What is the worst time you have been ripped off by a company?


We have all been victims of scams, whether it be a company offering a free trial and then billing your credit card, or something perhaps more sinister. I would like to hear recounts of these experiences, with all the gruesome details, please.

    That's a huge bummer considering considering solar is one of the best ways to isolate yourself from a possible collapse of the power grid. Could come in handy if one of them CMEs comes splashing out our way.

    @PP: we had a similar issue in the states. There was a huge public upheaval about it so they made some public statements about it. They probably wised up and figured out another, less transparent way to con us.

    I actually got called by some guy pretending to be the IRS, he even recorded the IRS automated response on a burner phone to really sell it. Weird thing was, he didn't ask for personal info or anything, just said that the IRS was coming with police.

    Yeah, I also remember those Nigerian prince scams that started back when I was a freshman in undergrad. Seemed so legit too, haha. Thanks for answering word.

    Man, seems like everyone's out to get each other these days. Sad.
