EBoost Media scam? Internet
I have to agree with the Klowe86- We here at Northwest Roof Management had/have the same experience- We did talk to them about this last week (6/08) and they told us that we are on the top- when we looked together with the rep it wasn't our company it was another Roofing company. We have disputed this with our CC. and we have talked with EBoost- I don't mind paying for service IF I GOT IT!! If you signed a contract with us and we took your money and never showed up at your site- would you sit still and be satisfied? Well neither am I with Eboost! What happened to customer service? Dated 5/12/08 @ 9:35am Thank you for this opportunity to be of service. Eboost Media will place your company on the top pages of Yahoo and Google along with about 50 other affiliated serch engines. This agreement is exclusive to three complnies in your are and offers a non-congtractual guarantee. It's the fastest and least expensive way to get your business exposed. It's also a securedc position, you'll never fall from being on top3. It only takes us 10-14 business days to get you listed. If you do decide to cancel we require a notice after the first 30 days. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or if I can be of additional assistance. Sincerely, Phil Sanchez Csauter Auburn, WashingtonU.S.A.

Consolidated Media Services Magazine Rip-offs
on May 25, 2001 I received a telephone call at my place of employment from as the other lady put it a rapidly speaking individual. I was told by this person that I was a runner up in a contest to win a free trip. He gave me a big speach on his company and the word free came out of this persons mouth about every fifth word. I to felt like I would have a free trial. Within one hour my credit card was charged in the amount of $58.23. I was told by the person that I spoke with that I would receive a packet in the mail that would include the list of thousand of magazine they offer and I could change the magazines any time i wanted. I was also told I would receive a free watch...I am sure it was worth about $5.00. Well I never received these I receive Magazines I do not read and I am sure they can not sell in the stores, because people wouldn't pay money to read them. After not receiveing the information I was told I would...I canceled my credit card so they could not charge me again. On the 25th of June 2001 I receive a call at my Place of employment from a young lady wanted new credit card information. I informed the young lady that I wanted the account canceled and I would not send any money. I told her I did not receive the informatiom I was to get. She told me she did not know what I was talking about....that the company did not send out packets such as I was told. In the past months I have recieved calls everyday at work and home. Even after telling them not to call my work they will call 2 to 3 times a day. I spoke with one man on Saterday October 6, 2001. Also told him I wanted the account canceled...explained to him everything. He said they do have packets. When I told him I never received mine and I was not paying for the service....I was told that what the young lady told me had nothing to do with my account and I would have to pay. I was past my 10 day period to cancele What I find so funny is the fact that I have complained to at least 3 people about not getting the papers to change my magazines I receive....not one of them have sent them to me. Only bills...any good respectable company would of sent them out right away trying to keep your buisness!!!!!!!!! Now I receive in the mail a letter stating that I can either pay $640.64 to keep the magazines that I DO NOT READ coming or to cancele the account I could pay $384.38! That Is a lot of money for 4 months of magazine that I DO NOT and WILL NOT read!!!!!!

Rokk Media Avoid at all costs Exeter Exeter
Rokk Media built a website for my company a few years ago and it was a disaster. They were a nightmare from start to finish. It took them months more than promised, it went over budget and it was a terrible product which was not fit for purpose. Very charming but totally useless and do not deliver what they promise.

Orcs Media Charged! Internet
I was looking for puzzle books on line and came across a website that said it was free but I had to register. It asked for a credit card for future purchases but that I would not be charged for anything today. At the end of the registration I was informed that it was a 5 day trial. When I hit the terms a blank box opened. I called to cancel right away and discovered I had been charged for a donation to UNICEF. I was told everything would be cancelled and I would get a refund. I never clicked on anything saying I agreed to pay for anything.

Honeybee Media IBT, Nadine Media ripoff fraudulent Montreal Canada
Honeybee Media (with all of its million different names) is a huge rip-off. They called me with my information and asked me if I was happy with their services. I told them I didn't subscribe to a company with that name. They read me off a list of magazines that I had currently been getting from a different company. They offered me a gift package (a watch) that the other company offered me as well (and OF COURSE never received)and so I thought I was renewing but I called my other magazine company and they infact told me that it wasn't them how called me. So I have been stuck with trying to get rid of this horrible company, that doesn't even send me any magazines. This isnt even the worst. They got my credit card number and have been taking out money (lot of it) without my permission. I have just now been able to fix this problem. Brandon Newport News, VirginiaU.S.A.

Media Outsourcing, Consolidated Media Services ripoff Atlanta Georgia
Well I am in the same boat as everybody else. I was in college when CMS called me telling me that I won a sweepstakes. I couldn't remember at the time which sweepstakes that I won since I use to always enter myself in contest at the mall. (Which I have changed my habit since this event.) Well I was contacted by an agent telling me that I won a prize and that I would received a free watch , which I never received. And that for a low price I could order up to 5 magazines for 5 years. I told them that I was a college student and I couldn't afford any magazine, well the guy told me that I could make payments, which I thought ok I will give this a try. Well a few months later I received calls telling me that I owe money for the magazines that I bought. I told them that right now I could not afford it and to cancelled my subscription, which they told me that I could not cancel because I made an oral agreement for more that $500.00. Well I could not pay them at the time until my classes started up in the fall which by then they put me in collection. Well long story short I paid them off last year and now since then I have moved to another location and since I have paid for the magazines I wanted them to foward the magazines to my new address, which I called CMS to tell them my new address. I called them to give them my new address. Well they haven't sent any magazines and some of my magazines that I had order from them have been cancelled. Which I thought that I had an agreement for 5 years. I have tried calling them but they seem to not pick up there phone. So I have turned here because I just found out that other people was pressure and tricked just like me. Danielle No. Hollywood, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Dinette - DenetteE-Boost Media - EBoost Media rip off Muretta California
When I told Dinette that E-Boost Media had no contract and that I had already disputed the charges with my credit card company, she appeared to care less and was confident that they would get their money. Did I mention E Boost Media is bunch of scum sucking Rip-off artists? E-Boost Media is the worst kind of rip-off artists. They make false promises and give no written contract or guarantee their work in writing. DO NOT HIRE THEM YOU WILL GET HOSED! (That is their business) THEY WILL NOT GET YOU TO THE TOP OF THE SEARCH ENGINES USING ORGANIC SEARCH OPTIMIZATION LIKE I WAS PROMISED, THEY DO NOT USE THAT METHOD OF SUBMISSION. They signed me up on July 9, 2008 and said that they would have me up and running within 7-10 days with a custom video for the Real Estate industry. However, they did not start work on properly collecting my search words until July 30th. I had left E-Boost Media several voice messages in late August that I was not happy with their service and that I wanted to stop paying them. Well, no calls were returned, and when I finally got a hold of Dinette (if that is her real name) on September 9, I told her I was unhappy and I asked to see where my listing was on the Internet. It turns out that they had placed a E-Boost Media video clip attached to my listing, not a 'real estate' video clip as I was promised. To make matters worse, to see the clip I had to do a Yahoo search and click on Maps to show up at all. WHAT A RIP-OFF! September 9, 2008; I was promised an additional 10 days without billing to make up for the first 21 days that they did nothing, after which I was hurried off the phone. On September 12, I called to end the service and was offered 16 days of no billing, and a reduction of monthly fees to $79.00 down from $159.00. Did I take it? Hell NO! E Boost Media is a bunch of LYING Rip-Off Artists! Today on September 22, I received a bill by email from for $159.00. When I called e-Boost to complain I was told that bill was for charges on September 9,. When I asked about the 10 days of compensation that I was promised on September 9, I was told by Dinette that she had no record of that conversation. Imagine that! When I told Dinette that E-Boost Media had no contract and that I had already disputed the charges with my credit card company, she appeared to care less and was confident that they would get their money.

Web Wise Media Web Wise Media, Inna Shapiro CEO Web Wise Media Very Bad Experience Internet
I am the owner of a new marketing company.  My goal was to search for vendors that could help me provide marketing services to my clients that we could not provide in house.  As we searched for a company to help us with this we came across Web Wise Media (Owner Inna Shapiro).  All looked good from the start as we worked with Dan Martin one of their Email Marketing Executives.  We were presented a package that we would in turn offer to our clients.  The package offered was very attractive A guaranteed amount of opened emails.  This seemed a very good offer to our company and we felt it would be a huge value to our clients as this would take away the frustration of having to send out millions of emails and be charged for sent emails.  Instead we were told we would pay for only opened emails.  We were provided a tracking software to view real time reports and we noticed that the order of opened emails was fulfilled and several hundred visitors went to our clients shopping cart as a result.  Our client however did not receive one single order.  Being in marketing myself I understand that there are no guarantees on marketing campaigns.  It has been my experience that when a campaign goes bad there are still some signs of life this however was flat line completely. I was fortunate enough to be able to speak to the woman behind the curtain CEO Inna Shapiro who was very defensive from the first.  I asked her for proof that the emails were sent out and she deferred to the tracking software we were given and a snap shot of 5 email address's from the supposed email file that was used.  Not very convincing proof.  I asked for a refund and was told no way.  Inna mentioned that she was very upset that their name was being defamed on ripoff report and I told her that I could care less about their precious reputation as we were dragged through the mud with them by our client. I am not stating that we were ripped off by Web Wise Media as I have no definitive proof I am simply telling you what our experience was with this company and the CEO Inna Shapiro. This is not intended as retaliatory on our part we simply want to warn any other young companies starting out to be careful who they get involved with it could cost them their name which is worth everything in this business!!

Consolidated Media Services rip-off Atlanta Georgia
This company somehow got a hold of me at work and would not take no for an answer. When I said I would think about it, it seems as if they went ahead and signed me up for the service, even though I didn't want it. Now they have other companies calling me to try to get me to enlist in their services. It is rather annoying, especially considering they call me at my work place. After being tricked into this service, there is no way to cancel is until a year. It's ridiculous. I don't have the money to waste on magazines I have no interest in, nor do I read. It's a waste and I would love them to get charged and want a refund. On top of their constant harassing, they send me my notices to pay them past the due date which then leads them to send another notice to explain they will send me to a collection agency if my bills are not paid. I have only paid two bills but I can't afford it and I want action now! Carrie North Hollywood, CaliforniaU.S.A.

DAG Media Abusive Representatives Brooklyn New York
I work for a carpet cleaning company in Brooklyn, NY. Since I started working here in April 1997 DAG Media has been harassing me and all of my fellow employees. They contact you and say I was recommended to you about carpet cleaning In the beginning I was a bit naive, I didn't know what DAG Media was all about until someone else from another carpet company told me, she told me they say they are a referral service and can generate business for me with potential clients, I replied by telling the representative that I do not need another clients, she then said so you are not in the business to make money I was shocked and speechless. I then asked her not to contact me again. For the next 2 years they contacted me at LEAST twice a week. I finally got fed up when someone called and I said I have asked you on several occasions not to contact me, why are you still contacting me her answer was....because I can. I then said to myself that I need to do something about this. I contacted DAG Media and spoke to a girl that would not connect me to anyone and hung up on me. I then contacted Dag Media the next day, I finally spoke to someone, after I explained my entire story he said so you don't want more clients, I was so shocked that I just hung up. A week later I found a fax number located in Manhattan and faxed a letter to them stating if the phone calls do not stop I would call the BBB, Consumer Affairs, Rip-Off Report and the police (this was just last month) someone called me back (spoke hardly any English) and stated if I faxed any other letters they would come to my office. I am in preparation of legal action with DAG Media. I now find out that Dag Media has illegal immigrants working for them. PLEASE, WHATEVER YOU DO NOT DEAL WITH....DAG MEDIA AND THE JEWISH YELLOW.

Consolidated Media Services (CMS) ripoff Atlanta Georgia
My husband and I were contacted by a man from CMS who stated that we would receive some magazines of our choice for a one time fee of $34.99 (or pretty close to that amount). The man also said that we would receive a free watch. The magazines started to arrive and we noticed the charge on our credit card. Then the charges occurred 2 more times. I called the company and said that we were told that we would only be charged the one time fee - and they said that is not what they told us. They said that they told us that we would be charged approx. $34.99 a month for a year! That totals over $400.00 for MAGAZINES which we would have NEVER purchased if they would have told us that!! I told CMS that we would not have agreed to this and they said that they have the conversation of the agreement on tape. I asked to speak to a supervisor but none was available. The kid from CMS who I was talking to explained to me that there was NO WAY to cancel the magazines - except to file for bankruptcy or die. I told the kid that we did not anticipate doing EITHER ONE and that we would be cancelling our credit cards asap - which we did (hassle hassle). We asked to hear the tape of the conversation and they said that they would arrange a time to do that with us - but it never happened. Now CMS continues to send us notices through the mail and the balance is growing. They are threatening to send us to a collection agency and the telephone number on their notices conveniently happens to Not be In Service (which my husband and I find quite amusing - when trying to find the humor in this difficult situation). We have contacted ALL of the magazine companies and some will cancel - some say that we need to cancel through CMS. CMS sends us magazines that we would NEVER read in a million years and that we never ordered. We will NOT pay them a dime and the second they send us to a collection agency (if they can) and if it should go on our credit report - we will obtain legal counsil against them. We never signed anything in writing and therefore should not be liable for sending them a penney. We have written CMS directly to let them know they can quit sending us these magazines and to inform them that their telephone number is not in service (just in case they don't know). We are anticipating receiving our letter back - undeliverable or box closed. Denni Anchorage, Alaska
