I recently received leaflets through the post regarding "100% natural ingredients" pills which would enable you to lose a great deal of weight in a shrt time. However, after investigating this and having been alerted by people on this site, it appears that this - however genuine it might seem, is a big CON.


People who have ordered them - if they've ever actually received any in the first place, claim they do not work at all, are very suspicious as to what the ingredients actualy are, and are also informed they must stick to a 1000 calorie per day diet (this being what would get the weight off, not the pills!)

The address differs as it seems to be a pyramid scam whereby there are several addresses around the world benefiting from your cheques/credit card details. The one on the leaflet I received was from a Dr Eileen Harris in Malmo, Sweden.

The leaflets also claim to give you your money back within a few days if you've tried them and they haven't worked - needless to say, no one has ever been successful in their request!

Just wanted to make sure no one else is misled by these people - easy enough to fall for when we're desperate to lose weight.
