Default This is B.S

Alright, so I have a friend of a friend who works for a company called;

https://www.referdia.com/

-

Now he asked if he could get me to sign up, so I assumed it was one of those sites like http://www.tuugo.ca/ that put your information in a directory, except this company 'referdia' actually asks permission.

Unfortunately, that's not the case.

I agreed to this friend of mine and made an account, figured he'd get some sort of commission and that'll be that. Yet, he now has been bothering me to phone him so he can confirm things with me, which makes me feel like somewhere I might end up having to pay for something.

I'm angry.

I went to the site, logged in so I can deactivate my account, this is what I see when I log in;

THANK YOu... really?

Skip to 50 seconds, and listen to this crap. They want to charge us? LOL, in their dreams. Losers.

In short, my friend can go to hell.



ALSOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

How come they have two names? Refferdia and Daily Referral? wtf? lol

i always get a crack out of those companies. the funniest part is more often then not if it even leads you to a legitimate job that the people you would be working for are the worst type to work for there is.

anyone who would leave their info with a company to broadcast out to the world that they are need of a particular service are usually the type that ask 15 million needless questions to portray they know what they are talking about, have too many demands, have unrealistic expectations and on top of that they want it done for the cheapest price ever.

i like to screw with them and tell them that i have so much work coming in that i am turning people away, so why would i want you to bring me more people to turn away? and after a moment of deafening awkward silence, OK, sir, you have yorself a nice day.
and then i never hear from them again.

LOL can you mess with them and come up with a fake business that offers a bizarre service just to see if they will list it?
