Round one was flix123 , as the game progresses , or should I say ,digresses ,round two rolls out yet another scurrilous business practicer , Reeled.com. After discovering the theft by flix123, I took a look at my last 3 Visa statements online . Low and behold Reeled.com had gleeped onto my credit info and jumped on for a free ride . I made contact with them on June 23 2015 they acquiesced , sent me email complete with banking reference numbers stating I would be refunded $39.95 plus 95cents . June 26 they billed me again and I'm doing not snap, because I tread ever more closer to the buckle point , so once again I'm off to the bank to cancel and reissue my credit card , take the matter up with Visa as to what my legal options are and get in touch with the Better Business Bureau , ( Long Sigh). I shall keep the masses that deserve BETTER informed , OOOOHmmmm, oooohmmmmm .
I didn't sign up for their service! I don't even remember the site. I must of done a search for an old movie. Reel HD.com must of got my info. from my Internet cookies. I rarely put my name out there but never my bank account # to a site like that! I do buy on line from company I trust. Reel HD.com has charge me $39.95 + $1.20 international POS fee a month for at least 3 months. I got a overdraft letter from my bank on 07/27/2012 My online banking only shows the last 90 days so their maybe more charges. I will find out Monday when I pay my overdraft fee and put to that account. Let put a stop to ReelHD.com. Thank You
this is the most ridiculous site i have ever experienced !! 99 percent of the movies i never even heard of !! i signed up for it when i was searching a movie and it led me to them. after signing up guess what, absolutely NONE of the movies i searched were available. just paid a dollar to cancel. contacting better business bureau immediately !! scams run here do not sign up !!!
BRUTAL - scam site I did not even look at one movie. They have got over 150- 175 $US out of me, for a FREE 5 Day trial!! Do not enter in any information!!!! They also charge to cancel. What the hell are they even offering that justifies $35.00 a month. (I will never do another transaction for trial or without going through paypal.) Please write a review if you have been scammed to, Lets put these guys out of business.
They have just as crappy of movie selection as netflix and their movies do not stream well at all. Constantly waiting for videos to buffer. Have to pay for some movies and some movies don't even work.
Complete rip off! Their customer service is awful! The worst I have ever experienced. They steal from you and outsource their customer service. When you check your bank account and wonder why you are being charged $2.95 a month even though you have never watched a thing from this site it is alarming. Warn your teens! When you call customer service, the supervisor not only over talks you but hangs up on you as well. Stay away from this company, their practices are unethical. If there was less than a one star rating this company has definitely earned it!
This guys promised movies for free and now the keep on deducting money from my credit, free movies now has cost me R1000.00
If you just register with this scam do what I did and save your money: Freeze or Cancel your credit/debit card. It might not be too late as it takes a while for the money to leave your account. Call your bank before you call reelhd.com to complain. Tell your bank to not allow any payments towards this company. You might need to change your credit card altogether or else they might keep charging you anyway. That's what I did for a peace of mind.
Unfortunately they somehow managed to withdraw the money anyway even after I had cancelled my Debit Card. The bank compensated me though and they are going to look into this since it now became the bank's issue. My bank reassured me that there will be no more payments towards this company.
I went on the website putlocker.bz to watch a movie. Clicking on the option to watch the movie in HD gave me a message that I needed to register for a free account first. I accepted. Instead of starting an account with putlocker.bz I registered with reelhd.com. Apparently putlocker.bz is affiliated and receives payments for any victims they send to reelhd.com.
I thought that it was a good deal to register for $2.95 per month. Once I got in the "Premium Account" though I saw that the movie was not available. I thought that there was something wrong with their search in the beginning because they didn't have any movies that are worth watching. Only some old and forgotten movies that I doubt if anyone ever watches.
Horrible! Rip off! Buyer beware - never even heard of this site, come to find out they have been charging me $2.95/month for the past 10 months! Not a ton of money no, but if they are doing this to thousands of people - they are making quite a bit of money by ripping people off.
This is a Ripoff outfit.
Just know that i have contacted the FTC with all the below information and it appears the FTC are already aware of them and are going to break some bones real soon.
They have a chain of websites that have the same look and feel and
they basically create new domain names each time one of their domains gets too many complaints.
PushPlay.com, ReelHD.com, FilmLush.com, CinemaDen.com, ItsHD.com, MovieLush.com, FlixAddict.com, CinaMuse.com, ReelVidz.com, Cineble.com, Moviease.com
The difference between the sites is minor to non existent.
Its a simple tactic , you guys are complaining about ItsHD.com while tomorrow it will be named filmlush.com , if flimlush.com has too many complaints then they create CinemaDen.com etc etc..
So basically while you guys complain about ItsHD.com they already moved on to create a different website name that will get all the flack from that point.
Here is how the scam works:
1.They have an affiliate network called "Affiliatebuzz": www.affiliatebuzz.com.
Affiliates are website owners (in this case movie websites) that put the ads for affiliatebuzz websites (such as ItsHD.com) on their domains. Usually they have banners aimed to trick customers showing movies still in theater and some kind of "download now" button , a video that starts and requests you to register or some other form of trickery. Each time an affiliate brings a customer (a sucker) they pay him 10$ - 16$ per registration so these affiliates are highly motivated tp continue doing this.
2.The customer(you) visiting the affiliate site clicks on a banner or whatever and gets sent to on of the affiliatebuzz sites such as ItsHD.com thinking he will get the movie he clicked on.
3.The website tells the customer it's just a free trial and the customer, thinking he will get the movie he initially clicked on registers for the free trial.
The terms of the sale are very shady (on purpose) making the customer not really aware what he is actually buying and what it will actually cost him.
4.After registering it is very hard to cancel. This part i am sure all the good people in this forum are aware of so i will not elaborate.
Statistically many of you will not notice the charges for a while or are not aware of your consumer rights (like chargebacks) and this is how this outfit survived so far.
But good news! blatant scams like this NEVER last long and frankly I'm surprised they didn't get their merchant account suspended and a major lawsuit up until now.
But the FTC is working on these guys .
The way the FTC operates, they take a while to gather all the evidence and they do it quietly. Once they are done they hit fast and hard with a millions of dollars lawsuit backed by top law firms. It doesn't matter is the site is in US,UK or whatever, the FTC has very long hands.
So stay tuned because justice is on it's way.
And sorry for all of the people who got suckered in by this fraud.
they make this huge fuss about guaranteeing they will not charge your CC then they charge you $1 and proceed to send an email detailing how they are about to charge you $39 a month. You go to their cancellation page and it charges yet another $.95 to cancel you. Nothing but thieves.
ReelHD is a scam. I got charged after signing up for a free trial. Thank God I nabbed it early. I cancelled my credit card straight away so hey won't touch a cent more. I feel so silly having given my credit card details over to so many sites to try and watch Game of Thrones. Lesson learnt!! Be safe on the internet everyone! :)
I was just about to sign up with them but your reviews have alerted me. Thank you for sharing your experience!
This site is a total scam, Firstly they charge during their free trial. Secondly, when you try to cancel online there is another fee to do it.I got charged around thirty bucks after the first five days. I didn't realize that so many of us could be duped but this is somewhat short of a scam/ponzi scheme its ridiculous. So basically i had to call and cancel on the phone but i was still getting charged. I notified my credit card company of the scam and they cut off the charges. total SCAM SCAM SCAM DON'T SIGN UP AT ALL. AND IF YOU DO BEWARE OF MULTIPLE CHARGES AND LOTS HEADACHES.
