Acai Advanced weight loss / Negative Option Clause

My Free (except for $5.95 shipping/handling) bottle of Acai ended up costing me $95.85. My fault. I didn't read the Terms & Conditions.

I received an email about this site for a "Try it FREE* Limited Time Offer" to get a bottle of Acai for a shipping charge of $5.95. You've heard it before, but READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS if you think it is free!!!

Acai Advanced is a NEGATIVE OPTION product! This means that if you do not cancel in the time period given, your "free" bottle of Acai costs you $64.95 and your "FREE gift pass to LiveLeanForLife Weight Loss Management Plan" costs you $24.95. And you don't get your $5.95 S&H back. AND you have 20 days from the PURCHASE date to decide – not the date you receive it. Which gives you about 10 days.

I found this out after having these charges so up on my account. I called to cancel but, guess what. TOO LATE!

Here's what I missed by not paying attention:

    Yeah, they got me, too. I cancelled two weeks ago and they charged my credit card yesterday! It SAYS you can contact them by email, but apparently their email address is a matter of National Security, because it's not listed anywhere. I am going to call them again when I CAN call them during their bankers' business hours! I wish we could attach something to their ads to warn other people off.

    I plan on going to my bank and getting my money back. This happened to me including, liveleaner4life, 3 times with a single order. This is soooo not ok!!! One company refunded my money, but the others are being jerks. This one site cost me about $200!!! not including the shipping charges that I agreed to! We need to do something to warn others. I was thinking about craigslist!!!
