Walkfit / scam

I ordered walkfit insole online after I saw it on TV. I got my order like 3-4 weeks after the ordering. I was charged 29.99 total, which is right. then next month, I saw my credit card is charged again of $44.85. i called walkfit, they say it is the joint formula that came in with the package. so I went back to try the ordering process, and realized that it is true, when you click order, next they will ask you if you want a "free "gift, but be careful, it also says, you will be charged $20/month from now on, and they will continue to send you the joint formula. so I guess I saied yes, that is why I was charged next month. so i ask them to cancel the joint formula for me, and refund me. but they say I have to send my first free joint formula back. the first one is supposed to be free gift, so why should I send it back, although I didn't use it, I don't want to pay the shipping fee. PLUS, I was hang up millions of times during the phone call !!!

anyway. From now on, if you have to order something from an unknown company, TV commercial, etc, these kind of dubious places, remember, don't take any FREE gift, carefully read all the words, and don't use your major credit card, use one that you can cancel if you got too much problems like the other person did. bottomline, if you don't have to, never order anything from these kind of companies.

but I have to say, I kind of like the walkfit insole, I know lots of people feel uncomfortable, but I like them, this is exactly what I want, and I never found it anywhere else. the Dr.schole gel insole I tried before is a total waste of money compared to this walkfit.

    Absolute scam...buyer beware! The Walk Fit Insoles may withstand a truck going over them, but they don't do much for your feet...except discomfort.

    Total Scam,
    I got my Walkfit insoles about 3 weeks ago and now they are charging me $44.85 for the joint formula.
    I called them up and they told me that I said yes in the internet about the formula and that I would have to cancel it and they would not give my money back. They also said you should have already gotten your second shipment and I told them I have not received it. Then they said to wait 5 to 7 buisness days. Well I reported it to my bank and told them that I dispute the charges and they are trying to get the money back. I am also canceling my debit card so they can not charge me anymore. What a big scam/

    WalkFit are definitely professional scam artists. They sell you the arch supports to get your credit card number and then charge your card for things you did not order!!!

    WalkFit insoles are great. I have plantar Facitis, the arch muscle problem that creates heel bone spures and after trying the ones that the podiatrist gave me and another from Heel the Pain, this is the only insole that has even given me any comfort. This is the only product that I use. My current podietrist didn't believe me and yet she gave it a shot and even some of her other patients now use Walkfits.

    Yes they do try to then continue to charge you for joint formula and possible other products. I have had similar issues with other produst. That is why when oreded them, I specifically listened for these type of offers and right after I recieved my insoles, I called to cancel anything still active on my account, which included the joint formula and the rubber covers to go over the walkfit. There was never another charge.

    Walk fit is a consumer shipping and handling scam along with deceptive practices on add on products and continuing monthly credit card charges. I had to try and resolve problems with a rep in India no no choice of someone in the US. I cancelled my credit card to stop them from charging me any more. I ordered two pair thinking second pair would be a bargain, wrong, additional shipping and handling of around $45 for package the sixe of your hand and maybe 6 ounces. The silicon inserts are a joke. If you can't stop shipping, its auto for months to come on the joint pain supplement.

    Watch the TV ad closely and you'll see a "visual deception". It's done when the celebrity host, Stewie, shows people how their balance is increased w/Walk Fit. First, he presses down on the participants hands and they lose balance and almost fall. Next, SUPPOSEDLY does the same thing WITH the orthonic being used by participant. But, the physical demonstration is FIXED. Watch the first demo, w/out walkfit, and Stew pushes down AND pushes away from persons body, toward himself. During the demo With the orthonic, he just pushes down, Not pulling toward himself like in the first demo. It's very apparent while watching, the person being demonstrated on can't see or tell the action. Look closely, you'll see the deception. This SAME balance trick is used with the new, fake, Energy bracelets that claim to improve balance. The person will push down on arms, AND pull slightly forward. Just pushes down when it's done with the bracelet on. It's subtle, but it's there. And it's a lie, deception, etc. Beware and tell others. Thanks

    Lol, I saw the commercial for time tonight and in it it shows one person pushing down on another fists trying to prove that without the product you lack balance but you can see the commentator pushing down but slightly pulling towards himself to pull the other off center but when the product is applied they neglect to pull so it looks like they have achieved balance by using the walkfit, I truly appreciate it whe a product so blatantly lies and I know never to trust or purchase that product. Idiots!
