we bought a 'tory burch' purse last month from for what appeared to be a killer deal. dywse shipped to us a different and really ugly 'tory burch' purse and sandals, and overcharged our credit card by a couple of bucks. items were shipped from asia and smashed together in a tightly wrapped package.

i strongly believe the purse and sandals are knock offs.

in several e-mail exchanges, they refused to take the items back and pay for shipping, or give us a refund. they put a lot of pressure on us to keep the junk items and compensate us with coupons for future purchases. they were completely tone-deaf to our demands.

i opened a dispute with our credit card company, synchrony bank. they gave us a full refund, but i don't know if they were able to recover anything from dywse.

stay as far away from dywse as possible. they're not a legitimate company but a scam operation selling knock-offs. you've been warned!

a brand new replacement pump arrived this morning, as promised (2 day delivery). my 2-3 experiences ordering from vminnovations have all been positive, and i won't hesitate to order from them again.

Tip for consumers: don't believe all the negative reviews

“excellent customer service”

wow, i'm not understanding all the negative reviews here. it sure doesn't apply to my experience with vminnovations.

i bought a pond pump 3-4 years ago that has a 5-year warranty. cost about 90 bucks. it failed last year and i called vminnovations for a replacement. their communications were prompt and detailed. they honored the warranty and had a replacement shipped to me right away at no cost, even before the old one was returned. sure, i had to pay shipping to return the old one, but big deal, it beats having to buy a new one.

so, two days ago the replacement failed again after one year in service (pump runs 24/7/365), but it's still under warranty. i wrote to customer service with photos of the damaged unit. they responded immediately with an rma. i dropped it off at fedex this morning and sent a copy of the tracking receipt to them. they responded within minutes promising to get a replacement unit shipped out tomorrow morning.

these guys are first rate in my book and i will definitely buy from them again. i will modify this review if anything ever happens to change that assessment.




my wife took this online course for first aid/cpr certification for her job at a home care facility. her employer agreed to accept an online training program. she passed with two errors (only 10 questions). i reviewed the test. most of the questions are irrelevant to the training (broken blood vessels are defined as bruises???), ambiguous, and poorly worded.

here's the first question she missed:
"To save an unconscious person who choked on an object you should do the Heimlich maneuver." the supposedly correct answer is false, yet the choking section says "when performing the Heimlich maneuver on an unconscious person lay the patient on his/her back..." it's still the heimlich maneuver when they're on their back.

second question:
"C in C.A.B. stands for chest compressions." they say this is false. the cpr section says "C is for Circulation Compressions," and the next lilne is "Chest Compressions." and they call this a wrong answer??? what is this question actually testing that's of relevance to the training??? google "cab cpr" and see what the 'c' stands for.

this training was so lame i refused to let my wife pay for the certificate. she took another online course from the training was much more rigorous, and testing more reflective of what you need know (40 multiple choice questions instead of 10 true/false).

our advice is stay away from national cpr foundation and get training from a provider where you'll actually learn something.
