D & D Innovations Reviews (56)
Review: On January 3rd, 2 younger men came to my apartment selling magazines. It took them at least 4 minutes of pretending that they were doing some kind of survey to get to the point. They were selling magazines & the profits would supposedly not only support our troops but also help them go on a trip to Australia. This stuck deep to me because my best friend is currently overseas in Afghanistan. I asked the salesman the price and he said $10 after taxes. I said fine and he swiped my card for EIGHTY DOLLARS! I was extremely confused, the salesman informed me that it could be written off as a tax refund, and would end up costing about $10. I applied for my refund that day. I called the company a few days later asking when I could expect to get my refund. She said because it was done on a card it would have to be sent January 31. I called February 2nd to make sure it was sent. She said it was not yet sent but it would be put in the mail the following Monday. I called the following Tuesday to make sure it was sent. I was once again promised it would be put in the mail that day or the next. I never received it. I called that Friday and this time talked to the owner who promised it would be sent last week. Still have not gotten it. I have been extremely patient up until this point. I really did not want to have to go to the Revdex.com. ALL I WANT IS MY MONEY BACK AND IT WOULD ALL BE RESOLVED. PERIOD. Here it is February 26th and still nothing. Sick of being lied to.
Review: I ordered Jack and Jill magazine for my granddaughter on 12/28/2012, my check was cashed on 12/31/2012.
Review: D&D Innovations did not deliver the product. I've been requesting a refund since 2/18/13 and they are reluctant to issue refund.
Review: On 7/6/12, I purchased 2 magazine subscriptions for my granddaughters. Check cleared my bank totaling $80.00 (I have receipts). I informed my daughter that I had purchased subscriptions and to let me know when they started receiving them. In October she informed that said subscriptions had not started. On 10/23/12, I contacted D & D and spoke with Jessica who found subscriptions in computer, and she said that she would check on them and get back with me. Did not hear from them. On 11/6, called company and left message. On 11/7, called and phone has been disconnected. I would really like to get me money back so that I could purchase a REAL subscription for my granddaughters.
Review: D and D Innovations uses young people to sell magazines door to door. Each salesperson has their own story. Mine was that the magazines would be sent to 30 soldiers overseas for just $30, plus the $10 fee, and I would actually never see the magazines. There was the usual "I'm earning points for..." nonsense. After they left, I began reading the Revdex.com complaints on this company. I seriously doubt that any magazines are going anywhere. These guys were slick and had their pitch down, saying they were going into the military, following in their father's footsteps, where one dad was on his 6th tour in Iraq and one had been killed - real heart string stuff. Probably a total load of crap. But the complaints begin to reveal that these salespeople are trained to cook up a heart string story and then go pitch it. What a tragic way to train young people in how to deceive decent people!! I hope they grow up to be more than hucksters. The salesperson's names were xxxx and xxxx. The problem - they provided absolutely no proof any magazines would go to service members. I can't wait to send this into my buddies at the DoD and them check out D and D!
Review: Invoice Date - 6-20-12
Review: I can't contact anyone at the number left (828-684-9827). $40 is a lot of money for us to lose for NOTHING. We are a small business. After reading MANY other complaints and seeing the "F" rating that this business has with Revdex.com, something should be done to stop, what I feel are, fraudulent practices with this business. I understand the owners are Debra Wright-Brower and David Fussell. I will continue to take this thru other complaint processes such as the FTC, etc.
Review: On 4-3-13, a young man came to my office door selling magazines. He said it was for the military the issues would be sent to them overseas. Along with that he also gave me this bit about how D & D Innovations took troubled teens in and helped change their life around. I support that so I asked how much he said the subscription amount something around like $40.00. I told him I didn't have but $20 to give since I was unsure of this business. He took the money gave no receipt and left ON FOOT. I walked in side of the office I work in looked his business up it didn’t have a webpage so I got a little worried about scam so I looked their Revdex.com report up and read all the complaints. I seen him across the street (taking another innocent person's money) so we confronted him about the business and got my money back. He was very rude about it; and as a person working in sales myself, the customer is always right so if they ask for their money back they should always be able to get their refund and not have to deal with a attitude, especially coming from a younger male who is well built. My point is I'm 21 years old, I have a career but I work very hard for the money I make and I feel like people should know about this business so they don’t give their hard earned money out. ALSO it's very dangerous to have someone go door to door like that and that could have such a nasty attitude. Anything could go wrong.
Review: I knew something was fishy as soon as the seller left. A check with Revdex.com website showed exactly what I feared would, and has, happened to me. I immediately mailed the cancellation/refund request on Sept. 1st, as well as made a phone call to the number listed online explaining my desire and that the request was in the mail. I was met with attitude from the business owner, who hung up on me. Within a week, my check was cashed, but so far (a month later) I have not heard anything from the business owner since then, nor have I seen my refund.
Review: On September 15th, I was approached at my apartment complex by a man selling magazines, giving me his spiel about how it's supposed to help him gain points to possibly win a trip and help him with school. I promptly informed him that I had just spent a good portion of my paycheck on groceries. He continued by saying that I could post-date a check for two weeks. He then added that he would have to call his supervisor using my personal phone, which I thought was a little fishy. I ended up caving and writing a check, but come Monday I found out just how much my hours had been cut due to the labor day holiday and went to the Post Office to send in for a refund as soon as possible. Imagine my surprise when I checked my bank account that evening and found that the check had already been deposited despite being post-dated. After reading on the Revdex.com website, I decided I would wait as others were informed it could take up to three weeks to receive a refund. It's not been nearly a month without a refund, contact from the company, and now an overdrawn bank account due to my budget being thrown off.
Review: I was approached by a young man asking me to purchase a magazine for a solider of my choice. Personally knowing a solider made this decision an easy one but no sooner that I had decided to purchase a magazine I found out this solider will be coming home sooner than expected. I called the company and was told simply to mail my receipt in that I would see a refund by a certain day. That day came and no refund. I called again and was told it would be sent out either that day or that Thursday depending on how everything fell into place. STILL NO REFUND.
Review: Two door-to-door salespeople came to my house on June 4, 2012. They told me they were selling magazine subscriptions for the troops. I bought a subscription for $40, but after a little more thought and research on this company, I decided to cancel the order. I filled out the notice of cancellation on the back of the receipt and mailed it to D&D later that day. I called and left a message inquiring about my refund on July 12, 2012. I called again on July 16, 2012, and talked to a woman, who looked up and found my cancellation notice. She said the refund check would be sent on July 23, 2012. I called again on Aug. 1, 2012. A man named David (presumably the president/owner of the company David Fussell) answered. After I told him why I was calling, he said the business was closed for the day, but to call back the next day and ask for Jessica, who he said handles the refunds. I called back on Aug. 2, 2012, and got the answering machine. I left a message stating my name, receipt number, telephone number, and requested a call back regarding my refund. It is now Aug. 6th and I have not received a phone call nor my refund.
Review: I agreed to purchase a magazine subscription from two young males, who had a sales pitch about earning points for a trip. I live in a community where it's clearly posted that soliciting is prohibited. There are numerous complaints online about David Fussell, and his shady business operations. That is why I cancelled my order. In July, I was told that my refund would go out the following Monday. I called again two weeks ago. The lady told me that she would call me back, but she did not. I called again last week, & left a message. I still have not received a response. There is no excuse for this!
Review: I was walking out my door on September 25th and approached by a "student meeting people as part of his class". He talked all about how he receives points per the amount of people he meets. Then, he begins filling out a form, it is not until after the form was filled out he asks how I was wanting to pay. Considering I live in an apartment complex this shouldn't be happening as it is private property. I sent in my invoice in order to receive an refund the very next day but still haven't heard anything back.
Review: This company is very unprofessional and unorganized. First of all I used a card so I already feel like it should be deposited right back into my account, considering the fact you did not hesitate to take my money. Secondly, I was already IRRATE that it was going to take THREE WEEKS to get my money back, ridiculous. I'll tell you what, I have tried to handle this a respectable manner, but if I do not receive my money by Friday, I am telling everyone on campus about this and to NEVER BUY ANYTHING FROM YOU EVER AGAIN!!!!! My parents are also lawyers, and I have no problem serving you and doing everything in my power to have you SHUT DOWN(and it seems that I will have a case considering all the complaints I've seen)!!! I have been OVERLY PATIENT and I have been OVERLY KIND and you guys have not taken me seriously. This is not a joke, I want my money NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Review: Purchased magazine subscription on 05/30/12 from door to door salesman. After checking negative rating with you that evening, I completed a refund form and mailed it on 06/01. After almost two weeks with no response, I verified that my check had cleared and called on 06/12. "Dave" said a refund would be sent out as soon as his June bank statement indicated my check had been credited. After waiting several more weeks, I then called again on 7/30. After giving him my invoice number, "Dave" again said a refund would be sent out "this week". It's now 9/03 and still no refund. Help!
Review: I've called 3 times now this last week and left my number. Not once have they returned a call in the last week or rather in a timely manner.
Review: SCAMMED IN 2 WAYS!!!
Review: On April 12th, a young man came to my door selling magazines. I ordered US Weekly which came to $40. The end of June, I received a fishing magazine called Bass Master. When I called, a young lady told me they would be sending my check to me on Monday, July 2nd. After not receiving my refund that week, I called back on Monday, July 9th. The young lady on the phone said that her boss had something unexpected come up that week and that they would send out my refund check to me that week. After not receiving my refund, I called back again on Monday, July 16th. The same young lady answered and said that yet again there had been some issues and after speaking to her boss they would be sending me my check on Tuesday, July 17th. I have still not received my refund. I feel as though I have been given the run around. I have ordered two other times in the past with this company and never had any complaints with my magazine order. After this I will never order through them again.
Review: On 1/26/13, someone came to my door and wanted me to buy a magazine so they could get some points for some reward, so I placed an order (Muscle and Fitness) in which I paid in full for a year's worth. Several months have gone (Today's date is 5/21/13) by and I have yet to see what I have paid for. I also have tried calling several times and I've heard nothing from them. They will not answer their phones.
