The truth is that, if you read the small print, you’ll see that there is an agreement with the free-trial. You are actually ordering a free-trial, that part is legit… but what you don’t know is that you will also be put in an autoshipment plan for anywhere between $50-$100 every month for another bottle of their acai berry supplement.
Is this considered a scam or a fraud?
No, it is not considered a scam, but it is very fishy. Anytime you buy or sign an agreement it’s your responsibility to read the agreement. However, since they make very CLEAR that it’s a free trial, a lot of people will simply ignore or forget to cancel the autoshipment.
It will usually be in the form of a little checkbox or a small-print agreement under the order form.
What about the contact numbers to cancel, when you realize you are getting billed?
When you realize that you are getting billed by their company on the next month’s credit card statement you realize that you are in the autoshipment program. You try to find the number to cancel, and when you call it, it’s almost impossible to cancel. The number is either wrong or signals busy… It can be a real nightmare to cancel and this is the part that most people think is the scam or fradulent part of the acai berry supplement business. The pills are extremely popular and they are making thousands of sales every day… Imagine how busy the cancel people actually are.
Some acai berry producst however, do have legit ways to cancel, through online forms and legit numbers.
When you realize that it will be hard to cancel, you ask yourself what you have just done. That’s why you do not want to put yourself in a position where you are being billed without knowing.
The good thing with acai berry supplements however, is that it’s basically the only way to get acai berry benefits, because the fruit gets spoiled within 24-48 hours of being picked, so it needs to be processed fast.
