Proflowers Easy Saver Rewards / Deceitful Practices

I discovered a charge on my American Express bill from a company known as Easy Saver Rewards Program for $14.95 a month. I thought this was a charge for my internet service due to it being same amount. The charges continued from at least June 2007. When I called Easy Saver Rewards, they indicated that I was "signed up" for the service when I checked a "free shipping" box on an order with Pro Flowers. Pro Flowers substantiated the way in which enrollment in the Easy Saver program occurred and referred to my checking the free shipping box and adding my zip code was my electronic signature and acceptance.

I canceled the "Easy Saver" program participation and demanded a full refund. I alerted American Express to the scam. I also have canceled a recent order with ProFlowers and notified them that they have lost a repeat customer. Any company which uses personal information for automatic enrollment in another company's service is engaging in deceitful business practices.

    Subject: Pro-Flowers Deceptive Practices?

    On 15 May 2009 I placed an order with your company. My credit card activity showed the order placed with Pro-Flowers as well as two charges to a company named Easy Savers. When I called the 800 hundred number listed next to the Easy Saver charges I was told that by ordering from Pro-flowers and clicking on the free gift box that was on the screen after I placed my order I approved the charges. When I explained that I did not knowingly do that they agreed to remove the charges from my credit card. I consider myself a well educated senior citizen and pretty vigilant about scams but this one fits into the deceptive category. How could you, Pro-Flowers, you tricked me into a credit card charge with a free gift offer?

    This morning I visited your sight and you have two such things lurking on your order page, Easy Saver shows up when you click the box that say "Gift For You Click to Claim" and still another company name shows up when you click on the "Congratulations: This order qualifies for a Free Shipping Rebate." God only knows what would be charged to my credit card if I clicked on that link.

    I had always loved your flowers but now I am even afraid to visit your site for fear that I will entrap myself again. Are you so desperate for profit that now you must be so deceptive?
