I recently ordered a free trial product from Increase Your Health.com . I only needed to use my credit card for a $1.95 shipping fee. I have not used my credit card on the internet in over a year because I am very cautious about giving my account to companies. I did not however read the fine print of other companies that they did business with. I recived another shipment in the mail that I did not want from Increase Your Health. It cost exactly $34.90. I decided to keep it and not ask for a refund because I would use the product. It did however make me very wary about how the complany makes money by hoping that their customers would not read the small print.

NEXT, I went back to Increase Your Health website and saw that they piggy banked with the company fitnessheaven.com. They gave an offer of recieving Fitness Heaven for Free. I again read the fine print and saw that if I did not cancel Fitness Heaven within a certain amount of time, I would be charged for that service also. I was outraged that Increase Your Health would set me up for another finacial aggrement by giving them my credit card number without specifically asking if I wanted the service. It looked like a freebee, but on the other hand it would turn out to cost me, if I did not cancel the order by reading the fine print.

NEXT, I recieved a charge on my credit card bill for $61.02 by a company called Voip Talk a.k.a HMS Blue. I have never used this company nor ever heard of this company before. I went to the Better Business Bureau Report to do research and found a scam with Voip Talk/ HMS Blue and how they charge people without them knowing. I also found a correlation between Fitness Heaven and Voip Talk/HMS Blue. I gave my credit card number to Increase Your Health for a shipping fee of just $1.95 and in return HAD to do bussiness with Fitness Heaven AND Voip Talk/ HMS Blue without my knowing about it. I am unaware of who eles these three compainies give credit card information to, but I know that Fitness Heaven had access to my account and then Voip Talk/ HMS Blue came across my account somewhere. I have every reason to believe that these three compnies biggy banked themselves onto another website ( they call it partnering) and then steal your credit card number, charge it, and go on about their business.

I am extremely outragged at not only how Fitness Heaven, Increase Your Health, and Voip Talk / HMS Blue have teamed together to make money through a scam, but also how the original complany, Increase Your Health, relies on customers NOT to read the fine print to make money. This is poor business and it needs to be stopped.

Those of you that have experience the Voip Talk/ HMS Blue scam did you do business with either of the two businesses listed above? There is a correlation!
