Scam Description

I was offered a free Smart Health Watch if I paid US$9.90 shipping and complete survey for Costco. I did it, was charged US$9.90 in July 16, 2022 and received a very cheap Smart Health Watch. I did not use the Smart watch at all as it was not useful and I just realized today, August 22nd, 2022 that HifiHomeToys charged me US$96.90 into my credit card on July 31, 2022. I did call questioning why I was charged and would to return the goods, but they told me that the 30 day return policy was passed and not counted from the charge of the purchase but from the delivery of the equipment. In the survey, there was nowhere stated that it was not a gift and this was trial. What a sneaky company with crap products. I hope one day this company will get its justice. I’m just a consumer with no power.
