Scam'd...


Once upon a time, there was a loving husband who wanted to buy his lovely wife flowers for Valentine's day.

While contemplating where to get flowers, he saw a commercial on the tele-tube for proflowers.com and a promotion they were running.

Cool, he thought. I can get a good deal on flowers for Wifey.

So he went on the inter-webs and ordered the flowers (which ended up not being the greatest, but ok) and paid for them with his magical plastic rectangle.

Six months later, he noticed a strange charge on his bank statement. $14.95 for Easy Saver...

Strange, he thought. So Wifey did a search for easy saver and found this.

They checked their bank statement back through February and - what do you know - these charges had been coming out since the loving husband purchased the mediocre flowers.

The screwed-over couple called the number from the complaint site and, after a quick rant at the guy on the other end, were promised reimbursement in 7-10 days.

Moral of the story: Don't buy flowers from proflowers.com! It'll sign you up for a scam, wherein you give them fifteen bucks a month and get zilch for it. It's apparently how they afford to sell the flowers that cheap or something.

That is all.

You should have asked your florist friend what I think about ordering flowers online. Yup they all suck.

File a report about Proflowers with www.bbb.org And I would recommend always researching the company if you are buying online!

That's retarded.
