When I was just shy of the age of 13, I came across this website and decided to give it a try. Everything went smoothly for a few years until the upcoming decision to change the whole layout of the website caused a huge stir, with MANY Meezers being against the idea because Classic Meez had many perks, which include games that reward you with coins to spend in the Meez Maker so you could doll up your avatar to your liking, rooms that had all-around better features, options to filter room listings via categories, and a discipline system appropriate for a website that advertises as PG-13. They even added a feature that let you add a friend's avatar alongside you on your profile for a few thousand coins (rip-off, I might add as you never went on the profiles as often to cost that much). Soon after the feature a friend option was implemented, Meez decided to release some of the Beta Meez features (from my memory), which removed the feature and didn't refund anyones' coins. The layout change in the Meez Maker also removed animations and backgrounds, which no one received a coin refund for those, either, but they did promise that they were going to be adding the animations and backgrounds at a later time.
Well, a year or two goes by and Beta Meez finally becomes the main layout (with a few tweaks) with the explanation that this new layout was much less vulnerable to being hacked than Classic Meez, along with other promises, but they were very incorrect; not only were the promised Meez Maker animations and backgrounds never added, the filter feature that helped keep your search between public and private rooms was removed, the games were removed, as well as many other features that made site navigation easier, but the new website was getting frequent hack attacks; more than Classic ever did.
Time went on with many complaints from the long-time Meezers and the hack attacks got more frequent, with many popping into the forums to offer some frustrating, yet entertaining time in between their hack attempts.
The summer of 2017 started Meez's downfall, which could have been caused by the constant hack attacks, poor attitudes from supervisors (Glassdoor employee reviews), or the from the CEO's unannounced surrender of the company.
It is rumoured that the employees completely abandoned the website unannounced around August of 2017 because many abuse reports went unanswered, Admins suddenly stopped doing their "meet the Admins" events, many emails to the support staff were ignored, and porn bombarded the forums for hours with no bother to remove it, which many lewd posts disappeared within minutes in the past. All of this wouldn't have bothered me because the negative aspect of the way they handle their businesses will forever be a tarnish in their resumes, but what got me was the fact that everything else was let to the dogs (so-to-speak) except for the VIP perk payment options. The VIP payment option page was kept in tip-top shape and a vast majority of Meezers had money successfully taken out of their bank accounts, but the rest of the website couldn't hold its own. Everything was also kept hush-hush when it came to what was going on; if they were updating, planning a shutdown, or trying to fix their vulnerable website.
Well, to conclude this review, I honestly feel that the developers of Meez.com scammed many clueless Meezers out of money starting in August of 2017. I have stated previously that they would not give any updates on what they were doing with the website to repair the damage done by hackers on their website and ignored emails and they also had no problems making sure that the money portion of the website was in perfect working order, but many Meezers paid for a service that they did not receive the promised perks for as the website was abandoned by the developers. If you swallow your pride and make a decision to shutdown your business, that's less money for your pocket if you have a payment option in place. This business was struggling financially and let the hackers ransack the website because what better excuse is there to not refund your customers than to blame hackers for all of your problems while you're anticipating your website's domain contract to expire on said date?
