When I first found out about FC, I created an email address just for FC offers so that the spam would go there. FC contacts me at my real email address.

You can find me on Youtube!

I WAS TOLD NOT TO CRITICISE FUSION CASH BY MEMBERS MAYBE EMPLOYEES OF FC
« Reply #31 on: December 24, 2011, 06:25:26 am »
i posted a few criticisms about FusionCash, blowing off some steam, because i was frustrated. some members popped up and told me not to criticise FusionCash, another told me they would sue me for making them look bad, and stuff like that. i guess you have to say only nice things about this most generous company.

in one post i stated that after my first day with Fusioncash, at 7:30 am the phone started ringing off the hook. hundreds of unwanted telemarketing calls.

FusionCash's sponsors pulled my credit 152 times !!!

FusionCash's sponsors charged my credit card and my cell phone hundreds of dollars for stuff when i clicked on "free offers...do not require credit card"

A nurse called me and told me she was coming to take my blood (you can't make something like this up, folks).

i have not received credit for most of my offers and surveys i took. some of which i paid hundreds of dollars already. i am up to $18 in FusionCash money.

it doesn't add up.



this was one of my posts:

somehow, they came to some conclusions based on my survey answers. i never answered a single survey that i had erectile dysfunction. although, i was asked. WHAT CAME NEXT...

FusionCash? they are calling my house asking me if i suffer from erectile dysfunction, sounded like Wilfred..from the "diabetis" commercial. i didn't need that today. that's like calling your house asking you questions about how you feel living with cancer. i didn't ask for those helpful calls. why would anyone want to buy products from their sponsors if they are so disrespectful to potential customers. i told the guy, if i had erectile dysfunction (as FusionCash false claimed to you that i suffered from), i certainly did not need an emergency response phone call from you to save me from it.

Wow, something is seriously wrong dude. I have never had such problems, other than those sites I willingly gave my phone number to.  Hope you get it straightened out. Mean while I am enjoying FusionCash, good luck and Merry Christmas

I do hate not getting credit for doing something I did - primarily on surveys. But as to other's people's frustration about telemarketing this is the reason I avoid certain offers even if the incentive looks initially attractive. On sites like Fusioncash I only do certain things and never things that ask me to provide my credit card.

Another member did not tell you that they would sue you for making FC "look bad".  The actual posts are archived by message ID#s so, falsely interpreting them in order to 'troll' casts the same dubious light on your other speculations.



i guess you have to say only nice things about this most generous company.



As long as you are willing to accept any consequences of what you post, there's no compelling reason to post as desired.

Just be really careful what information you give out and you should be okay. I've never really had a ripoff ad to my knowledge.

Websites cannot actively check every claim made by advertisers. If something looks suspicious, don't get involved. By the way, if you read the fine print for many of the offers on FC, it will tell you that by submitting your information you agree to receive spam from the advertisers. That
is why it is best to get new email addresses specifically for these offers, and don't give them any information you don't want them to have.

This is excellent advice.  If an advertiser does cross the line, consider opening a support ticket to let FC look into the matter as well.

I haven't really had any problems.  I have one email for my survey stuff...FC and a few other sites.  And a personal email for family and friends.  As far as the spam phone calls go, I google them and answer or call back the ones I am interested in.  Not a big deal really.

 :dontknow: its easy yes to get some alternative email addys to use for offers that may spam ur inbox however as far as phone solicitations... some have a box that you click to say yes you are willing to recieve phone calls uncheck the box...and its quite impossible to expect everyone to beable to afford a VALID alternate phone number to give for these calls...you could always tell em they have to wrong number or screen the calls from ppl u dont recognize the number, call em back and when you get the recording with the option to be put on thier no call list push the number they ask for and the calls will stop! It worked for me!
