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.

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.

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.
