT!

WHAT THEY ARE OFFERING HERE IS HOW TO USE THE Ebay SITE TO MAKE MONEY (SUPPOSEDLY) AND THAT IS NOT DISHONEST. I DON'T THINK YOU ARE READY FOR IT.
I DON'T THINK I AM READY FOR IT AND I TOOK SEVERAL COMPUTER CLASSES IN SCHOOL RECENTLY!

I DON'T THINK YOU WANT TO GET MIXED UP WITH THE IFFY PIRATE MARKET AND FLEA CIRCUS ON E-BAY I DON'T CARE IF BILL GATES OFFERS THE COURSE!

THERE ARE MORE SCAMS ON THE INTERNET THAN I COULD EVER LIST HERE! BUT IF YOU DO NOT PUT YOUR HOME ADDRESS, REAL NAME,SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER,DRIVERS LICENSE NUMBER,BIRTH DATE, FINANCIAL INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET AT ANY TIME --AND NOT YOUR PHONE NUMBER EITHER-- YOU SHOULD BE OK!

I DO NOT THINK VIDEO PROFESSOR IS A SCAM BUT IT DOES SEEM TOO EXPENSIVE FOR MOST OF US ON FIXED INCOMES. YOU ARE LUCKY THAT THEY OFFERED TO GIVE YOU YOUR MONEY BACK.

OTHERS WHO ADVERTISE ON THE INTERNET ARE NOT AS HONEST!

YOU ARE VRY LUCKY!

flat out scam!!

AUTHOR: John Smith - (U.S.A.)

This company is a flat out scam!
don't give them your cc# or any info.
once they have you in their system, they will take you for everything you got.
as for "randy" this guy is an idiot,stuck in a dead end job, who can't understand why a person with disabilities would be trying to get ahead by learning a computer program.Randy ,Go back to your dead- end job and keep your nose out of serious people's business.Eat your broccoli and drink your milk,before you comment on what "real" people with "real" lives are doing.

p.s. video proffesor is a scam!

Priority

AUTHOR: Randy - (U.S.A.)

So let me get this straight, your disabled with glaucoma, living hand to mouth on monthly disability, but your purchasing video professor so you can learn to play around on a computer? I have a job, with two kids and a wife, am physically able to go to work everyday, but I don't have the money to be getting computer lessons from a video professor. Maybe you should learn financial responsibility first, then start ordering things off the internet, that way this might give you some room for mistakes that are made everyday in the financial world. If you don't have the money for it, then dont buy it. Quit using physical disabilities as a copout for financial irresponsibility.
