    Online company warning


    (If I am breaking any rules please let me know and delete this post)

    I did some business recently with an online company called Suncoast Vitamins. They are located in Michigan. Ordered just a few things that I normally don't keep onhand. Mainly just to try them out. Had what seemed to be great prices. Got my order fairly quick too.

    Last night I was checking my bank account online to see if my paycheck had gone in yet, and I noticed this company had deducted $50 out of my checking account. I was furious. Went to their site to see what was going on. Pulled up my account, saw my only order. Everything looked ok, then I noticed the last line item. "Free 14 day membership" and "No Charge". But it was an active link. So I clicked on it. Basically, I had agreed to join their "Club" for $50 a year. They had to bury it in the fine print.

    I called them this morning and raised hell. They did credit my account back the $50 they took, but I had to threaten them with legal action.

    Moral of the story: Make sure you read the fine print when you deal with a new company.

    Just further evidence on why shopping away from Nutra is bad...

    Seriously though, that's fucked up. I'm glad to know you got your money back. You should contact your bank and place a block on their company.

    lol.. Yep. The item I was mainly after was out of stock at Nutra, but you are right.

    I hadn't thought about a block on my account. Thats a good idea. I have to go to the bank today anyway. Thanks man.

    No problem. There are only a handful of online companies that I trust enough to handle my debit/credit card. You just never know...

    I'm glad you chose to deposit your paycheques into your Nutraplanet savings account

    And Chub I'm glad you got your $50 back, that is very shady of them.

    those bastards for doing business like that, good thing you noticed and didn't get an overdraft charge because of it, I know a lot of people would not notice and they would come out smiling.
