The City of Salem, in Oregon, is charging for service to its property owners that they know they do not provide, and some of those charges are monstrous. The City of Salem is legally responsible for raising taxes for “general services” that they provide. City fees, on the other hand, must be charged for specific services and only those services. These are more like user fees.

The Chinese government has prolonged several times the holidays to make people stay at home as long as possible. Face masks are recommended as a simple prevention when in public. However, the months-long duration of this outbreak has resulted in an enormous shortage of medical materials across China for the citizens and hospitals.

The amount of fake review consumer fraud on Amazon is massive and shocking. The truth is, no single company benefits more from this massive fraud than Amazon.com. The Jeff Bezos company doesn’t use their monopoly powers in the traditional way to create higher prices. Instead, they knowingly choose more unscrupulous ways to advance their dominate market position, but always using their size and reach to ensure other companies in the marketplace are forced to react to their leadership.
We’ve all seen the Old West movies and TV shows in which a well dressed gentleman rides into town plying his wares and touting a “Miracle Cure” elixir guaranteed to relieve all health maladies. Invariably, the tincture is nothing more than cheap, watered-down whiskey mixed with something sugary to make the “medicine” go down easier. In the long run, the only benefit is a rip-roaring drunken night, followed by a massive hangover.
After gaining one of the highest levels of public trust, and producing one of America’s worst ethical and financial failures, Jon Corzine is back working with client’s money again.
When I was growing up, I believed America was fair and honest and if you worked hard you could move ahead– and those who get caught cheating will pay a price. Well, now it appears you can get caught cheating, be in charge while over $800 million dollars of client’s money is lost forever, but if you’re well connected you’ll be back in business with a new hedge fund in a just few years. What a country!
We went through the reviews of Wewgo Ball Bearing 608-2RS and they had an incredible rating of 4.4 stars by Amazon. For this very high rating they were awarded an Amazon Choice Badge.
Having 4.4 stars made everything about this product look great, but there’s one major issue: The reviews were bought. Worst yet, over 70% of the total reviews for the Wewgo Ball Bearing 608-2RS were fake. Wewgo is another cheater! It appears everything about Wewgo was set up from day one to be a consumer scam, more on that later. Wewgo never deserved the Amazon Choice Badge. We’ve asked Amazon publicly to remove fake advertisers /reviews from their platform but after many complaints about Ebanel (so far the most successful at being a serial perpetrator of consumer fraud), they haven’t even removed the Amazon verified fake reviews or Amazon’s Choice Badge!
