Today I am looking at my bank statement on line and see this charge for $88.97 from the same company. I immediately called my bank and they said it was a pre-authorized debit transaction and that there was nothing that they could do until it had cleared and then I could take off from work, drive down 30 miles to the local branch and fill out the banks papers and in 10 days I may or may not be able to get my money back.
The bank tried to call the company for me after I explained to them that I had only received a free supply and it was for 14days, definiately not $87 dollars worth. Guess what? Yep, the number that was provided to the bank was one digit short of being valid. Hmmn, bet that was accidental right?
I googled the name on the envelope that the product was sent in and found that there was a phone number, I called it and after being on hold for several minutes got this flat, monotone voice that clearly was not happy to be getting the call. He explained to me that the charge was from the shipment that I was being sent because I did not cancel my subscription within 20 days of the product being shipped to me. I explained that I did not know anything about any shipment and that I wanted my money put back into my account. He told me to email the support team and/or billing to get it back. I was too mad to explain to him that all of that would be far too late to stop the insuffient funds fees that I would be liable for behind the trickery and deceit of his company. It is absolutely criminal what they are doing to people. The funny thing is that on the initial email the name "Crest" was plastered all over the ad, that is what made me feel safe in doing it. Everyone can trust Crest right? It is a set up and trick! And to top it off, the free tube of toothpaste that was promised was not in the bag! I hope that this report is posted all over the world and that the people behind this scam end up behind bars for stealing!
