Scam artists, constantly trying to trick regular customers into signing up with a 'free trial' and the option for opting out only in small print, so they will sign up perhaps without even realising, forget to cancel it and end up paying absurd prices every month for rubbish services.
For example, trying to navigate the on demand service and it takes ages to load anything for a start, I find the film I want and Amazon says 'you own it', great! Except that was a lie to trick me into downloading the Disney plus app, which then tried to trick me (in the small print) into signing up at an additional 5.99 per month! Cheeky, dishonest, money-grubbing scum, both Amazon and Disney. Avoid at all costs. Sky aren't perfect either but are a lot more up front and honest than these renegades, and the service actually works smoothly and doesnt rely on rip-off third party apps.

Tip for consumers:
Watch out for the small print which tricks you into a monthly subscription!

Wish displays one price when you are browsing items, but when you select the item, add it to your basket, or proceed to the checkout, Wish increases the price. Obviously this is extremely dishonest and greedy of them. Even if you do as they suggest and 'buy now to lock in this price' the price still goes up, they lie to their customers to try and trick them into paying more. This is how con artists operate so that is exactly what Wish are.
Not only that, but when I went back to check on my order because it was taking weeks to arrive, I found that the primary item I had ordered had not even been dispatched, when I contacted support they didn't bother speaking to me or even give me that option (presumably because they knew I would complain) so just fobbed me off with their automatic robot assistant, which provided no help at all, and told me the item was out of stock and I would have to order an alternative item at no extra cost, they did not offer me a refund but that is what I will be getting from them. At no point did Wish bother to contact me about the problem with my order, pressumably hoping I would just forget about it and let them keep my money for nothing! Greedy, lying, dishonest scumbags. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.

Just another trashy 'news' site full of clickbait and fake news illustrated by misleading photos taken from popular culture, and annoying 'articles' which require you to repeatedly click through to the next page (this gets them extra add revenue). Total crap, avoid at all costs.
