Firstly I must say that I am writing this report with the aim of just saving one single person from being completely ripped off by this scam of a "company" as I was, then it will have truly been worthwhile.

 

My situation

I opted for the 'distribution' & media outreach package from these guys who promised that my submitted press release would be sent to some of the biggest named companies on the planet (I won't mention any names). 

So I paid my money and waited excitedly for the results to begin to show up. I also kept an eye on my analytics and stats counter. 

1 day passed, nothing. 3 Days passed, still nothing. So I reached out and sent them an email. A guy called "Mike Santiago" got back to me and stated that he was one of the head honchos at the company and that he would personally look into it for me. [continued below]....

.....

Then a whole week passed and still no evidence of any shape or form that my press release had been even looked at let alone distributed. So I got back in touch with 'Mike' who replied with a very abusive email stating that I should "stop bothering them" or they would be 'partying hard with my money'. To say that I was completely shocked by his reply ould be an understatement!

I have requested a full refund of what I paid and have just been completely ignored. They have absolutely no intention of giving me my money back and no more intention of sending out my release.

It's been over a month and a bit now since I paid for the distribution services of NewsWire.com and not so much as a peek of my release or a refund. This is just so not fair or right.

So let me just say now that you have been officially warned. what ever you to DO Not use these guys or trust them with your money like I did. 

You have been pre-warned of this official scam company as well as Mr Mike Santiago himself!

#1 REBUTTAL Owner of company

Completely Fabricated by Scammer Babatunde Bada AKA Barry Bada from Dropshipbusinessesforsale.com

AUTHOR: Mike S. - (USA)

This post is a complete fabrication. I can be contacted directly at mike(at)newswire.com for further details about this person Babatunde Bada AKA "Barry Bada" from Dropshipbusinessesforsale.com who is trying to tarnish my reputation.

He attempted to scam me at flippa and sold me a dud of a site and even after I fully paid he did not transfer the entire site. He was still doing business as usual when he should have transferred the site to me.

Anyway, this post needs to be removed from RipOffReport as there is nothing factual about his claim. He never purchased anything and if he did, I welcome him to post the receipt number and the press release title of what he submitted.

We've been in business for over 10 years and have a stellar record with our customer service.

Feel free to contact me or call me anytime to discuss your press release distribution needs.
