Smoking Everywhere Complaint - Smoking Everywhere 'Free' Sample Fraud

Review by stopthegreed on 2010-07-23
"Free" offer is not free! These electronic cigarette companies take your credit card number for shipping then bill your account for over $100...and then keep deducting money. Impossible to get a hold of them by phone. Banks don't care and won't stop the withdrawals. A complete financial nightmare!!!!

Anytime a free offer, no matter what it is, wants your credit card number, the free deal is off.

What was the free offer anyway?

I don't believe much in their product, either. Website in China, maybe? I'd cancel the card pronto.

Never, never, NEVER give out your credit card number for a free sample. If anything can be learned from this site, that should be it.

Electronic cigarettes, and their flavor cartridges, need to be sold, conveniently, at local stores alongside the Marlboros and Camels. The "e-cigarette" is a good way to get a smoker to quit (some of the flavor cartridges are nicotine-free), or to satisfy the need for a smoke in a "no-smoking" environment, since these devices emit water vapor instead of smoke. Making a lot of products (such as e-cigarettes, colon cleanse products, "miracle" diet pills, etc.) that are currently sold only online available locally will help prevent a lot of credit card fraud. These companies can make even more money selling their products at Walmart, Kroger, Walgreens, and CVS than charging credit card customers for so-called "automatic shipments" that are overpriced to begin with. As far as I know, I don't think any e-cigarette product is sold in local stores, but making them as conveniently available as cigarettes would help their sales more.

for these types of offers, one needs to cancel during the set period of time.

I wanted to just say i recently also got scammed by the Smoking Everywhere/Smoke To Live company for $140.00. The brand Smoking Everywhere is the same as Smoke to Live. Do not be fooled it is exactly the the same product in a slightly different box. The box you get now at the malls in called Smoke To Live.They do this to avoid all the negative reveiws of the Smoking Everywhere brand. The brand Smoke to Live buys the product from Smoking Everywhere, and slaps the no refund on the product. But if you go to the Smoking Everywhere website they offer the full refund. I think this compant is in violation of the Unair competion Law made to protect the consumer from being confused about a certain product. Thanks scott
