Complaint / review / scam report

Unfortunately, this business is undertaking some unethical and dishonest business practices to promote their deal coupons. This is causing a lot of people to ask a lot of questions about the coupons that they are selling, for purposes of clarification, but the answers are not clear either. I have had a total of two counts of bad experiences with them.

Please see below the response on what happened when I responded to one of the new deals that they just advertised, with my past experience. They were mis-informing the customers of the availability of this clinic yet again, and all I said in my one-liner comment was that this information is not accurate, and that in my experience, the clinic is in fact not open during the times they are claiming to be open.

In the past, I have bought a coupon for the same clinic( DiscussionID=5121), Healthmedica, and they advertised exactly the same hours, while the clinic actually does not open on Fridays ad Saturdays, not even by appointment. Healthmedica is working with me to see if they can do something for me, but its been two weeks, and I have not heard a positive response, despite calling them, and emailing them multiple times.

In the past, I had bought another deal from them about a laser clinic, and please refer to this link ( DiscussionID=4660) to see how they never answer the questions of the customers directly, and try to skirt around the issue, causing widespread confusion. In the end, they ended up selling about 500 vouchers, worth $200 each, with wrong information. The clinic actually did NOT honor "unlimited" services for this coupon. The coupon was in fact for only 12 services, covering only "upto" 3 body parts for hair removal, which costs much less than the $8500 worth it advertises. The confusing language made it sound like it allowed you to book daily appointments with this clinic as long as it covered a different part of the body, and the same part cannot be repeated for a month for reasons of procedure effectiveness.

Even though I was offered a full refund when I complained, the point is that they are trying to fool gullible customers into buying their dealst by unethical advertising which misrepresents the information by using vague terms. This is directly against their advertised pledge:

Thank you for your post.

Unfortunately we had to delete your post. Our posting board is not intended for customers to counter-promote our deals. It is there for Dealfind customers to post questions that pertain to the deal of the day. It is not a forum for discussing personal or past experiences.

It goes against our contractual obligations to host negative comments on our site.

We hope you understand!

Dear Roxanne Kats,

A new Deal Talk message has been entered by XXXX on 26-Aug-2011 at 10:08am in St. Catharines - Niagara

i'm currently dealing with Healthmedica regarding another deal I purchased, and those hours of operation are not real. They do not operate on Fridays and Saturdays, and i'm having trouble with that, since I had purchased the deal to be able to use it for Saturday appointments.

You can Delete or Edit the message on Deal Talk Page.

Thank you,
