Riddex Plus / They're a joke

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I got Riddex plus to get rid of bugs in my apartment, 2 months now and the bugs are still around. Now I have to smell the fumes of the spray. A company should not be allowed to sell a product without science proof about their claims. Instead of paid off statements from who knows who. I went to the site I paid to get the product to file a claim, there is no where to file one, tried to complain about this product to the 1-800 number I am told this number is for only ordering the product. I told them what I thought about the product anyway.

    Don't be a victim of Riddex Plus. I ordered the product on their website and was charged more than I wanted to order. They don't have an option to make any changes in their website to correct your order. Now after days of calling CS to cancel the order before it was shipped, they still shipped my order and when I complained they only gave me the unit price without the S/H fee. You do not want the hassle to get products from them. You can call their headquarters if you want to complain 866 813-4927 or send a complain to this address DRG - Riddex Plus 17250 Dallas Parkway Dallas, TX 75248 but believe me they don't care what you have to say after they get your money. I reported this to the BBB and they did not reply to any of their questions. Take it from me ...Save yourself the headache and let it be known to others about how they mislead customers.

    Riddex Plus is not a spray. It is an electrical device that plugs into your household socket. While it may work, (I have used Pest Offense for several years and it works really well) Dynamic Response Group-Riddex Plus is charging way too much for S/H. I just ordered Riddex Plus (2 sets) and was only told S/H was $8.99 per unit. Since they were being sold 2 at a time - that would be $8.99 for two you'd think. BUT NO ! Since I ordered two sets, I was charged $8.99 per device (4) for a total of $35.80 just for S/H!! When I called, they were willing to deduced only $17.50 from the $95.70 bill.

    The product I received from Riddex Plus was made in China, was marked with a company in Florida, has an address in Van Neys, CA and two more addresses in Texas!! Yeah, try to pin them down!

    I recommend you go to a hardward store and see if they carry something else. Don't get the sonic or ultra-sonic product. They might work in an empty room but don't work otherwise.

    Not a happy camper!

    They want us to believe it will work on bugs and mice yet they can not even provide a list of what insects it will and won't work on.

    I have Riddex Plus for some time now. I got it in winter and could not confirm whether it works. It does not work. I have roaches and mice evertime I turn on the lights. The unit that drives away pests attracts them. Roaches are always hiding behind the Riddex Plus unit. The Unit does not work. They are making tons of money through postage and ripping the consumer.

    I have 2 riddex plus units plugged in a 2 bedroom apartment. I still see bugs. Don't waste your money, keep spraying, you will have better results.

    Reddix Plus is a bogus company. I tried to order Riddex Plus some time ago. I made the purchase over the phone to get two units for the price of one. I even asked to have them rushed delivered from 7-10 weeks to 3-4 weeks. Yes. I agree that the shipping and handling price is rediculous, and for that matter, so is the rush delivery price. I gave in my credit card information and I didn't even get a confirmation number. So I called the customer service line to see if I could get a confirmation number. The guy hung up on me after asking me my name and address. I'm like "WOW!". I called back and I got a machine. I called back about 6 days later to follow up with my order. I finally got a human being on the line. I asked them if my order was processed, and that I wanted a confirmation number. They look up my information only to tell me that my order hasn't been processed yet. So they are sitting there holding my money but they haven't processed my order yet. I told them, just go ahead and cancel my order because I didn't get any good vibes from them. Now, I come across this website and see other people's comments. I'm glad I didn't waste my money on that product since so many say it doesn't work anyways...

    I purchased riddexplus. It advertised you could plug another socket into the it to avoid loosing a socket. I came on line to put a complaint in that I don't have that extra socket and saw the other complaints. I feel I have been ripped of also. How can this company continue to get away with fraud? Where is consummer protection laws? Let us all complain to 60 minutes for an investagtion.

    I bought 2 units and they do not work. I installed one in the kitchen and it attracts roches instead of driving them away. Anytime I pull the unit from the A.C. outlet, I see lots of life roaches hiding between the unit and the outlet. It is a scam. Unit does not work. I want ot return the units but do not know where to send them. Does anyone how to contact the manufacturer?

    Someone should probaby put this in front of a class action lawyer. Perhaps the company would then at least accept returns if not be put out of business.

    Well, to be fair, you all saw the shi**y infomercial complete with computerized and prop bugs, and STILL decided to buy this cra**y product. Let the records show that you all got duped. get over it, cut your losses and let this be a lesson to you all.

    So annoying to have to deal with companies like this. I too should have researched first but now just have to cancel my order I did online. After seeing the ridiculous final price they give you where the shipping is doubled per unit I realized it was not worth it and would find something else which I already did. I did not press the button that said "confirm order and get receipt" and tried to click on "remove product" but it would not let me. I was forced to click out of the website and just hope the product wasn't ordered since I never officially "confirmed" my order. Yet I still received an e-mail stating my "order has been received and is being processed." Lame. I got two similar plug-in devices for less than 20 bucks so now just have to deal with their customer service when the weekend ends. My card better not be charged for this I already see the transaction pending. Not worth 51.80 for 2 devices when they say one of them is "free." What a joke.

    Darn. I wish I had done my homework first. I am just feeling so desperate. I'm in a newly constructed home, but back up to a field. I think I'm infested and the smell when they die makes me sick to my stomach. Their droppings are everywhere. Are there any other solutions out there?
