I will never order through Guthy-Renker again.I have tried multiple times to cancel my order through them for Pro-Active and some vitamins that I never received but they keep telling me that there is nothing I can do.

I now have to change my credit card information so that I can stop the charges against my account. THEY ARE AWFUL!!!!!!!!!!! My account was overdrawn and they just keep saying to refuse product when it is delivered but the products have never even been delivered.

Does anyone know what can be done to stop this from happening to someone else?The customer service department is a joke.

When ordering Proactiv 3 step, I had the option to add the Vitaclear vitamins to my order for FREE. I recieved my vitamins with my proactiv order.
It's been a month and today I found the Vitaclear vitamins on my door step. I did not plan on keeping the orders coming. They sent me a 90 day supply, which came out to be around $100(paid over the course of 3 months)
I called and complained, because I never agreed to continue with the vitamins. The woman said it was no problem, reimbursed my credit card, canceled the next orders and told me to keep the 90 day supply of vitamins.
She also said it was "added by mistake" and that she knew I didn't try to keep the orders coming. Seems like this whole brand had a TON of those miscommunications.
It happened to me with proactiv products before.
ALWAYS check your order summaries of you are going to continue purchasing ANYTHING from this company. They are really good at "sneaking" items into your order and charging. However, I was very please with the coustomer service I recieved today. I figured it would be an on going event. I'm sorry everyone's having such a hard time with this. Keep calling and complaining. Hopefully it will work out!

I keep trying to call all the numbers that people are posting and keep getting an automated message that "the mailbox hasn't been set up yet" I can't even get through to anyone to cancel! Stay away!

I have called them twice. The second time she assured me she was cancelling my "subscription" and my money would be refunded. Also, I would get a confirmation email which I have never received. They have charged me for three shipments. I received one which I returned. The other two never came. I have not been refunded my money. Not only will I never order anything from them or Proactiv again but I am going to find the name and email address of the Guthy Renker CEO and contact them. This is FRAUD.

Look at this website and call the customer representative right now and tell them to cancel all orders.

I am going through the same problem now. I returned vitamins and they are still charging my account. I just had to put a stop with the bank on any future charges.
There customer service is terrible. They tell me it can take up to 2 months for a return to go through. Stay far away from this rip off company.

This company has never been honest and never will be honest to anyone...i used to workfor them and believe this...if u think they treat their customers like ***....they treated us employees worse especially if we spoke up. I also noticed when i got my w2, that they cheated me out of comission by hundreds of dollars. Good thing i was advised to keep track of every penny. They train you to lie and apologise repeatedly and dont put care in customers requests. Tell everyone you know not to buy any product video or excercise equip from this company...boycott it. And btw their employees are not screened for ur cc info...so no back ground checks they hire anyone! And ttheir call centers are in Brevard,NC. And Covinton,LA. And India. Spread the word.

I just called the 888-788-7469 number to try and get an email address or fax number to send my proof of mailing to return my vitaclear vitiamins. They said they do not have a email address, and I was given a fax number of 515-284- 6745..I said to the little guy I was talking to: " I've been reading your reviews concerning returns.....and you are taught to lie to the customer, right...He said yes you're right." This whole thing is just a fraud! Please....no one should order from the Guthy Renker people.

I was totally ready for that to be a *** show, but I just called them and told them clearly that I didn't want the product, never ordered it, I wanted to return it for a full refund and cancel any future shipments.

They immediately said sure, we'll send you a shipping label and then refund your money, and you won't receive any further shipments.

I think the number of complaints they were getting must have made them stop scamming people, but I'll come back and let you know if it doesn't work out...
