Patch Perfect Grass Seed / Fraud and cheating!

1 United States Review updated:

The actual shipping charges came to $13.90, which was two thirds the cost of the product. Their customer service department gave me a parcel post tracking number for my shipment which the U.S. Post Office said they had no record of! I am still waiting for the grass seed I purchased. I would not recommend anyone buying from this TV Scam!

    We purchased three double containers of Patch Perfect which came to $90.00 + because they charged shipping on ALL three containers even though they came in the same box! Grass seed DOES NOT GROW!!! No matter how hard you water and wish, NOT ONE BLADE of grass will show up!

    What a SCAM!!!! And I feel even worse for believing that there may be ONE HONEST internet seller! What a joke!

    The patchperfect seeds are nothing but colored sawdust. I followed the directions to the tee, only to have the seeds be eaten up by rats, mice, and birds. They don't say this on their TV ad, nor on the packaging. If something is too good to be true, it probably is. The Attorney General should shut this scam down.

    Please DON'T be smitten by this scam!

    PatchPerfect product is a SCAM. Do not purchase this product. The Perfect SCAM. They take rye seeds (10 ounces) at a price of about 40 cents (bulk). Then they colored it and market it with fancy TV ads via Eagle Eye Marketing, Inc., in CT. They charge $27.99 (even having incredibnle profits after adding one bag for free) and in 99.9% of cases they also double bill the customer. It is actually a DOUBLE SCAM. Do not even bother complaining to attorney generals, etc., because the scam is so perfect, organized and professional that it has the typical features of organized crime. Just do not buy anything in TV ads connected to internet shopping. There is no government regulation of it. It is a magnet for crooks. Many companies such as this are actually basing headquarters in British isles such as Anguila, Grand Cayman, etc, so they can not be reached by American laws.

    This is a straight up scam. I've never been so upset in dealing with a company as in Patch Perfect. They over-charged my account, by saying that I ordered 4 pkgs, when I only ordered one.
    I also informed them that thier automated service specifically stated that my credit card would be only charged for $27.98, and yet they had the audacity to tell me I must have made the mistake. Something has to be done about this.

    I ALMOST purchased the product. I had everything entered and ready to hit the "submit". Something told me to google this first. I removed all my credit card information and looked them up. THANK GOODNESS... All of you saved me a ton of grief. Thank you for taking the time to report this.

    Folks, remember this please. If anyone, including any business, on the internet or otherwise, refuses to accept a money order (cash equivalent) as payment for goods or services, I would think twice before doing business with them. Scammers will not accept this form of payment (money order) because then they would not have your credit card information so they could overbill, doublebill, etc. your account. They may say something to the affect that " we are'nt set up for that." No kidding...

    This product does not grow as well as 'seen on T.V.'
    I did purchase ( silly me) and followed directions carefully. I have watered twice a day for a month, about 10% of the area has a few shoots growing, the rest is bald. I am so disappointed as it was a last attempt at doing something with the front yard.
    This is a scam!!!and I am so mad at myself for falling for the sales pitch, and believing the ad that shows it growing "even on a cement block"

    I purchased the product and followed planting directions. No grass has appeared and it has been almost 3 weeks. I had better luck with regular grass seed last year that cost me $3.00. Bummer!!

    Thank you all! I am so sorry for the trouble you have gone through, but you saved me! At least you know your posting this info has kept Patchperfect from making more money on me and the others you have warned.

    The only thing I have ever bought off an infomercial that worked was (drum roll)... MY COLLECTION OF CDS FROM TIMELIFE. And they are awesome!

    I won't buy anything on one of those stupid 1/2 hour wastes of time.
