    Re: need answers fast about anvidirect

    I'm not sure this is the appropriate place for you to ask, and moreover you can and should do this homework yourself. That being said...

    What I notice about AnviDirect's site is that at the bottom of the pages, they proudly display certifications from CNet, mySimon, and Gomez. What caught my interest is that, as opposed to other random suppliers I checked, AnviDirect's certification logos don't link to anything (like their profile on those sites). So...

    At CNet, I searched for "anvidirect"; no results (although other suppliers' names do produce search results). For some dumbass reason, CNet doesn't seem to have a page of suppliers and links to their profiles; go figure... In fairness, I will note that CNet does display a list of dirtbags that falsely display the certification logo, and AnviDirect isn't on the list (but that could mean they just haven't been reported, investigated and listed yet).

    mySimon uses CNet for certification, so it's pointless to search there.

    And as to Gomez - they eliminated their certification program in 2002 (interestingly, the same year that AnviDirect started up, according to their "about us" page). The following text was posted back in June of 2002 at epinions.com, a customer opinions site I use frequently (a link was given, too, but the page no longer exists at Gomez, nor is there any mention on their site of the now-defunct certification program): We regret to announce that the Gómez Merchant Certification program has ceased operations as of March 31, 2002... In light of this decision, Gómez will not conduct any further merchant certifications. We will also remove all references to Gómez Merchant Certification other than this notice on Gómez.com on April 1, 2002. Merchants currently certified under the Gómez Certification program should remove all references, logos and/or images of the Gómez Merchant Certification program displayed on their sites or affiliate sites by March 31, 2002. (Emphasis added)

    Finally, I searched for AnviDirect at both epinions and Bizrate, both of whom have vendor ratings online (Bizrate claims to have over 80,000 store ratings) Again -- no results. Kinda odd for a company that's been around since 2002...?

    Having said all that... who knows, they might be just fine.

    Caveat Emptor, baby.
