Real Problems with NOORAN CORP-1-2-3Convert

by patcshaw / December 13, 2006 7:46 AM PST

I read the reviews on C/NET and downloaded the trial. I liked it so much, I ordered the full program. Immediately I received an acknowledgement that they had my VISA card charged. And I waited for my Key and the link to the full program. Efforts to reach them by their own links are futile. Their own E-mail links come back as "unauthorized" and the phone is a recording saying everyone is too busy and they'll call back -- but no one does. Two weeks and numerous attempts to reach them have failed. Has anyone else dealt with this company? This is the second time I have purchased and paid for a full program I downloaded as a trial and failed to receive it. Anyone have a solution to stopping this kind of poor service at best and fraud in this case?

2 Ways

The market controls it's self, if service is bad people will stop using them and have to close.

The two things that you can are:
Contact the Better Business Bureau,
Contact your credit card company and challenge the charge.

Credit Card companies take things like this very seriously. If they start to see lots of reversed charges from a single company they will drop that company. Then who is going to buy a program when they can't use their Visa card to buy it.

Noorancorp rip-off

I had the exact same problem when I downloaded the full version of Pdf-file: they confirmed billing my credit card, promised codes and links to let me download the program, and then nothing. No response to emails to customer support either. I tried to get the charge reversed, but it was on a debit card, and the owners of Noorancorp DID take the time to challenge my appeal and demand the money. I have still not received the product.

I can't delete or edit the previous, so I'll just add another comment. After posting here, I sent a link to the post to Noorancorp, through the customer service link on their website. While other messages got no reply, this one did, and they offered to deliver the product, or refund my money as I'd found an alternative. The credit hit my bank today. I'm satisfied. My suspicion is that they have some burps in their email product delivery system now and then, along with some problems with email to the helpdesk.

Poor support and difficult to work with
by mefell / September 5, 2011 10:00 AM PDT

I am having the same problems with the company and the product. I bought 123 in 2009 and decided to update a couple of weeks ago for Office 2010.

There were some hiccups in 2009 but these were remedied with reasonable speed. Though not necessarily sound customer service.

The new 123FileConvert product does not run and despite numerous emails to 123 which has finally included a request for a refund and request to at least reversion to the previous working version and its registration key, I have not received any resolution.

Despite 10 days of requests and advising 123 that I am unable to produce PDF work, no satisfactory outcome has been reached.

So regardless of being an "old" customer of the company thier loyalty and poor customer services seems to prevail and has done so at least since 2006 according to this thread.

It is a product and company to be seriously considered before dealing with them.

Something is fishy here.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 5, 2011 10:19 AM PDT

I looked at the product and it does not produce PDFs but rather coverts PDF to RTF.

Given how I can protect PDF content it would be lunacy to expect any software to reliable do such a conversion. This is why, when I protect a PDF I offer a contact link in the PDF for folk to write me when they need to source.

Something is fishy with the above 2011 post.
