Billed subscription charges without notification
We first contacted this company for a test of promotion they offered for keywords. They charged us $7.95 and said we can test it. They then continued to charge our credit card, and when we requested a refund, they cancelled the subscription and refused.

Yes i agree they are the biggest scammers. Ineedhits.com is a real scam and they will charge your credit cards without authorization after you have cancelled subscription.

Watch out for this scamming company when using!

    Buyer Beware!
    They keep charging your credit card after you make a purchase. Almost all of their services are subscription based even though they DO NOT tell you and WILL NOT refund you.

    Watch out! They dont care about the customers...only getting people's credit card numbers...Scam company! If they cared they would make subscription service optional...not force it on you whether you knwo about it or not.

    I asked now not only for a refund (I am able to track hits) but for them to cancel my service which amazingly enough they continue to bill now again for the 3rd month. Have a stack of printed emails canceling as big as my pinkie. They totally ignore me. CROOKS!!! A pain in the you-know-what. HATE THEM!!!

    @DonniA - To make it easy for customers to control their services, your account, maangement area allows you to cancel and pause your services at any time. Simply login and click cancel on the services you don't want renewing. Is there a reason why you haven't cancelled the services yourself?

    In terms of your refund, what service did you buy? If you ordered a guaranteed traffic service that failed to deliver visitors to your website - then you probably are entitled to a refund. My fear is that your service might not have promised traffic.

    Please speak to our customer service team via Livechat so we can help find an amicable solution for eveyone.

    Both of these companies advertise and/or are promoted on StatCounter.

    In my experience thus far they both are not worth wasting your money on.

    LINXBOSS - This company offers a back link service (outlawed by Google) The warnings signs from them were obvious from the outset, no contact details or employee information on the website. I emailed them and someone called Erik (who under pressure says he is Erik Wickstrom) replied very quickly and helpfully but when he was asked this :-

    Erik

    I think I am almost there, sorry for so many questions.

    i am worried about the way in which you operate / portray yourselves. Why all the cloak and dagger approach? i.e. no address, no telephone numbers no company details, no officers of the company etc...?

    Who precisely are you hiding from?

    I think I may start by promoting our www.xxxx.c o m website which is not a major brand of ours as I fear that we may suffer from some backlash from Google if we use our main www.xxxx.c o m brand as it already has a reasonably high Google search ranking.

    Is there a danger any domain we promote via your service could be blacklisted by search engines in this way? if so, then I will go ahead with xyzxyz.c om

    Regards
    Jon

    I received no more replies despite sending it a number of times, nothing at all ?

    You can draw your own conclusions from that.


    INEEDHITS - Offer a quick hit (1000) service and they do for sure generate "hits" but that is all they do, literally. If you expect the "hits" to be visits or views from real people forget it. They obviously have an automated system, this is one of them (http://www.adv-adserver.com/tserve/itrafficserver.html?) that records a "hit" on your website, that does not record anymore than a 0 sec hit. Their customer service is 100% dreadful...but they take your money fast enough. So if all you want is to look at your StatCounter stats and see it go up then this is for you.

    STAY AWAY

    This is the ongoing transactions as we speak. I have tried several times to remove these subscriptions from my account and the system seems to fail every time. It appears you do not buy a one time service from them. You are automatically entered into this subscription service. When you try to remove the service the system will tell you there is an issue and try to come back later. This is a wash rinse repeat issue. I just got off the phone with my bank and they told me that they blocked the costumer ID affiliated with INEEDHITS but the company used another ID to continue charging my account.

    My only option was to cancel my debit card and order a new one!!! This is a horrible option for obvious reasons but
    I had to do it, No other way to stop them. They have an office in California and Australia. I have forwarded everything I have to my attorney and will be filling a suit.

    I have purchased many many types of these services from so many different companies. I have only had a positive result from one company. Never before have I ever had a company like INEEDHITS pull this type of s****!!!

    For the record and to help everyone out looking for real traffic I found www.easyonlinehits.com to have amazing traffic. I am running www.raffleflorida.com and have been buying traffic from him as fast as he can send it. I am not seeing an amazing transfer rate in sales but the analytics is the best I could ask for. My bounce rate is below 17% and my time on site is over 10mins. My sales per cost is profitable enough to continue the traffic, I will not get rich off of it or anything but when you figure I am making money and have been placed in the alexa rankings of the top 5, 000 websites in the world for traffic. That is a nice marriage, I have since contacted the owner Joe and have become friendly with him. His traffic is real and that can be verified!!

    Good Luck and stay the hell away from INEEDHITS, I NEED HITS, INEEDHITS.COM, WWW.INEEDHITS.COM IS A SCAM !!!


    P.S. INEEDHITS traffic is not qualified traffic, The traffic that actually visited my site was under 4, 000. Sounds good right? I ordered 100, 000. Is a shame because someone who can send me qualified traffic that translates into sales will receive a check for 1.5 million. No need to run a scam with that type of income.

    Yeah, they rip you off by dragging you to use your money for an in house credit. why would you do that to think that their services suck??? I hate this company!!! To make it simple, issue the refund especially when the service did not happen in any way. Why is it so hard for them to give your money back???

    @chuelle - In situations where customers change their mind, we're not in a position to give refunds as work commences almost immediately after an order is received. In these circumstances, a store credit is provided as a gesture of goodwill. If in your case the services were not started, then we might be able to come to some other arrangement. Please contact me directly via marketingdept[at]ineedhits.com so I can look into this matter further.

    Where are the honest companies and why is the internet full of shisters around SEO and many other industries selling invisible products. I have tried paying for expensive SEO once before but this still does not insure a fair service and again it was a Scam dealt with by small print. I hope the cowboys get there just dues one day and I just worry that they are going to have children and nurture this growing society of fraud... where will it all end ? Love thy neighbour I once heard, not take them to the cleaners !

    Wow, I was doing a search for something and this thread popped up. I am surprised because I user I Need Hits for all my SEO, I really don’t understand what all the fuss is. There is live support via live chat. They do have subscription services and you do need to cancel if you don’t want it anymore. I have found that some services don’t work for me but then others have worked REALLY well. I don’t know what to say – it seems to work for me and I have never had a problem.

    I started my promotion with ineedhits and had the same experience. They sold me the following Link Building, G-Boost, Top-Up Traffic, and QuickHits – 1000. I received 368 hits but keep in mind that I was out promoting my site. I don’t know how many of these were from their work but still not 1000 hits. I still have no links back to my site other than the one I have created. I would not buy any type of promotions from this group so buyers beware. Also you have to chat with them and can not call and speak with a real person. http://www.a2zlist.net
