Blair Rewards.com / Fraud and cheating
I've been victimized by the greedy b*******d's at BLAIR.com I've used them for many years, but more recently they've taken it upon themselves to share your personal bank information with ENCORE MARKETING a scam outfit that steals money out of your account. I say steal because they do this without authorization. To the tune of $14.98 per month. The charge appears as BLAIR REWARDS on your bank or credit card statement but apparently is run by another entity known as ENCORE MARKETING. When you phone BLAIR.COM they make you wait for several minutes before answering the phone and then get quite nasty with you about even complaining. And they then state that it was authorized by you. Talk about a scam!! I make it a habit to never sign up for any such add-on programs on any web site because they do have a tendency to surprise you with charges like this when you least expect it. So, and believe me I would know what I agree to online, I never signed up for this scam. But no one at BLAIR.COM gives a hoot whether you are upset about being ripped off by them. BLAIR.COM apparently has been taken over by some rogue characters in recent years and do not deserve any more of my business. What was once a decent company has become nothing more than a total headache. Trying to deal with such is like carrying dynamite through the door of a burning building. In other words, when dealing with BLAIR.COM you run the risk of having those dealings come around and bite you where the sun don't shine. I strongly recommend anyone considering dealing with BLAIR.COM be quite wary of their bad business practices. Check your bank or credit card statement faithfully for unauthorized charges and plan a course of action when it occurs. I say when not if it occurs because with BLAIR.COM AND BLAIR REWARDS it will occur if you deal with them. BEWARE!!!
