TIME & GEMS, TIMEANDGEMS.COM, WATCH EMPIRE LLC – INTERNET FAKE ROLEX SCAM ARTISTS

By John Donovan

Many well known highly desirable global brands are targeted by counterfeit activity.

Because of the high value of each watch, Rolex is a prime target.

Its relatively easy to spot a fake Rolex as they weight much less than a genuine Rolex.

It becomes more tricky if some parts are genuine and others fake.

SHELL KINDLE PR DEBACLE IN GERMANY

Screen Shot 2014-05-03 at 11.03.56Shell Germany had offered a free Kindle e-reader for 999 points to be earned when filling up. But also when buying a chocolate bar of € 1.29, this gave 100 points…. Buying 10 bars of chocolate and you had an e-reader. They ran out of Kindles after 3 hours!!!  Their website collapsed due to 40-fold traffic increase. Big disaster. Many people pissed off.

FROM AN OLD EP HAND

Shell Germany had offered a free Kindle e-reader for 999 points to be earned when filling up. But also when buying a chocolate bar of € 1.29, this gave 100 points…. Buying 10 bars of chocolate and you had an e-reader. There were ‘only’ 10.000 e-readers so they soon ran out, Germans are not crazy and can calculate. Now many disgusted customers.  Shell offered excuses to customers.

Good idea, not thought through and blind to an error of giving many points for a chocolate bar.

Big disaster. Many people pissed off. If only Shell would admit they screwed up people would understand. Now lot of wishy washy language. read more
