We decided to do some surfing around and answer the question, “Is Provillus A Scam?”
While reading all these blogs, forums and articles and trying to get to the bottom of whether Provillus works or not, we came upon many blogs and forums that implied that Provillus was a scam.
It’s amazing what people will post on a forum! We decided to investigate the company, and these scam claims to try and get a fair and balanced review of these charges.
So, Is Provillus A Scam?
Here’s what we found. It seems that Provillus works well for some people (both male and female), and is not so effective for others. But the amazing thing is that the people screaming “SCAM” aren’t really talking about the product.
Here’s why some people are posting the Provillus is a SCAM
As a marketing promotion these type of products are occasionally sold as “risk free trials”. The offer usually goes something like this. You can try the product for free for 5-10 days (just pay a small s/h fee). If you decide to keep the product you will be billed at the end of the month, and will receive a monthly supply of product from then on, until you cancel. If you don’t cancel in 10 days, there are no refunds.
This is what is known as continuity program, or “risk free trial” marketing.
Provillus doesn’t always use this approach, but has used it successfully over the years. The people crying “scam” weren’t screaming about the product, they were upset that their “free trial” wasn’t actually free. (if they had cancelled, it would have been!)
I don’t have a lot of sympathy for people who don’t read the fine print and actually believe that you get anything in this world for free.
The deal is simple for anyone who reads the details. Try the product, if you don’t like it, cancel. If you don’t cancel, they’ll send you more and charge your credit card.
Most of the forums posts and blogs we found that scream “Provillus is a scam” are from people who didn’t read the details, got charged for their product, tried to get a refund and couldn’t.
The policy of “risk free trials” is that these offers mean there is no refund. You can cancel within a certain period, but if you don’t, you get charged. And, the cancellation policy is that you can cancel at any time, but you can’t return opened product.
(Personally I wouldn’t want to order from any company that would take back opened product and resell it, would you?)
So, C’mon, Is Provillus A Scam?
It seems that the product works for some, and not for others. (And I think the only way to find out if it works for you is to try it).
If you do decide to try it, and they are offering a “risk free trial”, PLEASE read the details so you understand their offer. If you do, I don’t think you’ll be upset. At this time they don’t have any open Better Business Bureau disputes. (of course, that can change). They have been producing and selling Provillus online since 2002 so that is another fact that would disprove they are a scam. Most scams don’t last for years and years.
UPDATE: Sometimes they offer a risk free trial, sometimes it’s get a few extra bottles with a larger order. They seem to change their offers from time to time. Click Here to see what their current offer is.
Whether it works for you (or us) is still open to debate. But, is Provillus A Scam?, not as long as you read the details of their offer!
