The usual deception and rudeness. One big SCAM. You have to be public on forums related to PC hardware. I have already written 10 e-mails to the headquarters and I am waiting for a reply.

yeah it happened to almost everyone, mods are just unaware puppets as they mention while mailing service is unresponsive as f** and it's not just for the case of these rewards but they are unresponsive and not knowing anything as if this program is run by some other company, talked to live support he said that this is only for technical issues I don't understand why to start something when you can't manage it properly.

First off, See : >>Please read and comply with the Forum Rules.<<
Next, 'we' being the moderators, do what we can. We have no say, and no ability, to do anything more than say to contact MSI.

You don't have to like it. But you also don't have a right to act this way either. Stop. That's your warning. (after the MANY threads you've spammed with this type of inappropriate reply)

I am posting in rewards and promotion, so there is nothing here to tell me about that, I can see that completely you have no power, and also you don't have to act offended if you are in no power as it's out of your limits as you mentioned and I have the right to react always because I wasted my time here to get something in return. You wanna ban, go ahead ban me, I don't care that anymore, if I am able to purchase devices and parts I can easily get steam balance but this is not about just 12 USD balance it's about right and wrong and accepting it if something is going wrong. I have not given an inappropriate reply, this is what it feels like when you contact the guys specially there for help and they say we are not able to help because we have nothing, so if you have nothing why waste others effort, end the whole process stop misleading people into a trap of bad services and responses.

TAKEN DIRECT FROM GOVERNMENT WEBSITE !!! LOOK IT UP , MSI IS BREACHING MY RIGHTS IN NZ WITH THIS FOOLERY!!!!

Businesses must not mislead or deceive you about the things they sell. This covers anything written or said about products or services, including:

  • advertising
  • any impressions from images
  • information that's left out if this may create a false impression.
It doesn't matter if a trader didn't intend to mislead, and they can't rely on fine print in advertising or contracts to correct a misleading overall impression or hide important conditions.

This includes statements or conduct that's liable to mislead or deceive about:

  • the nature, manufacturing process, characteristics, quantity, price, standard, quality, origin or history of a product or service
  • suitability for a particular purpose, benefits, endorsements or approval
  • the availability, nature, terms or conditions of a job in an offer of employment.
Claiming you’re something you’re not(external link) — Commerce Commission

Quotes and estimates may be considered misleading conduct if the final cost is bigger than you expected.

Quotes and estimates

If a business displays an item with an incorrect price, the trader doesn't usually have to sell it at that price. If the incorrect pricing was a genuine mistake, they have the right to ask you to pay the correct amount. Read about what happens if you're undercharged:



Unfair practices banned by the FTA include:

  • Bait advertising (using misleading incentives) — when a trade advertises products and services they can’t supply. These must be available in reasonable quantities for a given period of time (or a reasonable time if no time is set). Any limits on the offers should be clearly stated.
  • Harassment and coercion — using threats, physical force or other controlling tactics to sell products, services or land, or to get payment. There can be a fine line with hard-sell techniques where you feel forced to buy.
  • Pyramid selling — where you get financial rewards for recruiting new people to pay into the scheme. Often these are financial scams with high promised rates of return. Pyramid schemes are illegal, but multi-level marketing schemes are legal. (Multi-level marketing participants earn commission from selling products. Pyramid sellers earn money solely or primarily by introducing other people into the scheme.)
  • Referral selling — where you are encouraged to buy something because of a promised reward for giving the names of other potential customers.
  • Pro-forma invoicing and inertia selling — when traders bill you for products or services you didn't agree to buy. You don't have to pay if you never agreed to the sale. Your silence does not show agreement.
  • Unsolicited products or services — when you receive products or services you didn't ask for or order. The only exceptions are electricity and piped gas.
  • Taking payment without intending to supply — or supplying very different products or services from those ordered. Traders must give you what you have agreed to buy, or a reasonable substitute if you agree.
  • False or misleading representations about the profitability, risk or other relevant aspect of a "work from home" business activity, or a business activity requiring you to work or invest money.
  • Importing products with inaccurate labels.

The Fair Trading Act almost always applies.
Traders can’t get you to agree that the rules against misleading or unfair trading won’t apply to you, even if you sign a contract with a clause to that effect. It is illegal and the clause is not enforceable.
Businesses cannot contract out of their obligations under the Act, except for a limited exception for business-to-business transactions that meet certain requirements.
Contracting out of the Fair Trading Act(external link) — Commerce Commission



The Fair Trading Act makes it illegal for traders to mislead consumers, give false information, or use unfair practices. The law applies to anyone in trade – from big organisations like hotel chains, airlines and department stores, to small or temporary businesses like a souvenir stall or ice cream stand.

It also applies to advertising in all forms such as online, print, TV, social media - and in all dealings with consumers.

Consumers must be able to rely on the information traders provide when buying goods and services.

Furthermore :



The internet has given businesses the opportunity to sell to anyone no matter where they are.
But the internet is not a 'free for all' where anything goes. The Fair Trading Act applies if you engage in business in New Zealand and this includes advertising or selling to New Zealand consumers online, even if you are based outside of New Zealand.
If consumers can purchase goods and services from you online, you must also make it clear that you are in trade. This is so that consumers know they are protected under the Fair Trading Act and the Consumer Guarantees Act.
Read more about what being 'in trade' means.

There are many different ways of selling online including:
  • websites
  • smartphone applications
  • emails
  • text messaging
  • social media
  • online auctions such as Trade Me and eBay
  • ticket reselling platforms
  • daily deal and group buying websites.
The law applies to offers and sales made through all of these channels, and more. It does not matter what promotional method you choose.
If you sell goods or services online, you must:
  • make it clear to potential buyers that you are in trade
  • ensure any representations you make about the goods or service are accurate and not capable of misleading or deceiving consumers.
  • not mislead consumers about their rights
  • have a reasonable basis for any claims you make about your goods or services
  • avoid engaging in unfair sales practices, such as bait advertising or pyramid selling
  • comply with the product safety and consumer information standards where relevant, and not sell any goods prohibited by an unsafe goods notice.
You must also comply with the Consumer Guarantees Act. There are minimum guarantees that apply to all products and services.
Goods should:
  • be of acceptable quality
  • be fit for a particular purpose
  • arrive on time and in good condition
  • match the description
  • be supported by available spare parts and repair facilities (by manufacturers).
Services should be:
  • carried out with reasonable care and skill
  • fit for a particular purpose
  • carried out in a reasonable time
  • charged for at a reasonable price.
If you make misleading representations about the consumers' rights under the Consumer Guarantees Act (or under any other law) you may breach the Fair Trading Act. Read more about your obligations under the Consumer Guarantees Act on the Consumer Protection website.

Therefore, Mod, WE as CONSUMERS have the RIGHT to REACT. My Government ensures I have this right. And I have already complained to our commissioners about these here breaches of MY RIGHTS by MSI after trying fruitlessly for MSI to comply within the LAW THAT THEY'RE BOUND BY. You as a mod, DO NOT have the RIGHTS to IMPEDE on MY RIGHT.

If you're in NEW ZEALAND as Refugee/Citizen or Student/Working Visa's and this has happened to you, I suggest giving our Consumers a good looking over, then making your complaint than we can and will see faster results. That is all, keep safe everyone.

you complaining here is fine but like we have told you now several times this is not the place for your pity party and your just being very aggressive all the time as this is a:

----USER TO USER FORUM----

all complaining here does is waste everyone involved time as there is noting that will come of this and as you keep attacking the mods here Enjoy your 3 day Ban unless someone else decides it should be permanent.

It should be. He was warned, multiple times, both privately and publicly about it.
No one cares what his stance is. No one here even cares what new zealands stance is. It matters not, at all. Not 1 single bit.

So he can stay banned, permanently, rather than taking peoples advice and suggestions on how to actually go about rectifying the situation properly.
