FucoThin Did Not Work for Me, Vitamin Shoppe
by Terrence C. - Posted Tue November 27, 2007 @ 12:00 PM
The Vitamin Shoppe had a big promotion for a weight loss item called "fucothin" made by the Garden of Life company. They provided all of this advertisement that the product was clinically proven to help you lose weight. The instructions said that the item needed to be taken for a minimum of 6 weeks before any results would be shown. One bottle of the product is only a 4 week supply. I asked the store manager in Springfield, VA if I purchased multiple bottles of the product could I return them if it did not work and as I remember, he said yes.
Well I have been taking the product now for more than 8 weeks and the only weight loss I have experienced is the loss of approximately $150.00, the cost of 4 bottles of this product. I have not lost not even one half ounce of fat using this product. When I attempted to return the products (2 empty bottles, 1 half full bottle and 1 unopened bottle), I was told that I could not get store credit for the used products. I would not have purchased the product if I knew that I would not be able to return them if it did not work. I believe it was false advertisement on both the Vitamin Shoppe and the Garden of Life and just very deceptive business practice. I have been a loyal customer of the Vitamin Shoppe for many years, but this incident is making me reconsider continuing to shop there.
Please provide me with store credit for the cost of 4 bottles of this "fucothin" product because it did not work for me.
