IONLINE Celebrity Sexy Lip Plumper / SCAM
A website I was visiting today had an article discussing the best lip plumpers around. There was a sidenote that upon visiting the webpage if you clicked the first star on the webpage you would get $50.00 off of the product and only pay shipping and handling fees. When I clicked on the link I was redirected to Celebritysexypout.com. When you click on the star at the top of the page, it says rebate offer activated and then lists 1 Lip Plumper (30 Day Supply)$0.00 (after $50 Rebate) + $4.99 S&H. After entering my credit card information, I was redirected to another page with instructions on how to claim my rebate AFTER I receive the item. I was then given a total of $54.98 and told that my charge would show up as IOnlineOrder.com. You are also entered into some kind of VIP Wellness Watchers program that will also charge you a monthly fee of $29.95. Their phone number is the only number given after checkout. When I called their number [protected], the gentleman asked where I had placed my order. I told him IOnline. He told me I would have to call another number [protected]. This number is nothing but a recording and directs customers to contact them via email with any problems, questions or concerns. After sending this company an email stating that I would like to cancel my order, I received a message stating someone would get back to me within 24-72 hours. I immediately called my bank to do a stop payment for this transaction. They told me I would have to come in and sign a form. My bank is 25 minutes away. I checked my bank account before I left and drove over to my bank. After 5 minutes with the teller, she told me they cannot do a stop payment because the amount has already been processed. I am extremely agitated and upset that companies like this can rip people off. I wish I had done research on this company before I ordered, as I have found thousands of complaints about customer service, no rebate, no refund after mailing the product back and even that the company changes its website to avoid having to refund customers. I now am faced with the decision of whether or not to close my bank account to avoid further charges. How are companies like this allowed to stay in business especially with so many complaints? Someone needs to put a stop to this immediately.
