No flame e cigarette scam .How many of you have fell victim to this company? Not only do they hurt the consumer they also make legit e cig businesses look bad. I promise we are not all like that. Here is an e cig scam, the brand is called No Flame and if you read my blog posts you already know the difference between a three piece and a two piece e cig. (the two piece is good the three piece is junk) Here is their so called great offer
“Exclusive Offer Terms: By clicking confirm my order, you agree to be enrolled in the 14 day trial offer for $4.95 which is the cost of shipping, and after the trial expires, you agree that your card will be charged $99.67 for the Starter Kit. Your refill cartridges will recur at $69.67 plus shipping and handling every month from the time of initial purchase until you cancel.”
That sounds like a great deal but, things are not always what they seem.
” I can buy that same kit from any of my suppliers for under $5.00. That is not a typo I can buy it for less than $5.00 and they are selling it to consumers for $99.67 and trust me when I say that no one will ever answer the phone nor will they receive any cancellation from you. You will be stuck with it and on top of it all the cartridges that sell with it are not cartomizers they are actual cartridges that are the equal of 2 – 3 cigarettes. Not 2 – 3 packs of cigarettes 2 – 3 cigarettes they come 5 in a pack and they are going to send you 4 packs and bill your card $69.97
On top of it all the 14 day free trial starts when they package it up for delivery. So it will sit in the companies mail room for at least 1 day possibly 2 days. USPS is not known for their speed delivery, you figure 5 – 7 days for delivery. Best case you get it in 6 days that means you only have 8 days to try it. Worst case you have 5 days to try it
Whatever you do please do not fall victim to these scam artists
Here is the link to the scam. Whatever you do do not give any information.

After you get to the website scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page. Click on the fine print that says ” Terms, Conditions and Refund Policy ” Go to the second paragraph and you will find this statement.:

So today I get a call from these scam artists and I gave Meagan an ear full. They had no clue that they were calling a legitimate e cigarette distributor. Right off the bat she starts selling me on why she needs my credit card, you would think that she would try to sell her product but she already knows that her product is junk. The kit that No Flame sells only costs $3.50. That is right they pay $3.50 for a kit and then they sell it to you for $100.00 because they will never answer the phone number that you need to cancel. I have tried to call it a few times and it is answered by an electronic switchboard and when it transfers you, you will be on hold until the call disconnects.
You should only purchase e cigarettes from Legitimate company’s that give you a way to talk to a real person. NEVER FALL FOR A FREE E CIGARETTE TRIAL SCAM!!!
