Haband, Haband VIP Plus Scamming and Targeting Senior Citizens, Internet
*UPDATE Employee: VIP Plus Membership
I ordered a blouse my mother described she liked at haband.com. My husband recently asked me why Haband was debiting our account $14.95 a month for the past four months! I contacted Haband and asked them why they charged my account $1.99, and then four consecutive months a $14.95 fee for a blouse that I paid for and was charged $19.00? They explained that I enrolled into their VIP program. I explained that I did not enroll in such a program, but asked what exactly does the VIP program entail.
The Haband representative said that the VIP program entails members to receive 10% discount on certain orders and on their "partners" websites. So basically they charge innocent people $180 a year to get a 10% discount on items less than $20. Wow a $2.00 savings on a standard order.
It is clear they have picked their target audience. Most of the residents in senior care or assisted living do not balance or manage their accounts. Adult parents or friends managing their accounts probably don't notice or want to hassle or haggle a $15.00 charge.
This is the lowest of all crimes to target our most vulnerable citizens!
