Ordered Melaleuca through a friend, typical mulit-level "legalized" pyramid scheme, where "friends" and relatives talk you into buying a product at an absurdly high price, talk you into giving access to your checking/debt account and they have you sign a contract that is extremly difficult for elderly people to get out of. You are required to send in writing that you don't want it anymore, with account number and details.
If you tell them you never used the product and wish to return it for a refund, you are told that your "contract" does not allow that, unless it's right after you ordered it, and it also takes about a month's notice to get them to stop debiting your account. To put it very kindly they are inconsiderate jerks. So you say, "that's putting it kindly?" yes, they are criminals, yet have lawyers figuring out how to cheat people and do it so they can't be sued. Normally you would have some recourse with the state Consumer protection agency, but with a very tiny population state, Melaleuca provides a lot of work and tax dollars, so they are not going to kill the golden goose.
If you lost money, about all you can do, without throwing good money after bad it so just write it off as a painful experience. And warn others to avoid them. Of course this is only my exerience, my feelings about them are only related to my own expeience, as in "this is how I feel about what they did to me" I say that for legal reasons so they don't sue me, because they probably would. You will read positive reveiews, of course I have no way of knowing, but my guess is they are prepeared by Melaleuca people.
There are, I am guessing, hundreds of thousands of unhappy "customers- that is to say, I would call them "victims" who are elderly and don't know enought to complain, or whom to complain to. There are boxes of unopened Melaleuca that they won't take back. My bank finally helped me stop them from debiting my account. I was unable to do so because of my disabilty.
someone is typing this for me. Hope you didn't get ripped off.
Let the buyer beward is the old axiom. Never buy something from a friend or relative that you would not buy from the grocery store yourself.
