Additional Complaint Information

Consumers report to the BBB that World of America gives away shopping sprees of up to $2000 on their website at www.woarewards.com, requiring to consumers to pay a “Processing and Delivery Fee” or “P&D” which is 30% to 34% of the extreme mark-up value of the items ordered. Consumers allege that they either do not receive their orders or they receive damaged or inferior products. Upon calling the company to get a refund the company’s voice mail is full and they are unable to speak with a person. In addition, consumers report purchasing a travel certificate from the company and in contacting the issuer of the certificate they find that the certificate has not been paid for by World of America and, therefore, the certificate is invalid.

BBB Customer Review Rating plus BBB Rating is not a guarantee of a business' reliability or performance, and BBB recommends that consumers consider a business' BBB Rating and Customer Review Rating in addition to all other available information about the business. If the BBB Rating is NR then only Customer Reviews are used for the Star Rating.
