ACIBURN / Charged $60 after cancellation

1 Des Moines, IA, United States Review updated:

SCAM, SCAM, SCAM. You order a "free-trial" product for 30 days. When you get the product, it is really for 14 days, and you have only 4 days to use the product before returning it. I ordered the product 1/23/09, received the product and 2/2, called the company on 2/2 and after spending hours dealing with the problem was told to return the product insured with a delivery confirmation (it cost me 4.00 to return the product). I returned the product on 2/2/09, the post office confirmed delivery on 2/7, and I was charged $59.95 on 2/14 for a product they NEVER even shipped. THIS BUSINESS IS A SCAM. They charge you $5.95 to try a product for 4 days, hoping you will miss the deadline and they can keep charging you. A word to the wise: DO NOT ORDER ACIBURN -- or you will be burned. I will probably file this with the AG's office. This took about 4 hours of my time to deal with and it's still not resolved. I have to pay $59.95 on my credit card account this month for something I NEVER received and won't be credited until NEXT month. Maybe they have a cash flow problem and do this to pay the bills each month. Don't we all need extra cash during these lean times. Since most people dont' look at their credit card statments closely, I am sure many unsuspecting people are scammed. I could really use the $60 this month to pay bills for ACTUAL products I purchased and consumed. I was also charged two $1.00 fees to join something I cancelled on 2/2 (that was automatically added to my Aciburn order). So all in all, to get 4 days worth of pills (who knows if they worked or not), it cost me about $12.00 and 4 hours of my time. BEWARE !!!

    Total Marketing SCAM...beware.

    Canceling AcaiBurn is no easy task. You have to return the unused portion of AcaiBurn within 60 days, request a cancellation number and a refund. You will also be billed for two other "partner" memberships...look out for them...Comprehensive Weight Loss is just listed as Membership 18007127222 for $9.95 monthly, and Insider secrets is listed as Web Access 18662796513 for $4.95 monthly. You have to call all three (AcaiBurn, Membership & Web Access) to cancel. Be sure to get confirmation numbers (if you can), and then call your credit card Disputes Department to lodge a complaint to stop them from collecting automatically.
    My credit card told me that every other dispute today is based on this kind of "Associated" marketing. AcaiBurn is a gimic to get you to sign up unknowingly for multiple services. Their whole business is a hedge to see if you will not notice the smaller charges on your credit card. They make it hard to get all 3 cancelled, and very hard to get your money back. Unfortunately, people fall for this one.

    The same thing happen to me. What was free turned out to be about 300.00. I got charged 4.95 membership, 2.00 fee, 59.95 for something free & then 89.95 for detox health. I called & the lady said she canceled the stuff. I told her I would be contacting the BBB about this & also send them my credit card statement. I told her I woudl be checking my credit card statement & I still have not seen my credit. I just did it this morning so it may take a day or 2. I will also be disputing this with my credit card company. This place is a scam & I told the lady that I talk to it was as well.

    Just after ordering this product 4 days ago, I am watching my local news and a scam alert about this item came on the air. I then started researching for complaints about this product and found plenty. I called my credit card people and cancelled my credit card.. I explained to them what I was hearing about the product and extra billings. They were going to alert the fraud center for further billings.

    The next day I did receive the product and I have immediately called and cancelled with the company. I did get through after a 10 minute wait and the person did cancel my order. Although, They said I would still be charged 59 dollars for the bottle that was sent. I declined and they did give me a number to send it back. I didn't tell them I had canceled my card in case they continued the scam of charging anyway..

    I live in the UK and when I ordered Aciburn the statement said I would only be charged $4.99. On the very same day I emailed the company to cancel because I was a bit wary and he presto I was right. When I received my bank statement I was charged 21 pounds so I requested a new card from my bank so Aciburn did not have the new number. Then just yesterday I checked my bank statement and another 42 pounds has been taken out. I have put this in the hands of the fraud department of my bank but dont hold out any hope as they said it was really my fault for giving out my bank details.

    I just got off the phone again cancelling my subscription. They did refund the first 59.95 but failed to actually cancel my subscription and charged me for a membership fee of 9.95, a transaction fee of 1.00 and a 4.95 web access fee. I called again and they have said that I am now canceled as the person I talked to last month didn't cancel me. She has told me that all those fees will be refunded and could take up to 2 weeks to appear. I'll be checking my credit card bill thoroughly again next month. Product didn't work for me either.

    I ordered Acaiburn from the Uk. I too was charged $24 for postage yet it was posted inEngland for less than $1!!
    Cancelled within 7 day, and immediately posted back the unused pill recorded delivery.
    Credit card charges are mounting up depite having 'sucessfully' cancelled in February.
    Absolute rip-off.

    Be aware its a scam

    I too was scammed by Aciburn. I ordered the product and received it. However, I was checking my monthly banking statement and saw that Aciburn charged me $59.95. I called canceled my membership and returned the unused portion of the pills. I was refunded the $59.95, however for the past 2 months I have been charged a $9.95 membership fee plus a 2% Int. fee. I have called my bank and told them to stop allowing them to debit my account and I am trying to call the number that comes with the debit on my bank statement. ACIBURN is a JOKE!!! Do not order the product! They are trying to SCAM everyone they can!!!

    my friend ordered aciburn and was only supposed to be charged the shipping and handling fee, and it was supposed to to be a free trial, today her account was charged over 100.00 for the free trial, this is crazy, she attempted to call the numbers that she has for them and is not getting through if anyone has any info on the fraudulent company that will help her please post it.
    This is rediculus in these times where money is hard to come by how can yahoo or whoever even allow these people to advertise.

    AcaiBurn is very sneaky..After receiving there pills
    and trying with no weight change cancelled order
    and sent back the pills to reach them prior to there
    expiration date of return. They received the pills on
    April 14th - 5 days prior to the due date of April 19th.
    They went ahead anyway and charged the $59.95
    on the 21st of April. I called and they say I will be
    refunded that amount in two weeks. I confirmed my
    cancellation confirmation number for April 10th and
    they changed the number and date for April 19th.
    I didn't accept that number and will continue to keep
    the original number for April 10th. Meanwhile small
    charges on my card are appearing...seems AcaiBurn had associations with other companies where they charge fee's for there suppose services. One is the Ebook Finders Secrets which charges $6.95 after 7 days service. There cancellation number is 1-866-363-0187. The second one is Comprehensive Weight Loss which will charge $9.95 after 28 days service. There cancellation number is 1-800-989-5907. I suggest you don't forget to cancel these services as they will come up on your credit card statements.

    Called and was told I would no longer be charged and they charged me 2 more times. You know when you call the number and they tell you in a recorded messae you will not receive any money back that there is a huge problem and they already are aware of it. This cannot be legal

    SCAM SCAM are all the numbers you need to call to cancel everything...Acai Burn 1-800-659-3588, Insiders account 1-866-363-0187, weight loss program 1-800-989-5907, make sure they give you the cancellation numbers, cause it takes a while for this to actually kick in, I had a friend who had to cancel his credit card because funds were still getting charged to his credit card...SCAM SCAM SCAM
