    Default BEWARE: BOGUS SPEEDLABs Web Site

    I happen to be searching and surfing this evening and came across a site entitled:

    "www.speedlabs.net"

    I checked the domain registration and it appears to be registered to a Texas-based organization.

    This is not to be confused with Carl Fors' legitimate site Speed Measurement Labs which too is located in Texas [Forth Worth] and performs its testing in the greater El Paso region of Texas!

    On this similarly named site, RMR products abound plenty!

    Be so advised...

    In the meantime, I am going to suggest to Roy that he create a new forum category entitled "Scams -Caveat Emptor" to cover topics that fall under this category. ops:

    The Veil Guy 8)
    ALERT: Purchase the latest Veil G5 Direct from the Manufacturer or from one of our Authorized Dealers at the Veil Store.

    Stay informed with the latest industry news and product reviews Veil Guy's Radar Detector Reviews.

    Experience real-world encounters as they actually happened on the open road, from the pioneer of this bonafide real-world testing format. Visit Veil Guy's radar detector videos.

    If I were running a business web site, I'd register the common top level domain versions (com, net, org, biz) to avoid this very thing. There's a process you can go through to get an infringing party off, but in the words of Barney Fife, it's better to "nip it in the bud. NIP IT!"

    Underhanded business practices and RMR together on the same site.

    Imagine my surprise.

    I'd really like to know the universities that test their products.

    Also, that site really looks like it was made by someone 14 year old with a geocities account...

    Ha ha! Yes it does. Also the old Angel Fire...which may have been part of Geocities...I can't recall.

    Notice the free template sticker bottom right? ;-)

    Default By the way...

    When does registering a product void your return policy?

    Since buying it from RMR!

    From their site:

    Return Policy
    Restocking fees apply to all returned orders. No returns accepted after 30 days of delivery. All returned merchandise must be in original, non-damaged packaging, with all original packaging, manuals, and registration cards; otherwise they will not be accepted. Registration with the manufacturer will void the return policy.
