Read Complaint Details
Complaint: MarketGauge advertized a service called "ETF Sector Plus" . It is a service that they post three ETF's from a list of several that the customer should consider buying a position in the market. Each day an email is sent with a change to a different ETF or NO CHANGE. This annual service was advertised in the free Webinar for $997.00 per year. After paying the $997 the CoFounder of MarketGauge stated that you must take trades in a real account or a practice account and if not 100% satisfied within 45 days your money would be refunded. The charge of $997.00 was posted to my **** card on 2/23/2014 with a company called ******** being the company requesting the funds. ******** was called and said they sometimes handled transactions for MarketGauge but did not handle this transaction. On 3/21/2014 I notified customer support ******************** that I in fact had taken trades and that I was not happy with the service for my style of trading. on 3/26/2014 I received this email from customer support at MarketGauge. Hi *****, Thank you for the feedback. I really appreciate the time you took to provide it to us. I have your request for cancel and your refund will be processed within 30 days. Regards, **** ******* Customer Service MarketGauge ******************** ************ ************ Also on 3/26/2014 I received an email from the Co-Founder of Market Gauge informing me my subscription for a year had been cancelled. This is email from *****: Hi *****, Your subscription to ETF Sector Plus has been cancelled as you requested. MarketGauge offers a wide range of trading education and tools covering a wide range of trading interests and activity levels. Feel free to call us or check out our home page, www.marketgauge.com to learn more about our company. Thank you for trying MarketGauge. Best wishes for your trading, ***** ****** Co-Founder MarketGauge Today is 5/5/2014 and I have sent numerous emails to customer support beginning on 4/21/2014 no response.
Desired Settlement: I want the original $997.00 purchase price credited back to my credit card. At this time I am not asking for damages but if this continues I will be forced to ask for compensation for the time I have wasted resolving this issue. If resolved quickly there will be no further action from me to discredit MarketGauge, file a complaint with the proper regulatory agency or further mention this issue on blogs or review sites. If there had been no trial period I would not have participated. Several others also asked during the free Webinar "if we are not happy will our money be refunded" The answer from ***** ****** the Co-Founder of MarketGauge was "Yes if not completely happy your money will be refunded. I would like a response to my emails to customer support. I have called and left messages and sent emails but no response All emails are documented and in fact service was terminated 33 days after the charge posted to my credit card.
Thank you for your help today.
As I stated in our conversation, we have completely refunded the customer who had the complaint and there was never any intention on our part not to refund him. We were delayed in issuing his refund and he got upset. It was our fault. Since we’ve refunded him, I don’t think he’s going to want to bother with anything related to this arbitration.
I’m sorry that my delay in responding to your notification of the complaint led to the process of arbitration. I’ll agree to whatever needs to be done to close this case.
Thank you again for your help.
