Acai Berry 'Free Trial' Scam Offers
The Anatomy Of The Scam & How To Avoid Them
Free Trial Acai Berry Juice Scam Offers are common and somewhat ubiquitous on the Internet, especially in the acai berry juice market. And while some of these 'free offers' are quickly found by authorities, often times they open back up under a different business name within hours of being shut down.(1)
Let's get more familiar with the anatomy of the 'free trial scam'; some of this may sound familiar. First, you receive an enticing offer to try a new acai berry juice product in which all you have to pay for is the shipping and handling (a nominal cost). During sign up, you are presented with other offers such as paid magazine subscriptions, a paid membership to the site (which should be your first warning), free upgraded acai berry juice products and/or almost anything else under the sun. Once you've completed the necessary steps, which include providing your credit card number, the steel-cage door is shut, so to speak, and you're locked into the Free Trial Acai Berry Juice Scam. This is where the nightmare begins.
Under the terms of your agreement, if you don't cancel your acai berry juice auto-ship within 30 days you'll be charged a monthly acai berry subscription.(2) Unfortunately, there is no way to cancel. You look for an email address, telephone number or any other contact information only to find that all you have is a company name, website address and physical post office box location.
Those that are Internet savvy can find the information they need by going to the Internet Domain Registry and doing a search for the domain name. However, you may reach a dead end and find that the acai berry website address is unlisted. The only real way to get the acai berry company information is to either be in law enforcement or know someone with the right connections.
Once you have the acai berry contact information of the company (that's if you get it), you'll likely find an "out of service" message when you try to call them. If you're lucky enough to get a live person on the telephone, you'll be put on hold and transferred from one person to another like a ping-pong ball until you give up. In the end, you may wind up with some hefty telephone charges for your trouble, too.
You may have to resort to disputing the charges with your bank. This could take ages because the banks themselves can't trace and/or verify the acai berry product transactions from these bogus acai berry product companies. Ultimately, out of sheer frustration and disgust, you have to cancel your credit card - another inconvenience! The whole ordeal has taken about three months to 'fix' and you're stuck with at least two months worth of acai berry product that you can't return. Since you can't get your money back you decide that you may as well consume the acai berry product you've purchased but to your dismay, you learn that the acai berry supplement you paid so much for is inferior and the actual acai berry content is almost non-existent!
That's how these scammers make their money, by selling cheap products and locking you into acai berry juice subscription plans.(3) This happens more often with acai berry juice than it does with pills because with the juice you only need to add water to dilute it and unless you have access to a product testing laboratory, (which few people do); you will never know if you're drinking over-priced water or an acai berry supplement.
So how do you know which companies won't scam you?
First, look to see how long the acai berry company has been in business. A company that is not above-board will be here today and gone tomorrow. They will have no proven service history and most will be less than one-year-old.
The second thing to look for is how prominently the company's contact details are being displayed on their website. Is there a mailing address and a working telephone number that you yourself have verified?
Natural Home Cures has been in business since 2004 and our contact information is prominently displayed on almost every page of our website.
The third thing you should make sure to look for is if the company lets you buy their acai berry product as you need it or if you are forced into paying a monthly charge for your acai berry 'subscription'. Alternatively, the site may automatically renew your order every month but not officially lock you into a monthly contract: either 'choice' should be considered unacceptable.
Natural Home Cures only offers a "buy as needed" option with our acai berry products: you are never locked into a fixed recurring monthly charge.
The last thing to look for is the companies' acai berry money back policy. Most acai berry companies typically offer you only 30 days from the date of purchase to return your acai berry product. This means that by the time you receive the first order your return window will have already expired. Returning the acai berry product under the best of circumstances hinges on you being lucky enough to find the companies' contact details.
Natural Home Cures differentiates itself from its competition by offering you the longest money back guarantee in the industry: we let you try our product for up to 4 months.
The sad truth is, most companies that offer free trial acai berry supplements are scammers. They just want your credit card number in order to lock you into a monthly acai berry subscription that, if you'd read all the fine-print, you wouldn't have signed up for in the first place. They sell inferior acai berry products and don't care about your health or well-being.
