CDFSU SCAM RELIEF international Nationwide
I had previously written a negative report about the company that goes by CDFSU (Cheap Discount Software for You). The Windows XP that I was sent did not work after I installed the second disc. All of the settings on my computer screen changed and I could not adjust them. They would not answer my emails as to what might be the problem. I contacted them for assistance 3 times in 4 days and got nothing but an autmated response that they would get back with me within 24-36 hours. There was no other contact or return information on their website. I emailed them requesting a refund. A week after receiving the product I finally went to my bank who promised to investigate and get my refund. By the end of the day I had received an email from CDFSU that my refund would be started in 3 days. How nice it would have been to get such fast response as to why their product did not work in the first place. I don't recommend buying from them. Pamela Orem, UtahU.S.A.

AOMK1 a site that illegally sells dvd's Internet
I am writting to warn people to stay away from this site. When i joined up i thought it was a community about magic then found out they are offering illegally pirated materials and then they started asking for money! They asked for $60 to sign up and $25 per month to be a VIP member. The website owner himself states that over 90% of the people who donated to this site were kicked off - so he is basically stealing your money then banning you! Beware of this con-artist!

Telebid gambling websites disguised as auction site. Nationwide
The website telebid.com advertises itself as an auction website, but it is actually gambling covered up as auctioning. I believe their business is entirely illegal in the USA, and the are covering up the system to get people involved in it. Also, there is no way to unsubscribe from their marketing mailing list (broken link), and emailvision.com who they send newsletters with are also inaccessible. Alc LondonUnited Kingdom

Carrick Boston Scammer, Fraud Internet
This person answered a Craigslist ad for golf clubs. Wanted my name, address, phone number saying he would have a bank cerified check made out to me for the cost of the golf clubs. Then said his wife was in bed and that was the reason he did not get back to me sooner. Then said he would have his movers, Alachua Moving Service, bring the check and pick up the golf clubs. The use of the English language was poor even though the words were spelled properly. I did not answer but am uncomfortable about this person. Have seen other reports about this same number but different name and different items. Linda Mt. Juliet, TennesseeU.S.A.

shoppershotline.com cheats, cheats, cheats Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Santa McDowell says that shoppershotline.com had her redeem her points which she did in January 2010 to get $50.00 she thought it would be placed on her debit card. Imagine her shock when she called shoppershotline.com and she was told no it would not be placed on her debit card but she would receive a physical check for $50.00 before April 1, 2010. To date she has received nothing not one red penny. She kept calling shoppershotline to see where the money was she kept being put off by a person who calls himself john. He continuously told Santa McDowell not to worry she would get the check for $50.00. The place has gone out of business and they have been taken over by Consumer Panelist. So now what happens, no money no nothing eventhough she complied with everything she was asked to do no money at all.

Geico Unfair Rate Increases Internet
UNFAIR RATE INCREASES This company Geico said that they lower the rate of your bill when you are a good driver without accidents.  In the last year Geico has been raising the amount of your bill with nothing to base their increases on.  And these are exuberant increases. When they are questioned their answer is: you recieved a letter in the mail informing everyone that we were increasing your bill.  So what you informed us.  What is the increase BASED ON.  Especially when they souped me into signing with their company by promising that my rates would decrease as long as I kept a good record with no accidents.  Well, it started out good and each payment period my bill was decreased.  But now Geico is allowed to flip a switch and decide to now go in the other direction and increase my bill? What I want to know is, is this a breach of contract between company and the insured?  We are talking about a company that advertised and bated clients saying that they reward you by decreasing your monthly payment when you don't have accidents.  This is years of establishing myself with this company in order to keep the amount of my insurance down.  Look how they wasted my time.  I could have been established with a different company who were giving me the same service that Geico said that they would.  They even had the nerve to say other people were having accidents that they had to pay off.  What does this have to do with me?  Aren't they in the insurance business?  Please respond legally if possible.  Something is not right here.  My increase is now up to $30.00.  Every time they renew, they increase and I'm paying and paying for someone elses gain.  The usual proceedure was to increase the amount of those who had the accidents.  Why don't I decide to tell my boss to now pay me for staying home instead of paying me for coming to work.  Who is letting Geico get away with this.  Does the government know about Geico's business practices and how they rip off even their best customers?  Come on now!!!

Haggle.com DISHONEST, RIPOFF Bellevue, Washington
I recently joined Haggle and read everything they posted about how to bid at the auctions.  I spent about $300.00 and lost every single auction I bid on.  I noticed the same people winning over and over again.  At the last auction Haggle froze my account in the middle of bidding thereby guaranteeing my loss and wasting all my prior bids.  When I complained they said it was due to unusal activity with my account.  Later they said it was because of aggressive bidding, i.e., I bid twice in a row at the 1 second mark on the clock.  My bidding was far less aggressive than the other bidders, especially the ones that win over and over again.  When I pursued this they changed the time of the auction history on the item they forced me to lose and now claim I was bidding on something other than what I actually was bidding on at the time.  When I posted a warning on Haggle's Facebook page, Haggle deleted the warning within 3 seconds!  Something is not right about this site.  Too many people are complaining about unfair practices/glitches that prevent bidders from winning.  These irregularities raise serious questions about the legitimacy of the site and it appears an investigation is in order.  I'm contacting the Attorney General's Office ASAP.

boa scam clearwater, Florida
ok i have deffinetly never done this before..ok..I am a college student and was hired at boa August 2009. Since the first week at boa I had an unconfortable occasion when the assistant manager said that she couldnt find my name in the system...Honestly I did not know what system she was talking about because i've never had an issue with that. No employer has ever said that they couldnt find me in the system..A couple of days later the assistant manager in front of all the other tellers asks me if my name is my real name? You know if she really had to ask why couldn't she ask in private. I explained to her that in my culture we have our fathers and mothers last name, but that in this country I've always gone by my first and last name. Like i said i have never had an issue with that. So since the beggining I have not really been to fond of that assistant manager. The lady is just plain rude all the time. I don't even know where to start. On Nov 25th the day before thanksgiving is when the issue ocurred. I needed large bills so I asked the teller manager for them. She said she didn't have money to give me (she handles the vault) so she borrowed 4thousand from another teller. This teller was working in the drive thru that day while i was in the lobby. Well she handed the money to me. As the day went on people made deposits so i had cash. At 230 pm before i balanced to go home my manager asked me to give the teller the money back. I told her that i thought he had sold it to me. She anwered, no he let you borrow it. So i gave him back the 4 grand but when i balanced i came out 4300 dollars SHORT. My manager helped me recount and look for a mistake but she did not find anything wrong.  To me nothing made sense. How could i be short the amount that i borrowed from the other teller. SOMETHING IS WRONG!!!  I went home and I honestly thought they would find it and everything would be ok. So since this happened on weds., thurs we were off for thanksgiving, and friday i came in to work but they had no news of the money. I had no idea how to react  I had never worked in a bank before this. Saturday and Sunday the bank was closed then monday before I left the teller manager asked me to NOT come in the next day (tuesday) because corporate security was goiing to investigate but that they were going to pay me the day anyways. So tuesday i was off and wednesday mys my day off so i did not come back until thursday Dec 3rd 2009. That day they said that corporate security did not want me to handle any more transactions until further notice so they had me lobby leading (greeting ppl ect no cash handling). Thi was very hard on me. I felt that something was very wrong and i began to have an odd feeling like when you feel lied to.  This went on until wednesday Dec 8th I belive. Corporate security or preety much KEVIN BEASLY came in to interview me. That day they had given me off so I came in just for the interview. I'm thinking they did not want me there when he arrived. Theres a lot more to this but to sum it up in the interview Kevin Beasly said that he had no idea what couldve happened to the money. So i asked him if they had checked the camera and his response was No we haven't checked the cameras, I can check them but i don't promise you anything because when we check those cameras we can only see the back of the tellers head OH MY LORD when he said that i knew this people were screwing with me. There is no way that he can say this to me. IF THE ONLY THING THAT THEY CAN SEE IS THE BACK IF THE TELLERS HEADS THE CAMERAS WOULD NOT BE THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE. Bull crap!!!! Dec 10th, 2009 they terminated me. The Bank manager  (oh and of course the assistant manager was watching with the biggest smile) said that wether the money is found or not that they had to terminate me because of the amount.  What I told her was that non of this made sense its hard to believe that this much money is lost and that they can not come up with an answer. I told her I felt like they did not do enough. She responded that i can contact Kevin Beasly and ask but that guy had done nothign so far. I called him and he never answered the phone finally he left me a voice message saying that he has not found anything and to please call him if i remember anything because he insinuates that i took the money. In the end I don't know what this people really did. Maybe they took the money and used to me declare a loss. Who knows? I don't know if I should get a lawyer. The worst part is that now there is a termination from bank of america in my record. This also has really affected me. I a very sad about all of this. I have a hard time concentrating because I am constantly trying to figure out what could've happened. It's very depressing. I just want closure. I want an answer to what happened with that money. I want my peace back. If someone can help me. Idk..

A listing of a potential job position was advertised on Craigslist, the position was for an assistant.  That should have been the tip off that something was amiss.  The result was:  I received a check in the amount of $2,450.00.  I was to pay some of the individual's bills, deduct 2 weeks salary, and the remainder, forwarded per Western Union or Money Gram, to a mailing address in the United Kingdom.  The check will be accepted and cashed at your local bank but within weeks, it will be returned as bogus.  The bank will then debit your personal account for the $2,450.00.  Your money will be long gone.

standardrateplan.com Texting Scam Internet
My daughter (10 years old) just signed up to receive text alerts (and a joke service) from the company named standardrateplan.com. It sells jokes to consumers and seems to be a hot spot for young kids. Even though they have a disclaimer that you have to be 18, or have the permission of your parents, your cell phone bill gets charged automatically once you put in your cell phone number (don't know yet if my 10-year old even knows she signed up for this or that it costs money). Talked to a representative and they cancelled the service (only had it for about 2 hours), but they would have to send a refund check - they can't just take it off your cell phone bill.

My daughter (10 years old) just signed up to receive text alerts (and a joke service) from the company named jokesstandardrateplan.com. They started a monthly charge to her cell phone for their service (6 text alerts throughout the month), even though they have a disclaimer that the person needs to be 18 years old or have permission of their parents - we knew nothing about it and only learned of it when her cell phone beeped with a new text alert. They automatically charge your plan, and even though my daughter was only on the plan for less than 2 hours, they said they can't credit my bill - they will have to issue a refund check. I was not a happy camper. So tell your children to beware and don't type in their cell numbers - they will get charged.
