There’s no fun in Farmville anymore.

farmville-logo (1)

This use to be a fun game for most Facebook users who had small farms, but over time the game becomes more of problem the bigger the farm gets. We became so frustrated with it, we had to go on a vacation from it!

  1. The constant Bushel Summary popups while plowing with the combine are just unnecessary and slow game play to a crawl.
  2. The constant “Flash Player has stopped responding” messages have made it time consuming and at times impossible to access the Craft Barn, Gift Box, and many other items on the farm, which slows the game play to a crawl.
  3. The constant popups when harvesting the animal pens makes it almost impossible to get them harvested and slows the game play to a crawl. It would be easier if they were not in the pens and we used the farmhand to harvest, so what’s the point?
  4.  Certain items such as the pen harvester require lots of Farmville cash so that the only way to obtain it is to actually purchase the harvester with real cash!
  5. Once you have expanded all you can for coins, there is no longer a reason to play anymore, because now any expansion will require hundreds of Farmville dollars, which in reality means cash money!

Zynga want’s you to pay for a VIP membership for the game to work great, wait, what? Sure we could pay for this game and these items with cash, but if it works this bad in free mode, why bother?

Well, Zynga I’m going be spending our money on getting far away from Farmville!

 

Careington Dental doesn’t care about you.

2017-04-14_2344

If your thinking Careington Dental offers a great price for a dental plan, rethink it! Careington Dental will take your payments and everything will be great until you go to the dentist. Suddenly your card expires and instead of notifying you so you can provided updated details, they will cancel you with no notification whatsoever and then tell your dentist that you cancelled.

When a plan is cancelled the subscriber should be notified, with this company they blame it on your email. They have your address, phone number as well as email do you think they care enough to send you a cancellation letter? No they want to deny that nasty little dental bill that just came in so no notification is given, and by the time you find out they won’t have to pay!

Careington Dental is the worst plan you can have, pay a little more so you can get better service and a company that actually cares about you, and doesn’t just have care in their name!

 

Uncle Chubby’s Delivers Burnt Food for GrubHub!

Image download 1013161222 (002)Map of Uncle Chubby's

Back in the day our family loved to order from this restaurant. It had great food and service, so it was always a great time with Uncle Chubby’s at the table.

This year we have ordered several times through GrubHub, even though the customer service seemed unfriendly and bored at Uncle Chubby’s, the food was still always good so it was worth the frustration.

Well after our last order, we will never order from this establishment again. I couldn’t wait for my lasagna to arrive, but it arrived burnt and almost 30 minutes late per GrubHub estimated deliver time. The employees had to notice how burnt this lasagna was (see picture above) when they put the lid on it and yet still sent it out to the customer anyway. When we reached out to the establishment we were told they were to busy to remake and redeliver the order not burnt. Apparently satisfaction is not important!

We were then informed we could call back at another time and there would be a credit waiting, and they would happily redeliver the food. I questioned this and was assured there would be a credit waiting. Well Uncle Chubby does not keep his or his employees word! When we called back no one had any idea of a credit and the owner actually argued about it, and even though there was proof of the order through GrubHub he was still unfriendly and unwilling to replace what was paid for and received burnt.

Even GrubHub couldn’t understand this owners lack of customer service when we complained to them, but they did nothing to rectify the issue. You would think the business owners of these establishments would want to make customers happy, but apparently if your not happy with the food don’t plan on a refund, credit or even a re-delivery because it’s not going to happen!

Take my advice and stay away from Uncle Chubby’s and GrubHub, they are not about providing good service or good food!

 

Verizon and the Municipal Construction Fee

download

New York State Verizon customers under contract for Verizon Double Play, have had there bills continue to increase even though they are under contract price, due to Verizon charging a surcharge that they claim is a Federal Tax due to VOIP, but this surcharge was denied by the PSC. Yet Verizon has continued to increase the charge to all their 2 year contract holders unfairly. This surcharge continues to rise without any notice or explanation to their customers for the increase.

http://documents.dps.ny.gov/public/Common/ViewDoc.aspx?DocRefId=%7B9C355532-1432-4870-ABC3-375D27565082%7D

Verizon claims that this is a Federal charge mandatory for VOIP customers, and is listed under the Federal Tax part of your bill, but in reality this is a Verizon surcharge not mandatory by the federal government or the PSC, it is only Verizon collecting and increasing this surcharge.

Customers who have two year contracts are shocked when suddenly out of nowwhere their bill increases with this unknown charge. When the customer contacts Verizon, they are told that this charge is out of Verizon’s control, but in reality it’s their surcharge and their way of increasing your contract price.

Explanation of Taxes, Fees

  • Verizon Surcharges and Other Charges and Credits are costs the law allows Verizon to pass on to its customers as a surcharge.
  • This surcharge Verizon claims is to recover a portion of the expenses Verizon incurs for the relocation of its facilities that are in the public rights-of-way to prevent interference with streetrepairs, public construction projects or other activities required for public health, safety or
    convenience.

Why New York State home owners can’t catch a break!

syracuse-logo

When the City can’t make their budget who pays the bill, the Home owner.

When the city tears up the roads with the DPW trucks who pays for the oiling, the Home Owner.

When the State and the County raise property taxes again, and then NY state gives the Home Owner a rebate, who takes it back, the City Common Council.

The Home owner looses every time in NY, because any rebate they were expecting to receive will now be in the form of a higher property tax burden.

http://www.cnycentral.com/news/story.aspx?id=1041056#.U7SFFfldU90

When the Home owner is late on their water bill after the first of the year, the City will call this arrears and place a small portion of that bill on the home owners property taxes and call it water rent, just to make the home owners escrow payment even higher and to force them into paying the Department of Water on time after the first of the year just to avoid this scam charge. That is the only way this benefits the City because to wait a year for pennies that they could have had now just doesn’t make any sense. Even scammers don’t have it this good.

This is the wonders of being a Home Owner in NY State. You cringe every time your new tax bill is due to arrive, your problems are not with paying the Mortgage payment, but with paying your escrow payment. It’s just like having an adjustable rate payment on a thirty year fixed loan!

New York State places an incredibly high and unfair property tax burden on it’s Home Owners. If your a first time home buyer and you think your getting a good deal because the property here is really cheap, don’t make that purchase, because the entire burden of the State will be coming out of your pocket, and all you will have left is your home.

If you haven’t received your Property Tax Rebate check yet, contact the New York State Tax Department at (518) 453-8146.

Your money goes away with CashnetUSA

CashnetUSA doesn’t give loans, they ask you to provide money on a card, provide them with the card information, and then they take it, and when you call looking for your loan, then they say they need more money on another card to prove that you can payback the so called loan your never going to receive.

The only person loaning money here, is the consumer who gets ripped off by way of Gift Cards. If this was a reliable company, they would not require you to front money for money, nor would they ask you to purchase gift cards. Never give these fools access to your cash, because your money will go away with cashnetUSA.

eharmony will auto renew for you

If you think your going to find your perfect match, or any hot babes at eharmony, think again. Many relationship seekers have complained about signing up for the service, and instantly turning off the auto renew feature, and then being surprised when their account auto renewed anyway when their service expired.

When the subscriber contacts eharmony, they are told eharmony cannot refund the auto renew charge, even if it’s only been several days since the charge was processed through the subscribers bank account. If the subscriber complains enough, eharmony may offer to decrease the service time and provide a small refund, but If they can refund partial why not all?

eharmony is looking to get something for nothing, and that is considered fraudulent practices. They purposely make it hard for their subscribers to cancel their subscriptions, and to take their accounts off auto-renew. eharmony provides no payment notifications, in the hopes that the charges will be overlooked, and if they aren’t, by the time of contact eharmony.com can just tell it’s subscriber it’s to late “No Refunds“.

Instead of finding a relationship, the only thing these subscribers found was an empty bank account. Even eharmony.com‘s free communication weekend is false. Why would you want to communicate with someone over the internet, when you can’t even view their entire profile, because nothing is really free at eharmony!
