This is getting to the point of being ridiculous. These penny auction sites are designed to be a gambling site and to make money off people just like casinos. Even worse, venture capitalists are getting in on this game and investing big money into these sites. Makes sense I suppose, all of vegas is one big company now. I think the bad part is that these websites are just not regulated. At least the nevada gaming is regulated by government.

Let's get real folks...getting a hot russian bride is a pipe dream that we all have on occasion, but that is all it is...a pipe dream. Stay away from sites like this and read this article how their game of making money of americans really works

The dream is simple, a hot russian girl under the age of 22 and she doesn't speak english. Many men would pay thousands to marry one of those for awhile. Heck, even I would consider it. But it is a trap and a scam. My buddy got taken for thousands. read here how they milk you for all you are worth

We all have seen these blue shuttles taking people to and from the airport and they are a pretty good deal. Let me tell you the problem I had using it and maybe it can help you have a better experience with them. I tried for an hour to buy a ticket online and for some reason it wouldn't go through, but it took my credit card. I then called them and the lady on the phone was very nice and I paid using my credit card to make the reservation. She kept saying if I pay now rather than to the driver, I would get 2 dollars off the ticket. While 2 dollars isn't much, it is better than nothing, so I said sure. I get an email confirmation and I am thinking all is good. When I get off the plane and go to the supershuttle booth they say "where is your voucher?" I say voucher? I paid online. They give me a look of confusion. They insist on a voucher or they won't let me on the bus or I need to pay again. 30 min later after numerous phone calls to management they find I did indeed pay in advance and did not need a voucher. Moral of the story, if you use Supershuttle DO NOT PAY IN ADVANCE!!! make the reservation and just pay when you get there like everyone else.

Pretty legit site that sells wow gold and they are a pretty big company despite the lame URL name. I bought gold from them and they actually delivered it within 24 hours. Prices are a little steep but you do actually get the gold. Very professional as well. You might want to also check IGE.com for their gold prices.

I have been watching crackle ever since sony took it over and I have to say it has much improved. I would have given it a meh awhile ago but now crackle really does deliver fun entertaining content. Because they are owned by sony you do get real hits like Men in black and you don't have to worry about downloading a virus or malware like on other sites that advertise free internet tv and movie downloads. Crackle is really free internet tv and online movies.

They do advertise original content but I haven't really got into any of their original shows. I have watched sports illustrated swimwear models show over and over though at work :)

Give this a try if you are interested in watching movies online for free. Connection speed is great and their video quality is so much better than what those free internet tv websites claim to deliver.

Love the design of the site and the girls are smoking hot. But don't be fooled by the nice website. These guys make tons of money selling the dream of a hot russian bride to unsuspecting americans willing to lose their money.

I was doing another search for movie downloads and this site keeps popping up online for free internet tv. Here is the problem, it isn't free, they offer a free trial but then once you give them your credit card it is game over for you. Getting movies for free or streaming copyright movies is always a skeptical thing because clearly they cannot really be advertising free blockbuster hollywood movies without some sort of catch. The catch in this case is that you are directed instantly to really sign up for reelhd.com website. Go ahead hit join and see for yourself. Then read the reviews of reelhd.com here

http://www.sitejabber.com/reviews/www.reelhd.com

If you are still searching for free internet tv then read this article on how they scam you by downloading viruses and malware to your computer and how they don't even host the illegal movies themselves.

You want free TV...check out hulu at least they are legit and you won't get a PC virus.

Okay, how often in the history of sitejabber have you guys seen so many positive reviews within a 24 hour period on a single website. Just a LITTLE suspicious if you ask me. I will stop flagging them as spam because I think we can all read between the lines...

and on yelp they are giving away ipads for good reviews. I wonder if that violates yelps terms and conditions... someone should email yelp....

Netflix has greatly improved their selection of on demand download content in the recent months. I was going to cancel but they really stepped up their game to compete with apple and is worth the 9 dollars per month.

These sites never cease to amaze me in how they convince people they are just participating in a regular auction. If you spend you money and only have a slim chance of winning..that is a lottery. An unregulated lottery. Read about how everyone lost their money here

I like how they advertise that their software download is virus free...and of course only costs $49.95 for what they call unlimited free internet TV. Watching movies or online tv for free but of course only after you pay them $49 dollars is just a waste of your hard earned money.

First of all just read this article here which describes how there really is no such things as premium free internet tv.

http://www.pcworld.com/article/122857/movie_download_scams.html

it describes how you pay websites money for unlimited tv and then end up with pretty much nothing. You do get channels from all over the world but many times these are not the premium channels that you are wanting to watch.

If you must watch movies and tv online, do yourself a favor and just see what hulu and netflix have to offer in terms of streaming tv. Otherwise if you are looking for hollywood movies and tv shows and want to learn more about how people share these things online, read my review on vuze.com. Do a sitejabber search for vuze.com

SELL OUT!!! I can't believe they started to become a groupon just to make a quick buck. They couldn't figure out how to make money on their own by selling ads to business or doing what the news called extortion, so they copied groupon? If you want to find a good place to eat go with Michelinguide.com.

SCAM alert. Chinese gold farmers who don't really exist will steal your money and never really deliver your gold. If you want real gold stick with guy4game or ige or one of the more well known sites that is run by a company not some guy out of a box in china. world of warcraft gold at these low rates is never real.

Now with football season approaching I bet these scam jersey sites are getting all of our hard earned US dollars. OEM jerseys? cmon guys...it seems like you have an OEM fake software site and now you have moved on to OEM fake jerserys for NBA and NFL. Free shipping internationally? you expect people to believe they will wire you money and you will ship them for free an official NFL jersey from China? Stay clear of this site.

WHAT a SCAM! how is it an auction when the timer counts down to zero and then goes back up over and over again??? I paid $150 for a TV and then ran out of money to keep bidding on it and then some dude comes in and wins it out of the blue?? How do I not know that isn't a swoopo friend? Auction my A$$. Call it what it really is...swoopo stealing your money.

20 bucks for an "authentic" NBA jersey? These things retail for $180 usually and I know first hand the actual wholesale cost of an NBA jersey is typically over $60 so I'n not too sure how these can really be authentic. Maybe really good copies for only twenty bucks and in the end I guess it doesn't matter. You won't probably get that hologram symbol on the tag, but if you are just going to have people think you bought the real thing then I suppose knock yourself out and support these fraudsters.

Travel and penny auction scam all rolled up into one website. It seemed like someone thought.."what else besides ipads can we sell to unsuspecting consumer in a penny auction...how about a vacation" and now we have offandaway. Yet another penny auction / gambling site.

Maybe some people have made money writing online but that is always a little tricky. I think most of the money goes to the sites that offer these services to writers. They are the real winners. But out of all of the sites that do this at least xomba claims to give about 50% of the ad revenue to the writer. But it is tough to really tell if they are really going to do that or not. Would be nice to be able to install an independent page counter or your own google ad words on the site to hold them accountable. xomba is still a decent service and deserves to be in my work at home list of websites.
