Ruth asks…

What is your opinion of Investools?

I went to a seminar. It was a very nice seminar about how to use Investools and the training available and a brush over what you need to do to be a smart investor using their site. During the presentation, I was led to believe that their software is somehow linked to Yahoo software. I mention this because I have a hard time using the Yahoo Finance from time to time, getting malware or other bugs apparently that freeze up my screen and or mouse and I have to reboot. The portfolio part of Yahoo finance does not sort for me. I am concerned that if Yahoo Finance doesn’t work from time to time, I might expect that Investools might not either. They want $1999 to use their tools and site and train for it. If it works like they say it does, I would see no problem….if it makes way more than or proves itself forward testing with paper trades and then with real money trades. But back testing, people can make many things work. I think they prove the back testing in the seminar.

John answers:

They make it sound like all you need to do is use their software and you will make money. And when you don’t they tell you that you need addtional classes, which are not cheap. Their support is bad. It is not unusuall to wait an hour or more for help. When they are selling you products they get back to you right away, but once you have paid the quick service ends. I wasted twelve thousand dollars with them and I am still trying to pay it off. There are better softwares out there at a much more resonable rate.

CFS (Corporate Financial Services) I Paid $9000, Scam???, Need URGENT ADVICE please help?

I got talked into paying $8900 for a Stock Market Software from CFS, The man conviced me to buy the program (Business cold call) and told me that not one client hasn’t earned 20 grand in a year.. I paid by Visa Debit card. The glossy brochure they had sent me promised results of up to 18% growth per month by day trading on the ASX using their Stock Market software.
I wanted it so bad to be true…
I recieved a User Manuel, A cd containing the software and a folder to hold it in.
I installed the software while the very cunning Customer Service instructed me on the phone.
I began 2 days ago, Paper trading on the program, which is practise and not with real money (Not that I have much left now!) and bought the recommended shares. The program tells you what to buy, and when to sell. Only 2 out of the 10 stocks have gone up. He told me the program had a 83% success rate which i think is total bull.
It obviously doesn’t. I have since found numerous forums warning about CFS and that it is a scam, I might be in denial, but I know i more than likely I won’t get my money back so should i just try invest my miserable $500?
Has anyone heard of this CFS?
If I invest my last $500 in shares like I am suppose to, I have a gut feeling that I will be throwing my money away.. again… But i feel like i should so i didn’t spend all the other money for nothing…..Just in case it works…
But how could I get my money back? Please help me, they won’t give me a refund because i used the program and they just try to re assure me that it works.
I’m 21, my mother gave me the money from inheritance and now I’m too embarassed to tell her the truth where all my money has gone….What do i say??
I’m extremely depressed and can’t stop crying, I feel like an absolute idiot and i really don’t know what to do!! 🙁
Checking with the authorities sounds like a good idea, but I’m in rural Victoria, and I have no idea who i should call?

John answers:

Check with the authorities about this company. You could find out a lot about them. You might be able to get your money back, or at least a portion of it.

John answers:

Call them and find out what their return policy is. Then file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I am not sure if this is a scam as it is merely sales man huffing and puffing which is allowed in the business world.

There are legitimate software out there for investment. If you really think you have been scammed then contact your local consumer affairs hot line and lodge a complaint. Also you can contact your state’s attorney general office and lodge a complaint.

But I don’t think you have been scammed or defrauded. You just bought before you put in your research and since you don’t know how the market works and you are unable to see the rate of return, you have become disillusioned and now are starting to point the finger at somebody else.

It is in man’s nature to point the finger and not accept responsibility. As it has been said : “that woman whom you gave me, gave me the apple.”

Play with it more, eventually you will learn the system.

Ken asks…

Does anyone know where I can get some free CD/DVD label software?

I’m looking out for some software for printing CD/DVD labels.

I am currently using a Expressit V3.1 which works specifically with the label templates provided by Medea Direct. The software, positioning tool and sample label paper was sold to me by Curry’s (aka PC World) under the the PC Line trade name. When I asked if Curry’s could get me some more paper, because I had run out, they said they could not – in fact they were most unhelpful, but that is another story!

There are many suppliers of label paper, and they all have their own template configurations. Suffice to say it is apparent that it looks like you need the dedicated software to produce labels on these individual template layouts.

I was rather hoping that there was some software out there which allowed the user to choose between a variety of templates.

Has anyone had the same problem and can you help me?
So far you have all given me some good connections and links, when I can get round to it I’ll check them all out..

Are you all sure that the software that you are describing allows me to use different label formats?

What I mean by this is, if you check out the position of the perforated circles that are on the label sheet that will be peeled off and stuck to the CD/DVD surface:

a) Are they aligned with each other centrally?

b) Are they offset on the page, (sort of diagonally)?

c) How many to a page – 2 or 3?

It seems that the most common format of label paper that can be purchased actually presents a pattern of one perforated circle vertically aligned or on top of tanother.

Because this is the most common format it is generally the most economic to buy, (i.e. it can be purchased from more than one outlet without having to pay the extra delivery charges imposed when bought on line).

So is this software likely to be able to handle this format? Please check.

John answers:
