Consortium Group, LLC Skin Care For YouFrontier Beauty Advertisement on local news webpage was deceptive. Did not indicate price or auto renewal. Paducah Internet
The company in question used a myriad of advertisements posted on our local newspaper website. The websites, and images varied from day to day. They declaired their product was on Shark Tank, and was being introduced by all four members of the show, who were excited about the new product, and enthusiastically went together to invest in the product.
There were two products offered. The first was Clair Extra Firming Complex ointment. The other is ReviveEyes Ageless Eye Balm. In fact, none of those products identified were on Shark Tank. Neither were any of the investers connected to this scam product.
The ingredients are ordinary, and no documented evidence was given to prove they were effective. In fact, during the trial period my wife could not determine the eye cream or the skin potion did anything. They were greasy.
Clairskin.org is another website. The webpage my wife visited was different. It did not indicate the products would be charged to our credit card, nor did they specify her orders would be on permenant, and automatic re-order.
When she spoke to a spokesman to the company, through Consortium Group, they offered to cut the price in half. No refund was offered, even after we demanded one. I called back, and got another website to order more product. This was different from the one my wife viewed initially. She responded to a .net account. The others were .org or .com websites.
The website my wife responded to said it was a free offer, and all she had to pay for was for the shipping. They made it seem they were sending a 14 day supply. If she liked it, she could order more.
Our credit card was hit with a $92.42 charge, and a $94.26 charge on 7/28.
Before this, our card was hit with a $87.47 and $89.31 charge on 6/28.
We did not agree to any of these purchases. We called our credit card company, and disputed the amounts. We will continue to seek legal council, and report this to the police.
