Central Coast Nutraceuticals Inc / Did not order product!

I sent in for a "free sample" to be mailed to me of their Green Tea product and did not order further product, yet I received a bottle of Green Tea in the mail and a bill for $44.90. To return it, I will be charged a 15% restocking fee and shipping charges. I am no longer ordering anything over the internet, there are too many scams and I always get scammed when returning product.

I too wanted to check out the $1.00 green tea offer. Thought it would be a great product to try at just$1.00 plus shipping at $2.95... little did I know when I received the shipment ... extras would be included at additional costs. What a total scam!!!
And the crazy part, is not being able to contact anyone to return the items.
I can't believe that Oprah would ever endorse anything like this!

I TOO tried the one dollar plus mailing charge for the Green Tea Extreme Scam...Not knowing that IF you did not cancel the order? (what order) a trial is NOT an order. So, a month later I got sent a whole bottle more of these pills, and NO place on any paper was a place or email to return these pills to for a refund... less 15% of the cost of 44.90. So, I got charged on my credit card for this SCAM. The tea pill was a diet pill, AND, I weigh 90 lbs... as IF I needed this pill... IF it said is was for dieting, , , , , , the writing must have been VERY tiny, as I did not see THAT and would not have ordered it to begin with. You have to get an OK to quit their offers, but they leave NO address or email to write to to get this.

NOW, this scam company writes to tell me my FIT FACTORY free trial order is about up, and I will be billed for this item also. I did not receive anything else from this company... I don't even know what a Fit Factory is. Please, SOMEONE do something about this Company, who is scamming and harrassing many of us people. I am 75 years old, and don't need this harrassment. Thank You, Darleen Henning lakecity33@embarqmail.com

I just received the same notice from the Fit Factory for the same product. I did not order it. I have received nothing. What is my next option?

Would any of you that have been scammed by the company and product be willing to go forth with a class action lawsuit? I am not a lawyer, not sure if one has already been started against them, but was sent an additional bottle of pills that I did not request(one time trial offer was all I asked for), and am sick and tired of being nickel and dimed by these people!!

If interested, post here and I'll see what I can get started. I need the cooperation of others in order for the ball to get rolling. Thanks!!!

Maybe this will open their eyes that we will not stand for scams or the opportunity to appeal our case.

Unfortunately, in the "terms and conditions" we had to click on when you sign up for the "Trial Offer", we "agreed" to all of this stuff:

Terms and Disclosures. You have ordered the Green Tea Extreme risk-free trial for one dollar plus four dollars and ninety-five cents shipping and handling. After the twenty day trial you will be charged thirty-eight dollars and ninety-five cents. You may cancel by returning the unused portion anytime within the twenty day trial period, and you will not be charged. You may cancel any time by calling toll-free 1-888-692-8352 M-F 6am-5pm MST. You also agree to the twenty-one day bonus trial to FitFactory for thirty-nine dollars and ninety-five cents a month thereafter, should you choose not to cancel. Cancel any time by calling 1-866-407-1022 M-F, 9am-9pm, EST.

So while it's horribly unethical, a lawsuit won't work.

I have paid $89.90 since the first bill of $5.95 in February, 2008. I have been attempting to contact this company to discontinue the service. I am feeling that this transaction was a scam. I will continue to attempt to get in touch with these folks.

I also ordered Green Tea Extreme from CC Nutraceuticals and was charged for the Green Tea which I agreed to but not the FitFactory for $39.95. I also did not received any merchandise or service for the FitFactory - it is a total scam. I have now cancelled the Fit Factory but so far no refund on my credit card. Where do we go from here? I will call again although the first number is not answering and the message is it is no longer valid. What can we do?

I ordered what was supposed to be a free sample, where you paid for S/H only. The next thing I know I receive products I did not even order and I have 44 dollars taken out of my checking account. They include a bogus phone number which no one ever answers no matter what time you call.

Folks, we've all been scammed. The key is to file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and the FTC. When you log on to the BBB (http://www.bbbsoutheastflorida.org) and search on the company name, you will find there are several listings for them already. But the key is to get the FTC to investigate this fraud. Just go to www.ftc.gov and click on the complaint button, and fill in the forms. This will finally get some action against CCN!

I ordered an one time sample product "Pomclear" diet pill for a single charge of $4.95 on my Visa charge card. Now the company is fraudulently billing my Visa account $44.90 for a product I do not want. There website has no information on how to return the unwanted product, nor how to return the product, and refund my charge account. There ads for a sample product "Pomclear" does not state that you are committed to purchasing the product monthly, nor does it state that you charge card will be charged on a monthly basis. I do not want or like the product. Please help me to end the fraudalent charges on my Visa account!! This company is a scam!!! Thank you, Unhappy consumer

of 4.85 What a rip off and to return it
they charge a 15% re stock fee

I was scammed by these people when ordering 3 "trial" products for "shipping" costs only of $4.99 each. When the charges hit my bank account there were 3 alright -- 1 for 45.85 and 2 for 44.85 each. Thanks to S.Bernard for the insight as to how to report these monsters. I'd join a class action suit against these people as the individual 217 days ago asked. The economy is in bad enough shape with people having to make sure every dime counts. We simply do not need these unscrupulous individuals and companies making things worse for those of us who are trying to make things better for ourselves.

By the way. When you call the phone number you'll be told that they are experiencing extremely long wait times due to the propularity of their products. For four solid days, I've left my phone on speaker for the required amount of "hold" time (anywhere from 36min 8 sec to 48min 10 sec) and still nobody answers the call. If I was this much of a dirtbag I wouldn't answer the phone either.

I got ripped off big time from these crooks. They charged me 2 times on the same day I am out about $90.00. I called the fake number and it was busy and would go dead. I got a different number from my bank statement I was on hold for 2 hours-no joke, music was playing over and over. I ordered a sample and it did not even work, it made me sick. I sent it back. I will be going to my bank to dispute the charges. I wish there was something that could be done like jail time for these crooks.
