Advanced Wellness/pure Acai Berry / scam

1 United States Review updated:

This is a scam!!! DO NOT ORDER!!! I ordered a free sample and had a series of charges long before I ever received a product. I tried to call several times and was put on hold until the phone disconnected. I finally talked to someone who, after taking a long time to "find" my account, promised to cancel the order and refund my money but I only had MORE charges. I talked to someone else who also had difficulty finding my account and kept questioning if I were calling the correct company, even though I assured him I had dialed the number on the product invoice and was reading the name of the company on that same piece of paper. He said he would refund my money if I could tell him how much I had been charged but then denied that the charges I was reading out to him were from his company. Then he said IF he could find my account he would cancel it. BIG MISTAKE. EXPENSIVE LESSON LEARNED. I am now going to cancel my bank account so they can't steal any more money from me. This free sample has already cost me over $200.

    YES PLEASE DO NOT ORDER, I GOT FOOLED ALSO. I CALLED THE NUMBER & GOT A CHAT LINE. I CALLED MY CREDIT CARD & CLOSED MY ACCOUNT & REOPENED ANOTHER ACCOUNT. SO WHEN THEY TRY TO CHARGE AGAIN THE # THEY USED IS NO GOOD.

    ALWAYS ASK FOR CUSTOMER SERVICE NUMBER BEFORE YOU GIVE A CREDIT CARD NUMBER!!!

    I received a phone call from a (201) area code number regarding a work at home project. I told them I was not interested and to remove my name from their call list. Oddly, three days later, I received a call from the SAME number, and when I answered in order to tell them that they needed to remove my name (again), it was for the asai berry product!! The woman wanted my credit card info, but I asked for the customer service number first. She was hesitant to give it to me, then finally did. I put her on hold and called the number and got some clinic somewhere. When I told the woman what had happened, she put me on hold, came back, and said "I don't understand your concern." I told her to remove my name from the list and I have contacted the Better Business Bureau.
