Microslim – ASA ruling

Posted 13 October 2011

Sandy Brittz  and Johan Brittz  are two individuals who sell products (Be-Trim, Microslim, Organo Slim) with no evidence that they can result in weight loss. In fact, as suspected, the products may be the same rubbish but given different names ("if this one does not help you, try this other one"). The owner(s),  Sandy Brittz  and Johan Brittz who we have previously written about, live the high life in Lladudno, off the proceeds of these baloney products. You may be as curious as I was to know where they live: here

ASA Ruling, Be-Trim, again.

Posted 22 August 2011

This is a company that sells there scam products under a number of names. The owner, (Johan Brittz)   who we have previously written about, lives the high life in Lladudno, off the proceeds of products that have no proof of working. 

This is the result of a breach complaint made to the ASA.

Organo Slim, again!

Posted 04 August 2011

Readers will be aware that there has been numerous ASA rulings against this product's claims, and other variants being sold by the same individual, Johan Brittz, who lives in the very expensive area of Llandudno.

Here the complainant argued that the same unsubstantiated claims are being made and that the owner is flagrantly ignoring the ASA's rulings.

Easy Thin

The weight-loss product, Easy Thin, is a product owned by Sandi Brittz. The product is advertised at w ww.easythin.co.za. Can you believe any of the claims on this site?

Here is a clue. Sandi Brittz is a member of the team (and Johan Brittz) that also sells Organo Slim and Be trim. Both products do not a shred of evidence that they work (never mind whether they are safe). Without evidence, these products may be nothing but scams.

The site claims “Easy Thin is a South African product, manufactured by a registered pharmaceutical company. Both company and product is fully registered with the South African Medicines Control Council. Registry Number: 017201″. Firstly, this product is NOT registered with the MCC. Fact! Secondly, how it is possible that Easy Thin, Organo Slim, and Bet Trim, all have the same registry number? mmmmm….. Looks like a big … Read the rest

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.

Be-Trim / Organo-Slim – Previous ASA rulings

Be-Trim and Organo-Slim, both products being sold by the same company, have not a shred of evidence in support of their website and advertising claims. In fact there is no evidence that the individual ingredients per se have any effect on weight-loss. Without evidence, one may conclude that the product is simply a scam. 

The ASA has previously ruled against these two products. These are listed below. A breach complaint has been laid with the ASA against both.

ASA Ruling: Organo Slim / Betrim

 

 

Note: This product is a scam  Read this precautionary story!

 

“Given that the respondent not only repeats its offense of making unsubstantiated weight loss claims, but also that it appears to employ the same unfounded marketing strategy for at least two of its products, the Directorate is satisfied that an Ad Alert in terms of Clause 15.4 of the Procedural Guide is justified.”

If you see an advert for this product, is is likely contrary to the ASA ruling and we would appreciate it if you could comment at the end of this post as to where you saw the advert.
