Memory Foam Pillows Scam on TeamBuy from iSkinMedix

Two deals featured by TeamBuy from iSkinMedix in September 2011 turned to be a scam. Customers placed orders months ago, but have not received anything yet. TeamBuy does not provide refunds to everyone giving some excuses or not responding to consumers at all. Instead of making things right, TeamBuy became the same scam as iSkinMedix letting thousands of their customers down…

TeamBuy does not have any kind of promises like other group buying websites like Groupon, DealFind, WagJag. Maybe it’s OK for TeamBuy not to stand for their own customers? No promises, no guarantees… Let scam going on… It’s that easy…

Complaint on Oral-B Toothbrush from XSV 360 and DealTicker

Beware of scams from XSV 360 and Dealticker! I purchased what was advertised as Oral B brushes – 12 for $34 inclusive of shipping and taxes – from Dealticker. Dealticker “deal” was supposedly to submit a “Voucher” on XSV 360 website. According to XSV 360, the voucher or coupon holder was to please “allow 24-28 hours after a deal has ended” before trying to redeem a coupon, and to “allow 7 days for delivery”. After almost 2 weeks, the status of my shipping was still showing “processing”, and half a dozen e-mails to XSV 360 and to Dealticker were all unanswered…

But one of the latest deals showed really unacceptable support from DealFind with their fake “32GB SDHC Memory Cards Class 10 Powered by Toshiba”…

World Wide Connect Calling Cards Complaint

Trueler has received complaint on World Wide Connect Calling Cards ( purchased on one of the daily deal websites –
Initial investigation showed that it is a fresh website created for featuring on daily deal websites, and itself is very suspicious. As a potential customer I would never buy any services from them and as a daily deal site (if I were one of them) I would definitely NOT advertise World Wide Connect Calling Cards.

Holographic Energy Bands, Bracelets and Watches Scam

Many online stores like Power Balance, Amazon, BeBalanced Products are selling so called Hologram or Energy bracelets, necklace, watches, bands with magic features as they claim.
