Wu Yi Tea or Acai Berry

Seems that these people don’t know what they used for their weight loss.

Here they credit Acai Berry:

And here they credit Wu Yi tea:

In my previous post, I wrote about how I had been unable to find any studies that supported the claims for Acai Berry having anything to do with weight loss, or “cleansing of built-up toxins”. I have been even less successful to find anything suggesting that Wu Yi tea helps getting rid of unwanted pounds.

The one study I found had been done on rats, and concluded:

April 20, 2005 — Both black tea and green tea are good for diabetes, a rat study shows. They also prevent diabetic
animals from developing cataracts.

The findings appear in the May 4 issue of the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry.

“Black and green tea represent a potentially inexpensive, nontoxic, and, in fact, pleasurable [blood-sugar-lowering] agent,” the researchers write.
“Tea may be a simple, inexpensive means of preventing or retarding human diabetes and the ensuing complications.”

In the study, the researchers gave green and black teas to diabetic rats for three months.

They found both kinds of tea inhibited diabetic cataracts. The teas also had a blood-sugar-lowering effect.

To get the same dose of tea given to the rats, a 143-pound person would have to drink 4.5 8-ounce cups of tea every day.

The researchers recommend that tea — black and green — should be studied for an antidiabetes effect in humans.

Tea may help prevent diabetes and cataracts

I don’t see anything about weight loss in this study. But of course, claiming that Wu Yi tea helps rats not to develop cataracts might not be such a good selling point as to claim some unsubstantiated weight loss from it. Who is going to check anyway? The people in the ad lost weight, didn’t they?

I really wish there was a way to regulate these weight loss scams on the internet. Preying on people desperate to lose weight. People looking for a magic pill. Ending up just losing money instead of weight.

Hi, hope this comment works I’m still somewhat new to this whole blogging thing.
interesting post! I discovered your blog while
Googling other people’s weight loss stories. I’ve actually just started blogging about
my “weight loss calculator” (link removed) – I lost over 30 pounds in a month
with a diet I developed!

I would appreciate it if you could visit my “weight loss blog” (link removed) and let me know what you think.
Warmest wishes,

How funny. I get a comment from someone promoting acai / cleansing. Obviously she didn’t read my post.

Hi, i ordered acai burn for a friend who is desperate to lose weight, what i ended up getting was a bottle of wu-yi burn. i asked her if this was the same thing she received before and i got a “definitely not”. when she asked the acai burn company they just told her they were remodling the bottle but when we looked up the main ingredients they were not the same although they did contain some of the same ingredients. this is a major scam and i ended up shelling out a lot of money for the wrong product.

Same thing happened to me. Ordered and paid for Acai Burn but was sent a bottle of Wu-Yi Burn instead. Company won’t replace wrong product with the right one. I’m going to report them to the BBB and contact my attorney.

got wuyi burn also in the post yesterday instead of acai burn, are they the same. have never seen the bottle of acai burn before so cannot tell if ingredients are the same

Well i happened to try the free trial on wu-yi tea for 1.99
when i received my package i also had a bottle of acai burn so i was little confused and figured maybe theyre affiliated or somthing so im doin both and its only been 3 days.i guess i shoul try one at a time. i looke up the acai burnmy bottles looks like the original acai burn.

Hi I too, a botle of Acai Burn and got a bottle of WU YI Burn instead. I am confused as I have never heard of WU YI Burn before. I am ending this product back with the expectations of getting what I asked for in the first place.

hey…i too got a bottle of WU-YI Burn instead of Acai burn.What’s going on??? Are they the same or just a scam…
What should i do now??? Try WU-YI Burn….confused :s
I’m afraid that they are gonna charge more from my credit card..

“Are they the same or just a scam….”

My guess would be that they are the SAME scam.

For you that signed up for autoship, I would suggest that you send them a certified letter to cancel it (hopefully you did get a mailing address with the shipment). Then dispute any charges to your credit card.

Good luck!

hi, i too ordered a botle of Acai burn and offered free-trial but was then charged 97.95 AUD. does anyone have contact details so i can stop this from happening again. thanks

Hi surprise surprise i too ordered Acaiburn and received Wuyi burn so i rang up and spoke to a very rude woman who insisted that they are the same but they don’t have the same ingredients. I totally feel ripped off and they keep taking money from my account even though i did a one off payment – no membership. What’s going on?

here are some numbers you can ring from the UK – Acai customers 08006800623 Wuyi customers 08000470987 but be warned i’ve been trying to get through and no answer today.

I ordered a bottle of Acai Burn and got it OK. However, (like other folks), I’ve now received 3 bottles of Wu-Yi Burn, (which I didn’t order), & as it has no paperwork in it at all, feel really in the dark. I’m going to send it back with a note saying I’ll not pay for it & want NO more! Carole H.

Welcome to the gang i see myself saying after reading all your posts.
I ordered Acai and got Wu Yi and after 3wks have not lost a lb

I have jus rang 08006800623 and they are now shippin acai burn to me although she said it was the same as wu yi i said that if i order acai then thats wat i expect. You dont order Nike trainers and get Nake ones for instance if even they look the same!!

Is this all relating to an add possibly on the side of your Facebook pages? I too did a questionnaire to see if I qualified to obtain a trial of Acai Burn for $4.99 or so. I was told that I did and to submit my credit card details. The site crashed as soon as I put my details in and so I thought never mind and couldn’t be bothered to try again. A couple of weeks later I received a bottle of Wu-Yi Burn but thought never mind as it was only $4.99. Was I wrong about that? I suddenly noticed multiple debits on my bank account in random amounts totally £117 GBP. I was sick with worry and reported it as a fraud. My bank told me that they would not treat it as fraud because I had entered into a financial agreement online. They gave me a US number which is not toll-free from the UK. The woman told me I had confirmed that I wanted to join the scheme and accepted their terms and conditions. I absolutely had not. This is 100% a scam. The telephone operator said that I should be receiving 3 months supply of Acai Burn which I did a few days later and confirmed that she would cancel my membership and gave me a reference. I live in dread every day that I am going to see more money stolen from my account. Please warn everyone about this to stop them joining something so ridiculous.

i have just spoken to my bank as over one hundred pounds has been taken out of my account, i got sent a free trial of wu-yiburn instead of acai burn, no details inside packet, could not take tablets as i had side effects, have tried to contact them, why are they taking money every few days out of my account, my bank are now sending me a fraud form. please keep track of your bank statements, its a scam.

I too sennt off for this ‘wonder product’ ACAI….I didn’t receive anything for 3 weeks then 3 different amounts of money vanished from my account – I phoned the freefone number and got them to cancel the agreement also got my bank to investigate it as a fraud which means they put a stop on any more money being claimed – It seems these ACAI people are a bunch of crooks and getting a refund is like getting chocolate out of a fence-post – AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!!!!

Yorkshire Bank do a readycash account which costs nothing to set up and does not reqire any funds to activate – open it and get your wages paid in and phase the old one out or give the ACAI crooks the new details and don’t put anything in it.
It might make them think twice????

I too have been completely ripped off – after having been assured that I could get a refund when I received wu-yi instead of acai, i wasn’t, and have noticed various different amounts being credited from my account. These amount to £145 GBP in total, with large sums and smaller ‘membership’ amounts, yet I have nothing to show for it! I have been trying to get through and can’t – am not sure what to do next…any clues? I live in fear of being sucked dry from these criminals – I just hope people read this before they get involved with this obvious scam!

I too!!!! The link was ‘comment j’ai perdu 35 livres en 2 mois’ with 2 free trial but not free. I pay the shipping and after 14nd from order they charged me 60$ US on ACAIBURN and 79.95$ US on PURE-G-Health the same day so I cancel immediately my credit card (VISA).
So i don’t have anymore credit card and they can’t charged me again because all the preauthorisation are canceled

see also fraudulous companies: acaiberry select, acaiburn, cyprus, pure g health, ihealth solutions, colon cleanser

So I guess there’s no hope for the ones who want to lose weight….Everybody lie about it. Thanks for the info..I was about to try the acai berry when saw ur page…I have lost my hope… =[

DONT LOOSE HOPE; I USE IT COMBINED WITH HEALTHY EATING AND EXERCISE;

BE SURE TO BUY THINGS USING TRUSTED SITES SUCH AS ‘EBAY’ WHO CAN INVESTIGATE WHEN THINGS GO WRONG.

BEST OF LUCK

I would normally not have posted MariaF’s comment as it is technically spam. However, if someone wants to try this in my opinion useless supplement, it might not be a bad idea to make a one time purchase from Ebay. In that way you will at least not be locked into an autoship scam.

TOTALLY AGREE… AVOID AT ALL COSTS! DO NOT buy this product! My Mum got stung by this scam. She purchased the Acai Burn and was sent Wu-Yi Burn. Not only did she not receive the expected product, the company kept withdrawing money from her credit card as ‘fees’. She eventually had to go to her financial institution and cancel her credit card as the company couldn’t be contacted. She did take the pills and they worked but overall it left a bitter taste in her mouth. You can apparently buy Acai products from good health food store. I strongly suggest doing this instead of being caught up in the online scam.

(wow) lol I have had payments deducted from my credit card every month for 6 months. I couldn’t find a contact to stop it. I had to cancel my credit card. I spent over $80 on an 8 sample bottle. How do I take these products? Altogether?
