Avon - Avon scam

Posted: 2014-07-06 by    Anonymous82
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
Avon scammed me into receiving a discount on products if signed to be a representative.
They state you will automatically be removed by not ordering for two campaigns following your order.
They give you no copy of what you signing and promise to drop it off at a later date which does not occur.

When receiving your order, they send you products you did not order and then 2 months later send you a bill.
This is desperation and imagine if all companies were permitted to do this.
Avon needs to be stopped for their dishonesty and scamming ways and pushing...

Avon - Not supporting their Representatives

Posted: 2014-03-10 by    Representative
Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
I am an Avon Representative and have been bankrupted buying their products to facilitate customers. I am not even benefiting a dame or getting back what I spent for customers. I have been charged $57 fine after all my attempts to return a customers dress which costs $16. Management says they cannot help out in any way and I should pay this fine. This is highly inappropriate for troubling their own representatives who are actually Avon customers indirectly. Reps are their free advertisement agents and we reps spend out of our pocket to buy their brochures, sample products etc with no return on investment....

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 0 votes
This is not a complaint against the company (at this time), but about a very UNpleasant, rude, and dishonorable Avon rep in the Pleasant Grove area of Dallas. Her name is Valerie Lucas. I ordered a Wild Country soap on a rope in the C25 campaign, and neither the product nor the refund was ever given to me. I asked her for the refund the first time mid December. She failed to respond to several calls and texts from me, and did not deliver the product refund despite being reminded ahead of time of our Christmas Eve night meeting. She was very inflexible and unaccomodating. If I couldn't make...

Avon - Replacement/refund

I have sent a complaint regarding the bad service provided from the Avon rep.
I haven't had any response.
I purchased a dress on the condition if I needed a smaller size I would be able to exchange.
Once I paid for and received the dress (without a receipt) I tried the dress on, i then returned the dress explaining a needed one size smaller.
The rep then informed me that's not possible.
I gave her te dress and told her either get me a smaller size or refund my money.
That was over one month ago and I haven't been able to track her down.

Avon - Ohio - Not worth their weight in salt

Complaint Rating:  0 % with 1 votes
If you already have a main job and just looking to supliment your income than Avon is not for you. For one there is a $50 quota each week and if you do not meet that you make no commission. If you do sell at least $50 for that campaign then by the time you pay their one time standard fee that is over $6 and pay for their brochures than you've already lost money. When I first started I was pulled into paying for more than ten brochures and passing them out. Do not get pulled into this. The only people that are making money are the ones at the top. Avon is known for shipping defective products....

Avon Anti-Aging “Anew” Creams
The Food and Drug Administration recently warned Avon that it must stop advertising its Anew skin care products using language that makes them sound like they have medical effects. In a letter to Avon dated October 5, 2012, the FDA objected to anti-aging claims made about Avon’s Anew Clinical Advanced Wrinkle Corrector, Anew Reversalist Night Renewal Cream, Anew Reversalist Renewal Serum, Anew Clinical Thermafirm Face Lifting Cream, and Solutions Liquid Bra Toning Gel.

On the heels of the FDA letter, a class action complaint has...

I would just like to share with you today that Avon has lost a long time Avon customer. I have been buying Avon products since I was 14 years old (24 years ago.) I have always enjoyed Avon's catalogs and products. I loved Avon so much I decided to sell Avon in June 2011. I enjoyed selling, but just didn't have the time so ended my career as an Avon rep even though I was the top in sales for a new rep in December 2011. In approximately September 2011, a customer ordered a singing animal that arrived not working. I called customer service and they told me to THROW AWAY the dysfunctioning...

Jamie Gosser sells Avon and knocks on mine and my other neighbors doors 5-7 times a day. She called the cops I wasn't here but they went to my neighbors and reported we were drug dealers b/c we didn't buy AVON then the next week she called the cops over AVON directly she said that the neighbor hadn't bought AVON of of her. The cop said this is ridiculous and told us that Jamie Gosser had indeed called both times and we needed to make a formal complaint. I did to the apt complex hope it works.

I returned some shoes to my Avon rep about 4 months ago as they were too big. Wanted to exchange for a smaller size but they were out of that particular shoe. I gave the rep a different order of one to replace the pair that were too big. That pair cost a couple of dollars more, but I said, I'd pay the difference. I never got the other pair of shoes nor did I get a refund for the ones I returned to the Avon rep. I have been begging her for 3 months to give me my refund. I've contacted Avon, and they won't do anything. I wanted them to contact the district manager and have her contact...

I deposited three checks into my back account and one was return for insufficient funds. I have spoken to several Avon representatives and I have been told several different things I must do.

First, I was told to send my request for reimbursement to Atlanta, Georgia, twice I was told they were going to send it to the billing department for a credit on my Avon bill and they did not, lastly I spoke with a Mr. Colby Osborne from Avon...

I thought joining up with AVON would be a great idea, how wrong I was! I was charged an extremely high amount basically just to keep the account active, they force you into making an order a month even if you have no customers and then charge you a bunch of fees, there are only so many deodorants a girl needs before it's a little crazy! I was willing to put up with most of the craziness until I sent them a big return of stuff totalling more than $100 that they keep saying wasn't returned and yet other things in the same box were. Then they had the balls to say that I had to still pay them...
