Deep Sea Cosmetics Scam
TRUMBULL, CONNECTICUT -- I bought Dead Sea Vitalyze Eye Complex and Dead Sea Intensive Firming Eye Serum at the Westfield Mall in Trumbull, Connecticut. Boy did I get ripped off. The salesman coaxed me by buffing my fingernails. I told him I was not going to buy anything from the start. He proceeded to ask me if I minded if he put some eye serum under my eyes and then showed me how it looked in his mirror. He then proceeded to put on the Vitalyze creme. He told me that it was $169.00 a jar of each. I told him it was way too much. He showed me on his I-phone that the product was worth almost $300.00 and assured me that you couldn't get it for a cheaper price than at this kiosk. He said he would give me a deal and give me 1 jar for free. I agreed to it, thinking I was getting a great deal. - The purchase cost me $180.80.
I got home and looked it up on the internet and noticed I could have gotten both products for $50.00 or less. I cannot believe that this is allowed. My advice is do not buy any products from the Dead Sea Kiosk in any mall. You will definitely be ripped off. - Through research, I noticed that I am not the only one to be scammed by this company. - By the way, the product even makes my skin break out. I bought this junk at the mall in Trumbull, Connecticut aka Westfield Mall. Also, any reputable company would allow refunds if the product did not work or if the consumer was not satisfied with it.
I have both a handwritten receipt and a credit card receipt. The hand written receipt is stamped with a no refund, exchange only stamp on it. The credit card receipt is not. I was not told that at the time of purchase. I believe I have been scammed.
I asked for the entire purchase price refunded. I said I would return the product - especially because that it makes my skin break out. They denied my request. In my eyes, that is bad business practice. I learned my lesson and would just like to warn other consumers about this scam.
