The FREE sample of Advanced Skin Anti-Wrinkle Serum is NOT FREE.
I made a mistake. I clicked on a Facebook ad offering FREE samples of anti-wrinkle cream. I then gave my mailing information and supplied my credit card details to pay for the postage. A few days later my “fountain-of-youth” product arrived. So did my credit card bill for $400. While checking the strange transactions for the postage with my Credit Card Company, I discovered that I was charged almost $400 for my Skin Balance Anti-Wrinkle Cream and Advanced Skin Anti-Wrinkle Serum.
I had missed the fact that the Terms and Conditions – which I had skimmed over quickly, and had agreed to during purchase – stated that I must cancel the contract within 10 days of purchase or I would pay $198 for each product. However the T&Cs were not enclosed with the samples, when they arrived, so I did not know that I had signed a contract.
Fortunately after much negotiating with the seller, I was able to cancel the contract and get a refund.
If you ever make the same mistake, read the full story on how I got my refund and cancelled my credit card on this other Karma Kreatives blog post about Skin Balance Advanced Anti-Wrinkle Cream.

If you have been scammed, it is not easy to watch and hear that there are hundreds of these companies taking advantage of consumers like myself and the other women who have shared their comments below…
As the reporters at CBC say, the only way for us to STOP them– “Don’t click that link!” – after all nothing is really FREE on the internet or on facebook. I wish there were other ways to stop these scammers but neither the credit card companies or companies like Facebook are likely to make it stop for us.
- First of all Karma Kreatives has nothing to do with the skin cream companies in these blogs. I was SCAMMED too – just like YOU were.
- And as an on-line seller, I want everyone to know that there are many ways that you can fight the battle if you are not satisfied with an internet purchase. The first is to contact the seller and ask for resolution.Another way is to contact your CCC and ask them for their help in resolving the problem. And don’t forget to cancel your credit card in the process, and get a new one.
Here at Karma Kreatives, we hope that your on-line shopping experience will always be a highly satisfactory one.
