Hi Alessandro,

Are you in Brazil, right?! Why don't you request some help from
PROCON? ( that means Consumer Protection Department, from whom is not
in Brazil). ;-)
I believe they can help you with your frustrations. As far as I
understood, you are not interesting in improving anything here, you
just want to "spread" your rage. When you buy something you already
MUST know what you're buying.
