What A Scam
Posted by KHBirdman on 08/20/2007
If you had purchased Colonex700 using the "Free Trial Offer" you are going to have major issues just like I did.

It all sounds great...FREE 15 day supply of Colonex700 to cleanse your colon and lose weight. However, this is a scam. You are getting a 15 day supply of pills but the Free Trial offer is 14 days. On the 15th Day, unless you cancel membership, you are charged $34.99 per 2 bottles plus $8.99 shipping each month.

The problem is that you CAN'T cancel because no one responds to your email when you send a letter to: support@colon700.com or if you call their toll free number at 1-866-440-7533.

I sent numerous emails and was on hold for over an hour and can't seem to ever get a live voice. I'm scoured the internet for other reviews of this company and have received the same information that they can't cancel their membership.

So, I had to cancel the account on my credit cards by claiming the card was lost of stolen and then having a new card issued to me. Thus, this company can no longer make charges on my card now that the account has been deactivated.

Their policy says: You are not obligated to purchase after you receive your free free trial bottle of the colon700 and you can cancel anytime within the 15 day cancellation period. Even if you decide to cancel, please keep the FREE bottle as our gift to you. To avoid being charged you must cancel before your 15th day trial period is over. There are NO refunds for the colon700 Autoship Program monthly orders that have already been shipped. You may cancel your Value Autoship Program by calling 1(866) 440-7533 Monday thru Friday 8am-5pm Pacific Standard Time or emailing our support department at support@colon700.com . In case of an exchange we do charge a $7 restocking fee for each bottle and do not refund shipping and handling. The 100% Satisfaction Guarantee applies only to the trial shipment. Shipping of $7.99 will be refunded once the bottle has been shipped back to us. No refunds or guarantees are available for the monthly shipment once it has been shipped.

It's a great return policy and cancellation policy but doesn't do any good if you can't reach a person on the other end.

So, please AVOID using this site as it is a total scam.

I'll be working with the Better Business Bureau or my media contacts to spread the word for people to not use this company.

I called the 866-440-7533 number used the menu and pressed #3 for product info. I actually talked to a live voice and told them I wanted to cancel my order. He ask for my zipcode and told me I would get a confirmation in my email within a couple minutes. I checked the email and there it was .... as of 911 I had been cancelled from there Colon 700 membership and would not receive any further charges from colon.. of course, I had just gotten 2 bottles in the mail yesterday. I will keep them I know they charge so much to restock each bottle.

Scammers
Posted by Ms. J on 06/18/2007
GLENDALE, CALIFORNIA -- This company makes its money by deceiving the public. You order a 14 day trial and in the small print somewhere they have you set up for auto ship. The next thing is that you are charged $78.98 for a order that is yet to be received. I feel like so many others that I have been had by this company. Apparently this is the only way for them to make money because apparently they can't be a legitimate business. These people are very hard to contact and I plan to never do business with them or anybody else on line. This has left a very bad taste in my mouth because they are not willing to refund your money if you don't want the product. It just isn't right for companies to be able to do this time and time again and to get away with it. Companies like this one needs to be stopped.

Let me also say that they deceive by calling themselves Colonex and Colonix, what a play. They know exactly what they are doing. You people should be ashamed of yourselves because you know exactly what you are doing. But can tell you this you will eventually have to answer to a higher source, your day will come.

Sounds like Colonex will clean you out in more ways than one!
Posted by Starlord on 2007-06-18:
How bright do you have to be to order something that there is no scientific or clinical proof that it works in any way, shape or form? The only thing I have heard of that is even dumber was on Mythbusters, a self-hypnosis CD that promised to change the color of one's eyes. DUMB!!!!
Posted by Anonymous on 2007-06-19:
You admit there is small print telling you that once ordered they set up automatic shipments. When clicking the order button you agreed that you understand the terms of the order. It's not a scam nor is it deceptive. They prey on customers not reading the terms and conditions of the 'free' order.
Posted by poppapia on 2007-06-19:
starlord, bravo! It's getting boring reading complaints such as this in which people expect a miracle cure for something, but don't bother to do any research, or read anything they agree to.
Posted by heaven17 on 2007-06-19:
PassingBy, you nailed it. Nobody reads those 'Terms' before they click 'OK' and companies like this depend on that.
Ignorance isn't always bliss, it seems.

Passingby it's a good thing people take the time to inform the rest of us who are not quite as smart as yourself about the pitfalls and traps laid by some of these companies, eh? . I've learned much on my3cents from other people's mistakes because they take the time to post their experiences here. It also gives those who are so much smarter than the rest of us an opportunity to sharpen their condescension skills.

Thank you Ms. J for giving a little something to everybody!

Wow, Stew. Those bran flakes not do the trick this morning?
Posted by JT54_Tracy on 2007-07-18:
Thanks for the information on this company and product. I am one of those Dumies that don't read the Terms. With that said I was jsut getting ready to place an order for more Colonex. The product works for me. However from what I've read from Mr J I shouldn't expect recieve what I am yet to be automaticly billed for. Anyone know how to get refund yet?
Posted by Roseythorns on 2007-08-06:
Umm well since your not bright enough to figure out that dr.natura and colonex700.com are different product you must have missed the terms..dr.natura sells a powder colonex700 sells capsules.....come on people this isnt rocket science here..just email the billing department as stated on the voicemail...jeeeez

I've been backed up big time due to pain meds and colonix does not only work, it works like right away within days things came out like avanlache and I feel great. I bet the OP is an employee or that weirdo with the thin hitler mustache spokesperson infomercial for Dual action cleanse.
I did research as always and found out Colonix is always in top 5 detox reviews and Dual action cleanse is not....surprisingly.
Posted by webina on 2009-06-04:
Dr. Natura Colonix 30 day cleanse system has prevented me from having over half of my colon removed surgically. I have severe diverticulitis (hospitalized three times), started using Colonix two years ago, twice a year, with taking only the powder a few times a week and have had no flare-ups since. It also eliminated my heartburn which I had had for 20 years & had previously had to take meds for. I have tried many other cleansers, but will never use anything else again. Well worth the money, never had problems with customer service or there has never been an autoshipping.

Can't Cancel
Posted by Harleyman on 07/30/2007
I didn't sign any agreement. There is no way to cancel. You call them and they put you on hold till you have to hang up. The web sight they tell you to go to , isn't there. I called my credit card company and told them I wasn't paying.

It doesn't matter if you sign anything or not. If you read the fine print, you will find that by accepting the 'free' sample, you are commiting to being shipped teh useless pills monthly and allowing the company to withdraw the funds from your account. You want to do things your way, and that really doesn't work. BTW, please kill your caps, it is considered shouting and is very rude, also very hard to read.
Posted by Anonymous on 2007-07-31:
I Googled Colonex 700 and found this site: www.colonex700.com/

Scroll to the very bottom and click on terms and conditions, there you will find why you are being charged, an email address as well as a phone # to call and cancel.


Posted by Roseythorns on 2007-08-06:
I tried calling them and they picked up..to get a refunds just email the billing department at support@colonex700.com I emailed in the morning and they repsonded in 3 hours. I sent the product back and received a refund minus shipping..
Posted by Taylee on 2007-09-10:
These websites make most of their money on the unsuspecting and on those that either don't have the time to search for the fine print, or are naive enough to believe in the honesty of others.

I got scammed the same way once by a software company that advertised 'free' software. Nowhere anywhere on their several pages of website did they mention any subscription or monthly charges. But there it was, buried in the fine print of the TOS. I contacted the FTC and spoke to a gentleman there. I told him he probably had more important cases of fraud to deal with, and that he might not even consider this to be deceptive trade practice. He asked me... "Were you deceived?" I said yes. He said..."Well then, it's deceptive trade practice" (ie fraud). It's just that simple.

Contact the company in question by email and in writing refuting the charges and then dispute the charge with your credit card company, giving the cc company copies of the correspondence you sent to the defrauding company. The charges should be removed within a month.

DO NOT BILL MY CREDIT CARD CANCEL COLONMATE YOLANDA COVINTON 352 257-5533
Posted by MsMindy on 2008-09-04:
I never even logged onto Colonex site and never even HEARD of this product. I DID, however, sign up for a teeth-whitening kit and AFTER checkout, I got a pop-up saying that I qualified for a "complimentary gift of Colonex 700" The next day I got slammed with and 89.97 charge on my mastercard, I called the company and got he message as Roseythorns...please email support@colonex700. Haven't heard anything as of yet.
There is a special bureau for internet crimes, and I think if enough people report this abuse something HAS to be done about it.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-09-04:
MsMindy, the bad news is Colonex 700 and the teeth-whitening kit are both complete scams. They share your info and put you on auto ship programs. It's in the very small fine print. They bait you in with the free trial, once they have your CC or bank info they go to town charging you what ever they want and when ever they want.

Most people that have come thru here with the same complaints have often had to close CC and bank accounts to keep these crooks from stealing there money.
Posted by MsMindy on 2008-09-04:
So, what do I tell my cc company? That my card was stolen? Or that an internet company is charging fraudulent charges? I'm sooooo mad about this?!!! And the bad part about my situation is that I have HORIBLE credit and am using a prepaid card that I get my financial aid deposited onto, so if I do report as stolen I'm not sure I'll get my funds back!
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-09-04:
You're in between a rock and a hard place on this one then. It's a little late but never sign up for anymore of these quote "free trails" on the Internet, they are never free. If you dispute the charges Colonex 700 will come back and say you agreed to the charges and dig up some obscure terms that you agreed to when you took the offer. So they can probably beat you on that one. You can try a dispute and see where it goes, you may get lucky and win.

The bad news is these crroks have your CC info and will hit it again. So yes it may be time to report the card as lost. Or maybe just confess that you gave the number to some bad guys and want a new number issued. Your CC company even though it's pre-paid may be able to put a block for further charges from the low lifes too.

Do hope it all works out in your favor.
Posted by Anonymous on 2008-09-04:
MsMindy, did you ever even get the Colonex 700? If you never got it that will work with your dispute. If you did get it, send it back Priority mail with a proof of delivery, not a signature as they will just refuse the return. Priority mail offers prood that it was deliverd without them having to sign for it.
Posted by MsMindy on 2008-09-04:
Thanks for the response superbowl!! On the phone with my cc company and luckily my funds are insured up to $100K......and told then about the company and this website and all the complaints with this company, they are going to work with me, they said since I've tried to contact the merchant with no response that THEY will then try to contact the company (and more than likely the company will not respond to them) and thus will be considered fraudulent and the funds will be deposited back into my account and teh comapany will be reported to the internet crimes bureau....so we'll see!!!

Thanks so much
Posted by MsMindy on 2008-09-04:
Also, EVERYONE complaining on THIS site needs to register with RipoffReport.com They allow you to file complaints and enough people filing a complaint on a particular comapany....results in action!! Come on,don't be a victim, stand up and be accounted for!!! We may not move the mountain, but we sure as hell can take the side off of it!!

The last thing I would consider is helping ED in anyway with his criminal RICO activities. I therefore have no active registration nor post at that cyber-rag.
Posted by MsMindy on 2008-09-04:
SORRY all, I'm new to ALL these sites......what wrong with Rippoffreport and who is ED.....if everyone is downing him and his site, I'd LOVE to know why and think I SHOULD know,s o I don't make a mistake and register, as I have NOT yet? At the very least all these complaints need to be filed with ICB.
Posted by Slimjim on 2008-09-04:
Ok, I'll go first. ED (as he likes to spell it with both uppercase), is the owner/operator of the website. Magedson allegedly controls the site's content to benefit himself via somewhat basic extortion techniques. Again, all alleged and never proven. I'm just repeating what I've heard, lol. There are many anti-ed sites out there now. This one is one of my favorites and I noticed they still are keeping it updated. Bully for their tenaciousness!.

Scam
Posted by Dissatisfied customer on 08/21/2007
HOUSTON, TEXAS -- Yes, I ordered the FREE trial of Colonex 700 and paid $6.99 plus $1.00 for mailing. I don't remember seeing any agreement on membership and automatic deduction from your account for continuous service.

I tried the product and didn't see any difference. Then one day I saw where $78 was deducted from my bank account. Couldn't find phone # for Colonex so I emailed them and told them I did not order any more of their product and they said I signed for membership and had to cancel within 14 days. I know I never saw that !!! I am a single mom and I would not sign up for Colonex to be taken out of my checking account monthly. I just wanted to try the FREE TRIAL that they offered!!! SO they refused me. I then sent two more emails and they finally said they would reimburse me for 1 bottle only and cancel my membership. So I did receive $34 for refund but I am still UPSET because I did not sign up for membership and I want a full refund.

Yes we need to all submit a letter to BBB immediately.

Good luck trying to cancel. Their contact phone & email is no longer being answered.
Posted by Anonymous on 2007-08-21:
The free trial offer probably came with a disclaimer that unless you cancelled within "x" amount of days, that you would be billed for more of their product. I don't know anything about Colonex, but a lot of companies do this, you just have to read the fine print very carefully because it's easy to miss.
here's a number I found that may help: 866.440.7533. And according to the Google search results, Colonex700 is changing it's name to Colon700 so as not to be confused with Colonix.

I Got Ripped Too
Posted by Colts #1 on 07/13/2007
Hi Everyone,

I tried the trial of Colonex, too. I am having the same problems with cancelling the auto-ship and getting my money back as you guys are. I say we contact the Better Business Bureau and complain like hell. I'm on a roll because I just got one of my doctors in trouble.

I CALLED AND TOLD THEM THAT I HAD BEEN ON VACATION FOR THE PAST THREE WEEKS AND DID NOT START USING THE PRODUCT UNTIL THIS LAST WEEK AND WAS NOT HAPPY WITH THE RESULTS. THEY SENT ME AN EMAIL RESPONSE BACK CONFIRMING MY CANCELLATION, BUT REFUSED TO REFUND THE 78.98. ANYONE OUT THERE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS OF WHAT I SHOULD DO? I ALSO HAVE DIABETES AND MY DR ADVISED ME NOT TO TAKE IT. THEY SAID IT WAS NOT THEIR PROBLEM ANYMORE BECAUSE I DID NOT CANCEL IT IN THE ALOTTED 14 DAYS. I AM PISSED!

Rip Off Scam
Posted by Whatthef? on 12/11/2008
This company charges you without you ordering, has no contact information when you complain, refuses refunds, won't accept returned products. Total SCAM! They DO have an address: 3600 Ocean View Blvd. Suite 2, Glendale, CA 91208.

Better Business Bureau has an F rating and shows they have 30 complaints and 2 out of 30 actually received a response to their complaints.

SHUT THEM DOWN!

Posted by Starlord on 2008-12-11:
If you did not order, why did they send you product and set up an account? I have seen other people state they did not order anything from them, but got charged $88+. Do you mean to suggest they just find your name and address at random and send you a bill? I find that rather hard to swallow. I got a dollar to a dog biscuit you sent for their free offer, which if you read the fine print, says the free offer is conditional on signing up for regular shipments and authority to access your bank account.
Posted by AuntJemima on 2009-01-29:
A trial period implies that you would try the product, and if you liked it, you would order, if not you would cancel. I had all intentions to order if I tried it and liked it. The scam is that they charge you before getting a chance to try it---knowing full well that the product is garbage and no one would buy once they try it. This false advertising. They need to be stopped. Now I dont even have the desire to try the product, I just want my money back. What a scam.

14 day Trial
Posted by I am not happy! on 06/16/2007
Auto ships and Free trials BUYER BEWARE. When agreeing to a free trial then an auto ship to follow. be sure and find out if the free trial starts when they ship it or when you receive it.
Also be sure that if for some reason you decide to cancel and you don't except the product when shipped to you. You will get your money back. When they recieve the product back.

IF ORDERING FROM THEM OR ANYONE READ THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. WHEN A COMPANY DOESN'T STAND BEHIND THERE RETURNS. DON'T DO BUSINESS WITH THEM.
Walgreen, GNC and all other companies will refund your money even if half of the product is gone.

I tried Colonex 700 www.colonex700.com and during the 14 day trial which actually turned out to be seven days from the day I received it.

Their product caused me abdominal cramps I was charged $78.98 on my credit card. I called and told them please do not send me the product. I was told I had to e-mail support. Support told me that they do not do refunds or returns even if the product is un-opened.

I am very upset and I feel as though I have been ripped off.

I will never order a FREE TRIAL of any product, just because they all pull this same scam.

In addition, colon cleansing? Give me a break. Any so-called colon- cleansing has no benefit whatsoever, and in fact, can be hazardous to your health. The body does quite a good job of cleansing itself internally. Did you not see the Penn & Teller episode of Bulls**t, where they had the woman who runs a colon cleansing clinic out of her home? No licensing, no medical training, no nothing, but she givesw people a high=tech, high cost enema. Sound like a scam to you?

Saw this ad. on side bar of internet with host television star.. Did try to get the 15 day trial and didn't recieve it before the 15 days up. So I call the 15th day, and they already sent the $88 shipment. I cancel, but too late.. Such a jurk am I for believing that this would happen the correct way... They wrote me and said, I did not get in the 15 day trial.. How could I.. No pills... This truly is a rip off for the $88. Cheaper same ingredients at most vitamin or herb store.. could kick myself for being such a fool..

Colonex 700 Colon Cleansing? Take Your Money And Run!
Posted by bevelo on 12/06/2008
Like the rest of you, I, too have been scammed by these people. They charged my card $88.97 before I even got the sample!!!! Never got anything else, nor do I want it.

I have had my card number changed and am having them get my money back.

Colonex and other colon cleanse products are nothing more than overpriced laxatives, which can be dangerous when used for weight loss. A $1.59 bottle of magnesium citrate or a Fleet enema would clean your colon out just as well.

I must disagree with your assertion the like the rest of us, you were scammed. I was never scammed by these people, because I never ordered any of their phony-baloney colon cleaning garbage. No one, and that means not one person, requires enemas or colonics on a regular basis. Dr, Kellogg was disproved long ago. I used to know a vegetarian who maintained that us meat-eaters had five pounds of unmdigested meat, rotting in our intestines. She got terribly upset when I asked her to provide some proof of her assertion, to the point where she claimed anyone with half a brain knew this. The body is amazingly efficient at extracting nutrients from food and disposing of what is left of it. If you feel it is absolutely necessary, get a hot water bottle and prepare a warm saline solution, and you know what to do with it frmm there.

How I Got My Money Returned
Posted by Jdv on 09/19/2007
I was also ripped off with the support@Colon700 but I am getting my money back. All I can tell you is to keep the packaging that the pills were mailed go to the post office and send the pills registered mail where someone has to sign for them. Also another way is to go to your bank and report the company. They will put your money back into your account until they investigate for themselves.

If they find out you did not cancel with support Colon 700 the bank will take back the money, so I know there are other people out there who were ripped off.

One or two problems with your post:

1. The scammers at Colon700 will not sign for their returns so you can not prove they got it back to get your refund.

2. Buried deep within the order process at Colon700 you have agreed to their autoship program if you do not cancel within XX number of days. They make it impossible to cancel.

3. If you dispute the charge but can not prove a return you lose. If Colon700 replies to your dispute and proves you have the goods or that you agreed to the autoship you lose.

These creeps are very, very good at scamming people and ripping people off and know all the tricks to beat you out of your money. They best thing you can do now is close the bank account or credit card you used as they will keep hitting it over and over. Many times without even shipping anything.

Best of luck to you and do hope you get your refund.

superbowl is correct. Technically you have not received a refund. Once Colon700 shows the bank where you agreed to the terms of the free offer, you lose. They clearly post on their web pages that they will not accept any returns - period. The really unfortunate part are people not reading the terms before they agree to the 'free' offer. That's how Colon700 and all the other former names get away with it. It's perfectly legal. Have you ever noticed that no one complains about being charged for the free sample?

superbowl and PassingBy: Excellent information !

Superbowl, how about launching a nice DOS attack on those colon-holes. Hope that WHOIS info doesn't lead to a bogus front corp.

DC, I don't go there. Need to leave that to our Russian and Chinese friends. Colon is hiding behind a domain proxy (spineless worms) what I posted was their ISP host. You have to assume that the ISP knows all about the scam and is probably part of the money train.

How did the Founders separate power horizontally?

There are three functions of government at each level of society. One function is to make the law, another is to administer the law and a third is to interpret the law. These are all on the same horizontal level and are referred to as the legislative, executive, and judicial functions of government. The Founders wanted these three functions to be separated into equal, independent departments. At the same time, they wanted to coordinate these functions so that one department could not function without the other two. Each department was therefore assigned to serve as a check on the others. The idea of the Founders was to have these functions of government "coordinated but never consolidated." This was one of the most ingenious devices contributed by the Founders.

If you notice wherever you got the brilliant idea of sending for the FREE sample. There was a disclaimer that said something to the effect of : Credit card required for shipping and handling of free sample. Accepting free sample is contingent upon subscribing to monthly shipment and electronic withdrawal. In other words it is not unauthorized withdrawal from your account. You gave them the account information, and by accepting the free sample, you agreed to the shipments of whatever it is, but also to the electronic withdrawal of funds to pay for said product. I wish people would understand this. Everyone who posts cries about the companies illegally taking their money. It is not illegal, dummies, you gave them that right.
