Proactive solution uses deceptive technics to ripp-off consumers. I ordered proative solution for my son to try but since it did not work, I called back to cancel my order. They informed me that it was too late and they had already sent out the order for the next month. I did not receive the product and disputed the charge on my credit card. Subsequently they sent another charge of $99.84 to my address asking that I make immediate payment. I called up customer services again and was told that I had received the product and that I should make the payment. Again I asked for proof of delivery which they could not provide but insisted that I make the payment. I started ignoring the billing statement until they sent a collection agency the North Shore Agency to collect the money. I called them up and told them I never received the product and called up Proactive direct also to tell them that since I did not receive the product and since I did not authorize the charge I am not going to pay. The customer service rep stated that they will send out the product to me but payment must be made for the product.

I do not want the product, how many times must I tell them not to send me the bill since I do not want the product and I do not want to pay the charges.

Please help me resolve this issue since I do not want a collection agency ruining my credit score.

I do not want this company to get away with this kind of practice.

Disappointed consumer

ProActive Problem

AUTHOR: Rekha - (USA)

Now they have another collection agency SKO Brenner American, Inc. in Farmingdale, NY contacting me asking for the same amount that North Shore Agency wanted. So this claim has now moved to another agency so I guess this is a bullying tactic that they are using tomake sure I make the payment. On a matter of principle I will not make this payment since I did not receive the second set and Ido not want to be bullied by this type of tactics used by these nasty companies. Any one out there do not use ProActive does not work and they hassle you if you happen to order that product to try out. This is a get rich quick tactic used by Guthy-Renker LLC a direct marketing company selling many products through worldwide office. Since I know what products are sold by this company, I will never buy any products from this company and make sure I tellall my friends never to buy from this company. The only way to teach these companies of decency is to boycott their products especially Pro-Active solution which does not work.

How can I stop these agencies contacting me HELP?
