Video Professor Complaint - Classic Bait and Switch - With a Twist (Beware!!!)
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- BAIT = On TV they tell you that the video is free, just pay shipping and handling.
SWITCH = However, only the software they discussed on the TV would be free. They ask you what software package you want, and start talking on and on about various titles. Once they persuade you to select a title that was different from the FREE title, the FREE deal offered on TV is gone.
THE CATCH = Then they bill your credit card if you don't return them within 15 days. Oh, that's 15 days from the day THEY mailed the package, so you really only have about 5 to 7 days. Now instead of getting hit for only the $6.00 shipping and handling, they will hit your credit card for another $189.00.
Oh, and then they want to continue sending new titles every month. If you don't send the new titles back, it is another $189.00! They have a very poor attitude, and are not willing to help once they have your money.
I called my credit card company, they seemed to be familiar with the practices of this company. They recommended closing the credit card and opening an new account to stop them once and for all.
