Omega Xl Pills

Omega XL advertised anti-inflamatory pills for sale.

I did not purchase any but they still charged my bank account %19.95.

I only gave them my name and address no other info?! How'd they get the

other info?

How can I get the charge taken off and stop any more such charges?

The product involved is Omega XL anti-inflamatory pills. They are being

sold by a christian ministry organization on TV Channel HLN arround midnight or on late night TV.

I cant remember the name of the man or the lady on the program I'm truly

sorry! Could you please try to help me??????

They had a lady and a gentleman also on the program as guests.


I am glad I read the reviews.


I cant believe the comments that I've been reading why do you people continue to allow these people to go into your checking account? CLOSE THE DANG ACCOUNT geesh if that's the only thing you can do to stop them, then do it and open another account.

Just let your bank know why you're doing it. Plain and Simple


I was considering ordering this Product but with all the negative comments, I think I will pass. I have had those same experience with company's and that tells me all I need to know.

I know that the People on the other end of the phone are there to sell sell sell and keep you ordering but when the Company has a hard time refunding your money or canceling your order then that's a BUYER BEWARE enough for me.

Thank you to those of you that posted the comments to inform the general public.


Reducing or eliminating sugar products will control or eliminate pain in many parts of the body, especially jount/arthritis pain. Also, eat more raw/fresh fruit and vegetables and drink alkaline water. Amazing how dietary adjustments will turn disease into wellness.


Your first clue to this being a scam was: They are being sold by a christian ministry organization


Easy solution: Get a prepaid CC with a limit, to be used for these types of "free trials." Then thay CAN"T hurt you financially, even if it's your fault.


I tried the product and....had horrible headaches. I cancelled, returned the product and was told my refund would take 30 to 60 days????

Such a (what else than a rip-off) bunch of baloney. I accused them of possibly using my money and other customers also. I was then told (manager) that I would receive my refund in 3-5 days. That didn't happen.

I turned it over to my bank.

Good luck to you in resolving your issue with them. By the way, the price is now 59.90 including shipping.


I think it is sad that you are all so negative about this.

If you had spoken to them with some decency you may of had a n answer to your question,

LOt;s of things in America, have not followed the guide lines yet, stillhave been put on the shelves...


Omega xl is a scam. I called their 1-800 number to ask the exact ingredients, specifically what is the exact amount of the touted "PCSO-524." Read closely. The back of the bottle says 

"Omega Fatty Acids containing PCSO-524

(green lipped mussel oil extract)"

A highly touted exotic miracle ingredient with no FDA evaluation is a dead giveaway of nutrition supplement scams. A well conceived scam will creatively hide the lack of true ingredients on the label; omega xl doesnt even go that far. It specifically says that each 300 mg serving "contains" PCSO-524. 

When I asked their customer service exactly how many mg of PCSO-524 is contained within a 300 mg serving, they first said "Im not sure." She placed me on hold for two minutes to find out. She came back to the phone and said 

"we dont have any literature or product info that says exactly how many milligrams of PCSO-524 are in a 300 mg serving, but we believe its the full 300 mg."

I reminded her that listed on the ingredients is olive oil which is a source of omega fatty acids. I told her with all due respect: youre unable to tell me exactly how much active ingredient is contained in each serving, I think you guys are putting trace amounts of actual active ingredient into an olive oil pill. 

She assured me that was not the case and said its definitely all active ingredient and the olive oil was in trace amounts and for easier swallowing.

I finally got her by bringing up marketing 101. I reminded her that her product has at least 100,000 dollars of marketing behind it. She agreed that they are well-marketed.  Marketing 101: communicate bankable selling points.  

There is no statement on the label, website, box, or a sales packet on the desk of their 1-800 operators that says "Pure PCSO-524." 

If each capsule were pure PCSO-524, that would be by far the most important selling point. She was speechless, and she knew she was caught BS'ing me.

Don't buy it, and please quietly  inform your unassuming friends and family who approach you with this scam so they can avoid further embarrassment.


The Omega XL website does not reveal anything about the actual ingredients or research sources - the FAQ section is a joke. There is only one patented prescription Omega 3 that doctors prescribe for heart patients - and most of those heart patients could do without it if they were willing to change their diets, learn to heal relationships and manage anger, sorrow & other stressors, and exercise 5 days a week for an hour.

Omega XL might have a patent but they do not give the patent number on the site. Looks "fishy" to me. You can easily get plenty of Essential Fatty Acids from your diet if you give up junk and processed foods, start eating nuts, vegetables, and certain fishes including sardines and anchovies. Omega XL is making "too good to be true" promises and the people on the infomercial are all very large and obviously don't eat well or exercise.

They may claim joint pain and stiffness limits their ability to exercise but the fact is they could go to the local YMCA and take water aerobics for people just like them. I personally know a 93 yo woman with terrible RA who does deep water aerobics 3xweek and stretching for older people in the water 2xweek. Look up the studies on how the "placebo effect" works - that is what is happening w/the starry eyed people you meet who claim they have found the "magic bullet" for health. THERE ARE NO MAGIC BULLETS EXCEPT FOR A VERY CLEAN CAREFULLY PLANNED DIET, PORTION CONTROL AT EVERY MEAL, AND VIGOROUS EXERCISE -PERIOD.

Although many of the infomercial and multi level marketing pills and juices actually HAVE certain essential oils and anti oxidants or whatever, they are outrageously expensive and cannot deliver what they promise any better than a good diet can. At the drugstore get a bottle of fish oil on a buy one get one free and MAKE SURE it breaks down the exact amount of EPA and DHA on the back of the bottle - if it does not, don't get it, just because the capsule is 1200 mg does not mean it is 1200mg of fatty acids. Also - DO NOT EVER ever ever ever - give your bank check card number to anyone over the phone for any reason. It is the same as writing a blank check made out to "Cash" and leaving it on a busy street corner.

If you are too young or do not have good enough credit for a credit card then you have no business buying anything by phone or online. This includes airline tickets, car rentals, hotel reservations etc because they will hold a deposit against damages and can cause you to bounce a dozen checks x $30 per bounced check. Credit cards have protections if a company charges it without your permission. The check card attached to your bank account has no such protection.

You can be wiped out and your friendly local banker cannot help you. Just because your bank check card says "Visa" or "MC" on it, it is simply not a credit card. If you give it out to a company like Omega XL or any other infomercial, magazine, email etc, etc, you will regret it. Be smart.

Most infomercials over-promise and under-deliver - so do emails form companies you never heard of. They make things sound special and different which actually can be bought at the drugstore or made at home. No matter who it is you are talking to, emailing, web site ordering, etc do not give your account number, birth date, SS# etc to any one for any reason unless you know for absolute certainty who it is and why they want the info. Some people fall for it when an "official" sounding person calls them to "confirm" their address and SS#/credit card# by giving the wrong # and will actually say "No, the correct number is....." to a perfect stranger!

I can't tell you how many people, 18 yo to 88 yo on limited incomes have ended up financially ruined because they used their bank check card as if it were a credit card or gave out personal info to a scammer on the phone or email. If you have limited funds, give yourself a weekly allowance from the ATM. Limited income and Low income people (and even some higher income people) who use the bank check card to buy a $4 coffee and muffin at the convenience store every day eventually lose track and end up overdrawn and end up paying $40 for each $4 coffee after the overdraft charges. Again, the only magic bullet for health is good genes to start with coupled with self control, daily physical activity, and a smart clean diet.

Good luck! :)


It was probably one of the firs things they asked for...your name, address and credit card #, you probably did not remember after they pissed you off for not answering pertinent ques.s that you had after they affoered you a free trial or a newsletter or some such baloney deal that was $19.95. The usual boiler room scam method.

They do it the world over. Look out for all foreign nations, Nevada, Utah, Florida and lately California


Call the attorney generals office in the state in which you reside if you were charged for a product that you did not willfully order through verbal agreement or otherwise. Also call the postmaster general in your state due to the fact that that by whatever means they were able to access any of your funds(checking,credit or debit card;etc.

.),is mail fraud and WILL be investigated and prosecuted by one or both of the govt. agencies mentioned above. A word to the wise; always have a digital recorder RECORDING the conversation from beginning to end when speaking to a company rep.(not against the law to do so...)for,like they say, "quality assurrance". That may sound cynical, but MANY if not a majority of these "telebrands" are scamming and making untold millions by this same method of accessing info through hit or miss caller ID that appears when you call them.


Be diligently persistant and help make a difference for the next consumer who could quite possibly get scammed. Good luck!


I am so glad I read these reviews before I even called!!!! Was considering trying, but now I will just go to my Natural Pantry.



will they send u an address so u can pay with a money order


There is no way they got you info. I think you gave them the info and changed your mind.


Yes, if you say that is what happened I can only tAke your word for it. To have the charge dropped call your credit card company and ask to dispute the charges. They will help you from there..


Not possible for that to happen. Check your statement again.
