Anonymous vs PayPal

I was recently informed by a client that money was sent to me via my Paypal account. However, I have not used my account for approximately 18 months, and had lost my password. The email and cellphone number associated with my account are also no longer in use. I had no way of logging into my account.

I browsed the PayPal website extensively to find a way to make contact with someone at Paypal in order to rectify this issue. NO email address is supplied to contact their help desk unless you're logged in. Which I couldn't do. A phone number is supplied which I was instructed to use to 'call as a guest'. The number doesn't work. There is NO WAY for me, an existing client, to log into the Paypal website, and NO WAY to contact anybody at PayPal in order to solve this issue. On the blogs, I could see that I'm not the only person with this type of problem.

The following is what PayPal claims on the landing page of their site: "We've got you covered. We can reimburse you if something’s not right.
Shop with peace of mind..." This, to me, is gross marketing lies of the service they offer - they clearly don't care about their clients. Period.

Anonymous vs Hammond Pole Attorneys and FNB

A year ago I had problems meeting my repayment obligations towards FNB, as I had lost my job.
Spoke with the branch manager and we made an arrangement.
Despite this, my account was still handed over to Hammond Pole Attorneys, who started calling me once a day.
I explained their mistake to them via telephone and got an email address to which I was asked to send a written explanation.
The email address was incorrect and the email bounced. It took almost a year before they stopped contacting me, long after the issue was solved with FNB.
They say on their homepage they're serious about service. Serious about crap service yes.

Anonymous vs Paypal KE

Paypal is an ultimate payment solution for numerous marketers and online freelancers working online across the globe. But it is not supported in all countries worldwide. However, whether you are using Paypal in a country where it is fully supported or not, the chances of having your account limited or closed for whatever reason is very high, hence, if it has not yet happened, it will happen in the future. This causes issues withdrawing these finds from Paypal.

When I contacted Paypal to inquire about the limiting of my account, I was informed that there are a number of reasons as to why the account could have been limited, but the common reason is suspicion of fraud or security matters. I had already verified the account with Paypal and all details were up to date.
However, I could not withdraw money, shop online, edit personal information, send money, cancel or close the account.
On launching complaints to Paypal, I kept on receiving the automated emails and informed that I can only access the money after 180 days.

Anonymous vs Co parenting South Africa

I approached Co-parenting for assistance with an ongoing custody battle, and was asked to pay Co-parenting R5000 up-front, which I did. The case was complicated, but that's why I looked for advice and representation. The manager, Christof Sharp, appeared reassuring and knowledgeable, and he may be so for others, but to me he was just a smooth-talking, greedy crook. He made a few phone calls on my behalf, but that's it - very little of what was promised to me during the initial interview actually transpired. I managed, with the help of other professionals, to gain legal custody of my child. Fortunately my drama is over, but this man and his company cannot be trusted.

Anonymous vs GnB English Academy

GnB English has a number of franchises across South Korea. Each is privately owned and run. With the exception of a few schools in Seoul, they are notorious for their poor treatment of the teachers, both native and foreign. The GnB in Gwang-yong Dong, Cholla-namdo, was no exception.

I worked as an English teacher to full classes of often over-worked and tired school children. This was not the issue - I'm an experienced ESL teacher with many years' teaching under my belt, yet I had to take teaching instruction from a CEO who could barely understand or speak English. He was also a racist with loose business ethics - each month I had to beg for my salary. I fell ill with pneumonia in the second last month of work and spent three days in bed, for which I was severely 'penalised' - the CEO paid only half my salary and refused to pay my plane ticket back home. This is illegal in S.Korea, but it doesn't bother most private hagwon owners.

sohelmugal vs Saudi Airlines

If you miss your outgoing flight, Saudi Airlines assumes that you will miss your return/ incoming flight too, and will cancel it without even informing you that your return flight has been cancelled. The worst part is that the airline will not even provide a refund for either of the legs or try to shy away from the refund - making the process extremely difficult

sohi vs Bank of Montreal

Most Canadian banks do not allow international online money transfers, even if they do, they do not exceed a few hundred dollars. Instead of using illegal money transfer arrangements, I have a signed a verbal/ message agreement with the bank that if I send them a signed fax with the required details, they will transfer the money to any overseas account on my behalf. Its a signed and enforceable contract. The problem is every time I send the fax, I have to wait for months to get the money transferred because the verbal/message agreement was found missing from the banks files. I have to send my copy to the bank every time. I do not understand how can a bank not keep signed documents safe and lose them conveniently. To me it seems that banks or bank employees do it just to keep the money in a buffer and take personal advantage from it.

Anonymous vs Star Alliance

Star Alliance boasts of some 28 airlines working in complete harmony, but if you fly with one airline and try to claim points with another airline frequent flyer program, it does not happen automatically, even if you provided all required details while booking. You have to keep emailing the related airlines again and again and again. If I fly with Egypt air and I provide Turkish Airlines loyalty number, then Egypt Air should ensure that my points are added to Turkish Airlines Number. But it does not happen this way....

Anonymous vs Phone Snatcher

My father an 85 year old man likes to do his errands on foot. He always carries a small man bag with him which has his spectacles, phone, money and IDs etc. A few days ago, a motor-cycle thief tried to snatch his bag when he was crossing the road and hurt him badly. My father fell on ground, had bruises on his head, back, fractured his collar bone and lay unconscious on the road for I don't know how long when someone called for an ambulance.

Anonymous vs United Nations

A friend called me from Iraq and asked me to look for a doctors job being advertised on the United Nations website. I tried and tried for a week, but between the electrical failures and bad internet speeds, i could not even pass the registration procedures. I tried looking for an email address where I could send my CV in text format and could not find.

I believe most HR people are lazy. They create internet based artificially intelligent programs where candidates have to spend hours inserting data about their lives and education and experiences, so that these programs can filter a few out of thousands of CVs based on the keywords devised by the HR people. Most HR people being not aware of the educational terminology, use the wrong keywords to attract or filter CVs.

United Nations is meant to help people with "High speed Internets" and "no internet" alike and such methods are discriminatory.

Anonymous vs Internic.ca

I am hosting a website with internic.ca for the last 10 years. Lats year my credit card expired and the renewal of my domain with internic.ca became a nightmare to the point that I had to register a new domain name with godaddy. Internic.ca uses a one dollar transaction to check if the user is for real. Banks dont like such stupid transactions and block credit cards. And so my credit card was blocked, because internic.ca kept attempting the one dollar verification. Instead of streamlining their processes, internic.ca kept asking me to contact my bank to accept the strange procedure. Not only my credit card got blocked, illegal transactions happened worth 3000 dollars just in those two days I was trying to pay to internic.ca. It seems internic.ca has people in their offices selling credit card numbers to culprits.

Anonymous vs Flynas

On flynas website, it costs 50-100 Saudi Riyals (USD 15 - 30) extra to buy a seat with more leg room.

But if these seats are empty; the air stewards and stewardesses would let anybody occupy them after the flight takes off.

While I have nothing against people who occupy empty seats I think the staff needs to be mindful of people like me feel cheated for having paid more than others for the same level of service.

Anonymous vs Microsoft

When it comes to viruses, there are many questions and conspiracy theories;
1. Who has the time and money and energy to create intricate viruses, development of which requires high end resources in various countries; and which the largest gurus of the tech industry can not overcome or troubleshoot.
2. Why windows hides the file extensions on the email attachments, so that people could not differentiate between an attached zip file or an exe file or a pdf file.
3. Why operating systems do not force the users to backup their data.
4. Does it mean that selling security is the new business and thus the demand has to be created by disturbing the security first in the cyber world, as its happening in the real world.

Anonymous vs Bahria Town

I bought a plot/ piece of land 10 years ago in Bahria Town Phase 3. The plot had a green belt on the north side. I paid a premium price due to the empty space in the north a mountain view in the front. The map published by Bahria, shows the green belt and the possession papers show that the north side is an empty space without any residential construction. In the last few years, Bahria has started selling the planned green spaces to create more residential and commercial properties. Based on the empty space, I got the detailed design made by Bahria, which has now gone to waste, and I will have to create a new design. I approached bahria and no one is willing to take the responsibility for such fraudulent acts. I suppose changing the urban plan/ master plan of the land, after the land has been sold is not only fraud but also an environmental crime. Since Bahria is such a big untouchable, no one can get any justice from these guys.

The Website is www.petronas.com.my. I dont think a company like Petronas will send an unsolicited email asking you to apply for a noname job and not use the petronas domain email.

Anonymous vs Dr Soliman Fakeeh Hospital

My company forces me to go to this hospital only. If I go to some other hospital my insurance will not cover the expenses. The hospital is a chaos. No place to park. The staff is rude at the reception. Hospital is being run as a money making machine. The website of the hospital is so slow that its hard to perform any online functions. It keeps crashing and showing errors. Since the website uses SMS based authentication, getting back on the site is a painstaking process, it crashes again and again.

My wife wanted to see a gynecologist. It took us a dozen attempts to reach the page where we could select a doctor. Turns out none of the doctors shown in the boastful list were available. Booking an appointment either results in "no appointments available" message, or a system crash. How can no appointments be available unless the doctors don't exist. Then the available appointments with some doctors are a month away. In a conservative society like Saudi Arabia, more than half of the gynecologists are male doctors.

We started looking for other options on doctoruna.com/en and booked an appointment via phone at lower scale Jeddah National Hospital at Macarona Street, and found it very organised and welcoming. Of course we paid from our own pocket, but the payments were less than half of what we would have paid at DSFH. (less)

Mila vs Pizzahut

Pizzahut has always been a favorite for Saturday suppers. We went to Highveld Pizza Hut restaurant and put in a large order for the family for a sit-down meal. The pizzas arrived, some cold, and with less cheese than usual. In addition, I found a hair in my pizza. My husband called the waiter, who called the manager Paul. Paul was uncooperative and rude from the word go. He insisted that the pizzas were the right temperature, and that my children were being difficult. He also insinuated that I had put the hair in the pizza which shocked me and hurt my feelings. This meal was a big disappointment for us as a family, we loved going to the restaurant, but we will not do so again.

The next day I called the franchise headquarters to lodge a complaint. We were given vouchers for free meals at a Pizza Hut of our choice.

Anonymous vs Saher

Saher is an automated system for control and management of traffic. It uses high speed digital cameras and networking technology and is linked to the National Information Center at the Ministry of Interior of Saudi Arabia. Saher system targets and captures information about reckless drivers who are dangerous to the safety of others and their own lives.

While Saher system has played a major role in controlling the recklessness of drivers on Saudi Roads, and saving numerous lives, I find it necessary to point out the difference between reformative control and entrapping. In many countries, Police and Governments have been accused of "Big Brother tactics" in over-monitoring of public roads, and of "revenue raising" in applying cameras in deceptive ways to increase government revenue rather than improve road safety. I have the following examples and suggestions;

1. Installing a speed detection camera right after an entry lane is not a good idea. Drivers need to accelerate in the entry lane to meet the speed of traffic on the highway so that they do not disturb the highway traffic and do not force other drivers to perform sudden and dangerous lane changes. In the same way if someone is not merging at the required speed, the highway traffic has to speed up or slow down to accommodate the new entrant. All these maneuvers at the merging point require increasing speeds to avoid accidents for a few seconds sometimes. Installing as camera right at the the merging point seems like entrapping.

2. There are areas where the speed limits are posted to be increasing from a slower to faster speed. Installing a camera in such areas where drivers are about to be allowed to increase their speeds seems like entrapping or unfair. It is understandable to install cameras where drivers are required to reduce speeds but not where they are required to increase speeds.

3. Installing speed cameras at intersections is inappropriate. Pictures from the San Diego red light camera systems were ruled inadmissible as court evidence in September 2001. The judge said that the "total lack of oversight" and "method of compensation" made evidence from the cameras "so untrustworthy and unreliable that it should not be admitted". Drivers need to speed up if they are caught in the middle of the intersection due to traffic blocks or when they are unable to dead stop due green turning to amber in the middle of intersection.

4. Cameras have tolerances in one direction only. Normally 5% above the posted speed is not penalized and caters to probable mistakes in accuracy. Cameras do not penalize drivers going slower by 10% or even 50% than the posted speed. This sometimes causes other drivers to speed up and pass the trouble maker.

There was a time when I thought checking the headers of emails that looked like spam would give me enough information and keep me safe from fraudsters. This has changed. I am receiving emails from actual domain names of companies like Amazon and Paypal. People are receiving calls from customer service caller IDs of well known companies. Either fraudsters are becoming too smart or the companies are becoming too fixated on increasing their profits that they have stopped concentrating on probable loopholes in their systems.

The screenshot attached shows that the email is coming from Amazon and the proposed link (from the text of fake order no 192-773-7646) in the body of the email will take you to some other website to complete its heinous fraud.

I tried to find if Dean Clark was a writer. I found a few University professors by this name. There have been a few more prominent Dean Clarks.

1. Dean Clark was the voice of Berlioz in the Cartoon Movie "AristoCats" from 1970.
2. Dean Clark is a former ice hockey defenceman and head coach of the Prince George Cougars. Clark is also the former head coach of the Kamloops Blazers of the Western Hockey League.
3. Dean Clark (born 31 March 1980) is a retired footballer. He was originally a professional who made a handful of appearances for Brentford and then went on to play for a variety of teams local to north and west London, including making over one hundred appearances for Northwood.
4. Dean Clark (born 6 January 1968) is a New Zealand rugby league coach and former footballer who represented his country between 1989 and 1992.

So even though the email is not intended to be sent to me by amazon.com, I believe Amazon.com owes me a duty of care to secure its IT assets so that people do not use their domain names to send fraudster emails.

Anonymous vs Microsoft

I have often had issues right after Microsoft installs an update to my PC. The March 2018 update locked me out by killing my mouse and keyboard so I could not log in. I spent around $140 at Fry's to have my PC files backed up and everything wiped. We all thought I had been attacked by a virus. After spending days trying to get into my PC myself, and days waiting for Fry's to restore my PC, I had to reinstall all of my programs. I spent almost 2 hours on hold with Viper support only to find out that they were inundated with calls from others having the same issues after to Windows update.

They re-sent my software and explained what happened with this:"We have researched this issue internally and have found this to NOT be a VIPER related issue. We contacted Microsoft directly and Microsoft has confirmed KB4074588 has known issues where some USB devices stop working. We recommend contacting Microsoft directly for any issues related to your USB Keyboard and Mouse no longer working. Their contact information can be found at ** or by calling 1-800-642-7676".

After trying to get answers and compensation over the phone, I had to drive to the Microsoft store and talk to a manager. He said they were aware of the issue that was happening "on older PC's". I showed him proof of my repair bills, and the receipts that showed my PC was only 9 months old. I am a senior living on Social Security with limited income and thought they might at least pay me out of pocket expenses. The manager came back with $100 in Microsoft gift certificates and said he would escalate my issue to corporate but could promise nothing. After getting home, I looked at what was available at the MS store. Nothing there was of interest to me. Follow-up calls just led to more frustration. I was given lip service and promises of return calls that never came. As big as this company is, you would think they could afford to at least cover the damages they caused.

Anonymous vs Samsung

Unfortunately, I fell in love with its center drawer and purchased a 4-door Samsung Refrigerator Freezer 3 and a half years ago, for $3200.00, without doing proper research. The model is RF24FSEDBSR and was manufactured in Sept of 2014. I still love the center drawer, but it is not enough to make up for the rest of the appliance. This is a prime example of a company that thinks highly of itself but doesn't care that it sells absolute junk. The number of problems and repairs for the ice maker, add up to this being the worst purchase I have ever made and that is saying something. I have put up with months and months of temporary fixes, thawing with hairdryers, mopping up pooling water on the floor of the refrigerator section and just doing without ice.

Recently, I have had 3 service calls for the ice maker. The ice maker freezes solid and won't dispense ice. Then, I need to move all my refrigerated food to a cooler and my frozen food to the outside freezer; turn off the entire unit for 2 days, with both doors propped open; and put an air circulator/warmer inside, just so the repairman can pry the completely frozen icemaker out without cracking the wall of the refrigerator. On the last service call, he replaced the entire ice maker for about $550.00. My total out of pocket for repairs and service is about $850.00. I fully expect that amount to grow. Now, it sort of works, but makes very little ice, (which will not be enough with summer coming).

I cannot get cubed ice, just crushed ice; there is water dripping down the front of the refrigerator and it is a constant source of aggravation. Samsung wasn't sympathetic or helpful when I talked with them, and they suggested that I should have purchased their 5-year Samsung Service Agreement for $1750.00 when I had a chance. Really? They were supposed to call me back (within 24 hours) 10 months ago, and I'm still waiting. Complete waste of time, money, effort, energy and resources. "Do not ever buy a Samsung refrigerator because they are expensive junk", was the advice of my repair person, who has owned an appliance repair business for many years. I could have saved myself lots of frustration, and money, if I had done my research.

3. Why operating systems do not force the users to backup their data.
4. Does it mean that selling security is the new business and thus the demand has to be created by disturbing the security first in the cyber world, as its happening in the real world.

Since the start of cloud computing, more and more big guns have found a way of eliminating customer service contacts from their websites. You better have a problem that everyone else has. If your problem is not available on discussion forums, you are out of luck. The chat robot will ask you for your problem in detail and then his artificial intelligence with choose some links from the discussion form and throw back at you. As I said, you should hope that your problem already exists and solutions are posted by someone for the exact same scenario. Microsoft thinks that no new scenario can exist.

Every year for some reason I have to wash my computer. Format the hard drive and install windows again. Get it authenticated. Since I believe in the ethics and morals of effort and reward, I buy all my software, instead of downloading from torrents. And when I have a problem I have to waste days and days finding a solution, cause there is no place where I can just call and get help.

And that's why I have downloaded OPENOFFICE and deleted Microsoft office from my system. Openoffice is free, open source, and it works fine.

At least, if there is no customer service, I have no one to blame, I am already getting it for free.

First of all, this is not working remotely, this is gambling remotely on the internet. The email lets you go to a gambling site using binary options. Binary options "are based on a simple 'yes' or 'no' proposition.

Investopedia described the binary options trading process in the U.S. thusly:
Binary may be trading at $42.50 (bid) and $44.50 (offer) at 1 p.m. If you buy the binary option right then you will pay $44.50, if you decide to sell right then you'll sell at $42.50.
Let's assume you decide to buy at $44.50. If at 1:30 p.m. the price of gold is above $1,250, your option expires and it becomes worth $100. You make a profit of $100 - $44.50 = $55.50 (less fees). This is called being "in the money."
But if the price of gold is below $1,250 at 1:30 p.m., the option expires at $0. Therefore you lose the $44.50 invested. This called "out of the money."
The bid and offer fluctuate until the option expires. You can close your position at any time before expiry to lock in a profit or a reduce a loss (compared to letting it expire out of the money).[9]
Every option settles at $100 or $0, $100 if the bet is correct, 0 if it is not.

Anonymous1234 vs Cashcrate
Cashcrate offers surveys and tests. If you complete them, you receive a couple of cents. After having registered, I immediately started completing surveys. After 4-5, the site told me that it had no more surveys to offer. This is where the scam begins. They offer you 4-5 surveys per day. You complete them, thinking about that big money that should come anytime soon. But if you completed 4-5 surveys per day, it would take you months, perhaps even an entire year to reach 14-15 dollars, the minimum withdrawal sum. It's even possible to never reach that sum because there are days where they don't offer surveys at all. In my opinion, this is all done on purpose. In these surveys, you reveal a lot of personal information. 4-5 surveys of your personal information is a huge bonus for companies, which pay cashcrate to be as scummy as possible.

Anonymous1234 vs Globaltestmarket
Globalmarket, like cashcrate, offers surveys for you to complete. From what I've read on other surveys, you need to complete between 60-100 surveys in order to make your first withdrawal. Now, one thing has to be taken into consideration: the personal information you put into these surveys are all shared to companies you will never hear from. After a couple of days, you will receive spam mail from these companies. Secondly, globalmarket provides you with no more than one survey per day, sometimes zero surveys for days. By the time you'll reach 14-15 dollars (making a first withdrawal possible), you'll have given so much information of yourself, these companies could literally clone you.

Anonymous vs Liam Andrews
This is embarrassing, and so naive of us! But I have to tell this story. My friends and I were in Times Square and this guy was outside this theater place and had these cards for a comedy club and we desperately needed something fun to do! They were 20$ upfront. He kept telling us that famous people go to these kinds of comedy clubs, and other stuff like that to reel us in. We knew that we weren't going to see a celebrity, but it still seemed like fun since it was a comedy club. We stupidly bought the tickets. I think we were all a bit pressured into buying them, if I'm being completely honest. After we went in, we realized that you also HAVE to buy drinks for minimum 20$ too! I'm not even 21, and we all wasted a lot of money that night for literally nothing. The comedy show was crappy, and I just needed to pee in the most disgusting bathroom ever thanks to the 20$ in drinks that I spent.
Later on, I did some research, and there are a lot of people that were scammed in the same way that we were.

My coworker told me that she experienced the same problem as I did, so that's why I decided to share my story with the world. Although I am fairly certain that I am not the first, or the second fool that they did this too.
The first of June is my birthday, and during my birthday it's pretty normal for me to get a lot of messages, cards and a lot of emails. I usually open them all on my birthday, but I answer them the day after my birthday. It's not unusual for me to received e-cards, but this one was a bit different. It was from a random email, but the email said the name of one of my friends. It said that I needed to download/update a program so that the card could play itself. I didn't really think hard about it. If I see that something needs to be downloaded or updated, I just do it. When I clicked on the link, it actually downloaded a virus. My computer crashed right away, and the scariest part is that whoever did that to me had access to all my personal information. Even access to my funds.
I had to buy a new laptop because I hadn't invested in a good antivirus program, so they couldn't save my laptop. I lost a lot of money, sleep and I was insanely stressed just because of one stupid fraudulent e-card.

Anonymous vs Apple
I have been very upset that my iPhone 6 has slowed down a great deal. My battery was tested and it showed it to be healthy. Think Apple has done this so that it will force you to buy an iPhone 8 or an iPhone X. I do not buy their excuse the new software does not run on the older phones. My iPhone was running perfectly until they slowed it down through a software update and this was originally done without the customer's knowledge. I also learned for the first time today that when Apple does a screen share on your computer they record your computer. As a customer, I don't like the fact you are forced to have your computer recorded if you need to screen share with a tech agent. I don't think any customer wants their computer information recorded. There is no telling what Apple will do with that information. We saw the problems with what Facebook did with their members' information.

Anonymous vs Samsung
Unfortunately, I fell in love with its center drawer and purchased a 4-door Samsung Refrigerator Freezer 3 and a half years ago, for $3200.00, without doing proper research. The model is RF24FSEDBSR and was manufactured in Sept of 2014. I still love the center drawer, but it is not enough to make up for the rest of the appliance. This is a prime example of a company that thinks highly of itself but doesn't care that it sells absolute junk. The number of problems and repairs for the ice maker, add up to this being the worst purchase I have ever made and that is saying something. I have put up with months and months of temporary fixes, thawing with hairdryers, mopping up pooling water on the floor of the refrigerator section and just doing without ice.

Recently, I have had 3 service calls for the ice maker. The ice maker freezes solid and won't dispense ice. Then, I need to move all my refrigerated food to a cooler and my frozen food to the outside freezer; turn off the entire unit for 2 days, with both doors propped open; and put an air circulator/warmer inside, just so the repairman can pry the completely frozen icemaker out without cracking the wall of the refrigerator. On the last service call, he replaced the entire ice maker for about $550.00. My total out of pocket for repairs and service is about $850.00. I fully expect that amount to grow. Now, it sort of works, but makes very little ice, (which will not be enough with summer coming).

I cannot get cubed ice, just crushed ice; there is water dripping down the front of the refrigerator and it is a constant source of aggravation. Samsung wasn't sympathetic or helpful when I talked with them, and they suggested that I should have purchased their 5-year Samsung Service Agreement for $1750.00 when I had a chance. Really? They were supposed to call me back (within 24 hours) 10 months ago, and I'm still waiting. Complete waste of time, money, effort, energy and resources. "Do not ever buy a Samsung refrigerator because they are expensive junk", was the advice of my repair person, who has owned an appliance repair business for many years. I could have saved myself lots of frustration, and money, if I had done my research.

Anonymous vs IKEA
Horrible experience with no resolution still! My husband and I ordered a $500 set of dressers and nightstands for our new house. We placed the order on May 7th and received a confirmation email which stated we would be contacted prior to the delivery. After nearly two weeks came and went with no update from the company, we started to get concerned.

After moving in, we had realized that the items we ordered were going to be too large for our room. I hopped on the phone to inquire about the status of the delivery and to see if it was possible to just cancel. I was not very happy after being told that there was a 110-minute wait... Yes... An ONE HUNDRED AND TEN MINUTE LONG WAIT to speak with a customer service representative. I thought it was a joke but quickly realized, they weren't kidding.

After checking the online tracker on May 20th, we realized the items were out for delivery so we took a sigh of relief and purchased new dressers, with the intent of receiving and returning the IKEA furniture. Around 6 pm that evening, I received a call from an unknown cell phone number. It was the IKEA delivery driver calling to let me know that his truck broken down but he actually lived around the corner and would be willing to bring the merchandise by after getting his new work truck within the hour. He also said that another driver could pick it up and deliver it at a later date.

I mentioned that we were planning to return the items and asked about our options. The driver stated that he would have dispatch call me in about 5 minutes. Eager to get our money back, we asked him to still deliver the items as soon as possible. We never received a call from the dispatcher and the driver never showed up with our furniture. When I called the number back, the driver did not answer and two days later, will still not return my calls.

My husband and I are FURIOUS that we are out $500 as new homeowners and still don't even have the furniture we purchased!! We can't get any assistance from customer service over the phone because of absolutely ridiculous wait times and when we visit the local store, nobody seems to know what's going on and can't help us. We just want our money back or our merchandise so that we can take it to the store and return it ourselves!

Please, please, please DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY!! Just shop elsewhere and spare yourself the time and an unnecessary headache. If we don't get some sort of response from IKEA in the next few days as to what exactly is going on with our order, the matter will be escalated. It took IKEA 5 minutes to take that money out, we're not waiting months to see it refunded. We fully intend to hire an attorney, should the issue continue to persist.

Anonymous vs Dell
I purchased a computer from Dell in April of 2017. It had issues from the beginning with external monitors turning off during active use, and the display settings being randomly re-arranged or forgotten. Dell replaced the Thunderbolt Dock which was what the monitors are connected to. That did not solve the problem. I was asked to send the computer in to be fixed, which I delayed doing because that is a tremendous inconvenience to me, I work from and run a business from home with the computer they wanted me to return. I returned it, however, to be fixed because not only was the issue with the monitors still unresolved but after the latest Dell update I was forced to install, the computer would no longer allow me to log in.

I returned the computer, and got it back 10 days or so later. It was not fixed, I still couldn't even log in. I wrote back to support and told them they had not fixed the issue and was told to mail it to them again. I did so. Each time, they have been given specific instructions about what is wrong with it, which they should, of course, have in their files, but the consumer is asked to enter it all again anyway. The second time it was returned to me, nothing was ever done. The service description was blank, the computer still had the same issue. Then I went to the Better Business Bureau, and was contacted by a rep from Dell, and was asked to return the computer a third time for service. Against my better judgment, I sent it in, again. It was returned to me, AGAIN, STILL BROKEN.

The issue was not fixed at all, I knew within 30 seconds of turning it on that they had not fixed it. I told them I will not be returning it to them a 4th time (they have not offered to have it sent back again anyway), and that I want it replaced, as I have a full warranty on the system until the year anniversary of the date of sale, which is next month. They want to send me a used, refurbished computer, asking me to trust in their technicians to have fixed whatever was wrong with THIS one, which I will not accept. I didn't buy a used computer, I bought a new one that has never worked right. I have asked for a new replacement, or a refund, neither of which are being granted. So I spent over $2,000 on a computer with a full warranty that is unusable and Dell is incapable of fixing. I will never buy from them again.

Anonymous vs Walmart
I purchased a BeautySleep Sanford Plush Mattress from Walmart.com and my mattress arrived at my door in horrible condition. The man who delivered it, from the start, asked me to get up into the small delivery truck and take a look at my purchase. Upon inspection, the plastic protection at the front (top) of the mattress had been broken open in several places, and the material/top of the mattress was embedded with oily-black semi-trailer brake dust or some sort of black STAINS! The delivery driver said that I could reject the delivery but that it would probably be best if I just ACCEPT DELIVERY, and he had me take photos of not only his original delivery invoice, which proved that his company had received the mattress in its horrible condition, but he also told me to take photos of the mattress; as he took photos of his own of the mattress once he had brought it up to my house.

The mattress was under $300.00, so it was a cheap purchase, but this should not mean that I should have had to accept a filthy mattress. Thanks to the WALMART.COM's choice of shipping/deliverers (Pilot Freight Services), and thanks to the fact that WALMART chooses to not respond to my complaints/photo proofs that they are totally irresponsible.

Tarlok vs Dominos
Never buy pizzas from here. I went to Dominos pizza store in Bandra, Mumbai and showed 25% discount coupon applicable on a minimum bill value of Rs. 350 to the staff before placing the order. I placed an order as such :1 Farmhouse pizza regular size - Rs.130/-,2 stuffed garlic bread - Rs. 178 and 1 coke - Rs.29.17 and adding Service tax to it the bill totalled above 350/-.

Till the time i got the bill i was of the perception that i would get 25% off on the whole bill value but then when i got the bill after making payment i was shocked to my utter belief that deduction of 25% had been made only on the pizza value and not on the other side orders i had placed. When i went to the counter and queried this, one of the staff ignorantly said that even the discount on pizza value was wrongly given to me as my pizza value was not over 350/- to which i showed him the discount voucher and explained that discount was mentioned to be given on the bill value and nowhere was it written that the discount was only on pizza value to which he pointed in the voucher showing the discount was not applicable on simply veg. /non - veg pizzas, combos and beverages which i agreed but queried that unlike coke, garlic bread did not come under the term beverages and was a side order and so discount should have been given to me on that inclusively along with pizza value at least, but he refused to budge and replied that without coke my bill value was falling below Rs. 350/- to which I said that it was a senseless argument and the main criteria of the bill value being more than Rs.350/- was fulfilled. Not adhering to my request to change the bill i ultimately asked him to call the head of the store.

The head came and i explained him what had happened but he was more poorer in responding to my queries and told me that as the bill was already made he couldn't do anything and that further terms and conditions applied. When asked what were the terms and conditions he pointed me at the voucher showing T&C* apply sign at the end which made me angry. What are its terms and conditions and that i was not a fool and shall complain of cheating myself in the consumer court forum to which he shamelessly told me to go ahead with it. Being fussed at his behaviour I took the order placed and left the place. I never expected such an irresponsible behaviour from a reputed company's employees towards its customers.

aarti vs Paytm
Few Days ago, I added 5000 in my Paytm account to buy some electronic appliances at around 10:45 am in the morning. Then, I logged off. I logged back at around 5 pm again to my Paytm account and was not able to login. Tried to reset password and logged on to see that my order was cancelled. I realised my account was hacked by someone and from the refund received the hacker had made 5 transaction of total worth Rs 4616. The hacker had also written some bad words in my profile. When i checked my Paytm wallet summary, I could see 5 fraud transaction with complete details of order id and transaction. These transactions were made through my wallet. I immediately reported this to the customer care of Paytm within 5 hours of these transactions being made. They asked me to write to their cyber cell of Paytm. I wrote several emails and the basic request was to hold or block these fraud transactions since all were done with Paytm partners and were not realised. The idea was take the right action to save the MONEY from going away. While we wanted to give time to the cyber cell of Paytm to investigate we at least wanted them to at least get these transactions being blocked or kept on hold. This was not done and nobody tried to talk to us on phone or interact on emails. We did several emails and phones but the customer care said we do not have cyber cell contact and you can just mail them and we cannot help you. This all was done by Paytm and finally result in losing my money.

Based on the fraud transactions being made, I kept on calling Paytm customer care service but there was no response. Their customer care service is pathetic. They make fool of their customers.

He advised me to provide SIM No. detail and also answer via sms by pressing 1 to an Airtel message. I went ahead with his advice and subsequently my Airtel connection services stopped till filing of this report.

After few days he again called me in morning and enquired about Airtel connection services. I complained him that services are not started yet. He assured me that in another 3-4 hours your services will start functioning. When services not activated on my mobile then I contacted Airtel customer care number and customer care executive advised me to visit nearest Airtel outlet for resuming connection services. I took a new number and they assured me that services will be activated by evening and I was waiting for activation of my Airtel mobile connection. After few hours it was activated successfully.

Airtel customer care executives advised me to block all debit / credit cards immediately as in 3-4 days time, 05-06 cases have come to their office with same modus operandi. I immediately checked through phone banking my PNB Debit Card and found that amount of Rs.19, 000/- has been debited from my account. I also came to know through phone banking that a sum of Rs.75, 000/- debited to my credit card. These transactions made without my knowledge and consent. I tried calling on that number but number was switched off.

Anonymous vs Ferns and Petal
I am permanent residence of Bangalore. I have ordered a combo package including cake and flowers from Fern and petals for my friend, an online florist and gift store that guarantees same day delivery and the “delivery of fresh products – always.” But they failed to deliver the product on the specified day, and when they finally did deliver it the next day, the cake was “smashed up, made of cheap wine” and of a quality that was entirely unacceptable to my friend.

When I attempted to complain about the non-delivery of the product on the scheduled day, then I found that the customer care numbers displayed on the website were not attended. I managed to find contact details from other location. One of their representatives picked up the call and they told me that they have received my order after that they disconnected the call.

Few days later, Charu My friend complained about the delayed delivery of a substandard product over a chat conversation with the company representative, Neha, who, according to her was rude and paid no heed to her complaints.

Charu then approached owner of the company, which runs a consumer helpline. She told them if we did not get the refund So, you need to pay Rs50,000 as compensation for our losses, harassment and inconvenience, Owner gave us satisfaction that severe action would be initiated against them.


When Mr Singla- Owner of the company finally said that the matter was headed to consumer court and they would have to appear in person to justify their position. With a sudden and radical change of tone, it sent a politely apologetic email to Charu, with the promise of a full refund on the same day.

Anonymous vs Ola
I have a complaint with Ola Cabs. I had booked a ride with Ola on 6th May at 6:45 am in Bangalore which was confirmed and the CRN was 113789550. However, in the morning on calling the driver Mr. Shri Gopal at 6:45 am, he refused to come without informing in advance and I already added money in my wallet. So, I called another driver Mr. Ravi was scheduled to pick me up at 7:15, after a delay of 30 mins from the scheduled time but he too refused to come and said he was far off. The customer care could not be contacted despite trying repeatedly for 30 mins. I was scheduled to give a national level fellowship exam in Bangalore in Electronic city scheduled at 8 am, but this was the biggest trial rather than the exam. After confirming a ride in advance, I was left stranded! The services of Ola have been pathetic. Without informing in advance the driver refused to come, Ola made no suitable alternative available. This is definitely not acceptable. Had I not been able to book an Uber ride immediately I would have failed to reach my examination venue in time. I travelled all the way from Kolkata to Bangalore for this exam and specifically recharged Ola money just to ensure pre booked rides but if this sorry state of affairs at Ola I would definitely warn people before they book Ola rides for any important affair. I was forced to avail of Ola services later also as I had recharged previously with Rs1000 without knowing the poor quality of services. I faced a great difficulty, but both ride now and ride later options could not be availed several times because of full slots. I am really disappointed with the service. I didn’t get my money that I have recharged with Ola.

Rupindersingh vs Kisna Jewellery
I have recently travelled to India for an India Tour through Pakriti calling. The travel was well organized but I had few issues regarding Shopping. We were Traveling with a Group. The Tour guide took us to a Jewellery shop in Jaipur named Kisna jeweler. Most of the persons in our Group did not wanted to shop for the jewellery but the guide forced us a stopover at the Shop. When we asked him the cause, than he said that the company Pakriti had asked him to stop there for Shopping. When we entered the shop, the salesman showed us the jewellery collection and I liked one of the Ring with a Sapphire. The rate quoted for the ring was 950 Pound. But after negotiating, I bought it for 460 Pound. I was very happy that I got the ring on a huge discount of nearly 50%. But it seems I was wrong. When I came back to London, My friends advised me to Re-value the ring. I went to the Gems Laboratory and showed the ring to them. I was frightened to hear that the value of the ring was not more than 95 Pound and the sapphire was not original but it was synthetically treated sapphire. I am very much irritated and feeling like I have been conned and cheated. This has happened to me and I am not sure, how many people have been cheated and suffered from this kind of activities by Kisna Jewelers.
May I request to everyone who is on this Travel forum to advise me on what should I do. I would request everybody who is travelling with Pakriti not to shop anything from this shop because they do cheat the people and sell artificial products or the products with a very low quality. They are heavily money minded.

I don’t understand that why Pakriti prefers to make a stopover to this kind of cheat shop. One of my friends told me that they do get money from the shop when someone buys any stuff from this kind of shop. It is a kind of Racket in which Pakriti and Kisna jewelers are involved and both of them cheat the innocent travelers like us.

Rupindersingh vs Godaddy
Last Year we have taken services for 5 years by paying Rs. 5940/-. Since last so many months we are facing the problem on our website that is getting hacked by some or the other way.

We have tried to call Go daddy center, for resolving this issue however they are unable to do so by providing different reasons in one of the conversation we had been asked to purchase SSL certificate for resolving this issue on permanent bases. On good faith we had accepted this resolution & had purchased this necessary certificate by paying Rs. 3500

However this solution didn't work & we had been forced to call center that hacking problem is still exist. At that time we were happy that we had been refunded the paid amount by cancelling the necessary certificate, however we were fed up of not getting the permanent solution of hacking.

On 8th April, 2017 we had been approached by Mr. Singla with one of the resolution stating that we are eagerly to help you for permanent solution, as per him he had suggested us to pay the charges of 1 year that Rs. 1300 approx, for discontinue of our services & we will refund your complete amount of rs. 5940/- in your bank account, which was paid for starting of hosting services. On good faith they we have accepted the resolution.

He has confirmed that he cannot cancel the partial invoice otherwise refund amount will be credited into my wallet. Hence we have rejected the option of partial invoice an as agreed to pay necessary amount of Rs. 1300 approx for necessary usage done since April 17. Another point which he had confirmed the over the call that you need to withdraw the database before cancelling the hosting services. Again on your good faith we have accepted the said option why withdrawing our all database date 9th April, 2017.

As instructed by Mr. Singla on 8th April we have fulfilled all necessary procedure / accepted necessary instruction that is we need to call back to pay Rs. 1300 post withdrawing our database.

To my surprise it was a hell experience when i had call with Mr. Singla today morning to pay Rs. 1300 approx for cancelling services. Now today he is confirming that he cannot fulfill his promised / commitment.

We live in a society where a lot of local unregistered workers do garden work. We asked one such guy to come and remove the honey comb and give us the honey. He charged us with 350 Rs. per Kg of honey extracted and billed us for 34 kgs. It sure looked a lot. I wasn't home, my mother collected the honey in 4 different utensils. The weight did not feel suspicious to her. They even used a spring based weighing scale to measure the quantity.
I have a regular weighing scale in my room, so when I returned home, I used it to measure it and to my surprise, it was only 14 Kgs! They had tampered with the scale and we were cheated with an extra bill of 20 Kgs!

I was riding my Vespa (2 wheeler) and I noticed a flat rear tire. I pushed the bike for 500 meters to reach the nearest tire shop. In Pune, India, puncture removal is a pervasive con. I will generalize and say that over 90 percent of them cheat you in terms of either service costs or punctures. The repairman removed the tire and I was standing diligently making sure I see no fishy business. Firstly, he fills up my tire with air and claims that the valve is damaged. I ask for proof. He removes it and shows it to me. I ask him to replace it. He quotes a price of Rs. 650, which is ridiculous. It is ideally sold at Rs. 150. I get into an argument and demand a lowered cost. Of course, these local goons do not produce bill, so no warranty. Then, I follow up with them to check the puncture. There were 7 of them and in all honesty, I could verify them. However, I saw 8 different spots where there was a repair done. The last one was done when I looked away. I argued and ended up paying just about Rs. 200 extra. But I wasted 50 minutes on this.

Anonymous vs Manoj Joshi
We hired Manoj Joshi through a recommendation. Sadly, it was a disaster for us. He used duplicate bathroom fittings, poor quality ACs, very poor wiring inside the walls, billed for extra soil to repair the foundation (which he did not), and a dozen more things. A new electrician who cleaned up Manoj's job told us that the wiring standards were illegal for a bungalow and we could've taken him to court. Leaving aside the lack of finesse in his work. We are wealthy family, so we did not compromise on the quality of raw materials (tiles, cables, wood, bulbs, etc). We were billed for the high grade material, but every person who came to repair shorted wires, leaks, cracks in the walls, etc. showed us how bad the quality is. Monetary loss is estimated to be upwards of 10 Lakh rupees.

Anonymous vs Yantra Seva
Yantra Seva is a computer repair company that sends people to pick up the broken computers. One such guy picked up my laptop and returned a repaired one. The job was well done. However, when he was inside the house to do the billing, I asked him to sit on the sofa. My mother's mobile phone was kept on the sofa set. This guy finished his billing and we were done paying. After he left. I looked for the phone and I couldn't find it. I called the pickup man to ask if he accidentally took the phone or not. His phone was switched off. Never to be turned on again. That number was discontinued and we could never find that person nor could we trace our stolen phone. It was taken from under our nose and we didn't realize it. We never found it again. There was no other place the phone could go.

Shredder77 vs Laptech Solutions
I had a problem with my charging port. The model of my laptop being discontinued, it was hard to get the original repair parts. This was told to me by Laptech Solutions. It sounded normal. So, I decided to cancel my repair order and pay for the diagnostics only. They Okayed it.

They told me that the laptop is in their warehouse and it will take 2 days for it to reach the store. I agreed to return to the shop and collect it in 2 days. I visited the store 3 times and called every day after 2 days. My laptop had not arrived. When I spoke with the manager, she seemed shocked by the staff's' irresponsibility. I do not think the manager even bothered to check what's happening. I finally threatened to call the police.

Sidrajavaid vs REDIFF
A month ago I ordered an embroidered lehenga choli from an Indian online shopping centre named as Rediff. As I was from Pakistan so they informed through email. All correspondence was done by email because they had no option of landline or cell phone numbers. On my sister’s wedding I have had to wear that. Before two weeks of wedding, my order had to arrive. It arrived after three days; they were making lots of excuses for this delay. Well I didn’t bother about delay. When parcel arrived I paid and became so much happy for it arrived earlier then wedding day at last. As I wore it on the day it was totally unbelievable. A very poor quality fabric was used and its size was also not like it was described. The cost was 599/- Indian rupees and also they charged 200 RS as extra for home delivery after deducting actual home delivery fees too. This entire incident was exclusively unbelievable and full of shock for my all family. All of us tried a lot to contact them through emails, we sent unlimited emails to them but they didn’t respond. Whenever I remember this incident I come in great wrath. I found this site today; I wish I could have had find this site at that time so that I’d be able to share the images of those emails and the dress, both of which are even not available in trash. I finished every memory in rage.

Olx.com has become one of the most well known, trusted and used e-tailing platform in India. By just creating an account, providing banking details and contacting possible buyers/sellers, an individual is able to work from their home and make huge sales. However, this has also made it easier for thieves to impersonate interested buyers and steal from the unsuspecting sellers. Motor vehicles, bikes, and other types of auto mobiles are the easier targets allowing thieves to laugh all the way to the bank after getting away easily.

After posting an advert, a buyer contact you and asks to meet you so that they can test the bike. You agree and allow them to ride for ten minutes, the next think, their phone goes off, no sight of your bike and no way to trace them.

ms1sm vs Samba Bank

One fine morning, SAMBA bank on its own decided to upgrade my status to Gold. They did it without asking me or consulting with me. And because they chose to upgrade me, they also chose to cancel my credit card and my ATM card, leaving me without money for the whole weekend. I had to take time off from work, go to the branch next week and withdraw cash for daily expenses. It took the bank almost three weeks to issue me a new ATM card for Gold membership. Furthermore, almost 3 months have passed and the bank has not been able to re-issue a credit card, which is always in the mail when I ask.

ms1sm vs Saudi Airlines
I missed my flight because the flight information/ guidance screens at the airport gave wrong information. They showed gate 10 for Beirut and a blank for Dubai. Thinking Dubai is still not open, I kept waiting and missed my flight to Dubai. Saudi airlines did not accept that the wrong video screens could be considered as a valid reason for a refund.

Magnet vs Samba Bank
My credit card is frozen and I have a credit balance on it. I am trying to transfer the credit balance to my account, which is not allowed, but if I transfer money to my card it happily receives it. A system that helps the bank to take money from customers but denies the customers their own money back.

sohelmugal vs Saudi Airlines
If you miss your outgoing flight, Saudi Airlines assumes that you will miss your return/ incoming flight too, and will cancel it without even informing you that your return flight has been cancelled. The worst part is that the airline will not even provide a refund for either of the legs or try to shy away from the refund - making the process extremely difficult

Anonymous vs Saudi Airlines
On a 5 hr flight between Jeddah and Islamabad, it so happened that there were only two passengers travelling in the business class and the check-in clerk had placed both of us next to each other in the front row, where the TV screen is fixed to the wall far away from you. the screen is not adjustable, and you can not see a damn thing if there is light being reflected from somewhere.

30 minutes after the take off, I asked the purser, who was walking around with a rosary in his hand, if I could sit on one of the all empty seats in the back. He very strictly said, no, "you can only sit on the other seat in the front row". I did not understand his logic till about 30 minutes later, when all the serving staff including himself came to sleep on those seats. Imagine the plight of all the passengers on a five hour flight when about 12 servers/ waitresses are sleeping for the whole length of the flight in the business class.

After disgruntled by the situation, I started finding things which I never notice. The unhealthy mold growing in the corners of the floors/ aisles/ bathrooms/ seats, the dinner table tilting to the right so that you wont be able to eat unless you hold the tray with one hand, the sound of the entertainment system with no noise reduction, the ottoman part of the recliner never staying where it should be etc etc.

We all know the annoying experience one goes through with the construction not ending since the last 8 years. We all know how a simple circular arena with exiting pathways looking like sunrays would have fixed the problem rather than the time taken in eleborating the arches with chandeliers. Today I arrived in the haram premises 3 hours before jumma prayers hoping to complete an umra before the prayers and I was not allowed because of spaces closed and blocked by construction everywhere. When will this stop. And then I saw this unsafe practice. Technician with no helmet standing on the barrier on top of a scissor lift.

Anonymous vs Samba Bank
Adding a beneficiary to a samba bank account can make you hit your head against a wall, drown yourself and hang yourself by your hair at the same time. The bank account portal/ website asks you to enter a host of information, verify requests via SMS messages, send texts to certain numbers, wait and receive for acknowledgements and then says, "Please call SAMBAPHONE". SAMABAPHONE got to be the most annoying banking auto-attendant one has even called. Today I called, went through the security checks, and found that there is no option to verify a beneficiary. I chose to talk to the customer service. The customer service asked me to call again, go through the security checks, SMS verification and then press 1-1-4-9. I did it and the phone went blank and after a few seconds gave me the busy tone. I called again and went through the same procedure and picked options 1-1-4-9 and managed to receive a live voice. The person said something in Arabic, even though I had chosen to communicate in English, put me on hold and vanished. After a few minutes I heard the busy tone again. This happened almost 6 times. I could not authenticate the beneficiary.

Anonymous vs ZAIN
Many service providers in Saudi Arabia ensure that they do not have adequate English speaking staff so that non-Arabic speaking customers get frustrated easily and end up paying whatever the companies force them to pay. Sometimes you end up paying just to avoid a nuisance, even if you don't have to. No one listens and no one wants to listen. They keep repeating the same replies again and again, whatever you say, cause those are the only sentences they know.

I bought a SIM for a month and asked the teller to cancel it after the end of the month. The teller said, if you don't pay, it will not work, and will be automatically cancelled. Obviously it did not get cancelled and ZAIN kept charging monthly fees, even if the SIM was not used for months and months. Then I received a call that I owe them some money, I tried to argue with the caller and she asked me to wait and called someone else who knew a few more words of English, but not enough to understand what I meant. I ended up paying the amount and I am still not sure if the phone has been cancelled or I will still get a bill next month. The teller who received the money kept saying yes and yes and yes, and I am sure the did not understand a damn thing and did whatever he thought was made sense to him.

Anonymous vs Saudi Council of Engineers
I am a licensed engineer in Saudi Arabia, Australia, South Africa, Pakistan and Canada. To maintain my work/ resident permit in Saudi Arabia, I am bound by the immigration law to renew my membership with Saudi Engineering Council every year.

The Saudi Engineering Council does not provide a receipt for the fees received. Every time you call, a receptionist repeats the same sentence to you again and again. "YOU can not PRINT A RECEIPT of your payment FROM YOUR PROFILE, PLEASE VISIT THE SEC OFFICE." This is happening in an organization which is trying to represent 201,000 non local/ expat engineers. This is happening in a country which has a population of around 35 million with only 18 thousand Saudi licensed engineers. The specialties that lack Saudi engineers are planning, construction, marine, technology, health and safety, electronics and information technology, technical industries, nuclear, technical civil engineering, mechatronics and medical engineering. 4 of these specialties have no Saudi Engineers at all.

In such a scenario, the SEC with the help of the Government has devised a money making scheme. No expat engineer will get a resident/ work permit renewed, and/ or be able to work as an engineer, unless he/ she obtains a valid or renewed membership with SEC. Saudi Engineers can work as engineers without having a membership.

If SEC had a service level that was acceptable then the above requirement of membership wont be such a big issue. The problem is that the SEC has a website that crashes all the time, no one picks up the phone, and even if they do they can not respond or satisfy and will put you on hold and transfer you to an answering service. People complain of the delays, lack of responses. One has to question the existence of a so-called regulatory body that has not been able to deliver but only take money from engineers providing no returns/ benefits, or services, and even basics are not provided like membership cards, receipts for memberships and answering phone calls by a reasonable person experienced in membership processes of engineers.

On the websites of Professional Engineers Ontario, or the Engineers Australia, or Pakistan Engineering Council, I can print my membership card or the receipt of payments made whenever I want. Why not on Saudi Engineering Council.

Anonymous vs Zain
The government wants to ensure that every SIM issued by a telco is associated with a distinct user whose identity no and fingerprints are known to the government and the telco.

The fingerprinting services of Zain offices/ outlets have not been working for almost a month. This means if your SIM is blocked you can not have your SIM activated. And if you are a post paid monthly customer, Zain will keep charging you a minimum monthly fee, even if you can not use the SIM, because the fingerprinting services are not working.

There is no way out but to keep paying the monthly invoices even if you can not use the SIM. If you dont pay, someone will come and blame you for stealing and cut your hand.

Anonymous vs Flynas
On flynas website, it costs 50-100 Saudi Riyals (USD 15 - 30) extra to buy a seat with more leg room.

But if these seats are empty; the air stewards and stewardesses would let anybody occupy them after the flight takes off.

While I have nothing against people who occupy empty seats I think the staff needs to be mindful of people like me feel cheated for having paid more than others for the same level of service.


Anonymous vs Dr Soliman Fakeeh Hospital
My company forces me to go to this hospital only. If I go to some other hospital my insurance will not cover the expenses. The hospital is a chaos. No place to park. The staff is rude at the reception. Hospital is being run as a money making machine. The website of the hospital is so slow that its hard to perform any online functions. It keeps crashing and showing errors. Since the website uses SMS based authentication, getting back on the site is a painstaking process, it crashes again and again.

My wife wanted to see a gynecologist. It took us a dozen attempts to reach the page where we could select a doctor. Turns out none of the doctors shown in the boastful list were available. Booking an appointment either results in "no appointments available" message, or a system crash. How can no appointments be available unless the doctors don't exist. Then the available appointments with some doctors are a month away. In a conservative society like Saudi Arabia, more than half of the gynecologists are male doctors.

We started looking for other options on doctoruna.com/en and booked an appointment via phone at lower scale Jeddah National Hospital at Macarona Street, and found it very organised and welcoming. Of course we paid from our own pocket, but the payments were less than half of what we would have paid at DSFH. (less)

Anonymous vs Saher
Saher is an automated system for control and management of traffic. It uses high speed digital cameras and networking technology and is linked to the National Information Center at the Ministry of Interior of Saudi Arabia. Saher system targets and captures information about reckless drivers who are dangerous to the safety of others and their own lives.

While Saher system has played a major role in controlling the recklessness of drivers on Saudi Roads, and saving numerous lives, I find it necessary to point out the difference between reformative control and entrapping. In many countries, Police and Governments have been accused of "Big Brother tactics" in over-monitoring of public roads, and of "revenue raising" in applying cameras in deceptive ways to increase government revenue rather than improve road safety. I have the following examples and suggestions;

1. Installing a speed detection camera right after an entry lane is not a good idea. Drivers need to accelerate in the entry lane to meet the speed of traffic on the highway so that they do not disturb the highway traffic and do not force other drivers to perform sudden and dangerous lane changes. In the same way if someone is not merging at the required speed, the highway traffic has to speed up or slow down to accommodate the new entrant. All these maneuvers at the merging point require increasing speeds to avoid accidents for a few seconds sometimes. Installing as camera right at the the merging point seems like entrapping.

2. There are areas where the speed limits are posted to be increasing from a slower to faster speed. Installing a camera in such areas where drivers are about to be allowed to increase their speeds seems like entrapping or unfair. It is understandable to install cameras where drivers are required to reduce speeds but not where they are required to increase speeds.

3. Installing speed cameras at intersections is inappropriate. Pictures from the San Diego red light camera systems were ruled inadmissible as court evidence in September 2001. The judge said that the "total lack of oversight" and "method of compensation" made evidence from the cameras "so untrustworthy and unreliable that it should not be admitted". Drivers need to speed up if they are caught in the middle of the intersection due to traffic blocks or when they are unable to dead stop due green turning to amber in the middle of intersection.

4. Cameras have tolerances in one direction only. Normally 5% above the posted speed is not penalized and caters to probable mistakes in accuracy. Cameras do not penalize drivers going slower by 10% or even 50% than the posted speed. This sometimes causes other drivers to speed up and pass the trouble maker.

Anonymous vs Ministry of Interior
Just a week ago, I noticed two speed detection cameras installed by the MOI on the Thuwal-Rabigh road. The problem is that there are no speed limit signs anywhere near these cameras, for miles and miles and no one knows what is the acceptable speed limit. Seems the purpose is to collect money only by hooking the mis-informed drivers. In Saudi Arabia a road with 4 lanes or a dual carriage should be with atleast 100kmph limit but these radars have been known for taking pictures of drivers at less than 100kmph also.

Anonymous vs Saudia or Saudi Arabian Airlines
I was sitting behind 8-10 members of Saudi Arabian Airlines flight crew which were probably returning from their duty or training or whatever. They have the seats with the best leg room. They are extremely loud. And right during the safety presentation before take-off, when the TV screens are asking to turn off all electronic devices, these guys are totally ignoring the safety requirements and keeping up with their ignorant behavior.

Anonymous vs Samba Bank
If my iqama [residency visa] expires and is not renewed for some reason, or if i do not visit the bank to show my face, every year, even if my visa is renewed, my bank account will be frozen. Once my bank account is frozen, no money can be taken from it, even if your kids are dying of hunger or your pregnant wife needs medicine.. Your driver's license will also be frozen, credit cards as well, your phone number may also be disconnected. It is my hard earned money but because of the laws based on the principles of slavery, your money is not yours if the masters decide to do so.

Nowhere in this world will this happen. Actually most countries want you to deposit your money in their banks and try to give you a sense of security, so you keep the money invested with them.

Anonymous vs Arab Open University
An open university that is running in almost 8 different countries has no easy method of verifying transcripts of international students and makes the students waste time on getting attestations from multiple Ministries, Embassies and Notaries. On top of that the University Venue in Dammam shifted recently to an unknown place with no intimation on their website. The old venue merely mentions of the move on a badly handwritten piece of paper stuck to the main door. "We have moved to Airport Road". Its written in one single language whereas the university provides courses in multiple languages to students who speak different languages. Meanwhile airport road is almost 40 km long and finding the university on the airport road will definitely be a nightmare.

Whenever you want to send money to someone a business or a person, even inside the same city or within the same banking institution, you have to get the beneficiary approved by making a zillion calls and what not. Yesterday, I had to send money to a travel agent, I created the beneficiary online, and then going thru all the procedures, was asked to call sambaphone.

I called the number I was given and I was taken into the system when I entered my ATM card number. Instead of verifying the card, the auto attendant said, I have to call another number, which was the same number I had called. I have been trying for the last 2 days and No one in the bank has noticed that there system is going in circles...

My father an 85 year old man likes to do his errands on foot. He always carries a small man bag with him which has his spectacles, phone, money and IDs etc. A few days ago, a motor-cycle thief tried to snatch his bag when he was crossing the road and hurt him badly. My father fell on ground, had bruises on his head, back, fractured his collar bone and lay unconscious on the road for I don't know how long when someone called for an ambulance.

Some one at NADRA has self graciously launched the online application system for Identity cards and origin cards etc, which is full of bugs, hangs up again and again and is just another source of frustration in a country full of booby traps. Seems like a good idea in principle; but also works as a good idea for corruption. Sometimes the money is requested at the very start of the application process and the application process never completes due to a website full of bugs. So one loses the money and then the email support form either does not work or even if it sends your request, no one replies.

Anonymous vs Bahria Town
I bought a plot/ piece of land 10 years ago in Bahria Town Phase 3. The plot had a green belt on the north side. I paid a premium price due to the empty space in the north a mountain view in the front. The map published by Bahria, shows the green belt and the possession papers show that the north side is an empty space without any residential construction. In the last few years, Bahria has started selling the planned green spaces to create more residential and commercial properties. Based on the empty space, I got the detailed design made by Bahria, which has now gone to waste, and I will have to create a new design. I approached bahria and no one is willing to take the responsibility for such fraudulent acts. I suppose changing the urban plan/ master plan of the land, after the land has been sold is not only fraud but also an environmental crime. Since Bahria is such a big untouchable, no one can get any justice from these guys.

Once I got call from ufone helpline. After introducing, the agent greeted me very warm congratulations for winning brand new Corolla XLI new model from ufone company. He took all details from me like,  when did I own this sim and my CNIC number, my family members' details and other basics. I gave him all details very pleasingly. Then he further introduced himself. He was actually Senior Staff Assistant of that company. He gave me a lot of exciting news that tomorrow he and his team members will come to my home with my car. I was unbelieveable happy at this. Then he asked me to transfer payment of 30000/- RS into his bank account at first in advance by keeping call on hold. I went to bank and transferred the payment. Though it was not that easy for me but due to excitement of car,  I managed. Then he turned off the call saying that tomorrow his whole team will come to my home. That day passed and nobody came,  the other day had passed too. Then I went to ufone franchise told them all matter. They stunned me saying that it's not their company's scheme. The manager listened to me very friendly and sincerely. He asked the call agents to trace the call and after 3 months they caught that person.

Sidrajavaid vs United Bank Limited Lahore
I had to go to China for my uncle's liver operation. For that purpose I consulted Sky Chain travel agents for visa ane ticket processing. According to  ticket my uncle's and my flight day was on 10 Dec 2014. Other family members could not go due to heavy dues for operation. My uncle's kids were so young, so I was only near to them who could handle all money withdrawing or transferring procedures from banks. Unluckily due to some serious circumstances and my uncle's day by day weakness, Dr. PAN who have had to perform his operation, asked us to come on 15 Nov and it was so soon. I was greatly busy a week before going bank uncle asked me to withdraw 5 Lac from his bank accound in UBL, Lahore. I withdrew money and with all preparations done, we moved to China on 14 Nov. Two weeks later, was my uncle's operation. The Dr. Pan charged 3 Lac extra for some specific reasons regarding operation. My uncle gave that brief case to me,when I opened and counted money it was not total 5 lac there were many notes which were fake and it was total 3 Lac 28 thousand. There was loss of 1 Lac 72 thousand rupees. My uncle was not in condition to take any stress or tension and also could not tell this to any family member in this situation. I managed to call that bank about this issue but they refused to accept this mistake. Then I understood it was serious douge given to us. I arranged money with great trouble, taking borrow from a friend. But unfortunately my unlce did not recover from operation he died and with this extreme loss I forgot everything. After coming back Pakistan and six months after my uncle's death. Now whenever I remember this bank's farud I became a lot of furious and wish for them to be destroyed.

Sidrajavaid vs Mobilink Jazz
A month ago I was away from my home town. Me and my friends made a plan to visit northern areas. When we were in Swat I got call from my class's C.R to make urgent research proposal assigment. I had no money to buy an internet USB for that. A friend suggested to take internet package on Jazz sim. He searched mobilink jazz internet packages on a site. All of us were short of money at that time. So I took 1500 MBs weekly internet package on my sim card. It was more than enough to complete my assignment project. I had only 200/- rupees left in my pocket. The package's charges were mentioned RS. 71.70 on the site. I subscribed for that. But after subscribing I came to know that it was only 500 MBs for internet research and 200 MBs for whatsapp and facebook. It was so exhausting for me and I felt greatly cheated at that incident.

Anonymous vs Rohan
I am a successful and blessed housewife now I am sharing here the most unforgettable and real life incident of my own life here. When I was in Punjab university student of BBA HONS, I made friendship on Face book with an unknown guy named Rohan. I became impressed with him a lot and day by day our friendship grew stronger and it transformed to true love. My mom was only aware of this. One day he proposed me on face book and of course like all girls I said yes without informing anyone. When I told my mom, she talked to my dad about this but he did not agree for this. I tried a lot to convince him, instead of accepting he forced me to marry with his friend’s son. We were totally mad for each other, made a plan of escaping from home on 10-6-2012. As I reached to his address where Rohan asked me to come, I found no one there. I waited a lot but he didn’t come. In a lot of anxiety and depression, when I started moving away a car came from behind Rohan came out, he grabbed my hand and forced me to sit in car which was full of 4 other men. I was struggling to let out my hand and was shrieking loudly so that somebody could help but no one came. They tied my mouth and hands and moved. Sooner we heard a police car’s siren; the car came in front and stopped our car. All of those seated there, tried to run away but they were caught instantly. My cousin was there with police who had seen this, so instead of coming alone he came with police because Rohan and others also have had guns in hands. He rescued me from them and took me to hospital because I was faint and it took 6 months in hospital for psychological and other remedies for rehabilitation. After police investigation we came to know that he was actually Indian guy who was Hindu and they smuggled girls by doing such emotional harassments and emotional blackmailing through love or friendship and destroying their lives. Now after 5 years still, whenever I remember this incident, I repent a lot on myself and cries with pain.

To my surprise my family had to pay more than 5500 rupees (equal to 220 QR) to have the personal parcel /gift released.
The current one way ticket from Doha to ISB is 790 QR including all taxes.
It was probably wiser for me to take the 200 QR gift personally to Islamabad and get the bonus of enjoying few days with family.

Anonymous vs Dr Chris Owen
A guy named Dr Chris Owen (sounds respectable) is using a phone number from Pakistan to send plain text messages to phone numbers in Pakistan. He is not sending WhatsApp messages, even though he claims to be distributing gifts on behalf of WhatsApp. He is adding a UK number (+44) to create further confusion or credibility.

Anonymous vs ufone Pak Telecom Mobile Limited
I have a ufone mobile number. I used it rarely because I do not live in Pakistan and have it only for the short visits I make a couple of times a year to Pakistan. Only my close friends and family know my ufone number. I do not even use it for WhatsApp. Still I get almost 5-10 spam text messages on daily basis while I am roaming out of Pakistan. The only possible reason is that ufone or some one from ufone is selling consumer phone numbers to advertising companies and benefiting from it.

Anonymous vs Shaheen Air International
We all know Shaheen Air is a budget airline but it does not mean that the airline is allowed to ignore its duty of care towards its customers. The airline allows website purchases which means passengers can buy tickets from anywhere in the world. It also allows web clients to provide international phone numbers and email addresses for providing information. But if a flight is delayed it does not send text messages to phone numbers which are not Pakistani.

Turns out it was not just one flight delayed, the whole schedule was to be changed for the whole summer season. This means the airline knew of this change well in advance (probably even months before), but the airline did not bother to inform its customers neither on the website, nor through email/ phone. Let the people suffer, why should the big guns bother.

Anonymous vs Street fraudster
I was 12 years old and was a basketball fanatic. When Orlando Magic went into the NBA finals and one of the popular names that reverberated was Shaquille O' Neal, I was just in awe. In Filipino, he was just so "astig" or sturdy - a word commonly attributed to a person with a muscular built, macho image and is quite literally, grounded. As the team's center, he can block so well, can screen, can capture good rebounds and he can definitely assist and shoot, too. Everything that I wanted to be as a basketball player was in him.

The street where I lived was a very public street as it is in between two main roads and there is a Jeep line ( a public form of transport) passing through. It is, however, a street, connecting various alleys and inner streets only accessible by foot or by bicycle. My dad, being the smart man that he is, gave me a new mountain bike (priced around Php 2000 then, would have been priced to about Php 5,000 now) as a graduation gift. I've been using the bike for a week now and one mid-day, I happened to be stopped by a man who, out of nowhere, asked me if I'd like a Shaquille O' Neal signed basketball. I felt like I won the lottery then. What were the odds of meeting someone selling such a priceless item? He said he was selling it for Php 500 and I agreed. He, unfortunately, said that he doesn't have it with him, and have to get it first so I said I was willing to wait. He then asked to borrow my bike so he can come back faster and of course, you knew what happened. I agreed and close to say, I gave permission for him to take my bike but it doesn't help with me feeling like a fool and being cheated that way.

randy455 vs Baste
Growing up in Recto (Manila) means being exposed to a lot of underground jobs. I have a best friend, I knew him since I was 10. Things became different after high school I proceeded to a state university but he was forced to work at an early age. We still see each other and this is how I know that even if your job is a forger, I know that you are still a decent person.

A forger is someone who creates legal documents and forges the signature of the authorizing personnel. The forger normally has templates to use and has already made arrangements in terms of the printout, paper, and seals in order to ensure that the document will appear original. I knew that this is illegal but I turned a blind eye and never let this interfere with my friendship with Baste. Baste moves from one store/shop to another. He wasn't the one getting the jobs, he was only the one getting it done.

So when I graduated, I visited him on one of the shops he was working for and I shared my success. I brought my diploma with me and he looked at me knowingly. He said that it wasn't authentic. That was a low blow for me and was quite insulting but he said that he'll check just to make sure. He brought my diploma in and was out in less than a minute. He then said that he takes it back and confirmed that the diploma was authentic.

I found out through the grapevine a few weeks later that the less than one minute that he was away was all it took for him to use the information for forgery templates. It was necessary that templates are updated because of the new signatories and the seals and him being given an original, allowed him a fresh copy.

They say men are supposed to be strong and willful and should not be emotional but knowing that we were friends and he chose to trick me was a final straw. i was hurt emotionally and I lost faith in him and in our friendship.

Belle vs Abbie
Our final exam for our Print Journalism subject in College was to publish a magazine from scratch. There were about 18 students in our class and we needed to come up with both the content and the sponsors in order to get it published. To be fair, therefore, our Editor-in-Chief, Abbie, through a consensus, decided for all the students to contribute a certain amount to cover all the expenses. If it cannot be secured from a sponsor, cash has to be provided. I was the business manager of the magazine and it was my role to budget and ensure that the funds are intact for the publication. It was also my responsibility to contact and pay the publishing company and in this case, even the freelance layout artist we were referred to. I was the signatory to these contracts.

I have been in close communication with Abbie throughout the duration and instructions were clear but some students, however, got a sponsor for their contribution and named the checks payable to Abbie's name. Some sponsors wrote the check to the order of the school's name. I made the necessary arrangement but despite my efforts, these checks have to be deposited into Abbie's account. The magazine does not have its own legal account as it was not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

Time flew, however, and publication schedule was moved. Some contracts have lapsed and some business commitments/sponsorships were no longer applicable/honored. Our professor gave us our final grades - based on the progress and all of us graduated that school year. Having finished the school year, some students started to ask for a refund because we were not able to deliver the publication. I gave half of their money to be fair with the contract of obligations. I was still confident that the budget was intact despite that because the money in Abbie's account is going to be sufficient to cover the publication costs.

Abbie, unfortunately, in all the time that I asked her for the funds, assured me that the money was intact but never really got to withdraw them nor remit them to me. I realized later on, that those who asked for a refund were also her friends. I sincerely felt abused and cheated. She did not do her due dilgence as a editor in chief and as a person. She was indifferent to my situation because she did not return any of my follow-ups anymore. And I had to shell out money for this one.
But I had no choice.

My name was on the line with the publication and I couldn't cancel so I paid the costs out of my own pocket. The actual publication wasn't necessary because we have already graduated but knowing that you've done your part and your end of the bargain and that you did not do the same to others is the only consolation I had.

Anonymous vs Katherine Ann DOjoles
I'm keeping my name confidential for personal reasons but am submitting my story so that others can beware. I am also attaching a screenshot of someone else she did her modus on. I felt cheated, used and angry for what has happened. She hurt me emotionally because we started as friends and now, she owes me money.

I met Ann about a year ago at work and I immediately felt connected to her. She is a big girl with a really loud voice and she seemed to be friends with everyone. She seemed to be "in the crowd" but she also seemed to be a "keeper of secrets." I know she talks a lot, that's part of who she was and that's what makes her so bubbly and friendly but I have shared with her sensitive things about me, some even controversial and none of it ever surfaced. I knew I could trust her. She was my friend.

Now, during this time, I was doing side selling in the office to earn a little. What I do is I have a supplier overseas providing me bags, clothes, perfume, jewelry and other items and I offer it to my colleagues to see if they are interested and simply put, do the retail selling. Ann knows this and understands why I have to do it. As a single mom and the head of my nuclear family (parents and siblings), I need to maximize all possible sources of income and I simply need to invest. So when she said that she'd like to help me out, I didn't think twice. It started with one or two items that she'll just sell at the same rate I was - so she was doing it free of charge. After a week, however, her sales pattern was just astounding so I thought it would be fair for me to either divide the profit or better yet, be her supplier.

I earned about 200% of my usual profit in the first month. Sales dwindled by the second month for Ann and that's understandable, I still got profit for the goods that were sold. As a supplier, however, it was essential that I get paid for the items I passed to her (I have to pay my own supplier too!) but due to the nature of our relationship, I told her to pay me when the items are already sold. Ann told me that she'd like to be more aggressive and just sell any item that she could so despite a pending balance, she asked for additional goods. I saw this as a business opportunity because Ann was about to be moved to the morning shift and since there wasn't anyone selling goods in the morning shift, I being on the night shift, would be able to maximize the office market.

Sales improved the following month but Ann was still behind with all the stocks that were not yet paid. We talked about allowing a payout schedule (ie selling the items in advance and getting the payment on payday). She shared to me the buyers of each item with her and when we can expect the payment. All items were accounted for and I trusted Ann.

The fourth and fifth month wasn't any better but since everything was accounted for - and I was able to get to know the people on the list and confirmed that they owe Ann, I did not see an item of concern. Ann told me that the people are simply not adhering to their committed payment schedule causing the delay and I understood that. I also had a similar disposition in the night shift. I, however, had to ask Ann to cover the earlier supplies because it's creating a domino effect. She was quick to cover the remaining supplies from the second month but asked to hold off on the succeeding, at least until she is able to collect.

I wasn't oblivious to the other businesses that Ann was also doing. On top of the goods she's selling from me, I knew that she was also selling sandwiches and was also offering debt services (loan other people money and get 20% interest).
I was confident that she'd be able to cover the rest of the unpaid supplies as well as the uncollected payment as time passes.


I started to hear some word that Ann was in the hole on the sixth month. Word has it that she owes one or two people some money and was also behind her payment. I confronted Ann and she admitted that it was true. She relayed her difficulty in collecting the money and since it's staggered collection - the full payment for all the items that were owed was simply next to impossible.
It was a tough situation to be in. Ann was also a single mom and she can only accommodate so much. I understood her and gave her some slack. I was, however, starting to be concerned, and started to collect directly from the individuals identified on our list.

Some individuals were surprised that I was collecting from them because they did not know I was Ann's supplier. I stopped because I felt like it was improper for me to do so. But time was flying and I wasn't in any better state too.

We're now on our 10th month and Ann owed me about Php 200,000 - stocks and pending payment for purchased goods. All forms of communication with Ann are currently unavailable and/or inactive. I investigated the situation myself and found out that 1) she has already moved 2) she owed a lot of people money and 3) she also had a similar case in her previous call center.

I was so angry with what she did. For me, this is estafa on the grand scale! So I started to escalate her to her superior and unfortunately, I was advised that my business arrangement is personal in nature and the office cannot intervene. I was so pissed off and I felt cheated not only because of what Ann did but because the company I work for - with all its prestigious image and so-called care for employees - apparently cannot help me!

The 10th month is still ongoing and as I become more and more agitated and stressed of the situation, I realized that 1) I cannot press charges because I do not have a business contract 2) I cannot hold the company I work for liable because there was an office policy against selling without a license/approval 3) I have to charge this to experience and likely absorb the costs. I will not stop, however, in warning off others as regards the modus.

Amy vs Ms Irene
I'm 18 years old and I'm excited with a lot of things happening in my life. I still live with my parents, it's common here in the Philippines and I'm currently studying in college. In a digital age, having access to the internet and being familiar with news and potential modus, I never imagined I will be one of those people who'd be writing their experience on websites like this. I was quite hesitant at first, you'll see why later on, but I think it simply has to be out there. If I had known this beforehand, I am sure I would have been able to prevent it from happening and here I am.

Classes are about to close and I was quite busy finalizing last few items at school. Nobody's home but me and the helper. The landline rang and I answered and a frantic voice said, "Who's this?" "Amy," I replied. "May I know who's this?" The person did not answer, however, and said, "Listen, Amy... who's there with you right now?" she asked. "Our helper, Mary," I said. "Who is this, please? I repeated. "Look, Amy, this is very important. How old is Mary, again?" she said in a rushing tone. I replied, "57 years old." "Okay, Amy, I need you to get a place to talk where she cannot hear you. Is there anywhere you can talk without her overhearing? Do you have a cellphone?" she said. "Yes, I do. What is this about?" I inquired, getting worried. "Amy," she said, "You do not want Mary involved in this, I'm sure you don't want her to be part of this. This is about your parents. Can you call me directly when she's not around?"

I said I will call her, and she gave me a cell phone number. After putting down the receiver (landline), I immediately went to lock myself in the bedroom and called her on my cell. I don't even know her name but my heart was beating so fast. She said it was about my parents. I heard Mary knocking on the door, asking me what's wrong but she was not supposed to be involved so I rudely shouted between the doors, "You don't get a say on what's happening with me! Leave me alone!" All these happened while I was waiting for the woman to pick up on the cell number and when I was sure and I thought that by this time, Mary has already left, the conversation started again. "Amy," the woman said in a reserved serious tone of voice. "My name is Irene and I am talking to you because my husband is against this proposition and will not tolerate what I'm going to ask you but I want to help. Your parents collided with our car and we met minor injuries. I was hurt and my husband was outraged and is pressing charges. All of us are now inside the precinct and the officers are taking our statement. Your parents are now being detained inside a cell and will be held there unless you cover damages that we have incurred. Your parents said that you have money and they have valuable items at home that you can use, is this true?" I was so scared and was fighting off tears but knowing that my parents were in jeopardy, I held my ground. I said, "Yes." "Your mother said, that you have a sibling, is this true?" the woman asked, and I said, "Yes." "I am telling you, she continued, I am not kidding. My husband is pressing charges and you do not want Mary nor your sibling to be involved, in all this. Do you want to talk to your mom?" she asked. I said, "Yes."

A muffled voice came on the line, I couldn't understand much of anything that was being said but I heard a whimper and I heard a little voice that said "Amy..." then some sounds. My mom was crying and my heart started to break, but I had to be strong. "Mom, don't cry. Don't worry, we'll get through this... I'm coming." Then she was gone and the woman was there again. "Amy, this is time-sensitive. I do not know how long I can keep my husband from proceeding with the case. I don't want any other people in your family to be involved. I want to help you. I need you to follow my instructions, can you do that?" I said, "yes." "Amy, first you need to be fast and quick in getting what your parents said as valuable to cover the damages. Get as much as you could, otherwise, your parents will go to jail. Understand?" I gave a verbal nod. "Second, you need to limit your contact with others, you do not want them to be involved. My husband can only be reasoned accordingly. Nobody should know. Do you understand." I gave another verbal nod. "Last, but not least, you will need to buy a different sim and call me from another number. Call me again when you're ready. I will need to give you directions on how we can meet so that my husband does not realize that I'm already accepting the payment for the damages and that I"m okay."

I followed what she said to the suit and immediately left with Mary calling out where I was going. I told her "to meet a friend at a nearby street." I removed my sim card and inserted the new one and called Irene. "Amy, I need you to hail a cab right now. Don't worry, you're doing this for your parents. I will help you." While inside the cab, Irene asked for me to pass the phone to the driver so she can give instructions and I complied. The driver had my phone talking to Irene the entire time, but probably seeing that I was so agitated, helped me be comfortable by telling me what Irene was saying regarding the place where we were going and the streets we were in.

The driver brought me to the 7-Eleven near the Manila Pier. This is where I delivered a small bag with my parents' jewelry and some cash I was able to earn over the school year. I asked Irene how my parents were doing and she said they're okay and were waiting for my action. She said that she was able to talk reason to her husband and he has put a halt on the case. She will just need to go back and bring what I promised and all will be fine. She asked me if I still have money left on me and I said everything was in the bag and she said, that will not do. You need to have a few to take the cab. She fished through the bag and gave me Php200. She said she needed to go back now, she doesn't want her husband to think that something has gone wrong and with that I said, thank you and we parted ways. I was relieved and I hailed a cab to go back home. Now, secured and no longer rushed, I removed the new sim card and inserted my old one and I saw multiple offline messages sent to me, asking me where I was and what happened with me. Mary, apparently, felt that something has terribly gone wrong and has been looking for me in the 5 hours I was gone. My phone being unreachable did not help her feel secure so she has contacted all my relatives to find anything that may be helpful. This was only the time that I started to doubt myself. I called my brother and told him I was on my way home, he was more frantic than Irene over the phone but hearing that I was en route, he said we'll just talk at home. I went back to everything that has happened while on the way. In my simple understanding of things - I really felt that I did the right thing. I did not provide a lot of information, I asked for proof of life, I was compliant. My parents should be fine.

When I arrived home, my dad, my brother, and Mary were waiting for me at the living room, as if a panel, who was going to interrogate me. The looks in their eyes were full of worry, concern, and judgment. Seeing my dad there was a big relief for me but my doubts started to tower. They asked me what happened and I started to tell them the story and little by little, I began to feel how I was cheated into doing what I did. It was only then I realized that my mom and dad couldn't possibly be together during that time of the accident because my mom was in the province and my dad was at work. It was also then that I started to cry.

What happened to me was so clear, Irene's face, what was said but I really couldn't do anything about the situation. For a while now, I did not want to share what happened. I felt really stupid for having fallen for it. But there's no changing the past. My mom has lost about Php180,000 worth of jewelry, my dad about Php 60,000 from his watch and ring and I lost about Php 8,000 cash.

I believed the fictitious story on the accident and paid for inexistent damages and accepted fraudulent representation. I also think I became ignorant of the modus and was not thinking straight.

I'm thankful that I wasn't killed in the process. I trusted a complete stranger, met with her at an unknown place - even if 7eleven was a public place, anything could have happened. I however, still feel cheated.

MitchMorales vs PLDT
One morning a Sales representative calls me randomly. She congratulates me for paying on time since I did pay before the due date to avoid conflict on the billings. After congratulating me, she mentioned that I'll be granted with prices for paying on time. as a customer, you'll be happy to hear that News. when she asked me if I LIKE to have the following add ons. (Pocket Wifi, Telepad and others). I say Yes. but at the end of the call, I clearly clarified that it is all for FREE, I don't have to PAY anything. She said YES. Thus I thought, everything is ok. then suddenly when they delivered the add ons and see the package condition, I saw this contract that I have to pay additional amount monthly and other fees will be added on the next billing, I immediately went back to PLDT to raise my concern. I followed the procedure on cancelling the subscription, i wrote a formal letter noting all my reasons. after 2 months, surprisingly then REJECT MY REQUEST which brings the SHIT OUT OF ME. I even FUCKING clarified it at the end of the call and HOW DOES the MANAGEMENT have to reject my request when I DIDN'T EVEN SIGNED any CONTRACT!!! IN THE FIRST PLACE..I am the CUSTOMER and I KNOW WHAT EXACTLY what I want. how can the MANAGEMENT REJECTS it when I AM THE CUSTOMER and I CANT TO CANCEL it immediately citing the reason of MISREPRESENTATION. So fucking DUMB to put me into this situation!!!

Anonymous vs Sky Cable service provider
I subscribe to Skycable 299 with basic channels to enjoy the shows. When they represented me with different packages, I am quickly sold in availing the 299 package particularly because NBA premium and Basketball TV channels. I am a big fan of NBA and I tuned in everyday for NBA games, updates and analysis. It was on the month of April when the NBA playoffs is about to start. Suddenly Basketball TV and other channels gone Unavailable in the middle of subscription in the middle of the month of April.
I quickly went to the nearest office to inquire what happened and how will they redeem the customers. This is the statement from Skycable:
SKYCABLE has given no timetable on the return of Basketball TV and NBA Premium to its channel lineup, but assured it is “working on a resolution” with NBA rights-holder Solar Entertainment with the league's playoffs drawing near.
I am expecting it will only take few days to fix and the said channels will be back just in time for Playoffs.
What happened is until then, Basketball TV did not aired back. I went to the nearest office to complain. I was expecting then will redeem the incident like some sort of refund or additional channels. but instead, then simply say "SORRY" and nothing more. I ask them, "This is the fault of the Company right", the representative says "YES" and so I added "so what the customer gets is just SORRY, no refunds, no consolations, no adjustment of the billing?" they say "NO, just Sorry".
If you look closely, you are subscribing according to the channels they represented but they failed to deliver. I think it is unfair and Breach of Contract. They don't return the money and they didn't do anything either to make the customer satisfied/happy. instead, it sounds more of stealing.

I went to this website and so, while I was going through the content, something popped up. It was a mini roulette and I was intrigued because it said that when you spin the roulette, you will win a prize. I know what i did was stupid because I spun the roulette, after I spun the roulette, I entered my email address because it was said that you have to enter your email address after you have spun the roulette. After that, I realized it was a scam because the source didn't respond and the website was not secure.That made me strengthen the privacy of my email address.

After that incident, I have kept my number more private.

Anonymous vs Lanilyn Abaya
I had to take lunch an hour early one day to cover for my sick boss that night. One of us had to be there at all times.I opened the front door and there they were on the couch, clothes scattered on the floor, scurrying to cover up. It's burned into my head. At that point it gets blurry though. I froze for a second. I started seeing red and knew that if I didn't get out of there something bad would happen, so I left. I got in my car,locked the door, turned off my cell phone and started driving. I went back to work and pretended nothing happened.She tried to call me, I always said I was on another line and would call back when I could. She showed up about two hours before I got off and I had them tell her I was with a customer. She went back home eventually but I didn't. I slept in my car that night. I drove out on the local scenic parkway, parked at an overlook, and just sat on the hood of my car devastated. I didn't move the entire night. I couldn't sleep. When I went home, it was only because I had to work the next day. She asked if we could have an open relationship; I said no; she kept cheating; we divorced

Steve vs AAR Medical Care Center

AAR is one of the most famous and well equipped medical centers in Kenya. It is designed to cater for prenatal cases, outpatient cases and pediatrics as well. Since I realized that my wife was expecta a ant, I took her to AAR outpatient care at Nairobi CBD and we have employed their service to date. A month ago my son developed complications and as usual took him to see the usual pediatrician but this time things turned for the worst.
Lab technicians refused to extract some blood for a specified test by the doctor and for two hours, we waited for results tests that were nit being performed. On complaining to the doctor, they claimed that they did not know why what was happening. Later, we were prescribed some drugs and wile running the medical insurance card, realized that I was being charged for tests and drugs not provided.
I complained once more and requested for clarity on what was happening as it seemed I was being mishandled, ignored, and assumed yet my son needed proper medical attention

Steve vs Sales Person from Supposed Smartphone Communications Kenya
I was stopped by a salesperson who claimed that there was a 'Safaricom' promotion along Moi Avenue new Ebrahim Supermarket.If I took part, I was to win a phone and a laptop. I accepted and scratched a card from which I was informed that I won 3 phones, I was then asked to pay KShs. 5000 to claim the price, I was reluctant but then again the salesperson convinced me that the phones were worth over KShs. 15000 from the official Safaricom shops. On paying, I only got one phone, and was to pay KShs. 10000 to exchange the other two phone for laptop. To my surprise, after making the second payment, I could not get the laptop then, but after two days. However, on the second day, none of their contact details worked and they were no longer where they had set up at the time of purchase. I checked to confirm the value of the supposed promotion phones with Safaricom and they confirmed that those were rejects worth less than Kshs 500 each.

Anonymous vs Paypal KE
Paypal is an ultimate payment solution for numerous marketers and online freelancers working online across the globe. But it is not supported in all countries worldwide. However, whether you are using Paypal in a country where it is fully supported or not, the chances of having your account limited or closed for whatever reason is very high, hence, if it has not yet happened, it will happen in the future. This causes issues withdrawing these finds from Paypal.

When I contacted Paypal to inquire about the limiting of my account, I was informed that there are a number of reasons as to why the account could have been limited, but the common reason is suspicion of fraud or security matters. I had already verified the account with Paypal and all details were up to date.
However, I could not withdraw money, shop online, edit personal information, send money, cancel or close the account.
On launching complaints to Paypal, I kept on receiving the automated emails and informed that I can only access the money after 180 days.

Anonymous vs Getrudes Children Hospital
A few months ago my 3-month daughter fell ill and I took her to Gertrude's Children Hospital in Muthaiga. We arrived there at 1.30 pm but by 5 pm we had not been attended. Finally a very young doctor saw our daughter and within 10 minutes they suggested that the baby might have meningitis and we could only check into the hospital for three to five days for an in-patient procedure input that includes a lumbar puncture/spinal tap. This sounded drastic and so, my husband and I asked about doing a blood test as an alternative, but she insisted we had to do the lumbar puncture - nothing less and she made us sign up a form rejecting her advice. The charges were kes.8,500 general ward a day and a deposit of kes.70,000. Private room with sharing toilet and bathroom kes.12,000 or 15,000 a day with a kes.100,000 deposit. Private room with your own toilet and bathroom kes.21,000 a day with a deposit of kes. 20,000. The doctor's fee per visit would be 5,000 kes.
For a second opinion, we went to Aga Khan Hospital and the doctor did not mention meningitis but said that the baby had low blood sugar and that she would be fine in 24 hours.

Steve vs Dr Evans Kumari
A month ago I took my son who is a year and five months old to see a skin specialist as suggested by his pediatrician. He was suspected of having Molluscum contagiosum and we waited for 30 minutes for the doctor, Evans Kamuri, to see us at his private office at Doctor's plaza in Kenyatta National Hospital.
We finally got our chance to see them and they did not even waste five minutes, examining my son's condition (the warts are located around the diaper area). They quickly said we needed to admit my son at Nairobi West Hospital so that, the doctor could undertake a surgical procedure to remove the warts one-by-one. To undertake this, they said my son had to be under anesthesia. This seemed drastic and a little too much considering at the time the doctor was telling us what to do, they were chatting on the phone with another person waiting for them (I sneaked a look at his messages).
This process did not seat well with me and so, I decided to seek a second opinion and two weeks down the line, I met another dermatologist who prescribed a creamy drug to use for a month before finally deciding on performing any surgical procedure.
What's shocking is that a doctor will care less about the actual condition of a patient before they go ahead and prescribed a very invasive, complicated and expensive procedure for treatment.

Steve vs Kenyan Government
Kenya has been hit by severe drought for months now and this has resulted in scarcity of maize, the stable food. As a result, the price of this necessary commodity has almost doubled in less than 2 months thus raising the cost of living especially in the rural areas. A few weeks ago the government announced the importation of mexican maize that would lower the price of maize flour to kes.90 from kes.150. The move was welcomed but to the shock of many kenyans, the maize flour never reached most people, especially those living in the rural areas. The price has however increased to kes.160 and it is likely to raise.
No more communication has been released by the government on the matter.

Steve vs Alias Major Benson
Last night I received a text message and it seemed like the sender had mistakenly forwarded this information to my phone instead of their 'sister's' number. The message was informing the supposed sister that there are job replacements within the Kenya Defense Force and she needed to send details of her son, Ken and any other two young people who have attained a grade of D+ in their Secondary education studies. I called to inform 'Major Benson' that they had forwarded this to the wrong person and they were grateful but told me, I could get the posts if I had someone interested in becoming a KDF officer. However, in order to make it happen, I had to pay him Kes.100,000 in less than 3 days and send the details of my relative to them.
This seemed like a trick and I contacted by partner to inform him the 'luck' we had. One of my brother's in law desperately needs a job and this would be like hitting the jackpot if they had a 'Godfather' to help them directly secure the job.

To my surprise, my partner's colleague at work had received the same message earlier that day and it was proven to be a case of misrepresentation, spamming and attempted fraud.

Steve vs John Mune and Lucy Nganga
A year ago, my sister saw a poster by John Mune advertising a part-time job opportunity and all they needed was to get in touch and be able to attend the meeting to learn about this golden chance. She took the number and called him, then, she was given directions to a certain location where they meet every Friday at 3pm for weekly meetings. John had insisted that there was no money needed for anything.
At the meeting, my sister learnt that the job was selling GNLD products and it seemed promising. However, they had to pay kes.3500 registration fee and look for additional kes.5000 in order to start selling the products.
On asking John Mune why he had lied that there is no money needed to start, he defended himself saying, he did not say one has to start right away. However, they can earn money by referring people to the group and letting those individuals get recruited as salespersons.
Lucy Nganga was quick to offer her solutions such as contacting all individuals in her phone-book to lend her kes.10/- each so that she raises the much needed kes.8500.

Anonymous vs Public Likes
Have you been online lately? Facebook mostly I mean? There are numerous business ideas being advertised and more so, the people falling victims are the youths looking to venture into simple and easy activities of making quick money. Some of them include Social Biz Connect and the most recent one, is Public Likes. The basic idea is recruiting individuals, getting them to join, upgrade their accounts by depositing $45 or more, and refer their friends in order to increase their earnings. while the starter account is free, it is limited to the extend that your earnings are pretty low. In addition, you cannot make any money off your referrals.

The catch is for an individual to upgrade after joining and for this, they have to pay the company to upgrade. There are some surprising facts arising from this enterprise that have raise an alarm on any one who has been scammed or has seen their friends get scammed. For instance, the site is not secure yet individuals are providing personal bank details, phone contacts and Facebook information. In addition, the administrators are declining to provide responses to the kind of work they pay individuals for while working on their website.

Scam or Real business venture, we only need to wait and see how it goes once the number of individuals upgrading their accounts and working with the company reduces.

Anonymous vs Kambongosi Furnitures
A few weeks ago I came across an advert on Facebook whereby, Kambongosi Furnitures was selling quality Classy covers for 5 Seater sofaset. Their products could be custom-made and I looked forward to purchasing some and after chating with them, I placed an order and paid the deposit. Everything looked in order and there was no cause for alarm. The rest of the payment was to be paid on delivery, after two weeks. We remained in touch but after two weeks, the communication went cold. Three weeks later, nothing and they stopped picking calls.

sohi vs Bank of Montreal

Most Canadian banks do not allow international online money transfers, even if they do, they do not exceed a few hundred dollars. Instead of using illegal money transfer arrangements, I have a signed a verbal/ message agreement with the bank that if I send them a signed fax with the required details, they will transfer the money to any overseas account on my behalf. Its a signed and enforceable contract. The problem is every time I send the fax, I have to wait for months to get the money transferred because the verbal/message agreement was found missing from the banks files. I have to send my copy to the bank every time. I do not understand how can a bank not keep signed documents safe and lose them conveniently. To me it seems that banks or bank employees do it just to keep the money in a buffer and take personal advantage from it.

Anonymous vs Internic.ca
I am hosting a website with internic.ca for the last 10 years. Lats year my credit card expired and the renewal of my domain with internic.ca became a nightmare to the point that I had to register a new domain name with godaddy. Internic.ca uses a one dollar transaction to check if the user is for real. Banks dont like such stupid transactions and block credit cards. And so my credit card was blocked, because internic.ca kept attempting the one dollar verification. Instead of streamlining their processes, internic.ca kept asking me to contact my bank to accept the strange procedure. Not only my credit card got blocked, illegal transactions happened worth 3000 dollars just in those two days I was trying to pay to internic.ca. It seems internic.ca has people in their offices selling credit card numbers to culprits.

Anonymous vs AirMiles
Airmiles has started a shady game, where customers' miles will start to expire soon, which was not the case before. Now customers are forced to spend their miles as they might expire suddenly (with effect from a back date/ date of purchase in the past) and the rewards on sale are really over-priced so that customers have no choice but to lose their miles. Also sometimes the low price rewards are hdden from the customers with lesser miles, so that they lose their miles with no choice available.

Just like all other big guns, deep pockets, and untouchables in this world, Airmiles is acting as if Airmiles has done a favor to the customers by giving them airmiles. Airmiles should think otherwise. Customers have done a favor to the Airmiles and certain brands/ manufacturers/ vendors/ companies by choosing them over others while making purchases. Customer could have used other loyalty based offers like cash backs and store rewards etc.

Anonymous vs Paypal
Recently I made a payment to one of my clients but I happened to type the details wrong concerning the Paypal account for the specific client. Hence, the transaction was marked Cancelled on my PayPal Account. I realized this and repeated the transaction to the correct Paypal account of my client.

To my surprise, both transactions went through, the canceled payment as well as the actual payment the same day!
This resulted in a double payment to my account hence causing an overdraft to my credit card.

I contacted PayPal and they assured me that the canceled amount would be later credited to my account but it would take a couple of days.
Unlike most modern online payment systems, PayPal does not have edits on their system to flag an error for inaccurate transactions. In addition, they refuse to accept any financial responsibility.

Anonymous vs Paypal
I am never using Paypal again. They market their company by saying that "we got you covered", users beware, this is a bold lie! I personally learnt that I was not covered. I bought an item on eBay, checked out the payment with PayPal. However, I received a defective product and when I requested PayPal to kindly issue me with a refund, they refused.

The item return time was still valid, however, in their claims to deny the refund, Paypal insisted on providing all sorts of excuses in order to protect their profits.

While surfing on Facebook, a friend of yours messages you and after exchanging pleasantries, about health, family, work, etc, they bring up a topic about new and easy ways of making money.

You are eager to learn and you keep chatting with them until they are able to persuade you to click a link that will scam you out of your earnings!
Surprising, you might know that the person you have been chatting with is not your friend but a scammer who has copied your friend's Facebook page to look real. They have also been able to copy the list of friends to try and get money out of all of you.

Anonymous vs Microsoft
I have often had issues right after Microsoft installs an update to my PC. The March 2018 update locked me out by killing my mouse and keyboard so I could not log in. I spent around $140 at Fry's to have my PC files backed up and everything wiped. We all thought I had been attacked by a virus. After spending days trying to get into my PC myself, and days waiting for Fry's to restore my PC, I had to reinstall all of my programs. I spent almost 2 hours on hold with Viper support only to find out that they were inundated with calls from others having the same issues after to Windows update.

They re-sent my software and explained what happened with this:"We have researched this issue internally and have found this to NOT be a VIPER related issue. We contacted Microsoft directly and Microsoft has confirmed KB4074588 has known issues where some USB devices stop working. We recommend contacting Microsoft directly for any issues related to your USB Keyboard and Mouse no longer working. Their contact information can be found at ** or by calling 1-800-642-7676".

After trying to get answers and compensation over the phone, I had to drive to the Microsoft store and talk to a manager. He said they were aware of the issue that was happening "on older PC's". I showed him proof of my repair bills, and the receipts that showed my PC was only 9 months old. I am a senior living on Social Security with limited income and thought they might at least pay me out of pocket expenses. The manager came back with $100 in Microsoft gift certificates and said he would escalate my issue to corporate but could promise nothing. After getting home, I looked at what was available at the MS store. Nothing there was of interest to me. Follow-up calls just led to more frustration. I was given lip service and promises of return calls that never came. As big as this company is, you would think they could afford to at least cover the damages they caused.

Anonymous vs LORD ADAIR TURNER

An advance-fee scam is a type of fraud and one of the most common types of confidence trick. The scam typically involves promising the victim a significant share of a large sum of money, in return for a small up-front payment, which the fraudster requires in order to obtain the large sum. If a victim makes the payment, the fraudster either invents a series of further fees for the victim, or simply disappears. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advance-fee_scam)

Anonymous1234 vs IQ option
IQ option is a binary options website which allows people to "speculate" if the stock price of a company, a currency will go up or down. If you guess it right, you will receive a payment of up to 91%. Seems fair right? Well, it isn't. In fact, it's absolutely fraudulent. It tries to convince you that it is possible to consistently win, as long as you analyze the stock price carefully, which is impossible. No one can accurately speculate whether the stock price will go up within the next couple of minutes, hours or even days. In order to give you the impression that is is possible, they provide you with "analytical instruments", such as the Bollinger bands or charts. None of those instruments help you in predicting the stock price.

Buba vs Florin Pavelescu
A few years ago I received a mail saying that I was the winner of the green card. I was very excited, but when I continued to read the rest of the mail it sounded fishy, it was written that I had to pay a certain amount of money to start the proceedings ($879). That was suspicious, so I contacted people who really got a green card and it turned out that this is another of the many scams on the Internet.

Anonymous vs Sony
4 months ago we bought a 55 inch Sony from [Best Buy] with one year warranty, after few days we started to notice two white spots, after once in while the white spots became longer until we have a half picture, we called Best Buy, people advised us to contact Sony, and we did so. A female voice responded, she asked us to do few things with the original remote control, nothing happened. Then she told us the TV is defective, they will replace it, just wait for an e-mail & follow the instructions. We received the e-mail and what they asked us to do... To take 3 photos, 1st photo the TV showing its four corners, 2nd photo the serial number on the back of the TV which was hold on the wall by a bracket, it was very difficult to take the number, 3rd photo of the receipt, attaching them to an e-mail and to wait 4 working days, we did but we didn't hear from them!

We kept sending emails and make phone calls... Until one day a rude mean person called, accusing us that we broke the screen, I asked him, "Please let me talk another person." He refused, then I asked, "Can I talk to a supervisor," he refused too and he hanged up, letting me confused what I did wrong? Sony used to be my favorite brand, now it is the worst company on earth.

Mila vs Patricia Govender

After spending 11 years abroad, we decided to return to South Africa permanently. We hunted houses for rent online through web searches and also posts on social media. A woman called Patricia Govender messaged my husband on Facebook to introduce herself, saying that she was a rental agent who got our details from a mutual friend. She had several beautiful houses for rent in the Southern Peninsula, Cape Town, and they were well priced too. We were impressed with her service; she would send us photos of the houses and their surrounds, and kept in touch daily, taking interest in our family. She said she chose to take special care of us because of our mutual friend. We thought we had gotten really lucky.

We chose a house in Fish Hoek that seemed like a bargain; 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, double garage and a fenced garden for R8000 p/m. The deposit was two months' rent, and an 'administration fee' of R1500, which we felt we'd gladly give. My husband was a bit alarmed that we had to make the payment into what seemed like a private bank account but 'Patricia' found a way to assure him. We paid R17 500 into the account, and never heard from her again. I emailed and we tried to call numerous times, but the email address stopped working, and of course the phone number didn't exist. Our 'mutual' friend later denied knowing any such person.

Mila vs Pizzahut
Pizzahut has always been a favorite for Saturday suppers. We went to Highveld Pizza Hut restaurant and put in a large order for the family for a sit-down meal. The pizzas arrived, some cold, and with less cheese than usual. In addition, I found a hair in my pizza. My husband called the waiter, who called the manager Paul. Paul was uncooperative and rude from the word go. He insisted that the pizzas were the right temperature, and that my children were being difficult. He also insinuated that I had put the hair in the pizza which shocked me and hurt my feelings. This meal was a big disappointment for us as a family, we loved going to the restaurant, but we will not do so again.

The next day I called the franchise headquarters to lodge a complaint. We were given vouchers for free meals at a Pizza Hut of our choice.

Mila vs Mercury Insurance
I insured my car with Mercury Insurance when I bought it in 2012. Early in 2013, I was caught in a hail storm and my car sustained damage. I contacted the insurance, and at first they were helpful and diligent. I was sent a claim form which I duly filled out. The assessor was supposed to contact me to asses the damage. Trouble started here. I contacted the insurance office numerous times over months, and I was given multiple excuses, or my calls were put on hold. I even battled to get a schedule out of them. They also got unfriendly and off-putting. Eventually I just gave up and cancelled my assurance with them.

I reported them to the Ombudsman, but have not received any feedback.

Anonymous vs PayPal
I was recently informed by a client that money was sent to me via my Paypal account. However, I have not used my account for approximately 18 months, and had lost my password. The email and cellphone number associated with my account are also no longer in use. I had no way of logging into my account.

I browsed the PayPal website extensively to find a way to make contact with someone at Paypal in order to rectify this issue. NO email address is supplied to contact their help desk unless you're logged in. Which I couldn't do. A phone number is supplied which I was instructed to use to 'call as a guest'. The number doesn't work. There is NO WAY for me, an existing client, to log into the Paypal website, and NO WAY to contact anybody at PayPal in order to solve this issue. On the blogs, I could see that I'm not the only person with this type of problem.

The following is what PayPal claims on the landing page of their site: "We've got you covered. We can reimburse you if something’s not right.
Shop with peace of mind..." This, to me, is gross marketing lies of the service they offer - they clearly don't care about their clients. Period.

I approached Co-parenting for assistance with an ongoing custody battle, and was asked to pay Co-parenting R5000 up-front, which I did. The case was complicated, but that's why I looked for advice and representation. The manager, Christof Sharp, appeared reassuring and knowledgeable, and he may be so for others, but to me he was just a smooth-talking, greedy crook. He made a few phone calls on my behalf, but that's it - very little of what was promised to me during the initial interview actually transpired. I managed, with the help of other professionals, to gain legal custody of my child. Fortunately my drama is over, but this man and his company cannot be trusted.

So, I graduated in college august last year. Here in Brazil we usually do big parties when we graduated and there are a lot of companies that do just that: help students organize their parties. It's kind of expensive, like 4 - 10 thousands reais, it depends. One of the main parts of this contract is the photo coverage. The hired company is the only one allowed to take professional or semi professional photo and videos of the party and prom. So the problem is, I did ket my photo and didnt have big problems, but there is a lot of my friends who still couldn't buy the photo. They call, they go to the company, they sent emails, and the company just take a long time to go to their houses to sell the photos, i have friends even starting to think they lost the photos. It`s such a special moment for us and it`s really sad if we dont get this memories photos that we pay (a lot) to have.
In the print, my friend is telling that she payed the photos im march and they still haven't delivered the pics. (She received only this weekend)

I get that you have to pay after some minutes but its not my fault if the driver was going idk where and my friend had to wait for 15 minutes with no idea if he was actually planning to pick her up.

Anonymous vs ABIKE/DOLPHIN IMMIGRATION LAW CHAMBERS
Even though the oil prices are on an all time low now a days, a reputable oil company like Saudi Aramco, Gazprom, ExxonMobil, British Petroleum, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron, Total, Petrobras, ENI, StatOil, ConocoPhillips, or Petronas will never ever ask you to pay for a visa, health examinations, or any other employment related fees directly or through any lawyers or aw firms.

Spammers from various parts of the world use the vulnerability of job seekers by sending them lucrative employment contracts full of lengthy legal jargon, and lure them into paying minimal processing/ visa/ legal fees etc.

I received an email from a Mr Hakim Abdullah with the The Chevron logo, Lagos address, and even a really good scanned stamp from Chevron Escravos gave it the appearance of legitimacy. It was a well written and drafted document. I played along and then Of course I was asked to send USD 200 to a law firm not directly but indirectly. The law firm contacted me by saying that they have been contacted by Chevron and need the money to process the visa papers. They also said that the money will be reimbursed by Chevron upon arrival at workplace.

Steve vs Nigerian Government
During election periods, the government officials, aspirants and members of the parliament, campaign to win elections and secure power. They make promises such as delivery of better services to the locals, development of better infrastructural facilities, creation of jobs among other issues. The current administration in Nigeria has been claiming that they are fighting corruption and prosecuting corrupt officers as well as recovering lost money. However, no statistics have been released to the public. No explanations on who has been prosecuted and it seems, the fight is one-sided to favor powerful but corrupt individuals.
The government reports to the public highlighting their success but nothing is clear nor are they providing answers to the questions raised.

Anonymous vs PAypal Online
For ages I have been using Paypal for online transactions but it is disappointing how they decide on how much I need to run my business. Recently, I went through a long process of uplifting the limit to my money that I have on the account but they declined and instead, they decided to hold it for 21 days! I called the company in order to speak to to the customer care service provider but to my surprise, I was informed that the audit department does not have a customer service unit.

Anonymous vs Someone from Bangladesh

A few days ago I got a call from a strange looking number. Caller ID said that the number was a Bangladesh number. I didn't answer of course. The phone kept ringing, and after I ignored the call, I got a couple of other calls. Different numbers, but they were all Bangladesh numbers. It started to feel like harassment, so I decided to block all the numbers. I was curious, though.. Maybe even a bit weirded out, but I didn't think much of it. Until today. I heard from some of my friends that they either received or heard of someone receiving these weird calls too. Apparently, sometimes, you even get a message that would beg you to answer. Turns out it's all part of some sort of scheme to scam people out of lots of money.

Anonymous vs Aleksandar Vucic
Aleksandar Vučić was the Prime Minister of Serbia from 2014 to 2017. He won the presidential election by manipulation, voter intimidation and near total domination of Serbia's media. He was the only presidential candidate that had commercials promoting him as a candidate on every Serbian TV channel. There are registered cases of foul play where even people who died received a ballot to vote. (And a lot of cases where dead people voted which makes absolutely no sense, only further inclining that the election was rigged) Vučić is part of the populist conservative Serbian Progressive Party, his party, unfortunately, has the most influence. Therefor it has a lot of people with power and in high positions that support the party. People were threatened that they would lose their job if they don't vote for him. That is blackmail! Other people were bribed into voting for him by being payed 1000 RSD (less than 10$) and a sandwich. There were numerous irregularities during his campaign, during the voting and during the counting of the votes. Protests immediately started and were called "protests against the dictatorship". The protesters were citizens, the police union, the army union, the youth, students, liberals,communists and pension unions.

Buba vs Tehnomanija
Six months ago I bought a fridge in company name Tehnomanija here in Serbia, it was not so cheap. After a few months I noticed that part of the magnet had fallen off, and on the outside I noticed that they had covered the rust. As if it was an old fridge that was rustling and that they were masking and selling again like it is a new one.

Buba vs Interproject gemmacom babe doo
We got invitation from the company Interproject gemmacom babe d.o.o. by phone to the presentation at the SAVA Center.
There they "presented" our offer that we can not in any way refuse and that was to have "our" apartment for about 4000 EUR, every year for 7 days while we are alive, and we can leave it to inheritance, etc.

The truth is that in those 7 days we have to pay maintenance and electricity costs (about 7000 dinars), that is the money for which you can rent a room in any spa for 7 days. After payment of the first part of 1200 EUR when we realized that we were deceived, they did not allow the cancellation of the agreement within two days, but only allowed us to use 4 times a year for 7 days apartments in the country club Babe (which is close now) or Kopaonik in the following years (with the costs maintenance and electricity about 7000 dinars). At the moment, they can not be found at the address either over the Internet or over the phone, so there are likely to be many cheated citizens

Buba vs Puls consulting
Firm Puls consulting invited my parents by phone to the presentation of their medical device and with that full check of my parents health which was financed by an international humanitarian organization they said.
When my parents got there they seriously explained all the health problems and the connection with the wrong treatment and even fatal outcomes, for which the solution is a bearing with magnetic fields, and even organized a "prize game" that gives a discount when buying Bed for magnetic fields treatment. The price for it is abnormaly high and some people who were trick to by it have problems to return their money.
After little research we found out that "In accordance with the Law on Medicinal Products and Medical Devices, advertising material must be approved by the Agency for Medicines and Medical Devices of Serbia," and The Medicines Agency did not approve the mentioned promotional material. From this institution they state:
,, Puls consulting ', have not a single product has been registered as a medical agent with the Agency. "

Anonymous vs Dr Simpore Rachidi
Inheritance frauds are run by criminals who obtain email lists with account owners' names. They create mass mailings, describing how a fictitious individual died in a remote part of the world. If a recipient replies to the email, the criminal will engage in what is called an "advance fee" fraud, and attempt to convince that person to send money to pay for legal fees, bribes, or other expenses in order to get the money out of the country.

You never get the room you booked. I paid for a room with a king size bed and a balcony with a view of the ocean. The websites like hotels.com, booking.com or ebookers.com ask you to pay upfront online so that the room is ensured and a discount is offered. When you arrive at the hotel, the desk clerks offer you rooms with three queen beds or rooms with views of city street etc. You are already there, you have already paid, you are left with no choice to accept the whatever room.

A car rental that costs USD 60-70/ day at Frankfurt Airport will cost USD 90-100/ day at Tunis Airport. The car at Frankfurt airport will be neat and clean and dent free and with lower driven kilometers. The cars at Tunis airport are always dirty, smelly, dented, rusted, with over 60,000 kms and with engine sounds of a dying donkey. If you rent a car for two weeks, you are better off buying the same car for the price of the rental from the local Friday flee market and throw it in the ocean or leave at the parking lot on your way out.

Anonymous vs Richard McCarl
My aunt told me that she had an online relationship that went south. One day a gorgeous man by the name Richard McCarl added her on facebook. His profile said that he was divorced, and that he was in Iraq. He was a soldier. She said that they talked for days and days, and that it was wonderful. "He was such a romantic man" she said. He would write her poems, and tell her these incredible stories about how much he's falling for her. My aunt has no children and is also divorced. Turns out, that is the kind of woman these men target for their dirty little scam. He told her that he wants to settle down when he returns from Iraq, and that he wants a life with her. My aunt was beyond happy, but then he started asking for money. At first he started asking for small amounts of cash, but over time they got bigger. My aunt thought that he was a real person since his profile had all the pictures, he had tagged photos of him and his friends. Long story short, my aunt ended up sending him about 200$, and when she refused to pay a thousand dollars for (supposedly) a plane ticket, he deleted his profile.
In the end, we found out that all those other profiles (the profiles of his friends) were also fake. It's a whole scam ring that is made to lure women such as my aunt in. They look for desperate women, often from all around the world, who are willing to send money to their internet fling.

Anonymous vs Nikon
I purchased a "Refurbished" tilt-shift lens from Nikon USA that was described as being "Like New" after being gone through by them. I paid over $1500 for the lens and so I'm expecting a quality product. The lens arrived and one of the adjustment knobs wasn't working. I contacted Nikon immediately and told them of the situation. They told me I could send it in for repair. I asked how long that would take and was told it would be around 2 weeks or longer if they had to order parts from Japan. I wasn't happy with that answer. I bought the lens because it was advertised as being already repaired and in proper working order. So I said I would like to return it for either a replacement or a refund. They told me they didn't have an exchange and that they would issue a refund. I sent it back following all their instructions and with a proper return authorization number.

Now I've been waiting for my refund so that I can purchase a lens from another seller since Nikon said they don't have another in stock. They've had my returned lens for 2 weeks now and I still have not been refunded. They say it can take up to 2 billing cycles to receive my money back... WHAT??? They are keeping my money for up to 2 months?? Will I be paid interest on my money?? I ordered this lens for a project, I don't want to wait another 2 months. I have over $30,000 of Nikon gear I use in my business. This really doesn't sit well with me. For the first time ever I have a strong urge to sell all my Nikon gear and switch camera systems. This is not the service I expect from Nikon.

While Robin Gupta Executive from Trade India made lots of promise that you will make lakhs of business per month and this and that your money will recover in just one shot. But till date I am not getting any response from buyers. I send them my collection, prices they didn't ask a single query regarding this.

Every other day I get calls from there different executives to take some plans of 45,000 RS or 93,000 RS. They are so well trained that can hack your mind and get the amount transferred into their account and after getting amount they don't have any responsibility towards the promises they make.

They told me to show my company what's in designing private limited on the top of the Google. Now when I asked regarding Google promotions they are saying that only number of customer visiting website can make my company to look on the top of Google. I mean this is such cheating as in starting they said they are taking money for Google promotion and if website hit will make my company to be visible on top than for what they asked money.

I than talked to the executive regarding the issue that buyers are not responding than he started to give lots of excuses. That they gets many more quotation, may be you are not dealing well with them, your price could be high, your designs could be inappropriate, and many more things.

After giving salam, a person told that "Have you a DBBL (Duch Bangla Bank LTD) account of your own?" She says "yes. I have" The person then told that "your account is not safe. It is blocked. If you have any money oo your account then urgently take off your money from it. Otherwise, If you want I can help you. What you say about it?"

That moment, she was being scared and without thinking any thinking she says "yes". Then he (the unknown person) gave some instruction and she undoubtedly follows them all. After the call ends then she checked her DBBL (Duch Bangla Bank LTD) account and she notices that it was empty. There is no money.

That time I was totally empty. At last, I call my family but they have already refused me. I was helpless. Then the manager offers me to do a prostitutes work. There was on way. That moment has made me a prostitute. I have forced to choose this profession for a living.

After 5 years I see my boyfriend again in that hotel with another girl. Then I follow him and see that he and the hotel manager are friends. Their main business is making prostitute by using the snare of love.

I travel a lot, and my instagram account is very important to me. It's how I meet people, create contacts and make memories. Long story short, my instagram account is very dear to me, and it's not just a social platform, it's a huge part of my life. I started noticing that some of my posts were missing, without me being able to remember that I deleted them. Another time, I saw that I was following zero people! At first, I thought that it was some kind of instagram bug, and I hoped that it would fix itself, and that I would have all the people that I followed back. (It was never fixed, someone must have manually unfollowed everyone that I was following.) Can't really explain why, but I had a feeling that I should change my password to something way more complicated. A couple of days ago, instagram notified me that someone from China tried to log into my account.

So I call Adidas and get the most unprofessional support. First off, Adidas must be just hiring anyone for their customer service because the representatives you talk to do not sound professional. Even the supervisor I requested to talk to didn't give a care in the world about my issue. All he could offer me was to return the shoes and gave me a 15% discount code.

Now mind you, they have a FULL stock release in EU and AU, yet they can't even ship me out a replacement after not making sure QA did their job before my shoes came to me. By far the worst customer service from Adidas. They showed that they didn't even want to perform well and beyond to even help me out a little bit. Super disappointed but can't do much now. Just my experience with their customer service and relations department.

Anonymous vs GnB English Academy

GnB English has a number of franchises across South Korea. Each is privately owned and run. With the exception of a few schools in Seoul, they are notorious for their poor treatment of the teachers, both native and foreign. The GnB in Gwang-yong Dong, Cholla-namdo, was no exception.

I worked as an English teacher to full classes of often over-worked and tired school children. This was not the issue - I'm an experienced ESL teacher with many years' teaching under my belt, yet I had to take teaching instruction from a CEO who could barely understand or speak English. He was also a racist with loose business ethics - each month I had to beg for my salary. I fell ill with pneumonia in the second last month of work and spent three days in bed, for which I was severely 'penalised' - the CEO paid only half my salary and refused to pay my plane ticket back home. This is illegal in S.Korea, but it doesn't bother most private hagwon owners.

Anonymous vs Samsung
During the last year, my Samsung Smart TV Series 7 (7500) has stopped playing Netflix or Youtube etc. Even the websites with streaming videos dont work. I found out that the common denominator is the TV. It is not supporting the video based websites or apps anymore. When I approached sumasung, no answer was provided. There are many blogs on Samsung website, blaming internet connection or the owners of Netflix and Youtube. Surprisingly Netflix and youtube work on the newer models. A perfect example of a giant untouchable like Samsung trying to deflect responsibility on others. Obviously there is a problem with the core system Samsung is based on. Most companies try to develop a bug fix rather than blame everybody else for their buggy system.

Anonymous vs Facebook
This happened to my mom right in front of me about a month ago. She randomly got a message from someone she didn't know saying her request to connect on Messenger had been approved. She did not try to connect to this person. Within a minute, it said she had successfully sent them $200! We tried to cancel but it went through too quickly. This happened on the computer, so I took a pic with my phone. Within 3 minutes from when they were connected on Messenger, everything was gone. There was no message to this person anymore!

Since Facebook has linked up with PayPal, we disputed this payment with both and the claim was denied! We then took it up with the bank, who also denied it. They all three claimed it didn't seem like "unusual activity" since money has been sent through Messenger before. The money that was sent before was a donation of $50 while we were surrounded by crazy wildfires. Never has a large sum of money been sent to an individual. I'm planning on leaving this review on PayPal as well as the bank, in hopes I can be connected to someone who has gone through this and successfully disputed it.

Anonymous vs Cruise Travel Agent Company

I am an immigrant who wanted to shift from a duplex flat to 2BHK. We finalized an apartment building through a real estate agent and signed an annual rent agreement as well. When it comes to shifting to that apartment, we were shocked to see the presence of another occupant in the same apartment. I tried to get in touch with the agent but his phone was not reachable. I tried many times but all in vain and I received a message from the bank that the cheque had been cashed. Unfortunately, we don't have contract copy because that agent had taken it back, saying that he will return the same copy after owner's signature. We immediately approached nearest police station. They replied we have to approach Supreme Court (public prosecution) first. We did the same and opened the file.
For three months, we have been trying to register our case, but the CID officer asked us to wait. Every time I go for a follow-up, he tells me to 'come back next week', 'agent is not responding', 'he is out of country', 'wait more' and so on... When I requested for cancellation of my other cheques, he asked me to wait and keep a low balance in account as the cheque will bounce and they will find out the person if any complaint comes.
The agent is from Nepal and he left the country already. I am stuck now because the officials are not giving a clear picture.


Anonymous vs HSBC BANK
I was a privileged client of HSBC Bank from the past few years. I have held different accounts with the bank including savings accounts of myself. A Couple of days back, I, had applied for home loan under personal category, with the Bank. Promptly, a home loan processing fee of Re 12, 000 was also paid by me.

Subsequently, the home loan was approved and we were asked to pay an additional processing fee of Re 17, 000. Upon inquiring the reason for extra fee, we were told that since we own a personal business (Limited Liability Partnership), our loan was approved under business category. As we were not satisfied with the bank’s condition of loan approval under business category, we rejected the loan offered to us. Also, we requested for the refund of home loan fee (Re 12, 000 already paid). We were informed that a refund will be given after deducting Re 3000 (for address verification done) It is very unfortunate that even after 3 months, we have not received our refund of Re 9,000.

After giving up on receiving my hard earned money because of the indolent attitude of HSBC staff. I request bank to refund my fee, along with compensation for interest.

Anonymous vs Paypal

I sold iTunes gift cards worth of 500 dollars on eBay and the buyer asked me to send iTunes codes through message as they required those codes. They kindly thanked me but seconds later, they disputed the charge on their Paypal account with the company. At this point, I was unaware of the proceedings and so, I shipped the physical gift cards to them in order to allow me forward the tracking number as proof of transaction.
When I realized I had been tricked, I complained to Paypal but nothing helped me to get back the money from the buyer since the company sided with the client.

I later complained to BBB hoping this would help me get back my money by making PayPal reimburse the money I lost. However,I was informed that since I happened to send the codes to buyer via a message on eBay, I was not eligible for seller protection. Paypal handles these issues so carelessly thus encouraging fraud, this is very much disappointing and discouraging for sellers, especially first time sellers on the site.

mayhoo vs Emirates Airlines

The TV, the seat reclining controls, and the light were all acting up on my seat in business class. Not just mine, but the seat next to me also had the same problems of malfunctioning controls. I could recline the seat across from me; and I could turn the lights on and off for people sitting on other seats. How could an airline allow a plane to fly with malfunctioning instrumentation systems in the aircraft. I asked two different hostesses at two different times to fix the TV and the seat controls and she said she was unable to do that. And there was no seat vacant. I asked her to move me to economy class so that I can at least relax or watch a movie, and she said she is not allowed to do that. It is obvious that no maintenance checks were done before letting the aircraft fly and when I emailed emirates customer services using the inflight wifi, the response was a total denial.

Emirates gotta be operating the most noisy flights in the whole world, disturbing people in their sleep. People are watching movies and announcements butt in to talk about how amazing Dubai is. People are chatting with other passengers to kill time and Emirates starts bragging about its charity foundation and starts humiliating people from Bangladesh for how poor they are. Who wants to know the no of servers on board, or no of languages they speak. Passengers are stuck in a confined space and Emirates uses this situation to brag about itself. Needless to say that more efforts are being made in cheap marketing rather than improving deteriorating services. Passengers don't pay premium emirates price as compared to other airlines to be nagged through out the duration of flight

ALICE vs Shashane

I went to this website which offers online jobs , so while I was going through the job posts I saw this one post which caught my attention and so I made my bid and submitted a proposal. I guess it was the next hour that I received a reply from the employer, I was excited but when I read the reply, I felt cheated because what she said on the job post was different from what she replied to me. The title of the job post was “Need 5 Persons Who Enjoy Reading- Must Have Kindle App”. It was said in the description that the task was simple and that the 5 lucky applicants will be paid $10 each but then what she replied to me after I gave my proposal was different, she actually wanted me to buy her book for $0.99 and she will pay me $10 in return. I did not agree and reported that employer. I feel cheated because I did not submit a proposal to the employer to buy her book but to apply for a job that she has posted which was actually a scam.

Mila vs Vodacom

As part of a 24-month contract, I got a Galaxy S5, which started to give me problems soon after I received it. I took it back to the dealer, who sent it to the Vodacom head office for repairs. It was returned to me after a month, still faulty, and the dealer said that it had water damage, and that it was not a new phone! I pointed out to them that I got it from them, and provided proof of this. I also pointed out that the phone had never been exposed to water. After 2 months of calls and visits to the dealer, they told me flat-out that they will not be replacing the phone, taking no responsibility whatsoever.

This to me is not only crap service, it is also fraudulent, because they supplied the used, old phone in the first place. I had to buy myself a new one (not a Galaxy). I won't be renewing my contract with Vodacom.

On 13 May 2019, prosecutors charged al-Bashir with "inciting and participating in" the killing of protesters. A trial for corruption (after $130 million was found in his home) and money laundering against al-Bashir started during the following months. On 14 December 2019, he was convicted for money laundering and corruption. He was sentenced to two years of imprisonment.

On 5 November 2019, the Forces of Freedom and Change alliance (FFC), which holds indirect political power during the 39-month Sudanese transition to democracy, stated that it had reached a consensus decision in favour of transferring al-Bashir to the ICC after the completion of his corruption and money laundering trial. In the following days, Sudanese transition period Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok and Sovereignty Council member Siddiq Tawer stated that al-Bashir would be transferred to the ICC for individual criminal responsibility for genocide, crimes against humanity, and war crimes committed since 2003 in Darfur.

I tried looking for an email address where I could send my CV in text format and could not find.

I believe most HR people are lazy. They create internet based artificially intelligent programs where candidates have to spend hours inserting data about their lives and education and experiences, so that these programs can filter a few out of thousands of CVs based on the keywords devised by the HR people. Most HR people being not aware of the educational terminology, use the wrong keywords to attract or filter CVs.

United Nations is meant to help people with "High speed Internets" and "no internet" alike and such methods are discriminatory.

That night my son developed stomach crams that got so severe I had to take him to hospital. He couldn't walk, the pain was so bad. The doctor on duty diagnosed food poisoning due to a bad oyster, and my son was booked into the hospital for 4 days. Later a nurse told me that the doctor had been worried my son wouldn't make it.
I visited the take-away after a few days to report what happened, as I felt it important that they be warned about the spoiled oyster. The manager on duty was unavailable to see me, but the waitress who helped me couldn't have been more indifferent. She hinted that it couldn't be proven it was their oyster that caused the food poisoning and therefore she didn't really care.
