Charged $127.55 for a $19.95 purchase
I ordered a drill set from GPM Halftime for $19.95 and was charged in excess of $127. After placing the order I was constantly offered other products and services from upgrades to magazines until I just hung up as I could never speak with a "human". My bank said I would need a police report as the scam was in excess of $100. When I called GPM Halftime they reduced the charges to less than $100 and rudely said it would be some time before I received the balance. The spokesman would not allow me to speak to a supervisor or give me the exact name and address of his company. I noted on Scambook.com that others were duped in this same manner. My belief is that GPM plays on the likelihood that no one will file a complaint because it means ascertaining a police report and requesting a new credit card. Further, after the items are returned they keep a portion of your money for "administrative costs". Moreover, the bank will end up saying the matter is between you and GPM so there really is no recourse except Attorney-Generals or the FTC. All one has to do to uncover this scam is to get a regulatory agency to order from GPM to experience first hand their heinous practices, but that is something apparently no agency or credit card issuer wants to do.
