Posted 25 July 2013

SandiJohan and Sandi Brittz are the scam artists behind Be-Trim, selling the same product under a range of names and ignoring ASA rulings. This complaint to the ASA points out that Caxton publishers,

Weightloss24.co.za, new scam from Johan Brittz / Sandi Sackstein!

Posted 17 June 2013

As previously posted on CamCheck, Johan Brittz, the person behind the scam products Be-trim and Organo-Slim, is living the high-life in Llandudno, and continues to roll-out scam after scam. He simply ignores ASA rulings. He has selling  Be-Trim under the guise of weightloss24.co.za.

SandiSacksteinUpdate 21 October 2013: It has come to our attention, that the actual person behind the product is Sandi Sackstein.


In fact, it does appear that Caxton Publishers, owners of Vrouekeur, are also ignoring previous ASA ruling by continuing to accept adverts from individuals such as Johan Brittz and Miracle Magnesium in spite of previous ASA rulings (both adverts in the 14 June Vrouekeur. As consumers, you can ask for Vrouekeur to reimburse you what you spent on these scam products (the Consumer Protection Act allows you to).

ASA Sanctions against Easy Thin (Betrim/Organoslim/Johan Brittz)

Posted 12 January 2012

In this ruling, the ASA has bared its teeth. Johan Brittz is the person behind the scam products, Organoslim, Be-trim, and Easythin. Clearly without conscience, he simply changes the name of the product, and/or the formulation, and continues to sell these scam products.

"The complainant firstly objected on the basis that the weight loss claims made are false, and have no scientific basis or proof. In addition, the claim that the product is registered with the MCC is also not true, and somewhat suspicious, seeing that the registration number quoted is the same as that quoted for the respondent’s Be-Trim and Organoslim products. Lastly, the complainant noted that the respondent has received various adverse rulings and/or sanctions for non-compliance with the Code and existing rulings. Clearly the respondent is flagrantly disregarding the rulings and the Code, and severe sanctions are warranted."

Beware of Johan Brittz!

Posted 21 March 2011

I assume you ask, why target a specific individual, and why?

Simple explanation:

Johan Brittz*, according to the registration information at Uniform.co.za, is the domain registrant (owner) of the websites (and products) Organo Slim and Betrim. As posted before, there is absolutely not a shred of proof that these products work, and therefore may be nothing more than scams.

In spite of previous ASA rulings, Johan Brittz simply advertises a product with a different name in M-NET’s TV Guide (Magic). In the April 2011 a new advert appears for a product called Microslim (www.microslim.co.za). Be cautioned, there is not a shred of evidence that this product has any efficacy.
