I have not received nay products.

EDitor's Suggestions on how to get your money back!


Go to your bank within 60 days of the charge, or as soon as you know about the charge, don't delay, and tell them that there has been fraudulent activity within your account. Explain that you wish to file a dispute, and demand that they assist you in accordance with Federal Regulation E.

According to the majority of victims interviewed by Rip-off Report, those who immediately called their banks to dispute the charges did not get very far. Many victims got the following responses from their banks: “we could not do anything for you” or “you waited too long; it has been more than 60 days”.

If the bank is says that you have waited too long, explain to them how you called their 800 number as soon as the charges were found, and were told by the bank that nothing could be done. Remind the bank that they failed to assist you properly at the 800 #, and instead, provided you with an inadequate explanation of your right to dispute. Tell the bank that it's their fault time has expired, and since they gave you the wrong info to begin with, they will just have to deal with it, take the loss and reverse the charges.

Tell them the truth; this was unauthorized and your account was NOT to be charged! Keep emphasizing how you never authorized anything! Direct them to the hundreds of victims reports that were filed on Rip-off And if you're at the bank, walk them over to their computer and make them go to this site! If you are on the phone with them, tell them you will wait while they access this site! Either way, be persistent!


Let them know nicely, that you were advised to Report them (the Bank) and this situation to the Banking Commission in your state. Since each state has a different name for the agency/controller over banks, find that name before you call or get to the bank so you can throw it in their face. The more knowledgeable you appear to be, the further you will get.

And just continue to demand the Federal Regulation E form! The bank CAN, MUST and WILL reverse the charge! But, you must be persistent; ask to speak to the supervisor or the area manager for all the branches in the state.

Let the bank personnel know you are meeting with the media later in the day, that you would much rather they do the right thing (as most other banks have) by looking at the complaints and immediately reversing the charge(s) to your account; no matter how long ago it was. Be sure to call the Media if necessary so you are telling the truth.

If you have to, be loud (but nice) in front of other customers. If you are just calling by phone, the above tactics should still work. The bank can easily fax or mail to you the Federal Regulation E dispute form.


If the charge was to your credit card (not debit card, check card, or checking account), contact the credit card company as soon as possible to request a dispute form. Consumers usually have a little longer to dispute fraudulent credit card charges (up to 6 months), but it is better to act right away. In this type of situation, credit card disputes are usually successful since fraudulent companies often won't contest the disputed charge. In rare cases, credit card companies will review disputes, but refuse to reverse the charges. If this occurs, complain to a manager and let them know you will be filing a report here.

Remember… Don't let them get away with it! Make sure they make the Rip-off Report .. The more Reports filed on a Company or individual, the more likely it is that the authorities, media and attorneys will want to take action.

And good luck… Let us know how you do!

AUTHOR: Sandy - (United States of America)

I feel like I was ripped off. I was informed that a News Columnist, Julia Miller, tried the product and swore by it. I thought that I would order at the cheap price of 6.95 and would cancel the membership soon. I ordered on a Thursday and tried to cancel on a Saturday. However they were not opened on the weekends. I had a hard time reaching the company on Monday and by the
time I thought to call it was a few minutes unitl 5 CST. I was actually on hold when the phone hung up, so I called back only to get the message that they were closed.

I called the following morning and waited on the phone for 30 minutes. When I asked to cancel my membership the worker stated that I was already charged and wouldn't be charged any more money. I assumed ishe was talking about the $6.95. Well I felt relieved at that moment.
The following day I looked at my bank account and $199 had been charged to my account. I have not received the product and today is the 7th day from the day that I ordered the product. I called to complain but was told that I had been advised that I had 72 hours to cancel my membership. The lady also stated that you could cancel online. In the original Terms I did not read that.  The confirmation email showed it, but I didn't look at the confirmation until today. When I read the Terms it stated that after a  Free 3 Day Trial then your card would be charged. How can you "Try" the product if you don't have it? This is ridiculous to lose $200 when all I wanted was to try the supplement.
