I was contacted by an individual over the telephone who said I could become a secret shopper in my area and earn extra money. She said for $2.95 I would be placed on their list, and I could see what department stores, etc are advertising for a secret shopper.
There was never any mentions of a trial period or that $49.95 would be charged also. I specifically asked (and the lady told me I was being recorded), if $2.95 was all I would be charged. When she was going thru all the other stuff (she talked really fast) she mentioned $49.95. I said "whoa, where is this $49.95 coming from?" She said it was a website where I could earn even more money. I said I don't want that. I just want the list of stores for secret shoppers. I specifically told her I didn't want any other charge but $2.95. She kept pressuring me. I finally asked her "would you spend $50 on a so called website?" She stammered and mumbled. I should have cancelled there, but she assured me $2.95 was all I would be charged.
Today, my husband goes into our bank. $49.95 has been charged. The bank gave me their telephone number. They absolutely REFUSED to refund. I was hung up on the first time. I called back and asked to speak to a supervisor. They said I agreed to the charge. I said I absolutely did not, and the rep who took the order said we were being recorded. I told them I wanted someone to listen to that conversation and that I had her name and extension and the time and date. They said they have a third party verifier and it was verified that I agreed. I asked for the third parties name and telephone number. They hung up on me.
I called back and asked to speak to a supervisor. I asked for his name Zach at ext 0150. I asked for their address (because I was contacting my Attorney General's office). The address is 40 E Main Street, Suite 600, Newark, Delaware. If that really is address!
I don't trust these people. They lie, and they cheat. I told them if I had $50.00 I wouldn't be looking for a way to earn extra money and they bounced my account. I never got an individual that spoke very good English. When I asked him if HE was located in Delaware he wouldn't answer me.
