I have stopped going to LA. My doctor does not want me to take the supplements anymore, my blood pressure is up. I just bought 3 new bottles of supplements $137.00. I also cannot take my bars anymore. I paid 14.50 a box for them and I have 38 boxes left. I can choose any flavor I want. If anyone would be interested in buying these things please let me know. I will be selling them really cheap. I called LA, they won't take them back and they told me that I couldn't sell them on e-bay or anywhere else, they have been checking. I could get in alot of trouble from LA if they caught me. My husband left last year after 21 years and I really need the money. Maybe if someone wants these I could say I gave them to you. If you are interested let me know. Thanks everyone for your help and support.

ok, you're being bullied. You can sell that stuff on ebay UNLESS you work there. It is done every day of the week. You paid for it...they can't tell you what to do with something YOU OWN.

Hi

Gads, sorry about your situation, but what makes you think that you can't sell YOUR bars on ebay? You bought them, right? As far as I'm concerned and e-bay, you can certainly sell them there! I found a ton of people selling them! At last check there were 171 people on ebay selling the LA Weight Loss Bars. I wouldn't worry at all about putting them on ebay. You may want to put them on there just as soon as you can in order to stay within the expiration date.

Tell LA weight loss to suck it up! :frypan:

Best, Kitty

I think that with a Dr note that you cannot take their stuff, they shoud HAVE to give you a refund. I would insist that they do, and tell them that if not, you WILL get a lawyer and call the BBB. Ask for the phone number of the District manager. The squeaky wheel gets the grease, so if I were you, I would get mad, get naughty with them, and MAKE them do the right thing!

The BBB...it strikes fear in the hearts of businesses...

And tell them all the stress isn't helping the hbp, either!

The girl at LA told me they are checking on E-bay and pulling up customers who are selling their bars, and they are getting in trouble. I don't have the bars yet, I have to go get them. She told me that in the contract, when you buy things they are not returnable.

My COD has a sign out front that says food items REMOVED FROM THE CENTER are non-refundable. It says nothing about pre-purchased items.

Also, as far as E-bay, I have bought bars from two different people on E-bay. I think their bars are much better than Luna bars, and any other I have tried, but the E-bay price is much better.

Lastly, don't just threaten the BBB, tell them (and actually do it) you will be calling your local TV news station and ask to speak with the news director and tell your story. I agree with Repo - the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

I'm telling you, they are bullying you. Search completed listings and you will find hundreds of successful sales. By the way, how are they supposed to know it is you, anyway? They are not all knowing and they don't know your ebay id nor can they find it out unless you tell them. Ebay selling isn't returning..it's selling. They are not the police of ebay.

Now, if you had worked for them, it would be a different story. Places like Mary Kay WILL hunt you down if you are a rep and are selling on ebay. Just place a disclaimer on the auction stating "I am not and have never been an employee of LAWL."

That's ridiculous that you claim that your center told you you couldn't sell the bars on ebay because they are "checking." How would they know it was YOU who was selling them? Last I checked, Ebay used Usernames (Screenames), there is no way they could find out your name unless they bought them from you. Just sell them on Ebay, it's not that hard. And its none of my business but if your husband left last year maybe you shouldn't have done LAWL in the first place instead of realizing now that you are out of money and need to sell them.

I would still push it. If your Doc says no, they should be bound to give you a refund. I can't see how they could get after people for selling their bars on ebay. If ebay allows it, and they do, then LAWL does not have a leg to stand on. It is not like you are selling plans. You are selling something that you purchased. The bars are yours to do what you please with.

Just thinking about what they are doing to you ticks me off so bad. They wouldn't do something like this to me, I guarantee you. I have gotten so much stuff taken care of that was "out of people's hands." You can't take "no" for an answer. DH is the king of this. They are picking on you because they know you are sensitive about your weight (b/c you're going to a diet center), probably know your recent separation history, and know that you're having health issues. Get yourself a heaping dose of righteous indignation, girl. It's time you decided you'd rather be a *itch than somebody's DOORMAT!

Exactly right about them pulling PLANS, not BARS. Ebay has workers that patrol every aspect. There is probably even a person specifically monitoring the health and nutrition segment (probably many). If there was anything illegal in doing it, you can bet your bottom dollar Ebay would yank them themselves. I have sold tons of stuff on ebay and I am pretty familiar with their rules (deetsmom even more so than me).

Thanks for all of your replies. I really don't want to argue with them. The manager there can really be nasty and I just don't have the backbone right now to deal with her. I am going to get on LA's site and see if I can talk to someone higher up. I have spent over 1000 with LA and once I went off plan I gained all my weight back plus more. I am going to a consuler now who told me diets don't work, you have to change your lifestyle. I am working really hard, it seems when I write down what I am eating I think about food all the time, since I am not doing that anymore it seems to be helping. If anyone is interested in my things let me know.

I wish I could talk to someone else instead of the manager at this location. I have looked on line and can't get anyother # to call. Does anyone know of a different #?

Look on the boxes of lites. I would ask for their legal department, see where it gets you.

THANKS,THANKS,THANKS
I got a # off the box and called. The girl was really nice and she is calling the center. They are going to have a paper ready tonight and I just have to sign it and I will get a full refund for the bars I have not taken out of the center and the rest of my program. The only thing I am stuck with is the supplements. Can I get rid of those on e-bay? Since I took them out of the center they can't give me my money. Thanks for all your support.

Yeah!!!!!!! Good for you, you squeaky wheel, you. As long as the seals are not broken on the supplements, you should be able to sell them on ebay, no problem.

Dairy Fairy

Yes, you cansell those on ebay IF they are unopened. I don't think ebay will allow the sale of vitamins and such that have been tampered with...probably a federal law or something silly like that ;)

See, you have GOT to stand up for yourself in life. Like I said before, sometimes it comes down to being a *itch or a doormat. People generally don't like either, but it's much funner to be the *itch so I say do that.

The girl at the LA center is not a very nice person. I did tell the girl I called that, and that is another reason that I won't go back. She also is giving me my money back on the web site that I purchased. Thanks so much girls for all of your help. The supplements are not open so I will put them on e-bay. I probably won't post here anymore since I am not going to do the LA thing. Thanks again for being such great friends.

Me too Mary! My grandma is the queen of getting naughty with people to get things done. Sometimes too much so. Her last name is Pfeiffer, so we have a little saying in our family if we need to get onery. It is called "Going Pfeiffer on their a$$!"

EXACTLY. You can sell them on Ebay, pass them out to your neighbors, run over them with your car...WHATEVER YOU WANT-because you bought them and paid for them.

I am glad that you got some money back for the things you could not use. Good luck in selling the supplements on Ebay-I hope they sell for you.

I actually listed one of my old plans and mine got pulled (no one else's did that week :mad: just MINE) but the food and bars can totally be sold, Ive sold product before with NO problems.
