This is a scam! They say you have 21 days Free, but you will be charged if you don't cancel before the 21 days pass. This means the supplement isn't truly free. It just means you don't have to pay right away. I tried to cancel, but they said I signed a contract, and company policy is to give company credit. They don't offer refunds! They don't care about being reputable and making sure their customers are happy, they just want to make a buck. I actually had to call my credit card company and dispute the charge. Don't buy anything from this company!!

#2 Consumer Comment

READ Before You BUY

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

I just looked at the GNS website from which the consumer ordered the "Slim Seduction." First of all, the consumer has no room to complain about "hidden charges" when the terms are printed on the SAME PAGE.

Within those terms (which are brief and surprisingly easy to read) it tells you that the "21-day trial" is a free trial period--not a free bottle--for the cost of shipping and handling only. It's a "try it before you buy it" type offer for a full-month's supply of "Slim Seduction" that utilizes rear billing. It also states that transit time is included in the trial period. I suppose this has to do with mass mailings of a product and the company having no way of knowing when each individual customer receives their trial.

No matter how unfair this may seem to a consumer, they place their electronice signature on these terms when they click the "I agree to Terms and Conditions" box and enter their credit card information. That is considered a legal and binding financial agreement. This is why I urge consumers to be smart about their internet orders and READ.

ALSO: Any offer on the internet--or anywhere else for that matter--that boasts "FREE* Offer" should be taken with a large grain of salt. The "asterick" (*) implies that there are terms involved, such as extra charges, a membership, etc. A company would probably go bankrupt if they sent out free product with no way of turning a profit.
