The only way to stop GNS from charging your credit or debit card for unwanted products is to CANCEL YOUR CARD. As soon as you get the supposedly "Free Trial" with the statement saying you'll be charged $79.90 in 2 weeks CANCEL YOUR CARD IMMEDIATELY. I did. So, when they tried to charge $79.90, it didn't go through. They sent me an email to update my charge card info. LOL
The only way I got through on their toll free # was to wait until they closed, so I could leave messages. I told them I had reported them to the FTC, Denver BBB, Colorado Attorney General, USPS Postal Inspector, and the Internet Crime Complaint Center. And I suggest everyone who's been scammed by this company do likewise. The FTC told me any future shipments would be considered gifts, because I told them to cancel it. Subsequently, GNS sent me an email saying they had taken me off their auto-ship program. LOL

Here's the numbers/website to file a complaint:
Denver BBB - [protected]
Colorado Attorney General - [protected]
Federal Trade Commission - [protected]
Internet Crime Complaint Center -
USPS Postal Inspector - My local Post Office copied the shipping label & all the forms I received.

    i cancelled within the time frame they gave me, and sent back the product. before that they'd already tried to charge my credit card, but there wasn't enough credit so my cc company wouldn't allow the charges. before they sent me a request to update my credit card info, i made a payment (i'd have waited if i'd found this site earlier). i called for the return auth number and she told me they'd refund the charges they'd already processed (which were actually none). then two days after they received the package back (i have the conf. from the USPS) they charged my account and sent me an email telling me my trial period had expired. i replied that the will be refunding me immediately, and i'll be filing complaints with all the organizations you listed. unfortunately i didn't keep my shipping label or the invoice or any of the paperwork i got from them- i sent the useless product back in the same package and sent the packing slip/invoice along with. whoops. hopefully i'm not totally screwed...
