ebook4college Copyright Infringment Internet
I purchased an ebook from this company in April, it consisted of getting a scanned copy, that couldn't be copied or searched in anyway.  It quite literally looks as if they just took an hard copy and scanned it.  As a matter of fact there is a CourseSmart (a reputable text book company with whom I should have originally gone) watermarks throughout the book.  I have since found a copy, through CourseSmart and got a copy of an actual ebook that you can search and copy/paste from for papers.There is absolutely no contact information on the ebook4college web site, no process indicated for addressing any sort of issues good or bad.  The only way I was able to come up with contact information was to do a look up of their URL on an internet registrar site.I guess you get what you pay for.

Saparis Questionable Scam Censorship Allowed? Internet
I opened an account with Saparis. The admin held the money and refused to trade the account; they sent am email stating that they would not begin trading on the account unless additional money was added to the account raising it to $3,0001 The email said that the price was increased to $3,001 on January 5th 2008 - I don't see that any where on the website. I find the website to be both confusing and deceptive after receiving the email from the admin. I question if there is any intentional chicanery that was planned here. They are still holding the money, stating that it has not been lost. I think the money should be returned due to the deception and mis-communication between what is on their website and what they say in the email. Eugene Hillside, New JerseyU.S.A.

Richard La Ruina, Denouncement: Questionable Activities and Questionable Issues, London Nationwide
There are questionable issues with Richard La Ruina who is supposed to be a master pickup artist which he can be harshly and severely denounced for.  These issues are:   1.  Overwhelmingly One-Race Oriented:  This is a severe and a serious criticism of Richard La Ruina.  The women that he surrounds himself with are mainly of the same racial background that he is from i.e. the Caucasian grouping.  Therefore the applicability of his information seems to only correlate to women who belong to his own racial background i.e. Caucasian women in a major way.   2.  Assumption of Opposition to Interracial Connections:  It also appears based upon observational evidence that Richard La Ruina seems to be opposed to interracial connections for example, white women hooking up with black men.  If Richard La Ruina was never against this then this of course would indeed be showcased and of course from his very own end.   These are two questionable issues with Richard La Ruina and ones that should indeed be highlighted and indeed be taken note of since he deserves full and total denouncement for them.

Securitas Security USA questionable activities Bakersfield California
Securitas is a questionalbe company. I know back when I was working for them they a had a guard not only was she a guard but she was a supervisor and she was working for two years with a revolked guard card and that is no legal for a company as far as I know. This company needs to be looked into and they should be paying fines for having that person working for the company and training new guards when she did not even have a legal guard card. Also I have witness this company take a guard who was drawing racist act work, they just removed this guard and placed them at another post now as far as I know racism is not tolarted in companies so I do not know who that person was not fired. On top of that this company just over work guards and under pay them but I guess that is ok. The bakersfied branch manager do not even have a guard card even though he do not have to he really knows nothing about security and it shows.

Lending America POTENTAIL MORTGAGE SCAM Nationwide
Lending America is using TV ads to get bad credit customers/sub-prime mortgage holders to apply for loans I believe this to be a scam because they are pretending to report as a NEWS story about the government bailing out people from bad mortgages. They are also using terms like another Government Stimilus check and everyone who signs a loan will get another Stimilus check. If you do not pay close attention you will not hear the part that they are the ones sending out the new checks not the government. Too many good people have been burned by bad business practices and I wanted this to be an alert to anyone thinking about doing business with this organization to tread very carefully.

FICO Corporate stupidity Atlanta Georgia
To anyone who wishes to apply for a credit reporting servive , caution because boneheads are running the business. My wife and I retired about 5 years ago,sold our home in California and purchased a new home in South Carolina. A few months ago we received a letter from a bank asking questions about our mortgage application. We do not have a mortgage nor have we ever applied for one , we were the victims of attempted identity theft. After we had resolved the issue we decided to join Fair Isaac Corporation ( FICO) credit monitoring service and elected to receive information only from the largest credit rating service, Experian. On May 30th we received our first report which showed we had excellent credit with a FICO score of 798 . On the same report we noted that American Express showed that we had an account with them which was current but showed a balance owed of $2.369.00. We had cancelled our American Express Account last January and, as we do every month , paid the account balance in full so the information that Experian had was incorrect . We then filed a dispute thru Experian and within 25 days had received an E-mail that American Express had admitted an error had been made, the account was closed and nothing was owed. Enter the boneheads who grant you credit based on your credit rating. About 2 weeks after we had gotten notice that the error had been corrected( and in correcting the error our credit rating should have improved slightly )we received a credit alert from FICO that our credit rating had been lowered by 4 points !!! 15 phone calls later,to FICO and Experian , I found out why our credit rating is lower now than it was on May 30th. 1. We filed a dispute letter with Experian. 2. Experian corrects the error and notifies FICO. 3. FICO checks our credit report to make sure the error has been corrected. 4. Because FICO checked with Experian it generated a hard inquiry on our credit report, just the same as if we had applied for credit at a bank, auto dealership etc. 5. Are you ready for this- ALL HARD INQUIRIES LOWER YOUR CREDIT SCORE BECAUSE IT INDICATES YOU ARE ATTEMPTING TO APPLY FOR CREDIT. Take my advice and get your free annual report, which is not a hard inquiry and dont waste your money on any credit monitoring service or on the Fair Isaac Corporation which sets your credit score based on information they get from credit reporting agencies. I have been told that my only recourse is to file another dispute which, even when in rules in my favor, will lower my credit rating. William Travelers Rest, South CarolinaU.S.A.

Verizon Wireless Contract Fraud Internet
I had or should I say still have a contract with Verizon wireless. Over a year ago I added a line for my girlfriend and as things would have it the relationship ended and I payed an early termination fee. My original contract was up in march 2008. I contacted verizon about changing carriers and they inform me that my contract was extended until march 2009. I ask why. They or she says, when I added the additional line that my contract was automatically extended. I say that that contract was terminated and the early termination fee or fine as I like to call it was paid in full, which nullifies that contract. Apparently the contract with the additional phone is eliminated but not the extension on the original phone contract. Even though I fulfilled the original contract and paid all fees and fines on the added contract, the extension on the original contract is still in effect. If I want to terminate the original contract that has been fulfilled, they inform me it is an additional $80.00 on a contract that was fulfilled according to the original agreement. But if I want to renew my original contract for 2 more years they will wave the extension that they placed on the original contract. I advised them that they should be more clear in the extending of the original contract before customers add additional lines to their plans. I am guessing that they won't because as statistics most likely would state that men or women who add boyfriends and girlfriends to their plan pay an early termination FINE. And they have the original extended to the new contract. No one in their right mind would extend their contract to 2 more years with just a few months to go on the original contract. Verizon says that it is not being deceptive in their extensions because they mail you the additional information on said contract. I said, Oh you mean the fine print that no one reads. She said exactly. Danielm Altoona, PennsylvaniaU.S.A.

Let's Unfair Practice, Theft Internet
I purchased a phone through this company in December,2007. At the time of placing my order, I expressed an interest in keeping my existing number. I was told once the phone has been activated, to call back and they would port my number over. I received an email from one of their supervisors with instructions as to what to do to keep my existing number. 6 months later (August, 2008). I checked my bank account to see that had debited my account for $250.00 without my authorization. I placed a call to see where this came from and I was told it was because I did not keep the number they originally gave me. According to them, this is considered a deactivation; they charge $250.00 for deactivating your phone. Well, going back to the email I received from their supervisor, there weren't any warnings about this fee nor was this disclosed to me during the time I placed my order. As a result, my bank account is at a negative. I have gotten the run around in trying to receive corporate contact information. I have spoken with several customer service managers and they are sticking to their guns with this one. Well so am I. I feel this is unfair practice as well as theft. I did not authorize this debit. Furthermore, if I knew I would be charged $250.00 later on down the line for porting my number over I would have kept the one they gave me. I will be filing a report with the BBB Online and the Federal Trade Commission. TB Mableton, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Dunesport Buyer Beware, Mesa, Arizona
Dunesport is a ficticious name (dba) and the company does not exist.  I ordered a 20' trailer in May 2010 and it was delivered 2000 miles away in Oct 2010 with a 1-yr manufacturer warranty.  The driver unhooked it in a parking lot when I arrived and left.  I got electrocuted three times when touching the body and one window would not open which had to be replaced.  Dunesport took care of both before I would complete the deal! Ten months later a water leak was detected in the front hull that had unknowingly caused $6,000 damage to the flooring.  Seems the hull never was calked and sealed before delivery.  I had it fixed locally and applied for relief under the manufacturer's warranty on 10/11 and after being promised full financial relief, Dunesport as I knew it went bankrupt 4/12. A new owner has now purchased the rights to the Dunesport name, but disavows any obligation of the past owner.  The manufacturer in CA has no assets and is also on the bring of bankruptcy. Deal only with the REAL owner, if at all, not with the Dunesport name.

I believe does hold a bachelors degree. However, it is not what he claims. He has never obtained a masters degree or PhD. This constitutes fraud.

Dermitage dirty marketing tactics Ontario, California
I found an article online for Dermitage skin care products and saw that they offered a free trial. Stating that I ONLY need to pay for shipping and handling and that if I was not satisfied with the product I need only to return it. So I placed an order and was charged 5.95. However, when I received my package the invoice stated I had only 14 days to try their product and would then be charged 89.95. Well needless to say I was quite startled as I had received prior information about the fee. I double checked the website from which I ordered from and saw NO information, even in fine print that I would be charged anything but 5.95. I figured I try the product, did, was not impressed and quickly called the 1-800 number to receive a RMA number to return the product. The lady was nice enough and offered me a reduced price of 39.95. I said no and was told I would be emailed my RMA number and had 30 days to return the product. I returned the product, at my own expense and was not charged the 89.95. I just want to warn people out there what this company is doing. I do not think it is a very fair business practice at all! I was one of the lucky ones not to find an extra charge on my credit card but was still disappointed that a company would do business this way.

HM Government AV Referendum Scam London, Nationwide
May 5th is the first time the UK has ever had a referendum on a proportional voting system however the proposed system is NOT proportional as stated by the BBC (1) and the no campaigners (3). The major factions of both leading UK parties oppose proportional voting because it risks damaging the political monopoly. All three parties are breaking their manifesto commitments regarding the referendum. The AV system was selected because it is such a flawed and unpopular system that many supporters of proportional voting may indeed vote against it.  Despite near universal unpopularity of the current system a no vote is predicted to win on May 5th and this will be used in future to disregard future proposed changes to the system. The front page of the NO campaign insults the electorate by stating: you can't constantly ask people. Referendums have a fairly definitive feel to them...I wouldn't be expecting another one. These are the people who proposed it. This is undemocratic in the extreme.
