FaadVIP - Was having issues with this site but now all fixed

I thought FaadVIP.com was a good idea, and bought the first game they listed. I never got credit for it, and now they are ignoring my emails. It looks like a bunch of other people aren't getting credit as well.

Avoid them.


*EDIT

I was having problems with FaadVIP with not getting credited properly, and not getting my support emails answered. Apparently they were backlogged and now all my problems have been solved. Thank you Joe

I can agree with the broken part of that. I got an email a half hour ago that a new FREE offer was available. I go to the site immediately after getting said email to see that the free offer had been depleted. A quick check of their twitter says they put that one up two days ago.

I followed the instructions and did just like they said and everything worked fine for me. I've got 360 points right now. Not a single thing missed by them. I wouldn't say it's completely broken then, but it could definitely use some work though...

Oh no, the guy who works there who manages the twitter feed jokes around sometimes. He's a normal human being. Anything but that!

This site looks legit because it's bright and colourful. Here is a blank check with my name on it, write any number on this piece of paper and I will pay it.

It's too soon to make a final judgement on FaadVIP. We'll know for sure when people get their gift cards - or not.

Sorry about the bad experience ASFx, the system is brand new so there is some growing pains, but I am not happy that support did not get back to you at all!! I am not the one handling that it's our partner at www.appvip.com in France. The system has been operational in France for over a year and over 40,000 people have enjoyed tonnes of itunes credits. I am going to pm you directly and whoever has a problem should pm me and I'll forward the info to the right folks! and if they don't get it together I am going to kick some major $(*#^#!
