    Below is a complaint letter I just sent to creamfilledholes.com. I am posting this in the hopes that I might spare a few people from wasting their money on a trial membership at this site. I'll let you know how this gets resolved if and when they respond.

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    I just purchased a trial membership to www.creamfilledholes.com. I was
    very disappointed to learn that the "trial membership" to
    www.creamfilledholes.com is not a genuine membership to the site. With
    the trial membership, I was unable to view access any of the site's
    content (i.e., videos and full sized pictures). I was only able to see
    small thumbnail "previews" of the content contained in the genuine
    member's section.

    Neither the sign-up page for the trial membership nor the Terms and
    Conditions page make it clear that one does not actually get access to
    the site's content with a trial membership. I believe that this is
    deceptive and misleading, and as a result I paid $4.87 for,
    essentially, nothing.

    Therefore, I am requesting a refund of the $4.87 I paid for trial
    membership to www.creamfilledholes.com. Thank you for your prompt
    attention to this matter.

    Alot of websites unfortunately have this type of "trial membership" that ends up just being another preview page.
    :( It happened to me once, but never again.

    Some websites actually do have trial memberships, but you definitely need to know what to look out for.

    This has never happened to me before, so it was quite a surprise. Any other time I've signed up for a trial membership, I got full access to the site in question.

    Anyway, I have good news. They did refund me. I have to admit that I'm surprised. I expected them to ignore me or to fight me but they didn't.

    I went to the join page and saw this:

    I guess when they say limited they mean "just a tad bit more than you could see for free". I've never heard of a site offering such a limited trial membership. As always; buyer beware.

    Yeah, in the small print, of course. I'm not 100% certain, but I don't think that statement was there yesterday. I deliberately went in search of any such disclaimer before sending my complaint letter.

    Actually, what was on the trial membership page was less than what you could see for free, which is part of the reason I was so angry. At least on the free section you can see some hot preview videos, which is why I was interested in joining the site in the first place. Now, as a result of them trying to cheat me with their crappy trial, I didn't buy a full month's membership, and I'm warning people away from the site.

    I've got to say, I think it's really monumentally stupid of the administrators of this site to rip off people in this way. If they'd given me a normal trial membership and I liked what I saw, I might have stuck around for a full month. If they don't want to give full access to the site, then at least they could have given access to a couple of the videos, or have offered the videos in a smaller size (not too small). But if they do something non-standard like that, they need to be upfront about it. I wouldn't have been mad or felt cheated if I had known what I was getting, and I would probably still buy the trial membership as long as I was getting something more substantial than what was on the free page. Then if I had liked what I saw in the trial, I might have purchased a full membership. If I didn't like it, I would have cancelled my trial, but I wouldn't have felt cheated, and the site would still have made a couple of bucks.

    Maybe I'm different. Maybe most people don't stand up for themselves and the site makes good money off these "trial membership" fees. Or maybe they succeed in tricking people into buying the full membership, and they make even better money. In any case, I think their business practices are unethical. Their vague, small print warning does not justify or legitimize what they do, and just because they sell porn doesn't mean they shouldn't have ethical business practices.

    End of rant.
