Hydroluxe Hydroluxebeauty.com — wrinkle cream fraud scam
From what I have deduced this is the same scam as Abella Mayfair scam.
My husband, after viewing a video of two scientists allegedly on the Dragon's Den. Decided that i should give this product a go. Win-win $5 shipping FREE sample. Wife loses wrinkles. Too good to be true right!?
Well, $280 later ... I called Visa to have them reverse the unauthorized charges. Then i had the card cancelled. As it turns out this scam doesn't stop they will continue charging your credit card month after month. So the only out is to do what I did. DON"T take no for an answer from your credit card company. Get through to your credit card security department. THEY should be up to speed on these scams. I can tell you without doubt these companies lie and will NOT resolve the issue. Beware, they will string you along...long enough for more charges to occur. YOU MUST nip this in the bud ASAP.
I am a Computer Tech and did a bit of sleuthing. These characters create a brand and a web page. Produce a misleading but persuasive online campaign. Then once they're called out by enough people. They just start over with a new Brand. They use reputable other brands to endorse their product as they did in our case with CBC's Dragon's Den. Another scam is with a Costco survey.
Very annoying because my bank although they backed me up can't block scammers. Can't or won't? Google still takes their campaign money. And even CBC, a tax supported media company whose own good name is dragged about may do little to stop them. Why big corporations look the other way annoys me., .. so does the fact that my husband thinks I'm too wrinkly.

It appears this product is made by the same company that manufactures Reversaderm, Abella Mayfair, RejuvaEssence, LumaEssence TruBelleza, Skin Opulent, and several other brands.
