Diabetes Care Club Complaint - Preying On The Elderly
FRANKLIN TN -- I found over the years that the sales calls I receive from them are unrelenting, and as fast talking as a uswd car salesman. Some may view this as good business practice but I think it goes futher that that when dealing with the elderly.
I feel their delivery is intended to intimadate their client and push them into things they do not need at that time. I went to their web site to re-order (because I can't stand talking with them) and investigate whether or not I cound just order only test strips. Well sure enough, there appeared a means to "customize" your order. I proceeded to attempt to customize by pressing the "only" option button which was "order", and that was it! I wasn't sent to another page to place my order, I simply got a message "thanking me for the order". Well as angry as I was I figured I would just put the lancets which they would surley ship, along side the other 75 - 80 I had already, but it gets better.
Not only did I receive the test strips and lancets, but also a new lancing device, batteries for the meter, and testing solution. All of which were not necessary but they could bill Medicare & the insurance companies. (Gee I wonder why our rates are always going up?).
Is it illegal? Possibly! Is it another immoral business tactic to rape the system? Most likely.
To the executives at Diabetes care club, I say your drive for profits and greed are part of the reason this country is going down the toilet.
I feel sorry for you and your families!
