I placed an order on Jan. 20th, 2009, for 14 Day Risk Free Trial in the amount of $3.95. I didn't even receive the product to evaluate when on Feb. 3rd, 2009 I got my Acai Berry Detox and a charge of $87.13 to my Visa Check card was issued on Feb. 4th, 2009. I called Customer Service and spoke with a CSR and explained my situation and I was asked if I read the return/refund policy, which I did. I was placed on hold and instructed to send product back, I explained that I did not try the product yet to have the full 30 day supply amount of $87.13 to be charged yet. I was told my account was activated on the date of the order Jan. 20th, which means that is the first day of your 14 day Risk Free Trial. The Rep (not a very well English spoken guy) asked if he could help me further. I asked him to give me the RMA # (Return Merchandise Authorization) # required to send the product back, even though I had not tried the product, which he did. He informed me I would be charged another $87.13 in 30 days for my next shipment, I advised him I wished to CANCEL any further shipments and request a refund upon the company's receipt of my purchase. The Rep didn't even give me the return address; I had to look it up under the return/refund policy, which you send it to another city in Florida.

I asked for a Supervisor at that instance, I was on hold for 15 minutes to speak with a Supervisor and I explained the situation AGAIN! She (the Supervisor) told me that my order began on Jan. 20th and they allow 3 days to process and 3-5 days for receipt of the product, of which subtracts from your supposed 14 day Risk Free Trial period of the product in the amount of $3.95. I explained I received my product on Feb. 3rd and she stated I should have called to cancel my order before the 15th day, and I asked why would I cancel if I haven't received my product to evaluate. She stated that I should have read the policy of my order more closely. I did read to her their disclaimer, which doesn't stipulate the 14-day trial begins the day you place an order. The phone went dead and I am writing this complaint and will advise EVERYONE I know to not fall victim to this SCAM!! I will send my product back tomorrow through the USPS with a Delivery Confirmation and the RMA# attached and I will file a dispute with my bank, I will hope and pray I receive my refund back.
***I hope this is a Warning for someone else not to fall victim.***
