Consumer Complaints & Reviews in Palo Alto, California

Venrock Healthcare Capital Partners [VHCP] / could have tried harder

Jan 28, 2019

You know, I would be happy to admit that this fund is not a scam because they tried to provide something at least. They probably wanted to show us they are legit and not going to deceive us. But didn't try too hard. First of all, that's great they have two branches and their addresses, phone and...

Elysium Venture Capital / don't bother

Jan 28, 2019

Elysium Venture Capital states they are a management group focused on helping high growth technology companies access the global market, according to them they have strong ties in the United States, Europe, and China. But no one specifies what ties they are talking about and there are no...

Mercari / illegally retaining my earnings

Jan 25, 2019

I sold 5 items of which I had a net gain of $625.60. all transactions closed with buyers leaving Great feedback . The money is in my balance. I had a previous account I had forgotten about because O found the site to. Be beneath me. There was not a single complaint . Items were received...

Danhua Capital [DHVC] / hard to judge

Jan 23, 2019

DHVC (Danhua Capital) is a venture capital firm based in Palo Alto, CA, it's more than 5 years old and it probably used to be successful. Then something happened and now we see a single page website containing just logo and an email. I really don't know what happened, and I don't want to...

ZMT Capital / steer clear of them

Jan 23, 2019

ZMT Capital is a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm. That's what's written on their website. But the Silicon Valley is huge, why did they provide any specifics? That's what irritates much. I see only their portfolio. Not the smallest one. Maybe some of those projects are decent...

SparkChain Capital / not sure about them

Jan 18, 2019

SparkChain Capital is a crypto venture capital fund based in Palo Alto, CA. This fund is a part of SparkLabs Group - a group of companies related to various sectors. So I can say with some certainty that they are not scammers, even though it doesn't mean you don't have to be careful. I...

Scale Up Venture Capital / not impressive

Jan 17, 2019

I can't say that there was something that impressed me. Moreover, to me, this company seems to be founded by two (only two!) enthusiasts. They surely have some needed experience, but two people are not enough. Maybe they can manage everything together, maybe they don't make a lot of...

Ribbit Capital / somewhere in between

Jan 16, 2019

These kinds of fund always balance between being a scam and a decent investment project. You never know that, you never believe them. Most of the similar companies ruined crypto funds reputation, so everybody is so careful now. Including me. Why did I say they balance? Well, on the one...

Runa Capital Management / stay away

Jan 15, 2019

It's very strange that most of the team consists of russians and there is still no address where their office is located. The staff is multinational, in fact, I see only two people with non-russian names and last names. To contact them you can only send an email. It's bad enough they have...

Houzz / defective bubbled paint rusted in less than 1 year

Jan 14, 2019

I ordered a pair of Flash Furniture 24'' High Metal Counter Height Stools through Houzz. The items arrived with bubbled paint on both seats. Less than 1 year later, the paint has chipped off both stools where the bubbled paint was and they are now rusted and unusable. Flash Furniture said...

Innovation Endeavors / not transparent enough

Jan 4, 2019

Good but small presentation, a decent portfolio, a big team (they even added bios about everyone, it's such a rare thing for companies like this). Everything would be perfect if not one detail: they forgot to let people know how to contact the company. Of course, anyone would find a way. If...

GoldenSand Capital / GSR Ventures / 50/50

Dec 29, 2018

Can I call them scammers and untrustworthy? Hard to say at first glance. They don't seem to be decent either. Why? At least because there's no information about their team. The website states that the company was founded by Sonny Wu and Richard Lim, but who are they? Too famous to be introduced?...

Huuuge Casino by Huuuge Global (Anton Gauffin) / unethical business practice & false advertisement

Dec 3, 2018

Let me start by saying that Anton Gauffin's (CEO & Founder) Huuuge Casino is the largest, modern-day, unmonitored scam of our time. These crooks called "Huuuge Global" mask their so called "Game of Chance" app (Huuuge Casino) as a legitimate casino app when in reality there is no "Chance."...

The Hive USA / / No details

Dec 3, 2018

The hive company business area is investments. Including the blockchain technology. As long as people talk about it, investment companies will not stop using opportunities to earn money on crypto investments. The company itself doesn't seem to be a scam, as it works in different direction...

Baja Fresh / customer experience

Nov 25, 2018

An issue happened with a free taco coupon and I was trying to explain it to the cashier. He was immediately impatient and told me that the situation that happened isn't possible making me feel belittled and stupid. The manager came over in an attempt to understand the situation. She told...

AME Cloud Ventures / one-page website

Nov 23, 2018

Well, what can I say? If AME Cloud Ventures tried not to look like scam, they failed because it is similar to companies that steal money. The problem is that there's a lack of information. If the website was created for illustration only, then it's wrong too, because it should...

The Patio / bar/ nightclub

Sep 22, 2018

I went to this club to celebrate the beginning of the school year with my friends from Stanford on September 21. One of my friends and I were chatting close to the bar and this random security guy approached us out of nowhere pointing his flashlight to our faces and telling us to go...

Huuuge Casino aka Billionaires Casino / daily spin

Jul 22, 2018

Everyday you log in you get a daily spin which is suppose to be random. For over a year now my 2 accounts don't waiver on what the outcome is. It's one of two outcomes. It's either 560k or 810k. That's with the max days max likes max friends plus the spin which is always either 500k or...

Jun 26, 2018

hen I gave them a call, I spoke to a guy named "Marc". He was very rude and short on the phone. However, my fiancé and I decided to meet up with him anyways after seeing the reviews on yelp. He was very sketchy. His business is not registered in that location. My fiancé who works for the Fremont...

Stanford Health Care / stanford hospital

Jun 20, 2018

Stanford has to be the most poorly run hospital in the world. It really affects the image you think of when the Stanford brand comes to mind for college and quality of education. Hard to separate the two. How does a thirty minute MRI become a 14 hour ordeal? Go to Stanford for your MRI and...

Huuge Casinos / online gaming casinos

May 10, 2018

My debit card has been charged over and over by both huuge and huuge billionaire casinos in the past month. I made about half the charges but the rest were unauthorized. I am going to go to the bank to change my debit card but I suspect google as being complicit in this as they seem to...

Houzz / online retail purchase

Apr 25, 2018

Absolutely the pits. I have been looking at an item, put it in my cart. Got an offer from - went to purchase the items, and the price had changed. Email offer said 48 hours, but Houzz Customer "No" Service said the "vendor changed the price" and they could not do anything. ( Mike...

Apr 21, 2018

Paid FedEX directly to arrange a return of a vanity to Houzz. It was insured for $500. It arrived 4/3/18 to their Portland OR warehouse. I was notified on 4/12/18 it was received successfully and I could expect a return in 3-5 days. Then a few days later they said it was damaged & I would...

Bring A Trailer Media / blackballed from making a comment

Mar 2, 2018

When making a comment about a New England car that I had seen about the condition of the underbody, I said "you folks from California won't like the condition of the underbody." This was near the auction's end. It was removed by BaT with no reason expressed by them and all...

The Cheesecake Factory / poor manager stuck up attitude

Jan 14, 2018

I visit your location on 1/13/18. My service was poor, and my food wrong. I was sitting in the bar area. I asked to speak to a manager. The server rolled her eyes, and said, "Ok". A man came to the table with such a stuck up attitude. He didn't do anything except just stair at me, and knod...

Reward Zone USA / $1000 amazon gift card

Dec 12, 2017

I find this quite ridiculous that I'm this website complaining about this specific problem. I was told that if I completed one silver/gold offer and eight platinum offers that I would be rewarded with a $1000 Amazon Gift Card. I have reclaimed my incentive time and time again, but still...

HP Inc. / hp officejet 150 printer

Dec 11, 2017

I am in Alberta, Canada. I am having ongoing problems with the HP Officejet 150. It rejects genuine HP ink cartridges. This problem started around March 2017. At that time, I spent countless hours troubleshooting over 3 days. I finally got the printer working. The same problem, happened...

Vinted / disappointed

Nov 27, 2017

Please, never order from them. The main reason is that most of the items are garbage, poor quality. There are a lot of website like this if you know what I mean. Why do we need another one, that also has a very terrible customer support and no protection for both: buyers and sellers. Impossible to...

United Parcel Service [UPS] / "sorry we missed you..." with no attempt to deliver

Nov 24, 2017

At 10:09 am on Friday, November 24, I receive an email while sitting at my desk that UPS package (Tracking # 1ZV6225Y0493177936) had a delivery attempt. I contacted UPS immediately since I neither received a call from the dialed to buzz the driver in or a call/text on my mobile # which i...

Houzz / nothing positive to say

Nov 14, 2017

My complaint is very typical and not new. Many of their customers had the same situation, but I never thought I would be in their shoes. And I must say there's nothing to be excited about, it makes me feel terrible. I ordered two chairs from them and was immediately charged. Two week...

Vinted / never again

Nov 2, 2017

If you want a great service and high-quality items you knocked the wrong door. This website sells garbage, terrible cheap products made by blind mice. As I just said, be prepared to encounter a zero customer service. And I'm not joking, guys. I personally desperately need their help. But it'...

Tophatter / item # [protected]- [protected] complaints

Oct 5, 2017

I have refused these items meaning I didnt get tgem.. they were returned and the response I received from the customer service personnel was I didn't return them in 7 days.. I have no understanding on how a item can be returned in 7 days but they give the seller 40 days to send a item. I'm...

Tophatter / very sad

Oct 4, 2017

Well, I used to order from them several times and none of them was good enough. Every time there was something wrong. The quality is always poor, so the price is low. Moreover, not all of the items arrive on time. The package delivery is often split into several parts, so within a month or...

Josephine / did not give me correct receipts and bad service

Sep 30, 2017

Date of Purchase: 9/30/2017 Membership #: [protected] I did a purchase at Costco 9:24 AM this morning and completed my purchase around 10: 00 AM. I was the first customer with that cashier and the receipt was not printed out clearly, actually it was almost blank. The cashier sent me to a...
