Every day there are more and more web sites advertising a free-trial bottle of Acai. The word FREE should be treated with caution. I have been made aware of several acai berry scams in the UK. The most widely used acai berry scam is the Free trial offer. Be very careful, you could be signing up for a monthly auto-shipping and auto-billing program. You may think this will not happen to you, but when they get your credit card information and you pay for the shipping they already have your details.
Once you realize it’s too late! Many people are unsuccessful in cancelling this monthly charge for auto-shipping and auto-billing off their credit card. After several unsuccessful attempts to contact these scammers the only resort is to cancel their credit card.
The sites of these scamsters can also have false endorsements from Oprah, The Today Show, Rachel Ray, CNN, Reader´s Digest, etc.
Don´t let this fool you. These people didn’t actually endorse a specific acai brand or product. Instead they have stated that the acai berry was rated as the number one “superfood”, something with which we agree.
In order to identify a legitimate acai berry website make sure they accept multiple forms of payments including PayPal.
Reason being PayPal does not allow auto-billing and consumers can easily stop the payment with PayPal. You also have protection from PayPal should there ever be a dispute.
Acai scam websites do not accept PayPal because they would constantly be in disputes and no doubt have their PayPal account suspended.
Acai berry scam websites operate by paying marketing companies up to £20 ($35) per sale to send potential customers to their website. Obviously, if they are paying £20 for you to go to their website and sign-up for a free-trial, that trial bottle cannot ever be FREE.
That company is going to make it’s money back. They are going to take your credit card information for shipping that FREE trial, and then charge it each month for £50 ($83) a bottle or even more for a bottle of acai berry that isn’t pure and contains mostly fillers.
Once you realise and you try contacting them to cancel and get your money back then you really will struggle.
Another one to watch out for. Do the companies website list a phone number, and can you contact them before committing to the FREE trial? Can you get through to a real person or is it a pre-recorded message? Chances are if the answer to these questions is NO then it is highly unlikely you will reach a person when you are trying to stop that auto-billing.
Remember when shopping for a high quality acai supplement it should list exactly what is in the capsule. This should preferably be only 100% pure freeze dried organic acai berry.
If you are paying a lot of money for acai berry, you don´t want a product full of cheap fillers and other additives. Many companies add other ingrediants to the capsules to lower their cost. Don’t be deceived into buying a low cost acai berry extract which does not have the many benefits of the acai berry.
Ensure there is a money back guarantee if you are unhappy with the product. Again, you might want to look for a phone number on the website and call to verify that someone answers and can confirm their return policy.
I, dmetrader, (herbalpotions.co.uk) only supply 100% pure organic freeze dried acai berry supplements with a 100% money back guarantee (minus any shipping costs if applied), and a phone number where you can call and talk to a real person, well at least me.
