i applied for free trial but only paying postage and packaging. This was for one trial only. I am now receiving products from this company on a monthly basis with a charge of £75 every month directly from my credit card account. I have tried to contact the company but to no avail. Apart from the financial hit their claims for their products seem hugely inflated!

[03/06/2012] Milena: Hi there. I had a very similar problem a couple of months ago with a different company offering "free samples". They charged my credit card regularly. Apparently I have ticked the box "Terms and conditions" where it was stated that there is this monthly subscription. Obviously, I haven't read it - and there is their trick.
It was very hard to find the company details but I found them by visiting similar websites /like this one/.
First thing I did was to call the bank in order to stop the direct debits from my credit card - it was really hard because the bank says "you subscribed". I insisted and begged to the bottom of my dignity, including saying that "I choose your bank because I thought I can rely on you on such issues and this is why I am banking with you, and you should be there to help me etc. etc." So they did stop the direct debits.
Next was to send a number of letters to the company to cancel my subscribtion - some of them not quite kind to be honest.
But it worked - they only managed to charge me twice.
From then on I put every "free sample" offer on Google - and most of them turn to be scams.
As we say - nothing is free in this life - only the cheese in the mouse-trap.
Act quickly otherwise it may cost you a fortune.
[25/06/2012] Michael Martin-Smith: To Linda Boxer, I am sorry to tell you that NO slimming tablets actually work, except as a quickfix, followed by rebound weight gain. Nutrascience is known junk. If all else fails, you could cancel your credit card, tear it up, and try for a new account. Quite a hassle, but might get you off the hook.
Failing that, try Mossad! They can be very effective...
