My wife ordered the Acai Berry X3 product that was a link on Facebook. She ordered it on 05/25 and the product arrived on 06/15. I immediately called the number that arrived along with the product and told them I did not want their product and asked for an address as to where to ship it back to.

To make a very very long story short, they charged my account $87.13 without my authorization. They refused to give me a return address and told me that I could keep it and that the charge was valid per their "terms of service". I threatened a lawsuit and have spoken to 5 different supervisors.

I spoke with a supervisor named Sheena Jones who works in the call center there they cancel accounts and deal with all the compalints on these products. Any products from this company can be shipped to:

Shipping Manager
FWM Laboratories
3007 Green Street
Hollywood, Florida 33020

Sheena assured me that the product that was ordered would be fully refunded and that the money will show back in my checking account in the next 7 to 10 days. I have also contacted a lawyer in Florida that is willing to take this case to court...

The credit charges originated out of Great Britian for the original shipping charge and the product charge from Cyprus. My bank has told me that there are a lot of fraud charges that originate from these two countries. I have cancelled my credit card and am getting a new one with a new number...

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

HERE IS WHAT RIP-OFF REPORT SUGGESTS YOU DO:

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!

DO NOT TAKE NO FOR AN ANSWER!

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.

CHARGES TO YOUR CREDIT CARD

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!

Talk to an operator who speaks good English

AUTHOR: Kareem Marquez - (U.S.A.)

I've been through this hard experience of canceling my subscription with this company. I was calling all their helplines. I even suspected that their call centers were not here in the US. I asked helped from my husband and he searched online for an authentic customer service hot line. And then I tried this: 866-949-0138. Finally! An operator who speaks good English. I got my future stopped right away.
