Is Slim Wise Ketone a scam?

Is Slim Wise Ketone a scam?

If you saw a website for a product that claims to help you “lose weight without exercise or diet” you would be tempted to sign up for the trial.

Well, this is just one of the many claims being made by Slim Wise Ketone, but can you believe the hype?

Lets look at this supplement in more details to see if they can back up their claims.

Claims made by Slim Wise Ketone

According to their website Slim Wise Ketone has been “voted #1 fat burning product in UK”, which is quite a claim. It also makes the following claims:

  • Block carbs
  • Boost your metabolism
  • Stop feeling hungry
  • Burn stored fat

We would need to look at the ingredients found in this supplement before we can verify the claims made.

Ingredients found in Slim Wise Ketone

Unfortunately the first issue you will discover with Slim Wise Ketone is a lack of ingredient information.

While they have stated that its ingredients are Raspberry Ketone, Garcinia Cambogia, Citrus Aurantium, Green Coffee Bean, Guarana and White Kidney Bean, there is not one mention of the dosages of these ingredients.

This makes it impossible to gauge not only how effective this supplement is, but also whether it is effective at all.

Cost of Slim Wise Ketone

Like so many other supplement being offered by trial the cost of Slim Wise Ketone is not immediately clear.

In fact you will need to read the terms and conditions to find this important information.

What you will find in the T&Cs may shock you as although the initial payment is small this quickly increase up to £87 once the 14 day trial ends.

To make matters worse, signing up to this trial also means that you have signed up for an auto ship program. Therefore giving permission for the manufacturers to send further monthly packages while charging you over the odds for the privilege.

Is Slim Wise Ketone a scam?

Slim Wise Ketone have been very clever hiding their payment terms in the T&Cs. This will no doubt lead to complaints that this trial offer is a scam.

Regardless I would find it hard to recommend due to the lack of ingredient information, which makes me doubt that any weight loss benefits will be experienced.

Contact details for Slim Wise Ketone

Again, the contact details for Slim Wise Ketone is not easily located. However I have found them hidden away in the terms and conditions.

Email: support@tryslimwise.com or cancellations@tryslimwise.com

If you have been caught out by this trial offer then we would love to hear from you. Please leave a message below.

Alternative to Slim Wise Ketone

To avoid the hidden charges associated with trial offers I suggest that you give them a wide berth.

You should instead look at supplements available to buy outright such as Raspberry Ketone Plus (available to buy online from Evolution Slimming), as you will know exactly how much it is going to cost you before you hand over your payment details.

This particular supplement will cost just £19.95, which is much more affordable and will certainly help you reach your weight loss goals that much faster as it contains many different proven weight loss ingredients.

          • I am so upset I seem to falling for the oldest trick in the book then they just stole £157 pounds I had no other money left I rang the bank within 20 minutes they said there was nothing they could do because I give them the card details to take £8 shipping fee out of my account they say they will do something later when I money moves but a week gone I still have no money can not believe I was so stupid all I say to the world don’t go near them don’t have anything to do with this company they say they are proud of there goods but if you were proud why would you hide the full price if it had been up I couldn’t afford the items now I am in a nightmare

        • i’ve had this problem, pending transaction of £99 waiting to come out of my account for this and i’ve never heard of the product or used any of their supplements!

          Tried contacting the company, constantly says all the operators are ‘busy’ the bleeps to leave a message.

          i am fuming! What can i do to get this money back?!

          Someone please help, i cant afford to be loosing out on this ‘company’ each month!!

        • I like many of you that have left comments on this website was deceived by the claims of the trial offer for Slim Wise products.

          While I do not know what can be done if your purchase was made some time ago, I thought I would leave this advice for anyone who is able to take immediate action on the day the transaction has been made.

          STEPS TO TAKE:

          1. Send an email to the company requesting a refund and to cancel the auto shipping program as suggested in the above video.

          2. Decide whether you would like to leave a message on the answerphone.

          Note: The recorded message suggests that you wait at least 72 hours for a reply.

          3. Contact your bank let them know that you expected to pay only £8.00 for p&p for products ordered and not the £157.00 deducted from your account and have not been able to cancel the order.

          Also, explain that attempts to contact the company have been unsuccessful due to the phone ringing off/going to an answerphone and that there are no clear contact details in your confirmation email.

          Note: Your bank will not be able to give you advice. This may be why some of you have been told that there is nothing they can do.

          When I first contacted my bank I was told the payment could not be stopped and that I needed to get in touch with the company concerned.

          However, not being able to get through to anyone at Slim Wise I approached my bank a second time. Thankfully I was dealt with very patiently and sympathetically this time around.

          I let the advisor I spoke to know that I had attempted to contact Slim Wise to cancel the order to no avail and asked if there is a fraud team I could be referred on to or any other course of action I could take.

          I was told that this would not be considered a matter to be dealt with by the fraud team but that a visa dispute can be raised.

          HOW A VISA DISPUTE WORKS:

          1. The bank refunds the amount deducted from your account.

          2. When Slim Wise attempt to take the payment the bank will let them know that a Visa dispute has been raised in relation to the transaction.

          3. Slim Wise will have to produce proof that permission for the payment was given and that they have the legally required documentation.

          4. If after 7 days, if Slim Wise has produced the requested documents the payment will be released

          5. If the payment is not taken, the payment amount credited to your account by your bank will be retrieved by your bank.

          For those whose transaction took place more than a day/week ago, I suggest contacting the Citizens Advice Bureau, WHICH Consumer Rights or BBC Watchdog for further advice. Whatever you do act quickly!

          Sooner than later, I hope anyone that has suffered financial loss will be able to obtain a refund and exposure of this scam will lead to legal recourse that will protect future customers.

          Hope someone finds this message helpful.

          • I also have recently been falsely led as I thought I was just paying the £8 PP and I nearly died when I realized £157 had been taken out of my account I emailed them straight away to cancel my order but have heard or received nothing, It’s an absolute disgrace.

      • They did the same to me but took £316 out of my account when they said it was a free trial l am trying to get in touch with them but the number I have keeps saying that you have wrong number or this phone is switched off

        Reply
        • I sent for the free trial but it never said that you would have to cancel anything if you didn’t want to carry on. I got the shock f my life when I found they had taken £318 pounds out of my account.
          Please tell me more as how you got your money back.
          Many Thanks Marie.

        • I have also been a victim to this so called “free” trial. I was only expecting to pay the shipping amount of £8 but they have taken two amounts of £157 out of my bank account this morning. There was nothing mentioned to the price before all details were entered, the telephone number just continually rings. The bank has blocked future payments but cannot return the money. I just hope and pray that they cancel the order and return the payments, as this is something that I cannot afford.

          I just hope that other people read all of these responses before they get sucked in too.

          • I have ordered this yesterday they said the same as you £8.00 but took out £157.00 twice. I feel totally sick, I have called the number 44-203-129-3643 and the message says that this number is not been allocated and not in service. Well off to the bank I go to stop any other payments.

          • I GOT MY MONEY BACK!! Same happened to me, £157 twice taken immediately from my account. I immediately emailed them to cancel the order but they only cancelled all “future orders” since this is actually a subscription so if you don’t cancel, they will keep sending the pills and taking your money. I sent them threatening emails that they have taken my money unlawfully against what it states in their T&Cs which is that they will only take money for the products if not returned within 14 days. They sent me a return address where I have returned the pills recorded delivery (cost £12) and in a week I was refunded twice 157!!! I couldn’t believe it!!! DONT GIVE UP!!! Good luck!!

    • I’ve just started taking these, How long was it before you started seeing results? x

          • i have been scammed.On the 5/3/15 i ordered 2x containers of Slim-Wise tabs–60 per container. I received them on the 11/3/15.On the 20/3/15 i used my card to purchase other goods without success as my bank advised i was overdrawn. Bank advised an associated company of Slimwise called Cushing Diets had taken £158-00 from my account .This transaction occurred —-without any conversation with me to obtain permission and advise what it was for.I have since discussed this with my Bank who advised me to return the goods within 30 days by Recorded Delivery and they will try to get my money retuned to my account. Telephoning my supplier in the Netherlands i obtained an answer phone message saying they will not be returning to work until the 1/4/15. Has anyone else shared this experience please. T . D.

      Reply
    • Hi Sam, You will do! I got scammed about 8 months ago. I got my first batch about 10 days after I ordered at £4.95 each for postal cost. This was for both the Raspberry Ketone and cleanser tablets. I did not notice the first month that nearly £180.00 pounds had been taken out from my bank account (this was about 20 days after my first order). I then received in the post 6 days after I got the first item. Two more turned up. Another 10 days on and another two more parcels. I had sent the first two back because it was causing me an up set tummy and did Email the company to let them know I had sent them back. Then I went to pay for something on my card and it said I had no funds available. Speaking to my bank they had taken another £180.00. So £360.00 altogether. I stopped all payment to them immediately.. I had to go through this long process with the fraud department and sign some forms with them. When speaking to Lloyds they new exactly whom I was talking about and the woman said they have had other complaints about this company. But finally 4 months on I did get all my monies back but not for the postage.
      All I am saying is watch your bank account closely.

      • Who do i contact to cancel any orders and would you possibly have a phone number to ring? I have just contacted the fraud department at Santander who have put a block on the company taking any more money out of my account and they are sending me a form to fill in but it looks like i have lost £157 instead of £4.99 postage. These people are despicable.

    • Jolie, this website simply reviews products such as Slim Wise Ketone. We certainly do not sell or endorse this product so cannot refund your money as it is not use who have taken it.

      Reply
    • Jolie go to your bank and explain the situation and the bank may be able to refund you as i had a similar problem with another company that did this to me and the bank told me if i had not consented the company to take the money that they would refund me of which they did and the recouperated the money from the company that had taken it in the first place.

    • Go to your bank Rennz tell them that you ordered what you thought was a free trial and they have taken money from you that you didn’t authorise. Ask them to put a block on them taking anymore and once they have done that they have to refund you in 24 hours if they do. I don’t think they will be able to get back the £150 but at least you can put a stop to anymore being taken..it’s awful what they do and yet it’s not a scam as they say it’s in terms and conditions which nobody reads they are far too long 🙁 I will never buy anything like that online again x

      Reply
  9. PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE BUYING!!

    Unfortunately I did not read comments before buying, but similarly to those comments £150 was deducted from my account for what was called a ‘free trial’!

    It is disgusting and is a complete scam! That is a ridiculous amount of money and even if it is in the terms, it must be small because I read it and did not see it. It should be obvious so people know, not a shock when it happens!

    Do not do a free trial, or purchase this product!

    I am fighting for a refund now and the product sent to me has not been opened. I hope to win!

  10. I ordered my free trial of these tablets, which didn’t turn up with in 10 days. Checking my on line bank account to find that the company took £154.00 of my money which I haven’t concent to. The bank said ring the company concerned. Paper work I have don’t have a telephone number so I have emailed them, I will be back onto the bank tomorrow.
    It’s wrong how they just take a large amount out of your account with out permission.

  11. Absolute con. Just checked credit card statement and £67 and £87 have been deducted for this “free trial” this on top of 2 x £2.49 for postage. Thought there was something funny when the tablets arrived with no invoice or any forms to order additional supplies. Whether the tablets work or not doesn’t matter THIS IS A SCAM.

    Reply
  15. This is the reply I got when I emailed them

    Thank you for the request to cancel your subscriptions to the SlimWise Ketone and the SlimWise Cleanse auto ship programs; this has now been done for you.

    The bottles were sent to you as part of the auto-ship program you signed up for when you bought the SlimWise Ketone capsules and the SlimWise Cleanse Trials. The terms for these offers were clearly displayed on the order pages and you were required to tick a box to say you had read and agreed to them. These terms state:
    By placing your order today you’ll be shipped a 30 day supply of SlimWise Ketone (you just pay S&H). If you feel SlimWise Ketone is not for you, cancel within 14 days from the day you first ordered to avoid the purchase fees of £87 and £67 and enrollment in the auto-shipment programs, which send you a bottle of SlimWise Ketone and SlimWise Cleanse every 30 days starting 30 days after your trial period starts. By ordering you agree to the full terms and conditions shown at the time of ordering an on the leaflet received with the order. To cancel any time call 212-203-4855.
    You may return the last shipments sent to you for a refund of £87.00 (we do not refund our shipping charges) for the SlimWise Ketone, and £67.00 for the SlimWise Cleanse. We must receive them back within 30 days of them being sent to you. We give you 30 days but are unable to offer refunds on products not returned within this time.
    We do appreciate that it’s not always convenient to get to a post office and we are therefore willing to offer you 50% off the cost of these orders. This means you can keep this latest order of SlimWise Ketone and just pay £43.50 instead of the normal £87.00, and the order of SlimWise Cleanse just pay £33.50 instead of the normal £67.00.
    If you would like to accept this 50% off and keep your latest order to continue your weight loss program, please respond back by email within 30 days of shipment date to confirm you would like 50% off. Please allow 7 -10 days after receipt for us to process and issue your refund.

    Also, please include full name and postal address inside the package.

    The Return address is:

    SlimWise Ketone
    Postbus 6176,

  17. I to have been a victim of this scam, completely taken in by the advert saying 30 day free trial, my husband said at the time you get nothing free in this world….. The initial payment of £2=49 x 2 was withdrawn from my account, I had only received the tablets 8 days when £154 pounds was withdrawn from my account, It is very distressing to know that there are people out there with no morals who prey on vulnerable people…. I have not taken the tablets either cos I don’t trust that the product is genuine…. I have not been reimbursed but my bank have now put a bock on my account

  18. Hi,
    Like everyone here I fell for this scam too. I couldn’t even get a ring tone but now have a working number. It’s only an automated line I think but they do say they will be in touch in 72 hours. If they don’t then you can go back to your banks and or Trading Standards. Good luck 02031293643

  19. Embarrassed to say I have just been scammed by these people. They have taken a total of £241 pounds in total for two lots of tablets. The second lot arrived today which prompted me to look at why they had been sent. Obviously not checked any small print(dozy tart that I am) but they will get no more. Contacted my bank who have kindly refunded the money and they will recover direct from the company. Urge everyone to do the same. Good luck,hope this post helps. Bank had to cancel my card to prevent further withdrawals,so they will send me a new card out. A small price to pay.

  20. I also fell for it, but truth be told, the product works. It’s helped me lose 10lbs in 2wks which is not bad. My only issue is the price, i mean there’s got to be something that works like that and certainly not as expensive. Also, going into someone’s account to take about £134 monthly without them knowing before hand is just ridiculous.

    I read this site today an quickly called Barclays, money already gone out;( 140 pounds lighter rather than weight loss.

    I’m sure we won’t get it back so please if u haven’t yet been charged an ur reading this canx ur card or block at your bank ASAP.

They arrived after about a week and I cant say I’ve noticed any dramatic change in the past two weeks (apart to my Bank balance). To my horror when I looked in my Account earlier today I immediately realised the balance was considerably lower than it should be. After looking at my transactions I found TWO withdrawals in the amount of £67 and £87 to Natural Cleanse Plus and Short Weight Loss Products. I thoroughly read the ‘small print’ prior to signing for this FREE TRIAL and there was no mention of these huge payments being taken. I am a disabled lady living on a Disability pension and this £154 was money to pay bills and food for the month. These scumbags are vile.

  31. I have also fell pray to this scam.Ordered what I thought was a free trial on 6th January and they had taken out £241 from account within 3 weeks. Terms and conditions say they should inform you which they did not. Contact details and email under terms of conditions are not written correctly. Also with the free trial they send out leaflet askimg you to tick you have read terms etc which I did not complete or send bank. I am in process of having this investigated by fraud dept.

  32. PEOPLE Check your statement CAREFULLY

    I just checked my statement, they took £87 then £67 earlier in the month, Which I was disappointed with

    But toward the end the month they took a further £87 and £67.

    That’s a total of £308,

    Although I’m not losing weight fast time my bank balance is tho

    • I cannot believe Im reading this you are a con mans dream…instead of stopping your card with the bank youve waited until they have taken all this money out…you might have problems with your bank refunding all of your money as they might come to the same conclusion as me…its like having your pocket picked and then still keep standing by the same pickpocket sorry but DUMB!

  33. The pictures they are using and the stories are not true. One of the women on their ads is a friend of mine and they got into her blog and used her photos to sell their product. I can’t imagine what is in the pills they are sending people. I hope someone can stop them. The information they share about her never happened.

  41. I just checked my bank account and saw the unauthorised fee of £87. I didn’t see any terms and conditions regarding subscription when I paid for the postage on the “FREE” trial. I have tried a few numbers to contact this company to no avail. I have contacted the bank and blocked them taking more money from me. They took the £87 on the 28th and I never received anything (not that I wanted it anyway because I was not subscribed)
    I have been advised to contact the trading standards authority.

I DID read the ts & cs before sending for the free trial, and I DID e-mail the company within the time limit in ts&cs, but I still got charged. “Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me”! Older does not necessarrily mean wiser!

  44. Hi All,

    I ordered as well last Wednesday, 4th feb, received them today and was concerned that there was no invoice or paperwork with them, so googled about it and found this very helpful website. I have emailed bothe the addresses listed above to cancel, ad as its within the 14days should not have any further charges, but to be on the safe side have cancelled my card and will be talking to the bank tomorrow. I know I didn’t give any information over to set up standing order or direct debit so at least I know I won’t have to deal with that.

    In relation to the Holland and Barrett raspberry ketones, I have found them helpful as I seem to have more energy but haven’t really seen any significant weight loss with them.

  45. I fell for this as well and ive been to my bank to cancel the money coming out but just seen that 9 days after the 1st payment came out another 2 have been removed from my account under a slightly different name and still i have not received any tablets , ive emailed the company and rang them to stop it but looks like it didnt work , the bank assured me that i didnt have to change my card but it looks like you have too or you will get shafted time and time again , wont fall for anything like this again , what a fool

  49. I have also been scammed by SlimWise, charges of £2.99 x 2 have been taken out from my account, and I am receipt of the supplements. I didn’t do my usual research – stupidly! Until afterwards, when it was too late! I have contacted them by email and this is the response I got and I have also contacted my bank to get any charges cancelled and I have been assured that any charges will be refunded to my account, even if they use a different name. My bank had already been contacted by a number of other customers so were very accommodating, thankfully! The price for the supplements are exceedingly high…DO NOT SIGN UP FOR THE TRIAL!
    EMAIL FROM SLIMWISE:
    Please note you are still required to pay for the products you have received after your 14 day trial period. The offer you have signed up for is to try Diet Ultima and Cleanse Ultima for 14 days before you pay. These are not free or a 30 day trial, it does not say this on our website.
    If you do not wish to pay for the products you have received after your 14 day trial period, you must return at least half of the contents to us within 30 days of ordering. This is all in accordance with the terms and conditions on our order pages.
    We do however appreciate it’s not always easy to get to a post office and that some people sign up to our offers without actually reading the terms.
    We are therefore willing to offer you a 50% discount on the products you have received, meaning you will pay just £43.50 for the month’s supply of SlimWise Ketone, and £33.50 for the month’s supply of SlimWise Cleanse .
    If you would like to accept this 50% off and keep your latest order to continue your weight loss program, please respond back by email within 21 days of shipment date to confirm you would like 50% off.

    If you would still like to return your order and not pay for it at all, please send it back to the address below and write the RMA number on the outside of the envelope. Please note payment will automatically be taken on day 14 but this will be refunded if you return it between days 14 and 21 days. If you return the product after 21 days, we are not able to offer you a refund or ship the product back to you.
    END OF EMAIL FROM SLIMWISE

    I am going to go to the post office to see how much it will cost to send the remaining supplements back, but if too expensive i may not send them back at all. But I’m afraid I will get chase by SlimWise to pay for the supplements even though I thought it was like many others a FREE TRIAL! The thing is I have also believed nothing in this world is FREE, why I thought on this occasion it would be different I do not know. I will never do this again. I will buy from Holland & Barratt in future. Hope this helps others!

  54. I ordered these and received them within 10 working days … It never fails to amaze me how many people actually give out bank details to unknown web sites …. i use PRE PAID cards for any purchases like this. That way they can ONLY take what I allow them to …. only way to order on the internet as there are so many scams around … yes it does cost an extra €3.50 to top it up but in the long run it would be cheaper.

    NOW TO SEE IF THEY WORK !!!!

  55. I ordered both products last night.My mistake.they show shipping 2.49 pounds+ 2.49 for the second-Slim wise cleanse-all together less than 5 pounds.But when i continued to order,their charge was shown 4 pounds each bottle.-2 bottles of each.They didn`t ask me:Do i want 2 bottles.Anywhere I`ve ordered,so 16 pounds are withdrowed from my debit card.There is no option to unsubscribe.I sent them e-mais last night{24/02/15) ant this morning,tried to call them,no answer,just the automatically line speaker said on broken English that all the line are busy at the moment,live your phone number and e-mail and we will response within 72 hours.Can you imagine what the customer service is that.No response to my e-mails as well. I went to my bank and blocked any money to go out for this Company-Her Life and Health,about Slim Wise.Hope I`ve lost 16 pounds only!

I feel sorry for so many people now course it’s a big scam. never ever again !!!!

  57. I too was sucked in by the ads and jargon used about the product and the fact of a free trial, not for me, but for a friend. I made the order yesterday for her but then haven’t slept knowing something didn’t feel right. I couldn’t bare being responsible for her loosing money so done some further research and seen this site. I have emailed them straight away for a cancellation request BEFORE any product should be shipped and have informed my friend of this also and requested that she get her bank card changed immediately before any money is taken. So hopefully we have caught this in time. I’m currently waiting for a response from the company, but since I have made the order and cancelled it within 24hrs, would you think that she will be ok?? I had an email asking me to confirm on some link but have not done so, so I am assuming they don’t really have a leg to stand on do they? But I also cannot remember ticking any T&C’s box or seeing ANYWHERE on their site stating anything regarding the price paid or any auto shipping program. All a con that is through no fault of our own I suppose, but it is definitely a lesson learnt, I just hope I have stopped this in time!!

  59. I ordered the ‘Free Trial Offer’ of Slim wise recently, just paying the Postage costs of £4.98 for the Ketone and Cleanse. When I completed the order I did not see any Terms and Conditions, so took it that I would not here from them unless I requested more of the product.

    How wrong could I be !! – Just by chance I was checking my bank statement ….only to find that they had helped themselves to £ 154.00 !! from my account – they have not sent me any more of the product, nor have they been in touch. I have e-mailed them, but they have not replied.

    I feel very annoyed and would certainly not of knowingly paid this amount for two bottles. I am going to pursue this matter to get my money back and warn others to beware. SCAM !!!

  60. I order for the free trail on the slimwise ketone and the slimwise cleanse of just paying post and packaging of 4 pound odd ovbs I should of done my research beforehand instead I did it straight after!!!! I sent 8 different emails asking to cancel my order as I just placed but heard no response so I contected my bank through secure message but they said they couldn’t do anything because nothing has come through yet but if there was unusual activity on my account then they would contact me! 5 days later I recived the product and contact slimwise on two different emails and contacted my bank through the phone and they said they can see slimwise and that I have to contact them through the phone witch the bank gave me two numbers for and if I didn’t hear off slimwise then I should contact my bank again! I rang both numbers and got a voice automated saying I should leave my name and email and that they will contact me through email within 72 hours so o have to wait 72 hours when I know I won’t get a response so that I can ring my bank again to tell them Ive not Hurd off them! I have borderline personatily disorder witch means I act on impulse at times and this is the 1st time I’ve ever done this and I am so ashamed and worried about it!!! 🙁 I have no money in my account till Thursday so I hope I get this sorted before they take money!

  61. I am trying to sort out this mess too on behalf of my girlfriend who called me last night worried she had made a mistake of ordering slimwise ketone and slimwise cleanse. She ordered them on Monday and received them yesterday so 3 days later.

    Hoping as this is well within the 14 day trial period this can be sorted.

    After spending hours going through their so called ‘terms and conditions’ I emailed 2 different email addresses to cancel and also phoned the number but as other have experienced its just a voicemail saying they will get back within 72 hours. I just told them to stop scamming people and if any money gets stolen from my account i will call the Police 🙂

    Went on csm123.com who apparently are an independent consumer website who deal with these sort of people and did a quick cancel. Got a screen saying that cancellation was successful and any pending payments would be cancelled. Hoping this is not any kind of scam too and that it really is cancelled.

    Girlfriend has cancelled her card too. They dont have her bank details so if they try and debit money out using a card number that no longer exist I assume they wont be able to do it?

    Going to send products back tomorrow recorded delivery and hope thats the end of it

  62. SCAM – I also disappointed that I fell for it! I have just returned from the bank. They said there is nothing they can do but stop any more payments. Its all legal apparently! even though all i gave permission was the not so free trial. The payments are taken under different names. I do not even know what i have paid for but they took out over £300 within 17 days. Obviously all operators are busy when you try to call them! Very upset that the bank could not help.
    There must be something than can be done!

  68. Yes It’s one of those quite clever “scams” that plays on the fact that (no one reads the small print)
    If they want to sell some pills for £87 (which is what I eventually paid).
    Then why dont they just say so, with out this free trial nonesence and having to cancell in so many days.
    If they did try to sell them for £87 very few people would buy in the first place & of course they
    know that.

  71. I ordered yesterday. contacted my bank today who said they cannot do anything as i did authorise the payment ans agree to the terms (small and hidden i know) so advised i need to show i have made attempts to contact the subscription which can be an email, ans if no response the bank will refund me based on that. The bank have also cancelled my card and issued a new one. The company only have our card details (not bank details for direct debits) so if u change card number etc they cannot take further payments as the details they have will be the blocked card. As i only paid yesterday im lucky as the £8 delivery has gone through but now the cards blocked they cannot take any further money from me.

  77. Hi I have recently just received an email from the company which came in at 3am this morning. I am so surprised anyone actually takes the time to read and reply to the emails just asking me for a copy of the receipt in which I sent the goods back so they can watch out for them arriving they should have them back with 5 – 7 working days. Credit card cancelled and new one ordered and Barclay Card have put the £16.00 back into my account also which is a bonus so this scam company will not be able to get any monies out off me at all. Dispute department within credit card company were amazing in helping me and also the fraud department they probably have 1000’s of people going through this scam company.

  78. This product is a total scam. DO NOT BUY IT. I stupidly went for it, thinking, the trial would be cool to try. they double charged me for the trial which I still haven’t received. Then charged me for the full version after I mailed them NUMEROUS times looking for receipt and confirmation that I DID NOT ORDER the full version.

    How are businesses like this able to keep going? they should be shut down.I don;t know what I was thinking but they have screwed me big time, and don’t even have the gall to respond.

    • I ordered the free trial – didn’t receive product was charged €11 on my credit card – sent 2 emails within the 14 days canceling any further payment from my credit card – my bank told me that they would put a hold on any payment and I needed to send them in my emails – was going on Hols for a week and told my bank I would send in emails on my return – the product arrived while I was away – when I came back received an email from Slimwise saying that I had to return the product within 14 days which had now passed – ph my bank they told me that €221 was taken out of my account – I felt physically sick – I never buy anything like this on line and never will again – they are immoral, disgusting people to do this – they are corrupt and they need to be stopped – if someone mugged me on the street and stole €221 from me I would contact the garda – why is no one doing something about this – I want to scream – THIS IS IMMORAL- THIS IS A SCAM – SHAME ON SLIMWISE – there must be something we can do – all ideas are welcome

      Hi Jen.I would like to advice you:If your bank can not help you,to recover your two payments,
      go ASAP to ANOTHER branch of your bank,ask them again and if not,tell them that you will
      close your Bank Accaunt with them NOW and just do it on the same visit.On this way you
      will not be charged anymore from Slim Wise. But first, call another bank to book appointment
      ASAP to open a new bank account. There is an exellent offer with Halifax Bank now,until 5 April
      only.So they give 125 pounds cash into your new account with them,if you close your active
      account anywhere in the UK, + 5 pounds monthly long,long time.The rest is their busines,
      Hope it is a good ,very good idea.Please,respond me

I have had my email from them saying my payments excepted and they gave dispatched my item. What do I do?? Please anyone what is there email address many thanks in return

    Reply
  82. I have already blocked my account within the time (I think) I checked my account and it doesn’t seem like anything was taken (thank god) but the question is, if I’m still in my trial period and I already cancelled, do I still have to return the product?

    Question…despite all this scam problems with the product…does it actually work?

    Reply
  83. I just bought these and didn’t realise that I had to pay £79 per bottle!! And they sent me 4!!! I need the return address immediately as I do not want to keep these bottles. I am panicking as I cannot afford this and didn’t realise the true price. It said free trial for 14 days and shipping was £4 per bottle… I cannot remember how long I have them now! Please someone help me quick! I dunno what to do!

    • Hi, I have just been looking at my statements and too have just seen they have just taken £158 out of my account on 3rd March. The companies email did not work and I dont trust the phone number as worried too that will get charged loads for phoning it. Plan to get in touch with my bank first thing in the morning. I so hope they can help me. I have been on maternity leave and just gone back to work this week. With 2 small children and a husban currently out of work I need all the money I can and dont take too kindly to people taking my money that i didnt agree to. I havent even tried the product yet. I paid £16 for the reduced price trial which I agreed too but didnt expect further money to be taken. First time I have ever had an issue buying something online! Not a happy lady!

  88. Hi, yes, it’s a scam!! They just take €320 from my account without my permission!

    Reply
  89. I got caught with their free trial, what a scam.
    However having then se the comments on this site instantly contacted my credit card company who paid the amount requested and then lodged a claim back against companies as more than one company name is involved. they charged £158 to my credit card , I paid nothing. Remember to always use a credit card for such payments the credit card act will then cover your payment, not so with a debit card.
    I contacted the companies by e-mail and told them that if they sent me a Stamped addressed label I would return the items however nothing was received.
    These items are being dispatched from the UK and so the Purchase of Goods Act 2000 applies, the seller is responsible for postal costs if for any reason you return the good
    See (Distance selling regulation) of the above act .
    I have heard nothing from them since, that was in January 2015

  90. hi I signed up for the free trial, there wasnt anything stating a subscription services or any other payments to be taken. It was £4 for p&p so after I entered my card details and paid I checked my bank and noticed £8 was taken So I initially thought it was my mistake maybe £4 p&p per bottle. That same evening I checked my bank again and there was £80 missing. I immediately rang my bank and they passed me through to the fraud team who cancelled my card and refunded the money. This payment was taken out on the same day of me signing up for the free trial so I didn’t even receive the tablets And still haven’t. I emailed them that same evening and still haven’t had a reply. I’m just glad I always check my bank at least 5 times a day as I run a business if I didn’t I wouldn’t of noticed the missing money or been able to get a refund. They took the payment using the name KEY MOMENTS.

    Reply
  91. I bought these tablets aiming to lose weight and i thought that £4 each for p&p was a great price for a trial. I didn’t realise that it was a 14 day trial and they would then charge me. I have had 13 days free trial and it is due to be up tomorrow however the scumbags have already taken £284.40 from my bank account which was to make my car payment.

    I’ve emailed demanding the money back as they had taken it before the trial ending date.

    I’ll never order anything like this again!!!

  92. I bought some from them and now I don’t know how to stop them taking more money from my account cause they tried already and I just hope they didn’t take any money and I never signed up for them to keep taking money from my account so please give back if you have taken two instalments of £49.00 cause this money is for bills not for you to take when you want to.

  93. I too fell for this scam, got a txt from the bank asking for my authorisation of payment, txt back no! Received a call from bank to say that I had subscribed to this company, after reading back through their terms and conditions I did agree to subscribe but nowhere does it say how much it’s going to cost you, anyway to get back to the point, the bank refused payment I just have to change my card to stop them trying it again, I also found a page for cancellation of order which may be helpful it is csm123.com
    Hope this helps.

  94. Its a huge scam, can’t believe I fell for it. The site looks legit but i have also struggled to contact them and they have taken £160 from my account. Hopefully the dirty thiefs will be caught soon, untill then I will be more careful what I sign up for

    • The exact same thing happened to me. I did not get any confirmation from them nor did I know of any 14 day trial. I have contacted my bank and cancelled cards etc and went onto cms123.com which said:

      Your cancellation order has been received. You will no longer be receiving our products or communications about our products and any pending orders will be cancelled and no further payments will be billed to you.

  99. I have been charged £158 for free trial that i never received. Sent about ten emails to them telling them that i hadn’t received it, not to send me another delivery and to stop any further deliveries. They have replied but only to say that the delivery will be late. Even after all this, they still charged me so didn’t even get a chance to send back after two week trial .

  100. I just received my statement and was shocked about a £158 charge for the free trial.I responded also to a pop-up and tried really hard to find the small print.I was also confused because it said first£4 for delivery but when I ordered it it was£8 and now the £158.I saw their customer service e-mail address and that gave me some reassurance because I once fell in such trap but there were no contact details at all.It seems that does no matter at all.
    This is absolute meant to m i s l e a d customers and a very deceptive way to trade.Should be forbidden and they should be sued for this.I cannot understand how such company can exist.

    • It seems that you cannot now order through their website Slimwise UK as they are probably using another scam name. I have had an email back from them this morning after I stated I wanted to cancel any further products. They have asked me to return the products (2xkeytone and 2xcleanse) wthin 30 days of my original ‘free trial’ offer for a refund. Whether I get it I am extremely doubtful but my credit card company will pursue them if not ! I see from all your comments that the company return address keeps changing. The one they gave to me is Postbus 6176, 4000HD TielNetherlands !! Total scam.

  103. I am taking medication that makes me act impulsively, but normally I am very careful with anything I order online. I can’t believe I fell for this scam, it’s not like me at all. I usually stick with major companies such as Amazon & eBay or I buy directly online from a shop or store I’m familiar with. I must’ve been woozy from my meds, so I can’t remember which website I saw these items on. I don’t remember seeing any terms or conditions, which makes me believe the box to tick saying I had read them was automatically done, not by me.

    I received a box with 4 items, 2 of the ketones & 2 of the colon cleanse, whatever they were called, but it all said Slim Wise on the bottles. There was no paperwork included, such as an invoice. I thought that what they sent me was a lot for a trial. They took out £8 twice from my bank account, so I thought “Oh Well”, but when they took out 2 lots of about £150 or so later on,I flipped out.

    My bank wasn’t very helpful. I called the main number of the bank & was told since I willingly gave them my debit card details, it would ‘t be considered fraud. They gave me 2 numbers to call to reach the company, but I got a recording, which I think was coming from the U.S., even though it was a UK phone number. Very dodgy indeed. The bank canceled my debit card & are sending me a new one. They said they would put a block on this company. I told them they use different names. One said ILOVEKETONE& the other said EASYEFFECTIVE CLEANSE. The bank assured me they put a block on.

    I received this email from SlimWise Cleanse

    I did this a few days ago & so far, when I track it, it says it’s reached the Netherlands. How long is it supposed to take & is it a legit address.

    • My post was a little garbled, with part of what they said in the email, mixed up with what I was saying. They did offer me a full refund. There was a UK address & one for the Netherlands on the box. Slim Wise said to return it to the Netherlands address.How do I make sure I get the refund? Has anybody ever received a refund from them? If so, how long did it take?

  109. Also been scammed. I live abroad – I ordered what I understood was a free trial when visiting UK. Only when I checked my credit card statements for the past three months do I see they’ve taken £462 (!!!), and two packages arrived at that friend’s home in UK without my knowledge, so I wasn’t able to cancel sooner. I’m a pensioner and NOWHERE did I agree to buy. Can’t believe I’ve been scammed. Not sure that the bank here can do anything about it, but if anyone can let me know how to try to get reimbursed (Fraud Squad?) my email address is with this page’s authors. Sick to the core over this. I don’t have savings or income (£462 is far more than my monthly pension)… What bastards!!!

    Reply
  110. Wow, so many have been scammed. I’m glad I checked on it before ordering >.< You should all contact your credit card companies and see if they can get you your money back. They should be able to do it, and if many have contacted them they'll know that this is a scam and it should be easier for them to refund you.

  116. Nothing comes uI am so so so very against this trial order

    My sincere advise to one and all. Never order any of these products. Its always a catch
    20 to it
    nder the title category
    FREE… There is a catch to it. If you notice all these trial bottles make a deal saying it
    will be sent on monthly basis. This is usually what thet write
    Once you do not wish to receive this product please notify us and we will stop your future orders

    Then you hit the big brick wall …that is no answers or their lines are engaged . They will
    ask you to leave messages promising to return your call. The story goes on.

    I have burned my hand once and never never never again will i ever order a trial sample

    Readers you will bless me. Dont fall into this trap

    Better pay a bit more and get one of the product desired and cut your losses

    Reply
  117. If you sign up for somthing like this there are a number of things you can do.

    1, As soon as you sign and first payment (e.g ‘free’ trial postage) goes out of your account then phone the bank and state your card has been lost. No further payments will be able to be taken with the old card details. Probably better to have a dead account for this fail safe that you only transfer what you need (or think) you should be paying into it.

    2, Go to the bank and state it is an eronious transfer, under banking legislation the bank has to refund you your money (on the spot) and then chase the company for it. If enough people do this then the banks will just block payments to said company.

    3, if you change your mind within 14 days of making an online purchase (including from reciept of item) then you are covered under the distant trading laws/legislation and entitled to a full refund and cancelation of any contracts signed into.

    4, On a side note if these magic beans (pills) dont do what they say on the tin then you are also covered under trading laws such as miss representation of goods (if done knowingly is against the law e.g. fraud) and product not fit for purpose e.g. a chocolate fire-guard would fit in this category.

    Good luck with getting your money back, my advice is if you see a product online like this then check and see if you can actually buy it in a Boots (uk) etc if not then I would use option 1 above as this is the least long term hassle for you as you make the order then phone the bank, otherwise just avoid it like the plague if it is really that good it would be stocked in stores all over the place.

  119. This guys are just very dubious, I thought I will be paying just £8 for shipping cost, to my shock I got a bill of £157,tried reaching them all to no avail, sent an email and they claim they cant refund due to health and safety reasons, this is indeed an eye opener that nothing is really free. I have informed my bank ,I hope they can claim my money back. Now I have to think not twice by 3 or 4 times before purchasing stuff online.

    • Exactley the same as me. I went into the bank the next day and spoke to the fraud team on the phone, they said I should contact them first but if no refund is given in 14 days they can raise a dispute.
      Initially no response from my email, then after a second they said the sme as you quoting H&S and sent me there terms and conditions. I replied back quoting from there T&C there 14 day tria offer which was included.
      They responded saying return the items (which i havent recieved yet), then request a refund – lets see what happens.
      Incidentley I have cancelled my debit card and ordered a new one.

  124. I have also fell for this scam. However a lot of people are not getting there full money back. I would just like to say that depending on how you pay credit card/bank card. You still have certain rights under the consumer credit agreement also again depending on how you pay, you should be covered for this type of thing Mastercard or visa.
    Notify your bank or credit card company immediately and order a new card and tell them what has happened, they should send you out a form to fill in, send this form back to them and let your credit card company or bank look into this, they should see that this is a scam and reimburse you the full amount. I no a specialist in any way but I think this is the normal procedure.

    Good luck

  125. An additional warning:

    This company can pass on your details to third parties and/or under different company names deduct money from your account.

    Some transactions may take 7 days before they show up on your account. So you will need to be vigilant and check your statements regularly even after your initial payment.

    The best step to take to prevent future deductions is to stop your card. However, bear in mind that you will be without the use of your card for up to 5 working days and can only make cash withdrawals by going into your bank branch.

  126. I purchased this so called wander drug, but I can tell you it doenst work.

I have sent them aprroxiamately 8 emails since January chasing the refund and it has not come. DONT SIGN UP ITS A SCAM AND A RIP OFF
