BIDRACK On-line Auction, Internet
While on the Huffington News website this morning I read what I thought was a news report about this great company BIDRACK  The reporter went on to say how she had tested and found the site above the board and actually had great results with two auctions she used to test the companies system. Impressed with the depth and clarity of the article @ (so I thought at the time) I proceeded to BIDRACK's web site to check it out. Once on their site you are more or less pushed into their registration process if you want any details.  While in the registration process they ask you for your credit card information and shipping address before you have a chance to view any of their polices or see what the true cost of bidding really is.   BTW way you can't put a phony CC number in as they immediately verify the card before letting you proceed. Base on what I thought was a legitimate report by a TV reporter I entered my CC information and shipping address. I was then confronted with a pop-up screen with various Bid Packages for my consideration.  I closed the window without selecting a package figuring I would get back to them later after seeing what this was all about, my mistake! What happened is they charged my card for $60.00 for 100 bids.  I would have not known that except I saw on my account page I had 100 bids.   When I emailed them with a questions as to how this happened and requested, no demanded a refund this is the response I got. ----- Reply message ----- From: bidrack Customer Care <> Date: Wed, Jun 8, 2011 12:08 pm Subject: [#314244] Forgot Password To: Wayne Howarth <> -- Do not edit below this line -- Wayne Howarth, A customer support staff member has replied to your support request, #314244 with the following response: Dear Wayne, We thank you for reaching out to us here at Bidrack! We are very sorry that you did not wish to be charged and we apologize deeply for the inconvenience this may have caused.  Unfortunately, due to our policies as stated in the terms and conditions you agreed to, I cannot give you a refund. Regards, Customer Care Bidrack - The Fun way to Save! Never was I presented with their policies for review and after closer review of the news article determined it was actually an ad they had placed a made it look like a separate website and all.  They have gone to a great deal of trouble to disguise this site as a  webpage of a TV Channel 9 news report about how great they are.  It worked as I am very leery of these types of things but was set at easy with report from the news person on their personal experience with the services of BIDRACK. If you are thinking about this service RUN the other way fast they are a scam and a rip-off.  I will dispute the charges on my Credit Card and hope they don't sell the information.

Speeddate started out badly, from what I had seen as a free member...then quickly slid to below the bottom of barrel!Of all the many men I chatted with, amongst the paying members were dozens of men who were quite distraught over charges to their credit cards that they did not authorize.In the hundreds.I used to constantly warn, and often still do, men after noticing this trend.I still have a profile there ONLY since about 8 weeks ago, when I posted new photos...and after that was NOT allowed to access my profile to change anything@!!  Even to DELETE anything.  My mug shots and narratives are forever more on that site! They surely do this to fatten up their 'member list' to make themselves seem a more valuable company than they are.Truthfully, they took a good method of meeting people that would have had great potential, and quickly have turned it into a real scam.I could go on and on...but this site should have someone to answer to for their actions.  I've not been scammed by money, but I want my profile OFF THE SITE.Either they do, or I and others will continue going on line only to warn paying members to keep a close eye on their credit card accounts to see what happens in order to stop them.

PRO FOOT AND CALF MASSAGER / Item # 651455I ordered a foot massager via the internet and paid with PyaPal. They charged me two times ($654). After four emails and PayPals help, I received $327 back in my account. Three weeks later, I am still asking when will the item be delivered. After five emails, the item has been canceled by and I will have to order it again. BUT !!! I still do not have my $327 back from them and the foot massager has gone up $100 All this time I thought I was talking to CUSTOMER SERVICE ! I was under the impression that customer service department was to help you and not fan the flames. Brookstone Customer Service employees are to simply push generic reply buttons and not even try to help with a problem. This is by far the most frustrating and worst online experience I have ever had.

DACfix WHAT A RIP!! Dallas, Texas
I paid 189.00 for DACfix to dispute information that a company had put on my DAC report. I waited six weeks for it to be disputed, they called me and told me that the company had removed items on the DAC and they sent me a corrected copy. Today I recieved a letter stating that the company I had worked for had not responded originally within the time limits of the law but now they have responded and that they have put those items on my DAC report. How can that be? I had been sent a corrected copy without the items and had been told the company had removed those. I think I should get my 189.00 refunded and called and spoke to DACfix about this. They said that they dont give refunds. They deny telling me that they had contacted the company I had worked for. So why was I sent a corrected copy of the report?  And if the letter I recieved today is true, then why is it that the company I had worked for did not respond originally to DACfix within the time limits of the law but they have been allowed to show those items now. Not only that but the last day of my employment with the company the safety manager told me that he only considered 1 item preventable but then they put others on there and thats why I disputed it. If I had known that DACfix wasn't going to do anything for me, I would not have paid them. All this messes up my life, I am going to have to make a career change. I WANT A REFUND!!!!!!

This company is a scam.  You order a watch from their website.  They send you a completely different watch, then they refuse to take the watch back.  They offer you a credit that is a fraction of what you paid and tell you to keep the watch that they sent.  When you offer to send the watch back, they say it is too difficult with their customs.  I believe this is an INTENTIONAL SCAM WEBSITE OPERATION.  BEWARE!  Do not buy from this company.  I believe they go under other names as well.

Qresolve Pushy salesmen, deceptive practices Internet
    I purchased a directory cleaner called Speedy PC Pro.  I was then sent to a screen that said I had to activate my new software by calling 1-855-838-9715.  The problem is that I was not calling Speedy PC Pro.  The number was for a company called Qresolve.  I was immediately told that my computer had many error notices in the event log.  They showed me a long list of problems.  I should have realized that the list came from a problem that Microsoft was working on but had still not resolved.  In fact, Microsoft is scheduled to call me today to continue to work on the problem.    The person at Qresolve insisted that I had viruses and that he could fix the computer by doing extensive work on it.  He pushed me to buy the service.  One year was $199.99, but for a discounted price he would give me a two year service contract for $287.96, which I paid.  The tech started to run Malbytes software, a program that I already had on my computer.  Then the tech said that since my other computer was on the same internet network that it was also infected.  He pressured me to buy another 2 year contract for the second computer.  What really caught my attention was the insistence on pushing for more purchases.  The second thing that raised a red flag was that in order to cover both computers,  I had to pay the entire amount for both computers, despite the fact that I had just paid the $287.96.  In other words, I could not just pay the difference.  I had to pay the full amount for both computers and that the first amount that I paid,  $287.96,  would be refunded within 5 business days.  The idea of paying twice made me very leary.  I had no way of knowing if the first payment would really be refunded. I cancelled the service, but not without getting another pushy salesperson to argue about why I should keep the program.    Another red flag was that when I explained to the tech that the microsoft problem had to do with a microsoft  backup program that was not working, the tech said that Qresolve did not work on hardware problems. That seemed very strange since their website claimed that it worked on all kinds of computer related equipment such as iphones, pads, etc.    The whole experience left me very uneasy and I cancelled the contract this morning.  They said my refund will be credited within 5 business days, which also makes me uneasy.  I am waiting to see if I really get my money back. Stay tuned to the next report.     One last item...I ran the same software, Malbytes, on the second computer, the one that they said had to be infected since it ran on the same internet network.  It turned out that the second computer did NOT have any viruses.  I would have paid the additional amount for nothing, and they were extremely pushy about how necessary it was to protect the second computer.

Ontel Products Poor business practices Internet
I placed an order for Slushy Magic on the company's website. After hitting the no button for several additional offers as well as opting out of third party offers, i confirmed my order and received an automatically generated receipt. I was surprised to look at the receipt and see that I was charged $20 more Than i had authorized. I aw charged for a larger sized product that I had never even seen. I immediately called and was told that there was no record yet of my order and that I should wait a few days and call back. I did just that and, unfortunately, had the same result. After requesting to speak to a supervisor, my information was taken so that management could investigate the situation nd correct things. Several more days passed without a call. With no charge yet on my credit card, I hoped that my order had slipped through the cracks of their disorganization. Finally, I received a call last night, from an operator confirming my order. My immediate rethought was that his call was in response to those I had made previously. I quickly discovered that this was a third party who had been provided my unauthorized personal information by Ontel. Figuring that my order was now appearing in their system, I made another call to Ontel customer service. They proceeded to tell me that my order had already been shipped and the best they could do was credit me $7. I was over charged $20! Plus, my personal information was dispensed all over the place without my authorization. Finally, I was told hat as long as I do not open the box I can refuse delivery on the product and they will credit me the full amount. Not holding my breath.

Amazon Amazon happily profiting from con-men Internet
The book business is changing. You can now publish and sell your own book through Amazon. What a great idea, no distribution costs, and a greater profit on your book. But the potential of Amazon to develop desk top publishing is being destroyed by their greed.. You can publish and sell your own book through Amazon but you cannot control the con men who take it over. So my book: An Advanced Academic Reader, teaching academic reading comprehension, which markets at $34.95 has been taken over by con men under the name of any_book who are selling it at at $235.62. How could Amazon allow anything so ridiculous to happen. Well the answer is they simply don't care because they make more money. Nor am I the only person having this problem with this particular firm that appears to be run by Russians. But Amazon merely claim they have no control over what a third party does on their site. Well if that ain't the biggest BS one could hear. They set the rules and if they didn't allow this to happen then it wouldn't. And if they don't control what goes on their site then who does? The Lord above? Perhaps, you're just as likely to get a reply from him as you are from Amazon on this subject. So if there is anyone out there who wants to do something about this and knows how, I'm more than willing to join you. And if there is anyone out there who wants to start a serious desk top publishing industry -- one with integrity -- let me know and I'll leave Amazon in a flash.

Now, when I contacted Dwolla about the transaction, they immediately took steps to stop the transfer and did a great job in that respect. But the ability to hack into non-subscriber accounts is a security flaw.

10:58 AM SCAM OPERATION Atlanta, Georgia
Company advertises via internet they will sell your watch for you for a 21% comission.  Absolutely fantastic service up-front when you inquire about their program.  Sent a Rolex that they listed for $2399.00.  First day after posting, got a note from them that they had a $1500.00 offer on my watch.  Accepted offer.  Got an e-mail saying payment would be made in approx. two weeks.  After waiting two weeks and hearing nothing, tried to e-mail, but e-mails rejected error of someking.  Tried their Chat session with no response after 15 minutes.  Called original number we used to begin the overall transaction, but no one responds. Based upon what we're now learning, it would appear this operation is a huge scam.  Going to file a complaint with the Georgia State's Attorney Generals office.  Since this operation is probably still in operation, I assume State has done nothing with compaints from other people who have been taken like me. If anyone has any other insights, psl. let me hear from you.  Thanks.

emusic monthly rip-off, Internet
Although it is covered in their sign-up contract, so it may not be considered specifically illegitimate, is ripping people off by charging their cards monthly and then not allowing them to keep the money in their account. I have had an account for the past year that charges me $6.95 per month. I have had time to login, search for and download music 3 or 4 times. Every single month the $6.95 that I paid disappears and is charged again without warning. I have lost approximately $50 which would have bought me an awful lot of music. I am a very busy person and it is hard for me to remember to login once a month to do a search for music. But why then, do I have to lose my money? Is there some reason I can't be warned a couple days before my account is cleared? Is there some reason the account HAS to be cleared once a month? I'm just a little pissed off realizing now that I could have gone to iTunes and gotten $50 worth of music with the money I lost. At this point I would say it's cheaper for me to just go onto iTunes when I feel like it and buy what I want. also doesn't have a great selection unless you only like undiscovered talent.

EPS Outrageous Parking penalties Atlanta, Georgia
On Mon July 30, I parked at 207 P'tree at 10.06am to go to a meeting at SCORE in P'Tree Center, to get advice about my resum. When I went to pay for 2 hrs parking, an attendant helped me, exchanging a $5 bill for me to pay into the machine. My meeting ran over by 12 min, & when I returned to the lot it was 12.20pm - 14 min late & my car had 2 wheel clamps on it. I explained to another attendant (Employee # 119) that my meeting had run late & I would be happy to pay a late fee. In addition, I told the gentleman that I have been unemployed for 7 months. The only funds I had on me were my daughter's Daycare fees. The employee was polite, but firm, & I had to pay $75 to retrieve my vehicle. In essence I had to pay $80 for 2 hours and 14 minutes of parking I am more than willing to pay a late fee, which should be in line with what I paid for 2 hours parking, which was $5. This is a disgusting business practice -it's a HUGE rip-off. I've called EPS twice (on July 30 & 31), & sent a complaint on their website, but I've had no response as yet
