Rapid Reading Institute - Pennsylvania, Philadelphia / Unauthorized withdrawal from my banking account

DON'T BY ORDER THIS PRODUCT!!! It is a piece of crap, and their business practices are very shady. Hoping to recover an unauthorized charge against my checking account.

" Nevertheless, I immediately call their customer service phone number and...

Rapid Reading Institute - Pennsylvania, Philadelphia / Misleading offer, won't refund


Company advertises through Trialpay as a free offer (you pay shipping only). What is not made clear is that if you don't return the item within 15 days, you will be charged 69.00!! Which is what happened to me. Trialpay is alright: you can buy things and instead of paying for it (software in my case) you try one of their offers (rapidreadinginstitute in my case). But apparently Trialpay does not monitor who they do business with, because Rapid Reading Institute are dishonest. They tricked me into ordering their program, and "as much as we'd like to help, " they say they cannot accept the return.

Rapid Reading Institute - Pennsylvania, Philadelphia / Worst place on earth


I ordered a trial rapid reading cd. I was given an extended trial because by the time I received the item, the trial would have been over. I returned the item on March 3, 2009 via the USPS. I received a charge on my account on March 28, of $69.00. Tanya, an uneducated sounding sales person answered the phone. She refused to help me, and would not check with her warehouse to track the package. She then, would not let me speak with her superiors. I have info from the Post office saying this company has received the package at least a week ago.
