Colonex700.com Complaint - Ripped off

Review by margo369 on 2008-07-23
I sent for a free bottle of colonex just pay the shipping and handling and my bank got hit with a $88.97 charge and a late fee of $37.00.

What a rip off. Was not giving permission to do that and you can't get a hold of any one with the number giving.

You agreed to the additional charges when you signed up for the 'free' sample. Go back to their web pages and read the terms. What they do is sneaky but, unfortunately, legal.

Colonex700? Sorta like "Colon Blow" of SNL fame. Weight loss is a purely a matter of thermodynamics. To lose weight, one must consume fewer calories than one consumes...no magic potion or super-dooper-pooper laxative can do it for you.

Thanks for bursting my bubble Doc J.

If I've learned anything at all from my stint on my3cents it's that free trials are never free, Ashley makes horrible furniture and never post a review in all CAPS.

Margo, you also agreed to an auto ship program so they are not done with you yet. Watch your bank accounts and start sending certified letters to them at what ever address you have to stop the autoships. You may want to have a flag put on your bank account or close it as they will take money anytime they want.

The Fed's or someone has removed their web site but whoever was behind it it still around someplace. Good luck to you.

Chris Colonex is "supposed" to clean out your rear and help you loose some weight. Think prune juice and a good diet will do the same thing.

chris-There are about 50 similar products. They claim that there is 10-40 pounds of 'stuff' (yeah, THAT stuff) clinging to the inside of the average person's colon. The snake oil salesmen claim their pills will get rid of it. Colon cleansing fanatics are not new. Remember "Wellville"? Any rate, people DO lose weight with the stuff...the OP has $125.97 less with which to buy food!

Gee, I wonder if a refillable debit card that only had the minimum amount needed to get the free samples would have prevented any further attempts to charge the card. Hmmm, I believe it would.

Most of these scams just like the one above won't take a credit card. They insist on bank debits so they won't get hit with charge backs. Why people give out their bank info to these scams is a mystery.

DigitalCommando, that is a great suggestion, I never thought of that before. Are these refillable cards recognized as actual credit cards though?

chris513, some people use Colonex because they believe it cleanses toxins from their bodies and not only helps with weight loss but overall health in general.
