Beware Neil Strauss’ Academy Stylelife Rip Off

This will cost you $90 per month!!!

This will cost you $90 per month!!!

Following a reference on the Radio to Neil Strauss’ academy, I decided to give it a try.

The course promises to teach the art of seduction and enable any male to attract the female of his dreams.

Due to a heavy work schedule I dipped into the course several times over the period of 4 or 5 months. Overall, I probably logged onto their site about 4 or 5 times during this period.

Approximately 5 months later after inspecting my bank statement, I realised that Sylelife had been billing me for £54 per month!!!

After contacting Stylelife about this matter, they said that it states clearly on the check out page that the monthly billing will occur. The image above shows part of the check out page that the customer support team are referring to.

In my opinion, Stylelife are not up front about this payment and the form is deceptive – please be aware of this company. I have reported them to my bank and they will try and recover the money.

Here is the comment from Stylelife customer services

We stated in several instances that a program was included with your DVD purchase and this program bills monthly unless canceled.

As stated on the cart check out page, #4 – https://www.stylelife.com/phase2xl/myaccount.php?mod=getinfo&action=AFF1&tpl=1 -

“Dating Master Program: $85.50 Retail Value
You get 30-day trial access to Style’s exclusive Personal Training and Coaching Program in which Style share his secrets with you in monthly live coaching phone calls, direct access to Attraction Mastermind Group, the Elite Forum and thousands of the video and audio exercises, example and field missions. It’s only $19.95 per week, billed monthly, and you will only be charged after if you stay past the 30 day trial. You can cancel at any time with zero hassle by simply calling +1 888 843-4362 for national OR international +1 310 928-7895 or sending an email our customer support at help@stylelife.com, and requesting cancellation.”

Terms & conditions on the same page -

“”SLA Membership dues are billed every month. With the Stylelife Plan option, your credit card will be charged for the first month of your membership at the time of registration, and every month thereafter. Cancel anytime to discontinue your membership. Cancellation becomes effective at the end of the then effective monthly billing cycle.”

On the receipt -

“Thank you for your order! Please be aware that if a line item of “program” appears in your receipt, you have immediate full access to Stylelife Academy’s “Dating Master Program” and you’ll receive a second email with login instructions. The associated fees are assessed monthly and you are under no obligation to complete the entire program and can cancel at any time. If you purchased a standalone item from the Stylelife store, you will only be billed once, as shown here. Here is your receipt. If you are unsatisfied with your experience or materials, please contact us within 45 days of the order for cancellation or refund: Toll-Free: +1 (888) 843-4362, International: +1 (310) 928-7895.”

Basically, Stylelife are playing on the fact that most people wont’t read all the small print in their sign up form. If these are the kind of tactics employed by this company then that speaks volumes of the type of people that they are. My advice avoid this scam. This company successfully debited my account by $420 without my knowledge or consent.
