Melaleuca — scam and watch your bank account
My husband and I had checked into Malalueca via an ad we found. We went through and online orientation and things sounded pretty good. My husband asked if this was going to cost us anything and we were told NO. The representative asked for our checking account info so that our "income" could be direct deposited into our account and at the end of the little orientation, we were then told it was going to cost us $29 to get started. We told this "gentleman" that right at the time we couldn't afford even that because I was only working part-time and collecting disability benefits and my husband wasn't working at all. We were barely able to afford our rent and that was why we were looking to make money in other ways. The following week Malelueca withdrew $53 from my account and when we called the company we were told they had permission. I never signed anything giving them permission and they were told AGAIN that we wanted nothing to do with paying them money. The very next month $53 again was taken from my account and I went to the bank and closed the account, my bank is now going after the company to get my money back. I recieve at least 1 phone call per DAY from the company telling me my account number is invalid and each day they are told the same thing "I want nothing to do with your company and the account is closed" Today I am told they sent a package of over $60 to my old address and they can't take the money from my account because it is invalid...what does it take to get it through their heads? I have not lived at that address for over 2 months, closed my checking account, told them right were to stick their company and they still don't get it. BEWARE...don't get involved or you this is what you will be going through. It started out quoting $29 and in 3 1/2 months it is now $60 that they have been trying to scam us out of. I have had to open another account, change my direct deposit, had bounced checks because of them taking money out of my old account, been evicted from my home because I couldn't pay the rent due to the bounce fees and the money this company took without my permission. Please be careful.
