About Me

Just an Irish lad, trying to give people some insight as to my experiences. Hopefully this site isn’t a huge scam like Trustpilot.

I ordered delivery from Sainsburys online. Never again. For the premium prices you pay, one would assume you get premium service. Not true. It started when the delivery arrived. The groceries were obviously packed by an idiot. My bread was in the bottom of a bag with loads of tins thrown in on top. Needless to say my bread was smashed. Someone's beer bottles had broken, soaking everything in beer. My groceries were carelessly thrown around, evident by containers that were damaged and opened. With the virus around, I won't eat anything opened. When I called sainsburys to get a refund for the damaged items, I waited on the phone for FORTY SIX MINUTES before I was able to speak to someone, only for them to tell me that I should have refused the delivery. The person on the phone also suggested that I wasn't being truthful about the six items that were damaged and unacceptable. I was completely gob smacked by the treatment. After arguing for several minutes, the person finally said she would have someone call for my bank details to process the refund. I never received a call and never got my £12 refund. In complete contrast, Tesco is less expensive, and if I have a problem, I call and it's sorted in less than ten minutes. I'm not endorsing Tesco in this review. I'm just showing how other, less expensive stores, treat their customers.

I was looking for a business class flight from IAD to LHR and prices were very high. I found average prices between $8000 and $15000 for a one way flight! I went to the flight guru and they found me a business class flight with SAS for $1147. The same seat was advertised for $10,395 including tax on the SAS website. SAS doesn't have the greatest business class as they need to update the cabin, but it was a good flight none the less.

Amazon in the United Kingdom is very different from Amazon in the USA. The latter is governed by consumer protection laws, whereas the former is not. For example, I ordered a package of surgical masks for £21. After the order was placed, Amazon changed the seller of my order to a different seller that was selling an inferior version of the mask for less than half the price. My price didn't change, I was still charged £21 even though Amazon substituted an inferior product and they were getting it for a lower cost. When I confronted customer service, they told me I was getting what I asked for at the price I agreed to pay. They wouldn't accept the fact that the product wasn't the same. They told me if I didn't like it, then send it back. I did. I tried to buy masks again, figuring it was an isolated incident. It wasn't. The exact same thing happened. So I sent those back as well. I finally ordered from eBay. I got exactly what I asked for and wasn't scammed so they could keep more of my money.

If you think Trustpilot reviews are reliable, then think again. Trustpilot is a paid service that improves a company's rating and consumer perception. I have written many reviews with documentation to prove my claims and had them challenged and deleted, even when indisputable proof was supplied. The reason I am sure they are a scam is I was actually solicited on the phone to pay them to get a better rating, after I claimed a business on their site.

Most of the problems are in the site itself. Features do not work and there are errors all the time. For example excluding women from certain countries doesn't work. They can still see and contact you. Under your picture is your status. It can say "online", "busy", "working", etc. Depends on what you choose as your status. However, when you choose "Busy" for example, you can still receive chat requests. You are supposed to be able to choose "invisible" and you won't show up as being online... nope... It just changes your status to "invisible." You are still visible, but your status says "invisible." There are quite a few scammers and "ladyboys"... aka pre-op trans genders. Some are almost impossible to tell apart from real women. Cherry Blossoms is cheap compared to other sites, but you get what you get what you pay for... poor functionality and frustration. If you can put up with the crappy website, most of the women are legit. Just beware. If you want to try it, be sure to use PayPal for payment. It's easier to de-authorize payment on PayPal's site when you close your account. I've heard people who use credit cards are being billed for months after they have closed their account.

Be extremely wary of using the online store of this dishonest company. Their claim that you will...
