SCAM ALERT: Vapex – The $99 Monthly Rip-off

SCAM ALERT: Vapex – The $99 Monthly Rip-off

Did you know that ONE 10ML Bottle of eLiquid is equivalent to 55 packs of traditional cigarettes? No? According to Vapex, their eJuice is!How would you like to pay $99.95 a month, plus shipping, for 40ML of Chinese-made eLiquid? Well, now you can! And it’s simple. Here’s all you need to do.

Sign up for the TryVapex Risk Free (yea, sure) 12-day “evaluation” period, with the moment of your order counting as the official evaluation count down clock. All you pay is just $4.95 when you place your first order, then, 12 days after you’ve placed your order your credit/debit card will be charged $99.95 plus taxing and shipping. 30-days after those 12-days you will once again receive 40ML (4x 10ML bottles and a 5-pack of disposable clearomizers).

If you’re lucky, and you receive the eGo starter kit with enough time left to cancel, you’ll jump through several hoops to do so. You can even keep this eGo starter kit for $49.95, plus taxes and shipping, as long as you’re able to get through to the company and put in writing your reasons you wish to cancel.

Terms 

But wait, it gets even better. Vapex claims that the eGo battery (unknown mAh) will last the equivalent of 55 packs of cigarettes! I don’t know about you, but that’s pretty amazing.
