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

I purchsed this product hoping to quit smoking. However, I told the telemarketer that I was trying to get pregnant and I didn't want to use this product if I shoudn't take it when I am pregnant. He convinced me to purchase the product anyway. He said to stop taking it in the event of pregnancy. However, you could be pregnant for an entire month and not know it.

I would be taking the Nicodil pills during that time. On the box that the pills came in it said, "Do not take if you are pregnant or nursing." I called my doctor and was advised not to take the pills. I then returned three out of the four bottles (they would not refund me for all four)and days later was billed $199 on my credit card.

I was mislead into thinking the product would be safe for me and my situation and after returning the product was charged anyway. I am outraged and disgusted.

to 'smart' Tom ..Yes, you right Tom we look like an idiots when we agreed to give you our credit card number.

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

Well, If you look at the number of reports that "idiots" posted there you will see that the total of "idiots" is 62 on "treehouse" search and 34 on "tree house" search ... And we do not know what other name that 'smart' company is using to rip people off. Maybe it is 'Insta Trim'?

Yes, you right Tom we look like an idiots when we agreed to give you our credit card number.
But the real idiot is you and the people who work with you. If your goods were any help, believe me you would not be seeing that many 'idiots' writing the rip of reports on you. You have my 2 hundred dollars - be happy for now and remember there will be a day when you will be very sorry for your words and your acts.

Better bone up on those grammar skills if you want to call people idiots

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

Tom... it seems like you could HAVE (not "of") came UP (not "across") with a better rebuttal THAN (not "then") simply repeating the word "idiot" several times. If you are a representative of this company, you serve as a shining example of the lack of professionalism and customer concern that the original complaint alleges. The salesman should have had enough ethics not to push a product on someone whom he knew should not use it. The company should have had the integrity to issue the refund they agreed to.

Of course, the consumer should have known better than to purchase the products in the first place. She wanted to quit smoking since she planned on becoming pregnant, and the salesman played on this desire to sell her a dangerous product.

It is not the consumer's responsibility to ensure that a business is ran ethically and morally. Rachel may have made a bad judgement call, and then later had the sense to consult with a doctor, but a company that can't screen its clients and follow through on promises is doing something much worse than that.
