As stated in my title, these guys would not cancel her account with them. She wasted over $16 in postal fees to send back the books she didn't order and then they still charged her.

These charges caused her account to go into overdraft 2 times. Her account is linked to my overdraft so it cost me over $50 in fees. Plus they also snuck in the one dollar charge on her too.

I've owned internet businesses before and this type of ripoff is what gives internet companies a bad name.

Plus, I know my bankers personally through my business and this doesn't look good in my relationship with them. I'm going in tomorrow and explaining just what this company is doing to my daughter and seeing if I can cancel her account and open a new one to get away from their dishonest dealings. Companies like this know that most people will just pay the charges instead of fight them because a lawyer and time are very cost prohibitive.

I can't wait to see them put out of business or shamed to the point where everyone gets their number and stops buying their product.

Olingo Language CD's rips off again

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

My daughter paid to have the unwanted taped shipped back after she called and cancelled her account with Olingo. I just called Olingo and they said they keep a record of every phone call and every email. They claim she didn't call or cancel or ship back the language tapes because they have no record of any of those things. This is a total ripoff. These operators are trained to sound like they care and to put you off in a soothing manner, but that doesn't deter me. The woman I talked to claimed she was sending my daughter an email of how to send back the CD's and will credit her card for the $76.90. I'll believe it when I see it.

She said it is my daughter's responsibility to prove she canelled and mailed back the other CD's. She said my daughter would have to provide a tracking number for her return and still prove she did it before they can credit her account. Come on!!!! I hope she kept the number, but how many people really hang on to something like that when they think the company(Olingo) is keeping their word and cancelling her account and refunding her money like they said they would, especially after a couple of months.

Hard lesson learned I guess. She got two more overdraft charges because of the practices of this company. This just isn't honest.
