The Hydroxytone Trial Debacle

I had seen this advertisement for hydroxytone on TV for a few months.  It was given away to celebrities at the awards.  I went online to read about it.  It had good reviews.  I thought I would order a trial.  It was only $1.99 after all, what was there to lose?  So, I filled out all the boring details….long as they were! Hit the submit button, only to be denied my unwrinkling! They said I forgot something or other on my form, so I went through all the whole ordeal AGAIN, but……when I did, I read some small, tiny, miniscule print on my way through to the one thing that I forgot, which by the way was my my phone number. 

Well, I read that once you order this, for $1.99, they have your credit card number.  Then in a month, they will ship you without your approval, well, I guess you have approved it, by purchasing the trial only you wouldn’t know this unless you had a magnifying glass to read it in the beginning, another order of the cream for $141.00!  Well, when I read this, I was so glad that the error occurred, I quickly erased all my information and hit the cancel button. 

But the nightmare didn’t end here.  Later that night, hubby and I were watching TV, I got a call on my cell phone.  I didn’t recognize the number but answered it anyway.  It was the a man from this company. He saw that I had canceled my order and wanted to know why.  I explained why.  That I like to be in control of my bank account and not have anything taken out whenever.  I adamantly told him over and over NO I don’t want their product.  HANG UP!

The next day, looking over my bank stuffs online, I see a debit for what else: $1.99!  From HYDROXYTONE!! The guy charged my account, which I don’t know how the heck he got, or how he got my phone number either!  I call the company, and they tell me, “I’m sorry, we’ve already shipped that order.”  I was soooo mad.  I felt like  someone stole from me.  Just because I hung up on him, he probably got mad and charged my card. 

Well, two can play at that game.  I called my bank.  I stopped payment on my card.  Ordered a new card.  Called the stupid company back, told them to cancel my account.  They told me I had to return the bottles of cream.  Yeah like that’s going to happen.  I never ordered them!  I guess the laugh will be on them when they go to charge my card next month when it comes time to renew!  The funny thing is, I got the cream in the mail, and it is good cream and I think it does work!  But do you think I will EVER order from them?  HECK no!  I will order it on EBAY, it is way cheaper and I can get when I need it.  It is a fraction of the cost.  So there, Hydroxytone, stick that in your cream!
