    I ordered a diet pill from Acai Burn last night and stupid me didnt look much into it i guess you could say i got sucked in by it without knowing.
    Im worried because i dont want the product after reading all the scams about it.
    I have tried to email them with no luck to tell them that i no longer want the product and not to charge me at all i have also tried to ring them and the number does not exsist at all. I just dont know what to do and how to stop them from taking money from my credit card . Does anybody know how to get through this please help if you do im really worried

    Kind Regards

    Can't you call your credit card company and cancel anymore payments to them? You already bought it, my best guess is that you'll have to eat the mistake and just cancel the card or cancel the payment. They can't steal your money if the credit company won't let them.

    Call your credit card company.  Explain that you've tried to reach a customer service person; however, the number is not in service. They can possibly do what is called a "charge back" to put the money back into your account.

    I agree with DarleneMarie. You can typically dispute the charges on your credit card, at which point you will be given the opportunity to explain the situation to the bank. Often, the credit card companies will side with the consumer, but this depends on the details of the situation.

    In regards to the diet pills, I was reading an article the other day, where they stated that many of the "all natural" diet pills actually use existing diet medicines to show results and are not really "all natural."

    Anyway, sorry to hear about your problems.

    nothing natural about bottled vitamins, herbs, berries, etc.

    I make that claim all inclusive.  Organic medicine IS a scam.

      re: CC scam.  It should be an easy process to dispute any bad practice and have the money returned to you.  I have been through this process more than a few times.  Always had my money returned.  I could cite examples from total scum feeding scammers up to possible mistakes of very high profile companies but with poor customer service.  In the end, I always got my money back but with patience (sometimes but a thread).  Talk to your bank.  Email the company and dont be helpful to them just make your demands in a diplomatic way and let them know you have approached the bank and why you are not happy.
