I took up the subscription because of the free gift offer. However, I received an alternative gift which was inferior. When I phoned up I was offered an alternative.... Also inferior to the original offer. I can't help the feeling that I have been the victim of a scam and ripped off.

thanks for your feedback!

I have sent you an email regarding your free gift, this should be received shortly.

I hope you have a great day!
