Natural Wellness Resources/ Acai Berry Tropic / jeapordizing my credit score/ 3 companies involved in one big scam
Dec. 9, 2009, I fell for this scam and paid ~$4.00 for s&h. About two weeks later I get a call from a 1-800 number requesting info about this product (if I like it, if I want to discontinue, etc.) I am given the opportunity to opt out of membership that is associated with the pills- also meaning I will not recieve any more pills, or e-mails, and I would not be charged any further.
Feb. 12, 2010, I cancel my bank account because some unkown drafts in the ballpark of $80.00 are being taken out roughly every 3 weeks. Today, April 6, I get a letter in the mail from Natural Wellness Resources that I owe $168.00 for these Acai Berry Tropic pills and if I do not pay, a 3rd party collector can become involved. NOT COOL!!! I find 3 different 1-800 numbers directed to customer service for all three places- the Natural Wellness Center, Acai Berry Tropic Services, and some sort of membership program. I call all three in the order that I listed them, and get nowhere and end up blessing them out.
I am very concerned that this stupid little scam can create and wreck havoc on someones' credit score. Furthermore, I am concerned that all three entities that are so-called involved have no knowledge of each other, nor do they have solid lines of communication running between them. When I was on the phone their basic response was, "you need to contact. . ."
Even though my bank account is close and since then I have reopened another, I am afraid it is too late to file for account fraud. And I hope this is over with for the most part. But possibly ruining one's credit because of someone else's greed and wrongdoing is ###! The only thing I know to do at this point is to write a letter to all three places stating my story and hope things get taken care of on their end.
To those of you who have had this happen to you, I am deeply sorry. And to those little ###s that are in part of this or behind it, I hope you burn in Hell! I am open to any suggestions that could help me out, any input would be appreciated.
