#1 Consumer Suggestion

Me too

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

The very same thing happened to me. But I was quick enough to get a refund. I would suggest that you cancel your member as soon as you can. The website you have as a monthly fee of around $20. If you did not buy the kit outright, they will keep charging the monthly fee on the kit until it is paid for. Then next year charge you for the anual fee.

So I would send everything back and cancel the wesite fast. Follow there direction to the letter or they will deny they received it.

Best of luck
