Feeling somewhat relieved, that I was not the only fool to be scammed by this company! I do feel a little guilty that I am feeling pleased at not being the only idiot on the internet and that many 100’s of other people have also fallen for this scam!
The feeling of dread passes over me every time I log on to my online banking. Just when I think I have seen the last unauthorised transactions on my account and start to believe that maybe this time it will be ok! There would be yet another! A sharp intake of breath and ‘OMG’ screeching through my head along with another string of choice words that permeate the air blue, seems to be the norm these days!
As one of the latest scammed consumers and constantly being reminded by my not so sympathetic, although, ‘apparently’ far more intelligent and clued up members of my family ‘only idiots fall for these scams!’ I have watched in dread, my not very substantial bank balance dwindle away to pennies! My head filled with my own desperate voice of endless recants getting ever more and more aggressive. ‘Iinnocent transaction, taken advantage, It’s so unfair! Oh no, not again! I can’t believe it! Utterly ridiculous! Scandalous!! Outrageous!! OMG!!!
OMG! DAMN IT! profanity, profanity, profanity!
The products were returned to the supplier as instructed by my bank using recorded delivery and for a further £3.00, next day delivery also. To my utter astonishment a day after they should have received the package, there it was back at my house in the hands of our friendly postman, requesting my signature! The person from the post office had ticked the box to say ‘Not There, Gone Away!
“So where does that leave me now?” I wonder!
My unsympathetic family, are unresponsive, apart from the odd tut or muttering of, ‘serves you right or it’s your own fault’, whilst continuing about their day totally unconcerned! So rather than share my ranting’s or should I say, my negative feelings (much more polite). ” Well, No, I don’t think so!” The truth is that my feelings, ranting’s or ‘negative’ thoughts are anything but polite they are in fact downright abusive! I have spent hours, using a diverse selection of very colourful words in an effort to create the most insulting statement of all time! So this whole ridiculous SCAM has not only, robbed my bank balance, caused me so much hassle and stress, used up valuable time from a not so young women, but it has also robbed me of my sanity! I am gorging and drowning in a glossary of derision trying to satisfy an insatiable desire to find the right words that unmasks their disgraceful ethics and shameful conduct, dishonour and stigmatise their extremely profitable venture and make sure that they gain the notoriety they so deserve! I want to warn and protect people and cause them a ruination!
OH AND…needless to say…
to make me feel a whole lot better!!
I think it’s beginning to work already!
Ketone Slim XT and Prima Cleanse Diet – An Incredible weight loss formula, completely natural and 100% pure. Burn real fat in 30 days or less!
Get the Whole Weight Loss Formula for a Special Price TODAY! Only £3.95 per Bottle!
I have to say this promotion really got me thinking that for £3.95 a bottle it would be daft not to try it. After all if it didn’t work, it was hardly going to break the bank or so I thought!
The order arrived some time later, not in a desperate rush, I decided it was perhaps best not to start the formula straight away, as a teacher, stuck in a classroom for most of my time, I couldn’t afford any upset tummy or other side effects that would be impossible to manage. So I decided to wait for a convenient time when I knew I had no work or other important commitments!
I started the course on a weekend taking the recommended 1 table per day for each supplement. Apart from a little reflux and slight taste of the tablets, there appeared to be no problems. So just a matter of getting them into my system, I thought and ‘hey presto!’ As the advert claimed, I would watch the weight drop off!
I took my second lot of tablets on the Sunday, again without any problems other than the odd burp, tasting of the tablet! I couldn’t wait to see if it would work on my bloated tummy, which was really my one and only weight problem.
During Sunday evening I felt a little off sorts, bit sickly and a little uncomfortable, nothing too dramatic! I went to bed hoping I wasn’t coming down with anything and never gave a thought to the ketone tablets I had taken. At some point during the night I was woken with the most awful tummy ache and had to run to the bathroom, as though I was Usain Bolt in the Olympics! Fortunately I made it! Unfortunately, I spent the rest of the night sat there! The dreadful diarrhoea was unrelenting! Without being too descriptive, I lost a lot of fluid! And had an extremely sore bottom! Bleeding in fact! I was still in the bathroom around the time I needed to leave for work, if I was to make it in time for the first bell. There and then I realised this was the ketone and decided no way was I taking any more!
Although, I was in quite a bit of pain and could hardly walk straight, after exiting the bathroom, I did actually make it to work, almost on time! I was sort of OK for the rest of the day, apart from the odd gurgling and tummy ache. I did not take any more of the tablets and soon after I was back to normal. Normal that is until I saw my online banking account!
Health boutique £93 card payment…what the eck! I thought, what’s that? who are they? I didn’t buy this, what ever it is? I’ve not got a clue, I would never spend that amount without knowing what it was for.
Turns out that the so called trial offer of ketone slim and prima cleanse came with the added inclusion of a monthly subscription! The minute you make the order you agree to their terms! Gutted! to say the least, the tablets had made me ill and in no way was I going to take any more of them! Then I find out that instead of the £3.95 each, trial price that I thought I had signed for, I was in fact being scammed! I had inadvertently agreed to pay stupid money for the ongoing delivery of the formula!
Incidentally, this was two weeks after the initial delivery of the formula and I have not received any further deliveries! After contacting my bank and finding out that because it was a debit card purchase and I had agreed to the terms they were unable to do anything about it other than cancel the payments. I was dismayed to find out that two weeks later another £89 was taken from my account in the name of ‘fit boutique’ this time! And still no further deliveries, as if I wanted them anyway! I still had two almost full bottles of the stuff left, untaken!
I feel extremely annoyed that I have allowed myself to be taken for a fool and for not scrolling down the page to see the terms and agreement of the trial offer!
My bank informed me that these type of offers are now prolific and that people were being scammed left right and centre, thinking that they are paying merely for negligible delivery charges or an extremely reduced price, only to find out that in fact they have agreed to pay ridiculous amounts of monthly payments, that never in a month of Sunday’s would they have agreed to had they known!
I am absolutely disgusted by the unethical way in which these companies are operating and that innocent people who cannot afford and would never have agreed to such terms are being taken advantage of!
This has been a very shocking realisation of the corrupt commercial industry prevalent today! I am now extremely reluctant to purchase anything online for fear of missing the small print. Once a company has your card details they can use them at their will! Beware, you innocent, naïve consumers! All is NOT what it seems!
WARNING – DON’T BE DUPED! IF IT SEEMS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS!
