My fiance an I got a call on March 5, 2004 late at night telling us that we won a free stay at a hotel and all we'd have to do is attend a 90 minute cooking show and they'll cook us a light meal. We said ok, thinking that the show would be about something for our wedding like catering etc. We went to the show in Walnut Creek, CA on March 7, 2004 Sunday. We filled out a brief survey about health and sat dow to watch wedding bloopers, which were pretty funny. Then they put on a tape about their company and the salesperson explained how teflon is bad and reffered to the ABC special. She then cooked us half a chicken breast, carrots and corn, which was good. We were impressed because the chicken was juicy and it took out the fat.
We then sat down with one of the salespeople, asked about prices and she said we would have to give a downpayment
of $250.00 and my fiance said we couldn't do that so she then offered us to put down $130.00 we said that we don't have that money right now, she explained that it's ok because Barbra, the woman who did the presentation, puts money in for everyone. Then she said someone will call you to confirm the order, just tell them you gave the down because Barbara outs it in. We said yes (BIG MISTAKE!)and it all added up to $1,265.88. Very pricey!
The next day, Monday, I researched this company and found this website, I was surprised because they've already been sued in 2 different states! After I saw this, I called my fiance and told him, we decided to cancel our order.
We tried calling that same day and they told us to call back at 10-4 EST. So today is Tuesday, we called them back and they told us to call Barbara. They gave us her cell number and hotel number where she's staying. Left a message with the concierge and left a message on her cell phone. I feel like we've been on a merry-go-round because when we call someone, they tell us to call 1 number, then they tell us to call another number. We do and there is no answer and no one is telling us how to cancel our order. Someone please help us, we only have one more day to cancel!
