Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

I ordered on line a "free" trail size bottle of acai berry. Paid the shipping cost of 5.99 which I deducted from my visa debit card. That was suppose to be all there was. A "free" trail size.

Tonight when I called to confirm the balance on my card I was not prepared for what I heard. 78.81 less than what it should have been. I immediately called customer service and was told that the amount had been automatically taken out by acai berry.

To make matters worse...my paycheck which is the debit card,was for my light bill. Due in about 5 hours from now. 345.00 and I don't have it now.

How or can I get my money back?

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Read the Terms & Conditions. There is no ripoff. People do not read contracts.

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

Acai Diet Today is similar to Free Credit Report, Video Professor and many other companies offering "free" products or services. Think about it, why would any company offer to give you anything for free but to gather your name, address, phone number, and credit card number to sell you more product or services. When Denny's restaurants gave away their free Grand Slam breakfast (worth $4.99), they were promoting their dine-in eating experience. I am sure not all of the people who waited in line for the free breakfast only drank water. There are many people who ordered milk, orange juice or coffee.

Read the Terms and Conditons. There is no ripoff. People do not read the contracts.
