Acai Berry is a huge RIP-OFF! I ordered the thirty day trial period for shipping and handling charges only on March 27, 2009, with the understanding that I had thirty days to cancel. Well the product was dated shipped March 30, 2009; however, I did not receive product via US Postal Service until Sat. April 11, 2009, and on Monday April 13, 2009 $79.96 was taken from my debit card. I majored in math and I don't care how you slice it: two days after receiving is not a thirty day trial period. I called the 1-800-983-7968 Customer Service line and spoke with Vina who tried to tell me I ordered a 14 day trial and I owed membership fees. I copied my order when I made the initial order and explained I might have been born in the morning, but not this morning and that I was currently looking at this complaint website, would contac the Attorney General, Better Business Bureau, Chamber of Commerce, along with my bank and have them exposed for the fraud they were if I did not receive a complete refund within 3 to 5 days. Needless to say the tone changed. This young lady politely informs me to check my account in 3 to 5 days and I should have a complete refund.
I will believe it when I see it.
In the meantime Oprah you were once an admired and very intelligent woman, now you are losing
credibilityand audience. I can not trust your opinion when it affects my livelyhood. Please be more cautious in the future. Fraud and false advertisement might come back to haunt you with the wrong person. Please investigate more thoroughly; America respects your opinion.
We cannot put all the blame on Oprah, or the company. We have to take some resposibility ourselves. America, myself included we need to go back to checking to ensure companies are reputable, well established, and will stand behind the products they sell with a 100% refund if not satisfied with the product.
We have to goback to taking time out to do important things and stop relying on internet, companies, people etc. This microwave mentsllity is what has us doing bail-outs now
