Berkeley Nuraceuticals - Avlimil ripoff - Avlimil -Fraudulant charges NOT FDA approved Cincinnatti Ohio Internet Televison Ads
I never signed anything, nor asked for these pills to be sent after the sample pack. After calling Berkeley Nutraceuticals 1-866-834-1715 and asking for my money back I was told by Kristin, CSR that I had to get a doctor's note to get my money back even if I returned the product. I asked her why a doctor's note? and she said that this is the only way you will get your money refunded or I will give you $35.00 back now without doctor's excuse.
WHAT A SCAM! So I called the bank, cancelled the credit card, got a new number to stop any further shipments. I also filed a dispute with my bank on the merchandise I had returned for $70.00 to be put back into my account. After several weeks went by suddenly there is a charge to my account for $70.00, I called the bank, guess who it was, Berkeley Nutraceuticals. I filed another dispute with the bank and this time I received no product. I called Berkeley again and this time I got a guy named Lee employee number #5188 who told me that he would refund $35.00 not without a doctor's note. I asked if this product was FDA approved and he said "did you read the brochure that we sent eith your sample pack?" and I told him no that I had returned everything. Then he said that since 9/11 they do not give credit back on any product returned because it might be contaminated and "NO" they wee not approved by the FDA.
I asked him why I needed a doctor's note to return product if the doctor never gave me a prescription to get it and that I thought he had told me that the product was a natural suppliment. After going back and forth with Lee, he gave me a fax number 513-674-4831 to fax over my doctor's excuse and then I told him I had placed a dispute with my bank on the charges and he responded " we will have to hold all monies until the dispute is cleared now". Well, to this date and after three phone calls I still do not have my money back....BEWARE OF AVLIMIL and their DISTRIBUTORS! they will rip you off!
