Iowa steak company Spanway Wa., Select State/Province USA
Iowa steak company Spanway Wa. Iowa debited 500.00 without my authorization !! Washington, Belfair Wa.
Good evening people, what I have to say about the Iowa steak company might sound unbelievable, I unsure you this is the whole truth, keep you're guard up thieves and scam artists prey on gulable people, people like me who trust people to easily. It was Saturday afternoon and I was parked in my car at the entrance to a neighborhood on a lake waiting for a friend to pick him up and take him to pick up some groceries. While parked on this warm Sat. afternoon waiting, here rolls up a Iowa steak company truck, they motioned to me like roll my window down, I motioned to them "I'm not interested" as I really was not.
My car was pointed towards driving in the neighborhood on the side of the road and they were driving out. He insisted I listen to the deal he had for me for 5 dollars, I thought, well OK, I can do 5 dollars (first mistake) so they backed up and pulled up behind my car. I said all I have is a debit card (second mistake) . Remmember the only reason I'm even talking to him is because of a 5 dollar deal, as he opnens the slider door he continues to stack box after box on top of each other and a little small talk going on. So he calls the purchase in using an old school paper carbon copy system for debit cards.
Here is the thing, I live in a house with no power at this time, a remodel so I have nowhere to even store this meat, but all I wanted was a 5 dollar steak is all I was after, then his partner asks for a tip, transaction was over and I had no cash for a tip which turns out I wish I used cash for this purchase. As they drove off they said remember us for hooking you up next time never once realizing there was a huge debit coming to my bank account. The next morning I found out they debited my account for 499.00 not the 5 dollars we agreed to, I honestly beloved they were purging product that was thawing out and unsellable the following day.
So I called them and pulled out my receipt and to my surprise the part of the receipt that has the money break down is blank! I mean blank ! I stopped payment and will see what can be done, however I realize I will probably be stuck with the charge being that I kept a small amount for me and drove around and gave 99 % away to friends, people who needed it as I really believed his word on the 5 dollars we agreed to, otherwise I would not have even spoke to him, at no time did he tell me he bait and switch the amount as soon as he had my debit card, I should have continued to ignore them, wolves in sheep clothing!
I never at anytime gave him permission to charge me 499.00 as that was all I had in my bank account, I live on 1500.00 a month and cannotvaford to debit large amounts like that!! So becarfull, they used stong deception to do this and I played the sucker, do not trust them!! Well see what happens, I got rude treatment from local office but had better experience vwith corporate office in Idaho, I mailed them that goofy receipt with nothing written on it about what I was charged, stay far from them, they are slick!!
