In a moment of weakness, I fell Victim to purchasing a subscription for something called Ted’s Woodworking (web site here), which promoted that it offered over 16,000 woodworking plans. As a woodworking teacher, I am always on the lookout for pre-made plans of projects that are at a “high-school-level”, and thought this would be awesome.
As soon as I tried to start downloading the plans in the “members” area, I came across problem after problem. Most clicks just re-directed me back to the main page, or a page that had frequently asked questions. I immediately knew that this wasn’t something legit, so tried to file for their “Money Back Guarentee”. Of course, there is no phone number to call, only a digital form to fill out and they promise to get back to you in 3-4 business days. I filed several tickets, and am still waiting to here back from Ted.
I went online and did a little more digging, and found that many people expressed dis-pleasure with this website, and also stumbled upon this article from Feb 10 basically saying that someome hacked their account and is sending out spam emails.
Currently, I am in the middle of filing a dispute with my credit card company, hoping to get out of paying the $80+ that I fell victim to. Granted, I typed in my information (and feel like a horses ass for doing so) so I acknowledge that it is my responsibility, but I do not want anyone else to have to fall victim to this Scam just as I have.
Has anyone else had interaction with this site? If so please feel free to share your experience.
P.S. – I think Ted is a jagoff.
