Bruce A Berman,Berman Investment Group Surprise Order I Never Knew I Placed - Deceptive Advertising Practice Newport Beach California
Ok so the $3.95 is for s/h.. So you say, I can give them $3.95 for the secrets to incredible wealth, it is worth it, right?
I received a box, not an envelope, of 11 CDs and a book.
I thought right away why so much for only $3.95?
I came online and searched this company and there it was, all these others saying they were charged $99.00 after 30 days.. I was like oooooh ___, I got scammed.
Sure enough the website I ordered it from does mention the $99.00 in microscopic print but not at all in the main checkout total when you put your CC number in and certainly nowhere in the advertising for the FREE CD and book.
So, what to do. Call the 800 number, ask for a return authorization number, don't wait, they will charge your card. Call and say you want to return it, before you go they will offer it for $75, then $49.00, then $24.95, then $14.90.. just be stubborn and say no alot, I have read it can go as low as $9.90.
Just say no no no and the offers will keep coming, or get your authorization number and send it back, maybe you will get lucky and they won't charge your card, or maybe they will.
Looks like a decent little course so I paid the $14.90 when I got him down that low. To me the ideas and suggestions are worth that much, besides you pay shipping to send it back anyway. You decide what you think it is worth or not worth, your dime, but you can negotiate them way down from the $99.00 if you just stay cool on the phone and hang in there.
GOOD LUCK, they are very sly the way they get that CC number and then hit you for $99.00 30 days later. I was lucky and caught it before they did about 15 days after I ordered it. My advice if you are already in it and they have your CC number? call them right away and get it settled before your return period expires.
