*Consumer Suggestion: You need to contact the following people and numbers:
The automated system offered me tons of offers on things such as magazines, and other crap, and asked me over and over did I want to continue receiving shipments of this product and be billed each month for it. (It takes like ten minutes to get thru all of the stupid offers before you can actually order). I continuosly pressed NO!! on the phone.
Well either they don't care if you say no, or they just send it to you anyway, because 30 days after I ordered I saw a new charge on my credit card statement for $40.90. I immediately called Lipozene and asked them why they charged me again. They said that they had shipped my second months worth of Lipozene, and that the total would come to approximately $70. The guy I spoke with told me that they would be charging me around $30 the following week.
I told him that I didn't ask for another shipment or to be charged again, and that I wanted the charge to be removed from my credit card. He told me that there was nothing he or I could do about the charges and that they would continue charging me each month!! He said that I could NOT send back the second order for a refund either! I asked to speak to a manager or supervisor so that maybe I could get something done about this, and of course there was not one available to speak with me. He told me that one would contact me within 48-72 hours.
I could see by this time that I wasn't going to get anywhere by speaking to Lipozene. I realized that they were nothing but scam artist, so I just hung up the phone. I mean think about it, what legitimate company doesn't let you cancel orders, mail back shipments for refunds or have a manager/supervisor availible to speak with?? Especially when you never told them to keep charging your card over and over!!
Then I did a little research on the internet. I couldn't find one good consumer review for Lipozene. Everything that I read was about them scamming people the same way that they scammed me.
Finally, I called my credit card company and told them about the fraudalent charges being made to my card. They helped me cancel the card so that they couldn't charge it anymore. But, then I had to sign and mail in an affidavit saying that the charges were unauthorized, and then had to wait two weeks to get my new card and number.
My whole Lipozene experience has been nothing but a major headache. And, did I mention that their pills DO NOT even work!!! They never made me feel any less hungry, I didn't lose a pound on them, and the MetaboUp (I think that is the name of it) never gave me any energy like they promised. So please if you have read this, don't buy Lipozene, and tell everyone you know not to. They are just a big company full of scam artist.
If you don't believe me, do your own research and you will see all the other customers who have been scammed!! Someone needs to shut this company down!!! Lipozene ripped me off for over $80, but luckily I was able to catch it before it got to be to bad. I have read other stories where people didn't catch the unathorized transactions for a few months, and they got taken for several hundred dollars!! Please stay away from this company, and don't put yourself at risk of being scammed!!
