If it is too good to be truth.... e-neighborhoods = scam!!!

Real Estate Agent with Weichert Realtors

Hy, in my first blog I would like to make a short reference about the challenges in today's market and the tools available to succeed. I would like to recomend Everybody Must stay away of the E-Neighborhood System... and I say so, because I've signed with then for the "Tryal" offer and now I've been hit with a fee that I'm trying to get back to my bank; but they're ignoring my messages... I learn about this offer through the REALTOR magazine and that's how I trust then. But, it's very bad and customer service very unprofessional and lack of attention.

I experience a couple of problem with some of the tools and I called and sent e-mails to tech support, but, they never get me an answer why it wasn't working; now I'm not interested on it, I canceled the service (during the tryal period), but they still bill my back card and I facing a lot of problem with this situation... that's why I recomending everybody to stay away from them!!.... that's a scam!

Juan, Thanks for the heads up.  That is why I joined Active Rain, to see how others in our industry are doing.

I had a similar problem once.  I had signed up for a service that ran banner ads on various web sites, as well as a directory listing.  After a year of doing it, I had not gotten a single lead from this company and wrote them a letter to not renew my contract (you've got to be careful with these things that auto renew).

Anyway, they continued to debit my account (two times taking it below my minimum balance and causing me to incur a fee).  I wrote them again and I called my bank.  It took almost 4 cycles of this before I got it stopped.

Now I don't allow any direct debits from my accounts.

Thanks for the heads up.  You can protest the bill with your credit card company.  The better business bureau might also help.

Those guys have been doing that for years.  They also at one point said it wasn't a trial -- and that one was, too.

Thanks very much for your feedbacks; I already open a case with the BBB and I'm trying to get my bank not to pay for this transaction... and my intention here is to prevent any other agent to get on the catch with this people, because there are lots of problems like that and here we can be aware by letting everybody know about them... once more, thanks very much!
