Beware of any personal testimonials mentioning VitaCost. They are an advertisement for VitaCost's new on-line site ( launched Jan. 2010) A previous catalogue company, Natures Wealth, with name change to VitaCost in 2000. Irreputable, Unethical and Unauthorized credit card charges. One example of consumer complaints against VitaCost: VitaCost I placed an order with an online company called VitaCost. After I placed the order I was asked to complete a customer satisfaction survey. At the end of the survey I was asked if I wanted to be notified of special discounts. I clicked the yes box. Little did I know that by clicking yes I was subscribing to an online subscription to a program called Shopping Essentils. I only found out about this when a charge for $14.95 appeared on my credit card bill. There was no mention of a $14.95 charge or of an organization called Shopping Essentials on the VitaCost sight. I don't know what kind of a kick-back VitaCost is recieving, but it was very upsetting to know that they had virtually sold my credit card number to another organization. I called Shopping Essentials and they said they would give me a credit and cancel my subscription. I will give you an update in a few days to let you know if they followed through. I also called VitaCost. They admitted to having a relationship with Shopping Essentials and basically said the it was my fault for clicking yes to the question in the survey, that by doing so I was agreeing to the terms and contditions of the transaction. This is so unethical. I will not do business with VitaCost again.
