    Mall of America Kiosk Scam, attached store mgr and sales people


    I went to Mall of America at Minnesota. when I was walking at the mall one sales lady approached me a small stand store. The store selling beauty products that will make you look young. the products are from Jerusalem according to the sales people.3 people were working there. I guy and 2 women. when the pretty and young approached me.. I said I don't need them because I already tried many products to make me look young but the guy and the other women keep talking to me and bug me.. she said it don't cost that much and its really effective. I said I don't have much money to spend.. I asked how much its cost but they didn't tell you how much until they pull me to sit on the chair and tried the products on my left side of my face.. oh I said to myself.. what the heck. it don't cost anything .. so I let them apply the tester kit. I have told them I;m not buying anything and planning to just shopping for clothing for my kids for school. The are very pushy what I did is.. since I like the one that they tried on my right thumb for like cleaning your nail.. for $20 bucks its not bad. since I spend too much on my nails every week at the nail spa in Spencer mall in Iowa. The give my card to the one sales lady and I told them that I can only afford $20 and have to go shopping for my family. They held my debit card and then I realize after a few minutes walking that they charged my card $277 . I went back and talk to the guy mgr. and one new lady showed up and another one guy who are look India and Jewish told me that I was the one who give them my debit card and didn't force them to get it. I said I know but I don't wan to buy this. I just felt bad that they are nice to me and I'm not getting anything so I said I want the $20 nail kit . the store mgr said they don't get refunds. I said don't bullshit me because I am a store mgr too at McDonalds Iowa and if there are customers complaints I can give their money back even they eat all the food. I wen to the front desk and customer service to ask help and file a complain .. the security guard said. that I have to talk to the store mgr. and be aware of the people who are selling at the Kiosk. I said I can't believe you guys letting those people fool people around the mall. The lady said at the mall that I have to call and talk to the mall management.. are you kidding me..? I said.. I need my money back now.. and the guard said.. I have to talk to the management! I've got my receive and dispute the charged and only pay $20 for the nail kit I wanted..


    To all people who looks like an Asian or a tourist look like me pls. be careful when buying things at the mall.. some most of them are imitatation or a scams!..  this store and peThey will bullshit you as they can and realize after a while they will charged you hundreds of dollars .. They have also talked about all of beauty products I have used.. Avon, Mary kay.. all the beauty products I am using like OLay was all bad because their products is the best in the U.S.A. I said to the sales lady do you know that its not good to talk bad about your competitors ..?


    they are from Jerusalem and said the  store don't have a name it will say look  do it your self spa. the products are beauty that makes the people look young.
