iFriends.net WebPower Inc. DISHONEST & DECEPTIVE BUSINESS PRACTICES in LAKE WORTH, Florida
6th of Mar, 2011 by User222743
GREAT SCAM they have going: because the iFriends.net site has adult content they quite legitimately ask for your credit card information so that they can validate you're an adult. They promise only a "small charge" will be made for the validation, though they don't say exactly how much that will be. But they explicitly make clear that they won't be billing you for anything more unless and until you decide to sign up (which turns out to be a boldfaced lie) and there's a lot of free content there too, sounds real good at first. Until it turns out that what they told you was free really isn't, and you get huge charges made to the credit card that they promised would never happen until and unless you decided to join the website. Isn't that cute? Bait and switch! This has to be illegal and anyone who wants to join me in taking legal action against this sleazy company please file an update to this ripoff report and we'll figure out how to get together. When you call their customer service you get people who sound nice enough but they act all innocent like "oh didn't you see the notice saying there would be charges for those cams you watched?" AS IF it was some kind of an unusual occurrence and YOUR fault you didn't notice the tiny little change from the free pages. They quit the phony act though when you tell them there are 404 Ripoff Report cases filed against them (this should be #405). I talked to a "supervisor" named Peggy who admitted though that they were fully aware of their Ripoff Report complaints. Sure enough, they should be, most of the complaints here get "answered" by someone sounding real nice and conciliatory and oh please just call us and we'll reverse any charges that you didn't anticipate. IT'S STILL A SCAM THOUGH because only a small proportion of people they scam likely ever go to the trouble to do that. So they are ripping people off ROUTINELY with their DISHONEST BUSINESS MODEL. How dishonest are they? Well "Peggy" declined to give me the name of the person who runs the company, and when I asked her how she would feel about a company that when you called them up wouldn't tell you who runs it, she declined to answer that question too. She even said she sleeps well at night working for them, imagine that! These are people who scam others all day long, they are fully aware of it, and they're fine with it too. I think the right term for them is 'psychopath', someone without empathy and conscience. I told Peggy I wanted $5,000 in compensation and for her company's deceptive business practices to end immediately, or I would make a career out of 'outing' their dishonesty. Of course Peggy didn't find any humor in that but she did promise to have someone in management call me back. From prior experiences with soulless scammer ripoff artists like iFriends I won't be expecting that but will update this page if it does occur. The irony of this story is that I was checking out iFriends as an affiliate marketer, actually intending to drive traffic to their website to make a small commission on each signup. Now however I am going to use the story of their dishonesty to generate traffic to responsible sites instead! Nice job, iFriends! You gave me a wonderful reason for posting all over the web! I think the day will come when you will wish you had paid me $5,000 for violation of trust and decided to run your business honestly, let's see how long it takes shall we? This is the result of a WhoIs query on iFriends, showing they're located in Lake Worth, Florida, and the registrant can be reached at [email protected] If and when I find out who 'Mario' is I will post that information on this page.
