I kick myself in the butt for falling into this scam. I signed up for a free trial with XM Labs for their Acai pills for weight loss. As soon as received it, I had a bad feeling and decided not to use it and called them for cancelations and they never gave ma any confirmation # or anything.  That was only a day after I got it and I believe I had like a 10 days within my trial period to cancel.  

Few days later to my surprise I found online that I got charged for $139.97 on my credit card. I went crazy that they charged me for the next shipment that wasn't supposed to be shipped right away till especially during my trial period.  I called my Credit Card company and disputed the charges.

A week later I received the unauthorized second shippment via UPS and I refused it, and it went back to them.

A couple of weeks later or so, I found that I got credit for only $76.97. Again, I called my credit card company right a way and they re-opened the dispute again for the balance of $63. ]

To my shocking surprise today, I received a letter from my credit card company informing me that the XM Labs claims that they charged me a 45% restocking fee.  They suggested that " Direct discussions with merchants can sometimes influence decisions/negotiations in consumer's favor"
Are you kidding me! Not with this rip off company.. I think this is how they make money ripping off people.. I never heard of a 45% restocking fee. 

I never read on their ad on their website of this restocking fee. Besides I only signed up for the free tiral and only paid $1 which was in my case for shipping. So, I never authorized any further payments especially that I canceled already withing the first day I got it.

Upon my credit card company's recommendation, I decided today to call them again.
They told me that I was lucky to get my refund back.. I said but I didn't get my refund back only partial and you owe me still $63. They explained the rediculous restocking fee rip off business and they said that I didn't cancel it within 10 days..
I said I did cancel within 1 day from receiving it. but I guess this is their game.. They send you the product after 10 days so there's no way you can cancel. I'm also filling a claim with the BBB.
