What You Need To Know About Slimfy

We have seen numerous diet pill manufacturers faking reviews on amazon over the past few years, but rarely have we seen a company do it so blatantly and lazily, literally reposting several reviews two or three times without changing any wording.

We believe that the majority of the five star reviews for Slimfy that have been left on amazon are fake or paid for by the company. This makes it even harder to trust the manufacturers of Slimfy.

What Are The Side Effects Of Slimfy?

With three separate supplements being taken one after the other, there is a huge range of side effects that could develop whilst these products are being used. The first stage supplement contains diuretic and laxative ingredients, and so could cause dehydration and diarrhoea, and could lead to much more serious side effects, also including a deficiency of electrolytes. Low levels of electrolytes include muscle cramps, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, trembling, muscle weakness, and stiff or aching joints.

In the most severe cases, more serious symptoms can occur, such as low blood pressure, tachycardia (rapid heart rate), sunken eyes, confusion or loss of consciousness for even a brief moment, and poor skin elasticity. The second and third stage products do not contain laxatives, but could still cause some side effects.

How Much Does Slimfy Cost?

Each 60 capsule box of Slimfy – either Stage 1, Stage 2, or Stage 3 costs $77.60 each. Alternatively, you can buy Stage 2 as two packets and get one free, so have the full three package program for $155, this works out at $51.73 each.

Our Verdict On Slimfy

Slimfy and the company behind it has neglected to provide basic information about ingredients and contents. Stage 1 especially may cause unpleasant side effects and Stage 2 and Stage 3 do not look much better. The website descriptions of how the supplements are supposed to aid weight loss are vague, and customers need to look elsewhere to find detailed information on the purposes and safety of each ingredient.

The idea of a three-stage weight loss plan sounds appealing thanks to pushy marketing that tells you that there are three stages of weight loss that need to be addressed independently but the product fails to actually deliver on the promises made by the manufacturers.

We believe that the three products that make up the Slimfy Three Stage Weight Loss Program are unlikely to aid significant weight loss. Even if they did help consumers to lose some weight, they are definitely not worth the exorbitant prices charged by the manufacturers.

We do not recommend Slimfy to our readers!

Slimfy Review

Slimfy is a US made weight loss programme that you use to help you through three stage of your weight loss. All the ingredients are advertised as 100% natural, but the use of raspberry ketones, which is typically lab synthesised to remain cost effective makes this debatable.

Slimfy Facts

  • The Slimfy address is 1451 W Cypress Creek Rd, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33309
  • You are going to need the Customer Service Department phone numbers! Call them toll-free at 855-5SLIMFY (855-575-4639) or local number +1 (305) 587-2230
  • Slimfy have some very complicated terms and conditions to explain their billing policy. We have never seen anything quite like it!

Stage 1 is Weight Loss and Detox. According to the product advertising this should always be first because it “enhances and cleanses digestion”.Stage 2 is Enhanced Weight Loss, which, according to the manufacturers, increases the metabolic rate. Stage 3 is Weight Loss Maintenance; this is supposed to help to help to prevent weight loss in the long term, although they fail to specify how the supplement does that.

How to Take Slimfy

Take one capsule twice a day, with a large glass of water and at least 30 minutes before a meal.

We dislike the terms and condition laid out by Slimfy on their official website, especially regarding their “satisfaction guarantee” which is heavily restricted. The company can be contacted using the following information:

Slimfy Concerns:

  • Most people will not realise they have signed up for auto shipping when they buy this supplement.
  • Inadequate ingredients information. You really have no idea just what you are taking.
  • The guarantee encourages people to post positive before and after pictures in the hope of getting a refund.

The Customer Service Department phone numbers are as follows: Call them toll-free at 855-5SLIMFY (855-575-4639) or local number +1 (305) 587-2230. Slimfy are based at 1451 W Cypress Creek Rd, Ft Lauderdale, FL 33309. Based upon customer reports, the company often offers to phone the consumer back to arrange their refund, but fails to do so- persistence is definitely required when talking to the Slimfy Customer Service team!

What Does Slimfy Claim To Do?

The manufacturers of Slimfy claim that the product is an “award winning, proven, fast acting, safe and effective” weight loss solution, boasting that it is a “revolutionary” three step, complete weight loss program. They also claim that Slimfy is clinically proven and doctor recommended. The manufacturers of the product appear to be backing the weight loss potential of the popular ingredient raspberry ketones.

Does Slimfy Work?

It is impossible to say what it will do when we are unable to see an ingredients list and the only available feedback is posted on the Slimfy site by people who have been paid to do it.

We don’t think it will work. Many of the ingredients lack evidence that they will do anything at all.

What Are The Ingredients of Slimfy?

As there are three separate supplements in the Slimfy program, one for each stage of the program, there are a lot of ingredients, and the various side effects and potential benefits of each supplement vary hugely. The individual ingredient quantities are all provided, and are per serving of two capsules.

Stage 1 Detox and Weight Loss

Serving Size: 2 Tablets – Servings per Container: 30

  • Green Coffee Bean Extract: This ingredient was featured on the Dr Oz show and is one of the ingredients that got him into trouble with the authorities for making false claims about weight loss ingredients that lack proof. Research results indicate that slight weight loss may be caused by chlorogenic acid – present in unroasted or green coffee beans, which appears to inhibit glucose into the blood stream.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2943088
  • Milk Thistle: Natural plant that is believed to be effective for liver damage such as poisoning and alcohol abuse. It is also believed to be effective for treating allergies, acid reflux and heartburn. It has a laxative effect and can cause side effects such as vomiting and nausea.
  • Hydrangea: This diuretic ingredient derived from the commonplace garden plant can be dangerous in high quantities and you should not take it for any more than a few days. It causes increased urine out put.
  • Saffron: Spice derived from the crocus flower and important in culinary use. When tested on women between 21 and 45 it seemed it might play a role in eliminating snacking. However, results require further testing.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20579522
  • Ginger: This familiar spice with culinary use is often taken to treat stomach upsets. With the rest of the ingredients, you might need it!

Stage 2 Enhanced Weight Loss

Serving Size: 2 Tablets – Servings per Container: 30

  • Green Coffee Bean Extract: Despite the claims of the advertising that bangs on about changing the ingredients so that you do not build up tolerance – here is green coffee bean extract again as a principle ingredient.
  • Raspberry Ketone Extract: One of Dr Oz’s so called miracle ingredients It has only been tested on mice rats and guinea pigs and this revealed that when extremely high doses of Raspberry Ketones were ingested it altered the metabolism and prevented the formation of lipids and fats. No evidence that it does this for humans.
  • Saffron: See Stage 1.
  • Maqui Berry: South American berry known for its high levels of antioxidants. May help increase metabolism and may be of benefit to general health.
  • CoQ10: Natural body substance similar to a vitamin that plays a role in the production of energy. CoQ10 is obtainable by diet – especially oily fish and organ meats such as liver and kidneys. Can cause insomnia. May have health benefits but amounts contained in this supplement are unknown.
  • Resveratrol: Natural phenol found in red wine and foods including peanuts that may have heart health benefits. However, clinical testing has mainly been carried out on animals and it lacks evidence about efficacy and safety in humans long term.
    Source:http://www.webmd.boots.com/vitamins-and-minerals/resveratrol

Stage 3 Weight Maintenance

Serving Size: 2 Tablets – Servings per Container: 30

  • African Mango Extract: Also known as Irvingia Gabonensis, this ingredient has had some limited clinical testing. The University of Cameroon found that it helps create metabolic pathways i.e. may improve leptin resistance and help weight loss. However it was only tested on 102 people so does require further testing and evidence.
    Source: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/9820262
  • Green Tea Extract: We love green tea! It works best for health when drunk as a beverage in replacement for sodas and it is rich in antioxidants helping both health and weight loss. Amounts in this supplement unknown.
  • Caralluma Fimbriata: Succulent Asian plant, which has appetite-suppressing qualities and has performed well in clinical testing. Although results are promising, it is not proven and the effective dose for weight loss has yet to be identified.
    Source: https://www.dietpillswatchdog.com/caralluma-fimbriata-the-magical-fat-loss-agent
  • Lychee Extract: There have been no clinical studies that look at whether Lichi (or Lychee) supplements curb appetite or reduce body weight. There just isn’t any proof that it works.
    Source: http://www.thefreelibrary.com/What’s+to+lose%3f-a0288872375
  • CoQ10: As above. See Stage 2!

Some of the ingredients look OK but you have to remember that this may not be the full list of contents and of course we have no idea of knowing the ingredient amounts.

Stage 1 is of concern. Milk Thistle and Hydrangea are laxatives and diuretics respectively, and are known for causing side effects. Many of the ingredients such as Revesterol green coffee bean and raspberry ketones lack evidence that they work.

In addition, the Slimfy advertising has made a big point about warning the customer about building up tolerance to ingredients and then included the same ingredients in more than one supplement – such a green coffee bean.

Does Slimfy Have Any Side Effects?

With three separate supplements being taken one after the other, there is a huge range of side effects that could develop whilst these products are being used.

The first stage supplement contains diuretic and laxative ingredients, and so could cause dehydration and diarrhoea, and could lead to much more serious side effects. Laxatives can interfere with the absorption of the contraceptive pill, as well as the absorption of other medications and vitamin supplements. Consumers should consult their doctor if they have any concerns about using this product in conjunction with the contraceptive pill.

Using laxatives can lead to both dehydration and a deficiency of electrolytes, which can both lead onto more serious side effects, especially if not dealt with properly. Calcium, chlorine, magnesium, phosphate, potassium, and sodium are all obtained from fluids, supplements, and foods, but increasing fluid output can decrease their levels in the body – even sweating due to exercise can significantly lower electrolyte levels. Side effects of low levels of electrolytes include muscle cramps, dizziness, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, trembling, muscle weakness, and stiff or aching joints.

In the most severe cases, more serious symptoms can occur, such as low blood pressure, tachycardia (rapid heart rate), sunken eyes, confusion or loss of consciousness for even a brief moment, and poor skin elasticity. If any of these occur, a medical professional should be consulted immediately.Regular and long term use of laxatives can also lead to dependency upon them, as the bowel’s muscles become weaker over time. Check out our article on the dangers of using laxatives for weight loss for more information.

The second and third stage products do not contain laxatives, but could still cause some side effects.

Raspberry Ketone is under-researched at this time, especially in the large doses used in supplements, and so there are no known side effects. Some consumers of other raspberry ketone products have noted raspberry flavoured breath and burps, but this seems to be the worst side effect reported.

Both green tea and green coffee bean contain naturally occurring caffeine. Consuming large quantities of caffeine can lead to headaches, increased heart rate, increased blood pressure, heart palpitations, increased urination, dehydration, jitteriness, dizziness, and insomnia. Green tea can also cause constipation.

Side effects may include:

  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Stomach discomfort and cramps
  • Gas
  • Diarrhoea
  • Increased need to urinate
  • Dehydration

Caution:

Avoid if pregnant or breast-feeding. Do not take if you are sensitive to stimulants or caffeine and avoid if you suffer from a heart related medical condition. Do not take if you suffer from stomach problems and seek medical advice prior to taking if you are on prescription medication. Some of the ingredients included in this supplement may cause drug interactions. Slimfy lacks a proper ingredients list so amount quantities are unknown and there may be added ingredients that are not mentioned in the advertising.

Are There Any Customer Reviews For Slimfy?

There are a significant number of customer reviews for this product on amazon; as the product is also sold on the official product website, many of the reviews are not verified amazon purchases. However, there are also accusations from disgruntled customers that many of the positive customer reviews have been faked to boost the company’s online reputation.

Of the 67 five star reviews, only three were verified amazon purchases, and the majority were posted in quick succession in 2015. There are also some reviews that are reposted almost word for word by different reviewers. Overall, we suspect that many of the positive reviews for this supplement were paid for or faked.

The three reviews below were all posted twice by different reviewers.

This is perfect if you need to lose weight in a hurry but want to be safe! This is a 3 part system and right now. I’m on step 1 and I have seen pictures of before and after and I can’t wait till them extra pounds come off! All I do is take 1 pill before every meal and can eat what I want! I will keep you informed of my weight loss!

So far it helped me to get rid off a few pounds of fat which was great for my body complexion. I have a sensitive stomach and to make digestion of the tablet easy,So far so good – with no side effects. I am going to complete the whole set, since I am already getting results. I hope this will help keeping losing those unwanted pound especially my belly fat, awesome product

I’ve been struggling my whole life with my weight and I really hoped this would be the answer. I’ve gone ahead and ordered the product and signed up to the gym as well. I already lost more than a quarter of what I wanted before the end of the year and it’s been only two weeks so far. Is this crazy or what? I really felt like I need to post something about this stuff. Just wanted to share it.

There are also numerous negative reviews, with customers stating that they noticed no results whilst using the supplement, that they were refused a refund despite being within the money back guarantee period, and that they received poor customer service.

These products did nothing for me. I am fit and exercise and eat healthy. I wanted to lose a few lbs. They laughed when I told them that and said no problem. I called to cancel after seeing no results and they said keep using it. Now, after stage 2 has also not helped, I asked for the refund since they have a 90 day money back guarantee. Their “policy” is you only get a refund if stage 2 is unopened and sealed. How is this a 90 day money back guarantee? It is not. Very poor integrity.

Completely waste of money, not even a noticable loss of weight.

This did not work for me. I ordered the trial from their website. After trying stage one and trying 2 pills from stage two decided it was not for me. I was reassured could get refund but was told no when I called. This may work for some but did not work for me. Try at your own risk.

I just started stage 1. I have not lost anything. Its only been 4 days though. OK so here’s the “skinny”. I read through ALL the reviews. I know amazon sellers can “pad” their reviews. I think that is scamy and its definitely been done here. I mean some of the same exact word for word reviews with a different name attached? Give me a break. But I bought it anyways because I really want to get the last 10-15 pounds off. So far juicing gives better, faster results and juicers are cheaper and you know exactly what you are putting in your body. I’ll update after I go through all 3 stages but I think people should know the ratings have been tampered with here.

Did not do anything for me, but did give me some stomach problems

Does Slimfy Offer a Money-Back Guarantee?

Slimfy claim that they offer a satisfaction guarantee to customers, but they impose so many restrictions and come up with some ridiculous hoops for customers to jump through, both of which make it very difficult to get a refund in practice.

The policy does not covered opened or used products, which definitely means that they have misused the term ‘guarantee’:

WE WILL NOT HONOR EMPTY OR USED BOTTLE RETURNS!

Full terms and conditions can be found on their official website, but we have included the key returns information below.

SATISFACTION: We want You to be satisfied with our products and services. If you are ever not satisfied with any product that you ordered, you may call our customer service and discuss it with us. If you are calling about refunding a purchase, our customer service team will handle it on a case by case basis

REFUND ELIGIBILITY:

  • New Customer (person who has received the first shipment of Slimfy and have not ordered any Slimfy products in the past). Any original factory-sealed, unopened bottles that you have received from your original shipment can be returned to us within 30 days for a refund, minus shipping and handling costs. Up to 25% re-stocking fee may be charged in case the products arrive back to us not in resellable condition – damaged, opened, etc.
  • Repeat Order Customer (person who has received the second shipment of Slimfy and/or has purchased Slimfy products in the past) Only the last shipment can be returned for a refund (minus shipping and handling costs, minus re-stocking fee) within 15 days providing the Products are in their original factory-sealed, unopened condition.

It may take up to 30 business days to appear in your statement, depending on the speed of the processing bank.

Where Can I Buy Slimfy?

You can buy Slimfy direct from the product website but be careful. They use auto billing as a standard practice so you can expect to be sent further supplies of this diet pill package, and for your account to be billed automatically.

Slimfy offer a “free 30 days trial”. This is not actually free and it signs you up to an auto-billing programme. Slimfy state that in the terms and conditions that they operate;

NEGATIVE BILLING OPTION INVOLVING THE PRODUCTS YOU ORDER FROM THE COMPANY…YOU WILL BE LIABLE FOR PAYMENT OF PRODUCT THAT WAS SHIPPED TO YOU.

This does not only apply to the free trial. It applies to all orders. Each 60 capsule box of Slimfy – either Stage 1, Stage 2 or Stage 3 costs $77.60 each. Alternatively, you can buy Stage 2 as two packets and get one free, so have the full three package program for $155, this works out at $51.73 each.

Take note. Slimfy state:

If we don’t hear from you within 60 days, you agree to continue the Slimfy Weight Loss Program and receive a 30-Day Supply of Product on a monthly basis, repeating every Slimfy™ Stage every 3rd month (1,2,3,1,2,3…) until cancelled.

After 150 days, most people will have forgotten about Slimfy until the payment is taken out of their accounts.

If you want to try Slimfy, you can also find it on Amazon via various sellers.

One complete 3-supplement package costs $194. The individual stages cost $97.00 each. If you do buy from Amazon, it will be a first! Nobody else appears to have bought Slimfy via Amazon.

  1. “Slimfy,” sports, and healthy eating! I took these supplements for 2 months. The results are noticeable sooner if you take them in combination with physical activities and restrict fatty foods. I am very satisfied with my results.

  2. First of all, Slimfy is an all natural product. These supplements gluten free, 100% vegan, Organic, made in the USA and contain no GMO’s. I took them according to usage instruction and got slim as I wished. I have lost 26 lbs during 3 month. As well as I had a great suppurt from Slimfy tean all this time. For now I have pause for couple month and continue with Detox step. Good products, really work!

  3. I would really like to thank Slimfy team who have put so much kindness in to creating these wonderful products. I lost 66lbs and have managed to maintain my weight at around 160lbs. Losing this weight and adopting a healthy diet has meant that a long term sciatica problem is almost gone. Slimfy really works so have faith in it.

  4. I love this product. It really gives me incredible energy all day. I work a lot of long hours at work plus run 4 to 5 times a week. Thanks to Detox I cleaned my body and during month I lost 10 lbs, then I took stage-2 and stage-3. It’s really helped me get through my busy lifestyle as well as keep my appetite under control. The thing is you have to remember use it before your main meals – for instance, before lunch and dinner and drink lots of water 🙂 Following the directions helps a lot.

  5. I used Slimfy about 7 months ago and couldn’t be happier with the results. With the weight loss, I also fell out of the diabetes risk bracket I was in and am so thankful for the diet and Slimfy that helped me lose almost 60 lbs.

  6. I have used these products for 3 months along. I have lost 19 pounds and three!!! dress size without adding exercise. I have not experienced any side effects like rapid heart beat or nausea. I eat a balanced diet and have added low impact workouts to tone my muscles. All I need – drink a lot of water, like 8 glasses, and reduce drinking coffee, actually I change it to green tea.
    I love these products and look forward to achieving my weight goal.
    To all dissatisfied I’d like to say: just be careful when you place your order. Read all terms and you wouldn’t feel yourself stupid.

  7. I wish I had read these before getting sucked in. Now I’m too scared to try them coz in my job I can’t just nip to the loo if I have diarrhoea, and a moment loss of consciousness, that would be disastrous in my job !!!!

  8. I Payed +-R400 Shipping For Free Slimfy Online The Next Day Slimfy Debited +-R2000 Unlawfully Without My Authorization In My Bank Account Claiming Its For Step 2 Thatl Come Along With Free Step One. Its 2Months Now I Haven’t Received A Thing From Slimfy And They Ignore My Refund Requests Emails. They Only Response I Got Was That I Won’t Get My Shipping Money And I Must Bring Their ‘Package’ Back Before Talking About Any Partial Refund I Will Not Get Because 30Days Has Passed.
    It Looks Like Dept Of Health Refused Their Package To Enter The Country For Lots Of Various Reasons And Its Clear To Me That Slimfy Stole My Money Knowingly Because They Were Suppose To Import Their Product Where Its Allowed.
    Please AnyOne Help Me On How To Get My Money Back From These Corn Artists Slimfy.
    Its Clear They Live By Stealing From Vulnerable People Whom Are Keen To Slim Down From Their ‘Questionable Product’

    Yours In Nation Building !

  9. I have exactly the same problem when they charged me for the stage 2 (USD87) I called my credit card company but nothing much they can do because it mention in the page that they will charge us for the USD87(if you scrool down the bottom pages you will see the T&C) Here what i learn and what i can guide you guy what to do.

    1. Call you credit card company and block your card immediately. Replace your credit card with new card number. Please bare in mind that USD87 has been charged to you blocked card, meaning slimy still can charge you only for that particular transaction and they cannot charge you for stage 3 if any. If you read the term they mention they will charge your credit card EVEERY MONTH if you did not ask them to stop. Meaning as long as you don’t ask them to stop, then they will charge you USD87 monthly until you call them or email to them. If you guys already get the stage 2 bottle then please email to them to tell them you want to stop the stage 3 with immediate effect

    2. In my case i did send email to slimy and they told me the the package is on the way and they cannot cancel the whole deal. they said stage1 and 2 is interrelated. they told me if i want to cancel then i have to return back the bottle to them but no refund on the shipment cost. So i told them that i will return back the bottle to them as soon as i received the bottle (DO NOT OPEN THE BOTTLE)

    Meaning i have to pay for shipment fee from US to my country and I also have to pay the shipment fee from my country back to US. My advice to the rest of people out there, if you intended to buy this product, please please please read the whole page before you key in your credit card information. I have to pay a premium price for my ignorant and eager to slim down.

    1. It also happened to me yesterday, a national holiday, when people binge all day. If you learn English, this is what would happen to you someday. I was reading a Reuter article followed by this sponsor AD disguised as a state-of-the-art medical discovery. I discovered it was an ad only after pushing “submit” button on my tiny smart phone. I also had to have my card blocked for overseas transaction this morning at 2:40 am after receiving a notice blip that they charged me for US 87. I did write to them, but I doubt I would receive any reply. They are practically an international scammer

  10. Same thing happened to me…be very careful with them. They said it was a free trial and charged me over $100. I told them I was not interested in any more of their products but after a month, they sent another one and charged me $100 again, without authorization from my part. This is a total scam, contact your bank and hopefully they will guide you and you get your money back but it will not be easy since they have your card number. And change your account because they will just keep billing you every month.

  11. I have the same experience as the first comment above.
    I ordered the trial, with shipping only (about $18).
    I asked them not to bill me any other charges until I give the go ahead. I am in Thailand and have not gotten the first shipment.
    They billed me the second installment of about $87 despite my e mails.
    This is fraudulent in my opinion.
    I am disputing the charge with them and the credit card company. I will see the results.
    It looks like a scam to me.

  12. Hi All, SLIMFY is scam company. They charged me shipping and one order in total $48. When I slept at 01:00 Indonesia time, that’s gonna be 13:00 Florida Time, they charged me another $87.30. I have never authorized the second one. When I asked the bank to credit back to me, Slimfy emailed and said that I was trying to fraud them and it’s a federal crime. I told them that it’s a federal crime for frauding customer. They charged me that I have never authorized. Now, the bank charged me back. This is not good for doing busines like this. I really regret being a fool customer.

  13. There was no cost attached only that you have to order right now. I was scammed one. That’s why I did my research. Thank you.

  14. They told me the cost for stage 1 and 2 would cost $27.00 which I paid yesterday with my credit card. Today I looked at my bank account and they have taken another $125.00 out of my account. At the moment I am angry and crying because me and my family are having financial problems, and they have taken part of my much hard-earned rent money. I feel terrible for just ordering this product on a whim and not finding out more about it. I’m at my wits end because now I have to come up with the money for the rent without my partner knowing.
    I guess this is a lesson learned, and I’ll never do this again without checking.

  15. This slimfy is a scam these people have to go to jail for what they doing they promise a charge of $18 and took $90 on top of the $18 I need a site where I can report these people

    1. I just order a trial period for 18.94$ are they charge automatically on the second stage of the program?

      I am waiting for your response Lisa. Thank You

    2. They will take it out without notifying you. You need to move your money into another account. They did this to me today.

    3. those who were fooled by SLIMFY.. make sure to have your credit card change as soon as possible as they will try to charge your account w/ stage 3.

  16. I also was scammed by Slimfy – I bought $18 wirth and the next day was charged over $100 on my credit card. Can we report this company?

    1. Do you know how to stop billing if I gave them the credit card? I got billed two times $100 each. The credit card company said I can’t stop the card. Please help.

    2. You can report to your credit card company saying that you have lost your credit card. Then they will stop further transactions.

  17. The product is nothing great. But the company is a complete cheat. They fraudulently used my credit card information to increase their sale. They used my confidential credit card information to sell their product forcibly to me. This is a fraud company.

    1. The product is nothing great. But the company (Slimfy) is a complete cheat. They fraudulently used my credit card information to increase their sale. They used my confidential credit card information to sell their product forcibly to me. This is a fraud company.

  18. I don’t want to Richie any more skimpy. I didn’t find it any good . And you sent me another one how can I pls stop it thanks Paula xuereb

  19. yes they cheated me too by saying its free product and then cut 330 dihrams without my acknowlegement. they simply trying to sell their product on others by force. i wish if somebody do case on them like this they lotted me as i dont have alot of money nd i wasnt willing to buy it due to my tight badgate. they spoiled my monthly budget by charging me . its simply cheating nd frude. MY GOD TRAPE THEM IN BIG FRUDE CASE FOR CHEATING OTHERS FOR NO REASON>

    I am about to die ,i cannt afford my this loss.

    1. Scammed me too. I only wanted to give this product a go because of the “free” 30 day trial. 30 day trial my ass!! Less than a week later I get charged £80-something. Ridiculous. No thanks, I’ll stick to exercise and celery sticks.
      DON’T BUY THIS!!!!

  20. Hi I’m caridad sugita leaving here in japan , I ordered slimfy months ago , it is not working for me, I won’t to stop my order immediately, please send me an email to confirm my request , thank you very much

  21. I agree from the comment made by Mary from Ireland. The terms and conditions are totally unclear and hence easy to trick people. The first stage made me ill, nauseus and bloated. I just did not get on with this product. I assumed that before you get on to Stage 3 that they will at least find out how you got on with the other Stages and they should ask you if you would like to carry on prior to sending the next stage and then taking the money out. I have tried to explain this to the Slimfy customer services and that I did not want Stage 3 and I did not want the product to be sent. I called my bank And cancelled my payment and my card. Now I have just received an email from their Legal Department.
    This whole thing is a total scam. Please do not buy this product.

  22. I bought this product over the weekend and just as everyone else said, the terms were not on the face of the free offer.

    They never said upfront that the other 2 stages were mandatory and so as a customer I feel like they tricked me.

    I have not been charged for the third stage as yet but this company should not be allowed to get away with such thievery. I honestly didn’t mind going through the detox and then deciding to try stage 2 and then stage 3 but they took this away from me. As a customer, you never want to feel cheated or bamboozled because then you question whether they are selling you garbage because of the need to trick the customer into purchasing.

    I am therefore going to be looking into the legality of what they are doing.

  23. You are imply charge to my card when I don’t order. I need to change my card because of u guys. I feel it’s stupit work

  24. I am in Ireland!!!

    This is a scam!!!! I signed up for trial’ – was charged €18.09.
    A few days later I check my credit card balance – and I am charged a further €83.60.

    I am throwing out the tablets – no idea of ingredient amounts. Afraid to use them.

    Corruption is everywhere on the net!!

    Don’t be caught out like me!!

  25. HI, THE SLIMFY IS SCAM!!!!!! I DID ORDER PRODUCTS FOR 18.25 EUROS , DAN THE TOOK FROM MY CARD 1 EUROS AND AGAIN 82 EUROS. I BLOCKED MY CARD. I HOPE WON DAY THE GET WHAT HONORED…

  26. i experienced the same the terms and conditions on sales are not very clear , It start when I thought i was getting the trial product for free by paying only shipping charges i ended up being charged for the second stage . then when i was about to finish the second stage Was surprised with the bank massage that I had already being charged for stage 3. questioning who told you to charge my account direct as haven’t ordered for stage no 3 , they came up with the stories that I must take all the three stages that is the agreement I entered when I bought the first stage , and when I returned the product they deduct a lot of money on shipping costs . so ended up receiving less that what I paid for . when I questioned them why the shipping cost has changed from the original they charged when sending the product they told me that when you return the product you don’t get shipping discounts. and you end up in a loss. find it very confusing and tricky …..

  27. so far so good for me. Ordered and received within 3 days… and am in Zambia….effect…I feel great! more energy, more alert mentally, suppressed appetite… have not checked my weight yet but I have visibly lost weight…today is day 8!

  28. This is SCAM !!!
    I ORDER PRODUCT FOR 20 DOLLARS BEFORE 15 MINUTES, THEY TOOK FROM MY CARD 50, AND AFTER 87.
    I BLOCKED MY CARD BEFORE FEW MINUTES.

    1. Yeah you’re right..it was also happened to me few hours ago..i paid 28.94 usd..and now i receive sms from my bank and trying to get 87 usd..wow how come they have access on my account?SCAM

  29. Thanks for the post and i can see a lot of folks are responding well as with regards to their various experience. Also i thought may be your post should be a bit more larger so as to reveal even more details for folks but still a great post. I did some digging myself and i found out quit a lot of positive than the negative results from people who are actually using the products.

    Great customer service relationship will always prevail and i think that is what folks really want to see improvements on.

    In overall great post thanks for sharing.

  30. Hi im justine, I received my slimfy product but got a bill of 5,673.55 pesoos charged to my credit card 3 times . I thought it was free just pay the dhl express fee of 1,200 something only .Please cancel next and all succeeding orders because i am not happy with the product and i am having hypertension. I want to discontinue using slimfy. Please process the cancellation of slimfy asap. and stop charging my credit card. It said it was for fre .. Please cancel my card this is a fraud

    1. If half you people would read the actual information you would see no where doe it say FREE TRIAL..It only says your getting a free 30 day supply with the Introductory Kit. WHY DO YOU NOT MENTION THE RESOLUTION?? DID THEY REFUND YOU??

      WERE THEY NICE ABOUT IT??

    2. Have fun to get a refund I been trying for the last month to get one had no pill off them and they are not polite at alll…

  31. An absolute scam and I got suckered in. No such thing as a “Free Trial” as my account was debited immediately for $87.00 followed by $118.00 within days of my requesting the “Free Trial”, they did not wait for the one month as stated. Needed to cancel credit card to get out of this. My bank raising dispute but not hopeful. They advise that they receive several calls a day re this type of sharp practice.

  32. hi michael stevenson i received my slimfy product but got a bill of 5,673.55 pesoos charged to my credit card . I thought it was free just pay the dhl express fee of 1,200 something only .Please cancel next and all succeeding orders because i am not happy with the product and i am having hypertension. I want to discontinue using slimfy. Please process the cancellation of slimfy asap. and stop charging my credit card.

  33. Not sure what happened to my comment so once again will cancel any further delivers of any slim fi products I Do Not want stage 3 as I am not at all happy with your product do not take money out of my account. Please acknowledge this emai.

  34. I was just about to register for this product as a little booster. Thank you as I will not now…on the good news side….I have cut out all dairy products, sugar and pasta, bread, all carbohydrates. Drink much more water and in one week (5 days) I have lost 5lb and this is without any exercise. Yes I’ve had headaches but it’s been very incitful that all it takes is true determination to succeed, as long as I am doing it for myself I’m going to succeed. I’m simply just changing the way I eat…oh and no acolhol or energy fizzy drinks. Try it for a month that’s my dieting plan.
    Once again Thank you for saving me money as the only pound I want to lose is weight not cash! Good luck everyone

  35. am just so glad am reading this…and with a lot of comment from people. Thank God have not taken the step that i will totally regret

  36. oh thank you so much for those informations. I am planning to sign and order too but with your helps guys who tried first, gain nothing! thanks a lot. God is always good..

  37. Please I am in Ghana, West Africa. I heard of your products and I would like to order for some. What process should I pass through or what are the requirements as I am not in the USA. Besides, if you have branches in any part of Africa including Ghana, I would be most grateful to know.

    Kind Regards

    1. hello friend. Don’t try to sign up and order.. you must read and analyze the term and conditions before you order because many people who got nothing and deducted payments into their accounts..sorry for my comment, Im just a concern friend trying to help you.. 🙂

    2. OMG SAME THING HAPPENED TO ME! I already told them that BEFORE i proceeded to take their so called free trial w/c is the Stage 1, i did not read anything about autodebiting the 2nd Stage to my credit card!.clearly now it is their scheme to scam people!!! Until now im still working on it to cancell all their unauthorized transaction to my credit card. Grrrr so much hassles!

  38. I have not yet received my order of one bottle and have been charged $29 and four days later charged $128. Not impressed!

  39. DO NOT SIGN UP FOR A FREE TRIAL!!!!! I signed up for a free trial this morning, where the only ‘cost’ advertised was the cost of postage. When I finished the transaction, the screen showed an ‘Invoice’ to the value of $20.04 (US Dollars). I immediately received an email showing the same value, but in a section of the email labelled Introductory Kit Information, there is a sentence that reads “the Stage two payment of $87.30 is due within thirty days of your initial order”. My intention was to try the ‘free product’ and see if it suited me. There was no reference to signing up for anything other than the ‘free offer’ and I saw no terms and conditions on the sign up page or anything stating that by signing up for the ‘free offer’, I was committing to the purchase of anything else. I immediately emailed [email protected] (I am not in the US) told them I no longer wanted the product, as I had been signed up for something I did not consent to. I contacted my bank for advice, only to find that they had taken the postage fee for the ‘free offer’ PLUS the $87.30. I have sent them a further email stating that I don’t want the product and to respond to me as a matter of urgency. If this product does what it claims, there would be no reason to scam people in this manner – and what I have described is ‘scam’. If this company was reputable, there would be no reason to market and sell the product in the manner that I have experienced and has been outlined in the article above. I consider myself to be an intelligent person, but I now feel like an utter fool – an out of pocket fool. I’ll keep you posted.

    1. The same thing has happened to me(although I haven’t received anything yet) and I have just read that they keep sending the pills so I’ve decided to cancel my card so they cannot bill me again.

    2. Same happened to me 🙁 this is a BiG SCAM!!! I signed for a free trial and ended up being charged 200USD for something I didn’t want!!!
      I send a complaint to Slimfy support however not received any reply back.

  40. I ordered a free trial and my card was charged over a 100 dollars I am terribly upset as they tricked me and to top it up I haven’t even received my product.
    It’s a scam please please please do not buy from this company

  41. I bought their product a while ago. I went to the bank to change the pin of my card . Because of my curiousity, aI inquired the balance of my card. I was very shocked seeing that Ive been charged more than $100. I feel like crying because that is the savings that I have this month. I was led to believe that they would charge me the $87.30 for the second bottle next month but what happened was they charged my card without even stating about that one before they billed me. I tried to email their “support” team since I cannot call their customer service hotline but what happened was that, even if I emailed them more than 10 times, they are not replying to me. They really betrayed my trust in them. They say they want to change the lives of peopple but then they changed it in a bad way. I do apologize if Im being like this. Its just that what they did was so hurtful. How can Slimfy broke my trust to them.

  42. Omg! Wish I would have seen this before I signed up:( they have took money out of my account and then told me that I will get the money back within a few days. They have taken out 3 payments and I haven’t even received the pills yet. I’m sick! Looks like the only thing I can do is close my bank account.

  43. I bought Slimfy some time ago but due to a recent strike at the customs office in my country, I just received it yesterday, the same day that I got an e-mail that say’s stage 3 is ready to be shipped. I sent them an e-mail explaining I was not ready for stage 3 as I had not started on stage 1 and I got an e-mail back that says all shipments have been cancelled until I reactivate my subscription. So far I can’t complain.

  44. Total rip off. Product seems like a placebo, it does nothing at all.
    Very difficult to cancel you just can’t get back all your money.

  45. Thanks for the sensible and comprehensive review of Slimfy.
    You have saved me from being tempted to try this product !

  46. Feel sorry for the people that didn’t read your reviews and got hoodwinked into buying . I don’t trust any one !
    Many Thanks to your research team .

  47. I signed up for free trial but they never asked me to enter any card details only shipment details will I b charged for the trial after 30day?

  48. I am charged for the 3rd bottle without ordering!!
    No auto billing as stated on your webpage and why am I charged after placing order just for 1st and 2nd bottle, which has ZERO effect! Please REFUND my US$87.30!

  49. This company is a scam. BEWARE! They will say you only pay for shipping but will end up charging your card the entire amount. I have no idea how they are still in business with an obvious high rate of chargebacks. They charged me $135.80 when I only authorized it for $6.87. When I called to cancel, this is the email I got back:
    ——————————————————————————
    Hello ——,

    after we spoke this morning i have adjusted your account to accommodate your concern and now you want to cancel completely, we offer you the introductory kit which includes the 30 day free supply and the stage 2 so you can continue in your journey, this was your misunderstanding because it is clear in our checkout page and in our agreements what payment will be authorized and what will be pre authorized. if you do not have the funds for this kit then the offers we have for you are no good.
    we are sorry to hear that you are unable for these funds and we are moving forward with your cancelation. good luck on your weight loss journey

    Sincerely,
    ~Carlos A.
    Slimfy Support Team
    ——————————————————————————-
    What a jerkoff way to address a customer.
    DO NOT BUY FROM THEM.

    1. i was scammed too ….. the moment i entered credit card # ….. All “first time” trial offers of $ 4 disappeared …… Multiple charge are deducted ( $16.29 + $87.30 ) …. Even the ICICI bank seems to be in cahoots with this company in this scam ….. Beware of these scammers …..many people have been scammed like this please google

  50. all i hear you people talk about is how you lost your money. is their any body who has tried it and found out whether it works or not. if it works whats wrong witj spend even1000 dollars for something that could change your life.

  51. I am victim of the Free trial.. And it’s true.. It’s not free after all.. At first i paid for shipping fee only.. Then when it arrived i paid again to the shipping company.. Then after a week i received email that i need to pay them $87. Its not good coz they should mention that to their site. They deceived me. Jobless and got broke because of slimfy. Need to pay for that tricked!

  52. Wish read this reviews earlier. I fell to the trap too. Just ordered the intro kit 3 hours ago, thought it only cost for $16.29 for the shipping.
    I received confirmation email from slimfy says that i will be charge $87.30 for the stage 2, which is due within 30 days after the shipment and will be process automatically unless i choose to pay the invoice earlier within 10 days after my order date and get addition $10.00 discount.
    When i read this watchdog reviews immediately i called my bank to check my transaction, and it’s true, there is 2 transactions appeared in my bank statement, $16.29 and $87.30 . They charged me straight away within 3 hours instead of 30 days they said, for the stages 2 that i never ordered.
    Fraud company.

  53. still no product and no replies to emails even though i was told a replacement was going to be sent since they had supposedly sent product already…so they have my money I have nothing and no response to emails, is this classed as stealing….such a scam, don’t fall for this one.

  54. I already purchased the introductory kit 2 days ago. It was really misleading. I really thought that I will just pay 16 dollars for the shipping fee because they said you can claim the introductory kit for free. They did not state that they are going to send you and charge you 87 dollars for the stage 2 program.. All I expected that I will just receive the stage 1 program. I regret that I haven’t read this article. What a waste of money. After reading this, I hurriedly emailed them to cancel the purchase of stage 3 program and any of the stage program supplements from now on. Fortunately, they replied to my email and cancelled the purchase of stage 3 program. Here is the email.

  55. yeah I got taken too shame on me now i have to cancel my credit/debit card to stop future billings! people Slimfy is bad news.

  56. Just saved my hard earned money in time. Thanks for all the review. Had almost filled credit card details. Thank you so much

    1. Oh I just skipt of the scams thy got me but thanks to my bank for refunding my money I will never ever do that again guys xx?

  57. No product received, refuse to give refund unless I return product which I can’t since I don’t have it. But customer will resend product so I can return for full refund. It has now been one month no product, no refund and no replies to emails…this is a scam

    1. Now they tell me no refund allowed on product being sent as this product is replacement…thieving scam if ever I found one

  58. Yeah… i shouldve seen seen this priornto claiming the free trial and ended up as stated above….gotnan email stating ill be billed in 30days time….wth!?!? I didnt sign upnfor that…oh well, carma strikes back 100x….. 1st bottle just gave me breakout on the face and i actually dont think it really had a “slimfying” effect…. so double check supplements claims first especially if the dealnis too good to be true

  59. thank you so much for “Watchdog” and all the reviews. You just saved me a lot of money. One always read about falling in these traps, and think ….this will never happen to me…but boy they sound so convincing.. Thank you thank you!

  60. this is a scam , please do not give ur credit card info to them as it does not work and they keep charging to your account again and again ..please do not fall for the scam.

  61. its a total scam i did the entire 3 stage course but not working they are cheating people don’t fall for it

  62. Too bad i signed for the free trial a month ago and received bottles 1 and 2. Payed for the shipping wc im supposed to, but today i received another bottle after a month paying for that wc was charged to my credit card for something i did not order and i have to pay for the shipping..i woudnt mind paying for another bottle of slimfy if i asked for it but i did not. Now ihaveto close my credit card to be sure that im not gonna be charged again. I feel cheated!!!

  63. I am from India and i normally don’t buy anything before i check all reviews. I was online yesterday for 1 hour trying to find some reviews that mentioned it was a scam etc. But couldn’t find one, all i read was good reviews.

    So i went ahead and ordered Slimfy. Their trial pack looked fishy with the 87 dollar deposit mentioned, so i avoided it and went for direct billing and ordered their 2 + 1 pack which cost me 176 $. I used my debit card and it was charged instantly. I also got an email confirmation and i was happy. After a while still fishing for reviews i happened to stumble upon watchdog and you can imagine my state. I was panicking after reading all the reviews.

    And regret instantly clouded me. I realized i had made a mistake and decided to cancel the order. It was 12 am here and i was already exhausted with the stress so i decided to hit the bed. But i thought i would atleast send them an email and then hope for the best.

    I sent them an email mentioning to them that i wanted to cancel the order before i hit the bed.

    You have to read what happened next ……………..

    When i woke up in the morning i found an email from Allie (support staff of Slimfy ). She mentioned that she had pulled up my order and voided it and that my refund would be provided to me withing 2 to 3 business days.

    And the best part is yet to come….. I also get an sms from my bank stating the amount of 176 $ has been reversed.

    This was something i wasn’t expecting. Definitely not after all the reviews and specially because i was all the way back in India.

    I was very relieved but at the same time i was wondering about what if their product really worked. I guess i will never find out.

    I am not sure if this was a scam, cause if it really was, i wouldn’t have had my entire money refunded. Not a cent was deducted.

    They could have easily cheated me if they wanted to as i was far away in India and there was nothing i could do.

    I found Slimfy extremely professional. I didnt have to go through a sweat to get my money back.

    But my advice would be that check things for yourself before you make a conclusion. And yes, be very careful while buying anything online.

  64. Thank you Diet pill Watchdog

    You have saved my money & spared me a great deal of disappointment as I was about to purchase Slimfy all the way from South Africa.

    Amen

  65. OMG, I just fell to this trap. I ordered their free 30-day trial which is USD16.29 as per their ad , but was so surprised they charged me extra USD 87.30 and their ad was so misleading. So I emailed them right away after learning it, to get clarification of what they have charged me. They replied to my email and in fact I also got a call from them. I still couldn’t understand their terms though, it’s really confusing. So I checked DHL today, and I am gonna get the shipment today itself.

    After reading this article, I sent them an email right away not to send me the stage 3, I planned to cancel my card too.

    Thanks for this site.

  66. Was jus abt to place da order. Frm da payment screen jus opened new tab n tot of surfing n check da net if its a scam o so. N came across watchdog. Closed da slimfy tab rite away. Allhumdulillah saved money. Thnx watchdog. Now i hav a question for Watchdog can j suggest me a nice fat burner to loose weight which i can buy in Doha Qatar. Or safe online order. Waitin for your reply. U al can also mail me for this n reply. Thnx

  67. oh my. I actually fell for this!!! just asked for the free trial, but I am in Uganda, so yah! conversion charges were on top of the roof on this one!
    just sent them an email asking them to cancel my future orders! I do not want to receive this again.
    hopefully they will reply soon.

  68. Hi. I fell for it to 🙁 but this mistake cost me about 320 €. i kind of hoped they would stop sending me stuff after the 3rd stae+ge but i just got the 1 stage AGAIN today. My problem is, i’m from Europe and i dont know how i can cancel this now. Can anyone help? 🙁

  69. Thank you for the warning, I am from South Africa, the cost would have been x 10. I almost gave my card details but decided to read some more before signing up.

  70. I’m so glad I clicked on the link to your article – literally seconds before I was about so sign up for the “free trial” of Slimfy!!! What unethical business practice. I won’t buy this product purely on that principle, never mind the fact that the advertising is based on entirely unfounded claims & misleading info. Thanks for sharing this with potential consumers, without such vital detail being laid out so logically, more of us would make purchases like this that will leave us poorer in pocket & spirit & possibly even in worse health!
    PS. Is it legal for products to be sold without listing all ingredients???

  71. I read this review too late. Can’t believe i fell for the trap. My negligence cost me SGD $120! I emailed them requesting to cancel my order. But looking at how difficult it is to get a refund,i might as well just consume. i did cancel my card though. Just in case they try to deduct again.

  72. Unfortunately I was sucked in by their misleading website and charging schedules so was consequently charged more than I expected as I was under the impression I got a bottle free. The deal was option 2; buy two bottle and get the third free. I read the T’s and C’s which I have requested the company confirm they will not auto ship product as I did not opt for intro option. I am over seas so time differences mean they did not receive email until the following day but charged my credit card within seconds.

    I checked into the address provided which is a corporate office space which also provides virtual offices. I a conversation with the office building sales person who confirmed my queries. They do not have to be at this address, they could be working from a shed in a back yard. Address is not necessarily a ‘positive’, they may or may not be situated onsite.

    I have not heard back from the company yet, I suspect they have dispatched (or claim to have) the items, but I have requested a refund and my order be canceled. We’ll see how this goes??

  73. OMW. I am sitting in South Africa and i also ordered the introduction kit. The same day i ordered my bank phoned me and asked me if i am aware of the payment that was taken off my credit card. I simply said yes because i know i ordered the tablets. Within 2 days i received my supplies of stage 1 and stage 2. How do i cancel mine if they don’t even answer their phone? Shit i am really in trouble here. Hubby is going to have a fit!!!!!!!!

    1. Email them through their website. They have an enquiry section. I just did it. Just as a precaution, i cancelled my card before they can make any other deduction.

  74. not really 100% return policy
    as per the terms conditions, only un opened can be returned

    (REFUND ELIGIBILITY

    ? New Customer (household that has received the first shipment of Slimfy and have not ordered any Slimfy products in the past). Any original factory-sealed, unopened bottles that you have received from your original shipment can be returned to us within 90 days for a refund, minus shipping and handling costs, minus 25% re-stocking fee.)

  75. OMG It got me too! I just ordered the intro kit for USD 16,29 but when my bank notif me about 2 transactions includes USD 87,30 I email slimfy as soon as notif to cancel the order but i haven’t get any replies. I contact my bank and try to canceled those transactions, but they also need confirmation from slimfy to cancel the transaction even the txn still in pending. I hope slimfy support team reply my email so I can proceed the cancelation problem. Maybe after this I have to close my card so the auto bill would stop. This is my lessons to be learn indeed.

  76. I just ordered this and it’s on its way. I did the introductory kit. I was charged 87.30 to my debit card?! It says it’s still pending. I’ve read these reviews and I’m scared to death lol I don’t want this. Thank you all so much! Is there a way to get my money back since it’s still pending? Or is it hopeless?

    1. Send the item back. But you wont get the full amount back, unfortunately. That was what they stated in the terms and conditions

  77. OH Stupid company!!! it got me!!! i checked my credit card and at the moment i wanted to block my card, they had debited my acc 110dollars. i blocked it anyway…. however, as i leave very far away i can’t resend the product it will cost me double price… i will have to try and hope it will work :-(…. thanks for sharing

  78. OMG I was just about to buy this scam….thank God I decided to check it out via you guyz,…
    Just saved me lots of money….indeed no short cuts in shading off wt

  79. I fall into their trap – I bought for 6 months suppliments. i feel so stupid that after a few days, the bank notified me about the payment, only then i had the instinct to vanish my insecurity. luckily i came across this website.. instantaneously i called the bank to renew my card details though the first payment had been processed. lesson learned indeed. i’m afraid what are the side effects might costs to me if i take it but it’s also such a waste of money if i just flush it down the toilet.

  80. Oh crap i just ordered this and immeditly they took 80 € from me.. wtf. How can i stop this?? Is the bank account closing the only way to stop this ??! Help me pls.

    1. The best way is: change your credit card for an other one with different datas. I’m sure, your credit card company has a written form to ask for future negotiations to deduct money from your account.
      Good luck!

    2. I called my bank, there is the international shipment fee deducted from my bank immediately but not yet the charger of second stage of pills.
      Bank staff told me if Slimfy could prove that I use their service to the bank , they would be able to request my new card info and charge me.

  81. I went for the free trial paying £10 for shipping to the UK, the package arrived today and I was simply googling to do more reading about the product before taking it; luckily I came across this. I’ve cancelled my visa card. Thanks for the warning.

  82. All trickery! The ad says: Free trial, only pay postage. Then they send you Stage 1 WITH a Stage 2 for which you are automatically billed befóre you even have a chance to try out Stage 1 to see if it works for you. As it takes almost a month to receive products, outside of the US as I was in November and December, there is no time to return Stage 2 for a ‘refund’
    Also, in the adverts you are told, or it is implied, that these amazing ground-breaking 3 newly-discovered plants-that-aid-weightloss are in these Slimfy products now!! They never give you the ingredients-list, which differs from Stage to Stage, so you are left thinking that the next stage now súrely would have a strong dose of those newly discovered ‘magical weightloss plants’. But no!
    I studiously took Stage 1 as directed but as I already eat a wheat-free, dairy-free diet there was no weightloss within the first two weeks BUT a gain of 3 pounds. I left-off taking Stage 1 for a week to normalise my weight and then started on the Stage2 for which I had been billed by this time 🙁 After 2 days I was up 2lbs and that was when I started emailing for my money back. I had many email conversations with Veronica, back and forth – and by this time Stage 3 had been sent to my US address and billed for on my credit card. She refused any refund and refused to take back Stage3 even though it was obviously still unopened and still under the return-month-deadline.
    I got NO joy from interacting with this company.
    The products contain the same substances (as seen above in the main body of this Watchdog report) as are known commonly in the slimming world: green tea, green coffee etc. so nothing ‘ground-breaking’ and they don’t work!
    What dóes work, is cutting junk food from the diet, as they require you to do whilst using Slimfy, and cutting out wheat, dairy and sugar. I have 12kg to lose, and for me these Slimfy pills was a recipe for disaster, causing me weight gain, even though I was continuing my relatively healthy diet. Slimfy had nó effect to curb appetite or to enhance wellness, for me.

  83. Lol its funny,

    Was checking out some stupid video links and there i found an add “slimfy”
    Note- i am not overweight though a slight tyre around the belly 😀 so thought lets give it a try.
    Opened their website… Ammused by the free trial (ofcourse read all the positive reviews before the heads up for the order) anyhow filled up the details and credit card number and other details
    Just before clicking submit….
    It ticked my mind to check it out on watcheog about the product!!

    Now guess what lol very-fortunate to cancel out the s#it i was about to order.
    I dunno if the product would have worked fine as advertized but i have learnt theres no short path or trick way to achieve the goals

    Would advice all you to stick to your diet plan and exercise/walk/jog and headsup for 2015 weightloss conventionally 😉

    Cheers
    jan,1,2015(HAPPY NEW YEAR ) eh!

  84. Buyer be Ware…the first 87USD they take off with the free shipment is ment to be reversed to your account…depending on how fast your bank is…BS…it never came back…I emailed them and requested for confirmation of them refunding and they just took me round in circles…scripted talk as it were…today I get a notification of another 87 USD taken off my account…barely 26 days after the first free shipment of the first bottle! Wish I had read these reviews prior…

    Note to ALL…DO NOT buy from them – and if you do – cancel you card ASAP…

  85. I am on stage 2 for the 2nd time – have found that I have lost weight without dieting (as they claimed) – have had nothing but good contacts with Ivy from the company. I have had to call them each time I wanted the next phase AND they sent me a confirmation email with each single bottle order to ask me if it was okay to charge my credit card. This is not a scam – and it works. Gained a bit back on phase 3 – but it dropped right off when I went back to stage 1. I am considering a third round as I have felt very well on it – it has had an effect on my snacking and portion control. I am a vegan and all of their pills are vegan.

  86. Slimfy is fraud, I just wish I knew earlier. USD 119 was deducted from my account and the payment was confirmed. They sent me a mail calling me a fraud after they received the payment and they also sent a confirmation mail with transaction ID and all. Now they blocked me from making comment and sending message on their FB page. These are frauds.?

  87. I just received my ( free ) sample unfortunately I did not read this first.I’m cancelling my order & my credit card immediately ! This is the last time I order any ” free” offer . Thank’s for the heads up!

  88. Thank you sooooooo much!!! For all of you.
    I am from Egypt, I nearly was going to buy it and thank god I read this reviews… My sister card didn’t work for some reason and she just promised I will make sure I make the order soon. But thank god I read this so called her… So happy I didn’t buy it !!! I read positive reviews for the past month and I said finally I will lose weight

  89. I live in Australia and was very much interested in this product as read lots and lots reviews – so decided to give it a go and bought all 3 bottles… I was so confident after all this positive reviews. But what a scam, my disappointment with this product is endless. I’ve paid nearly $200 for just small 3 bottles. No results whatsoever, NIL, nothing, zilch… Neither my weight, no my cm. What a waste of time and especially my money. My advise to all – please do not believe all those reviews and pictures – nothing works except dieting and exercise. Good day!!!

  90. Crap. I just signed up today and cancelled as well today.
    But I haven’t got any reply.
    Can somebody help me to stop them to charge my account?
    Such a bad decision. ahhhh.
    Please help.

    1. Just signed today to and cancelled in the same day. And as I am from Indonesia I can’t call their line, so I just depended on email, and as expected I don’t get reply too. I just cancelled my credit card so they can’t bill me again. But it didn’t solve the first case.

    2. Cancel credit card as i had to do & apply for a new one. Only way to stop the thieving low lives !!!!!

  91. Thank you for your warning. I am from Germany and nearly bought slimfy. Do You know anything that helps to loose weight? I tried so Many ways and things And Nothing helles so far. I am desperate TO lose Weight. Please, please help. Thank you

    1. I easily lost weight twice on Jenny Craig. It can be pricey but you can pick & choose the meals you want so can opt for the less expensive ones. If you can pick up your food from one of their locations you’ll also save shipping charges. It’s basically portion control and consuming small meals or snacks every two to three hours. You have to supplement the meals with fresh vegetables. I found Brocolli was one of the better vegetables for weight loss. I was never “starving” between meals and never uncomfortably full. You can get creative with things like salad dressing. A good substitute for mayonnaise is to make your own using soft tofu and vinegar and/or spices. Avoiding salt and processed grains is also beneficial. If I had the funds, I would definitely go back on the program. I’ve tried imitating their program on my own but I’m not disciplined enough to adhere to the portion. When I was on the program I followed the plan religiously. My motivation was the money I had spent. It was a great motivator. My first go round was right after having knee surgery. I sat on my butt, doing nothing but knitting for four weeks, and still lost 2-3 pounds each week. That doesn’t sound like a lot but after 3 months that’s a total of 24-36 pounds. Good luck and, if you try their program, I’ll love to hear how you do.

    2. Gundi have you tried a low carb diet? I am doing HFLC but you can also do HPLC. Seems to be working for me I am slowly shrinking in size. Have a read of the diet doctor site. He has a free part and a paying part (I only use the free part as I find that is great). He doesn’t sell anything – he doesn’t promote any supplements. The only money I have spent on this diet is at the supermarket and I have also bought some vitamin D as my levels are low.

  92. Hello,
    I regret I have not read your overview and confirm your recommendations to disapprove are very true. Being overseas I only received my so-called free sample after nearly one month and paid 17 USD for shipping. Within 2 weeks after that I was charged a total amount of 87.30 USD, I wrote to them and they told me I could receive step 3 for free but I was only halfway step 1 and wanted to see how I would react to this before signing up for more. Eventually they agreed to put my “account on hold”. Step 1 was definitely not a success so I did not continue with step 2 and I wrote back to them. In reply, they said I was past the 90-day trial period as they shipped step 1 early July. They are absolutely not honest, like sooooo many things now on Internet. I am happy however that I found your website to post my comments and maybe more people will avoid paying a lot of money for something that does not work. Thanks for your help and continue the good work !
    Regards from Luxembourg – Europe

  93. I was also tricked by their Introductory Kit, so after reading watchdog I immediately contact my bank and blocked my credit card as this is the fastest way to stop their future billing. Same time, I sent an email to Christian from Slimfy regarding my request to stop all future billings and orders as when I tried to call the toll free no but to no avail.

    But in fairness, I loose half kilos in the detox phase and about 4 kilos in the stage 2 after 2 weeks of taking the pills. But then there’s no further losing of weight and Im in my second bottle of Stage 2. I am not sure if my wight loss is due to cutting of carbs (bread) at the same time I started the Slimfy products.

    At my detox phase (Stage 1), I experienced severe stomach cramps maybe 3 times but it stopped when i finished the pills, though heatburns continue sometimes till this time that i am taking stage 2, maybe because as it suppresses my appetite, my stomach is becoming more acidic.

    No other side effects aside from those mentioned above. I still drink my 2nd bottle of stage 2 and see what will happen next…

  94. Slimfy is a total scam. The pills don’t work and the people who work (particularly one nasty piece of work named Ivy) are absolutely not interested in customer satisfaction. I found out only after the fact that the tiny writing said that while the first two bottles were free, they would automatically send me the third bottle and charge my $87 for it. Well, I sent it back to them and they refused to refund the money, saying it was past the 90-day period. When I saw the ad about FREE samples (pay only the postage!!) there was nothing to lead me to expect they would bill me and send me a bottle of pills that are useless. Crappy company, crappy product.

  95. Wish I come to this Watchdog review about Slimfy before I stupidly sign up the trial. I was charged on the 2nd month for USD 87.30. After some email and talking to my bank, they gave me back 50% for express refund. Stage 1 did not work for me as I gotten quite sick after using the product for about 8 days. Next time before I purchase anything I should try to find out more from watchdog first. Lesson learned 🙁

  96. More and more people know about their scam now. We have email to almost everybody we know in Singapore about their scam.

  97. i too signed up and as soon as i saw the charge each month cancelled by phone i have an email confirming this but they have still taken the money from my account trying to explain that i cancelled is like banging your head against a wall

  98. If you haven’t used the stage 2 or 3 call them and tell them you want to return.they just emailed me a return form for reimbursement .

  99. Wow!!!! Slimy billed my credit card $87.30 off a trail that was free (all they said I had to pay was $4.99. I called 855-575-4639 and spoke with rep who insisted I authorized the $87.30 charge. After disputing with her she transferred me to Christian Matthews. He said when I signed up for the free trail they automatically sent me stage 2 which is $87.30. I stated to him that is not what I authorized. BE AWARE OF THIS COMPANY. I stated to both that I don’t want any further charges and I want my money back. They are suppose to send me instructions for sending the stage 2 back to receive a refund. LESSON LEARNED …,,,,DONT BUY ANYTHING OFF TV.

  100. It seems they will ignore your email and keep billing you, fortunately, my bank was smart enough to block this merchant from charging.

  101. I am currently on the phone calling overseas to the US…have been waiting for over 10 minutes but no one’s been answering the call. And oh, about the product’s effectivity, did nothing to me. I walked 3 times a week for 30 mins and ate right. But I didnt really lose weight.

    1. Hi Amy, the same thing happened to me. I was charged this morning for the 3rd product which i never signed up for. I was also trying to contact them now but no one’s picking up.

      Were you able to contact them already?

    2. I was able to get a hold of someone. In fairness, the operator was polite and helpful. But obviously, she’s trained to deal with such complaints…so she said Im just seeing the smaller picture like there are others who didnt really have such problems… Nevertheless, there are those, like us, who’ve had a bad experience so they should really change the way they are advertising the intro kit…. Anyway, the first 87usd is money down the drain…. Then she offered to give me an express refund of 50% which is waiting for approval. I’d be so pissed if they dont at least give me that. And she has also cancelled future orders so I wont be billed anymore. I used the local number above to contact them. Good luck!

    3. I was already able to talk to an operator, too! His name is Christian Matthews. I really insisted that he send an email on cancellation of future orders. And he did. Actually, I was more worried about the future orders. But i still advised my bank to monitor the merchant for any future charges. Lesson learned the hard way, indeed!

    4. Dear Mary

      Do you have Christian Matthews email ? I want to make sure I cancel my order.

      Thank you

    5. Stay on line. Someone will eventually answer. It took a while for them to answer me too. I am so pissed!

  102. Unfortunately, I fell for this… i mean, to begin with, it was really misleading. Sign up was easy and they made it appear like the Intro Kit consists of Stages 1 and 2 for only 16USD. I was surprised to hear from them today that they have shipped Stage 3 which I clearly did not order but at the same time i didnt know about auto-ship. And also today, I got my credit card bill and saw that they have billed me 87usd…and here’s the worst part, I actually ordered two intro kits before (one each for me and my bro). Imagine that! I hate that I fell into the trap!

    1. They got me too. I was able to speak with a rep and Christian Matthews. I want my money back. I didn’t ask for stage 2 nor for my account to be charged $87.30.

    2. I got the introductory kit, and received stage 2 and 3. They refuse to issue an RMA for my unopened products, and to refund us. The 90 days money back guarantee must start when you first contact them not when they bill and ship. I didn’t ask for any of the additional stages either, Tamika, – how did you get your refund?

    1. Hey there. Too bad, I just signed up wd simplify a few days ago before I came across this site. And Im surprised too of the additional amount of 87.30 USD aside from the introductory kit price of 16.29 USD. I cancelled my card right away as soon as Ive read their autobilling policy. Thanks watchdog for saving me from their future billing.

    2. Me too!! I just sign up and they chrged me more than 100 dollar. My bank acc are floating right now, should i cancel my card and will i get my money back??

    3. Yeah me too, im their website it hsow only shipping fee of 16.29USD but when I ccheck out I got a message from my bank for 2 different charges. 87usd and 16.29usd.. this is scam. I immediately call my bank and ask not to process my payment and block my card as well.

    4. Me too !!!! Bought the first & second stage & had to cancel my credit card as payments were continually coming out!! Not happy

  103. I got lucky…my bank would not process the payment! That’s when I decided to look at some of the reviews. I’m glad I didn’t get caught in this scam.

  104. I read this and noticed there are somethings that (watchdog) is not Stating properly so I just want to clarify. For any Straight buy like (Buy 2 get 1 free) or (Buy 3 get 3 free) there is no automatic billing its one payment and one shipment thats it!! The other thing is that Slimfy acknowledges its clients is not hiding anything and when applying for the Introductory Kit before you put in your card information we explain the Terms and Conditions this is not tucked away it is very clear put in front of you to read before you check out.

    1. Try option (available to our new customers):
    http://slimfy.com/offers/limited-offer-slimfy-deal/main/

    Get Stage-One (free) and Stage-Two (both will last you 60 days), pay only for shipping now. If you like the product and would like to continue losing weight with Slimfy, pay for Stage-Two $87.30 in 30 days and have your next shipment Stage-Three ($87.30) sent to you in another 30 days. Of course, you can postpone, change, reschedule or cancel the shipment at any time. The total for all three stages comes to $174.60 spread this way: 1st month – authorization only and shipment of Stage-One and Stage-Two, 2nd month – payment of $87.30, 3rd month – shipment of Stage-Three and payment of $87.30.

    1. I’m sorry to say but you do trick people.. the advert I ordered from said it was a free trail for 20 dollars I got charged 100 dollars a week after my order when the second payment should have gone through 30 days after order so they didn’t even give me a chance to cancel when I realized it was a scam SHAME ON YOU

  105. This crap is just like that other brand with green tea & coffee bean pills that I purchased from a different co. and are sitting in my cabinets. Unfortunately all worthless….

  106. Oh my gosh I am so glad I read your website. I was getting ready to order the slimfy buy 3 get 3 free. I read the term and conditions and you are right they do not explain you will be billed again for a new supply in 150 days. It makes you think auto billing only occurs with the free trial offer. Thank you so much for sharing this info.
