Google / google fortune kit

1 Los Angeles, CA, United States Review updated:

This is a complete scam! They tell you that it will only cost you $1.97 to purchase the Google Fortune Kit and you should receive the kit within 5-10 business days. This kit will teach you how to earn several thousand a week working from home on the internet for Google. First of all, I never got the Google Fortune Kit. Second, when I called them back to complain, they said they could not give me my money back even though, it was passed the 10 business days and I hadn't received anything from them. However as a courtesy, they said they would send it to me again but only if I subscribed to the optional services monthly which they had already taken the liberty to charge to my credit card, an additional $69.97. They had me cornered. This is wrong on so many levels. According to them, I had the option to cancel these optional services before the 14 days expires which started the day I order the google fortune kit. However if I did cancel (which I did) then They would NOT be able to send me the Google Fortune Kit afterall even though, I already paid for it by giving them the cost of the kit $1.97. Here are their exact words "We don't have the capability of refunding you the $1.97 for the Google Kit, we are so sorry". Must I remind everyone again, this is the Mysterious Google Kit that I never received from them in the first place. This is scam to get you to commit to other costly monthly gadgets you don't need. Even though they said they'd refund me the $69.97 which I have yet to see, I have figured they are still making a killing collecting $1.97 from every person that falls a victim to their deception. Just think about it? If you collected $1.97 from every person that lives in your state alone, how much money would you have right now? They are doing this nationwide in the U.S. MY POINT EXACTLY!

    Google - Misleading search results
    United States

    My 13 year old daughter went onto google and was looking at pictures of belly button piercing infections. I typed in belly button piercing infections and it was on the web page not the image page, and she went onto page 2 and clicked on something with the title - infected belly button pictures - belly button infections. When it came up it was not what it had advertised but instead it was hardcore porn pictures which were very disgusting and definitely something a 13 year old child should not be seeing. Obviously i am very angry that the titles are misleading and that children could have such easy access to such things. My daughter was quite upset as she thought she was going to get in trouble as she thought we may have thought she was looking at it.

    I do try to monitor what she goes on but when things like that happen it makes it very difficult.

    I sent for a CD from Google Money Profit with-in 10 days of receiving this CD my bank account began having automatic payments taken from BSM Grant search and Network Agenda. I have trustedGoogle to provide service and paid for the shipping on this offer. What I did not expect from this company was to be extorted for other services unauthorized by me. You can say what ever you want in your defense but this company is as crooked as the thieve on the streets.

    Goodbye Google!

    This is clearly stated on our websites:

    Google does not sponsor, endorse, and is no way affiliated with Google Money Profits™ or this promotion.

    I apologize for any misunderstanding regarding the services you've been receiving from our company. There are no commitments with the free product. However, there is a bonus free trial period to membership websites that accompanies the free CD and we do our best to disclose this as it is stated 4 times throughout the ordering process - on the sales page, the order page, the confirmation page and it is then also explained in the 1st paragraph of the Terms and Conditions of the offer. We offer the trial periods to give our clients a chance to use the service and see the value of it for themselves before they are billed for it. The trial periods are free for 7-30 days from the order date depending on which bonuses apply. We would not have charged you had you called customer service and canceled during the trial period. It is not our desire to bill clients who do not want the membership after the free trial offer.

    For customer service you may call 866-396-5695 Monday thru Friday 9am to 9pm Eastern Standard Time and they'll be happy to assist you.

    The Google Money Profit CD comes with a 7 day free trial to our members website. Where we offer one on one live chat assistance and it teaches users how to make money using Google’s AdWords and AdSense Programs. Customers can use these programs to create Google AdWord-based Advertisements and place ads on Google searches using Google AdWords. They can do this either for their own sites or they can use Google AdSense to funnel traffic through their sites to other sites and get paid for the traffic they generate. It also comes with two fast action bonuses first is a 14 day free trial to Grant Master that give our clients access to our Grant Resources website that is normally a $39.95 monthly charge for a reduced charge of $7.95 a month; as you are already a member of another of our programs. This site offers access to one of the largest grant data bases. Where you can find both government and private grantors. It offers information from Dr. Porter who is a licensed and certified grant writer. The information that is offered through our members website is more extensive than what other companies sell in coaching programs that cost thousands of dollars. So we feel that we are offering our clients the best value in the industry. The second fast action bonus is a 21 day free trial for Network Agenda an affiliate company that offers an online date book that will allow you to keep track of your daily schedule and will even send you reminders to your cell phone.

    Google - Australian websites
    Google

    Phone: ???
    Google.com

    Currently when I access information using Google (products, services, etc) an inordinately large number of Australian websites are listed-----sometimes a majority
    of the sites on the first page, at least, are Australian. There are two selection buttons at the top of a Google page----one for the web and the other for Australian sites.
    I always have the web button, not the Australian button selected. While I have nothing against our friends "down under", it seems foolish and inconvenient to list so many
    Australian websites for a U.S. customer like myself-------I'm certainly not going to have a product shipped from Australia when I can get it in the U.S.
    I haven't found an effective way to contact Google directly to complain about this---I don't think they offer customer phone support. What can be done to
    wake up the Google people to start giving some consideration to their U.S. customers!

    Google - put tons of unwanted gadgets on my home page
    Google
    United States

    Google is pushing gadgets, I guess. But they mis-identifed my needs at work, and filled up my iGoogle homepage with a eight or so gadgets I DID NOT WANT OR ASK FOR. As if that's not bad enough...they TOOK AWAY THE GADGETS I HAD SELECTED...time, weather, news.

    Obviously it's not really "my" page, if they have the right to change it at will. Not a very friendly act.

    Do not think for me Google, you get it wrong. Do not patronize me.

    I called your Google customer service and they refunded some of the money they took out but Google still kept $49.99 of the hard earned money of a 100% disabled Vietnam Veteran. That $49.99 is costing Google everytime I talk to someone. All the Veteran groups and alll my church friends know to stay away from anything with the google name.

    Dear Sir/Madam

    Google - earn fast cash
    Google Success Kit
    California
    United States
    earnfastcashwithgoogle.com

    Google will NEVER be used by me again. Since the terms and condititons I THINK are ###!! I was charged the $1.00, then the $29.95 just like everyone else. I didn't really think anything of it at first. I thought well for $30.00 I could try to make enough money through the LEGIT company. After the $29.95 charge today with still NO KIT i called to cancel. They will not reimburse me at all because it was stated in the terms and conditions. Then the stupid operator told me that the other companies are able to read your information. So listed in the terms and conditions are all the other companies that can get your credit card information and charge it as well, but GOOGLE is not willing to help you with this. You go find the list and have to contact and cancel all these accounts ...it will be easier to just cancel all the cards! This is SUCH A SCAM! Welcome to america eh!! We're such and honest and generous nation!!! Good luck to all!!

    Right after they charged me the 1$..I got this real bad feeling..Real bad..In 1 min. I called my credit card company and told them I lost my C/C..I went on line and cancelled with a live person the whole thing with a cancellation #..Now being without the C/C for 7 days was a bit of a hassle, but that is all I got charged, 1$..pretty lucky.

    This has no connection with Google - earnfastcashwithgoogle.com is just a scammer abusing the Google trademark.

    I receivewd an e-mail approximately 2 weeks ago regarding work at home opportunities offering a free kit for $1.95. I completed the application and my credit card has been charged the $1.95.

    On Friday 4/4/09 I received a telephone call regarding confirmation of this order. I was told that I would receive the kit via E-mail on that day with instruction on how to cancel if I was not interested. To date I have received nothing. I do not know how to contact these people. When I tried the e-mail address I was given, I was directed to this site.

    I had thought that Google was a reputable company, but obviously, I realize now that this was a scam. Please cancel this subscription immediately.
