Healthy Online Services Complaint - Know Your Rights - Purity 12??????
I received a letter from Healthy Online Services claiming that I owed 124.95 for "Purity 12"? The letter provided was received from an address located in Scottsdale Az. and claimed that I participated in a no obligation 14 day free trail of "Purity 12" (Whatever That is). The letter further stated that failure to contact within 10 days would be met with negative reporting to the credit reporting agencies, which could negatively affect my credit. (BTW Federal Law allows a person 30 days to dispute a debt and I have never ordered anything with a claim of FREE - NO OBLIGATION. (SCAM ALERT)
I explained to DAMON (who claimed to be a manager) that I never participated in a free trail offer from the Internet, and that I had no idea what "Purity 12" was. I asked him what HEALTHY ONLINE SERVICES was and was told that it is a collection agency to recover debt. I asked him if HEALTHY ONLINE SERVICES had a license to do business as a collection agency. He wouldn't answer that question.
I advised him that I was an attorney and that under the FAIR DEBT COLLECTION ACT, I was requesting proof beyond a reasonable doubt (which does not include my personal information) that their claim was legit. He said because they had my name, phone number, email address and mailing address they felt the claim was legit. (WRONG). I requested their email address so a dispute letter could follow our conversation and was told that they "do not have one, but that they are only a branch of a business that attempts to collect unpaid debt." (THE SCAM AND THE CROOKS BECOME EVEN MORE TRANSPARENT).
I then advised Damon that if any of my personal information was provided to anyone ( i.e. collection agency) he and HEALTHY ONLINE SERVICES would become a permanent project of mine in court and that whatever he or the company had gained from committing their SCAM would soon be awarded to me. (HINT: They have already become my project)
After hanging up....I researched HEALTHY ONLINE SERVICES and learned of the many scams they have attempted on a number of innocent individuals. I wonder how many they actually get away with.
BOTTOM LINE: Don't pay them one red cent. You have rights, up to and including suing them for numerous violations of the FAIR DEBT COLLECTION ACT.
And DAMON, if you or any of the other associates of HEALTHY ONLINE SERVICES monitors this site. Your troubles with me have just begun. I vow to each of you that I will see you thrown in jail for computer fraud (to start) or to take all that you have acquired from scamming the innocent. I will ensure that the pain you have caused all is returned 10 fold. That is a promise. NEXT STOP 60 Minutes, who just recently did a story on collection agencies and their illegal practices - wonder what will think about this?
