View Full Version : Up-grades for Ancestry and Wellbeing

10-03-2020, 02:02 PM
I up-loaded my raw data from FTDNA to Living DNA and got free information based on this data. This was on the 3rd June. A day later I came across an advert on their site offrerring up-grades for ancestry and Wellbeing at a discount price of 29 for each respective up-grade. After taking into account the COVID-19 hassles I patiently waited for about 10 weeks for the results. Since then I sent about 6 emails expalining that the kits for taking the samples for testing had not been received. The few replies I received made reference to the information I aquired via the up-load of my raw data. The recent email I received said that they checked mu account, and siad that I have received the full regional breakdown of my ancestry and that prior to the upgrade I would have seen '100% Europe', but my recent ancestry currently shows a detailed breakdown of the UK regions. Well I actually had that information after up-loading the raw data.

BTW they never even bothed to address the issue of my up-grade to the WellBeing data.

I get the distinct impression that Living DNA is either staffed by idiots or rogues

After looking at the different options within the site it looks as if we have had our wires crossed. Yes there are 29 up-dates for both ancestry and wellbeing, but that was not what the impression I had when I made my purchases. I was under the impression that I paid for a more in depth result at a discount price.

Nevertheless I told them that I am willing to compromise the issue by paying an extra 41 towards the Ancestry and Wellbeing kit which is priced at 99. I already have some of the results that this kit provides from the 58 I have already paid.

I therefore hope that Living DNA will agree to this and I appologised to them for all the misunderstanding on my part.
