LEAN RX - RIPPED OFF AFTER CANCELLING HOODIA ACCT 7 MONTHS AGO $79.95 CHARGE TO CREDIT CARD 7 MONTHS AFTER CANCELLING HOODIA ACCOUNT BY CERTIFIED MAIL California
Last January I ordered the "Free" Hoodia after seeing a promotion on the news. I received the Hoodia and my credit card ended up being charge a total of $135.00 for the "free hoodia" and an unknown online exercise plan. I tried to fight but was told I did not read the fine print. My credit card number was passed onto an online exercise program (what the hell could that be???) without my permission and I was told because I ordered hoodia I inadvertently gave permission to be billed for exercise program. I immediately sent a certified letter cancelling my account as requested by hoodia and I thought that was the end of it, I learned a lesson about internet buying ripoffs.
Well, 7 months later, I saw a charge on my debit card for $79.95 without product or explanation from a place called Lean RX. I called and spoke to a female rep named Bobbie on 9-28-06 and was told that her company took over hoodia and because I cancelled by certified mail (she found evidence of same) that I would be reimbursed within 4 weeks. Over a month and many calls later I am still waiting. How can any company just deduct $79.95 from your bank account without permission?? How is this legal???? Any advice would be appreciated. I am attemping to find an actual address to send a certified letter again. I just want my money back.
