I bought this anti-virus program for $20.00. It worked well. After one year of use I received an email informing me that I am being billed $99.00 for the "subscription." I called to cancel. The price was exorbitant. It was already on my credit card website statement. I vehemently cancelled. I was told there would be a $19.99 fee for cancellation. I angrily told the person that I would not pay this either. That is another form of extortion in my opinion. I was told all charges would be dropped. I received an email to that effect. However, had the renewal been $20.00 again i would not have hesitated to continue. But it is apparent this has the smell of a scam. The program works really well. It's a shame that the renewal fees were not up front.
Much of the merchandise on this site comes from China directly. Much of it may be described as "Chinese Junk." There are legitimate items on this site. One of them is an Android iPad. You bid on them in a 90 second frenzy. Some of the images are misleading. Read the descriptions CAREFULLY. I did get a neat little set of "Minions" ( Despicable Me characters) that are tiny but nicely made and fun to have. Some of the items are the things you see at the end of grocery and drugstore counters.

Hi Paul,

I truly appreciate you taking the time out to leave a review. Thank you for taking time out of your personal time to do so.

We want you to be pleased with all of your purchases on Tophatter and I'm sorry that hasn't been the case.

Shoppers also have the option to rate their delivered items. Rating items is important because 1.) other buyers will be able to review the average rating on products before they bid, and 2.) items rated consistently low will automatically stop being scheduled on the platform. For these reasons we encourage you to rate the products you have purchased, although doing so is not required.

Tophatter is a Marketplace that connects buyers with sellers (https://tophatter.com/terms), and we rely on sellers to provide accurate information about every item; however, if you discover a listing has been misrepresented in any way, we offer excellent Buyer Protection (https://tinyurl.com/yd75uc6e) As part of our quality assurance process, our system detects and applies strong penalties to sellers with higher than average return rate, and individual items exceeding the rate will no longer be scheduled on our platform.

If for any reason you’re not completely satisfied, you can request to return an item for up to 30 days from the date of delivery. A full refund of the original price paid will be processed upon return of the item in its original condition. To request a return, visit My Orders, click the item, then click Return Item.

Kind Regards,
I have accumulated a fairly large amount of points. However, the rewards page keeps telling me I am "unauthorized to redeem" these points. One "solution"was a falilure. Further requests for hep to Life Points are unanswered and not resolved.
Tired of figuring out iTunes to get some music on your iPod? This is a very easy app to use. However, when you download this free app, it will install Chromium (whatever the hell that is) and MacKeeper (a good app, but expensive to buy and it nags). I have used an app manager app to get rid of my inadvertent download of the above added apps. Also I have use my adware app to get rid of adware with this app. When all is said and done, the Allmp3 app is easy to use. I used a cd to get specific pieces for my wife's iPod. The app converted them to MP3 quickly and I simply sent them to the iPod on my desktop to the iPod icon and Voila! They were in the iPod.
I ordered a cabinet online. The cabinet was unassembled as explained. It came in a reasonable amount of time and in perfect condition. The quality of the cabinet was excellent. We were very pleased with the experience, the the shipping, and the item. Target was an excellent seller.
I faithfully did the surveys at this survey site. I had earned enough points to get a $25.00 and a $10.00 gift card good at A. C. Moore. When I attempted to redeem the cards, I was told that my land-line phone number was a VOIP number and therefore this invalidated my redemption. I sent inquiries to their customer service which refused to accept my explanation and then suspended my account. A claim of investigation has not be carried out apparently and my gift cards are never to be sent to me. My other hunch is that these people just don't want to be bothered or have scammed me.
I have made many purchases through Amazon. I have never been disappointed in the service or the products I have received. Minor issues have been resolved easily and without a hassle.
I have been a member of Toluna.com for many years. About a week ago I found that I could not sign in or contact Toluna through their website. I have tried to contact through Facebook and through an unrelated email from them. I do not understand why this site will not work for me after so many years. This is good survey site and I am disappointed with their inability to help me.
This is the best site I have found for frames for my artwork. They have an extensive array of frames from which to choose and the prices are very reasonable when you compare them with many other frame sites. The quality of the frames is excellent.

Thank you so much for the generous compliments, Paul! We deeply appreciate that you value our selection, quality and price (apparently, you are brilliant *and* have excellent taste), and continue to entrust us with your framing... seriously, it's the nicest thing we've heard all day.
Tried to download a program to lay out photos (Image Buddy). Nothing worked. No respnse except an email with keys that did not work. Tried to refund through my credit card company. It was cancelled once, then found the charge again on my credit card bill! Also, now Softonic says, up front, that it contains viruses.
I thought this would be a great buy. I paid for the 5 year membership. A few days ago the account was deactivated. I asked why? The site said that I was giving my password to others. This is a lie. I replied that there is a mistake. No reply from them. My credit card company cannot cancel the payment because it is too late. I have posted a similar review on Facebook already. Apparently, this site which could be a great site has chosen to be a cheap scam.
