WATCH33 - Additional writing - Posted on Nov 19, 2009

I understand this writing may jeopardize my credibility. I place this my writing in front of an old review since SiteJabber does not allowe writing a fresh review from same account for a same web site, let me say this. I am not Watch33.com costumer and I did not have personal experience with their products offered or business practice.

I read or at least glance almost everything posted on Site Jabber. I have read the first mostly negative reviews and got more involved and started my research about Watch33.com after the post on SiteJabber written by Mr. Matt Silversides was removed and there was an array of positive posts afterwards. I started sending e-mails and on Nov 16, 2009 wrote a review about Watch33.com. After a while thru my Sitejabber account I received messages from Mr. Matt Silversides regarding my review and pointing to aspects and specifics of the online watch retail business that I did not know and probably will not fully understand since I am not in the business.

I would like to post them but it will be against the rule of the site

That what I said on Nov 16, 2009 is true and is based on information provided by watch manufacturers I have contacted, but then I realized that I was trying to "play god" and I am not. Mr. Sirverside's messages also made me start thinking of how little I know about the specifics of the on line watch and retail sale and resale. Off topic but relevant People shop on e-Bay.

In the future I will make more research and read in full everything posted on a web site such as: waranties, terms and conditions ... if I decide to post a review.

************** Posted on Nov16, 2009 *************

Everyone who loves/hates or still follows watch33.com reviews.

In attempt to find more about watch33.com I looked the web sites of Swiss Army, Swatch Group, TAG Heuer, Tissot, Cartier and Omega. Some of the watch brands listed on watch33.com

I wrote e-mails to Swiss Army, Swatch Group, Tissot, Cartier and Omega with the question if the www.watch33.com is affiliated to them.

I browsed and compared randomly watches on display on watch33.com with these on the official factory web sites I visited.

Here are my findings so far:

1. Swiss Army www.swissarmy.com/Pages/Home.aspx I searched for the watches with factory numbers 24053, 24115, 24134 and 24141 which appear on the watch33.com list and found out that all of them are discontinued models. I also sent an e-mail to costumer service. The answer: watch33.com is not authorized Swiss Army watch dealer.

2. Swatch Group www.Swatch.com - Sent an e-mail and representative of Swatch Group wrote me back that wtach33.com is not authorized dealer of their watch brands.

3. Other watch brands as a part of Swatch Group can be checked on http://www.swatchgroup.com and include Omega and Tissot.

4. Cartier - http://www.cartier.com/ - sent an e-mail and representative of Cartier wrote me back that wtach33.com is not authorized dealer of their watch brands and Cartier would not cover watches sold by them.

5. TAG Heuer www.TAGHeuer.com - I could not locate watch33.com as a TAG.Heuer authorized dealer in the list provided by TAG Heuer web site then I called 1(866) 260 0460 costumer service telephone. The answer was TAG Heuer does not support watch33.com.

I wish the future reviews about watch33 to be positive. I wish good luck to Watch33 in getting under better spotlight and their strive for decent costumer service. Time heals everything and as the developers of this site have cited, negative reviews also help a good business from time to time.

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.

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 have purchased SpyHunter software online one year ago. Subsequently I removed it from the computer because it did not do me any good. As many other Spyware mallware programs I have tried it runs not needed checks and declares many infections and then "cleans" them. My computer continues to be sluggish and I have a lots of problems. The bottom line the SpyHunter was totally useless. I did not even try to get money back from enigmasoftware.com

About a month ago the credit card I have used to purchase the SpyHunter was charged for the renewal of software I have never installed on my computer by a company named www.iomatic.com for reneval of a software named Registry Medic. I looked the statements of all my credit cards for the Summer of 2009 and found out that the only software I have purchased online was from www.enigmasoftware.com. This made the connection. Plus enigmasoftware.com has in its line of products software named Registry Medic. I could not find if these two companies are business related but I am sure www.enigmasoftware.com have provided my credit card information to iomatic.com.

Do not buy from Enigmasoftware!

Update: The site has seized operation.

I came across to this site when looking for a job for a friend. We sent the resume and there was respond Immediately. There was invitation for an interview the only requirement was to submit a credit report prepared trough the suggested link http://freecreditscore-17.com. That raised the flag to begin with. then I visited lordensllc.com and it happened to be located in Panama. The contact number
Lordens, LLC
LordensLLC.com
Phone number: 1 (312)-857-4314 has Illinois area code. Random check of their postal addresses like 820 Franklin RD., Maywood, NJ 07607 with google map did not yield result, Park Ave in Manhattan must be South or North. We did not try any further, but my strong belief is that is one more scam web site preying on people who are looking for a job.

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.

I hope my posts are helpfull

My posting is about the advertisings for work from home posted as a links to all the major web sites like CNN.com, AOL.com, MSNBC.com, Yahoo,com..... I assume that now a days you can find them everywhere on the Web. They have infested the Internet.

The usual scheme is that against a minimal amount $1.97 they will send you materials for work from home using the Google engine. The titles are endless but the pattern of the sites tells me that the source is one.

To subscribe you give your personal data and a Credit Card number of course.

There is very well written Disclaimer or Terms of Conditions. The developers of the scheme know that a lot of people will not read the fine prints or will not notice them or because of language barrier will not fully understand. And this is the way the scheme has been working for a very long time. My brief researach on the web shows that it has been going for at least two (2) years.

The subscriber ends up automatically subscribed to several "services" with monthly charges ranging from $7.75 to $79.95 until canceled. There is a grace period form two (2) to fourteen (14) days to cancel prior the 'contract' and the Credit card charges start.The cancellation is a painful and agrevating process. I spent half a day to individually unsubscribe all four (4) 'services' I had given permission to be enrolled.

I felt stupid but also I got 'educated' only with losses of $1.97 + $0.05 CC intrenationall transaction fee, the time I spent on the phone and whatever nerve cells I have lost.

I have used orbitz.com for flight look up and booking two times this year comparing to other similar sites and found out that for my flight destinations it worked out very well to me considering, price, travel start and end time, travel time length, number of transfers (if any), length of layover, so I do not always look for the cheapest, but usually I get very close to the lowest prices out there, considering all other parameters I am interested as well..

I do not have any experience for other than flight arrangements with orbitz.com

Please make sure that no other malware remover programms are on your computer, because in general they 'compete' with each other.

Before installing this one I uninstalled all the others by using the Control Panel. Unfortunatelly one of them the CA Internet Security Suite which I downloaded for free being Optonline.net costumer gave me very hard time. This is a long story thou.
