Before you buy… check RipOffReport.com

As a computer geek, people often ask me about buying online.  Personally, I buy A LOT of stuff online.  I’m less worried about credit card theft online, than I am about the companies who "sell" their wares.  I have had many bad experiences with companies because I didn’t check them out first.

FlashMemoryStore.com … Part 1

I am a HUGE customer service FREAK!  I believe strongly in that old saying "The customer is always right".  No, that doesn’t mean the car dealership should replace your car if you don’t like it after three months – it means, if you buy an item or service and are not satisfied with it, the company that sold you that item or service should do whatever they can (obviously within reason) to make you happy.  Why?  Because of another old saying "Make one customer happy, and they MAY …

www.AlertMe.net

You may have gotten an email from me a while back, but here it is again… This is a service that myself and a friend put together after I shared the idea with him.  I had been thinking about this idea for MANY years, but never did anything about it.
