I see these commercials all the time for Video Professor where the “chairman” talks about how he gives away his lessons on CD for free. Well, I hate to disillusion anybody but it ain’t free.
I ordered my “free” lesson and when it finally came in the mail I saw the fine print. It’s free for a certain amount of time. After that specific time is up they automatically charge your credit card $70.
I got the Frontpage lessons because I thought I was getting it for free for the cost of shipping. I saw the warning and immediately called the number and told them I am sending it back the next day as soon as I wake up lol. There is no way I am rich enough to be able to afford $70 for lessons for a program that I’ve been using since 1997 that I am clearly able to use without any of their lessons. I just thought that they would be able to tell me something I didn’t know but every lesson in there was something I am aware of lol.
It would be one thing if they charged $20 plus shipping for a lesson, that’s at least reasonable but $70 that’s a bit much. Is it false advertising that they say it’s free then you find out it’s $70? I think it is.
Ok I have to admit something. This happened like 2 years ago lol. I just saw the commercial and it jogged my memory and so I thought I would blog about it lol.
