These sad scammers gave themselves a bad review (see below!). Steer clear of these payday loan sites. They are out to take your money!

I have the most adorable little 10 month old niece, and I want to be the best auntie possible so I've been reading up on the science behind early childhood development. I've found the Harvard Center on the Developing Child website to be really interesting. I won't pretend to understand everything, but I've enjoyed reading about it:

I spend waaaay too much time in airports so was very happy to find Gate Guru, a neat little iPhone app that helps you find stuff in airports so you don't have to wander around and take a stab at a dodgy looking airport fare (sort of like Yelp for airports). MAYBE if we're lucky crummy airport food stands will take notice and actually start offering better food! Fat chance! Pfft.

Is it weird that I love the FTC? I sort of do =)

I feel like so much of the US Government is not really looking out for all us little people, but at least the FTC is trying, although they may not always succeed.

The FTC has a TON of good consumer info:

And for anyone who is policy nerd and like to read about Washington stuff, they even have things for you:

Another site selling fake uggs! For the low-down on how to find real uggs online, you can read the review on the official ugg site:

Watch out for these sites trying to get you to sign up for expensive payday loans! Many of them are scams and the rest charge way too much. Here's a useful link from the FTC which talks about it: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt060.shtm

I've been keeping my eye on Fast Buggies's reviews for a long time, and this is what I think is happening:

1. People order on Fast Buggies and either don't get what they order or they have a bad customer service experience.
2. They post a bad review here
3. Fast Buggies then calls them and tries to get them to change their review in exchange for getting the product they ordered in the first place

My advice: look out for these guys and be wary!

When I go toy shopping for my nieces this Xmas, I have a new site to check to make sure the toys are safe! I don't know if it's exhaustive, but it's much better than nothing. And it works great on my iPhone.

The site is run by these guys: http://www.uspirg.org/

Be careful of these payday loan sites! Some information from the US Goverment's FTC: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt060.shtm

I'd avoid doing business with these guys - they have been spamming the SiteJabber forum. They also have a FAKE McAfee badge so they are most likely scammers.

Another site selling fake UGGs! If you want to find a list of places to get real UGGs, please visit the official UGG website: http://www.uggaustralia.com/

These guys are spammers based in China - buyer beware!

I don't think offering free antibiotics is very good for anyone. Antibiotics are over-prescribed and have resulted in drug-resistant strains of bacteria. This seems just like a weak gimmick to get people to spend more money from the people at Shoprite.

Here's a more detailed discussion from the forum: http://www.sitejabber.com/forum/health/shoprites-free-antibiotics-offer-not-so-awesome

10/31/09

Please be very cautious of sites like this - companies that offer rates and terms on loans that are too good to be true are usually either scams or are hiding undesirable terms. The FTC has posted some useful information that everyone should read: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt060.shtm

Please avoid sites like this offering payday loans. For the most part they are trying to take advantage of consumers. The FTC has written a very good article on this: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt060.shtm

10/29/09

I would avoid these work at home sites that promise a lot of money for only a little work. The FTC has a special information page on this: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/invest/inv14.shtm

10/29/09

I would avoid these guys - looks like they are using a fake BBB seal on their websites.

10/29/09

Please stay away from this site - in addition to the complaints here on SiteJabber, you'll also see that this site is using a fake VeriSign badge which is a sure sign of scammers!

10/28/09

Please be careful with these work at home websites - if they promise something that is too good to be true, it probably is.

Here's is a useful information page from the FTC: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/invest/inv14.shtm

So I love wine, but I don't know much about it and have such troubles remember which wines I like. Enter BottleNotes. It has a very easy to use tool which lets you review and take notes on the wines you drink. So every time I go wine tasting I come home and make a note of it on bottle notes so I don't forget. Pretty neat if you ask me!

Here's the page where you can take notes: http://www.bottlenotes.com/tasting-notes
