My dear friend, Lee works in the educational field and writes both at Triond and Factoidz. Lee was writing at Triond when I started in the summer of 2007 and we have been good friends almost from the beginnning. Some people you meet online begin to be like family. He is one and Icy and Anne are two more that mean a lot to me. We have truly supported one another in our passion for writing, since the beginning, and our efforts to make money at it. I have always felt that I could count on them.
My friend, Lee, in an effort to branch out has been reviewing sites that allow one to host their own site to help authors and photographers market their content. This site would be one where they could write a paragraph or two about their current work and post a link and we could all support one another. In reading up on a particularly promising site called Arsidian Lee thought he had found the ideal place. A few others just did not seem to offer what he wanted. This one promised lifetime support and a 30 day money back guarantee. After using paypal to purchase the script for $80.00 and working on it nearly around the clock for two days, he found it be corrupt. The site would not open and support turned deaf ears on his requests for help. All it displayed was an error page.
He contacted Paypal and they stated that if Arsidian did not want to work with him they would consider the matter resolved.
1. How do we help our friends when they have been burned?
2. Have you ever been cheated online and been able to resolve the issue?
