Cigarrest Complaint - Unauthorized Charges For Stop Smoking Materials

Review by File on 2007-12-12
VISTA, CALIFORNIA -- When I signed up for the Cigarrest Free Trial offer I was told that no further merchandise would be sent to me unless I requested it. Tuesday, 12/11/07, another package from Cigarrest was left at my house by UPS. I am returning it unopened and have had my legal adviser contact this unorthodox company in writing concerning charging my credit card without authorization to do so. I have also written to my credit card company and informed them that no authorization was given to Cigarrest to charge my card for anything but the $3.95 S&H charge for the FREE Trial Stop Smoking Materials, which by the way, DO NOT work!!

I would advise anyone looking to stop smoking to deal with their own medical professional and use products he/she recommends instead of being duped into a quick fix by false promises from companies like Cigarrest.

In Maine there's an organization that will work with you to quit smoking. It's called, "Partnership for a Tobacco-Free Maine." Perhaps there are other organizations in your area that do this? A friend used them to quit and absolutely raves about them.

At the bottom of their home page there is a link in very tiny type Terms and Conditions. If you read it you will see how you authorized more shipments. Also if you look again at the order form on the first page you will see mention of other terms that may apply. Unfortunately people don't read everything before hitting an order button. It's a cruddy way of doing business but that's how they get away with it.

There are a number of people who have quit using Cigarrest, just as there are many people who have quit using many other methods. Just because somthing did not work for you, doesn't mean it is useless and just won't work, period. The method which you finally use that works maybe didn't work for me, but I am not telling people that is is no good because it didn't work for me. I tried many, many ways to stop smoking from silver nitrate drops that made cigarette smoke taste really bad, through Cigarrest through other methods. November 14, 2006, I smoked my last cigarette and went through hypnosis. I have not desired a cigarette, no nervousness or weight gain. During intermission, I did what they suggested and smoked my last cigarette, threw about 2/3 of a pack away, and went into the session. An hour and a half later, I was a non-smoker.
