Holsted Jewelers / Fraudulent Charge

1 United States Review updated:

Received a cubic zirconia ring and earrings in the mail along with a letter stating that I have no obligation to buy anything now or in the future, but a new selection will be sent in about 5 to 7 weeks and I will be billed $39.99 plus S & H and taxes for each new piece I decide to keep and if not totally happy with anything, I could return it for a replacement or credit. I never even heard of this company. I immediately called my credit card company and they told me I already had two transactions for $5.99 each from Holsted Jewelers. They cancelled the card immediately. Am reading now that this is happening to so many people. Watch out!

    Thank you for these e-mails. I received notification from Chadwicks that they are sending me a gift from Holsted jewelers, and that all I'd have to pay is 6.99 shipping. I'm so glad I reviewed these first.

    I received postcard from Crossings Book Club indicating Holsted Jewelers was offering a Free Gift valued at over $50.00. All I needed to pay is shipping and handling. I am so glad I found this Web site. They can keep their FREE GIFT.

    Omg. So glad I found this website. I just got a postcard in the mail offering me two free gifts from Holsted Jewelers. I will be putting that postcard in the shredder! Thanks for sharing.

    They're at it still. Just rec'd a card indicating that my "Friends at HOLSTED JEWELERS" are sending me FREE rings because "We appreciate you!"

    Glad I googled it. There have been a couple of other times when I should have, specifically with "Avesil" for weight loss.

    Be prepared, but don't get cynical.

    I too, out of the blue have received two shipments (both) rings from. Holsted Jewelers and find myself disillusioned with with company. After googling them and finding this complaint board site... I called them and told them straight up that I DID NOT want anymore products from them.

    I also told them that IF any additional charges other than the 6.99 each for these two rings show up on my credit card-I would NOT HESITATE TO HIRE A LAWYER. They assure me that as of today (8-29) that they have removed me from their list for any future shipments. The rings are ugly and poor quality...nothing that I would ever wear!

    they best take me serious... As I mean business. I will NOT fool around with these scammers...they best NOT fool with my credit. Everyone who continues to have problems with them-we can all use our social media/word of mouth to spread the word that they're problems!!! Tell EVERYONE you know. There is power in the word of mouth-I say we spread it like wildfire. Let's tell the world-the power is in our hands!

    I purchased a set of rings from Hosted Jewelers, paid the shipping and handling fees. They have now subsequently charged me over $200 for, I don't know what as I have not made any purchases after the initial and only purchase. I have emailed the company requesting that I be reimbursed for the charges that they made without my consent. I am upset that I did not see this website before I made the purchase.
