Scam Description

The solicitation popped up and stated Ketosium XS can be tried for $6.95 for each product. It gave the impression you could try it for that amount and purchase more if you liked it. The 2 bottles arrived without an invoice which I found strange.Then two weeks later I was charged $193.90. I was not able to locate the website, but found a number on the bottle. I explained there wasn’t anything stated regarding a trial period or the ridiculous price. She said it’s in the terms and conditions and that the trial started on the purchase date. Even though I wasn’t aware of the trial period, I sent an email asking how can you start a trial period on the purchase date? To try a product wouldn’t it have to be in yout procession? This is a charge I can’t afford and I truly don’t understand why they wouldn’t refund my money. I searched the internet and found someone else also stated this is a scam. They stated thatthey will tell you it’s $6.95 and then will charge you $96.95. I thought I was being careful and had read everything. This was a true ripoff and should not continue. There should be laws stating everything should be visible not hidden in terms and conditions. Terms and conditions I still haven’t been able to read, because I can’t find their website.
