Ameriplan USA | Plano, Texas | Not Recommended

Lately, I have come across several posts from people requesting information on Ameriplan USA (they sell discount dental plans) because they are thinking of joining. Below is my experience with them; it happened about four years ago.

Ameriplan “withheld” my earned commissions using the pretext of a “persistence reward” program, whatever that means.  There is no excuse for not paying you your personally earned commissions, that is what you work for.  I also lost a customer due to bad service.

I wrote two letters regarding the matter (one to each of the owners: Dennis and Daniel Bloom); they never answered. My advice is to stay away from them; it is a network marketing company to avoid.

What is (or was) your experience with Ameriplan USA?

Domains Renewal Group | Scam | Unethical

I just received a letter today (resembling a bill) from Domains Renewal Group. As soon as I read it I knew they were not a reputable company; they don’t host my domain.

Sure enough! I goggled their name and the first five pages (I didn’t have to continue) gave me entries reporting the company as unethical and deceptive. There is no need to write another detailed post regarding their behavior–most of what I read was well explained and documented. But if you get a letter from them (resembling a bill), asking you to renew your domain name for only 30.00 dollars a year, I recommend you to toss it in the garbage and do a google search … or vice versa.

Avoid Identity Theft

Human ignorance shows the most when we take advantage of others; we don’t see that everything is interconnected and that upon hurting others we hurt ourselves. Thieves ignore the fact that their behavior affects society as a whole and therefore themselves; the unrest and distrust they create affects them as much as it affects everyone else … and they also fear theft.

Imagine a city without thieves! You could forget your wallet at the counter of a department store and upon returning you would find it untouched at the lost and found desk. You wouldn’t need locks at the gym or alarms in your car. You would also save money when shopping, for merchants wouldn’t have to raise their price to make up for shoplifting loses. Theft (crime) does not make sense, is the work of the ignorant.

It is interesting to note, however, that ignorant thieves create and develop sophisticated techniques and methods. I came across a video that shows the techniques used to steal the information on credit cards at any automated teller machine. Regretfully, this video is no longer available, but what they do is place a hidden camera that seems to be part of the ATM to steal your information. Be aware!
