Dotless Domain / They scammed me for $2190.00
I have receive calls from Dotless Domain for several months before I decided to listen to what they had to say about their business. What they (I talked to a man first and then he turned the call over to a women) explained to me seemed at the time very promising. I was told that there are 30, 000, 000 people who have downloaded their toolbar and with the common phrases they had available I would surely have business. I couldn't understand how those phrases could be available since they were so common but I was assured that they were. The phrases were natural products and natural weight loss. Can they prove that 30, 000, 000 people have downloaded their toolbar? I don't see how. After going through their presentation I was convinced that this was a legitamate company and surely they couldn't charge that much money for this long and be a scam. Also what convinced me was that they showed me the BBB rating. Later I tried to look it up myself and I couldn't find it on the BBB. What was listed on the BBB was Webmenu which apparently is partners with Dotless Domain and other companies like Solutions for the Net or S4TN, and more. They all do the same thing which is to prey on unsuspecting victims like me.
I was asked by Fiona if I had an American Express card and I told her that I didn't. I found out later that American Express is a 24/7 company and it was after hours when I talked to her, so if I found out in time that they were scams I could have stopped the charge before it went through. Unfortunately I didn't. After I made the credit card transaction Fiona told me that she would call me back and give me a walk through the back office in about three days once it was set up. I never got a call back. I finally called them back and talked to Alec. She told me that she would call me back in a week. She never called me back either. I spent $2190.00 and this is the treatment I get? I called back after a week and talked to Alec again. She went on and gave me a two-minute walk through and didn't cover everything because later I noticed more things on the back office that I didn't understand nor did she ever touch on it. Also, every time I tried to enter into the back office by clicking on 'traffic' I got a big security warning telling me to get off that website. Later I read on FCC about pfishing and spyware and that account numbers and personal information can be gotten from one's computer. I decided it was best to not go back to Dotless Domain since I know now that I cannot trust them. After finding this out I called Dotless Domain and told them that I want a refund and I want them to take me off their so called advertising campaign. I was told that once I got it started they can't stop it nor give me a refund. I found several complaints on the internet about Dotless Domain. I believe the tracking system they have is bogus and the claim of 30, 000, 000 toolbar downloads is false advertising. I called several people who have bought into this company and absolutely no one had any results yet the back office stats show that in six months about 10, 000 people visited our websites. I was promised that out of 10, 000 visits I would get at least 2% response rate. I got none and neither did any of the people I called. I personally don't know if I got 10, 000 visits recorded on my stats because I stopped checking my stats because of the security warning. I stopped checking my stats at about 1000 hits or views that showed on each key phrase. I noticed that each key phrase always had about the same number. I also noticed when I was on the internet that when I typed in any word or phrase a web site would pop up that is not related to what I typed in and that is very annoying and that leads me to believe they have it set up so that our web sites pop up randomly no matter what key word or key phrase is typed- that is very annoying. From what I could see the main people they target are people who are distributors for some company and since we are all trying to make money we are not trying to buy from each other especially since most of us are in the same related field and Dotless Domain employees know this. They make empty promises and false claims. Very Very misleading.
I read on the internet on a blog post that one of the employees of one of these related companies ( they use different names, all partners with Webmenu) apologized to us victims about his job and that he feels bad about what he is doing but he needs a job right now and he has to work for awhile longer until he can find another job. Even an employee is admitting that what they are doing is wrong! He also said that he wishes he knew about this company before he got hired. Why are they still in business?
