New Brunswick, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/03/2013 -- Consumers are being advised by HealthFoodPost.com to be very cautious about free green coffee offers and to probably avoid them altogether. The old saying goes if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. And, that is certainly true when it come to free offers for nutritional supplements advertised online, on radio, in magazines and on cable television. The latest cautionary note is about pure green coffee bean extract supplements which are a popular weight loss aid. Detailed information about so-called free offers and how they work can be found here http://healthfoodpost.com/green-coffee-extract/free-green-coffee-scams/
First some background is in order. Nutritional supplements made from green, or raw, coffee beans are an extremely popular natural weight loss aid. Green coffee supplements became popular after a recent research study demonstrated that supplements from green coffee produced impressive weight loss results. The researcher who headed the study, Dr. Joe Vinson, hypothesized that the antioxidant chlorogenic acid in raw coffee beans helps with weight loss because of its effect on blood sugar levels in humans. Dr. Vinson is a chemist at the University of Scranton in Scranton, PA. The study participants lost an average of over 17 pounds in 22 weeks by taking green coffee extract supplements. The participants did not alter their diets or exercise patterns. Dr. Vinson stated there were no negative green coffee extract side effects results from the trial. After the study results were made public and after a subsequent endorsement by a popular TV personality and doctor, demand for green coffee supplements for weight loss became strong.
Recently, offers for free bottles of green coffee or free green coffee trials began appearing everywhere on local radio stations, cable TV and, of course, online. These questionable free offers are reminiscent of the notorious free acai berry offers just a few years ago. There is an entire page on HealthFoodPost.com detailing the problems associated with these so-called free offers. In sum the way it works is that consumers are required to submit credit card or debit card information to pay for shipping for their free bottle. But, hidden in the fine print is the hard-to-find disclosure that the consumer is then enrolled in an automatic monthly shipment plan for extremely expensive subsequent bottles. And to add insult to injury, often these monthly shipments are extremely difficult to cancel, often resulting in the consumer having to cancel their credit card or debit card in order to get the unwanted shipments to stop. Charles Furmley, spokesperson for HealthFoodPost.com says… “Eventually these dubious operations are shut down, but in the interim thousands of people get scammed.” He adds “Consumers can avoid these traps by reading everything on websites making free bottle offers and specifically looking for sections titled Terms and Conditions.”
Furmley also said HealthFoodPost.com does not offer free bottles or free trials and never automatically ships products. He adds that customers only get shipments when they specifically place an order, so there are never any unpleasant surprises or unexpected shipments. Also, they do not accept advertising from any company making such offers. HealthFoodPost.com recommends a product called Perfect Green Coffee which is made in the USA from ingredients lab-tested for purity from a certified testing lab. All Perfect brand products including Perfect Green Coffee come with a customer satisfaction 100% money back guarantee so consumers can shop with risk-free confidence.
