I was the victim of the recent postal service NON delivery debacle especially packages. This book ("Human Capital") was supposed to be delivered (so they said via their Informed Delivery service) LAST Friday. So I signed up for tracking alerts and the first email said this Thursday for delivery of the book. Then a second email said Tuesday (when it FINALLY arrived! And because I set up tracking alerts, now MAIL itself is NOT being delivered to my house as well as packages) I contacted ThriftBooks. Very prompt in apologizing for late delivery of the book (again, no fault of theirs; it's the post office that REFUSES to do their job timely or at all!), and they issued a refund. Plus I didn't have to pay even if the book arrived. I'm not a person who lies or cheats or looks for a handout. Since the book arrived, I resubmitted payment and let them know the check was in the mail. I guess I surprised them. This is a company who not only cares about their customers, but they want to make things right for them as well. A VERY gracious, friendly understanding book company! And those prices can't be beat either! Books are in very good condition for used.

That when a fund raiser on gofundme.com is started, that whatever money raised, the recipient DOESN'T receive the FULL amount raised? There is some money deducted. I recently was the victim of a job opportunity SCAM and one of the organizations I reached out to to seek help was our local news station. They set up a Zoom call so they could interview me. The piece ran three times. The day after it aired, I was informed that a viewer wanted to donate some money to me as a kindness (my situation was moving to them). The reporter suggested I start a Go Fund Me. So I did. Two months in since that was the only donation, I decided to see how I could receive the money (since by then I REALLY needed it). Setting up a transfer, I noticed the funds were sent to my bank account MINUS FIFTEEN bucks! It wasn't the FULL amount! I wasn't aware of this. So I just want others who may start a Go Fund Me to be aware.

https://www.manta.com/c/mhw4pj0/lmal-llc This is the link of the review I wrote of what these mf's ( Lmal LLC on the check) did to me! I applied for a data entry job via snagajob and was accepted. For me, a EXTREMELY poor just making ends meet monthly SENIOR CITIZEN, this was a dream come true. I could finally add to my skimpy monthly annuity and pay ALL the bills! Ha! Ha! Joke was on ME! Being sent a check from these scamming thieves, I went about doing as instructed. Setting up two Zelle payments via my bank AND sending two cash payments via Money Gram to a clown in North Carolina. What was left (?) was two hundred and forty-five dollars. What did these bastards do as soon as they got most of the money? Turned around and resubmitted the check, so now I'm three thousand two hundred plus OVER DRAWN! My monthly bills are now starting to come in for payment and of course having a negative amount, I'm also racking up fees. I have NO financial way to turn this around (while my bank investigates taking ten days!), nor do I have any friends or family to help (even setting up a fund raiser of the original amount of $3,845.). I also filed a claim with the FTC. Never mind there is NO JOB, but now I have NO MONEY either! I can't even afford a scratch off lottery ticket hoping I would win some money. #besidemyself!

It was a personalized mug that I saw as an advertisement on my face book feed. It touched my heart because on the back I could get Forever In My Heart to honor my two cats that are now at the Rainbow Bridge (the two living ones already have their own photo mugs). Except I SCREWED UP! I didn't know that on the form that each cat had their own boxes to check if I wanted angel wings to be attached. Poor dearly departed Tyler did not have angel wings when the mug arrived in a very short amount of time (honestly less than a week! Awesome!). I could have done a "Frozen" and "Let It Go", but I wanted this mug to be perfect. So I shot off a nice email explaining the situation. And here is what makes gossby.com a website a cut above the rest! They want to make it right. By sending me a new mug. As long as I sent them a photo (not easy to do Dropbox!), and shipping info, they would get on it and send a corrected replacement. AND, I do NOT have to send the other one back (though I would have at my expense)! Now this is a company worthy of doing business with. And they do keep you informed with emails, so you are not left hanging wondering what is going on. Five stars? There are NOT enough stars of praise for this company! (here are photos front and back of the wrong mug)

Not only are their shortbread cookies the most delicious cookies on the planet (and they get the consistency perfectly!), but you can order cookies in tins. And they have quite a few that are adorable and very sturdy too. But what I am MOST impressed with is the time from ordering to shipping to delivery. I placed an order (via an email offer) and not only did they kept me informed of when they received my order to when they were shipping it, but it only took TWO DAYS! #unbelievable! Now that's bloody good service if I may say so myself! Can't wait to dig in tomorrow with my morning coffee!

I am a sucker when I can put my two cats Trevor and Trey on useful objects. In this case, it was a tee shirt. Bonus was I could get a gorgeous shade of green. The end result was REMARKABLE! Their picture came out very clear and I loved the font they used for their names. GearBubble also kept me informed from receiving my order to shipping via emails. I am very VERY pleased! I will wear this shirt PROUDLY (and show off my boys)! I like to say this was a Christmas gift from them!

I have a code. First those insensitive jack wagons refused me access because I was on a desktop computer. So I went to an iphone. Since I didn't know my damn password, I requested a confirmation code. Which they did NOT send timely. I then kept submitting and had a ton of codes that they would NOT let me use to reset a password. The cruel morons locked me out and told me to try later. WELL, I'M HERE NOW SOBs! I am switching my soda of choice FROM pepsi TO COKE! They can just die!

I did NOT know when I ordered a sample pack from Down South it came with a SUBSCRIPTION! I just wanted to try another companies take on Poo Pourri (which I HIGHLY recommend [both product AND company]!). I can't afford a thirty-five dollar MONTHLY bill (I am a retiree on a skimpy annuity and not only can't I pay all of my monthly bills, I sure as hell fire can't afford another one!). I thought I could sample what this company had to offer. And if I so choose, reorder on MY terms! So buyer beware if you see this come through Facebook. It's not just a pay for shipping and handling ($1.99) ONE TIME deal; they SNEAK in a MONTHLY subscription! #deceptive.
UPDATE: I am ADDING this because I received an email from Down South thankfully CANCELLING my subscription, BUT I had to ADD about "correctly reflecting their policy". What policy? I NEVER EVER saw a policy, or that buying samples at a very reasonable price would mean I would have to ENROLL! As a customer, I should have the choice if I wish to order again, not deceptively enroll me into a monthly fee (as an unemployed retiree I can a not afford!). I wasn't trying to have review readers NOT buy from this company, but just be aware and keep your eyes WIDE open! How can I fairly write about a product that I haven't had a chance to try (though the products have a very nice scent. Waiting for that first bowel movement after delivery to see how it works)? Because I like to try Poo Pourri's competitors, how the hell did I know this company was subscription only? Flushie doesn't operate like that. Even Air Wick VIP in stores doesn't make you buy a subscription. I AM NOT RETRACTING THE ORIGINAL REVIEW! This was MY experience! I was just a naive consumer. I don't like the wool pulled over my eyes! Money is very tight right now. Maybe you can state your policy when the next gullible Facebook person clicks onto your web page via link to maybe order.

Just got an email from these bastards. My item is out of stock. But I can let them know how to proceed forward. Only the pricks will not allow me to sign in. Item now out of stock? Can't sign in? I say, STAY AWAY FROM THIS IRRITATING NON WORKING PIECE OF CRAP WEBSITE! The cussing and screaming (and breaking equipment in rage) IS NOT WORTH IT! I WILL NEVER EVER ORDER FROM THIS SITE AGAIN!
Soon after I wrote this review, NewChic via sitejabber started the back and forth email correspondences. And now this mornings email tells me the item has SHIPPED! WTF? Anyway, proceed with your own risk if you so chose to order from this company. To review, I could not sign in to let them know how I wanted to proceed. After countless tries, I became EXTREMELY irritated to the point I was screaming and throwing things, to having to reset a password to get in, countless emails to FINALLY tell them how to proceed and another email telling me the shirt was shipped, do I honestly think the item that caught my eye was REALLY worth it in the long run? Let me answer with a question mark symbol?

An IRRITATING NON WORKING website! The SOB's have a TEASE contest that all of a sudden are they blocking me, denying acceptance of entry and/or punishment! I faked those SOBs out the second day by using a different internet connection, but the third day of trying to enter, I was denied AGAIN! THREE f!@#$%^&*ing days now I have been trying to enter their tease contest AND I CAN'T! It's a NON WORKING F!@#$%^&*ed up website that CAN'T and WON'T stay working 24/7! It's irritating and down right cruel! These SOBs do NOT belong on the web! STAY AWAY FROM SHOECARNIVAL.com! Unless you want to get enraged to the point of destruction!

The product is Nutra Thrive. It sounded exactly what I needed for my two cats. Plus it was a powder to add to their food instead of trying to shove a pill down their throats. The description of the ailments were some issues I'm dealing with (so I ordered and got roped into FOUR jars instead of trying just one). You have to hit the About tab on their website which after you click onto and scroll to the bottom to Our Promise To You which CLEARLY states you have 90 days if you want a purchase refund. Great! Only problem is you have to CALL them to initiate the refund process (and I hate hate hate making phone calls!). There they make you jump through hoops literally begging you to keep the product and try it a little at a time because you have ninety days to return it. Hello, did you hear me lady on the phone? MY CATS WOULD NOT EAT IT sprinkled on their food! In fact hours later, my 12 year old was crying literally for his dinner (without Nutra Thrive in it). And at $129 for four jars, why should I keep trying? I KNOW MY CATS! When they get a wet food sample, they may not eat their whole portion, but they DO EAT IT willingly (and with gusto). And to ship these jars back the cheapest way cost me $13.95 which I don't have on hand. Either that or I wouldn't get a FULL refund if they had to pay the shipping. Most places pay to have you return their product. A very costly mistake on my part ordering this. And customer service should except NO and not make you jump through hoops either. Order at your own risk.

amazon.com #SUCKS! I have pre-ordered from them in the past successfully. I placed a pre-order for a CD on May 17th. Today I got an email that said THEY CANCELLED the order with no rhyme no reason! I DID NOT CANCEL THE ORDER or contact them in any way after I placed the order. I tried to post on their face book page (only way I thought to directly contact them about this and get answers!) and all I got was a run around. Well, I AM DONE! I do NOT think I will EVER place another order at amazon.com! When I Google search for an item in the future and see amazon.com show up, I WILL STEER CLEAR!
Target

The brick and mortar Target store is less than a mile from my house. I have to order the item I was emailed exclusive to Target ONLINE because the store doesn't stock it. Fine. But why do I have to go in and out on their extremely difficult website to place an order? The edit cart and check out box REFUSED to high light so you can click onto it. I don't know how many times I removed the item and started from scratch before those brats would FINALLY complete my order! I don't need this crap! I have no problems at Walmart.com (where I can order and complete in a flash) for example. I tried two browsers (Chrome and Edge), and quite frankly if this item wasn't exclusive only to Target, I wouldn't have bothered. If you have patience, then maybe you would have better luck ordering from target.com. Me, I'm done stick a fork in me GONE! This site needs MAJOR ordering experience IMPROVEMENT STAT! Or they will turn customers away!

It never fails when these clucks offer a daily contest. As it gets towards the end, they deny you access, block you (maybe even punish you!); I have been trying for TWO DAYS (now) to enter and it looks like I'm done being allowed to enter daily (why? What did I do?). Same goes for their f!@#$%^&*ed up tease Rewards For Good (website). I have a tease code that I can NOT enter! First day, I had no clue as to why the blocking. Today there is a lame line maintenance. How long does a website take to do maintenance? This is CRUEL! If a site can not (and refuses) to keep their stupid website up and running 24/7, then they should NOT be allowed on the web!

If ANYBODY is thinking of replacing their roof with this male elementary school baby company who if they can't get their way, turn you in and get you in trouble. Despicable business bar none! My insane HOA thought many roofs in a row needed replacement. Because I refused to move my car (I wasn't getting a new roof) in front of MY HOUSE, David ratted me out to the HOA. When I still refused to move, the HOA sent out a TOW TRUCK! This company had at least FOUR spaces to the left of me to park their endless vehicles. And countless spaces to the right. ONE CAR NOT MOVING was NOT going to make a difference (OR be in their frigging way!). Needless to say, that after having to be forced to move, I cussed the HOA out. Then they THREATENED me AGAIN wanting to sic the brute force bullying police department in my city on me because these babies can't deal with foul language. Here are photos (don't have the one of the shattered screen door they battered rammed breaking the glass, but you can see the edge of it in some of the photos) from 20 May 2013 when the police came and not only damaged my house (leaving $1,658.50 worth of destruction), but left me with PTSD. First an actual tow truck shows up! Then the THREAT of the local police! This is how a senior citizen is treated!

I have been stuck in my house for five days. As luck would have it, I VERY MUCH need a computer part that broke three days ago. Staples.com on their website said if I ordered, I could have NEXT DAY delivery. Of course like a fool, I chose pick up in store (it's a hike by foot, but doable) to save the shipping fee. What a crock of crap! They just sent an email that delivery was DELAYED (no reason why) and it will be ready for pick up TOMORROW (and that is not what those SOBS claim on their website ["order today; pickup the next day"])! That means I have been with a broken computer for FIVE DAYS! I chose this lying unreliable store because I can walk to it. I don't like waiting and I do NOT like BROKEN promises. NEVER EVER will I shop online with these lying sacks of crap and I just may be done with their brick and mortar stores too! STAY AWAY! THEY LIE!

I have a Nook, so I thought I would order three books on a subject that recently caught my interest. I ordered from the Nook's manufacturer. Since my Nook was never updated, it would not download any book purchases. Now I would literally have to have a book if I wanted to read about this subject. Fine. Books A Million was the ONLY seller that had ALL three. So I placed an online order. Well, they PROCESSED TWO and SENT TWO, but the third (and the one based on the Showtime series) was NEVER sent and was listed as pending. I could NOT change payment method, nor could I cancel the order and shop from a vendor who would gladly send me the book. I went on chat. Yes, they cancelled the order, but they NEVER EVER gave an explanation of why they REFUSED to send the book or why it was CONSTANTLY pending (or what that meant for that matter!). Because of this, I will think twice about placing a book purchase online from Books A Million in the future.

THERE IS NO JOB! I applied through indeed.com (another false lead way to get a job and/or be hired And snag.com is another false lead rip off!). After signing up, there are NO JOBS to be had at least in the "zones" you request. There is a two week window to get hours, but the thing is, there is NO way you can get hours. I desperately need income STAT! But you can't go any farther with this tease you into thinking you can work company. And unless you are computer savvy, you are SOL! The damn app they want you to download onto your phone is NOT user friendly. And they do NOT offer any help or instruction. If you need money, and a job, this is definitely NOT where you need to apply (another rip off is Uber eats. They only have jobs in crime ridden areas. At least in Baltimore, Maryland).
5/7/18
I stumbled onto this vile unhelpful website because my hunk of junk APPLE iPhone is broken. Apple (as in a useless store) will NOT repair my phone. So doing searches looking for help, I stumbled onto this piece of crap website that took three days to get back to me to tell me because my model isn't listed, I'm just $#*! out of luck. Just as well. I will NEVER EVER do business with a company that refuses someone help who is in dire straights. And I NEVER EVER will own another Apple product, because when they die, you can't find ANYONE to repair the crap they sell.
3/25/18
I have an email account with these irritating broken no service SOBS. It is my MAIN email account! I have NOT been able to gain access ( being punished?) for TWO DAYS! And they are REFUSING to do a damn thing about fixing this problem! I have tried TWO browsers. I have tried TWO internet service providers. I have tried going in anonymously. Meanwhile if I'm EVER allowed back in (which I seriously doubt at this point!), I will have so much mail piled up that I will be sitting at my computer until I am dead and buried! That's if my computer works! Not knowing what the problem is, I am taking it out in frustration on my computers, my keyboards, my mouse ANYTHING that is easy to break with bare hands/and or being able to throw. This is cruel! And as I said, a website that just doesn't give a crap either!
