GRC Vita Power / Stay clear of these company!

1 United States Review updated:

My husband ordered the youthful essence microdermabrasion for me. The nightmare began right there!! While on the phone asked about vitamins... My husband said no... And the shipments began... They charged our bank account every couple weeks for 63.89 from vita power and 45.90 to youthful essence... I canceled with both after the first sign of bank debit and they continued for 3 months... I had my bank stop payment on them... They continued by doing preauthorization amounts... I sent back shipments return receipts and still nothing... When you order in the beginning it is a telemarketing company that takes your order... Once you give them your info it's all over... They won't cancel it for you, they say you have to wait till you get the package and return... Another scam it's at your expense... Then they pre authorize your bank account by using debit so you can't stop that either... It has been a extreme nightmare... To the tune of almost $300.00 in 2 1/2 months... Stay clear of these companies.

    GRC Vita Power - Fraud & cheating company!
    United States

    I have canceled these shipments for the past 2 months and i am still receiving and still getting billed. When you call the # on your bill it says to "call back during business hours", but it is during business hours.

    GRC Vita Power - Monthly charges to my credit account
    United States

    I ordered some Proactive and ever since have been receiving these GRC Vita Power vitamins that I did not order. Every month $65 is being taken out of my credit account. This has been going on for the last 5 months - I have contacted Proactive who give me a number that no one answers, I have also tried emailing the company asking them to stop charging my account to no avail.

    I have been getting billed every month from GRC Youthful Essence $39.95 and again from Youthful Essence $47.90 every single month. At least I did this on my Discover bill and I kept debating the charges and now they are taking them off and I told the do not pay!

    Discover is good like that, thank goodness I did not use a bank account.

    I ordered Youthful Essence for a ONE-TIME shipment (no auto shipments) 29.95 + shipping, I received the first shipment at 39.95 + shipping and continue to receive shipments and credit card charges of 45.90. When I finally got through to a customer service rep, I was told I could only return 2 of the 4 shipments for credit even when I did not authorize any shipments after the first. How can this be legal when they have a recording of each called in order? Each time I mentioned the recordings the subject was always changed and then was told they didn't know who I could contact about the initial order for a ONE-TIME shipment. Well, I guess we can all figure out why this company is still thriving.

    Same is happening to me. I'm trying to get them to stop as I type. They keep charging me $33 a month. I'll be calling them every day and screaming my head off until they stop charging me. This is totally unacceptable. I will come back and let you guys know if/how I got this taken care of. Hope you had some luck and that I will too. STAY AWAY FROM THIS COMPANY!

    After seeing these complaints I am glad I used a pre-paid credit card to place an order for Sheer Cover. It is worth the $3.95 charge to have some control.

    I am just starting to try and stop shipments and withdrawls. I also tried the grn@ecustomerresponse. com and was not able to pull it up.

    Any ideas would be appreciated.

    GRC Vita Power - Unauthorized shipment and charges!
    GRC Vita Power
    United States
    Phone: 1-888-848-2797

    I was given a 30 day free trial. When I tried to cancel the phone number that was on the brochure was no longer in service. Guthy Rinker gave me an 888 number that did not work either. I could not find a web site. My account is being charged and I will be filing a complaint with my bank if I cannot resolve this issue in a few days.

    I also have been dealing with Guthy Renker over their useless vitamins. My account continues to be charged after cancellation. Refusal to reimburse full amount. Experienced several overdraft charges as a direct result of GRC continually charging my account. I do have some information that may be of help to some. The website is: Corporate Headquarters: 41-550 Eclectic St. Suite 200, Palm Desert, CA 92260. Phone: 760-773-9022. FAX: 760-773-9016. Email Complaints: Toll free number I used to cancel: 888-848-2797. I feel a class action suite should be filed; however, I haven't a clue how to go about doing this. Let's get together and put an end to this lieing, cheating, stealing company.

    I am glad that I was able to read this page which has made me careful. I feel sorry for the loss people has suffered as I had some experiences of the same kind but else where. I saw the advert of useful essence on TV- a shopping channel and felt like ordering it. Now I am wondering if I should go a head for two reason. First, should I help them sell their goods, second, is the product, "youthful essece" is good enough. Comments / email to my account would be appreciated.

    This company has been going in to my account and taken funds for products that I have not received. I have tried to contact them directly but could never get through their customer service or a call back to cancel such order. I need this issue resolve right away.

    I would really appreciate it if you can help me with this matter.

    Thank you,

    They are a total rip-off! I ordered Pro-Active and was supposed to receive 2 free gifts. So when I received the vitamins, I assumed they were one of the FREE gifts. However, when I received my credit card statement, it had a $3.99 charge. I called them (Vita Power), and they informed me that another charge of $34.99 was already charged to my next statement. I cancelled any future orders and called my credit card company, cancelled that card number and filed a dispute. My credit card company is changing my card number so Vita Power will not have access to my new number to charge anything else! Maybe this will work. I agree, something needs to be done about this company!!!

    I ordered beauty products from Natural Advantage and was offered vitamins for a $1. I accepted the offer and tried the vitamins. They are fine, but I am unable to continue to afford. I called Natural Advantage and they advised me to cancel before the end of 30 days and GRC Vita Power will cancel. The number to cancel is 1-888-848-2797. If you catch it before the end of 30 days, I'm told they will cancel the automatic shipment. The KEY is to do it before the end of 30 days from your order date, otherwise, the automatic shipments will go out and that's where you're going to experience difficulty. Today is actually my 30 days and my account was pending a debit. I was advised that my order is now cancelled and they are cancelling the debit from my bank account. For assurance, I asked for the person's name and agent id since they do not have a confirmation number system. I hope this information helps. Good Luck!
