New Vitality Vitamins Pulled the old order a free trial sample then charged me for another full price order (plus shipping) later that I did not authorize. Farmingdale, New York

*UPDATE Employee: New Vitality

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

Saw the ad for a free trial sample (only pay shipping and handling-$6.99).  Got it, didn't work. 

Checked my bank account a few weeks later and there was a charge from this company for $39.96 for what they say was a "reoccurring" order of the same worthless vitamins. 

It's an old story of the same scam.  Get someone to try something "free" then try to hold them to some bullshit scam of sending them stuff they don't want. 

I'm sure you have seen the same many times.  If I ever see their spokesperson, Joe Theisman, I will slap him in the face.  He should be ashamed.  He was a great football player but now he is just a scam tool.

AUTHOR: New Vitality - (United States of America)

To Anonymous,
We are deeply concerned over your unfortunate comments; we have a very large customer base and when things like this happen it often makes us wonder how it did and what can be done to resolve the situation. To assure quality for our Sales and our Customer Service Representatives we do record our telephone conversations in order to find any fault if any on our offerings. 
We do not automatically apply a charge and shipment to your credit card after the first order has shipped, that will only happen if you desire to get a discount on future orders by signing up for our Preferred Customer Program. All our Sales Representative read from a legally approved script and explain the benefits of the Preferred Customer Program which would guarantee the customer a special promotion to receive all future shipments at a discounted price for a one month (or more) supply of the product; the order is only placed when the customer accepts the offer. All customers are advised if they do not want to continue to receive future shipments of the product to call our Customer Service Department within thirty days to cancel future shipments; the Sales Representative does provide the number for the customer to call and cancel on the initial sales call. 
Also, our website clearly explains the terms of the Preferred Customer Program. All customers are advised if they do not want to continue to receive future shipments of the product to call our Customer Service Department to cancel future shipments; the same is also stated on the invoice that is sent along to the customer as well as on the order confirmation email. The confirmation email also has our contact information besides phone. In addition to our phone line our Customer Service Department can be reached by email or standard mail.
Our Customer Service Representatives (all Customer Service Representatives read from an approved script) explain all the options the customers have available to modify or reschedule their next shipment date of the product based on their individual situation(s) i.e. low on funds, moving, traveling, or usage. The customers are advised if they do not want to continue to receive future shipments of the product or if they want to return a product for credit to call our Customer Service Department before the mutually agreed date. 
Finally, we dont contact customers if they remove their credit card information from our website and the customer cant cancel their participation from the Preferred Customer Program via our website. This is accomplished by our Customer Service Department. We ensure cancellation instructions are left on each invoice as well as provided initially during the order. In no area of documentation does New Vitality state cancellation is processed through our website.
We would like to get your order information to research your problem and try and both satisfy you as a customer and possibly learn if there was any fault on our representatives side by listening to the calls when they came into our center. We value you as a customer and never want you to have any dissatisfaction. Please call our Customer Service Department and speak with one of our Customer Service Representatives, that phone number is 1-800-943-6465. We promise that we will do everything possible to make you a happy customer. 
Thank you.
