Is Garcinia Torch a scam?

Is Garcinia Torch a scam?

Garcinia Torch is another supplement available for trial that seems to be making a name for itself.

Unfortunately, it is not a good name, as the complaints surrounding its hidden charges are starting to mount up.

In this review we will look at Garcinia Torch in more detail to see if there are any redeeming features.

Claimed benefits of Garcinia Torch

Garcinia Torch has made the following claims regarding its benefits on its website:

  • Appetite suppressant
  • Manages cortisol for stress relief
  • Increases serotonin, for emotional eating

These 3 benefits alone are a good selling point as these are often reason why people struggle to lose weight.

If it can offer these benefits then I can certainly see Garcinia Torch being a good supplement. We would first need to look at its ingredients though to see how accurate these claims are.

Ingredients found in Garcinia Torch

While it is not immediately clear how much Garcinia Cambogia is present in Garcinia Torch, after a little searching I found a link to its label at the very bottom of their website.

This label indicated that Garcinia Torch contains 65% HCA and 1,000 mg of Garcinia Cambogia per capsule, which is a good amount that should certainly help with your weight loss efforts.

The label also indicates that this supplement contains Chromium, Calcium and Potassium too.

What did concern me was the spelling mistakes on both the label and website, which does put a few doubts in my mind.

Cost of Garcinia Torch

The biggest issue with Garcinia Torch and the source of its many complaints is its cost, which is probably going to come as a surprise to those who thought they were getting a good offer.

While there is only a $4.95 charge to pay when you first sign up for the offer, this only covers a period of 18 days.

If you do not cancel the trial within that timeframe then you will be charged $79.95, with further monthly charges too.

Thats right, Garcinia Torch operates an auto-ship program. So you will continue to receive the supplement and will be charged every month until your subscription is cancelled.

Is Garcinia Torch a scam?

Garcinia Torch is not a scam, but those who sign up without reading the terms and conditions are going to feel aggrieved when the payments start.

It is up to the customer to ensure they read all the necessary T&Cs before sign up. Unfortunately very few people do, otherwise there would be fewer complaints.

I would suggest that you avoid trial offers if possible, they are rarely that good an offer. There are various alternatives that you can buy outright without having to sign up for an auto-ship program.

Alternative to Garcinia Torch

Our suggested alternative to Garcinia Torch is a supplement sold online by Evolution Slimming.

Its name is Garcinia Pure, and it contains 60% HCA with 1,000 mg of Garcinia Cambogia per serving.

It is cheaper than Garcinia Torch at $60 for a months supply, and as it is not available for trial there is no risk of encountering any hidden or repeat charges.

  1. total scam! So many people have been scammed by this and their hidden charges. You call them, they are very arrogant, rude and not helpful what so ever. You write to their customer service and get a return reply saying they are out of the office (in the middle of a work day)… my suggestion to you is to call your credit card company and stop payments made, and future ones to them…and then call the BBB and file a complaint against them. I have gone back onto their website and do not see ANYWHERE that they talk about canceling within 18 days..how do you know in 18 days if it worked or not? (which it didn’t)….Total scam….I feel bad for all the people they have scammed..including myself

    • beware, when you get your free trail for just shipping they charge your credit card for another $80. Tell you it is only a 2 week trail and after that they charge you if you don’t call. To me, was’t worth the shipping price, I hate to see people ripped off. So beware!!!

    • I’m not sure who you called and talked to? But when I called asking questions about the company, the first thing I noticed (and liked) was the fact that I was never on hold. I called the number, and after a few rings, a customer service rep answered straight away. She was very helpful, courteous, and friendly. I was even given an extension on my free trial and a rebate saving 50% making it like $35 instead of $80 if I decide to keep the product. I guess you get back what you give

  5. You guys are idiots. A trial is not free. It is by definition a period of evaluation and at the end of the evaluation period something happens. NETFLIX, PROACTIVE, PANDORA, HBO GO, I could list 100’s of companies that offer trials of their products.. They don’t give their product or service away for free, forever. It’s a ‘try before you buy’ offer! A trial is a period to evaluate the product or service, which you eventually pay for if you don’t cancel your trial. Stop being morons and take responsibility for your actions, maybe pay attention before you place an order or better yet, why not call a company before you order. That would be too sensible. Instead, let’s take advantage of all the ‘FREE’ stuff out there on the internet, because we all know companies stay in business by giving away their product/service to everyone who will take it. Own your mistakes, stop blaming and bad mouthing other people.

  6. Total SCAM. I ordered the product on February 7th. Did not receive it until February 11th and started taking it on the 12th. I gave it 10 days but saw absolutely no results. They charged my credit card on the 22nd for $79.95.So, I called them on the 22nd but could not get through. I was on eternal hold. I then sent them an email on the 23rd. They responded saying that my order was cancelled. I asked for a refund but was told that the charge was for my trial bottle (which was supposed to be free) and I did not cancel within the 14 day free trial period. I said I did not even receive the product until the 11th and was therefore within the 14 days. They said they start counting on the day it is shipped. So don’t fall for a free trial…there is always a catch.
