I am trying to block sends from kick starter offers. I have been ripped off 3/4 of the time. Now Kick starter is refusing to stop sending me offers. Most recent one has no way to unsubscribe. Do not put up money for these things. I did that and then the product kept getting delayed and then delayed 3 more times. Then there was the film, even sent a t-shirt and a bumper sticker. I tried to check it out but it disappeared without a trace taking my money. Rip offs 3/4 of the time is too much.

This company is terrible with customer service. I run 2 small websites as a volunteer. We have no staff. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE "FREE" TRIAL.

It cost me $350 because this company refuses to send out notifications that the free trial is ending. I never used their products. I checked their stuff out -- and that was it. You must have paid staff who will read all the fine print. Or mark your calendar.

The worst is the way customer support responds. They "gave" me an extra 6 months free! I wasn't using their product anyway. Giving me more of nothing was a low blow. Customer support also said that my credit score might be lowered if I pursue a fraud complaint with my credit card company.

These are unhealthy people. Very risky. Very unpleasant.

I don't have a proof of purchase. I do have the monthly withdrawal info on my credit card statements. I'll take a pic of one of them and attach here if I can edit this after submitting.

Tip for consumers: Do not get the free trial.

After ordering several different items through etsy.com I will not order any more. I did buy some really interesting jewelry from the artist who made them. However, you have to be careful about who you buy from. I found that too many items come from China but are advertised as "craft" or even "handmade". More than disappointing. I ordered a return address rubber stamp. I liked the design and it sounded like it was actually made by a real person, a designer. It arrived lacking a significant piece of information I had requested. Then they wanted to charge me more to fix their error. The 3 lousy letters were added but they look terrible. I would never pay 1/2 of what I did knowing that I was getting a stamp from a template churned out in China and emailed to the company. Very disappointing. I no longer have etsy.com on my ipad because of that and other similar flubs.

There are several problems with this site -- quality and size of merchandise is often purposely misleading and the shipping costs are outrageous. The cost for shipping is about 3 times what a legit site would charge. There is a tiny disclaimer about the size of the item based on the photo that says the photo may be enlarged 30X to see the detail. About the only thing you can be almost sure of is the size of watches. Everything else is in metric or carats with no consumer-friendly guidelines. The quality is questionable since the suggested manufacturer's retail is usually more than the item would cost at a local department store. Service is ok as long as you read all the fine print and are willing to pay non-bargain prices.

I stumbled on this site -- don't quite know how -- and it is an obvious fake. Supposedly for consumer support, there is nothing on the site about the product(s) supported. There is a stock photo of a nice woman phone operator. No phone number (available only to customers), an email support address which takes you back to the trdapp site. I believe that it puts tracking cookies in your computer. It's made to look as legit as it can with boxes to put in sensetive data and a coded verification box. If you stumble on this site make sure to clean your cookies all out of your computer. This is one to be avoided.
