Q: Who are you, and why did you start this site?
A: I'm not going to tell you who I am. Suffice it to say, I am someone
who, IN MY
OPINION, was wronged by Traffic Power. They know who I am. This site is my answer to
Traffic Power's unwillingness to refund money which was,
OPINION, taken from
me under false pretenses. Most of the emails I've received from others tell a
similar story, but I do receive some rabid Traffic Power supporters threatening
me, and I'd rather they didn't know where I live.
Q: I've lost money to Traffic Power/My site was just
banned from Google. Can you help me?
A: If I knew the secret of how to get your money back from Traffic Power,
I would have never started this website in the first place. As for the Google
bannings, it is hard to say 100% whether a site was banned because of Traffic
Power, or some other thing the site owner has done. Even if I were to prove that
your site was banned because of Traffic Power, as far as I know the only thing
to do is re-submit it to Google after fixing whatever got it banned in the first
Q: Has anyone from Traffic Power contacted you?
A: I've received a few emails from people at Traffic Power. One
"Sales Manager" told me my site was garbage and I didn't know what I was talking
about. When I emailed her back so she could point out exactly what was wrong on
my site, she told me my "list of blacklisted websites is wrong". When I
mentioned that I didn't have a list of blacklisted website, in fact (until this
page) I had never even mentioned the word "blacklisted", she never emailed me
I also had a call
from them, my caller ID said Traffic Power. I didn't answer it, I know better.
Rule number one: Never talk on the phone to anyone from
Traffic Power! IN MY
OPINION this is what got me in trouble in the first place, I was
guaranteed things on the phone, and when I called them on it, their answer was,
"If it isn't in writing, it doesn't count". I received an email about 10 minutes
later from someone telling me he was trying to contact me "in regards to an
email" he had received. I emailed him back and told him I would only talk to him
via email, as I had to have everything in writing. Guess what: He never emailed
me back either. Note: I still have this email, with full
headers, which can be traced to prove that it was an actual email from Traffic
Q: What do you want from Traffic Power?
A: That's easy. I WANT MY MONEY BACK. Period. End of story. Not one penny
less of the $4001.00 I spent. When that money is in my bank, I will wash my
hands of this mess and never think of them again. I told them about 9 months
ago, when one of my first credit card disputes didn't go through (I think I did
6 total, I lost every one) that if I didn't get my money back I would cost them
a lot more than I had lost. I even gave that to them in writing. Guess they
didn't believe me. So far it has cost them at least $37,000.00 (as of 6/28/04),
check HERE to see if the total has changed.
Q: What can we do?
A: Again, I don't know how to get your money back from Traffic Power. One
thing you can do is to sign up for the potential Class Action Lawsuit against
them, if you would like to be included, just email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Another thing is to possibly complain to Google, I don't know if it
will do any good, but it can't hurt. If anyone knows how to get in touch with
some of the higher ups at Google, email me the information,
and I will do what I can.
Any more questions?
