Executive Decision Coaching / Fraud
I joined Merchant Circle some time ago. After getting a call today on my cell phone claiming that someone asked if I were verified, I went to my listing and initiated the “verify” process. I kept waiting to get a warning that there was a charge associated with the “verified badge.” There was none until after I had given you the names and email addresses for 5 businesses. Only then did you show me the nearly $35 cost associated with the “verified badge” that you had dropped in my shopping cart.
I have spent tens of thousands of dollars with online purchases and have never had a company just drop something in my shopping cart without expressly asking if I wanted it in my shopping cart, implying a purchase. I find your marketing techniques to be unethical and not in line with usual and customary internet based marketing principals.
