(Franchise Pick) In what has become an all-too-familiar refrain, a former LA Weight Loss customer has reported that the La Quinta, CA weight loss center closed abruptly, stranding members with neither a weight loss plan nor the products or services that they pre-paid for.
Jody Feingold writes: “Another one bites the dust… La Quinta, CA closed without notice. I paid for my program with the maintenance plan in advance, including the supplements and the LA Lites. I am out over $1000. The owner does not return calls, and neither does the corporate office. How is this not being investigated nationwide!!!”
This brings our unofficial death count to 60 recent reported closings of LA Weight Loss Centers. See the latest list here: LA WEIGHT LOSS CENTER CLOSINGS (updated 10/3/08)
Victims report centers selling thousands of dollars in prepaid services shortly before closing. If this happens to you, report it to your credit card company and State Attorney General (Contact List of State Attorneys General).
