Shame on me. I don’t want you to make the same mistake so please read about my debacle. I’m so mad I’m shaking.
I just got robbed, flogged and defrauded, and I’m furious. Write this name down and don’t EVER deal with them: ww.advancedwellnessresearch.com
After you’ve been robbed by these people in cyberspace, you have no recourse, because no one in the company speaks English!
Here’s what happened: I was reading a testimonial from a woman in Nettleton, Mississippi, who was raving about a tooth whitening project she had ordered and had wonderful results. I figured a “Sustah” wouldn’t lie. You could order a trial size for only $4.99 to cover the cost of postage and handling.
Stupid me – but $4.99 sounded like it might be worth the risk. NOT! The project came a couple of weeks ago and I haven’t even opened it. This morning I was paying some bills on line and discovered the “advanced wellness research center” had drafted my account for another $78.93!
I haven’t even ordered anything else and didn’t intend to. I called three times and each time got some Eastern or Asian person who didn’t understand me and I couldn’t understand him. In fact they had added an interesting touch – there is a three second delay, so you hear yourself repeat what you just said while the operator is blabbering away in some unknown, probably dead, language. Very confusing and probably designed to be so.
They won’t even offer a refund if I return the unopened package. Supposedly I signed something that said I had 14 days to try the project. My stupidity for not reading more carefully, but I never heard of any company that wouldn’t refund your money if the product has never been opened.
Bottom line, I’m out $83.92 and I’m probably going to have to close my bank account which means it’ll take forever to reload my automatic drafts. I pay everything on line.
Hell, I may go back to using paper checks or keeping money under my mattress. This company markets all kinds of “wellness” projects – but as far as I can see they are the only ones getting well by extorting $80 from honest people.
For sure I’ll never order anything on-line again and certainly not with my debit card. That was beyond stupid.
Please forward this to everyone you know and let me know if you know of someone I can report this to or if you’ve had similar experiences. It’s “companies” like this that give reputable firms a bad name.
