The #1 Electronic Cigarette? Yea, sure.
Well, here’s another e-cigarette scam to announce to those researching e-cigarettes on the Internet. If you’re here because you’re seeking information, we urge you to read this, and other scam alerts here in Spinfuel eMagazine.
ECIG AID joins the ranks of such infamous brands as Regal, VaporLift, XOCigs, Prada, Emerald LUX, and all the other brands playing this con on unsuspecting victims.
Here’s the deal in a nutshell.
You place an order for their Starter Kit. You pay $4.95 for shipping and the clock begins as soon as you click the Submit button. From this moment on a 14-day Trial Period kicks in, by the time you receive the starter kit you’ll have a day or two to decide whether you want it or not. If you do not make contact with this company within that 14-days (or two days if you’re lucky) your credit card will be charged $109.67 FOR THE STARTER KIT YOU THOUGHT YOU PRUCHASED FOR $4.95.
Then, 30-Days after you placed your INITIAL ORDER, or rather 14-Days after the trial period ends, you will be charged another $69.62 for 4x packs of crappy tasting Chinese e-Liquid filled CARTRIDGES.
Do you think you’re buying a 2-piece e-cigarette kit? You’re not. You’re buying a 3-piece e-cigarette and your starter kit will include One Battery, One Atomizer, One charger and 5 CARTRIDGES. Never mind that they are showing CARTOMIZERS in the photos, they are describing the parts as an Atomizer and Cartridges.
Here’s the wording:
“We will immediately send you a Starter Kit which includes one extended battery, one atomizer, USB charger, one pack of cartridges.”
“you will be sent a new supply of the Product containing 4 packs of cartridges, (A total of 24 cartridges)
Are you a Victim? If so, here’s what you need to do:
- Contact your bank and explain the situation. Tell them that ECIGAID showed a photo of a 2-piece e-cigarette and that when the product arrived it was a 3-piece e-cigarette. Tell them you never authorized the purchase of a 3-piece e-cigarette nor did you know that you were going to be charged $109.67 days later for that $4.95 Starter Kit.
- Ask you bank to reverse the charges, cancel your card and send you a new one.
- Come back to Spinfuel and explain your story so that others can learn from you.
- Then read some of our reviews and choose the right e-cigarette for you. Spinfuel has NO affiliations with any company, we do not make dime from any brand you purchase.
- Still need help deciding which e-cigarette is right for you? Join the Spinfuel Forum and ask the forum members. They will be happy to help you choose what’s right for you.
- Never ever buy anything on the Internet without reading every word on the website.
- Pass the URL to this article, and/or other Scam Alerts in Spinfuel eMagazine. The only way we are going to be able to stop this scam is to make sure everyone knows about them. All of them.
