I came across a television ad while I was channel surfing for this promotion but hang on to the phone number for future reference. I finally gave them a call late August and after an extremely long and repetitious introduction, which I thought was just due to an exuberant and excited promoter, I got connected to a representative who tried to convince me to purchase other products. Since that part was not unlike other sales experiences I've had in the past, I thought nothing of it. $156.60 was deducted from my checking account the same day on 8/21/07. After waiting for my product, "The Greatest Vitamin in the World," which I questioned because of how absurd it sounded, didn't arrive after a week and I hadn't received my "welcome package," I decided to call the customer service number on 8/27/07 and got through to someone. I asked her to send me the introductory materials via e-mail so I could get started as soon as possible to earning money. She assured me that would not be a problem. However, I never got the e-mail. What caught me a bizarre is that after calling the customer service number several times between 9/4/07 and 9/6/07, the 1-800-544-8482 number, I kept getting the message, "debit card has not been activated." I also called the number I initially used to get in contact with the company, 1-800-618-1415, and an automated voice stated that all circuits were busy despite every time I tried. On 9/6/07, I then called the number on my bank statement which reflects the transaction, 1-800-373-6001, and I got the message, "this authorization code has been deactivated." I'm scared to take the vitamins now because, with their fraudulent business practices, only God knows what they actually put in the pills. I've been a victim in the late 1990s but I never thought it would happen again. Please help me put a stop to this and prevent countless others from being victimized. I've not invested near as much as some people have, but it's still my hard-earned money. Any attorney interested in a class suit should please contact me.

AUTHOR: Kb - (U.S.A.)

I was in such a hurry to get the report out of the way, I have a few corrections to make in the manner in which they "should" read:

1) After waiting for my product, "The Greatest Vitamin in the World," which I questioned because of how absurd it sounded [the rep verified that was the name of the product], [it] didn't arrive after a week [from when I placed the order] and I hadn't received my "welcome package." So, I decided to call the customer service number on 8/27/07 and got through to someone.

2) What caught me [as] bizarre ...

3) I've been a victim [of a ripoff] in the late 1990s but I never thought it would happen [to me] again.

I contacted the Better Business Bureau today to file a complaint because I am determined to see this company go down and at least 6 addresses in Phoenix, AZ were listed from previous complaints and the one I had up above wasn't. So, I made them aware of it and at least we know they were still using an address in AZ as of 8/27/07. I hope a task force in Arizona will be set up to hunt these people down.
