Acai Berry Nutrition charges and no refund

Like many posts on this site. I recvd sample. I cancelled any further product. I was charged twice for over $80. I recvd one bottle and returned it for refund. I recvd no refund. I see this story throughout the internet and yet the banks do not accept it as fraud. Bank of A investigated" so they say" and found this legit. They permitted the charges. I do not expect anything but "too bad " anymore from business. The lawyers have them protected to the hilt. We suckers suffer.

To the" told you so people take your know it all attitude back to the tv and monitor it for some triviality that upsets your self righteous you know what. Why are you reading complaints anyway if you are so perfect

I have filed a report with the Federal Trade commission.
I suggest you guys do the same

www.ftc.gov

I ordered the product and was told my refund is processing. It's been 2 months. With numerous phone calls and email exchanges I was give many different time frames to expect my money, 3-5, 7-10, 10-14 and 30 days. After 2 months I was told my refund is processing, no expected time frame when my bank will get it. No supervisor around. Nothing they can do.

Acai Berry Nutrition failed to refund monies due

I signed up for a free trial of Acai Slim online for $4.95 for just shipping and handling to just try the product. However two weeks later I received Acai Burn in the mail and aweek after that I called to cancel the product because my doctor said product was not safe to use. I returned the product and their warehouse received it on the 15th of October. I called them prior for the address and they assured me that if the product was returned by the 17th I was not to be charged. On the 20th of October they charged my account $87.62 plus $2.72 charged for international transaction. They have yet to return my monies into my account I have been calling everyday with the customer care reps being very unhelpful. The last four times I have called they assure me that they have forwarded to their corporate office. Still no response. My name is Ronquela Biggins my phone number is [protected]

Acai Berry Nutrition overdraw of money

I originally ordered acaiburn and I get that but I have paid for that and I have't submitted my order then another $119.02 was automatically added to my cost. I did read through the website but didn't see information regarding this cost! A week later $119.02 was taken from my account - statement said Web Access? unsure what this meant but presumed I was charged for looking on the website. At this point I was going to cancel my card but due to forthcoming events I decided to leave it for now. I feel completely sick knowing that these people can take money whenever they want - and not show this information clearly on their website. I have never bought goods from abroad before but feel really silly that I have been conned

Acai Berry Nutrition fraudulent credit charges

We made the mistake of ordering four (4) supplements online related to acai berry ffor "free trial offers", "just pay shipping". should have been 2 charges for $3.95, another for $4.95 & a last for $5.95. roughly $19 bucks plus tax for free trial's. all this started 8/10/09. to date our debit card has been hit with $525 worth of charges from the following companies:
Ph. no. found yet... jvr-supplements
[protected] golden health
[protected] wellbhealth
[protected] esupplimentstores
[protected] easystores
[protected] ultimatehealth
[protected] onv/acaiburn
Plus bank overdraft / return fees of $38.50 each for 12 valid purchases that didn't clear because of these unauthorized charges ($462).
We're looking at just under $1, 000 in unauthorized charges & fees from this $19 free sample!
The "samples" are sent in some cases from china with no invoice or packing slip to give you a clue as to how to return them.
The bank so far has been working with us to reverse some of the charges, but these unexpected deductions have caused household bills to be in delayed in payment.
The phone #s were almost all voice mails & the hoops you need to jump thru to get return addresses is just crazy.
In a poorly written email reply we're being told you can only return the unused portion within 15 days of purchase (not receipt) and then you pay shipping, and a 20% re-stocking fee!

The same thing happened to me. This jive company claim that they sent me a sample packagel. I live in Mississippi and the person who has the package lives in Kentucky. I have been looking for information so I can report this to the Better Business Bureau. They are refusing to give me my money. They claim I made the order but how can I make an order and they ship it to another state. This company needs to be stopped. My debit card has been canceled. I talked with customer service at Golden Health Products and they stated that this company is in Canada and is a SCAM.

I agree - This ACAIBURN IS A SCAM. These are the charges on my account. Phoned the toll-free number from the UK in this thread and I held on for such a long time.
The answer message was an American voice. I am scared I have been charged for this call as well - who can trust these people.

https://www.acaiburnpremium.com/contactus.php Went to this website and phoned the toll free number for the UK. Got through finally. He gave me a cancellation number and said no more money would be taken from my account.

Looks like a big scam. I have been charged 4 times and for the same product with different names. GoldenHealth [protected], Dietpureburn [protected], Ultra-Tablets [protected]. Also, two more charges intitally from PerfectHealthSup [protected] for shipping and handling. I have taken this matter with the local police and FBI.

I too received fraudulent charges from this company. I noticed a pending charge of $79.95 from GoldenHealth9788424112. When I saw this on my statement I immediately went as far as to cancel my debit card - I had no idea who this company was and I had definitely made no requests to buy anything. I contacted the phone number and of course received only a recording. The recording simply stated that it was "billing" and did not provide any more information about the company.

Since I could find out absolutely nothing about this company by phone, I searched the internet and the ONLY information I could find pertaining to the number [protected] on the internet was this fraud complaints board. HMM.

I have requested free samples in the past, but I have never ordered any type of "trial offer" in which I have the potential of being billed later. I avoid offers that require billing information for the exact fear of something like this happening. Also, although I do order free samples, I would not have ordered any type of sample about "burning weight fast." I have no idea how this company even got my information, but I will not pay their charges.

To "Shalyn R." - what do you say to a person billed by your company who has never even requested a "subscription" or contacted you for a trial offer? Because that would be me. It's pretty clear that your subtext and what you advertise are two completely different things.

And of course this would happen over the weekend - at a time when it would be extremely difficult not only to contact my bank, but to contact the very company that is charging me, since their "billing office is closed."

Acai Berry Nutrition don't send any more!

If anyone from acai berry reads this, please stop sending any more products to me. I am receiving a package almost every 4 weeks. all I wanted was a free sample. if this is not corrected, and I am not contacted to confirm cancelation, I will take further action. i'm sure you can find my details in your system, and my number is above.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

This is not true. You do not refund people or even give them a cancellation number. I cancelled my order on June 19, just one hour after I placed it. I received the product 17 days after that and returned it right away to China, as requested. I sent lots of messages and always received weird answers. It has been 51 days now and no refund or cancellation # yet!

Office de Protection du Consomateur (OPC), a Quebec government organism, is working on the problem. They found out that Acai Berry products are sold on the Internet with false representation. First of all, Terms and conditions are not CLEARLY displayed. They do not comply with Quebec laws for lots of reasons. If those people want to do business in Quebec, they'll have to follow the rules.

Acai Berry Nutrition read terms and conditions

Please read it all! the complaint I have is the one of the fact the phones are tied up to talk to someone because all you people on here didnt read the terms and conditions of the website. some of you said that you got charged for extra charges, well that is because on the page it states that you will be getting two bonuses and if you had read in the terms and conditions it would state that they were both on a 14 or 28 day trial period and then you would get charged for monthly fees at which you can close the account at anytime with those two bonuses. then the fact of getting charged for the fees of a product right after you have ordered it. we all know that nothing is free in this world and like the site says, 14 free trial period, doesnt say free product nor does it say free sample. this product is a 14 day free trial to try out the product, and you will be charged a small fee for shipping and handling. under the terms and conditions it says that you will be charged 59.99 for the product at the end of that 14 day period, which is a 30 day supply (60 capsules). did you fail to also read that the product comes with a 60 day guarantee, which means that you can return any portion of the product or even an empty bottle back to the company to receive a full refund. so instead of calling about how you have been cheated out of something you need to read the terms and conditions and get off the phone so us people can get through on the phone. dont blame others for you not able to work the internet. you need to read, that is r e a d first, then if you understand the website, charges and terms and conditions then you place your order.

I tried to get a number to send the product (acai) back and was told they did not take the product back. I answered that the terms stated to get a number to return product and the woman still insisted they did not want the product returned and would not give me a number. She actually hung up on me when I insisted on a number. I, too, kept track of the 14 days and called well within those days only to be told I was supposed to start counting the days when I ordered the product. That doesn't make any sense to me as the days should start when I start taking the product or at least have received it. It seems to me they don't give out all the information needed. South Dakota

I too was scamed by this company...There must be a law against fradulant practices on the internet.

I actually did my research...after I gave them my card information. I tried to cancel immediately..they replied that I needed to receive the product before I could cancel. Upon trying to get these people to do the proper thing to no avail.

I immediately called my bank card company and they had already processed the first charges. I explained to them yhay yhis company had a scam going(get this...It is not a fradulant charge if you give them your card # .

The only way I could stop any future charges to my account was to stop ALL charges to my account. In other words I can't use my own card now. The card company would not simply change my number due to the fact that I gave them my # soooo it is not considered fradulent use.

Acai Berry Nutrition free trial scam

Do not, I repeat do not order this so-called free trial of acai burn. what a scam! I ordered their product that was touted as a free trial bottle of pills and $150 later I am finally getting out of this mess. stay away from it and everything that has to do with it! there is no truth whatsoever in their claims or their scruples. there are at least 2 different phone numbers that you have to call to cancel your "membership". omg what a horrendous business.

Yes it is a scam I ordered the first 3 bottles hoping eventually they would work... they didn't. Got the next 3 called to cancel I was over 60 days on 1 bottle told each bottle after the trial would be $58.95 its in the terms and conditions they said.

It isn't even that there is any confusion. They don't care if you use their product or not. If you do then they suck your money away. If you don't you receive "membershis" into programs that you didn't ask for and to cancel those you have to call two more phone numbers even though they are both the same company!

OMG what a scam!

Please please do not order this product, do not give out your credit card details to this scam! I order the product and never recieved it, they took money from my account every 2 weeks, first it was small amounts then large amounts of £50! I rang up to cancel and they finally gave back my money but a few weeks later i discovered that they had another scam company called "Web access" that continued to take my money out, despite cancellation. I contacted my bank and they wrote a cancellation letter to BOTH companies, if more money continues to leave my bank account then it counts as Fraud!

I never even recieved the product and i don't even know how and why i ordered it as i am perfectly slim anyway. I would advise anyone to STAY AWAY from this website and product as it has cost be over £100 to try and sort this mess out. One month later i think i have finally sorted it!

Acai Berry Nutrition ripped off

This is a complete rip off. the trial offer is not free. you place your order through their website and all you have to pay is a minimal amount for postage and handling of $us4.95. the trick is that the fee is in us currency to be posted in the us not international. the order confirmation they sent me via email shows the following:
Summary of today’s charges:
Item description price quantity subtotal
Acaiburn capsules free 1 free
Free trial 30-day supply
subtotal $0.00
shipping & handling $24.95
priority upsell $0.00
grand total $24.95
Your shipment is estimated to arrive within 4-7 business days.
The capsules are not free!
Nz$59.95 has been deducted from my visa account. when I queried this I got this response on 23 february:
I would like to explain why we have charged you $ 24.95 for the shipping charges:
you have been charged $ 4.95 for the original shipping charges and $ 20.00 additional for the international shipping charges since you are in new zealand
I would like to inform you that we ship international shipments via best shipping method.in order to secure your shipment and our acai berry pills we charge an extra $ 20 for international orders. I hope you can understand.
I queried this further and have been told that due to currency conversion the shipping and handling fee is nz$59.95 and that:
we ship one months supply but we offer 14 days to try our acai pills and after that if you wish to continue with the pills after your free trial period gets over then you get charged $ 59.95 for the one months supply.

We shipped one month supply with the 14 days free trial period if you decide to keep the acai pills after free trial gets over then you will be charged $ 59.95 for that.
Most people I know usually cant be bothered returning capsules once they have received them.
This is a scam, buyer beware!
I placed my order on february 15 2008 and still haven't received these yet, today is march 3 2008!

Hello,

You have been removed from the autoship program and you will not be receiving any further shipments. as per the terms and conditions you agreed to before placing your order, your card will be charged the discounted rate of $59.95 for the full month’s supply of amazing pills after the completion of trial period.

You will not be charged the $59.95 for the free trial if we receive the package back before the 14 days trial period is over. if the package arrives after that, then you will still be refunded.

Please return the portions of pills you wish to be refunded for to:

Acai burn
Po box 10233
Des moines, ia 50381

Please send package back either ups, fedex, or if you prefer to ship via usps, please ask for "delivery confirmation". you will be provided with a tracking code - it is very important so please keep this tracking code.

Refunds are processed every two weeks; you will receive an email from us immediately after we have refunded you. please include correspondence in the package with your reason for return and write your rma (return merchandize authorization) number clearly on the outside of the package so that we can identify it as yours, which is: [protected]

What we have charged you is $24.95 only for shipping and handling in usd and shipping and handling charges are non refundable.

I can tell you that although it may not be for everyone, acai burn amazing capsules personally helped me to lose weight and gave me an incredible rush of new life. I hate to see you go but I do understand how difficult losing weight can be. i'd like to thank you for giving it an honest effort.

Have I addressed all of your concerns or is there something else that I can help you with today?

Respectfully,

Jacob

Healthmember-[protected] just ripped me off for an unauthorized electronic debit from my bank account. Acaiburn did refund me 58.76 it was billed to my credit card but they charged me a 2% transaction fee of $1.18. The product was not worth it, it had additives that just didnt need to be added, terrible product! You have to beware, if any of these are outsourced out of the United States, there is a fee charged to your credit card and you don't know this till it hits your account. I tried the products for 2 days when I got my statement with all of these charges I called and canceled before my14 days were up, and there was no mention about the "Healthmember" found that out 2 mo later when the charge came through my bank account unexpectedly. It cost me $ 7.14. I called them from a number attached to the charge on the account. They didn't have my phone number correct, they didn't want to remove it right away! They had to fill out new paperwork due to my complaint. We'll see if I get it back. Others on the internet are stating that it was a non-refundable fee! I will contact the state generals office, and anyone else, along with blogs and complaints all over the internet! Times are hard, we don't need to get duped by these worthless companies!

The company gives you 13 days to return the bogus product with a "False 30 Day Free Trial" promotion. I received the product on the 6th and returned it and they received it on the 14th and the still billed me $87.62 on the 16th. BOTTOM LINE: WORTHLESS AND DANGEROUS PRODUCT AND BOGUS COMPANY AND PROMOTION. FALSE ADVERTISING AND A DESIRE TO TAKE YOUR MONEY HERE !

I also made the mistake of thinking that I would only pay the 4 dollars for the free trial and ended up seeing this website just a few hours after I ordered. I canceled my credit card I immediately jumped on the phone and told them I wanted to cancel, and they told me they would. A few days later, however, I still got the free trial in the mail. I immediately called and asked them if the bottle was mine to keep and everything was done or what. Some lady I spoke to said the free trial was just that, a free trial. So I hung up and was about to open the bottle when I looked at the website I ordered it from again. It said that if you didn't want to be charged more money, you had to send the bottle back within 14 days! That [censor] lied to me! I was so angry that I called right back to the company and told the guy who answered to give it to me straight and not lie to me about anything! I was so angry that I swore at him too. He told me to send the bottle back or I'd be charged the $58 dollars and more. He ended up being a really nice guy and helped me out completely, he even told me about the other 2 charges for the book or whatever that I didn't even know I was signed up for. So I called two other numbers after thanking him profusely and got them canceled as well. I'm just glad I got out of this mess and only lost the 4 dollars of the shipping and handling.
My advice to anyone who is getting the run around is to get angry. Don't let them pull anything over on you. Or tell them you canceled your credit card and they won't get any money from you anyway. Good luck to everyone who is trying to get out of this terrible mess.

Pam: Orders placed in the United States will ship immediately and arrive in only 4-7 business days. International orders may take 1-3 weeks, depending how far the package has to go.

Pam: It takes time of 12-18 business days to New Zealand.

Pam: We have shipped via Australian Post.

Pam: And you will be receiving the Acai burn pills.

you: Would you mind providing the exact name of the delivery service as there is no such service called Australian Post.

Pam: It is shipped via Australia Post.

you: could I have the tracking number so that I can know when to expect the product?

Pam: I apologize for the inconvenience, but we have not yet received updated tracking from the shipping company. We expect to have it shortly, and as soon as we do you will be sent your unique tracking code promptly.

Pam: The cancellation number is just for the reference.

Pam: I hope I was of assistance to you. Is there anything else I can help you with today?

you: ok great

you: In regards to the $58.76 I did not agree to this. I agreed to pay $4.95 for the postage for the "free trial"

I was also had by the too-good-to-be-true "Free" trial offer, only to find that unless I return the bottle within 14 days I'll be charged $58.76! They rubbed it in my face that I "agreed to these terms and conditions" although even their website clearly says "you pay only a small shipping fee" for a 30 day supply. SCAMMERS! The customer service people were rude and could care less who they work for. Now I not only don't get to try the product, but have to waste my $1.95 and time sending it back! And...the customer service rep told me that even though it's only been a week since I ordered it, he shows they already have two future payments set up for my debit account for the end of July and beginning of August. Talk about counting their chickens... horrible! I'm sending it back and will just continue with my 6-day 45 minute workouts thank you!

Acai Berry Nutrition I want to cancel everything I was subscribed or registered to!!

I ordered the free trial of acaiburn which was $5.95 and that was it, then they started charging me more on my bank account even when I called and canceled it. I was charged two times for this product which I only ordered once which was the free trial. then I was charged again for the product acaiberry which I "never" ordered, so I went to there website and sent them a message saying that I wanted to cancel the order and they said that i'm not registered to them. so I wonder, was am I being charged for the acaiberry product when I was told I was not registered to it. I was charged for acaiburn, acaiberry, acaiberryteaplus, teaacaiberry. I don't know if its the same company, but it keeps charging me. I even get charged so for membership, and I dont know why. and now, I want to know why i'm being charged for this poweracaionl. I was charged $94.57, I went to google and searced to see what it was and it brought me here. so how am I suppose to support my two kids when everytime I deposit money in the bank the acai places keeping charging my account. and now I don't even have a job. do you know how hard it is to have two kids, not have a job, having to pay the bills when you don't have money because of acai company keeps charging me for something I never even ordered or never even heard. I called to so many acai websites and canceled whatever I was registered to, but somehow i'm still being charged! I want answers to why this is happening. I want my money back!

Oh and the other thing I noticed was that I can't find a customer number for my husband or myself!?

PLEASE HELP ME! I'm in Australia and they have sent me a second lot of pills but I no longer want them. The site is not working and none of the phone numbers I have tried to call will work.

I have cancelled the two extra membership things but cannot get on to AcaiBurn.

I want to send the second lot of pills back, but am not sure whether I will hear anything or if it will stop them charging me. I am shocked by the huge amounts being deducted from my card but I don't know how to tell them that I don't want it anymore.

It is a rubbish product and has not helped me in the slightest.

This is a major scam.
I did not see anywhere on the web site when I ordered this so called "free trial" that I would be auto matically billed.
After recieveing 3 bottles of this phony laxative pill just yesturday -I called several phone numbers that were printed on papers that came with it. Those numbers were not even for this product.
Finally I had to ask which number would cancellafter about 1/2 hour of waiting on hold.
Finally they let me cancel and hopefully my phone bill wasn't charged to call these numbers!
Watch out!
You must now pay for more shipping and insure the product and keep any tracking confirm numbers.
I smell a lawsuit for sure

August, 2009 - I ordered the Acai Burn (I'm from Canada) last night in a moment of weakness, THEN I checked it out online...should have checked first! I tried the numbers on the Acai Burn website and cannot access any of them from Canada. I tracked down the following numbers to call from CANADA:
Acai Burn cancellation: [protected]
Insider Secrets: [protected]
that other thing you signed up for...I forget the name: [protected]

You will still be charged the $14 some odd dollars for shipping.
You MAY still be charged $6.95 for the Insider and $8.95 for the other one.

I got the Canadian numbers from the Insider number.

You will be charged the 70 some dollars for the Acai Burn unless you return it by the end of the trial period (I'm supposed to receive the trial by the 20th August, and must return it by Sept. 2 in order not to incur any charges other than shipping.
The return address in Canada is:
AcaiBurn
1725 McPherson Court
Pickering, Ontario
L1W 3H9

There MUST be your order number in large numbers on the front of the package. You get the order # from the operator when you cancel.

Hope this all helps you Canadians!

I have also received this product & after reading all the reviews have decided to cancel as well. I actually went to, www.acaiburn.com/contactus.php, & live chatted with a customer service rep & got mine cancelled right away. She did tell me that I will still be charged $58.76 for the original order but she has cancelled the recurring payments . She did tell me that I had to call [protected] to cancel the "Web Access" & to call [protected] to cancel the "Weight Loss EB" or else I would be charged for that. It was pretty easy chatting with her to get it cancelled & then I emailed the chat to my email so, that I have a record of the chat & I also printed it out. I made her tell me 3 different times that I would not be charged further besides the $58.76. So, if you have trouble cancelling try the live chat.

I had a nightmare with this (Acaiburn). I was charged 3 times over 2 months, by companies with 3 different names, only received 1 bottle (the free trial) and was also unknowlingly (apparently it's in the terms and conditions) I was signed up to WEBACCESS aka Insiders Secret Tips and to MEMBERSHIP aka Comprehensive Weight Loss program. Payments total about £130 GBP. To cancel I had to phone 3 or 4 different companies all of which ended up at the same call centre (could tell by the fact the phone kept beeping at regular intervals) despite the different numbers.
I did order the product in the first place but did not sign up for Monthly units nor monthly membership and access charges. Maybe my fault for not reading the fine print but I will not order anything online again in a hurry.
To cancel Acaiburn call [protected]. To cancel Insiders Secret tips aka WEBACCESS call [protected] and to cancel Comprehensive WeightLoss program aka MEMBERSHIP call [protected].

My complaint is that I did not receive any additional product, nor was I fully aware of the other charges that would happen (including an inflated shipping cost). As to whether the product works, I gave up. Now spending thousands on Accupuncture and Cupping instead!

Good luck.

Acai Berry Nutrition fraudelent charges

I also have been charged twice for $4.95 once for $59.95 and now a charge for $29.95. I read too late all the complaints coming from ordering acai burn. I have submitted a complaint to the BBB in hopes of getting some resolution to this problem. I hope that more complaints are sent to the BBB so that they can shut down this company who is just fraudulently continuing to charge unsuspecting clients.

Hi,

I agree this is a scam but I noticed on the advertisement page there was a tiny line of copy which said add $20 for shipping outside USA & canada which I didn't mind if the product worked it would be worth it.

I got my product and have been charged for it. I was also charged for some sort of web use and for something else. I tried calling them but got an automated service, put on hold and then cut off costing me more money. I've sent the empty bottle back and asked for a refund and put a block on my credit card. I am still trying to contact them for my refund.

The pills didn't work for me at all either. In the history of my diets I've always had a weight loss every week. So far dieting with Acia Burn has produced no weight loss at all.

As for the photos of celebs if you look at the green tea advertisement going round the web it looks exactly the same set up and probably the same scamming company running it.

Kind regards,
Tracy from the UK

I also ordered a FREE TRIAL package of this product, on the search page it stated 'Free Trial' just pay a small fee of '£3 S/H.'
Upon accessing the www.acaiburn.com web page there were testimonials, etc., and a very nice picture of Brad Pitt and Angelina stating how great the product is. The web page also offered a 'FREE TRIAL' bottle containing a months supply of Acai Burn, 'ALL YOU PAY IS THE COST OF SHIPPING' which was stated as $4.95.
Proceeding to the 'Are you eligible?' (Of course we are!) Filling out the order form with shipping and handling of $4.95 upon completion ...WOW... it now changes to $24.95 with no way to cancel the order. There was nothing to state that there was a higher charge for overseas postage, etc., and the initial webpage stated the price in £ sterling so it now starts screaming this is a scam.
The product arrived 4 days later with an advice note which states an order charge of $60... Nothing mentioned of the FREE TRIAL that was promised on the Acai burn website. When the customer services were e-mailed it appears that it is not a 'Free Trial' but a 'free evaluation period' and if the product is not returned within the 14 days 'Trial Period' your credit card will be charged for the $60 +$24.95 s/h. The Acai Burn promise of a free months trial appears to be a snip at only $84.95.
A Scam...You decide.

Acai Berry Nutrition cancelling order

I dont know if I have a complaint yet or not. ive read the other comments and am very concerned about getting charged for this other mess (inside secrets and e-book pkg) of which I dont want or need. I guess I want to know if I cancel within 2 weeks and send the product back will it automatically cancel these other things?

Well I was also stupid enough to buy into this scam. To stop the charges, I had my credit card canceled.

Hi I must be another stupid dumb sucker. I was happy to pay for the trial, but suddenly my credit card started losing AUD $80 plus payments. I have had a lot of difficulty cancelling these and the only way to communicate is via live chat. "Emily" said it's all there in the terms and conditions, which I am sure it is, but I am in the belief that this is another huge internet scam. I think any product or company that does not advertise their phone numbers and makes it impossible to talk to must have something to hide or they are fraudulent in some way. Anyway I have written off over AUD $300.00 as a lesson in life.

***update***

closing your bank account does not help, they legally have the right to move on to your new bank account as i was told by vivian on live chat who also told me it was very easy for them to still charge.

They also automatically sign you up for other things too.

my bank account would not close as they had charges pending and these charges were taken leaving my account overdrawn and owing a charge to the bank. This company is a total scam and i have no idea how to get out of this downward spiral. I am a student i just lost my job and live alone. i do not even need this pill, im part of a gym and go daily! i just fell for it because it was free or so i thought.

can anyone help please?
