Beware of "Natural Garcinia Cambogia" Weight Loss Pill Scams

Online users do not visit or purchase from websites that claim to sell "Natural Garcinia Cambogia," a so-called weight loss pills created by so-called Anna and Samantha Williams from Shark Tank or Dragons' Den. This is because the websites are scams created by online scammers and the so-called Anna and Samantha Williams featured on the fake websites are actually Shelly Hyde and Kara Haught, who have nothing to with the product. Shark Tank or Dragons' Den is a reality television format program featuring entrepreneurs pitching their business ideas in order to secure investment finance from a panel of venture capitalists.

The Facebook comments on the websites are fakes. The fake comments have been placed on the website to convince potential victims into purchasing the fake weight loss product. And, do not be fooled by the claims that the product was seen by The New York Times, TODAY, StyleWatch and Redbook, this is not true. It is just another trick to convince potential victims into falling for the scam. The scammers may also claim the product is loved by celebrities, but again, this is a lie used to convince potential victims into purchasing the fake product.

Online users, remember, using your credit card on fraudulent websites will allow online scammers to continuously charge it without your consent. Therefore, online users who have been tricked by the scam are asked to contact their banks and have the transactions canceled and their money refunded. They may need to have the bank block further fraudulent transactions or cancel the current credit card and get a new one.

    I have been scammed for $500 I said I only wanted the two week trial, then if I was satisfied I would order more....the first pkg arrived and I had been sick so never opened it...then another pkg arrived and my visa bill was charged $520.00..so I am wondering if the stuff I got in the mail is safe to take?

    Unable to get through on the phone # listed on the receipt. I cancelled the order before submitting it and they still sent me the product!

    Beware you only have 14 days from the date you order to cancel your automatic refill - which is $85 - I did not receive the order for a week and did not even have time for the two week trial period before they charged me full price - they stated that it is on the page where you put in your address and info - I feel this is in fair to say it is a trial and then charge you before the trial period is over.

      I searched for this disclaimer. There was nothing in the package, or on the website where I ordered to get my "Get free, pay only shipping and handling". Also, they have like a million names, phone numbers, and websites.

    I have just fallen prey to these scammers taking money our of my bank account without permission....and receiving no good either. Even though I did not want any more. I received a trail which I paid for then more payments started coming out. Total scam. The bank are dealing with it now...the fraud department. They said they had dealt with a lot of other cases.

    I was researching the "Miracle" weight loss pill that is all over FB that always mentions Trevor Hildbrand, Stanford University, & Shark Tank. While doing some research many of the searches made me wonder about it's validity, but this article came up that made me super suspicious and was just to easy to pick at:

    Trevor Hiltbrand’s, Stanford University Student, Weight ...
    https://fashionandotherthings.com/trevor-hiltbrands-stanford...
    Trevor Hiltbrand, a Stanford University graduate, recently made headlines when he landed the biggest deal in Shark Tank history. The mother of three had spent years developing an all-natural weight loss pill that has the ability to completely...

    First thing was in the first sentence, it says "he" and the next sentence it says "the mother of three", more than likely, "he" is not going to be a "mother of three".

    Next, the product that Trevor presented to Shark Tank was a supplement to help improve memory, not weight loss.

    Lastly, (there is probably more to pick at, but I had spent all the time I was going to on this) many of the fake ads say how ALL the sharks jumped on his product when actually only one, Lori, offered him any kind of deal and it was not the biggest deal in Shark Tank history.

    Obviously, I wish there was a miracle weight lose pill too, or else I wouldn't have been sucked into checking out the validity of this product in hopes that I too could lose a 100lbs in 48hrs (ok, maybe a slight exaggeration). If it sounds to good to be true it probably is.

    I noticed ads with the same pictures and words with different product names all claiming to be on Shark Tank or Doctor Oz. Some of the names I have seen are Rapid Tone, Luna Trim, Luxury Garcinia, and Garcinia Cambodia. Clearly a scam with so many newly rebranded names.

    My mom saw the show and wanted to try it. I had not read reviews until now that it was a scam. A month later, I was charged $90. I looked over my order, and there was nothing indicating I would be billed later for anything. When I called to cancel any future transactions, they said I wasn't billed for anything new - I was just billed for the product I received. So - advertising of free trial is absolutely false.

      I had the same problem with True Slim my card showed that I was charged $89.84 for the "15 day trial of Garcina Cambogia and $89.82 for the Detox in which the box was already checked like I had no choice but to pay the shipping and handling fee on this short order form that had no mention of a "15 day trial"and you will have to pay for the "free sample" or free trial of these products just for shipping and handling, which was $4.95 for the GC and $5.95 for the Detox which was charged on my card @ $10.90 total.

      I thought that was it. So I call fraudulent advertising. I contacted customer service and she knocked off $40.00 for each product out of a total of $179.66 not including shipping and handling and that gave them $99.66 for nothing because I do not think these pills are worth anything. I will contact the attorney general on this transaction.

    I have been caught by this scam. the tablets made me nauseous after 2 days and I sought to send back the rest. no return address. phone number given a hoax. No re-dress.

    I contacted my card company. they refused to pursue the matter and say I have to pay the charge on my statement.£183.65.

    The only thing they will do is stop further payments. I understood that credit card companies would back up the customer in the case of fraud but this is not happening.

    Why do we have to submit to this kind of fraud? Surely we should be protected. The site these fraudsters used came up on yahoo.

    Found the same "ad" for multiple products (at least 4, but there's probably more)...

    Rapid Tone and Thermo Burn, both by a would-be Trevor Hiltbrand - advertising both products as having been supported by all members of Shark Tank (to the tune of $2.5mil) and rebranded/rebottled. Both sites even use the exact same language and use the exact same before & after models with the exact same exclamatory statements.

    Garcinia Plus and CLA Safflower Oil, both by would-be sisters Anna & Samantha Williams - again, both products having been supported by all members of Shark Tank (only to the tune of $1.3mil, this time) and rebranded/remodeled. The language is no longer identical to the Rapid Tone and Thermo Burn sites and use different before & after models, however, thought the language is slightly different, the same claims stand...

    Sold out in 5 days; "It's the original formula, all we've done is change the name and packaging"; First to receive a standing ovation from the audience and all five members of the panel; etc.

    What I find to be hysterical, though, is the before & after photos... take a close look. For each of these products being so miraculous that they take off SO much weight in SO little time, look closely at the hair growth in the "after" photos in comparison to the "before" photos. So these products also make hair grow 6-12" in about a month? Wonder why they're not trying to capture THAT audience as well!

    :-)

    Peace

    It sounded too good to be true and then I saw a different product with same backstory, verbiage, and reviews. Several sites were not accessible. I also notice the perpetuation of bad grammar and word usage.

    They have setup pages of fake sites stating the validity of the product but one thing they all had in common was very bad English. I also noticed that all the reviews were current dates.

    I finally looked up shark tank products and neither weight loss item was there. Then I see this site which confirmed my fraud suspicions.

    Thanks!

    Sent for the so called free sample of the Bioslim slimming product. Two sets of postage were taken. No slimming product was received .... But a pack of what appears to be a laxative arrived. Repeated requests for the slimming product failed to produce it. After reading advice on the internet l cancelled my bank account to block any further loss.

    I had intended to conduct a scientific test but as I am unable to get a sample I assume it would be a failure.
    Then finding out that it is sold under various names and that the sisters who claimed to have set up the business were unconnected with Bioslim and their names. Were fake. There are even fake magazines recommending this product!

    The best advice I can give is that you should not give anyone access to your credit card or bank account to pay for postage for any "free" sample.

    Not only free pills but also gave cream is being used in the same scam system.
    What are they going to try to sell next? And what other criminals are going to offer you phony free samples?

    Well, being a fan of Shark Tank,Melissa McCarthy and a person always looking for that ‘miracle weight loss aide’ I fell for the FaceBook ad. I can say I did notice a curb in my appetite, but NO weight loss occurred during the past month.

    Now for the bad news...I just discovered two debits to my checking account totaling $150! I am livid! DO NOT FALL FOR THIS SCAM LIKE THIS CHUBBY OLD LADY DID!
