AARP advertised a new benefit exclusively for members - Wirefly Wireless (Liberty Wireless). This company is a RIP-OFF and this statement is to alert anyone who might decide to try this service. There should be a class action suit against this company.

We ordered two phones on 2/21/05 at the cost of $277.96 ($100 for each phone plus the first three months service). We tried to get service within 10 miles of our house until 3/10 when I called Liberty Wireless and told them we were not getting service.

The only live human being we have spoken to in this whole chain of events told me she would "leave a message for the technical department that usually returned calls in 24 hours". Huh? When you keep calling a number, punching buttons, and are transferred (numerous times) to an extension that has been disconnected, you have to wonder about the legitimacy of this or these companies.

On 3/31/05 and 4/1/05 after trying repeatedly to get through to a live person, we sent and received a flurry of emails from Liberty Wireless. One email stated that they did not cover our current location and we were entitled to a refund.

A later email informed us our 30-day return period was over and there would be no refunds, ONLY if we returned the phones and ONLY if the proper department approved the refund. (Fools that we had been, there was no way we would return the phones without some type of guarantee that some of our money would be refunded.) They, also, stated they could not contact us at our home number.

On 4/7/05 we sent a letter (registered return receipt/delivered and signed by someone at that address on 4/11/05) listing the issues and results, firmly requested immediate cancellation, and to not place any further charges on our credit card. (The terms and conditions do state that you need to call to cancel the service, but when you cannot reach anyone to cancel the service you do what you have to do which was send a registered letter.) We thought this issue was put to bed when they received the letter on 4/11/05. Not so.

On 6/18/05 we received the credit card statement and were billed for 3 months of usage on phones that have been unused and in the box since April. We contacted the credit card company and requested a dispute form or we would have to cancel the card. The credit card company was very helpful. After we explained the shortened version of this issue, they agreed to give us a credit for the two charges, and they would pursue this matter on their end. In turn, we need to send another letter to Liberty Wireless.

We have also filed a complaint with the BBB of Greater Washington, DC and the FTC. We will be filing reports with the Attorney General of our State and in Maryland (the only address I have is in Largo, MD), and anyone else who may be able to put a stop to this scam.

We cannot believe that AARP is still introducing this company as a benefit to members. According to this site and the BBB site, it appears we are not the only people being duped. We did notice that there is a new company called TMI with the same addressthat may be affiliated in some way with Liberty Wireless.

Just ordered from Wirefly

AUTHOR: Lenora - (U.S.A.)

Hello,

I just want to say that I have just ordered from Wirefly, but cancelled my order because I ordered the wrong cellphones. They are suppose to return $65.00 to my debit card. I talked to several live people, and even talked to them via instant messaging online. I just cancelled my order today, so I'm sitting back and reviewing my debit card account online to make sure that my money is put back on my card.

So far, I haven't had any problems with them, but if I do, I am going to come back to this website and expose them even more. I know that my Husband ordered two cellphones from Liberty Wireless I believe and the total costs for both of his phones were $100.00 and he wasn't approved for the original wireless plan, so they sent him another plan, I think it was a Prepaid Plan and he didn't want it, so he asked for his money back and they told him they would credit his account. Two months went by, and he never got the money back.

He said he will never fool around with Liberty or any other so called wireless companie's online again. I just hope and pray that they refund my money back to my debit card, because I have a child who is needing a few things right now. I'm sorry that they gave you the run around. STAY AWAY FROM LIBERTY WIRELESS. God Bless.

Similar Experience with "Liberty-Wireless"

AUTHOR: M. - (U.S.A.)

Greetings to Alamogordo!

I do have similar Experience with "Liberty-wireless", and do extensive Research since Days!

I do agree with a "Lawsuit" and will defnitly support that!

I have bought my "Liberty-Phone" at a Dealer in Las Cruces/NM. ~ Lohman Street accross from Wal-Mart.

That Dealer have already cancelled his contract with "liberty-Wireless".

so the Dealer in El-Paso/Texas 915-842-0978

and the 2 former Dealers in Arizona:
Tuscon 520-741-1848
Phoenix 602-741-1848

and all of those Dealers didn't say anything nice about "Liberty-Wireless", and got pretty angry, that "Liberty-Wireless" even mentioned them still as Dealers!

Matterfact, as for right now, there aint no
"Liberty-Wireless" Dealers in the whole entire state of New Mexico, none in Arizona too, and none in West Texas!
Go figure!!!

we all should gather together and do something!

Alone, we're weak.
Together, we're strong!
...like matches: ...you can break 1,2,3, may be 5 and may be 10 or 20, but you can not break 100 matches together!

Greetings from Las Cruces/New Mexico!
