Misleading and Fraudulent Practices
Posted by on
TAMPA, FLORIDA -- As a consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.

Global Net Warehouse promised me I would see results in 30 days, not to worry, I could get my money back. I was told I did not have to advertise, just pay $199 for a website and $19.99 a month to maintain the site. Then I was told I would have to advertise and for just $500 would get 150 brochures that would guaranty my income. I spent another $55.50 for postage, printed letters and advertised. After 4 months, nothing worked. I reported them to the BBB and they also got no satisfaction from this company.

As a resolution, I would like the following:

I would like my money back for the brochures and the website in the amount of $699.00. I actually spent about $900 but would be happy with $699.

Please contact me if you need more details regarding this incident.

Sorry about that...they got me, too. I put my complaint on another web site. Now they call me almost every night saying they will give my money back only if I retract what I said.

It is Feb24/06, I found out about this website through my sister. My story is very long, I will try and keep it as short as possible, as my credit card company is charging ME, not GLOBAL NET WAREHOUSE, after a half year of dispute. I was Told that He (the merchant), would drive down here and do what ever it takes to get my credit card number after trying to call me and bribe me day after day.I called police, they said thay can't do anything until the person arrives. I got scared, I live alone, I did not know who to look for, as I obviously don't know what he looks like. I was terrified, so he told me to make it easy and just sign 2 order forms (NOt Receipt) and my number. I just did it and immeadly called my credit card co. and the end result is that He alleged that he sent me a package, and that he build a website for me and that I signd receipt of that and more. I am sick to my stomach, and told my credit card co ablut this and they refused to look up this site. At least it substantiates that this company is a big fraud and getting bigger. I am on disabiliy, and am scraping , not even that and my have to sell my car, I can not affor a bad credit. I have had good credit all these years and never made such a purchase for much over a thousan for a refrigerator. The credit company refused to look at this web site they have nothing other than forged documents, I was never contacted again by Global Net Ware House, and he rebuttled showing a bumch of Web sites and other stuff I know nothing about. The credit card co did not even bother checking to see if there was proof of shipment to me, or communications. I do not have an mo of ordereing such high costing items.My case started on August 24th,06. I am thankful for this web site, as it is the link or the smoking gum which I can show in court. We need to file a class action suit. Vina at Oceanside CA oceanmusic5@yahoo.com

Typically I don't get involved in things like this but I decided to give it a shot and see what happened. I was told that I could get the website for 400+ dollars and that I could get the advertising campaigne which would include 200000+ hits to my website and that my sales would show it. It has been 3 months now and I just finally got a call back from david green after calling everday for the last couple of weeks let alone months. I was told that he would be in his office today so I called and talked to the guy who always answers the phone. I abuptly told him that I wanted to speak to mr green, as he went to blow me off again I told him that I was told he would be in his office today, he said let me take your number and your name and he will call you back, I told him no I would wait online until he answered, the guy said you cannot tie up the main line, my response was well I guess I will prevent you from ripping anyone else off. I then asked for the office address to the building, he wouldn't give it up, he told me that it was on the contracts I told him that the address on the paper was a po box and I wanted the address to the building, he said no, I then told him that I was contacting the attourney general of Arizona and I wanted his address, he gave it up and about 5 minutes later as I was typing my complint I get a call from mr green saying what is your problem what questions do you want me to answer. I asked where is my advertising campaigne. He said it was still being worked on, this coming from the company that does so many advertising campaigns for the same 20000 products that they cannot keep up. I responded that he told me it would be a couple of days or weeks not months. he began to get annoyed and told me to shut up and listen or he was haning up on me. I listened for a min and then went off. I then contacted the attourney generals office and I have not attempted to contact them again. 6 months for products or services is ridiculous. I have all the contracts here and it saying nothing about 6 months. I am still being charged for the website and the best part of all is that when my roommate attempted to order stuff off it he along with others got emails stating that all the products they were attempting to order were out of stock so they appologized but they wouldn't be charged, Now that brings me to the second part of the contract which is the warehouse drop ship which I paid so much to be part of that cannot even fulfil orders. this company should be shut down.. they are advertising

Cingular Wireless
Posted by on
As a consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.

I had to switch (from AT&T) to Cingular service because an AT&T phone went bad. Despite being assured that AT&T customers would not experience any inconvenience I
had to buy TWO (2) new phones, had to increase my plan from $59.99 to $69.99
to keep the $9.99 second line, and had to pay a connection charge even though I
kept the same two phone numbers I've had for over a year. I had NO OPTION here since I was on contract with AT&T. Now I've been charged for 330 incoming text messages that I would never have had to pay for with AT&T and it costs me twice as much to text message within my own account. On top of this I'm being told that I won't be getting the $100 rebate from my phone purchase because the form was not postmarked in time even though the young man at the Cingular store told me he was processing the rebate and never gave me any forms to send in.

After being an AT&T customer for over 5 years Cingular has addressed my concerns with 'we are sorry for the inconvenience'.

I realize all charges are detailed in the fine print in their brochures and on their website however, I listened to the young man who handled our transaction who explained the differences in my Cingular Plan and my AT&T plan and NEVER ONCE was anything said about the fact that they charge for incoming Text Messages.


As a resolution, I would like the following:

I would like to see Cingular operate ethically in their advertising and staff performance.

I realize I am in a contract that I am responsible to and unfortunately I can not afford the $300 to cancel out in addition to having to buy new phones through another provider since the two phones I purchased in March for $320 (with an ADVERTISED $100 rebate)cannot be used on another system.

I would like to receive the $100 rebate I am entitled to, $38.00 credit for the service connection charge and $33.00 refund for incoming Text messages on my last statement. Then we will make adjustments in our program plan to deal with these for the remaining term of this contract.

Please contact me if you need more details regarding this incident.

Due to death in family I had to move to a state where there *IS NO* Cingular coverage. Cingular doesn't care. Pay the monthly charge on a phone that I can't use, or pay the $300 cancel fee.

Discover check fraud
Posted on
TUCSON, ARIZONA -- As a honest consumer from your state, I felt it was my responsibility to bring to your attention the following incident.

I had a Discover card account. Included with the credit card they also send 'Discover checks'. These are just another way of doing a cash advance from an account.
My residence was in Washington state but I was in Arizona working for Microsoft. I went into a Sears department store to make a payment on my Discover bill and also to put a fraud alert on my account. I had just separated from my wife and because I was the sole owner of the account I felt the need to protect myself. I was assured by the associate at Sears that anyone attempting to use my account would be asked for identification and that only myself would be allowed access.
Two months later I received a statement that included a cash advance of $1,500.00 plus fees. I immediately contacted Discover and notified them and learned that a Discover check had been cashed on my account. I received a copy of the check and contacted Discover again to verify that my name had indeed been forged, it was not my signature.
I thought that would be the end of it but it was not. I continued to be billed for the full amount,(my part of the bill and the $1,500.+). I paid off the part of the bill that was mine but refused to pay the part that was not mine. I talked to several Discover people about this but got nowhere.
This forged check continued to accrue interest and late fees until finally Discover cancelled the card.
Several years later I applied for a credit card only to find that this debt is listed on my credit report and is causing me no end of problems.

I moved from Washington state to Tucson Arizona several months before this incident occurred but the person who forged my name and cashed the check was in Washington state.


As a resolution, I would like the following:

I would like to go after my ex-wife for forging my name to this check but I don't know where to begin. I would also like to have this removed from my credit report.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like more details regarding this incident.

This comment is very late... but I want to say this anyway. Don't let your credit companies send you these checks in the mail. Discover used to send them to me. I called them up and order this practice to stop immediately. They complied, however, various other companies have done the same thing and I always had them stopped. They make it too easy for criminals to commit fraud. I wish there was a way to stop the credit card offers that come as well. But beyond notifying the credit reporting agencies, I don't know what else to do. They just keep coming. Citibank is the worst. BTW, fraud alerts placed on your credit file are only good for 90 days. After that you have to renew the order. The exception to this is if you have actually had fraud committed against you. I think that they are good for 7 years in those cases. Could be wrong about the number, but they will explain this when you call them.
