In their advertisement on the internet for the item PURE ACAI BERRY supplement for weight loss, the company promoting this product did not list all of the ingredients which include gelatin, cellulose, magnesium stearate and silicon dioxide. I am allergic to some of these additives and taking this pill would have been harmful to me. The word PURE has been misused thereby rendering this product fraudulent to the consumer.

I called the company wanting to return the first bottle unopened, which was supposed to be free and the second which was sent a bit later also unopened. The customer service manager at the ab ove number refused to take the first bottle back and the second, both unopened, still sealed intact, even though I would have had an adverse reacation to taking such a product. I am being charged $4.99 for shipping and $78.81 for a product that was never used. They only took the price of the second bottle off my payment. This is fraud at its best. SHAME ON THEM

If you look up in the dictionary to part of the ingredients: it says "NOT DIGESTIBLE BY HUMANS."

I found this on this website and it's just part of it:

Two dietary supplement marketers that lured consumers on the Internet with allegedly deceptive weight-loss claims and bogus "free" sample offers, and then debited their bank accounts or charged their credit cards for continuing shipments without their consent, have agreed to settle Federal Trade Commission charges that they violated federal law. With the increase in Internet marketing, the FTC staff has issued a report providing guidance for marketers to help them avoid deception in making online "negative option" offers. (With negative option marketing, a company takes a consumer's silence or failure to cancel as acceptance of the offer and permission to bill them.)
