I have purchased a couple bottles of force factor and had been pleased witht the product itself but the company I am not. I stopped buy the bottles back in September 2009 because I wanted to try something new. Since then the company has made a $74.98 dollar charge to my account everymonth including today December 3rd 2009. So three wrongfull charges, beware of this company!

Force Factor company.
Well the first time I perchased from the company everything went fine and got the bottles sent to me in South Korea were I was at the time and they came in 5 days. A few months later I made my second and last perchase from them and thats when they kept charging my account. They are a pretty big and fast growing company, but I am guessing there is a problem with their system, or with the people working there. The contact number on their website doesnt seem to work either, I have called it a few times and either get a busy tone or when it does go through it asks for a six digit access number.... Hmmm. Also there is no other way to contact them, no email address that I could find just that number. So I am going to black list them or attept to. Has any one else had problems with this company? Like I said the product works great, but the company... ya.. not so great it seems.Remember,the only difference between use and abuse is knowledge. Do yourself a favor, EDUCATE YOURSELF!

this is exactly like free credit report
they wont get in trouble they have lawyers and loopolls. filing with the fbi isnt gonna do a thing. what you need to do when you cant get your way with a shady company is screw whoever picks the phone up and ask strictly for a supervisor, and when talking to them keep your cool and then threaten to report them to the better buisiness bureau
do research first man, i cant beleive people still are that dumb and fall for this crap! u gotta b kiddin me

It's basically an over-hyped, over-packaged, over-priced NO Booster. Pure nonsense, but I guess people are falling for it.
I put in my height (5'10) and 400lb as my weight in their form. Guess what? I pre-qualified for a free trial--yipee!

All the hype and popularity around force factor led me to get the free trial. Well all i wanted was an honest review from a real user, but all i could find were bogus reviews from probably the company itself and people just trying to promote it, making it sound like its a supplement from heaven.
Well if you want a real review from a real user...myself. I give it in my signature below. I don't think I can post any links yet. Hope that helps!My Honest Review and Experience with Force Factor: http://force-factor-reviews.com/

File an IC3 complaint ASAP.
I had a similar problem, I filed an IC3 complaint and about 3 months later the FBI contacted me, lol. Since there was quite a few complaints they did an investigation and the owners of the fraudulent company were sent to prison for 12 years!

Like was said earlier, you can't file a complaint, there is small print you should read first that says to avoid charges you have to call and cancel. It's your own fault.
I honestly don't know how you can get suckered into buying this stuff in the first place, let alone want to trial it.*MusclePharm: Official Supplement of the UFC*

DaLad9008 -You could use some english grammar lessons as well.
"LIKE WAS SAID EARLIER,YOU CAN'T FILE A COMPLAINT, THERE IS SMALL PRINT YOU SHOULD READ FIRST THAT SAYS TO AVOID CHARGES YOU HAVE TO CALL AND CANCEL. IT'S YOUR OWN FAULT."
Now, in your one paragraph garble, run-on wording and assembly, you have managed to make, seven grammatical errors. Granted, that poor dude, for sure, needs some help. Cutting him down, like you did, only shows your obvious, superiority complex. I wonder who really is, the better man? Transfer a bit of that power, from your arms, to your brain. The world would benefit more than you know!

Before this gets out of hand and becomes political, I just want to say it's not a big deal to express one's self. Let's focus and address the issue at hand.
It looks like force factor is a scam and honestly, I get annoyed seeing the advertisements on all of the major sites. I'd never order, but I'm sure this helps those that are on the fence regarding this matter. Thanks for the heads up.

Credit card use is usually the scam
ALWAYS READ THE FINE PRINT. Any time you give your credit, or debit card number to ANY company, even if they say it's just to cover shipping costs you are giving them permission in the fine print to sign you up for a subscription to that product. About the only way out of it is to change your card number, or pay until the terms run out. Cancel the trial as soon as you can. Some times the free trial starts as soon as you order the product, then it may take a week of the free trial just to get the stuff. Always go to the company website to read the fine print before you order anything with your card.

Yah I ordered the free sample, but called to cancel just because I don't like to have any auto-draft/order out of any of my accounts. They tried to persuade me to stay with it and said I could push out my trial window to whatever date I wanted, and work with me on promotions to buy new bottles for $29.99 instead of the $70 if I canceled. Said F'it still and canceled.
