Please remove my account with Health Science Institute. Thank You

Financially unable to go for any procedures. Why would you ask to write at least 100 symbols...that only made me sure that no longer want anything to do with this company! There are many physicians that can provide us with lots of information about our birth defect, and I don't trust a company that reacts the way you have!! Do not remove any money from my account!

User's recommendation: No longer.

Unfortunately, you have learned a valuable lesson. NEVER EVER NEVER give up your credit card number over the telephone.

EVER. The only way to get your money back is to claim damages to the Federal Trade Commission, and in their own defense, they're going to point to all the fine print. Sorry, you probably couldn't afford what they ripped you off for. The only good defense is SELF-DEFENSE.

DO N O T give your card number voluntarily. EVER. I learned the hard way from somebody claiming he was working his way thru school, those *** ripped me off for $2,000 -- he was working in a boiler room in Michigan which makes probably millions ripping peoples' credit cards off. Believe me, it CAN be worse.

Take your lesson and run. I hope you learned something.

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

Unauthorized charges

.I got an email offering me a deal for two sports cameras for &;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;29.95 and that they would include a free tactical weapons bag along with a gun magnet. They charge me $59.95 which was an additional $30.00 which must have been the membership fee. I was told the products would arrive within 2 to 3 weeks. I told them it needed to be here in that time frame or sooner because I was only ordering the product to take with me and a buddy who were going on a camping trip. It was suggested that I would have my merchandise by then. The order was placed in February. Now it is May 9 and I still do not have any of the merchandise I ordered and paid for. So after jumping through numerous hoops in order for them to even accept my phone call at customer service. I called customer service to have this issue remedied and instead of them handling it there as they should, They made me send an email with a plethora of information and suggested that I should hear back from someone within 24 to 48 hours with an explanation. If it is required that I have to go beyond this process in order to get a refund for the unexplained $99 charge, I will simply dispute it through my credit card company. It should not be this difficult to remedy a simple or at least I hope just a simple mistake!

User's recommendation: The order was placed in February. Now it is May 9 and I still do not have any of the merchandise I ordered and paid for.

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.

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.
