Complaint Review: Vine Vera - Chatsworth California
Vine Vera Unauthorized charges to Wells Fargo credit card .False claim Dr. Oz was owner. Skin damaging. Chatsworth California
*Author of original report: apology to Deborah Longwill
Ii was duped in Miami Dadeland Mall, Fl. by a seemingly friendly, yet devious rep. for Vine Vera. I was jumped at and begged to have a product demonstration. I agreed and their product worked to temporarily smooth lines, but I later realized (next day) that it was a glue using harmful chemicals. The temporary lifting was encouraging and I wanted to purchase but the prices of thousands of dollars was crazy. The rep. kept fluctuating the numbers by hundreds of dollars and threw stuff in free. I agreed to a certain price after I was told Dr. Oz was an owner of the company.
She took my credit card and charged an extra $200.00 without my authorization. As I was checking my receipt she was all over me making sure I didn't notice the over charges, and I did not have my reading glasses available. Because I trusted the environment and the temporary lifting I didn't double check the charges right away, only after I felt and saw the ravaging effects of the product on my skin. While I was experiencing this situation I noticed two other reps pulling over elderly victims to their scams.
I never realized how these mall pods can be irrereputable, and are able to escape accountability because they are independant and only pay rent to the mall. Vine Vera has figured out a way to lie, scam and cheat people shopping in a place they consider safe. However, it is illegal to overcharge your credit card without authorization and they need to be held accountable. I have every intention to bring this up with my bank and because this company is not legit, they do not allow refunds. I feel stupid to have believed all their crap and feel this mall rape needs to be stopped.
Vine Vera targets older people because their product has a temporary effect, but the next day you see the chemical destruction on your skin. I believe it could be a discrimination issue with a deliberately harmful product, lying reps, a seemingly safe environment trapping off-guard elderly victims. I've read other blogs that list the same disturbing details about Vine Vera and the unconscienable company reps. Dr. Oz needs to be informed that his name is being tied to this fraudulent company.
