I have written an account of your scam on Face Book , hoping to deter any unsuspecting person from having the same experience I had. I am also sending a copy of this missive to SBY news in Salisbury , Md.
Two weeks ago, I saw a POP- UP page of gifts that were "Free" , if you paid the shipping.and available to anyone, just for filling out a short survey.
I chose a handsome watch , gave them my credit card number (big mistake).The shipping was $5.99.
About two weeks later , I received a watch , (no Rolex) but a free watch, none the less.
Thursday night. I checked my balance and was taken aback when I saw that $95.00 had been taken from my account , that day.
I didn't really sleep that well , however as soon as possible I got my bank on the , phone , The next am , co-incidentally the bank representative listen to my story and stated that she had the same experience recently. I had no recourse other than to call the company in CA.
After several hours of calls , and e mails , I reached a representative of Q watches
Basically , he tells me , I could not get a rebate (even if I returned the watch , still new).
There seemed to be small print that stated , if they did not hear from me ,within 14 days , following the $5.99 shipping fee , they would send the watch, and deduct the cost of the watch from my account.
They further stated that unless I requested them to cease sending me gifts ,they would send me something every fourteen days and bill me accordingly.
After telling them that I lived on a small SS income only and that the $101.00 represented a large loss for me. There was no sympathy forthcoming. I ended the call and told them to perform an act on themselves which is physically impossible : However being from CA. they might be able to perform the act, I requested).
I am getting a new card , and never using it on line.
Don't fill out any surveys....it is indeed ironic that when I signed on my computer , tonight , the exact offer was being broadcasted for all to hear, and see.
I have a watch for sale.
