Stages of Beauty - I will report them to the Better Business Bureau and the police

Complaint Rating:  100 % with 9 votes
I saw an ad for a free sample if i paid the postage $4.99 had to use debit/credit card number, got sample ...over priced if you wanted to order. Thought that was the end of the deal but...no, rec'd package with a larger bottle of the same stuff (1 oz.) and my checking debit/Visa card was debited for $74.88. !!!

I did not authorize this charge and I did not order the product they sent me. If they do not reimburse me...I will report them to the Better Business Bureau and the police.

This is a scam!!! Do not deal with them....

I only wanted the free sample and pay for shipping only. They sent out another in October. Shipping document said $0.00 charges so I didn't think anymore about it. I called this morning because this company took out $74.98 again and told them that I never received it. They told me to take it up with my postal service. I told them not to send anymore that I didn't want more than the first sample to try and that they didn't state it would continue sending monthly and billing my debt bank card....

I signed up for trial offer for $4.99 ON 3/22/2012 AND received a trial size of the product. There was no cancellation information on the website I ordered the trial from. Today, 4/9/12 I have a charge for $79.87 from these people (FCF stagesbeauty) that I did not authorize. Neither have I received any additional products. I want my money back now! I see that I am not the only one they ripped off. This is sickening to me! Friggin' theives, they are!!!...

Stages of Beauty - What a scam!!

I, too ordered free trill and then received $74.99 package. I didn't even open box. I am furious! No phone number on invoice. I called 877-869-3162 and, of course, waited for someone to answer. Rep was very sweet, yet I was furious. First, she offered a discount to keep it and my answer was NO..then she said she credited me back and cancelled my account and THEN told me to keep the product to make me happy. Happy? Never will I be happy with this company. I also called Amex to not pay. I do not trust this company....

Stages of Beauty - Tricked and unhappy

They were not upfront with sending you more product automatically-to the tune of $74.98. I had not even had time to trial the sample when the first box came. I called to cancel the product without opening the box, but they said they had already shipped out another box, and it hadn't even been 30 days. Since they had already shipped a second box were unable to refund the box I hadn't even opened yet, giving me a $40.00 refund-but that doesn't cover the other $35.00....

Stages of Beauty - Duped

I too was duped, I just wanted to try the sample. There was no mention of becoming a member of a beaty club. I received another box. I thought it was a mistake. Then another box came, this is when I went online for confirmation of what was going on with this company. I then went to my credit card company to find I was charged $74.98. I still have the two bottles which I'm returning as I have contacted my credit card company with a dispute. Shame on this company with there deception!...

Now I will need to take time and paid for return postage....

Very fraudulent advertising of a free sample which turns into a monthly chage of 75.00 VERY persistent customer sevice actively avoiding my attempts to cancel. My advice is report the charges and company to your credit card, in most cases they will block further charges and refund the $75.00....

Stages of Beauty - Fraud

' Stages of Beauty ' based in Cambridge, MA offered a free trial size of their face cream which I decided to try. I received it just the day before going on a trip. There were no ingredients listed on the product, and being health conscious, I never use anything when a company does not disclose the ingredients they use in their products, so I threw it out, figuring I only wasted $4.99 for shipping & handling, and that I was done with it. When ordering the 'free trial' I did not see the clause about autoshipping one jar every month if I didn't cancel within 18 days of receiving...
