About Me

Hey how U doin?

How I Can Help

One of my biggest passions in life is Computers/I.T. My daytime job is as an Internet Entrepreneur and so I have an understanding of how website business models should really be like. And so reviewing sites that are informative and useful to surfers worldwide is something that I would love to do here. I try to provide brutally honest reviews so there is a real knowledge of the website. I do have my own few sites, one of them listed below, please feel free to check it out if you like.

Surfing the net, music, movies, martial arts, reading, watching TV...etc

Needless to say for Jackie Chan fans its a good online store. Got lots of different stuff from dvds, to jackie's clothing lines, mugs, stamps, etc. Ive to admit though, whilst searching for the classic jackie dvd's, i find that the price on this one, is very expensive. You can get the same dvd's cheaper on play or amazon. But for the rest of the products, its a great store.

Really good one to get a few basic chinese symbols for certain vocabulary and phrases. Not the most extensive like chinese-word.com but certainly useful.

As a regular customer of Tesco groceries, I decided to invest my credited points worth £20 on Tesco Direct shopping partner site. However the site would not allow the voucher codes and after several phone calls and a week of waiting still I did not manage to get the credit off. I did shop for items worth £27 which meant I would have to pay only £7 but the cost of phone calls resulted in me spending £47 for the same items including the discount. The customer service and the manger refused to credit me for the inconvenience as well or to refund the call costs. So I would never recommend anyone to spend the voucher points earned on Tesco groceries on the partner site Tesco Direct. Stay well away from that part of exchanges. Extremely useless. Apart from that Tesco Direct is as good as you would imagine.

Good cheap catalogue site for home products. They offer a lot of deals for home products and is good quality. I even got a free £5 gift voucher recently which helped get a cool freebie :)
Check it out if you like buying from catalogues or cheap sites for home products.

They offer great email saving software app which can be used on both android/mac and is very cool. I have not yet had a chance to use the software app but its Free which is great bonus. Also its a very useful app cuz it saves emails in any of hotmail, yahoo and others.

Good site for downloading movies and music. I checked it out initially to get some movies but realised that the site doesnt have that kinda extensive and cool movies at all. But on the whole wasnt too bad, considering that they give you free mb for download for first 14days and you can actually download a few music or a movie to keep permanently even if you unsubscribe.

They are good but I found them unprofessional and not so flexible for their investors and I left the bank shortly after joining them. I wont recommend their savings or any other product just cuz their staff is very negative in dealing with their clients and had so much problem to even get a card account although I am a good investor with excellent credit.

I saw the tv ad for this site and had a silver chain which i wanted to cash in. I sent them the silver chain and they sent me a cheque of £0.06 pence in return for it. My chain had cost me $25 when i had bought it initially, it was sterling silver and im sure worth more than 6pence. Had to call them 4 times to get the chain back as well, their customer service is appalling. They talk complete rubbish that they offer great price for gold or silver. Dont use them at all. You might as well give your jewelllery free to someone as gift.

A bad scam website where they advertise home based jobs for people all over the world. They offer different types of work like ad posting, data input, etc and also they offer a maxmoney investment scheme where they advertise that you get 60%-90% monthly interest returns on your investment. I invested $25 in this scheme and to this day have not received any money like i was promised. Have sent many emails to them regarding this, but have received no response at all. I would really like to see them in prison and get my $25 back. Anyone who is looking for home based jobs, please stay away from this one. You will just lose all your money cuz they always ask for deposit.

Scammer survey site. Doesnt pay you any money and deletes your profile after sometime conveniently. It was a complete waste of time.
Please dont sign up ever if youre lookin for a survey site.

Offers online world TV software for viewing international channels. Is a complete scam cuz you pay for the software but when you put in the product key it wont work and sending emails to the customer service wont be answered ever nor would the money be ever refunded. So use different more reliable ways to watch PC TV software. Stay away.

Dont download anything from this site however much the screensavers or themes look appealing to you. Complete waste of time and a load of adware/malware/spyware for you pc. Will take a long time for you to uninstall and remove the tracking cookies of the adware as well.

This is the second mysteryshopping site that is a scam. I saw an ad in gumtree last week offering mysteryshopping job in UK. Again I was offered the job when I applied and was given my first assignment of Western Union. I was to send £2500 to a person somewhere and get £300 for this assignment. In all her communication, she seemed professional cuz she did mention the company name unlike the other one. Luckily this was the same week when I had the first bad scam with aboutfacecorp.com and so I sent this lady a reply and told her to send me money via paypal but not cheque cuz then i can report to paypal as well bout them if the money doesnt clear. Apparently she neva replied after that which shows that it was a scam. Again the amount of money being offered is prob the biggest giveaway to the fact that this is a scam job.

Absolutely rubbish. I registered with them to stop all the nuisance sales calls i get and i still get them. Ive rejoined them and spoken to them but no change.

Rubbish site for publishing your ads. They delete your ads when and how they like and give you no reason apart from some technical failure. Its complete waste of time to repost all the ads over and over again and see them deleted. Ive spent so much time on this site and yet have had no visitors or sale as well.
Never use it unless you want to waste your time.

Well I was searching for some flexible jobs on the net and I saw an ad for mysteryshoppers required in London. I applied and got the job and as my first assignment, I had to report on the Western Union shop near my area. My salary was going to be £400 for every assignment which is great money (thats why I agreed) and was sent a cheque for £3000. I had to send the remaining £2600 to an individual who's details they had provided me in philippines. Apparently, it was good friday weekend when they sent me the cheque and we had 2 consecutive bank holidays last 2 weeks cuz of the royal wedding as well. So my bank said its gonna take some time to clear the cheque. The boss lady was very demanding that the report be done on fast and didnt seem to get that i don't control the bank and way they operate in clearing cheques. Anyways, I just found out from the bank that the cheque had been bounced and also now they are investigating possible theft of money on the person who sent me the cheque. Luckily im in the clear cuz i didnt really do anything. Also when i sent the bosslady an email to inform her of the bounced cheque, the communication just stopped completely. Shes since then (which is like a 4 days) not replied to me and i don't think she ever would. In all her communication however, she had given details of her name and USA Atlanta addie but neva revealed the sitename. Cuz of my extra superior scaminvestigating skills i managed to track down this site which has her details and offers the mystery shopping jobs. When you look at the site, it seems all very professional and cool but obviously it all a big scam. I realise even more of this as a scam cuz all the mysteryshopping companies offering jobs are paying around £20-£50 per assignment and i was going to get £400. Obviously she wanted me to send the £2600 out of my account which neva happened. I just hope that the bank catches them and does somethin about it. Just another craigslist scammer to be honest. And there's even more to this today, i got an email from a girl who wants to get with me and when i check out the ip address of the girl (from the email), damn she uses the same ip as the mysteryshopper scammer and same location in america (sunnyvale california) and same internet provider(yahoo/inktomi). Just different name and different yahoo id. I can't believe there is so much scam going on now in the net. This is just one of the mysteryshopping company that has approached me which is a scam, i found another one last week from gumtree. check my review for that supposedly professional and famous site of UK.

British Gas

Ive neva used them as my energy provider but theyre the one of the most appalling and unprofessional company of UK. Before I moved into my flat, another tenant was living there and he used britishgas. Its been 5years since hes moved out, and i still keep getting letters at my address under his name and account. Ive made several calls to them to inform them that the person doesnt live here for 5years and to stop sending me mails. Ive forwarded over 50mails by post to return to the guy at his new address but they seem to neva get it. They still send their engineer to check my gas supply every year and Ive told him every year the same thing, that i don't use them and theyve got to delete the details for the last 5years. I just can't believe how unprofessional they are. Its the most simplest thing to delete the account if the person has moved on or chase him whereva he lives as this kinda info is readily available anyway. But they can't do this one little simple thing. Im just glad i don't use them as a supplier. Neva can believe such appalling stupid service.

I used qype to advertise my 2 sites. Initially i was a free member and then their sales manager kinda convinced me to join on 1 month's trial as paid premium member.It was agreed that after the end of month, we would review the situation and see how the advertisment has worked for me in terms of visitors to my sites and sales as a result. I was to continue with the payment further for minimum 6months term after this end of month review or to cancel the further payments depending on the results. Unfortunately qype ad got me only 2 visitors to my site in the whole month and at the end of the month i cancelled my direct debit with them. They called me up and maintained that i made an agreement with them for a year and not 1 month and they want money for the whole year instead. The sales manager had failed to write the real 1month trial in the agreement and they never really sent me any written documents. Theyre now chasing me for the collection of the whole year of payment which I shouldn't have to pay. So beware that their sales managers will say anything to just get you signed up and will not actually document it and then you will get charged for whole year instead. Very unprofessional company. Apparently they saw my review here and decided to just cancel my membership and forget bout the money and wanted me to delete my review here. So ive changed my rating now to a little more positive than initial.

This is a site similar to onlinehomejobs.com and probably managed by the same scammer who has nicked much money from many innocent Indian people on lure of small form-filling or data input jobs done at home online. This has been complained to the criminal investigation bureau for these sites and the owners/managers. Please be warned not to be fooled by any investment schemes that they offer as well, this is how they take the money and you never see it back. Ive lost £25 on the scheme once in the past and so know from personal experience, wont see the money back nor get any responses from the owner/managers. Its a complete fake scammer site just like dozens of their sites which they change in domain names and ip address to avoid detection. Please stay away.
