American Laser Centers Complaint - Crooks - Gift Certificates
COLUMBIA, MARYLAND -- I had an appointment at American Laser Centers in Columbia, MD today. When asked about their online ad for a free trial of velashape, it was valued at $250.00 per session they said they don't know why that price is on there, it's actually valued at $500.00. I said I'll do microdermabrasion, they told me about my options and my price $838. I presented them with a gift certificate $500, they agreed to take it, but I still had a balance of $338 that they wanted now, so I told them I have another gift certificate, that's when they said, oh we have to call our Manager to authenticate the certificate.
They didn't have to authenticate the first one when I had to pay $338 extra, but when I presented a second gift certificate of $500, they started saying they could not fulfill it because the company had closed down a year and a half ago and they wanted a receipt. They wanted to know who gave me the certificates, I gave them the name of the person, she actually got the certificates for referring friends to their centers, but did not use them and gave them to me.
