Well, they are still getting away with it, only now it is on television. I ordered the free starter kit, which ended up being a "free trial", which ended up costing me quite a bit of money. The add noted a u-tube of the doctors on television that give advise and that pointed to this site, so I thought it was legit. Anyway, I bought into it. Then while waiting for it to come in, I did a google search and became suspicious, so went back and read the fine print. I called them and after an hour of arguing they relented saying I would only have to pay 1/2 of the $119.00 and they would remove me from the monthly "club" which cost additional $54.00. I ordered the blu and could not be happier.
Except this morning I have an email saying that my monthly shipment has been mailed out from the company that supposedly said they had removed me. ugh.

I am glad i found a local shop, with great people, willing to teach us all about e-cigg's.. nothing in life is ever free, so one of these scam offers would not have worked on me .. but thanks for the information that they are out there ..

I am a victim of an alleged free trial offer
It is worse than what was stated here - I ordered the allegedly free trial and within 3 weeks my credit card was charged 3 times - and I never received any product at all. Now the company, which I would love to name but am not allowed to, is refusing to credit back the initial shipping charge of $4.95 even though they acknowledge and admit that they never shipped the product out to me! I am an attorney and am looking at suing this company for fraud. If anyone else has had this experience, please post. I am not sure what the rules are for giving out personal information but if there is enough response, I may set up a website for this.

I also bought a $5 starter kit after reading an online review that was by "the doctors" (or something like that) from the TV show of 4 doctors who usually debate popular health trends, So I figured it was legit... wrong

Luckily ive only been charged the $5, and 2 different customer support people have assured me that I will not be charged for anything, and I can keep the starter kit. Ive sent an email also asking, and making sure, especially since the calls are supposedly recorded.
If I get charged further, Ill sent you a PM sbsimpson, and you can add it to your case against them.

My friend ordered one of these free trials and sure enough they were charging her over a hundred dollars for a kit that was worth maybe $30. I wish I would have been more informed before she ordered because at the time I thought it was a great idea.

I learned a long time ago that you never get anything for free.

Thanks for all the info. My step father almost fell for the free trail, luckily I looked into it before and stopped him from getting caught up in a complete scam.
