internet rip-off

Post by tanzer2 »

I recently purchased a sample size of CBD gummies from SPARKLING PURE PRODUCTS for $39.97 online because they claimed endorsement from the Shark Tank program.. next day I got an email thanking me for my $309. purchase. I guess if I had read the very long list of fineprint I may have been able to opt out. THEY WOULD NOT TAKE MY IMMEDIATE CANCELLATION. I am hoping that RBC Visa will honour my request to reverse the charge, I had to cancel my card to avoid future charges. Buyer beware of this outrageous scam! Mel Garratt, Kelowna PS Sharktank never heard of them.

Just like every other "promotion" or "confirmation" email I get, emails like this just go straight into the trash and deleted forever.

If I want to purchase something, I'll Google reputable sources myself.

^^^That's why I deal with an above-board person who gives me a greatly reduced prices, if he charges me at all, on gummies, oil, and cream plus he absorbs any shipping charges. Cream works wonders on arthritic knees.

I was going to try some oil for my neuropathy in my legs. There was a deal on some supposedly to only pat the shipping.
Not only was I charged for more oil that I didn't ask for but I found that I couldn't take it with other meds I take.

Took a bit of talking with Visa to get the charges reversed but they finally did. The company that put the charges thru was a different name than the one I ordered from.

Anyone want a bottle of CBD oil? lol

Shop local ..

I "hear" there's a local company that extracts oils named Vitalis ..

I can't take CBD oils with my other meds. So no point in looking anywhere else.

There are many CBD oils that don't have the active ingredient of MJ. THC I think it is. The one I was going to try did not have any of that in it. Still not recommended when you are taking Blood thinners.

Yeah ..CBD is WAY different than THC .. But if it's not recommended , don't do it ..
