Complaint: On July 3, 2013 I was contacted by Life Watch USA 1-800-717-9295 and was told that this was referred to me by a Dr., at first and when I asked which Dr., then they stated your Sister: C S (I am Only using her Intials). I figured yea because I was looking and talking about getting one for my Father who is in Alzheimer stages and recently got outside and rambled not knowing where he was at! So I asked about G.P.S. and they gave me information on that also, and then turned me over to another person (which I know was in the same room because I heard them in the background watching TV!), I was suspicious, so while I was on the phone waiting I did a search on my Computer which I was at, and what I read was not very good! So when the person got on to take information from me, I stated that I had just searched and it was not good what I was seeing , she stated that they were reputable and had been In business for 30 years. So like a fool I ordered paying for 3 months which was $134.85 ($44.95 @ month for G.P.S. including discount for paying every 3 Months), Well I waited for the Equipment to arrive 4-5 Days as stated and also at the Web page site. On July 10, 2013, I got a call from:1-800-716-1433, and I was told that the Product was out of stock and would not arrive for 2-3 weeks before it was back in stock (well that blows my 30 day guarantee out the window!) So I could not believe this so I told them TO CANCEL MY ENTIRE ORDER AND REFUND AND PUT MY MONEY OF $134.95 BACK INTO MY CHARGE CARD ACCOUNT AND IF THEY DID NOT DO SO WITHIN A COUPLE OF DAYS I WOULD CONTACT THE ATTORNEY GENERALS OFFICE BECAUSE I FEEL THAT THIS IS ELDERLY ABUSE FOR MISLEADING THE ELDERLY, AND ALSO A SCAM, AND THEN TO MY SUPRISE ON MY LOCAL RADIO STATION YESTERDAY JULY 15, 2013 ON THE NEWS THERE WAS A ANNOUNCEMENT WARNING ELDERLY ABOUT SCAM ARTISTS CALLING PROMISING FREE EQUIPMENT FOR SENIOR MONITORING FOR A MONTHLY FEE AND TAKING THE ELDERLYu2019S CREDIT CARD INFORMATION FOR THE STATE OF TENNESSEE!!! I will be contacting the Attorney General if my funds are not put back immediately. When you google search the phone number that first called it was from New York, so I will also be contacting the New York Attyu2019s General Office! Outrage! And feel so stupid for falling for this!!! Should have known better!!! My 83 year old Father is still waiting for the G.P.S. bracelet to arrive! I cannot make him understand in his condition! Come to find out that if a person refers another person they recieve $100.00, and since I know my Sister would do it for the money no matter what!
