the social media people net66scam

firstly they try to sell you either Google search engine optimization or Facebook advertising.. be warned you will not receive either ...what will happen is ...they sneakily attempt to get you on a rolling contract which takes 30 days written notice to cancel by then you've probably already paid a whopping £500 for something that might cost £20 to do your self . These people will then threaten you will all sorts of stuff including personal debt collectors and legal action if you should cancel your debit / credit card ...
these say they work in london have a po box address in london but are really a manchester out fit with 2 adresses

    Has anyone had dealings with The social media doctor? Are they the same company?
    They promise 1000ikes on Facebook and seems very similar to all the comments above.
    Promises that don't happen, they charge £118 month with 30 day cancelation they did raise the likes however within days they came off and they told me that Facebook have removed them as they believe the likes are fake !! Says it all really unfortunately I did sign up and am now being threatened as I refuse to make one final payment.
    I feel frustrated as I feel this is a con but don't know where to go with it.

    It looks like MonkeyFish is not linked to Net66.

    (See thread: MonkeyFish Marketing Ltd — Untrue )

    But how does that reflect on Mr Collins who owns internetmarketingquestions.co.uk?
    In the past few days he was in contact with one of our group of ex customers of TSMP/Net66, who reports that Mr Collins says he doesn't work for Net66. And yet his ex-employer says he does.
    To be sure if you look at the website it LOOKS like it was written by Net66.

    Who can clear up the confusion?

    So as always it all comes back to Net66 looking bad, but this time with a new twist.

    Net66 deserves no sympathy when another SEO company – MonkeyFish – tries its very best to disassociate itself from the Manchester scammers. Even though the other company is just a few miles from the Manchester base of The Social Media People/Net66 it says wants to have nothing to do with them.
    It’s very revealing: If MonkeyFish is an honest company they fear their reputation will be ruined by association with crooks at Net66. If MonkeyFish does have something to hide it just shows that even a questionable company doesn’t want to be seen as ‘in bed with’ Net66.
    But that doesn’t explain one apparent link, at: http://www.internetmarketingquestions.co.uk -
    which seems to be run by MonkeyFish AND promotes Net66 as follows: “Net66 are remarkable in arrange of services I believe a company that does SEO and Web design has an advantage over anyone else in the industry. Net66 is a company based in Manchester...”

    So is Net66 independently dishonest, or does MonkeyFish Marketing assisting?

    I can confirm that MonkeyFish Marketing have nothing to do with Net66. If you think we are connected for any reason, please let us know how so we can remove any related information. In no way, shape or form have we ever worked with Net66 and are disappointed that as a reputable company we have been dragged into this matter somehow.

    Tom, I neither hate, nor despise you. Those are too strong of emotions for someone I have never met and never spoken too directly. I just think you are an idiot and that you are leading others into the lions den that is Stephen P Jones aka Moss. Again, with unabashed ignorance, Tom you assume to know who I am. Hey Tom, here's an idea. Anybody who reads your evidence against SMP would likely conclude you were scammed...so why not post the evidence that I am SMP. Tom, please, show at least a shred of evidence that I am an alias of the SMP. But, hey, don't forget when I made the international phone call and confirmed a previous phony number SMP was using. How does that jive with your assumption? I remember another little movie you could use a lesson from...(ANYONE who can name the movie with get a High Five from me, a little US flick that propelled Sean Penn to fame) Never ASSUME anything! When you assume there is the potential to make an AS* out of U or ME= ASSuME.. FYI the Kinison reference came from Kinison's cameo in a Rodney Dangerfield flic---I don't know anyone with even a scintilla of humor who does not laugh when teacher Kinison goes off on an ignorant student..thats why I though it a good reference for you Tom.

    Tom F As I said above, resign yourself to a lifetime of being scammed because you are not able to think intelligently. You got scammed by the SMP and now you are setting yourself up to be scammed by your new buddy Stephen p moss Jones (as well as anyone else who follows your advice and seeks help from Badbiz).
    The funniest thing is that you have labeled ME as the social media people. That how truly daft you are. Once again, you think you KNOW something that do Not know. That's called incurable ignorance Tom. When you don't know, and you don't know that you don't know. Incurable. You can't fix what you don't acknowledge.
    How ironic--you think I am SMP but I am not, while you think Steve Moss Jones is a consumer activist that helps people when the reality is that he is a con man with a criminal record. I don't know about you Tom, but I DO NOT knowingly associate with Criminals. You do. Say it Tom. Taste how nasty it is to say to yourself out loud-- I, Tom F., like to associate with criminals. SAY IT! SAY IT! {and just for humor imagine I am yelling at you in the voice of Sam Kinison).

    I for one have never defended the SMP. I just didn't rally against them because the threat of Badbiz Badbizz Stephen Jones Moss is a much bigger threat to the public than SMP. Not to mention, It really made me angry that TOM F in his zeal to attack the SMP was giving legitimacy to the biggest con man I have ever had the misfortune of meeting. Basically, Tom F gets ripped off so screw everyone else. He pretended to care about other consumers--horse manure! He only cares about himself. He aligned himself so fully with Moss that after a while, when efforts to get through to him failed, I started thinking---GOOD! If somebody is going to get ripped off, well, , , lets just say it couldn't happen to a better person. Tom F you are responsible for exposing many an innocent person to a criminal with a criminal record who masquerades as a savior to the downtrodden! For shame Tom F! You didn't investigate Badbiz any better than you did the SMP. So, Tom F resign yourself to a lifetime of scams because you seem incapable of discerning promise from reality.

    The Social Media People’s (Net66) early posts on this forum. Number 4.

    Once again, ‘just for the record’, below is the full TSMP post – its fourth. This time from 11 May 2011.
    The post was later removed along with many more of TSMP’s contributions. TSMP must have been SO ashamed about them!

    This post followed the first one from Tom Faulkner a few days earlier. He'd just registered on ‘Complaintsboard’ saying he was an ex-customer, willing to have TSMP expose details of the way their business had been conducted.
    Instead of taking the opportunity to show him up, TSMP confirmed he was indeed a customer; and launched an attack, but provided no supporting evidence.

    Unedited TSMP post 11-05-11( As always, ALL typos, grammar & spelling errors are as originally written by TSMP's Director TSMP):

    To All,
    As previously stated, earlier comments on here have been written quickly whilst tensions were high, and on reflection could of maybe done with more planing and a thorough check. Having said that, my, and the companies number 1 prioty is existing customers. This is what takes up most of our time and to be honest coming to this forum to defend ourselves from ridiculous comments is not as important as deailing with, and assisting any of our customers questions or queries.

    Tap in to google most of trusted and/or household name and the word complaint on google & you will find a complaints.
    As previously mentioned, when you have as many clients as us, you are bound to have a handfull of unhappy ones.
    I can not stress this enough!!!
    It pleases me that the only valid complaints against us are of a grammatical nature. Again, even though I speak for the company, I am a human bieng, and guess what, we make mistakes occasionally. I could list errors on other post on here, but that is not the point of my response. I am meirly trying to get the truth out there about us and grammatical mistakes are not as relevant.Yes, there is 1 or 2 accusations, but we are yet to see any proof.
    May I also re-iterate:
    IF YOU HAVE A GENUINE ENQUIRY OR ARE UNHAPPY WITH OUR SERVICE I HAVE LISTED OUR CONTACT DETAILS YET AGAIN AND AS PREVIOUSLY STATED, WE WILL BE HAPPY TO HELP. IF YOU ARE A GENUINE CLIENT YOU WILL HAVE YOUR ACCOUNT MANAGERS NUMBER ANYWAY.
    THE ONLY REASON YOU WOULD WRITE A VAGUE, ACCUSATORY COMMENT ON HERE WITHOUT ANY ACTUAL EVIDENCE IS TO TRY TO DEFAMATE OUR COMPANY NAME, AND TO BE HONEST I SUSPECT MOST OF THESE COMMENTS ARE LIES AND/OR COMPETITORS MAKING STORIES UP.
    Now, whilst I would like to sit and respond to these comments/accusations/requests more regularly, Hobby Horse is correct, I am a busy man.
    We have a large customer service team and and many, many clients to stay in contact with. Our existing customers are much more important than anything else to us as a business and I will NOT jepordise our level of service for anything, so my responses will be limited.

    Lastly, and rather worryingly, we recieved a call today from an annoymous individual who knows Mr. Tom Faulkner . Mr Faulkner also has commented on here as "Elemental" (he has admitted to this on a recorded telephone call & neglected to mention it on here for some reason. To read his post, it's as if its his first involvement) .
    It transpires this individual may be somewhat dangerous as we have had Numerous clients ring to say they have had contact with him and I'm sure by the sounds of it, he will have been contacting members on here. Whilst I am happy to do my best to ensure everyone's experience with us is the best humanly possible, and I may get frustrated with ignorance when expaining certain aspects of business, we would never take anything personal.
    After all, in life people disagree, It seems this individual may actually be obsessive. The caller also forwarded me to a group on Facebook called "Faulkner Fans" which can be found:
    https://www.facebook.com/?q#!/group.php?gid=31152303899
    on which there is many young men, maybe jesting, but commenting on various things. I am not making any insinuations as to the integrity or the credibility of this individual, I am merely warning people and presenting facts for you to initiate your own opinions.
    It seems he has ruffled a few other peoples feathers in the past with his actions, and whilst we are pursuing this individual for legal reasons if he is contacting any members on here, I would advise you do not meet this person, as we have had some information brought to our attention by a local man who knows him that is cause for concern. (although we are only passing on information that may or may not be true. The Social Media People Ltd (UK) has no opinion and would not wish to commit lielous stements about any individual and/or company. After all libel is a serious offence and comes with VERY large penalties.)
    He may seem to be getting his integrity well and truely tarnished, but he is the only person to consistently question our integrity, both with comments on here and over 50 emails & phone calls to date. I cant seem to find any information on companies house for this company. Also there is whats know as unethical anchor text on the website: http://www.practicalroadskills.co.uk <- The text at the bottom is anchor text soley to try to rank well on google (unethical/black hat search engine optimisation)Also I have just done a search on Registered ADI Instructors in: BN41 2TE, which I happen to know is the catchment area of Mr. Faulkner as he has listed it on the internet. Have a look for yourself. http://finddrivinginstructor.direct.gov.uk/DSAFindNearestWebApp/findNearest.form?postcode=BN41+2TE&d-447263-p=4I am genuinely sorry to have to stoop as low as to question peoples laurels & integrity, but as an honest man wqorking with good & honest people, anybody who wishes to insult our integrity will proven wrong and we will question theirs. Rightly so I beleive, as I have previously mentioned, question or website colours our terms, or even our grammar BUT DO NOT QUESTION OUR ETHICS AS IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US THAT WE MAINTAIN THE MENTALITY AND ETHICAL PRINCIPLES OUR BUSINESS IS BUILT ON.

    PS. Hobby Horse, I will enquire to the exact date as to when our number was changed. It is a central switchboard number. As customer service agents we have direct line's and departmental numbers we usually give to clients.
    Our main number is issued in public domains and on websites so we do not have to use account managers lines as it may hinder the level of service we provide.
    Again, if any body would like to learn more about our products & services, or to get help with your account with us get intouch, we are happy to help.

    Another early post from The Social Media People – ‘for the record’:
    Here is the full post from The Social Media People from around 6 May 2011 (its 3rd post on this forum).
    The post was later removed along with many more of TSMP’s contributions. They must have been SO ashamed about them!

    (ALL the typos, grammatical & spelling errors are as originally written by the Director of TSMP.)
    The post reads as follows:
    “Steven Jackson 0 votes
    FIRSTLY, PLEASE BE AWARE WE HAVE CHANGED THE CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER RECENTLY, WE CAN NOT GET THE SAME NUMBER, BUT WE HAVE GOT IT TO BE JUST 1 DIGIT DIFFERENT.
    Thank you everyone for pointing out slight errors.
    Admittedly there was a few errors in there, which I make no excuses for. I was running high with emotion when I have written stuff on here as it is insulting to be dealing with some of the accusations.
    I may also state our father & Son partnership owners actually began trading 12years ago, although
    NOT as The Social Media People Ltd (UK). Again this was my earlier typo error.
    I have liased with Mr & Mr. Mcvey & they feel disclosing too much information is counter productive as many business they have ran over the past decade have been registered to theirt home address, and some people on here seem to have a real issue with them, and anyone reading these comments would agree the last thing you need is to be worried in your own home.

    * WHILST I UNDERSTAND SOME APPREHENTIONS MENTIONED, I MUST SAY THERE IS NO EVIDENCE TO MAKE US LOOK LIKE THE SCAMMER WE WERE INITIALLY CALLED. WE DO NOT HAVE TO PROVE OUR HISTORY, IF YOU CHOOSE NOT TO BELIEVE IT THEN FAIR ENOUGH, EVERYONE IS ENTITLED TO AN OPINION.
    As previously mentioned we welcome any contact and feeback from customers/potential customers.
    FAO: runaway6
    I welcome you to give us your company details so I can look into this in more detail.
    Although I have to add some feedback initially for clarity.
    1. We NEVER EVER EVER claim to be from Facebook. If you Identify yourself I will happily post a manuscript of the call in question and/or allow you to listen to the call on the proviso you put right that allegation.
    2. The sentance: "Money was extracted with the promise of an advertisement, which if it ever existed, certainly did not make its way to Facebook" is a direct insult to our integrity & I will do all in my power to prove it did. After all I can, we have nothing to hide, hopefully you will not either.
    3. Why would we, let alone anyone threaten Fraud when you "tried to cancel the agreement". Again any proof of this action on the basis of what you have said is welcomed and will dealt with fairly, as is everything at our company.

    Again, untill you reveal your true identity I am unable to post all the details to prove you wrong.

    May I also add, it is delightfully refreshing to see some sense posted on one of these forums rather than people saying
    scam, fraud etc etc. just because they believe they have had a bad experience.
    WHEN WILL PEOPLE STOP MAKING ILLEGAL & RIDICULOUS ALLEGATIONS OF FRAUD SCAM WHATEVER ELSE JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR OWN OPINION - The answer, sadly, probably never.
    The problem is, especially with what we do, is people lie when they have a bad experience to insinuate that they have been the victim of misleading trading practice. If you think that if you should be entitled to a guarantee of business when you pay for advertising then you should shut down your business. On the same note, if anybody ever guarantee's advertising to work, ignore them. Nobody can, EVER. We do not and never will lie to customers.
    We offer an advertising service. It is fantastic, direct targeted marketing at its best. Having said that, anyone who knows anything about business will understand advertising doesnt work 100% of the time. Don't get me wrong most of our clients see an amazing return on investment. With over 12, 000 customers, 1 or 2 people claiming to be unhappy is a testament to us, our products and our dedicated customer service team.

    ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO TRY TO INSULT THE INTEGRITY OF THE SOCIAL MEDIA PEOPLE WILL BE PROVEN WRONG.
    PLEASE DO NOT CONFUSE OPINION WITH FACT!!!
    As previously stated we are going to be working on a forum for actual clients to share feedback and opinions about us, our services and our trading practice's. All narrowminded liers who try to insult our integrity will be named, shamed and we pursued accordingly to the severity of the allegations and/or comments.
    AGAIN WE WELCOME ANY CONTACT AND FEEDBACK FROM GENUINE PEOPLE WITH GENUINE ENQUIRIES, FEEDBACK OR APPREHENSIONS ON USING OUR SERVICES AFTER READING BOGUS REVIEWS & OPINIONS CARELESSLY POSTED AROUND THE INTERNET.

    The Social Media People’s early posts on this forum. 2. (Net66)
    Just for the record, below is the full post written (but later removed!!) about 20 April 2011.

    The original rant includes the address/contact details for one of TSMP’s customers and another company’s lawyer. I have removed just those details (*/*/*/ edit */*/*/) to data-protect the people concerned – something which TSMP clearly had no concerns about!
    (TSMP was however careful to remove the name of its own recipient of the legal letter to protect itself!! – Typical!)
    The post shows that its claimed ‘big-name’, ‘blue-chip’ client was very unhappy at being illicitly linked to the scammers at TSMP.
    (NOTE: ALL the grammatical and spelling errors are as originally written by the Director of TSMP.)
    The post reads as follows:

    In response to yet even more false allegations, we can confirm we have conducted successful marketing for a Subway® Franchises, I will post content from an email directly from then as reading an above email may seen as if we have insinuated to work with a company that we dont - CERTAINLY NOT.
    We have had contact with Subway® Head Office in USA and are exploring ways to discourage all competitors from contacting them for refernces & wasting their time. This probably will see the removal of the subway logo as we hhave 1000+ views a day to our website & a lot of people are wasting their time.

    It seem people still do not want to take us at face value so I will give an explination & back up with the necesarry evidence:
    Here is correspondance with Franchise world Headquarters LLC who own & look after Subway issues.

    I AM FORCED TO SHOW CONVERSATION BETWEEN US & THEM TO SHOW PEOPLE WHO MAY NOT KNOW US AS THE ETHICAL COMAPNY WE ARE:

    I have been duped into their scam by inadvertently rolling into their contract which can only be cancelled by post though they provide services online.
    Has anyone taken these guys to their local county court?
    By law they must provide evidence of the "verbal" contract entered into either by writing or by a recording of the call. Has anyone requested this as i am about to.

    If anyone has taken this matter further I would much appreciate a response. They have failed to respond to a number of emails sent to them. Companies like this should be more heavily regulated and shut down.

    My Name is Steven Jackson, I am a customer service Director employed by The Social Media People, and I have researched all of these claims and found no evidence to support any of them.
    We are Launching a Blog on our Website for CLIENTS NOT COMPETITORS to give honest reviews based on experience.
    In fact, if you visit our website you can see the clients we currently have on board, in line with the ASA regulations, it is illegal to claim affiliation with any companies that may not be associated to you. Ask yourslef this:
    DO YOU THINK A COMPANY THAT IS A SCAM WOULD HAVE CLIENTS SUCK AS: SUBWAY, REVOLUTION, BAIRSTOW EVES, MENKIND LTD, BAGUETTE EXPRESS & EURO DEBT???? NEITHER DO WE, THATS WHY WE LIST THEM!!!

    The facts are all of the previous reviews are written by competitors. It is no co-incidence that we, shortly after these posts were listed, began to recieve many many many emails & offers from "reputation managment" companies.
    With a little research we have found a lot of connections from complaintsboard.com to these companies & its no wonder they never check any reviews as they just want paying to get the off the google listings.
    WE ARE LAUNCHING A BLOG & REVIEW CENTRE FOR VERIFIED CLIENTS - THE ABOVE COMMENTS ARE LIES!!
    If you still have your suspicians check this info out: http://www.zimbio.com/Exposing+Scams/articles/GKoWvawaAXB/ONLINE+EXTORTION+consumer+sites+Complaintsboard
    or simply google: "complaintsboard.com extortion" & Inline with our policy & advice please do your research, do not read 1 comment & form an opinion, look at what has been posted in factual terms ie. backed up with evidence.

    Generally we appreciate customer feedback, and welcome it. We resent with passion fraudulent libelous comments & information posted on extortionists websites online and will fight them, if not just for us, for the good of every single hard working business person out there.

    Fathering children to speak openly like this on public forums what does one expect.

    Social Media Experts? Anti-Social-Behaviour experts perhaps better explains their business plan?

    Absolute disgusting.

    Youv’e got to be suspisious about Camilla4785 when the posts always just slag off people, and she removed all the old posts of hers which she did in August. Why was she worried about them? Even then all the posts were just the same and never stuck to the scammers called Social Media Peaple.
    Can Camilla answer a question. If you know that SMPs office in America isn't real, because you checked and said it here, why not accept that all the customers who say SMP is a scam are right? I was one and I got scammed. I tried to talk to SMP in the messages here, but they never answered anything.
    If you want to have a go at someone else do it somewear else. It looks like Camilla really is SMP.

    Tom F Reverts to type and cannot answer one simple question. Why Tom? Would your answer make you look bad?
    If you will answer the previous question with either a YES or a NO (the question about criminality, remember YOU get to decide if the evidence is valid, )then I will answer one of your YES or No questions. Sound fair? You like fair right Tom. But you must answer the question before you get to see the evidence. Obviously I won't share the evidence if you admit up front that it will not make you waiver in your support of Badbizz.
    I called the USA number and posted my findings even though it was against SMP. I just don't understand you Tom
    Do you HATE SMP MORE than you LOVE the truth? All truth? You want to help people avoid a scam? OR is the truth that you know what a degenerate sociopath Steve Moss Jones is, BUT you don't care because the psycho is on your side.(For Now)
    Tom F if you only knew how close you were dancing to the fire that is Steve Moss, you would run for the lake.
    MY PREDICTION-- Within one year Steve Moss will have 2-3 websites built against YOU Tom F. Because he is a snake that has turned on everyone who has ever loved him.

    Tom F Poor defense of Stephen Moss Jones name change using the Pope as an example. The new Pope ALWAYS takes a new name. Therefore, using true logic, it is neither unusual nor suspicious. The same could be said for LADY GAGA. We all KNOW why she changed her name, because thats what pop artists/singers/actors do. So why does Stav need a "stage" name. Why did a non-celebrity, grown man, with children, change his last name? Who is he trying to hide from? What is he trying to hide? Hiding a criminal record.
    Please answer me this TOM F- If it can be proven beyond any doubt (you decide) that Stephen Moss Jones is a convicted criminal, and I am talking SERIOUS offenses, committed as an adult, convicted and sentenced with time served, will you still recommend and contribute to his web sites?

    Tom F--I called the USA number and it is disconnected. It is the correct USA code for State NewYork, and the correct first 3 digits for NewYork City, BUT the number Is disconnected. This is unusual and suspicious, especially when considering SMP provide Advertising. How can the SMP direct customers to YOU (the purchaser of advertising) when they misdirect their own potential customers.

    Tom F, You say you want to prevent new customers from being scammed by SMP. Fair enough, honourable even. Thats what good people do when they are scammed...they try to help their fellow man from falling into the same trap.
    THAT is why I am so appalled that you would tout and introduce unsuspecting people to an even bigger scam ( ie Stephen Phillip Moss/Jones).
    YOU have the cheek to act like you dont believe all the info offered up on SKSBCM Moss Jones, yet the info was gleaned from Moss's OWN WEB PAGES. These are not simply my opinion, they are Mr Badbiz's OWN WORDS and VIDEOs. His brother is David Moss. Steve calls him his brother in his rant against Birmingham Midshires after their mother died. He posted his letters to BM on his Badbiz site. His children have the Moss last name (ie SURNAME). Why would you pretend not to know that the guy changed his name to Jones. NOW, why do you suppose he would do this? Change his last name somewhere around [protected]?
    Tom F, you exemplify the Law of Unintended Consequences--In your zeal to help save people from SMP you expose them to an even bigger risk- Stev Moss Jones. Is this ethical? I dont think so. Thus, poor victim Tom F could care less about other people getting scammed ( not a question of IF but a question of WHEN) after hooking up with Stav Moss Jones.

    Hi Tom F, Please look up the word surname in the dictionary. Why would Stephen Phillip Moss move to the USA and return some 14 years later as Stephen Phillip Jones. Please Tom, if you answer only one question this week, answer that. How many 30-40 year old MEN change their last names and WHY. And Tom F, do you only hate people that scam you. Are you ok with scammers as long as they dont scam you. WHY. Why would you align yourself with someone like Moss Jones. Havent you read his other crybaby sites. Remember when he post a bank statement showing he has some 700, 000 or 800, 000 in his saving cheque account yet he claims that edwin coe destroyed him financially over a mere parking ticket. How could anyone feel sorry for you Tom when you only care about yourself. If you really cared about other people and saving them from a scam then you would refuse to add legitimacy to Moss Jones and Badbiz Badbizz..

    Good Morning Tom F and Brian Are you still in bed with the ultimate scammer Steve BadBizz Jones AKA Stephen Moss. Are you both REALLY that ignorant. What do you think of the name change. Weird, unusual, suspicious. Why would a grown man change his surname. Running from a criminal record.

    Smeireland, send a copy of the letter by Recorded Delivery so you'll have proof of the day they received it. Then if they take more payments, your card company will be able to cover you and claim back the payments.

    Can someone please advise what if anything I can do? If this isn't a genuine offer and I have cause to worry at this stage-not because I read these comments-things have happened since I agreed to do the advertising which caused me concern so I went online to find out a bit more about them.
    I said on phone that I did not want to continue contract past 30 days. I also posted a letter that same day to the address they gave me to cancel it going forward and the card holder also requested that no further payment were to be deducted from the card. Is that enough or can I do anything more? Can I contact card company to advise I do not wish to have any further payments taken?

    I have recently signed up with them and now very worried. We repeatedly said over the phone before we agreed to go ahead with the ad that we only agreed to a 30 day contract and we posted our letter terminating the contract after that 30 day period the day we signed up. I am worried now because thinking about it since, they never asked me about where the ad was to land to once clicked. So I looked them up and found this. Can I cancel a future payment with them with my card company? What can I do? I emailed a few days ago and got no response just that they were busy coming up to Xmas. No ad has be sent to me and havent seen an ad when I have been on facebook. No links from facebook to my site. Very worried. What do I do???

    Glad to see that Tom McVey sometimes agrees with others. Even if the other is himself. I did find one where he's debating with himself. Can't find it now. It was interesting and funny to read.
