Fraud of Shopper Discounts & Rewards aka WebLoyalty, Inc.

I recently saw a charge worth $12.00 from Shopper Discounts & Rewards on my credit card. At first I neglected it, but fortuitously I noticed that the same charge is coming on my statement every month. Since the amount was not too much, it could never catch my sight. I called my bank and came to know that Shopper Discounts has been charging me for last 7 months. On further investigation and search on internet I found out that I was not the only one. There are zillions of other victim customers just like me, who were charged by this devil company.

 Bulk edit gridview has been created so that users can view a large amount of data in a grid and in the same grid they can make changes in the data and save as well. Lots of times during web application development in .NET, my team and I felt the need of a grid control which can open all the rows in edit mode.

Albeit .NET’s gridview allows us to have edit template for its columns; however, only one row at a time can be opened in edit mode. With the impetus from my project manager, I decided to create a custom control for this purpose.
