Complaint Review: Online-sweepstakes.com, Siteowner: Brent Riley - Fort Myers Florida
Online-sweepstakes.com, Siteowner: Brent Riley Online-sweepstakes.com, OLS , Siteowner: Brent Riley Take Peoples Money Without Providing The Services Fort Myers Florida
Okay , Where to begin here . I guess I should start off with a brief summary of myself , and my relationship/history with OLS ( Online-Sweepstakes.com) . I had been a member there at OLS since 2002 . 16 LONG YEARS !! So you'll be hard pressed to find many folks that have been there longer than I was . My Screen name was LilDevil , and again , I had been a paying member since May 2002 .
Over the years I have witnessed discrimination and bias from the moderators there . What does that mean ? Well , let me tell you if you disagreed with a moderators stance say...Oh on politics , sex , or anything else , than you had a good chance of having your comments being deleted , or being banned all together . I have seen NUMEROUS members being ...SILENCED ...In this fashion .
The moderators there have their favorites and the favoritism runs strong . Rules are posted for all but some may do , and speak as they like . Another words , DO AS I SAY ,NOT AS I DO !!!
If you ignore the bias there , The site itself was pretty good in the beginning .And I have to say it USED TO BE THE BEST out there . But sadly most of the power hungry moderators , and the slacker of an owner ( BRENT RILEY ) have let it slip into mediocrity .
So for years , I pretty much kept to myself . I mean lets be honest , I was there to enter sweepstakes , and not hold long meaningful relationships with the other members . But on occassion , I would respond to posts/threads just like the other members . I was attacked once for my beliefs , and after defending myself I was banned for about 2 weeks ( Don't remember ) for arguing back against a moderator there . HOW DARE I DEFEND MYSELF !!!
After that was well aware that reasonable didn't apply there . And when I reached out to Brent ?? Not a peep . Basically the Moderators can do and say ,AND TREAT his paying customers anyway they so please , and he could care less .
So , I basically kept tomyself ever since that day.
Fast forward now to about 3 months ago . I had posted the words " I Won " under one of the sweepstakes listings . It did NOT have a winners folder in it (Members will know what that means) so why would there be a problem right ? Anyways , Anytime I would make a post it magically got deleted.
So I wrote..." Why are my posts being deleted "..It too was deleted with no response...Yeah , no bias or mistreatment there.
Now ,September 3rd 2018 . I had just got back from traveling abroad . My OLS subscription needed to be renewed . I go make a payment by paypal as I always had . Everything went thru on the paypal side . But back at OLS I see that my membership isn't showing as being paid ( GREEN) . It was then I see many posts/threads of other members having the exact same problem of having paid their money , but not getting the membership .
Numerous posts by numerous members, some not happy whatsover since this has been going on continuously since July 2018 .I had no idea .
I posted a request , and sent 2 personal messages to " NICOLE " ( The supposed fixer of these problems) and I was then banned .
Again with the biased treatment huh ?
Okay , So you took my money , failed to give me what I purchased , Then BAN ME FOR ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT MY MONEY !?!?!?
Yeah , Makes sense to me too.
Mistakes happen folks , I make them myself .So I'm not upset with a PROBLEM that may arise ..LET ME MAKE THIS PERFECTLY CLEAR..It's the treatment of it's paying members , lack of support , and blatent lack of respect from the moderators.
And If I can be frank,not many if any male mods there.
Anyways so I don't have my money , and I don't have my membership...NOTHING TO SEE HERE RIGHT ?!?!? Just a disgruntled member right ???
The owner of this site BRENT RILEY has several different addresses listed on the BBB website ( Grade F ) . Along with 2 phone numbers that no longer active , and a Facebook page that he no longers responds back to his customers with .So there is NO WAY to get a hold of him..Just as he planned.
16 years there , I've seen it all , Lot more stories to tell ( Hell I could write a book ) My screen name there is/was LilDevil ( Since May 2002) . Unlike the cowardly owner , I too am on Facebook..James Marks , except I...respond to people . I have no reason to hide
...unless I was like Brent Riley and took peoples money also
Bottom Line Folks : This site USED TO BE TOPS . It did . But over the years , and over the power trips , and after banning/silencing so many good/decent members , and after problem after problem on the technical side...This has fallen into a pit of has been ess.
Save your money , There are other sweepstake sites on the web
And if you enjoy being treated like crap...Then may I suggest that you reach out to your ex rather than joining OLS . ( Joking But Serious)
NOW GIVE ME MY MONEY BACK OLS !!WERE IS THE COWARDLY OWNER ?!?!? ( Chirp, chirp )
