Useless Links

And then the ones we suggest you steer clear of:

Plum: Bad South African classifieds site

We do not recommend plum.co.za ("Buy and Sell Online: Africa's new and used online marketplace") who give bad service and deliberately waste your time.

Warning: Do Not Advertise on Webmail!

Webmail, also called Interface Media, will badger you constantly for an appointment, which they seldom keep.  They do not honour requests to remove you from their list, as they are hopelessly inefficient.  They offer paid advertising on the Webmail free e-mail site.  Unlike Google, they charge "per impression" and not per click, which means they are perfectly happy to take your money (in our case, two payments in excess of the amount in the contract!) and for you to get no traffic as a result.  When asked for repayment of the excess their head of Accounts becomes abusive.  The statistics they produce are unreliable if not fraudulent, for example they ran 0 impressions of a campaign for us, but nevertheless claim to have generated 11 clicks!  They can not explain this, but nevertheless claim to produce "audited statistics".  Look on Hello Peter and you will see an endless list of complaints about Webmail.
