Here is an alleged nonprofit that hopes to take advantage of deceitful false narratives to get angry, hateful people to donate money. Don't. What a hoax. In the face of school shootings, many schools have hired resource officers and other law enforcement like employees. This nonprofit offers no solutions, just hate, to manipulate you to give them money. Don't.

Wikipedia is unique and has helped countless people get their bearings, and learn facts in the process. The editing feature is excellent since many people have knowledge they can add in real time to correct or add to a record. For only $5, each of us can make a contribution to keep Wikipedia online. Even if we only contribute every few years, we show our respect for knowledge and for everyone else using the Internet. Yes, some of the information is not entirely 100% accurate, sure, just as many encyclopedias contain errors or become obsolete. Wikipedia was a great idea, and has been useful to millions. Well done!

Nationwide Insurance has no respect for laws, and will harm you with impunity as they pay off any state insurance commissioners who if honest might get in their way. Nationwide allows anyone to phone them and add themselves to your policy, without your knowledge or consent. Nationwide Insurance hires people who work out of their restrooms, using only a cell phone to do business. Nationwide insurance will deliver your insurance payment to crooks and criminals without your knowledge or consent. What a deceitful, lousy company. How can they get any green light for doing any business ever? They'll spend a fortune to avoid paying your insurance reimbursements.

Tip for consumers: Find another insurer immediately. Avoid Nationwide.

Is it pressure from merchants that is causing Trip Advisor to trash negative reviews? Is Trip Advisor going the way of Yelp? Oh, yes. Trip Advisor is for sale. Money will remove bad reviews. Is Trip Advisor unable to deliver? Is censorship going on? Oh, yes. How much does it cost to get a bad review censored? Did the ownership of this business change hands? Gosh, what happened?

Bruce Anderson, the publisher of the Anderson Valley Advertiser, enjoys trashing and harming innocent people. He claims to have proof and evidence, but that's just another bold lie. If you write to him and ask for any proof or evidence that might support the horrible allegations made in this junk publication, he refuses to respond or provide any proof or evidence. No proof or evidence can be located on the above website where it might be claimed to be found. This publication is so vile and false, it should be shut down. Class action lawsuit, anyone? What junk. Junk. Junk.

Nationwide Financial

Nationwide Insurance, like any other insurer, has fiduciary duties toward its customers and any consumer who pays the insurance premiums. Unfortunately, Nationwide has no respect for their duties of trust and their contractual obligations. If they can keep your money and do nothing, they will. Their employees work "remote" which means from their homes, and their business phones are their personal cell phones. No way to reach anyone in the company who is intelligent, skilled and has any honor or integrity. The CEO is well insulated by tokens whose jobs are to double talk any injured insureds. Nationwide cannot be bothered to even get the signed written consent of a policy holder before adding unknowns and unrelateds as "additional insureds. There is no integrity to be found at Nationwide. Avoid Nationwide like the plague.

Churches are, for the most part, just businesses, raising funds, and the money is all they care about. A group of many churches is 100 times worse than any single church, taking advantage of the assumption that any of those involved care about the Teachings of Jesus Christ, being honest, respecting the 10 Commandments, helping others or making this a better world. Not only is the N. California Council of Churches total hypocrites, they are offensive and nasty folks who get off on insulting anyone trying to make this a better world. There is nothing good or noble about this group, and they have accomplished nothing of any worth other than raising more money to stuff in their own pockets. Horrible people who wouldn't recognize Jesus Christ if JC was standing before them trying to save their souls.

Citigroup Private Bank

Citigroup Private Bank

9/9/18

While the position may remain, the branch manager can do nothing at all. The bank is run from the Phillippines. A couple of people in S. Dakota, and one or two staff somewhere in Texas with a call center sometimes open in Florida provide some distraction. No one works at Citibank. The customer is treated like sewage. Long holds are placed on checks deposited for no reason. Accounts are blocked for no reason, and after being unblocked, may be reblocked without notice to the customer. for no reason. What was once an excellent bank is now total crap. Useless. Insulting experience.

Zillow

Zillow

Zillow is mostly accurate, not always, but mostly. Sometimes, transactions and transactional information disappears completely, and it is impossible to find it, get it back or verify what happened. Sometimes, I have filed a rating for those they push and promote, and Zillow trashes any ratings that aren't 4 or 5 star ratings. Zillow is very biased and sells out. Overall, Zillow is very useful and a bit better than any of its competitors.

Yahoo.com fancies itself a news services. OK. I don't like the bias and Fake News of Huff Post and now AP and CBS, but Yahoo.com does, and that's pretty much all Yahoo.com prints. If you have data, studies and information contrary to the contents of articles written by Huff Post, AP, CBS and their ilk, Yahoo will censor and suppress your comments, trashing your Free Speech. Yahoo seems to have gotten its act together with email, and I am ready to ignore the news/entertainment side of Yahoo. Frankly, I don't mind having a discussion or agreeing to disagree, but Yahoo simply censors and supresses and trashes your Free Speech. Bullies.

Microsoft

Microsoft

6/21/18

Microsoft has very little integrity, if any. Microsoft hired not an American, but a foreigner, an Indian CEO, who only learned about high tech thanks to the USA, and got to come to the USA on a special visa and now runs Microsoft, but not without thinking that he has the right to tell Americans what we should think and how we should think and how we should live. Satya Nadella sent his views to each and every Microsoft employee concerning Illegals and immigrants, and if you don't Kiss Satya's oversized bottom, you won't do very well at Microsoft. Of course, Satya stopped being grateful to the USA the moment he gained his Dreams, and he sure doesn't plan on making sure that any ordinary Americans gain their Dreams. Not in the cards. Bill Gates is a worthless America who cares not one speck for other Americans.

Tip for consumers: After Operating System 10 and its revisions was introduced and trashed lap top owners, I gave up entirely on Microsoft. Now that Microsoft is in the business of telling Americans how they should think and what they should believe, I want nothing more to do with Microsoft or its foreign leadership.

Whole Foods

Whole Foods

6/23/18

I met the founders of Whole Foods before 1990 as they identified my organic farm and desperately wanted me to sell my produce to their about to be built Whole Foods markets. Yes, back then, organic actually meant something to this business. Amazon.com is a Global player, feeding US intelligence with countless private tips on Americans or other customers, which is why Amazon.com is still in business despite making no profits. Amazon.com wanted Whole Foods, so it bought the company. As soon as possible, Amazon.com started making material changes, one of which changes is to obscure and refuse to label goods. Whole Foods promised to label GE and GMO, well that promise is out the window. Amazon.com made money selling goods made by slaves, so any effort to certify that goods were not made by slaves is out the window. The latest change is Amazon's move to be the new Costco. Many people do not realize that Costco sells and mislabels Factory Farm goods, being one of the biggest movers of Factory farm meats. Well, Amazon sees this as profitable and is moving to mislabel Factory Farm meats at Whole Foods. Costco's revenue model is based on membership dues. Costco makes far more money from such dues than from selling goods, so now Amazon is trying to sell its "Prime membership" by posting blue and yellow signs throughout Whole Foods that will give special deals to Prime members. This is the same as membership dues. What does a Prime membership cost now? $100? Get the picture?

Tip for consumers: Whole Foods becomes Costco thanks to Amazon.com.

Ancestry

Ancestry

6/12/18

Ancestry.com is another Mormon organization that mines all of your hard research and data for free and presents it as their own research and knowledge. If you pay for their DNA testing, they send you these "maps" which solely reflect where your ancestors lived during the past 1000 years, all of which information they got from you for free and you already knew. If you pay the high price of their DNA testing, and you ask them for a detailed DNA report, they refuse to give it to you, but send you countless advertisements seeking more money from you. Their DNA tests are schlock and phony, total fraud. No haplo groups. No mitochondria information. No details or usable information. Ancestry.com is Total Fraud and should be investigated and forced out of business. Class Action Lawsuit anyone?

Tip for consumers: If what you want is true and accurate DNA testing with all details, absolutely DO NOT use Ancestry.com. They don't even test your spit/blood/DNA at all. Just send you useless maps based on information you previously provided to them for free. What Fraudsters!

Google

It wasn't enough to be just Google.com. Now, this profitable search engine has to own YouTube and Google Review and Google Mapping, change its name to Alphabet (meaning more to the world than even Amazon) and find new ways to screw consumers. Is it any wonder that people are becoming so frustrated with Google in its many forms that they will show up at YouTube and start shooting? Why would anyone think that once YouTube sold out to Google that Google would continue to pay you what YouTube used to pay you? Immediately after buying YouTube, Google terminated all customer service positions for Gmail, YouTube and Google. What a blinking mess that has created. About a year ago I started making reviews on Google, and I found that even though Google refuses to speak to or communicate with any reviewer, Google will take down your review if some powerful company threatens it. So, what is the point of a review that is not just another superficial, meaningless review? Google is the perfect example of a company too big for its britches.

Allstate

Allstate

5/27/18

For six years, I diligently paid for Allstate Roadside Assistance. Last week, I needed to use the assistance. OMG. This company is so inept and worthless, I have to warn everyone! The call center in Dallas, Texas doesn't even have or use a map. I was calling from the State of Oregon, and they kept asking me over and over if I was in Maryland. They could not locate the state highway. They could not locate any towns. They refused to call any towing service. After being left on the side of the road for three hours without any assistance, someone stopped and called Allstate and shamed them for being such a bad company. Allstate abandoned me and my broken down vehicle. Awful company. Awful people. Their employees are totally useless.

Tip for consumers: Find another roadside assistance company immediately. Not sure that Triple A is really any better since I used my Triple A card as well and thought they knew where Oregon is located, they never got back to me.

Lesschwabtires

4/9/18

Another American company that has gone downhill in the past 10 years after decades of quality work and consumer satisfaction. I ordered tires that were $50 overpriced, and because I didn't know how overpriced they were, I went to get a tire installed only to discover that they had another $50 of hidden fees they planned to tack on to my bill. They forced me to sign a computer terminal without providing me with the invoice to review. They said, "you have to sign before we can print". As soon as the invoice was printed, I objected to all the additional undisclosed charges, and the Les Schwab Tire manager and staff became abusive, screaming at me. When I said I would never purchase tires from a company that not only overcharged for the tires but tacked on $50 in additional undisclosed fees, they stole money from my debit card. When I wrote to the corporate headquarters in Oregon, the company's managers ignored me. In the store I recently visited, every employee but the manager was foreign or illegal. Wow, the end of a what was once a decent company, again. I should know. I bought a lot of tires over the past 40 years from them.

Tip for consumers: Find another tire distributor. Not all Les Schwab Tires stores are the same, and you may find a decent store, like the one in Escalon, CA.

National Association of REALTORS®

National Association of REALTORS®

2/10/18

The National Association of REALTORS, aka as "Realtors" (trademarked) could not be more phony. They go all out to represent that they have a meaningful Code of Ethics and that "you can be confident" that you are being "dealt with honestly" and "ethically" when that is just pretense, deceit and lies. The worst liars and defrauders in the business of selling real estate are members of this worthless organization. The Code of Ethics is not enforced and none of the members are accountable at all no matter how awful their deceit and how much they will harm and have harmed parties to real estate transactions who trusted their Realtor. If an injured party goes to Realtors to complain about the deceit of a member Realtor, nothing is done. Nothing. You will be told, "well, it's a voluntary pledge". That's right, totally meaningless advertising telling you how great they are when in fact, they deliberately mislead buyers and sellers and knowingly conceal material adverse facts. Realtors laugh, knowing you've been tricked, deceived and harmed but they have their commissions. Phony to the max.

Invisionapp.com

I Never signed up for purchasing anything from InVision yet they have been stealing money from my bank account every month. I have written to them 14 times asking them to stop taking my money and to refund what they've taken, but they always have a phony and ridiculous excuse. I never ordered anything from them. I never signed up for anything from them. I have filed a consumer fraud complaint with the New York Attorney General. These unskilled, boring thieves refuse to return money. Where did they get my banking information? Experian? Does InVision buy banking information from hackers? When will our government stop thieves like InVision. I also filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission, another worthless government group.

Tip for consumers: They make more money stealing than selling.

Attorneycredits.com

Attorneycredits

11/26/17

Continuing legal education like all other kinds of mandatory education is a scam, but some of the companies involved are worse than others. Attorney credits took my money while they still had custody of my goods and waited for days before bothering to ship. I still haven't received anything. They charged me extra for speedier shipping while they knew they hadn't bothered to ship at all. I purchased the goods based on their false promises and misrepresentations. When I communicated with them, they were nasty and vile. I have nothing, and this company refuses to reimburse me for the monies they stole, forcing me to sue them. Avoid Attorney credits like the plague. If the Bar association ever did anything to help its members, they'd eliminate this bad company.

Tip for consumers: Do not Have Anything to do with this horrible company.

SpareFoot

SpareFoot

11/13/17

Spare Foot is another organization that provides no value added at all. Spare Foot promotes bad, trashy, unsafe storage facilities for money. Spare Foot prevents honest reviews and blocks any honest reviews. Spare Foot is a total fraud and deceit, harming customers and endangering storage customers. Bad, bad people.

Tip for consumers: Do not Rely on anything on this website. All lies, subterfuge and deceit.
