Not only was I ripped off, they sent me a fradulant tracking number, and My Bank called me this morning to ask me if I was moving to LosAngles, California.
October 28, 2017: One of many complaints about ClearSight on file at RipoffReports. There may be nothing illegal or wrong with the following business practices. But they suggest that the seller is not to be trusted. I’m using my Scam-O-Meter scoring system; -1 means true (bad), +1 means false (good), and 0 means undetermined. I penalize the seller for statements made by shills. Contact information:
Web site: ClearSight
10024 N Taryne St., Hayden, ID 83835
Phone: (415) 727-8750
email: firstname.lastname@example.org (I found a complaint that this address doesn’t work)
Ridiculous claims: -1. “Comfortable 1-size-fits-all design.” Anybody who wears prescription glasses knows this can’t be true.
Suspicious location: -1. “10024 N Taryne St., Hayden, ID 83835” is an office/warehouse building; in this four-year-old picture it was for sale. That’s not suspicious. But this partial list of other businesses using this address, some dubious, is.
- Dollar Fulfillment
- Positive Vibez
- Vanika Jewelry
- Locket Kingdom
- How 2 Publishing
- Macek Consulting
- Invisible Body Shaper
- Shurkleen Carpet Cleaning
- Klein’s Home Improvement
- SafeSound Personal Alarm
Onerous terms: 0. I see little to object to in the easy-to-read terms. I’ll note that they don’t guarantee that their glasses are fit for any use, nor that anything they say is true.
Ads, spam, robocalls: +1. You can opt in to receive emailed advertising, and opt out.
Lying and deception: +1. None found.
Obfuscation: -1. Constant popups about other people who have supposedly ordered glasses. Also; “Stock is extremely limited: Sell Out Risk: HIGH.”
Phony reviews: -1. On-site testimonials are fake. I checked the picture of one of them and it’s all over the internet.
Crummy product: 0. All ClearSight definitely says about the glasses is that they are tinted yellow and are “anti-reflectory.” It isn’t clear whether this means they have an anti-reflective coating. ClearSight doesn’t say they are polarized. One of the pictures on the ClearSight web site shows a lens with a bevelled edge. That looks like a wrap-around bifocal; I doubt it would be helpful.
Overpriced: +1. ClearSight is asking $20 for a pair. It seems pretty easy to “win” a second nearly-free pair for which you pay the shipping charge. So, say, $10 a pair. Amazon has several yellow-tinted drivers’ glasses offerings, including this pair for $8 that is polarized and comes with a case.
Bad service: -1. I see complaints of slow or no delivery. One person writes “The money has already been taken out of my account, where are my glasses? They were ordered on October 6th, 2017?” “I placed an order and never received the night vision glasses. No way to contact them. Website not available. No way to track the shipping number they gave me. It is a scam. They just kept my money,” writes another.
Total score; -1
Unauthorized charges: I’ve seen some complaints about this, but it looks like the real problem is slow delivery. Some of the small sellers collect orders until they have enough money to buy a case of whatever they’re selling. A bad sign; ClearSight doesn’t accept PayPal.
Conclusion: Buy some drivers’ glasses at your pharmacy. There you can try them on and test them and, if necessary, return them without a hassle.
