Here is a better example.
A very famous fitness club was advertising that if you get a new member to join you will get a free month that you do not have to pay.

Well I join so my friend can get a free month.
Well they never gave her that free month.

When a company advertises something like this and they and their various gyms across the USA do not abide by the TV commercial then that contract becomes NULL & VOID. So I never went back and 7 years later they still try to bill me or have a fake collection or fake law firm force me using scare tactics. Once I tell them the above then the law firms never call back.

I could have a class action law suit if I wanted to. 7 years compounded interest on harrassing me. I think that would add up over 15k.

I just want 5k of the 15k on this law suit if we win.... Any takers?

The fitness club starts with a "B"

It's good that we can post bad experiences.
While there can be harm, companies don't always walk the path of light.

We need a place to vent, post valid complaints, air grievances, and to be honest fix problems that we have through no fault of our own.

I'm waiting for Vista's problems to be solved and posted so I cay try to get Vista to work correctly...No luck yet on Media Center and this morning I found that the Backup program in Vista Ultimate can't see an external hard drive creating a problem there...
