As suggested by Sceptre, I've decided to add a sticky for people to discuss what they consider to be a ripoff.
The dictionary defines it as:
1. an act or instance of ripping off another or others; a theft, cheat, or swindle.
2. exploitation, esp. of those who cannot prevent or counter it.
3. a copy or imitation.
4. a person who rips off another or others; thief or swindler.
Someone coming to my door and taking money from me to tar my drive but then not doing it is, in my mind, not a ripoff. It would be a scam. Something illegal.
What this forum is for is to discuss when consumers have been ripped off because of high prices. Ripoff Ireland forum was started to discuss the rediculously hihg prices of goods and services in Ireland compared to our European neighbours and mainly came about because of our change to Euro and the fact it was easier to see the price differences.
Please feel free to discuss what you think should be considered a ripoff. Give examples if you wish but please keep them anecdotal and not a moan about something that has just happened to you. You can start your own thread about that.
This thread will be monitored closely so stay on topic and no personal abuse or you get an instant ban for a week!!!
