You may or may not receive e-mail messages from others (other consumers, businesses, etc.) due to posting your message on ShamScam.com. We never share your email address!
As a user of ShamScam.com, you acknowledge that ShamScam.com does not prescreen or edit posted complaints. You alone are responsible for the content of your messages, and the consequences of any such messages.
When messages have been posted to ShamScam.com they are made available for public view, and made available for indexing and reproduction by third-party search engines and directories. ShamScam.com has no control over the content taken from ShamScam.com by third-party sites.

ShamScam.com does not knowingly allow incorrect or factually incorrect information to remain posted. If ShamScam.com is instructed to remove and delete a posted message by a court, then the message will be removed and deleted.
If at any point you as a user of ShamScam.com posts or attempts to post anything including but not limited to spam or advertisements your post will not be approved.

Many complaints posted to ShamScam.com are an historical 'snapshot' of an ongoing situation, as seen through the eyes and perception of an individual consumer, often with incomplete or inaccurate information at their disposal.
ShamScam.com always assumes that the consumer has a positive intent in writing their message, in helping themselves, in helping other consumers, in helping the subject business provide a better product or service.
A complaint listed is assumed by ShamScam.com to be a description of a situation experienced by a consumer. A complaint is only a personal opinion by a consumer, a perception of a consumer. That personal perception and/or opinion based on their own personal experience can be powerful, or meaningless, in the opinion of ShamScam.com, depending upon the context and content of what is written. And how that information is interpreted by whomever reads it. Which of course varies from person to person, depending on whom they are, their own personal experiences, biases, opinions, etc.
No conclusions are drawn by ShamScam.com, as to content validity. ShamScam.com does not edit or censor posted messages or investigate them for accuracy.
Posted messages should describe a personal, firsthand experience. If a person experienced something personally, that person owns that information about their perception of, and opinion about, that personal experience, and is free to discuss their opinion about that experience, as a human, citizen, and legal entity, unless previously, already contractually bound otherwise.
It is the responsibility of a message author to make sure they are not contractually bound otherwise. It is the responsibility of this message author to determine on their own if they are not allowed to discuss the subject of their complaint, if this is the case, prior to posting a message to ShamScam.com.
If this ShamScam.com site user is contractually bound not to discuss a subject, that message author takes it upon their own risk if they post a message to ShamScam.com about that subject, because that message will be posted on ShamScam.com for public view.
The messages posted to ShamScam.com are only the opinions of consumers and businesses and other site users. The complaints do not represent the opinions of ShamScam.com.
ShamScam.com is only a platform for consumers to post complaints; ShamScam.com does not lookup or provide e-mail addresses for the subject businesses.
ShamScam.com is not responsible for helping consumers resolve their complaints. ShamScam is only a tool that consumers can use to try to help them.
By submitting a complaint, you grant the owner of this site, ShamScam.com, the irrevocable, transferable, worldwide right to use, reproduce, and display any such information for any purpose commercial or otherwise without compensation to any party.
