SeattleCoffeeDirect Complaint - Ripping People Off - Coffee

Review by kangaroo48 on 2009-05-22
MONSON, MASSACHUSETTS -- Unauthorized charges on my credit card. I to was supposed to pay only $5.00 for the promo offer of 2 bags and 2 mugs and a travel mug.. Turns out they stole $25.00 plus 2 days later charged my account an additional $38.95. I never received anything from them.

To stop the charges I had to put a block on them from my bank, cancel my card and have a new one issued.

They answered my email and said they would refund the money. They NEVER did.
People beware, do NOT do any business with this company! Here's there email. Good Luck. hope this helps someone.

Go to Costco and buy a huge 2.25 lb. bag of Magnum Coffee for $15. No S&H, lots of flavors and it tastes great.
