"VBuzzer's (Softroute) deceptive marketing practices"

August 31, 2010  |  By iceman678

 |  Version: Vbuzzer Messenger 2.5.284 beta

Pros

Absolutely nothing about this company is praiseworthy. They are scum and their products reflect this.

Cons

They charged my credit card illegally as well as deceived me on their misleading marketing emails about giving away free $5 of calling. Needless to say, there was nothing free about it.

Summary

They asked for my credit card to prevent people from opening multiple fake account (which seems reasonable at face value) but then charged my card without my knowledge or consent. They then refuse to refund my money on the grounds that I had used the free $5. They say that my account gets auto-recharged with money they put in from my credit card so that I can make more calls. This is supposedly done for the customer's convenience! Isn't that just amazing?! They charged my card without my permission or knowledge and it is supposed to be good and convenient for me. In fact, that is quite a convenient and illegal way for Vbuzzer to generate revenue. There is no way on the VBuzzer site to stop these auto-recharges.
In accordance with the Privacy Act, I requested Vbuzzer to remove my credit card from their servers immediately, which they have not done nor have they replied to my request.

"Complete SCAM... Stole money from me."

July 25, 2010  |  By typicalhero

 |  Version: Vbuzzer Messenger 2.5.284 beta

Pros

Nothing... I don't know what they are, charges appeared on my card from their company, they WILL NOT respond to me or refund my money.

Cons

I will be getting a lawyer and figuring out how they can get away with this.
They banned my email address so now I cannot get a hold of them. Wicked thieves!!!

Summary

SCAM!!! CNET BE AWARE. THIS COMPANY IS A FRAUD AND WILL BE CHARGED WITH IT. SPREAD THE WORD, BE CAREFUL!
Now my fight begins to get back the money they stole from me.

"Be careful before giving them your credit card details"

May 30, 2010  |  By jsebastian_sa

 |  Version: Vbuzzer Messenger 2.5.284 beta

Pros

None worth mentioning

Cons

these guys cannot be trusted

Summary

Whatever you do, don?t opt for the monthly plan ? the only way you can do this is by authorizing an automatic recharge on a monthly or bi-monthly basis. When you sign up they tell you that you can cancel the plan when you want. But when you actually get around to doing it there is nothing more difficult. I had to try to contact them repeatedly by email and after taking their sweet time with it they dropped the bombshell ?this is an annual contract and you cant cancel it ? if you really want to cancel there is a cancellation charge of 39.99!?

Honestly I went through the terms a couple of times before subscribing and nowhere had they mentioned anything like this. I am sceptical of companies as it is but I never expected barefaced fraud like this from a seemingly reputable company. Desperate times perhaps but totally unethical/ illegal in my view.

My credit card issuing bank was nice enough to block them from endless recharges but they had to issue a new card to do this, totally needless expense for the bank. Apparently this was not the first time they had such a complaint.

My sincere advice is not to touch them with a barge pole.

 |  Version: Vbuzzer Messenger 2.5.284 beta

Pros

when it works it is cost effecive fax software.

Cons

No windows7 seven version, I've heard it coming last time they said two more weeks, it's going on a month.

Summary

It does what it says it will do, gotta watch prices as mentioned in the other reviews.

I'd be happy if they'd update the version...
