Instaflex - Cannot complain

I ordered Instaflex because a friend cannot buy it where she lives. She heard about it, read a study and thought she should try it to ease her knee pain. I signed up for the trial, received the capsules, cancelled and never heard again lest one e-mail "Sorry to see you go...". My friend then found a store in Canada where she can get Instaflex cheaper and continued buying there instead through the subscription. At least there was no CC scam that I could identify. It is a whole different issue about the claim that it helps with all sorts of pain, but that can be discussed to death just like with all other remedies.

Have taken Osteo Bi-Flex for over 5 years. Decided to try Instaflex Advanced to see if it might work better. Instead of getting caught in the automatic re-orders, I bought the 14 pill bottle at Walgreens and dropped the Osteo. Tried a second 14 pill bottle hoping...

I've been using glucosamine sulfate since 1998 and it has helped immensely. Earlier this year I was diagnosed with the gout - glucosamine uses shellfish/fish in their blend - which I have to avoid.

Instaflex advanced doesn't use shellfish/fish so I tried it.

For the last 3 months I have felt slightly better in the knees, back and ankle (gout hit me hard here). So if you're body can handle shellfish/fish I would stay with the glucosamine.

Not as described/ advertised
When you order the free trial of "Instaflex Joint Support" for the processing fee of $4.99 you are also giving them permission to charge your credit card each month for a recurring supply of Instaflex. It's all in the fine print. It you look at the fine print on your...

Instaflex - Billed and shipped product without my requesting it

Same as many others these scammers began shipping and billing me without my consent. DO NOT give them a credit card number for the shipping charges on a "free" trial. They will use your number to bill you $75 EVERY MONTH. The trial product they sell didn't do anything foe me. This is a scam and the FTC should be looking into their business practices. I would not recommend to anyone to do business with this company as they are automatically billing people who thought they were just requesting a free trial sample - NOT signing their life away. Bad Business Bad Product.

08/02/2010 Unauthorized Charge DDL*INSTAFLEX 30DAY SP  $74.98

INSTAFLEX Misleading Charge me on 8/02/2010 Unauthorized Charge DDL*INSTAFLEX 30DAY SP $74.98 12 days after recieving their trial product by mail. I did not authorize them to charge nor did they advise of the same. People beware of this scam, the product is a placebo and has no benefit or is it a remedie for what it claims.

You were reading a complaint about Instaflex.

Filing a new complaint about

The Instaflex company took 74.98 from my account in January. Soon after I received the product I called the customer service no. and got a RMA no. to return the product . I took it to the post office and handed it to the postal worker and still did not receive the refund. They tell me they never received it. How did they get to me? I have called numerous times and they tell me to talk to a supervisor and put me on hold or promise to have someone contact me within 72 hrs. and I'm still waiting. Do not ever order from them ! It doesn't work anyway!!

I was also charged the 74.98 on my credit card without knowledge or authorization. I never never never authorize automatic debit to my bank account. Apparently after you receive a trial 14 day free supply you are fair game for future automatic charges.

I ordered the "free" sample and now they have sent me another bottle which I did not ask for and charged my credit card. I don't think the product has actually helped with my joint pain.I need my money back right now.

This is a big scam.
