Readers Magnet Market my book for me.....for a fee New York New York
Roger urged me to pay the registration fee of $650 to get my book in their catalog.  He claimed 200,000 people would attend the Book Fair in Frankfort Germany in October.  Those attending include librarians, owners of bookstores, teachers, students, parents.  I was reluctant to pay such a steep fee, so he qquicdkly re-calculated and said $550 would be acceptable.  He claimed this Book Fair is the biggest display of books in the world, with people coming from every nation on earth.  He estimated 200,000 would attend, and perhaps 1% of them would buy my book. That would be 2,000 books sold then and there.  However, he only asked me to send him one book, so whoever wants to buy my book would need to contract me and buy directly from. The more we talked, the more skeptical I became.  He spoke with an accent, as though he's not really an American citizen.

Share Magnet Share Magnet Steals the Money YOU earn! Manhattan Beach Internet
Do not promote Share Magnet if you want to get ripped off! I could care less about the pennies I earned but this is about principle and a warning to others. Glad I experienced this right off the bat and here to share my input.Share Magnet brings together advertisers and virtual marketers by having these marketers share what is called a magnet. These magnets are ads for the advertisers which the virtual marketers can earn pennies for each click on their individual unique magnet. Sounds interesting so I signed up on June 6, 2013 and started to lightly promote my first magnet to see how it works.Via Share Magnet you can see the number of clicks and earnings you have collected at anytime. Over the first two days I didn't have much but I had several clicks and now earnings. Being quite busy I was unable to promote or check my activity over the next few days or so but when I did finally log in all my clicks, earnings and even the magnet I was sharing was now missing. Being new to the program I figured the advertiser might have completed their campaign and maybe they were just completing the transfer of earnings to marketers 'Share Bank' where earnings are deposited before payment. I also checked my Paypal account just to make sure they didn't already send a payment which they did not. Curious what was going on I sent an inquiry via their contact us page on June 13th which says they will get back to you within 24 hours. No reply was ever received.Still no reply after a few days so I sent another inquiry via their contact us page on June 16th following up that I had sent an email a few days ago explaining I had shared a magnet, had clicks and therefore earnings but now nothing was showing and had not received a payment either. Once again no reply was ever received.On June 20th I found their direct email address via their Facebook page so decided I would send one last inquiry directly to this email address. Before I did I double checked everything once again. Nothing was showing under my shared links, nothing under completed campaigns, nothing under clicks generated, no earnings, nothing in my shared bank and nothing received by Paypal. In my email I once again included all this information and even the original magnet and link that I was promoting. Once again no reply. I also tweeted them asking about customer support on June 20th and no reply.Three strikes and you're out! As mentioned previously I could care less about a few pennies but this is about principle and glad I learned from the beginning that this company is out to rip people off. Do not waste your time with Share Magnet earning a pitiful $0.04 to $0.12 a click and then to just have your earnings taken from you with no reason or response. I don't like wasting my time with things and don't want others to either so please save your time by avoiding this company.

Mosquito Magnet / Woodstream Corp. Total rip-off and impossible customer service Lititz Pennsylvania
I have owned four of these over the last five years and only one is working. The original stopped working and after several calls to customer service. I just gave up as they had released a new and far improved model. That one stopped working severla years ago and I have never been able to get it going. Customer service has advised shaking side to side and duct tape over the vents to control air flow. Brilliant. I bought a corded one two years ago and that has continued to work. On that good luck, I bought a Liberty Plus last summer to cover another part of the yard. It stopped working by the end of the summer. I dreaded calling them again but just did. I was informed that without the actual recepit from the store, there is no warranty - and I cannot find my receipt from the Home Depot. So I am stuck. It is unbelieveable that they sell these things for the amount of money they do and have such TERRIBLE customer service and no real system for repairs. Especially for an item thats seems to be as quirky and sensitive as these. Shame on me for being such an idiot and going back to them but I really want to be able to enjoy my yard.

magnet At first I thought they were not a valid company I was wrong, Internet
I did get my necklace and bracelet today by mail.  I wanted to post that maybe the phones actually were changed and not working.  I do think the company should have acknowleded they received the order and it was on backlog it could have avoided the confusion in the first place.  I am happy with my purchace and all has worked out well.  The company was very pleasant when they contacted me by mail.  I am sorry for any confusion I had with them. They are not a fraudulant company. The jewlery I ordered from they is very nice and I would recomend it. It just took a week longer than I had expected. Instead of 7 to 10 days it took 20. It was worth the wait.  I hope the pain it is supposed to help now goes away. I am sorry to the company if I caused them any distress.

Magnet Emporium Charged card but no product delivered and will not respond to contacts Internet
I ordered a handheld magnet massager in early August 2012. I saved my confirmation email with receipt as I do when I order things online. 3 weeks later I had not received my product and so I tried to email them via the contact on their site. No reply for over a month and so I tried again. Saying I was pretty mad about being charged and not getting my product.About 2 weeks from then I emailed again informing I would contact the BBB, which I immediately did so. Now a month from my contacting BBB, they emailed me saying they have tried twice to contact these magnet fakers and so they are dropping the issue.So now I was charged $25 and 3 months later I still have no product and haven't even heard from them saying what they intend on doing. It seems this is a very common issue with this sorry excuse for a company. I seriously recommend doing business elsewhere.

city sports magnet ONE MAJOR LEAGUE CON-ARTIST ... BEWARE!!!! Pittsburgh pa
Mike Cardamone has arrest warrants out for him in Butler County, PA.  Check with the Saxonburg Magistrate's Office.  He scammed several businesses out of money with his previous magnet marketing business and left the county.  Now, he operates a similar scam in neighboring Allegheny County, PA.  His scams keep him moving around quite a bit.  Before giving this con-artist a dime, you may wish to check a tad deeper into his background.  I know he has been bankrupt at least once in the last 10 years.  His credit has been soooooo bad in the past because of his chronic, habitual late, or NO payments.  He has folded other magnet businesses in the past.  He rents, or has lived with relatives, because his credit is shot and he does not want people to find him.  He financially abuses people, creditors, businesses, etc, and simply moves to another county and starts over again.  His operation has never been much more than a laptop, in a rental/relative's home, a few other affiliated con-artists and a fast line of B.S.Should you know his home address, be sure to pass it along to the Magistrate's office in Saxonburg, PA.  Keep this P.O.S. looking over his shoulder!!!

Mosquito Magnet Woodstream Corp. mosquito magnet rip-off - poor support and repair rip-off scam Lititz Pennsylvania
expensive to purchase and operate. Unacceptable company support and repair network rip-off scam. I own two 1/2 acre defender models. these cost up to $300/each. I carefully followed ALL operation and maintainence procedures and that gets expensive: all told, (not including electricity) about $2.00 per day to operate. I had two units running and the warrentee had just expired. We had a power outage and the units obviously shut down due to lack of power. When power was restored the units would not function and gave an error message. After trying ALL trouble shooting procedures I contacted the company. The company told me I needed to get the units serviced at an aproved facility. I contected three seperate facilities and received the same story: At least a Three Week Wait and at least $100.00 minimum per unit PLUS parts This was unacceptable in the peak of mosquito season! When I asked if parts were available I was told that a repair facility would loose their company support if they sold me parts or told me how to fix the units! Having nothing to loose, I took a small cover off the units (one screw), freed a small part that was stuck by poking with a screwdriver, and this fixed both units, FOR FREE, using NO PARTS, in about a total of 5 minutes!!! I called and emailed the company with this news and told them I was considering writing this report - they did not even care. I received a call back from a repair facility and told them about how I fixed the units and they admitted the scam and were sorry they could not help me but that their hands were tied.

READERS MAGNET Literary Book Scout wanted $450 to market my book which they said came highly recommended by literary scout NYC New York
New scam on the way: Lookout book authors. Got a call from a guy saying my book was highly recommended by Literary Book Scout. No such organization but there are a bunch of freelance book scouts out there trying to drum up money by contacting authors most likely from Amazon to try and get the authors to pay them $450. to market their books. Did some more research and found the person called from Readers Magnet, PLEASE SHARE THIS WITH ANY AND ALL AUTHORS YOU KNOW AND CARE ABOUT--being a book author is no easy task and marketing your book once published, mostly self-published these days--is near impossible so these kinds of scammers prey on authors who usually have huge egos and desperately want their words read. In fact, please share this with anyone and everyone you know, since they just might know an author who needs to be made aware of this scam. One clue: all people I spoke with had a heavy foreign accent. Another clue they don't know English well as shown in their statement: … There are many things to remember in able for you to sell your book online. In able for you to sell your book online? In able? lol

Readers Magnet Solicit for payment for self-publishing and promotion New York New York
Readers Magnet solicited me by phone for $1,501 on the basis that a literary agent was interested in publishing my book.  After half an hour on the phone, I determined that they wanted me to send them $531 dollars by credit card immediately, and then two more payments.  They promised to have a cover designer and a marketing person contact me over the next month.  They also promised to register me for a Book Fair in New York, claiming they had the connections.   After looking at their website, and that of the Book Fair, I could make no affirmation that they had any such relationship with the Book Fair, or that the officials or talent agents at the book fair had any relationship with Reader's Magnet.  Further, there was no proof offered by them that a publisher's agent had ever expressed any interest in my book.  Frankly, Rich Mendez knew so little about my book, that I doubt he had anything other than the title on a list of self-published books. I am warning authors about this scam.

Residential Direct Marketing ,RDM, Magnet Advertising San Antonio, Texas
In May 2013 I was contacted by Rosa from Residential Direct Marketing or RDM (tel 210-248-9228). She offered the opportunity to sponsor a calendar for Cypress Bay School to be sent to the parents of the students and faculty. The calendar was to be supported by ads. We accepted and paid 299.50 plus 8.95 for an ad in the magnet. The magnet was to be given out at orientation. We paid and received an email acknowledgement that mentions the calendar would be given away to the families, but a small portion of the calendars was to be sold for fund raising for school organizations. Orientation passed in August, and in September we called RDM again and were told that the calendars would be sent during fall of 2013 to the school. Today October 22, 2013 we called to find out the status because they still have not shipped and we are informed that they only intent to send 450 calendars (there are 4500 students), all of the calendars are to be sold by the JROTC of the school. Danielle from RDM explained that Rosa had sold things that were not correct, RDM could not produce 4500 calendars for the school and make a profit. I asked my husband to give a call to RDM and ask for our money back. This was not what they sold us, the amount of calendars is greatly reduced, the year is closing and the calendars have not shipped. Danielle answered and when my husband tried to explain that the ROSA issue was internal to RDM, that we expected RDM to deliver what they had acknowledged in the acknowledgement email or return the money, she hung up on him. I forwarded the acknowledgement email back to Danielle ( just in case she did not have a copy and will gladly forward it to you. The text of the acknowledgement email is copied here (please see the first paragraph): RDM would like to thank you on behalf of Cypress Bay High School for advertising on their magnetic school directories for Fall 2013.

Fate cannot be altered that fast to change everything around you, and to affect lots of other people within the same situation, and the people around them. Real witches and psychics say timing cannot be predicted, psychic things are outside the psychic realm so for someone to say results in 2 to 5 days is a sales gimmick and not possible.

Americom - American Community Advertising ripoff Refrigerator magnet advertising scam Hazelwood Missouri
In December 2005 I was solicitated by phone by Americom, Mr. John Hovey 800-935-4576. He was selling a magnet ad with Amber Alert phone numbers and other emergency numbers of the City of Santa Rosa, California. He sold me a space on the magnet for a 3x2 advertisement. The cost was $245.00. I placed the order on my credit card. Then he called back and offered distribution to the entire Sonoma County for an additional $245.00. I agreed to purchase the additional distribution. A second charge was put through to my card for $245.00. The ad was supposed to be released in April. Since then, the company has been impossible to reach, no emails or phone calls are ever returned. I did reach a sales rep on June 1st who was supposed to ship me 40 sample magnets. It has been 20 days and nothing has arrived. Today I contacted one of the realtors in Northern California who was on a sample magnet that the company sent me in December. She said the company was a scam and that she and another realtor had been trying to get their money back from the company for a year and a half. She said the company delays the transaction long enough so that the credit card dispute date expires. Then the customer has no recourse and looses their money. Denise Sonoma, CaliforniaU.S.A.
