HOW TO AVOID ACAI BERRY SCAMS
Every day there are more and more web sites advertising a free-trial bottle of Acai. BEWARE of that word FREE. We have received numerous phone calls and e-mails from desperate consumers who have been victims of acai berry scams. The most widely used acai berry scam is the Free trial offer. Before making a painful mistake read the fine print. You may be signing up for a monthly auto-shipping and auto-billing program. You may think this will not happen to me, but they get your credit card information when you pay for the shipping. Most people are unsuccessfull in cancelling their monthly auto-ship and auto-billing of their credit card. After several attempts to contact these scammers by telephone or e-mail, consumers have had to cancel their credit card.
These sites also have false endorsements from Oprah, the Today show, Rachel Ray, CNN, Reader´s Digest, etc. Don´t be misled—they did not actually endorse a specific acai brand or product. They have stated that the acai berry was rated as the number one “superfood”, and we absolutely agree.
One way to identify a legitimate acai berry website is to make sure they accept multiple forms of payments including PayPal. Why? PayPal does not allow auto-billing and consumers can easily “stop-payment” with PayPal. Acai scam websites do not accept PayPal because they would constantly be in disputes and lose money. Why? Acai berry scam websites pay marketing companies up to $35 per sale to send potential customers to their website. Obviously, if they are paying $35 for you to go to their website and sign-up for a “free-trial”, that trial bottle is NOT REALLY FREE. They are going to take your credit-card info for “shipping”, and then charge it each month for a $89 bottle that contains fillers and very little acai. And if you are like other people that we have spoken to, you will NOT BE ABLE TO CONTACT THEM TO CANCEL THE AUTO-BILLIING.
Here´s another recommendation, does the website list a phone number, and if you call it BEFORE YOU PURCHASE, can you talk to a real person? If not, it is highly unlikely you will reach a person when you are trying to stop that auto-billing. There is always someone answering phone calls at Perfect Supplements M-F from 9am to 5pm EST. During the other hours you can leave a message or send an e-mail and someone will get back to you.
Before signing up for a free-trial of acai berry, we recommend checking the following websites for scam reports on the brand that you are considering :Complaints Board and Rip Off Report. Another helpful tip is to type the brand name followed by the word “scam” into any search engine.
There are a couple of other things you want to look for if you are shopping for a high quality acai supplement. The supplement should list EXACTLY what is in the capsule (preferably only 100% pure freeze dried organic acai berry). Let´s face it, 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. Then with fancy marketing they advertise the product has acai berry plus somthing. Also do not be deceived into buying a low cost acai berry extract which does not have the many benefits of the acai berry.
Verify that 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.
Perfect Supplements offers 100% pure organic freeze dried acai berry supplements with a Consumer Bill of Rights which states, among other things, that you will never be automatically billed for anything at any time, a 100% money back guarantee (minus shipping costs), and a phone number where you can call and talk to a real person.
