Doubling Stocks Complaint - Email advertisement - Not doing what was advertised

Review by pawpaw419 on 2008-01-08
I received an email about a robot that could predict winning stocks. In the email, it stated that if I read the whole email( which was quite long-20 minutes) and I found that it was a waste of my time, they would pay me $20.00. I took them up on it and after I read the email, I found that it was a waste of my time and I emailed them to let them know and to give them my PayPal account info. Needless to say, after 3-4 emails that I have sent them, I have not received any email back or any money in my account.

Being ripped off is common on the internet, but I continue to see the same people advertising and getting people to pay them money for their amazing ROBOT that I get a little hot under the collar. Do not advertise something without backing it up!

All that I have asked of them was to let me know what a scam they were pulling and to give me my $20.00. I hope that this finds its way to them

I'm sorry but there is no such thing as free money. This could have been some kind of phishing scam, and you may have set yourself up for identity theft. I strongly suggest you change your PayPal information right away. Next time you get an e-mail like this report it as a phishing scam and delete it immediately.

You know bargod, my husband complained about his bagel being burnt this weekend and said something about finding new kitchen help.

And I thought I was a bad cook!

LOL Gothic! He made his own bagel. And if I did burn his bagel, he is smart enough not to complain about it, unless he wants it thrown at him! He just barely learned that cooking on high heat doesn't cook things faster it just burns them.

I heard Bill Gates is going to share his wealth if you forward an Email to all of your friends as well.

Such an obvious scam. It's hard to believe someone would actually fall for it.
