Vindale Research, Sayforexample Lying, Acting like a respectable business, Robbing contractors. No reimbursement. Having to put money up front. New York New York
*Consumer Suggestion: READ! PEOPLE, READ!!!!!!
*General Comment: New name
*Consumer Comment: YAHOO HotJobs and Work At Home Ripoffs
They will promise you reimbursement for you to go on the Internet and sample products. You put money up front. You never get it back. They come up with creative ways you did something wrong, so they can dismiss you and not pay you the money you earned and never reimburse you for the money you spent on their behalf, as they promised.
I checked with BBB in NY. BBB said they received complaints from other customers, such as not receiving money because of some bogus transgression the contractor committed. This is all trumped up so they can make money off you, then block you from further communication with them. And they tell you you forfeit any money because you "terminated." They terminated me. I did not terminate myself. The BBB said that Vindale Research is an unaccredited business because of what they do to their contractors and several times they were brought to court, lost the case, but admitted no wrongdoing.
Vindale comes across like they have a realistic complaint about you. But it's all BS. They just want to drop you and keep your money. To consumers: don't fall for anything they say. Stay away from them. They try to come across as legit, but they aren't. They said to me that they didn't get an electronic signal from certain products and services I evaluated. For instance, "My Private Credit." I sent them the email I received from this business and they said I was abusing the Support dept. with emails. I was only trying to prove what I had done in good faith. This was another baloney way to get rid of you and keep money you made. Don't be fooled by Vindale Research.
I have had to get new credit cards because they had my numbers. I have warned my credit company of their practices and what to expect. Vindale asked for "credit inquiries" to prove I had evaluated the services, etc. I showed them a line item and they rejected it. They wanted to see all my info.
They also claimed they couldn't read the Forwards I sent them, that they were coming to them blank. I checked with AOL. There was no problem with my AOL mail service and I had no trouble forwarding my mail to other people. This is how they lie and cheat.
Please, everyone, stay away from Vindale Research, Sayforexample.com and their other aliases. I am in the middle of getting what info I can to report to a certain Consumer Board who act upon these complaints. I've also filed reports with the Federal Trade Commission and other consumer groups.
I only asked for the money I earned and the reimbursements.
