HUDforclosed.com MISLEADING ADVERTISEMENT Westlake Village, California
The HUD forclosed.com Internet ad leads consumers to believe that they are signing up for a no obligation one-week trial term for $1. However, far down on the page very small print states that if you do not cancel your one-week, you will be charged $39. per month. This information is conspicuously missing from the term that I choose. Ok so I sucked it up. After all, how stupid of me to get suckered by yet another unethical Internet advertiser. All I could do was cancel immediately (?) The e-mail address listed on my credit card statement was incorrect. It took me and a representative of my credit card company about 35 mins of Internet searching to find the correct contact information for HUDforclosed.com (shown on the statement as HUDforclosed.net). Depending on which search engine you use, you may/may not be able to find this company to cancel your subscription. Bottom line SKIP THIS ONE.!!!!!! Madashell lynwood, CaliforniaU.S.A.

Herbalife Brainwash Los AngelesLos Angeles California
First off, I would like to say my heart goes out to all those who have invested huge sums of money in Herbalife to come up empty. In December 2006, I saw a commercial on T.V. I had seen this commercial several times before but finally decided to go to the website and sign up for the DVD which was $9.95. I got a call from my soon to be mentor a day before the DVD arrived. I wondered how she got my information and asked her if she was affiliated with the television commercial. She acted as if she didn't know what I was talking about. She asked me a bunch of questions to see if we were a match. She asked me how much money I would like to make every month and how much my current job paid. After all that, she gave me this wonderful testimony of how she's well on her way to making the money she's always desired. I promised to watch the DVD and hung up kind of excited. When I got the DVD, I watched enthusiastically. It was like watching a fairy tale with a happy ending. Doran Andry and his wife Emiko had the huge house and fancy cars we've all dreamed of having. He talked a good game about how he made $200k, and on up to 1.1 million in one year. After I watched the DVD I had to set up an appointment with my mentor and some guy named Ed Borrowe. This took place on New Year's Eve and they told me since I was so serious and willing to work on holidays, I would definitely be successful. To make the long story short, I signed up for the business pack and more sample packs. That mentor was really pushing me to become a supervisor and purchase the 4000 volume points of inventory. I flat out refused because after all, they stated that I did not have to stock inventory. I was told to set up business accounts, get business phone lines, get an account that can charge people's credit cards, get business cards, leads, sample packs, a phone line where I couldn't speak to anyone directly but just accept messages, get useless websites that no one would ever visit and the list goes on. That's over $1000 right there. I was getting married in a few months. I was 24 years old and wanted to make money to cover some wedding expenses. Dialing those leads was degrading and pointless. I can't count how many times I've been hung up on and told that I have the wrong number. One time I called a woman and tried to send her a sample pack. When I told her it was Herbalife (the mentors and upline don't want you to mention Herbalife but this lady asked...) she said Herbalife products are responsible for her high blood pressure. After listening to my mentor and her upline (which is supposed to be connected directly to Doran Andry himself) they all sounded brainwashed. It became disgusting to listen to them. I finally freed myself from this mess after 5 months of spending money that I did not have and not even breaking even. I googled Herbalife and found out what a ripoff this is. I should have done this before I spent my hard earned money. My advice to anyone would be to run as fast as you can. I could go into passing out 2000 fliers a day to get 15 interested prospects but I'll spare you that. The more I got involved with Herbalife the more I found the business model made no sense and was impossible to follow the program. What doggone proven program? The Herbalife products are actually pretty decent but the so-called business opportunity suuuuuuucccks!! Came to my senses Harvey, LouisianaU.S.A.

Zingow.com Entice and then Extract Your Cash! Internet
I was told that I would have a seven day trial period and that my credit card would NOT be charged anything but the verifying $1.00. IT was charged instead 199.00. They are refusing to refund my money, so I am having to file a dispute with our credit card people. They tell you about homes they will help you get, but all they do is provide two things, the addresses that can be found in civil records locally anyway and then provide you with two sample letters to write to the homeowners. It is you that does all the work and they get 199.00 for doing nothing. I am highly incensed. They offer hope to people that have been down on their luck and then snatch it away as fast as they snatch your cash. They are a dangerous company and one that I highly recommend staying away from.

Anchorhousefinancial hidden secrets Montecito California
I found an ad for Anchor House Financial on craigslist.com and called the company. Everthing about the company and how they helped customers seemed unbelievable. Even with our reservations we paid the $199 and hoped things worked out. We were excited at first because we got our listings and found houses we were interested in. Then came the secrets. Later on in our research we found that they have no connection to the home owners. They just make you print out a paper talking about anchor house financial and how great it is but with no help. After giving out at least 10 letters we had heard nothing back. After over a month of hard work, we gave up on them. We called an asked for our money back. Then they told us that we needed to recieve 5 rejection notices in order to receive our money back. They also said that we should be sending out 5 notices a week yet there aren't enough houses listed to do that. So now we are just sitting and waiting, hoping that we get rejection notices or were out $199. Its outrageous! Amber77 Dallas, OregonU.S.A.

Usfastcash is the biggest scam online internet
Usfastcash is one of the biggest online scams. I notice a company had been taking money out of my account. I also notice they did not have a phone number for you to call them. I did some research, thank god for Ripoff Report. Luckly i found out there were alot more people you have been fradulent scammed by these people. I found their number off of your guys website and called them. They gave me a bogesh story, said that I knew i had a loan with them and they had been emailing me on my loan. People, I did not have an account with them, they gave me a fake ID and password, that I had not created. I tried to explain to them, why have they taken out $500 out of my account and I don't have a loan with them. I spoke to a so call supervisor,which he was the biggest jerk on earth, He basically told me it was sad that i had to turn to a loan company to get money. I am telling this idiot that I don't have a loan with them. I got no where with him. I filed a police report on them and contacted my bank. My bank reversed the charges and put a freeze on my account. Well, I thought that would have ended this whole delma, NO, in two weeks they turned around and put a fake check through, that i had not authorize Instead of them taking $500 they took $845, I occured all kinds of Nsf and charges from my bank. This was the second time I had to call my bank to fix this. The second time I called the lady at my bank said they could not do anything about it, luckly I ask to speak to a manager and she is in the process of helping. The manager at my bank was also aware of the big scam Usfastcash is pulling on people, she said out of all the loan companies on line the are the worst ones. Is there any way to stop them people!!!!!

Dermitage Quite the Scam Internet
I also am a victim of Dermitage. I fell for the Internet offer of 30 day trial completely free, just pay shipping and handling of $7.95. No obligation necessary. 30 days later they took $100 out of my checking account. When we called to see why they did this, they stated, That was for what we sent you, since you didn't send it back that means you want us to take out $100 every six months for your product. First of all, this was a trial size. There is absolutely no way what they sent would last 6 months. You have to use both the products they sent twice a day, which lasted almost 1 month. What happened to the other 5 months? Stressing over this $100 has caused more wrinkles than any product they could ever send me. Tcampbell Chandler, ArizonaU.S.A.

Verizon Overbilled & Ripped Me off Nationwide
I've been a FIOS customer since 2006. The original agreement was to get a package deal of $100/month bundle for TV, phone, and Internet. Ever since I've signed up, Verizon's been billing me double that: $195/month. I called customer support and they said: Your phone doesn't qualify for the bundle deal. I'm pretty sure that Verizon has been getting lots of flack from lots of other customers for their overbilling. Verizon even abused my credit card, by overcharging on it. I am going to cancel FIOS, and go with xxxxxxxxx. I have a Verizon Wireless plan, once that contract has expired, I'll switch to another cell carrier. Verizon Wireless let comapnies charge my cell phone bill for UNAUTHORIZED texting services WITHOUT MY PERMISSION OR KNOWLEDGE. In conclusion, IF YOU WANT TO BE DECEIVED, CHEATED, AND LIED TO, DON'T GET VERIZON. THEY WILL OVERBILL YOU, AND WILL TRY AND GET EVERY PENNY THEY CAN OUT OF YOU.

Long story short..we cancelled the service recently..they informed me we owe them 400$$$$!!! for early cancellation fees?? Keep in mind,that JUST for the upgrade,we had to pay for a new receiver (leased now,not owned) at over 100 bux,and pay 123.00 for istallation! I NEVER even got the paperwork from the installer..or anything from them..stating any of the new contract crap..after 10 yrs..who knew? Anyway,will fight this till we drop...obviously,if we could afford 400 bux,we could pay the outrageous bills........& we didnt have movie channels,etc.. DO NOT USE THEM..they will rob you blind,or try too.. they are unproffesional,and with the economy,you would think they would appreciate the business.. a good guess..they will be outta business soon....and I will be very happy to hear that on the news..

Ameriloan 1-800-Ameriloan-RipOff Internet
I got a cash advance of $150.00 through Ameriloan a few months ago. There was a $45.00 fee for every month that the account remained unpaid. To request full payment I have to go into my online account through Ameriloan and submit my payment request. I submitted a full payment request to be paid on 7-02-2008. I requested it nearly a month ahead of time and it clearly showed on the computer at the time that I requested it and it had been scheduled. When full payment was to have been made on July 2nd, I found out through looking into my bank account that the $45.00 fee was continuing to be taken out rather than the full payment I had requested. When going back in to my online Ameriloan account on their website I found that it looked like I had not submitted a request at all. It just showed what it usually did every month of $45.00 and when it was due next. I then re-submitted a request for full payment for August 1st, which is the $150.00 plus the $45.00 combined, meaning the full payment that was scheduled again was for $195.00. I feel I should not have to pay the extra fees considering I tried to get it payed in full at the beginning of July. From that point I emailed Ameriloan from the contact form on their website. I was harsh, I was threatening. I have been put through this same thing with other cash advances and did not want yet another to do the same. I told them I did not care anymore of the legal consequences and if they did not take care of this I would have my lawyer hash things out with them. In one of the first e-mails I sent to them this month I even threatened to close my checking account if they did not take out the money owed to them immediately and I stated to them that this matter would be closed soon. I continued to get e-mails that gave me the runaround. Shortly after I submitted for full payment, this time for August 1st, I told them I wanted to pay in full much sooner than that. I gave them a few days after I sent them my first e-mail to get the money out, then checked my banking account. Nothing new. So, I closed my checking account and ripped the money out from underneith them. It is safely somewhere else now and waiting to be paid to them. I stated that no further account numbers to anything would be given, that included credit card numbers, new checking account numbers, etc. In order for them to get their money they would have to come directly to me for it. That I needed the name and address where to send a money order to. That was the only form of payment I was willing to give at the time. I continued to get e-mails from customer service claiming I had to call customer service at 1-800-362-9090 and when their office hours were. I also would get e-mails about how they would except credit cards, debit and moneygram/Western Union. This particular e-mail mentioning about credit cards was after I mentioned I would not give out any card numbers and such. I continued to persist on an address to send a money order to in order to pay off my loan. I needed the name to make it out to and the address to mail it to. I was wondering why they continued to give me the run around when I was asking simple questions that they would not answer. That I was supposed to call customer service when it was customer service I was getting all the e-mails from. It wasn't like I was asking anything difficult for them to send me through an e-mail. I told them to stop all the monkey shine. I also mentioned that they must be afraid to give out their address. I received another e-mail back stating once again to call customer service at 1-800-362-9090. I decided I would try to go through Western Union to pay them and use cash and walk in to a Western Union. But of course you need the information from the company, like numbers and such so you can send the money. So I had no choice but to call customer service. I called Ameriloan thismorning. So far they actually still have full payment marked down to be paid on August 1st. Surprisingly. But they still want the extra fees with the payment that is paid every month, $195.00 total. Even though I claimed it was their mistake and full payment should have been made at the beginning of the month and no more fees should have been taken out. You know what the woman told me at Ameriloan, We don't make mistakes. She said they check their computer through and no sign of me submitting a full payment. I know I submitted one. This is just another way they can continue to take out more fees. I asked why they do not take money orders. She said they don't take postal payments. But when I mentioned to her I cancelled my checking account she said they take starter checks from your new checking account. Well, wouldn't that have to mean I would have to mail the check? That would be considered a payment through the mail. But the only thing I told her when she said about the starter checks is that it would have my new account numbers on it and I said I would not give any numbers out. I then asked her why they would not give me an address. She said they are not allowed to give out their postal address. She also said since Ameriloan gave me the money for the cash advance by ACH (Automatic Check) that they expected it to be paid back by ACH. So I told her that if she was doing the fair, fair tactic about that then why can't they give me a their address? I said You have all my information, including my address, why can't I have yours? She also told me that they would not except Western Union payment until time of collections. Meaning until after they tried to withdrawel from my account on August 1st and could not withdraw, then they would come after me for a late payment. I knew what the after time of collections meant. That would make me look bad and them look good. You know what I told her? I told her Screw It, and hung up the phone. But I did give her a good chewing out. I'm telling you Ameriloan makes every excuse to get more money out of you. I'm looking around for lawyers to give me more advice. I have another cash advance out through another company worth alot more than that and I have a feeling come August 3rd when that one is due, though it should have been paid a lot sooner, that I will have the same trouble with them as well. Regardless of what the online papers stated when I signed them, I was not going to continue to be ripped off and have what was left of my money and my pride destroyed. Stand up to these companies that take advantage of you when you are in a needing and desperate situation. Do not let all their legal tactics and papers stop you from taking the law into your own hands and fighting back through your own methods. (As long as you fight back legally, I am not encouraging you to do otherwise). Most of all, close all your accounts and reopen them somewhere else where they think not to look, but make sure you keep the full amount of money hidden and don't spend it. So that you can prove you did have the money and were willing to pay before you even closed your account. Don't give in when they persist for account numbers to credit cards, or even your new accounts. Make sure you have it in writing that you were willing to pay them and when. That means e-mails or whatever you can find. That way when questioned by a lawyer or something when time of collections come, you do not get into so much trouble because the money was available to Ameriloan, but Ameriloan was fighting dirty. Never again will I go through cash advances, or as some people call them, payday loans. I have lost so much money. It takes care of your problems for like a month and then things start going down hill after that. I am now in worse condition finanacially than I have ever been. I knew there would be some sort of risk when I first took out a cash advance, but I did not know it would go to the extent it did. So many of the cash advances are bad ones. Don't get a cash advance. You may not recover for many months, maybe longer. Your credit will be further ruined because you can't pay on your loans you have out, your family will go into further debt trying to help you, your mental state is totally out of it. You can't pay any insurance bills, bills on the home or much of anything because the cash advances take so much from you. Right out of your accounts. You can get tired of debt collectors calling you for money. Kms Galesville, WisconsinU.S.A.
