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

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.

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.

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!

Buy Kenmore get less

Whatever you do at Sears, don’t run into a Kenmore Appliance. Kenmore appliances may look like a great buy when their on sale compared to the competitors, but Kenmore’s parts are cheaply made, and without Sears pricey service plan, your screwed when something goes wrong. Now after spending all that money to replace an old appliance that worked great, you are left with a newer appliance with constant issues.

There should be more than a one year limited warranty on an expensive appliance such as Kenmore Refrigerator’s. Sears wants you to purchase their warranty plan, so instead of standing behind the Kenmore product you are purchasing from them, Kenmore makes their warranty so barley there, that if you don’t pay for the Sears warranty plan, Kenmore’s cheap parts are bound to stop working as soon as that limited warranty expires.

American Residential Warranty, your claim is Denied!

American Residential Home Warranty, also know as ARW makes claims in their commercial that their warranty coverage gives the Home Owner peace of mind, but once something happens and you call them with a claim, there is always some reason that your claim is denied. The Home Owner is left to worry, and repair items and parts that ARW claims are not covered under their Warranty policy.

Consumers have complained about not receiving the policy, or list of items covered and not covered. Then when they go to make a claim suddenly this list is available. ARW also is the one to place the work order for the repairs and you must use the company of their choice. You the Home Owner are left to wait and wonder about who’s coming to service your needed repair.

This type of warranty is really not worth it. With the price of the ARW policy, and all the non covered parts and claim denials, it’s only more of a headache for the Home Owner than its worth. Always investigate and research a company and their complaints before purchase, only then will you have peace of mind.
