This is Why You Don't Buy Shit From WSO – Still Working on Refund for AZ Crusher

by splork on May 29, 2012

I’ve been working for a couple of weeks now on getting my refund from the piece of fucking shit otherwise known as AZ Crusher. I accepted the fact that it WAS NOT a no questions asked refund. I accepted the fact that the first tier support probably DOES NOT speak English anywhere close to 2nd grade proficiency. What I CANNOT accept is telling me that I have been refunded and not have the money returned to my Pay Pal account.

Please explain this. I must be as dense as a hockey puck as I do not understand why the FUCK I would ever need to contact whatever shitface affiliate I purchased this through to obtain a refund.

$18. I wipe my ass with more than $18. The fact that I purchased this WSO, or any WSO, past, present or future, is proof of my profound lack of intelligence in these matters and that infuriates me.

So help me, on the eyes of Jupiter, may I never buy another WSO. I will rip the mustache off any face that buys a WSO and subsequently visits this blog. We are going to conduct ourselves with the utmost of dignity. When you arrive in this hallowed vessel of the unholy web sewage your attire will be of proper formality. A gentleman’s mustache will be the essence of grandeur. A woman’s glove will be the splendor of white. The stench of a greasy WSO has no place in these chambers.

Would you mind to spend your 3 seconds and copy this “honest review” right to the thread of that WSO on warrior forum? You could potentially save some 2 or 3 mustaches of the fellow gentlemen…

Oh Splork…
But haven’t you seen the latest and greatest WSO yet? A vacuum cleaner niche site – complete with videos! As of an hour ago it was only $6.18 – and the price was going up fast! Better hurry! LOL

Can’t remember the last time I bought one – maybe never – so I am proud to be in good company at this “hallowed vessel of the unholy web sewage”.

Good luck with the refund.

Try going thru Paypal’s resolution center. I used to work with company that sold products on ebay and used Paypal for payment processing. Paypal returned the money to the buyer 95% of the time. It was up to the seller to dispute the refund

@Viliam – Sorry. Ain’t going to happen. My AZ Crusher “review” is sitting right among all the bullshit Google listings from flim flam fuckers trying to sell this crap. #7. My vulgar admonishment to try to get people NOT to buy it is flagrantly obvious. I despise Warrior Forum. If I need SEO or website advice I will happily log in to The Keyword Academy and request assistance. The comparison is an insult to TKA.

On a much lighter note – check out the reply I just received from these morons:

“(my PayPay addy removed) is been refunded at end. please check with your affiliate you purchased with.”

WTF? What. The. Fuck.

Can anyone even reasonably tell me what “is been refunded at end” means? Funny stuff.

@Jack – WSO’s are a joke. They have these pretty offers. Nice salespages. Great salescopy.

Then you get the product and they suck ass. The refund can be trying.

Never again. Never.

@Ray – sigh. I sent the maker of this product a PM on WF. Seems he’s gotten used to them by now. We’ll see what happens.

Well, I may be able to shed some lantern light on this heaping pile of crap.
Not a translation of the poor approximation of English, mind you, but on the PROCESS.
A lot of WSO’s (not all, but an unhealthy proportion) are offered to affiliates for 100% commission.
That’s right, the affiliate gets ALL the money. The WSO creator gets the mailing list (as well as the affiliate) to enable them to sell MORE crap to the unwary.
So….the asshat you contacted doesn’t HAVE the money, the affiliate does. The refund would merely result in a transfer of wealth from the creator to the affiliate. Kinda like the tax code….
I’m guessing that’s why they keep telling you to contact the other guy, which, of course, leads to a merry old finger pointing run-around.
Come on, have you ever had this much fun for only 18 bucks?
Huh? Huh?

Hi Splork,

Many WSOs are now sold through one of several services that make affiliate promotion easy.

A lot of offers pay 100% of the front end sale to the affiliate, and the merchant builds their list, makes money on a backend offer, or both.

So it could really be that 100% of what you paid went to an affiliate’s Paypal account, and not the merchant’s.

@Ted – yea I’m done. The $18 is not a big deal. The principal of ill-conceived affiliate and outsourcing asshattery pisses me off.

@JH – Awful way of doing business. You have no idea who to ask for a refund.

Here’s an update on my similar experience (re) my purchase of (and refund request for) Alex Jeffrey’s “$1 Million in 21 Days”. (You can see my comment in LBiHW
http://lostballinhighweeds.com/dont-fucking-buy-az-crusher-i-did-and-it-sucks/
I got a similar message from the original seller, “Please contact the affiliate blah blah blah”. I, too, had no idea who the affiliate was until I looked back at the PayPal receipt for the purchase which announced “You sent a payment of $11.00 USD to [affiliate's name appeared here]“. I looked back in my email archive trying to remember who the hell this person was. Turns out it was someone I had gotten a “free” item from at a JV Giveaway event (and given her my email in exchange, of course, since that’s the point of JV Giveaways). I subsequently got an email pitch for the aforementioned WSO which I [stupidly] purchased.

Whew. What a runaround. I eventually got a refund from the affiliate, but only after I bugged Alex Jeffrey’s customer service ticket system and the affiliate’s support ticket system about 6 times each.

[right hand raised] “I Solemnly Swear That I Will NEVER Visit The Warrior Forum, Let Alone Even READ a WSO Pitch, Ever Again So Help Me Hunter S. Thompson. May Others Benefit From My Experience of This Pestilence. Selah.”

@Robert – I checked but I can’t figure out who the affiliate is. This alone is enough to completely cure my ass from ever buying another WSO. Fuck all you WSO pimps.

Saga is over. Refund secured in PayPal account.

Glad to put this in my wake.

The problem with this purchase was I actually bought it expecting a result. I hated the product. It made for a good couple of posts though. That is the problem with vowing never to steer my web sewage vessel into the stench of the WSO. I may never have such wonderful slime to write about.

Splork,

I have a way that you can get all the money back and a zillion more to boot. There is a new WSO waiting for your greed frickin hands…Azon Affiliate Destruction. It’s only $12. That 30% less money and it comes with email support!!

“Ryan has gone to town with this Azon Affiliate Destruction Amazon Niche Course as it’s easy to follow with action steps but even the One Time Offer is Amazing and a total no brainer.
This is a complete course, coming in 10 modules and covers everything…”

It’s like buying a lotto ticket. You have less than .00000000000001% chance of winning. Send me $6 for talking you out of buying more garbage.

Your best posts come when you do stupid things. Buy more trash and sewage to gain a higher PR.

Hmmm, a WSO that explains how to get a refund for a WSO, now that’s got legs…

Hey Splork,

I normall don’t buy diddly as a WSO, but I did buy the Pinterest attraction plugin, mainly because it was recommended by Andy Baily (CommentLuv). I also picked up Andy’s $47 Azon (Amazon) theme for free at the same time. Okay, so I’m out about $40 (I went for the OTO), but I’m using it on 3 sites so far.

I probably could have went the free plugin at WordPress, but I like getting answers to my questions.

@make money – I moved all my sites to Affilorama free hosting as a member. I’ve been a premium member since ’06. As a member of Affilorama Premium and AffiloBlueprint I get a limited number of sites hosted, which at this time is plenty enough for what I hope to accomplish.
