RezV Elite – a familiar scheme

May 26

RezV Elite is a supplement containing the acai berry and resveratrol, a substance found in red wine that is currently undergoing a wide variety of studies. Some of these studies find that mice subjected to resveratrol live longer, other studies show signs of resveratrol preventing prostate cancer. But I’m here to write about this particular RezV Elite product, not resveratrol in general. Learn more about resveratrol and acai berries here.

Upon visiting RezV Elite’s website I instantly noticed some familiar design styles that I’ve noticed on other acai berry scam websites which I’ve written about in the past. Identical color schemes, and even some of the same buttons. They all use similar claims, they promote a free trial where you only pay for shipping. What they don’t advertise very clearly is the fact that if you don’t cancel within 14 days, you will be charged a more significant amount for that trial bottle + every month thereafter. In ResV Elite’s case, that amount is $79.95. Of course, you have to look through their terms and conditions, found through a small link at the bottom of their website to learn the true cost.

Now, I have no issue with free trial offers, however, I have received numerous emails through this website from people who have tried similar free trial offers, and when they attempt to cancel, no one picks up the phone on the other end. I’m not saying RezV Elite is the same as these other companies, but judging by the look of the website and the structure of the offer, it’s just so similar I would expect it’s run by the same group or company.

If you followed the previous link, you will see that there’s no shortage of these types of scams out there. In fact, they pop up so quickly I simply can’t keep up. I’ve received complaints about Dr. Acai Skin Care where the trial never even showed up, but the credit card was billed. I’ve received complaints about Acai Alive, Vital Acai…the list goes on. The problem is a lot of people are earning an income from promoting these types of products. Feel free to peruse this article about how affiliate marketers are benefiting from promoting these scams.

All in all, be careful, read the fine print, and the old cliche lives on – if it sounds to good to be true, it probably is.

    I’d like to confirm that Rez V Elite is a complete scam. I have tried to cancel my order but, sure enough, no one answers the phone nor do they respond to my email. I can’t get a cancellation number to send to my credit card company so the charges continue. even if i cancel card, the charges will be attached to the new one. Nothing is ‘free’ online. They are all scams.

    I called 1-902-595-2682 and was told that I had been cancelled Aug 14. They said that their email address was vrzvitalsupport@gmail.com and I sent a cancellation notice to that address.
    Previously I had sent cancellation notices to other addresses that Visa said were likely not their true home address. Hope this is effective. Please post other approaches. Visa indicated that they would work to stop the ongoing billing.
