I am confused. I just received information about the sweepstakes clearinghouse by mail and i would like to order the RCA Stereo System, but now i am worried after reading the complaints.

I wanted to call ahead but cannot find a customer service number anywhere on the information if received. Please someone send me a number. I don't want to send money if there is no way of contacting them.

There are too many scams out there to be just sending money without the proper information given in the packetts that they send out. I HAVE to know what's going on BEFORE any money changes hands.

Monetary Loss: $170.

Sweepstakes clearinghouse S&H prices are out the roof.

DO NOT order from these people unless you like paying $250(give or take a few dollars) S&H for each item shipped.

Like another writer here, I've purchased several items from the company, and have never had a problem. I bought a laptop that was refurbished, but anyone who READ THE AD would have known this.

It still works great 5 years later.

I've priced several items from the brochures, and almost without exception the vouchers DO save you $200.

As far as contacting SC for product information, please remember it is a promotional company, NOT a retailer.

As for the $250 shipping, I've never heard of such a thing. I bought a memory foam mattress and the shipping is $35.

Please forgive. I did post a link to the Better Business Bureau in Dallas TX.

I did not mean to break a rule..

only wanted to site my reference for the contact info I found on sweepstakes clearinghouse. The Pots and Pans are a decent value although maybe not worth $489.95 NRR except at Macy's and other HIGH dollar stores.

I would also like to add that the QVC shopping channel and HSN both have money back guarantees,and they send you a return label to return any merchandise,even if you just change your mind,or it's not the color you really want,etc. They have a 90 day guarantee,and you can return anything you purchase now,all the way till January. :)

8) If you want to get quality merchandise,it would be better to order from QVC Shopping channel,or HSN. I personally have ordered from HSN.

I got a great deal on a Lexmark printer,and about $60 worth of software was included. The products are brand new,and at least you can see from the demonstrations on TV,exactly how a product works.They have a flex payment plan,and you get the item sent to you after you make the first payment. A lot of items have free shipping,and they also have a lot of mark downs & special sales.I also got this letter in the mail,and It may very well be a scam.If you pay by bank/credit card,Boom! Now they have access to your account!

Later on they can come back and charge anything they want to.They must have gotten my address from the internet,as I don't usually get any mail here. I always have mail sent to my P.O.Box. They might be connected with Publishers Clearing House,as I just starting receiving mail here from them too. There was another scam going around,"Blue Hippo"and there was an article in the Seniors Weekly paper warning people not to fall for this scam.Shortly thereafter,Blue Hippo changed their name.

They also wanted you to "Put money down" and what they don't tell you,is that you don't get your merchandise untill it is paid in full.Oh, yeah ... You Have to have an active checking account. Remember...these people are rich enough from all the scamming they do,and they can well afford to launch ads that look legit. The two shopping channels I mentioned are through the Brighthouse network.

I hope this helps! From experience comes knowledge ;) Don't Ever send money through the mail,unless you know Exactly what you are getting.

Just knowing that they are willing to *** $400,tells you that they also get the items cheap! They use the phrase "famous Name brands" but they don't really tell you which one you will get.

I'M ENJOYING MY STERIO OAK SYSTEM. I HAVE IT IN MY BEDROOM, IT IS BY RCA.

I AM MORE THAN PLEASED WITH THIS PRODUCT. IT HAS SURROUND SOUND. I PUT ON BARRY WHITE'S DVD AND WOW! EVERYBODY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS AT MY HOUSE TO PARTY!

THE SHIPPING IS INCLUDED FREE OF CHARGE. IT TOOK ABOUT A WEEK. I HAD A PROBLEM PUTTING THE WOODEN PANELS TOGETHER. MAKE SURE YOU TAP THE HOLES BEFORE USING THE HEX KEY TO SCREW IN THE NAILS.

IT'S STILL GOING STRONG. I JUST ORDERED MY LAPTOP COMPUTER. I CHECKED AROUND AT RADIO SHACK, TARGET AND OFFICE DEPOT; THERE STARTING PRICE IS WELL ABOVE $550.00. I WANT A FLAT SCREEN HDTV WITH THE DVD PLAYER ON THE SIDE SO THE WOMEN CAN SPEND THE NIGHT DURING THE WINTER TIME AND WE CAN CUDDLE UNDER MY BRAND NEW COMFORTER AND WATCH SAMUEL l.

JACKSON TOGETHER!

COOL MAN COOL!!! :grin :grin

Wow...they told me $60.00.....they came with 2 boxes that UPS was able to carry in one trip with two hands - pots and pans would probably weigh more than lifting with one hand! The shipment was refused....but now I'm thinking I'm out that money!

:cry Anyone know if I can get the money back??

So *** of me!! I know better too!!!

Okay, the customer service phone number is 1-214-915-7100. You have to let it cycle through the recording like four times.

Do not press "1" for a touchtone phone and it goes to a representative. I have gotten the cookware and it is wonderful. I paid it off on time. Do NOT Try to pay the balance off over the phone by credit card!!!

I have called two days in a row, and they tell me it is declined for

"restraint"/ some name they must have invented since I have never heard it before. Plus the card was used successfully somewhere local last night!!! Good luck to one and all... ps.

if you receive a statement, that info is listed on the reverse side. KW
