I ordered Acai Berry and Colon Cleanser online for $1.95 shipping and $2.00 shipping for trial 30 day supply. I was called back the next day by Ms. Williams and she said that my order was not processed because my credit card information was not in the system and that for my inconvenience she would give me a better deal and process my order. She gave me confirmation #'s for the order. I was told there would be one charge of $39.95 which was supposed to be a combo pack of Acai berry & colon cleanser and one charge of $11.95 which was for the 1 month trial of both Acai berry & colon cleanser. Within 13 days from my original purchase date, I have been charged over $400.00 total from my two checking accounts, and have received one month supply of Acai berry & colon cleanser as well as two bottles in one pack of colon cleanser & lifecleanse (which is not what I ordered) I have had to refuse 3 additional boxes of products so far. I am very upset that I was lied to. I have had to cancel both my accounts and submit disputes to try to get some of the money back that they have stolen from me.

Also, I tried several times to get in touch with the company, and every number I tried was a fast busy signal and couldn't get through, or when I did get to the automated system it says if you want to cancel a product, enter your credit card number ~ are you kidding??? I have emailed the billing department several times, and NO RESPONSE!! And, to top it off, the products DO NOT WORK!!!!!!!

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: we could not do anything for you or you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off Report.com. And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!


Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.


If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.

Remember Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck Let us know how you do!
