Premier Green Coffee - Near impossible to cancel and find the number to call

A sucker, they say, is born every minute. In fact, there are plenty of shady businesspeople out there hoping to find a new sucker every hour or so. If they can find someone to buy their bad advertising or product, they can wind up with some decent profits.

Of course, the shady marketers wouldn’t be shady if they actually played by the rules of business and followed the law for that matter. Even if they just skirt along the edge of the law, there is plenty that they are doing that is unethical, even if it’s not technically illegal.

The Coffee Scam

Take, for example, almost anything for sale in the diet and weight loss industry. Every new trend seems to find followers almost immediately, and websites rush to create sites to make money off the latest and greatest weight-loss secret.

One of the biggest new “secrets” in weight loss is green coffee beans. They work miracles! Lose 10 pounds overnight! Insert empty promise here!

The green coffee beans seemed like a great deal. They were certified by one of the biggest names in weight loss – or at least it appeared that they were – and what could the desperate dieters have to lose on such a sure thing?

Plenty as it turns out.

Rebilling Credit Cards

The scam works something like this:

You read a website carefully and see that there is a satisfaction guarantee and a trial period when you order. The website appears credible with endorsements by well-known figures. You figure you might as well give it a try.

You’ll just cancel before the trial period is over.

And that’s where they get you.

You sign up. The guy on the other end of the website has no intention of letting you, and more importantly your credit card information, go anywhere at all.

When you call to cancel your subscription, you might have some trouble getting through to customer service. You might actually talk to someone or you may get a busy signal for fourteen days. If you are lucky enough to get someone on the line, they aren’t looking to help you.

Pretty soon you receive a package in the mail. It’s more coffee beans! But you cancelled, right?

You call back.

Now you get a busy signal for sure. You check your credit card statement. You’re out almost $75! You call again. And again.

Don’t expect anyone to answer – why would they? They have their money and they will keep on getting it since you can’t cancel if nobody answers the phone!

Scammed Again!

This is the principal behind a shady or potentially illegal rebill. The company rebills your credit card monthly for a large sum, sends you a product that is skeptical at best so that they can claim they aren’t stealing your money, and the cycle continues until you’re lucky enough to finally break it off or you take action through your credit card.

Sadly working with your credit card is usually much more effective than trying to work with the shady business or website.

After all, the company will remind you when you are lucky enough to talk to a person, you signed up for the rebill!

And you did. It’s down there in the very fine print at the bottom of the page. You okayed the future transactions when you signed up the first time.

The lesson here?

Read the fine print.

And avoid anything that seems to be a bit too good to be true, of course.

Just remember that shady marketer out there is hoping you’ll be the sucker he’s been waiting for!
