WAR ON BIG BUSINESS - PROACTIVE
"so many times we are done wrong & seldom take the ime to act upon it"
My name is handell,
I have recently been done over yet again by another big business scam. This time it was Proactive (AKA - Guthy-Renker Corporation). You may have seen the commercial for a acne free kit a while back where the price is insinuated for a mere 19.95. What they fail to tell you is that its a monthly payment deal, then they keep billing you each month for 19.95. Most folks (i think) are getting this for there kids so the information is sometimes relayed from TV to KID to the PARENT to the CREDIT CARD to PROCTIVE pocekets.
If a busy person does not pay attention they would never know that they have just been ripped off by the choice of words developed by a whole team of marketing experts & lawyers. I mean how can you compete with an entire team.
Well Im accidentally noticed the withdraws on my statement & inquired about it. They told me that there was nothing could do about it. Then to boot, my son told me the product did not even work. So I was able to return it on the money back gaurantee premise. Well They only sent me back 1 of the payments so when I inquired about the other payment they have not answered any emails since.
This statement is to raise awareness of any scandalous big business corporations who in tough economic times have resorted to schemes against the public. I mean come on, as if making people feel ugly & selling them a useless product (praying on their weakness) isnt bad enough, some companies have to devise ways to bloodsuck us as well.
So the next time you buy a product that is run by a big business, please take heed of true intention behind the corporations is to make money, money, money. So if you are not paying attenton, you will on oaccasion & in shame get ripped off. A good way to combat this is to help me raise awareness of such scandalls is to share with friends, email friends, add to or repost this blog. Also check your bank or card statements periodically to be on the lookout for such activity. There out there folks & its up to us to FIGHT BACK!!!
sincerely the opinions of,
