I reading the posts about Direct Buy, and I wanted to remind people to be careful of ANY club or autoship service.

To clarify, Direct Buy is a club service where you pay a certain amount to gain access to their services. Autoships are commonly seen with supplements (such as sexual health and diet pills)- you buy a trial for shipping and handling, and if the company does not hear from you in a certain time period they will start sending fresh supplies and charging you.

I worked for a company several years ago that sold products on autoship. The 'trial' sounds like a great idea, but good luck canceling- they make it difficult, if not impossible. And often by the time your trial sample arrives, you've already been charged for the first full shipment.

I urge great caution in ordering anything you see advertised on the television or radio. Not all companies are shady, but look for reviews online first and trust your instincts. If it sounds too good to be true, trust me that it is.
