ACAI BERRY BREEZE Informative - I was taken please read the small print and don't order

Review by DonnaMusick on 2009-09-30
SOUTH SALEM, OHIO -- I saw this advertised on a pop up on the internet, they said they would send me a months supply of capsules free for trial just postage of $4.95
I received them and tried them for 2 wks. with nothing happening. They were to be used with another product called "Colon Cleanse 3000",which I ordered with the same free trial offer of "free trial" only $4.95 postage and handling.
After I cancelled them they billed my credit card $167.90--$83.95 FOR EACH

There's nothing free about it if you're having to give them your credit card information. That's where the scam comes into play. They aren't going to give your money back. You could try disputing the charges with your credit card company or you might just have to cancel that card all together. Chances are, you probably won't see your money again.
Best of luck to you.

bkk is correct...these companies are scams...they just take your money...if you have to give your cc then you have to expect they will charge as much to it as they can. File a dispute with your credit card company immediately.

I see complaints about them all over the net. The ComplaintsBoard is spammed with complaints about them.

Nothing is free. Remember that and you'll be fine.

Question: What is the number one sure fire way to tell if a free offer is a scam.

Answer: The offer requires your credit card number.

BA Stew...

I agree Stewart, why would a company want your credit card number if they are giving away products for free. Its just a deceptive scheme for them to have accesses to your credit card. I never sign up for anything that asks for a credit card number and free in the same sentence.


and also when you have to pay for shipping the item is technically not free.

yea goduke, and people trust everything these hollywood types say. Just cause they have a tv show doesn't mean they know squat from the average joe...remember they are ALWAYS ACTING, and trying to make a buck. No different that any other business.

I can't believe how gullible people are these days. It's almost like they were born YESTERDAY, with the intelligence of a baby. You cannot trust ANYTHING OPRAH, Tom Bosley, Rachael Ray, or anybody else advertises! That, sadly, is a fact of life these days.

DO NOT believe ANYTHING, ANYBODY says or recommends about ANY product or service, on ANY website, on ANY TV or RADIO program or COMMERCIAL. The infomercials you see on TV are the WORST SCAMS ever, They will SCAM you for THOUSANDS of dollars, if you are dumb enough to fall for their GET RICH QUICK lies!

The PHONY BALONY NAMES these companies use just scream SCAM but apparently some of you STILL can't hear it !!!
There is NO magic pill for anything!

Many of these SCAM companies are not based in the USA, but you don't usually know that when you order. SO DON'T ORDER!
Once you give them your credit info, it is then TOO LATE to change your mind, even if you TELL them you do NOT want to order before you hang up or get off the website! The "free Trial" STARTS the DAY YOU CALL TO ORDER their crap...Not when you RECEIVE the product. They delay shipping it to you so your "FREE TRIAL" has expired BEFORE you even receive their SCAM product. then they start charging your card anything they want because, technically, YOU GAVE THEM PERMISSION TO CHARGE ANYTHING THEY WANT! ALL the "FREE TRIALS, just pay S & H" is set up this exact same way, No matter which products or guarantees or testimonials they may tell you about.

This DAZZLE WHITE, Reg cure/ safe cart, Power Colon Cleanse, Erase Credit Card Debt, Colon Cleanse 3000, RezXtra, VIV3 ACAI life CLEANSE, GOOGLE FORTUNE, ACAI PURE, ACAI BURN, ACAI BERRY BREEZE, GRANT WEALTH KIT, Dr. FLORAS COLON CLEANSE, GRANTS 360.com, Acai Advance, ACAI BERRY DETOX, Google Biz Kit, ACAI BERRY MAX, Nature Cleanse, Pure Resv, Maxaciburn, WY YI tea, HealthRezV, All the free money GRANTS sites, colon cleanse, Miracle Beauty Creams, get rich quick, Tax Settlement claims and buy houses for $300.00, pennies on the dollar, mortgage refinance, Mortgage Modification, Weight Loss, Gold buyers, Payday Loans, Penis Enhancements, Dating sites, Auto Insurance (US Fidelis & others), credit card relief, and all the "free trials, just pay shipping", are ALL SCAMS to get your credit information. They will promise or Guarantee you anything it takes to get your credit information!

ALL of the so-called GOOGLE ADS are a complete SCAM, No matter which website you saw it on, Do not believe any so-called testimonial, they are 100% FAKE, PLAYED BY actors. If you don't BELIEVE ME, try one or two on this very page, I dare you!!!

Please read the TERMS OF SERVICE of ANY product carefully before ordering ANYTHING. Stay safe …DON’T order anything from the internet, TV or RADIO. Most of the time, you can't read this until you have given them your credit information and by this time, it's too late! If they want to put you on a recurring monthly charge, or sign you up with some other "FREE TRIAL", STAY AWAY at all costs.

These recurring monthly charges are hard to win against your credit card and banks because they will argue that you AGREED to the charges. The Scammers KNOW that, also. Your only recourse is to claim that your card(s) were lost and do it THAT DAY, don't wait!

We are a nation of naive, trusting people thinking we are about to get something for nothing or near nothing.
All we have to do is freely give our credit information to a voice on the phone we can BARELY understand, or worse, to a scam website we never heard of before. We give out information to them that we would NOT give to our most trusted BEST FRIEND. It's no wonder America and Americans are going to HELL in a hand basket.

NEVER, EVER RESPOND TO ANY INTERNET AD, TV OR RADIO AD, NO MATTER WHAT THEY PROMISE OR GUARANTEE and no matter which program or website you saw or heard it on. They are all lies. The so-called testimonials are paid actors, NOT REAL, ACTUAL TESTIMONIALS. Their Guarantees are worthless, they mean absolutely nothing.
Do you REALLY think they would allow a negative testimonial in their commercial?

Has it ever OCCURRED to you people to try to get these goods or services LOCALLY first? And if you CAN'T get it LOCALLY, you DON'T REALLY need it.

It looks like almost all the companies, anymore, are getting on the SCAM bandwagon, (Price line, Pro Flowers, a lot of the major banks) except possibly the LOCAL ones.

Based on the fact you are running around commenting on all online ordering I'm going to assume you got taken! Just because you fell for a scam doesn't mean the entire online shopping industry is out to get you. There is a lot of things you can't purchase locally.
Posted by jktshff1 on 2009-10-01:
Eloise, experience is hard to combat. Charlie reinforced what you said.
I can purchase anything I need locally.
'course I ain't in boom fart, USA either, though close to it.
