TINNITUS 911 (General Discussion)

by Thirsty @, Friday, May 11, 2018, 19:30 (70 days ago)

Only because it is quiet, did anyone beside me fall for PHYTAGE ad to improve hearing with their natural way. I fell for it and bought a two month supply. They told me that if I buy 10 months, they would be 1/2 price, and if not happy they they would give a full refund.

Well, they billed me a lot, so I called them and they said if I was not happy, would I settle for half price? I said OK, but I want a check sent to me, and it was promised. They did not send a check, but they did credit my VISA card for less than 1/4 of what they promised over the phone. Now I am afraid to send it all back.

A close neighbor told me that she had gone with TINNITUS 911 snd it did not help at all.

What should I do?

Good luck, I'd say you are out of the money you paid.

Chalk it up as a lesson learned and try not to be a repeat offender.

I will never give my credit card number over the phone again. I cancelled this card which I have had for over a half century.

Guess it was just time for a new one. Sorry you had to experience that!

One more thing to watch out for. Magazines are giving the option of automatic renewal...just give them your credit card number. Some even just do it if you used the card to order the first subscription. That's the reason I just got my new card. No way to stop the auto renewal.

So you mean you can't even stop them by contacting them? I really think it's terrible how they are doing it!

Last week I received a Reader's Digest with a billing, and I know I didn't buy it, because:
1) They are very small and just filled with ads.
2) My husband was the one who read them.
3) I do not have time to read magazines.
4) I stopped renewing magazines nearly 2 years ago.

That is a dirty 'trick' many companies will send to senior-ish citizens. Send them a bill for something they didn't order and because we can be so forgetful and have been so dedicated to PAYING our bills and keeping our credit good, we automatically pay them. This has been going on for years. Elderly people would tell me, 'I don't remember ordering this stuff', but would have me make checks out for them to sign and have me mail it for them. Dirty rotten scoundrels!

I have taken the Readers Digest for 60 yrs., but may quit, seems the writers of the stories and the stories are not that good anymore.

Sparky.......I used to have a subscription to a 6X year organ music book. Every two months it would cover the 'season' with appropriate music and was always interesting to listen to and play. Recently I looked online and checked out a couple sample pages from current books and couldn't believe how ho-hum the music was. Not much of a challenge and it was just plain boring!! I wonder if this dumbing down is a trend in all the skills?

Probably is or maybe we have changed too.

Dumbing down. Those two words just might explain a few things I've seen and read. Cars that you set on driverless and then read your newspaper flying down the road at 70 miles per hour and trusting that the electronics in the car will save your life. Well, somebody would have to explain to me why those cars are crashing when they are not suppose to. Me, I want the control, because no driverless car can drive the other persons car which we have to do each time were out on the road.

Read yesterday that these push button start things in a lot of new cars are actually killing people and making a lot more sick. Carbon Monoxide, because the driver just thought they turned the engine off. Ya, I know, who in their right mind wouldn't notice the car is still running. The point is, electronic things that are suppose to make life easier are "dumbing us down" using convenience as the reason to have this stuff.

Amen to all that you said, Wheels! I wouldn't trust them either. And I'm not a control freak, I too am just smart enough to know that a car should not be driving itself. How lazy (and foolish) can a person be to trust the car? I don't even fully trust the car when I am driving it, because the computers or anything else can go bad, or even a tire can blow.

IMPORTANT UPDATE ......

I will not bad mouth the company as they did give me full amount that we had agreed upon. One half came from Texas and the other half came this morning from New York.

Very glad to hear that, Thirsty! But I'm sure you agree that the "buyer beware" warnings still apply to all of us. Been there, done that.
