Doba Doba.com - Heavy Harassment, Tons of Phone Calls, Doesn't give up, SCAM - Internet
Okay, I saw an advertisement to this company through another website which I forgot. I figured hmm... this looks interesting! So I clicked on this add and read about this site, realized it was free to use so I made my account. Upon looking at their merchandise available for sale, I realized the prices are WAY too high and no way was what I was looking for.
Now, all of a sudden I get these calls to my cellphone. I have no idea how (I must of had to put my number when I registered). I received up to FIVE a day, and did not answer any as I don't answer numbers I don't know. I got fed up after about the tenth day of 5 calls / day and figured what the heck, I'll see who it is.
This call went on for about an hour. Turned out to be a very convincing call explaining how good this website is. The entire call I felt pressured and harassed and felt like I HAD to give my credit card info to subscribe to this $49/month service and give it a try. I figured the paid version would have a better selection of items than the free, limited service.
Boy was I wrong. The prices are still WAY too high and next to ZERO potential to make a profit unless you spend a gazillion hours trying to find ONE product thats priced decent, which I refused to do.
I called their number demanding a refund as the service wasn't right for me. They objected when I wanted to cancel my service and DIDNT LET ME. I was sucked into paying the $49 for something I didn't use.
Another month went by and a nice $69.95 came out of my card despite the fact I didn't even use the service for the whole month. I was going to cancel before hand but due to 2 very HARASSING calls I felt I COULDNT cancel even if I wanted to.
Now, going on month 2, I finally built up the courage to call this scamming company and was able to cancel before another $69.95 came out.
All in all, I threw away $118.95 for a scam of a website that has a no refund policy, charges WAY too much for their items, and is impossible to really make money using (which of course is the whole reason I signed up).
I learned my lesson, but I hope if anyone reads this and saves $49 or more by STAYING AWAY from this website, it's all worth my time in writing it :)
