Topic The last band or artist you saw live?
27 Jul 2015 16:28
I go to concerts alone all the time, because I guess I haven't found the one to accompany me to them yet. Currently the last band I saw live was Van Halen. 3 of the 4 original members were there, but I can't say I was that impressed. Eddie can still play and his son wasn't bad playing base. Alex is still decent at his age, but David's pipe aren't as clear as they once were. It was still a decent show, but I just wish I could have seen them during their prime.

I agree seems more like a sub category. Seems to tie in perfectly with Seduction and Cheating, but not quite enough to stand alone.

I am assuming you spoke directly with your bank - or better yet, if they have a branch near you, visit them in person. If there isn't one nearby, I'd email and/or write a letter to your bank summarizing what you were told over the phone about the bank stopping it. No matter if the scammers are a legal company or not - they are likely blood suckers and will try to hit your bank account again... and again... and again... Your bank will work with you but it's best to document everything.
I did and got most of it back, but not all of it. As I said, I didn't give all the details, but no one asked for them. Anyway, I just wanted to give everyone a fair warning. Now I got them, so that name won't get me again as my bank blocked them. I can only hope I somehow don't become screwed over by the same kind of scam again.

Thanks for the heads-up; it's thoughtful of you. I'm afraid to say that you could now be faced with an ongoing dilemma.
I've done a little research on this company and, yes, this type of scam seems to be prevalent throughout the US. Unfortunately, some scams are perfectly legal. It's a matter of the unsuspecting customer not knowing that he/she is being had.
Your original post seems to suggest that you have spoken to this company on the phone and entered into a verbal agreement that says you have agreed to pay a monthly subscription fee in exchange for magazines. These companies are very cunning in that they explain the terms and conditions of the agreement in an esoteric manner, using technical jargon the likes of which you or I would not understand, in order to secure the deal.
You mentioned in your original post that you could receive 6 magazines per month for the next five years in exchange for a monthly fee. If that is what you have agreed to and they have already withdrawn $45 from your account, then there's a good chance this company will be withdrawing $45 per month from your account for the next five years in exchange for goods. That amounts to $2700, a hell of a lot of money for a stash of porn mags.
If that is the case, seek professional advice immediately and take measures to ensure that the company can no longer withdraw money from your account. In the UK we have a charity-funded organisation called the CAB (Citizens Advice Bureau) which gives advice to help people with their money, legal, consumer and other problems. Since you reside in the US, obviously that option isn't available to you.
When you refuse to pay the monthly fee, this company will bombard you with phone calls and threats of legal action, so it is imperative that you seek advice and find out where you stand from a legal perspective.
This is something I feel most strongly about, since my grandparents were targeted by fraudsters and swindled out of a significant sum of money. Yes, in the UK these arseholes actually prey on the most vulnerable members of society i.e old age pensioners.
It's easy for us all to fall foul of these scumbags, so stay vigilant and learn from your mistakes.
Well, as they aren't a real company, I don't think they have any legal ground here. I just gave them my numbers on a card and I canceled it, so they can't get anything else from me. Sense I canceled it before it cleared, I could get the money back, but the jury is still out. So, I don't think they can take me to court. It is no consequence that so many people claimed to get screwed over in the exact some way by the same people from same 'company.'

I am sorry that happened to you. Unfortunately, there are a lot of scams that happen everyday.
If it sounds too good then it's always a scam.
Yeah, unfortunately it happened after I just worked in a hot RV factory for 10 hours. By then, about everything sounds good. Really, I just wanted to let people here know, in case these people try to screw someone else over.

I don't know where the best place to put this is, but I want to warn everyone. I, as someone that just screwed over, want to give a fair warning to the people at least in the US. I don't know if they've reached people further than that or not. As this is an adult site, I'm assuming this applies to at least a decent portion of people here. I got a postcard in the mail just stating that I should call concerning a free DVD.
I subscribe to a number of adult magazines like Penthouse, Hustler and many others, I thought it was from a publisher. No, it was from some magazine service, promising not one, but two DVDs with only a small shipping fee as well. I was told for $19 a month, I could get like 6 different magazines for 5 years. Thinking about it now, I'm hitting myself for falling for this.
Nevertheless, I did. They go by Diamond Enterprises, not to be confused with the construction company. They are based out of Stockton, California and I found several reports from people getting ripped off from this 'company'. Anyway, not 5 minutes after I hung up the phone, there was $45 missing from my bank account, as I don't have a credit card. 5 for the DVD and 40 for my first month. (Yes, 40 is not 19.)
Well, I could give you more details, but I think you get the gist. You could ask me if you really want them. I took a picture of the postcard. I know it is backwards, but I'm sure you could recognize it if it showed up in your mailbox of the sudden. If you do come across it, I just ask that you warn other people of it.
I surely wouldn't want my loss to be for nothing.

Topic Are prequels a good idea?

I wrote a story, but afterward came up with the idea to write another telling how pieces fell into place for the first one. Would that average reader prefer a prequel, or just have it come before the original story?
Topic If you could only eat one candy for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Come on this thread is ridiculous. Candy is poison to the body. Is connected with dozens of diseases. All that said... Licorice. Black licorice. I like those pinwheel ones.
I must ask, if it is in fact ridiculous, why did you even answer?

Yes, when you realize that he can be a loose cannon, capable of firing at any time, then you are positive. Obviously, I don't know all the details, which is another reason people have gotta judge these cases on a case by case basis, so no one can really make it a general rule of it. I still stand by what I said though. Obviously, if he hasn't hit you yet, it could be worse, so therefore, you definitely need to something to prevent something worse from happening. More than that, make it better, because it sounds like it will (If it hasn't already) cause a great deal of stress on you. I wish the best of luck to you.

Well done, anything less than that just tastes very odd to me. I didn't get that from my mom though, she likes rare to medium though.
