DietPatch DietPatchToday Product is promoted in literature & website for weight loss but state with actual product "...cannot guaranee beyond that of a placebo patch. Internet
DietPatchToday offered a 14 days trial period which starts when the order is placed. I ordered on December 28 th and I noticed a charge for $89.97 on January 11 at which pont I called the company regarding the charge and was told that the charge was correct and if I tried to reverse or chargeback the charges they would take me to court.
The company claims that reversal/chargebacks are handled as potential cases of fraudulent use of product. Indicating the possibility of mail fraud as a Federal Crime. I thought long and hard in choosing my course of action and decided to cancel my old card and get a new number from my credit Union and proceeded to challenge the charge, which my Credit Union has reversed as of February 6, 2012.
I do expect that the company will take me to court, the applicable law is based in Arizona, which may require an attorney in Pheonix AZ. Well, I am only trying to get rid of a bad apple in the barrel who has been scamming unsuspecting consumers and threatening them when they complain. It would be cheaper and easier to just write off the $89.97 as a "Dumb Tax", but the unscrupulous company will continue to scam others.
I believe that we have an obligation to our brothers and sisters in this world to expose greedy and unprincipled business people.
