This is a complete scam. I signed up for the free trial offer of one bottle of acaiberry supplement. I was to pay the shipping of 5.99 plus 1.00 for handling. In a very small font footnote on the lower part of trial offer page, I guess there was a disclosure, that I failed to read, at the time, indicating I was to call or email acaicleanse300 in 14 days to cancel a membership. The membership was news to me, as I did not know I joined a club.

12 days after receiving the trial bottle, I received 2 more bottles of the acaiberry supplements. I tried many times to call the toll-free customer support number, it was a recording and I was told to hold for a representative. The recording never changed and after several hours throughout the day trying to get through to talk with someone, I quit. The packing slip said I was being charged $88.97 every 30 days for the acaiberrry supplement.

I did not even get to call and cancel, nor did I know I was going to receive 2 more bottles of the phoney junk (that, by the way, did absolutely nothing for my body). This morning, I finally got through to a man named Iwin at the 8664407533 support number. The rep. said I was too late in canceling my membership and that I would not receive a refund, he told me to f*ck-off and hung up on me.

I am scared that my credit card will be used fraudulently. I am not going to get my $90.00 back nor are the acaiberry herbal pills any good at all. In fact, this is all a very huge credit card scam, and very scary. I am upset beyond belief, as I am quite sure I used my debit card, and my money will be drained from my checking account. I deserve a full refund. This scam needs to be stopped!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Not a Scam

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

I don't think that it is a scam this company is running. For some reason I believe that most people who complain about this sort of thing have either not read terms of use or forgot to cancel. I took it upon myself to check out these complaints and take a look at these offers.

I have ordered and canceled 3 of these offers and they do seem to play by the rules that they have set. I also have seen some offers which give incentives for certain purchases. Which in no way would be the reason for the people, on this and other complaint boards, to buy this product right?

Ask yourselves these questions before pointing the finger! Did you not read the terms? I believe that they were written in English. Did you take up an offer to get something out of it for free on the back end? If so, then obviously you were trying to rip the company off yourselves. Why the anonymous complaints?

Why are people so scared to put their names at least so that these complaints can be followed up and verified? These complaint boards require no verification. It almost seems to me that some of these complaints are made by competitors. It is a simple fact that complaints which are not verified are not valid. Complaining to the BBB and attorney general etc.

The only reason that companies even give in to these things is that it is not worth their time to go through administrative research and spend money on these complaints. They just let them go. The consumer would lose 9 out of 10 in a study done by me and my team about the matter. It just isn't worth the businesses time in a profit sense to spend time fighting the few out of the many legitimate customers.

Also an independent study has shown that the consumer in the US is a much bigger liability then elsewhere in the world. So a lot of companies here don't even sell to US citizens. It's just not worth the effort. Imagine that! Consumers feel that retailers and manufacturers are in debt to them. Well I beg to differ.

It is the consumer that is in debt to the businesses. Consumers aren't doing a favor to businesses buying from them. I will give you the reason. The reason for this is that consumers would have to make everything they buy now! If you want a house, you would have to build it yourself! Remember there are no contractors!

If you want to watch TV... no one to make and sell them to you, so... you would have to go to school and get an education to learn how to make a flat screen, If you want a credit card, you would have to make the plastic go and figure out how to put the black strip on your card, make an ID to match that card and finance yourself.... oh wait a min... You would have to make money too....WOW!

If you want to drive a car... you would have to get an engineering degree, design the car then learn how to build the engine, so you would have to learn to be a machinist, don't get me started on the body and interior of the vehicle!. If you want to better your health you would have to get an PhD in pharmaceuticals, 8 years, get a degree in engineering to make the equipment to make each pill that you would take, oh wait a min.

you would have to do extensive field research to find out which extracts from which plants and animals will get you the vitamins your body needs and in what doses. You see... I can go on and on and on. There is no way imaginable that the average Joe consumer can do that. Not that the consumer isn't smart, although some would argue that fact, but it is impossible to do.

NOTHING would get done! So before pointing fingers about certain things consumers feel that should be mandatory, remember that the businesses aren't in debt to the consumer, the consumer is pretty much in need of the things that they buy and use. Get your selves together and take some RESPOSABILITY!

Don't just try to get off the hook by placing the burden on the merchants who sell you the items that you CAN'T make yourself. Stop being a liability to the economy! The simplest thing to do is deny responsibility, and the easiest thing is to put the burden of that responsibility upon someone else! Why would any business be in business if it were not to turn a profit!

Oh yes... that good old thing called PROFIT! Business owners take upon the headache of getting things rolling, dealing with lazy employees who want something for nothing! Oh yes, most consumers in the U.S fall into that category! There have been studies that have proven that the American work force is the most inefficient workforce in the world! Google it and compare it to other countries and industries. Overpaid and underperformed, that is the main reason we have a hard time competing with other economies as far as competition! I guess what I'm trying to say is... STOP being lazy, self centered and PLEASE take some RESPONSIBILITY!

Read contracts so that you understand everything clearly, help yourselves instead of hurting others and other businesses that employ people like yourselves! One day you may wake up and realize that there very little goods to be bought and no jobs because companies and businesses have all tired of this kind of behavior! Be RESPONSIBLE!

P.S. The BBB, is a profit oriented organization, members who PAY to be part of the BBB are favored and do not receive bad grades! So how does that settle in your stomachs?!
