    Default New break throu in e-cig technolog.... scams.

    Got the following emai:

    Good morning,

    You've been pre-qualified for a brand new e-cig model
    from BigVape . These new models can last up to 20x longer
    than other e-cig brands..You can go here to get more
    information about how you can get a risk free trial.

    - New redesigned e-cig model ($75+ in stores)

    - #1 rated tasting e-liquid. Rechargeable and refillable.

    - Limited trials are available. See the Vapex homepage for details.

    Enjoy,

    Try E-Cig Now


    Had to laugh my asz off, checked it out and it was an ego style battery and a 650mha ego battery at that, with a clearomizer and ego case, and the usual usb charger. What was extremely funny was that the tanks held up to the equivalent of 4 packs of smokes. Had all sorts of claim, they even have the best tasting cigarette e-juice known to man kind or something like that.

    Tried to find their web site, mainly found links to there free sample, shipping only bla blaa blaaa. Where sure it's free for 15 days, then if not returned they charge your account $75 or some such.

    Ooohh break through in electric cigarette technology, And they show me a single fracking 650mha ego and cheap plastic clearomizer. Made me laugh so hard just had to share.

    There's idiots out there in abundance. They are the ones giving ecigs a bad rap.

    Unfortunately, these unethical scam artists just hurt the vaping community when we already have enough battles to fight. They prey on the uninformed and desperate.

    You should break the links to the webpage.

    They don't deserve the benefit of ECF's Google Foo.

    Vapers Blessing: May your batteries be fully charged, your atomizer full of great liquid, your coils wrapped to the sweet spot and your vapor clouds be big, bright and beautiful.

    That type of scam been goin' on for a long time.

    Rule of thumb:
    There ain't no free lunch. Anytime someone wants your credit card for a trial offer, free sample, free device, free ANYTHING over the internet, you should beware. Applies not only to ecigs, but to ANYTHING. Whenever it seems too good to be true, it probably is, and you should read the fine print very carefully! Always be prepared to take it up with your credit card company to dispute charges and stop future charges. DO NOT USE A DEBIT CARD FOR ANY ONLINE ANYTHING!

    I almost got suckered with "Victory" ecigs. Had placed the order, gotten initial set up. Had just joined ECF. OMG. Shot off an email to them, typical delay in reply, "oh this is an auto shipment, blah, blah, blah, the conditions are there in you initial shipment". So I shot off another email claiming to be a "reviewer for an internet e-cig site".....Bawahahahaha!!! Talk about some real quick back peddling and a credit back to my credit card!
    LESSON LEARNED! I was just fortunate to get my money back!

    My next door neighbor fell for one of those scams. His scam was charging him a subscription for monthly cartomizers or some such bunk after sending him his "free" ecig. I guess technically the ecig was free. He should have read the fine print.
