Protetox.com is an e-commerce supplement site. Protetox is a natural antioxidant dietary supplement, according to the vendor.
Protetox claims to be located at 19655 E 35th Drive, suite 100, Aurora, Colorado 80011. A Google search connects the address to Shipoffers, a third-party shipping forwarder. This is proof that the vendor doesn’t actually process its returns. Shipoffers oversees the process.
The website has copyrighted images from other websites. Why Clickbank doesn’t investigate further before approving affiliate websites is questionable.
Protetox is a Clickbank affiliate. The vendor promotes its products via Clickbank, an online marketplace. Over 320 BBB complaints have been filed against Clickbank over a three-year span.
Clickbank is registered with the State of Idaho, but its business practices are not the best. The company’s affiliate program targets some of the worst online vendors. Consumers all across the country have reportedly been victimized by a Clickbank affiliate. Unfortunately, a resolution isn’t made easy by Clickbank, itself.
Clickbank processes payments while affiliates handle the shipping. The process is similar to Amazon third-party sellers. It appears, Clickbank gives its affiliates an opportunity to issue refunds, which isn’t always as simple as it may seem.
The company utilizes a payment processor that somehow processes unauthorized credit card payments. Customers authorize the initial payment and within days, an additional unauthorized payment shows up on their bank account or credit card statement.
Please note this has nothing to do with Protetox.
A particular customer complaint got our attention. The customer claims Clickbank double-charged his/her credit card. Clickbank’s response denies processing any payments for the customer. The customer responds by providing the transaction information, including the vendor, Clickbank. Remarkably, Clickbank locates the transaction and issues a refund. It took over two weeks for the customer to obtain resolution.
This is just one example of the company’s shady business practices.
Protetox is not accredited by BBB. There is no BBB business filing as well.
Afterword – Protetox Scam
Is Protetox a scam? There is no evidence of a scam. However, the Shipoffers address shows the vendor doesn’t handle returns. Orders may be shipped from the same address.
We recommend reading Protetox reviews on Trustpilot and BBB before buying. So far, there aren’t any customer reviews.
