Holsted Jewelers / Stole money from my debit account-theft

Phone: Holsted

I received a post card supposedly from Catalog Favorites, that as such a good customer-at Catalogs, they were offering me a free garnet ring--just pay 6.05 for shipping. I received the ring--but on 5-18-11 saw that Holsted had taken another 60.40 for a ring I had neither ordered nor wanted. I contacted Holsted and they told me I could get my money back after I had received then returned the ring to them. I want nothing to do with that bunch of thieves--all I want is my 60.40 and treble damages if applicable. Deb Orr-Flint, Mi.

    How does a person take care of this ? Who do you report this scam to? I didn't order these additional pieces of jewelry and told them not to send anything to me so how do I end this? A Senior in MN

    This comment is for JazzyCat23. I too have received the postcard for 2 free rings. There is no statement, anywhere on the card that says a person is joining a jewelry club. I have looked on the front, middle, and back, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! I must also remark about your comment that people are greedy. In this time and age, it is really a nice thing when a person is selected to receive something free. Our economy is so bad that we have to count even our pennies to maintain our livelihood. It saddens me tremendously that you are such a critic about someone wanting a free gift only to find that they are ripped off. If these companies will do as they promised and not try to scam people, then our world would be a better place to live in and just maybe our economy would not be in the state it is in now. If you think about it, use the example of: a coupon is sent in the mail from a new steak restaurant and it says if you come in to their restaurant you get a buy one meal and get the other free. When you finish your delicious steak and lobster meal, you pay with your credit card only to find out on your next monthly bill you are charged for both meals and for 2 bottles of fine champagne that you never drank. Would that not be illegal? Would you consider that greedy on your part for using the coupon? I think not. So when you get a postcard saying you are going to receive a free gift, is that greed?
    To my heartache, I will not call Holsted Jewelers for my free gift after reading these complaints. Thank you for taking the time to warn me (or us) about this scam. I will now throw my postcard in the trash!!
