The 2 Things Challenge this week is Unexpected/Order.
My wife ordered a book from a web site called discountbooksale.com. The unexpected part of her order, however, was that if you weren't extra careful in the checkout process, you were actually signing up to let them charge $19.95 to your credit card every month, simply for the privilege of being a part of their club, with absolutely no other benefits unless you continue to order large numbers of books from them at their supposedly discounted prices. Somehow we missed the warning on their website, we missed the email they supposedly sent explaining it all, so we got no benefits. I should've paid more attention to the bills, but by the time I'd figured out what that charge was each month, they had a tidy sum via what I called a SCAM. They finally agreed to refund some of our money, but we still lost more than I'd care to admit.
Lesson learned! Watch where your mouse goes.
Back in the Water!
