Acai Berry & Bromolite / Acai Berry and Bromolite Online Ad
I too fell victim to the online ad last month. Read the customer blog and ordered a bottle of the Acai Berry and one bottl of Bromolite from 2 different sites for FREE (supposidely) - just pay shipping and handling. I was veru careful to read the fine print and said no to any extra offers. I received my Acai Berry within a week - and the Bromolite within a week and a half. The only stipulation was that the Bromolite had to be canceled within 14 days so no auto ship would ensue. I did so before 14 days. I did notice though that there was a foreign currency charge on my credit card and when I called the bank they said it was associated with the Acai Berry Company - was the shipment coming from another state? When I called the company they flatly deinied the charge was from them and that my bank was incorrect. I also notieced that the Bromolite was mostly Lactobacillus in ingredient - which I know from personal purchase should be refrigerated and it was not. About 3 weeks later, there was an additional $78 dollar charge for Acai Berry - when I called the company they said that there was NO FREE sample and that if I read the fine print I would have known I would be charged $78 after 14 days if I did not cancel my order. I was enraged and demanded a refund - when they asked me to return the product. Luckily I had not opened the bottle or I would have not gotten my money back. I consequently had to pay for return shipment. They refunded me my money and oddly enough 1/2 foreign currency fees that they had previously said was not associated with them! To add insult to injury - this week I found an unauthorized $29.9f charge from LifeSyleFit.com - charged the night before when I was sleeping! When I went to the website it was a couples personal body building webiste. Calling the number on my bank transaction I found out like the others that it was for enrolloment in Fit Factory - again in the fine print that no one sees! The refused a refund until I threatened to turn them into the Better Business Bureau - they then came back and said he was able to grant me a one time courtesy refund - and that it would post by the end of the month!!! Tonight I saw the same ad online and clicked on it and it was the same blog setup with another person's picture. It is obvious this is a scam and a way to rip off people who they hope will never fight to get their money back like me. I still do not know if the fiasco is over and check my online back statement daily. I wish I had read this site before purchasing. It would have saved me a lot of grief. Buyer beware! Go to a reputable health food store instead. Pass this on to all who will listen - DON'T trust this scam!!! As seen on Oprah and Dr. Oz endorses ... my ###!
