colon 700 / Unathorized Charges
This company operates on line. They appear in your e-mail without an invitation. They offer a "free sample" of their product, but require a credit card number to cover a minimal charge for shipping and handling. At the bottom of their splashy ad is a link to "terms and conditions." Since the "customer" is only interested in the "free sample", and is not really purchasing anything, the "customer" does not review the "terms and conditions". The "customer" receives the "free sample" in the mail. He tries it out. It may or may not be of any health effectiveness. In my case, it was NOT! The "customer" throws away the bottle and believes that's the end of that. A short time later, the "customer" receives, through the mail, two full bottles of the ineffective health product and is notified that $88.97 has been deducted from his bank account via the credit card number the "customer" gave the company to cover shipping and handling charges. After a period of shock, the "customer" reads the paper work (not a receipt) that came with the products. He is told that, per the "terms and conditions' of the trial offer, he agreed to be automatically enrolled in their auto shipment program if the "customer" did not cancel within 15 days of having received the "free sample." He is given three options to cancel the program:
1) Cancel by visiting www.colonmed700.com/cancel. Note: this is the site referred to. I can not find
anywhere on this site to cancel this program...only the opportunity to lodge a complaint.
2) Call us at [protected]. Note: the phone rings forever...no one picks up, the music is dreadful.
3) E-mail us at Support@colonmed700.com (only during business hours). Note: You are required to get an
RMA number to return the product. Good luck!
This "company" (this SCAM) is a fraud to take your money! They are all the more despicable because they pray on the sick who are hoping that their product will make them well. Instead, they are ripped off for a minimum of $88.97. If the "customer" is too ill to fight them, there's no telling how much money they could be taken for. I only wish I could attach this message to their ad.
Your best hope of preventing these shysters from stealing any more of your money is to contact your bank and put a stop to their charges. These people make the internet a sad experience indeed!
