Impersonation Scam
I was searching for mobile phone on OLX and came accross his ad. He contacted me on whatsapp for further details. I've been in conversation with him for 3 days related to the company and product details I want to buy. He asked me to pay tax amount in advance and rest amount on cash on delivery. On his suspicious behavior like offering me discounts and cheap price, I've contacted the best buy customer care support and asked them if this person is your company's sales executive. I then came to know he doesn't belong to the company and the products from the bestbuy don't ship to Pakistan. Meanwhile I got alert from OLX that this user has been blocked due to suspicious activities.Timely alert of OLX and bestbuy support saved me from this scam.

Apple force us to but its new products
I have been very upset that my iPhone 6 has slowed down a great deal. My battery was tested and it showed it to be healthy. Think Apple has done this so that it will force you to buy an iPhone 8 or an iPhone X. I do not buy their excuse the new software does not run on the older phones. My iPhone was running perfectly until they slowed it down through a software update and this was originally done without the customer's knowledge. I also learned for the first time today that when Apple does a screen share on your computer they record your computer. As a customer, I don't like the fact you are forced to have your computer recorded if you need to screen share with a tech agent. I don't think any customer wants their computer information recorded. There is no telling what Apple will do with that information. We saw the problems with what Facebook did with their members' information.

Samsung refrigerators are expensive junk
Unfortunately, I fell in love with its center drawer and purchased a 4-door Samsung Refrigerator Freezer 3 and a half years ago, for $3200.00, without doing proper research. The model is RF24FSEDBSR and was manufactured in Sept of 2014. I still love the center drawer, but it is not enough to make up for the rest of the appliance. This is a prime example of a company that thinks highly of itself but doesn't care that it sells absolute junk. The number of problems and repairs for the ice maker, add up to this being the worst purchase I have ever made and that is saying something. I have put up with months and months of temporary fixes, thawing with hairdryers, mopping up pooling water on the floor of the refrigerator section and just doing without ice.

Recently, I have had 3 service calls for the ice maker. The ice maker freezes solid and won't dispense ice. Then, I need to move all my refrigerated food to a cooler and my frozen food to the outside freezer; turn off the entire unit for 2 days, with both doors propped open; and put an air circulator/warmer inside, just so the repairman can pry the completely frozen icemaker out without cracking the wall of the refrigerator. On the last service call, he replaced the entire ice maker for about $550.00. My total out of pocket for repairs and service is about $850.00. I fully expect that amount to grow. Now, it sort of works, but makes very little ice, (which will not be enough with summer coming).

I cannot get cubed ice, just crushed ice; there is water dripping down the front of the refrigerator and it is a constant source of aggravation. Samsung wasn't sympathetic or helpful when I talked with them, and they suggested that I should have purchased their 5-year Samsung Service Agreement for $1750.00 when I had a chance. Really? They were supposed to call me back (within 24 hours) 10 months ago, and I'm still waiting. Complete waste of time, money, effort, energy and resources. "Do not ever buy a Samsung refrigerator because they are expensive junk", was the advice of my repair person, who has owned an appliance repair business for many years. I could have saved myself lots of frustration, and money, if I had done my research.

There are some big companies out there that you've probably never heard of, that know more about you than you can imagine.

They're called data brokers, and they collect all sorts of information — names, addresses, income, where you go on the Internet and who you connect with online. That information is then sold to other companies. There are few regulations governing these brokers.

Be careful when you share personal info on the internet...

Horrible experience with IKEA
Horrible experience with no resolution still! My husband and I ordered a $500 set of dressers and nightstands for our new house. We placed the order on May 7th and received a confirmation email which stated we would be contacted prior to the delivery. After nearly two weeks came and went with no update from the company, we started to get concerned.

After moving in, we had realized that the items we ordered were going to be too large for our room. I hopped on the phone to inquire about the status of the delivery and to see if it was possible to just cancel. I was not very happy after being told that there was a 110-minute wait... Yes... An ONE HUNDRED AND TEN MINUTE LONG WAIT to speak with a customer service representative. I thought it was a joke but quickly realized, they weren't kidding.

After checking the online tracker on May 20th, we realized the items were out for delivery so we took a sigh of relief and purchased new dressers, with the intent of receiving and returning the IKEA furniture. Around 6 pm that evening, I received a call from an unknown cell phone number. It was the IKEA delivery driver calling to let me know that his truck broken down but he actually lived around the corner and would be willing to bring the merchandise by after getting his new work truck within the hour. He also said that another driver could pick it up and deliver it at a later date.

I mentioned that we were planning to return the items and asked about our options. The driver stated that he would have dispatch call me in about 5 minutes. Eager to get our money back, we asked him to still deliver the items as soon as possible. We never received a call from the dispatcher and the driver never showed up with our furniture. When I called the number back, the driver did not answer and two days later, will still not return my calls.

My husband and I are FURIOUS that we are out $500 as new homeowners and still don't even have the furniture we purchased!! We can't get any assistance from customer service over the phone because of absolutely ridiculous wait times and when we visit the local store, nobody seems to know what's going on and can't help us. We just want our money back or our merchandise so that we can take it to the store and return it ourselves!

Please, please, please DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!! Just shop elsewhere and spare yourself the time and an unnecessary headache. If we don't get some sort of response from IKEA in the next few days as to what exactly is going on with our order, the matter will be escalated. It took IKEA 5 minutes to take that money out, we're not waiting months to see it refunded. We fully intend to hire an attorney, should the issue continue to persist.

Walmart sent me the product I bought in horrible condition
I purchased a BeautySleep Sanford Plush Mattress from Walmart.com and my mattress arrived at my door in horrible condition. The man who delivered it, from the start, asked me to get up into the small delivery truck and take a look at my purchase. Upon inspection, the plastic protection at the front (top) of the mattress had been broken open in several places, and the material/top of the mattress was embedded with oily-black semi-trailer brake dust or some sort of black STAINS! The delivery driver said that I could reject the delivery but that it would probably be best if I just ACCEPT DELIVERY, and he had me take photos of not only his original delivery invoice, which proved that his company had received the mattress in its horrible condition, but he also told me to take photos of the mattress; as he took photos of his own of the mattress once he had brought it up to my house.

The mattress was under $300.00, so it was a cheap purchase, but this should not mean that I should have had to accept a filthy mattress. Thanks to the WALMART.COM's choice of shipping/deliverers (Pilot Freight Services), and thanks to the fact that WALMART chooses to not respond to my complaints/photo proofs that they are totally irresponsible.

WHY I FEEL CHEATED
This is embarrassing, and so naive of us! But I have to tell this story. My friends and I were in Times Square and this guy was outside this theater place and had these cards for a comedy club and we desperately needed something fun to do! They were 20$ upfront. He kept telling us that famous people go to these kinds of comedy clubs, and other stuff like that to reel us in. We knew that we weren't going to see a celebrity, but it still seemed like fun since it was a comedy club. We stupidly bought the tickets. I think we were all a bit pressured into buying them, if I'm being completely honest. After we went in, we realized that you also HAVE to buy drinks for minimum 20$ too! I'm not even 21, and we all wasted a lot of money that night for literally nothing. The comedy show was crappy, and I just needed to pee in the most disgusting bathroom ever thanks to the 20$ in drinks that I spent.
Later on, I did some research, and there are a lot of people that were scammed in the same way that we were.

The first of June is my birthday, and during my birthday it's pretty normal for me to get a lot of messages, cards and a lot of emails. I usually open them all on my birthday, but I answer them the day after my birthday. It's not unusual for me to received e-cards, but this one was a bit different. It was from a random email, but the email said the name of one of my friends. It said that I needed to download/update a program so that the card could play itself. I didn't really think hard about it. If I see that something needs to be downloaded or updated, I just do it. When I clicked on the link, it actually downloaded a virus. My computer crashed right away, and the scariest part is that whoever did that to me had access to all my personal information. Even access to my funds.
I had to buy a new laptop because I hadn't invested in a good antivirus program, so they couldn't save my laptop. I lost a lot of money, sleep and I was insanely stressed just because of one stupid fraudulent e-card.

Phishing email from amazon.com
There was a time when I thought checking the headers of emails that looked like spam would give me enough information and keep me safe from fraudsters. This has changed. I am receiving emails from actual domain names of companies like Amazon and Paypal. People are receiving calls from customer service caller IDs of well known companies. Either fraudsters are becoming too smart or the companies are becoming too fixated on increasing their profits that they have stopped concentrating on probable loopholes in their systems.

The screenshot attached shows that the email is coming from Amazon and the proposed link (from the text of fake order no 192-773-7646) in the body of the email will take you to some other website to complete its heinous fraud.

I tried to find if Dean Clark was a writer. I found a few University professors by this name. There have been a few more prominent Dean Clarks.

1. Dean Clark was the voice of Berlioz in the Cartoon Movie "AristoCats" from 1970.
2. Dean Clark is a former ice hockey defenceman and head coach of the Prince George Cougars. Clark is also the former head coach of the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League.
3. Dean Clark (born 31 March 1980) is a retired footballer. He was originally a professional who made a handful of appearances for Brentford and then went on to play for a variety of teams local to north and west London, including making over one hundred appearances for Northwood.
4. Dean Clark (born 6 January 1968) is a New Zealand rugby league coach and former footballer who represented his country between 1989 and 1992.

So even though the email is not intended to be sent to me by amazon.com, I believe Amazon.com owes me a duty of care to secure its IT assets so that people do not use their domain names to send fraudster emails.

Cashcrate is a scam
Cashcrate offers surveys and tests. If you complete them, you receive a couple of cents. After having registered, I immediately started completing surveys. After 4-5, the site told me that it had no more surveys to offer. This is where the scam begins. They offer you 4-5 surveys per day. You complete them, thinking about that big money that should come anytime soon. But if you completed 4-5 surveys per day, it would take you months, perhaps even an entire year to reach 14-15 dollars, the minimum withdrawal sum. It's even possible to never reach that sum because there are days where they don't offer surveys at all. In my opinion, this is all done on purpose. In these surveys, you reveal a lot of personal information. 4-5 surveys of your personal information is a huge bonus for companies, which pay cashcrate to be as scummy as possible.

Globalmarket, another survey fraud
Globalmarket, like cashcrate, offers surveys for you to complete. From what I've read on other surveys, you need to complete between 60-100 surveys in order to make your first withdrawal. Now, one thing has to be taken into consideration: the personal information you put into these surveys are all shared to companies you will never hear from. After a couple of days, you will receive spam mail from these companies. Secondly, globalmarket provides you with no more than one survey per day, sometimes zero surveys for days. By the time you'll reach 14-15 dollars (making a first withdrawal possible), you'll have given so much information of yourself, these companies could literally clone you.

Dell sold me a broken computer
I purchased a computer from Dell in April of 2017. It had issues from the beginning with external monitors turning off during active use, and the display settings being randomly re-arranged or forgotten. Dell replaced the Thunderbolt Dock which was what the monitors are connected to. That did not solve the problem. I was asked to send the computer in to be fixed, which I delayed doing because that is a tremendous inconvenience to me, I work from and run a business from home with the computer they wanted me to return. I returned it, however, to be fixed because not only was the issue with the monitors still unresolved but after the latest Dell update I was forced to install, the computer would no longer allow me to log in.

I returned the computer, and got it back 10 days or so later. It was not fixed, I still couldn't even log in. I wrote back to support and told them they had not fixed the issue and was told to mail it to them again. I did so. Each time, they have been given specific instructions about what is wrong with it, which they should, of course, have in their files, but the consumer is asked to enter it all again anyway. The second time it was returned to me, nothing was ever done. The service description was blank, the computer still had the same issue. Then I went to the Better Business Bureau, and was contacted by a rep from Dell, and was asked to return the computer a third time for service. Against my better judgment, I sent it in, again. It was returned to me, AGAIN, STILL BROKEN.

The issue was not fixed at all, I knew within 30 seconds of turning it on that they had not fixed it. I told them I will not be returning it to them a 4th time (they have not offered to have it sent back again anyway), and that I want it replaced, as I have a full warranty on the system until the year anniversary of the date of sale, which is next month. They want to send me a used, refurbished computer, asking me to trust in their technicians to have fixed whatever was wrong with THIS one, which I will not accept. I didn't buy a used computer, I bought a new one that has never worked right. I have asked for a new replacement, or a refund, neither of which are being granted. So I spent over $2,000 on a computer with a full warranty that is unusable and Dell is incapable of fixing. I will never buy from them again.

GRIEVANCES
Breach of Contract
Financial Losses
Lack of Due Diligence

MESSAGE FROM Dell
we apologize for this error please send the computer in to be fixed. (got it back 10 days or so later. It was not fixed, I still couldn't even log in. I wrote back to support and told them they had not fixed the issue and was told to mail it to them again.)
then they offered to replace my new computer with a used, refurbished computer, asking me to trust in their technicians to fix whatever is wrong with THIS one.

Phishing for Apple ID - Suspicious Email
Symantec is cautioning users to be skeptical of emails claiming to be from Apple. This event presents scammers with more credibility when attempting to phish for Apple IDs, especially now that many users are concerned about the safety and security of their Apple IDs and devices. The emails adopt some of the following subject lines:

Please update your Apple account now
Apple – Your Account Is Not Confirmed
Please Verify Account Information For Your Apple ID
please verify the email address associated with your Apple ID

These subjects are used to trick users into opening emails, improving the odds that they may click on the links within them.

working remotely
First of all, this is not working remotely, this is gambling remotely on the internet. The email lets you go to a gambling site using binary options. Binary options "are based on a simple 'yes' or 'no' proposition.

Investopedia described the binary options trading process in the U.S. thusly:
Binary may be trading at $42.50 (bid) and $44.50 (offer) at 1 p.m. If you buy the binary option right then you will pay $44.50, if you decide to sell right then you'll sell at $42.50.
Let's assume you decide to buy at $44.50. If at 1:30 p.m. the price of gold is above $1,250, your option expires and it becomes worth $100. You make a profit of $100 - $44.50 = $55.50 (less fees). This is called being "in the money."
But if the price of gold is below $1,250 at 1:30 p.m., the option expires at $0. Therefore you lose the $44.50 invested. This called "out of the money."
The bid and offer fluctuate until the option expires. You can close your position at any time before expiry to lock in a profit or a reduce a loss (compared to letting it expire out of the money).[9]
Every option settles at $100 or $0, $100 if the bet is correct, 0 if it is not.

No one leaves money behind and then sends it to total strangers. This so called "Advance Fee Fraud" has become an industry in Nigeria, and the surrounding countries. Another common name is "419 fraud" after Section 419 of the Nigerian Penal code, the section that specifically prohibits this type of crime.

If your problem is not available on discussion forums, you are out of luck. The chat robot will ask you for your problem in detail and then his artificial intelligence with choose some links from the discussion form and throw back at you. As I said, you should hope that your problem already exists and solutions are posted by someone for the exact same scenario. Microsoft thinks that no new scenario can exist.

Every year for some reason I have to wash my computer. Format the hard drive and install windows again. Get it authenticated. Since I believe in the ethics and morals of effort and reward, I buy all my software, instead of downloading from torrents. And when I have a problem I have to waste days and days finding a solution, cause there is no place where I can just call and get help.

And that's why I have downloaded OPENOFFICE and deleted Microsoft office from my system. Openoffice is free, open source, and it works fine.

Godaddy sells your private info to spammers
The moment you register a domain with godaddy without buying the godaddy's "privacy package", you will start receiving emails from spammers like Dean Young <domainone@registrationdomainsite.com>, info@mysearchingine.com, and many more, trying to sell you web design packages, search engine optimizations and what not.

Who gives the exact name of the person and the name of the website to these spammers within an hour of the domain name creation/ registration. Gotta be godaddy itself or the people who work at godaddy.
