I pre-paid approximately $2500 for various services. I arrived for my appointment one day to find the doors locked, and no one answered the local phones, customer service or corporate numbers.

I researched online after several more attempts to contact the company to no avail, and discovered they had shut their doors due to "economic hardship." The owner of the company had previously owned Circuit City, another failed business that he apparently ran into the ground. The company claims on their website that they are working to try to find clients alternative businesses who will take over our packages, but since they escorted all of their employees out by police and security guards, I am curious as to who they are implying is doing this. I have waited a few weeks before doing additional research to see if any resolution will come about, or any progress on their "attempts" to help their clients, but obviously this is just a way to blow us off. They have no intention of refunding our money or finding us other services.

I intend to file a complaint with my state's attorney general (not that I have had any luck with them doing anything in the past with similar issues), and will be contacting an attorney to sue the owner of this company, since I am quite sure he is not personally experiencing any "economic hardship" as our money is burning a hole in his pocket, if he hasn't blown it all already. I suggest you all join me in fighting to get your money back from this *** artist.

Reason of review: Closed and refuses to refund money.

Monetary Loss: $2500.

Preferred solution: Full refund.

I liked: Staff.

I didn't like: Need refund or services promised, Stole money, No refund, Unprofesional, Closed and failed to refund money, Lie re helping clients since close, Owner is thief.

Please contact me if there is a lawsuit. I know it’s been several years now since they closed but I still have hope.

Has anyone contacted a lawyer?

I paid $6,500 for a package never completed and I received less than half of the treatments. My email is sshauni310@gmail.com.

I was able to get the credit company to write off the remaining balance on my loan, but I still paid thousands of dollars for services that I did not get. I was supposed to get "unlimited treatments until hair growth stopped", and I still have hair growth. Would love to get in contact if some monies have been refunded to anyone else.

Same experience here! Started the treatments and saw no results, and I even got burned and scarred on my face.

I stopped going and had a credit of approximately 2000.00. They refused to refund me and now I found out they are out of business.

I filed a complaint with the BBB. Hoping to get results.

I also refused to pay for services I'll never get. Commenity sent me to collections who harassed me by phone several times a day for a year.

I owed $600 of the $1000. Now I'm being sued by the collection company for $1000.

It wasn't really worth it in my case. They should be held accountable for the mess they left behind!

Same here

My credit has been damaged because they sent it to collections, while not providing a service due to going out of biz

I experienced the same robbery. I paid over $2500 for services that DID NOT work so they kept scheduling me for more laser treatments that still didn't work.

Left my face with red marks issues and super sensitive and unresolved. I had went to go in for yet ANOTHER appointment just to find out they closed n would not return my calls. I wasn't even asking for my money back at the time I wanted them to send me somewhere else but now I've been sent to collections because I REFUSE to pay another cent for service that did not work.

This has affected my credit as well and I'm really angry. I would love to be apart of a class action lawsuit
