    You need to contact your credit card company to dispute withdrawal and they will protect u from further withdrawals from that company. I contacted my credit card company and they are sending me a new card as it has been compromised. They said up to 3 months to resolved.

    I have had the same thing happen to me, only ordered the free trial last Thursday with only postage to pay and lucky enough I checked my credit card to find that they had charged me $104.59 x 2 plus postage of $8.06. Looks like they charge a different amounts every time they send these products out. I spoke to my bank on the Monday to stop them withdrawing any further amounts and they too will be investigating this on my behalf. The address on the box is the same - Profast - [protected]@getslimpackage.com, P O Box 864 Mascot NSW 2020.

    Hi guys,
    Please let me join the frustrated group of you out there!
    I too ordered Colon cleanse and have been charged over $200, hmmmm... it appears we have been ripped off.
    I would like to know where we go from here. Consumer affairs?
    Does anybody live in Sydney? Can someone wait at PO BOX 864 in Mascot, and then get the owner of the box to give us our money back by any means neccessary?

    Looking forward to your responses,

    have contacted the police and cancelled my card. I am thinking of also contacting current affair programs and asking them to warn others.

    I have also been scammed. Amounts of $103.45 X 2 and other postage and handling charges were also charged ot my credit card. Have tried emailing the company with no avail.

    My bank is now going to recoup my money but it took a lot of running around, but there is a lot of running around. Also it was embarrassing because the policeman was treating me like a dumb blonde.

    Wow, Yet another so called "sucker"!! I have threatened legal action and Dept of Fair trading to no avail. This company just does not seem to exist. I am posting back my trial package and plan to take this further. Keep posting updates and we should all be able to get to the bottom of this somehow?????

    talk to your bank now the money will keep coming out, reply to any emails they have sent you requesting immediate cancellation of any orders and subscriptions, not that you will get a reply but the bank will need these to
    justify them refusing further payments to these creeps. But please make sure you talk to your credit card company or bank otherwise the payments will keep coming out, most of the banks are aware of the scam and will assist you.

    I am another victim. I think we should all report to the police seperately so they can take it seriously.

    I went straight to my bank and cancel my credit card, filled out a form stating that I did not authorize these transactions, they sent me to make a police report to be returned to the bank, a week later i got a form to sign and today the money was refunded. so guys make a fuss and you may get somewhere and this company may get their just desserts
