@RobandLil0107:  That stinks. 🙁 I always get phone calls about winning a free cruise, I just hang up. Too many scams nowadays!! I just always go with the idea that if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!!

First off, I’m so sorry something like this happened to you! Second off, I’m confused… how are they suing you after they have taken money out of your account? How much was the cookware? How are they coming up with $2,000 when the rings and vacation were supposed to be free? 

Contact your bank and tell them what is going on… depending on who you bank with, they can dispute the charges or reverse them. At the very least, they can help you figure out how to make any more money inaccessible for these people.

If your husband has law background (I’m assuming lawyer), have him look into DTPA violations and state attorney general decisions on similar companies.  Have him or another attorney draft a demand letter and send it to the contact person.  I was able to get my cousin out of one of these things.  But I can’t give you any legal advice on it.  Plus I’m only licensed to practice in Texas.

I’ve never bought $2,000 worth of cookware, but I did walk into a wall once looking at a hot guy in high school.

That definitely made me feel like an idiot.

@RobandLil0107:  I see! Well, I say this calls for a good ol’ fashioned arm-wrestling competition. BEAT THEIR ASS, SEA BASS!

But seriously, it will be okay, I’m sure of it.

Woah. I really hate to hear about companies taking advantage of people. You really ought to get with the Better Business Bureau and leave bad reviews on social media sites, no matter how this turns out (but do wait until after it’s resolved one way or the other.)

But don’t worry too much yet. It will probably just be small claims on the off chance you do wind up havnig to go to court over this, right?
