Read the fine print.

4 Comments

How often have you checked that little box next to the statement ‘I agree to the Terms and Conditions’ without ever reading over the terms you were agreeing to? I know I’m guilty. But, you can save yourself a ton of trouble by simply spending a few minutes reading over the fine print of a sales page. I know the countdown timer says there is only 14 seconds left before the offer runs out FOREVER, but ignore it for now.

Is AcaiForceMax a scam?

I don’t know and I have no intention of finding out. Instead, I want to take a look at their sales page and their fine print.

The sales pitch behind AcaiForceMax claims that the little Acai berries will help you lose weight, tone muscles, burn fat, and increase your energy levels. The page is littered with testimonials and pictures of these jacked dudes lifting weights and looking good while trying to maintain nonchalant and carefree poses.

If I was trying to lose weight, the sales pitch has me sold. I get to lose weight, build muscle, and have girls throw themselves at me from every possible angle the minute I step out in public. What more could you want?

However, I’m going to keep reading after I reach the bottom of the sales pitch. I’m going to go where few have gone before and I’m actually going to read the fine print. It starts off with…

* These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease. Please consult your physician before beginning any program. If there is a change in your medical condition, please notify your counselor immediately.

Hmm, that’s kind of disappointing. But just because the FDA hasn’t evaluated their claims doesn’t mean it won’t work, right?

1 Results not typical for any and all claims.

Crap. So all that stuff you said above probably won’t happen? But the testimonials looked so promising!

** All celebrity images were found on and obtained from public websites and are believed to be in public domain.
***Picture does not contain the likeness of the customer that submitted the testimonial.

Not even the testimonials were real! Well at least I can trust Fitness magazine, CBS, ABC, and Wall Street Journal for looking into AcaiForceMax.

+ Fitness Magazine, CBS News, ABC, and Wall Street Journal are registered trademarks of their respective owners.
2 Media elements deployed are those of paid actors.

IS ANYTHING YOU SAY REAL? You say as seen on ABC, but only because you paid ABC to advertise! I’m skeptical as hell at this point, but hey, it’s a free trial. What could go wrong about free?

If you do not cancel your Trial Membership during the applicable fourteen (14) day period as set forth in Section 7 herein below, your Active Credit Card will be charged the monthly Membership fee of Eighty-Seven Dollars and Sixty-Two Cents ($87.62) (“Monthly Fee”)

I. Give. Up.

Now do you see why we urge you all to read the terms and conditions? In about 2 minutes I found out that AcaiForceMax doesn’t work, the testimonials do not feature real people, and the free trial will cost me $87.62 every 30 days.

And that’s why I now take the time to read the terms and conditions to which I am agreeing to. You should too.

There's only ONE program I really recommend. It helped me turn my 'hobby' into a $10,000+ per month money making machine. Click here for the exact formula I followed.

  1. Another thing they tell you in that fine print – you have to return the unused portion of the product before the trial period is up (or within x number of days of cancellation) or they will charge you the full amount for the product. I got burned that way doing PPD. I cancelled via e-mail and they confirmed my cancellation but didn’t mention the product needed to be returned within x days. It was in the T&C fine print but I missed it.

    The affiliate program through Wealthy Affiliate is one small aspect of the site and by no means the main feature. They teach affiliate marketing.

    Yes, we receive commissions for referring people to Wealthy Affiliate.

  3. Steve,

    Thanks for the post on Read The Fine Print. I did just that on before signing up for “Wealthy Affiliate” and this is what I found:

    “Upon being provided with a COMPANY Membership YOU will be signed up with the WealthyAffiliate.com Affiliate Program. All Affiliate Commissions accumulated by YOU while promoting the WealthyAffiliate.com Program…”

    I see that you them listed as a recommendation at the bottom of the page. Is this how someone makes money using them, by selling their product? Do they teach people how to sell their product or is there something else of substance they teach? Also, do you make a commission every time someone signs up for their service from your site?

    Thanks.

  4. Sites like the one mentioned above will always find a few suckers. The weight loss industry is such a huge money making machine. It’s hard not to get sucked in by the websites, and fitness magazines. I have personally been on my own weight loss journey for the past year and a half and there have been times which I have almost been duped by glossy ads “especially the muscle magazines.” I know from all the hours I have spent in the gym and changed eating habits that there isn’t a magic pill that helps you lose weight, yet I am still fascinated by a product that appears to accelerate the weight loss process. I have to admit, I have bought products that were pure crap, nothing on the scale mentioned above, but nonetheless, fools good. As always, a good article for the masses.
