Melaleuca (Or should I say "Mela Loco") has left a very bad taste in my mouth!! And I had heard for so long about how wonderful they were!!
Well, dumby me had to call to find out about them and had to "sign up" online. Mind you, I NEVER "signed" anything physically, but I filled out a form online and made the awful mistake of giving them my checking account number!
Bad, bad mistake!!! After receiving my pitiful little box of a few small "economy" sized bottles of Melaleuca products and a bottle of laundry detergent liquid that MUST have shrunk during shipping, I decided that this whole company was nothing, but a pure "RIP OFF"!!! My box of "goodies" had been stuffed with plastic blown up pillows to fill the big box so that it looked like I was receiving a gold mine! I kept saying "Is that ALL that I get for $93.00?"
I just could not believe it! And the Nicole Miller line of cosmetics.....ROFL!!...What a joke! A teeny bottle of "toner" and a few other bottles of moisturizer for $30!! Wow! My sister-in-law sells Mary Kay and you get a nice assortment for $30 that could last all year! So, I informed the lady who signed me up that I was not interested and it took her a while to finally get back to me because she was on a Melaleuca "adventure" in Montana or somewhere like that, supposedly.
But, awfully funny that she is always online...Oh well. And they just don't take the word "No" for an answer. So she never really told me what to do to cancel out my membership and although I haven't spoken with her in about 3 weeks, she managed to charge my account nearly $60!!!
So, I had to go to the bank to put a stop on any further charges from them and I was told that if these charges persist that I will have no other choice, but to close out my account! And I received some other information for those out there who need it....If you use a debit type of Mastercard or Visa, you can place a "Hot Card" hold on it so that they cannot debit your account anymore, but then, you have to get a temporary card and order a new card, but your charges would be blocked.
By the way, my items have been returned a letter sent out like I finally able to find out by reading the numerous letters from people who like me are totally perturbed at this poor excuse for a company!
And another thing....I have read about how NATURAL these products are suppose to be....Pick up a bottle of Suave 2 in 1 Shampoo plus Conditioner and compare the ingredients. Coincidence that they are very similar or not?..Hmmm...Makes you wonder! Well, I tried their shampoo and it made me itch like crazy and I had a raw blister right above my left ear that bled!
Something that I used made me break out on my chest in red blotches and like I said, my head and hair itched like crazy!
I tried the laundry detergent and I was not impressed. It looked like dishwashing detergent to me and I am supposed to get 30 loads out of that tiny bottle? They must think that we are total idiots or something! What a joke! Well, I am back to my old self pleased and content with using Suave, All, Purex and brands that I can honestly afford! And who is going to buy a $15 candle anyhow? I have much better things to spend my money on.
Thanks Melaleuca for a wake up call!! And what part of "No" don't you understand?
