I must have not read the fine print. For over a week the phone number I called never would answer. Then when they did answer it was a recording, they said their was a 45 minute wait to talk to some one, they gave me an e-mail, www.gohelpnow.com which was no help. Finally I can across many other complaints, and hopefully have cancelled. I was billed for the shipping of a sample and the next thing I know they charged my credit card for $74.98. This company is a rip off...

    Same thing happened to me. I have not had a chance to even TRY the samples and they took $128.00 out of my account and I haven't even received the products. How do we stop them from taking our money and is this going to be monthly? They won't answer my calls either.

    I too responded to a promotional advertising for a diet product sample, Pure Acaiberry, it cost $4.87 for shipping only. Next thing I know, this company charged me $74.95 twice on 8/14/08. For over three days, I called the phone number, it was answered by a recording, there was a 45 minute wait to talk to someone, they gave me an website, www.gohelpnow.com which was not exist. This company must be a ghost company and it intended to rip off customers.

    The same thing happened to me. I did get through one time and they gave me a cancelation number. They also told me the product had already been mailed which I have never received and that I could return it by 9/17. I am going to dispute the charge on my credit card by filling out the form for disputes. Will see if that works.

    The same exact thing happened to me. I requested a sample, I was charged $4.87 for a "five day supply", and then the monthly shipment arrived. At that point, I called my credit card company, learned that I had been charged $74.70, and disputed the charge. I returned the merchandise with a note, and following the instruction of my credit card company, I attempted to phone the company, but like your experience, the call was not answered.

    Does anyone know where we might go from here? Is the Better Business Bureau the way to protect other unwitting customers from this bad practice?

    This company IS a rip off!! Here's what I did. I called [protected], I was on hold for almost 20 minutes before someone picked up the phone. The person asked for my zip code, first and last name. I told him that I wanted to unsubscribe and he gave me a cancellation number. Now I will wait to see if I get charged again next month. I will save my cancellation number and get a refund if they do charge me. Hope this helps anyone who's in this same situation.

    I have had nothing but problems with this so called company. They billed me $75.00 and I never recieved the product. I have sent forms in to complain along with several emails, end result they send me an email giving a number to call and I get the same result ie. 45 minute wait time, and to go to a www.gohelpnow.com. It is all a scam and I am researching how to go after this company. Please advise if anyone has any suggestions and/or results.

    Thanks,

    Stacy

    Same phone numbers same recording 45min wait..goheplnow.com. same all the way around. I have been taken for 289.52 so far. I have cancelled through the website, recieved confirmation and they still tried to charge 29.95 twice. My bank is fighting the last 2 charges but the rest i'm just out. You have to cancel your card, that's the only way. If there is a class action, let me know. I'm going to try some way to find how to go after them as well.

    The same has happened to me as well. On August 4th I was charge for the free sample( paid for shipping and handling) and then recieved a bottle of 60 Acai tablets that I did not order or give permission for them to bill my credit card. I called them and talked with some woman who told me she was cancelling my account, which I shouldn't have had one anyways..it was a free sample..and then she told me I had two days to return the bottle..so I did..It cost me $16.50 to return it and it was delivered back to them on 9/4/08 at 12:43 pm, I was told to put a note in with it saying why I was returning it and such and I did so. I told them to credit my credit card of their charge of $74.76 and I was giving a cancellation # as well. But it's been 2 weeks and they still haven't giving my money back or anything, I get the same recording over and over when I call them: we are experiencing high volume of calls..go to www.gohelp.com. I am talking with my credit card company now and they are working to get my money from that fraudulent company. This is a company that needs to be on the b.b.b list.

    I do not have any information about where the company business is located. All I have is what is on my charge card, which is Phoenix Performance, [protected]. I called this number, and I get a recording each time that says, "all of our operators are busy for at least 45 minutes. Please go to "gohelpnow.com, " which gives me no information at all.

    Please tell me what I can do to get my money back?

    I too was scammed by this company. I was charged
    $89 and some change. I called my bank directly and reported that this was an unauthorized charge. Who do these people think they are taking people's hard earned money? I will also file a complaint with the better business burea. I canceled my card, so they will not be able to get any more money from me.

    I, also received a sample bottle in which I was chg'd only for the shipping chg. as stated. Then needless to say, I was then sent a 60 pill bottle without my consent & was charged $74.76 on my credit card.

    As all the other complaints are duplicates re my problem also.
    You call, saying there is a 45 min. wait & to go to this website.
    I will be writing them & requesting a refund on my credit card.

    I sympathize with all the other people that has been suckered into this scam... Hopefully, the BBB will look into this...

    Just like all of the others I signed up for a 4.95 free sample and all of a sudden I got charged $74.76 and no product. I am going to have to changed my card number so that these rip offs cannot get anymore of my money. Something needs to be done here. I also called the number only to be told that there was a 35 min wait and no room in the voicemail box. I cannot believe this crap!

    This company is called Ultra Relief. A few weeks ago I was looking at sites which were how to work at home. When I came one that looked worth while, I read further. This was not only written but it was recorded and I could hear the man repeat, "It's only two dollars to start. So, I put my account number in just for two dollars, than it went to four dollars. Before I submitted it. I cleared out my information, because I read that my account would have $74.00 taken out of it, after the trial period. So, my thoughts were I erased my information before submitting, I would be safe. How wrong was I. Today, I noticed there was $74.00 taken from my account and the bank teller informed me that it was from Ultra Relief. When I did a search it had a number to call for complaints [protected]). After I called a recording came on that said it will be a thirty minute wait or go to www.gohelp.com There was another area to send a written complaint.

    I'm writing to say that I'm part of the I've been suckered by AcaiBerry as well. I've done all the same things that all of you have done. My credit card was charged 4.87 for S&H, and then a 74.76 charge was on my card for a months shipment that I had not received at the time that the charge was made to my card. I was able to talk with someone at the company and she gave me a RMA (return merchandise authorization) number, which I used to mail back the months supply. I mailed the pills back placed the number on the box, got a confirmation receipt from the post office so I could keep track of the package. I mailed the package on 9/12., they received the package in Orem UT on 9/15. And my credit card has still not been credited.

    I totally agree with your complaint. This company deducted $149.96 from my checking account for the months of August and September. I tried to phone and received the same response as you. Need to know where this company is located and where to file a complaint.
