Fight Fast Company scams you by charging you $100s without your knowledge or approval. Visalia California
Fight Fast is a company that offers survival gear and classes or instructions on martial arts/ survival tecniques, etc. I have never bought anything from them in the past. I received an email from them with a offer for a free knife, all I had to do was pay shipping and handling ($9.99), pretty good deal. When you go into their website you put your payment information and proceed to pay for your product, but wait, you are not done yet, here comes a really cool offer for another really cool free product, and your oder is not complete until you take a look at it, the deal is pretty sweet, a really cool survival tool and some dvd self defense classes or something similar, the page does not mention any costs whatsoever, shipping or otherwise for the offer, while at the same time you think you are just browsing the offer you click continue and another amazing free offer appears, you go through the same process, take a look at it, it all seems pretty cool, but same deal here, no charges of any kind are shown anywhere.
So you click continue thinking that you are going to be taken to a preview or review page so you can verify the charges $, your address, your payment info, etc, like any other decent company website out there does, you know what I mean, you always, always get to review you charges before you click submit payment.
Ahhh, but not Fight Fast, oh no, they do not. A new page opens up with a receipt, telling you that you have already been charged for the initial product, in my case the knife ($9.99), then another receipt below this one for $199.99!!!! for the first free offer!!! Then another receipt below this one for $129.00 for the second free offer!!! you feel like WTF?? you look around the page confused to see if this is a review page, but no, now it is in plain black and white, a receipt for all the charges they have taken out of your payment method. There is no link anywhere in the page to call or cancel the order. You start to freak out for the fact that you just got scammed for almost $350.00 for some bullshit DVDs and some cheap survival trinkets.
You do receive some emails pretty quick detailing all the charges for each individual purchase, at the bottom it has the company's physiscal address, email, phone number and web address. you call the 1-800 number and you never get to talk to a live person, only a recording, you get re-directed to the returns and cancellations line, you listen to a new recording telling you that this company does not allow cancellations, that you have to wait to until you receive your stuff, then return it and then you will receive your refund. You are left there dumbfounded not knowing what to do.
I also sent a couple of very angry emails to the email address provided and I'm currently waiting on an answer.
I called my bank to make a report of fraudulent charges and to stop payment of this scam, my bank is usually pretty good about this but since the charges are only pending for the moment there is nothing I can do, I have to wait until the charges go through then I can take action if I don't hear from Fight Fast.
I have gone looking throught the web for reviews about Fight Fast and I ahve found dozens of people that were scammed or ripped off in the same manner, some for less, some for more, but there are dozens of case out there.
Thank you for listening.
