I cant believe what I am reading on this site!! How can people just give out their CC numbers without doing proper research first!! We live in a world where there are scams and these things DO happen! The Acai berry products are still very new. How many people have you heard of that can actually confirm that it works??
Rather stick to the old remidies that we know work and that have been proven to show results. Here is a good mixture that really works, it is natural and can help with weight loss, even if no exersise is done:
3)Apple Cider (tablets or liquid)
4)Green tea (up to 4 cups a day)
5)CLA (with or without Hoodia)
6)Whey Protein (to replace with 2 meals daily)
7)Very Important!! WATER!! Up to 2 ltrs a day!! Note: Please consult a doctor first! I hope this info helps for those who want to loose weight! I know it helped me!

I tried Acai Berry approx 1 year ago, I took it as prescribed to lose weight for over 2 months and didnt lose any weight. I know that exercise and diet have a lot to do with taking off weight, I eat well but have heart conditions and chronic neck and back pain that hinders me from doing too much exercise. I feel that the acai berry was a scam... Beware anyone who thinks this VERY EXPENSIVE product will help them to lose weight, if anything is helping you its change in exercise and diet... Good luck everyone

I had a sketchy feeling about the acai products. I ordered mine online with a prepaid visa because I did not want to give my real credit card information. I found out my sister has been getting charged every month for the exact same thing, until she canceled her credit card. It's a huge scam!
EC: Such a scam!! Oprah recently even added a disclaimer to her website about acai berry products. Apparently she was getting flack for promoting an acai berry product on her show once.

EC, I am posting this in response to your request for information ref the Acai Berry scams..
This has also been posted at:
I placed an order for the free trial of Acai from these people also. AFTER entering my CC info, they sprung the "terms agreement" of:
1. ongoing monthly automatic Acai shipment at $85.91 per month, PLUS
2. some OTHER membership thing called Fit Factory for ANOTHER $29.95 per month, PLUS
3. some OTHER thing called Cost Smashers for $2.95 per month.
There are 3 separate numbers to cancel these 3 separate little piggybacks.
Thank God I emailed the "terms agreement" to myself to read it, since it didn't show until AFTER they had my card #.
When I call to cancel this it either:
1. Hangs up without ringing
2. Comes on with a voice recording which says please hold, then proceeds to fritz the connection and disconnect
3. Never rings at all.
It's very clear that these people don't WANT to be contacted. So I have called my bank and cancelled the CC; Thank God no further charges seem to have been made so far.
This company is named 'Natures Acai Berry',
Their address is
20100 S. Vermont Ave.
Torrance, CA 90502
I notice that their Company name apparently USED to be 'Natures Best Acai Berry', they're apparently trying to dodge.
This stuff is distributed by Amir and Sanchez Neutraceuticals, whose address is:
Amir and Sanchez Neutraceuticals
5425 E. Broadway Rd #282
Tucson, AZ 85711
By the way, this stuff has VERY LITTLE Acai berry in it; It actually consists of:
Chromium (Metabolic booster)
Green Tea Extract (High in Caffeine) 225 mg
EGCG (A component of Green Tea which suppresses allergic reactions!!!) 135 mg
Caffeine 200 mg
Acai berry extract 50 mg!!!!!!! (Must have squeezed a single berry over the vat)
L-Theanine (Another Green Tea component) 8 mg
So- What it REALLY is, is Chromium, Green Tea, caffeine and a tad of Acai.
I am posting this here hoping it will help somebody else NOT get taken...
Good Luck, everyone- Fight the good fight. This is bad business.

I WANT TO PIGGY BACK ON WHAT TERRY SAID ABOUT THE ACAI BERRY PILLS FOR WEIGHT LOSS. I WAS FURIOUS WHEN I ORDERED THE PILLS AND GAVE MY CREDIT CARD. IT WAS SUPPOSE TO BE A TRIAL SAMPLE AND YOU HAD 30 DAYS TO TRY IT OUT FOR A $1. WHAT THEY DID WAS THEY DIDN'T SEND ME THE PILLS UNTIL MY 30 DAYS WERE UP AND CHARGED ME $89. I HAD A NUMBER TO CALL AND THE FIRST THING CAME OUT OF THERE MOUTH WAS I COULDN'T GET MY MONEY BACK BECAUSE IT WAS PASS THE 30 DAYS. I AM STILL TRYING TO FIND OUT HOW TO GET MY MONEY BACK. I STILL HAVE THE PACKAGE IT CAME IN SO I CAN PROVE I DIDN'T RECEIVE THE PILLS UNTIL WAY OVER A MONTH AFTER ORDERING THEM. THE CARD WAS CHARGED WAY BEFORE I GOT THE PILLS. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO MAD IN MY LIFE. IT WAS A RIP OFF SCAM. AT LEAST GIVE ME THE CHANCE TO TRY THE PRODUCT AT THE OFFER OF A $1 AND IF I DON'T LIKE IT I COULD SEND IT BACK BEFORE BEING CHARGED. NEVER USED THE PILLS I WAS SO MAD. HELP ME PLEASE

ACAI Scam: Please tell your subscribers to read the fine print befor ordering the Acaia Berry weight loss pills. I ordered the pay postage only for a trial weeks supply. I gave them my credit card to pay for the postage cost. I received the sample pills that didn't do anything. I didn't contact the company because the pills were worthless in my estimation. About a week later I received a months supply, and they charged my card a whopping $89.00. I was furious. Then I went looking for a phone for the company and lo and behold they didn't have one, the company wasn't registered in FLORIDA, but they had a service in Utah that handled there orders. I called them and they said they could not refund any cash period. I then told them I was going to the States Atty. Gen. office and filing a complaint against them. Well, to make a story short I settled for 1/2 my money back (which I shouldn't have) the pills were probably only worth (retail) $19.95 or a $1.00. I then went to the internet and found out that most of the companies selling Acai were all from Florida, with no phone number or address. Tell all your subscribers to PLEASE READ THE FINE PRINT WHEN ORDERING THE FREE SAMPLE. Terry
I have been reading a lot of late about the fantastic anti-oxidant power of this acai berry. Have also read that it is very good for weight loss. Has anyone tried this for this purpose, did it work and did you use it alone or with a colon cleanse? Some articles I have read suggest that is has colon cleansing properties and others seem to suggest that the two need to be used in conjunction with each other. I would be very interested in anyone's personal experiences. Looking forward to feedback. Thanks.
