I found MedWows website by doing a google search and I registered an account. I was then contacted by a very professional account manager who explained the benefits and features of the website to me. I like the site but have not done any transactions yet.
I don't see any reasons not to use them if they have something I can use at the right price

Andrew,
I too have recently been contacted by MEDWOW. Until now I have never heard of the Website. Which in itself is not unusual. There are 100's of new websites popping up daily. BUT,... I have been a "user" of Dotmed.com since it has been in existence. I have seen LOTS of "OTHER" COPYCAT Websites come & go! But, DOTMED is still here!
So, yes there are a "few" legit websites... But, NONE OF THEM has been here and done as GREAT a job for my firm, as Dotmed HAS/IS doing for me.
We have a saying in Virginia: "If It Ain't Broke.. DON'T FIX IT!!"..

I completed a Medwow Franchise Application form but never received an acknowledgement or response.

We've recently received a number of complaints from DOTmed users regarding spam being sent to them from MedWow sales representatives. These representatives admit to having found our users via DOTmed.

In response to this spam we've been asked several questions about MedWow, and while we can't be certain, we'll do our best to answer these questions here:

1) Many of you have asked where MedWow is based. We've heard reports that they are based in either or all of Cyprus, Kazakhstan, Indonesia or Iran. We can't confirm any of those locations. Although their website claims that they are based in Cyprus, they use many proxy servers when they crawl our site and as such we can't be certain of their origin.

2) We are not sure if they introduce buyers to sellers or if they purchase equipment on their own behalf. Some users we've spoken to claim that MedWow is using shell third parties to purchase equipment and resell it at higher prices, and again we can't confirm this. We do know that they charge a per-listing fee, although we're not sure how payment is made: via international credit card or wire transfer.

3) A number of people have asked where the listings they currently have on their site come from and if we recognize any of the equipment for sale. We do know that a few blacklisted DOTmed users are selling equipment via MedWow. MedWow has said in the emails they've sent that they have a number of 'fictitious listings' on their site for testing purposes. Unfortunately, we're not sure what that means.

We encourage you to use common sense when dealing with companies on the internet.

We have also been contacted by a MEDWOW sales representative who was very professional but persistent. I set up an account and they requested that we upload our inventory list. We did and I noticed that not all our inventory was posted. Several very low ball offers have come in for some items but have yet to close any deals.

One thing that I noticed was that on several calls with the MEDWOW sales rep, the call quality was very poor. Maybe it is nothing but it just struck me as odd. My gut feeling may be wrong but I am still not convinced. Follow the advice of DOTMed Customer Service.

Thank you. I was contacted by them this morning and also did a Google search. One of the Google offerings was MedWow Scam... not a good start. I won't bother. This dialogue has probably saved me some grief.

Dear All,
We have tried to close a deal thru Medvow. They took us USD 25 to give access to the suppliers email id and the telephone no. We even transferred USD 5000 to the so called supplier and never heared back from the supplier. So every one should be very cautios while dealing this way.

In the past week we've seen at least six accounts register via offshore proxies in order to post on this thread in MedWow's support. Because of our anti-fraud technology we can be completely certain that they (MedWow) are creating accounts under fake identities solely to post in DOTmed's forums, and the users behind these attempted posts do not exist. These proxies are the same that MedWow have been using for months to attempt to take listings from our site and post them on MedWow.com without the seller's or DOTmed's permission.

In fact, many listings on MedWow appear to be nothing more than duplicates of their DOTmed originals. We continue to block their attempts to steal listings from our site, but they continue to find new proxy servers to use from all over the world.

We will leave it to our users to decide if this is a fraudulent or deceptive practice, and in order to avoid any further confusion we will be closing this thread to new posts.

The person behind MedWow is called Sammy Lawford. He is a cagey and cunning person. I met him some time ago but recently contacted him again because some years ago he claimed that he was direct to Medical Specialist on a global scale. Upon contacting him again, I told him I had a sister that needed a Triple bypass, as she has three leaking valves, and that the surgeons in NZ, stated although they can repair the leaking valves they felt that one of the leaking valves even after repairing would not be strong enough to pull her through the operation, therefore I searched for Sammy Lawford with the help of close friends and found him. i sent him my sisters medical file and he came back to me yesterday to say that he had two Specialists, one from Germany and the other from Israel that can do the operation successfully but there will be costs for them to either travel to NZ and or for my sister to travel to Germany. These costs I expected.
But wait for it.....he would not provide any Medical Reports from the Specialist until I make prepayment first, in other words pay Upfront fees. I told him that I need to see the Specialist Medical diagnostic report and or have a discussion with the Specialist before I will make any prepayment. He did not like this! As far as he is concerned he wanted payment first before providing Medical Diagnostic Reports from the Specialist. I have all of our email and skype discussions for proof of his demands!
He is rude and arrogant and not willing to provide any company details either. I have his skype and contact number.
Do not trust MedWow and the person behind MedWow, Sammy Lawford. He is a fraudster.....

You can’t possibly believe his real name is Sammy Lawford? The guy is from some other country like Nigeria.
His fake name he used with me is Larry Lawrence, he must be picking names from a phone book LAW...Lawford, Lawrence...
