Complaint Review: Alpha Wear Fitness
Alpha Wear Fitness Alpha Wear, Albert Mislead, tricked, fooled, threatened, lied, harassed Orlando, Florida Internet
It started by them liking something I posted on instagram and then following me, I saw an athlete search thing and thought what the heck. About 2 days later "Albert the CEO" contacted me that they had selected me one of 50 out of like a thousand. Seemed like a legitimate company trying to grow at this point. Then he asked me my age and how many of their products I had, of course none and they only were looking for people who already had stuff. Then he proceeded to make the pitch if you buy 6-8 today we can continue, stating that this would be the last fitness clothing purchase I would need to make. This made me suspicious but my ego got the best of me, so I made the purchase. Then talked to this Albert on the phone still seemed legitimate at this point but then they never said a legitimate date of shipping saying customers come first but pushing me to make sales and promote their product that I should make $100 dollars of sales a day. So I showed some stuff to friends and other people I knew they were not interested, so my thought was this is not for me. Then talking to my uncle I mentioned something to him about it he said thats cool if they give you free stuff but if they ask for any money tell them to hit the road. That was essentially my "OH ****" moment. I checked the site and there was no way to cancel the orders just ways to place more, they said they did not do returns just exchanges. I proceeded to email support to just cancel my order, it had not been shipped so should not be an issue. At this point I found out they had a rating of F by the BBB.
Albert contacted me being very rude, essentially saying I was an idiot for beleiveing the BBB report rather than him. Then said that he would make sure I never had a career in fitness, like he is the king of the fitness industry all of a sudden. I said something about contacting my bank on the issue that I dealt with a fraudulant business and he threatened to get attorneys envolved, something he said about their BBB rating too, and that I would be banned from banks for buyer fraud. I just wanted to cancel an order because of all the other negative things I had seen, if they had been a legitimate business they should have no problem recovering from "haters" as he said. Whereas I would have been nuetral about the company if they had canceled my order, I have only negative things to say now. Had I done more research I would have seen all these reports. I was fooled and now feel stupid for it, I hate feeling stupid. Just want to put a stop to this scumbaggery.
