While browsing the AARP web site, I came across an advertisement for LifeCell. It offered a free sample of their product for shipping and handling of around $5.00.
I used my credit card to order the free sample and within two minutes I received a call from my credit card company fraud alert department that my credit card had just been charged $4.99 shipping by LifeCell and one minute later my card was charged $189.00 by LifeCell again. I authorized the shipping fee, declined the $189.00 fee and at the advice of my credit card company canceled my card for a new one. It's sad that this company is allowed to prey on seniors who would need an attorney to read the fine print in their preamble of rules and fine print that allows LifeCell to charge their credit card $189.00 each month.
Sounds like a scam to me. I alerted AARP that they should screen their advertisers for scams and sent a letter to the Federal Trade Commission.
Reason of review: Problems with payment.
