Comments:I was one of the ones suckered by the free trial. As soon as the Resveratrol came, I realized it was no different than the Resveratrol I had been buying at the grocery store. I immediately cancelled the trial. It is impossible to cancel on line, and almost impossible to cancel by phone. I had to call three times before I could understand the person on the other end, and then that person hung up on me when I said I wanted to cancel. Eventually I managed to cancel but the phone went dead before they gave me the cancellation confirmation number. It did get canceled but my free trial cost me about $85.00 when I got the charge on my credit card. Not only that but apparently in the fine print I signed up for Black Expressions, a book club aimed towards African Americans who like pornography. I was also signed up for a jewelry club which sent me cheeap jewelry every two weeks, and a make-up club. That was the first time I had ever bought from an on-line promotion, and, my last. From now on, I will stick to buying on line from companies that I know are legitimate. These people should be stopped, as should all that use that kind of false advertising and hidden partners.
