New tricks for an old dog.

Electronic cigarette Internet scam update

Summary –

The free trial offer is not so free if you fail to jump through the invisible hoops, as outlined in my recent post, Anatomy of an Internet scam.

It is possible to telephone within the two week period after placing your order, and cancel the future automatic credit card charges you may have unknowingly agreed to (Is that really an agreement?) The number I called was 1-877-766-5306, but it may be a different number for you. Check the details in your first order confirmation email.

It’s not easy, so be persistent. The customer service operators are trained to give you a had sell. If you do not call, your credit card will be billed $99.67 for the electronic cigarette “starter kit.”

The fist thing they do is to offer to extend your free trial period from 14 days to 28 days.

Just say, “No. I wish to cancel the order and return the starter kit.”

Then they will offer to drop the price on the starter kit from $99.67 to $39.67. 

Just say, “No. I wish to cancel the order and return the starter kit.”

Then they will offer, in addition, to drop the price on electronic cigarette refills from $31.95 to $21.95.

Just say, “No. I wish to cancel the order and return the starter kit.”

The final price is about in line with with other e-cigarettes cost from other companies. But, it is my advice that you do not do any business with this company, even at the reduced price. If they try to scam you once, they could easily try to scam you again.

 Just say, “No. I wish to cancel the order and return the starter kit,” and then actually return it promptly. Keep your proof of mailing.
