Raw Materials Complaint - Do Not Get Scammed By This Product

Review by SCAMMEDandmad on 2009-03-30
CHAMPAIGN, ILLINOIS -- Raw Minerals had a ad which for the cost of shipping you could try out a sample of their product. Having heard a lot about this type of makeup foundation I thought I would try. What happened next is what made me so mad. The company did send me the sample, the proceeded to send me a full 3 piece kit at the cost of $66.45 without my permission, charging my credit card. I am furious. I called the company and this anger must happen a lot for they have a line specially for just this problem. People who received their product which out requesting it.

I was able to get an RMA without any problem to return the items however they would not return the cost of the shipping which totaled $6.95. I am so mad about this and want to warn everyone of the underhanded practices of this company.

A lot of companies have a "free" trial offer, but in order to get the so called free offer, you have to give them your CC number and then in the fine print somewhere it outlines the conditions in which they will begin sending you more product. Thanks for posting, this is a good reminder to all of us to read carefully before getting any free offers from any company. I had a similar experience when I ordered some Pilates equipment a couple years ago and didn't notice that I was also signing up for a free trial offer of a supplement.

You were not scammed. You simply chose not to read what you were agreeing when providing your financial information.

Just for fun, I went to two beauty sites offer this free sample if raw minerals. Both told me at least twice that I was signing up for regular shipments. right up front. I didn't have to dig or get a magnifying glass out.

Folks need to read before hollering about being scammed.

Thanx, Boki....I just get frustrated when consumers play the victim. There are too many REAL scams out there to claim scam when the real issue is a lack of reading.
