AuraVie Misleading/scam tactics Van Nuys California
In Novemhber after leaving a website, I received a message saying that I could receive one of 3 free gifts. I chose, Auravie, for a beauty supply cream. I then ordered a free 10-day trial sample according to the lead-in message, and had 10 days to cancel my account to prevent getting future shipments billed at $97.88 per month. I canceled my order within 10 days and received an acknowledgement e-mail. I am told that I "misunderstood" the e-mail and websiste order page. I thought I was given a return order number for future shipments (as they could not stop the first shipment was my understanding). I never received any other shipments of this product. A month later, I found a $97.88 charge on my credit card bill and contacted the company by e-mail to request a credit to my credit card account as I had not received any monthly shipment. At that time, I was told that under the terms and conditions that "I agreed to" the initial "free 10-day trial" was actually the monthly 30-day supply. If I didn't cancel within 10 days and return that item within 30 days, I would be charged $97.88. They would not refund my account. Nor would they agree to a later return shipment of their product, as it was now outside the 30 day window for returns.
This is very misleading. I thought I had a free sample. I didn't return it as I thought any return would be my first monthly shipment. And now I am paying the price. Very poor communication practices and I feel like I've been totally scammed! And all for a product that I used for 4 days. My current products work better than this expensive, non-productive product!
