Scam???

Supposed to get a report about 9 meds causing Alhzeimer's Disease. I spent about 10 minutes reading about how great you are and not a list of meds did I see. You mentioned two women you used as examples, but nothing about what meds they were taking. When I click on an article that tells me about meds that could be harming me, I don't need a big long "story" about someone else, I want to know about the meds you are talking about. And not have to wait for a "report" to tell me about more testimonials and *** You are just the kind of people that make "journalists" look like *** and talk a bunch of nonsense. Why don't you get a "real" job and quit trying to take advantage of people. a

They reinstated my membership without my permission.

I am concerned that by reinstating my membership without my knowledge or consent they may make unauthorized charges on my credit card from prior membership. I cancelled that membership several months but recently received a Thank You letter saying I rejoined them. Any charges are fraudulent.

User's recommendation: Do not join as a member.

Cost of subscription

I clicked too quickly on the website. Only wanted the books, not a lifetime subscription, and certainly not all the emails. Just want the balance of my money returned to me. But they haven't done thus far.

User's recommendation: Beware before agreeing to anything.

Charged for services not ordered.

My debit card was charged for services not ordered. I go through this every time I make a payment on my husbands account. I have been fighting this since 2017.

His has not fixed problem

UNABLE TO CONTACT BY ALL MEANS

PHONE AND EMAILS ALL HAVE SAME MSAGE, TRY LATER, TRY WEEKDAY, THEY HAVE TOO MUCH BUSINESS TO ANSWER.. SCAM! THEY CLAIM I AM A MEMBER AND CHARGED MY CREDIT CARD 39.96. 10 (TEN) REQUESTS FOR REFUND HAVE BEEN IGNORED. This is a terrible company and their claims are misleading to say the least, according to leading, genuine medical authorities. They are selling dreams!! I PLAN TO GO TO ATTORNEY GENERAL IN MY STATE MAYBE SOME OTHER UNSUSPECTING PEOPLE CAN BE HELPED BY THIS ACTION!

User's recommendation: Do not answer any kind of mail from them, do not respond at all. SCAM.

My letter is undated, so I have no idea when my HSI Membership was due to renew. I DO NOT WANT TO RENEW!!!

It angers me when the phone number in a letter will not allow me to gather the information I need! My name is Lynda Dixon, rkdlad@***.com Please acknowledge my message and confirm that you have cancelled my HSI Membership.

Fraudulent charge-37.00 recurring debit

Ive never heard of them and dont know how they got my debit card information as all the many others who were scammed. I hope someone is checking into this. It looks like theyve been getting away with it for several years. I to will report them to my bank to stop recurring payments

User's recommendation: Report them to the attorney general’s office and your bank.
