They had a phrase of “income for life” as an attraction. To receive information, pay $5.00 with my debit card. I did so, and they sent me an email that they would send me a welcome letter with all the information to access the letter on line. I check my email and read everything everyday and I respond when I’m interested. I never thought anything more about it until about a month and a half later, I have a $92.50 draft from my checking account from Lombardi Publishing Co. I called them to find out the reason for the charge; since they had my account information and I asked how they got my bank acct. . They told me I hadn’t called within a 30 day time frame to cancel. I wanted to know what I was supposed to cancel since I hadn’t ordered anything. They informed me I had ordered a news letter and that was the charge for 6 mos. I informed them that I would never consent to a charge of that amount for any newsletter, and to put the money back into my account. They told me it was over 30 days and they couldn’t return the money. I raised a big stink so they agreed to put the money back into my account within 10 days. I told them to put the$5.00 back into the acct. also but they said they couldn’t. When I told them they would or I was going to report them to you guys as being scammed. After deliberation with a supervisor they said they would give the 5 back also. The time has passed and the money isn’t back in the acct. yet, so I called them back today and had to go thru the whole thing again finally got them to put the money back in the bank within 48 hrs. but this other guy I talked to refused to return the $5.00. It’s not about the $5, it’s the principle. They dupe you into giving your card with a low cost (unrefundable) attractive phrase. Then they don’t send the second email with the instructions. The next thing you know they are charging you $92.50 which they say they can’t refund because it is past the 30 days in which to cancel the order which you never got. BIG SCAM. .
