Email dated March 12, 2007:

I was sucked in my the free laptop offer. They offer a free laptop if you register with 6 organisations. Of course there is no laptop at the end. I have now spent hours on trying to un-register memberships, cancel contracts etc and live in fear of the debiting that will occur on my credit card. To cancel some you can only ring a 1800 number in America. Do not follow any of the links or give any of your details. One organisation has an is linked to www.theopinionsnetwork.com and I cannot contact them at all to cancel my registration. Hope you get to the bottom of this fraud. Thanks Helen

"Fraudalert: This company ShoppersSavingCenter got me into big trouble-way too long to mention. Suffice to say that they & their affiliates are   involved with e-mail fraud, take people's credit card numbers and bilk them for amts like 59.95$ etc over time, which adds up & up,  as well as flooding (500+ in a few days) one's junk & even in-box with mail. The customer gets a bill, to their surprise, listing UNKNOWN companies, with a whole bunch of unauthorized charges that have been converted from CDN dollars to U.S., when the cardholder is in Canada. One of these ''affiliates'' turned out to be Fastauction.com, running clandestinely out of Nevada, with a phony telephone number. I had to cancel my credit card altogether. I got into the whole mess in the first place by simply entering the ShoppersSavingCenter site. Go figure."

NOTE: Another visitor writes:  FRAUD BY FASTAUCTION.COM, YOU CAN CALL CLICKBUILDER.NET AT 1-866-652-0479. THEY ARE DIRECTLY CONNECTED TO FASTAUCTION.COM WHICH NOBODY HAS BEEN ABLE TO CONTACT

Email from another victim:

"Yes they are a scam , They provide you with messages telling you are a winner ie the 1000000th visitor. The message goes "To qualify for your laptop start by fully completing any 2 of the silver offers listed below.

"complete any 2 offers below to get your laptop" only after doing this and then reading the other fine print you find you need to sign up on many more offers ie about another 8 plus you need to refer someone who then also needs to sign up.

Ebay has never sent out the free kit and only the fine print tells you they will start debiting your account $49.95 a month if you don't cancel - Clearly a scam. ie no Kit ever received then try to get your money back? ha

Get paid for your opinion - what a joke - of all the ones i looked at no money is ever offered just reward points that can be accumulated that will never keep you working from home- I want a refund? The advertisment says 'You can get paid $15 to $45 an hour. HA!"
