This review was chosen algorithmically as the most valued customer feedback.

The Ads by Google are scamming us into authorizing a $1 charge to the credit card where over 30 days later the charges keep coming up (but from different companies associated with Google) and are a lot more than $1. They had me for a moment because I would buy anything for a $1 (but online...it is a lot different). So...buyer beware! A $1 is not actual in the virtual world. Cash and carry from now on. Good lord Google...are you that desperate? As for the Ads on this page itself, they are just as guilty! Especially the Identity Theft Protection! Yea you. Strike 3 and you are out!

I was asked to be removed from the mailing list and was directed back to the initial menu option, asked for a supervisor but was told she was out of the office. What telemarketing office has one superior that's out and why can't they remove me from the mailing list?!

It's illegal not to remove someone from a mailing list further more was never told to do so by using other outlets ie by Internet, simply ignored completely!

I gave my debit card number to buy a $1.97 kit for online google ads, now I find out they will be deducting money from my account every month. I tried to cancel but they tell me they cannot find my account and to call back. The women I was talking to did not speak very good English. She kept asking me to spell my name over and over and gave me a hard time, saying she could not find my account.

another fraud scheme involing the 1.97 for a cd. didn't even receive an e-mail confirmation but they immediately took out the 1.97. I have tried calling their number given to me by my bank fraud department. No one answers, their website is non-existent.

Google ads are covering over news articles that I would llike to read. About half way down the article, google ads are covering up several paragraphs. I cannot move them over or close them. What gives? They are all over the internet in every news media article. I do not recall them being in the articles. just over to the right. Can this be fixed?

WHEN THAT HAPPENS JUST PUT A STOP ON THE CARD AND GET ANOTHER. YES IT'S A HASSLE, BUT LESS AGGRAVATING THAN DEALING WITH SOME KNUCKLEHEAD.

Susan you need to watch your credit card or stop payment for this sweettracking co. Another fellow posted a notice and said that after the trial period they will charge your card $70.00 and will continue to do so on a regular basis.
