J.C. Anderson ripoff! Montreal Quebec
Person called claiming to work for a Fraud Detection Service. Gave the routing number to checking account and said that someone had ordered merchandise on checking account. Wanted verification on the following numbers (being the checking account). 3 or 4 days later a check came to the bank by wire service. The number on the caller ID had a 514 area code. When you call the number it rings once and goes directly to a dial tone. Following the dial tone about 5 seconds later there are 3 beeps as if a person began dialing. The person who called gave a (866) number saying it went to the company where the merchandise was purchased. When you call that number it has a messege claiming to be customer service... but you can tell it is a cell phone. Iesha Englewood, ColoradoU.S.A.

Another victim of Of course I should have known better but I did it anyway and sent Lilhost money. Never send money to a company who flat out refuses to give a phone number or physical address. I was sold on the fact that they do have super fast customer service when you had questions prior to buying. I was a reseller for them and sold two websites when I was buying two for myself. I decided to wait until I saw if I was making money before selling anymore. Sure enough, no sales, customer service went from nice to mean and all promises not kept. Do business with them if you want to but you'll lose everything you spend. I would be interested in any class action suit. Steven niles, OhioU.S.A.

On March 4, 2004 I was checking my bank account and ran across a check I did not write, nor authorize. I called my husband and he had not heard of the company either. Made contact with the number on the bottom of my check and it was to CCR who was working for I explained to the man that I had not authorized this deduction from my account and had never heard of the company before in my life. He said that something should have come in the mail that I had to fill out, so I thought maybe someone had stolen my mail or it got put in the wrong box and someone filled it out forging my info. He informed me it would 10-15 business days and I would receive a refund. By March 26, 2004 I had not yet received my refund of 139.00 so I called the company back and was then told it would be another 15-30 business days. I told the lady that is not right how can they just steal my money. She went into greater detail on the mail thing that I had to call them within 10 days of receiving the mailing and then they would not have deducted from my checking account. I was floored. When I asked how they got my bank info she informed me it was an affiliate company of that had given them the info, so I asked for the name and number of that company and she refused to give it to me. I called my bank and found out that I needed to file a despute on the check, which I have now done. In the process of finding all this out the bank cashier researched the check for me and found out it was a paper check. It was printed on paper and looked nothing like my original paper checks at all and did NOT have my signature on it. A friend of mine found Rip-offreports.come when she went to search for again and that is when I was really made aware that I had been ripped off. Not just for a product, but totally stolen from. I hope this will cause everyone reading this report to check over their bank statements closely every month, and to open junk mail and then put it back in the envelopes these companies send with it and mail their junk back to them. Still infuriated that they got my account info without my knowledge and counterfitted a check and are can get away with that. Sabrina Snow Hill, North CarolinaU.S.A.

The steps I took are as follows: - I paid Wire Transfer - I sent and email with my information to let them know that it was paid. etc. - Up to this day I haven't gotten any feed back I am truly pissed off to know that in looking for Data Entry Jobs - at home these a-holes are the first to be on the internet and there is no way, I am seeing any benefit from this. All that I can do now is write this and hope that it is reported and prevent others from falling in the trap. Remember nothing was set confirming that they received my payment therefore they are just playing a very NASTY GAME.

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.

Oasis Travel Fraud/Scam, Internet
I received a call from an unknown number this morning at 11:22 am, stating that due to recent shopping at local Wal-Mart and gas station I was receiving a $200 gift card I could use at such locations.I was immediately skeptical, because the man addressing himself as Kevin Manwell sounded nothing like a Kevin Manwell. He sounded like a typical, foreign telemarketing scammer. However, I feigned interest and allowed him to continue his pitch. He stated my address, to ensure the card would be delivered, which I found very unsettling. Kevin then began telling me I would be charged two dollars for taxes, but then chalked it up to his company being located in Arizona. Hello? Shipping and handling is very different from taxes.First red flag.He then began asking about my Visa card, expiration date and the card number itself. I told him I was uncomfortable giving out such information over the phone, or to anyone for that matter. Again with the 'only two dollars, call your bank, look at it online, we will only be charging you two dollars, sir.'Second red flag.I then asked if he would hold for a moment, and immediately typed 'Oasis Travel Scam' into Google and was greeted with many accounts of the same vein. Scam, scam, scam. I told him that, while the deal was very appealing, I wasn't going to give our personal information, and that maybe someone else could receive the gift card.He then hung up. Surprise.Not satiated with humiliating the man, I went to the website in question to try and get back at him and his 'company.' I called the 'contact us' number, and was greeted by a woman named Wendy. I calmly stated, Hello Wendy, I believe I was just contacted b one of your employee's, and she cut me off there. She sounded almost pitiful, stating she was the victim of fraud, and that I had hopefully not given any information regarding my credit card. I explained that I had not, and she asked if it was about the $200 gift card. This is a problem not only to the people on the receiving end of annoying phone calls, but also to a legitimate business owner. It is wrong, and hopefully with some help, no one will have to deal with these thieving, conniving con-artist in the near future.
