Viaprin / Scam
What men will do for the wood! I hear their ad on sports radio WFAN in NYC, and called to order. The woman (Erica) takes my credit card info and then immediately tries to sell me XXX Playboy DVD's, and 2 trial subscriptions to discount services for groceries, entertainment, travel, etc., telling me I can cancel any/all of these at anytime for a refund of the 1 or 2 dollars they hit my card for for each of these items, which turned out to be true. Yet, I never got the Viapren strips, They did, however, send me the trial DVD's(see the fun below) and the entertainment club brochures, which I cancelled immediately with no problems. But of course, the DVD club hits my card soon thereafter, 2 weeks before the "trial period" ends, for $38.99, a day before I received the trial items and I could cancel them! On top of all this, my bank cancels my check card due to the unauthorized hit from the DVD club! Now, I had to get a new check card from my bank and change every bill payment info I've ever entered on-line for auto payments, due to the change in the card #. Now, I have to call the dvd club, get a refund for a charge I never authorized, credited onto a new bank card I'd rather them not have any info about. Also, I've gotten about a half dozen new calls in the past month from more conspirators who have acquired my info, in attempts to sell me more entertainment/travel type discount services! And I STILL NEVER GOT THE VIAPREN STRIPS!(which I can see from all the hundreds of reviews do not work anyway). Now, Viapren disapears suddenly from the NYC airwaves this past month, and is seemingly replaced by the next product name you'll be reading scams about - STIMULEX STRIPS! It has the same basic commercial dialogue in it's ad, and the same promises for youthful sexual bliss and boners, once you place the strip under your tongue. This should DEFINITELY be examined and investigated by a federal agency, as it is an obvious (2nd!) attempt at fraud - probably by the same wise guys!
