I hate Southwestern Bell. They are so incompetent, incapable of placing lines, writing correct phone bills, adjusting errors, bad phone service in general...including assigning my phone numbers to someone else. I found that out when my phone was dead and called to find out why. I also resent the fact they have exclusive use of cell phone territory in my area which disallows me to have competitive rates like other areas. They have rude repairmen and I believe they would say anything to make a buck. Bad all the way around in my book, from service to repairs to sales people.

Qbate Doesn't Pay
I ordered a child's jacket featuring Thomas the Train as a Christmas present for my nephew. The jacket was nearly $50. I figured since I would get the entire amount back what the heck. I filled out all the paperwork and mailed it in. I didn't hear anything for several months. I wasn't concerned since I had been warned that it would take quite some time for the rebate to be processed. I finally contacted Qbate and was told I had made an error when filing therefore they weren't going to pay. I was furious. They had plenty of time to return the paperwork to me so I could correct the error. They chose not to do anything and allow the due date to pass. I wrote and told them that I intended to tell everyone I knew that they were unfair and unethical. A week later I received an email telling me that a supervisor had reviewed my rebate paperwork and was going to make an exception. It would be processed and I would receive payment. Well, guess what? That's been months ago and I still haven't received my rebate.

Gallagher Bassett evil! fraud! dishonest! corrupt! Houston Texas
Warning! Warning!! Do not get hurt at work in Texas, but if you do, file it under your regular health insurance. GALLAGHER BASSETT is my WC insurance company. They are as evil as can be. This company has denied every test and procedure that my doctors have requested, but by fighting them I finally did receive my necessary treatments. By GB denying my treatments, they only prolonged my suffering. I injured my back early in 03'at work that resulted in two ruptured disc that caused bilateral radiculopathy. I had problems walking [nuerogenic cladication] and after physical therapy they tried to send me back to work, eventhough my two MRI's, CT Myelogram, EMG, and FCE revealed major problems. I even had epidural nerve blocks done. My neurosurgeons were pushing for surgery in 03', but GB refused to authorize it. GB has cut my pay off time and time again. I had to file with TWCC to get my benefits reinstated, and that was only by going through several painful BRC's and CCH's. TWCC does nothing to the insurance companies when they violate the law. GB has violated the TWCC Act numerous times in my case and TWCC just sweeps it under the rug like it never happened. So far, I have dealt with three of GB's corrupt lawyers. One even threaten one of my doctors. He told my doctor that if he authorized any more physical therapy it would hurt his standings with future TWCC patients. This is well documented in my doctor's report. GB had their doctors do retrospective reviews in my case. Their reports were very conflicting. Once you read them, you realize what GB had done. GB sent their doctors bits and pieces of reports in my medical file. They only sent what they wanted reviewed. This is insurance bad faith, and it is against the law. Still, TWCC does nothing about this fraud. By fighting this insurance company, I finally did recieve my back surgery. I had two laminectomies and a spinal fusion [rods, screws] by mid 05'. Yes, that is 2 1/2 years later after my work-related accident. By prolonging my suffering, I now have nerve damage that resulted in a diminished patellar reflex [knee] and an absent achilles reflex [ankle]. But the funny thing is...I have a CCH and an Appeals Panel decison authorizing my surgery that GB refuses to honor. I also finally received an authorization from GB authorizing my surgery. GB states that it will not pay for my surgery. TWCC will not do anything to make them pay. They state that I have to file in district court to get them to pay. TWCC is worthless! Why did I go through this system if they only look out for the insurance companies! Now I know why doctors want nothing to do with the TWCC system...they never get paid! This is only a short version of what I have been through. My credit is runied and I am about to lose my house. I am still under my doctors care and cannot work. My only income now is from my wife, and she is 8 months pregnant. When the baby is born, she will be off work and that means no income coming in. Thank you evil and corrupt GB and worthless will reap what you sow!!! Matt The Woodlands, TexasU.S.A.

Asset Acceptance Corrupt Company, Ripoff Warren Michigan
To everyone who has taken the time to write or read the reports about Asset Acceptance, there is a way to fight back against Asset Acceptance and companies like it. You need to use the media. It's a great story!(billions stolen from consumers). So tell it to: 60 Minutes, Dateline, Your local News Ivestigation team, even the FBI. They all have web sites where you can tell your story. All it takes is one 60 Minutes investigation of Asset Acceptance, And they'll be gone. Once the story goes national, agencies that should have been on top of this problem to begin with(the FTC, Law Enforcement, the Legal System),will finally have to take notice and do something about the ilegal practices of Asset Accceptance. Law-Makers might even change the laws,(if the see it as politically advantageous to do so) to better protect us and prevent this from happening in the future. So tell your story, be honest, and make a difference. David Burbank, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Ramada Plaza Resorts ripoff fraud Florida USA
Ramada Plaza Resorts ripoff-false evidence-defining NO refund-selling to minors Ft.Lauderdale Florida ..... My name is Rena and i am 18 years old and the Ramada Plaza Resorts rippped me off. I am not even of legal age to get a hotel room from the Ramada Resots according to the internet in which I immediately printed once I found out about the rip-off. My vacation was between June 25-July 2, 2003 and when we arrived in the hotel in Ft. Lauderdale it smelled like disinfectant spray or something and the bed covers were sticky and when we pulled them off the transparent sheets revealed the blood stained mattresses. I worked really hard for this vacation and I was hoping to relax and get my money's worth but I couldn't because I was scared to take a shower in my GOLD hotel(as my voucher described) because the water was yellow, even in the toilet. We looked out the window to see our view and the pool was green with no one in it in the middle of the day in Florida. I missed a week and a half of non- paid working time to have the time of my life in the Bahamas and all my money was gone. I am a considerate person and I do not deserve to be treated like this. I have been through a lot and i am sure all of you deserve the same. If we come together and write CNN or a really huge news company about this we all might get our money back and shut down this business. Write me back if you are with me.

Primegra rip-off scam Internet Worldwide
Primegra has taken 56.90 out of my checking account as well. I'm calling my bank in the morning to fix it so they can't do it anymore. I read Primegra's terms and conditions when I signed up for the free sample. It said I would have 2 weeks to cancel my subscription before I would be charged the 56.90. I just wanted to try the free sample, and it hadn't arrived yet a week later, so I decided I'd cancel and just wait for the sample. Since Primegra didn't list a phone number, I had to use their web site to cancel. I used their form at (contact us). After filling out the entire form and selecting the heading cancel my subscription, I got to the next page that said Thank you for contacting Primegra, so I know they got my message, but they never cancelled my shipment. I shouldn't have been charged because I cancelled well within two weeks. Because they don't supply a phone number, they probably are crooked, since I guess you could never prove that they received your message via their web site. Peter Ottawa, OhioU.S.A.

OAN Services ripoff California USA
OAN Services And Nationwide VMail Inc.OAN Services And Nationwide VMail Inc. And Verizon Billed for services not ordered or recieved Northridge California ..... In June 2003 when I received my Verizon phone bill I noticed a new service charge from a company called OAN Services. OAN had billed $14.95 set-up fee on behalf of Nationwide VMail Inc., for services I did not order or receive. I immediately called Verizon to complain. I was told by the Verizon rep. that the charge would be removed and a bill block would be put on my account to prevent future charges from OAN or any other non Verizon company. In July 2003 when I received my next Verizon bill, I found that the $14.95 (+ tax) billed by OAN Services from June, was carried over to the July bill and a new charge of $12.95 from OAN Services on behalf of Nationwide VMail Inc. I called Verizon again to complain and was told that the charges were sent back to OAN and the bill block was in effect. However the charges would keep mounting and appearing on my bill until OAN Services stopped billing my account. This is a fraudulent and criminal billing practice. Verizon did not have any verification that this was a legitimate bill. Verizon should require proof from the company presenting the bill, that the customer placed the order. OAN And Nationwide VMail Inc. should have never billed my account. Again this is fraud and these criminals should be prosecuted. Verizon should be forced to change there billing practices and all companies involved should be ordered to pay restitution to the consumers they Ripped-Off ! Richard Hesperia, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Providian Emerge ripoff Dallas Texas
Closed account and sold it to Emerge ..... I have read several of the reports and feel for these consumers. I, too, was a victim of the Providian / Emerge credit swap. I had been with Providian for a little over a year and had added a couple of insurances to my account - just in case. When my husband and I decided to look into a mortgage for a second home - we called our credit card companies and removed all the extras so more of our payment would be going to the interest and principal instead of having the added expense of the extras. Within a month (before the next statement) I received a letter in the mail saying that my account had been closed, had been sold to Emerge and that they would be collecting the payment but I would not have any usuable credit limit. Besides the fact that I did not receive a statement from Emerge until almost 2 months later and they charged me a late fee for the missed payment, the interest rate was 29.9%. I totally feeled ripped off. Like any other consumer, I got busy with my life and may have been late by a day or two on 1, maybe 2, payments but I always paid and always paid much more than the required payment. Well, in the long run, I got the better of them (if you can call it that) - I used some money from an equity account I have and paid the account off. I guess they didn't get as much interest out of me as they thought they would. Jan Brunswick, MarylandU.S.A.

Leasecomm Ripoff, Fraudulant practices etc Woburn Massachusetts
A couple of years ago, a seminar came to Melbourne. A Friend and I attended. We both thought it was great to be able to start a buisness of our own. We had agreed that I would put everything in my name because she already had terrible credit. So, I signed the paperwork for a Virtual Terminal for credit card transactions that was suppose to include my website. Soon, I was having financial difficulty and told Leasecomm that I would not be able to continue with the contract. I would like to cancel. They told me no, because it was not cancelable. Although they did cancel their service to the website that I had and the website no longer exists!! I ended up closing the account that the payments were being automatically debited from. They continued to bill me and call me with ridicious amounts. They left me alone for a couple of months and then I got served with papers to appear in court. Now, I have a judgment against me, by Leasecomm. Recently I have been trying to clean up my credit and happened to come across the attorney general's website for the State of Florida and discovered this suit against Leasecomm. Thank God someone did something about this. Now I need to contact Leasecomm to get them to submit a Satisfaction of Judgment to the Clerk of Courts and to all three of the credit reporting agencies to cancel the judgment. What a pain in the neck!!! Leona Melbourne, FloridaU.S.A.

NACS ripoff deception St Petersburg Florida
Like all the other reports, I too recieved a call sometime late in December saying that I had been approved for a credit card with a credit limit of up to 2,500. To me this did not seem like a scam because I just recently turned 18 and I have several bills in my name, so I had been recieving credit card offers frequently. I had been told that the credit card would help me build my credit, they said if I paid my bill on time they would report it to the 3 major credit bureaus every 3 months and that by six months of on-time payments, I would have AAA credit. They also said that I would have to pay a One-time fee of 200 dollars, but that I would recieve the $200 back in coupons that would go toward the payment of my credit card. I told the man the I did not have the money, but he said they would depit my account until I had enough. I gave them my account number and on January 10, they debited my account for $200 that I did not have! My account was overdrafted, so not only did I have to pay $200, I had to pay the bank an extra $25 for the overdraft. About a week or so later, I recieved a small letter to sign. In this letter was the first time I learned of a Merchant Card. I immediately sat down and composed a letter frankfully stating that I was not interested in recieving a merchant card, and that if I was not going to recieve a credit card I wanted my money back. I even left contact numbers in the letter. No one contacted me. About a week ago I recieved my package. 2 Crappy catalogs and a stupid merchant card. I was very upset. I have tried calling the number in the package but have been put on hold several times. What do I do? Sharon Chicago, IllinoisU.S.A.

After a first round letter, youll receive a letter saying you were one of 33 poets to be chosen for a recorded book. Again to be published, you must pay them.
