There is nothing such as free legal consulting. This forum is a waste of time. People who answer are judge mental and they don't provide quality legal information related to a question.
If you have a legal problem in france, go to a website where you can talk to a real lawyer. Don't waste your time looking for a free legal consulting, you will not find it.

It is too early to give 5 stars. I would need to get my money back to see if I can trust them; I can see that many employees are from Lithuania. This country is like a fruit that needs to ripen.

Epayments.com blocked all transfers from and to epayment accounts. Customers can't make bank transfer or use their epayment prepaid mastercard. In other words, customers have to pay EPayments mistakes.
I advise not to trust this company otherwise you can find yourself in trouble. The more you will cash in money on you Epayments account and the more you will get exposed.
PLus, epayments is blacklisted by Paxum.

I posted a job which was a google extension. I needed half a letter size of code. One gentleman applied for the job. I have suggested $30. He agreed on the price for coding this chrome extension.
Then, he asked me to chat on skype. I gave him my skype account. On Skype, he asked me to pay more money for the project. I said no and I stopped here.
I am not a pro of coding chrome extension but I am a pro in Javascript. It took me 8 hours to code the extension myself.
Then, I discovered it wasn't possible to get my money back. I was happy I only spent $30. I only lost $30
So, you may think I am stingy. However, If I would have spent $200, who say that I would have had something in return? I would have likely lost $200 in guru.com

This is by fat the best website for SEO jobs. I used by the past, Fiverr, Blackhatworld, peopleperhour and legiit. None of them is as good as seo clerks. FOr example, at blackhatworld people tried to scam me, they wanted me to pay 280 US dollars for a blog that has no incoming links.
At Seoclerks, it is cheap and the people deliver their job. It is very seious.

I paid 150 euros, and I expected their service to be reliable. Their server shut down 3 times and then I decided to stop my subscription. They have only one server and when the server is down, visits aren't recorded. So, In the course of 4 months, the first day of lost stats, I said ok it can happen, the second time, i said ok, the third time, I decided to unsubscribe.
I contacted the support. The defense of the support was: "but you know, even google face this problem with server." /// I didn't try to argue. It was just not acceptable.
So, taking into account the reliability of their service and the pricing, I would not recommend to subscribe to statcounter.

First of all, this forum is a mess and it is full of advertisement. Then, when you ask a question people pretend to answer but they don't add any value. This forum is packed with trolls. They pretend to know and be expert. They pretend to be winners and in fact, they know nothing and are unhelpful. BHW is a big waste of time.
Advertisement on this forum is like burning money. I is extremely expensive and in fact, the visitors of this forum aren't buyers. They are code kiddies, hacker wanabes. It is not interesting at all.

Tip for consumers: Now, you can find what you are looking for on the internet when you google it. Avoid links to BHW.

First of all, I thought it was a easy test system. I order several kits. I wanted my liver and kidney tested. First of all, I want to say, my skin is hypersensitive. I ordered a letsgetchecked test kit because I was looking for a non painful test. Then, I discovered I was wrong. The more i looked into it and the more it was not ok. First of all, they ask you to prick a finger, this is one of the most sensitive part of the body. Then, you must massage your finger over and over again, to obtain enough blood for the test sample.
They suggest to use several lancets and prick you several times, if you can't get it. This is exactly my case. I think I would have needed to prick myself several times. Then it is your job to extract enough blood from your body to pour the blood sample tubes.
After several tries, I understood it was easier and less painful to go to a medical lab and let a proffessional nurse pricks you. The professionals know where to prick you. They know to get a good amount of blood from your body in a short period without you being aware of it.

They changed their domain name from sfm-offshore.com to sfm.com. some years ago, I have ordered a Seychelles company. just after placing the order, the representative of SFM located in DubaÏ took a 15-day leave. Then, I have sent all the administrative papers they asked me to send. At some point they contacted me pretending that the signatures were different on two papers. So, I contacted them saying that I have signed every paper. According to them, the signatures were not identical. They sent me a page asking me to declare that I changed my signature. I understood at this point that I was scammed. I lost 1500 euros. They were really good players. They answered slowly to make it as painful as possible.
Additionnally, be cautious about the fake reviews of SFM on the internet. You can see reviewers who only posted 1 review sharing their view on SFM. I think those ones are fake.

GSA SER and GSA SER captcha breaker used to be good. Now, it fails recognizing open source forums like SMF (both GSA SER and the breaker). The developper neglected the engines (the little program that helps recognize a CMS or a forum platform). I saw it because i discovered that in the URL sent to google for scraping website, it used http://www.google.com rather than https://www.google.com. It is now highly inefficient. I noticed the program crawls script platform (example phpbb) and it is unable to understand creating a profile. The developper should focus on the engines to ensure GSA SER finds and create accounts on forums, bookmarking websites...
By the way, proxies aren't banned from google because of high number of requests but because of the URL that GSA sends to google which is highly suspicious. That's because Sven , the developer of GSA didn't update the requests sent to Google since many years.
About GSA captcha breaker, it fails understanding from where the captcha comes. For instance, I had a captcha from phpbb (basic installation with no modification at all). Captcha breaker understood it was an "unknown captcha" even if it came from a default installation of phpbb

Hi Jorge,

Im sorry that you have problems with your setup of SER/CB. But belief it or not, we are always working on the tools to improve and fix issues. We are not ignoring requests or bugreports as you might see it.

That we used "http" to parse google has several reasons: One is that it is faster and was not handled as a suspicious request. If you think this is changed lately, we can of course update this and you can as well without our interaction as it is all editable. We will closely review this and maybe update the default search engine file on next update.

If you think that certain platforms like SMF don't perform as well as they used to, then please share the URL with us so that we can improve things. We simply can not monitor all sites of a platform on the internet. If something changes, we are in need of notifications like these to update things. Thats why we have a forum and till now, noone send us any bugreport about SMF.
Anyway, if you have a site that worked in the past but doesn't do now, please send us that by email or in our forum ( https://forum.gsa-online.de ).

Also the issues with Captcha Breaker are not known to me. If a certain captcha type can not be solved, then most likely it is new or you changed something on the settings. Simply send us the URL where this captcha appears. You can also add it easily yourself as the software comes with an SDK.

Anyway, we are doing all we can to keep the our software tools updated and I think this 1 star rating is not fair. It would be much easier to contact us directly to solve your issues. We are not ignoring any email or forum entry. Posting it on a review site like this is one way to get our attention, but not the best.

I strongly advise you not to order code signature at this company. They have very heavy never ending due diligence.

You better sell your application through the Microsoft store only and buy your developer signature from Apple if it is for MacOS. The Microsoft store procedure is very light. You can submit an application to Microsoft store without signing and Microsoft signs the application on your behalf. The membership is very cheap in both cases (apple and microsoft) : almost $100 each for a company. Don't focus on "standalone" distribution. We wasted 1 month for code sign. and this could have been used for marketing.

I strongly advise you not to order code signature at this company. They have very heavy never ending due diligence. I faced the same issue as previous person with the pricey package.

You can submit an application to Microsoft store without signing the code of your app and Microsoft signs the application on your behalf.
For the Mac App store, it is really easy to get a code certificate from Apple.
The membership of a developer account for Mac and PC are very cheap in both cases (apple and microsoft) : almost $100 each for a company. Don't focus on "standalone" distribution. We wasted 1 month for code sign. and this could have been used for marketing.

I was a Cj.com member. At some point I received money from cj.com nevertheless, I noticed the website was very slow. One day, my affiliate program has been stopped for no reasons. However, my affiliate links were still in place on my website and there were always functioning. In other words, I was still sending customers to their website but I didn't receive money for it. Other times, I have subscribed to affiliate programs. Since I didn't make enough money cj.com closed my account several times. However, from a marketing point of view, visitors of my website still clicked on the affiliate links and visited the target website. I subscribed to other affiliate programs and had no problems at all. Cj.com is special. This is i think one of the only website with which I had problem. Furthermore after closing my account, they sent me spam.
Cj.com looks appealing to webmasters and merchant but in fact, many affiliate programs are from websites that look like scams and aren't serious. A website owner can suffer from the bad reputation of those affiliate programs. Website owners waste their time with affiliate programs that aren't serious at all.
Furthermore, the website itself cj.com wasn't available or very slow several times.

I am surprised to see how many good reviews I can read about prestashop online. I bought several addons that didn't work and discovered that the support of Prestashop is really bad. The prestashop comunity is very unactive and small. When you go for prestashop , you are forced to hire high paid programmers who are the only one s to understand prestashop

They understood what any bank customer needs. As little due diligence as possible. They never block money transfer in Europe. A simple website with the right data. There is no token that you must use. The application is simple. There is the minimum of handling. Also, they are available at Office hours by Live chat which is the best possible way of communication. Also, you can receive you card everywhere in Europe.

I bought online a service to incorporate a Gibraltar company. I followed the list of required papers for due diligence. However, after I provided the papers they asked me to provide other papers. One was my personal tax report. It was not listed in the requirements.
I had none for the country where i lived because I moved to this new country
They didn't reimburse me even if I told them I could not provide the personal tax report. They are located in Hong Kong, and there is nothing I could do further.

I think they looked for additional due diligence to block the process. They only have a real incorporation office for HK and then they just contact other incorporation agents from all over the world to incorporate a company or open a bank account. Their site makes you believe that things are going to be easier if you hire them, but it is not true.

By the way, this is review is a real one, maybe unlike other reviews here for this company. Take the number of reviews into consideration and you will understand.

Blocked purchase after payment confirmation. They ask for due diligence (additional papers) after you pay. Avoid them at any price. This can delay a purchase by 24 hours.

I think that Avangate is one of the only payment processor that block payment for due diligence after a successful paypal payment confirmation. After i performed a paypal payment on the Avangate payment page, Avangate sent me link to my email address to confirm my paypal email address. This is done AFTER the reception of the successful payment from Paypal to confirm the payment!!! Then, even after the successful payment and the successful link confirmation they blocked the delivery of the service (a VPN service) because they wanted more due diligence.

I really wonder if all of that is legal because their process isn't mentioned upfront. Since they are located in the Netherlands, it would be worth notifying the authorities in the Netherlands. it is like going to the supermarket paying by a credit card, receiving a receipt for confirmation of payment and the cashier would keep all the items you have bought saying, "now we have to perform additional checkups and i will keep your items".

they are also lots of complaints on trustpilot about avangate. This also includes people using avangate as merchants & affiliates. I also had a problem with them as an affiliate.

My advice:
Don't share your knowledge for free on Stackexchange, you will never get rewarded for it. Better create a blog.

The information quality of this website is over-estimated. Normally we should have answers from very wise people. However, they are users on this website who don't deserve their points and don't really answer or get in a debate rather than answering.

From a technical point of view, many answers should be very simple to get. Either the person who answers has the necessary lines of code, lines of command or directive. Most of the time, they argue and you can do NOTHING with what they say. They just fill up the blank. I am suspicious about the +1 those low quality answers get. I wonder if some people didn't create bots just to get a better ranking.

You may read 5 answers thinking they are helpful and after thinking about it, you discover none of them are useful for your problem. Stackexchange is an ersatz of a help website.

Just like for Quora, people pretend to be knowledgeable about subjects but they don't.

There is only a small percentage of knowledgeable people on Stackexchange, and those people are never rewarded just like they should.
