Ip-supplements4mybody - Extreme Acai Berry - Pricelimbo.com - Fit Factory / Negative Billing Option - Charges to credit or debit card

1 Ontario, Canada Review updated:

BEWARE


I recently signed up for a free Trial of Extreme Acai Berry. I used my credit card and received my trial product. I thought I read the terms of service but obviously I didn't pay close enough attention to it. You can't imagine my upset when my credit card showed billings I hadn't authorized upon it. I was charged $89.31 by IP-SUPPLEMENTS4MYBODY and a further $8.51 by PriceLimbo.com - there is a 3rd company affiliated that I seem to have been missed by which is Fit Factory and they charge you $29.95 and then a monthly charge after wards of $1.17, if you do not cancel within the first 14 days. I caught this early and was able to cancel with only a one month charge.

When you order you only have 14 days to call and cancel or you have agreed to have them continue to bill you and send you product. They use the negative option method... meaning if you don't do anything it is assumed you agree to continue receiving and being billed for their product. If you get caught in this I have included the terms which have the phone numbers for cancellation to stop this. Good luck.

The terms of that you agree to are as follows:

CAREFULLY READ AND AGREE TO PURCHASE TERMS BELOW BEFORE ORDERING:

I understand that by ordering Acai Berry Power 500, I am agreeing to receive Acai Berry Power for a 14-day trial period (days of availability for actual usage could be less depending on shipping time) beginning on date of order. Three dollars and ninety five cents (non-refundable) for S&P. I understand that unless I cancel by calling [protected] within this 14-day period, beginning on the 15th day my credit card will automatically be charged eighty nine dollars and thirty one cents(Free Shipping) for a 31 day supply of Acai Berry Power 500 to be shipped at that time to my door. Thereafter, until and unless I cancel, my credit card will automatically be charged an additional eighty nine dollars and thirty one cents every 31 days for a new supply of Acai Berry Power.
I would also like to take advantage of the the 21 day bonus trial to Bonus#1(PriceLimbo) for eight dollars & fifty one cents a month thereafter, should I choose not to call and cancel Bonus#1(PriceLimbo). I also agree to the 21 day bonus trial to Fit Factory (bonus #2) and monthly nutritionist newsletter for twenty-nine dollars and ninety five cents plus one dollar and seventeen cents each month thereafter, should I choose not to cancel. For questions or cancellation requests, please call our Customer Support team at [protected] M-F, 9am-9pm, EST. Our hours of operation are from 8am to 5pm MST.I understand that this consumer transaction involves a negative option and that I may be liable for payment of future goods and services, under the terms of this agreement, if I fail to notify the supplier not to supply the goods or services described.

    Industry Tips
    Internet Purchasing
    Consumer purchasing items on the Internet should read and understand all the terms and conditions, privacy policy and other "small print." In addition, consumers who pay via check, debit card or by giving the numbers at the bottom of your check have no recourse if the company is not willing to refund your money. There is protection if you pay using a credit card, you can dispute the charge. Some credit card companies offer one time credit card numbers, which consumers can use when they are doing business with a company they are unfamiliar with.

    There are companies that hide fees in the terms and conditions, including monthly fees which could total hundreds of dollars.
    Nutritional Supplement Company
    The BBB suggests that consumers review claims themselves and ask for copies of clinical human studies that support any claims that products can treat or cure diseases or ailments. Any claims that a product can cure or treat diseases or ailments should be reported to the BBB immediately.

    Federal law through the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) allows for some claims, if scientific evidence is available. The FDA does not review or authorize claims. You will note that dietary supplement companies all have a disclaimer on their sites which states "This statement has not been evaluated by the FDA. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease." This statement is required by law and is used to alert the public that the product has not been reviewed, essentially buyer beware.
