Type of a scam Online Purchase
ABC’s for SAT/ACT College Examination called me telling me that my daughter, and named her by name, had signed up to receive SAT/ACT testing material at school. They would send DVD material and instructions for online Skype tutoring for $216.32. If not satisfied just return in the original package with a certain number of stamps within 30 days. They do not tell you if they do not receive the package back in 30 days that you will subsequently be charged $69.95 every month thereafter. They do not tell you to track the package, etc.. I sent the package back exactly how they instructed the very week we received it because we could not get the material to work and could not get in contact with anyone on the phone. I called multiple times and never could get anyone on the phone. I called 3 different numbers and they all went to the same voice mail. I then started getting charged $69.95 a month. I did finally get a call back but of course, they said they never received the material and would not refund my money. I told them exactly who I spoke to and they said they had never heard of that person, etc.
Do not fall prey to this scam, under the pretense that you think you are helping your child.
