    I decided to check out some of their services, but all they did was take my money with nothing in return. Absolutely nothing.

    They would not respond to any of the numerous responses I sent to them, and now I have to go through my credit card company to deal with them. I gave them about 75 days to respond, nothing.

    Could you give us more detail, please? What service did you buy, etc.

    This is a link with their basic services. Not only did they not provide anything, but they have not responded to any attempt to contact them.

    I will contact their web host and any other necessary agencies to report them.

    Probably just someone sitting in their own home taking in money for as long as they can.

    Blech. Sorry to here about that, R.K., and good luck getting your $$$ back.

    Question: How did you here about them? Are they doing any marketing?

    I tried to use this service. They took my money without any problem, then they never provided anything. They did not reply to any of my emails or efforts to contact them.

    A shame there are so many scams out there.

    It is a shame. I do notice, when I go to the website in your link, that none of the photos/press releases/etc are newer than 2007. And the last contest they ran seems to have been in 2010.

    They might be a dead site. (Though if they're still taking money...)

    well, seems like they lived up to their name, then - that is if you're twice shy about trying such a service again.
