Scam Description

Called based on a charge against my credit card for product – BioKeto. Told they could not stop charge as the product already shipped. But they could give me a 50% discount off of charge. Never asked for credit card, only wanted phone number and e-mail. THey had to look it up and so that is the story I got. I am waiting on product as I’m trying to stop this before it happens again. The young lady who took my call said that the company would not take the product back. So that is when she offered me 50% off. And that it would take a few days to process that. I believe I said YES too many times if they are going to use that to charge other products or scam me more. I hate being made to feel so dumb. I hope this will help others not get scammed.
