Warning : offentlig IT katastrofe in-progress

- skat modtager ikke e-mail siden 2010
- deres web virker ikke på andet end windows (pdf reader afhængighed)
- deres web er ustabil, fuld af uopdateret information, mangler ordentlig navigering og udviser total foragt for brugerens tid
- deres web søgemaskine er defekt (f.eks. afhængig af sammenhængende antal blanktegn)
- de sender stadig trykte postgirokort ud til indbetaing i posthuse og banker

behøver vi fortsætte...? De er sikkert selv meget stolte af den. Men for resten af verden er det desværre 'Kejserens klæder' om igen. Deres webside er jo et åbent frilandsmuseum... Taberne er almindelige borgere, erhvervsliv og velfærdssamfundet.

EFI - fælles inddrivelse er nu forsinket på femte år. Og vi snakker ikke engang om et fejlbehæftet system. Vi snakker om manglende system. Og derfor skal vi allesammen stadig vente > halvt år på tilbagebetalt overskydende skat. HA!

A+++

Billigere end alle andre jeg kunne finde (og jeg kiggede!). God hjemmeside, der fortæller lagebeholdning. Høflig betjening i telefonen. Varieret udvalg. Købte 'heist' klovnemaske & paryk til sønnen, der sammen med et Hennes&M sort jakkesæt så virkelig autentisk ud. Produktbilledet kunne nok være bedre - men det var 'u'bercool latex maske kvalitet.

Man får indtrykket af en virksomhed, der virkelig ønsker tilfredse kunder. Virkelig sjældent at finde i dag.

Tak herfra - og held og lykke med forretningen.

PADI = Puke And DIe

Scumbag SCAM organisation... Lost 300+ euro on a phony ride with them...

Diving is all about trust. And... boy, PADI failed big-time for me - being active part of a SCAM which costed me 360 hard-earned euro without delivering anything except a standard manual worth just 30 euro.

But it was not just the money... Basicly PADI does not set out or require real tangible standards during their certifications. Fx. being certified as 'Open Water Certified Diver' can partly be done in a hotel swimmingpool for that matter - where temperature, visibility and boyance are completely different from confined sea water. Need I say more. PADI doesn't even require an instructor to have a 'plan' for the process (timeplan - committed learning precondition checklist before dive). PADI certainly never looked for a commited plan from the 'scammer' we met, when we discussed personal events occurring.

Reconsider before involving yourself with PADI. They are undisciplined and offer a total lack of real commitment to actually give you anything tabgible. PADI certificate will not prepare you for real diving. Go with another certification.

Fx. PADI exercise no commitment to exercise discipline among the large number of offices, which do certifications. On Malta a _lot_ of PADI offices has opened in recent years. Some honest - others dishonest. My underage son (11 years) experienced a typical tourist scam at one of the PADI certification offices ('look at the birdy.. oops your money is ours now'). Thinking the registered trademark mattered, we tried to contact PADI QA. They ducked behind the legal view, insisting on 'legally independant' office and basicly denying the fact that they in fact are business partners with dealership bindings.

My experience in short... On Malta... 21th July 2012... after payment (360 euro) for OWDC... no certified instructor.. unassisted viewing of all video in one continous marathon session... no check of questions in dive manual.. no dives in water (hotel swimming pool or other..). And PADI's response was.. 'No indication that the business partner has broken PADI standards.'. PADI claimed it wasn't even necessary for a kid to read the manual before being strapped with lead and put in water... as long as he had signed the juridical disclaimer, of cause.

I accept the possibility for a cultural misunderstanding somewhere. Coming from Denmark in Northern Europe, I would expect some rules applied for a safe PADI certifiation. Qualified people... Extra alertness for children.. The need to be familiar with equipment before going into water... But PADI doesn't acknowledge such needs. So I'm forced to conclude that PADI simply shouldn't be allowed to include underage persons in their certification. It's only just barely safe for adults, who know their personal limits.

At the end of the day, my 11 year old son :
* had to read the diving manual as unassisted self-study
* for 5 days, my son never saw a certified instructor doing actual instructing
* never saw water
* had certification cancelled by the SCAM office after only having effective 48 hours with the book to do the self-study.

Oh yes.. my son subsequently went to another (older, established) dive office - paid again - and took the PADI certication without problems.

The PADI organisation is utter trash and waste of time with repetition of the same legal phrases and no commitment to deliver actual value and perhaps exercise some discipline among the large numbers of offices recently opened at popular resort sites. For PADI money is the primary concern... For us not... we decided to pay twice for that matter. But what I care about is reckless people not taking a serious approach to the responsability invested in them - and trademark owners only interested in legal rules and shareholder value.

I look forward to no-good-for-nothing 'Richard' from PADI QA maybe attaching a comment with denial-of-non-denial about their responses in matters discussed. Utter rubbish and nonsense not worth wasting time on.

PADI... Pay A Dollar and Into the bathtub.. to do your 'open water' certification! No standards required.

Trash timewasters...

SCAM on Malta - stay clear...

Are you thinking about taking a PADI dive certification on Malta? Watch out! A LOT of centers have opened in recent years. Some are dishonest. You will need to know how to spot the scammers.

My 11 year old son experienced what could best be described as SCAM.

There was a really unpleasant russian woman at the office, who would occasionally beat her child in our presence and talk very patronizing - after money was paid. We'll remember the arrogant grin on her face for a long time. The manager was never present and it proved impossible to ever setup a meeting with him.

Their back office was used to view the videos. But if you care to notice, it is being stuffed with air cylinders and other rubbish - with people going in and out, making it hard to concentrate on the television. The front office has some really cheap, plastic diving accessories hanging about, trying to pass for a diving center.

The timeline is... 29/07/2012 my son paid 360 euro for PADI OWDC. 30/07/2012 got a book and saw a 5 hour unassisted mathon video in their messy backroom, while people carried air cylinders past him. Subsequently told to do self-study of the first three chapters before doing confined water dive. After 24 hours he came to say he had not finished. When he came back 48 hours later 02/07/2012, he was told by the patronizing woman, "sorry, too late, another person signed up after you and already completed his confined dive. We teach no more teams right now. Your money are ours now. Really sorry" (with an unpleasant grin on her face). Told to return 03/08/2012 at 08.00. Here, after being ignored for the first for 7 minutes being told we could "go out of the office and call the manager from the street". We tried to ask the office to setup a meeting with the manager. "Not possible". We asked to call him from the office. "Not possible". We asked for an office hour window to call him. "Not available". He was... "out swimming". So.. we never got to meet him.

Besides receiving a book, rated at 30-50 euro elsewhere - nobody NEVER-EVER discussed anything actual diving related,
nobody assisted with reading/understanding/doing exercises - or ever took him to water. It was a tourist SCAM in the traditional merry-go-round sense - much like the Monty-Python-dead-parrot sketch. Unhelpfull staff and a manager nowhere to be found - only my son finding himself directed to do anything else than diving.

The office made up some silly excuse about us missing a meeting or dive session, which we _never_ signed up for or was ready for at that point. Our hotel was some 200 meters from the center and for an idle person it would have no problem to visit. Look, we never even got to know the name of a certified instructor anywhere.

One important note. They did exercises in a pool. This was the original reason for my son to go there. Only much later we learned that this is not professional. The temperature and boyance is different from salt water. You don't familiarize yourself with salt coming into eyes, nose and ears. That's why OWDC says "open water...".

So there's only one thing to say about 'Edward Camilleri' business... It's not profesional! Stay clear of him and the offices he runs under different names. Unfortunately my son is underage and cannot hold a VISA. So his money paid in cash was lost (Edward knew that). So another important lession learned on Malta, never let your kid pay the adults. They are easy prey for scammers, who have absolutely no respect for children. As a tourist there is no help to find anywhere on an island, where some people seem to regard scamming tourists as a boasting act.

Realizing and fed up with the merry-go-round streatching for 5 days, my son went over to a REAL dive center (old, established). I paid for him this time (again), and he DID take the PADI OWDC certification.

The bottom line is... Paying good money, which an 11 year old has to work hard for. Got NOTHING for 300+ euroes, when it comes to actual certification. They NEVER-EVER discussed ANYTHING diving related. And they did it to an 11 year old child...

Rotten scammer... Only word for it.

Proshop

Professionel selvom priserne er lave

Har købt fra dem flere gange igennem årene. De har altid leveret pænt indpakket og indenfor rimelig tid. Priserne er yderst rimelige - og forskellen til de allerbilligste er normalt så lille, at det retfærdiggør den øgede sikkerhed for at få det, man bestiller.

Jeg har ikke prøvet at reklamere, så jeg kan desværre ikke udtale mig om den del.

Energi Service

Fup firma!!!

Lad mig sige straks at min relation til firmaet kun har være som kunde. Har ingen personlige relationer til firmaet eller branchen.

Jeg havde en service montør på besøg. Han løste slet ikke problemet. Derimod efterlod han beskidte spor ingennem hele huset. Jeg måtte ringe efter en anden (og endte med at betale 2 gange)

Nu får jeg - et år efter - fup fakturaer for besøg som jeg aldrig har bestilt.

Det firma er en katastrofe. Løser ingen problemer. Generer kun flere problemer i folks liv. Jeg må kæmpe for at komme væk fra dem og de gider ikke engang svare...

Forfærdeligt.

En skam at der ikke findes negative stjerner.

Håber at dette kan hjælpe et andet stakkels menenske med at undgå dette fup firma.
