The come-on for this scam was for "free" flashlights - only pay shipping.  That was ok, but there was also the sign-up for a newsletter which would be $40 if you don't cancel in 10 days.  No problem so far.  Where it started coming apart was that there was a delay in getting the flashlights.  So, instead of getting them within 2 weeks as originally stated it was closer to 2 months.

When I got my credit card bill i saw the $40 charge so I called to cancel.  I was told the charge was non-refundable, so ok, I guess, but cancel everything going forward.  Yesterday I got my credit card statement and saw that I was charged again, so I emailed to tell them I was double charged.  No response.  Today I called to tell them I was double charged and found out this worthless newsletter is $40 per month and non-refundable.

$40 per year would be a serious stretch, but $40 per month is a total out-and-out scam.  I would really like to get my money back, but I hope this keeps someone else from falling into that trap.
