Order-us.com: Too Many Alarm Bells Going Off!
Okay, let’s be blunt. Clicking on Order-us.com is not a pretty sight. It is awkward and looks more like a programmer’s site, than for players to purchase online lottery tickets. It also doesn’t have the most inspired name but it does seem to make it up to you in simplifying the process of play lotteries online – NOT! They say it is hassle free, but I found the site uninspiring and generally unfriendly. Where are the pictures? Where’s the color?
Before I Go Any Further at Order-us.com
One the things that jumps out on their Home page is their “Refund Policy”. There is no refund policy which makes sense, but I don’t understand why they bold it on their home page. It literally leaps out.
Who is Order-us?
I have no idea who Order-us.com is! This is no terms and conditions, no privacy information, no explanation of their history. no phone numbers, address and the only way to contact them is through what looks like an excel formatted online form. Okay, I get it after reading the FAQ that it has something to do with New Jersey and the site abides by the New Jersey state laws on lotteries, but that still doesn’t tell me a lot. I personally love their Q11, Q15 and Q18 under their FAQ – they simply say deleted!
Who Can Play at Order-us.com?
They really made me nervous with the fact on their home page they stress they purchase Mega Millons and Powerball Lottery tickets on behalf of “legals and illegals, local and foreigners traveling across the US”. Add to this they “run this service for those who may be sick, invalid, tired, busy, on vacation, on duty or just don’t feel like going to the store in bad weather”. Just who are these people targeting as clients? If I am a normal citizen who is healthy and simply thought it would be fun to play a lottery online, can I still be a client?
How Do You Play Order-us.com?
Registration on Order-us.com is fairly straight forward asking for the usual information. Again, the format for this is very amateurish and does not instill confidence.
Order-us Service Charges
Order-us.com has a basic $6.99 to deliver your ticket(s). Some people find the concept of ‘receiving’ your ticket positive, but they don’t say how and when you receive it/them, how it is sent or what guarantees you have on receiving it. Keep in mind their NO refund policy. Regarding winning, Order-us.com comments “To survive we either have to increase the price or request a 5% partnership in the prize. This will give us hope that we may win as well.” Okay, whose lottery ticket is it anyways.
Only Credit Cards at Order-us.com
I’m not sure about the rest of you, but I’m certainly not going to provide my credit card to someone online, where I have no idea where they are or how to contact them except through an online form. But the fact remains, that is all they take.
I’m not even going to bother to look. Their “Terms of Service” says it all. I mean seriously. “They are the only ones on the Internet who actually buy the lottery tickets…” Guess that discredits all other online lottery providers. “Conduct true business and charge you less than others; running on a very thin profit margin”, suggests English as a second language.
The Bottom Line
How can you hope to convince somebody to trust you with his/her cash if your presentation is atrocious and your website looks like a failed college project. Four questions on the FAQ page were deleted, but the designers found it more practical to write the word “deleted” instead of renumbering the remaining ones.
Can’t think of any
The List is too long
Anyone with any sense will take one look at this site and steer clear! There are just too many alarm bells going off. This one gets thumbs down! The only thing I can think of saying in their favor is, it’s hard to believe a company would set up a site this amateurish to scam people.
