Yet another story of online fraud. I have purchased software named Spyhunter, online about an year ago from www.enigmasoftware.com and certainly not from www.iomatic.com. Surprise, surprise I receive a thank you e-mail:

Thank you for purchasing Registry Medic renewal.
This purchase entitles you to an entire year of free upgrades.
.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
Thank You,
Iomatic
http://www.iomatic.com

I shrug the e-mail but did not delete it. Then by routine check of my credit card activities I see a charge of $29.95 done by the www.iomatic.com for the renewal of software I have never downloaded from anywhere.

So I do not hesitate and contact them by the only means thru their web site (there is no phone number) and did not get any respond or explanation of the charges made to my credit card and how I could ever stop this automatic renewal.

I have already called the credit card and disputed the charge. The credit card representative wanted to solve the matter on the spot but apparently he hit a hard spot trying to contact them and let the things for latter. I requested replacement of the card with a new number at least to avoid the spread of the issue. No one knows who sells your information to whom nowadays.

This is for now. I hope the dispute will be in my favor. In between I have red many negative reviews for the www.iomatic.com (registry medic software).

Purchasing online will remain insecure no matter how many zillion legitimate transactions are going on as we speak.

I would like to write for a not very well known site of the Ronald McDonald Enterprise. It is about the Guest houses built near many children hospitals thruout the USA (as far as I know)

Our daughter was born in July 2006. Two days later she had very high temperature and instead of checking out she was rushed to the intensive unit. We wanted to breastfeed her and the only way was to find means to be near to the hospital at the time she was treated. The hospital she was born is about an hour without traffic from our home, so traveling was not an option. naturally a hotel was an option. Then we found out about the Ronald McDonald's houses. There was one on a walking distance to the hospital unit were our daughter was held.

The seed money for this establishment is given by the McDonalds Enterprises. The big chunk of the expenses is covered by private and non private donations. The cost to stay was like $40 or $50 per night. Against that you are getting room with two queen size beds, TV, Telephone, full bath, towels, toy gifts for kids and you name it. Beside that there is huge kitchen and dining area downstairs with guest designated shelves in the refrigerators to store purchased perishable food, many cooking spots with gas stoves and all the utensils. There is a pantry with free non perishable items like, cereal, canned fruit and vegetables, pasta, jelly, e.t.c. On top of everything three or four times during a week, there are volunteers preparing dinner for the families who stay there while their child is in the hospital.

There is also indoor and outdoor children playground.

I will remember my stay in the Ronald McDonald's House for the rest of my life. We had the help we needed in one of the happiest and the same time very difficult time of our lives.

Thank you Ronald McDonald!

To join the not very positive reviews for the hotels.com web site. After giving up on Alpharooms.com, I booked a hotel thru www.hotels by calling directly the toll free number, sometime in February, 2010. My order was for sea view superior room with double bed and sofa bed for a toddler.

Down the road www.hotels.com have sold my booking to www.travelnow.com. Travenow.com have "slightly" modified the booking information and at time of our arrival in the hotel we were told that our reservation is for room with two separate beds and a crib and no sea view. I did not try to contact hotels.com and travelnow.com and try to find were the link was broken.

After my arguments, lucky for us the hotel staff gave us something in between (no sea view) that worked out great for us.

The bottom line. be careful with www.hotels.com

The best shot seems to be to contact a particular hotel or hotel chain directly and maybe pay more and not get dissapointed at the time of the arrival.

Many radical and not usual media articles. One needs expertise to weed out of what is the truth and what is not. It is different type of conveying the political, economical and other issues

Most of their toys are wooden. Puzzles, puppets and dolls, arts and craft supplies, building blocks. I often buy their products for our child and for her friends on different occasions.

Italian restaurant located in Allendale, Nj. I used to work in Allendale and have had lunch there very often and occasionally dinner. The atmosphere is ambient ant rustic, the service is excellent and the food is like home maid. I have not tried their deserts and coffee thou.

There is no alcoholic beverages, but there is a liquor store almost next to the restaurant and it is allowed to bring your wine, beer and liquor. The glasses and the ice is on the restaurant.

www.Alpharooms.com

I had the misfortune to book a hotel by using the service of www.Alpharooms.com. It is a very easy to book and the prices are very tempting, but the things stop there. After wards there is no communication at all, nor by e-mail nor by phone. In fact there is a costumer service number you can call (very expensive), wait for a response and usually not get any live person. There is a little more luck when you call the numper for booking, but when the other site finds out you are calling to complain, ususally you get put back to the waiting line.

Their cancellation policy is also a ripoff because for +56 days cancellation you would be charged %20 of the amount paid.

My experience is: I booked on February 07; paid in full online for hotel, transfers and paper voucher. There was an automatic e-mail assuring the delivery of the paper voucher within 3 to 5 days. The next day I realized that I need to change something about the taxi transfers I needed and sent an iquiry for change. Then I found out how lousy is their costumer service.

I have sent six e-mails include one to their marketing manager ( I was lucky that I foung out his e-mail address, but this is another story) and spent I do not know how much time on the phone and the expenses with that without result

Then I contacted my Credit Card to see my options, because after all I did not know how favorable their cancellation works (you can do it online). From my Credit Card company I had the assurance that they are on my side in case of cancellation and dispute. I inquried a dispute of the charges an then I did the cancellation online on Feb 27, 2010. Today is March 19, 2010 I still do not have conformation of the canceled booking by Alpharooms nor refund.
