*Consumer Comment: Dermabelle is a company to avoid doing business with
This company touts a free trial sample. After inputting your credit card #, evidently there is a terms & conditions statement in fine print explaining that you have to call within 14 days to stop the charge of the full cost of the items and a subscription to receive these products on a monthly basis to the tune of $180/month. Only after receiving my Visa statement and their second shhipment did I realize what was going on.
Upon calling this company and informing them that I would expect a full refund upon return of the second shipment did they state that they do not accept returns.
They offered a credit of 25% of the second purchase. After arguing with them about this, they offered a 50% credit. Upon further arguing, they offered a 75% credit. I asked that I receive a 75% discount on the first sale as well. They refused to do so. I accepted the 75% credit.
Upon calling our Visa card to stop payment on the first charge, the Visa company told me that they receive at least 15 calls a day regarding this scam and that there was nothing they could do about this as the company would win because of their terms & conditions and their right to refuse returns. The Visa company said I was lucky to get the 75% credit as lots of people don't even get that.
Don't get caught up in this as I should have known better, but am now out $220!
