    Spamfighter=waste of time and money!

    Here is the post I made on

    I tried Spamfighter anti-spam software and found it to be “good enough’ although not be any means great. Since I was too busy to check out many of the competitors, I agreed to buy the software and paid with a VISA card on their website. That’s where the problems began. The site malfunctioned and I wasn’t sure if the transaction went through. a couple of weeks later, I got a terse e-mail with an invoice saying I hadn’t paid, so I went to the website but this time I was told that I couldn’t pay the bill because “the invoice number was not unique”. I sent several e-mails, include a screenshot of the error message, but I got nothing in return but more threatening e-mail. On three more occasions I tried to pay but got the same response and repeated e-mail back to the company went unanswered. Finally, I decided I had enough. The software just isn’t worth the hassle for the few spams it catches.

    Any company that treats customers like that won’t be in business much longer.
