LA Weight Loss Center / Fraud and scam

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I started LA Weightloss April 2007. I had wonderful results as I followed the regime. After 3 months I had lost a total of 25 pounds and it was staying off. We took a family vacation in August, kids started school in August, my father had some health issues and I wasn't able to get back to my normal regime.

I did 'hit and miss' my normal 3 times per week meetings. Was seeing a trainer and started gaining weight again. I figured I slow down on the gym and get back to some weight loss. Well, saw them in April of 2008 and wasn't able to get back in for a couple of months. When I was finally able to get back in and start my regime seriously, they were closed!

I started emailing them back in August 2008 and all I got was an email response that someone would be contacting me and counseling me via phone. No one ever did. I called their number and was told, 'someone will call you this week.' No response. Called 2 weeks later. Same thing. Now I'm done being the nice guy.

I ran into one of the counselors last month and she told me they didn't even fore-warn the counselors. They just closed.

I have made several attempts that I feel aren't necessary. They should be calling me to find out where to send the remainder of my merchandise that I've already paid for or they need to reimburse me.

I would love to join in on a class action against LA Weight Loss. I loved that place. They did a lot of good for me. But now they're screwing me over. I'm ready to be compensated what's due me.

    LA Weight Loss Center - Terrible experience
    LA Weight Loss Center
    United States

    I have paid for 108 boxes of LA Lites up front, I went to the center for a while and starting having health problems, I called and they said that I could come back after my treatments. I called to talk to someone about getting my money back because of on-going treatments and being advised against a diet plan at this time by my doctor, I also sent a certified letter to the center with my request for my money back and a letter from my doctor, it was at that time I found out they had moved with no forwarding address. I was ripped off because I was never notified of there closing. They owe me right at $600.00. I looked on the internet and found a center in another city, I called they didn't give me any information about the Durham, Cary and Raleigh centers closing, but gave me the franchise customer service number and email address. I have called 1-877-524-3571 many times and only get the answering machine, to leave a message and someone will call me back. I haven't received a call back. The email address is This company is a scam, I don't recommend anyone joining any of the center, because they might close anytime without any warning.
