If anyone paid Neoskin with Credit Card I suggest you dispute your charges immediately, even if they are over a year old.
I had good results from my treatments at Neoskin while they were open, prices were best around, it all makes sense now.
And I found this through google on this site:http://mexfiles.wordpress.com/2008/11/11/why-associated-press-sucks/
"There’s been a recent scandal, covered in all Mexican newspapers (even my local Noroeste de Sinaloa) over the abrupt bankruptcy of Neoskin, a chain of depilation studios. A record number of consumer complaints (mostly for pre-paid services not performed) led to investigation. If I understand my business Spanish correctly, Neoskin (described as “una estructura escalonada”) was a multi-level company, with profits from the pre-sold hair-removal contracts going to the parent company, and losses listed as incurred by the studios around the country, which were listed as a separate company. Guadalupe Garza Martínez, the parent company’s legal representative, is on the lam, after an arrest warrant was issued for “generic fraud.”
What vaguely interested me in the story was that Ms. Garza is also wanted for “despidio injustificado”. Besides cheating all those hairy ladies, Ms. Garza skipped town, having plucked the company (and its clients) for what she could, Ms. Garza skinned the workers… basically, having skipped town with the loot, the employees were unjustly deprived of their livelihood. Specifically, they have been fired without due cause. I thought about writing something about employee rights in Mexico, but there really wasn’t much in the story to interest me.
The Associated Press also picked up the story, and — true to their crappy reportage — didn’t do any more than telephone the Mexico City office for a comment. They did report that the phone was disconnected, which is no suprise…"
