The title on Seller's ad on e-Bay listing says: “Lose 50 pounds in 2 weeks with Leptovox!" The ad claims: “10 Superfoods to clear your acne and eliminate wrinkles while all the weight rolls off of you 2 weeks or Your Money Back-GUARANTEED!" “Everyone is talking about Leptovox and I mean everyone who tried it LOVED it! EVERYONE could feel it working in seconds. Permanent weight loss too. “…You Get All Your Money Back NO QUESTIONS ASKED If you are not completely satisfied!" Highlighted in yellow: “Zero Risk, Lifetime Money Back Guarantee on the Miracle Diet Product". Highlighted in blue: “Place Your 100% Risk Free Order or you can Bid NOW". “Buy it NOW… Risk FREE".

I bought 4 bottles after being lured by the ad. The product has done ABSOLUTELY NOTHING but make me sick to my stomach and made my skin feels like I have been scrubbed with sand from beach.

After 2 weeks of no promised positive results I asked for a full refund. I emailed them and the response I got back was that "I should stop eating hamburgers and stay out of the sun.." An absolutely disgraceful response. Like it's my fault!! When I mentioned the guarantee I was told that because I wasn't set up on the autoship program I didn't qualify. They refused to give me back my money and stand by the guarantee on the product.

The Leptovox company engages in deceptive, dishonest and misleading advertising on their eBay auction site. The product DOESN'T work and I will never use it again. I wish I had stuck with Proactol because I had much better success with it. The Proactol product was 100% better than the Leptovox and they stand by their 100% Unconditional Lifetime Money Back Guarantee. I'm surprised e-Bay would allow these practices.

    Thank you for your article. I had seen a similar ad for Leptovox and now I know not to purchase it. But you can't be scared out of buying things on ebay. I saw this ad for cigaletric cartridges on ebay and I bought them from http://candlermercantile.com. Best decision I ever made!

    If they didn't list all of the right ingredients the fda would shut them down. all of the ingredients that are in the pills are fda approved.

    Avoid getting scammed over and over by getting scientifically proven ephedra based thermogenics with ephedrine alkaloids. Patented and scientifically proven to energize, suppress appetite and burn fat at rest!
    Ephedra Diets with Ephedrine Alkaloids are scientifically proven to burn fat, suppress appetite and energize. Beware of fake ephedra extracts sold elsewhere without the active ingredient ephedrine alkaloids from years ago. What overweight women and men have learned is that for years virtually every professional bodybuilder, informed fitness expert and successful personal trainer would tell you the same thing. Whether you want to accelerate the burning of excess body fat, boost your metabolic rate, heighten your thermogenic output or increase your energy level, there is nothing stronger or more effective than the "thermogenic cocktail" of Ephedra, Caffeine, and Aspirin (The E/C/A- Stack"). Patented formula and scientifically proven to work without diet or exercise. Beware of fakes called Ephedra Extract sold elsewhere. Only real Ephedra, Ma Huang and Sida Cordifolia has the active ingredient Ephedrine Alkaloids. Those are the ones which have been scientifically proven to work.

    Im a dude from philly early 30's. I began taking leptovox as I began to diet (which means I started eating right). I ran about a mile a day, worked out a lil, not too much tho. Taking leptovox definitely helped me. I agree with some of the posting that it may make you sick to the stomach. But in my experience I saw that happen when I didnt take the pills right. It clearly states to take 30 min. before eating, which means you should be eating within 30 min. People who think that they can take the pills without eating to maximize results, will have stomach issues. Taking leptovox the way it says to made me feel fine. I eventually lost 19 pnds in about 2 & 1/2 months. Remember people, nuthin will supplement a bad eating habits and laziness. So, lets stop blaming the pills and take some responsibility! This aint some represenative of the company either. Im a normal dude from west philly who wanted to lose a couple pounds. Worked for me!

    I've been taking Leptvox off and on for 3 years. I don't think its the biggest miracles drug but it is the best one out there that Ive ever used. I cuts you appetite and gives you the energy to get motivated to work out. I've definitely lost over 15 pounds within 4 weeks (but that's w/ going to the gym 3 times a week). And ya going to the gym will make you lose that much but taking Leptovox makes you want to go. If I take it and don't go to the gym I end up cleaning my house for hours. Its a great product.

    I am on my second bottle of Leptovox. It's working so well my husband is now starting his first. I was sceptical at first but it really worked for me, Then again I wasn't stupid enough to buy on eBay where I wasn't sure I was actually getting the pills. Nor was I stupid enough to think anything could make me lose 50 lbs in 2 weeks.
    Read the fine print people... buyer beware.
    I also find it funny that your complaint is mostly geared to eBay and that you mention another product in your complaint... nice sales technique...

    I have been taking the Leptovox which I purchased from the website, NOT Ebay for about two months. I can say that I don't think the Leptovox has made me loose any weight. I believe that has all been due to my hard work and better eating. What it has done is improve my skin. I didn't really have any acne or "problem skin", but I do notice a "healthier" look to my skin. It seems to be less stressed looking. I know it has nothing to do with less stress in my life right now, that is for sure, but I am considering ordering more. Everything in it appears to be good for you in one way or another and if you want to REALLY loose weight we all know you have to be willing to bust your ###. Change a little at a time if you are one of those people who can't just commit to a drastic change all at once. Also remember it took a while to put the weight on. It will take a while to get it off. There are no instant cures as much as we all would like. Have patience and remember every extra set of stairs and every french fry you don't put in your mouth will be that much closer to where you are heading.

    I just wanted to say I just recieved the pills yesterday, I took 2 last night, around 8pm to get them into my system. I didnt realize the caffine amount. Well at 9pm I started cleaning the house and had more energy then I have had since I was 20. I can feel it working on me on day 2 with little sleep and following the pills the way I should be..lol. I am ready to go.
    I dont feel uneasy either, I am not a caffine drinker. I will say if you get them drink alot of water and follow the directions.. and ease into it..
    I am going to stick it out. If I feel like this everyday I will accomplish all those things I didnt think I could. If weight comes off and my skins clears even better for me.
    good luck to you all

    i dont know what to think about all of this. i just ordered leptovox last night because i am starting that atkins diet again and i wanted to really boost my weight loss. i told myself if i lose 30lbs then i can go get another tattoo so thats my goal but now after hearing all of these mixed reviews it makes me a little nervous. i also can't help but wonder if people just got scammed cause they were ordering off of some guy on ebay instead of a real nutritional website. anyways it should be here in about a week so i will update again and let you know how it works.

    Hi guys and gals,
    (I'm NO fuc****ng paid scam)

    Like all of you I started off with researching what the product promises and read the reviews from its customers.
    The product sounds very promising and so I bought the deal number 2(2bottles of Leptovox and 1bottle of 7DD).
    By reading all the positive and negative feedback, i got a mixed feeling about this product, I didnt want to belong in the 2% that fail -category.
    I dont really think the 2% is a real percentage...(businesses are somehow using this example so often like the name "John Doe") LOL
    I had been to a whole lot of business meetings and it always says "BUT there are only 2%". The joke out of this is, is it 2% that succeed or fail?

    <Here we come to the overview>

    First, I think body types, weight, age and hormones are the most important fact whether certain products are working or not.
    I'm 20, 5'4 and 115 pounds. This doesn't sound heavy like other people but there are problem areas that really make me unhappy!! T.T
    I don't exercise so much cause I have bad knees and back. I dont eat fast food 99.99% of the time. But I'm addicted to candy!! The most foods that i eat are healthy or nutrients rich but if it's meat then I'll cook it with olive oil also salad, I will mix it with olive oil.
    If you cook your food it's 100% guarantee better than buying frozen meals from convenient stores or fast food places.

    <Finally, the review>

    The first week, I didnt intake Leptovox as regularily as in the second week because i wanted my body to adjust to the pill with its ingrediences.
    The first time, I took the two pills at the same time and in about 20 minutes, my stomach started growling...I was hungry ...^^ At the end of the week, the pill made me very sleepy around at 11am to 2pm!! >.<'' so please dont drive!! :)

    In the first 6days, I didnt notice any difference on the scale but in the beginning of the second week when I began to intake more regularily(everytime, before i'm eating or drinking something), I noticed that my weight didnt drop but my mass!! ^^ I see with my own eyes that my problem areas(arms, legs, back area) lost the annoying "fat patches" :D LOL

    Nevertheless, I still get acne but overall my skin looks brighter and feels smoother.
    I still get tired from the pill at some time. If I were you, dont take the pill after 6pm because it will keep you awake for some reason. I was up until 3am each day in my second week and I was so tired~~~ T.T

    This is my third week starting..if I'll notice something else, I will keep you posted!! :)

    Hi everyone my name is Mike I too got screwed from Leptovox. I bought it about 2 weeks ago and took it about 4 to 5 days spread out. Every time I took it I got sick to my stomach and vomited. I tried emailing Leptovox for the money back guarentee and of course no answer. Is there anything I can do about this or anyone I can contact. If anyone knows anything please email me [email protected]

    I ordered a bottle and received it less than 7 days later (in Australia!)
    I have not started the tablets yet, but plan on doing so in next few days.
    I have been following a diet and have also been exercising and have lost weight (this is prior to the pills) but figure every little bit helps.

    I accept (sadly) that there is no magic pill or potion, and that you need to eat right, and exercise daily. Nothing earth shattering, walk for 30 - 60 mins a day.
    That is the real, and safe, and long term answer, not a pill.

    That said, I hope this bottle of Leptovox helps, or at least does the anti aging bit it lays claim to.
    Will post again after I have finished the bottle and let you know, but my results will factor in the diet and exercise regime I am doing simultaneously, so cannot give the pills sole credit for any weight lost.

    I suggest that instead of all the SCAM claims, people take a realistic look at their expectations, and do more than just pop a pill to expect results. It wont happen, and you will just be disappointed and let down.
    Sure their ad sounds great, but come on people, we all know from bitter experience, it simply 'aint that easy!
    But in conjunction with a 'good' diet and daily exercise, it maybe can help get it off faster. That would be acceptable to me.
    I will let you know how I go.

    Ok, at all nine days into taking leptovox plus completed the 7DD. Result - no weight loss at all, just a bloated feeling that started about 4 days in. My diet is good, I am not expecting to lose weight by stuffing myself but nothing has happened and quite frankly I am not suprised. I should have known better. Leptovox must be making a fortune through this scam.

    June - 2008. Everytime I took Leptovox it made me sick to my stomach. I had severe indigestion and actually throw-up twice. Zero weight loss. Not worth taking for this much discomfort. Company does not allow opened bottles to be returned - so there goes your 100% money back guarantee. Very dis-satisified.

    I ordered two bottles of leptovox plus free 7 day detox before I read all the negative reviews and basically thought oh well, serves you right for expecting a miracle product. However, I did try to cancel the order because 4 weeks later I still had not received my package despite paying the additional premium for delivery. I twice contacted Leptovox by email requesting a refund but was politely told that my order had been shipped out and I should receive it soon. After about 6 weeks I recived notification from royal mail that my package had to be collected from the depot because there was a £15 customs charge attached to it!! I couldn't believe this as I had paid $19 delivery charge up front. Once again I ranted at Leptovox by email and received a response that this wasn't anything to do with them. So the dilemma for me was do I lose the $98 I had already paid for a product that was probably a scam or do I get ripped off further by paying the customs charge for my package? Against my better judgment, my curiosity got the better of me and after another two weeks hesitation I paid for my package. I just started the pills plus the 7 day detox today and will see how I go. My gut instinct tells me that I have been done but I have only myself (and my vanity) to blame if so.

    My Leptovox experience is similar to those who complain about scams. After 3 weeks of not receiving ordered bottles or any answer to my multiple e-mails, I notified PayPal with a complaint. I immediately heard from Leptovox (otherwise known as Blackstone Nutrition) by e-mail claiming shipment was sent but "lost." I e-mailed back telling them not to bother sending the mdse. as I had lost faith in their integrity. They sent it anyway and I returned it unopened the next day. I have sent numerous e-mails, attempted to phone (their number listed on credit card charge did not work), and finally filed formal complaint against Blackstone with PayPal. This is not a firm that has integrity. I would warn anyone to not order their products.

    I somewhat agree - I have been taking Leptovox for 2 weeks and have not lost one single ounce. I will, however, give it another week or so, but don't hold out much hope that the miraculous will occur in that time.
    It's a shame, because I DID do the research before I ordered the product, but have nonetheless been disappointed with the results thus far.

    I have been using Leptovox for two weeks now. I have blogged my daily progrss, but I haven't posted it yet. I want to wait until I have some real results to share. However, they did make me feel ill at first. I believe this was because I wasn;t properly fueled. I thought it would suppress my apetite. So I took the pill and left home without bringing any food, thinking that I wouldn't get hungry. Thought I was going to pass out. That was my fault. Basic biology tells you that your body needs fuel. Lesson learned, let's move on. So after I found my balance, taking the pill in the morning and bringing a piece of fruit and just going on with my day, I found that the weight does indeed come off... slowly for me. I've probaly lost about 4 lbs since I started. HOWEVER, I did want to see how much weight I would drop, taking the pills and that's it! No change in my diet and no exercise. Well... What the hell do you think happened? NOTHING!!! And what do you expect? If you want a perfect body, then you have to move you bottom and watch what you eat, especially those us who are over 35.

    Here's the thing: I will continue to take the pills, but it's largely b/c I paid for them. I absulotely have noticed that my skin seems firmer. I can attest to the fact that you get a bit of a high, probably b/c of the caffeine in the Grfeen Tea and the first day I took it, it seemed to lift my spirits. Since then, my husband has told me that I've been grumpy <blush>, so I gotta watch that. Also, if your daytime schedule requires that you be detailed, you might want to take extra care with your tasks until your body adjusts to them.

    Going forward: I am going to implement exercise and turn down the bad food choices and see what happens for the rest of the bottle. But wouldn't you drop weight if you ran around the block everyday and skipped the cookies, pills or not? I think you would! The pills do help with the psychology of it though.
    Think about it: I bough these pills, they are supposed to give me energy and burn my fat! Suddenly you have the NRG to do the work out and the dial on the scale starts to move! How ever you get there, get there! If you need pills, use these. They are relatively inexpensive, there are no harmless chemicals and once you fimd your balance, there are no siode effects.

    I know this entry hasn''t been helpful because there is no useful information in it, but I will post again after I implement the exercise consistently and watch my intake.

    `The above item was purchased on the 30th June and a shipping charge of 16.95 was paid. To date 15th July nothing has been received. I have noticed a similar complaint from this company. When you return to the web page there are no contact numbers and the 'Track my shipment' notification is useless and there is no where to track it.

    I am just a consumer.I am not writing a "scam" complaint.All I know is that I gave Leptovox 30 days and I saw not one result.My skin isn't bad so I don't know if I would have noticed a real improvment or not, but even with a strict diet, eating every 2 hrs and working out at least once and sometimes twice a day, which I had already been doing for sometime before I started this, I lost 3 lbs the first week and then nothing else.I was just looking for a little boost to help along the diet and exercise.I can't say that I feel ripped off but it did nothing for me so it was a waste of money.I have tried other products before so I am not surprised that it didn't work.

    The 7 day detox did not agree with my body, it gave me headaches, dizziness, and dried my skin out BAD. But I have been using the normal leptovox pills and it seems to work very well as long as i drink lots of water. I have lost some weight, in only a week. Not sure about the skin yet, but at least the dryness is gone. I have also noticed an increase in energy. I am going to keep using it, following a sensible eating plan and moderate excercise. I will follow up soon.

    I have been taking Leptovox for 2 weeks. I read all the reviews - the good and the bad - prior to purchasing.

    I am a 23 year old female, 130 pounds, size 6. I'd say I'm pretty "normal" but I started a work-out routine and wanted a little extra boost. Plus the info about clearing up skin is pretty appealing. I don't have bad acne, but I do get the occasional break out.

    I am taking one pill in the morning before breakfast and another before lunch. I have found that the first pill is much worse for me. The first few days I was so nausious I was in the bathroom trying NOT to vomit. Despite drinking a whole 16 oz. with the pill, it is just too harsh. I have found that eating a few bites before taking the pill and finishing breakfast immediately after taking it reduces this feeling. It also depends what I eat.

    Today I had a few bites of a banana and then took the pill with a full glass of water and then finished the banana. I had barely thrown the banana peel in the trash when I was sprinting to the bathroom.

    I am thinking about only taking the pill with lunch because at that point I won't have a fully empty stomach.

    GOOD LUCK, everyone.
