I was also contacted by a person telling me my daughter ordered sat prep material. I paid $119.99 for a cd and was given a web site for information on scholarships and grants. The web site does not exist but I was told I would be charged $49.95 a month for access to this site until I canceled. How do I cancel a service that I can't even access? I have been scammed!
I fell for a scam concerning my daughter and her preparation for the ACT test. Someone from the SAT/ACT prep center phoned my home and told me my daughter indicated through school that she wanted their product to help prepare her for the SAT/ACT test. I ordered the product. When my daughter came home from school and knew nothing about this product, I went on-line and discovered all the complaints about this company. I called and canceled the product. A few days later, my credit card had already been charged and I didn't even have the product yet. I called back and they said they were sorry, but told me to return the product when I received it and they would credit me. That was in October and I have yet to receive credit. After 4-5 calls and getting no where, I finally went through my credit card to get a refund. Hopefully, they will have better luck dealing with these frauds!
