There is a famous saying that nothing in this world comes for free. People around the world are in for a rude shock when a scam is unearthed involving Queen of Talk shows Oprah Winfery and Acai berry.
The sales of Acai berry which was projected as a weight loss product soared as Oprah endorsed it. The berry was believed to possess some amazing properties. It was supposed to benefit the human community by increasing mental acuity, help in weight reduction and speed up metabolism rate, enhancing visual sharpness and many more. Oprah first introduced this acai product as a Super Food, with loads of benefits fitted in one product but as the days went on, people got aware of the false claims made by the product manufacturers.
The acai berry scams was bigger than initially thought. It involved not only false claims but also swindled people out of their money by getting them involved in various schemes relating to the product. Some people even registered themselves in programs related to diet and fitness consultation service, thus paying huge amounts. Customers not reading the fine print indicating terms and service were the heavy sufferers.
The date when the free trial period of acai berry starts is not explicitly mentioned leaving customers guessing and finally they are charged money up to $90. On the top of it if someone wants to cancel the agreement then there is another trouble waiting. The customer service is very poor leaving people red faced and nowhere to go. There is no one to answer your queries and solve them.
It?s entirely on the people to cross check the subscriptions before logging on to them. The product may have certain features that are really genuine but everything should be made clear before buying. There are numerous scams relating to weight loss where the product does opposite to what it is supposed to do. Acai Berry Scam is just one small part of it.
Recently Oprah has sued 40 companies selling acai berry.
