The first thing I did was looked at the check,which I knew was fake. I used to be a Loss Prevention Officer,so I can tell the difference.

Cigirex smokeless cigarette, Internet
Cigirex is a scam to get your credit card, then keep charging you. I purchased their starter pack for $20 shipping and handling, they kept charging me $7.99 per month for refills, they charged my card 3 times before i got my first refill pack.  When it showed up in the mail(From the UK) i tried to contact them several times, good luck getting a real person on the phone. each time i was assured that I would not not be charged again, then the next month there was the charge... I had to cancel my card to get it to stop.  Again dont give these crooks your credit card!

I was looking for Dreamweaver 8 and I found They were selling the program for $59.95. I filled out the order form, made my payment and I was directed to the download link. Once there, I was able to download the program with no problem. To their credit, they did specify at the bottom that a serial number for the program would be emailed within 12 hours or less. After 24 hours, I hadn't received any emails. I emailed the company (or individual) and got no response. Then, I went to paypal for help and all they could do was email Apparently, they (or he) did respond to paypal. Their response was Check your email. After that, I continued to email them letting them know that I have not received it, but no one ever replied. After 14 emails to the company, I finally came to the conclusion that I was not going to be getting a serial number to open Dreamweaver 8. I've been buying online for years and never got scammed until now. I guess it had to happen sooner or Stay away from There is no doubt in my mind that the site was set up for the sole purpose of ripping off American consumers. By the way, they have other sites that are similar looking and work in the same manner, so becareful!! Mark Los Angeles, CaliforniaU.S.A.

I responded to an add in the paper for movie extra's for my son. I was asked for $19.95 right then. Then I would be able to log onto the site and create an online portfolio, next he would be called for work the next day. I was never able to log on using the login and password we were given.

I recieved an email from this company stating I was on their list as a potential sexule predator. They wanted 100 dollors to remove my name.  I am not a predator or have ever been investigted as one.  If this was a legitamant site they would not remove a name for money. They have posted my picture and email address on their site. I sent an email to the their legal dept. and have not got a responce. I believe they are using dating sites and Craigslist to fish for names. If anyone is starting a lawsuit against them I will gladly take part in it.

I was recently sent an email from telling me that I had been entered into their system as a predator. I thought ok this weird, I clicked on the link and there was a picture of my google plus profile picture and my name. I do not use this email address for anything except school, work and online purchases. It tells me that if you would like to take your name down, you can pay $100 dollars and to have your name removed. Obviously this site is bogus, what site would let you take your name down if you were in fact a predator? If anyone knows what to do in this situation it would be much appreciated if you could help me out.

newdesignershoesoutlet The biggest RIPOFF China Internet
I was surfing the web for swaroski figurines at a lower cost than sold by swaroski.  To my surprise, I found this website listed had swaroski items at a fraction of the cost.  It's true, if it's too good to be true, it probably is.   I ordered the Swaroski Blue Jays, they run around $1700.00 retail.  This company was selling them for  $195.00.  The package came from China very poorly packed.  When I opened it, it smelled.  The declared value was $6.00, based on the import document.  I opened it and they sent me Parrots and not even close to Swaroski standards, they wre chips and most of the crystal has fallen off in the box.  I contacted them and after several e-mails the agreed to credit my card for the amount paid.  I had to send them pictures. Please don't be fooled by the pictures on their website, you are not going to receive what you think you ordered.  Buy from a reputable seller.I have sent several e-mails to designers that this company is claiming to have the real deal. Please Do Not Buy From This Company,  it's Fake!!

EVOW Scam profiles Nationwide Internet
In the past few weeks the dating site EVOW has been over run with fake profiles from men that all claim the military as their occupation. They are either widowed, disabled but all claim to have kids. The age range seems to be from mid 40's to mid 50's. Every greeting starts out using the rude moniker of babe, they are all looking for their soulmate and are in a rush to get personal information like phone numbers and'or email addresses. The replies also all say I will like to know you better and distance doesn't matter when they are in love. Based on the communications I have had it seems that more than one person is answering responses. I have played along on the website and when I ask where they are originally from because English isn't their original language, they get defensive or verbally abusive or any other means they think will keep me in line and playing along. Even trying to become endearing as if every single female is desperate to find a true love even though we have never met. I reported every profile that contacted me in that manner to EVOW personally and never recieved any acknowledgement from the site admins at all. I know that as far as the site is concerned, none of the men tried to scam anything from me where it can be seen but the sheer number of these profiles should warrant a serach of the IP addresses or some other basic reaction. Maybe EVOW is the base of operations for the scammers, I do not know but that would explain why they do not have an inerest in ackinowledging my complaints in any form at all. I know these profiles are scams because a few years back I was contacted on another date site in exactly the same manner with the same wording and once I communicated off of the site I was asked to send electronics overseas to a military guy who can't imagine never communicating with me again and would repay me when he was released'.  LOL   So stay away from

EmeraldLUX - e-cigarettes E cigarette scam Internet
In reading all the other comments by people, it is obvious what a scam this is.   Shame on Walmart for allowing a scam through their website survey.  Hard lesson learned. My wife and I contacted Christina at 888-412-6086 3/11/15 at approximately 9:15 a.m. Her script was so rehearsed. No doubt she goes through this all day long because of the scam.  She claimed she had no supervisor and didn't know any corporate address. She said they have no company address.        Flags to everyone !!! My wife works in a legal department and in court gives exceptions.  We explained that the doctor said I cannot use the product and that meant nothing. Someone needs to address this.Think of the frustration of the people who took the time to complain like we are doing. Think of all the people who are not brave enough to express how they feel and how they got ripped off. Think of the people who overdrafted on their card because we all live paycheck to paycheck. This was free.     Any time anyone asks you for a credit or debit card for shipping be leary..... Christina did say that on the website: that there is a place to file a complaint.  I am asking that everyone who reads this file a complaint. And let us not forget the better business bureau. File a complaint.  How many people did they scam out of $114.95?   How many people will chalk it up to a bad experience and tell everyone they know not to buy the product?    And in social media, how many will share their story?   It's up to us to fight this scam.Good luck to everyone, and as Christina said..............shame on you for not reading the fine print.
